Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Did the game get laggier than usual?

I have noticed that if I keep the game running longer, the slower it gets. The FlashPlayerPlugin process (in Windows task manager) will keep using more and more memory as BMC seems to have a memory leak. At over 1GB of memory used, it starts getting slow on some maps with lots of activity, especially high levels of CT. Best thing to do is to reload the game or better yet to just close your browser and reload it. Of course having other Flash content active will slow you down even more.

I forgot to check today before starting CT, and by level 36 I started to notice that it was getting really slow. I was in a conundrum of continuing on knowing my frame rate will really suffer later on, or reloading and having to start all over. I decided to stick with it and by level 100, I had about 1 fps. Checking now, Flash is using 2.3 GB of memory as I still never restarted it.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / 90k Temple setup?

This is a calculation with Monkey Knowledge rank 1 and 2 for Mortar and Tycoon to make base cost and upgrades cheaper, which should apply to most players. If you have rank 6+ of Mortar or Tycoon, or rank 5+ of Super Monkey, then these values will change.

Costs for the explosive tier:
4/2 Mortar: 13865
2/4 Mortar: 11675
4/2 Bomb: 6565
2/4 Bomb: 5875

1 × 4/2 Mortar + 1 × 2/4 Mortar + 1 × 2/4 bomb = 31415
1 × 4/2 Mortar + 3 × 2/4 Bombs = 31490
2 × 4/2 Bombs + 3 × 2/4 Bombs = 30755
1 × 4/2 Bombs + 5 × 2/4 Bomb = 30065

I guess by going 4/0 or 0/4 you can get some combinations closer to 30000, but I’m too lazy to figure those out.

I’m all for keeping the cards really rare. It should take a lot of effort to get the 6 star cards and an average of 10k energy(I don’t know the real number, but just making an estimation of what it migth be at) to get one doesn’t sound all too bad to me. Let’s say you’re an active player then you can easily get 10k mobs won in a weekend that means you’ll have to do these bosses for about 10 weeks to get a permanent 60% bonus.

I agree and was surprised how easy it was for players to get a quick 30% – 40% permanent bonus. I have to grind FW month after month to have a 16% permanent bonus. At least improving the card bonus will take lots of work.

Actually if I check FW or mines, mobs give me mist/3 coins. Which area are you referring to, or are you referring to a non-event bonus which should give perhaps mist/4.5 coins?

From what I can tell, this seems to be the case. It’s hard to find cards now. I see players frustrated that they can’t get city leader cards. I expected the drop rate change would have been listed in the Official Announcements thread update, but it wasn’t. A few of us were lucky to get the cards early. I think it took me about 1K in e to get all of the city leaders twice.

I also wanted to say thanks for the update as well. I know lots of hard works goes into supporting and advancing this game, and not much gratitude is shown for it. The card system was a nice little unexpected surprise.

After you sharing 10 crystals a day and making 35k puzzles a week, it’s normal for you to be at Hell 5.

Makes complete sense, [Removed].

Topic: Dream World / Possible hacker?

Hmm I was directed to this thread. I can’t see the puzzle stat now (new week I guess) nor have I even cared about it. No, I am not a hacker. It’s buggy as far I can tell. How can I do 21K puzzles if I don’t even do 21K mobs a week? I see someone has 100k even puzzles now. Who cares.

As to the crystal sharing, this is buggy as well. I often share, but they don’t get posted, sometimes for weeks. Then some days I get bombarded with the share popups as if the old ones are catching up… no matter what I’m doing. Fighting invasion, or even when my browser is sitting idle… very annoying. I click “share” most of the time anyways, and I see multiple feeds go out in the same day. They don’t even work as people trying to claim them get the message that they already claimed from this friend. It probably has to do with me often using a different browser to chat which probably messes up the Kong scoring/messaging system. But you guys can think I’m exploiting all you like if that entertains you.

Topic: Dream World / ITS HAPPENING!!!

I have to agree with Spartacvs and Omark on the Black Market enchant nonsense. I can see using the BM to bid on gear that would be used for fusing which I don’t mind too much as the bids will go high enough, but the buyout option is downright a steal and ruins the game.

Currently there is a demon slayer of power +9 worth 14 gems. I don’t know how much a demon +4 item is… perhaps 9 gems? If I could easily buyout demon/alien gear with 20 enchants repeatedly, and add one to fuse it, I could repeatedly buyout an item and create a fusing tree of demon gear to fuse onto and make a highly enchanted item for cheap. Remember enchants on source item must be greater than enchants on target item.

Why buy an epot for 5 gems that has a 20% chance for a single enchant when you could buy a sure 20 for 9 gems? This is very broken.

What? Easily obtainable? Are you out of your mind? .

Yes, I must be out of my mine. Look at the gear of anyone who puts a decent amount of effort into this game. Look at the top 100. If you don’t find what you want, then buy it off the BM. I’m just asking for a new tier of gear that is much harder to obtain to make itemization more interesting.
