I've managed to expand and develop a thriving business empire, blowing the competition out off the water, sometimes literally hehehe. ive run into a problem when it comes to cities apart from my hometown, ive managed to get luebeck my hometown to level 3 walls but other towns never seem to build new walls. what do i do to get them to protect my businesses? do i have to become alderman or do i have to move to that town and become mayor there?
also is there any reliable way to get my competitors to auction off their buildings? in several towns where i wanted to expand i made sure to take the ships from the competitors who live there, but in some towns (like cologne/köln) not only have they not auctioned them off but they have even expanded and built MORE buildings, even after i took all their ships! what do i have to do to beat these guys?
