Questions from the comments:
How do you intend to add heroes like Brickell, Ben, or Psi to Pop!? It doesn't seem like their gimmick wouldn't translate well?
Bloons Pop is really its own game, and while we try to keep the essence of towers and heroes, we’ve also taken some freedom with the designs as necessary to make the game as good as it can be.
Can at some point y'all add custom rounds in challenge and odyssey editor?
It’s definitely something we’ve discussed here, but custom rounds are quite tricky to build.
Is BTD Battles 2 in the Alpha stage yet?
Internal testing is coming along nicely
Can I ask Gwendolin to pet her firefox
You can certainly ask Gwen about that!
why can some soap and bubbles pop lead
They’ve been… engineered that way.
Bloonarius is shown to create Bloons, but are his creations just a few measly reinforcements or a large sum of the Bloon population?
If you can call fortified BADs measly reinforcements. Definitely not a large sum of the Bloon population though.
Why is is benjamin in my house?
Maybe his wifi went out?
Can you PLEASE LET US SELL OUR USELESS 0-0-0 INSTA MONKEYS!!!
They can come in handy sometimes! We also aren’t planning any system to exchange insta monkeys at the moment.
Is The Tack Paragon kinda op in tests, or have you not tested it yet
With paragons releasing every update, does this mean that we won't see a new hero for a while?
We won’t be guaranteeing a paragon every update as it does take time to balance them! :)
Now onto the question; How many will you release per update? And how many updates will it take to implement them all?
More paragons will come when they are ready and (see first part): as many updates as it takes!
How can we be sure that monkey farmers aren’t eating a cut of the bananas they farm? I don’t think we can trust them. They are monkeys after all.
You don’t have to use them but when you pick up the banana’s, you get the same amount so maybe it’s you who is eating them…
Exactly how far ahead did you plan for Bloonarius Prime? I feel like the main gimmick will break at some absurdly high freeplay round numbers.
Quite awhile! Feel free to try… What's the highest prime round you can reach?
Why do the Paragons not have abilities?
They don’t need them
all paragons until this moment seem to have some type of mechanic parts on them... Did the sentry paragon design them?
They may have had a hand in it
Why are boss Bloons so hard? Ik people want a challenge but Elite have gone way to far.
The Elite boss is designed to be extremely challenging! We want to make sure there's something for everyone, even those players who have done everything else.
Why does the crossbow master have the strange eyepiece? Is it for aiming or is it for stopping his laser eyes?
For aiming and also to look cool!
Is there any other hero concepts, maybe churchill?
Our concepts don’t look all the same but you can have this very early version of Churchill!
How does the portable lake not get punctured when you place a tack shooter next to it
Tack resistant rubber
Will the Paragons actually be combinations of all the Tier 5s? Because I feel like they won't, but people are talking about Paragon Spike Factory and Sniper being overpowered, because their Tier 5s synergize with each other when they are combined.
We love that the community is already theory-crafting what each Paragon will look like and what they will do. We can’t really share any more on future Paragons just yet though.
What news source do the monkeys in monkeyopolis use?
A lot of monkeys read the Banana Weekly, but Mayor Monkey reads the Monkeyopolis Gazette.
Will you ever add more bloon properties to BTD6? Especially like the Zombie, Ghost, and shielded properties from BATTD. I feel like they would be great addition to BTD6. Maybe even Making a new game mode similar to alternate bloon rounds, but it's called advanced bloon rounds, and would include these new bloon types
We aren’t planning on it at the moment but I do love the Ghost Bloons from BATTD just for their evil little faces!
My friend and I were wondering what spirit animals that Mountain Obyn uses to pop the bloons, we can't seem to find anything on it…
It's a dragon! :)
the boss bloons are returning, but will there be new ones coming?
Perhaps, we cannot begin to guess what they have up their sleeves…
The word "MEP" is often used in the description of weapons in SAS4, but what does "MEP" stand for and what does it mean?
We aren’t 100% sure but it really does sound cool doesn’t it? :)
If Gwendolin is a tomboy, then who's the girly girl
Will you guys ever add a gamemode or something that uses the 100-140 freeplay rounds?
Maybe, I’m sure Rohan would love to.
Are alternate hero skins similar looking monkeys or are they the same monkey in a different outfit?
Same monkeys, different outfit.
This is going to be the biggest update since co op, so will you make more updates like this or are this once in a while treats?
We try to put as much as we can into every update but we will also have a few each year that are EXTRA special.
what ended up happening with aaron?
Aaron left Ninja Kiwi to travel and as far as we know, is very happy. :)
can gwen handle eating the carolina reaper?
She uses it as a garnish on everything.
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
