Questions from the comments: 


Do the monkeys ever disobey the player?
Why do you think there is a ‘sell’ option? 

There will be a mute button for emotes and messages in Bloons TD Battles? I think this is necessary because there are people that only do BM for fun and it's not healthy for the game.
Definitely something worth considering. At this time there isn’t a definitive yes or no. As far as people doing BM for fun, we respect people making their own choices.

Will there ever be another story competition?
We’ve mentioned in a recent blog that we’d love to continue with the blog competitions but that they weren't receiving enough entries to continue doing them monthly. We do agree another story competition would be fun at some point! 

Comment after another, can we get hours to the stats page please? Would be nice to see how much time I have spent on the game.
Have passed the suggestion on.

how did Quincy and Gwendolin meet in the first place
When the call went out for aid in the eternal struggle against vile, ruthless Bloons, both Quincy and Gwendolin answered the call at the same time. 

I know it's been confirmed that a BTD6 style BMC2 won't happen for quite a while... but if it were to be a thing, would it be released on mobile or on pc first?
We really like mobile and Steam at the same time when we can make that happen, so players can jump on day 1 on their favorite platform.

Carrier Flagship's planes are very cute and good :) They do their little loop de loops
Do you ever just run around the house pretending to be a plane? Good fun! 

Did Quincy ever get revenge on the DDT that injured him? Or is it still out there somewhere...?
To this day Quincy is still hunting for that DDT. He’s been able to track it down a few times but it has always gotten away. 

how did the flooded dam get flooded?
Someone was pressing buttons that they shouldn’t have been messing with. 

Apologies about how pushy I was about the update thing, funny that I asked the day before you guys launched it. You do you and keep a good pace at home, make sure you are all healthy and doing well, some if not most game companies push themselves too much, I would never want that on your guys! Also, I see what you did there back in one of your blogs about the next hero "Water you talking about" Anyways, I don't have a question this week, stay healthy, and stay awesome
Can confirm that we’re all healthy and doing well :) 
We do like adding hidden puns and messages into the blog when there is an opportunity to do so.

Does Churchill have any weapons outside of his tank?
He wields the power of comradery. 

You probably get this a lot, but are there any plans to make the robo monkey's arms target separately?
It’s definitely on the wish list. Wishing for a shorter wish list is also on the wish list.

First of all, in regards to the new map: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa. Secondly, was Admiral Brickell planned from the start like Adora, or was she designed specifically due to requests for a water hero?
First of all, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAare you okay? Secondly, We generally have way more ideas than time - Admiral Brickell was designed some time ago and only implemented recently. 

What's Admiral Brickell's favourite weapon?
Her dress whites combined with vast knowledge of dance moves from every port.

If the monkeys all get their darts from the same shop, how much does a single dart cost?
A whole lot when it’s the last one left.

Any plans for Boss Bloons in BTD6?
We do like those Boss Bloons but we can’t say that we have any plans for them.

Does the first comment ever get in?
Sometimes!
