Questions from the comments: 


Why Bloons Monkey City Steam was released in April 2020 and not earlier?
April 2020 was when it was ready. 

why did ya remove dad of Quincy from the trophy store
We’ve temporarily removed the Dad of Quincy pet from the trophy store while we fix an issue that was being caused by the item. 

What if orange bloons were added and were immune to debuffs(Slowdown, syphon funding, and decamoing) and also contained two purple bloons? How likely are you to answer random suggestions? What is the chance of a random suggestion actually getting added to the game?
We enjoy seeing suggestions, and have a number of times taken on feedback from ‘random suggestions’ - it’s generally not wholesale suggestions but it does influence or add momentum to internal design discussions we’re already having. For instance in this case we do talk about additional properties for bloons, for instance White Bloons being immune to all slows/stuns, but there are no plans to make any such changes.

What language is btd6 coded in?
We could only teach the monkeys sign language so it’s a combination of that and c#

What did the dad of Quincy do to make him so legendary?
There are a long line of Quincys so by definition a long line of Dads of Quincy. The bow is always passed down, and the feats of each Quincy become their own legends, but most tend to anchor around one shotting a BAD or somesuch. You can imagine what family Thanksgiving dinner would be like with all those brags going on.

Why Don't The Monkeys Get Destroyed When The players drops a nuke
Monkey Pilots have really good accuracy and you might be onto something about the type of nuke, some smart nuke tech that Dr. Monkey has cooked up...

Will there ever be a BMC2?
Possibly - we love the idea of BMC2! Like we’ve said in previous answers, however, we’ve got so much planned for BTD 6 and our other games that we’re keeping the focus here. 

If Etienne can't fly his drone in rain, why can he fly it in the logs terrain?
It's only a drizzle, doesn’t quite count!

Do you ever get tired of playing/working on BTD6?
Never! Would you?

How does Etienne's UAV relay information about camo bloons to monkeys that dont have camo detection? Do all monkeys arrive to the battlefield equipped with radio comms now?
Etienne's UAV sends updates to his heads up display and Etienne relays the information to the rest of the monkeys that are on the battlefield. 

why do you like the word 'awesome' so much
Because it’s legen… wait for it… dary! 

As December approaches, I was wondering how Ninja Kiwi will stay active when flash is removed. I love NK and have enjoyed many years playing your magnificent games. I know you mentioned this a while ago, but will you guys still remain here after December?
We certainly have plans for the website but things will change due to Flash no longer working. We don’t know exactly what that will look like yet though! Also, all of our Flash games will remain available on Steam via the NK Archive 

What does it feel like for the monkeys when they're tapped or clicked on by the player? It seems to annoy the heroes, but do the other towers get irritated with it, as well?
It tickles!

How does Extreme Odyssey work? Can you turn it on and off? Or is it permanently on for some/all Odysseys?
It is either on or off for each Odyssey, or at least some difficulties… (Tosh)

When you say "Sav and Tarn" really fast it sounds like Savatar. Sav, are you up to something here?
Pfftt… I would never… 

Is the tool for adding broken AP going to be fixed anytime soon? its really unfair to not have those achievements. Thanks!!
If you contact support, we can manually add these for you. :) 

What happens to the monkeys that you place down in Expert Odyssey after you go to the next map? Do they go home?
No, they stay on the last map and continue to defend! 

How old does a Dart Monkey have to be to fight the Bloons?
Old enough to be trained in the way of the darts. 

Who at nk has the best ace micro
We’ve never tried to compare! 

How does Ettiene control multiple drones at once?
Skillfully. 

How do I unlock the secret Rohan tower?
Buy him a castle…?

are Ben and Ettiene related? It seems so since they are technically both stationary and dont throw or shoot or laser beam anything so i see a connection.
No but they are good friends! 

Was everything you said in the btd6 15.0 patch notes really gonna happen? We already have Odyssey, Trophie Store, Heroes. Im curious if everything else listed on there might happen like Power Pros, Boss Bloons, Monkey Towers?
Yes! However, the time frame may not be as soon as you would all like. We want to make sure we can do it right before we put it out there. :) 

What's the worst thing Gwen has burned?
Herself. 

Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
