    Prepare for the grind.

    Each level (except for the first level) requires 100xp * current level. So to go from level 12 to level 13 requires 1300xp. (Going from level 1 to level 2 requires only 30xp.) This requires a total of 43,430xp.

    You get experience by playing games. A multiplayer match earns 25xp (always). For normal games, you get xp for the following items:
    * Stars: 0 = 5xp, 1 = 9xp, 2 = 12xp, 3 = 20xp
    * Boost monster: Common = 3, Rare = 7, Legendary = 15, Mythical = 20
    * Evolved monsters: Common = 1, Rare = 3, Legendary = 6, Mythical = 10
    * 5xp bonus for evolving a monster for the first time.

    Hence, a typical game when you're grinding will earn 3 stars evolving a legendary monster using a rare boost monster earns 33xp (20 + 7 + 6).

    If you're grinding, you'll want to use the last areas of the worlds (where you are guaranteed a legendary monster). Each game will take about 2 minutes (1 minute for the game; 30sec for the ad to let you replay; and 30sec for other screnes). That's 6 minutes per 100xp or about 1 hour per 1000xp.

    Alternatively, you can grind on the early levels in a wave. You earn slightly less xp per round (since you're going to be evolving a common or uncommon monster instead of a legendary) but you don't have to sit through the adds. [Idea courtesy of Chris8875.]

    Playing multiplayer matches also has the advantage of not actually having to play the round as you get 25xp no matter what your score. However, sometimes MP matches take a long time to start or don't work at all.

    (I've earned almost every other achievement by the time I reached level 12 with about 8000 total xp. That still leaves about 35,000xp left to go or about 35hours.)

    Chris8875I'm actually now using a hybrid method on the boosting.

    I start by using Meemo on the higher 4-5 levels of each world, playing each once and earning anything from 33 to 41 xp each time.

    Then I drop to using Jumper (or, in some cases, no boost monster at all) and start doing the lower 4-5 levels of each world, earning 25 or so xp each time. Then I can go back and do these levels again without having to watch ads to allow for replays.

    The benefit is that you get through the games quickly and without watching any ads across all the levels - maximising the time spent playing and earning xp.

    jumpman174I've been using the multiplayer for xp, but for the last couple weeks, after my first match, it just sits on processing and I have to close the app, and reopen it to get another game in. Then it stops working again after the first multiplayer game. Anyone else having this problem?

    SbN SpacefishSince I don't have the double coin upgrade I can't keep using Meemo without losing money. But using Jumper to grind the last level of forest yields less exp. So instead I have been using the Rare Monster Rosebud. That one has one stray angel and two sugar bombs, which in combination nearly clear the entire field. In average I can get a little more than the 2.8 mil required to have him pay for himself (2800 each round, which is much better than the 4200 Meemo uses.) I'd still use Meemo if I were going for records.

    I have been boosting my levels using the multiplayer system. You get 25 xp per match just for playing one. Your score dose not effect how much experience, so you can work on matches while doing other things. Personally I have been boosting Seriously at the same time as I have been working on this achievement.

    All I do is set up either a rematch with someone I randomly played with previously. You will get set up in a match quicker than watching a commercial and you might be helping someone else out. Because your score dose not matter I just make a match or two and ignore the rest of the match. This helps boost their wins and sometimes you get a win as well. With luck, you will find people who complete their rematch quickly and send you one back or you can re challenge them after they complete the previous challenge.

    If there is not anybody available, I search for a new random player and start a fresh challenge.

    EmperoxGraylandYup, this is how I did it. Works like a charm. Once you've gotten the "win against 50 (or 100?) random opponents" achievement, you'll have plenty of entries in your history to rematch against.

    Tip: If your list of outstanding games gets (very) large, you can simply dismiss the current games using the red "X", without impacting the XP you got from the game. This makes the page load a little quicker, and you don't have to scroll down very far to see your finished games.
