Hey everyone! It’s Sav and Tarn here for this weeks blog! :D


What's been going on this week?


BTD6 has received a new update today for Android and Steam, with a brand new map, a skin for Obyn and the new Easter collection event! You can see the full patch notes here.

However, this new update is not available on iOS yet due to a delay with Apple’s approval system for updates. Please do not switch between your devices that do have 10.0 and your Apple devices as this could cause issues with your data or game and may result in lost data. We are very sorry for the delay and are working to get this approved as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience! Due to this though, there will be no race this weekend.

Questions from the comments:


What’s inside a spike factory that gives it nearly unlimited spikes?
We just get a bucket and pour them in. Just like, a lot of them though.

Will Bloons Monkey City Mobile receive any updates in the future, or is it pretty much done in terms of adding new content? I recently got back into it and was just wondering.
At this stage, we aren’t planning on updating BMC with new content as our teams are currently focused on other projects.

Will Engineer ever be a tower in btd6?
We’ve definitely got plans to release more content and towers into the game, if the Engineer is going to be included in these plans, well, you’ll just have to ask Dr. Monkey.

So when will I get my Dartling Gunner? My boy needs to be busted out and he's hiding somewhere in the far corners of Steam.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Is there a new game with more Awesome Points in the making? If yes, when will it launch?
Ninja Kiwi no longer makes Flash games so while we will continue to support the games on our site, we won’t be adding new ones any time soon. :)

Why do descendants of the True Sun God listen to us insignificant humans on where to go on the battlefield? If Bloons are willing to kill poor little monkeys, why are they so civilized that they follow a path when trying to kill us?
Who is to say they’re listening to us? They might be the higher power controlling our thoughts and just making us believe we’re the ones in control! Also, we never said the Bloons were smert…

And that's why everyone loves Tarn!
Let’s take this out so it doesn’t end up in the blog.

If we can't get fighter camp in TK, despite the fact it was supposedly almost complete months ago, can we at least always have Gem Master event on at the same time as the Guild Boss? It and gold event are the only events some of us can even do, and a lot of us don’t spend gems on anything but the boss, even if there is an event up. So yeah... since both of those are probably going to keep cycling around, it'd be preferable at best or neutral at worst for basically everyone if they can just always be on together.
Valid point. We’ll look at syncing them up to cross paths every once in a while.

I see you have a new contest, yet you still haven't given a winner his promised prize from almost seven months ago. I understand that you have to follow the money but I also saw one of your employees say that the campaign he had entered was nearly complete. Why can't you get someone to finish it up and then you can put TK on the back burner again? Doesn't seem unreasonable to me. The way you have been dragging your feet and making excuses does not look good for Ninja Kiwi. Do the honorable thing and give the man his well deserved prize!
There have been a number of contests since the Fiter campaign one and I can safely say that every winner since has received their well earned prize. It just so happens to be that some prizes take a little longer to prepare than others. We’re not pulling the plug in any way shape or form, it’s simply been delayed while we focus on Easter.

As for my question, how do Bomb Shooters know when there's a bloon to shoot at? Unless they're controlled by an invisible monkey…
If you believe in fate then you will know that all actions are predetermined and we’re all being controlled and manipulated by an external force in one way or another. That is of course, if you believe in fate.

Why hasn't there been a Festival of Bloonstones event in BMC in a long time?
I sense good things coming your way.


 

Thanks for the amazing entries folks! We had some good laughs reading them.
