    I think you can't count (mission 12, not 11). I also think this mission is a piss poor design.

    Advice for trials:
    1. Bust out those nerfed interrupt weapons to keep enemy bruisers at bay.
    2. Use zombie spawns in your favor.
    3. Bring your own bruiser along (omg, a use for bruisers?!). Freemen can't dodge, so you can keep on stunning them and fighting the good fight. Accompany your Bruiser with an Assault or Hunter for crowd control when walker waves spawn.

    @JayZ That only works if you can get past the hard trial with Rick and Michone and level 6 weapons. Whether or not you finish all depends on luck with the dodge and critical attack RNG results. There is no strategy involved since the first bruiser attacks Michone even if you put Rick out in front. The first round he stuns Rick and then when Michone attacks he switches to her. It also takes 4 hits to kill that first bruiser and sometimes 5 so that when he is dead, Michone has half a red health bar and is bleeding when the spawn comes out. Rick can only kill one or at most 2 walkers so Michone either attacks without stopping the bleed or she is swarmed on the next turn.

    @Marcus6253 keep trying the hard mission. It can be completed.

    I agree that it seems to take a fair bit of luck to beat it with level 10 Rick and Michonne. However, it's only 1 gas per shot with no hospital time.

    I got it on my second go by running past the last spawn (level 13s... no thanks) while the last freeman was getting killed by the tank and his buddies. Michonne got caught in a struggle by a level 11 walker on the last turn, but luckily Rick killed it in one shot so she could join him on the exit.

    Use overwatch, get the walkers and freemen fighting each other, and know when to run like hell instead of staying and fighting. Oh, and get lucky.

    Now that I got revenge by beating the crap out of those level 18 freemen with my own level 20s, I'm hating the cooldown. I just want to keep going.

    Can we merge the million separate discussion threads for this week's trial? It's hard to keep up with the different discussions. People keep asking the same questions and getting the same answers in different threads.

    Just finished the 3rd installment using our own survivors and noticed the bruiser was in the back now. Not sure if the bruiser appearance is "random" or not; the 2nd one of the "michonne/rick" was tough but once I got past that (via the skin of my teeth) the other's aren't too hard considering interrupt on my shooter and spread on my assault trumps none on the practice michonne and rick.

    Something seriously wrong with this mission. You're lucky if you get far enough to even unlock it. When you do. It freezes up. The only way I could unfreeze was to take a casualty. Now I either have to spend gold to retry or wait to heal.

    This episode/ trial is trash. It glitches, the freemen seem to have been on steroids, and it would seem like luck is the only way to get through unscathed.

    if you need visual help on how I did Hard mode I just posted it on my channel, can even be easier if you dodge some of the attacks which my guys didn't do much lol

    You guys know from the completion stats that you totally screwed the pooch on difficulty, right? I've done every challenge to completion thus far and can't get past the second part to even unlock the final five.

    here is the best strategy so far

    I can't even do this with my own survivors on the third mission so I give up

    You really shouldn't struggle at all if you can use your own survivors.

    Thank God that's over!

    Did anyone else notice the bruisers ignoring stun from assault charge? I shot one and stun appeared over his head right before he ran up and stunned me.

    In every video I have seen by content creators showing how to pass the hard level using the provided survivors I have seen freemen get into struggle with the spawned walkers, I have seen critical shots from Rick or Michone on a freemen survivor to reduce the number of hits it takes, etc. Basically, it all comes down to luck. I have yet to see a single strategy that would work regardless of the RNG since they all rely on a little luck somewhere.

    What is most frustrating is that I have to pass this level using survivors I would never use with equipment I would never select to complete a mission that is stacked against me. In fact once I passed it after 12 attempts and getting the right luck it was trivial for my survivors. The freemen didn't even get a chance to hit me because of interrupt.

    Finally... took ages to get past hard mode. You definitely need luck on your side on the hard mode B)

    My breakthrough was to block the scout spawn with Rick. That reduces the need for luck considerably.

    Briefly, atack the first bruiser actively. Don't use Overwatch. Stand in the NW corner to prevent the 2 walkers from spawning. Let the 2nd bruiser attack the bottom walkers. Keep Michonne out of the fray until after Rick already shot the 2nd bruiser once. After killing the 2nd bruiser, open the car with Michonne while Rick blocks the scout spawn. Run for the exit, avoiding the fatty.

    I've done this twice to check the strategy, so it works without much need for luck.

    Anyone else notice that on easy we have lvl 15 Michonne and Rick but in hard we have 10? I have to wonder if that was a mixup or if they really wanted to perturb us.

    I love this mission and how it keeps that adrenaline pumping


    @Teeceezy

    Please let all future season missions be challenging like this one!

    Challenging is always much more fun than taking the easy way out.
