Star Date: 25 October, 3013 a.k.a. 10-25
10-25 Is Now a Holiday! That's right, Mr. Z is coming to Soluna City's Main Street to direct you to the new Holiday Shops! Starting today, 10-25, and lasting for a full 10 days, a selection of 10 items will be offered in these shops for 25% off! That's ten items per shop: ten Starship Items, ten Weapons, and ten Mecha Models. Don't delay - get yours today! Shops will shut down on November 5th.
Have you heard about the...Artix Points Holiday Special - Ends Nov 1, 2013
Get 10% more Artix Points when you purchase using any of the following payment methods:
Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover, PayPal, Visa Delta/Debit/Electron
PayPal, Paymentez Credit Card, ClickandBuy
What are Artix Points, you ask? Artix Points is the new name for BattleOn Game Points. They are the most important and powerful points in the universe. Forged from crystallized dragon’s breath, marbles, and a little duct tape... you can use them in MechQuest to get Nova Gems & Star Captain upgrades - and also with ANY of our Artix Entertainment games to get upgrades, memberships, special items and even other in-game currencies!
Birthday Mecha Delay: We hit a small snag in the production line, but things are rolling along again smoothly at last! We're in the final stages of testing this weekend. The credits versions will be via the merge system, so get your Silver Tokens downstairs at Tek's (you won't need more than five) - they are set up with Star Captain power for all players (higher DPT, or Damage Per Turn, than a normal non-Star Captain model) and if you are a Star Captain you will unlock exclusive specials! AND - the Nova Gem models will have special pricing: only 750 Nova Gems instead of the "normal" 1000! Coming SOON!
Have a great weekend! Thanks for playing MechQuest!

I promised you a Sneak Peek! The birthday mecha is finally rolling down the production line! It will be a few days before it gets coded & tested, but here's what we've got so far https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BW4pzKwCIAAcJ8w.jpg
Mogloween: Soluna City is about to get some decorations - will it be spooky or festive? We'll definitely be setting up replays of years past, and we're also working on some hilarious new content. Things are getting kind of hairy.
It's been a crazy few weeks & I'm looking forward to talking with you more. Have a great weekend! Thanks so much & we'll have some new stuff for you next week!

Use the Help Pages!
Player Support is the first line of defense whenever you have ANY issue, be it payment, account, technical, or game-related, and we personally read EVERY email sent to us. We’re a small team, but we are MIGHTY in our power to help solve your problems and make sure you enjoy our games as much as possible!
The Player Support team is made up of:
- Nythera, head of Player Support
- and Lady Tomo
- Stratos helps too, when he has time!
Where Else to Get Help?
You should only email the Help Pages! For us to help you in the best and fastest way possible, we NEED you to use them, not Twitter, Facebook, or the forum!
If you post on Twitter, Facebook, or the forum, that just means our team members need to redirect you to the Help Pages anyways! (It's also very easy for our team members to miss your important posts on social networking sites, because sometimes they need to sleep.)
Using the Help Pages right from the start means we can start helping you confidentially and directly as soon as we read your email. (Remember, because real people read each email we get, it may take between 1-3 business days to respond!)
Where ARE the Help Pages?
You can find them linked on each of our game websites!
Account Safety Tips
There’s nothing I enjoy less than a stolen account. I’m sure you feel the same way - who wouldn’t?! So here are some tips to help keep your account safe and out of the hands of thieves.
- Never share your account with anyone! Not even a friend. Every person who knows your password makes your account less secure.
- Use a secure password! Use oth letters AND numbers, use both upper and lower case, and make sure your password is at least 8 characters long.
- Confirm your email with us! This makes sure your email can’t be changed without your permission.
- Never enter your account name and/or password into any site or email that isn’t owned by Artix Entertainment!
We Don't Want to Ban or Mute You!
We have rules in place to help keep ALL our players safe and having fun in AQWorlds! Make sure you follow the rules so you don't have your account muted, banned, or disabled! Not sure if something's ok to do? Review the rules!

Practel has taken time away from his essay, "The True Swag of Abraham Lincoln's Beard" to issue you an update to the Practel vs Korin war.
Today I am the bearer of both good and bad news. First up, the bad news.
As of right now, the Practel vs. Korin war is delayed. While most of the art assets are created, a lot of the programming, quest creation, monster creation, etc... still need to happen. Since this was a project intended for me to learn and increase my knowledge with, I didn't want to hand it off to another team member to finish. I'm a firm believer of letting you guys know why it's not ready, and the truth is, I just got slammed with school. Unfortunatly, school is requiring almost all of my time everday. So, development is still going - just at a slower, more comfortable rate. I would wager that you can expect the war in around a month, month and a half's time.
However, onto the good news! Since the war is delayed, it will allow myself and the artists to do a lot more things that we initially couldn't with the time constraints. I really want to make this war ridiculously fun, and over the top. So, while it may be delayed, what you will get in the end is going to be amazing.
Anyways, it's time to get back to the grind. See you starside.

Happy 6th Birthday, MechQuest! Has another whole year gone by already since this time last year? It seems so long ago, while at the same time it feels like it went by in just a blink. Log in now to go downstairs to the party & grab the limited-edition Mecha Models of Yore - and log in this weekend to pick up your commemorative Starship items and see what kind of Birthday Mecha we've cooked up for you!
On behalf of the entire MechQuest team, I'd like to say, "Thank you so much for playing! We love developing new content for you and we're very excited about the year ahead!"
