    Absolute Zero in the game is still really trash.
    If I can complete any Daily Challenge NAPS, then it should be extremely easy to complete.


    • #3
      It has a pretty significantly long duration and 300 pierce now, I wouldn't call it garbage.

        The ability still doesn't seem to be really good though. I haven't actually tried it in this game, but I have the feeling that others say it's trash.

          Oooo Striker Jones buffs. Gimme.


          • #6
            Does that mean that now Jones won't struggle at killing a single Moab?

              The app store shows the update, but it doesn't let me update the app. I have opened the app, and it says v1.8.773
              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


              • #8
                Thank you thank you so so much NK!!!!!!!!

                Not sure if the perma spike nerf will be enough, but we'll see. As for super mines, were they buffed at all (maybe a price decrease)?

                  Refresh the App Store. Pull the update screen of the App Store as high as you can, and then it'll refresh the updates.

                    If the store already shows the update, that probably won't fix it.

                    Also, I've been having a similar problem. If I tap the update button, it turns into a circle for a second and then cancels itself and turns back into the update button.

                      Overall, the buffs are kind of eh to me. I like a bunch of buffs there, but some of the nerfs there are pretty disappointing, not as good types of nerfs as I expected. There needs improvements though, because there are a ton of upgrades that need serious buffs, as well as some that need some buff or nerf here and there. My list is the following, in order of tower:

                      Dart Monkey:
                      • Spike-O-Pult should increase pierce to 30 to 22. Still a rather weak tower for what you buy. Similar story to why the Spike-O-Pult in Battles was buffed to 40 pops.

                      Bomb Shooter:
                      • Bomb Blitz should also have always tertiary clusters. The Bomb Blitz ability sounds cool, with full utter destruction of all bloons below ZOMG, but still rather weak overall. The ability does helpful in later-game, but it's still just a bit too weak overall for the price. Not very urgent, but I may as well add it in.

                      Ice Monkey:
                      • Cryo Cannon should cost is $1350. $2000 is still too expensive for an upgrade that doesn't really have much popping power or ice explosive coverage. It's like a measly 0/0/0 Bomb Shooter explosion. Perhaps also make Enhanced Freeze alter the Cryo Cannon to add a Bigger Bombs effect.
                      • Absolute Zero freezes bloons including MOAB-class for longer. Still too expensive for its value.

                      Heli Pilot:
                      • Apache should cost $17500 or Apache missiles pop Blacks and Zebras. Horribly unreliable when compared to Spectre, which can pop Blacks and Zebras pretty fine, and even DDTs. Apache sucks at both unless expensive MIB added.

                      Super Monkey:
                      • Sun Temple and True Sun God should now have camo detection if any camo detecting tower with price at $1000 or higher is sacrificed. Because it sucks much against DDTs without Radar Scanner.

                      • Permanent Brew should cost $55,000 instead of $80,000. Still filthily expensive and not worthwhile unless there's tonnes of powerful towers around him, but by the time he is affordable, you'd get better worthwhile towers than that.

                      Spike Factory:
                      • Super Mines needs any of the following:
                        • Price drop to $100,000. Really expensive for something that sucks heckloads against DDTs or even normal Blacks and Zebras.
                        • Make explosions pop Blacks/Zebras/DDTs. Similar reason, and I'll still shell out $175,000 for this upgrade if it can do that, and plus those explosions are like The Big One, which I'd totally expect to pop Blacks/Zebras.
                        • Infinite popping power from explosions. Compensating lack of popping power of Blacks/Zebras/DDTs could be compensated with this, and why shouldn't it have infinite popping power if its description says "wipe out"?
                        • Removal of the speed nerf. Again, similar story to all of the above. And that will also make the $175,000 more affordable.
                      • Perma-Spike returns its normal speed but with the Path 2 upgrades having decreased effect. It is now a lot less ridiculously powerful, but it's now on the path of being a bit weak, especially because those Path 2 upgrades are just a bit too worthwhile compared to the Path 1 upgrades.
                      • Carpet of Spikes should have at least one of the following:
                        • Double the spikes in the spike carpet before the round starts. It's a carpet of spikes, so it should be nice and thick, right?
                        • Have that carpet of spikes work indefinitely until they are popped. You don't have more than one Carpet of Spikes, so why can't those spikes be lasting for the entire round?
                        • Make an automatic Spike Storm every 30 seconds after the round starts. It'd help late-game a bunch, especially against DDTs if White Hot Spikes is bought.

                      Monkey Village:
                      • Monkey City instead of free Dart Monkeys per round should discount also Tier-4 and Tier-5 upgrades, but at the cost of the increased price of $12000-$16000. These wouldn't really do much to the saving of Tier-4 and Tier-5 upgrades, but it's still useful overall. Plus, you'll get the nice Monkey Town bonus too. And nobody SIMPLY buys this upgrade straight from Monkey Commerce, with a heft of $13000 for something that will only save a small amount of money, especially when you'd only really get the current Monkey City by past Round 40.

                      If I can complete any Daily Challenge NAPS, then it should be extremely easy to complete.

                        FYI Carpet of spikes does last until the end of the round.
                        Lotta people don't seem to realize this

                      Tested out Captain Churchill on firing range, and I think I've found my new favorite hero!


                      • #13
                        Churchills pretty cool, expensive but well worth it for this powerhouse of a hero.
                        Loving the Prince of Darkness. Acts like a Bottom Path 5th tier Druid where the more it attacks, the more Necromanced bloons show up. The new Necromanced MOABS and BFBs have amazing art.
                        Super Mines buff? 🧐
                        Finally can do proper testing now that I can toggle Monkey Knowledge off and on.
                        Perma-Spike nerf, pretty cool and a good baby step to test out the waters.
                        Finally Middle Path 4+ tiers will have a useful ability.
                        The new effect that the Elite Sniper has is that it applies a buff to attack speed on all Snipers on the map. Pretty useful if combined with the Cripple Moab and some MAIM Moab’s.

                          Wow, well done NK. All these changes are great! Nice to see you've listened to your fans and made the game even more amazing. Can't wait to see what the future holds

                            Yo the ice tower buff to the x-x-3 isn’t working properly. It’s still the measly 30, even less than a base ice monkey.
