Star Date 22 March, 3013: The Rainbow Raid Mini-War is going rather slowly, likely because you are busy fighting the Shadowscythe at Odessa's War Camp. Hurry up and head over to Braddock Steele in Soluna City (Main Street) to wrap up the Rainbow Raid and get your NEW "Clover Shot" Back Arm weapons!
The specials include credit-stealing, a Luck boost, chance for a critical hit, and "Cloverloaded" Damage Over Time. Thanks to Plasma Charge for the new animation & modifications (to an existing base weapon design) - also for the specials idea, which Vivi coded.
We also put together a promo Front Arm for the Artists of Artix Entertainment Sketchbook coming soon to HeroMart - Thyton's Magitech Scythe. Weapon drawn by Thyton, colored by Dage, and I attached it to an arm designed by Minar which I recolored. Blues designed the specials and Vivi coded them up for us.
Happy (slightly belated) birthday to Gibby! Give him a shout-out on twitter @GibbyAE
Odessa's War Camp: I'm working on a mission which I planned to have done today but time got away from me and I'm still perfecting some of the graphical elements - the quest itself isn't that complicated, but I just want it to be more polished before you unlock it. So go after the Leprescythe & the Lucky Warriors over at the Rainbow Raid while you're waiting!
Have a great weekend and thanks for playing MechQuest!

Star Date: 8 March, 3013
Skip button/ "Free Pass" feature: Many of you have told us that you've had trouble with minigames that prevent you from progressing along the storyline quests - so we've started adding in a "Free Pass" and/or "Skip Button" feature to missions that include minigames. We're gathering a list of those missions on the forums here - if you have one that's tripping you up, please let us know via that link. If you can't post on the forums, please email me (Maegwyn@battleon.com).
Odessa's War Camp: The War Camp setup has been revealing some Gremlins and/or design issues that prevent some people from completing all the storyline missions that are required to unlock Odessa's Missions menu. I know you're really eager to war against those masses of Shadowscythe so we're tweaking those problematic areas/issues while setting up the major epic event.
War. Is. Inevitable.
|Certain to happen; unavoidable: "war was inevitable".|
|A situation that is unavoidable.|
|unavoidable - inescapable - ineluctable - necessary|
*Google define inevitable: results
Vivi Levels Up! That's right, tomorrow is Vivi's birthday! It snuck up on me like a ninja so I don't have a birthday hat or anything set up (of course I #BlamePractel2013...) - we should all wish him a happy birthday on twitter - #ViviLevelsUp @AE_Vivi
Enjoy your weekends, everyone!

Greetings. Things are not as grim as my title suggests. Unfortunately Maegwyn has been having power issues which has caused us to fall behind on this week's release! Obviously this is very unfortunate and certainly not something we're happy about but until I gain phenomenal cosmic powers, there's nothing I can do about it. :(
What I can do about it is give an extra EXP and Credit weekend. So I did. Right now you can get 50% extra credits and EXP. Technically you get 75% if you're SC. So it should be pretty sweet. It's largely untested for balance so it may be giving out too much. I have no idea but I figure if it does, then it's a database error in your favor(pass go).
So please bare with us as we conquer these technical issues and get back on track. Chances are the releases will resume next week. The boost will end Monday at the soonest, Friday at the latest. So get in there while you can if you're just starting up!
Once again, I apologize(have I apologized yet? If not, I should have which I apologize for that) for the inconvenience and I hope everyone has a great weekend.
