- When the enemy has no walls
- None to few ranged units
- Most effective against enemy layers and layers only
Because your rams will be like a massive barrier, itself inflicting massive damage on the enemy, you can include a few strong ranged units within the wave. The catapults and ballistae will fire freely on the enemy as they will be protected by the rams.
103,000 battering rams
Up against an enemy with no walls and a few million layers left in his city then the ram smack is the wave to use. Whereas the phract smack works when the enemy has no walls or layers but plenty of ranged units, the ram smack works when the enemy has no walls or ranged units but plenty of infantry. Ram smacks are deadly but expensive. They can kill millions of enemy troops if you have a good hero leading the attack but use them wisely!
