Questions from the comments: 


My week has been made by 3 extremely specific graphs about BTD6. Oh here’s one for next week: Do you track the amount of times each race is played? If so, I’d love myself another extremely specific graph about BTD6.
We do! 

If the super monkey is the leader of the Monkey Justice League, then what are the other members?
The concept of a Monkey Justice League assumes that there is injustice in the monkey world, which would then necessitate such a League. This assumption is in error. Monkeys live in blissful harmony with each other, without any strife based on origin, behavior, appearance, physical characteristics, socioeconomic status, or otherwise. The monkeys do have the relentless threat of Bloon invasion, but this is merely the hard, cold fact of existence in their world rather than an injustice.

What was your favorite reaction (like a youtuber) to a new feature or piece of content that got added? Did their reaction surprise you or were you hoping for the thing to make people react?
Bodil40 is still a favourite around the office (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA8VW6e8YqU)

I couldn't help but notice that the monkeys have their own writing system, any chance we could get a look at the whole alphabet? and maybe a possible translation?
Unfortunately, it's a closely guarded secret… 

Do monkeys invest in the stock market?
All they seem to invest in is Banana Republic :S

Have there been any incidents involving monkeys and hot air balloons?
In our world, we hope not, as that would seem quite precarious for the dear monkeys.

Which one is the youngest hero, and which one is the oldest?
Etienne and Striker! (for now at least…)

How do the monkeys inside the Monkey Banks profit even though they’re basically giving away free money once you withdraw their bank accounts?
Monkeys invest on quantum markets, so even a short amount of time with those deposits allows them to transact some crazy biz.

Do Lead and Purple bloons enjoy wearing special headwear? I feel like a tin foil hat fits questionably well with Purple bloons.
Enjoyment is not high on the Bloon motivational matrix. Most adornment is a haphazard and misunderstood attempt at camouflage.

Has Gwen ever tried to use a pressure washer?
Do pressure washers make messes and cause chaos? We’re pretty sure she has.

How good is every hero at drawing?
Ezilli is amazing at it, Sauda has really nice calligraphy and Pat… tries his best. 

how did the Angry sub get angry?
Ever been in a tiny sub? For, like ... ever?

What is Quincy’s biggest secret?
Don’t tell him I told you but… sometimes… things DO get past his bow…

The Ninja Kiwi Youtube has reached 100k subscribers. Are you considering some sort of giveaway or special event to celebrate it?
Keep an eye out for the next video for the channel! We may or may not possibly maybe perhaps do a giveaway. Maybe. 

How can Quincy's arrows ricochet from Bloon to Bloon? Did he ask Benjamin to provide him new arrows with advanced technology?
An ancient skill taught to him by his ancestor, Quincy.

may 8 is my birthday can I get a happy birthday
Happy Birthday!! :D May the 8th be with you!

What is the POPulation(haha get it) of the monkeys?
We don’t have an exact count but there are certainly monkeys in apundance.

Can we have a graph on how many people beat a map on chimps?
You can have ALL the maps

Can you do something about the btd6 glitch, when I played it, the home screen was weird
If you see any weird glitches, please report them to support so we can look into it! :) 

What happens to the bloons when they get popped?
This is a trick question, right? Or just an ontological exercise? Popped Bloons when popped are in the act of being popped, hence resulting in their poppage.

Would you guys answer "No" to this question?
Yes. 

Why did the role of battlefield support abilities get passed from the M.I.B. to "Monkey Command"?
That’s way above your security clearance, sonny.

why do the bloons wait till round 100 to send a bad why dont they send it round 3
It’s really slow

Why do Bloons Monkey City monkeys have such... interesting eyes?
The better to see you with, my dear.

Have you ever considered bringing btd6 to console yet?
We have definitely considered it, but don’t have anything to share right now.

Why do ETn's projectiles pop purple bloons when they are clearly energy based?
Material properties work very differently where ETn is from.

Witch Questions Do You Respond First The First Or Newest
We try to respond to as many as we can but the newer ones tend to get put at the top of the blog. 

will btd6 ever get linux support
It’s not currently in our development plans no.

Thank you for returning Tower Keepers browser version back to the site! I meant to thank you last week, but I was busy trying to make up for lost time. I hoped to FINALLY get the wand of Swiftness from the Gold Festival, but after 18 months it eludes me still… Well, back to the hunt.
Thank you so much to the TK community for being patient while we got this up and working again! If anyone sees any issues with it, please do let us know at support. You can find TK here: https://ninjakiwi.com/Games/Strategy/Tower-Keepers.html 

What are each of the hero's favorite desserts
Pat loves anything sweet, Etienne loves a good crepe (preferably with bananas), Adora quite enjoys cupcakes and Sauda loves birthday cake but we’re pretty sure that's just because she gets to wield the knife to cut it…  

Is Gwen's hair fluffy
Well. It’s on fire so we try not to touch it. 

How many arrows does it take for it to be called a storm of arrows?
I feel like five is a good answer

Why do the Heroes not like Ben's sushi that much? Is it because there isn't enough bananas?
Some heroes just don’t like sushi

How is your first few Months with Modern Times Group Going? I heard you are doing very well creating Bloons TD Battles 2? I hope it is good as the Original!
It’s going great! 

What happens to the cave monkey after the round ends? Where does he go? It would take quite a long time for him to become adjusted to everything in the current time period.
He curls back up in his ice, too many new things are confusing. 

Do Monkeys Know Which Round They Are In Currently?
They have a rough idea

Are medallions made out of some kind of banana-metal alloy?
Some say they’re made from the bananas which aren’t collected from Farms.

Do monkeys like chocolate? If so, then which one likes it the most?
Yes and most certainly Pat. 

What's the worst idea you've added?
Nothing! All of our ideas are amazing! 

Does grandmaster ninja better make better sushi than Ben?
They don’t call Ben the Iron Chef for nothing. Well, actually nobody except Ben calls himself that but hey.

Do you guys ever plan to stop updating the game? Or will you keep updating the game until a new one comes out?
We don’t really think about when we will be stopping updating our games and just focus on the cool new stuff we wanna add! There may come a day where we decide there's nothing more we can add and move on but that won’t be any time soon. 

Who trains monkeys?
The older monkeys! 

Why only release only half of the repopped album from Tim Haywood to the game? Jaloon remix is so good to be honest.
Fine, so you found Tim’s sneak peek. Props for that. It’ll all get into the game, little by little...

since arcane magic and nature magic and superpowers and gods exist in the Bloons universe, do mimics also exist? If yes, how troublesome are they?
ZOMG, don’t even get the weekend Dungeons & Bloons monkey players going on mimics. They will drama on for hours about carnivorous treasure chests. And of course there are the imposter Bloons in BMC, though not really that troublesome.

Is the city in the background of the btd6 menu Monkeyopolis?
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decree, where Alph, the sacred river, ran through caverns measureless to man, down to a sunless sea. Er … no.

Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
