Questions from the comments:
What kind of haikus
Did the ninja monkey write?
I’d like to read them:D
There once was a Ninja all brown
Whose haikus were the talk of the town
They scribbled all day
While Bloons leaked away
And the player then lost every round
How can the Sun Avatar see where the Bloons are while it's firing glowing sunbeams from its eyes?
While your mortal vision may not pierce those glowing sunbeams, rest assured that the Sun Avatar can most definitely see through them like clear water.
What is the equivalent of Acidic Mixture Dip in our world?
Dip made of an Acidic Mixture. Salsa basically, but don’t tell the Bloons that.
I do remember seeing some old games on the App Store such as Bloons 1 and Hot Air Bloon. What happened to them? I wanted to play the mobile versions of these games.
Sadly, newer devices and operating systems started to outgrow these games to where they couldn’t run, and since they’re much older titles, we made the decision to remove them. Both Hot Air Bloon and the original Bloons are still playable for free in the Ninja Kiwi Archive on Steam though!
can we have random monkey mascot towers that don’t do anything but look cool?
New tower buddies! Maybe someday.
Is there any reason why the Super Monkey needs special goggles for both Laser and Plasma vision as opposed to before in BTD1-3 where he didn't use them?
Over time Super Monkeys have become much stronger. The goggles help to contain the awesome power
Will more stickers be added to the iMessage BTD6 extension?
We’re not planning on it at the moment.
Will btdb2 have any towers that btd6 didn’t have (like how btdb1 had cobras)?
Not at launch but it isn’t something we have totally ruled out.
Do you ever plan on making previous versions of btd6 avaliable to play on a private server and if not why?
We don’t intend to as older versions can have game breaking features and could cause issues for player data.
Favourite and least favourite upgrades?
I’m a sucker for a 205 Tackshooter but almost never use 005 Village but that may just be my player preference!
What do Buccaneers and Sub Monkeys think about Brickell’s leadership?
We haven’t heard of any dissent within the ranks!
What happens when you give a acidic mixture from 2-X-X alchemist to Pat Fusty?
He becomes Pat Funsy
Which one is the "bigger brother:" Lych or Bloonarius.
Bloonarius, Lych is kind of like the weird cousin.
Why was the camo targeting feature added? Was it a round-about way of buffing counter-espionage?
We talked about this a bit in the updates notes for 28!
Instead of saying the same thing each time; many specific crosspaths that add a ‘camo specialty’ to a tower end up being viewed as rather inferior crosspaths due to camo being quite available to pick up through other methods. To give these upgrades more use even with other forms of camo reveal in play, we have added a brand new Camo Prioritization option that is added to the towers when taking this crosspath. When enabled this filter combines the selected target method with Camo Prioritization (e.g. Strong Camo would work through all Camos in strength order, then revert to normal Strong until any new Camos show up). Individual Monkeys are called out below.
Can the word AMA refer to "ask monkey anything"?
We’d have to ask the monkeys during their AMA.
will you add new heroes in bloons pop, speaking of bloons pop, i want to make fanart of ace and zed so bad >_<
Maybe one day and do it! Draw all the fanart! (I feel I may regret saying that later)
Is there a special place we can submit fan work to be hopefully showcased on the blog, or is it completely chance?
We primarily look at the fanart posted on the BTD6 Reddit so best bet is to place it there with the “fan creation” label. :)
How cool is the future Ice Monkey paragon gonna be?
What’s cooler than being cool? Ice Cold?
Can we have a game mode in btdb2 where we can send boss ballons
There are no plans for such a game mode at the moment!
will there ever be a switch port of BTD6
We’d love to do it but it isn’t something we are currently working on as we’ve got enough on our plate just right now.
People in the community, especially on the BTD6 subreddit, are having a field day with shipping and relationships. Are there any canon romances or crushes in the BTD6 line-up that we should know about?
Striker Jones has some pretty strong canon feelings
How does Lych absorb Time Stops?
Lych can’t :) (anymore)
How many things in btd6 use rng, now that things like chinook's supply drop have been made consistent?
Rng is the bane of co-op but there are things like lightning that are seeded formulaics.
may i hug the monkes
Will Elite And Normal Boss Leaderboards be posted on the blog eventually?
Probably not at this stage as there are a lot of them and would make the blog very bulky!
How did harmless little range upgrade made the base of path of vengence poplust and wrath for an nature loving druid monkey
Well you give the druid more _range_ to express himself with right? Right?
when gwen isnt burning stuff what does she do?
Planning how to burn stuff. And also reading.
What is the name of Gwendolin's firefox
Mo Zillah. But most call her Sparky.
Why does the free dart monkey not care when you leave him un-upgraded the whole game?
They are just happy to chill out
Do you guys at NK have any plans for a dedicated late game mode for BTDB2? I was really bummed out when your video mentioned a max round of 50. Late game was always one of my favorite things to do in BTDB1.
We totally understand the calls for late game, but we’d encourage you to reserve full judgement until you’ve actually played the game. Anything above round 30ish in Battles 1 was generally considered late game and B2 will be a new game entirely, so we’ll monitor feedback closely once it’s out in the wild :)
What are the heroes dressing up as for halloween?
Bloons. We must report they got more tricks than treats.
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
