  • Knight level when reinforcing

    Hi guys, quick question.
    When reinforcing a team mate, does it matter what level knight you send?
    Some people say it only matters what knight the defending city has on Marshall, other people say each reinforcing army's strength is based on that individual army's knight.
    Any ideas?

    Only the knight set to marshal in the defending city counts. You can safely send a level 1 knight when reinforcing. The defending city must set a knight to marshal and must have 'hide all troops' to off or the reinforcing troops will fight as if they have no knight regardless of what knight was sent with them.

      Are you sure about this? I believe the reinforcing knight's level aids in the defense of the city.

        I've tested it multiple times. The reinforcing knight has absolutely zero effect. Only the Marshal counts.

        I double checked it after seeing 20 million might in troops (10 mil my own and 10 mil from another player) drop like flies. I had forgotten to put my Knight back to marshal. I was hit whilst I was asleep and zeroed. The player who was reinforcing me had sent 2 level 200 knights. His troops died just as easily as mine. On another very similar occasion wen I did have my Knight on marshal the reinforcements which had low level knights did not take any more losses than my own troops. Those two occassions led me to test whether reinforcement knights made any difference. So far I have not seen any indication that they do.

          Furthering the questioning process

          Runey, I am completely with you on this but I want to just follow up a little. So the level knight I send to reinforce does not matter. Should I put my highest level knight on Marshall at my city to boost my troops reinforcing someone else's city? Or does that not matter either?

            Only the knight at the defending city matters. So they need to put there highest knight on marshal.

              So, no help if someone reinforces you with a 212 knight and you have a lvl 1 in Marshall?

                  I cannot disagree with runey because I have not tested, but the impression I was under was that the Marshall boosted the troops that belong to the defending player, and the reinforcing knight boosted the troops of the reinforcing player... each independent of each other. If I am wrong, then this is a programming oversight that requires attention by the developers.

                    I don't think it is an oversight by the developers. More likely it was easier to only use the defending cities Marshal in the calculations. Otherwise they would need to apply individual Knight levels to the relevant troops. So I would say it was a conscious decision of convenience rather than a mistake. Doesn't make it right mind you

                      we have tested self rein with lvl 1 and lvl 10 knight defending when trops hidden lvl 1 attachking with 100 mili and 100 mili rein, the rein with lvl 10 knight survuved more than lvl 1. this may have been due to self rein but did show a difference

                        Good point. Eliminating those calculations would help the game run faster too.

                          So if I see my friend getting farmed, and he has troops hidden but I reinforce him, his knight on marshall doesn't matter? The defender has to un-hide troops for their marshall to help my reinforcements?

                            That is the question of the century. And the one that Kabam will not answer.

                            Does the Reinforcing Knight matter when troops are hidden in the defending city???
