When building cropper capitols for large hammers on non-speed, do most people build the wheat fields as high as possible as quickly as they can to take advantage of the really high production? or build them slow as needed which allows for more focus on building troops but limits production for the extremely high cost of fields later?
Basically, level 15, 16, and 17 wheat fields are extremely expensive. It seems like the only way to actually get those built are to take advantage of the high production from having these high level wheat fields without many troops consuming even with modest (rank 15-30) raiding. Then just using this production to queue a ton of troops once the fields are high enough. Is that the most feasible strategy or am I missing something that allows building these fields while also consuming the wheat with troops?
