Questions from the comments:
Why rename sentry paragon to sentry champion when every paragon has its own unique name? Wouldn't people easily differentiate the two a few days after its release?
We’ve seen the feedback on that about the demotion to Champion. We also did a vigil for sentry’s demotion. Not really. We know experienced players would understand that a sentry wasn’t a “real” Paragon, but we didn’t want to cause confusion and we wanted to make sure that Paragon only means one thing in the game.
Do the heroes have costumes other than their skins? If so, what are they?
While a hero is in action during your game, that means a whole bunch of monkeys and outfits are not being used while you are playing. We expect there is a lot of dress up and costume swapping by the off duty heroes.
Why is the sci fi drone for sentai churchill and not for etienne
Etienne already has drones, why would he need another one? He did give that one to Churchill though.
Who are you voting for in Bird of the Year 2021? *please be paradise shelduck...*
We are gonna have to disappoint you… those okarito brown kiwis have our hearts.
Is the 000 dart monkey TRULY the best tower in the game ever?
They are pretty great.
I saw a BTD6 review that said "The monkeys scared my kid." Which monkey in particular do you think scared the kid?? My first thought was the kid was scared of Pat, but Pat is WAY too nice.
Maybe Ezili, she can be scary…
Are there any plans for BMC2?since there is BTD Battles 2.
Fair question but there are no plans or early designs for BMC2. We loved building and playing both the flash and mobile versions, but players didn’t enjoy it as much as BTD or Battles, so we’ll really have to shake it up if we go back to the idea of a world builder.
Have the ideas of Co-Op Odysseys/Boss Bloons floated about?
As you can see we have thought a fair bit about co-op Bosses :) Co-op Odysseys are also on the idea list but between the technical challenges with having a shareable Odyssey save point and the player burden of sticking together for 5 games it has not been planned. We haven’t seen that much player interest in it, so talk it up if you like the idea.
What do Bloons feel when they're being popped?
There’s no room in their rubber (or lead) for nerves, so they don’t feel a thing!
Do monkeys who get physically altered ever get to go back? Like can a bionic boomerang get back it's original arm or is the robot arm permanent?
The Monkeyverse has infinite unique realities, so the concept of an archetypal state is somewhat moot. For a given monkey, since Freeplay is also endless, when they embrace an upgrade they stick with it until the bitter end. Whether they then raise a cybernetic arm or a removable exoskeletal arm to eat their shawarma at the end of the battle is different across different Monkey realities. What remains the same is the powerful, good-natured heart that beats in all monke.
What's inside a sun temple?
Only Adora knows and she won’t tell us.
What does Dr. Monkey do in their lab? Do they ever have assistants or do they do all the hard work themselves?
They have assistants! Gwen was originally one of them but she kept blowing up experiments.
How do monkeys feel about Adora sacrificing them
What happens to monkeys absorbed during the process of making a paragon? Do they get sent somewhere? Do they combine into one being? Or do they get destroyed in some way?
The word “Sacrifice” was the most applicable for English and translation, but it is more like a commitment to the endless battle with the Bloons. When Monkeys take the field, they know that players will ask them to do the impossible against ceaseless, remorseless waves of enemies. Whether sold, Adora’d, Temple’d, or Paragon’d, they know existence is cosmically swift and they give their all, every single round.
is the impoppable monkey a sun avatar wearing green or is it a diffirent entity?
The Impoppable icon is indeed a Sun Avatar captured in the eerie green glow of battle.
What's $1 worth in the blooniverse?
Ok how about Prince of Darkness? What are his thoughts on Lych?
They don’t like Bloon necromancers on their territory.
I've heard many people say this and have different opinions on it but would it be safe to hug Adora? Would it be warm or would it melt you instantly since she's using the power of the sun god and glows yellow? Asking for a friend:)
Depends on the mood you catch her in!
What would happen to the Bloons Universe if the Vengeful Sun God got every buff in the game permanently? (Including buffs it normally couldn’t get like multiple hero buffs and primary expertise)
The Blooniverse would then have more stories to tell, full of chaos and power unchecked, a cosmic rebalancing that can mean the end of all current existence and the birth of forces that inevitably fill the such voids.
Out of Etienne or Churchill who is shorter? (not counting the tank)
Etienne but only just.
in the trailer for btdb2, i dont recall ever seeing where upgrade paths will be placed in the UI. where is that going to be, or is that something still being worked on?
You will have to wait and see!
why does admiral brickell have a pirate skin does she roleplay?
Who doesn’t have a pirate outfit?
Will we ever see the cave monkey come back as a hero?
Cave Monkey mostly likes to chill. We have no plans for Cavey Hero or a Power, but never say never. Wait, we just did, twice.
Has anyone ever made Adora laugh? Ezili might know her sense of humor, but I doubt she'd tell…
Why is Adora so grumpy? Has anyone managed to cheer her up?
Pat’s huge heart has been known to make her smile. Psi made her laugh once, but that’s the thing with telepathy - no one knows what they said.
On the map skates, why is it legal to pay 500 dollars and sink a small town? Also, there isn't a chinook or a monkey engineer, how does the town just fall through the ice?
How do you think Monkelantis came into existence?
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
