    I'm actually really disappointed that they made Wave 666 easier. It felt like an old school challenge to me--beating a SNES game with 5 lives, no continues, that sort of thing. Ugh

    It should had been so hard that beating it is impossible because the devs didn't program an ending, and add 999 tanks so that whoever manages to win is severely dissapointed.

    Old school games I tell you ;)

    Tanks are incredibly boring to fight. Why would you have a round with 1000 of them?

    The catch: they each have only 1 health.

    Tanks are dull, but can make for cool gameplay when combined with spyswarm. I wonder if a "tons of tanks and tons of spies" wave would work in conventional mvm.

    So, I thought the part about Merasmus "leveling up" just meant they made it so that if you defeat him you have to fight a more powerful version next time, like with Monoculous... but it looks like it means they actually just straight-up doubled his health, because every server I've been on since this update we've only gotten him down to about half health.

    Well, it didn't seem like they doubled his health, with some organisation we managed to defeat lvl3 and almost kill lvl 4.
