Hi guys!

English is not my first language, so can someone explain what the **** does the Barbed Wire description mean, please? The game explains it "Ground Attackers take 25% of damage dealt as damage when damaging Walls and Bastions".

To me that is gibberish... Damage dealt as damage when damaging? So, what is happening? 25% damage of what? :unsure:

Here's how I interpret it: say you shoot a wall and do 100 damage to it; with this directive active you do 25 damage to yourself and 100 damage to the wall. You might do 75 damage to the wall instead of 100, I'm not certain.

Thanks!

So, a weak ground troop against a high ranking wall might kill himself in the process, even if no one is shooting at him.
I think that the game makes attacking too hard already, even without all these defense add-ons. But that's just me... :rolleyes:

Think of it as a ricochet ...

I agree attacking is too hard as is. But to me it’s the counterintelligence that’s the worse , makes blitz and sabots useless , it’s too OP

I used to think that too but in reality I'm only engaging Drone age bases approx 10% of the time - don't know how often you come across these - and even then not all of them have the drone building - so in the end its not that big a deal, at least for me.
Forces me to think a little differently every now and then, which is a good thing. :)

Also directives are only active roughly half of the battle that DC is around, so the word "useless" doesn't really fit here.
