There is a little debate in my alliance about the value of the common troops obtained via the bug in the last version (the basically 0* troops you begin the game with) and titanium shields. Several think these will make a massive impact in damage dealt (one person said an extra 14% damage vs. an unleveled 1* troop, which I doubt). Me, not so much. I know there is a damage calculation out there but I don’t quite know what it is and how accurate it is, nor how it would apply in this situation.
So, is there a massive hidden value to these or should they be fed away?
