Rather than continue in an old patch thread i Shall bring the quote with me.
Has anyone else tried battleground missions this patch? Since my allies and base aren't dying in two shots any more, they seem more possible, but it also still seems like the difficulty is rather high. I've only found one of them so far; they don't like to seed for me. But from what I've seen, it seems like the towers get almost infinite range on their shots, which makes it pretty hard to complete because you're racing to bring them down before their endless barrages wipe out your base from the far end of the field.
I just had another go at battlegrounds....(this is a couple of continents in so all the enemies are unlocked)
on The Chosen One, they are still impossible.
on Hero I just managed to complete one, but
A) it took me 3 in-game days
B) this was with the boosted health orbs
and C) It was only really possible through "cheating", by which I mean every so often i used splashback to push a clockwork probe high in to the air, the probe then just sits motionless in the air, more importantly your allies group motionless beneath it so that you can get a good group going rather than just watching them run to their doom. (when you want your allies to attack you just destroy the probe)
One way or another it was not my idea of fun. I mean as noted above, on my difficulty of choice they are impossible so I have been actively avoiding them, so I don't want to profess too much of an opinion, but the question is does anybody actually enjoy these at the moment?
