News 02 Dec 2016

Hey everyone! Welcome to the blog post for December 2nd, 2016.

The start of December means it's nearly time for the developers to disappear for Christmas and get ready for 2017. Over the next few weeks we have a bunch of updates to get out to you all. Tower Keepers 1.4 will be first, then updates for BTD5 mobile, Battles mobile, BSM2 mobile and BTD5 web. SAS4 and BMC will get the customary Christmas/Holiday/Winter changes and some events to spice things up over the break. No updates this week though, so let's get down to business!

 

Amazon Champions of Fire

Tomorrow, BTD Battles will be played competitively in Amazon's Champions of Fire event. This is happening in Las Vegas, Friday at 10pm UTC, 2 – 9 pm PT. You can find all the details here: http://www.championsoffire.com/

Questions from the Comments:

How about a map design competition for BTD5? The last one was good and another one would be cool.
I'm fully on board with this idea and we've actually talked about doing another one. We haven't got any spare time to implement a track right now but I'll see if we can do one next year :)
 
So, the next Battles update will have something to do with Clans?
Something to do with Clans, yep. (Not the ninjakiwi.com clans)
 
A few months back you stated that there will be a competitive update for Battles mobile, is that still happening?
It is!
 

And that's all we've got time for this week. The next blog will be on Wednesday, December 14th which will be the last blog post for the year.
