  1. I got a better attack for that battle…. a small contingent of archers to the east with fire arrows for the prime distraction, but only 2 or 3 volleys. More archers to the north or south throwing volleys of night arrows in between the volleys of fire arrows. So just after a volley of fire arrows ends and the defenders recover, here comes a larger volley of night arrows that they can't see. This would minimize the defenders' ability to guard the SW corner of the camp and prevent them from repelling the breach until it was too late.
