When I joined the polytopia discord one of the mods asked me what my favourite tribe was, so I told them and they joined me up with the hoodrick tribe. You can do it yourself for your own favourite tribe, or ask one of the mods to do it. You get a private tribe chat room, and I was lucky enough the leader of that tribe was really helpful. He hangs around the advice channel which is full of helpful people too
I was a little concerned that this might solve the ‘puzzle’ of polytopia for me, but it really looks like there are a number of strong strategies.
