# STUPID CODE WONT WORK(sowing fire help)

My hero keeps running straight into the traps but i did everything right

``````// Goal: build three rows of nine fire-traps.

// Returns "retreat", "attack", "start-next-trap-column", or "build-next-trap-in-column"
function chooseStrategy() {
var enemies = hero.findEnemies();

// If there are overwhelming ogre forces, return the "retreat" strategy.
if(enemies.length > 20) {
return "retreat";
}
// If there are some ogres, return the "attack" strategy.
if (enemies.length > 0) {
return "attack"
}

// Use x % 9 === 0 to see if x is divisible by 9.
// Use this.built.length to see how many traps you have built.
// If you have finished a column of 9 traps, return "start-next-trap-column"
if (hero.built.length % 9 === 0) {
return "start-next-trap-column"
}
// Otherwise, return "build-next-trap-in-column"
else {
return "build-next-trap-in-column";
}
}

var trapsInColumn = 9;
var startX = 40;
var columnX = startX;

// Build the next trap in a column in the correct place.
function buildNextTrapInColumn(columnX,numTraps) {
// Change newY to use % to wrap around and only build trapsInColumn (9) traps per column
var newY = 7 * (numTraps & trapsInColumn) + 10; // âˆ† Change this to use % 9!
if (hero.pos.y < newY) {
hero.move({"x": columnX - 5, "y": newY});
} else {
buildTrap(columnX,newY);
}
}

// Start a new column of traps.
function startNextTrapColumn(columnX, numTraps) {
var newX = startX - (Math.floor(numTraps / trapsInColumn) * 6);
if (hero.pos.y > 10) {
hero.move({"x": newX - 5, "y": 10});
return columnX;
} else {
buildTrap(newX,10);
return newX;
}
}

function buildTrap(x, y) {
hero.buildXY("fire-trap", x, y);
}

// Have your griffin riders fend off the attackers.
var friends = hero.findFriends();

for(var i = 0; i < friends.length;i++) {
