Have you heard of the scout bomb yet?
I’m a big fan of scouts. I think they are one of the most underrated troops in all of Evony.
The main reason why I love the scout is that they are the fastest troop in the game. The scout is also one of the cheaper units to make in the game. These two reasons combined make the scouts very powerful.
So what is the scout bomb?
The scout bomb is when you send LARGE quantities of scouts to attack your enemy NOT scout him. True scout bombs are typically 100,000 to 400,000 scouts. (of course that would mean 4 waves of scouts)
The idea is that the scout is the fastest troop in the game. This means your attack lands faster and gives your opponent less time to react. Since the scout is the fastest troop in the game they also have an advantage when attacking archers. The archers get less free attacks on the scouts. The scouts quickly close the distance and get close enough to attack the archers with their swords/knives. Large numbers of scouts can actually devestate archer armies.
For this reason many high level players like to use the scout bomb on their opponents. They time their attacks so that the scout bomb hits and then shortly after an army of traditional troops (archers, warriors, calvary, etc.) hits. The scout bomb weakens the archer defenses and uses up the one time defenses like traps. Now the regularly army hits and is able to do much more damage and take less casualties.
That’s the scout bomb!
