DV: “Instant Building” Upgrade Changes, Elite Stinger Gunner AI Base Updates, and more – November 21st Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

“Instant Building” Upgrade Changes

Hey Commanders! Wishing you didn’t have to wait for a building upgrade to finish before you’re able to upgrade a Barrier? We know at least a few of you are, and we’re hearing your feedback loud and clear!

Effective earlier this week: Players now have the ability to build and upgrade “instant buildings” (Barriers, Minefields, and Ambush Points). If you have a lot of spare resources and want to spend them on barriers during a long upgrade, now is the time!

Elite Stinger Gunner AI Base Updates

Last week we released a buff for the Elite Stinger Gunner, and the effect it had on the difficulty of AI Event Bases was understandably causing some frustrations players. After discussing player feedback with the team, we have opted to remove the Elite Stinger Gunner from all AI bases, and replace them with non-elite versions.

For more information regarding this change, and a peak into future unit changes that are in the pipeline, check out this this week’s edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

User Interface Update

And that’s not all, Commanders! Also new this week is the ability to view stats on a building while it’s upgrading. When a building is in the process of upgrading, simply click the building followed by the new “View Stats” button to open the building info window.

Good hunting, Commanders!

Battlehouse Dev Blog, Issue #9: Thunder Run and Days of Valor Updates

📢 Attention Thunder Run and Days of Valor Commanders:

Welcome to the 9th installment of the Battlehouse Dev Blog, a place where fans of all Battlehouse games can enjoy regular behind the scenes peaks into the minds of Battlehouse Developers. Without further adieu, here’s bh-nirgal with some more development updates for TR and DV:

Thunder Run and Days of Valor Developments

Let’s take a moment to recap a recent change. As part of the release of the TOC12 infantry buildings and the new L16 for non-elite infantry, we reworked one of the least-used elite infantry units (Elite Stinger Gunner) and put it on sale.

One of the things we do behind the scenes is examining the stats of deployments of unit types, adjusted for their unit space costs, and trying to encourage a reasonable distribution of deployments. Obviously some units are better for base defense, others are preferable for AI events, and others are probably better suited to attacking bases. We expect player favorites to emerge.

When one unit is the most common by a disproportionate amount, or when a unit barely makes a blip in the stats, we try to adjust things to give players incentive to adopt and deploy more variety. Sometimes, we discover that the popularity was due to a bug. For example, the Elite AH-64 was stunning aircraft a while ago, but was only intended to stun turrets. Other times, it is far more powerful than any other unit of its type, as it was when the Elite TOS-1A outclassed all other long-range ground attacks. We sometimes have to adjust the popular unit, but we normally don’t want to completely remove something the players are enjoying. Because of this preference, we usually buff other units rather than directly nerf a unit.

The Elite Stinger Gunner was chosen for a major refit because it was both very rare in deployments and was also originally designed as a direct counter to helicopters. The Elite AH-64 happened to be a disproportionately popular unit, with well over half of all unit deployments being Elite AH-64s. We balanced the new Elite Stinger Gunner stats to make it so that it could not kill an Elite AH-64 of equal upgrade level in one shot, but could be killed by the Elite AH-64 quite easily. This meant that massed Elite Stingers would win against lone Elite Apaches, but some clever maneuvering with Elite Apaches would keep winning.

New Elite Stinger Gunner Stats

There were two problems with this. First, the Elite Stinger Gunner’s unlock requirements were balanced for a pre-Hardware era. It is much faster to unlock an Elite Stinger Gunner to maximum level than an Elite Apache, so the average encounter was usually between higher level Elite Stingers and lower level Elite Apaches. The second is that there were far more Elite Stinger Gunners on AI single player bases and AI multiplayer map bases than we realized.

We debated making an AI-only “classic” Elite Stinger while giving the players the new Elite Stinger, or swapping all Elite Stingers on AI bases for basic Stingers, which are closer in stats to the old Elite Stinger. We chose the latter option so we could get it to players faster, but the idea of “Mercenary” units with legacy stats going into AI bases is something we’re strongly considering for future adjustments.

Moving forward, we’re going to try to keep players in the loop on planned changes to existing units, especially when they affect event bases.

During the week that the TOC12 patch enables new Maintenance Bay and Motor Pool levels (coming soon!), we’ll be updating the Elite BDRM-3. Our analysis shows that it is the least used elite vehicle, and multiple players have requested an update. We’re hoping to make it more in line with the Elite Stryker, except that it will deal less damage per shot and focus more on spreading damage around with its AoE attack. I’d like to make the fire damage it causes weaken a target against long-ranged attack, so it would make sense to send a BDRM-3 “shock team” in ahead of an artillery barrage. Since there are a total of 453 Elite BRDM-3s spread across all of the event bases, this is probably a good candidate to test the “Mercenary” concept so that AI base difficulty doesn’t change. Ideally, you’d see the AIs with the current version of the Elite BDRM-3, only renamed “Mercenary BDRM-3”, while players would get the updated stats version.

