Questions from the comments: 


With the towers chart from the blog from 4/8, engineer and mortar has the less uses. Is there anyway to make them stronger or maybe rework them cause they need more love?
Total uses are only a small part of the picture, there are a lot of other factors contributing to this and in regards to the Mortar a big part of this is that even though some of the upgrades are actually incredibly good, for example The Biggest One and Shattering Shells, they are not designed in a way that encourages using another mortar in the same game. The middle path on the other hand did feel like it was underperforming at the time this data was shared, which is part of what lead to it receiving the buff it did in 17.0. 

Hello, I know you are no longer supporting the SAS games but I think you can help me to some extent. I've already tried contacting the support of the SAS 3 mobile game and I've got no response so far. I also cannot use the forums to post for some reason. Anyway the issue is I've made an account to SAS 3 mobile with the correct email but I havent received any message through email to confirm my account 2 days counting now and apparently I have 3 days left to do so. I also lost my older account of sas 3 mobile with no way to recover it's password. This email problem seems general and not just me since I've tested making another account with another email and haven't received a confirmation message neither with it.
Sadly, we don’t have access to the SAS3 account system so you will need to contact AMT! :(

Sorry we can't be of more help!

Can you rickroll Ben with a shortened URL?
Hypothetically. Would I want to try though and risk his wrath? No thanks. 

What's that weird gap in the middle of the heroes chart?
Just a day that didn’t track properly! :) 

Thanks for the laugh Sav or Tarn, I got a kick out of that answer to the nerfing question. :D
Tarn’s a comedic genius. 

Why does the Cave Monkey get frozen back after finishing a game?
He just likes to chill. 

Is there a canonical reason that the monkeys follow the bloons when they start to get out of range?
It really depends on their priorities.

I bought the hero booster for science. Should I regret it?
Never regret anything you do for science.

What do the Heroes do in their free time? What do the monkeys eat besides bananas and pineapples?
Ben likes to work out, Obyn goes hiking a lot, Ezili likes to curl with her cat and read a book and Quincy practises his aim.
Pineapples explode!! Why would any sentient, dart-throwing Monkey eat one of those monsters?

What is the exact force that Pat has when he uses Big Squeeze?
If we use (F)=(m) x (a) then we can quite easily figure out that the amount of (F)orce used is = (m)assive x (a)cceptable = enough. 

Do all the hero's have their own back story?
Yep!

"The world as you know it will cease to exist." Wait you saying if the bloons get through, the entire universe explodes?
Some Monkeys think it will, like a balloon. Dr. Monkey has good data that it will implode.

How does glue slow down bloons if it's not attached to another surface?
Monkey physics is not to be questioned! Quantum glue, clearly.

When you sell a monkey, where do they go?
Home, after passing “Go” and collecting $200 Monkey Money.

If the BTD6 Heroes made their own cities what would they name them?
Pats is Hugland, Adora would dedicate hers to the Sun God and Quincy would name his ‘Quincville, City Of Quincy.’ 

What video games do the heroes like?
Ben loves MOBA’s! 

Are there going to be games for the website made anymore, or is all new content going to be for mobile?
The website is getting harder and harder to maintain for Flash games, and we are not making any more games specifically for browser. We are looking at ways to preserve our awesomer Flash game library, and we will definitely keep Steam games coming for PC and Mac. We are looking at how some of the more recent games might become playable on ninjakiwi.com, but that is just a discussion and a long way off.

Have a great weekend everyone!
