this is plain stupid guys. without jacques how do you break a castle defense full of gold? think about it if there's no jacques then we all just hole up in our castle and literally no one can touch us. i personally like jacques because it breaks the stalemate made by full gold garrison. and now since they buffed healing time of wall troops you shouldn't even complain lol. on my server there's a huge fucking whale that have every heroes and 3 tier above in our middle average spender castle level and guess what? he can't break our garrison even with all his heroes (jacques and rose included) cause the siege battle only last less than 15s even with his tanky af bane and gafgar... so please stop complaining in forums and get good
A golden garrison can line up to 18 golden squads. Which are damn expensive and would have insane healing time once destroyed. You are not supposed to just break it. I mean an average gold capped army has 5-6 maybe 7 golden squads. If you engage 18 golden squads it pretty damn should destroy you.
Before the jacques madness it took alot ppl like 5-6 ppl with max gold lineups maybe even with borrowed golden catapults to break one full garrison stack. And this was good. Spending dozen thousends of rare mats, months of rss, weeks of building time should make your garrison hard to break.
The whale you are talking about is doing it simply wrong. No matter how good a garrison now is, you attack it with jacques and bronze you kill for sure at least 2-3 golden squads, you heal and repeat. Do it with 5 ppl and after 3-4 weaves of attacks the garrison will be dead, without any losses except for bronze on your side.
Take away jacques and that bronze army wont kill any golden units or maybe 1-3 units (not squads) which wouldnt be worth the effort, so you would have to use silver and gold (like it was before the jacques madness) and there you begin to think is it worth it? Do you organise a huge raid with a whole house, who strikes first to engage the first strongest wave, who builds siege weapons? Now you dont care, there are no strategic thoughts left in the game.
