Hey there, There are three key topics discussed in this guide: Understand basics of cross How to spot/scout a cross Last how to destroy the cross. I will mark key points in numbers separately and bold them to make sure you will see them, these will be the TLDR: of the guide you can easily check later. Basics of Cross and how to identify it Cross has 1 builder and 1 Incomer, meaning one on your team will receive heavier sends, this is one of the "scary" and revealing parts of cross. 1. Never Overbuild because there is an cross on the enemy team The game will continue rather normally in 90% of the games against cross, not a lot of big saves can happen in the cross team or the incomer will suffer massively. So the game will flow VERY income send heavy on the enemy team, HOWEVER you cannot fall into the flow of the cross or you will lose. Cross has weakpoints in their build as the usual building flow goes something like this: 1 strong unit carries for first few levels 4-10 more unit variety and counters to things 10-15 still only 1 person building ( Exceptions if cross is high skill, the incomer will aid building when you save) 15-20 cross value increases exponentially, end before this or prepare to get stomped. How to Destroy Cross The following tips work as a guideline, the builders CAN adapt and change the build style, but they will suffer immensely. For example is the cross leaks wave 4 after getting brutalized on 3, send 5 and keep the cross bleeding money and force the incomer to help to ruin his game. Send brutes on 4. You might not get a Dragon turtle for 3, which is fine, if you see an obvious cross on level, tell everyone to save for 3 in your team. Brutes are a brutal thing to handle on 2-3 for the cross, they don't have delays yet to stagger the waves and most cross builds currently rely on 1 big thing, sometimes being boosted by dark mage to kill things. Brutes are made for destroying 1 strong unit. 2 turtles 3 for cross means the cross will leak a ton if they are weak there, same applies on 4. 4. Send big on one round between 3-5 The next window to send is 8 or 7, this is not a lethal send unless the cross has done some horrible mistakes. It weakens the cross, doesn't require more than 2 wave of sending if you have good worker counts and it gives you a lot of money, damages the enemy king and makes the enemy cross builder lose a lot of gold, sometimes even enough to need help from incomer to hold the next levels. 5. Send Dinos on 8, 8 dinos total will make them leak some, 12 total will guarantee a massive leak and big king damage. 6. Strongest wave against cross is by far 11. Same rules apply as 8, send tanks. Kraken + bunch of dinos is gg. 6. Delay is the blood and soul of cross, delay is immensely strong on 10, DO NOT send on 10. The next window is your kill window, the best opportunity to kill the crossing team. At this point the Incomer is usually at 10-15 workers, the general goal is to get 20ish workers before building so you can cause a big headache for the soloing team. This means a send here is the best option as Holder is lower on income, meaning the 7. 7. Cross value is at its lowest point relative to send potential and wave strength at this point of the game during 11-14. How should you decide the round you send on? Many factors, but here is a list of what you should keep in mind when selecting the wave you want to win: What waves have they leaked on? What do the soloers/the other cross have as towers What rounds have been killed slower What units the cross has Then choose appropriate sends, try to get at least 2 auras each when you send, pref 3 to guarantee one aura always going to the cross, if you have the mythium. Kraken is strong as it tanks and allows the delayed/staggered wave to arrive the party, 1x Four eyes is good, don't send many, it is mainly for killing the king. IF the game doesn't end here, your last option is going ALL IN on 16-19, choose the appropriate wave, you need to finish the game here. 8. All in on 17-19 with the most powerful wave against the enemy set-up, this means push workers to barely hold the waves, imagine any waves after your send level to be guaranteed loss. TLDR: Never Overbuild because there is a cross on the enemy team Don't follow the gameflow of the enemy team, make your own gameplan to kill cross, when the cross breaks they lose. Send big during 3-5 Send Dinos on 8, 8 dinos total will make them leak some, 12 total will guarantee a massive leak and big king damage. Delay is the blood and soul of cross, delay is immensely strong on 10, however if you send something to one-hit delays, 10 can do big time damage. Cross value is at its lowest point relative to send potential and wave strength at this point of the game during 11-14. All in on 16-19 with the most powerful wave against the enemy set-up, this means push workers to barely hold the waves, imagine any waves after your send level to be guaranteed loss Thank you for reading!
