Only 20 Stages. At least I got my first Iron Statue.

Level 62 for me, ran out of available time. Not expecting to win with that but I am happy with it 🙂

Actually stopped at 60 0% on Sunday morning as I was getting “the look” but for the first time ever I did a bathroom hit and got those extra few stages but no other opportunities to use my remaining attacks.

Mostly used 5 lazortrons, 2 critter cannons, 1 medic and Bullit with energy drink. Being a slow learner it took me ages to realise the medics weren’t really worth it and swapped them for another lazertron.
Statues were rubbish for this crab (and every crab so nothing new there) 5/3/1 (+psc), two full boosts and diamond was fairly comfortably secured 🙂

I found this crab to have been very enjoyable and a lot less “grindy” than previous ones.

Thanks to Golden Guy and Megatron for sharing their hits, very helpful 👍

No problem crow!

I only made it to stage 63 myself, 270 in the US.

I was super tired from a long week at work last week and the crab took a lot out of me (plus posting my hits). I sadly only got to post my hits through stage 40 this time around.

Next crab I’ll make sure to get some more sleep the week before and grind out my videos.
Overall, not the best of crabby weekends for me but at least I’ve got another shiny trophy.

Edit...we’ll see if just the link works. Thanks for the heads up Crow.  Made it to 70. Had 5 left but 70 looked like a 5 hitter, fully boosted so I said this was good. Not a fan of this crab.

I made it to 175 but this title is stupid so I won't bother. Who in hell came up with that title...Pfft!!!😜

Nice job guys

Haha you should have seen mikes title or worse my one. I couldn’t think of a good title so came up with “Alan Parsons Wet Pets”. Of course that was my secret plan to deter anyone from entering, who would want that 🤪 You scuppered that evil plan by coming up with a cool one 😡

He doesn't want to win because he's holding out for something 'special'. Like Alan Parsons Wet Pets.

You’re right, we should change it to Alan Parsons Wet Pets for him, I can’t see anyone one beating 175. No need for a picture orrs we trust you 🤪

I stopped 1 attack into Stage 60, to take #1 spot in my TF, I had 8-9 attacks remaining, but without Instant Training, didn't feel like burning another 1000 dimes to push higher.

Did I say 175? I meant I attacked lvl 1...75 times!! This crab was hard😂

This is the first crab I couldn't be arsed with tbh, got to 45. Found it boring without any of the previous frivolities

Post by: Artist formerly known as Crows Nest on Dec 04, 2018, 10:34 PM
Wow that is a lot of accounts orrscores, gotta be a record 🙂
The stages people seemed to reach on the leaderboards seem to be lower across the board, was it harder or were people just not feeling it?
Looking forward to crazy turtles crab roundup to see all the leaderboards and general feedback.
Also odd that there wasn’t a global leaderboard publically available, Supercell did say they where working on something for it so maybe there will be a video.

Was defo a few stages that were a bit crazier than normal
Noticed in Ireland the top ranking was lower than normal, either people feeling the burn or this was a fail for MC
Title: Re: Forum Proto Crab contest
Post by: Orrscores on Dec 05, 2018, 12:17 AM
On a serious note. I stopped at 42 with 15 or so attacks left. Mid 20s with my other. I had a busy weekend and I was lucky to get that in.


It just may be peeps getting burnt out.I kind of miss the way It was sometimes.

Got my first Diamond Trophy.Finally had some free time for a Crab weekend. Bit the Bullit and swapped some GBE guards for TD/TH.
Of course my very next Op hit I wipe out on a Complex hit, got to the kill zone just fine, then "oh shit, I've got no GBE left!"  ::)

Hey guys, I’ve been busy with training after work the past couple nights. Looks like Dark Star has the highest score and is not “The Proto-gy”. Congrats

Congratulations Dark Star and well done on working out how to post screenshots, we should all get awards for that 🤪

Post by: DarkStar on Dec 06, 2018, 04:39 AM
Thanks. This was my last “push” crab, I’m transitioning to VP push here soon. I’m formerly CodenameDuchess (in the old SC forums) but I’ve kinda retired that account to focus on one and the game is losing it a bit for me as I await this update sometime in 2019.  ;D

This is pretty cool site Fritz. Thanks for doing this. I never posted a ton but after it was gone I realized how much the forum affected my enjoyment of the game. Shame it’s gone.

Ahhh...sneaky ....nice to see you made it here. We need more people like you. The forum isn't gone...we just moved, thanks to Fritz. Congrats by the way, that's a way cool title😀

Congrats Dark Star. Keep us informed on the push.

Post by: Eoncho on Dec 07, 2018, 12:51 PM
congrats on winning.

This crab was harder. For the first time since the cryo crab I lost a stage before 30, in fact by the low 30s I had already lost like 4 or 5. It was at that point I knew I had to try something... unique... By that point I had taken all the protos out. But I thought on one stage it could work, so I tried a new combination. It was do or die at that point, I was concerned about making diamond, I had tried out a different statue config, which in retrospect is probably the reason my usual tank/scorcher setup did so poorly (I was trying 7 TD 2TH and 1GBE). My radical idea however paid off big time.

