Preparation for Race Against Time

You will have limited time to destroy barbarians. That means that your barbarians must be close to each other and there must be enough barbarians so you do not lose time with walking. 

Most important is that you sent your troops to the first barbarian that you will destroy in the area that you think is full of barbarians before you start the event.

 You can Race Against Time event with your alliance members, you will all get the same amount of points but for this, you will have to use voice chat. With voice chat, you will be able to coordinate attack so you do not go separate ways. 

Best commanders for Race Against Time

First, you will have to use cavalry troops and commanders because you want to have high mobility and damage. If you go with infantry units you will be slow and lose time especially if you have tier 5 infantry. 

You can also use archers if you do not have enough cavalry units but just avoid infantry and siege. 

Take all peacekeeping commanders that have bonus damage against barbarians like Boudica, Lohar, Minamoto, Belisarius, Aethelflaed etc. For secondary commanders use nuking cavalry commanders like G.khan, Attila, Cao Cao, and if you do not have them than take the best nuking commander that you have. Point is to do as much damage you can in a short period.
