    Hey guys !

    Hawk didn't create this thread, so I'll do :p

    This thing is simple:
    The challenge is to beat wave 20 with the lowest value possible !

    This post will be updated with new best scores everytime someone beat wave 20 with a lower value.
    To be a challenger, you will need to provide:
    - patch you're using
    - a screen of your build
    - when you use legion spell, write which one was used and which unit has it.
    - video (or that would force me to check your build -> If I don't have time before next patch, you screwed :p )

    Using One Legion spell is allowed but will count as an extra 200 value.


    Overall best score: 2845 (v3.17 - xibox)
    Current patch best score (V3.17): 2845 (v3.17 - xibox)

    Best Score per patch:
    V2.43:
    4060 - Bluejin
    V2.44: 3280 - Mick

    Beat it with 4115 value. Patch v2.43

    2018-12-13_21h46_15.png



    We should note the patch number and have a hall of fame. One high score per patch, as well as an overall high score.

    Something like:

    Best score: 4115 (v2.43) (Jules)
    v2.44: 4225 (Curing)
    v2.43: 4115 (Jules)

    Probably should require video for official submissions to be counted. Also some ground rules. No legion spells. Are fully stacked Hydra, fully stacked Kingpin, Boosted Veteran, and Hardened Golem allowed?

    Maybe that's too tryhard, but tryhard is fun.

    No Legion Spells required. By the time the boss focuses the Fatalizer it already starts outhealing his dps.

    So, I updated the post !

    NEW RULE: Legion Spell now count as 200 Value
    REQUIREMENT: Video needed. If you don't upload video, I'll try to test your build myself, but I can't promise I'll have time, so if a patch comes out before I do, you participation will not be registered.

    SCOREBOARD: Now display :
    - best score per patch (thx @Jules for the idea)
    - current patch best score
    - overall best score

    GENERIC RULES: Units abilities are allowed, as they part of the unit value. Feel free to use Hardened Golem, Fully stacked hydra, Fully stacked Kinpin etc...

    I didn't think I could be @Bluejin value, especially after the patch, but I guess @Seraphin was wrong. We can still beat wave 20 with 4K value. Actually, I made it work with less than 4K :D

    Behold the new champion of this Challenge !

    3985 value build
    no legion spell
    patch 2.44

    Wave 20 clear - 3985 value.png

    Good thing with wave 20 is that there isn't any random in focus, so this build barely hold every single time :p

    Here is the video

    Nice build Naduos, pretty creative. It would be a shame if someone yoink'd it.


    3540 value + vampire = 3740 value.

    BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE




    This one is a bit rng, but if everything works perfectly, the dark mages will alternate buffing the fatalizer because of the walking time + starcaller.

    3475 value + vampire = 3675 value.

    v2.44

    Nice builds guys !

    Sadly, I managed to improve them :p

    V2.44

    3190 value + Vampire on Fatalizer = 3390 value
    Wave 20 clear - 3190 value - vampire.png

    Proof by video


    I had something weird tho. I ran this build 10 times, and everytime, it held, but one, where fatalizer would get focus waaayy before butcher and headchef.
    That shouldn't happen if I'm not mistaken, as 20 should always focus same order :confused:

    I made a screenshot at exactly the moment I cleared it, you can see the units TP + 300g from the boss and the build I made. That should be good enough?

    3080 value + 200 value vampire on fatalizer = 3280 value.

    Maybe try it only with 6 and not 7 units? More like a normal game? Or you use 7 units and as summoner spell "roll"
    Maybe only for me more interestend, only my 50cent

    @Mick Just tested your build. It's pretty inconsistent. Cleared only twice on 12 runs :confused:

    @Der Geo Yeah, I thought about that. But I think it's way more fun to be totally free of picking whatever we want.

    Really? I did it three times and it cleared three times. Anyway it still counts right? :D

    And I think the fun of the challenge is to stretch it as much as possible. There is no realism in playing level 20 with 3500 value and enemy not sending anyway :p

    Maybe the rules should include something for boosting peewees/vets but i dont know if that matters on wave 20.
    Anyway its my turn to see wheter or not i can beat the highscore :)

    I did not boost them, btw. If you do you should add the gold of the boost I think (even though it's worth more than its 20g value).

    edit:

    Nononono, the challenge is to beat it with the lowest score. I just ran my build 10x again, and it defeated the boss 5x. It's not a guaranteed hold, but I did hold it with 3080+200 value, and it can easily be reproduced if you do the build a few times. Sooo, you didn't beat the challenge and you have to keep on going and improve your score :D
