    What would be the best way to stop players from blocking in my TD? I'm making a tower defense like the WC3 "Line Towers" wars game.

    In some LTW they send an anti-block creep after every wave or at timed intervals. If he can't get through your maze gets blown up.
    And some make the creeps attack the towers when they can't get through.

    Would there be anyway that it would automatically sell the tower if it blocks?

    Yes, you just write your own pathfinding system.

    Theres a function somewhere thats something along the lines of "pathing cost between points"; search for it. If it returns 0, you can know that someone is blocking.
