    Thumbs down Balloon Wars sucks and here's why

    Balloon wars is now confined to certain worlds. This is supposed to keep players who aren't interested in playing happy, and showcase the winning worlds.

    I feel like this BW sucks compared to the last two. Most of the fun for me was fighting people EVERYWHERE. The fact that -almost- nowhere was safe made me feel like it was a community wide event, like the Zombie Apocolypse event, which I also enjoy greatly. The previous format of BW caused me to explore worlds I'd never normally enter, and meet people who weren't trading or farming. Most importantly, I felt like there was a reason to cash in stuff for balloons, gems for packs, and a general sense of allegiance to my team. People were letting me use their machines, just so our team could win. That's moderately selfless and one of the few times I've seen consistent selflessness in Growtopia (though the Valentines Cards are also really great.)

    I feel like it's ridiculous to confine it to certain worlds just so people don't have to participate. That would be like confining geigers to one world, zombie virus to one world, fishing, etc. Ubi has taken a major, game-wide event and uprooted what it was supposed to be: Game-wide.

    People complained about getting hit by balloons in every world (including me) because it was really annoying and just like we wished - they changed it

    we all have different preferences so... Anyways there should be a limit to where you can play and where you can not, so this time they did good!!

    I agree with the post, but i also agree thats its annoying to get hit. However, once youre hit and other people can see youve been, they wont waste their balloons on you anymore. The irritation is very bearable. Its more fun to not have restrictions, because i liked to visit worlds and hit people myself

    Here's an option, make Balloon Warz an opt-in event, if you don't want to play it you don't have to and if you want to play it you just need to press a few buttons.

    Couldn't they just make Bath Towel Checkpoints easier to obtain then?

    Why was the Ultra Trophy 3000 made into some 2018 cheap knockoff? Whoever made the idea is so tasteless.

    :Oh no! I hate getting infected by zombies. Please make a special worlds only for zombies.

    :That would make Zombie Jammers useless.

    :Guess what they did to Balloon Jammers which cost more than 6 Zombie Jammers.

    I agree, new Balloon Warz suck, it was 5 times more interesting to go to different worlds and fight there. It gave me joy and I loved Ballon Warz. Everyone was building their own Balloon Warz fighting worlds, without care of wasting Wls, now these all worlds are useless. There even is an item, called "Balloon jammer", it's now just a useless "trash" item with no use. I believe, all those complainments are from some 9 year olds, who don't like, when balloons are being trowed at them. As everybody says:"Ubisoft is the killer of GT"

    The color that you get when you get hit really hurts my eyes because it's so damn bright or something. For me that is unbearable

    It wasn't just a few '9 year olds'. Had you been on the forums when the last warz was you would've seen how many people complained how annoying it was. Balloon Warz has always been weird - people love it or hate it, there seems to be no in-between
