How disappointing is that ! You chose a general to go into battle for 8,000 food , after the battle is complete all surviving troops return and even if the general you chose did good in battle , it does not return , you have to wait another 24 hours to get another one . It should be like the rest of the troops , if the unharmed troops return and the wall miner returns so should the general , mecenaries should be the same , if you have them unharmed in battle they , they should also return , don't see why you have to recruit more every time . On the same topic it would be nice to hire a general and as you hire them they come with a battle plan so that the general is not all over the place in battle !

The 24 hours cooldown, makes the generals pretty much useless in my opinion. They aren't really powerful enough, to require a cooldown of that time.

I think they need to do more damage. Then they would be worth the investment to upgrade

Yes seeing that they don't do much , it's kind of the last thing to upgrade on my list of things to do in this game .

My understanding is that the more damage the General takes in battle, the lower the cooldown time (and crowns) required to get them back on the field. I've had quite a lot of good battles where they only needed a few hours cooldown, or a few crowns.

I've been trying to work out the cool down times for generals, it seems so random. Can you tell me more about your theory?

Well, if they get killed, the general takes 24hrs to "recharge", but you can test it out by dropping the General into the battle right at the end when you've destroyed all the defensive buildings. I think they should return without any cool-down - or a very low cool down. Or drop them in to battle the last tower or something, so they take a small amount of damage.

I can't test this at the moment - as both mine got killed yesterday in particularly touch incursions.

I did a test whit a lvl 5 general hp 11400,he took about 1/3 dmg.. Cooldown 9 hours.... I still say they should reduce the time, as they don't really play a big role in my attacks due to the massive cooldown..

I did another test last night while raiding, I got several uses out of 2 generals. I didn't look at the hours, but crowns to re-charge. They ranged from 4 crowns x 2, 9 crowns x 4, in 6 easy battles where they didn't take much damage (deployed late) - and then 50 crowns when they both got killed in tough battles.

Sure the recharge is not great - but they want you to spend money. Problem is that it encourages people to attack easy targets.
