Questions from the comments: 


What's stopping Psi from popping a Golden bloon? Surely a hero who regularly obliterates MOAB-class bloons would have no issue?
Psi’s ways are truly mysterious.

Would a non-monkey hero (like the tack shooters or spike factories) be possible in the future?
Possible but unlikely. Heroes have to be packed to overflowing with character.

Since nothing gets past quincy’s bow, why not just leave it on the track so the bloons can’t get past it?
Well if it were just lying on the track it wouldn’t be Quincy’s bow then would it? It’d just be “bow on track”.

What's the best tower, and why is it Boomerang?
We see what you did there.

What will happen to BTDB1 once BTDB2 is released? Will BTDB1 still receive updates and server running? And are the teams for both games completely separate?
BTDB1 will continue to receive support for as long as it makes sense and as long as people play it! We’re definitely still putting time into BTDB1 balance and variety, but most new feature work will shift to BTDB2.

Will holding the send bloon button in mobile BTDB2 also work instead of repeatedly tapping it?
Yes!

Why are certain game modes restricted for public co-op?
An excellent question… maybe we should do something about that...

large caliber is large, but how large?
Larger than normal calibre. Significantly larger than small calibre.

What does Berserker Brew taste like?
We’ve heard it’s *demon voice* RAGE INDUCING!!!! 

Does the Ray of Doom's chair have a recliner seat, how far back does it go if it does?
Dr. Monkey says it’s his patented La-Z-Monkey technology but we’re not sure. Dartling tells us it is like relaxing on a cloud.

Is the Avatar of Wrath a pleasant monkey to be around? There are obvious issues with personality, but what about that lightning aura around it? Would that hurt?
Only if you are a Bloon. You wouldn’t want to be a Bloon around AoW but otherwise they are just like super pleasant and polite.

If you could fuse any two heroes together, Dragon Ball Z style, which two would you fuse, and what would their name be? Mine would be Benjienne.
You won’t trick us into talking ships that easily my friend!

Do you have any plans to add sas4 flash things such as ice station, meltdown, and bounty event to mobile? it would be nice if it happen.
is that all? will there be no more updates for sas 4? I would like to see web-level updates on mobile / steam.
The last content update won’t be the last update for SAS4 mobile. But, we do want to set some expectations here. The game is 7 years old, and while we love it, we also do want to develop other things. So this won’t be a return to the heyday of updates but we do want to keep adding cool things to the game. And at the same time, look to build new awesome in the SAS universe.

Why does Bloonarius looks way smaller than Lych?
Must be all the Bloons he keeps spewing out

do ice monkeys melt?
In summer? You are just trying to get us to start singing Frozen songs again.

Why did "SAS4 web" disappear from the blog weekend's focus information?
We cut down the list of things on the list so that it’s easier to see key information.

Is Adora the true sun god's daughter? or just a niece/cousin?
We’re not completely sure but we’ve heard their relationship is divine.

Will the Cobra and Bloonchipper be added to BTDB 2?
No.

why is the co-op daily challenge always on Cubism?
It's a good map

Do you think the monkey buccaneer has pirated anything before?
Even if Buccaneer Monkey pirates something, they’d still call it plundering. Mainly to throw off the feds.

Can the hero/tower pets get an update? Just saying that if you could pet them the game would be 10% awesomer.
That would be awesome and has been suggested before. Not currently in the plans but you never know! Another idea would be to have some of them as plushies, and then players could actually pet them. Perhaps we should run a poll...

what's the draw strength of Quincy's bow?
You’d want at least 19 Str to be able to even think about pulling that string back.

Are smudge(i assume ezilis cat) and pancakes(etns cat) friends?
Yes! BTW, Etienne thinks the community missed something in translation. In French the name is Crepe after all.


Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
