There are several types of dragon funneling according to the need of the base. Depending on how you need to funnel dragons in, each type has merit.
Mass dragons are strongest when grouped together, ensuring destruction and survival while pushing deeper into the base. Splitting into multiple groups will only weaken the strategy. Funneling is the way to deploy the best chance a dragon army has.
Classic dragon funnelingEdit
The classic dragon funnel allows 2 dragons to cut a line and the rest of the dragons will go into the base. This is the most basic dragon funnel and works with most bases.
Staggered dragon funnelingEdit
Staggered funneling works much the same as classic funneling except instead of waiting for the dragons to cut the line, dragons are deployed in a time sequence to allow the line to be cut sequentially making the same effect in less time.
The deployment is systematic from one side to the other in quick sequence. The first dragons laid will destroy the outlying buildings first and follow the deployment until all dragons are in the middle (deployment #9) and the funnel is created for the path to the core.
Dragons in a lineEdit
Dragons deployed in a line is not really a funnel but can have much the same effect as a funnel (on the right base). The biggest drawback of a line is that more dragons have the chance of going off around the sides rather than into the base.
Layered dragon funnelingEdit
Layered funnels take into account multiple layers of buildings/defenses and keep dragons back for deployment at the right time to create the funnel needed to go into the core.
