Questions from the comments:
Is there an Engineer Monkey that can build buff dispensers and teleporters?
We haven’t met one yet but you never know!
How many Dart Monkey Plushes have sold during the limited time event with Makeship? And was it much more than you expected, NK?
7026 were sold! We are super happy with it and glad so many people will be taking their own dart monkey home!
What did Obyn have for lunch yesterday?
Why is co-op not called co-pop
Because we had reached our quota on puns already…
Does the engineer build other devices when not in battle?
He’s always tinkering away at one thing or another
Have you ever considered a Bloons themed fighting game?
Not really, we’ve got our hands full with tower defense!
Did Professor Evil have anything to do with the creation of the Technological Terror?
An excellent question! We’re not sure but will ask Dr. Monkey next time we see him
Did you use the same voice actors for skins of the heros? (Ex:Gwen and Scientist Gwen)
Most of them, yes!
Who would win in a head-to-head fight, Lych or Prince of darkness, without following the rules of true game.
Both are powerful in their own ways so it's impossible to tell but we’d like to think Prince of Darkness would win!
Let’s switch it up a little, here’s a riddle; CookieCrumbGuy is a MONKEY, they like to heat cookies to the core but not hot enough to make nothing but crumbs remain. Who are they? A) Hot shot tack B) Fireball wiz C) Blooncinerarion D) Hot Rangs
Ummm…. Hot Rangs? I’m not very good at riddles.
What species / creature is Ascended Shadow ? Or it is simply a regular Ninja Monkey with a mask ?
Not any regular Monkey! An Ascended Master of Ninjitsu, combining all disciplines
Will bloonarius be appearing again?
If the Lych is able to resurrect undead Bloons, does that mean they're responsible for the Ghost and Zombie Bloons from Adventure Time TD?
They could be…
Will maps in BTDB2 be mirrored and if so will submerge upgrades go in different directions?
Mostly and maybe.
Why is ETN allied with the Monkeys?
Its motives appear most mysterious… perhaps there is a grand plan behind the alliance. Or maybe it likes the sound of popping Bloons :)
Why does the Lych not revive BADs? Hope for an explanation for this?
There is some limit to their powers
Do you feel a certain degree of love/connection with the BTD6 characters? I certainly do, the heroes are some of my favorite characters and I especially love Obyn, he's so cool and I just love his personality :)
Yes! A lot of us have worked on some of these designs or characters for a long time. I’m personally a sucker for Obyn as well.
Do Vortex, Dreadbloon, and Blastapopulous have a chance to get into BTD6, considering Lych was totally new? This is just out of curiosity, and I think you guys are doing an amazing job adding bosses, they're my favorite feature in the game:)
Definitely maybe! Our goal with bosses is to shake up your normal gameplay in new and interesting ways, if that intersects with some of our more venerable Bosses then yes!
Lych can ressurect DDTs and ZOMGs but the PoD is limited to BFBs, so does the Prince of Darkness use the a weaker version of the magic Lych uses?
It may be similar magic but different.
What silly things do the Heroes like to do?
When he doesn’t feel like talking, Churchill will slowly slide into his tank and shut the lid… it’s funny to watch if you aren’t the one trying to talk to him.
Has there ever been in-fighting between the Bloons?
ZOMG definitely wasn’t happy when BAD joined the gang.
If I’m not mistaken, this was the biggest update drought for BTD6. What part of the update took the longest to perfect?
Quite a bit of it is because the team spent most of this update in lockdown working from home! But apart from that, Boss ranked co-op was a massive challenge and we also made quite a lot of under the hood changes to the engine.
what was Adora like before becoming a High Priestess and having her powers bestowed on her by the sun god? was she yellow, or was that a divine reward as well?
Judging by her Vengefulness, it’s more like her colour suits her mood.
Where do the Super Monkeys go after a Super Monkey Storm?
Back to their fortresses of solitude...
How did Monkelantis come into existence? you're telling us, someone paid like 1000 bucks, just to drop a city into the ocean and call it Monkelantis?
We’re pretty sure it was there before the ocean… that in ancient times past, the ocean swallowed the city whole. Or what you said.
Each new BTD6 update brings a lot of tower balance changes and adjustments (camo prioritization, upgrades being unable to pop lead, etc). Will these changes be applied to the launch of Battles 2?
Battles 2 balance and towers are mostly locked in now, and we’re not expecting all BTD6 changes to go over to Battles 2 in future. But we’ll have to see how it goes! Nothing is set in stone at this point.
How angry is avatar of wrath
At least a little bit
I have seen too many hero-related questions. Let‘s give the Boss Bloons some attention too. Now here‘s the question: If gas could be spicy somehow, who would like it? And who would absolutely hate it?
Lych would hate the spice, we think.
What sport would Adora and Ezili excel at ?
Adora is great at tennis and Ezili is great at lacrosse.
what happened to the banners from the competition? will they come in a later update?
Yes! These take time for our team to add. :)
How does churchill like his coffee?
Black like the soot from his tank but sweet like him.
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
