It depends on how you use them. If you get a bunch of speartons, use shield wall, and put them in front of your statue while your archidons do the actual attacking, then a good army has just become bad.

Try using like 12 speartons then use a few giants and attack. It works most of the time unless they are really good with defense

with some mages,walls, some meat shields and heavy ranged units (flying crossbowmen with blazing bolt), that army will be crush.
best army (for land battles): 2 mages and a lot of speartons/1 medusa, 1 skeletal mage and a lot of jugger knight.
Best army (for air battle): ful corssbowmen and mages/flying archers and bombers.
worst army: swordwraths and archers/crawlers only.<- 1-2 mages with meat shield or walls can wipe out that army

The worst army is obviously nothing because nothing or a few units cannot be called an army. A bunch of merics also cannot be called an army. :P
Worst Army - Hard to say... it ALWAYS depends on what kind of army you're facing.
Best Army - 2 rows of Speartons, 3 Giants (or so), 4 Albowtross, and your 15 (or whatever) miners. It's easy to build up an army of this size extremely quickly while continuously attacking the enemy, causing him to garrison. Afterwards, he'll be very depressed and you can just garrison till troops are healed without fear of attack. Keep doing this until army is ready. Then ATTACK! Keep his troops at a minimum!

I actually found out how to make your statue turn into a Giant and when the Giant dies you lose...

Not very helpful, but a Giant does actually have higher health than statue when fully upgraded.

TROLOLOL. You see, my lag patterns are strange, I have a period where there is NO lag at all, then after a day or something, I get MASS lag... I suppose I got to 1800s when it was NO lag time, but if you checked I have fallen quite a bit recently.

Worst army has to be no army.

Best army is varied based on situation, but I like to have a magikill, some archers, speartons and a giant or two. If I can get the army at the center, I kinda won already. Although I suck at early game on smaller maps so I do really bad on them 99% of the time.

You can't target a ninja with anything in cloak.

Don't forget the hell fists on marrowkai, I bet those can do something.

And what about Castle Archer Splash damage? I've noticed that castle archer arrows that hit the ground can still do slight damage to my retreating archers.

Best: I would guess it varies. The best depends on your opponent's army, although with this account, with 20 wins and 3 losses, my opponent usually has 3 miners and I have 5 Spearton.

Worst: Statue Attack!

Meaning no army, obviously

Why do you quote random stuff..
My Opinion:

worst: nothing
CHAOS
best: IDK

Wouldn't the swordwrath get killed easy by Castle Archer splash damage? In fact, castle archers are why I usually trade my swordwrath for speartons late-game.

I personally believe a army full of speartons and few shadowraths to harrass the economy is the best army. And if they mass albowtross than one meric with electric wall can take care of that.

Late game. Yes, but in the early game and mid-game, they're very useful with Rage for damage dealing.

to be truthful, a army of swordwraths with rage, 2-4 merics and a magikill can actually be very effective, the Swords can Deal massive damage with rage at a crazy short amount of time, the merics can heal the swords, and the Magikill can provide the backup support. This usually is effective with armies that have like 3-4 giants since the rage can do enormous damage, the giants attack just one swordwrath at a time (unless the opponents smart enough to make the giants go for more than one swordwrath) and the Giants slow attack speed allows the merics to heal and the magikill to cast their spells.

Worst army has to be an army of Albowtross. Magikill eat albowtross for breakfast, so just combine that with a miner or spearton wall with a few merics and your good to go. You can use An army of archidons with fire arrows, a miner or spearton wall, and a magikill to try and outrange them. And even If they defeat these, Resillience plus 3 castle archers can send those flyers falling.

I say for bad army would be all swordwarths and that was it.:mad:
A good army would be 8 speartons, 4 swordwarths, 2 Archidons 4 Albowtross, 1 magikill and 4 meric!;) (i know that is what i think) OR JUST HAVE ALL MINERS!! LOL :p

I don't use Shadowraths and/or the Giants
although Giants tank damage and Shadowraths are fast, strong, smart, and cool.(I like the Shadowraths! :p :)) :D
But i really don't use them. :(
unless for something that can save/help me.

Check when the last post was posted. 1 magikill beats 40 miners with poison spray. 40 archers or 11 giants would beat the first army.
