    Thumbs Up Strategies for RB Castles

    Hi everybody,

    I browse a lot on the forum and I didn't find anything like a strategy guide or walkthrough to defeat RB castles. So I decide to post a new thread on the newbies forum. I reckon it's the best place to start with. If not suitable, I'm waiting for you mods to let me know.

    The hints I'm going to give are based on my own experience. Maybe you can all help me to maximize the outcome (cost/gain) on each level. The end result is only taking into accounts the gold aspect. This is because I have most difficulties to make gold. For wood and stone, I constantly farm my surrounding inactive neighbor.

    For each level, I will display defence and attack layout. NOTA: I don't use rubbies so don't look for Iron Ram and its kind.

    I use these acronyms:

    fa = farmer
    pi = pikemen
    ma = macemen
    cr = crossbow
    bo = bowmen

    S = Stone-Throwing
    G = Gate Reinforcement
    T = Tar Pitch Kettle
    I = Insulating Mat

    B = Battering Ram
    L = Ladder
    M = Mantlet

    This end the introduction, then one post per level.

    See you guys on the battlefield.

    Level 5.2:
    Left: X Middle: X Right: 10ma
    Keep: X

    Here the 10 macemen are not always on the right side (sometime on the left). Thus, you have two options: send a spy to get a perfect score or gamble to guess which side is which. I tend to take the odds every time because it's cheaper to train one soldier than sending a spy. This alternative positioning will occur more and more as you target higher level castles.

    Attack:
    Left: 8pi Middle: 12pi Right: X

    Result with spy:
    Left: X Middle: X Right: X
    Result with wrong guess:
    Left: -1pi Middle: X Right: X
