View Full Version : How to counter sea of men

11-24-2012, 07:31 AM
Nowaday people use sea of men tactic such as tons of archidons, speartons or ninjas
They are very annoying and always disturb your miners at a early time, which means you will be poorer than him
Any good ideas to counter them?

Case 1: 10 Archers, running and shooting, you won't reach them by melee

Case 2: 10 or more spearton, they are going to kill all your miners and rush to the statue

Case 1: magikill.
Case 2: Wall, castle archers

Magikill is too slow to cast spells when archidons are kiting.

Case 1: few giants and Speartons
Case 2: using more Speartons with giants...

I agree, he is too old.....

1. 3 speartons and 5 archers (probably less cost wise. keep your archers right behind behind your speartons so everytime they kite you can get a volley in.)
2. 2 giants and walls with a few merics and 1 mage (cost wise i would say the two are equal, except this one requires more mana than massed speartons.)

Ninjas to take out waves of archers, sword hoard yourself (fight fire with fire) or get 5 castle archers and 2 walls overlapping each other exactly. They'll assume there's one wall, and your castle archers will mow them down like rednecks at a zombie convention.

case 1: gaint, research ninja use stealth, archers with flamming arrows, melee with a whole bunch of merics, speartons+archers, mages
case 2: gaint+ninja, ninja, archers+gaint, albowtross+spearton, merics+gaints,

case 1 :fight back with more archers flaming arrows
case 2 :albowtrosses with walls(upgraded for more damage)

a sea of speartons or swordwraths isnt going to slow at all wall max ammount of time to destroy a wall with a sea of men is like two seconds

2 walls stacked, 3 magi kill, combined can prob get speartons down by 2/3 and kill any sword wrath. Castle archers can do the rest.

4 castle archers though and a two stacked walls and three magikill are not going to stop ten archers and 15 spearton. this thread shouldnt really be here in my opinion maybe make about how to stop the enemy from getting a sea of men because if your really just letting people mass on you then there is a problem with your starting strategy.

1. 2 Giants(+some units) will crush them.
2. Magikill will blast those shields.
