xx 2.1 Update

July 22, 2014, 05:54:59 pm by GangWars
As most of you have noticed, we have been silently patching the game the last few days to clear up bugs + issues that have arisen since release  8) Thanks as usual to everyone who has fed back bugs and helped make this a rather smooth release!

Today, we are upgrading the Advanced Duplicator to the "Advanced Duplicator 2" which clears up a lot of issues from the old advdupe - and will fix annoying things like other people copying your base, and saves with custom materials not working.

This change should occur at 6AM GMT - but it will mean that all your existing Adv Dupe files will be lost! So this news post is here to explain why that happened. We hope you understand, and we are sure you will prefer the new adv dupe as it functions a lot smoother.

xx 2.1 Release

July 18, 2014, 02:19:27 am by GangWars
I'm happy to say that GangWars version 2.1 is now live on the servers!

Its been a fun ride over the last year of GangWars 2.0 and we developers have learned a lot about what players want to see in the game, and what they do not want. We really hope this patch delivers more of what you want, and we plan to keep this up for future updates!

I would like to thank everyone that has helped me organise this update - BloodThirsty & the Admin team have been invaluble in identifying key areas to work on. Cookie, for his lovely art. JoneD, who has produced our new tutorial video as well as being a generally helpful person, Everyone who has been on the test server this last week feeding back bugs, and ofcourse everyone who has supported us through buying credits! It couldn't happen without you guys!

xx Update on The Update!

July 07, 2014, 11:49:42 pm by BloodThirsty

Hey guys! As most of you know, we've been working on an update hoping to fix & polish the game mode a bit more, using the suggestions you have given us along with some of our own ideas. We totally understand that some things about the game mode are iffy, and we have been doing our best to fix these problems and make the game mode a more enjoyable one overall. Obviously to start this off I'm going to summarize some of the things that are happening.

 


Reset:
This is the most essential step to fixing the current game mode, we understand that the Gang Season rewards had almost broken the economy on it's own. We don't want every player running around with maxed gear yet either, as it doesn't really make the game mode any more enjoyable because what really else would there be to do? A reset is also needed because of the features we have changed/removed. You WILL keep your credit items and player names! This includes the ban list, for you banned players we decided this would give you the chance to play again!
 

Removal of Skills:
Skills were and are still a good idea on paper, just not in practice. We've had a lot of problems with skills in the past, and the team and I have decided that they are better off removed from the game mode completely. They do not belong in GangWars, and I know many of you will agree! (Mana will also be removed due to this, obviously).
 
Removal of Shock and Corrode:
We found that these were troublesome overall, we also did not think that we needed as many weapon damage upgrades in total. In addition to this we have also reworked fire and made it viable finally! There is no more resistances to these damages anymore either (obviously).
 
Buying Blueprints:
The blueprint shop has been reduced so that you may only buy blueprints up to level 45, I know we personally liked the idea of you having to drug farm or infuse your printers to get your blueprints, because you're not guaranteed to get the blueprint you want!
 
Infusers:
Are indeed returning, we have found that they were a great idea and decided to bring them back finally, many of you wanted this I know for sure 8). There will be two different kind of infusers, one for Weapon blueprints and one for Armor blueprints.
 
Rivalries & New Gang System:
We decided that rivalries can and were constantly annoying, everyone wants to be in a gang but not everyone can be asked to be killed on sight all the time, it is very troublesome to a lot of players, whether they are new or old. We have also brought gang capping back, with a twist! You will have 3-5 areas around the map that are capturable, you do not need to cap a pole but instead capture the area. I find this feature great and think you guys will too.
 
Healing:
We have decided to remove healing with kits to make game play a bit faster overall, not being able to heal with kits make the game a bit less frustrating too. We have instead balanced ghost times and regen times so that you should be max hp before your enemies' ghost timer is up.
 
Bars:
Instead of fragments, bars now come from forges. From mining you get fragments though.
 
Sprint:
There is no sprinting in the game mode any longer, instead your base speed is fast enough to compensate. This means your shift key does nothing in game.
 
Cops:
We have balanced the Cop profession a bit more as it is a huge topic within the community, as you level the profession you gain speed but lose hp and damage. Cops should not be as bad anymore as they cannot heal like they used to be able to. The Police Department now has a main computer which, when destroyed will kill all the cops and noone can be cop for one hour after.



Hopefully most of you guys will enjoy this update as we have put a lot of time and effort into it, there is no ETA as of right now. We will keep you guys updated!

xx June's First Season Has Ended!

June 16, 2014, 08:11:10 pm by BloodThirsty
Today ends the first Gang Season for June! Stormfront had won by a long shot this season, good job guys! Congratulations to everyone in Stormfront, and to the founder of Stormfront: Chimpballs for becoming an owner of the T-Rex mount! Good work :)

But we cannot forget Divinity who came in second and Divine who came in third, nice job everyone!

The points have been reset and the next season has started, who will win this season? :o Good luck out there!

Also, the Admin Team and I are cracking down on people who are spamming/shitposting regularly, if you are someone who does this, I recommend you stop now! We refuse to tolerate this anymore as it is very frustrating. An example of this would be putting "hi" after your posts. It is very much unneeded on the forums. You've been warned!

Quick edit: Transferring gang points to avoid losing them to rivalry is not allowed, if you are caught doing this you will be punished.

xx May Season's End

June 01, 2014, 06:40:46 pm by BloodThirsty
Today once again ends the final Gang Season for May! Points were juggled toward the end of this season but Pure ended up taking first place for this season! Congratulations to them and to the founder Undead Ned who now has one of the T-Rex mounts!

Also give a round of applause to Arrows for coming in second place and Afro Ninjas for coming in third place! Good job everyone! :D
