    #4 - How often do you attack 3 vs 1?

    Odds gets worse when you start attacking with less than 4 troops. How often do you attack with 3?

    I voted for option 2, when it's a strategic advantage but option 3 also aplies for me. It depends a bit on the situation.
    I don't attack 3 vs 1 to often but on 12 domains if it means taking the draig tower back then I will do it but then again most people would I guess.
    If I can break a command with 3 vs 1 I would try it most of the times unless someone behind me can break it as well. Also if I can take a hut from someone with 3 vs 1 I'll do that.
    It all depends on the situation

    3v1 (2 attacking) has good odds for the attacker so I'm a bit confused. If I'm playing 1v1 or there's any strategic advantage at all in larger games (or a card to get), I'll attack - you have a 57% chance of winning.

    To get a card, to break a command (a 1 border begs breaking), or sometimes to bring an opponent down below the multiple of 3 territories or to isolate them (their 1 is alone). The first two situations also warrant a 2v1 if necessary (and in rare cases the dreaded 3v2).

    Of course the location of the 1 (for instance, blocking a much larger army) may make the decision easy.

    EDIT: I'll also go 3v1 against a neutral (or opponent) in 12 domains within a domain.

    Agree with that

    In duels and 2v2 etc. I do it all the time.
    In big multiplayer games only when I'm desperate.

    Only when needing a card for a set, and no other option.
