    The builders Day 3


    Finally, the last cart was counted and added to the account scroll. Lucius Tarquinius Lepidus dropped some melted wax onto the list and pressed it with his signature ring, verifying the numbers.
    "Ok, now give me your supporting documents," he told Mark Atilius. "I hope everything is in order here?"
    "You see..." Mark Atilius hesitated a bit and then replied, "we are short six carts of iron." "The carts axes broke all at once and we had to leave the cargo there."
    "Six carts?" asked Tarquinius Lepidus suspiciously.
    "Yes, six carts," confirmed his old friend. "And three carts of clay."
    "So, clay too?" snapped the architect.
    "Yes, clay too," the caravan driver confirmed. "And five carts of crop."
    The place fell silent. The chief imperial architect looked on the trade caravan with a mournful expression.
    "What did you do with the carts, Mark?" Tarquinius asked point-blank.
    "The rulers of neighboring regions took them," Mark Atilius confessed. "They demanded them as a fee for safe passage through their lands."
    Their conversation was interrupted again. A horn sound could be heard over the land.
    " It seems the prefect is calling for an urgent city council meeting." Tarquinius frowned. "I need to go."
    Soon the whole city council had gathered in the main hall of the residence, and the prefect immediately started his speech.
    "You all know we're close to the frontier. Ten minutes ago I received a dispatch from our scouts. The news they brought to me is very important and requires immediate action. One of our archenemies, the Gaul city, has sent an attack our way - a huge army accompanied by rams and catapults. First, we need to get our defenses ready. Second, the best defense is actually a counter-offense. I guess we might be able to destroy that village before their army arrives here. Taking into account their speed, the enemy will be here in ten hours. The architect, Gods bless him, already constructed the tournament square and it’s already a quarter upgraded too, so I hope we have a good chance that our catapults will arrive at this Gaul village faster than their army gets here. The centurions need thirty minutes to prepare the plan and we need another two hours for our army to gather together and launch an attack! Let's not waste any more time!

    Will the Roman catapults be able to destroy the Gaul village before the Gauls attack them? What will be the time difference? (Server: RoA, speed: x2. Keep in mind that the tournament square on RoA gameworlds has a stronger impact on speed than on regular servers).

    Yes, and with 7 1/2 hours to spare, since the carts didn't have all the supplies to make it faster.

    Yes, 50 minutes time difference.

    Catapults traveling ten hours on a x2 server with no tournament square can go 60 squares.
    Catapults traveling 60 squares on a x2 server with a level 5 tournament square (quarter upgraded) take 6 hours and 40 minutes.
    The difference is 3 hours and 20 minutes.
    The attack was launched 10 minutes ago, 30 minutes to plan the attack, 2 additional hours to assemble the troops is 2 hours and 40 minutes.
    So the counterattack will reach the target 40 minutes before the original attack.

    There is an alternate interpretation of the problem though.
    A total travel time of 10 hours and 10 minutes (launched 10 minutes ago and arriving 10 hours from now) would be 61 squares away on a x2 server.
    Counter attack travel time would then be 6 hours and 45 minutes. So 3 hours and 15 minutes difference. 2 hour 30 minutes of prep time would get the counterattack there 45 minutes faster than the original attack.

    It's always much easier to arrange defense when the target provides exact land times and coordinates.

    With level 5 tourny square, roman can reach gaul in 6:40:00, well within the 7:30:00 left before gaul lands.

    Example: 0,0 attacking 0,60

    Gaul 10 hour travel time.
    Roman 6 hour and 40 min.

    Add 2 hours and 30 min to the Roman time and that would be 9 hours and 10 minutes total. The Romans could destroy the village 50 minutes before the Gauls attack.

    Yes, The Romans will be able to catch the Gauls with 50 minutes to spare.

    Default answer

    Yes the fire catapults will get there before the gallic attack hits.
    it will take 6h 40 minutes for the troops to travel and 2h 30 min for them to actually launch the attack so the time until the attack hits the gallic village is 9h 10 min. So there will be 50 minutes difference between when the roman's attack and Gaul's attacks land.

    Ans: 50 mins
    Romans will destroy Gaul village 50 mins before the Gauls attack them.

    Speed = 6 (RoA server 2 x 3)
    Dist = 60 ( Gauls reaching in 10 hrs)
    Tourn. Sq of Romans = level 5 (T. Sq. is quarter upgraded = 20/4)
    Romans attack time for 60 distance = 6hr 40 mins (with T.S. level 5)
    Delay of attack = 2hr 30 mins

    So total time Taken by Romans = 9 hr 10 mins
    Hence 50 mins before gauls reach.

    This result is ASSUMING the 10 hrs that gauls will take are from NOW i.e. from the council meeting. If the 10hrs are from the time when the dispatch from the scouts was recieved, we need to deduct 10mins more from the answer in which case the answer shall be

    The Romans will land first, with 50 minutes to spare, taking 6 hours 40 minutes to reach the gaul village with the quarter built (level 5) tournament square on an RoA Server, plus the 30 minutes for the planning, for 7 hours 10 minutes, and an additional 2 hours for the troops to gather, for 9 hours 10 minutes.

    Gauls: 10 hours
    Romans: 9 hours 10 minutes

    Yes, Romans land 50 minutes before the Gauls.

    Will the Roman catapults be able to destroy the Gaul village before the Gauls attack them? What will be the time difference? (Server: RoA, speed: x2. Keep in mind that the tournament square on RoA gameworlds has a stronger impact on speed than on regular servers).

    Gauls’ attack:
    Here are 2 facts that important.
    1) The prefect told: Ten minutes ago I received a dispatch
    2) …the enemy will be here in ten hours
    So, in total the Gaul army will be on their way for 10 hours and 10 min.
    Catapults (without Tournament Square) travel with the speed 6 fields per hour. 10 hours + 10 min = Gaul city is 61 fields away from the Roman one.

    Romans’ attack:
    1) Tournament square in RoA has greater effect than on normal gameworlds.
    2) Speed x2,
    3) Tournament Square quarter upgraded = 5 lvl
    => Roman troops will be on their way for 6:45:00 + 2 hours + 30 min = 9:15:00
    So, yes, Romans are able to destroy Gaul city before the attack arrives.
    Time difference – 55 min (if we take into account everything)
    Or, 10:00:00 – 6:45:00 = 3:25:00
