Great stuff, I like the idea of this format a lot, I think that, along with others, I have talked about it on several boomtubers videos as a way to avoid burn out and increase participation. Hopefully people like it.
Funny thing was I had already said that I would miss this crab due to other commitments before the format was announced. Obviously supercell thought that would be a shame and threw me a bone 🙂 Might have time for gold after all 👍

Lets see how the leader boards shape up - insomniacs get no advantage lol

I like this format better especially since I now have 3 accounts. While you may not be getting as many attacks as you could before, I think a lot of us will actually get more attacks since we won’t be losing out on any by sleeping or having a life outside the game.

Insomniacs with only one account get no advantage... those with 2+ actually get a bigger advantage with this format IMO.

1. Burn through all 40 attacks on NZ time
2. Refine attacks 12 hours later on EU time
3. Do final push on NA time
4. Make a mistake on NA time
5. Do another push on 4th account in NA timezone
 
No more waiting for attacks on 'pacer' accounts. Can push hard, refine, share attacks/plans with buddies and dominate the leaderboards.

Yeah absolutely right but I feel that those with the capacity and forethought to have pacer accounts were already much more likely to do well, now they will do even better but that doesn’t affect how the average player will enjoy or deal with the crab.
If players want to push the pvp leaderboards they need to prep, if they want to do high level ops then they need to prep. Crab is no different. No aspect of high level boom beach is likely to be accessible for the casual player. Those that do manage it are doing very well and should be proud.
What does affect the average or casual player is being able to choose when they crab and not feel like they are missing out. This is potentially a great thing.

The trophy threshold are dramatically lowered though.
I for one, usually lose at least 17 attacks due to sleeping and life commitments, so I think that is a wash for most regular players.

It helps many players when comes to boosting statues. They'll use far less powder during this event.

Out of interest, are you tubers still publishing their attacks as they usually would?

Normally it’s whoever can stay awake the longest... so even if people watched the vids for tips you’d have to be pretty committed in some respects to push.

I’m wondering if there is going to be any new strategy? Are people going to wait until the last day to “push” after watching others? Or just continue as normal?

Is this my one chance to do well in a crab...... I lose so many attacks as I value, you know, don’t make me say the four letter “L” word... over this game sometimes....

Lol,

I hope this will pick me up out of the doldrums. BB just lost its appeal for me over the last week. Disappointment re lack of update I think.

Hope I’m not wrong!

Looking forward to the next BIG update when they make a new skin for the Boom Mine.
