Hi there! This is a thread to learn things about the game that arent very well known. For instance:

Trolls re-gain hp with every rock that hits the opponent. The more damage the more regen. (This works on buildings but to a lesser effect)

4 Trolls if they are spread out and lucky can take down Nidhogg!

8 Automatons can destroy a town center! (One or two rebuild the others while they destroy the town center - this takes alot of micro and time but is possible.)

This one is really obvious if you think about it, but... Fishing Ships can be garrisoned in Docks and now the 95 pierce armor 1600 hp building will fire arrows just as powerful as TC arrows.

Also, please post your own obscure and amazing and new discoveries here too!

Not much of a discovery but 4 Guardian Anubites are better heroes than priests. Jump attack means easy micro and they surround the MU, stopping it's advancement

Zeus hoplites can never deal more damage against other units as Hades or Poseidon hoplites. Because zeus cannot worship Ares. Ares offers Phobos' sperar of panic improvement increasing their attack against other units by 10% (i think its 10%).
Of course Zeus's hoplites are better all round for their other improvement options.
Is that right? (sorry if i got that wrong - i dont like giving wrong information).

Cool! Didnt ever think about the Guardian Anubite being better than priests - but your right! Hmm... no rebuilding autos in enemy LOS? I destroyed a town center and my guys were in the LOS the whole time. Keep posting guys!

Not sure how well known this fact is but I'll post anyway. The first meteor in the meteor god power gets a direct hit on what ever you clicked on.

you can message while your playing during a game by typeing the slash key. then you type their screen name. then you type the message you want to send them. so if i wanted to send a message to silverosirisAOM then it would look like this..... /silverosirisAOM hey this is farmerbrown your on like every thread!!!
so you can see that it has to be a slash first then the screen name then the space and message and it wil automatically send a message to that person. i thought i should say that because that was not well known. it is alittle hidden secret eso put in .

all this stuff is basically already known. Also, about the guardian anubites...they are a lot more expensive so....nepthys priests still are much better.

If you don't want to go Nepthyses or you have to fight High Pierce MUs (Collosus or Behemoths) then they own! 100 Food and 15 Favor isn't much, especially as GOLD is more valuable (and priests cost gold).

But also remember that anubites take more pop, and are beaten by most other myth units. If anything, sphinxes is better. And wadjets.

When a mountain giant smacks a building, it makes a crunchy sound. When a mountain giant smacks a unit, it makes a squishy sound. When a mountain giant smacks a dryad, it makes the crunchy sound again.

Minotaurs used to use their special against villigers at one point in vanilla. Now they can't, and I am pissed.

Ulfsarks attack faster than one attack a second, but still do an average of 9 hack damage per second as shown on in game UI.

Petasuchos has 100% accuracy, fire about every 3 seconds, and in game UI shows the damage done every attack, not an average of damage per second.

20 ulfsarks against one TC have only 4 or 5 ulfsarks lost. 14 ulfsarks against a TC have almost all ulfsarks lost while they still win.

Building arrow fire with multiple arrows works strangly. Such as, a tc fires 2 arrows. Each arrow does the set amount of damage to the targeted unit when it hits. When a unit is close by, they take a small amount of "splash" damage, even though an arrow never strikes them. More studying is needed for me to give more accurate reports. May mean spread formation is more useful than previously thought.

That sound is so cool and the reason I chose Hades over Zeus when I played Greek ages ago

Etendorf re: attack speed vs average damage.
Their seems to be a real and effective issue here.

[Q]Ulfsarks attack faster than one attack a second, but still do an average of 9 hack damage per second as shown on in game UI.[/QE]

You notice how the ulfsark does attack faster then say the RC or the hoplite. Of course - there is no arguing with damage per second. BUT in certain situtaions - like massing up and ganging a certain creature - that creature will fall faster to the ulfsark they say the RC while both having equal hack attack. Besides the fact that the attack surface area is smaller---therefor more hackers can hack, but the issue over how many hacks over a second seems to come into play.

[Q]20 ulfsarks against one TC have only 4 or 5 ulfsarks lost. 14 ulfsarks against a TC have almost all ulfsarks lost while they still win.[/QE]

That TC fact you posted is interesting, it shows how important outnumbering(or being a Thor ulfsark spaz) is and it also exposes the hacks per second thing that seems to compliment ulfsarks. I would be curious if anyone knew the exact numbers - likeyou know dude, when you say for example that you confirmed that ulfs attack faster then said damage averaged over a second.dude...

True true. Don't Anubites cost 2 population? That's the same as a priest, and 4 anubites are better than 4 priests.

Medusa does a small amount of crush damage, as do lampades.

In an even battle between an Eggy titan and another titan, the eggy almost always wins. Its is true, ive tested it over and over, its very strange. I think it has like an extra .03 range or something so it attacks first.


I told you I'd be back.

Were you controlling the eggy titan? Also, its a possibility that it does have longer range with long wings and therefore, also long talons. That could actually make an eggy titan OP! I never thought of one titan being more powerful or having different strengths than the other ones.

Its a Well know fact that the Norse Titan is the Most Powerfull due to its Faster Attack Animation.

Not the Eggy Titan.
