Questions from the comments:
Is it possible to Rick roll Ben?
Not easily. He’s memorized all the URLs…
What does Striker Jones think of Tsar Bomba?
It’s a real bommer that he doesn’t get to pilot it.
Could you tell us in what are you actually working? And... Are all of you still okay? :))
In houses and yes, we’re swell. Thanks for asking :)
How did Churchill get his scar?
He refuses to talk about it… What happens in tank, stays in his tank :D
What do the other heroes think when a new hero comes out?
I wonder if *new hero* can handstand as well as I can.
Where do the heroes get their haircuts?
Depend on the hero. Striker has a barber he goes to, Adora has a very fancy salon and Quincy does it himself.
How does the writer of the books know English then?
Probably learned it from somewhere.
Does Ben have a criminal record? His quote "rules are meant to be broken" implies that he uses his hacking powers for some... bad things…
That would require Ben to get caught.
If the heroes ever got a chance to play BTD 6, what would their favorite Monkey towers be?
Quincy - Son of Quincy
Gwen - Either Tack Shooter, Mortar or Boomerang.
Striker - Bomb shooter.
Obyn - Druids. Duh.
Adora - Top path Supermonkey
Churchill - Anything that gives him a tanktical advantage.
Ben - He’d strictly use Monkey Banks to keep learning their secrets and how he can continue hacking them.
Ezilli - Prince of Darkness.
Pat - Cave Monkey
How do Vengeful druids calm down after leaving the map (from completing a game mode)?
Yoga does wonderful things to angry souls.
The cypher from last week:
Answer: An echo. Congratulations to lucian1221 for getting the correct answer!
Have a great weekend everyone!
