Questions from the comments:
Has the engineer tried hitting his sentries to see if they get stronger?
He tried hitting a sentry champion and it exploded in his face! Never. Again.
Do Bloons have hobbies other than tormenting monkeys?
They seem pretty single-minded in their mission.
How are the relations between the normal personality-lacking monkeys? If a 0-0-0 dart monkey would talk to the anti-bloon, would it be like "Hello destructive robot of doom with lasers, how is your day going"?
Will Paragon instas ever be a thing?
No, as that takes away needing to build up to make your Paragon. :)
Why do we need a whole Support Chinook just to reposition monkeys? Why can't they just... walk a few paces left?
Wouldn’t you want to go for a helicopter ride every time you wanted to move?
What are we to the monkeys. A god or what?
More like a powerful force that helps guide them
what will happen with monkey knowledge in battles 2?
There is currently no plan to have monkey knowledge in Battles 2.
Can we expect another AMA anytime soon? You said you wanted to have them much more often and it feels like it’s been a while.
Our team has been pretty busy so an AMA hasn’t been on the cards lately but we would like to do another one. That won’t happen until at least the new year though!
Have any other monkeys been injured by the Bloons just like Quincy was?
Yes, most of them just retired though.
What is Ninja monkey's favorite past time activity?
The AMA said it was a possibility we could be editing tower stats this year, any update? Can you confirm that this won’t be in the Christmas update so I don’t get my hopes up?
Confirming it won’t be in the Christmas update. We’ve pushed out some pretty epic updates this year and have focused on Bosses, Paragons, Co-op Bosses etc. instead. Tower stat editor is a massive thing that we won’t tackle in 2021.
Is ice monkey's fur white because of the snow or because he's just like that?
What kind of music does Gwen like? Does she have a favorite band or musician in particular?
She really likes Johnny Cash.
Do you have any intel on the monkey with the Hockey Mask? I’ve heard he’s been a real menace.
Only around October.
Why does level 3 ettienne send 4 drones temporarily? Why not send four permanent drones? Do they run out of batteries or what???? I NEED TO KNOW!!!!!
Got it in one sir!
Why are all Bloon-related questions not answered to SAS-related questions? I have ignored the question many times. Also, "FACTION WAR" is not mentioned in the update information of the blog. Pay attention to SAS as well as Bloon. So the question is that a flash version of the Halloween theme for SAS4 will be back. Also, have you investigated bugs in the store's premium guns?
We try to answer as many questions each week as we can! The Halloween event should be live on SAS4 web now but sadly, we aren’t going to be able to fix the premium gun issue.
Are there any notable differences between battles 2 and btd6 balance that you guys can share at the moment?
Not at the moment!
Is the Bloon Master Alchemist blind?
Nah, they just like looking cool with those shades! (And they also double as great eye protection)
What does it take to be considered a Bloons Youtuber and get early access to BTD battles 2? (My YouTube channel is called “wers” and I want to know if I can get early access and make more content about Bloons games
We tend to work with YouTubers who we have known for a long time and who have been playing our games a lot. :)
Do the monkeys eat anything other then bananas, pineapples and sandwiches?
Of course, it’s just their preference!
What's the backstory behind the Lych Bloon?
It’s too spooky to share…
Will boss hp and overall strength be re-adjusted once more paragons get added? I feel like some paragons could throw a wrench in the balancing
We’ll continue to balance the game as needed and that includes changing boss hp, speed or anything else if it makes things more fun and/or balanced!
Will there be different game modes like bananza in btdb2?
Not at launch.
Does the highest Paragon Degree differentiate depending on the Paragon your making
No, formula stays the same.
If I'm bad at races will I be pretty bad at Battles 2? The concepts seem a little similar with Battles being a fast paced game where you need to react fast which I'm not so good at in BTD6
It won’t be quite the same but you will need to react to players sending you bloons.
how is quincy good enough at advanced mental math that he can use his knowledge of topology, geometry, and physics to instantly calculate how to shoot an arrow and have it effortlessly bounce between several moving targets, yet he can't use basic intuition to aim slightly ahead and hit a yellow bloon?
who's better at building things the Engineer Monkey or the Dr. Monkey
Oh, Engi for sure!
Can you confirm or deny the max bloontonium from a level in bloons pop is capped at 68 on purpose? (cause haha funni 69)
That’s just how the math worked out.
Do you have game-testers for the new updates and or feedback teams? Btd6 requires a lot of balancing considering the amount of features in the game. Also have you ever considered releasing snapshots (like what minecraft does) with a few features you want to implement and other things.
We have our design and QA team who handle these updates and keep them balanced! We also take community feedback from the last update into consideration. We have no plans for snapshots though.
Do you take suggestions for trophy store items outside of Icons and Banners? Because a Banana Monkey pet would be the best thing you’ve ever made.
We do! But who would they be a pet for?
How does the sentry champion/paragon feel about its name change? Or did it just seem to change for us but was always like that’s for the monkeys
They don’t mind so much! They feel more unique now.
is the monkeys battle with the bloons all the time? does they have a break?
They do! Everyone should take a break once in awhile.
What is Obyn's spirit wolf's name?
Have a great weekend and a very spooky Halloween!
