Why don't caltrops work?


I just bought the Caltrop Belt. But when I tested it on Clash of Clones, the caltrops didn’t not appear to do any damage, nor hinder the ogres in any way. Is there an explanation for this?


If you have bad guys funneling through a choke point they work great, or if trapped on top of the caltrops like walking against a fence they can’t pass. Otherwise caltrops are not so great out in the open like that map.


The units have to 1) be moving and 2) move very close to the caltrops in order to take damage. I like to use them to totally destroy all the little ogres that rush through a small area; munchkins and throwers die almost instantly, for example.
