    It's stuff like this that keeps me interested in the game. I think it's great when people try out innovative things to keep their interest in the game alive and fresh. Having fun here is what it's all about. Awesome.

    Don't worry, Marmot; they bashed Dadaism as well. Absurdists for the win.

    The best, guide I've seen yet.

    That is a disappointing amount of defense in a WW, if I am not wrong.

    Yes, but that was pointed out - 8 years ago. The amazing thing is, the ram hammer had nothing but a hero as an escort and did serious damage to the wall, and an earth wall at that.

    You're as bad as Erbal.

    Rams work just as well with or without troops accompanying it. If there was a hammer with the rams, it would have boosted the hammer's offensive capabilities. That's all that would happen, so this is a legit and good way to use rams.

    That is patently false. See the below kirilloid sims as proof.

    20k Rams with no hammer:

    Same 20k Rams with a hammer:
    http://travian.kirilloid.ru/log2.php...oDceAP_KxPNCoA

    I'm sorry but this is an absolutely abysmal way to use rams. Literally the least efficient way to use rams, aside from not using them at all. Yeah, it can do the job when there is horrible defense like in the above report, but with any respectable defense, no, not going to cut it.

    It seems like I was wrong ... Thanks for the correction.

    Well, we were MORONS, after all. And we were more interested in the giant 'M' we were making than hammers, to be perfectly honest. We also chose the Wonder, if I remember correctly, only because the leader irritated us or made us laugh or some such.
    We had already won the server when we completed our M. World Wonders were nothing other than a distraction.

    Oh yes, I'm aware, and I am not trying to take anything away from that. I just want to be clear that this is truly an "unorthodox" rammer, and that there are more effective uses for rams.
