Invade/Defend reasoning

I read something about this as well as the Guide regarding Invading and defending but I guess I’m slow.

I do not understand the reasoning behind Invading/Defense.

What is the use of Defending with troops under each banner or city, if all the Defending I do uses my Adana troops as Defense? (Adana being my Home City)

I’m sure there is a reason for this. Just not making sense to me. Is it just me?

You only have one defense team (your home kingdom one).

Banners are used to set up different teams for invasions.

Thanx for the answer, but it still feels…wrong. So, everybody that invade your kingdom will only fight one selection of troops?

I guess I’ll just have to get over that.

Thanx again for the reply.

Which is exactly what you do when you invade someone else…

I know. Maybe the reason it feels weird is because I thought it work just the other way round. Level 131 and I played it wrong all along LOL.

Everyone that invades you will face one set of troops, but you can change that set by choosing a banner in the “Defenders” option of your home kingdom.
