Questions from the comments:


is there a way to pick regular banana farmers over robo farmers in btd battles? I don't really want to waste my robo farmer when it would be right next to my farms.
Sadly not, you will always use your Robo farmers first. 

what is your favorite 5th tier (mine is permacharge btw)
I love the Archmage! 

Why the Crossbow Master, doesn't have a white version?
We have had quite a few requests for this! It is something we would like to do but we have no plans to add it at the moment. 

How does Tarn & Sav answer so many questions without going nuts?
We love answering questions from our players! :D 

Just what is the Vengeful Monkey? Does it come from the same place as the Sun God? Is it a higher being or something else?
We put it solidly in the ‘Something Else’ category. 

What are some interesting stats you could share? Like, what is the most used tower, or how much monkey money has been spent in total?
Earlier this year, we made our 1 year anniversary video which included some pretty cool stats! Like 87,751,371 hours played! See the video here for some more!

Why does placing a dart monkey requires money? Aren't they fight for their kingdom/world? So why would it cost money? Also, how does it work when a bloon is popped, money is earned?
They are but that doesn’t mean they can’t be paid for their hard work! When a bloon is popped, the rubber is broken down and repurposed, generating cash.  

Why did spike-o-pult go from being its own tower to a dart upgrade?
It was better to have them controlled by dart monkeys, more precise. 

What kind of element are the gems in TK made of?
Wishmorepeopleplayedium

What kind of music do the monkeys listen to?
Pop music. 

Why do some monkeys wear clothes and some don't?
Personal choices. Why do some people prefer pants to shorts?

What does Quincy do in his free time?
Practises with his bow. 

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
