BTD6 Update 34 Patch Notes – December 8, 2022

Key New Features

  • New Boss Bloon: Dreadbloon!
    • From the dark underground depths to the skies above, Dreadbloon brings its signature connection to the subterranean to combat even the toughest of Monkey defenses. Destroy Dreadbloon’s earthen armor only to find a lead interior with new special properties – complete immunity to different Monkey Tower categories each time the armor reforms. Even Paragons in those categories are rendered temporarily harmless. As if that’s not enough, Dreadbloon also spawns resilient Rock Bloons each time a skull is reached and until its stone armor is destroyed, and these Rock Bloons are so fearsome that any Monkey set to strong targeting will feel taunted to attack the Rock Bloon before anything else. Watch out for Dreadbloon in upcoming weekly Boss events and win those prestigious Dreadbloon badges!

New Awesome

  • New Beginner Map: One Two Tree!
    • A fun seasonal beginner map with an interesting twist! At certain rounds the trees are taken away to decorate Monkey homes leaving more space in which to build defenses. A bit like an automated Cornfield, but these plots also confer a handful of special properties to the Monkeys placed there. Pay attention to the colors and shapes on the billboard legend to help understand which Monkeys will benefit from each plot. This was a fun system to enable for use in maps, so we’ll plan to do more of this in the future and we also expect this will be heaps of fun for custom challenges – we look forward to seeing your ideas!
  • New Hero Skin: Sleigh Churchill skin
    • Inspired by the work done in Bloons Pop, Churchill’s combat ready sleigh was an easy pick for a seasonal hero skin. We had heaps of fun with this voiceover recording; Kevin Orlando did an amazing job as always, and we promise we only made a couple of sleigh homonym puns!
  • New Achievement: Invigoration
  • New Trophy Store Items
    • Game & UI: Avatar 66 – Avatar of Wrath, Avatar 68 – Absolute Zero

What’s Not Here – Yet!

  • Context and Reality Check
    • 2022 was a big year for the BTD6 team and Ninja Kiwi overall. Getting out of lockdowns and back to work in person was a huge gift and we were excited to build big and exciting updates. Both Geraldo and Contested Territory pushed the game into new design and technical areas, but also required additional post-launch work.
    • From a team perspective, getting out of lockdowns and the return of travel also meant long overdue family reunions and we supported extended time off for those purposes without hesitation. In parallel, we also saw more sick leave this year as unsurprisingly cold and flu season hit us particularly hard in Auckland this year, causing significantly more time off for ill health during September and October. While we did plan more time and did one fewer update this year than last in order to make room for a huge end of year update, this important leave time did impact us more than expected and planned.
    • Rather than delay the entire update, we decided to delay two elements so we could still bring the Dreadbloon, the One Two Tree map, Sleigh Churchill, and new Trophy and Team Store items out for holiday.
  • Dark Dungeon Expert Map
    • We’ve been excited to respond to community requests for another difficult Expert map, especially with this excellent and inspiring community design. We implemented as designed and then iterated the room areas and path splits, in particular MOAB-class entering from two paths to prevent single path clustering. We riffed on the secret statue tower and included secrets and traps to match the dungeon theme and balance difficulty across modes and late game. These changes were producing a fantastic quality map but the nuances of the statue tower design, art, code, and QA made it compete for attention with the Beast Handler. At the point where we felt Beast Handler could still be delivered, we had to push Dark Dungeon to update 35 in the new year.
  • Beast Handler
    • This tower is very unique. The Beasts were completely different from any other mechanic in the game, and they of course required 15 new models and animation sets completely separate from the normal tower model and animations. Sharing more about the tower functionality than we have before, the Beasts were also designed to synergize, so several Handlers together would combine their Beasts in order to enable higher tier Beasts.
    • Amazing art and animations were built, signature code was written and optimized, and design was iterated. In many ways, the Beast Handler was completed, bug tested, and nearly ready to release – nearly. Up until last week, we thought the changes were making progress, but ultimately during the last playtests of the week at both Auckland and Dundee offices, we agreed there was too much confusion with the combination system and how Beasts would interact with other Handlers.
    • Ninja Kiwi has always cared about quality and providing our players with the best possible experience and the tower just didn’t feel like it was there. It wasn’t up to the standard we set ourselves and the standard we hold the game to. While we are extremely disappointed that we won’t be able to release a new tower this year, the team felt it was the right call to make as the Beast Handler was just not quite ready to be unleashed.
    • This was a very difficult call after all the incredibly hard teamwork that was put in to get this done – for us to simply say that it is not yet ready to play. We can and will make this better but with the amount of revision needed, we are moving the Beast Handler out at least two updates to update 36 at the earliest. This is not a set date for the release, however. We are giving ourselves a few months to go back to the fundamental design and make sure we can make good on our commitment to quality.
    • We will be working hard to get the Beast Handlers into your hands but we want to release a tower you all find enjoyable, challenging (in a good way!) and, most importantly, fun! We really appreciate the love and support you have all provided us with this year and we hope you will understand the decision we've made and why.

Looking Forward

While we need to look at our planning overall and learn from the places where we bit off more than we could chew, we’re still planning on incredible updates for next year!

  • Console: we’ve made great progress on the Xbox and Playstation versions of BTD6, and we will have these released as early next year as possible given the approval process on these platforms; we’ll update on this as we have meaningful news but we can tell you that 4 player couch co-op is truly awesomer!
  • Update 35: we need these first updates of the year to be smaller so the team can rest and relax over the holidays, but we will have Dark Dungeon and as much extra as we can squeeze in
  • Update 36: we’ll be pushing to have Beast Handler ready for this update but we’ll continue to hold it until it’s ready; there will be extra awesome here as well but still juggling whether that would be a Paragon or Boss
  • Key Goals: we’re still brainstorming and pitching ideas for next year so there will be more than the list below but these are areas where we are excited to build new awesome
    • Quests: both as events and as a player-paced progression system, we’re already underway with a system to support multiple linked games with short narratives and special rewards
    • New Heroes, Paragons, and Bosses: with particular focus on new mechanics, challenge variety, and exciting visuals
    • New Team Events and Features: more ways for Teams to play, compete, and have fun together, focusing on skill rather than grind, as well as new Team tools to help find like-minded players and safely communicate
    • Creators: improved coordination around releases, creator events, and expanding the creator code program
    • Map Editor and Player Creators: a fully functional in-game map creation tool with a curation pipeline is a huge goal; we’ll attempt to build this in stages so we can get more frequent community feedback about what should come next
  • 2023 and Beyond: we’ll start working on these pieces in 2023 but we’re not sure whether they will land in 2023 or after
    • Mod support: whether via direct support or 3rd party tools, we’ll be developing better ways for modders to have fun with the game while improving the tracking and compartmentalizing of mod-based play to alleviate friction with accounts, main game progress, and fair competitive play
    • Tower & Bloon Editor: potentially overlapping with mod support, we’ll continue working on ways to play and have fun tweaking existing Monkey Towers and Bloons, and ultimately create a safely curated pipeline for new Tower and Bloon ideas
    • Player Creator payback: a challenge on the technical, legal, and financial fronts, we still think that it’s important to share back with player creators if they help create valuable content for others. We love the idea that someone might get into game design and development because of the work they started in BTD6 or that others might be able to make a little bit of extra money and make their lives better by playfully working on a game they already enjoy. This is a massive challenge but we like the old wisdom that rising tides should lift all boats, and we know Admiral Brickell agrees.
