Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Pacifist mode

If it is stuck off the next time you are attacked revenge back once and it should start the 3 day timer again, then after 3 days it will ask you if you want to go into pacifist mode again. It is rather buggy so you may be kicked out of it again but you should be able to go long periods without being attacked as long as you don’t attack anyone.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Should I start MvM?

You don’t get bloonstones from MvM you only get the bloonstones that you would have gotten from taking the tile normally. Buying the buildings are ok they are a good source of XP you just don’t have to actually attack anyone with your bloontonium. What you get from MvM has nothing to do with skill if you send out attacks and make lots of money it just means that your attacks went to players who had no ability to defend your attack and if the game allows you to attack them over and over again you constantly win and they constantly lose and it won’t have much to do with skill. I defended almost every attack that was sent against me and I basically got nothing from it and I’m assuming that the people who attacked me got nothing as well. The game was intended to try and level your honor at a certain point but the system is broken in some way so some can get lots of cash to a point but in order for one person to get a lot of cash there are a lot more players losing cash than winning.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Game receiving support?

The game is being supported, many of the new bugs are coming from the updates that they are making to the game. They seem to have trouble with most new features and updates and it usually takes them a few days or weeks to fix the problems and get the game working again. The 2nd city, Monkey Knowledge and the events are all new to the game. They also changed the tile strengths that I think made closer to the center tiles easier and farther out tiles a little tougher. The game does have a number of bugs and the list seems to be growing as they add new features some NK will fix if you open a ticket on the NK site others you are just stuck with and have to decide if you want to continue playing if they effect you often enough. I have head that Players who have lost their levels on Monkey Knowledge have been given some free packs but it wasn’t really enough to compensate them for their lost of rank I know if that happened to me 2 or 3 times I would likely be done with the game. Currently I’m in retirement due to the pacifist mode glitch but it sounds like the most recent bugs in that regard this week have caused NK to finally look into the problem and I wonder if they may actually finally do something about it or even shut it down as they have started to see it effect the number of people playing the game.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Should I start MvM?

I would try to ignore MvM the game will place attacks nearer your center which means it tends to choose tracks that you had trouble with so were leaving until you were a higher level. The game sometimes seems to send stronger attacks than you can handle which makes me think it might be using the actual tile to figure out some of the waves. If you don’t like to lose your can burn through your crates and bloonstones defending the attacks. If you lose the game can take a lot of your money so it is wise to spend as much as you can before you defend but that is tough to do if you are saving up for an expensive upgrade. If you lose and you don’t have any cash the game will destroy your buildings and you have to wait a short time for them to repair so you may need to play a while in your other city while they repair. If the game starts sending you attacks you can’t handle or the same people keep attacking you because you lose to them you now basically have no defense and will feed them cash until you can level up enough or quit playing. If you only play a certain amount of time per day you can spend all of your time defending attacks and have no time left to take the tiles that you were trying to take.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Pacifist mode

This game has a number of major glitches that basically ruins the game for players it doesn’t sound like they have any intention of ever fixing it, I guess they are ok with a certain percentage of players leaving their game with a bad experience.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Continuous attacks

I think you need to either quit or wait until he does. Maybe stop logging in for around a week so his attacks don’t resolve and that may stop him from being able to send new ones. Then log in so they all resolve and see if he has forgotten about you.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Seem to have hit a wall. Need help.

Actually what I found worked best for me was to stop trying to beat the tiles around my base and find some tiles you can take to go further out away from your city, you get more choices to find tracks you can beat easily and most of the tiles actually seemed to be easier than the ones near your base. Once you go up a few levels it should allow you to beat some of the tiles nearer your city if you want to or you can stay out in the more open areas.

I’m not sure if that was removed or if that is still how it works in that game currently but if the developer is changing the game to stop a player from doing something I would call that an exploit.

So in essence, if the devs ever nerf anything, anybody who had previously used that were using exploits? As I don’t want to use exploits, how do I determine what the devs will or won’t nerf in the future?

Not really if boomerangs popped twice as many bloons than they do now at 2/3 we would all be using a lot more boomerangs. If the game has a timer on a power that is created to to give 1 crate every so many seconds that say gives you 1,000 on average and there is something that allows you to get 10,000 on average per use that would be considered an exploit.

You mentioned locking bloons with ice towers among the exploits. That’s as readily available to everyone as farming is. Why is using the functionality of one tower an exploit, while using the functionality of another isn’t?

