    Hello CubeCrafters!

    We've heard your feedback, and are happy to bring you a small but balancing Tower Defence update. We understood that since the "Colossal Update" the game became unbalanced in some cases. After reviewing all the feedback from the community and our staff games, we've created this update to hopefully balance the issues you had and make the game even better.

    So without further ado.. ​
    Quick changelog
    • Coins rewards have been greatly reduced for higher level troops.​
    • Troop unlock/upgrade prices have been slightly increased.​
    • Slimes get 15% speed increase every split.​
    • Giants start running when at 10% health.​
    • Armageddon starts later in normal gamemode (25 minutes instead of 20).​
    • Survival gamemode is now more challenging.​
    • Hardcore gamemode has been rebalanced. ​
    • Some towers have been balanced as well (especially Turret and Archer).​
    • Numerous bug fixes.​

    To my opinion, 20 minutes before Armageddon in normal gamemode is long enough.
    By adding more time, the chance for a tie will increase. People have more time to max their towers and troops, which means both teams are very good when Armageddon starts. They will probably keep the mobs away from their castle long enough before the end timer runs down.

    After playing the update multiple times I can see many different features and changes that have occurred to balance out tower defence. Many of which I can see why were made others I am not that much a fan of. personally, my favourite has to be the mob price changing and currency changes. I feel that this will present tower defence as a more strategic game overall to newer players as well as the nostalgic Tower Defence community.

    I feel that feedback currently on this update is very positive from people and I can see why. However, some players who really favour this game mode may believe otherwise until this update has pushed itself within full swing which can be in a couple of weeks. I feel it just needs to settle before people are deciding if they really like this game mode or not.

    I can see that many of these balance changes have also given a large impact on the currency. I am now finding myself to have a lot more gold and experience per game than I used to which I am very happy about so I may need to play a few more games with the update to consider if I believe this was a positive outlook for the game.

    :eek:
