    • The adventures Apple Thief, Pirate In Peril, and Winter is Coming must now be completed on Normal difficulty before the harder difficulties are unlocked. Later adventures do not have this restriction.
    • Animation performance improvements - animations will now switch to a more efficient system when there is a lot of objects on screen.
    • Added support for future events

    I love the balance changes! Keep it up! I do have some suggestions:

    1. After reaching the 30 orb limit in a map, have higher tier orbs that would have dropped, bump out lower tier orbs instead of just turning them into in game cash or lives

    2. Make juggernaut Max be allowed to use the stone of ancient knowledge trinket that's exclusive to Max.

    3. Allow a freeplay option past round 75 so we can test our towers actual strength outside of the random down sides of the martian games.

    4. Buff the allies of warrior pb to do more damage. She's otherwise not really viable

    5. Add an additional bonus to the royal medal for heroic bravery trinket (it's the same rarity as the power ring of damage, but only awards the damage if in range of pb. Making it just worse)

    6. the Trident trinket only giving 4 pierce (a kind of underwhelming stat to begin with) and nothing else should either be bumped down to rare quality, or buffed in some other way.

    7. Beauteous Wings is the only item in the game that still gives a % based range increase that was normalized to flat ranges a few patches ago.

    8. The Brain Food trinket only gives upgrade costs a 5% discount and is the same rarity as Magic Spanner which gives upgrades AND placement a 5% discount (something seems unequal here). Side note: Mind Games has a similar effect, giving upgrades (not placement) a 5% discount, however, requires to be near a female character. But it does make allies 5% cheaper so it has a unique quality in that so I don't think it's as necessary to change.

    9. Black Bow Tie is the Male equivalent to the Cursed Ice Ring, however, is rare quality and the ice ring is super rare quality. The black bow tie gives 2 more range than the cursed ice ring, although doesn't give its bonuses to a specific character like the ice ring does. I don't feel like -2 range but also being able to benefit 1 specific character constitutes an entire rarity level over the black bow tie.

    10. Pink Sweater and Protection Gem both are the same rarity and do the exact same thing (protect from all negative effects. However, pink sweater is exclusive to Finn and Protection Gem is not.

    11. Pirate Hat and Power Ring of Pierce both are the same rarity and do the same thing, however pirate hat gives an extra 2 pierce to captain cassie. Making it just better.

    12. Not sure what rarity the martian items are in regards to the other rarity tiers, but the Martian Tracking Device has the exact same effect and properties as the epic tier Glasses of Nerdicon, but just 1 less range. Not sure if intended to copy this item but thought I'd point it out anyway.
