I've pieced together a tower that's moderately difficult to raid and tends to catch a little more than 1/2 of the people who attempt it, I'm happy enough with my kill rate overall.
However, I can't kill Knights. Nothing seems to bother them in the slightest. Zeke doesn't do enough to put them down outright, they shrug off damage traps, stuns don't last long enough to matter, ranged, melee, traps, CC, whatever. No setup I've come up with has managed to even threaten a Knight.
Seeing this in my replays I started leveling my own Knight, and I'm seeing the same thing. I can ham-hand my way through almost any castle, and even the really nasty high-crown/kill-count ones just make me pop a pot or two.
I've heard that late-game Knights taper off as their armor makes less of a difference there and I know that changes will happen as the beta continues; but is there any way in the current state of the game to fight back against Knights?
