    So as we all know, newbies placing towers horribly in Tower Defense are the most annoying thing ever, especially considering that they never listen to advice.

    Down below, feel free to suggest ways to help this issue. As far as I know, it's Tower Defense's biggest flaw.

    Here's mine: post the two tower placement tips in the tutorial, and make watching it mandatory for new players.

    Please do not mention, "find a way around it/go along with it", etc.

    I just say block putting mage/ poison too close.
    (Ice can be used in a strategic way)

    Although there is always the fact that they may not listen to the tutorial either. In any case, it could help, so good idea! :)

    There is no way to fix this because stupidity cannot be fixed. Some people are born with very little ability to think and you can't change that. The same thing with math and strategy and whatever, some people just don't have the brainpower to think at the level of others.

    While I wouldn't put it like that, tower defence is a team strategy game and that's how it was designed. Bad plays and bad players will always be apart of the game and you can't fix that. Making your suggestions would remove the strategy of the game so this most likely will not get added.

    I didn't suggest anything, I basically said the same thing you did; that you can't change this because some players will do bone headed things.

    Sometimes, trolls can intentionally act as if they're just noobs so that they don't get banned.
    I wish you can actually do that...

    How about an "Auto Fix" where the tower automatically fixes itself?

    So this issue can be said by any game.
    Having noob teammates in EggWars or Skywars or SG isn't fun either.
    I'm not sure how it's going to solve people being noobs if you give them a tutorial...
    Just my thoughts.

    I agree with @MrTokay on this one. Newer players that do not know how to play the games well are everywhere, not just in Tower Defense. We just have to be patient with them and try to help them learn. Remember, we used to be the new guys to the games as well. Eventually they will learn. Just try to have fun and not be so focused on winning. As I said before a tutorial may help, but I do not agree with all the suggestions.
    For this one, I feel it would take away the fun in the game and the strategizing if the towers were to correct their placement automatically. Sorry but I do not think this is the best idea.
