View Full Version : Wall first? Or PA the DL?

03-31-2013, 10:07 AM
Please settle a dispute in our faction. One member insists that we take down the wall before PA-ing the DL. He says that the wall gives a bonus to the DL. I argue that the only reason to do that is in case you win your PA, you'll get double points. However, since we use our lowest stats to do PAs, it doesn't matter at all.

So...does the fort/wall give a bonus or not? I need independent confirmation, since he is not listening to me.

No it doesn't. So just hit them in either order. We usually have the DL down first (it's easier)

Kick him out when it's finished

In your case the only reason to take wall down first is if you have guys who can't restrain themselves from attacking other players on the list after DL is down but before the wall is down.

You should go for wall and PA straight away.

If you wait for the wall to be taken down, your PA guys are loosing health recharge time.

The exception of course is if you got some uber attacker which might be able to take the DL down ......

DL first, especially if your faction is small and is made up of weaker players.

The very first move is to take your strongest player and do 1 hit on the DL if they win hit it again and typically that will be the end of their DL.

But if you loose your next move is to take your weakest players and power hit their DL. Usually 2 power hits will do the job. This opens up their faction.

Now you have two options depending on how strong your faction is, if not very and you don't see any obvious targets then the weakest players should hit the wall since some WD points are better than none.

Option 2 is to wait till you strongest players check for targets for your weaker players. Ow here's the catch it's better to leave the wall up as you can get more WD points by attacking rival faction members than scoring points on the wall. If you don't have a lot of members you are wasting valuable hits on a wall that is sucking up your hits.

If you have a big faction or gold spenders doing regens then take down the wall since it doubles your WD points.

But this will all depend on how your faction is made up.

we have a few players to hit wall, and a couple for dl, then attack at leisure. Depending on health regen, you need to get at least one hit in quickly, so it starts to regen.

If you plan on taking down the wall, then hit it first. You only get half points for wins with the wall still up. With the DL down, players may feel the need to start going down the list before the wall is down.
