Questions from the comments:


Can you add an option for custom hotkeys for steam/windows vercion of btd battles?
This is something we considered - however, we don't want to add custom hotkeys so we don't give Steam players an advantage over mobile.

Will there ever be an SAS5, even if it could be years away (with emphasis on the yearS)?
It hasn’t been ruled out.

Will daily or advanced challenges ever allow limiting upgrades? e.g. you can't use the top path of an alchemist?
We're always looking at ways to make Daily Challenges as fun and interesting as we can. We've definitely considered this, and it very well could make its way into the game at some point.

Any PSA of what will happen to the site once browsers decommission flash entirely in 2020? Do we need to download flash manually or use some external loader/app to reach the old NK games? Also any fixes for the (really dead) SAS3? Tourneys and some other functions are busted. :(
As for the specifics of what exactly you'll need to do, I don't have that information yet. All I know is we care about you of all and want to see you all enjoying our games for as long as possible so we'll do our best to keep as many games available.

When will our beloved Monkey Engineer make his way back into BTD6?
You mean this guy?

Do you think that the B.A.D. Will find a bigger blimp in a future game? Or is it already the biggest and... BADdest of all?
I really like this question so decided to turn it into this week's competition :) 

If you could be any tower in BTD5, what tower would you be?
Engineer

Not a question but hey this blog was released on my birthday
H.A.P.P.Y B.I.R.T.H.D.A.Y! :)


That's all folks! 

Remember, have fun, stay awesome and leave a question in the comments :)
