More Hardware Loot & TOC Officer Improvements

New this week in Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

More Hardware Loot

This week’s Ambush! enemy (Single Player only) features larger and more frequent Hardware loot than before.

TOC Officer Cost Reduction

The Hardware cost to upgrade TOC Leaders between Levels 1-20 has been reduced by 33%.

TOC Officer L21+ Trade-Ins

Level 21+ TOC Leaders can now be traded in for a partial return of the Hardware used to upgrade them.

Didn’t get the type of TOC Leader you were hoping for in the L20->L21 upgrade step, when bonus stats are randomized? Trade in the unwanted Leader! Move him into your Warehouse, click his icon, and use the “Trade In” option.

The amount of Hardware you will get for the trade-in appears at the bottom of the information tooltip on the TOC Leader item.

Notes:

  • TOC Leaders can only be traded in at Level 21 and higher. Level 20 and below are not eligible for trade-in.
  • The amount of Hardware returned is limited by your Hardware Depot storage space. Any returned Hardware that does not fit in your Depot storage will be lost – so check your Depots before trading!

Good hunting, Commanders!

New this week in Days of Valor:

Elite Rifleman Equipment

  • Ballistic Armor, AP Ammunition, and Laser Sights are now available for the Elite Rifleman.
    Check Event Prizes → Unit Equipment for details.

Patch Notes

Technical updates taking effect this week:

  • When relocating your base within the same map, you are now guaranteed to move at least 3 hexes away from your current location. Previously, there was a chance you could get unlucky and be “moved” only a single hex.
  • The 30-minute temporary Rifleman Damage, Range, and Speed boost items now affect Elite Riflemen as well.
    • Note: permanent AP Ammunition, Laser Sights, and Ballistic Armor items are different for regular Riflemen and Elite Rifleman. This follows the same pattern as other Elite unit equipment.
  • A code problem that sometimes caused players to see a “white screen” error on login has been fixed.
  • A technical problem that sometimes caused Internet Explorer users to disconnect after the end of a battle has been fixed.

Good hunting, Commanders!

Turret Improvements

Turret Improvements

New this week in Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

Improved turrets
  • C-RAM, M45 Quadmount, and FASCAM weapons now have more damage and range at all upgrade levels. (specific boost amounts vary by level, but are around 10%).

This change is designed to raise the power of these rare blueprint-based turrets to better match the difficulty of obtaining them.

Check the Hardware Prizes store to obtain blueprints for these turrets, plus other powerful weaponry!

Disconnection Bugs Squashed

Disconnection Bugs Squashed

Good news for players of all Battlehouse games, including Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

In an update rolled out this week, we fixed bugs and added features to reduce the chance that players get disconnected from our servers during gameplay. This means you are now much less likely to get the dreaded “boot” from the game.

While we can’t guarantee 100% reliability under all conditions, data since the update shows the chance of disconnection is now about one-third of what it used to be.

Graph of network problems before and after this week’s update

Help us improve by reporting network problems

If you are still getting “booted” from the game often, please let us know so that we can investigate the problem.

To make the most helpful report, please use the Contact Support link in-game and include the following details:

  • The “Code:” number shown in the disconnection message
  • What you were doing in the game when you got booted (in battle? looking at the regional map? just sitting at home base?)
  • Your network connection type: Wi-fi, 3G/4G, or Wired

Good hunting, Commanders!
