- 2 Duches spawn at 16.67 seconds500f, delay 30~33.33 seconds900f~1,000f.
- 4 Heavenly Hippoes spawn at 16.67 seconds500f, delay 16.67~20 seconds, delay 500f~600f.
- Infinite Gabriels spawn at 16.67 seconds500f, delay 30~50 seconds900f~1,500f.
- When the base reaches 99% HP, 1 Gabriel spawns as the boss with:
Lineup: Dual Erasers, Manic Mohawk, Ramen Cat, Drone Cat, Thaumaturge/Cat Jobs, Golfer Cat/Manic Macho Legs Cat, ICat/ Witch Cat, Cat God The Great, Cyberpunk Cat. If you have a strong LD Uber, it is a good idea to slot it in, because it can help push back the enemy backliners.
Stall the Duches and angels that spawn in the beginning of the level for as long as you comfortably can with your meatshields and thaumaturge, and begin to kill them off with Time Traveler Cat. Spawn Cyberpunk in as soon as you safely can so that you can get a second one faster. After you hit the enemy base, spawn Cat God in. Kill and Control the enemies' push with Drone Cat spam, as well as your anti-red crowd control unit for the Capies. Cat God will help you with this process. Once Cat God reaches his omni-standing range (850), the level is basically won. Keep spamming your meatshields, and start deploying Golfer Cats to hit the enemy base and backliners. If the Dark Emperor Santas can still hit your Golfer Cats, stop deploying them in favor of Drone Cat, as he has a larger standing range. Eventually, Cat God will knock all of the enemy backliners behind their base, making them only able to hit your meatshields. Just keep spamming your units, and you will eventually destroy the enemy base for the easy win.
-BTW this is the first time I've ever made a strat, so please let me know if it works in the comments! It worked for me fine, but I did use cat jobs instead of thaumaturge and I'm not sure if that could mean the difference between a win and a loss.
