I’ve been intending to write up a choose your own adventure style decision tree on choosing where to go dependent upon your goals, though haven’t yet put enough time into it.
Where you go will depend on your primary and secondary goals, such as:
- Make the most points
- Defend keeps from opposing faction
- Take keeps from opposing faction
- Increase your faction’s campaign points
- Take campaign points away from opposing faction
- Crown your faction’s emperor
- Dethrone an opposing faction’s emperor
- Steal an opposing faction’s scroll
- Have good / balanced fights with opposing groups
Remember that not everyone has the same goals, and this is a video game meant for having fun. While some people want to always play for the campaign, others want to make points, and others are just looking for good fights regardless of what else happens on the map.
