Towers Respawn on Zikurat

By on June 3, 2009 3:51:23 AM from Demigod Forums Demigod Forums

I was playing a LAN game last night (after 1.01 patch), 2 humans vs 5 nightmare AIs on Zikurat. My ally and I took out the left towers all the way to their portal. We destroyed the 3 towers around their portal and capped the portal. Things were looking good as we both alternated porting back and forth between our citadel and their portal and flag locking. We also captured the left gold mine (protected by archer towers).

However, something odd happened. After a while, ALL their towers respawned (aside from the two very first ones that the grunts run towards after coming out of the neutral portal). This seemed to coincide with one of their war effort increases (can't remember which one). This was immensely frustrating as we had to redo all our work over again (although they did not respawn again after a second time, although we didn't destroy all the same towers the second time around).

This is the first time it's happened to me, but it seems like a pretty huge bug, especially if it was an online match.

For the record, they were not Rook towers, as they were permanent and spawned all at the same time.

Did they really respawn or was it just the archer towers spawning naturally?

towers don't repawn, however new towers spawn, depending on map, when a certain war rank is reached. Just as Forts spawn when you get to war rank 6.

the only towers i know that spawn are archer tower (3k life). these will show up as ur warrank increase. some of them are "linked" like on crubible. when u take down the 2 towers before they hit a certain warrank, they will not spawn. On Zikurat they will spawn anyways. im not sure if u describe a bug (with bug tower respawn, these with 5,6k hp) or u just ment those archer towers.

I'm pretty certain these were LIGHT towers (well, Darkness towers in this case as the AI was Darkness) that spawned, not archer towers. This is because I remember immediately thinking MAYBE Rook was spawning towers really fast at my location, before realizing that it was impossible for Rook to have done that and noticing that all the towers were up. So I am sure this was not a simple archer tower spawn due to war rank.

Maybe it's another wonderfully under-documented 'feature' of the nightmare AI.

An update: So we were able to repeat this again. Apparently at warscore 4, new light/darkness towers spawn (which are awfully close to the old towers). So they're not respawns, but can seem like them when not watching closely.
