A good technique most players use is first sending your king alone to rush a tower with a spell, then using scream to keep out your units from touching the Castle Gate, and finally rush to the other side with another spell (Blizzard for Skull Towers and Sonic Blast for the rest is recommended).
Cannons are best for such a situations coz they destroy the towers in 1-2 hits. First attack use scream to attack on tower and attack the send with a spell (Sonic Blast is the best). If you have enough health (or if you have heal spell or shield) you can try going alone with your king as karman said. I do the same, frst going ahead of the king destroy the towers with my blade and SB and use heal to restore my health before I die.
Players should learn to take advantage of the run forward technique. The gate definitely won’t kill you and neither do the defending troops, if you are careful, you can always use heal or shield your hero when troops pop out. What Karman said, I use this technique already for a very long time. Run forward technique not only helps with the gate, combined with mummy and/or bladestorm this is a devastating technique to clear choke points fast.
Before the raid starts, remember the spots inside the casle gate area where towers are placed. Worst case is on both sides and then you definitely have to use the run forward/scream technique. When you are approaching the area close to the castle gate, make sure sonic blast is ready to use and check time left. Around 25 seconds will do.
Run to the right or left side first. I prefer right side, but that’s just a matter of fixed pattern I use. When you are close to the first tower in the gate area and there are two close together, make sure you are exactly between them. Activate sonic blast there. Make sure you don’t hit the castle gate, unless you have not a lot of time left. run backwards and leave the castle area. Troops should not be in that area yet. Scream and hold your troops there, even when defending troops are coming, use shield or heal to keep them alive. When troops start to move again, go immediately to the side where the towers still need to be whiped out. There activate sonic blast and make sure you hit the gate this time. Use the other offensive spell to do damage to defending troops plus castle gate.
Those players think that if anyone beats them only 98%, it makes them feel undefietable. Hehehe. Actually, they can’t lose with honor. At recesses for sure, but even at wartimes, those 7-13 missing skulls you usually get compensated for them by 97-100 skulls in the CoF.
Have opened a special thread for this. Called “Cowards”.
To my opinion - If someone succeeds to beat my base, he deserves 100%. Peace or wartime. He has rightfully earned all the skulls and/or gold.
Oh my god… I’m in trouble with the top players again… Please do keep your towers at the gate, just don’t crucify my soul… Mercy… Mercy…
Yes, you and your alli deserve some medals for being the “brave” ones It’s a good thing that you’re not a competitive player since you clearly have no idea how the war is played at the top, any top alli that have you will have a high chance of losing. Don’t worry, no top players will crucify you, they are happy that you stay unaware at low level
Correction: We do know how wars are at the top and that’s exactly why we don’t want to be there. And don’t try to tell me that I’m weak and no high alliance would want me either, because I’ve helped high alliances at war before and they can back me up.
Actually Caki, I must admit you are right. For me, it’s too easy to talk this way. I know that you guys count every skull during the seasons and every trick goes. Even not a decent one. This is the reason, by the way, you have never seen me fighting in a top alliance, even though my king level and skills are high enough. Believe me, it’s not because I was not invited. It was a choice made a long time ago.
Towers at the gate is just a small really insignificant issue here. Just a trick that will make some to scroll, cause they need to win every skull for their alliance, or the war will be lost because of them.
There are around 1-2 thousands top players in this game and the rest 250,000 are looking at them and trying to learn about tactics and skills of this game. Most of them want to be there eventually. So, the top players, even without thinking of it, are an example and model for tens and hundreds of thousands of other players.
Now, frankly, is this the right model? You know better than me, cause you see it every day from the inside. Dirty tricks between alliances. Some are very low. Grinding and cash + time spending is a must etc. etc.
Please look down there. See players at low levels. Look at what have they learned so far by copying the top players strategies. You will be surprised to see incredibly badly planned bases, towers and waves, but… 2 towers at the gate. Wow… This is the heritage of the top players to the new ones.
@ ed your clan is not a good role model…you do not play to win …you do not strive to be the best…you lanqish in your low ranking because of of high principles…haha …you put down the achievers and pretend its only because you r free player…sorry but games are meant to be won
