Historical DescriptionEdit

"Motorcycles were used for scouting and lightning raids into enemy territory. They were much faster than vehicles and could easily outrun them if needed. Some of the first motorcycles had sidecars that would allow an extra passenger to be transported. While useful in urban settings, motorcycles were less mobile off-road, unable to cross trenches and other defenses that tanks could easily navigate."

Attacking Strategies Edit

  • If a base has full farms, caravans (gold dropped on roads) or oil wells, that are not well defended or on the outer edges of the base use Motorcycle Riders against them so you can reap all of its resources.
  • If resource storage buildings such as the mill, market or refinery has a lot of loot, you can use a rally to target desired building.
  • They are difficult to include if looking for a 5 star attack as they will rush ahead of your main army triggering traps and defenders.

Defensive Strategy Edit

  • Motorcycle Raiders have little to no defensive value.