There should be a Sand Box/Endless Mode option on every map in which you can decide difficulties and there is no limit to the number of waves and you can play until your last life remains. There could be rewards after every 5 or 10 wave. There was a similar Mode in TD5 and the developers should consider adding it in this one as well.

You can replay any map you have beaten but only for cash and it won’t be endless but you are allowed to make some selections on what bloons you will see. Just click on Monkeys & Items and then click on My Tracks and click on the track you want.

So basically, as long as you’re better than somebody else, you’re using exploits?

Actually, when u have 2nd city u get so much bloonstones that this is not a problem anymore (though it is not good to use bloonstones for that)

In theory the 2nd city doesn’t give you more bloonstones to use since the bloonstones gained in that city would need to be used for that city, but it does speed up getting your upgrades a lot since you can borrow from your 2nd city to pay for your 1st cities upgrades and then when your 1st city has all its upgrades and you are a higher level you pick up a lot of bloonstones that you can pay back to your 2nd city to finish its upgrades. I would still say do as many tiles as you can in hardcore mode to get extra bloonstones and only use them for upgrades until you have completed them all.

You seem to be describing a large game bug but it seems you are the only person who is currently trying to exploit it so once you figure it out you would be the cheater. If you don’t want cheating once you figure out how to duplicte it why don’t you report it to NK so they can remove it from the game.

Sniper farming and regrow are not exploits, they are strategies and they are extreme hard to do.

If that CT bug did happen, you should have taken a screenshot and posted in the bug report thread.

One sniper technique used lag another required locking down a bloon in an ice tower those would be exploits and the second one was removed in BTD5 a while back. Using whirlwind on regen bloons would be a tough technique to master but should also take forever since you would most likely be starting with only 1 sniper so unless you were using some type of lag trick I don’t think the developer intended you to spend hours blowing back bloons to make unlimited cash. Are there any other methods that you have that you wouldn’t consider an exploit let us know. Someone in an earlier post said he was using something that he wouldn’t tell others what he was doing, if you are doing something not readily available to all players and you are trying to keep it secret that meets the definition of an exploit to me as well and would make me think if it was more widely know that NK might remove the ability to use that technique.

From there if you get additional attacks you can defend them and not revenge back otherwise it will reset the 3 days. Once the 3 days passes you will be allowed to go back into pacifist mode until it breaks on you again and you get another attack.

No! this is a good advice ninjakiwi gonna erase attack from you and will ban the guy attacking you.
like that dude attacking people in pacifistmode. [REDACTED] was banned.

They won’t be able to remove an attack within the 24 hour time limit it will most likely complete before they would do anything about it.

7. A 2/x Bomb Tower can pop black and zebra bloons due to the frags, but a 3/x Bomb Tower cannot.

The 4/x bomb tower gives back the ability to pop black and zebra bloons.

On NK they have reported that this is a bug that they didn’t appear to be aware of until players pointed it out to them and they said it may take them a few days to fix but they did indicated that they didn’t intend to change the tower prices in hardcore mode.

Ninja Kiwi has transferred players games from Kongregate to Ninja Kiwi but I’m not sure they if they would send a game in the other direction since you would be leaving their site.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Pacifist mode turning off

I don’t believe removing your mvm buildings will stop you from being attacked, I hadn’t built my buildings to start with and I was attacked and couldn’t enter pacifist mode. I was only able to enter it after being attacked and after I finally built the building that allowed me to attack back. I’ve read that defending won’t reset the counter but sending a revenge back will. You are correct though that there is a bug in pacifist mode as well since I have been attacked while in it. Here players can follow you and attack you using the friend attack that will bypass everything and there isn’t much you can do about that.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Bugs Megathread

My game has now started flash crashing when using Opera I think it started after Opera’s last upgrade and a little while later they made me upgrade my flash player. The game will work fine when I use IE on the Ninja Kiwi site but here says Flash required and the game won’t load. I have tried Firefox before but found it unrealiable for bloons it was very laggy.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / level 40 hackers

I would say pretty much every player currently at level 40 just changed there level to 40, it has been going on since the game came out they are fairly easy to spot because there name doesn’t exist on the leaderboard and then they show up at 40. There have been 100 players at level 40 for at least a week now so unless newer players who get to 40 go above the older 40s the entire leader board is currently hacked. After those players are the legit players who are good and have put a lot of time in as well as players using exploits to get ahead but I don’t think any of them have reached level 40 yet. The rest of us are going to be maybe max 30 or lower at this point.
