whats better....
A.) Having a higher sentry by buying LOTS of sentries like 20000 and arm with like 3 k guard dogs...
B.) have like 3 k sentry and 3 k dogs .?
Basically is it better to make sure all you sentry are armed or not really worry about arming them and go for higher number.. (this is assuming sentries are = or < than you Total fighting force)

I find dogs to be pointless because they dont do much except waste money. you only get teh strength of 14 more sentries added to your strength before it is multiplied and you can train 24 actual sentries for the 100k it takes to buy a dog. If you cant get the men then i guess dogs are worth it. I havnet ever seen a relationship between having dogs dogs and how often you stop recons and sabs with someone that has similar or the same sentry and no dogs.

people with 3000 dogs+3000 sentries will have a better sentry rating than someone with 20000 sentries. put it that way

Obviously A is better than B, because dogs are equal

More sentries=more casualty you will suffer defending attacks. I would arm each sentry with dog if possible.

?????
last age i had 23000 setries and 1.5k dogs for something like 65 mill sentry.
i got some sell offs before the end, had 6k dogs and like 250 mill sentry.
much better ratio, plus less guys dead per attack.

i didnt know that arming a sentry or spy had anything to do with casualties....i havent seen anything so far.... i got the same casualty rate last age...and at the beigning when i got to 2k sentry and spy....i trained the people evenly but had more weapons in sentry and i lost them at the same rate

My point is that if you were able to invest the money (and had enough people) you would have ended up with more then 250 mil sentry.
1 dog gives you about 15,000 points at level 10
i believe each sentry gives you about 1000 points
100,000 gold for 15000 points
52,500 gold for 15,000 points with training people

these numbers are not accurate but they are a good estimate...but i know a lot of people say the casualty rate is lower and that is true..i just wantted to point out that its better rank wise to train sentries
