Just won the hard badge. My advice - Find a good map and crafting guide. Every time you level up, put 1 point into STR & balance the others. Go the warrior route. Do not swap your pet out. This is a huge game and it'll take a while to finish - but there's not a lot of grinding. Good Luck to all!
What best for me was to use triple cannons on Elite up until the last boss. Reset points, use thunder domes shielded by freeze towers. Never set the fire speed above 4. (any higher you are running out of ammo) The thunderstorm and fuel of war campaigns are not that hard, just tedious.
Hard levels: Make a checkerboard. When you get a match, set to the side, separating horizontal and verticals. Fill in hole with a new piece. Repeat until all possible singles are matched, then do horizontals,then verticals, matching any pieces you see on the way. Brute force, but your eyes will thank you.
Hard badge deck– 5 of each platoon, thief, recruit, guards, mage, pixies, add weapons, add crystals, add bricks, builders, towers, tavern, house, fence. Use the other 5 points however you want and I used platoon as discards. The idea is to build your castle fast Hope this helps someone.
For the hard badge: Ononolaus posted this on 1-12-11. Here's the actual know top scores for each level followed by the number of pieces each one took to get done, going to a total score of 1305.
This made it a lot easier to see where your score could be improved.
For Endurance Badge: Only use Orange-Red; Do not make any towers above grade 5; Start with traps at the entrance and build towers from the bottom right up then the bottom left up. This is from an old forum post. I added a Grade 3 blue at the start of the traps and a purple 6 middle right. By wave 70 something - I got the badge. Hope this helps someone.
