Between all the hoo-hah about the new patch and kingdom, just some amusing fact. I used to have 1 Fortress Gate for my defends (for discussions about the pros and cons of strong and weak defences I refer to other threads in this forum). But a Fortress Gate is what you could call ‘pretty weak’. No attack, and no damage spell either.
After some time I though why not give my …ahem… ‘visitors’ a somewhat nicer welcome. So I decided to put up FOUR Fortress Gates. And lo and behold, this was the result:
These formidable gates have ample life and an attack of 7! This is of course including the attack from kingdom bonuses. I never realised that troops without attack suddenly do have one, due to the bonuses. Four gates even get 2 extra from Broken Spire. And every time they go off, they generate 9 extra armour! And the 15 base armour is even without the promised 8 extra for having 4 constructs (we know the Construct bonuses are broken, probably fixed in the next patch).
I guess this combo is far from invincible, but perhaps more interesting than a standard weak defence like just the hero or one Peasant. Has anyone encountered my setup?
