Questions from the comments: 

Did monkeys copy the bloons? I just replayed Bloons and all the tricks were in the bloons' bag. The only thing the monkeys haven't since copied is that bouncy rubber…
Sometimes you have to use your enemies tricks against them

When will the next update about Bloons td 5 come out, if not secret?
We try not to discuss future updates or give specific dates just in case we have to delay it! We don’t want to disappoint our players. 

Why does the Spike O Pult monkey in Bloons Tower Defense 5 have no bandana?
The BTD6 versions got an upgrade. 

Whats the population of Quincville, city of Quincy

Why is there a rubber duck in the portable lake?
Why not? 

Why do the monkeys use primarily darts? They could use other projectiles like nails or needles.
Have you ever tried to throw a nail or needle? A lot harder than a dart! 

How do alchemists that buff the other monkeys think about them? Do they think of then like test subjects or do they want to help out the others? What do other monkeys think of buff giving alchemists?
It's a pretty healthy relationship, think of it as like someone handing you a water bottle in the middle of a high intensity sport, between rounds. The buffed monkeys appreciate the help and the alchemist enjoys helping them pop some bloons! 

Me thinks SAS 4 is in need of some maintenance. Christmas theme still enabled and Multiplayer currently does not work since 2nd of May, 2020 approximately 5pm central us time zone.
Our team is aware of the issue with multiplayer and are looking into it but have no ETA on a fix at this time. 

Has there ever been a bloon that has been known to betray his kind and help the monkey cause? If not, how would the monkeys even react? would this bloon just become a social outcast, hated and feared by the monkeys, and cast away for betrayal from his own?
We’ve never heard of a bloon defecting but we probably wouldn’t trust it. 

Will the steam version of BMC or any mobile to steam btd game will get a volume slider?
BTD6 does currently have this but at this stage, we aren’t planning on adding it in for any older games. 

How does the Permanent brew makes the brew effect "Permanent"?
They have a special ingredient they add but they won’t disclose that information. 

if Gwen is 686 days old, then how old is Quincy
897 days.  

what is obyn's favorite tv show
Anything on Animal Planet. 

Are hero skins just the heros having a fun time cosplaying or are they entirely different entities?
They are just different outfits! :) 

If you woke up one day and saw Bloons outside, what would you do?
Grab the darts! 

What is the backstory behind Gwen loving fire?
She just really loves it. 

Who would win? Cyber Quincy or Sentai Churchill. I vote for Sentai. Anime power!
Churchill does have a tank… 

How many total questions from the comments have you answered?
Not enough! Keep those questions coming folks! 

Are bloons created by the monkeys? and if so, what are the balloons created by?
The bloons were not created by the monkeys but balloons can be!

What were some of the silliest bugs you had to fix for btd6 (if you're fine with mentioning them)?
One of the office favourites was the Glaive Lord’s glaives having the wrong assets. 



Have a great weekend everyone!
