This groups clever use of oil pots allows them to defend this tower for a long time against a zerg:

If we ever defend a keep (which I hope we will) we should do this!

Such a defense technique could be useful for Nkai's pack especially, given it is focusing on defense and survival. Thanks for finding that

I cant help but wonder if this will be nerfed when it comes out XD. it was epic to watch, but I think it was a bit skewed to their vision. Whereas they want many uncoordinated players to fall to few organized and skilled players, this ratio might be a bit more then they were looking for. 5 or 6 held of a whole zerg. We'll have to see how balancing like this plays out.
If they don't change this, you can expect to see swathes of keeps being defended by 3 oil pots and a healer. Fun, but we'll see.
We're getting so close to release, my scales are quivering.

Inside keeps (this was a tower on a farm), there's only enough room for two fire pots to rain down liquid death at a time. More on the inner keeps, but not all in the same spot.

Oil pots can't do anything to defend against trebs and ballistae pounding your doors/walls. So it balances out well enough.
