Questions from the comments:

Raz should be thrown in jail for using a 2-0-5 spike factory
We tried. He used a Perma Spike to escape.

How old is Obyn? I bet he is as old as the forests and oceans because he is the guardian of them.
Wisdom and responsibility are not always governed by age.

How does Obyn place his Wall of Trees on water (and how does Ocyn place the Wall of Tentacles on land)? And will BTD6 get translated to more languages?
Magic. At this stage, no more languages will be added.

2-0-3 boomer or 0-2-3 boomer?
2-0-3 looks way waay cooler.

On a scale of Quincy's foot to Quincy's bow, how much do you like Quincy's teeth?


Wait does that mean that in an alternate future, monkeys dominate the globe and are defending their homeland from bloons from space? That would explain the portal in BATTD…
Anythings possible in an alternate reality! That would also mean, nothing is possible in an alternate reality.

2nd question well ever be a sale or a free download for btd 5 and btd 6?
Both Bloons TD 5 and Bloons TD 6 have been either free or on sale previously, so it may happen again. However, we cannot guarantee it.

question well ever be a new update for btd 5 on flash that would be cool
Nothing is in the works at the moment. BTD 5 mobile is a different story :)

Ever thought of having quests for BTD5 that envolve "parts", like completing part 1 unlocks part 2? Maybe they would be harder challenges?
This type of quest system is very common and was considered, along with many other different ways when Bloons TD 5 was being developed.

when is the next update? been waiting for a while now
With co-op in the mix, we’re making sure we’re completely happy with the state of the update before we release it. We have been working extremely hard and are all very passionate about what co-op means for the game so we’re taking our time making sure it’s as awesome as it possibly can be.

Are the monkeys prepared for a zombie apocalypse?
Are you?

Another year already? I'm gettin old!
Old age is just a record of one’s whole life.

Hey, you'd have to lock me up as well because I also use a 2-0-5 Spike Factory. By the way, would it be possible to update BTD6 so that there is an easy mode thing where only support towers can be deployed (kinda like how there's already one for only Primary, Military, and Magic towers)?
Additional sub-modes could very well be something that we look at adding in the future. For now, making a entire sub-mode just for support wouldn’t be all that fun to complete on every single map as you can only use spikes.

How does the BTD6 challenge selection work? Do you have a team that looks through all of the hundreds of submissions you get every day or are they all queued automatically?
There are a few of us that get together and go through the submitted challenges.

Cake or bananas?

Was my question left unanswered because you guys are hiding something? :eyes:
We don’t answer every single question in the comments but to answer your previous question:

“What were some cool upgrades/alternate upgrade designs that were considered but ultimately scrapped?” - The alchemist's attack rate was initially limited by how many potions it had in its belt. It would slowly brew potions over time, then when it started attacking would throw from this stockpile. So essentially you'd place it near the back so it would have time to build up ammo otherwise the attack rate would be much slower.

"You’ll never guess what happens next..." Monkey throws a dart and pops the bloon, the explosion of the bloon - The Big Bang Theory. Simple
If you go back to the very early stages of the monkeys and their darts, you may find that their knowledge and craftiness was rather lacking. Early reports of discovered darts are rumored to be nothing more than sticks and stones. One can only hope that the enemy bloons were slower during those times. 

What is Cassie from BATTD's favourite colour? Also, does Dart Monkey celebrate Christmas? If yes, then what is on Dart Monkey's Christmas list?
Blue, like the sea! Dart Monkey would probably love a golden dart or a signed picture of Supermonkey.


That’s all folks. Have a good week and enjoy this picture of Smudge.
