    Preperation Phase:

    You need to roll Peewee Grarl and Eggsack :D

    For Wave 1:
    You start with Grarl stay on 2 Workers
    send 1 Snail after the Wave start. (You need the extra income to hold a brute on 3)

    For Wave 2:

    Add 1 Peewee and boost it.

    For Wave 3:
    If the Enemy did sent 40 on 2 dont add anything and boost the peewee.
    If the Enemy did sent 20 on 2 add 2 more peewess and boost.
    If the Enemy did not sent on 2 add 3 more peewees and boost.

    For 4-6:

    Push super hard Workers especially when you got a resend on 4 or 5
    you can hold 6 against a 80 send with Hydra + 3 Peewees (350 value).
    Wave 7+:
    Wave 7 and 8 are your weak Waves add some value (more peewees etc) it can be good to leak 1 or 2 creeps and overpush a littlebit because you are way ahead in workers.



    I hope this Guide help you all :D

    Feel free to criticism me.

    Seems still like a dice roll, even with 4 boosted peewies on 3 :
    -can still leak 3 to brute if the brute is one of the last targets
    -can leak 3 to turtle snail if first snail and then turtle are focused
    -can leak 3 to triple snail if snails are focused first
    -if the game is slow and you have a 5-worker start sending to you, you're screwed on 3, dino tanks peewies forever

    The more I test Egg, the more I think they are really hard to play. Definitively, I would prefer to play something else rather than Eggs.
    There are a lot more starters which are really better and more safe to use.

    Egg builds for 2-3 changed since the new pathing came in.
    But that should hold 2...
    U can either put the egg just i sqm to the right, or build the peewee half a step back.
    Builds for 3 differ a bit, but still really safe with peewees, aquas, pollys...

    I don't play egg a lot anymore, but the rolls i do pick it are probably my best win rate.

    Why are the tags "atlantean" and "LTD2 guide atlantean" when you say in the first sentence that you have to roll peewee, therefore need to play mastermind? o_O
