If gates are sealed do I still have to add cultists to gate locations?

Pretty sure yes, although I tried to argue if the gate was sealed how do they get through?

I was not successful in convincing my team.

Lol. That's how I've been playing too. I just place them at the sealed hate until I hear something different.
But the cultists don't come through the gate. They are simply there trying to summon. So maybe it does make sense.

Since the cultists are people who travel the world to invoke the old ones, I believe that no matter if the gates are open or closed (unless it's with an Elder Sign).

The cultists would be gathering at the closed gate waiting for a sacrifice that might re-open the gate. They don't read the rulebooks.

The official ruling is that yes you still place Cultists on closed gates, so yes Dagon would place Cultists on gates that had been sealed. It takes a lot to deter a fanatic of the Old Ones after all, and a sealed gate just isn't enough.

Thematically speaking the Cultists don't come from gates, they are you friends, family & neighbors who have gone NUTS for Ancient Ones to destroy the earth!
