How does a 375k troop march defeat 2.375M? Missile Attack Strategy that’s how!
What is Missile Attack Strategy?
When I first wrote about Missile Attack Strategy in January 2015, the above screen shot was considered epic! Now pretty much everyone knows what Missile Attack Strategy means. It is to maximize the stats of one troop type or “missile” and fire it at your enemies for devastating results. With core crafting it has never been easier to create gear that can boost a single troop type’s Attack and Defense Debuff. See Crafting Core Equipment Part 1. Well Internet and Game of War…You’re Welcome!
Just how much boost is possible with the “missile”?
Yes, that is nearly 1400% infantry boost! An additional 450% Attack boost and nearly 1000% troop health.
My alliance quickly started production on our missiles after noticing the results of this trend. Here is an example of our own infantry missile:
You don’t have to be the Emperor to craft similar missiles.
In this Zeus stats page, notice how high the Infantry Attack is. Since discovering Missile Attack Strategy in January 2015 mostly by XxKuranxX who is now retired, Game of War has released Secret Core Recipes that function in similar ways. Each time Machine Zone (Mz), developers of Game of War, releases a new Core set it usually either for Wonder fights or a Missile Attack Rally set of some troop type! Here we obviously have an Infantry Missile Attack Rally Core Set.
Now add this Infantry attack to Troop Attack of the set and you get quite an impressive punch!
Combining the two, Infantry Attack % and Troop Attack % we have a combined Attack of 4200%! Incredible power! Zeus, the Almighty Smiter! Now, this is just part of the story! What? There’s more?! Yes! Since, May 2015, Mz has introduced Debuffs, specifically Defense Debuffs.
What are Defense Debuffs?
Furthermore, defense Debuffs work to reduce the defense of the enemy army. Also, by lowering the defense of the opposing army you effectively increase the amount of damage or Troop Attack percentage done to that stronghold or army. Lets take a look at Zeus for example.
Incredible! 1300% Defense Debuff. This will require the enemy stronghold to have high defense or get completely obliterated by a Zeus Rally Attack! So what kind of gems are we talking about here?
