What’s been going on this week?

Phew, it’s already February everyone and with the new month, BTD6 has just released another update for iOS and Android with a whole bunch of new stuff in it! A vroomy map, a new skin for Churchill and a whole bunch of balance changes and bug fixes! You can find the patch notes here!

There won’t be any races this weekend while we get all platforms released (as we don’t want unfairness from some with balance changes and others without), but don’t worry, all of us little monkeys are working hard on getting the update ready for Steam and races will be back after that. A small number of Android users have also run into some crashing and graphical issues which our team are aware of and are working on a fix! We hope to have that patched up by early next week. Thanks for your patience everyone!

Questions from the comments:

Will there be another BTD6 update soon? And will it fix the glitch that happens on steam where bloons are visually cut in half and the round wont change?
Yes! The new update is not out for Steam yet but it does fix this bug on iOS and Android.

Why do the bloons give you money for popping them? Are the monkeys poachers who sell bloon skins? Maybe the reason bloons give less cash the further you go is because you're flooding the market?
We went to talk to Dr. Monkey about these fine questions, but he was away for his daily hot pilates workout, so we took the opportunity to rifle through his desk, files, and heavily encrypted computer files (drmonk3yrox). While we didn’t find definitive answers we did see a scribbled formula for polychloroprenetrirotherringium on the back of an overdrawn bank account notice folded together with racing forms and a past due bill for monkey hair cream. We found this inconclusive but we’ll share it with you in the hopes it might make sense to someone.

What are btd6 trading cards?(I play on mobile)
Trading cards are something Steam offers for all games. They are virtual cards, earned by buying and playing games on Steam, that can be crafted into badges that grant rewards.

In the Quincy's New Year's Resolution post we discovered that the monkeys have feelings. What about the bloons, do they have feelings?
It depends on whether you consider being self inflated by the lust for total monkey domination feelings.

Why are white bloons considered a higher rank than black bloons, if an explosive immunity protects against far more sources of damage than a freezing immunity does?
White bloons are actually the exact same as black bloons! They have the same health and ranking so they aren’t a higher rank. Listen to some Paul McCartney for goodness’ sake.

How long do you guys plan to continue adding content to BTD5 flash?
Planning for flash is a dark art and we only practice dull gray arts, but we’d like to keep doing new maps for as long as we can.

Will you add Bagel to btd6?
How could you want to submit such a precious baby to the evilness of the bloons? D:


Have a great weekend everyone and happy gaming!
