    Macemen

    maybe, just a little maybe he started earlier then you?

    GGE is simple, you're either on time, or you're too late.if you're too late you have to start earlier.  (j.Cruijff)

  • that's exactly 1 of the reasons of reducing capturing time in BTH

    Thankyou for all your answers but when i go for it any tower it is immediately once the cooldown finishes, so i start at the same time as the rest start , but i am still bewildered how they get they before me when there twice as far away.

    But thanks anyways all

    then I guess it's due to them having even faster troops.
  • what is then the type of tropes that are faster than mace men/bowmen?

    maybe your using donkey's and he is using horses. have you tried moving closer to the tower 
    so you are right next door to it. if none of these and you still get beat to it it's time to 
    give up on it.

    This is simply because they haven't researched their Tower and have crossbowmen  and mace men . That's really as issue in the game nowadays for those who have already researched them.. Even if u have lvl 3 stable, 90% travels speed comm. + samu sols, global effect, u cannot prevent the player with Crosbowmen taking the fortress before u.. GGE's gotta do something for this, else forts will be a property of the one who has non-researched sols. It is happening in my server for 7-8 months :)

    How did you calculate the distance? Map is not linear.


    Put that in excel/google sheet and you can easily calculate distances between any points on map.

    military speed +50% for 2500 rubies, fast com with macemen is my bet.

    I wish I could too recruit macemens again...... :)





    Trolling and rolling since ....... who knows?

    assassins, good luck getting your hands on them

    gotta be 3 legged donkeys.  lol.

    Although 50% faster as in VIP would mean they could travel twice the distance, in the same time!
    It's not that easy, if you didn't have any speed bonuses at all then yes, it would be 50% faster. But there are a lot of bonuses being added together, ultimately making the 50% worth a lot less than it might seem. This is to be expected because you would otherwise see almost instant travel time.
  • there is daily gifts (low and rare but better than nothing) :wink:
