Hey everyone! It’s Sav and Tarn here this week


What's been going on this week?


And that is a wrap on the year! It’s been a very busy one with two brand new games launched and a whole bunch of updates! We couldn’t have done it without you and we are so glad to have you all with us! Now our teams will be taking 2 weeks off for some much needed rest but don’t worry, our support team will still be around over the next few weeks. Replies may be slightly delayed so thank you for your patience!

While your fruit cake is digesting over the holidays, you can head over to the r/btd6 subreddit and gander at the Map Design Competition that will be running over the next few weeks. See it here.

We’ve also got some brand new desktop backgrounds for BTD 6 and 5 new ringtones.

Countersnipe:
Version: 1.0.2: This patch fixes an issue where squads of size 2 or 3 were becoming public and ensnaring searching quick match players.

Adventure time:
Version 1.7.1 is also out now on iOS, Android, Steam and Amazon which fixes up a few backend issues!

BTD 5:

Questions from the comments: 


Are bloons actually the good guys?
That’s like saying the Joker is the good guy. Sure, you may agree with some (hopefully not all) of his beliefs but at the end of the day he simply wants to watch the world burn.

any plans for Tower Keepers? also what do DDTs smell like?
If you can smell the DDTs then you’ve already lost THE GAME.

Are Adora and Ezili related in any way?
Yes, in the same way they are related to Obyn.

How big is the fountain in the middle of Winter Gardens? It can fit 3 aircraft carriers! Or are the monkeys just really small?
I’d have to say it’s somewhere between the size of a basin and an olympic sized swimming pool. 

Was Adora inspired by any community-made ideas, or was she planned ahead of time?
She was planned ahead of time!

Where did the banana republic go in the transition from 5 to 6?
We removed as it kept getting confused and running sales on chinos.

Any plans for adding Dartlings and/or Bloonchipper at BTD6
These towers aren’t currently on our list of things to do. However, they haven’t been completely ruled out. 

Will Adora get nerfed? She's pretty OP at the moment.
We’re always looking at ways to balance the game and have made a lot of changes already. Adora could very well receive changes in the future. 

Why Does The Super monkey Become A Sun God?
Would you if you possessed the ability? I think yes. 

Do the glyphs on Adora's Temple mean anything? Like, is it an actual language? If so, what do they say?
:)

What is Adora's favorite breakfast cereal?
It doesn’t translate, but from what we’ve seen it looks Adora bowl. 

Will I seem silly by the next blog for saying that Adora seems like an S or S- tier hero?
Not at all! 

Where do Adora's sacrifices go to?
Same place the Sungods ones do. 

 

Have a very happy holidays everyone and we will see you in the new year! Thanks for continuing to be the most awesomer community ever.    :)
