I cannot thank you enough. Ive gone from 8-2 to 8-9 in two days, and everything due to your drop points. I play with the timing of the mages alittle bit more (e.g delaying GA/SS) due to my lack of santa and vlad (also no SM). Kudos for your work, ;D
Can I suggest an alternate drop spot for 8-2? I tried it 3 times your way, and lost every single time, couldn't even 1 flame it(which is unsual because if it wasn't for your guides, I wouldn't even be at 8-2). So I instead dropped at the bottom to the right of the Town Hall, and I ended up 3-flaming it. There don't appear to be any bombs there, so you can even wait on dropping Frenzy/GA until you break through the wall and start in on the towers. I'm not sure why switching to the right side made such a difference, but whatever the reason, it worked.
I might run it a time or two again later just to see if I can replicate it, or if it was a fluke, and then I'll post back up with results.
