The developers of Bloons TD Battles 2 launched a minor patch recently. Update 1.4.1 added a new feature that allows players to know their connection quality in the game.

Some balancing changes are also implemented in Update 1.4.1. First, Bloon Sends got a minor buff. Now, the eco generated by sending grouped Lead Bloons to the enemy is increased to 4.5.

While Bloon Sends got a slight buff in this patch, some towers in Bloons TD Battles 2 are nerfed. The Bomb Shooter’s xx3 Cluster Bombs upgrade now costs $900. The x3x MOAB Mauler could be used to deal bonus damage to Ceramics. However, that is no longer the case in Update 1.4.1.

Some of the Banana Farm’s upgrades have their costs increased as well, including the xx3 Marketplace ($3,000), xx4 Central Market ($13,000), and xx5 Monkey Wall Street ($43,500). The increase in prices is not all too bad; they would just set players back a little bit when it comes to upgrading their existing farms.

This patch also brought bug fixes, including:

  • Fixed hotkeys not being saved when set to their default value (Desktop only).
  • Fixed some hotkeys retaining their previous function in addition to their new function when customized (Desktop only).
  • Fixed an issue where using hotkeys could cause towers to appear in the center of the map. (Desktop only)
  • Fixed bling season items showing the incorrect timer.
  • Fixed opponent health bar sometimes not updating correctly during games with high latency.
  • Fixed in-game rules button not being spaced correctly.
  • Fixed event banners disappearing if scrolled too far.
  • Improved visuals on Stick Arms bloon decal.
  • Fixed frozen regrow bloons not being prevented from regrowing.
  • Fixed costs changing for all towers rather than just the one being placed when placing in the radius of a 001 Monkey Village.
  • Fixed visual issue on Speed Battles prize track.
  • Fixed games not reconnecting correctly after a disconnect.
  • Fixed banana farms constantly appearing to need collected on the opponent's screen.
  • Fixed the “New Player” button on the login screen not redirecting to the signup page.
  • Fixed icicles from the xx4 Ice Monkey appearing to remain on bloons after they have expired.
  • Fixed Sonar emote not fitting in the speech bubble.
  • Improved input delay when placing and upgrading towers quickly.
  • Fixed 4xx Buccaneer planes not launching when next to a Monkey Village.

So, what do you think about the balancing changes? Do you find the new connection quality indicator useful or not?

Bloons TD Battles 2 Update 1.4.1 is available on Android, iOS, and PC.
