A general helper and explanation on wave attacks

The general idea with waving is that the first of your attacks to hit should not defeat the defenders on it's own; it should produce an inconclusive result so that there's another round of combat. Then your succeeding waves hit in the 20min of that first round; they have no effect when they hit but will be added to your forces for the second round of combat.

It's just a matter of timing attacks carefully, and being sure you don't inadvertently bash - some cunning defenders might send their troops away at the last minute so that what was supposed to be a ten-pillage-wave attack becomes just a a ten pillage bash fest. If you're sending enough waves that they might end up bashing if the defenders leave, be sure to have spies there first!

The basic outline for a wave attack is:
1. Place spies (if you're sending enough attacks to potentially bash)
2. Ensure moderate size force hits first, generating a second round of combat
3. Make sure there is a second round of combat!
3. Second big overwhelming crushing force arrives 5ish minutes later (gives you time to change plans/withdraw if something goes wrong with the first attack)
4. Check combat reports and re-spy garrison if necessary!
5. Subsequent waves arrive 5 or so minute after huge overwhelming crushing force but within twenty minutes of the initial force(again, gives you time to change plans if needed)

Wave attacks also work against ports, according to iSlut.
