This is General Bow from K86. I’ve been playing Game of War for a year and a half now and have always wondered how much stronger strategic troops were vs regular troops. I did a post (Proof Strategic Troops Are Best) on this site in the past but a lot of people complained that the strongholds were not equal and therefore the results would be incorrect. We all know that strategic troops are stronger and weaker at the same time, but by how much. So, I decided to test this theory. I built two accounts with identical research and hero gear and decided to put this theory to test...
Strategic vs. Regular Troops Data
These tests were done with equal SH 14 accounts with no heroes and equal research done. Therefore, all boosts/bonuses are the same.
Interpreting The Data
You can see both accounts are equal because when they attack each other they lose the same amount of troops.
Tests 5-7:Notice that strat vs. reg results in only 11% strat loss yet 13% reg loss
Tests 8,9: Attacking strat with reg will result in more losses than attacking strat with strat.
Tests 10,11: Attacking reg with strat will result in more kills than attacking reg with reg.
Tests 8-11: The defender lost the same amount of troops each test regardless of regular or strategic or a mix of the two, but the more strategic troops the defender had the more they killed of the attacker.
- Don't waste your time with regular troops ever
- Only build and use strategic troops for everything...
Here is a file with all the battle reports: Strategic vs. Regular Reports (keep in mind these tests were done with equally mixed troops)
