I go back to AoC and play a bit, walls were so useful back then, now only n00bs use them extensively. What do you think has caused them to be so worthless, and how can ES increase their use? Something should be done to give them a boost.

    Wal are not as strong but i use them alot, wheni want to boom, when i want to stop raiding and sometimes i want to wall him in. In AoM you need 2-3 layers of walls to do the job that they used to do in aoc.

    Don't forget that walls are less expensive in AoM. If they had been as strong as in AoK it would have been a problem. Now they are useful but not in an overpowered way. I use them a little now and then, but rarely so much as to wall off an entire base. Instead some extra protection for a tower/fort/settlement could be useful. Usually a wall can at least buy a little time to react quicker to an assault. Or just put one up at an odd place to annoy your enemy. At least with norse there's much room for creativity in the placement of walls.

    When I was a newb to AOM I used to simply charge towers and knock down walls that were in my way.
    Now I use walls and run away from towers unless I know I can destroy it with little or no losses. Walls can make choke points and make you harder to raid or be used to simply buy time.
    Afterall there is a T in RTS.

    Don't judge those who try and fail.
    Judge only those who fail to try.

    Many players use walls... sure, walling in your entire town is rarely a good idea, but walling a chokepoint on Alfheim or Watering Hole is good. I've seen some players (Norse) make a wall around their gold mine.

    Speaking of walls, do you guys upgrade the walls in AOM? When? I find the cost of upgrade quite expensive but useful if I want to boom.

    Is it time to go home yet?

    walls are sometimes use full, heres an example. Your playing greek they boomed and you have rushed they castceasfire and your trying to keep heros in therre tc ( because of ceasefire buildwalls round tc, stables,archer r, temple, fortress, milatray aceademy (you get the picture) so dont just think walls are not useful while you rush...

    i sort of copied hope's odin lightning strategy for lightning mode where he sends his vill right away to your base and makes a house/temple/ walls you in at most important spots with ulf and makes a couple hersir to wall and build more houses then he attacks.....

    what i do, and i think is more effective if i had skills like hope (that would be awesome) is i wall them in, only build 2 longhouses on lightning get heimdall tower upgrade and spam towers everywhere in front of their base then a couple along the sides of my walls and just try to survive his defense until he eventually runs out of gold where my ulfsark walls very early!!! it's a great odin strat i think.
