But at the point where you've got all these level 80 GB's, whats the point in even having the FP producing GB's anymore? I actually do not see any SAA players with capes, innos or even bg's. It's all attack buildings like HC/SC because there's nothing left to level or research.

It's a way of playing. Those players believe they can get more from GBG so focus purely on attack. Others still stick to the GB's.

I see plenty of SAAB players with Capes, Innos, and BGs.

Please correct me if I'm missing something here, but...

One of the best attack boost buildings is a level 2 Winner's Plaza in SAAB, which is 13% boost in 3x3=9 tiles. WP2 gives 13/9=1.444_% boost per tile. Cape is 4x5, so 20 tiles. If the Cape were somehow replaced with 2 and 2/9ths of WP2, the attack boost would be 28.888_%. Call it 29%. That's a great boost, almost as good as the 24 hour Tavern boost. But from what the Other Wiki says, that's equal to the increase in difficulty between attrition 69 and attrition 70. So if you're already capable of fighting beyond attrition 70, it might get you one extra fight each day. It might save some of your units, too,

But how many fights would you need to win, to get the FPs that you can get from a level 70 cape? I don't know the exact numbers, but let's say you get a reward 50% of the time, and 50% of the time you get a reward, it's FP. And let's say you're in Diamond league, so it's 10 FP. You'd need to win 4 battles for each 10 FP, so 4x7=28 battles would get you (on average) 70 FP. I don't think an extra 29% attack boost is going to let you win 28 more battles. Maybe if your attrition got to a borderline level, and suddenly you were presented with a 5-siege-camp tile to attack, but that's a rare case.

Plus, unless you don't value your time, it's a lot more efficient to get your FP by clicking on one bulding, once a day, rather than fighting 28 *more* GBG fights every single day. (And this doesn't even take into account that we can only fight GBG for 11 out of every 14 days, but I'm also ignoring the other GBG rewards, like SoH fragments..)

You are missing that a lvl 2 Winner's Plaza is not available yet.
Yeah, but it's going to be soon. And it's got a higher attack boost than a Checkmate Square, which is something that people were very ... excited .... about in the last event. I didn't know what the numbers would be before I wrote the post, but I suspected, and I wanted to make sure that the whole thing wouldn't be undermined by someone pointing out a better attack building, afterward. :)

In all honesty, if you are a dedicated GBG player your traz is making way more FPs per day than any GB in this thread... unless you have a super high arc and are very active in 1.9 threads and snipes.
If you are a dedicated GBG player you know that you at least need a good attack boost to go with that Traz. If you look at the perspective of just a single GB there are better ones than the Traz when it comes to fp's.

Yes like a chateau .. if you don’t know why I may not tell you
 
Will let my 2200/800 attack take care of GBG
So why bring up CF... I do agree it’s the second most important GB in game but traz is fast becoming a more important GB than CF and even 80 arcs. With a decent attack boost and troops, the FPs gained from the troops traz spits out are enormous!!! If your guild can keep 72 and above sectors coming in GBG then you are golden.

Because chateau is 2nd most important , traz doesn’t work alone , need Zeus, TA, Cdm etc for it to be super effective.

Of late...Chateau is losing it's shine in some ways....with new way of adding fps...it is very risky to do RQ's...we can still get some RQ's done but not as many as we could earlier with 1.9...yeah maybe HQS still ok...but then again at higher levels RQ cycle is way to long SABB- 11 aborts and no ubq
