Bloons TD Battles 2: Agent Jericho Nerfed in New Update

Update 1.10.3 Ninja Kiwi

Update 1.10.3 for Bloons TD Battles 2 is here. This patch implemented a lot of balancing adjustments, particularly to Agent Jericho.

According to the developers, Agent Jericho has been an extremely powerful hero since he was introduced to Bloons TD Battles 2. His "Seize Assets" ability has been quite effective in siphoning money from enemies, so much so that the developers had to do something about it.

Thus, in Update 1.10.3, the amount of money Agent Jericho steals from his enemies at level 6 and level 9 has been reduced to $65 and $100 per second, respectively. Furthermore, Seize Assets only steals $130 per second from the enemy at level 11.

While Agent Jericho's Seize Assets ability has been quite powerful since release, the same cannot be said for his other ability, Bloon Decoy. The dev team stated that Bloon Decoy was quite underwhelming, especially when compared to Highwayman Jericho's Misdirection. So, to give it some oomph, they made a few adjustments.

First, Bloon Decoy's initial cooldown has been removed, allowing players to deploy another decoy immediately. Second, the ability's cooldown has been reduced significantly from 120 seconds to 90. And lastly, the Bloon Decoy now travels farther, covering two-thirds of the map before vanishing.
