So…. ummmm… CAMP WARS. They’ve caused nothing but camp chaos this last week for many of you. The peace and tranquility of our summer getaway event has been well and truly shattered, but as ever through the fog of confusion, one thing shone through, and that’s the Addicts readers constant desire to help their fellow players as many of you shared you’re glitches and then strategies of how you were winning Camp Wars.
Yes there were missing visuals, glitches and a glaring lack of support from TinyCo, the Camp Wars brought a whole new kind of bedlam, and whilst some of us were actually winning, many more of you were losing battle after battle and therefore asking in the comments how on earth we were doing it. For the best part the answer was “I don’t know”, lol. But we shared what we were doing and thankfully although there’s not a singular strategy that works in every game, each of our strategies seemed to help some of our fellow players.
But a long time and regular reader Sunnydale15 rightly pointed out to me that as the strategies were in among a lot of comments across various posts some players might miss them, so it might be a good idea to pop them into a post for those that are still struggling to win and get past the Streak 5 necessary to complete this weeks main Questline.
So in no particular order, and sadly with no guarantee which one will help you, here’s the strategies that have been shared and saw positive feedback from other players. Thanks again to all who shared with us, really when this game gets tough, you lot really pull together and continually do what TinyCo fail to do, help players to keep playing. I’d follow any of you into a pretend battle any day. Thanks.
The basic rules on my opinion:
1. Start sending Camp Pranksters (tap tap tap)
2. As soon you pushed back, send Popular Girl (make sure to have at least one fighting, also stop sending them as soon you managed to stop the rival campers and send Camp Pranksters or Campfire Man instead, otherwise you will lack of attack power and you simply will be overrun!).
3. Release Campfire Man at once you manage to stop the rival campers (it’s take precious time to accumulate 200 energy!)
4. As soon you upgrade to MAX start mixing campers (a lot Camp Pranksters a few Popular Girls and Campfire Man (amount depends on streak level)).
5. Energy upgrade should be done only then camper energy still recharging (so you don’t waste time) and also not pushed back.
6. Upgrade campers and/or cannon leader (can be a big difference!).
7. Don’t forget to use water cannon! Best to use it when having at least 3 or more rival campers in it’s range (but don’t wait too long!).
For those that are still stuck, this is how I did it:
Level all the way up to MAX without sending out any campers
Use the cannon to push back the campers a bit and release 2 boys and 1 girl
Continuously release 2 boys and 1 girl (I had to do this for at least a couple of minutes)
Use the cannon again to push opposing campers back and release a fire guy immediately afterwards
Keep releasing 2 boys and 1 girl
Once the opposing campers start getting pushed back towards the middle of the bridge, release a couple of fire guys
Eventually, all your campers will get across
I had lv 2 prankster, lv 2 girl, and lv 1 fire guy, along with Peter at the canon. My strategy was to “sacrifice” at the beginning and just leveled up to max before sending out any campers. This allowed two opposing campers to immediately get all the way across. After that, then I just use a strategy similar to those posted here already. Send out pranksters and girls and eventually a fire guy here and there. And use Peter’s canon whenever it was powered up. (This is because all the action will be by the Griffin camp at the beginning.) Here is the math logic to back up why this worked for me. By not having anyone oppose the first couple of opposing campers that make it all the way across, I am not “wasting” any hit points on those opposing campers. That is, those opposing campers don’t get to damage any of my guys (as compared to sending out guys first and then leveling up in which case those guys would just die with no benefit while I’m leveling up). I hope that makes sense. Again, I don’t know if this will work for others, but it finally got me past Streak 5. Cheers.
I couldn’t get past level 5 for ages… I then changed strategy.
I now release 2 boys 1 girl, 2 boys 1 girl while in between upgrading and using the cannon and continue this and then when I push them back a bit I release a fire guy… won 5 and 6 straight off…
Russian Tigger’s Strategy
Hi guys, I stockpiled a few Water Balloons over last 2 days in order I could test a theory, and please bear in mind this is JUST a theory. I basically suspected the energy meter level seemed to make the difference in whether I won or lost a Camp War, and my suspicions proved correct after I did a few tests battles. Firstly I’m battling with a L2 Camp Prankster, L2 Popular Girl, L1 Campfire Man and Scoutmaster Peter as a Leader. And I only won the tougher Streak 5 and 6 battles and started to push rival campers back towards their camps when I upgraded my energy production button to the MAX, so even although I only needed to upgrade it enough to release Campfire Man at 200 energy in the wars I continued to upgrade it, thus allowing my energy bar to fill quicker and this is what appears for me to have made the difference between being trapped by their campers in my own Camp, and pushing them back and allowing my Campers to invade their camp. On the attempts I only upgraded to the 200 energy bar, I lost, in the battles I upgraded it to Max, I won. I tested this at Streak 5 & Streak 6, and later once I’ve Water Balloons I’m going test it at Streak 7. Is it coincidence or is this the strategy you need, well I can’t say for sure but I think if you’re struggling try it yourself and let me know if it helps, I hope it does.
Now one other thing, there seems to be an issue with Pt. 8 of the main questline’s task: Beat The Battle Continues in Camp Wars. We are seeing a lot of comments that despite having completed it by winning Streak 5 the task hasn’t checked off, if you’re having this problem, please let TinyCo know, although the task has checked off fine in my game we have reported it to them. But I’m trying gauge how widespread the problem of not winning Streak 5 or being credited for it is, so please answer the question below if you’ve got time.
Thanks again to everyone who has helped out their fellow players!
