    This is my intake on the best strategy for tower defence. Feel free to leave in the comments on how to improve this.

    NOTE: This strategy works FAR better on perilous than any other map, simply due to the layout of the tower area. I have an 80% win rate with this strategy, hope you find it useful.

    First, immediately rush where the mobs will start. The very start of where you can place them on both sides (the first turn) is where you need to work. Put a mage tower on the close side of the start and an artillery tower on the opposite side. Upgrade these as soon as possible. When the other team starts sending zombies, you'll almost instantly get from 15-25 coins per second if you have level 4 towers. Start sending zombies once you have 500-700 coins. Once your zombies have got you to 1,000 coins, place mage towers further down to farm the cave spiders as well. You'll begin to get points crazy fast and you can start to mash mobs. Upgrade your gold to 10/sec first and then buy cave spiders.

    Cave spiders are going to be your mobs for a LONG time. Snag 500 to get your gold to 15. Then, get 1000 to go straight to magma cube. You may be thinking, magma cube?? Giant isn't that much more expensive! However, magma cubes are much more efficient. Hopefully by now your team has set up point farms for stronger mobs by now and also have magma cubes. Send 1 magma cube as a distraction out into the battlefield. Then, because the other team will be completely distracted, have your team send 4-10 magma cubes out at the same time. If most of them make it, this will do MASSIVE damage to the castle. It wouldn't be bad if you sent creepers first to act as a buffer.

    You're most likely in Armageddon mode by now. Send in a wave of magma cubes that will leave everyone with 1000 coins. Send help by giving speed boost in the heavy guarded areas and Regen when they're in the open. If most of them get in, the castle will most likely be killed.

    Some things to note
    1. Placing mage towers next to each other is ineffective.
    2. Poison towers are useless because of mage towers.
    3. Zeus towers are the most effective way to damage giants and magma cubes.
    4. Magma cubes are more effective than giants.
    5. Don't buy spiders silverfish or endermite. They're just weaker versions of another mob.

    this is my strategy

    spam zombies for exp
    keep on spamming zombies until you have unlocked gold mini (500 exp - 1500 exp upgrade is locked)
    buy cave spiders and keep on spamming.
    unlock gold mine (1.500 exp)
    keep on spamming spiders until you can unlock giant.
    save for giant or get speed / regen potion.
    wait until a few seconds before armagadon and send your giant(s).

    You can also buy towers and sell them before arma but the enemy can spawn a giant aswell.

    My strategy:

    1. Protect your castle during the game, but specially at the beggining.
    2. Spam zombies until 240EXP and buy the gold mine upgrade and unlock normal spiders.
    3. Spam normal spiders until 700EXP and buy the gold mine upgrade and unlock creepers.
    4. Spam 1 creeper + 11 normal spiders until 1500EXP and buy gold mine upgrade.
    5. Spam spiders until 2000EXP and unlock the giant, speed and regeneration for mobs.
    6. Save money until 6000-8000 coins and spawn the giant. You can use regeneration and speed.

    Resons:
    *Spiders are the best mob to spam because they have a better relation price-exp (20coins-10exp)
    *The creepers will distract the other team.
    *If you have done all right, you should be able to send the giant just a minute before Armageddon mode starts.

    My strategy (before spiders were nerfed,now 1 spider alone costs 80 exp to unlock and 80 coins per each? what? why?)
    1) Spam zombies at the start until you get 200 exp
    2) Upgrade gold mine
    3) Send more zombies, until or unless you have enough expo to unlock spiders (40 exp)
    4) Spam spiders or zombies mixed, getting as much mobs in as possible, until you get enough money to upgrade ur goldmine once more (500 exp)
    5)Then, keep sending spiders to upgrade it even more (last time) (1500 exp)
    6) Then, keep sending until you get 2000 exp, with this you will unlock the giant, speed, and regen AOE potions
    7) You are done, now wait for armaggedon!
    8) Even 1 minute before armageddon starts, you should have 13k coins! Send 1 giant on the 30 second mark, it's better in my opinion, because when the giant reaches the castle, the guards would be disabled and the castle would only have 200 health.
    9) After that, send ANOTHER giant in (wait 10 sec) to finish off the enemies. You will definitely need speed or region potions to help speed the giants up, and they are GUARANTEED to lose.
    10) My win rate ratio of this strategy was 100%, I don't bother playing on tower defense anymore though, since for one spiders cost 80 coins for just one now :( I think it makes the mob useless, since it's a waste of money and they die very easily. The game is very long on its own, so spamming zombies is not suitable for me. So yeah, that used to be my plan, best one in my opinion, but if it wasn't, id like to know which one would be better :eek:

    Hey, talking about strategy, i like that. So here is my strategy, and i'm the number 4 (Donkerbeest) of most wins on TD.

    1) Build towers at the spawn (3x tnt tower 1x ice tower or mage tower, Other players in your team have to build to)
    2) Spam zombies till you get your gold mine to 20 coins per second ( while you do that, upgrade your towers at the spawn)
    3) Build more towers (yes you can, because you only send zombies, so you can save money for more towers)
    4) spam more zombies till you can unlock the giant. (TIP: If the other team have not that much archer towers, you can go for 12 endermites in the armageddon, save alot of coins)
    5) Have fun in the armageddon.

    Giants are good to end a game, thats for sure, but! Do not underestimated the power of 12 endermites in combo with speed potions and regen potion.

    I was using spiders to get 1500 exp for giant, but after the update of spiders, i go for spamming zomies and make more towers. I do not upgrade to 25 coins goldmine, 20 is enough for me.

    TIP!! When you have the last hit on a mob, you get coins! This way you can make alot of towers (or upgrade towers) and send giant or endermites in the armageddon.

    HERE ENDERMITES WIN!

    My strategy:
    1. Build a few Artillery Towers next to the enemy mob spawn. Then, spam zombies to upgrade gold mine until 25 coins per second (1500 EXP to unlock)
    2. Continue spamming zombies and unlock the Blaze
    3. Continue spamming zombies and unlock speed and regeneration potions
    4. Wait... Do nothing or help defending (eg building towers or go melee on enemy mobs)
    5. In normal cases, you will have over 10,000 coins now
    6. Wait until 1 minute before Armageddon Mode
    6. Buy a lot of speed potions (about 6 to 7)
    7. Send a 12 Blazes 30 seconds before Armageddon mode
    8. Use the speed potions to help the Blazes go through enemy Archer Towers quickly
    9. Use regeneration potions to heal the Blazes when they arrived at the enemy castle
    10. GG

    This strategy has over 95% chance of winning.

    Yea, but the problem is, you dont build in the beginning? which is verry important to do. How would you kill the zombies when the enemy spawn them?

    Try build like 10 towers next to mob spawn and you will see your coins go up by 30 - 40 when an enemy zombie wave comes.

    So what happened is when I played a game of Tower Defence, the other team sent 48 endermites like 10 minutes after the game started. I ask them how and they said that they are all in skype call, they saved up to 48 endermites and sent it together :D If you can really get that much people to help you can win easily LOL

    I'm always having problem playing tower defence while they all quit or they are noobs or they don't have teamwork (i'm not trying to be rude and i'm not saying about newbies)
    Keep on quitting made 6 vs 6 become 4 vs 4 or even 3 vs 3 which made the game boring. Noobs will put Mage,ice and poison towers next to each other and wont save space and didn't upgrade goldmine and much more! No teamwork is my biggest nightmare, while I'm asking who rush for gaint, who defence or who , no one reply!!! This end up having no people is rushing for gaint which end up losing.

    sorry for my bad english
