"I'm Dr.T, the pre-eminent evil genius of our time! Obviously, I'm also a lot smarter than you."
Dr. T is the mad scientist in charge of the Blackguard's Artifact Weaponization Project. Most of the time he is occupied conducting evil experiments, but now and then he invades the Archipelago to enslave innocent islanders.
Dr. T is an event that occurs four times every seven days, occurring twice at a Tropical base and twice at a Volcano base.
This event is enabled once you defeat his first base, which is level 10. Thereafter, the tropical Dr. T challenge will appear on the island of the defeated base every Tuesday and Saturday. Dr. T's volcano challenge will be unlocked upon the defeat of his volcano base, which is level 20. Dr. T's volcano challenge will appear every Wednesday and Sunday.
Dr. T bases are comprised of an assortment of NPC buildings, Mines, Boom Mines, Shock Mines, Statues, and defenses at various levels, but all defenses used are the same as those available to players; the only difference is that there is no limit to the amount of a particular defense to appear. In the case of Statues, up to two ice Statues with unlimited increments can appear on each Dr. T base: one increases building health, the other increases defensive building damage. This is because other elements of Statues make no sense in NPC bases, and multiple statues of each type will waste space.
The Ice Statues start appearing on Stage 3 in both events to make it harder.
The base layouts in the event change every event but are the same for everyone.
If you successfully beat a stage of the Dr. T event, an upgraded Dr. T base will appear immediately after. The new stage provides an increased level of difficulty by having a larger total number of Defensive Buildings, higher levels of defensive buildings, and/or stronger Ice Statues.
Unlike the defeat of a Resource Base, a new stage is not necessarily a direct upgrade of the previous stage. For example, it's possible that in the same event, stage 2 has three Boom Cannons but stage 3 has only one.
The Dr. T island known as Tropical Base appears every three days and starts at level 8 and progressively increases in difficulty, making it an easier event for lower level players. This event is known colloquially as Tropical Dr. T.
The Dr. T island known as Volcano Base appears every three days and starts at level 20 and progressively increases in difficulty from there. This event has many more buildings which makes it better for obtaining lots of Dark Power Stones. This event is known colloquially as Volcano Dr. T.
Dr. T spawns 4 times in every 7 day event cycle, and Volcano Dr. T always follows Tropical Dr. T. See the event cycle here.
Dr. T will appear at 6 a.m. for your time zone and will disappear 21 hours after he appears (at 3 a.m.), if you do not defeat him before then. Note that Daylight Saving Time will affect Dr. T event times.
Once Stage 7 is beaten or the 21 hours are over, the Dr. T event is complete until the next event. Dr. T bases reset after every event. For example, if in one event you reached stage 3 of the event within the 21-hour period, you will always be back to stage 1 for the following event.
Dr. T will launch the Mega Crab special event for all players HQ7 and higher every month.
"I'm Dr.T, the pre-eminent evil genius of our time! Obviously, I'm also a lot smarter than you." - When the player first discovers the level 10 Island of Dr. T.
"You may think you have won, but I have a surprise waiting for you. Oh yes I do! I'm really quite crazy! Crazy for turrets, and turtles. But smart! Smarter than you!" - After defeating the level 10 Island of Dr. T.
"Welcome to my Volcano Island, where everything is organic! Muhahahaha! Organic!" - When the player first uncovers the level 20 Dr. T Volcano Island.
"Beat me? You're more likely to chop down the mightiest tree in the forest with a herring! Just you wait! You have no idea how crazy it's going to get here in the Jungle of Dr.T!" - When the player defeats the level 20 Dr. T Volcano Island.
"Welcome to my experiment on self-replicating smart weapons!" - After the player destroys the first base of the Tropical Dr. T event.
"This volcano may be dormant, but my Turrets spit fire at your puny troops!" - After the player destroys the first base of the Volcano Dr. T event.
"You beat me this time, but I'll be back! The forecast for this week is... fire and steel!" - After the player defeats the final stage of the Tropical Dr. T event.
"The forecast for this week is... hot lead!" - After the player defeats the final stage of the Volcano Dr. T event.
"Greetings! The greatest villain of them all returns again... with a remastered version of my most horrifying creation yet. No need to get... crabby; There are no trophies in sight for you; My MEGA CRAB will make sure of that!" - When the Mega Crab event starts.
When a stage of the Mega Crab event is defeated, one of the following quotes appears:
"Don't get too excited. This outcome was expected."
"You just got lucky. Enjoy it while you can."
"I think I need to turn some knobs to increase the amount of evil."
"My minions need some mutagen. I think they're a little under the weather."
"Enough with the distractions. I see what you're trying to do. It's not going to work."
"You're just doing this for the trophies, aren't you?"
"Stop blowing everything up! My cleaning costs are through the roof!"
"What would it take to make you go away forever?"
"Why don't you go attack Lt. Grumpy instead?"
"AT LEAST I HAVE GIANT PURPLE PINCERS!"
"You are slowly making me angry. Is that what you want?"
"I need those mutagen vats for my experiments! Stop destroying everything!"
"Would you stop if I told you the vats are full of sandwiches?"
"How can my horoscope be so wrong? I'm supposed to experience glorious victory!"
"I thought I really got it right this time. Drats!"
You do not gain any Victory Points for successfully defeating a Dr. T base.
Although Dr. T's invasion takes away one of your Freed Villages and affects your chances of getting new Invasions, he does not take a Victory Point when he arrives, nor will he give one back when he leaves or is defeated.
^a is your Attack Cost. It is added to your Gold reward, so it is also increased by Resource Reward Statues. ^^Dr. T's HQ has guaranteed Power Stone drops when destroyed, and you have additional chances to get more Power Stones from the usual chance, which is explained on the Power Stone page.
