There is something missing here of late. In the previous weekly challenges, the winner revealed their strategies or even a jpg of their tower layout. This achieves two things: your opponents analyze and improve and as a result, the top players get better challengers.

Another thing I would like to point out is the person choosing the maze should be more imaginative. They can impose rules on the maze selected. Such as use the least amount of towers to to get to the end (not necessarily the highest score wins). Another one is no juggling. Another is green towers only on a grinder or super grinder (play till you fail or finish).

One thing I've done in the past was to go through every maze and defeat it three different ways. First I do it juggling, then no juggling and a third completely different way. You can implement this in the weekly challenge verifiable via screen captures of maze and scores. Highest average wins. I'm sure ya'll can come up with better ideas than I can to make the weekly challenges more entertaining. Your imagination is your only limitation!

Sorry for the long winded post!

Regards,

Thats exactually why the wed challenge died. I say make a separate challenge and ban us three I guess. There could be two challenges others could compete in both.

Nobody should be banned from a challenge. Its up to the challengers to rise to the challenge. Juggling or no juggling I've improved over the last few weeks from this exercise. Small teasers from time to time by the maestros would'nt go amiss to show us mere mortals how they have achieved their scores IMO.

Another great score Spider. Now its time to move on with a new map.... Your key is much too obscure, I used three cannons & two lasers in my setup and it did'nt help me much!

I believe Portal Balance Build as 1 hour left . So offfitially my score is 171,451 towers 84 Although be it that it not offitial because its on xbox.

I used concussion, gun ,2 temporals , a laser, and some green towers. I switched the positions of my gun and laser and 2 thousand more. Congrats to Spider! This maps a though map to juggle and is more well suited to the way Spider juggles. I am still trying to come and get you though.
