So I wanted to crunch some numbers for the hell of it~
fight lasted about 30 seconds
(in the 2nd attack he did 600k dmg and gazul being second with 271k due to a half finished scourge)
and this is the more interesting stuff~ the breakdown of what I had to pay for this attack, keep in mind i dealt almost no walldamage plus he was poor~ I just did it to farm some honor.
So thats 20:32h of hospital time and 10h of retraining and 17k gold spent. Like I couldn't even keep attacking people if i wanted to using this strategy because im running out of bronze to field the 26k power requirement from them alone lol.
Also it's not exactly cheap either to do this~ AND KEEP IN MIND IM 2-3 LEVELS ABOVE HIS UNITS it's castle level 36 vs 29 thats about 2 months progress difference and all I could do with bronze is take out half his garrison but thats also mostly because i had spearman vs his horses~ bunch of bronze mechs would have crumbled even faster (oh yeah since you guys are always so eager to jump on this "no loss mech" garbage, 1 set of lvl 11 bronze mechs costs 3.740 gold and you can field 11 with 6 heroes which turns into 41.140g for 1 attack if you get wiped out... ya please go ahead and tell me how this is cheap if you do that multiple times a day TO ATTACK PEOPLE THAT ARE MONTHS
BEHIND YOU IN PROGRESS).
If someone attacked me he couldn't even field the power requirement of 40k without elena and golds he has to recall and even then im going to crush him before he could even take out more than 1 or 2 sets of things IF AT ALL, because you know keep in mind that 1 stack of my swordsman has a combined healthpool of 924k plus 25%+ dmg reduction and +50% dmg reduction from projectiles).
So ya... just giving some later game perspective on Jacques+bronze vs gold~, takes quite a few attacks to clear out something and its not free either AND MOST OF ALL IT DOES BARELY HELP IF YOU FIGHT SOMEONE YOUR LEVEL OR ABOVE YOUR LEVEL WHICH NONE OF YOU PEOPLE EVERY COMPLAIN ABOUT. It's always people who are behind screaming bloody murder that Jacques+trash took out some gold defense of some low level guy... well guess what, noone gives a damn and the endgame gold wall barely has any counterplay and is still ridiculously time consuming and annoying to take down.
