No need for a bigger boat here.We enjoyed bringing Navarch into the mix as it covers both military category and water-heavy maps. With an emphasis on boat farming, destroyer spam for early rounds, and pop farming with active use of hooks it makes it a very different and fun road to Paragon. Portable Lake spam in non-ranked games has also led to some good laughs.Co-op Lobbies 2.0!We have condensed the UI flow of co-op lobby creation, allowing more options to be picked after creating the lobby instead. Number of slots, Map, Difficulty & Mode are now all instead chosen within the lobby itself.Once made public, these elements cannot be changed, in an effort to prevent co-op teams coming together but then bailing if the host changed settings.Along with this Local Join Lobbies will now display player profile/avatar/banner rather than the map, as these feel like more important factors in a local search situation now.Co-op quick match buckets reworked into: Any game, Medium Game & Long Game. The removal of short/easy button is a response to players mostly choosing longer games and in the interest of encouraging players to try more options, even if they have to lean on and learn from their teammates. Short/easy games will still come up in Any searches, and players who want that can Create Match and make that public for other Any players to join.New AwesomeNew Intermediate map: Quiet StreetChill out and enjoy the holiday here!

Face off against the mighty hulk known as Bloonarius the Inflator!In Events intended to run each week, the Boss will appear on a different map to enhance the variety of tactical decisions around economy and placement. Bosses start appearing at Round 40 and the Tier 5 appears at round 120. Each Tier Boss must be defeated within 20 rounds of its appearance or it’s Game Over.Defeat the Tier 5 Normal Boss to unlock the Elite Boss for a whole new level of challenge. We mean it - Elite is bonkers monkey tough. Beating Tier 5 Normal and Elite Bosses award new badges to show off on Player Profile screens. An Elite badge is a true accomplishment - wear them with pride!Boss Events feature a checkpoint save system instead of normal continues, creating a save at the start of each new Boss Tier.Because of downstream Co-op and competitive Leaderboard features we intend to add in future updates, Boss Events can only be played while online.Difficulty Fair Warning - Bosses are designed to be crazy challenging! If you are new to BTD6, make sure you can win most hard modes and really know how to farm well and maximize tower damage before you take on a Boss. Expect defeat. Nay, revel in it - bathe in anguish then emerge smarter, more capable, and with improved tactics that help you get further each time. If you have built up a stockpile of Powers and Insta Monkeys, feel free to use them - they are not required but they are certainly fair game. And, yes, build those Paragons...New Paragon Tower Tier!Paragon status granted to Dart Monkey and Boomerang Monkey, unleashing the might of the Apex Plasma Master and the Glaive Dominus!Merge together all three Tier 5 upgrades of one Monkey Tower type to create an ultimate version that combines the powers of all 3 paths and deals incredible bonus damage to Boss Bloons.Paragon Tier has a significant XP cost and can only be unlocked after unlocking the Tier 5 upgrade of all 3 paths.In battle, Paragons gain strength by absorbing the power of all Monkey Towers of that type on the playfield - the greater the number and effectiveness of the Monkey Towers absorbed, the greater the Degree of Paragon you will create! Paragon Degrees start at 1 and reach a maximum Degree of 100.Once created, Paragons cannot be buffed by other towers, nor can their transformation price be reduced.Co-op Rejoining! We’ve been working on this for some time, and we are delighted to announce support for crashed/disconnected games. Player towers & cash will no longer be immediately distributed when a player disconnects but give time for the disconnected player to rejoin. If remaining players know the disconnected player won’t return or do not want to wait, disconnected players can be removed within the co-op menu depending on player position. Please note that some games will not be recoverable if multiple players disconnect...Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes!

You’ve been able to make your own Challenges - now put them together in player-created Odysseys! Use all of the features you’d expect from Challenge creation but put them together with a theme, Odyssey difficulty (including Extreme!), and Crew restrictions and make the best Odysseys you can dream up for friends and community.Monkey Teams: Stick to the chosen team to earn extra rewards! To mix things up with an alternative to the Golden Bloon, Monkey teams will be assigned to a random map in each category similar to the Golden Bloon, however for this event players have the option of beating the map using only their hero along with 3 randomly selected towers. If the game is completed without breaking this team rule then a small monkey money bonus will be awarded. Monkey Teams and Golden Bloon will alternate for variety, and both can be running while Collection Events are on.Big Changes / AdditionsFreeplay rounds from 121 to 140 have now been added in the default round set, so like the recent 101-120 additions, these will now be consistent rounds.

