Advanced Multiplayer/Nightmare Strategy
Hey everyone, want to improve at multiplayer or having trouble with Nightmare mode? I made a video that explains some of the more advanced concepts of Cannon Brawl's strategy:

For you already pro players, let me know anything I missed in the comments. I'm thinking about doing a part 2 where I focus on how to effectively use individual weapons/defenses.

I really like this but you made two big misstakes. On the forest you use a balloon to take the first mine and then you place a laser behind it to take both diamonds. Lets ignore the fact that no pro player cares very much about the top diamond since it is impossible to defend, because the principle of the laser hitting multiple location is really sound, and ask the question why did you not place that laser imediately and in so doing saved you the time and cost of that balloon?

Secondly. Using anything that takes more than 1 hit to open the diamond mine on western coast (such as the cannon you used) is pretty much an auto-loss on high level play. The enemy will then have time to block your diamond mine. If using a laser this would be done by firing a second shot after the first (the one used to open its own mine) and then quickly placing a balloon and later on a shield which will prevent you from claming your own diamond mine.

A video on how to effectivelly use different things is a good thing. I have sometimes thought about doing something similar but never have had the time and energy to do it. If you decide on doing it feel free to contact me if you want to make sure you got things right.

Awesome, I'll definitely get you guys directly involved for the part 2.

And yeah, I'm not playing 100% efficient in part 1, but I was aiming more at the level of player who had finished campaign and but struggled with nightmare. I didn't want to overwhelm by going too many steps forward.

Doing a video on more specific weapon/map combos would be a good place for the even higher level 'just do laser immediately, ignore top diamond' type commentary. I'll probably message you guys some time next week for that.

the problem of why there losing could be there wasting gold early game on stuff like that, or wasting time to open up a diamond mine in 2 shots... try showing them how to save 20 gold on a opost, 20 extra gold early game pays for you to use somthing more costley like fortifyed mines or excelerators

and the only reason why i take the top diamond mine is so i can hold the middile island.

btw petey if your gona do moe vids on this put some in like this

low ground vrs high ground

the math of income

the math of XP

cooldowns
Getting a few examples from high level players on each weapon would be pretty nice too. Perhaps a game emphasizing each turret, showing how each can be used. Just a friendly suggestion. And define high level player how you will, but I'd be willing to help at least
Oh, and I meant to tell you that making the shop money retroactive so I could buy stuff even though I hadn't played in a long time was absolutely amazing, and it was super nice for you to do :D

yea that double diamond part could be made better, you put the lazer within the bottem diamond range get it first, then you can shoot there base or aim it right to open the top diamond in one shot anyways, and yea you always make lazer on that tiny map it just way better then cannon there
