Tier 1 troops are the fastest and easiest troops to train, and are the first troops the player begins to train. They are primarily used for gathering resourses, attacking , and defending the low level player from similar level players once their Peace Shield runs out. Tier 1 infantry and ranged troops are faster than any of the same type in other tiers, meaning they can be ideal to use in order to get to and claim a skill plot first.
All tier 1 troops are unlocked as a reward from completing the tutorial with Athena. Once unlocked it's a good idea to start training some troops, and using the academy to begin researching combat to unlock Tier 2 Troops.
As a result, it is important to always scout your enemy and plan in advance. If they have lots of traps, you're definitely going to need a lot of siege. An alternative would be to send one attack of siege to take out the defences, and another wave of troops to clear out the rest.
