Taste of Success is the fourth event stage in the game where the player can receive a large amount of XP upon completing. Like other XP stages, it consists almost entirely of Black enemies.
The level starts with several Doge Darks, Gory Blacks and Shadow Boxer Ks spawning. Once the player hits the enemy base, Director Kurosawah and Razorback spawn with the aforementioned peons alongside Tackeys and Dark Otters. After 33.3 seconds, a second Razorback will spawn, and a third Razorback appears after another 33.3 seconds.
Kasa Jizo, though a helpful addition, cannot win this battle alone. Almost mandatory is Bombercat, the True Form of Flower Cat. Bombercat is the iCat of anti-Black, with area attacks and a 100% chance of freeze.
After the first time you beat the level, if you are confident in your strategy, bring a Treasure Radar and Cat Jobs. With those two items and Prof. Cat Jobs thrown in, you can get around 3 MILLION XP.
Strategy 1 by HushT (no Kasa Jizo)
Battle Items: Rich Cat (optional)
Lineup : 3-4 meatshields. I used Mohawk Cat, Crazed Cat, Crazed Wall Cat and Jiangshi Cat. You then want to use Bombercat (necessary), Ring Girl Cat, Crazed Dragon, A. Bahamut, and then any massive damage Ubers or other cats you want to put in. I used Immortal Yukimura and Shining Amaterasu. A "Freeze Effect Up" Combo is recommended to replace one of your Ubers and to bring you down to only 2 meatshields.
You want to start off the battle by stalling and building up your money, do this by spamming meatshields, Bombercat and Ring Girl Cat.
Start spawning your damage dealers and try to get a good stack of Crazed Dragon and Ring Girl. Then spawn your Ubers to do massive damage, but only if you can get the Razorbacks perma-frozen. A. Bahamut will also do a great deal of damage. If the Tackeys spawn, they will most likely kill your ubers unless you can push forward/ knock them back enough. This is where cats like Immortal Yukimura and A. Bahamut can come into play.
This works for me about 75% of the time, but this is because my cats are underleveled and I am only at a User Rank of 2100. If you are better at this game than me, or have better cats than this strategy should work beautifully without Kasa Jizo.
Strategy 2 (super ubercarry, no jizo) by Mucs
The main threat is the three Razorbacks, so immediately freeze them with Bombercat. You cannot beat this stage without him! If permafrozen, try to knockback them 1 by 1 so nobody walks into Kurosawah's range. Once the Razorbacks are killed, it should become fairly easy to win.
Row 1: Manic Mohawk (20), Manic Eraser (30), Mohawk Cat, Eraser Cat, Bombercat (20)
Row 2: Manic Macho Legs (20, though higher levels result in a higher win rate)
battle items: Cat Jobs (extra XP), Rich Cat (if you’re using a cat CPU), Cat CPU (optional), DO NOT BRING A SNIPER
The point of this strategy is to abuse the enemy limit, using Manic Macho Legs waves to kill Kurosawah before the Tackeys come out. Although you don’t need to hypermax any of these units, you may require a few retries to get your Bombercats lined up to permafreeze the first Razorback. If at any point your Bombercats die and are unable to refreeze the Razorbacks, you will have to pause, shut off the app and try again
Start the level by using Bombercats to freeze the doge darks and use an MM Legs to kill them. Then just keep spamming everything! If you’re Bombercat line up properly and permafreeze the Razorback, you’ve won! All you need to do is to keep on spamming meatshields, Bombercats and MM Legs until you see a victory screen. There’s is the rare occasion where he bomber stack dies, or the Tackeys come out early, but most of the time it works perfectly
This strategy can be further enhanced by adding Warlock and Pierre (first form preferred) or Bunny and Canard (SECOND FORM ONLY) to your lineup, as they will not kill the razorbacks, allowing you to slowly stack them without any cash drain, so that when you do kill the Razorbacks Kurosawah, you won’t die to any tackeys that decide to show up, as they will quickly demolish the base.
If you are doing this strategy without a cat CPU, I do recommend that you bring Awakened Bahamut as he can help to destroy both the razorbacks and the base after Kurosawah has been shockwaves to death, preventing your own demise from tackeys.
Of course, Professor cat Jobs is always welcome for the extra XP gain
- This is the first merciless stage in Battle Cats, the second is part of the Evangelion Collaboration.
- Once you beat the stage once, it disappears completely, you need to wait for it to appear again to beat it once more. It is currently one of the only stages that does that, the others being Steel Visage, and the Merciless XP stage that appears with the Catamin stages
