No strike

W1: scouts straggled, could have maxactive reduced or made into support.
W2: could use stronger support after the tank, grus have health drain, pls remove/use the valve template.
W3: Felt FIne
w4: make soda poppers not hard ai (normal)
W5:  Remove 1 grapid squad. Replace natachas with regular gheavies, replace heavies with something projectile based, remove engis.
W6: there are too many bot types active at once, it's just spam hell for most of the wave. Remove Giant Direct Hits and engis, make conch soldiers into regular soldiers.

Overall: Significant improvement, I would reccomend a bit more testing however.

No Strike from this session

Wave 1 :
This wave is perfectly fine for the most part, just make the Heavyweight champs support limited.
You should also slightly tone down the non-pocketed gauntlets at the first part, this should make it less taxing for non heavy teams.

Wave 2 :
Tone down support bot spawn rates.
Dwarf Heavy HP should definetly be lowered, idk how much they currently are but they should be lowered to like 60 or 100 hp due to their size.

Wave 3 :
Make the mittens use the valve mittens icon, there is no need for the icon that is currently being used. As the valve mitten icon does the job well enough.
Increase max active (2 to 4) on the Giant Soldier pair at the end.
Replace conch soldiers with regular soldiers in support, they can get very annoying at times which is too much trolling.

Note worthy comment :
Quote:randomguy : rest of it is pretty much ok but maybe tone down supports a bit (idk tho).

Wave 4 :

Judge comment that summarizes my feedback on this wave :
Quote:randomguy :  i think it felt fine, but maybe a giant should be added to the start to fill in the awkward space before the gscouts

Wave 5 :
Make the g heater use the valve heater icon, there is no need for this icon ok, valve's is good enough.
The finale of this wave is really weak, the commons aren't able to support the fairly weak(at this point) Giant Heater, especially since there isn't any burny stuff in the wave.
You could probably go and make the G Heater critboosted for some trolling as the template does not feature a vision range. However i suggest reworking the whole finale a bit. Maybe you could add an extra tank there?

Wave 6 :
This wave was once again mostly fine, the start dragged on a bit, you should increase the spawnrates of the Gmed pairs since they were the main cause.

Overall :
This mission needs a couple of changes but it is going in a good direction. Keep this up and it should be able to get in the next event.

Pass with changes

Overall, this mission feels much smoother than it used to be. Before it gets passed to the final judging, there are a few small adjustments to the current waves listed below:

Wave 2

- Make the tank spawn later with something that can support it.  By the time the first few giants have spawned, it was more or less down at 60% of its hp or lower.

- Make the last giant bursts come out a tiny bit sooner

Wave 5

- Reoccurring theme with the first point on Wave 2's tank. The beginning tank that spawns also gets shredded relatively quickly by the time the first few giants have spawned. Make it so that the first tank spawns a little late so that the giants in that subwave can support it much better.