Short version: Expect the unit to be much harder to kill and to debuff enemy defenses, but not be a very long-ranged unit. Full details will be in the eventual patch notes.

During the week that the TOC12 patch enables new Maintenance Hangar and Airfield levels (coming after the Maintenance Bay and Motor Pool updates), we’ll be updating the Elite AH-1. Our analysis shows that it is the least used helicopter. It has been difficult to find a niche for this unit, so I’m thinking that it will play “overwatch” against incoming anti-aircraft fire. Think of the anti-missile stat on some buildings, except it only affects ground to air missiles instead of air to ground missiles. Since only the Stinger, Elite Stinger, and Elite Nimr use ground to air missiles (all other Anti-Air is bullet-based), the Elite AH-1 will also have a defense boost similar to the Elite MQ8B’s offense boost.  Deploying an Elite AH-1 with your group should be an interesting option with these changes. It won’t be the most powerful unit around, but it will increase the survivability of others.

Short version: Expect the unit to become harder to kill and to buff friendly air units against anti-air attacks.

Discord Dev Tracker Recap

It was a busy week in Discord. Here’s the recap of the dev-tracker channel:

  • Nirgal kept us updated on work done on two highly-requested UI features, the ability to view building stats while upgrading, and the ability to have buildings that require zero build time to bypass the building queue. Both patches were completed and sent to the rest of the dev team for review.

Stay up to date every day on what’s being developed on the dev-tracker channel here.

DV: Maintenance Bay/Motor Pool Upgrades, L16 Vehicles, and more – November 14th Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

Maintenance Bay/Motor Pool Upgrades

To further build upon the release of Tactical Ops Center Level 12 last month, and the new Infantry tier 2 weeks ago, Gundar Arms Industries has decided it’s time to give our Vehicle units some love. Effective today:

  • Maintenance Bay is now upgradeable to L17.
  • Motor Pool is now upgradeable to L15.

Take advantage of these upgrades today to start researching and building Level 16 Vehicles!

Level 16 Vehicles

The Level 16 GPW, M4A1 Mortar, M8 Greyhound, M12 GMC, M4A2 Sherman, M26 Pershing, Adler Kfz, Nimr, SdKfz 234, Sherman Flame, Truck Bomb, M4A1 Transport, Panzerwerfer, MSTA, Panzer IV are here.

As with the recent max unit level increases, your Level 16 Vehicles 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 your L16 Vehicles. As long as you have TOC12 and the new building levels for your Maintenance Bay and Motor Pool, you can upgrade away!

Return of the Elite M26 Pershing

As of today, the Elite M26 Pershing L7+ Blueprints and Sub-Components are back and available for all! No need to grab the L7 blueprint if you didn’t get it before. Just start upgrading!

In addition, Level 2 Unit Equipment is now available! Purchase more Level 1 equipment sets in the ONP Store, and combine the parts in the Weapons Factory to make new Level 2 sets:

Elite Stinger Gunner Boost/Sale

The Elite AH-64 Apaches claim to own the skies these days, but our Elite Stinger Gunners have something to say about that. It’s time to remind your rivals of the meaning of fear. Effective today for the Elite Stinger Gunner:

  • Splash range has increased from 70 to 140.
  • Damage per second has increased to 66% of an Elite AH-64 Apache’s HP. Not quite enough to one-shot kill them, but close!

Battlehouse Dev Blog, Issue #8: Thunder Run and Days of Valor Updates

📢 Attention Thunder Run and Days of Valor Commanders:

Welcome to the 8th installment of the Battlehouse Dev Blog, a place where fans of all Battlehouse games can enjoy regular behind the scenes peaks into the minds of Battlehouse Developers. Without further adieu, here’s bh-nirgal:

Thunder Run and Days of Valor Developments

There was a lot of active discussion on Discord over the weekend about our plans to “squash” some of the development time for things in the game. I first mentioned this in the inaugural blog post back in September. Instead of a link, here’s the original text:

  • “The third project, slated for an uncertain future date, is a rebalancing of the TOC tiers. This is one of the less-defined plans, and player feedback is highly encouraged. Ideally, I’d like to see the average player base level increase so that the top-tier players have worthwhile opponents to fight and the average player can hold their own. This would involve reducing research and building times for lower building levels and lower tech levels, and would involve reducing prices for older blueprints (or removing them altogether for some lower turret levels).”

