Questions from the comments: 

When using trade empire, I noticed that when placing a buccaneer, it shows the number of merchant men affecting the outcome. Yet, when I select a merchant man, it only shows x1 on the trade empire effect, as opposed to the other stacking abilities like poplusts or shinobis. Plz fix ;-;
Our team is aware of this and are looking into it! 

If I submit a challenge in BTD6, how long should I expect to wait before I might see my challenge as a daily/advanced challenge?
You may not ever see it. We get hundreds of challenges submitted to us every day and our team can only see and test out so many challenges! 

Where do the monkeys come from? Are they brought in exotically or what?
Nope, we are in their world and they are defending their homes! 

whats your favourite hero Sav and Tarn... mine is Adora.
Sav - I like Obyn or Adora! 
Tarn - Ezili

Admiral Brickell has many things in common with COBRA. Is there a lore behind it?
They may have had similar training or gone to the same school. 

do monkeys like popping bubbles as much as they like popping the bloons
Absolutely. Bubblewrap is the best of both worlds! 

Will the ability to type messages ever come back to the BTD Battles app?
Probably not. 

Do you guys enjoy talking about subjects other than bloons for the weekly blog?
It depends on the subject but yes! 

Where do juggernauts get all of their spiked balls? Do they ever run out, or can they reuse them?
Funnily enough, same store as all the darts! 

do you like this speedpaint video i made
Yes! Well done! :) 

if Gwen is at the age of 6, why does she have a flamethrower and barrel of gasoline
You try telling her no. 

Monkeys like to steal things. Are these monkeys any different?
The only thing they steal is our hearts. (Also pretty sure one of them took my banana bread…) 

Are people allowed to bring balloons in to your office when it's their birthday?
No one has tried to but it would probably be popped pretty quickly. 

The story competition makes me curious. How can I submit one if it happens again? I really wanna try it out before I enter college around next month.
If we end up doing another story competition, your answers will be put into the comments below. :) 

Could Churchill have an ability that lets you move his tank to another point on the map connected by land?
Probably not at this stage as that would require a full re-balancing of him to make sure he wasn’t too overpowered! 

You sneak devs, you. Hiding a hint for the next hero in the answer to my question. Anyway, I've been wondering recently if the crossbow monkeys happen to be fans of Quincy since they both use bows of some kind?
Us? Sneaky. Never! 
All the dart monkeys like Quincy, he’s a pretty likeable guy. 

How does a 4+/x/0 Monkey Buccaneer cannot detect camo when it has a radar dish on it?
That upgrade doesn’t have a dish, only a flag. The only one that gets a dish is the 4+/0/2. :) 

What do Churchill and Striker Jones think of Admiral Brickell?
A lot of mutual respect! 

Do the monkey towers and heroes get paid at all? If no, why? If yes, how much?
What do you think the cost is when you put them down? 

How old is Dr. Monkey?
Super old. 

How long did Brickell train to become Admiral?
Quite a while!
