I always hope that somebody else has something to say so I tend to put off submissions and forget them.

Shattering Barrage, short_explain:
Sxpends all mana to freeze an enemy and cause all damage to crit. Fires all icicles.
Expends all mana to freeze an enemy in place and cause all damage on it to crit. Fires all icicles.

(edited)
The always crit thingy crits already critical damage, not sure if that can be allowed.

I would replace the always crit with a flat damage increase

Nice and complex tower. I'm sure it would enrich playing the ice-element. I'm excited to see if it'll be suitable as hybrid carry-tower. I haven't figured out that many ice towers to be good for that yet :)

Creator's reason for this update:

Bit late to the party here :( Been a while since I've touched this stuff so forgive any mistakes.

Fixed typo

Icy Bombardment:
"Attacks have a 15% chance to fire a projectile at a random point within 150 range of the attacked creep that deals 17.5% of current attack damage as Frostburn damage in 175 AoE splash."
-I prefer verbosity over obscurity - this was the shortest form I could come up with that also includes all the technical detail.


Icicles:
+short tooltip:
"...chance to create icicles that..." --- that instead of which,
'Which' sounds wrong to my ear here, not 100% sure about grammar though


+I thought the "permanently increases damage by 4%" meant to the target, not this tower. You want to add 'by this tower' in the end, like "permanently increases the damage dealt by future icicles by this tower by 4%."

I'd also prefer it to be a flat value - percentage values might cause confusion with regards to exponentiality, and it's easier to figure +260 damage vs. 4% of 6500 (260).
This would of course remove the scaling from 160 to 260 with level. Also trivializes the level bonus, juxtaposing +100/lvl with +260 per icicle.

Also, on average, the permanent increase is +65 damage per attack and it scales with trigger chance and attack speed. That's a bit too strong.

So I'd really like to see this tower implemented (as well as the others sitting in approval-limbo)... any suggestions?

Well, I suppose it's been enough time for any additional suggestions already. I'll also assume I double-checked the code previously.
