Advanced Troops have been released in Mobile Strike, a brand new set of troops, similar to Advanced Traps. Advanced troops are specialized against a single troop type, but weak against all other troops.

Like regular troops, the advanced version comes in four different tiers of increasing strength. Each advanced troop requires the equivalent normal troop to be unlocked first, before you can research the advanced version. Advanced troops can be found in the new advanced combat research tree in your Research Facility.

Advanced Troops

The list below shows all of the new troops and their strengths and weaknesses:-

Advanced Troops Vs Regular Troops

For all tiers advanced troops are stronger than the regular version when attacking a balanced army. Even taking into account their increased weakness to their own troop type, overall the extra damage means they will outperform regular troops. Most players you attack will have a balanced army.

The strong vs. and weak vs. stats only effect attack and attack debuff.  Defense and health are not effected by troop type.

What this means in practice is the following applies:-

  • Very strong vs  = Large attack boost against specific troop type.
  • Strong vs = Medium attack boost against specific troop type.
  • No strength/weakness = no attack boost or attack debuff.
  • Weak vs = Small attack debuff against specific troop type.

The strong vs. attack boost is higher than the weak vs. attack debuff. The increase in attack between strong vs. and very strong vs. is also greater than difference between weak vs. attack debuff and no strength/weakness.

What this means in practice is if you face a balanced army (which most defenders have) the increase you get in attack boost with advanced troops is higher than the defense debuff your troops will suffer from the defender.

The only time you will be worse off with advanced troops is where you attack a player with a pure army made up of either of the two troop types that your advanced troops are weak against. This is very unlikely because few players build a single troop army. Hopefully you will also have scouted the player first and can then send the correct advanced troop type which will give you an even greater advantage.

Note: Whilst advanced troops are better than regular troops, remember that until you have maxed out advanced troop attack, defense and health research, your regular troops will probably be stronger.

Summary

Advanced troops are a nice addition to Mobile Strike for the top players that want to squeeze every last attack boost out of their troops. They are however very expensive to unlock and you can still complete at the top level with regular troops.
