After determining that all new troops traps and Mythics would be completely annihilated in the Game of War when accompanied with older versions, we returned to testing individual battle mechanics of Troops, Mythics and Demigods. Previously we had seen the pattern that Traps stood before Troops and Mythics, that Troops stood before Mythics, and that Mythics the final and last of each tier would stand along side the traps of the following next tier. This has changed.
Demigod Kill Priority
After running tests, we cansay that the Demigod Kill Priority is (in the order that they will die before you touch the next tier :
- All non-demigod old troops, traps, and mythics, and any other new troops, traps, and mythics that go along with them in the hit.
- T1 Demigod Traps
- T1 Demigod Troops & T1 Demigod Mythics
- T2 Demigod Traps
- T2 Demigod Troops & T2 Demigod Mythics
- T3 Demigod Traps
- T3 Demigod Troops & T3 Demigod Mythics
- T4 Demigod Traps
- T4 Demigod Troops & T4 Demigod Mythics
Essentially we are back to the battle mechanics that GOW started with. Traps stand in front of Troops and Mythics. Troops and Mythics are hit at the same time. Basically, Mythics have taken on a similar role as the former siege.
- They hit at the same time as Troops, and they Kill Traps.
- They are easily killed by Troops.
- This will help make more sense out of the game.
Here are Reports showing Trap / Mythic / Troop Kill Succession:
One of the things we wanted to make sure of is that it wasn’t the type of troop trap or mythic being sent at the target which was causing the change of succssion. We took a few other mixed test hits just to confirm and results stayed the same. Traps stood in front. Troops and Mythics stood together.
Type vs Type test results
The next thing we did was to test how effective Mythics, Troops and Traps were against their strength, weakness, and neutral counterparts. Previously we were able to confirm the kill cycle. For easy reference, we’ve included the Demigod Cycle of Death chart below. Troops kill Mythics, Mythics kill Traps, and Traps kill Troops.
Here is a chart containing the same information but just shown in a different format. This format will be used to relate battle mechanics testing results in the remainder of the article.
Battle Mechanics Testing
Two things were tested. First – the initial attack power and loss of each single variable combination. Second – the continual increase of defender losses for each single variable combination. At this stage of game, both are equivalent.
1,000 Defending Demigod Troops, Traps or Mythics were placed on a tile without hero and Attacked by 5,000 Demigod Troops, Traps or Mythics without hero. Attacking Account has decent research. Defending account stats are as close to 0 as possible in order to get the truest outline of inherent strengths and weaknesses before research, gear, or major upgrades are added. Here are the results.
Neutrals vs Neutrals
Overall, what testing told us is that hitting one single type of target with Neutrals, gives like results across the board. Troops hitting Troops killed 6 of the defenders troops. Traps hitting Traps killed 6 of the defenders Traps, and Mythics hitting Mythics killed 5 of the Defender’s Mythics. The result of “5” when averaged out is closesr to 6 but because we are dealing with a small amount of troops only 5 “whole” Mythics could be killed.
Strong hitting what the Type is Strong against
Side by side comparison shows that the most amount of damage done in game of war is from Traps attacking Troops – in testing above 24 Kills. This gives over double the amount of kill power as Mythics Hitting Traps – 10 Kills, and over triple the amount of times as Troops hitting Mythics – 7 Kills.
Weak hitting what it is Weak against
Side by side comparison shows the inverse. The worst “weak type troop/trap/mythic to hit with is Troops. Troops attack Traps provided 1 Kill and will give up a ton more points when put to a much larger scale. The second worst “weak type” to attack with is Traps. Traps hitting Mythics only killed 3. And Mythics hitting Troops only killed 4.

The next post that will be made will be on Traps as Front Line Defense. What attacks them the best and what defends the best.