I solo'd most of the rest of the 30s, something like 6 or 7 of the remaining 8 in the 30s. One of the experimental troops in particular had a DPS value higher then a boat of tanks, lasers. Most of the rest of the way to 60 I used bullit, four boats of tanks, and four boats of lasertrons. I hardly lost any of them. The only real weakness it had was to simos and shock blasters. Rocket launchers weren't really an issue. Bullit takes most of the heavy damage, the tanks take most of the damage from rockets and such as well as delivering heavy damage to a pinpoint defense. The Lasertrons however deal more of AOE type damage, The help they provided was significantly damaging the defenses in the back making them far easier to destroy. The Lasertrons were hardly ever getting in the line of fire. Which is why I never liked them, but this crab showed me a way I could make them work. I tried using all my attacks at once, once I hit 60, I stopped, I was just too tired. I had 12 attacks left, I wasted a few in the 50s because at that point I just didn't care, I was too tired. I imagine I could've reached 60 with almost 20 if I had realized this troop combination earlier and paid more attention to what I was doing in the closing stages. It also didn't help my fish distracted me by attempting to spawn a day or two prior (sadly none I believe made it, but I'm trying to get it to happen again).

👍 what fish do you have?
I was wondering the same thing...is it a red fish? Blue fish? One fish? Two fish?

Need details!
Title: Re: Forum Proto Crab contest
Post by: Eoncho on Dec 07, 2018, 07:05 PM
They're Discus, I had my suspicions, but still them deciding to spawn caught me off guard. Though even though I don't think any made it, it was still quite something to look up and see it. Its been a dream of mine for over ten years now, since the first time I decided to keep discus back in like 8th grade. I just need to adjust some things to make conditions more ideal. Your average pet store won't sell them, so you may not have heard of them before, too 'difficult' to keep. Discus are kinda shaped like angelfish, but even more peaceful then even angelfish, and far more beautiful. In my opinion, the most beautiful. A notoriously hard to keep fish, but far worth it. Both of them are more of a dark blue, it became more prevalent as they grew older. They're probably a few months older then a year old, the male likely just reached sexual maturity, it takes them about a year to reach it, a few months longer for males. They're still very young, they can live up to ten years. Unlike with smaller fish, with larger ones, you can really see differences in personalities. Seeing the eggs was so much more enjoyable then any of the diamonds I've gotten. Though those were definitely cheaper, buying things in preparation for another spawn has left me a little light lol.

Nice 👍 I had discus when I was a kid, still have fish but not true tropicals, too much work. If I remember right there are two types of discus; red and blue so TheBro88 was strangely accurate 🙂
Title: Re: Forum Proto Crab contest
Post by: Eoncho on Dec 07, 2018, 08:25 PM
well usually brown and blue, also there are heckels (which are even harder to care for then normal discus), but those are very rare, I had one once, which was wild caught, very skiddish. Even most tropicals don't like it as warm as discus though, in some regards that's helpful, not many fish can deal with 90F if you require it if certain diseases rear their head. Still the low 80s generally tends to make the room warmer.

Too much work would be trying to take care of fry without the parents... dear heavens... It would take at least 2+ water changes daily, feedings every 6 hours at least... that makes the 50%+ water changes every few days I should be doing seem mild. Plus its not so bad, I usually just do it while I'm playing BB.

Overfiltrating the tank helps, I like doing that, especially on the 20 gallon tank I used to originally grow these two out I had a filter for a 40-70 gallon on it... though I tried adding a second filter for a 70 gallon onto that... but it made a water current waaaay too fast. Though a long time ago I tried basically putting 5-8 filters onto 30 gallons of water (20 gallons with the fish, and a ten gallon which I put all but one of the filters on). That ended badly, since that ended with 5 gallons of water on the floor in the middle of the night Lol

That sounds like to much work Eoncho....much easier to just add some panko and tartar sauce!!😜

Post by: Eoncho on Dec 08, 2018, 05:14 PM
I meant better then getting any of the diamond trophies.
They decided to spawn again, but still most will probably not hatch, water is too hard, and I haven't gotten my water softeners yet.

And you Orrscores… You sir are not allowed anywhere close to the discus! Lol

Just joking of coarse...I love fish tanks..very relaxing.I raised a couple large mouth bass fry that I trapped as a kid. They are eating machines...they especially loved discus,I mean goldfish!!😁

Post by: Eoncho on Dec 09, 2018, 04:20 PM
considering the price of discus... especially adult discus... that would be a poor idea. One place I know of sells juvenile discus for $120, and I saw adult ones there, though absolutely beautiful top of the line specimens for $250. I bought these two when they were only like 1-2 inches at a cheaper place for only either $20 or $40 each, forget which one it was. Goldfish are much cheaper lol