Some veteran players expressed concern about the impact on the game, especially if it means that alt accounts can get powered up too quickly.

These are some fair concerns. It probably would be disruptive to significantly lower the time needed to research offensive technologies by too much.

We’re still a ways out from the rebalancing of lower content tiers, but it is probably best to focus on infrastructure, such as building upgrade times and costs, rather than on force projection, such as unit research and build times.

The one category that this probably shouldn’t apply is what we internally call “core units”. These are the units that you do not need a blueprint to unlock: the Rifleman, Mortarman, Javelin Gunner, Sniper, HMMWV, M1064, Stryker, M109 Paladin, M2 Bradley, M1 Abrams, OH-58 Kiowa, AH-1 Cobra, and AH-64 Apache.

These are weaker units, but in some cases they take a significant amount of time and resources to unlock, to the point that only extreme completionists are bothering to do so for achievements. Given the wealth of premium content, we’ll probably need to spend some time making a few these less-used “core units” more accessible to players.

Discord Dev Tracker Recap

It was a busy week in Discord. Here’s the recap of the dev-tracker channel:

  • Nirgal kept us updated on work done on the L5 Leaders for TR and DV, and also mentioned that h’d started the next FS content tier.
  • Nirgal completed several bugfixes, which included some issues with the new TOC12 weapons, the C-RAM turret, and several AI maps
  • We got a sneak peek at some of the in-progress work on the L5 leaders.
  • Nirgal reported that the L5 leaders patch was done and being reviewed by the rest of the dev team prior to deployment, and announced the order of work on the next several projects.

Stay up to date every day on what’s being developed on the dev-tracker channel here.

DV: Level 15 Aircraft Unit Extravaganza – November 7th Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

Level 15 Aircraft Unit Extravaganza

Heads up, Commander! It’s an aircraft unit upgrade extravaganza! The Level 15 OH-58 Kiowa, AH-1 Cobra, and AH-64 Apache are here.

As with the recent max unit level increases, your Level 15 OH-58 Kiowa, AH-1 Cobra, and AH-64 Apache will also 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 Level 15 OH-58 Kiowa, AH-1 Cobra, and AH-64 Apache upgrades require a blueprint that can only be purchased during Hardware Event Weeks in the Hardware Prize Store. We will continue to release similar levels in this catch-up mechanic boost to more core units going forward. Good hunting, Commanders!

L14 -> L15 OH-58 Kiowa Stats
L14 -> L15 AH-1 Cobra Stats
L14 -> L15 AH-64 Apache Stats

More UI Updates

A couple minor patches were also deployed earlier this week that address two UI improvements that were requested by you the players. Effective now:

  • The Unit Blueprints and Elite Blueprints sections of the store are now divided into sections for Infantry, Vehicle, and Aircraft. Furthermore, the Unit Equipment section of the store is now divided into sections for Infantry, Vehicles, Aircraft, Elite Infantry, Elite Vehicles, and Elite Aircraft. We’re hoping this will make it a little easier to find the upgrades you’re looking for.
  • You can now move buildings while they are crafting, repairing, or upgrading.
Updated “Elite Blueprints” section in the ONP Store

Bug Fix

Last but not least, a bug fix patch has been applied to all Battlehouse games:

As most of you probably already know, there is a limit to how many buffs a player can apply to themselves at any given time. A long standing bug was making it so debuffs were also counting towards the buff limit. They are no longer doing so. Time to energize those boosts!

Battlehouse Dev Blog, Issue #7: Thunder Run and Days of Valor Updates

📢 Attention Thunder Run and Days of Valor Commanders:

Welcome to the 7th installment of the Battlehouse Dev Blog, a place where fans of all Battlehouse games can enjoy regular behind the scenes peaks into the minds of Battlehouse Developers. Last week, bh-nirgal provided some updates on current projects he’s working on for MF, WSE, TR, and DV and this week he’s diving deeper into some of the juicy details surrounding his TR and DV developments. So without further adieu, here’s bh-nirgal:

Thunder Run and Days of Valor Developments

The ability to move buildings while they are “busy” has been added to the engine. Both Thunder Run and Days of Valor players can move upgrading, crafting, or repairing buildings now. The next engine quality of life change will be to enable accessing building stats while the building is “busy”. This will take slightly longer, since it will affect more portions of the engine.

Many players have requested that Unit Equipment be broken up by unit type. A working prototype of this was developed over the weekend, and is being fine-tuned before release to Days of Valor and then Thunder Run.

