My teammate and I defended a war attack, the attacker used three dragons and got one flame. The attacker then went back and attack the exact base with a teammate again and got 5 flames. How is that fair or possible? What is the point of defending then?
You can attack the same base until you get 5 flames in a war. It is fair because you got the defense points for defending the first time and possibly the second time if you defended that run too.
Edit: You can win wars that are tied in flames by the number of defends. Also, another team mate could attack the 1 flamed base and the person who originally attacked it would then have to go attack a different base to get their war run counted.
Edit 2: fixed a spelling error.
They tried again. You didn’t defend the second time I’m guessing? That’s how it works…you’re allowed to try more than once until you get 5 flames. Each time you defend, whether successful or not you get a defense point as well. If you both get 250 the points decide the winner.
I thought you used to not be able to if you used more then 2 dragons. It takes the fun out of war. It’s suppose to be a challenge to test your skills not a do over.
Honestly, defending points is a huge flaw too. You can just jump in to defend then jump right out. There’s your point.
Having to hit the same base multiple times in order to get 5 flames is a common occurance, especially in higher leagues. I forget what war it was, but I remember hearing about one war that was won with something like 200 defends for one of the top teams. You only get defends like that when you have to keep attacking the same base in order to get to the 250 flame total.
I love war game, and this is not it. If it wasn’t for flying dragons I wouldn’t be playing this game just for war. I love Game Of War for a long time because it’s war.
Wow, that’s crazy.
Keep going it gets a lot better buddy
Defending is fun & it’s a big part of the wars. It’s still fun & very much a challenge regardless of how many times they try. As you grow your base will get stronger so it’ll be tough even without defenders. Idk your level or team but mine for example defends basically all war attacks very active with people in all different time zones…So you don’t have to worry as much about being caught with no defenders…They go all out on defense
And lots of wars come down to the number of successful defenses each team may have. So if you defend your base multiple times successfully that is great for the war even if they eventually get you which sometimes they don’t but your Defense could be the difference between the win or loss.
I think as you and your team keep going you will find wars and even defending more enjoyable I don’t know anything about your team but just saying from experience a good team is 75% of it if you do not have a good active team look for another one… A good fun team is a must!
200 defenses isnt even that uncommon for some teams. I remember a war where it ended with one team having over 400 and the other team winning the tiebreaker bc they had over 500. And i doubt thats even the record lol.
you wont stop the attacker that way though…
5 flames are either earned by using one of your Dragons to destroy a base at 99% or over, or one of your Dragon and a teammate’s Dragon. It’s even included in the loading tips
That part I know, it’s just annoyingly that the attacker can barely earn one flame with all his/her dragons from us defending using lots of defensive tools to get that outcome. Then that person just come right back and attack again with another teammate who can carry their attack for them to get five flames. Defensive tools does not grow on trees. It’s just extremely annoying.
Why? You got 2 def points out of that scenario. If they have to do that for 10 people that adds up pretty fast.
Would you want the opposite to happen? You only get one chance to attempt a base? Heaven forbid your game crashes, or backer loses connection or misses the join banner. That would only promote having the highest strongest member backing every attack, which it sounds like you’re complaining about in the first place.
If you are getting 250 flames on your wars, you shouldn’t be complaining about free def points
you are defending to prevent them from getting 5 flame points. You get defense point for every defense participated.
If both team gets 250 flame points, then defense point is the deciding factor. If both are still the same, the higher rating team will lose and the lower rating team will win (don’t know how many ratings is given on a complete draw)
if you disable the ability to attack after 1 time, a lot of people will complain that they experienced a crash and they can’t do another attack because of it.
I am sure you know this but there is no need to keep defending (using those boosts) after you shoot down two dragons… you can just leave the defense at that point.
Rules of thumb, never bite more then you can chew. If you can’t win a war attack on your own then you shouldn’t be attacking that base. If there isn’t a base at your level to attack then you might be in a league that is too high for you at the moment. Always carry your own weight . Don’t expect others to do your work for you. That’s the motto I stick by. So if a teammate comes along with you in a war attack and their game crash it won’t affect you because you finished the attack on your own.
Well that’s nice in theory but sucks in practice. You’re going to go against teams where your players won’t be able to take their bases unassisted. There’s going to be bases where you do need a backer to even hope of defeating it. Limiting yourself to bases you can only take yourself is very narrow minded, and have you experienced hammer spam yet?
Very simply, war runs should involve a lead dragon that preps the base (wether that’s as simple as clearing rage drain island then swapping, sanding key towers, or killing all but the farms) and then a backer that will clean the remainder up. Planning to take on bases you can take out yourself is a) not fun b) limiting your team’s potential.
experienced a hammer spam on a normal battle. I was level 180 and the base is level 120. Can’t defeat it using my Kinnarus solo because of those spamming.
hate imagining if I were to attack someone on equal level or higher then hammer spam.
That is a very well laid out plan and a good war tactic to follow by. We use that system when teams that are way higher then us declare war on us just so they can easily move up rank.
