    Wow, looks amazing.

    FYI your daily challenge link is to the suggestions thread - I think it should be the entire forum?

      Has it released?

        Aww man. I loved seeing Unstable Concoction wreck DDTs from BADs. But I guess it’s not that OP now.
        If I can complete any Daily Challenge NAPS, then it should be extremely easy to complete.

          what does exactly ''there can only be one''


          • #8
            What is the new Monkey Knowledge added? Google Play says something was added.

            And thanks for the update!

              I'm happy that we're seeing new maps(something that the game very much needs) and I'm happy to see the updates coming out as promised. However, several issues have risen for me, not necessarily as criticisms, but suggestions. I know the game is very recent, and I'm not saying NinjaKiwi will never add these things, I just don't know. As a minor note to begin with, I would, as I'm sure many people have expressed, love to be able to change monkey knowledge. I was a BTD 5 fanatic, and my favorite thing about the game was how the specialty buildings for each tower made it possible to use every tower effectively, and this allowed for an incredible range of playstyles and ways to mix up the game. Overall, that feature is why I kept coming back to play BTD 5, even though I long since completed the game. Having fixed monkey knowledge greatly restricts the ability of players to be creative, and just have fun and mess around. My next big issue is towers. I like the new heroes, and I enjoy playing with them. However, I honestly would rather NinjaKiwi add TOWERS instead of heroes. In particular, the mortar and dartling gun from BTD 5. These towers were very fun to use and actually took some skill and practice to use effectively. I think it would be easy to come up with some very fun and unique upgrades to add to them to create the third upgrade path, or mix into the previous upgrades. Heroes are not as fun or flexible to play with as towers in my opinion. They are powerful, but they follow the same series of upgrades every game automatically, so once they are built, they don't really stimulate much fun gameplay. This brings me to my third and final point. WATER TOWERS. Currently only three towers can be built in water. This makes water maps less entertaining as they offer much fewer ways to play the game. It also leaves an enormous potential of ways that NinjaKiwi could go about implementing new towers. Off the top of my head, I can think of multiple water-based tower concepts, such as a scuba diver monkey, some kind of monkey that works similar to either the monkey ace or heli pilot in that it follows a path in the water or pursues the balloons along the path or something similar. Perhaps even more easy to design would be a water-based hero. I think that this is a necessity, as we now have 6 heroes that only operate on land. Perhaps some kind of amphibian tower or hero. It's up to NinjaKiwi to design, although I do not think this would pose a very great challenge. I'm doubtful that this post will be read by NinjaKiwi faculty or such, but I hope if it is, my suggestions are taken into consideration. I know other players would enjoy the updates I have presented, and it would make the game much more replayable than it is now.

                The DDT should count as stronger than the MOAB, BFB, and ZOMG because it has properties that make it more dangerous.
                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

                  It is stronger than a MOAB and BFB, however towers will prioritize a ZOMG over the DDT.

                Amazing update! I'm excited for the advanced challenges!

                  I agree. I wish there was some kind of a way to customize which is strong and which is less strong though.
                  If I can complete any Daily Challenge NAPS, then it should be extremely easy to complete.
