I concur with all opinions and uses of the Dowutin Brute stated above.
I once did an attack with 8 Dowutins just to test it. 5 precooked (L1) and 3 in SC (Ls3-8). rather big failure for the cooking time involved. Managed one star by using air and storms on outlying buildings.
Opponent's Sc troops and dekas were duly lured and killed within seconds amid a circle of Dowutins, but then they just marched into turret range and were slaughtered before achieving very much.
due to his limited range, long cooking time, high UC and lack of focus he's currently way inferior to 3 buffed heavies -or maybe even three unbuffed high level heavies. Especially in damage and cooking time.
