Questions from the comments:
any plans for adding colorblind support in Btd6?
It’s definitely on the ‘would like’ list, however, it’s not currently being worked on.
Why is it that in BTD Battles my opponent can leak 11 ceramics and a BFB and survive and then I lose 150 lives to a white bloon?
It's usually caused by server lag that's delaying the server message that tells the game your opponent has lost lives. This can also cause the game to not show you if your opponent has placed/upgraded other towers etc so they're likely seeing the rush being defended. Unfortunately, it can be quite common if the internet connection on either side is weak or interrupted, but it's something we're always working on, and we look to improve on it with each update!
What happens if gwen's fire tank is mixed with water?
Water you think happens?
Will BMCM ever get bloon dunes or a second city?
We’re not actively working on any content updates for BMC mobile at the moment.
How do you choose Co-op Challenges? Also can we have the ability to create Co-op Challenges?
We pick them from the player submitted challenges. Currently there isn’t an option to specify a challenge as a co-op challenge, but some just scream “Co-op!”.
This is probably a heavily-asked question, but if I buy BTD5 on Steam after Flash shuts down, will I keep my NinjaKiwi account progress from the Flash version?
BTD5 on Steam and the version of BTD5 within the Ninja Kiwi Archive on Steam are two separate games and unfortunately the account progress for each will always be separate.
On Christmas, do the monkeys and bloons have a mutual agreement to not attack each other so they can enjoy the day with their families?
War is non-st pop. The Bloons do not care for the holidays that we all celebrate.
I noticed events like Odysseys and Professor Evil have 2 or more days in between them. Any particular reason not to have odysseys last until the next one is ready?
The server Monkeys like to have a little time to double check that all their bananas and darts are in order after each event.
Any plans to nerf the crossbow master so it doesn't pop leads? right now it's a "Dominate pretty much anything" monkey, plus you can get 2 of them. It would be nice if a double crossbow master had at least 1 weakness.
Crossbow master is in a pretty good spot for his cost right now, but we do continually evaluate all towers and upgrades.
I completed CHIMPS recently on Streambed, red medal, yet I don't seem to have a red border on it. Any clue as to why that's happening?
You’ll need to get all available medals from each submode on a map to get the gold/black borders. So double-check that you’ve completed the other submodes first and if you still have doubts then get in touch with the support team via https://support.ninjakiwi.com/hc/en-us/requests/new one of the team can take a look at your account and try to identify the problem.
[insert generic question here]
Soo.. You come here often?
plz make sas5 or make sas4 available (its not working im stuck at loading) : ( I'm a OG Player sas2 sas3 sas4
You should check out the Ninja Kiwi Archive. It’s got lots of the older flash games including SAS 4: ZA
do you black border maps before releasing it?
Most of the time, yes. However, there have been a couple that weren’t able to be BB’d upon release.
Are we not gonna get race times on blogs anymore?
My bad - I’ll include both weeks this time.
What spurred the company to do balance changes for BTD6 initially? As in around release, since it makes a bit of sense to just have stopped balancing either upon release or after the first few versions similar to some other games in the past.
BTD6 evolves with each update, with each new map, hero and tower added. We also strongly feel like each tower should be viable in at least some situations, so balancing is something we’ve always seen as a core part of our update loop.
I know heros can, but can the other monkeys speak? Or do they just make monkey noises while heros speak our language?
So it’s about 2:30am and you’ve been trying to sleep for the last few hours but just having no luck. Your mind is restless, bouncing between thoughts of getting up and trying one more CHIMPS run or ditching it completely for a 2TC that you think might be possible. A strange sound pierces the darkness and the flurry of thoughts you’ve been experiencing. It’s a sound unlike anything you’ve heard before. A sort of metallic twang with an oaky thud shortly following.
