Can someone shed some light on this please, I set up an orient city and had some chick come in, place her buildings on the far side of the island, troops started coming towards my city and started attacking, how is one supposed to win if you can't even build troops?

They come in destroy the town and there isn't a damn thing you can do about it. Am I missing something here or is there something else I should be doing, just totally lost, if this is how the game is played then the writers really screwed up the game.

If it was a hard AI, they do that. Generally the hard AI's will like war, otherwise its wouldnt be hard. If you cant build an army, its becaue your have advanced your city fast enough. I recommend playing with a easier AI or try sandboxs till you get used to everything so you can speed thru the tech tree faster.

if you're playing against an hard AI, you should build a few defence towers on all your islands in case of war. One tower per market hall will stop an enemy from capturing it.

Have some spare resources for more towers ready, in case an enemy lands on your island. Then build as many towers as close to the beachhead fortess as possible. This should give you time to dispatch some ships/troops. Enough towers should be able to kill the landing troops or at least delay them. Then send ships to destroy the beachhead.

As far as I have observed it, the AI will allways land on the same island and the same spot until it has conquered it.

If you're at war, the easiest option is to build a lot of war ships and disrupt your enemys traderoutes. You can also sink your enemys troop ships, if they are on the way to you.

You can build troops camps in the fortress. Try the campaign, it's a nice tutorial.
