Questions from the Comments:
Will we have to wait till October for the next BTD5 web update?
I can't pin down a specific time yet but it should be around September. We'll include all complete vaults up to that point.
Will we be able to use our existing mobile progress in Tower Keepers web when it drops?
Nope. This is something we won't be able to get for a while (if ever).
Why did you remove the Zombie Mech from SAS4 events?
The Zombie Mech didn't scale properly with events so sometimes matches would only spawn mechs and be super easy.
Why did you remove the glow from the Rubicon Power Assist in SAS4 web?
It was a long time ago, but something to do with an art glitch.
Why is Tunnels an Expert track?
It's a bit tough and we decided to leave the difficulty rather than change it when it turned out to not be as tough as other Expert tracks.
Why are the glaives in BSM2 red hot (by color) but unable to pop leads?
They were just painted red so they go faster.
Competition with a prize of BTD6 early access?
Will you plan or are there plans on making Custom Card Clubs in Battles?
We've discussed the idea but it's not something we've planned to do. If you have specific rules/ideas you'd like to suggest please send them through. We could look into implementing new ones even if there isn't fully customizability.
Will Bloons Monkey City mobile ever receive a second city?
No, there are no further updates planned for BMC.
Will BTD6 have any community involvement, such as tower ideas?
We've always taken those ideas on board to influence our design process. We've even used (nearly) full ideas, as was the case with the Heli Pilot. We will be looking into ways to get the community involved with the game and game content, but that's likely to be once the game is out rather than during initial development.
How many [Daily Active] users does SAS4 web get compared to its best times?
About 20-25%


And that's all we've got this week folks!
