The scout bomb is an effective way to weaken a high level opponent’s defenses.  Scout bombs can destroy all the traps, and devestate the archers defending a city.

So how do you defend against the scout bomb?

There are a few strategies for defending against the scout bomb.

1. Send your army to a nearby flat to avoid being attacked by the scout bomb.  Unfortunately the scout bomb is usually followed by additional waves of armies so sending your troops away might not be a good idea. You could receive further attacks while your army is gone.  Not to mention the scouts will weaken or destroy your defenses.

2. Close your gates. If you’re gates aren’t open your archers won’t fight. The scout bomb will hit the defenses on your wall. They could still weaken your defenses though so this might not be the best strategy.

3. Have a lot of scouts to defend against the scout bomb.

4. Have a lot of fodder (warriors) to defend against the scout bomb.

5. Have stronger troops like swordsman to defend against the scouts. Since swordsman have a high defense you need less total swordsman than scouts to defend against the scout bomb.

6. Get your allies to send your some troops quickly. Of course scouts are very fast but hopefully your allies can send you some army to help you defend before your opponents regular army arrives.

The big problem with the scout bomb is that scouts are faster to train than swordsmen or archers. If you get attacked by large numbers of scouts and defend yourself you may still face additional scout bombs before you can rebuild your defenses.

Again the fact is that the person who can make resources the fastest is usually the person who can build an army the fastest. It’s very hard to keep up with an opponent than can make more troops than you on a daily basis.

Do you have any more strategies for defending against Scout Bombs?

Your embassy can be important. You not only need an embassy to join an alliance but it can also help you defend your city.

Based on the level of your embassy you can support armies from your allies.  A level 3 embassy will allow you to host 3 of your allies armies to help defend your city. Your allies armies only help defend your city. You cannot control them.

When you host your allies armies you need to feed them. Make sure you have lots of food. However food is the cheapest resource in the game. If you follow my advanced strategies you should have a ton of food and not need very many farms.

Archer Towers are the only defensive item that can be reused. If they are not destroyed in battle you can use them over and over. I only build traps/abatis/logs/trebs for the newbie quest, then demolish them and get my resources back simple smile The best defensive unit in Evony is the Archer Tower Then I can fill their spaces with more archer towers.

I actually laugh when I see someone with 2000 abatis because an abatis is only useful at stopping calvary and cataphracts while 2000 archer towers would be able to shoot ANYTHING attacking their city.
