    Shared-NW reacted to Alexander for a blog entry, Happy Easter Everyone!   
    Hi Pilots,
    We at Gato Games hope you will all have a great time with your family, even if it may be via video chats seeing the current situation. 
    As a little gift from us, everyone on mobile should be getting an easter box in their notifications. Didn't get it? Don't panic! Some may have delayed delivery and for the next few days, anyone who logs on desktop or puffin (https://flash.puffin.com/http://supermechs.com/?hideall) will also get it. Please do pass that information on to your clanmates and friends. 
    By the way, the box is also available in the store. It has a bit better droprates than the usual box and comes with a pattern bonus, so I hope for those of you who saved up, it's well worth it!
    Again, happy easter everyone!

    Shared-NW reacted to Alexander for a blog entry, Report-based Banwave   
    Hi Pilots,
    We've just done a relatively limited banwave targeting certain cheats based on reports. A few obvious non-reported accounts were caught as well.
    Please note we're intending to do another small one if necessary and then a bigger, more thorough one. 
    The aim here was to remove the accounts currently causing the most grief in the arena, please report to us any cheater we may have missed via the form, we'll get to more unreported ones later. Similarly, duplicate reports by different people with different information are very helpful. 
    Got banned? Please check our FAQ on appeals and ban errors. Thank you 🙂
    We're working on anti cheat fixes in the immediate future and intend to move onto balancing after, in paralel to our current work on the next event schedule. 🙂

    Shared-NW reacted to Alexander for a blog entry, Migrating from Kongregate to SuperMechs.com   
    Hi all, 
    After discussing the Kongregate situation with their director of player relations, we've received permission to transfer certain data (inventories, levels) from Kongregate accounts to new accounts. This is an emergency option for those who are not willing to wait for Kongregate to potentially fix SuperNova. 
    Please PM us on Kongregate after creating a new SuperMechs account here (*not in game, in game accounts will not be considered under any circumstances*) using Internet Explorer (or other old browsers, modern ones _will not_ work): https://forum.supermechs.com/forum/ucp.php?mode=register 
    PM us the chosen username and we will proceed with the transfer for you. Please note that there may be bugs or loss of some progress in some cases, we will do our best to make things as smooth as possible. Your SM account on Kongregate will most likely no longer function after this.
    So, again, steps:
    Create a new SuperMechs Account using Internet Explorer on the old forums, not via the game PM us on Kongregate with the username of your new supermechs account, ideally with the following form: 
    Username of your newly created SM Account as made per instruction:
    Kongregate PlayerID (if you know it): 
    Do you agree with the transfer of your player data, regardless of potential losses or risks, bricking your Kongregate SuperMechs account: Yes/No

    This can only be done once, the PM must be sent from the Kongregate account that you used to log into SuperMechs.   
    SuperNova will most likely not work after this, even if it is fixed in the future on Kongregate. This is a destructive action that may only be done once and can never be reversed. 
    Thank you everyone.

