  • Why is ice so bad?

    it has the same small range but has almost 0 pierce and arctic wind has also a small range for the same prices as in btd5. What happened

    edit: and btd6 keeps crashing on iPhone 6. I don’t know what keeps causing it though it happens at different times.
    I saw a button that said edit post signature so I did.

    I forgot I have a Youtube channel: [URL="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ0iUEapYFww_A1N9cIWF_g"]https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ0...Fww_A1N9cIWF_g[/URL]

    Cryo cannon is where it's at

    I haven't had any crashes (on release build) on iPhone 6 so if you can get more details about when it happens that would be great
    A screen shot when you reload the save could help to see what towers and round you were on.

      I agree that the Cryo Cannon is definitely the best. But right now the other two paths seem almost unusable because of the limited range.

      Just as a general note (not necessarily BTD6 related but), sometimes other apps or prompts from the operating system itself can cause an app you're currently using to crash.

        I think it is cool that the base tower can be used as a starting tower. It has built in snap fresze.

          Ice is just overly expensive. I'm trying to get an ice + juggernaut build online right now and am struggling with the cost. I think they made it UP because getting money was so easy in btd5 that you didn't even need glue. Glue seems a lot better than ice in this game though.

            it should not be like that, each path should have a purpose and not feeling useless

            a buff idea for the arctic wind path if you don't want to increase the frozen limit. you could increase the slow down factor

            i don't know if is a bug but i cant see shards flying off the bloons in the ice shard upgrade

              it’s really not just the range, an arctic wind under a 2-3 village even with a glue gunner will not defend more than about 10 regrow zebras or about 5 regrow ceramics wheras in btd5 those 3 towers could defend almost infinite amounts of non-moab-bloons.

              also arctic, glue and spiked balls spactory under 2-3 village defend no more than 2 moabs when previously they’d defend a whole bfb.

              2-2 ice in btd5 also had a lot of popping-power although being slow, now no 2nd tier ice seems to do that. it’s really not good in any game stage which is a shame. ability no longer slows moab-class bloons so even that is pretty much useless.

              generally, everything’s been nerfed but ice has been hit extremely hard.

                Some numbers: 0-0-0 through 3-x-x or x-3-x can freeze 30 bloons per shot. x-x-3 can freeze 20 (although it shoots faster). I haven't tested the 4th tiers or above

                This is RIDICULOUS. Ice is no longer a viable lategame tower. Only use I can see is freezing ceramics straight of the MOAB, but that still doesn't help with the junk that comes out.

                  Cryo cannon is like 90 times worse than glue even though it's cool. Even with tier 5s. like 3 ninja saboteurs is better than a tier 5 cryo cannon and costs less

                  Only thing ice offers that's exclusivelly good is 0/3/0 and that's overpriced

                      Even 0/3/0 is reduced to a support tower. The TBO will thank the AW when it is released. The nerf squad got what they wished. As for me, now is the ideal time to try a new balance.

                          The limited range is how the ice tower should be. It is meant to be a short-range tower. In BTD5, arctic wind was OP because it was slowing far too many bloons.
                          I needed a new signature and profile picture because the bloonchipper is not in the game anymore. The new tower:

                          It’s a corrosive glue gunning layer stripping road spiking buff giving MOAB exploding transforming bloon shrinking tower dependent fairly cheap banana farm. It's... The Alchemist!

                          RIP Bloonchipper. You were a good tower

                            The problem is that ice towers in BTD5 & BMC was completely and utterly brokenly OP. I agree, artic wind both needs a range increase and a pierce buff, and the general ice tower needs a slight range buff, but it can't be like it was in BTD5 & BMC because it would make ice almost as broken as the unupdated unnerfed prema-spike
