Pocket Thief needs a nerf is not something I think I've ever read on these forums. In the current implementation of the game, the Pocket Thief is far outclassed once Wave 50 rolls around by almost every other tower, and becomes utterly worthless past Wave 75. The Money Box might not look that impressive to you, but understand there are two LARGE differences between the two towers: 1) Thief is an individual tower, not a support. What this means is to have her generate maximum income, you need to boost her Speed, Money Gain and Luck up all to hell, which deprives other towers of those upgrades. The Money Box on the other hand requires nothing, it's used to simply buff your existing towers. This means the items that might have been wasted on the Thief, can instead be used on the carry. 2) The Thief stops gaining direct utility past level 24. Once she exceeds that level, her gold production has essentially peaked, and her stats are insufficient to have any other utility besides Gold production. The Money Box scales up all the way to level 99 however, and the Interest Bonus scales up more and more at higher Waves. Like the Thief, he cannot kill later Waves, but he doesn't have to, he's only there to support your main towers. A small strategic aside: If you have 12000 Gold banked up by Wave 70, you're going to fail. Invest earlier in to long term towers (Balu, Muli, Ripper, Shadow). Understand, I don't hate the Pocket Thief, and in fact use her most games as well beside a Hitman. But she most certainly is not overpowered, don't worry. If anything, she needs a long-term buff (Perhaps allow her ability to double every 10 levels). I like the Upgrade idea (Being a Bloons player, which is all about the upgrades). The two issues with it I foresee are a difficulty integrating with the levelling system, and the issue of current balance (As you pointed out, certain towers simply aren't useful just yet.
Thanks a ton for taking the time to read and respond to my post. Id love to know what you think of my new item suggestions. https://mazebert.com/forums/topic/new-item-rods/
Just so you know me and some other veteran-ish players are working on the wiki adding strategies and general info when we can, when you get the chance I would check it out when its a bit more complete.
http://mazebert.wikia.com/wiki/Strategies link, still a work in progress, I have put some stuff in the strategy section that might help you out.
Changes on http://mazebert.wikia.com/wiki/Strategies : -Added Item Advices -Fixed the Layout (added Sub-Headers) -Added Iron Man (supportive/Anti-Air) -Added tiny advices by a few towers. Going for the Wolf/Wolves, Ganesha, Forge and Abyss tomorrow or maybe later today. *Can we rename the Page to "Towers" and add the Pictures? Since the informations there are rather basic. Would like to see actual Strategies on the Strategy page. Like Combinations: Ganesha+Forge (and now wolves) Synergie, Metro only build [Iron man power leveler, as substitute for other leveling towers [forge etc], Full buff build for shadow/Jack etc. Since on that page its more like tower introductions and not really startegie in my opinion ^^ P.s. is there a way to see the whole "layout" [dont know a better word for it] of all the pages? Like some kind of tree to see which link goes where? like: ------------------------------------------Welcome Page------------------------------- -------------Towers--------------Guides--------------------------Items-----------Whatever -Darkness-Metro-Nature----Race guides-full shadow-guide- -Jilly -spider -blah.. -... the "tree" how they pages are bound together... is there a function to see it?
Its simple to you but alot of new people dont know those things, theres already a towers section, and technically suggested item building and the use of tower applies as strategy, there will be individual basic tower strategy, detailed in game synergy/placement/ specific build strategy, the tower section is just for stats.
One solution is if we had a section for tower understanding separate from the tower and strategy section, but I dont know how.
Ah, i find it incredible hard to navigate on the Wikia's. Is there a way to get an overview over the whole wiki with a click or do you have to use the "search" funktion or go from link to link? And Andy? I don't know if you follow such a thread, but if you do is there a chance for a little "private" chat? About 10-15minuets i guess. Got a few questions about ability triggers and a few more topics. I could find some stuff via trial and error and some stuff i simply cant really test on my own without huge effort and well... Doesnt matter if voice chat or somethin to type, but i would like if it is not publical available like on the forum ^^ for... reasons ;D *Edit: Never mind. Gonna send an e-mail to you when I'm home. just found the mail adress XD
