Best new Troop: The Rainmaker
Best Prototroop: The Rainmaker
Nothing beats seeing these monsters rain down mortar shells and blow up everything. If you’re careful, there are only 2 defenses you need to worry about and both of them are prototypes so you may not even come up against them.
Troop of the year: Zookas
Once you learn how to use them they are simply the most powerful troop in the game.
Regular Defense of the Year: Shock Launcher
The one defense that works well against all troops.
Proto Defense of the Year: Shock Blaster
May not be the best against any one troop or combo, but is really good against pretty much everything.
Best New Prototype Defense: Flotsam Cannon
Can do significant damage while alive then splash damage capable of taking out low health troops when it dies.
Best Mega Crab of the Year: New Years Crab
TD, TD, GBE, and RR all boosted by 50% plus rotating boosts and gunboat abilities. My new favorite crab of all time.
Worst Crab of the Year: Tribal Crab
A mega crab based around the worst troop to use for the mega crab. Even their boosts didn’t make them useful for very long.
Best Temporary GBA: Speed Serum
A close category. Cryobomb was close, remote hack might have gotten it if you could use it on shield generators, but in the mind of the committee (the committee being me) noting beats seeing your troops go crazy.
Best Tribal/Crab Boost: Troop speed
Troops running and attacking faster. Love it.
Worst Tribal/Crab Boost: Was Medic Damage this year?
Even if it was last year, Medic Damage was so bad it wins this year. Anything that boost the wrong attribute of a troop could also take it. Boom Cannon health is always a bad one as well.
Worst Temporary/Crab GBA: Crystal Shield
Does that help at all? Troop regeneration was a close 2nd. That could be a useful one but costs too much GBE for what it does.
Best In Game Villian: Dr T
Dr. T really stepped up his game this year with monthly mega crabs. Let’s face it, we all wanted that Dr. T figurine even if we knew we had no shot at it. If we had a Boom Beach costume party, half the people would go as Dr. T.
Most Despicable Villian: Drew
He closes the official forum then leaves for CR. Good bye and don’t let the door hit you on the way out. We wouldn’t want anything to happen to the door.
Supercell Forum Mod of the Year: Bakunin
We miss you around here.
These are all my picks. If you disagree with any, make up your own list.