Unit Equipment section in the ONP Store

Days of Valor and Thunder Run players may notice that Unit Blueprints and Elite Unit Blueprints are now split into Infantry, Vehicles, and Aircraft sub-sections. This will make it a little easier to get to some of the blueprints.

The Level 5 leaders, along with the alternative leader update system, is well underway. This will mostly affect how players buy leaders and how players upgrade leaders. The new L5 leaders will be stronger versions of the existing L4 leaders and will not introduce any new mechanics other than how you upgrade to get them.

Buying leaders: Right now, the store entries for each leader checks if you have any level of the leader, and whether you can still upgrade the leader. If so, it lets you buy another leader. Since we’re changing the crafting system, the main listing for leaders will let you buy a leader if you don’t have any level of the leader.
Old system: 1x L3 leader, 1x L2 leader = can buy another L1 leader
New system: 1x L3 leader = cannot buy another leader

Upgrading leaders: The upgrade menu in the Leader Barracks now has three “recipes” for upgrading each leader to each level from 2 through 4.

  • There’s a legacy recipe that you’ll never see. This will keep any upgrades in process when we deploy the patch from disappearing.
  • There’s a “merge” recipe, which normally doesn’t show. This works the same way as you’re used to. If you have two leaders of the same level, this recipe will show up so you can upgrade them. If you only have one leader, it won’t show up.
  • There’s a “promote” recipe, which displays if the “merge” recipe doesn’t display. The engine seamlessly switches between the two. A “promotion” recipe requires a leader and “Promotion Orders”, an item you can acquire in the store. There are four levels of Promotion Order. A promotion order is more expensive than a leader, but the Hardware cost and time required to Promote is significantly less than combining multiple leaders.

The upgrade times and costs have been changed. To determine the new costs and times, I added the upgrade time and upgrade cost for each level, divided it by the number of recipes, and rounded it down. This means that individual leaders might take longer and cost more, but taken as a whole L2, L3, and L4 all take less time and cost less.

To try to bring some balance the greater number of upgrades required under the old system, it takes twice as long to do a promotion upgrade as a merge upgrade. Bear in mind, you have to craft L1 to L2 four times and L2 to L3 twice to get to L4, so there is a time savings in the L1 to L2 stage.

Buying Promotion Orders: The Promotion Order items will appear before the Alpha Team in the leaders section of the store. If you don’t like the new system, you’re in luck! The old store listings will be in a sub-section of the Promotion Order.  You can still buy all 8 level 1 leaders required to upgrade a leader to L4, or you can buy the 1 leader and 4 Promotion Orders required to upgrade. It’s your choice.

L5 Leaders only support the new Promotion Order method of upgrading. You will not be combining two L4 Leaders.

DV: Academy/Barracks Upgrades, L16 Infantry, TOC Weapons, and more – October 31st Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

Academy/Barracks Upgrades

To further build on the release of Tactical Ops Center Level 12 two weeks ago, Gundar Arms Industries has decided it’s time for an Infantry training overhaul. Effective today:

  • The Academy is now upgradeable to L17.
  • The Barracks is now upgradeable to L18.

Take advantage of these upgrades today to start researching and training Level 16 Infantry!

Level 16 Infantry

Heads up, Commander! The Level 16 Rifleman, Mortarman, Machine Gunner, Javelin Gunner, Stinger Gunner, Combat Engineer and Sniper are here.

As with the recent max unit level increases, your Level 16 Infantry 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 your L16 Infantry. So as long as you have TOC12 and the new building levels for your Academy and Barracks, you can upgrade away!

TOC Weapons

It’s time to turn your Level 12 Tactical Ops Center into a defense machine, because TOC Weapons are here! Now available in the ONP Store for players with TOC12:

  • TOC LRAD Weapon – This sonic weapon disorients and confuses enemy troops.
  • TOC HEL Weapon – This scientific breakthrough can blind all units and defend against incoming missiles.

To equip your TOC Weapons: purchase the blueprints in the ONP Store during an ONP Event week, activate the blueprints from your Warehouse, and then click on your TOC followed by “Change Weapon” similar to how you would if you were arming a turret head to a turret emplacement.

These TOC weapons are currently upgradeable to L10, so be sure to check out the “Weapons” section of your Weapons Lab for upgrade options.

