The plague of serpent damage vs. these villagers needs to be boosted dramatically. I envoked it around 1 villager and they all couldn't even take him lower than half health before he killed them all! I think they took 1 hp away every time they attacked. They should do significantly more damage than this.. just my 2 cents. (btw, he wasn't a hero)

I don't agree, as serpent gp isn't supposed to be offenisve like that. If it did anymore damage, you could block of gold mines and like things which would cause the gp to be too powerful. Serpent snakes is a defensive gp instead, and should be used as so. It is already annoying enough infront of a dock.

Serpents have negative multiplier against villagers, they are good against military though (not heros)

get two anubites and cast serpents as you raid with them. ive killed around 7 villies really easily like this. the serpents stop them from moving and the anubites kill them easily

Never use serpants on villagers.

They have a bonus against all animals (incl. snakes) so it's just a waiste of God power.

Always use it against military (for example to protect your 2nd gold mine from raiding)


TORDENSKIOLD(1690-1720)

During the Great Nordic War (1700-1720), he was commander of the danish navy, which defeaded the swedish army at Kristiania (modern Oslo). After the war, he was killed in a duel on Nov. 12, 1720 just outside Hamburg, Germany, during a travel to England.

serpents have a x0,1 multiplier vs. heroes and villagers... so dont use them on villies...

i disaggree. If i cast plague of serpents on some vils they have to stop gathering for quite a while to kill them off. It has the effect of a good raid and if used erly can be hard to beat. You could also use it against what you think will be thier second gold mine. When you go to a new gold mine you are already short on gold so having to take longer to kill the serpents will realy hurt you.

pos will not disrupt anyones econ. Like mentioned, pos does like 1 damage to vills. And vills are like heros vs those things. Best used at a foreward base or defensively.

You could also put the serpents in front of the enemy barracks to keep his military busy while you demolish houses and kill villies.

An assimilating strat is the best strat

the best way to do it VS villagers is to find a group of villies, bring over like 3 or 4 archers, have the serpents keep the villies busy while the archers pick em off, otherwise the mob of super AOM strong villagers will kill off the archers with ease.

Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Preparation can only take you so far... After that you gotta take a few leaps of faith.

or you could let your archers shoot, and when the villies start approaching you (and arent gathering so already owned).. you run away until they go back, then you attack them again...
