Dungeon Defenders II game Status:
But the point is that progressing for lower end ppl has become very very slow or to a halt.

the point is the sharks have ruined this game imo.
The first 2 waves of any map should only need bare bones stuff. Usually you can get 2 characters worth of stuff out in the time limit. Usually I get out 1 or 2 harpoons per lane and then swap over to my EV and get the buff beams, walls, reflectors out. I usually run genie on my EV and stay on her during the save maxxing out my mana during the first wave. After that wave, I can throw up the auras and traps during the next build phase (I don't bother with the chests this wave as I'm already mana maxed). Then swap back to my squire and push the finishing touches and upgrade. The timer is RARELY an issue.

Those stats are easily obtainable from doing Mosterfests and upgrading gear to level 40-50. I RARELY have an issue with sharken using Auras/traps outside my walls. Again stop relying on the Almightly Harpoon, its not the end all be all tower anymore.
This is totally incorrect. With the sort of gear that I (or you) have now it can be muscled through like it was on normal. But it seems like you've been it that position too long to remember progression through it (either that, or you got boosted or bought gear from shops). When I first played through nightmare campaign it was co-op with a friend, we had slightly above entry-level mythic and every map was a challenge. This was pre-sharken so I assume there are a few more tactics that now need to be learned for people with THE APPROPRIATE LEVEL GEAR FOR THE CONTENT.

I started on deeper well and payed attention to where things were. I had a couple harpoons in, I had ensnare auras from my monk who is my weakest character.
I was careful to not put a wall on any straight path where a sharken would see it from far away. Only just after turns. It was mostly just an additional slow down and sharken bait.
With a few proton beams for the damage, I went at it. No sharken attacks bothered me. What actually ended up killing me were the damned spiders actually. I thought I had successfully double covered my harpoons so that spiders would get shot, but it didn't seem to matter. On several waves, the spiders start coming down and the harpoons were instantly webbed before any harpoons even had a chance to fire at them.
The kicker was seeing what looked like a spider web while it leaped at me. Maybe there were other things going on, but it was a real pain to deal with the spiders. Not the djinn or the sharken. Hopefully it's just a matter of shifting a few towers around to better target the spiders.
I haven't hit other maps yet, I want to do them in order, but I am betting, except for a few, the Sharken won't get a good chance to charge because there are corners on every map.
I didnt get boosted or buy gear from other shops and the only stat on my tower builder above 1k is damage and i had solo'd every campaign map. I aslo strated doing nm es to get mythics to get gear doin the first 2 waves cause my builders gear wasnt great and dps was a better option. I layed down a few traps for the mobs to run thru and dps'd everything. I think i know more about progression in this game then you maybe believe.

I like to use the app more often.
But still it's a game of skittles with the sharks using the app.
well you proved you don't play nm survival at all

And before you start saying I have good gear, no I don't.
If your traps and auras are in the right place, then sharken aren't any bother. Careful placement makes them irrelevant. Late stage survival will always be about ogres and ninjas (and fish wyverns).
