"A lot of bad players" lol... Funny that the best way to kill mech is a dwarf unit, sniper. For you surprise it's a ranged unit so your statement is false.
I would love to see this replay, really. Please, share the screenshots for our amusement
It happened 2 weeks ago so the replay is not availible. It is hilarius that you think the counter to mechs is Dwarf snipers. Please tell me you are merging with 13/14/15/16 soon? I will peg you down as an easy mark and destroy you.
Nope, it's not a counter because there's no counters to mech, but it's what kills mechs easier. The closer to a counter on human troops would be horses, but they get melted by snipers easily enough that no one need to bother sending them, and after all the buffs mechs received the damage on charge is laughable. It's down to a choice of 1) you send horses and die faster, doing a little bit more damage to mechs or 2) you send swordsman and die slowly, but doing no damage at all with them. I don't even need to mention that it would be a full attack and the human would take heavy loses, and without archers and catapults it's a 100% guarantee wipe because for your information those troops mentioned before will do no damage to the snipers on wall. Why exactly you want to argue about it? It's obvious that mechs stats are broken now, you literally just need to click on one of your mechs. They die, yes, but the stats are too high for the cost. A full siege like mentioned before WILL cripple ANY race and no sane person will send one of those just to kill your beautiful mechs, just to see that there's more mechs or miners (that don't die) on the next wave, unless this person is going to stop playing or just don't care anymore about cost. You can and will clear human walls much easier using anything you want, unless you're sending horses on gold spearsman, anything else works.
Now please, don't tell me you know how to play after your post about dwarves getting a nerf and you get smashed by a guy using horses and a turtle while you were using blasters expecting to win lol
I will wait to any of you to show a mech wall getting destroyed the way you said, just me a printscreen on message if you want, really, you got all time you want.
From my experience you are correct, I have sieged and have been Sieged high level lich, human & dwarf bases and Deadeyes are the most effective at killing gold mechs, even though they have the ability to block most of snipers attacks same with archers and mages,
snipers are the only ranged dps with 50x crit dmg on top of a second ability that can be researched for a further 50x crit , which makes it super deadly against mechs seeing as they only come in groups of 5 &6 they will get headshotted repeadtly with large amounts of damage, from snipers in (groups of 10) x 3 on the wall + ground while the gold mechs hold the front lines.
A good example ; 2 months ago I sieged a dwarf focused on sniper research with 6 x VIII Dead eyes on the first wave + miners &mechs, while my gold mechs were XI i still managed to lose 1/5 gold mech due to pure headshots, with a difference of 4 levels no other range dps would be able to kill a gold mech.
