I just played a game where my teammates shot at a single decimated unit using testudo from the front meaning they did 0 damage to them. They learnt that they should shoot them from the flanks and behind after 10 minutes of 0 results. Meanwhile the guy in testudo went from 4k to 12k points in that time simply for being shot at. If there is limit for phallanx there should be for testudo too for being blasted at for 10 minutes straight by 3 javelin and 3 archer units. Whats more stupid is that they actually get points for being shot at , it's simply stupid.

Yeah I think that after some time the romans should get an affect of just losing block chance or just getting a similar debuff as the elephants by being shot at a lot.

You can even see 500 or more javelins stuck in their shields and this is just about 15 men in an almost broken unit pulling this amazing feat off.

Testudo of germanicus and fight in the shade of leonidas give in hight tier more than 100% luck to block missile attak.

 

It's true it's a little mistake to lose time to shoot someone in testudo or fight in the shade with missile attack.

 

Maybe block the missile block at 95% or 99% not a bad idea to can decap.

Just imagine each shield looking like the back of a porcupine . The game probably can't even have that many entities at once but it was an absurd amount in each shield.

If say max 99% is okay.  Should allow for decap, also points should be capped for sitting there and just letting some noob constantly shoot you.

Sure some points is fine but just as a comparison you have an arty player almost wipe 6 units and he gets 4-7k points meanwhile you get the same amount for getting standing still and being shot at for some time.

Guys, you're totally wrong: If there are 500 javelins, it is an extra layer of armor :D

 

And it is good to get points for damage blocked, if you block the archers shots because he shoot at your Testudo, the enemy can't hit your teammates at the same time.
