Questions from the Comments:

Are you worried that Cartoon Network will buy you out?
Nope!
 
Does a Hero stop giving Soul Stones in the emerald chests once you have that Hero maxed out?
Nope, any stones received for a maxed out Hero will be automatically converted to gold.
 
Can we get an actual BTD6 news?
Not yet!
 
Can you update the T101 Feldhaubitz RPS in SAS4 mobile from 0.8 to 1.0, like in the Flash version?
It wouldn't be till we can get an update out for SAS4 mobile but I can pass on the suggestion.
 
Can you allow custom Avatars?
Unfortunately not. The avatar is used at different sizes around the website and is loaded in games, so the way they're set up doesn't allow custom avatars. Maybe one day we'll change the system but it's not on the cards at this stage.
 
Can you include names on the friends list so it's easier to find people?
I've passed the suggestion on to the site dev. These little things would be low priority so we couldn't guarantee a change but they are good ideas.
 
Whoa, Bloons Adventure Time TD? Could you elaborate more on that?
From Cartoon Network:
Developed by Ninja Kiwi and based on their Bloons Tower Defense franchise, Bloons Adventure Time TD features the Bloon hordes invading the Land of Ooo! Finn and Jake will need all the help they can get to stop them. Players can recruit their favorite Adventure Time characters including Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Ice King and more, as well as the monkeys from the Bloons TD franchise as they travel from kingdom to kingdom to send the Bloons packing. The free-to-play game will be available this summer.
This is in development at NK EU and looks awesomely badass. I don't believe we'll be releasing any info about this game before it is launched.
 
Any chance that the Monkey Sub will be added to BMC Flash?
Unfortunately not. No further updates to BMC flash.
 
Have you thought about adding the leader board placement for players, so they can see where on the AP board they are, without being in the top ranks?
Passed this to the site dev too! There may be constraints like we have for in-game leader boards (only calculating the top 5000 places) but it would be cool to see :)
 
Will there be another meme competition?
Yes! You can bet your bottom dollar on it.
 
Why don't you give us a beta or demo version of BTD6, even if it's full of bugs?
A big reason is that setting up a demo or beta will take time which we would rather use to keep developing. Unfortunately there just aren't enough benefits to doing something like that.
 
Why didn't you pick any of the SAS4 memes?
The majority of the entries weren't picked. The SAS4 ones just happened to fall into that group.

And that's all there is this week folks! Leave any questions or comments below, good luck with your Haiku if you're gonna enter and have a fantastic weekend!
