I have tried a few times in different ways to beat Craggy assault and my men keep attacking everything but the lookout so he kills them all, any suggestions on how to beat this level?

I didn't have time to try it out his morning, but I'm pretty sure that you need to research the meteor and direct that at the tower.

Yeah, I launched a meteor at the tower then sent all of my troops in from the north. If memory serves I sent them against the northernmost structure so that they would destroy the structures, then the wall, then the tower - then clean up at their leisure.

This may sound stupid, but is there a way to cause your troops to target specific buildings and structures - or do they just wander to the closest ones?

They wander to closest ones and attack it until something dies (it or them) and then choose a new target. You can also beat this mission by leveling up to ancient age and adding another tent, giving you 40 troops instead of 20 (or doing both).

I have had my bottle of frustration losing battles against other ppl because my F***ing cavemen was hammering stones instead of enemies.
They did not even go where I pointed,bloody hell.

Different troops have different attacking preferences

If you look on info on the troop it often says primary target : anything,some say land and air.

BUT underneath there is more info which I did not know before I researched the chariot,iT specifically says "Focus on defense during the onslaught".
My horse runs automatically for the defense,and the cavemen can do whatever the f they want as long as they help in the end.
The horse works perfect as a tank because of the health.
Was expensive though,but be sure to check out info on each specific troop/spell.

Yesterday I had this going :
You may need 2- 10 battles depending on range of enemy(lvl wise) to rack up say 40 trophies.
If you loose against a higher ranked enemy as I did plenty of times yesterday,you may loose 30-40 trophies in 1 go.
Lost around 300 before I figured out which unit attacked defense.

Im impatient so I attacked whoever I could yesterday trying to get a advantage on other ppl,sure was sweet when you pulled off 20-30 trophies. But I was growing more frustrated everytime I failed cause of these numb heads taking wrong buildings.

Hope you fare better

I researched the meteor, and seem dumb to ask but how do you launch it against the tower? when I go to attack it only shows I can use basic or ranged warrior.

I used 26 grunts, 4 axethrowers, 2 chariots, and a thunderstrike (upgraded meteor). I went all out with these but it wasn't necessary. Just make sure your chariots have some support from the axemen. I started from the bottom left and had the grunts break down the wall and the chariots attacked that tower first. I used two axemen on each side to take out their axemen.

Thanks, built the henge info , now have meteor strike, used it on the tower, stupid ax men just run around attacking everything but the tower , so they all get killed, I tried putting them in lower left and they ran around wall to attack stuff on the outside, I will try getting chariot and hope then they attack wall.

Try it again, Rob. I was able to get it with four axe throwers as back up. Drop them behind your grunts when they start getting attacked by axethrowers or the tower. Chariot will probably also make quick work of it with the artillery support and grunts to take some damage.
