I think it`s like hop/tox with hops in the front because they`ll be backed up by archer fire. I think.

a meat shield will protect the units that are doing the task from attack, for instance tons of priests to kill a titan, you might put a bunch of elephants infront of them, the titan wud have to smash through them to get to the priests, and with the amount of hp and armour they have it would take awhile.

Foreign tourist meat is good.

Greek myth units like the minotaur and cyclops are even better meat sheilds. To me, that was what the original purpose of MU. Don't try a zeus myth and tox thou, just to ineffecient, I tried.

well dealer, didn't you find it a bit confusing that everybodys is talking about keeping you tox in the back and condoms in front?
(and that can really be understood in a number of ways, but dont even go there )

Meat Shield = A condom for your Archers - rofl

The direction this forum sometimes takes never ceases to entertain me - lol

lol

The first time I read "meat shield" didn't knew what was it.

So I imagined...
What about killing my cows,
make some hamburgers,
threw them to my enemy
and while he is distracted eating... cut his head off!

Anyway just a thought...
