Questions from the comments: 


Will tower skins (like in BTD5) come to BTD6? I'm not talking about hero skins, but for regular towers like Dart Monkeys. Speaking of hero skins, how can Quincy and Cyber/Ancestor Quincy be on one map? That comes to other heroes and their skins as well. Are they from different universes/timelines? (co-op)
It is something we have thought about but it would take a lot of time for our art team to do so there aren't any plans to do it currently. 

Will you ever add special missions to BTD6? It could be a cool way to get new heroes!
Maybe at some point!

is there any way the plan, that once you 100% in all categories, with all the excess MK points be converted into cash or something?
Probably not. 

What's been happening in your life? any plans for the future besides fixing and upgrading games?
Oh you know, bit of this, bit of that. Lots of plans!

Also about that dartling gun, will that ever come back
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I would really love to see a tower that moves anywhere on land, don't you think?
With the Support of the Chinook, you can move anything almost anywhere ;)

guess its my turn for an entirely pointless question... here goes: "How many Pats would a Pat pat if a Pat could pat Pats?"
If my math is correct on this one, in a great game of co-op 1 Pat can pat up to 2 other Pats and each Pat can pat with both his arms! So... arranged in a perfect circle, you can get 8 Pat pats by combining each Pats ability to pat 2 other Pats! With 1 Pat patting other pats at a rate of 1 Pat pat per second, you can expect all 4 Pats to dish out those Pat pats at a combined rate of 480 pats per minute!

Q: I have a question for you! If 4 Pats were patting other pats going a speed of 150 km/h, how many Pat pats would have been patted by the time you circumnavigated the Earth! Answer below! Sorry if this answer was Patronising…
A:  7,694,400! Pat pats would have been patted!

How can the temple float? I can believe that Pat is the only monkey around who knows how to swim but is the temple just made of yellow rubber duck material or something?
Or something.

why is pat so op
Pat isn’t an op? He is an ape!

Has Benjamin ever been arrested for hacking?
Not that we know of…

Why don't primary mentoring and primary expertise have buff icons when they primary training does?
We chose not to add it as we didn’t feel a need to re-clarify one buff getting slightly stronger in some cases, as opposed to something like MIB which actually adds a completely new effect in addition to radar scanner

does the beserker brew potions taste good at all? or are the monkeys forced to drink it?
It kind of tastes like a banana protein shake.

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
