Thoughts on the Hasty Crab


Hell it's tough! Can't keep up with zookas and smoke!


Stage 53 and 12 attacks left - no legendary this time me thinks

Consensus in my tf is that it's much easier then last. Great opportunity to get the crystal trophy or first legend trophy.

Banks would have been perfect all the way till stage 60 or more(occasionally, some crzm  hits). Hope, you get the legendary trophy.

Made it to 60 with 25 attacks left...I was very busy last time around and only got the iron trophy on one account. I didn't realize you couldn't get legendary unless you got diamond on previous one...I guess there is always next year😭😭😭😭

I like this one. I used scorchers for the first few levels. Lost some as I didn’t know where the hell they went.

Scorchers & full boost & speed serum = phone that couldn’t process the game quick enough and was all jittery.

Easiest Crab ever.

On two accounts, I played up to stage twenty no boost. Then swapped statues and lit up, got to stage 53 with a 5-4-1 and to stage 60 with a 4-4-2.

I've never come close to jumping that many stages in a single boost session before.

RZCM is terrifying to smoke. Flippin’  zookas be like Usain Bolt. Meanwhile, rifles unload slowly for whatever stupid reason and are still back in the beach ...

Lotta fun. Just did twelve stages in the last 50 mins of Crab to get the diamond. That’s about 4 mins per stage. With the TMed mania, I just went all out on every attack, which was fun, since I don’t have IT. Definitely an easy Crab, but quite enjoyable. Did take some adjusting getting used to throwing all gunboat weaponry a heck of a lot faster than is necessary than at any other point in the game. But yeah. Lotta fun.

I switched to your statue loadout on my main account for this Crab (5 TD, 4 GBE). I do have instant training, and I did use banks for most stages.

Responding to Fritzelly, I agree that with the troop speed, zooka rush hits are hard unless your reflexes are fast. Banks are manageable. I did use CRZM for some stages. I just cleared stage 89. Decent for a recently un-retired player, I think.

It was fun in that it felt substantively different from the main game. It was not fun in that it was a major drag - that was 89 stages. That's a lot of attacks. Some people clear twice that number of stages.

When I switched to armour it became a lot easier, got to 60 - never realised I didn't have diamond, cannot remember what happened last year stopping me from getting it but one of the boomtubers did mention there was an androoid bug last year for it.

I had a lot of fun. I just lack the time to okay. So much better with all attacks up front!

I managed Diamond on 3 accounts, but ran out of time on a couple others just shy of Gold.Its always tricky managing Op hits during Crab, when to swap back to zooks so I have time to hit. Trying to roll boost for Op as well as Crab.
Being over Mothers Day certainly didn't help either ;D

Easiest crab ever if you ask me. I went triple diamond on this one and had attacks left on each account.

Such a long Crab. I ran out of time. I got to 133 on my 163 account (mostly Banks/TGM) and stopped at 60 on my 3 offence account with about 20 hits to spare. I did the 3 offence run to diamond in a single boost session with a lot of force closing. That’s how easy this Crab was.

On the face of it I agree it was an easy crab but more importantly a fun crab. I can’t say how easy as I was again short of time and stopped at 60 since I only had gold previously.

I have been countering the grind that many people feel by doing it unboosted. However this time I was so short of time that I didn’t even scout and always opened with tgm to bulldoze through. If it needed a second hit then another tgm or hz always with energy drink.
Good fun 👍🙂
