NO STRIKES

Demo: https://us-testing.moonlight.tf:27105/de...40.dem.zip

Judges present: Me, Oddschool, DaMno

Overall:
Repetitive AF, fighting same giants over and over again. 6 consecutive waves fighting against rockets, some people even forgot what bullets are. Some waves are very weak due to the Switzerland tier payout, so some of them need a buff.
Make starting cash 1200. You could move those 400$ as a payout for W1.

W1:
A very big AoE food. Burst Soldiers could use some help of medics. Up to you to choose which ones
You could make Gauntlets as supports with Quick Uber medics assigned to them. Make them spawn 1 or 2 at time to make space for other bots.

W3:
Same issues. The stacks are very big, an AoE could annihilate the whole subwave with 1 crit can.
The GPyros could use some help of uber medics

W4:
Replace the samurais with Hamlet Hostility W6 samurais.

W6:
Make the tanks speed 75. Make their HP 35000

Overall: Its a good mission, but got boring towards the end due to high cash/easy bot layout

-w1
  • commons were the only main push force we fought against
  • consider adding more giants

-w2
  • ending dragged on for a bit
  • otherwise good wave

-w3
  • fine wave
  • the giant demos were straggling a bit at the end

-w4
  • fine wave

-w5
  • wave does get a bit easy with the amount of cash at this point
  • brass heavies are just useless fodder
  • milk support is kinda useless to use at this point

-w6
  • wave could use a slight reworking to better fit the amount of cash one would get at this point
Wave 1:
- Changed 3 Giant Burst Fire Soldiers to 7 Giant Charged Soldiers that spawn throughout the wave
Wave 2:
- Decreased the WaitBetweenSpawns on the last subwave robots by about a third
Wave 3:
- Decreased the WaitBetweenSpawns on the Giant Burst Fire Demomen by 2 seconds
Wave 5:
- Added one more GBBox + Gmed pair
- Changed Brass Beast Heavies to Crit Pyros
- Changed Giant Batt Soldiers into Giant Rapid Fire Batt Soldiers
- Changed Mad Milk Scouts to Jarate Snipers
Wave 6:
- Changed Pistol Scouts to W666 Crit Bowmen
