Thread: Thrower camp vs Trebuchet

    War Thrower camp vs Trebuchet

    I plan to re(build) a thrower camp to use it against trebuchets.

    question is , would 2 hits from thrower kill trebuchet?

    and, would 1 hit from treb kill the thrower?

    say enemy got 2 Treb, and I got 3 thrower.
    who will move first? thrower or trebuchet?
    IF thrower can move first, my plan is (IF)
    1. 2 thrower kill 1 Treb. 2 Treb left.
    2. 2 Treb kill 1 thrower, 2 thrower left.
    3. 2 thrower kill anotehr Treb. 1 Treb left.
    4. 1 Treb cannot kill another thrower. 2 thrower left.
    5. 2 throwers kill 1 treb. 0 Treb left.

    this is BEST case scenario. my other units shall be archers. if treb take out my archers first, its will different story, since I dont think thrower can do anything against other units (esp. melee units).

    normally I just nego with 4 trebuchet/ballista. but since I have been having quite a success with 8 archers setup against HMA units, I guess I will give it a try against Trebs.

    I am pretty positive a thrower would take 3 hits.

    thats too bad. thrower is faster to build, train, heal, and cheap><
    well how about some ballista? is it worth building to take out Treb? if they can kill treb with 2 hits then I might arrange the space/pop for it.

    Balista's are no match for a Treb, you might get one hit on them, but a wounded Balista or thrower won't hurt a Treb, the Trebs will get first shot. So a treb strike on your throwers or balista will just about take them out.

    I get to build Ballista and almost always it will go off before Trebuchets.
    This greatly favor me in battles.

    btw, Throwers are crap, don't bother using it against HMA.

    Zero...I wouldn't bet too heavy on that. Next to someone defending using only short-range, I love going up against 8 melee units. Easy flawless wins...
