Nerf regeneration plz kthx :eek:

At least, reduce their max HP so it's possible to one-shot them on a crit, because that is some powerful regen!

Also, are the fire turtles supposed to have a chance to proc their explosion on any damage? Because, rings of damage and venomous herbs become among the best items, causing masses of explosions/enemies to randomly explode as they walk along, respectively. (Please don't fix this. :D)

Creeps with regeneration have their max hp reduced compared to normal creeps, so they should be more easily one-shotted or burst damaged.

Yes that's intended to make it work on their multishot (Turtle upgrade). I don't know how to fix it from proccing off items so it'll probably stay ;)

Damn you're good at this :p Makes me consider reversing the HP scaling reduction of last update.
Whats your strategy to winning? Because when I test it with a friend we usually lose at some point during endless waves.

Well, for the most part, we've tried all the towers and figured out which are best...

In general: spells that towers cast are only worthwhile in early waves, nigh-useless in late waves. Hero towers usually aren't worthwhile. Splash damage generally isn't enough to be worthwhile. Chaos damage is very, very good to have. Buffing/aura towers are very, very good to have. Slowing/debuff aura towers are very, very good to have. Stun is useless since the endgame is now immune, except maybe on harder difficulties where the goal is to even get to wave 100 rather than to "win".

The towers are generally fairly balanced except for a few that stand out, which as you might notice, we spammed the heck out of :D: the air-tree tower that has chaos damage and slow on attack and true-sight (forgot the name) for focusing down leaks, fortified, divine, and regeneration waves, the turtles which can be abused in early/mid game, the Lifespring frost-tree towers which carried the late game, and with the following sprinkled throughout: air's slow aura and speed aura, frost's slowing towers, nature's buffing towers (war caster and ANGRY PIG SO GOOD), and death's Grim Wards.

Okay thanks, I'm considering nerfing Chaos slightly then. You think I should increase the HP scaling of endless waves? At this point it seems beatable, which it shouldn't.

Well, it was on Easy. *shrug* Why not have a "secret ending" or an achievement when they stop increasing in strength, anyway? Victory is nice. :D

Or maybe at some point in Insane Endless, make a bonus ending. Now I'm just playing with my friends until I lose...

At the moment when they don't increase in strength anymore (wave 200) they spawn mass instead of 15 per wave.
Endless with an ending is pretty odd :p Though I agree that some kind of victory is more satisfying than just more creeps.
I think I'll end the waves at 210.

Or maybe at some point in Insane Endless, make a bonus ending. Now I'm just playing with my friends until I lose...
Thats a good idea! I'll add that too.
PS: You've beaten Insane? O_O

Well, technically I reached Endless in Normal. I haven't dared to try Insane ever since I tried v1.12b and my friend disconnected.

Could you make it so that players can designate any number of endless waves? 210 might still be too little for some people (not me).

Fun TD. I enjoyed it. So far, one suggestion: Nerf the regeneration buff please.
That's what I said. ;)

Just further penalizing Regeneration's maximum health might be more suitable. Oh, and for some reason, Triple Armor doesn't seem to make much difference. You might want to make it like 10x or something. :eek:

Did he disconnect because of the game or because of an other issue?
I think its a bit overkill to make endless waves customizable. 210 waves is long enough I think :p

Okay, at the moment Regen creeps have 75% of "normal" creeps HP and regen their entire HP in 5 seconds.
Maybe I should change this to 60% of normal creep HP?

That's what I said. ;)

For Regen check my comment above.
Triple armor is indeed pretty weak. I'm thinking of changing it to 5x instead of 3x without changing creep HP.

    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.

    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