    weight 30 -> 28
    energy damage 36 -> 33
    energy regen damage 7 -> 10
    weight 30 -> 28 Thank you everyone for your patience with us! We hope this update will pave the way to a more balanced game where every item you get feels like it may be useful to you. We intend to update an additional 5-10 items late jan, with an internal deadline at mid feb. 
    We'll evaluate this update in the next few weeks and apply any needed additional nerfs or buffs to these items based on that. Please keep in mind though, they are intended to be stronger than their former peers, the idea was to bring them up to the level of the very best items in the game right now, not to the level of the average item. The other items will get the same treatment over time. 
    If it turns out they're still a class beneath the best items for their purpose, they'll receive another buff soon. If it turns out they completely replace the best items, they'll get a corrective nerf soon. They should be a choice, you should feel like you can build a top build with both these items and the current best items. The difference between premium and non premium items should exist, but not be so major as to make premiums not worth it. The difference between C-M and E-M should exist, but not be so major as to make a C-M lose every single matchup to an E-M. 
    Hope that makes things clear!
    As for the reasonings: 
    Various torsos were buffed to account for the stronger physical drones, the larger HP going around the meta and the current meta dominance of the so-lovingly dubbed "Monkeys". More will follow. Thank you @Lord Gorgon and @SawzAll for creating in depth topics suggesting broad balance changes and more specific ones as well. 
    Frantic Brute was reworked to be less random and have slightly more cost attached. The other frantics were made a bit less random but otherwise remain the same. Thank you everyone who suggested this on the old forums, some a little bit too passionate (*cough* lake *cough*) and of course the late besty. 
    Malice Beam was given a slight buff as it was overshadowed by other items in its class. It should be roughly on par now. 
    Swoop was given a large buff to make this "useless" drone into a heat-generating powerhouse for the right build. Make no mistake - it might not be targeting cooldown, but with the right setup, the little swoop is going to wreck some builds. Thank you @CyberRodrigo for shining a light on this item on the forum. 
    Anguish was given a minor rework and buff to focus it on its unique selling point (hitting the energy regeneration) and make it feel a little more powerful. 
    Thank you everyone for your countless suggestions, advices and opinions. I tried reading them all but it's hard sometimes.
    Thank you to the Volunteer Balance Team for taking their time discussing it with us and helping us ( @Elcent and @CleverName with their Spreadsheet mumbo-jumbo, @Lord Gorgon for harsh opinions and @Purific, @MatiasKurt, @That1Guy, @DarkJailu, @Raul, @Fluffeh, @Zylok for valuable inputs, sorry if I forgot someone who contributed!)
    We'll release the change on the countdown ends. Please forward it to your friends and please keep in mind that if you find something very OP about this, it probably won't last for very long. And if you find it's insufficient, there's a good chance we'll buff it again soon.
    Good luck experimenting, pilots!

    Hi Pilots, 
    We wish you all a very merry christmas from SuperMechs!
    To celebrate, we have a couple of gifts for you.

    On top of that, there's another special treat for those who follow us actively. You can collect a free Snowball Perk - make sure to pass the link on to your friends as well!
    Collect them soon as they'll expire in a few days. Enjoy the game and again, merry christmas!

    Shared-NW reacted to Alexander for a blog entry, Welcome to the new forums!   
    Thank you very much for joining us! 
    As you can see it is quite different from the old ones. We have a lot of new, powerful features (did you see clubs?! You can start your own little forum! On our forum! Check the snazzy discord integration!) and I am sure you'll run into some missing ones as well.
    We'll improve it over time and install plugins and such based on requests. We feel this is a really good base for our new community strategy. 🙂
    Do I hear strategy?
    Offering a discord is just a start. We want these forums to be the best place for people to discuss SuperMechs in a friendly environment, with Discord replacing the Chatting that people did quite a bit too often on the old forums (poor Marija...). Moderation on these will be much, much harsher than the old forums, anyone who doesn't want to contribute positively will simply be shown the door, tone or otherwise. We think this'll mean it'll be a lot more fun here. 🙂 
    The language of these forums is english and... well, obviously some people enjoy fueding. They like to attack each other, turn each other into a joke, for some it's really fun, target or attacker. Additionally there's many languages other than English that we simply cannot adequately moderate. 
    As such we will begin linking other communities in this one soon. The only rules from our end is that they hold a zero tolerance policy on anything harming the game (cheats, hacks, attacks) and will be active enough to moderate out the few people who really don't belong anywhere (racists, sexists, people who threaten others...). 
    If you are interested in having a role in this, please PM me and we can discuss the options, there. We'd love to see a few Reddits, Discords and so on pop up. 
    We will open job applications for a Community Manager this weekend as well!
    Thank you everyone for coming here. I know this will take a bit of getting used to, but together we'll make this into the best place to be on the web. 🙂
