Questions from the comments:
Who's ranked higher in the monkey Navy, the Navarch or Brickell?
Why did trophy store halloween limited items returned but christmas items did not?
These should be back now!
Is Obyn's wolf alive or dead since its called Obyn Ghost Wolf?
It's a spirit of nature.
what are lives?
What ARE lives? Too philosophical for us
Can we have map-specific music in Battles 2? I feel like random tunes playing on each takes away some of the maps' personality.
That can get boring in BTD6, which is why we introduced the jukebox. But we’ll take this under consideration!
Will the emote amount limit ever be increased?
No plan to increase it currently but “ever” is a strong word.
Seeing how it's the holiday season, I gotta ask two small questions (Pushing it, I know) 1. Who's the most festive person in the office? 2. Do you guys decorate the office at all?
Our Auckland office was recently flooded with over a foot of water so… it was decorated in mud for a while! But yes, normally we do try to put up some decorations around both offices this time of year. The Dundee office returning to life so definitely they win the festive award this year - fire burning on the big screen, trees, and festive jumpers.
Does a monkey version of he-man exists in the bloons universe, and if so does Adora watch it?
This is a peculiarly specific question! We’re not aware of any Monkeys who wander around shirtless constantly proclaiming “by the power of greyskull!” but we’ll keep an eye out.
Has Pancake and/or Smudge ever been called a "Monkey-Weight?" Where they park themselves on a monkey's lap and refuse to move for an extended period of time?
Since btd battles 2 came in late 2021 does that mean bloons monkey city 2 will come out late 2022
Sorry to say but no. We’ve discussed BMC2 quite a bit but it is not currently in production.
Does 1.0.1 and 1.0.3 have patch notes? Were they even a thing, or did you just jump from 1.0.0 to 1.0.2 to 1.0.4?
We haven’t posted all of the update notes for Battles 2 but you can find all the ones we do post here.
would btd6 (or any other btd game) ever get a workshop compatibility?
We’ve discussed this internally too but no plans currently.
if you need a strength score of 19 to even THINK of drawing Quincy's bow then how strong is he!?!?
What would happen if the ninja (who can already see camo) put on the sniper’s camo goggles? Would it be able to see through space and time?
It's more like when you put on your friends glasses and everythings blurry and give you a headache
If the heroes had DnD classes, assuming at least a couple play it or some variation of it, what would they be? And why would Ben be the Dungeon Master?
Oh no, you’ve found my weakness! DND nerd! At my table, Quincy is a ranger, Obyn is a druid, Psi is a monk and Adora is a cleric. As for Ben? He’s the DM because he’s behind the screen.
How do you guys get your amazing sound tracks!
You can thank our composer Tim Haywood!
tell tim haywood that the btdb2 music is AWESOME and all the other music he made for the bloons games is awesome as well :)
I will totally make sure he knows! Lots of love for Tim this week!
Is Tim Haywood part of the NK team or does he work in collaboration with the NK team?
He works in collaboration!
I'm worried with the release of btdb2 that btd6 will not be getting bigger things in updates anymore, i.e new heroes, new pets, or new towers. Will bigger updates still come?
Don’t worry! We have two different teams so both games will continue to get love. Also, 29.0 and the Navarch say hello!
Since Obyn and Pat have last names, what are the other hero's last name (first name in the case of Churchill and Brickell)?
They don’t all want to put their full names out there.
Why does Gwen throw tantrums as seen in her defeat animation in btdb2
She really hates to lose.
Are the small bloons and monkeys option gonna be added to BTDB2?
It’s pretty unlikely at this stage.
Have you guys ever thought of doing a series of shorts based on the Bloons cast?
Yes but it's not something we are planning on making at this point. :)
What is your favorite genre of games that NK hasn't made a game yet? (asking both Sav and Tarn)
The ones I win - Tarn
If the ray of doom chair is so comfortable, does the dartaling monkey ever fall asleep?
u/PU153_V01D had an amazing answer:Ever heard of... LOCKED TARGETING??? But come on, please stop being funnier than us.
does admiral brickell have legs
Yes??? Why wouldn’t she?
Are there any plans to modify the hero skins in BTD6 to act like they do in Battles? I really like the few changes made in Battles, and I think they could be a minor but interesting change to the BTD6 meta.
Not at the moment!
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
