Author Topic: Cool Hero Tip: Smoking Brick with Warriors and Battle Orders | A tutorial and PVP HITS  (Read 73 times)

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

Ok, I made and posted a video earlier about a Tutorial and explanation on how to successfully smoke Sargent Brick in with Warriors and Battle Orders.  As it was originally a Dr T video I posted it in the Events section.  
 
 The oak made and posted an amazing write-up summary of what I discussed in the video.  (https://forum.supercell.com/showthre...1#post10207171
 https://forum.supercell.com/showthre...1#post10208093)
 
 That inspired me to condense a series of attack and post both tutorial videos here under a new title together with theoak's wonderful explanation.
 
 So lets start with the VIDEOS (click image for video)

 Lets follow with the theOak's explanation.  Please leave kudos to theOak's original post https://forum.supercell.com/showthread.php/1502117-WarriorMania-Battle-Orders-Dr-T-Volcano-%F0%9F%8C%8B-Island-Maxed-HQ22-May-14-2017?p=10207171&viewfull=1#post10207171" target="_blank">here

Great video!
 
 Warriors and BO tactics are essentially:
 
 1. Flare to an object behind the HQ.
 
 With that being said it helps that you smoke the object followed by smoking the HQ (as pointed out in the video). Just before the object's smoke clears move the warriors to the HQ. Brick typically stays close to the HQ still and BO covers most if not all the warriors still. If the object is a space behind the HQ that helps as it brings Brick closer to the HQ and protects her better.
 
 Don't forget to keep enough GBE for BO and shocks/critters.
 
 This can work for objects to the side of the HQ; however, Brick has a tendency to be a little farther away and you will not get as good coverage for BO.
 
 
 2. Flare to the ground right behind the HQ.
 
 It REALLY helps however to have defenses/buildings close to the HQ for the Warriors to wrap around. This will mean a little more extra GBE as you will as prior, smoke the objects that the warriors may gather around, followed by a final smoke to the HQ so the HQ gets smoked last.
 
 Flaring to the ground has the advantage that Brick stays close to the HQ.
 
 As prior, when the smoke around the object(s) gets close to expiring, flare the hammers to the HQ.
 
 Don't forget to keep enough GBE for BO and shocks/critters.
 
 
 It really really really helps if you can get a straight shot to the HQ. If you have to navigate Brick around corners, things can get tricky as she has a tendency to wander and not have predictable pathing. Flaring to the ground versus an object can help keep Brick more predictable.
 
 Great video!

Oh ... one other thing Sol mentions in the video that I think is key too:
 
 Don't Panic!
 
 You may lose a few warriors along the way, or even behind the HQ when they gather around the objects or move to the HQ for the final attack.
 
 (Watch the video for examples of this.)
 
 Fingers crossed, you should be still okay.
 
 With the extra damage BO brings along with the extra attacks (11 vs 8 in 8 seconds or 12 vs 8 in 8 seconds) you "should" be okay with losing a few.
 
 I find if the HQ has a health in around 300K - maybe even 350K (if I am fairly boosted) ... BOW (Battle Order and Warriors) attacks I can make work fairly reliably (with my statue line up). Higher than that though I find HZ or something else yielding better results. If the base is close I may still try to BOW it if it has a lot of health as I should have GBE left for more shocks/critters to buy me more attack time. Way in the back though is hard because you will use all your GBE on smoke to get everybody to the party ... and then you have no GBE left for the fireworks at the end.

 So lets discuss this topic!  Again, thanks to theoak for the fantastic writeup.

Sol deserves all the props here
 
 I am a firm believer that a picture is worth a thousand words.  Seriously, watch the videos.  Good stuff there.
 
 BOWing (Battle Orders + Warriors) can be crazy fun and addictive This past Warrior-Mania has been a lot of fun.  With that being said ... be prepared to blow through a TON of gold to get a handle of it.
 
 Edit:
 
 I find too it helps if you have a beached object (defense/building) in front of the HQ.  Deploy Brick followed by the hammers.  Then target the object.  Brick will stop about a smoke away from the object.  The warriors will as expected wrap around the object.  
 
 You will need to master the double smoke here as the first smoke will be below the object, but covering half of it, the second smoke will be above the object, and covering the top half.  The bottom smoke if you got it right will be just enough to cover Brick.
 
 Now the rat race begins as you flare and then smoke the path to your flare.  With typical warriors you can almost smoke the whole path in advance to the HQ as they run fast enough.  Brick is not as fast.  So if you can delay the smokes on the way to the HQ as much as you can, the smoke will hopefully last just long enough for Brick to take advantage of the smoke too.
 
 Having Brick maxed definitely helps.  This way she can take a good hit or two in case she is not fast enough to move all the way covered in smoke.
 
 Remember to activate BO while she is smoked.  If she gets KO'ed after the smoke clears its okay as BO will still last its duration.
 
 Edit 2:
 
 Those side attacks on the shield bases are waaaay cool.  Your GBE was crazy boosted.  Fun stuff

Very cool. Having olayed clash for so long i have enjoyed boom off and on. Right now ive been wondering about heroes and what to do. This has been working very well.
 Edit: Still having trouble putting smoke down. however I am losing very few warriors just rushing to the hq under battle orders and shocking the surrounding defenses.

Great stuff Sol and Oak. When you get it up try IWW (as oak would say). I've been having some good success with it. Especially on bases with multiple ice and and an SG.

Thanks for the tutorials....

So is IWW pronounced "ew" or "ewww"
 
 IWW has potential ... I would be interested in your feedback.  I would think single shots would still get the warriors?
 
 With BOW'ing ... the warriors hit faster.  With each hit brings healing.  Hence, the warriors are not only hitting faster, but also healing faster.
 
 I have been pondering what ability to upgrade next though.  I might have to try IWW'ing a bit ... hmmm ....
 
 Edit:
 
 I will add I have been boosting my GBE 41 and GBE 17.  I usually BOW pretty good with that.

Interesting, I tried it but the losses where higher with IW.  Maybe because IW is lvl 1???

 You are welcome.

I am thinking my next ability is going to be Universal Remote.  Not sure though.  Currently I am sitting at 4 Hero Tokens though.  It will be a while before I work on a new ability I think.
 
 I am hoping somehow that this next Crab will give tickets/tokens as rewards.  Fingers crossed.
 
 (I finally got BO to Level 5!!!)

I decided that my second ability will be critter swarm.  Iron will just doesn't to it for me.  Rather it doesn't justify the use of tokens.
 
 I like the idea about the tokens or tickets but somehow I doubt it.
 
 PS I have BO maxed on my Maxed account and at lvl 4 on my low level account.  My low level account currently has 54 tokens and nothign to use them on (that I like)
