Funneling with Decorations (Revised)

Decorations are a useless way to waste Gold and Elixir – NOT. They do not have any use like a building but they do prevent attackers to deploy troops to a certain spot and also make Troops go around them. You can use them to make your enemies troops (best are Archers) group together and then take them out by splash damage buildings like your Wizard Towers or Mortars. I have re-worked this post with new images and to show you how this works and afterwards you will hopefully go to the shop and get yourself some nice decorations for your base.

How decoration funneling works and why decorations are useful

Even if decorations have no real use they are buildings so Troops are forced to walk across their outline instead of just walking directly through it. In general (we take some Archers but this also works for Barbarians and other Troops) you will deploy them widely to protect them a little bit from Mortars and splash damage:

Spreading your Troop Deployment so splash damage will not take out a huge part of your Troops

You should now surround your base outside ring with Decorations (or like posted here with Obstacles) – you can see this here:

Are these Decorations really useless? We will see

Now the attacker has no choice other than deploying the Troops behind the Decorations. Most attackers aren’t even aware of what will happen next because they just don’t know or they just have their mind on your resources:

Troops that get deployed behind Decorations can’t directly walk through them

The Archers in this case will walk between the Decorations to get to their desired target but even if they get deployed in a row they only have a few path they can use so they will group together no matter what. After they came through the Decorations they are now handy grouped together and your Mortar is just waiting for them:

The Archers are grouped and the Mortar can now kill them easily

You see you can save yourself a lot of Mortar projectiles and the Archers just drop like flies.

Archers have been killed fast

It was hard to find a base to take the screenshots from but I think you got the idea, right? To make it perfect you will need to have the Decorations directly next to each other:

Perfect Funneling of Archers when Decorations stand directly next to each other

Because the Archers then will group together even closer and have almost no chance of surviving. Instead of having destroyed all the outside buildings with a few Archers the attacker hasn’t destroyed that much but has lost most of his Troops.

End of the Archer

Sure, you can’t build that kind of ring through your whole base but if you close some sides you will definitely see an impact and if you take the cheap Decorations you will not have to invest that much. I hope you now understand that Decorations aren’t useless at all and also in the turnaround have an eye on Decorations – someone might just funnel your Troops :) simple smile
