Questions from the comments:


The 11.0 Update is great! Was really worth the wait. I wonder what else is in store down the road? :)
¯\_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) _/¯

In BMC when you complete the task at the beginning of the game that requires you to research some upgrade for the Dart Monkey, the Scientist Monkey says that upgrading is a "not completely harmless process". What exactly makes upgrading "not completely harmless"? And what is the worst possible thing that could happen to a Monkey after upgrading?
Blood sweat and tears go into learning those upgrades! They have to work at it! 

Now that BTD6 has been out for over a year, how much longer do you intend to keep releasing content for BTD5?
We will continue to support BTD5 for some time still. :)

Why was the SMFC / PMFC combo with total transformation removed? Wasn't it confirmed to be intentional?
It was never an intentional interaction, but it was discovered before launch and intentionally left in the game due to the low uptime and difficulty to pull off. With the launch of co-op and multiple T5 towers we had to take a long look over how these duplicates would interact with each other and decided that more than 1 of this combination was too much.

Why were the purple bloons created?
To beat the magic monkeys! 

Do any of the monkeys hate each other?
They all live peacefully.

What is everyone on the team's most hated Bloon (including the Boss Bloons from BMC and BSM2 Mobile and Flash)?
Zach - Camo Regrow Reds, you never know what those shadowy buggers are up too!
Sav - Camo Purple Bloons, I always forget about them until the last moment
Tarn - Quickshot Regrow Rainbows from Battes. 
Rohan - White Bloons. They serve no purpose. 

Which of the heroes are good friends with which?
Quincy likes to think he and Gwen are close, Striker and Churchill bond over old military movies and everyone loves Pat. 

What's your favourite hero to use in co-op? Also, can we rename co-op to "co-pop"?
Obyn’s my favourite so I just never change from him. We can, in our hearts. 

Why is the supermonkey so T H I C C?
He works out.

Guys, "Co-Operate" with me here. You know that's not the Bagel I meant.
For that pun, you get it. Behold the cat known as Bagel! 

Have a great weekend!
