Thoughts on Regular T5 Troops

The Introduction of T5 Troops changes the whole complexion of the combat mechanics in the game. Players that weren’t previously able to be burned are now starting to get burned.

The strength of T5 hits is still dependent on how complete the T5 researches are, players cant just expect to unlock the T5 Troops and have them hit more powerful than any other Troops.

Control Point battles are now almost exclusively Dominated by T5 troops which can become very costly for players competing at a control point for long periods of time.

The cost to train T5 in both resources and speed ups is significantly more than any previous troop tier. To train over 10 million T5 costs approx 20k days and over 100 Billion of each required RSS. This means players should be smart with when they use their T5 otherwise it will become very expensive, very quickly!

As its only T5 regular troops released currently, once Advanced and Mercenary T5 are released the variety of hits made will be much greater.

Trap accounts and players that take rallies will need to account for the added strength of T5 troops especially when combined with the strongest cores and 4 million rallies.

  1. T5 troops seem overrated both in attack and defense.

    Many T5 rallies against bases do not deliver the expected results and do not hit more or even hit less then the previous A4 or M4 marches. And also several traps get caught fire by an M4 rally even though their bases are reinforced with T5.

    The key for these apperances is with the troop composition. T5 is stronger than the T4/A4/M4 units; however, it is still a regular troop. The strong unit does not share the +200% or +300% bonus against the weaker units as advanced or merc units have. It means that a single unit T5 rally against an evenly balanced regular troop defending base will suffer an attack penalty compared to an A4 or M4 rally which will not be compensated through the higher stats of T5 in all cases.

    Also, the defending base cannot fully rely on the higher stats of T5 as long as its T4 composition allows merc rallies to cut their way to kill count victories.
