Gate Protection

Have noticed in raids of opponents that in the gate area most defensive troops ignore the offensive king and runs by the dude. Think all troops by gate area and one space beyond should attack 

the offensive king. 

I think units target whichever unit is closest, so units can’t ignore the king if there’s no other troop that’s closer

I see it all the time when the king runs past them they head out of gate zone headed down the path. I don’t mind it on offense but that means it happens in my defense also.

 

I guess units just have poor peripheral vision. I’ve seen it often enough too, now that I think about it, when I run past and go for gate towers. Apparently when you’re outside of their attack range they lose interest in the king somewhat.
