Long suspected.....

Do Melee Defenders NOT have their range defense negated by range tools?

I have long suspected this to be the case, but this BR seems to indicate it is true.

The BC changed from 50/50 ranged / melee to 100% melee def on the right flank.

I negated all wall and range bonus.   He had a fire moat, and the 85/62 cast is shown.

IF the KG Sentinel has 65 range def that was NOT cancelled by the tools, we would figure:

62% Cast + 110% Moat = 172%
KG Sentinel 65 + 172% bonus = 177 * 157 troops = 27.7K+

Marksman = 132 + 90% bonus = 251 * 84 troops = 21K+

Resulting in my loss of the wave.  Can someone confirm?  Or am I missing something else? 

The left flank was the same for my setup, but he had a mix of sentinels and scouts.............

Good night.
Sleep well.
I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

    That is what I suspected, but never asked before.  ;)

    Thank you @Revolc (GB1) THAT explains it VERY well:  "Strength of ranged defenders NOT ranged strength of defenders."

    Better to ask and risk being thought a fool, that to remain silent and confirm it...............
