All attacks come down to one thing…killing masses of archers.
Everything else is prep for that.
There are 3 ways to kill archers: Scout bombs. Cav smacks, and Mech waves.
Sadly, sct bmbs are becoming obsolete with the number of archers folks have now. An optimal sct bmb will kill 20k or so arch. If the target has 500k arch in his city, you need 2.5 million scts MINIMUM to kill them. Plus the scts you needed to kill his scts.
Making and feeding over 3 mill scts is very expensive
You also have to clear out most of their warriors, or your sct bmbs will kill those instead.
If they have 3 times the amount of warr as they do arch, you will waste your scouts on killing warr.
That is where “Clearing Waves” come in. Every method of killing archers efficiently requires clearing waves. I will get to later.
BUT!!! If you are working as a team, ech member of the team can have around 2 mill scts, and that is very doable.
