      Done With Ninja Specialty, I tried alot before, and furthest I made is 47 this DC relies way to much on distraction luck,and even with Speciality I had some luck issues. Needs a Cash increase to 13.5-15K to reduce luck issues.

        You have to buy a farm at/by round 46. I crowded the ninja just after the lightpole. Sell farm at start of round 49 and I was sooo close to affording a 4/0 plane. Bought it just as I was losing the last life in round 49. I'm sure it can be done with more tries.

        I did finally get to buy the 4/0 plane, but still died in 49. However with the 3 4/2 ninjas, I survived 49, only to died on 50 with the 4/0 plane.

          Died somewhere around 54 with a Spectre, two 4/2 ninjas and a 3/0 farm, everything under a 1/1 village. I don't think a 3rd ninja would have made the difference as I had to use the shadow double again and again to survive so far anyway. Just 1-2k cash at that time, so no chance to afford a 2nd spectre for a long time.

          EDIT: Not to mention the distraction luck I had to get there...

            Looks like another culprit for ninja seeking luck too, grr..

              Ok, using Ninja Spec I found this not that hard. First, spectre seems reluctant to shoot to the right on this track so place towers at the end.
              Start with village right leaving enough room to the right for Aces.
              2x 4/2 ninja to left of village.
              2/3 boomer left of ninjas
              Village to 2/1
              Boomer to 2/4
              Using turbo and ninja shadow will get you to 52.
              Before 52 sell boomer for 4/2 Ace.
              Add 2/4 Ninja.
              Before 60 sell to get second spectre.
              Keep 2/4 ninja and add another as money allows.
              Sabotage plus two aces will win.

                This is so dependant on distraction luck! I tried farming and just kept leaking too much. The only mildly successful strategy I have was:
                0-1 Village
                4-2 Ninja
                3-2 Ninja
                1-2 Ninja
                Ninja to 4-2
                Ninja to 1-4
                Village to 2-1
                Use sabotage on MOAB and immediately start round 47
                Boomer to 2-4, turbo on 49
                Die on 50

                edit: Ninja Speciality lets you start [albeit leaky] with a 2-0 Farm, and also makes rounds like 43 and 47 very easy with the abilities. I sold for Spectre before 51, and ended up rebuying a farm and getting a 2nd Spectre for 60.

                  this challenge is not possible at all. I don't think it was even tested given how Spectre and ninjas don't work at 50, and you don't have much money for anything else. This challenge needs a nerf to remove the 5 towers max altogether. I think then it's possible but still hard.

                    Before we start accusing rtg of lying, I think we all may want to take a step back and actually look at his suggestion.

                      You mean to say the spike factories are overlooked?

                        it still doesn't solve the major distraction luck at the start.

                        and if you think the challenge is possible that way, then beat it in normal game and give picture proof.

                          You still haven't looked at the suggestion.

                          Edit: oh, I misread what you were saying. Maybe you did decide to look at the suggestion, but my point still stands. We shouldn't be so quick to assume.

                            what makes you think I didn't?

                            try the challenge with Spactories, then come back to me if it's NAPSable or not.

                              I'm just saying that we should actually try out the daily challenge the way the user suggested it before calling them a liar.
