Questions from the comments: 

do the bloons play the bloonTD games to make plans against the monkeys???????
We’re not sure there’s room for leisure activities in the bloons’ lives

Can i have a Ceramic Bloon as my pet?
You can certainly try

Will it be possible to obtain a Paragon degree of 100 in single player ever?
Paragons were designed with co-op in mind, so that’s where max power will stay for now

How do the Lead and Ceramic Bloons float?
Strong helium

If other animals hate bloons then why is it just the monkeys fighting them?
They might be, just in different areas 

Are any of the heroes roommates or possibly live near each other?
Striker, Brickell and Churchill all live fairly close to each other on the military base, while Pat and Ezili are neighbours! 

Has Max ever become part of a Paragon? If so, how would he describe the experience?

Would you ever let the community vote on which paragon is implemented next?
We might do polls at some point to influence our thinking but it won’t be a direct community vote.

Has anyone tried to arm wrestle Pat?
Nope. Arm wrestling is dangerous! 

how does the elite defender gun not explode while attacking so fast
Well made gun

What IS the intended meaning behind "Clean cut, and it still cuts a tomato!" ? It sounds like its supposed to be a joke but I've never gotten it.
May I refer you to: So less like it’s a joke and more a humble brag.

Why cant any of the flying monkeys or heroes fly over the track and water? why are the heli pilot and monkey ace the only exeptions?
Something to do with air traffic control and protected air space we heard.

If Sauda is from Korea, are there any other heroes that are from specific countries?
Countries aren’t quite the same in the parallel Monkey Universe, but to the degree there are references, Etienne would be from France! 

Do any heroes have beef with each other? (As in conflict)
Not really, they tend to have friendly rivalries. 

When will it possible for me to also have a dart monkey plushie in my office?
We hope one day soon! 

Is there an exact release date for the next paragon monkeys

Are there going to be monkey fusions?
Not at this stage, it would just be too complicated to try and make all of those upgrades work together! 

Do you ever think about making a new bloons game? Not TD, just bloons. I think it would be really cool to see with new towers in td5 and 6! For example, a wizard could throw different magical projectiles!
Have you checked out Bloons Pop? It’s a new Bloon game but isn’t TD. :) 

When you battle Bloonarius on BTD6, is each tier a new entity or they are all the same being ?
Same being, just coming back again and again. 

If Sav is a Sun AVatar(at least i think they are), the Tarn, what are you?
Tack shooter. 

What came first: bloon or monkey?

So why even is brickell in her boat? she doesn’t have to be in it at all times, right?
She doesn’t but she probably wouldn’t be as good at popping bloons if she wasn’t. 

Any chance for more battles 2 leaks and infos?
There is a chance. 

Do monkeys like listening to gorillaz
I think they Feel Good about it...

If you google “when will btd 7 release” it says 2024, is this a reasonable time to expect the game to be released
Not at all! That’s only three years away and we aren’t even thinking about BTD7! 

I’m really torn over this. Is a hug from Pat the most Blissful experience ever, Or the most painful experience ever?
It depends on who you are! Bloons get a painful hug but monkeys get a super warm and comforting hug. 

What kind of video games does Benjamin like? Does he like Platformers, indies, Tower defense, etc.
A bit of everything! He also enjoys rhythm games. 

If you say "Sav and Tarn" quickly, it sounds like Savatar. What are you hiding?
You’ll never know

Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
