    Default How Many Barracks Are Enough?

    I am not going to attempt to convince anyone of how many of what to build. All I will present here is the facts. Here is a table showing how long it will take to train a 1k Archers with no tech bonuses with different number of barracks. Further this table also shows by what percentage the training time improves with each successive barracks built. Thus building another barracks when you already own 3 will improve your training time by 33%. As can be seen from the table the more barracks you have the less benefit you receive from building another one. Hope this helps you decide what number of barracks works best for you!

    I realize that this is not the worlds most mind shattering information, and its not really intended to be, just thought it might be a small contribution to an already extensive forum.

    That's good info.

    The main variable is not factored in. Hero attack level. So there are already guys that can make meat in zero seconds. Yep, 50k warriors, click, and there they are. Once heroes with excalibur are reaching 700-800 attack maybe the same is for archers, so you will only need one barracks and lots of cottages.

    This is good info and I agree however your math is flawed, a better presentation would show troops per hour. Based on the ability of 1 barrack to produce 60 archers an hour, I think this is a more fair presentation.. (sorry I copied some stuff).

    # Barracks__Time[Hours] [%] ... archers per hour
    1__72:13:20__--.--% 60 (60 x1)
    2__36:06:40_100.00% 120 (60 x2)
    3__24:04:27__50.00% 180 (60 x3)
    4__18:03:20__33.33% 240 (60 x4)

    The time also depends on how high of attack your hero has. The higher the better. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, switch your Mayor to your highest attack hero and you'll find out a big difference.
