View Full Version : The spearton overrun strategy

My strategy is to start of buying 3 swordwrathes to defend the miners, next 5 more miners, set 4 of them to mine and 1 to pray. The rest is pretty simple, just keep buying speartons, and adding miners when needed. Sometimes a little bit of backup is required, so having a size2 giant at the back is helpful. In battle once, chaos spirit giants were coming at me relentlessly, but when about 30 or so speartons attack a giant at once, it clears up real quick with very little damage. The only thing that has destroyed them all so far for me was 5 size2 giants.

Sorry ifsomeone has already posted this strategy, I assure you I didn't mean to copy.

...you can't have 30 speartons in a whole game, especially since you have a giant and a bunch of miners...

30 x 3 = 90. You can only have 80 population in game, even if you sacrifice miners.

This would never hold out against someone who raise different types of units and launches any early offense. You'd be lucky to have time to even reach max population.

About 30? You could have 20 max, assuming you had 1 giant and 6 miners...

Albowtrosses attack giant, castle archers deal with speartons. Giant can only hit one albow at a time. Have a bunch of albowtrosses and I have destroyed this once I kill the giant. Especially if I have blazing bolts and Resilience, and I ALWAYS have resilience.

This doesn't work against someone who spam swords and giants

Are you kidding? I thought you said "I used to have resilience" when we fought?

11x7=77 So 3 miners on work? Lol. No one ever tried before this.

If you have 11 giants you don't have any speartons, except maybe 1. You wouldn't even have merics for cure so what would happen if your giants got poisoned and swordwrath raged your giants? Giants take 2 or 3 shots (can't remember) to kill a single swordwrath. I'm assuming you mean Enslaved giants so those can only hit one unit at a time. If I'm on the defensive castle archers help me further.

If you're using Chaos Giants, those kinda suck. Enslaved giants can dodge their snail attacks, albows can too I bet.

Miners take up 2 population each so 1 miner and a random swordwrath?
