    In second sector you block camp bbb with 137C 67E, that's going to be a 80 seconds block in about 2% of the cases and a 100 seconds block in about 8% of the cases.

    Consider that taking down the tower will take 50 seconds from the time combat comences, so you have less than 30 seconds to get from wherever your MMA are at once the bbb fight begins to the Dark Castle, enter it and start fighting.

    I don't want to say 'don't do it' but I'd point out it's not the safest block I ever seen.

    Edit: Ohh and I forgot to say very nice guide, you've done a good job again.

    yep, Ive seen a few guides posted on various forums and TSO sites lately that use the sim "rounds" as their pointers rather than take into account the timed "minimum seconds" they actually last + the travel time. Of course, in effect they can work, but they must be made 100% safe.

    I made that mistake myself on a guide on this forum and was helped by experienced players into reviewing and correcting my calculations

    And again, thank you for posting the guide

    cpl of points on the middle block as both configs have the same min time for their atk's
    but then I use an MMA with 60M 100B 40LB 20K ....& that's a 40sec kill

    positioning for the last WT block is a little off....as the Std gen can block whilst the MMA takes out the WT

    Blocks should not be based on rounds but timings of the attacks and the camp falling of battle was won.
    as for travel time, I work on principle of minimum timing on blocks (never the max) plus 3 flags = 10 seconds travel time on top so need get that spot on also and have time for the leader to die and blocks holding long enough.

    But like you I have seen guides thats been based on rounds not timings and had some bad losses so now when I have time I just make my own

    Hi, 1st I want to apologize for taking so long to get back to you I have been testing a lot of blocks for camp BBB ( and wanting to keep to only losing R ) then the Event got in the way. Yes all the above comments are correct, it seems I was not reading the simulator correctly. I have now altered the guide to incorporate the new block. 123 x Cav + 77 x E gives a minimum time of 100 seconds which is enough time. Unfortunately it will do 100 seconds most of the time which means camp BBB will start to go down most of the time, but it will only get about half way when the Tower is defeated.
    akkinadileep your block of 127 x Cav + 73 x E is better than my original block but can still do 80 seconds. Thank you all for your comments.
