    Hey , so recently I discovered this new tactic/strategy where you mount a dinghy on a catapult
    How it works:
    Building
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    as you can see , to get a quick cata+dinghy combo you need a boatshop & and a builder shop next to eachother , a dinghy costs 100 wood & 25 coins
    Benefits:
    -This tactic allows to throw builders to the enemy without the fear of hight and fall damage , after the builder on the mounted boat gets thrown ,
    the dinghy soaks all the damage and breaks , leaving the builder untouched.
    -Not only that but 2 players can ride a dinghy , so you can throw 2 players at a time (a builder and a knight for protection for ex)
    -Has storage , like alot
    -Sometimes , the boat survives the throw and could be retrieved and reused.
    Cons:
    extemely time and resource consuming.
    since dinghies cost 25 coins , you can't use them for every cata shot .
    it is also hard for other players to understand what the crap you are doing with a boatshops and dinghies in a land map

    Lemme know what you think

    This feature is an integral part of the KAG expierence removing this would severely damage the game and the devs would never do such a thing. Especially the massive amount of water that appears when a dinghy is launched.

    If I can say something, I appreciate your doings but you don't found nothing new just some old fun stuff with dinghy. But back to the topic if we talk about a (public mostly) ctf and this tactic let's rethink it:
    - you need two vehicle shops that will use 100 gold and 500 wood right, wood is not problem but your team will resist when you will "waste" 50 or 100 gold on shop's because tunnels are better thing
    - you need build big tower and maintain it in good shape and it is time-consuming
    - a cata cost is 85 coins, like you said a dinghy is 25 and 100 wood it easy stuff but someone must use cata to shoot you right?
    - you said you can shoot two people in one dinghy sounds great but it will work?
    - and last thing it's not better use chickens?
    -ah nearly forgot dinghy is heavy and with two persons on board it will be heavier
    Before you do something, rethink it few times always at first time it's look perfect. And it's nice to see that you are trying new things, but this one is just fun even if you land on ground safe don't think enemy team will ignore you.

    Also you can storage a insane amount of items in the little boat, like 20 mines or 2 kegs. you can use the dingy for camouflage for such items.

    I absolutely agree with Ferrezinhre's post.
    But it may be a fun thing to do in pubs.

    I didn't say that I found something new , I said discovered it , so it could be used before but I never heard or tried it .
    123-Yes , the biggest problem with this tactic is that it uses a lot of resources and is time consuming to build , you are correct.
    4-You can shoot 2 people in one dinghy , it will work.
    5-For me I think the dinghy is better , chickens take time to hatch & does not fully negate fall damage , huge heights still hurt , also if landing near a knight will render you slashed and killed.
    The dinghy however, quickly made, negates all fall damage, if landing on a knight the boat will block him & don't forget that a guard can be mounted with the builder.
    6-do you mean there is a difference between 1 & 2 guys on the dinghy? I tried it and I land in the same spot I landed alone (might need to recheck)

    100% a feature and honestly glad it's getting some renewed attention. The spray of water is canon.

    It's expensive, looks ridiculous, and allows huge swings in a losing fight if you pull it off; what's not to love?
