Invulnerable Barricade and dwarfs
I like the new upgrade for the barricade. You can permanently seal off a single path in a map or several in an Endless round... But you can also make dwarfs suicide themselves against it by placing one near an entrance.

This has been immensely helpful in Shallow Grave, since you just plop a damage immune barricade in the first gap and all the dwarfs will go for it and explode despite the fact it can't take damage. On Aerial Assault on Endless they do the same thing

Pictured above, the dwarfs come out of the entrance and see it, then actually walk off the cliff trying to get to it, letting the other barricades live free of worry.

What do you think? Is this intended behavior? Should dwarfs continue to target invulnerable barricades or should they be able to recognize when one is damage immune?

Current dwarf behavior has broken a few maps. Exploding dwarves at an entrance with an invulnerable barricade can take a bunch of their friends with them.

I would add a multiplier such invulnerable barricades are not allowed. Otherwise, I would change nothing.

How is that broken? That's a solid tactic to use... the game has many similarly strong tactics that almost break the game because of how many units the strategy can handle.

Try stringing up a lot of spinblades and cleverly placed black holes and watch the hilarity (use higher starting gold + fully upgraded gold/bounty tower + chokepoint + upgrade spinblades to keep enemies choked there). I got over 500k xp on a regular non-endless map last night doing that, I had several 300-500 unit combos, and at one point I had 3 or 4 waves all partly alive at the same time because I was spamming next wave as fast as possible. Nothing had a chance to get through. I think I only used 5 runes on that round tho.

And that's just one way to win huge! There are tons and tons in this great TD.
