Questions from the comments:


If bottom path sniper is elite defender, and middle path is elite sniper, why is top path sniper not also elite to complete the trio of eliteness?
His skills just aren’t that 1337

Why is the AOTVM so Vengeful? And where did it come from?
Have you seen those metal pants? Better question is where did those pants come from, because Lizzo wants some.

In the Very Very Frightening results why did TobiBloon439 place 5th instead of tied for 4th? There is no difference between 2mins 8.1 secs and 2mins 8.10 secs.
Sorry, we should have completed the time! TobiBloon439 got 2m 8s 101ms while Skibimi got 2m 8s 17ms. 

Why are sub commander's legs so short?
Are any of the monkeys legs long?

Do you double-check the user submitted BTD6 challenges to make sure they're possible before you put them up?
Yes, we do! :)

Why don't I have any hot chocolate?
Here you go:

How is that Pat's hands don't get hurt after slamming his hand on Bloons so many times, does he even feel it?
He has healing hands. That’s why he gives the best hugs.

It is a fact that the bloons multiply, and multiply, until every resource is consumed. The only way for them to survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern... a virus. Does this mean that bloons can reproduce like the X Parasites from Metroid Fusion by infecting other things before bursting out of the corpse like a multitude of viruses erupting from an infected cell?
I really, really hope not. 

Is there an even powerful bloon we haven't even met yet? If so the monkeys would have to prepare.
There may very well be. 

Do player-made suggestions for new content (such as Buddy Bloon) have a chance at making it into the game?
They do, though it’s very rare as we do have our own ideas which we tend to use first. Don’t let that put you off submitting your awesome ideas, though! 

Fellas, what if the bloons actually want to be popped? I mean they're just gonna deflate and wither away anyway so why not get popped by these monkeys? like also if the monkeys fail is that why bloons get upgraded? did they all start as just a couple colors and then become more powerful simply through not dying? like is a BAD a red bloon that has just been so unsuccessful at being popped that it's this gargantuan thing now?
I’ll send your theory to Dr. Monkey. He may be interested in this idea…. 

Do all the Bloons games (Original Bloons, Tower Defense, Super Monkey, etc) take place in the same universe?
Dr. Monkey has plotted the possibility of at least 14,000,605 parallel universes so the very notion of “sameness” is suspect. On the surface of it, though, yes...ish.

How do towers placed in the pot on carved stay in place when the pot jumps up?
They just hold on real tight

Can I has cheeseburger?
I think I just teleported back to 2003

Where are the mechanical-based towers like the Spike Factory and Tack Shooter made?
You haven’t played enough Monkey City apparently...


 

Have a great weekend everyone!
