Yes, you miss a good strategy :) Currently the balance is on the harder side, and the skills do help especially in the early game. Have you tried replacing you carry so he is a better fit for the coming wave?
To be honist I try to.. I seem to be doing alright with a wolf pack ... got pretty far using I suppose a 'guard pack' same tactic it's just the leveling side of things. I have a small understanding how most of the towers work well and what seems lacking but I still have trouble understanding all the stats on the card.. its alot to take in and exactly what they do. I guess its adjusting from other TD types it's really tying me up.. what is the deal with pots.. what is the point of merging them? I'm relatively a new player so please be patient as still learning... the difficulty does and has kept me invested but it's at a point where I want to be getting somewhere and I'm not. Thanks for getting back to me
Merging pots is mainly to just get another type. Especially in the beginning you need drop rate pots so there is that, If you don’t figure out everything for yourself (which can be fun to some) in the forum and the discord there are a lot of advices
