Questions from the comments:
What is the Dart Monkey's Up+B?
Double backflip into crossbow master critical. Don’t try that at home.
The last odyssey showed that custom rounds are possible. Would tower limits for an odyssey be possible, like on Challenge Editor? For example, limiting dart monkeys on one map or only allowing 3-3-3 snipers on another.
There are lots of additional rules that are planned for Odysseys. Path restrictions are on that list.
Could you give us the option to modify bloon ranks like some of BTD5's challenges? To be clear I'm not asking for custom rounds, just, for example, the ability to turn Zebras into Leads or Pinks into Purples.
On global things everyone sees for long enough for a discussion to go down around the one thing (like Odyssey) small changes like that can make sense. But at this stage we don’t want random user created challenges to have Bloons tweaked to such a custom a level that no one can trust their round knowledge any more.
In future, we may delve more into incorporating a bigger list of official ‘alternate round sets’ like ABR as selectable options in the editor.
Has the Total Transformation Alchemist accidentally got a monkey stuck in monster form?
The Alchemist is really good at getting the concoctions correct and has not impacted another monkey in any negative way.
Do the monkeys ever feel jealous of more powerful monkeys?
The monkeys realize that they all have their role to play and work in unison to stop the Bloons no matter their personal strengths or weaknesses.
What was the first Bloons game you played? Mine was BTD5.
I played BTD Battles first - Tarn
I started early in the original Bloons puzzle series, can’t really remember whereabouts there but been all over everything since - Rohan
Are there any plans to give more towers diverse functions with their crosspathing? i.e. Ninja, Druid etc.
We’re always looking at the balance of the game and make changes with each update.
Can you guys make it if you complete a chalenge with same lv's starting cash and lives then you also unlock it? Im specificly talking about the AC on 31/10, were its exzact same lv's and bloons but i didn't get a meddal when i should of. (in the single player area)
Advanced challenges by default will not reward a medal upon completion as it can contain additional rulesets that would take away from the true meaning of the medal.
Why is Gwen magic and not something like Primary? Heck, i would see her more classified as Support, as nothing about her is magic
Have you witnessed a firestorm on round 76? That is magical.
bruh you made a post with quincy giving chocolates to gwendolin, and it shows he has a crush on her, and you said Quincy doesn't have a crush, liar
Chocolates are a great way to show you care about your friends. Everyone should have chocolate.
How do you choose the art for the blog?
Throughout the week we share a lot of the art we find with the other NK members and we pick the ones we think look really awesome!
I noticed this week's Odyssey has custom rounds. Any plans for future odysseys to have them?
What do the monkeys do for Halloween?
Some like to get dressed up, some like to hang out with their friends.
What do the heroes do in their spare time?
They have extensive social lives and hobbies.
Have any other animals joined the Bloons' side? And if so, how do the Monkeys fight them?
Luckily the Bloons have difficulties communicating with other animals and find it difficult to recruit them.
where do me banana go when rotten
Pat turns them into Banana Cakes and shares them with everyone.
Why does the game keep talking about "camo bloons"? Whenever they mention them, nothing shows up??
Talking about what?
Thanks for tuning in. As usual, feel free to leave a question or comment in the comment section below. Have a great weekend everyone!
