Questions from the comments: 


What happens to the bloons trapped in the engineer's bloon trap?
They are sucked into the Trap via link with a nearby blackhole. When they are sucked into the blackhole they are transported into another dimension, we then use the escaping hawking radiation to convert the lead containment box to gold for our currency using the power of alchemy.. I bet you can guess at who the lead scientist is in that engineering team. 

Yes you guessed it! The Boomerang monkey, obvious I know but still a fun fact.    

Ok, if I can't question monkey physics, I'll question monkey chemistry! What's the chemical makeup of corrosive glue?
Dr. Monkey claims that the written formula was destroyed in a freak lab accident and that he couldn’t risk sending us another copy as the Bloon spies might get a hold of it. 

Do any of you wish that the BTD6 community would stop hating on Adora?
We love that our community wants to express their feelings about heroes and encourage it. Plus for each ‘bad’ comment I’ve seen on Adora, I’ve seen a bunch of people saying they love her too! :) 

Would the monkeys eat other fruit than bananas if they were given the opportunity?
Who says they don’t now? 

Why do the heroes have different accents? Ben sounds Canadian, Obyn is clearly British, and Gwen has a sort of Slavic accent.
They are from different parts of the monkey world! 

What are Churchill's hobbies besides riding his tank?
He likes to play World of Tanks. 

is Gwendolin really fifteen years old
Gwen is 686 days old, which in monkey years, is around 6 years. 

is Benjamin still paired with Jessica
We like to let them keep some of their lives private. 

Y'know, it's been a long time since we had a switch up in our monkey team lineup, mind giving us some new teams please?
I’ll pass the request onto our events manager! :) 

You called pineapples monsters. Prepare to meet your doom.
Pineapples literally eat you back. 

Which member of the BTD6 team has been working on Bloons TD for the longest, and when did they start?
Would the design team count? If so, Chris and Stephen would be since they were the ones who started Ninja Kiwi and are still around and still working on BTD6 design choices. :) 

Are there gonna be any more updates to bmc now that its out on steam or will it receive the tower keepers and sas4 treatment? I'm reposting this post, because I love those games and I want to see them get some love again :)
We’ve already got some bug fixes on the way for Steam. With that in mind we’re still extremely focused on releasing major updates for our more popular games.

Which hero has the biggest wardrobe?
Quincy

When Benjammin goes home, does he yell "BENJAMMIN IS IN THE HOUSE" when he enters?
He absolutely does. 

What was the first game in the entire Bloons franchise you ever played?
Tarn - BTD Battles
Sav - BTD5! 

Why did the monkeys add a runway for Monkey Ace and Heli-Pilot? Monkey Ace worked well without runway in BTD4.
That you saw! Trust us, there were a lot of crashes… 

Why are there no left-handed monkeys?
Did you know that roughly only 10% of people are left handed? So it’s pretty rare! Also, because animating different hands to throw puts a lot more work on our artists. 

What does Gwen think of Frozen Over?
She’s not a fan of the cold. 

Wow I'm the first comment. Do I get to rickroll Ben?
You can absolutely try. 

Considering you say that the monkeys think the universe will explode like a balloon, does that imply balloons are different to bloons?
Yes. Absolutely. 

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
