Has anyone noticed if the timer was shortened? My juggernauts can barely make it to the back of the base if they're in the last wave now. There's been two attacks today where I killed it literally at the last second.

This has happened to me as well; the time hasn't run out but it has been so damn close. This never happened during the previous patch.

It just happened again, this time I swear I saw the 0:00 before I was able to kill the conyard. It was incredibly close, but I killed the conyard slighly after the timer got to zero. Still got the kill and the loot though. Maybe it's just a bug with the display, and the actual time is still the same.

I compared the reports, this one was 1:12 long, and another one before that where I killed it at the last second was 1:07, and one before that was 1:11.
Something fishy is going on here.

lol ok yeah, the display got switched, it is now the time it will take for the battle to complete. I just started another attack and the timer said 0:42 and I thought to myself, "there's no way I can finish this attack, I hope this stupid timer doesn't keep getting smaller on me..." and whattaya know, my firehawks killed the conyard just as the timer hit 0.

Good observation! This basically means that if you see that the time on the clock is less than two minutes, you'll be able to destroy the target. If it's 2 minutes, you'll need to prepare yourself for another go. I wonder that is this a intentional, or a bug of some sort.

Or you'll get wiped out in less than 2 min tongue.gif

You have to understand Vivo's perspective as to why that never occurred to him. His attacks have like surgical precision, there is virtually no waste. I watched one of his attacks the other day on a level 30 something or another and it was so beautiful. He hit it in two runs only, absolutely everything was blocked in either by a defensive structure or by infantry not appropriate to the units he was using so 75% of the defense was locked out and in one run with very little damage taken he took down a Camp that provided 13m in blue drol.gif

So getting wiped out may be valid for you and I but it does not happen to him any longer which makes me very jealous.

You suck too. That is ridiculous. Vivo has tried to teach me to be more selective with my attacking and it is working to an extent (my repair point issue is much improved) but I still regularly require two waves to take something completely out and the first wave acquires significant damage.

Bless you I was beginning to get lonely. All I ever wanted was to be good at one Command & Conquer before my time comes. I don't have to be awesome, I'll be perfectly content just to be pretty good.

Sigh huh.gif

I guess everyone has their role. I always wanted to have an impact on the community because I was actually decent at the game so maybe EA would listen.......but then reality set in so I had to find another path tongue.gif

That's a really nice series of attacks you got there!

Yesterday I got my very first total defeat for like two months; that was a level 30 base with a really difficult defense lineup. Only reason I attacked this base was its location, it was blocking my access to a level 32 tunnel. biggrin.gif
