Hey everyone! It's Tarn again, here to give you this weeks update and answer your questions :)


What's been going on this week?


Not much to report this week. The offices have been closed for the holiday period. Spending a well-deserved break with friends, family and loved ones.

Top 5 winners for the Primary Qualifiers race:

1st: notinth with a time of 2 min 26 seconds.
2nd: ISAB on 2:26.
3rd: SJB with 2:31
4th: SnowyOwl with 2:31
5th: Matthew Lim with 2:37

As the rewards for the Red White and Green race are still to be given out I can only list the current top 5. (This is the current top 5 and may be subject to change given the rewards haven’t been given out at the time of writing this.)

1st: SupremeAvocado with a time of 1m 50s 751ms

3rd: 66 with 1m 56s 134ms

**For those of you that will be competing in future races, it’s important to know that race rewards will be given about a day later, when the next race starts. So if you don’t see your race rewards straight away. Don’t panic :) It’s still coming.

Questions from the comments:


Have SAS 4 go on meltdown rotation. It's been pods for months. And about steam, it's very broken. It freezes costing you 100 mm when you try to do races and never loads a lot. Waste of money and if you ask me, freezes on purpose to take our time.
If you haven’t yet, head over to support.ninjakiwi.com and create a support ticket. We’ll do our best to figure out what is causing these freezes and to fix this issue!

Are you planning to add any of the old towers to BTD6 and if so which ones?
We’ve added the Mortar already. 

As painful as it might sound, do people still need to wait for Crafting to be added to the Steam version of SAS 4? I have no intention of relying on Luck to get the equipment that I want and every night so far zombies have been crawling around in my neighborhood. Must be the unfortunate ones who found out that Crafting isn't in the Steam version and became zombies from that revelation…
I’ll quote a previous blog post regarding moving crafting to Steam SAS 4: “I have to apologize to everyone who has put hours and hours into the game and character progress, but we can't commit those months of work, or rather we've chosen to apply that time to working on current projects. No, SAS5 is not in development yet but we are working on the design, and when we are ready we'll want the team ready to get cracking.”

Seriously, atleast make BTD 6 moddable. Bloons Conception people need their conceptions to be validated.
The problem with this is the competitive modes in BTD 6. Being able to mod and still compete in things like races is extremely unfair to players that don’t mod.

i saw someones question about the ui sise get answered "with how big" how about at least 1080p or 4k?
I’ve passed your suggestion on to the rest of the team.

how does the super monkey control when his laser and plasma vision shoot? it would be devastating if they were always on wherever he looked. it is linked to his brain, or is there some mechanism for it?

With the super high-tech goggles created specifically to utilize the full power of the Super Monkey. The laser and plasma vision will activate whenever there is a bloon in range that needs to be popped!

Is there only a 1rst place prize for blog contests, or are there also supposed to be 2nd and 3rd place rewards?
Depends on the competition. If you check again you should have your reward in your chosen game.

hey if ur a little...... oh i dont know crazy, insane or just plain weird how would u try to stay sane
Spend quality time with friends/family and do the things you love.

Any hints for 8.0? I know I'm being too impatient but that's just me.
You’ll just have to keep reading the blog :)

Happy Holidays, everyone!!!
Happy holidays!

Ninja Monkey or Boomerang Thrower?
Ninja Monkey for general gameplay. Boomerang Thrower because it’s awesome!


Enjoy the rest of your holidays!
