Questions from the comments: 


Is it possible if the new "fix" for sas4 mentioned on discord is displayed in the forums and used to replace the recommendation to downgrade flash on the sas4 page since it's safer, easier to do and more accessible (no admin privileges needed) ?
If you can send it to me in a Discord message, we can look at it! :) 

Will BTD6 ever get a daily challenge archive, like in BTD5?
We would like to but we aren’t sure if or when that might be! 

With races becoming more popular, and people becoming better and better at them, is it possible to update the reward system to reflect different tiers than 1% or 10%? It kinda sucks to push for a top 10 or 25 finish when you know you get the same rewards for a top 100-200 finish.
We will take the feedback on and look at it! :)

The next MOAB-class bloon in BTD7 should be called a BLT.
What does BLT stand for?

Do you have any plans on continuing Endless Adventure?
Sadly not at this stage. 

Are the moab / bloon bosses considered divine figures of the bloon universe?
Just as much as the Sungod is!

Back when BTD6 released (over a year ago, crazy), Prince of Darkness was a different upgrade, Soulbind. Do you recall if it would have worked in CHIMPS mode or not?
Yes, it did! :) 

Can we expect some more maps from past bloons games added to BTD6? I myself would love to see old maps again in a newer style!
Maybe! 

What was Vortex doing in BSM2 Mobile while the other Boss Bloons were trying to stop Super Monkey?
Took a vacation, probably doing something evil. 

If the monkeys get money from popping bloons, where do the bloons get the money to send bloons like zomgs and bads? Also, is there any bloon-counterpart to Doctor. Monkey? They must get all their bloon-enhancing knowledge somewhere.
We aren’t sure, it’s something we are still trying to figure out! We must assume they do have one but who that might be or what that might be…. Who knows? 

how did the monkeys obtain the knowledge to create the VTSG?
Old ancient texts, found by our historian monkeys, gave us the secrets. They were pretty hard to get. 

I have evidence to contribute to Dr. Monkey! One time I sprayed a red bloon with my corrosive glue. It squeaked, and as it passed, it turned to me, and I could swear it was sad before it popped. Can you send this over there to the lab?
I tried to pass it on but Dr.Monkey won’t let us into the lab at the moment (Secret project of some kind). I left him a post it note though!

What happens when you're the first person to comment on a blog post?
You get a smiley face. :D. 

 

Have a great weekend everyone!

-Sav
