I'm certain that's a trebuchet :P
The orcs will probably deploy actual catapults, as they're less complicated.

Although this catapult does use a counterweight, it also has a rigid arm. A true trebuchet uses a sling.

It's clearly a catapulchet!

Troops look fine to me, but I just noticed, where are the stack size indicators?

I guess it's just some "Screenshot mode", since there's no UI whatsoever.

Actually, I think that's where the hero is placed to be sent over the wall. I never figured out how they could make a melee attack in H5. It should not have been allowed; until the front gate was knocked down.

Hope that there won't be a need for using recources to buid a new catapulchet every time oneone needs to build a new one. Would probably cost me 10 wood and ha decent amount of gold. Hasn't anyone invented wheels in Ashan?

Also: how the heck to griffins fly around with all that extra weight on them? Dragons I can expect to be wierd but even they don't have armor. Or am I just the only one who finds heavily armored flying beasts counterintuitive?

Don't know about that. I think someone at Ubi just thought that they put them on themselves. Wouldn't suprise me. :D

How does that little Ammo Cart hold all those extra Titan lightning bolts? A Dragon couldn't even fit in the First Aid tent!

this is what happens if you give artists 'creative freedom' and there's nobody to oversee the results.

That's preposterous - whatever failings this game might ultimately have, the art design has clearly been rigorous and consistent. You might not _like_ it, but it's obviously been thoughtful, intentional, and, I'd argue, successful.

A trebuchet is a type of catapult... philistines.

And they obviously put it together for each siege, and transport it in a box (you know, it would actually be cool if they added a little box for your horse to drag around the adv map if you have war machines with you).

Lithium battery at the bottom, duh... And of course the dragon doesn't go into the tent, they come out to treat him...

Clearly you haven't read any replies or realised that this is called "Picture of the day" for a reason. :D