All thoughts of Bloons quickly exit your mind whilst you hone your keen sense of hearing to that ever distant and strange sound. As you focus in you start to hear a rhythm to the sound. A sort of.. mechanical rhythm. You focus on the sound even more intently. At this point all distant thoughts of sleep have left and a deep sense of panic starts to rise within. A million questions flood you all at once. Without knowing it, the duvet has been pulled up to the line above your nose but below your eyes and you feel a cold, Haunted chill run down your spine. What is that sound?
As you shake the fear off, curiosity rises. It can’t be human, you didn’t hear any sounds of forced entry into your house and you live alone. You wait for what feels like an eternity, really just a couple minutes and come up with a plan. You decide that you’re going to brave it down the hall to investigate that Bazaar sound.
First foot… Second foot.. You stand and make your way in the darkness to your bedroom door. You’ve passed the point of needing a light source to guide your way. You’ve done this trip thousands of times and can mentally map out each step, paired with your heightened hearing you decide against turning on the lights just now.
You slowly open the door and start the journey Downstream. You avoid the Cracked floorboards, Spring Spring-ing over them making your way towards that mechanical twang you hear. It seems to be coming from the Workshop Underground. Carefully edging your way closer you make it to the End Of The Road where you turn the corner and you stop, Frozen Over in your tracks. Right in front of you is a machine the size of you. In the darkness you can ever so slightly distinguish the shape and design of pure destruction of which that of the 000 Tack Shooter possesses. As you stand there frozen, the Tack Shooter isn’t Mesa-ing about and turns around slowly, it turns to face you and stares you dead in the eyes. With a deep and powerful voice it says.. “Sup”.
So no, other monkeys do not speak. That would just be strange.
You're investigating an issue where the store doesn't work when premium weapons are sold in the archive version of SAS4, but that hasn't been fixed yet. What happened to the results of the investigate?
The investigation is still underway.
Do any of the heroes have perfect pitch? Because I do. And we could form a pitch perfect choir!
The heroes often get together and perform their own versions of the latest Pop songs.
The Dart Monkey from the original Bloons can pop Yellow Bloons in one shot and has infinite popping power. What's his secret?
Ah, the primogenitor. The perfect specimen. The ONE. The basis for which all others will follow. And you dare ask his secret? You? BOW BEFORE DART MONKEY!
dun dun dun dun ohhhh banana dun dun dun
na na na na batman
How are the monkeys so heckin' cute?
A super amazing art team!
How to the monkeys get trained for the battlefield? Especially the 5th tier towers.
The monkeys have gone through extensive training before they’ve mastered the 5th tier powers.
can benjamins laptop run doom
Not only does it run Doom, but it also provides all the WiFi for the other heroes to use.
how does a 0/0/0 sniper put his hat on? he shouldn't be able to see it
The hat just landed there one day and the 000 Sniper has yet to notice
Ummm... there's a bloon right next to me. Please send reinforcements
Quick, grab the first item on your right and throw it!
will you ever add more bloons? i know at this point you wont change the rounds but maybe with this second version of alternate bloon rounds also C A M O R E G R O W M O A B cmon ninja kiwi make it happen
Our advance scouts can neither confirm nor deny the existence of as-yet unknown bloon types.
Does rohan actually exist?
Is Schrodinger's cat alive?
can you add tower reload speed in challenge editor? that would be nice
That would be nice
are you thinking about adding multiple tier fives to challenge editor? I know most of your focus isnt around community challenges however one of my favorites is two towers chimps co op and it is really difficult to do ones such as tsar tsar in actually co op so being able to have multiple tier fives in challenge editor would be pretty epic
We are looking at ways to expand the Challenge Editor in the future.
We've never seen any beta/alpha footage or screenshots of BTD6 except of a few pre-release teasers. Do you plan on sharing anything as a, let's say, fun piece of trivia?
We’ve shared some things from time to time, and even added some back into the game (Like Door Gunner knowledge, which was a pre-release bug initially).
Thanks for tuning in to this week’s blog. Post your favourite puns in the comments below.