Don’t worry - you don’t have to race twice! Instead, all Racers now submit their scores to 2 leaderboards. The Mini-Race leaderboard (look for the tab button on the leaderboard screen) will segment players into smaller groups of 100 on a first come first added basis when your first time is recorded.We love the fierce competition at the very top of the full leaderboard, but for players unable to compete for those wickedly fast times, we wanted to offer the chance to shine on their own more granular leaderboards and enjoy the excitement of shaving just a fraction of time from your score to move up the standings.Yes, there’s a little Contested Territory (Bloons Monkey City, and Adventure Time TD) thinking here but we wanted to greatly expand the range of competition within those pools so 100 players per Mini-Race made sense for that.No, there are no badges for the Mini-Races, as it is incredibly important to us to not dilute the prestige of the main board rankings and badges.Veteran Levels have been added to the game! After reaching max level, players can now continue to earn additional Veteran Levels. Every one of these requires a substantial amount of experience, but that per level requirement stays flat.We have been listening to the feedback on this topic - ranging from requests to increase the Player Level Max, adding stats that would track total xp, or create a paragon-style system.We will raise the Player Level Max at some intentionally non-committal time in the future but only after we have further narrowed the delta between the available Monkey Knowledge Points including achievements and the total MK Points that can be spent.Veteran Levels allow the awesome number of super dedicated players to keep earning XP and compete for bragging rights on an upcapped scale, but without unbalancing the Monkey Knowledge system.And don’t worry about your Veteran Levels when we do raise the Player Level Max. At that time any Veteran Level player will start earning XP toward ...Bloons TD 6 becomes $2, hits an even more ridiculous player count recordMar 22, 2021 - PCGamesNI look at the Steam charts to see what's hot on Valve's platform. And every day, I am once again surprised to see Bloons TD 6 hanging among Steam's most popular titles. The colourful tower defense game suddenly exploded in popularity late last year after a substantial sale and some big Twitch streams, and now another discount has brought the game to even greater heights. Bloons TD 6 went 80% off over the past week (sorry, the sale just ended), which isn't even the biggest sale in the game's history. Nevertheless, it brought the game to a peak of 53,943 concurrent players yesterday, as SteamDB shows, up by over 10k from the previous peak in January, which happened after a 90% discount. Tower defense is a venerable subgenre of strategy games, and the Bloons series has plenty of nostalgia built up from its days as a free Flash game, but it's still wild to see Bloons TD 6 in comparable standing to Steam games as massive as Destiny 2 and Civilization VI.

We’ve enjoyed adding them to the mix with Pat Fusty, and several characters in BATTD. The design concept for Sauda has been around for a few years, and we truly hope the many, many players who have asked for a “sword hero” over the years will enjoy!New Intermediate map Balance. You can play it in CHIMPS right now using this challenge code: ZMUHSGKNew Benjamin skin Sushi Bento - treat him nicely or else there’s NO SUSHI FOR YOU!The Golden Bloon has returned! A chosen map in each difficulty will now contain an extra Golden Bloon every 10 rounds, these Golden Bloons can get tricky to pop on the higher rounds but do not cost any lives when they escape. If popped successfully every Golden Bloon will reward a small monkey money bonus. (Gold Bloons will not spawn in Deflation or CHIMPS modes)Golden Bloon is another design item we’ve had on the “add this” list since BTD6 was launched. We had fun adding the Golden Bloon to BTD5 and even more frustrating fun when it went into BSM2, so for BTD6 we wanted to take elements of each and make it work even better with the scaling power of BTD6. And who doesn’t love-hate treasure gobliny things!We’ve felt it ourselves and had feedback from players that they like chasing the Collection Reward bonuses on different maps and that they’d like to have a way to earn a bit more Monkey Money each game. Adding the Golden Bloon helps address those items, and making it evolve and stay relevant as late round power grows feels good to us from a design side.

Bloons TD 6?Jan 5, 2021 - PCGamesNI like to browse the Steam charts sometimes. It's partly for fun, just to see what weird games are climbing up the rankings, but it's also partly for work, as I now get to tell you that Bloons TD 6 is suddenly one of the top games on Valve's platform. Yes, that's the latest entry in the Bloons Tower Defense series, those games you probably remember playing in your browser over a decade ago. Bloons TD 6 peaked at 43,629 players today, as SteamDB shows. That makes it the 23rd-biggest Steam game for the day, sandwiched right between venerable hits like Terraria and Civilization 6. The game's daily highs have been steadily rising just before Christmas, when the Steam Winter Sale brought the price down just under one dollar. What can I say? Tower defense is fun, Bloons is cute and nostalgic, and one United States dollar is a fine price to pay for any videogame. A number of Twitch streamers, including xQc, picked the game up during its sale period, which certainly added to the popularity, as well. Read the rest of the story... Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes!

With this, we have found that while the initial intention was to give a nice beefy reward for any win, this has resulted in Tier 3 and 4 insta-monkeys being far too common while Tiers 0-2 are much more coveted with no farmable way to get them. We have decided to work on this by redefining the free reward earned on round 100, instead of being a random chance of Tier 3 or 4 rewards will now follow this logicBeginner maps: Insta reward range Tier 0 to Tier 2Intermediate maps: Insta reward range Tier 1 to Tier 3Advanced maps: Insta reward range Tier 2 to Tier 4Expert maps: Insta reward range Tier 3 to Tier 4Round 200 and higher remains at the past Tier 3 to Tier 4 regardless of difficultyBig Changes / AdditionsFollowing up on the changes in 20.0 in relation to making for smaller and faster updates, additional changes have been made to more efficiently and correctly clean up old bundles when updating before downloading new & changed filesAdded Hover/Tap and hold state to all medals on the stats screenOdyssey Menu now supports the display of a seasonal themeAdded in a ‘Loop’ option to the Jukebox for current songAfter having had a name set at least once before, Monkey Names can now be edited from the Player profile pageAdded Search Functionality to the Achievements menuHidden Achievements now appear in the Achievements menu and display progress before being completely unlocked.