Pictured Above: L12 TOC sporting an L1 TOC HEL Weapon

User Interface Update

And that’s not all, Commanders! Oooh, no- That is not all. We’ve been hearing community feedback loud and clear, and one game improvement that’s been a common suggestion from you the players for a long time now has been giving you guys the ability to close or hide some of the in-game menus that take up lots of valuable screen space. Guess what? We’ve delivered. Effective as of earlier this week:

  • Click the “down” arrow in the bottom left of your game window to hide your trusty advisor Candace.
  • Click the “down” arrow in the bottom middle of your game window to hide your friends bar.
  • Click the “down” arrow in the bottom right of your game window to hide weekly event information.
    • All of these elements can be brought back by clicking the “up” arrows that remain, and the bottom left arrow will flash if Candace has any new messages for you that require your attention.

Battlehouse Dev Blog, Issue #6: War Star Empire, Mars Frontier, Thunder Run, and Days of Valor Updates

📢 Attention War Star Empire, Mars Frontier, Thunder Run, and Days of Valor Commanders:

Welcome to the 6th installment of the Battlehouse Dev Blog, a place where fans of all Battlehouse games can enjoy regular behind the scenes peaks into the minds of Battlehouse Developers. Last week, bh-nirgal took a deep dive into some of the current projects he’s working on for Battlefront Mars, and this week he’s providing us all some updates on his War Star Empire, Mars Frontier, Thunder Run, and Days of Valor projects. So without further adieu, here’s bh-nirgal:

War Star Empire and Mars Frontier Developments

War Star Empire has received a lot of dev cycles over the past year, thanks mostly to the presence of Promethium in the game. The three currencies allowed a 1 to 1 conversion and reskin of the turret system in Thunder Run, Days of Valor and Firestrike. I have a few minor changes in the pipeline, but I want to give players time to finish off the Central Computer L8 tier of content.  I do have some questions for players:

  • Would you prefer more levels of existing units, elite versions of existing units, both, or neither?
  • Would you like more defenses like mines, or no?
  • Would you like to be able to swap out the security teams on your buildings with ones made up of different units?

Mars Frontier is our quietest group of fans. Other than making an Opportunity Rover building security team add-on in memorial to our little rover friend, I haven’t spent much time working on Mars Frontier, and I’ve never received any requests or feedback from the player base. Is there anything you all would like to see, or are you pretty happy right now?

Thunder Run and Days of Valor Developments

Days of Valor has had the economy portion of the TOC12 patch for two weeks, and will get the Infantry patch tomorrow. Thunder Run is getting the economy portion of the TOC12 patch tomorrow. Portions of this patch will automatically unlock through January.

Now that this project has shipped, I’ll be tackling a major redesign of the introduction tutorial and rebalance of lower levels of content. There are two versions of the new player tutorial being tested in Days of Valor. We try to test and fine-tune things like these to see if we can figure out what will acquire and retain more new players. Based on the numbers in Days of Valor, we’ll either incorporate the new tutorial into Thunder Run as-is, or make tweaks to both the Days of Valor and Thunder Run versions. Once this is ready, we’ll be launching some new ad campaigns. I hope this will answer some of the good player questions we had on what we’re doing to grow the game.

While this is going on, I am working on some small UI changes and improvements. I’m testing the ability to move buildings that are being constructed, repaired, or are crafting in Days of Valor. Its release to the other games is pending.

I added in the ability to toggle the advisor and opponent AI portraits. It was deployed to Days of Valor for testing on October 26, and will be added to Thunder Run on October 31.

Battlehouse.com Forums/Clan HQ Community Moving To Discord

This week in Thunder Run, and all other Battlehouse Games: our on-site Forums will be archived and will be officially replaced with the new Thunder Run Discord Server, which offers exciting benefits like voice chat, better moderation features, and official “Ask a Dev” events. Clan HQ will also be closing down at a later date.

Forums Transition to Discord

Effective this Wednesday, October 30th: the Battlehouse.com Forums will be put into “archive mode” and will no longer be allowing new posts. The forums will remain in read-only status so that various popular player guides and feedback records will still be accessible for your reference.

A banner at the top of the forums will re-direct everyone to our official Thunder Run Discord Server where our Community and Design teams will continue to participate in chats with the player-base, and continue to log all player feedback for future game design considerations.

Clan HQ Transition to Discord

At a later “to be decided” date, Clan HQ will also be shutting down and redirecting players to Discord in a similar fashion.

Players who routinely use Clan HQ are encouraged to start using the Thunder Run Discord Server as we work towards finalizing this transition. Clan HQ users from other Battlehouse Games will find an “Other Battlehouse Games” section in the list of available Discord channels where they can continue chatting about their favorite Battlehouse game in the appropriate game channel as they were in Clan HQ.

If there is enough player demand for any particular Battlehouse Game other than Thunder Run, the Community team may choose to create separate dedicated Discord servers for other games.

More information about the specific date of the Clan HQ migration will be coming soon.

Good hunting, Commanders!
