Title: Chinese New Year Mega Crab Contest
Post by: MikeCT1020 on Mar 03, 2019, 06:33 PM
I’m a little late getting this up but let’s start getting those high scores in. Up for grabs this month is the forum title of “Baconator”. Come on, with a pig as a trophy you didn’t think I’d come up with a title related to Chinese New Year did you?  Also awarded to this month’s winner will be 1 free baconator sandwich*.  So come on, let’s get those screen shots up.




*Good only at participating Wendy’s restaurants or if you can track me down, catch me, and make me pay for one.

Maybe they prefer Five Guys? In-N-Out?

Was a tough old crab, don't think the health boost made much difference - bring back life leech

Bring back speed serum and super soldiers.

I didn’t go nearly as far on this one as I did on the last 2. This time around I got gold on all 3 of my accounts but stopped after beating level 40. All 3 of my accounts finished at the same point.

No diamond for me 😱

54

After the last Crab where I only boosted once and found the unboosted hits so much more challenging and fun, I decided to do this whole crab unboosted.

And it was great fun 🙂
531 statues and all the tribe boosts. I compared my stats to 3 offense boosted but that isn’t at all accurate in hindsight as not having my th boosted makes a huge difference.
Did all my hits when everyone was asleep or snatched when out and about. This cost me with stupid half asleep hits and losing mobile connection but I have to say it was my favourite crab yet.
I used all sorts of troop combos and heroes and it was a real puzzler. Also there were no videos that could help me. It was also refreshing to have no time pressure from boosts etc

But ultimately I was too relaxed and fell asleep before using all my attacks 🤪 I still wouldn’t have reached diamond though, probably(very likely actually)  58. Lost 3 attacks to disconnects, did three hits changing troops but forgetting to change the hero and a few “what did I just do” attacks so diamond would have been possible but hey ifs and buts... 🙂

Doing it again next time....but better 🙂


Edit by challenging and fun I meant that it wasn’t an endurance thing, just deploying armour and Bullit. For me less stages was more fun

Left 3 attacks on the table ....not that interesting or fun of a crab without extra abilities IMO..

I finished on level 58. It would have been nice to have a special gunboat ability, especially remote hack. There seemed to be more shock launchers than usual.

58% on lvl 64..I have to say the shine has worn off these monthly crab events. Just not as excited as I use to be when they were a few months apart. Still fun but....

Got to level 66 but can't say I enjoyed this crab at all, more of a drudge

I am surprised that no one else liked this crab, it is my favourite one as there was a variety of viable troop combos depending on the stage.
I wonder how we will feel about the next cycle of repeat crabs? Some to look forward to, some not I guess.


PS remember those screenshots 🙂

Hit stage 60 and quit. It was a grind for me. Still some fun hits, but nothing special, that’s for sure.

I enjoyed it. But it wasn't a favorite. It's definitely more fun with temp abilities, super troops, special stuff. Disappointed they won't be updating them or trying anything else new. Finished at 78.

Did anyone submit a finish for this contest?

Submit a screenshot of your stage reached if you want the BACONATOR custom title 🙂

Maybe just maybe nobody wants that title

TmbStallions has it at 83 right now. Next up looks like JBlon if Tmb is ineligible.

Blon Jovi I needs to post screenshot if T isn't eligible

From my understanding of last months crab is that if you have won and won in the past then you get a crab by your name indicating multiple wins.

Tmb gets the double crab icon I guess

He gets the extra crab icon for being a previous winner who has won again but the next eligible player who doesn’t have a custom title should get the title.
I think that sounds fair?

Surely someone has a screenshot from this crab other than me, post it and become THE BACONATOR 🐽🙂
