Lightbulb Volunteers for Cannon Defense in Order To Get Revenant Ram

I've been thinking of doing this for a while now, and I'm glad to say I finally got this far. If anyone is interested in doing CD, kindly post here so that I can get your name for the attempt to get the Revenant Ram (which I need SOOO bad!!!!)

Please post here if you wish to join CD for a very good ram. I will be open for suggestions as to where to meet, which CD area to go to, and what time to hold this. I only need four people to do this with. Also, any ideas for a strategy to use until the waves where you get good loot are highly appreciated. Thank you so much mates. Looking forward to seeing who will be interested in doing this with me.....

I am getting unlimited next week. I can join in almost anytime during summer break.

As far as stratgy goes, watch out for wave : 8, 13, 14-15.
Wave 8 is when the first massive fleet hits. There'll be tons of war sloops, war gals and war frigates.
Wave 13 is the same, but they have even more HP. While many disagree about using mines here, I think you really do need them. When fired into a straight line in front of a warship, it can pretty much sink them instantly.
War sloops and gals : 4-5
War frigate : all 6 mines.

Wave 14 is just a complete pain. Tons of light sloops with rediculous HP and speed. I usually start with a vertical line of mines, then make a second line after the first fleet passes (they will actually dodge the mines if there are gaps in between!). Usually lines of mines at the very right where the ships spawn and keg in the middle work well. Then just rotate between Scattershot and round, or cold shot if anyone gets any.
In later waves, there are also fleets that shoot like 500 fire barrels at you a second, which almost perma-knocks you down. Target shot is actually very effective during these situations. I'd suggest having someones in the group having some during later waves.

If you can get past these waves, the rest are just a repeat of these types but with more HP.

I don't think I'll be able to join, but I have some tips to get to VERY high levels. In the first few waves try to save up as much as possible and mostly use round shot, I would not suggest using only the type that auto aims to the ships because it doesn't deal that much damage and only goes for the first ship. When you get to the high enough level where you get cold shot always try and get the middle of the sea frozen so no ships can get through to the beaches. You should start to get some weak famed rams around wave 20 or so. When you get to level 20 cannon you can get the best type called firestorm which sets many ships around them on fire. The rounds I usually kept in my inventory were: round shot, cold shot, powder keg, and firestorm. I used this tragedy and got to level 60 and got the revenant ram We had some great gunners with a lot of experience.
Also when one ship has the last bit of gold only shoot at it because the other ships don't matter. Hoped this helped and good luck mate

I dunno. I think I could make it. My school is starting back up next week, and I gotta go get ready Friday, so sometime this week would be nice. I'm in the mood to play Cannon Defense, although I'm not the greatest. So sign me in. Las note: I'm pacific time so I'll try to make it an easy compromise.

I will try my hardest to make it. With a little advanced warning I should be able to. Sign me up, and the best stategy I have is as soon as you can use ice, use it and never stop using it. RED

Aye, I'd like to help. Some of my tips is don't buy ANY ammo until Level 10 Navy Cannon, which is when you unlocked Powder Keg ammo. Powder Keg is basically mines, except much more powerful. Another tip is to get the ships that already have treasure in their cargo, that way you can't lose easily. I'm not the BEST gunner, but I am skilled nonetheless. Count me in!

As I said I will help. So aye, I'll help. I really haven't gotten far because I just can't make it. But, when with a fine group of cannoneers, I think I'll do ok. So expect me to be there.

AYE!!!! My strategy is not buy anything until you reach lvl 10, purchase Keg Ammo and use only when necessary before wave 20. Purchase Ice ammo when you open it and use it right away in a line close to where the ships spawn to keep them grouped up. Doing this allows for maximum damage on the most ships possible. The last piece of ammo you need is Firestorm. Anybody that has used this ammo understands its importance and the devestation that it causes. Of all of these ammos, Ice is the most important!! You must constantly lay out ice and by all four cannoneers. I have made it to wave 125 once with a great group of pirates and ice was the key in getting to those higher waves. I look forward to getting together with another fine bunch of pirates and hopefully a revenant ram lays in wait for all those involved. RED

Aye, I would also suggest having a sniper skilled with bullet to shoot down those escaping ships. After wave 65, start using bait shot. At that point, you'd have around 10k bank notes, which is way more then enough. A single bait shot would take out a massive war ship that would have taken several minutes to sink, saving some valueable treasure.

I remember using bomb as round shot instead. i can't remember if it had a cooldown, but i think i switched between bomb, then sell, get round, and keep shooting. bomb hits all ships that are very close to the ship that got hit, and at later levels, ships are often clostered together, making it an ideal choice.
