How come some players can engage my units from far away and from behind an obstacle, while I can not? I tried playing with Psilos/Archers and was able to retaliate back. I wonder why? I only played tier 5 battles.

Also, how come some Psilos have more range than mine? Or archers for that matter, a saw player shooting me across the river and he was not even close to water - huge range. I am lost, please help.

Hi bro.  Archers can go over stuff where slingers cannot. The type of unit and Consumables can make significant difference..... I even find archers that can out range my slingers sometimes!:amazed:

 

ie. Archamedes  Council VII adds +8 to missile range or Flaming arrows -28 range. Also  Psilos archers, like Sythians have a skill called "Strain" that adds a shed load of range. If you find you can't engage someone behind a building it will often be down to not having a line of sight on them... and them having a good LOS on you. This happens often when the team are not scouting for you properly or perhaps even you may have Cynane hunting you... there's a lot to work with :D

 

Buddy up for a battle sometime and I'll walk you through it maybe ;) ... see you on the battlefield

You gotta love this game in closed Beta :confused: .. with luck we'll be on at the same time and do it from global chat or something. Either that or pop into our clan page and we can set up a meet. ... I'll see if I can find you ;) 

 

 

edit: just been in global and it isn't working *sigh*

Global chat isn't working for you now? Is it giving you an error message that it's unavailable?
