Questions from the comments:
Is Battles 2 planned to get more heroes besides Gwen, Obyn, Striker, and Quincy?
The plan is to launch with the original four heroes, but similarly to BTD 6, we’ll add to the lineup over a series of updates! The interesting thing for Battles 2 is that the skins will be true Alt Heroes - but more on that later!
Any other game plans after btdb2? At this point I don't trust the "we have no plans for it yet" line so you better cough something up
You are wise to us, well done. In all truth we are doing our best to give more heads up about what we’re working on, but only after it has passed internal tests and is truly in production, as otherwise it’s distracting to the community and to us. Right now there’s nothing else to announce - there is one original IP in proof of concept technical testing but we won’t answer any questions about that until we’re ready to announce it.
When you rearrange the letters in "Sav" and "Tarn" you get the word tavarns. Am I safe to assume that this is a definitely intentional reference to the upcoming taverns game mode in btd6 featuring the alchemist?
We did get hired on the same day… coincidence?
Why didn't the Ice Bloon from Bloons return for Bloons Pop, when the Tack Bloon and Bomb Bloon did?
We definitely have not ever not thought about not including an ice mini-powerup bloon. Ever. Not.
I would like to see a chart showing how many times each one of the btd6 towers has been used among all of the btd6 players
Dart monkey is the most used tower but banana farms are used more on average when they are used!
Do Insufficient bananas make Monkeys very angry?
It’s hungry work popping all those Bloons!
Do you have plans to bring back the COBRA tower in BTD 6?
The COBRA was specifically designed for PvP gameplay, so we won’t bring it to BTD6 or any other games. We like some things about the Cobra, and that might inspire something, but certainly not an IAP tower.
Can all Super Monkeys fly, or is it an ability that only the BSM Super Monkeys have?
All of them! You can see them float in Bloons Pop! as well.
Am I allowed to blame anything I want on the bloons?
Within reason. We tend to blame code bugs, sick days, and fire drills on the Bloons.
what's ninja kiwi's favorite food?
Pizza! No wait, hot dogs! Wait no, cake! Hmm… can we get back to you?
When will new maps become available in Bloons Pop?
We’re working on our next content update but can’t share any date on that yet.
Why is monkey tycoon In bloons pop very old, and when are you going to update bloons pop
Because and soonish
Is vengeful true sun god or avatar of the vengeful monkey the correct name?
No :) but that’s what users seem to have decided upon due to previous games
Is Gwen capable of getting brain freezes?
Now that you mention it, I don’t think she ever has…
Why is obyn's fur blue
Because it’s bluetiful
can you guys give the boomerang monkey a kangaroo or koala pet?
A little kangaroo would be so cute!
What is the relationship of Striker Jones and Captain Churchill aside from military related?
They hang out sometimes, usually to play cards. They both have great poker faces.
Is the Ice Monkey fragile? Would it break into pieces if you hit it with a hammer?
I’d be more worried about the hammer.
Why do you have to pay the monkeys in Bloons Pop Bloonstones and Monkey Money in order to bring them back to town? Shouldn't they just be relieved that their town is being restored and come back on their own?
They don’t expect payment, we just like to reward them.
Will the boss Bloons from BTD5 make their appearance in BTD6.
Are there any canonical ships of btd6 heroes?
The Monkey Buccaneers sail in them all the time! As does Admiral Brickell. Make of that what you will.
If Bloonstones are solidified Bloontonium, wouldn’t that make them dangerously radioactive?
Dr Monkey assures us it's safe! Wait, Tarn, don’t drop that!
Are there any current plans to make a bloons tower defense 7 in the future? It wouldn’t make sense to just stop when the franchise is at an all time high.
Not at the moment! We are still totally focused on BTD6. :)
Thoughts on something like fanmade dungeons and dragons homebrew stuff?
If you ever make homebrew Bloons dnd stuff, please send it to us! A whole bunch of us love Dungeons and Dragons!
Any plans for merch in the near future? I could always use more monkey and bloons related content on my shelves
We have merch! :D You can see it here: https://store.ninjakiwi.com/
You said there were tons of puns so bad they couldn't be put in the game. Could you put them here?
No. They should never see the light of day.
Does ben ever engage in a little bit of trolling?
Is Banana Suit considered a deity? Because they seem to be in a position of reverence among the community.
They may become one…
Who flies the tiny Fighter Planes launched by Aircraft Carriers?
Tiny fighter pilots
What map are you guys the most proud of? (out of any Bloons game)
Oh there are so many! I know there are some that the artists are more proud of because of how pretty it is and then there are others like Sanctuary or Geared which was a new mechanic and took a lot of work so let's just say all of them!
Will there ever be merging in BTD6? Basically can we have Monkey mechs?
Monkey Mechs! That would be awesome. We already do some merging, if you think about the TSG that way. But it is an interesting idea, something like combining a couple Tier 5s, or all 3. That would be cool, so we’ll do some thinking on that.
Would you ever add more primary towers or is the point of them being the older monkeys?
We might! Primary is just a category.
How are the black bloons and camo bloons immune to mortars?
Special rubber properties.
Is the dart monkey average monkey size. If so, how tall is the average monkey?
About 8 monkey hands.
What made you pick exploding pineapples? As far as I’m aware they do not generally explode.
Generally! But have you ever left a pineapple just sit there for too long on the bench with other fruit that doesn’t go in the fridge because you bought it when pineapple was on sale thinking I’m going to eat some of that yummy pineapple but then life got in the way and gosh skinning pineapple is time consuming and sticky so you just kept leaving it thinking you’d do it the next day and then the top got brown and purpley spots started appearing and the gnats started buzzing around and then you tried to pick it up and BOOOM? Could happen, just saying.
will banana man be added to any other btd games?
I want them in every game if I can…
Bloons Pop has bloonstones and bloontonium. NK are you making BMC2 or something?
We are not. But Dr. Monkey is getting around these days.
What do you think of my profile photo?
We have something in common... my avatar in the work channels! (By u/Grape_Bro, original post here)
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
