    NAPS (8 lives left when managed to 85 in real deal)

    Had to go into Sandbox for the ZOMG, as I was not fast enough, should have waited for the thing to hit the spike or break into BFB's 2x SS THEN GZ. Anyways VERY HARD DC, well worth 150MM, had to farm a crazy amount to have a chance on the much later rounds.
    Lightshot

    I made sure to replicate what I had by 85 in Sandbox mode so no changes were made, and nothing would have changed, at worst you may need to sell & rebuy GZ some before starting the round

    I couldn't hit my ground zero fast enough on 82 to avoid wiping. Had all the BFB's popped though and things were piling up at the end. Guess I needed to use it a little earlier.

    To make this beatable in the future I'd suggest just giving 5K to 10K more starting cash. That should be enough. Or just enable farms. That would also do it.

    I don't want to waste any MM on this challenge, so I'm calling it quits until it shows up in the vaults.

    Doable for someone with better dartling skills than I have. I am terrible with dartlings...

    Yeah, I doubt this is NAPSable, I managed to 80 in a normal game NAPS ofc, then wiped, there would not be enough cash to sell & rebuy GZ, and BAD's really does not work well here. 77 can be done with very good SS timing (2x) great dartling aim MS the BFB's then nuking with GZ, 78 3x MS on ceramic rush, and GZ the Camo, 79 is chain SS, MS, and GZ sold and rebought for 80 GZ MOAB and MS, then I wiped as I could not sell & rebuy due cash starve, to 80 is possible with sell & rebuy,, but beyond that looking at major cash and poping issues. And reward should be 150MM, it's really hard overall.

    Hitting 77 fairly regularly before biting it. I have 2 2/4 darts, 2 2/1 darts, an 0/3 plane and a 2/4 spactory. But methinks it's time to hang it up for this one...especially for $50 mm.

    Maybe I'll figure out how to set up challenges and propose a few on my own. Major kudos to NK and all of its staff for keeping this game running. The challenges are my favorite part of it and I know it has to be really hard to come up with new content on such a consistent basis; it feels like we're kinda scraping the bottom of the barrel lately with the challenges, April has not been kind. (Glad I finally got Driven earlier this year!!)

    I think it is doable as well. Using Dartling specialty, this gets me to 80:

    2/4 Dartling left side (you want it on the left for round 77 and for 63)
    2/1 Dartling Top
    2/0 Dartling Bot (to 2/1 ASAP)

    Spactory to 1/2, then 1/3 ASAP on 52 (in the middle of the eye - you can fit two on low res)
    2/1 Dartling right side ASAP

    Round 58: Top Dartling to 2/3 ASAP
    5th Dartling to 2/1 in top left corner (not sure it matters that much where)
    6th Dartling to 2/1 opposite the 5th one
    63 - careful with your aim
    Spactory to 1/4 after 63, use ability on 64 - might need to use Dartling ability as well
    7th and 8th Dartlings to 2/1 in other corners from 5th and 6th.
    2nd 1/4 Spactory in middle of the eye
    Right side Dartling to 2/3

    And that should get you to 80 without selling.

    And if you want to build a 2/4 Ace, just have it at 2/3 by the end of 69 and you'll have enough for 2/4 by 77.

    It's doable. I used Dartling Spec. and started with:

    1x 2/3 Dartling
    8x 1/1 Dartling
    1/3 Spactory
    3/0 App



    I added 7 more 1/1 Dartlings
    3/0 App > 3/2 for 59.
    for 63 add 3x 2/4 Tack Shooters. Trigger a Blade Maelstrom when the ceramics are in the intersection at 10:00.





    for 64 I sold the 3 TS and 2x 1/1 Dartlings for a 2/4 Dartling.
    Upgrade the spactory to 1/4.
    Add a 2/3 Ace.
    76: sell Spac. Ace to 2/4. Use Ace ability once all ceramics are on screen.
    77: sell Ace. buy 1/4 Spactory.

    I died on 77 so maybe I should have gotten a 2nd 2/4 Dartling. not sure...

    As I said - WAS THIS TESTED - WHERE IS THE SCREEN SHOT TO PROVE IT. Come on guys, it's not hard to ask for proof of testing prior to releasing a challenge!!!

    double cash dart gun speciality and anything you do it works. just make sure to start with one BADS, then make 2 of them

    Gave up: Did double cash and Ace speciality. 14 0-0 Aces, 4 2-3 Aces. Six 2-3 Spactories in the centre and spammed Dartlings, with two 2-4 ones. two 2-3's.
    I don't mind a challenge, but if you have to do double money to achieve it, that defeats the point.

    So, if I read the above replies correctly, nobody has actually done this., let alone with normal amount of cash. So, same question as earlier - was this actually tested????

    Perhaps all future challenges should include a screen shot of them having been completed to give us mere mortals a glimmer of hope. It's getting worse week by week, and despite many people commenting on the (perceived) lack of testing, nothing seems to be changing.

    Yup... I think it is a good challenge, but it should definitely be worth more than 50 mm.

    Start with a 2/4 Dartling to the left of the eye, a 2/1 below it and a 1/1 above it. 1/1 to 2/1 ASAP (break the leads and you will have it).

    Then a 1/3 Spactory
    A 2/1 Dartling on the right side
    Top dartling to 2/3

    And then I think things open up. But that should get you through the early rounds.
    Died at 83 . It is very tedious..

    I've made it to 80 once and died on 79 another time. For the amount of time this challenge takes, it should be worth more like 100 mm. Lots of micro and a LONG challenge, with no ability to save should make it worth a lot more than it is.

    I think a 2/4 Dartling makes a huge difference with the ceramic waves on 76 and 76.
