Hey everyone! It’s Sav and Tarn here this week
What's been going on this week?
It is officially the final blog of the year! Our team is on break from early next week but don’t worry, support will still be around if you need help with the games.
As we go into 2021, the website and the Flash games may begin to stop working with Adobe shutting down its support of Flash. It’s been an amazing run and we won’t forget where our games originally started! We do have plans for this website but we will have to see what everything looks like once Flash is gone.
We’ll come back in the New Year with more news here!
BTD6 also got two small updates and is now at 22.2, you can see all of the changes here.
BTD Battles also got update 6.9 which had a whole lot of balance changes, a new sandbox mode and a new clan chest!

Questions from the comments:
Hello Ninja Kiwi are there any plans for BTDB 2
We mentioned this on one of our last blogs but in case you missed it:
It would simply be disingenuous to say that we’re not thinking about Battles 2, so we’re not going to play dumb on that. There’s just nothing to talk about yet in terms of timing or features or anything. As soon as we have anything to share we’ll let you know.
Will sas4 flash have a Christmas even active? it was really cool to see the Halloween theme return and I wanna shoot up some Christmas trees! Yippee Kay Ay!
do the monkeys have any sort of plan to clean up the ungodly amounts of radioactive waste that is undoubtedly left behind by the hydra rocket's dirty missiles?
Dirty? The Monkeys assure us that their weaponry passes all of the latest Dr. Monkey Clean Energy and Tech policies they’ve examined.
do sniper monkeys shoot bullets or darts I think darts but I don't know for sure
If Pat Fusty ate so many bananas, why does he not have Hyperkalemia?
Monkeys don’t suffer from it!
Is there any possibility that tower and bloon plushies will be added as merch? I'd LOVE a tack shooter plushie, and I think MOAB plushies would be awesome too!
We have heard a lot of requests for plushies! Our current supplier doesn’t make them but it may be something we look into in the new year!
Who was the first Quincy? Was he just a Dart Monkey who decided to learn bow instead of crossbow? For that matter, were any of the other heroes originally just regular monkeys?
He was Quincy, the first of the Quincy’s. All the heroes had to start somewhere but I’m not sure I would call any of them ‘regular’.
do mortars canonically fire their shells above the height of a monkey ace? Aces must get accidentally shot down all the time!!!
They are just super great at dodging.
Give Waffle belly scratches for me.
Done and done!
Ever consider adding a mode where bloons rounds are random? One of my favorite things about BMC was not knowing exactly what was coming when, meant I had to prepare for a little bit of everything. Speaking of BMC, a BTD6-esque sequel would be so baller, as would a BTD Battles 2.
We have started introducing this in Odysseys with our custom round sets!
Could you re-add the Extreme map category? Some maps deserve to be there and the whole concept was pretty awesome.
It is something we have considered!
This may have been asked previously, but why do regular Dartlings have a muzzle flash if they shoot darts?
They just shoot so fast!
So, if all hero skins are canon, when did Obyn become guardian of the non-forests
When the great Sun God bestowed it upon him.
does the mailman monkey have a name, if so what is it, if not please give it a name
Dartling Gunner is back... Can you bring back Bloonchipper? I have some ideas such as artwork and upgrade paths.
We aren’t planning on bringing back bloonchipper at this stage. It was a tower that was notoriously hard to balance and ruined a lot of fun for some people, us included!
Hey, tarn ISAB tried your challenge and thought it was supposed to be beaten with one dartling and he started to think you were good a micro any response to that?
Was this "Manual Control"? It was designed to have a couple different strategies available to use. I personally did it with one Dartling and yes, I really enjoy micro challenges.
What do Quincy and the Crossbow Master think of each other?
A lot of mutual respect but like to make fun of the others' weapons a lot! Quincy says a crossbow is lazy and the Crossbow Master says his bow is old fashioned. It’s all in good fun though!
I probably missed it in some blog post but what does UCAV even stand for?
Unmanned combat aerial vehicle
How does one obtain the strength to wield a very large dartling gun?
Pat teaches a class.
What percentage of your pets are named after baked goods?
Immy is sitting at a 75% for that.
How long does it take to make updates? Do you plan updates or do what you want to do?
It depends on the update! We were working on update 22.0 before we had even put out 21.0 and it still needed months to be ready to go because of how much amazing content was in it!
how comfy is the ray of dooms chair/couch
What's Admiral Brickell's first name?
What happens to the people who live in the houses on Skates when you remove them?
They just get their houses back after they are fetched back from the river.
What will happen to the blog when flash ends?
Depending on what the website ends up looking like next year, we may be moving over to the Ninja Kiwi Reddit which you can find here. https://www.reddit.com/r/NinjaKiwiOfficial/
Have a great break everyone and a happy holidays!
