Questions from the comments:
Have you guys considered changing up what Bloonarius spawns, perhaps in something like ABR?
We feel like for the most part the main parts of the base game being predetermined is overall a more enjoyable learning and conquering experience than it would be to have everything randomized or constantly changing. We have lots more coming for Bosses, so stay tuned.
How did cracked get cracked? Did psi just ‘behold, the bloated green of envy’ and mind blast all the grass or something
I blame the Wizard Lord
Would a Tack Shooter be able to eat taco bell nachos?
They don’t have mouths… And if they were going to eat nachos, they’d probably save it for actually good nachos.
I understand that you are focusing development on BTDB2, but any ETA on the next BTD6 update? (I wanna see more paragons lol)
Does Btdb2 has a number or a score as a particular elo that goes up and down when you win and lose respectively or is it just the average winrate?
More details on this subject soon!
Is the sun god and vengeful god the only gods in the Monkeyverse or are they more?
Well Bloonarius could be seen as a Bloon god...
all the blogs have the same question amount or depends on the comment amount?
It depends on the comments! Sometimes we get more than we can answer.
Will you be doing more user contests? I really liked all of the entires in the latest one, and look forward to future ones.
What's Benjammin's favourite music genre?
Anything he can jam to
How’s development for the next btd6 update been going?
Has Ezili ever been exiled from other monkey towns for dark magic usage
No. (They may have been too scared to…)
How is it possible to have multiple of the SAME EXACT hero’s in one game? I’m talking about how you can get multiple in coop.
Dr Monkey messing around in multiverse theory
Will there be a new hero skin for the Halloween update? Maybe like a Sauda skin? Also, will there be a collection event?
You’ll have to wait and see!
Do you plan on making a Linux/Mac friendly version of the Ninja Kiwi Archive?
Sadly, no. :(
is Etienne's roomba cat good friends with Ezili's smudge cat?
They are friendly but only as friendly as two cats living in separate homes can be
Who's more intelligent: Humans or monkeys?
Ah, but is intelligence or wisdom the real question?
How do you guys at the team pronounce "Etienne"? There are a couple totally different ways of pronouncing it and I'd like to know hoe you guys do it
I’ve always said it like ‘Eh-Tien’ ~ Rohan
I say Et-ien! - Sav
Do you think Obyn likes mint ice cream
If all the heros faught each other, who would be the last hero standing?
Oh, it's hard to tell. Psi can stun and Adora uses the power of the Sun God. But Churchill has a tank. I feel like tank wins.
is SAS 5 still on the idea backburner? would love to give some concepts if you guys are considering it. I don't want any money just really love the game. Also I have a question, is attempting to modify the swf files of the game to implement new ideas by replacing old assets just for the sake of a proof of concept to send to my friends and you guys okay? I'm not planning on distributing any modified versions of the game as I understand it breaches copyright law and I don't want to get sued. Just want to visualise my ideas better and basically mess around.
Modifying the game violates the Terms of Service, but to help visualize ideas and discuss with a few friends that’s not anything we want to shut down. As we say in our terms, we’re not asking for ideas as we have plenty of our own and that’s part of what makes it fun to work on, but we know the community has great ideas, so you can send your ideas to support! Do understand that modifying game files will most likely mean your account will be flagged for hacking.
Does the ninja kiwi have any arch enemies?
No, never. Other folks who make games, especially smaller teams, are usually super cool. We feel plenty of competition and motivation, but that doesn’t make anyone enemies.
why is the bomb shooter not called a cannon
Why is a Cannon not called a Bomb Shooter?
Yo, I just had a crazy idea for a new hero. what if there was a hero, that consists of more than one tower. like, you can place, say up to three of them (hero bros. ?) and their levels are shared across the three towers? and then, depending on whether or not they are in range of each other they have different buffs? idk, just came up with this, and had to put it down here.
I’m really just picturing three monkeys in a trench coat! It is a great idea and must admit we’ve already got a couple different combo-heroes in our own idea box.
Which hero is most likely to go crazy and accidentally hurt their friends? I say Gwen, since, you know, "Pyromaniac"
Gwen would probably be the most likely but she's pretty grounded by her friends! Pat rolls over suddenly in his sleep, which does mean slumber parties can be injurious.
Does turning off hero audio physically obstruct their speech? (Not that I’d ever turn it off)
Nah, it's more like a game of “who can be the most quiet?” that everyone played with their parents. Wait, what do you mean other people didn’t play that?
Does Ninja Kiwi hire interns by any chance? If so, how would one go about applying?W
We don’t but you can send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. :)
Does Pat like to be pat? Or is it all just hugs for him?
He’s happy with both - just not at the same time. Those bro hugs with the pat-pat are the worst.
Why isnt banana pizza illegal?
The legislature is full of monkeys.
what monkey is most likely to throw keyboard when they lose ranked match in a game
If pat fusty has a tail, that means he’s a monkey. Does that mean that bloons without tails are apes?
Apes are still primates so I’m gonna have to say that’s a logical fallacy train wreck.
how to peel a banana(wrong answers only)
Peel it? Just take a bite from it
If etn is from a different reality than ettiene then why is their technology the exact same?
It only appears the same…
May I ask, DJ ben is known for hitting sick beats. So is he the ones who compose the music we hear in the game?
That honour belongs to Tim Haywood!
Can we get some statistics for boss events? (e.g. number of completions, most common round of death)
Is the pushie made of dart monkys, or banana?
Surprisingly, neither! It's made of plush
Since the dart plush is already 300% funded in less then a day, will we see any other plushes anytime soon? I'm not sure if I should get the dart or wait for something in the future, (hopefully wizard plush)
If we do any more, they may not be soon. Also, if you don’t get dart now you’ll never be able to get this 0-0-0 beauty again…
How many Bloons could a Bloonchipper chip if a Bloonchipper could chip Bloons?
Seven quadrillion seven hundred and seven seven trillion
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
