BFM: End of Season 13 Clan Tournament

New this week in Battlefront Mars:

End of Season 13 Clan Tournament

From March 26th – April 2nd, 2020, rally your Clan and head to the regional map for your chance to be the strongest Clan of Season 13!

Be one of the Top Clans with the most Clan PvP Points to win between 3,000-10,000 Gold, divided evenly among the top 10 members of your clan.

Tournament ends on April 2nd, 2020 at 1700 GMT, at which point winners will be announced, prizes awarded, and leaderboards will be reset for the new season. It’s important to note that you should stay in the same Clan through the end of the tournament and for at least one hour afterward, until at least 1800 GMT to ensure your Clan’s prizes are scored correctly.

Season 14 opens on April 2nd, 2020!

  • IMPORTANT: Going forward into the new season, PvP points can only be accumulated on “anti-alt” maps.
  • For a sneak peak at what’s coming up next season in Battlehouse games, check out the Developer Roadmap in last week’s edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

MF: COVID-19 – Impact, Helping You Play & Stay Safe

This week in Mars Frontier:

COVID-19 – Impact, Helping You Play & Stay Safe

Attention Commanders,

As COVID-19 is making it’s way across the world, our utmost concern is the health and safety of not only our employees, but also our valued players while we all traverse through this difficult time together. During this time, we urge everyone to follow all guidelines established by both federal and local authorities. If everyone does their part to help mitigate the crisis it will enable all of us to come out the other side of this much sooner.

In the meantime, to help ensure that our players have ample opportunities for entertainment while many of us will be spending more time at home in the coming weeks, we’re offering a “one purchase per player” 50%-off gold sale, and extra free daily combat and base repair kits – both of which can be activated any time throughout at least the next 4 weeks.

  • If you currently have a different sale offer running in-game, the 50%-off sale will start as soon as your current sale offer period ends.
  • The extra free daily repair kits will be claimable via the “Daily Login Reward” system. The repair kits will show as the new reward for the “Daily Login Reward” system, but the normal daily rewards will also appear when you go to place the kits in your Warehouse.
    • The home base repair kit has an expiration time of 18 hours, and the in-combat instant repair kit has an expiration of 30 minutes.

We hope this gesture makes an otherwise stressful time in everyone’s lives even the smallest bit better. More than that – we hope you all stay safe!

Sincerely,

~The Battlehouse Team

TR: Craftable Security Nodes, and L16 Elite BMP-1/Elite TOS-1A – March 12th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Craftable Security Nodes

Following the removal of all legacy-style Security Nodes and achievements over the last several weeks, the all new Craftable Security Node System is finally here! Here’s an overview of how the new system works:

Technology for the Firestorm, Ironsides, and Farsight Security Networks can now be researched and upgraded as high as level 10 within the Weapons Lab. Be sure to go check out and research L1 for each network right away! It’s free!

After the technology is researched, click on any of your base buildings followed by “Change Node” to mount your desired node to each building. While you’re in this menu: you’ll also notice that the exact stats of each node can be seen via pop-up text by hovering your mouse over the node! Better yet, multiple nodes can be crafted at the same time!

New “Change Nodes” Menu (Note: Prices/costs are subject to change.)

We’ll continue to add additional levels for Security Nodes in the future if there is interest, and will also add the ability for players with maxed out techs to research more specialized Security Network techs like “damage/defense” / “range/damage” / “range/defense”, etc.

Nodes also now contain green “area of effect markers” drawn similar to turrets, mines, and ambush points.

Level 16 Elite BMP-1 & Elite TOS-1A

The Level 16 Elite BMP-1 and Elite TOS-1A are here.

As with the recent max unit level increases, your Level 16 Elite BMP-1 and Elite TOS-1A will feature improved stats and no increase in battalion space requirements. As with any improvement in power, there is an increase in cost, production time, and repair time.

The best part about it? No blueprints are required for upgrading. As long as you have TOC12 and the new building levels for your Academy and Barracks, you can upgrade away!

L15 -> L16 Elite BMP-1 Stats
L15 -> L16 Elite TOS-1A Stats

To see where the design team currently stands on various Community suggested features and game improvements, check out the Thunder Run Voice of the Commander Tracker (tracker will receive some clean-up and updates to formatting in the very near future).

For a sneak peak at what’s coming up down the road, check out the “Developer Roadmap” in the most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

Good hunting, Commanders!
