PostSubject: Xbowless playing.   Wed Aug 18, 2010 11:41 am

Well, i have heard about this a long time ago in a Game Report of Mr.X.

-someone doesn't use any Xbows or Bows just Macemen and a few Knigths.

-I played it vs Fyre. Huge Towersetts and a ton of maces under it.

-Would be cool to have the enemy filled tower on a shortcut because it's hard to click on it when it's surrended by 40towers of you and 10 towers of the enemy, but Firefly doesn't allow you this

-You start with promoting Parci and Gawain and a few Knights. Move your towersett to the enemy and AFTER you move your maces, last are the knights.

-Use your parci well, because enemy merlin can do huge damage vs towers, Your maces and Knights should escape easily.

-If your first tower sett is down you should already have like 1-2 Statues. So you can start to build a Galahad. He saves your towers and Knights also.

-Delete Parci, Gawain and Galahad after every use. NEVER buy a horse for a knight till you have 5 statues.

-If you have 10 knigths, Parci, Gawain, Galahad on field and more then 600hnr and at least 3 statues you can start to build merlins in mass.

-Keep on deleting special units after use and building Knights, you Hnr should get bigger and bigger.

-If you cannot pin your enemy with this tactic, you can simply change to normal gameplay ---> but you have like 10 statues and your enemy proably not more then 2 so... it should work with normal tricks now. Wink

Ok Ive Got Some things to say

1st of all : There is NO WAY you will win a game Without use of Any Long Ranged Troop(trebs/xbow/archer/merlin)
ONLY IF YOUR OPPONENT IS AN COMPLETE IDIOT

And This is only a layout , your predicting how a battle should go

and that is always bad , b/c you never know what your enemy will be doing

a good counter attack: get knights + tower close to wall then fire rolling loggs knock off horses then finish with merlin

You must always have knights on horses inorder for this tactic to work correctly

and thus : this is impossible if you do not have good micro

The only way to 100% sure this tactic to work is to have backup towers with xbows ,

then rush with your knights + maces under free towers ....

If they get into a bad position move backup towers Forward , and retreat your knights

leave mace's as they are not as important

Another good counter attack is just to bring an empty tower group to the knights then have them attack the group , after they are getting hurt you move away and knights + maces will go around the tower instead of standing under it thus leaving them open to fire

And Last but not least ,

Your most important round table knight for this tactic , will be Gawain , As he is the only way to 100% shield your knights horse , thus giving knights more attack power + faster attack .... After Gawain use DELETE , make new + he is less honor then percy so you can micro him faster

Percy comes in secound , B/c if you do the tactic corect you can get enemy merlin with knights/king summon under Gawain

THE KEY TO THIS TACTIC IS = FLAWLESS MICRO

As in Ezchi's post i see i have forgotten to add a very important point.

-You should make the battlefield as small as you can --> only concentrate on one side of map. So you can spamm your towers so it's harder to check for your enemy where your units are.

-If you have a big enough amount of towers, and more then 1 tower sett of enemy under your claw, THEN it's mainly not important if your knights have horses.

-You have to use ALL your army in open formation, EXCEPT maces, they are easier to control in no formation.

-The backup towers ezchi mentioned are true. (@ezchi man, now i have no advantage if other use this tactic vs me )

-After a while you should also have a few xBow under your tower sett, especially if the other use a similiar tactic.

-You can use this xBows variable. Putting them at a tower at the front, or moving them backwards in open formation if parci comes. Or maybe putting 2-3 on a tower and moving this tower behind enemy merlin....


Well, there are many different things important to this tactic.
Most important for me is to get fast statues. You have to get it out yourself what is important for you with this playstyle.

Keep in mind, this is just a fun tactic, vs a prepared player on the same lvl as you, you will have a really hard stand with this.
