Strategic Troops are very similar to standard troops, however they differentiate in the way a user initiates them and uses them in the game. Strategic troops have slightly different advantages and disadvantages to their regular counterparts. Unlike standard troops, strategic troops mainly focus on one specific enemy type, and do much more damage to that one particular troop. There is also currently no strategic version of a siege unit.
Strategic Troops are most effective against enemy Standard Troops, and are less effective against enemy Wild Troops.
How do they differ from Regular Troops?
- Strategic Troops are Very Strong against one type of troop. They are Very Weak against two types of troops and defences. EG: Spearmen are Strong vs Cavalry, but Weak against Ranged, Infantry and Defences.
- Normal Troops are Strong against one type of troop, and siege. They are Weak against one type of troop and defences. EG: Swordsmen are Strong vs Cavalry & Siege, but Weak vs Cavalry & Defences.
Troops can be trained one in two ways. The most common way to train Troops is using a Barracks building. Tapping a Barrack will bring up an interface, similar to that of the Wall. Here the player can choose whether to train Troops, Strategic Troops or Wild Troops. This Barracks menu can also be accessed by going to the "More" options in the bottom right corner, and tapping "Train".
Healing is a similar process to salvaging Traps. Rather than troops being killed in battle instantly, there is a chance some can end up wounded and in a players Hospital. Wounded Troops can be healed for half the recourses it would cost to train them again from square 1.
