I use the get Function on every person I send a crate too :D

I usually only use it if someone says something like “I’m in the middle of a map, I can send it in a few minutes”

Good idea for the post. Maybe we can get Cisz to link his video showing the process…

Each supply crate is worth 15% of your starting cash.

Yes, so it includes the value of special items (the coin purses) and whether you used bloonstones. Also, according to the NK Encyclopaedia (that is how they spell it) the base formula is: cash = (250 + level*100)

So the crate would be:
.15 [250 + level*100] = [37.5 + level * 15]
+7.5 for the Magic Coin Purse
+30 for the Epic Magic Coin Purse.

Ah cool, fixed it :)

Good point, here is the video: Click me, I’m a short guide!

Also, there is a common problem with people setting their profile to private. The ingame friendlist does not work if you do that. To trade you need to at least temporarily have a public profile.

Also added :)

Engineers, More bloonstones (but more cost to upgrade that city too), items, knowledge packs……….and something to keep your bored if your city 1 is maxed out or if you feel like doing easier maps.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Why and how to trade crates

tired of repeating it so just going to link this thread from now on…

(If you want to a guide in fancy video form, Click here for Cisz’s guide!)

1. What are crates for?

At the start of regular maps or CT runs, you have the option of using 1, 2, or 3 crates. Nothing will happen until you send the first wave. When you do, a single crate of money will be dropped out of the sky. You have to collect it with a mouse-over.

The value of the crate is 15% of your starting cash, or:

[(City Level * 15) + 37.5 + (7.5 with Magic purse) + (30 with Epic Magic Purse)]

If you selected to use 2 or 3 crates, they will drop at the start of the 2nd and 3rd round.

If you restart the mission, it will automatically repeat the crate selection, using up additional crates. If you restart before they drop, you will still have the original crates.

If you cancel a mission, the crates will be gone IF they already dropped. If you cancel before they drop, you will still have them.

2. Why do I trade crates instead of using them?

You get 3 free crates a day that can be sent to other players, but NOT used by yourself.

You can see how many you have to trade by the number in the upper left corner of the “GIVE” arrow.

3. How do I send a crate?

-Make sure your Kong profile isn’t private, so that the game can fetch your friend’s list.
-Click on the person’s name in the Kong chat.
-Click “add friend” to add them as a Kong friend.
-Wait 10-20 seconds (but sometimes up to a minute) for the game to update your Kong friends.
-Click on the blue “GIVE” arrow in the bottom right of the screen.
-Find their name on the list (If it doesn’t show up, close out and reopen after 5-10 seconds)
-Click the button by their name, send the crate.

4. Anything else?

-You should probably confirm the trade before randomly sending. A friend may have already sent out their 3 free crates. Also, the notification for receiving crates can be glitchy (Especially if multiple people send you crates at the same time)

-It can take a few minutes to receive your crate. Possibly longer, if the person is in the middle of a map.

-You don’t really need to use the “GET” button. It could possibly help them find your name off the “GIVE” list easier, but they’ll probably have sent the crate before it shows up anyway.

- If you want to see how many crates you currently have, hover your mouse over the crate image between “GIVE” and “GET

Originally posted by rockdust:

I never finish a tile I can’t NLL hardcore. I try to chase chests and special missions as much as possible, otherwise I just complete tiles randomly.

I started doing that…..but maxed out city 1 upgrades and close on city 2….so starting to care less. Sometimes I’ll continue or sometimes I’ll retry without HC.

But I usually try to do the easiest tiles when I got no time, or look for chests/special stuff when I have time

Yeah….9 hard tiles (most were forest…meaning no farm) plus a week to build and a week to research temples.. my city 2’s consecrated ground isn’t nearly as far out, but I’ve still been lazy to free the 9 tiles :P

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Priority Tier 4 upgrades?

ring of fire (4/x tack) first……it’s one of the cheapest and most useful upgrades, and you can research it at a lower level than most

banks (x/4 farm) second…..while the 4/x path does earn more money per round (4.5 vs 3.5-4), it costs much more so it takes a lot longer to get a return on your investment…plus the crates can lag you. (Always get max 2/0 out farms before upgrading one to 2/4)

Other than that…probably trap (4/x engineer) and supply drop (x/4 sniper) for when farms are disabled

Then bloonjutsu (4/x ninja), damage supply lines (x/4 ninja), then assassin (x/4 bomb), and temple if you can find the grounds.

Many of the T4 cost more than what they give you so you’re often better using a larger quantity of T3 stuff. A couple 2/3 bombs and a couple 1/3 spike factories under a 2/3 village can kill zomgs/ddts pretty easy. T4 seems mostly for later CT rounds where everything gets a large HP boost.

oh, spec (4/x ace) and overclock (x/4 eng) are good for CT. (kind of expensive for anywhere else)

Seriously though, if you find a bug it’s way more efficient to send a bug report through kong. They don’t have time to be searching forums of every website that hosts their games.

1. only 1 person will play more, the other 5 won’t be
2. without 5x the rewards, it isn’t worth it to the one person

best to go 4/0 before adding the 4/2 for range boost

When someone is constantly bidding against me, sometimes I just keep the bid screen open and don’t collect the previous bids….but that wouldn’t happen until I’ve been outbid several times.

I know I got a snow frag #4 when I sent that…I just don’t remember for sure where it was from.

I think it was from a treasure chest on a help link’s free visit.

Depends what’s north of the image, could be a free space or could be a puddle…..but yeah, should be careful about it if you’re not good with spacial relationships.

But I went into a blocked area knowing I could get out……but then I ran out of time. So it could be useful to have a general idea of how it works even if you don’t plan to use it. (Could also slow you down in addition to being confusing to you….though it never seems to hurt my number of clicks)

Here’s an example of how jumping tiles works…it might be good to just avoid it if you’re confused but it might help if you know it:

You can only go forward, right, or left based on your current direction. (not back in the direction you came from). You can jump any number of DUG tiles. Undug tiles (primarily the green puddles) cannot be jumped.

Here’s an example of how it might be beneficial:

I had a 5% chance for success, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 35%, 40%, 45%, 50%, 55%, 60%, 65%, 70%, 75%, 80% and 85% all fail back to back to back in another game. I don’t feel like math…but I know that’s a really low chance :P

Plus I don’t think they ever established a MK drop rate. I think it was just guessed by players.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Occupation Rewards

I agree, but the complaining is mostly by people who don’t want and/or plan to spend a long time playing, they just want to login a day in a week, spend some time in CT, grab the bonuses, maybe do a tile or two and it’s byebye untill next week
Playing that casually is fine, but please don’t complain that you can not play competitive that way

Some people also want to do CT in 2 cities, plus do regular tiles to advance…with 70+ round CTs at an hour+ each…it’s just not worth the rewards.

Especially true when the coins don’t matter anymore…I own my CT and there’s like 30k+ coins that I can’t use because my banks are full and upgrades are maxed…which is why they need to sell knowledge packs for like 50,000 coins each

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Occupation Rewards

Milestones meant you could play 1 time, and you could stop playing as soon as you reached your goal.

Occupation means you have to play 5+ times, PLUS you want to keep playing as long as possible, PLUS you have to win your group.

The rewards should compensate for this, by being about 10x more than they currently are.

On topic with the rest of the thread, chances are the price increase is a bug. Slow development means that it might take a little while to be fixed.

They’re usually pretty quick when I’ve reported stuff…..I guess I’ll report it as a bug and see what they say.
