"Wall: The walls guarding the land approaches to Constantinople withstood intermittent assault over a period of a thousand years."

"Gate: The portcullis, a common type of gate, was a heavy metal grid raised by a winch. The narrow passage beyond kept breaching troops vulnerable to attack."


  • Build walls to block enemy access to your castle. Walls are hard to knock down without siege weapons, so set up towers to fortify and defend them.
  • Gates allow roads to pass through walls keeping trade routes connected. When a road is on either side of a wall piece, it can be converted into a gate. Increase your wealth by building roads while protecting the castle with gates.
  • Walls protect your castle from rushes with foot soldiers and mounted units. They are built and upgraded instantly, but a free worker is needed. They can manned by troops.
  • High health.
  • Protects inside of castle.
  • Vulnerable to siege weapons

Offensive Strategy

Defensive Strategy

  • Place walls around your castle, specifically near important buildings.
  • Have gates at higher level than the rest of the walls, as they are extra vulnerable to rams.
