Ok I like to play builder a lot. I like to set up a defensives for my team and watch people die trying to get past it, but then I thought to myself. This is wrong. If I focus on playing the game in such a way that my team has to be losing, that my teams base has to be constantly assaulted for any action to happen for me I'm playing the game wrong. Because what is going to happen is if my team can't hold the enemy back no matter how good I make a base they will eventually break through. A trap can't move, it just sits there so if it kills one guy he will just come back and either avoid it or destroy it. In reality a builder is supposed to move forward. He is the guy who ladders the enemy towers(another reason why traps are useless) . He is the guy who entombs himself in front of the enemy flag and burrow there way through. All of these builders builders/building critiques are essentially useless if they focus on traps. I'm not saying we shouldn't make defenses, but we shouldn't waste are time making traps because in the end they won't help your team win. I guess a trap in the middle or next to the enemy base wouldn't be terrible, but if you can have the time and safety to build a trap in the enemy base it probably means your team was winning anyways so the trap is still less effective. Please tell me why traps aren't useless. They are the funnest things to make in this game, but I realized they won't help you win.
