    Default Balloon Warz - Complaint; a little topic on other monthly events

    Yes I've started with the title of the new update, how awful of me, I've truly committed a horrible taboo act haven't I? Not that it hasn't already been made obvious by the piles of other threads haunting this subforum. And considering the month is almost over, talking about the monthly update openly should be fine, right?

    It's already the 28th and we still don't have an update, I don't know if you know how months work but we only have 3-4 days left of this month. As the developers initially said when monthly updates were new stuff, these updates would be released as close to the start of the month as possible. Why then has it been pushed all the way to the end of this month? Fun fact: this monthly update is the latest in Growtopia Monthly Update history to come out.

    Furthermore let's get onto the actual update, the concept is great but I am once again appalled at the limits of this update, how is it not visible that lag will obviously screw people over, and why aren't there themed water bombs? We have 3 balloons which give different points but why is it so narrow minded, what about a balloon that does splash damage, anyone within a certain radius, or what about a balloon that gains 10 points if it lands a hit but takes a lot of energy to throw so paralyses you for 2 seconds; the possibilities are endless. The vast potential that could have been implemented in this new update but weren't is a real let down.

    In another thread I've already talked about the beta server so I won't go into detail about it, however, the beta has shown us all that this update has to offer. As Palea made a good argument of it in the aforementioned thread (except for a different reason), this update uses recycled features, it feels like a last-minute, scrapped together feature that brings us no new game-changing features. Consumables have been in the game for a long time, it would be nice if there was something unique to this update. It just feels like a combination of game pack, pandemic and daily challenge.

    Oh and I just want to add, if an event is new to a month, say it's like THE WHOLE MONTHLY UPDATE, like that pandemic thing we had going on earlier this year, why doesn't it happen MULTIPLE times in the month so we can actually enjoy it instead of a single day in the month where we can experience the new update until we need to wait another month for it to arrive?

    nah, it was full of toxic sbers farming undersea blasts to sb. There were so little people, there wasn't even really anyone to balloon. Also what happens after the war? Are the prizes?

    Beta server requirements lowered on the last day lol.



    Might I ask why the colour on the pipe of balloon-o-matic changed to green or something. It looked as if the feature was to extract balloons from the device by punching it or something they apparently removed it pr something. Or I'm just missing something.



    The beta server had a capacity of 1000 players but it only had 200-300 players. They made the requirements way to large only to change them without anyone looking at the announcements page every day.

    It's him voicing his opinion. We are a community, we rant to make things right. You don't sit here watching the staffs ruin the game or anything. Not saying I hate the new update but yes, the update could've used more varieties of balloons!

    I made one thread, specifically about the beta server and then later felt like making another one on the new update.

    It would be hard to attract the right audience then.

    Let's say you wanted to rant about eggs, cars, and kale. If you make one rant thread about it, titled "Rant," then people could stray away from reading it, just because they have no idea what it's about. You would probably get spammy answers, like "lol tl;dr please" or something like that.

    Default Rant. Balloon Warz update

    "Sorry this is taking so long, we need your help to beta test!"

    Oh ya right. Im kinda upset about this update.

    Now we were told to beta test. Yeah ok. Only stuff we find are non game breaking bugs and mostly text errors. Flickering vending machines, achievement blocks. Not like some other bugs.

    When i looked at this update i thought it was cool at first. Until realizing through others opinion what there saying is true.

    This update is recycled

    Game pack + daily challenge + carnival? Yeah shouldnt be that hard to code.

    We got a few items with a feature that will die in 2 months. Just like the other big features that the game introduced. Like carnival, tournament, crime fighting, pet battles, ect.

    Now the devs need to listen to us more often if the game wants to go where it wants to go. PAW is the only time they add it. But they do make changes here and there. But im taking about items and features.

    To be honest none of us wanted this update. This update is probs going to be like carnival.

    Start (Everyone does it) > (Middle class and lower) > (Lowest class)

    To be honest while typing this, this is just a portable carnival. Balloon o matic is like the ticket stand and the balloons are the tickets. And if you win you get prizes. The will drop down in price greatly.

    I would rather of had an update like pants or something. Simple and everyone will enjoy.

    Now that i think of it a ton of the items are reskins. 2/3. Since of team colors.


    Unless the devs hid 1/2 of the update then im upset with this and the time

    don't play the game if you want to make things right with just your own oppinion. not everything is taken and viewed openly by anyone, you know clearly what i mean by that
    if you don't good luck being the next "i support you, now you listen to me or i no support"

    Balloons with special abilities would be nice. Take an RPG game as example : usually some late-game weapons have special abilities to accompany it, of course, unless the developers are lazy.

    To be honest, the updates seem a lil' too useless to me. I honestly don't see the fun of world-hopping and spamming consumables at others. Such fun, much yay.

    I don't have a little brother, my cousin is older than me and he's interested in kungfu, additionally, he have left the game.
