  • Battles for Steam bug

    It's not really a glitch or anything, just that the Heli Pilot's target priority is so stupid to get around. First off, it AUTO switches to pursuit when you buy it, then using Tab to switch back to follow mouse... doesn't work.
    It gets stuck in "Patrol" until you have to click twice, or click the target priority buttons >:/

    There's no reason for this, and really needs addressed, because i love the heli pilot & wanna use it more T.T

    If you buy the pursuit upgrade, I'm pretty sure it's given that you want to use pursuit mode. Otherwise, the upgrade is useless.
    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

      Pursuit, yes. Razor rotors INVALUABLE at times!

      The stupid, dumb, very overlooked thing about Razor Rotors & pursuit is that THE PILOT DOESN'T FLY CLOSE ENOUGH TO POP THE LEAD IT'S TARGETING!
      That is a really big problem at times when you're in Random Trio, or just forgot a lead tower, in which case your best bet is to hope you have $14k on hand to missile them before they leak, unless you're willing to teach yourself the tech to get around it when it's not your fault.

      The worst part is that it was only fixed due to BTD6's engine being totally overhauled, and wasn't really addressed in BTD 5 / Battles

        Have moved topic to Ninja Kiwi -> Mobile -> BTD Battles as the Mobile and Steam version are the same.

        As for your the topic, you can get very quick at the Tab, Double Click, Tab combo to get it to follow mouse or you can manually click the target priority buttons like you would have to while playing the mobile version and it will skip over the Patrol mode just fine.

          It adds unnecessary tech for something that shouldn't exist in the first place. It's not that it's tedious, but it's tedious for something that should fall under common sense.

          It makes using Tab for the heli pilot completely useless, considering 2 out of 4 targeting options prevent you from pressing tab again, BOTH require a different amount of clicks to get rid of, nobody uses pursuit mode, and more importantly:It prevents you from selling, upgrading, or using abilities.

          This is forgiveable in BTD5 because you have as much time as you want between rounds, but here it's Realtime! There's no time to stop and think. One wrong move, and you don't come back.


          EDIT: No, they're not the same. There's an obvious layout change, and you can't use a keyboard on mobile, hence what this thread is about.

            The core systems of Mobile and Steam are the same. Sure one uses a keyboard and the other uses touches but the underlying game is the same. If you did want to check out just how different the web version is you can do so here: https://ninjakiwi.com/Games/Tower-De...l#.W_y_luh_KUk

            The web version even has a totally different keyboard hotkeys.

            (You can comment on comments?!? AWESOME!)

            And i see your point about being labeled a "web game", not a "PC game".

            You sure can! You did actually highlight a good point. I might think about renaming the mobile section to mobile - steam within the forums.
