My Super Mechs Experience.


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! This is my first time posting on a forum, so forgive me if I make any mistakes. I'm on a short break from University and have comeback to my hometown, it's where I began playing Super Mechs in 2015. I was 12 about that time (I just turned 20 last April, it's crazy how time passed!). I think about super mechs every now and then, it's the one of the very few games that I played, and put so much time and effort in. Despite all that, I was never able to win any medals or join any top clans (I guess you could say it was a skill issue 😛). Feeling very nostalgic, I thought why not share my experience.

It all started in the summer of 2015 (sorry for the cliché opening haha). If I had to name a summer that I can remember when I was super carefree and without any real life worries, it'd be that summer. My parents weren't with me, my relatives were super chill and let me do anything I wanted to do. They'd let me turn on the AC, and god! Playing on the computer all day while having the AC on, and waking up and sleeping whenever I wanted - there was nothing more I could ask for at that time. It's something I can't do at my home cause my parents are Asian and, of course, very strict.

I can't remember how exactly I discovered Super Mechs, but I ended up playing it on Facebook later on, which was a grave mistake that I had not known at that time. I will elaborate on this later. Super Mechs was the first game that I played that had a leaderboard, global chat, and everything. It's what helped me learn a lot about how to text in English, talking to people from different parts of this world, and making my first friends online!

The weekly rankings and leaderboard were so exciting to me! The idea of having your name pop up on everyone's screens and being the best in the whole world was crazy. The same clans would be on the very top week after week, the two of which I remember and idolized were HardToKill and LittleLost your lost, they were the clans that dominated the leaderboards and had so many clan medals to show their superiority and the very best players of all time in them. The young me had decided to become one of the best and become a part of these clans, regardless of what it takes. I slaved away and grinded for hours - almost 10 hours or more each day. During this time, I joined a clan and met people who, like me, were also on their summer breaks. We all grinded and talked about SM all day, fantasizing about reaching the top ranks one day. We had also become quite close during this time. It was when I had made my very first friend online, his username was Henryguanna. Unfortunately, as the time passed, their spirits dampened down and they become less and less active, only to disappear one day. Meanwhile I continued to slave away, my rank was a skull within a few weeks' time or less. I had also gotten 4 mythicals, using which I had made an electric mech (I rocked an electric mech for the entirety of the time I played Super Mechs).

Unfortunately, the summer came to an end, and I had to go back home. I could no longer spend 10 hours a day; the most I could do was an hour or two. I was still very passionate about Super Mechs, and I would talk about it to my friends in school and my cousins. I managed to get quite a few of them into the game. After a long long time, I got an opportunity to join a clan that was in the top 10 or 20 in the world. I was so happy! I had to defeat one of the members, and I was successful in doing so with my Ultraspade electric mech. Although it wasn't my dream clan, I was still so very happy that I finally got there. Though, I woke up the next day to discover that I was kicked. The reason being that I was too inactive. I was surprised cause it was just the day before that I joined the clan, but then soon understood the difference between the top clans and an average clan. The top clans required you to be active multiple times in the same day, and this was unfortunately just impossible for me as I was allowed to play for a short period only at a particular time of the day. During this time, I was still ranking in the top 20 online players in the world. After a while, I managed to get into the very same clan again, but guess what... I was again kicked out again the very next day xD. 

Around this time, Ssundee started playing Super Mechs, and I remember getting a lot of free mythical boxes. I had rather bad luck and only had about 4 mythical items before then, but thanks to the free boxes, I was able to get quite a few. This was quite an exciting time. My memory has been rather hazy past that, to when I was selected for the BETA program. I don't know on what basis people were selected, though this made me feel kinda special, but little did I know my time on SM was coming to an end. I entered the program and all my items were gone, this made my dumbass panic and in an attempt to leave the program, I accidentally disconnected my Facebook from Super Mechs, and hence, was lost my account. I couldn't recover it, as I said I played Super Mechs on Facebook, the only connection to my SM account was through Facebook. Thus ended my Super Mechs career. You could say it was rather mediocre; I never had any medals to show, nor was I part of any of the top clans. No one would remember I even played the game as I had achieved nothing significant. The only highlights of my career were defeating the original Dewah77; I managed to win against his meta mech with my electric mech, and ranking in the top 10 online players at a particular time. Well, defeating Dewah77 was quite something to me as he was sort of a legend back then. Maybe my SM career wasn't all that insignificant haha. 

After a few years, I joined a few Super Mechs discord servers. I've to say that I felt quite envious of the people from the top clans. They still kept in touch with each other after all these years and remembered their former clanmates. They had a strong sense of community and brotherhood that survived all this time. To be able to reminisce the past with each other is truly something I find quite enviable. This was something I couldn't relate to cause all my friends and clanmates had disappeared in a matter of time with no way to contact them. Our bonds weren't as strong and our brotherhood fell apart. It's a shame. But I would say all the top players deserve what they have for the time and effort they put in. Although I had my share of fun playing Super Mechs and it did teach me great lot of things, and gave me many exciting experiences. It was very fun and will be something I'll remember for the rest of my life. Nevertheless, I'll try contribute in any way I can and try to be a part of this community as this game really means a lot to me. I'm a weeb now and there being an Anime/Manga club helps a lot haha. Anyway, that was my Super Mechs experience. I'd love to hear about other people's experiences and stories. That's all for now, bye bye o/
