Questions from the comments:
So how in the world can Sauda create 8 copies of herself (using level 10 ability on Balance)? Or are they not even Sauda but just doppelgängers
She just moves that fast
I have a question. What was the last BTD6 tower to be fully implemented before the initial release of BTD6? I know it’s been a long time since we had gained Mortar, Engi, and Dartling, but I’m curious to see what the final tower to become fully ready to use in the game.
They were mostly all worked on at the same time, though the one that probably caused the most trouble was the Village.
How does sushi hack Bloons? Are they allergic or something?
Those rice grains just go everywhere.
What are your current thoughts on the meta in btd6? Are you happy with the current state of balancing? Any towers you plan on changing, either buffs or nerfs? Thank you guys for being awesome as always! :)
We are constantly monitoring game data and looking on what we could improve on! But we are pretty happy with it currently.
What’s Striker Jones’ last name?
Btdb2 release date or more info?
It is in production and you have to pop bloons but that's all we can say!
Btd6 has an odyssey mode, but will it ever have an iliad mode?
Well, we have to think of what that would be now!
How do you feel when people exploit unbalanced things in your games, especially BTD6?
There is nothing to exploit as the game is perfectly balanced of course :D
When will ninja coins be available to purchase again?
You can purchase them now!
i wonder you can add a new hero like a beekeeper? why not redesign that bear guy with a swarm of bees?
We do love the BTD5 Beekeeper that’s for sure, and you never know what the future holds but for now we don’t have any plans of bringing him back.
Are all of the games going to require download or Steam?
All the Flash games will require you to download the Archive, either through Steam or our website. :)
Any plans for more future towers?
We will do more towers! What are those plans though? No idea yet!
What's up with bionic boomer's bionic arm changing hands with the "change hands" thing? Visual bug, or EXTREMELY revolutionary technology from the Monkey Engineers?
Nanotech, it’s always nanotech.
imagine ben pianist skin... is ben a good pianist??
He may have to be....
Will balance changes to towers in BTD6 affect towers in Battles 2 once it's out?
They will be completely separate games so balance in one won’t affect the other!
Will there be a Boss Bloon at the end of each Odyssey?
We’re loving Odyssey mode just the way it is right now and aren’t planning on changing it at this stage.
How do I upvote comments with the new system?
There are no upvotes on the comments anymore.
Why is Special Poperations’s icon a recolored Elite Defender and not, say, a cropped version of Marine’s in-game art? Is it something from beta that nobody ever bothered to change or is it for some other reason?
They studied at the same military academy under different branches
how will the cobra and bloonchipper be added into btd battles
They are already in BTD Battles! ;)
What would you do if one of your Monkeys got invited to Super Smash Bros.?
Sharpen their darts for them!
How advanced is the monkeys' space technology? Will they be capable of interplanetary travel in the relatively close future? ...where did they even get space technology from? They're monkeys that live off farming and eating bananas!
You would have to ask Dr. Monkey but he may be a little offended you called him a farmer…
Will you continue to make a hero every few months or will you experiment and new towers? Also will you focus on regular updates or make bigger game-changing updates every once in a while?
New towers are something that we wouldn’t be able to do every few months as each one requires a huge amount of work and balance to make sure it doesn’t throw off the whole game! We want to make sure we take our time with them and not rush something we aren’t happy with. :)
Lots of cool stuff for Bloons! But, are there any new series coming to us or is it just continuations of SAS and Bloons? Also, do monkeys enjoy peanut butter and banana sandwiches?
We may do new games in the future but we cannot say for certain! And most of them do! Some are deathly allergic to peanuts.
Can you confirm BTD Battles 2?
What is Benjamin's most favorite type of sushi?
Have you ever considered a short animation or series for the Bloons games? like clash-o-rama from supercell that based it off of their game
Not really as we feel it would take away time from working on our games!
Will the in-dev BTD Battles 2 be more similar in towers and upgrade paths to BTD6 or to the old BTD Battles? Us veteran players need to know before we get popped out of the meta!
You will just need to wait and find out!
So, what was with that Battles leak in the Sauda update vid?
No idea what you mean….
What is Sauda's preferred blade?
How does professor evil achieve such mischievous things as being able to send bloons earlier?
Probably copied COBRA.
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
