Is there any scenario in which getting Blasters can be viable?

Like, I rather go with 3 Spitters instead of 1 Blaster.

Blasters have more hp and do more damage per troop slot. They cost more sheep.

One acid/ice/silver/gold dragon could wipe out an army of spitters in short order, blasters would live a little longer.

If im not wrong, from lvl 3 onwards blasters become much better. A lvl 3 blaster has more dmg than 3 lvl 5 spitters already. Blasters have really good damage, and at higher levels they are very useful.
As Valsacar said they survive splash dmg better, as spitters have lower health and can be destroyed by splash dmg easier as a group. At higher levels there are even more splash defenses such as silver and gold dragons, therefore blasters become even more useful.

Level 1/2 blasters are useless. Level 3+ are much better. But, I still use spitters to keep the cost of the army low. Attacking and not making a profit is useless... might as well not log in if i won't make a profit in battle.

I do like level 3+ blasters for troop donations. Blasters and spitters will go after both land and air attackers. Blasters can take them down quick.

I always think of Blasters as upgraded Spitters that get more damage and health while having more costs and space. To me, Blasters can easily replace Spitters at higher levels when room provides while Spitters can help fill in the gaps.

For me, I still use spitters because the build time is much lower (45s for 3 spitters vs 1 blaster).

At end game (all leveled up) your spitters aren't very useful. Blasters are better vs ae attacks, but 70hp spitter vs 150hp blaster when attacking lightning or fire dragons can be useful if you're trying to divert the damage from the towers instead of doing damage to them. 3 spitters or 1 blaster sent vs either tower:
Fire Tower vs 3 Spitters
Round 1: 3x10dps = 30 damage to tower, 1x33dps = 37hp spitter 1
Round 2: 3x10dps = 60 damage to tower, 2x33dps = 4hp spitter 1
Round 3: 3x10dps = 90 damage to tower, 3x33dps = 0hp spitter 1
Round 4: 2x10dps = 110damage to tower, 4x33dps = 37hp spitter 2
Round 5: 2x10dps = 130damage to tower, 5x33dps = 4hp spitter 2
Round 6: 2x10dps = 150damage to tower, 6x33dps = 0hp spitter 2
Round 7: 1x10dps = 160damage to tower, 7x33dps = 37hp spitter 3
Round 8: 1x10dps = 170damage to tower, 8x33dps = 4hp spitter 3
Round 9: 1x10dps = 180damage to tower, 9x33dps = 0hp spitter 3
Fire Tower vs Blaster
Round 1: 1x48dps = 48 damage to tower, 1x33dps = 117hp blaster
Round 2: 2x48dps = 96 damage to tower, 2x33dps = 84hp blaster
Round 3: 3x48dps = 144damage to tower, 3x33dps = 51hp blaster
Round 4: 4x48dps = 192damage to tower, 4x33dps = 18hp blaster
Round 5: 5x48dps = 240damage to tower, 5x33dps = 0hp blaster
Lightning Tower vs 3 Spitters
Round 1: 3x10dps = 30 damage to tower, 1x55dps = 15hp spitter 1
Round 2: 3x10dps = 60 damage to tower, 2x55dps = 0hp spitter 1
Round 3: 2x10dps = 80 damage to tower, 3x55dps = 15hp spitter 2
Round 4: 2x10dps = 100damage to tower, 4x55dps = 0hp spitter 2
Round 5: 1x10dps = 110damage to tower, 5x55dps = 15hp spitter 3
Round 6: 1x10dps = 110damage to tower, 6x55dps = 0hp spitter 3
Lightning Tower vs Blaster
Round 1: 1x48dps = 48 damage to tower, 1x55dps = 95hp blaster
Round 2: 2x48dps = 96 damage to tower, 2x55dps = 40hp blaster
Round 3: 3x48dps = 144damage to tower, 3x55dps = 0hp blaster
So spitters vs fire = 66% the damage of a blaster, but delay for 80% more time. Spitters vs lightning = ~75% the damage of a blaster, but delay for 100% more time. In other words, if they're there to keep the towers busy instead of kill them, spitters are still better. End game battles will all be about beating the clock, so blasters will be the name of the game.
