TR: Welcome to Season 22! New “Ultra Dome” map, 75% sale, and more – April 1st Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Welcome to Season 22!

Welcome to Season 22! Going into the new season, all Leaderboards and PvP Points are reset, meaning that it’s a fresh start for YOUR Clan to be the new the dominating Clan of Gundar, and win the Seasonal Clan Tournament Grand Prize of 10,000 Gold for your Clan at the end of the Season in 3 months from now. Does your Clan have what it takes?

New “Ultra Dome” map

Welcome to the Ultra Dome, Commander! This season, we’re adding another Dome map for higher level players. So if you want increased PvP Points, increased Quarry output, and increased event base rewards, this is the map for you!

The Ultra Dome requires a TOC9 or higher to enter, and will be anti-alt and anti-VPN. Should you move out of the Ultra Dome at any point, any accumulated PvP Points will be lost.

Also starting this season, all Dome maps will have no shields or damage protection allowed.

Get ready to rumble in the new dome, Commander!

April Fool’s Sale!

“They said there’d never be a 75% off sale again… But surely we can sneak in a quick one for all of our favorite Commanders to celebreate April Fools Day, right?

From midnight April 1st to midnight April 2nd GMT, take advantage of this explosive 75%-gold sale! After April Fools, a normal 50%-off sale will remain available from midnight April 2nd to midnight April 5th.

This is not an April Fools joke! Or is it?”

Kongregate accounts news

Beginning April 1st, Kongregate accounts will be moved to Kongregate-only maps unless they fit one of the following criteria:

  • At least 6 months old
  • At least Level 6 TOC
  • Have bought gold

Please be aware this is not an April fools joke, but a response to Kongregate accounts being used for alt abuse.

Looking for the Season 21 Tournament winners list? Don’t worry. It will be revealed soon. Stay tuned for another Patch Notes coming later today!

Season 22 Opens: April 1st, 2021

  • NEW: Welcome to the Ultra Dome! Starting next season, April 1st, a new “Ultra Dome” map opens! It is just like the Thunder Dome, but with increased benefits for higher level and more hardcore players!
    • TOC9+ required to enter
    • Increased PvP points, Quarry output, and event base rewards
    • There will be no shields or damage protection in this map
  • “Thunder Dome” will still be here, but will also have no shields or damage protection for Season 22.

TR: Voice of the Commander Updates, and more – February 4th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Voice of the Commander Updates

We’re celebrating with a quality-of-life update based on your player feedback that’s intended to address a few of the issues and suggestions that you’ve brought forth to us via the “Voice of the Commander” trackers. Don’t see the update you were hoping for in this week’s release? Fear not, as there is still plenty more to come.

For a sneak peak at what’s coming up this season in Battlehouse games, check out the Developer Roadmap in the most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

Chat copy-to-clipboard

Chat messages have been updated. Was that last chat so funny you want to save it forever? Confused if someone using another language is talking trash or feeling friendly? All messages now have a “Copy to Clipboard” feature. You can paste into your favorite translation program or your secret repository of clan messages.

May the ability to translate chat messages bring more understanding and enjoyment of the game rather than less!

New “Repair Base” button

You may notice a new wrench button on your controls. This new repair base feature will allow you to bring back the repair for gold window if you chose “repair slowly”.

It will also inform you via tooltip/hovertext how much gold it will take to fully repair your base.

Best of all, once your buildings hit the free repair threshold, the wrench will turn green, indicating that you can repair all buildings for free with a single click. No more visiting each building in your base and clicking “speed up” when they hit five minutes.

Requirements for next level during upgrade

While upgrades or research are in progress, the resource requirements will now be shown in the Stats window, to allow players to manage their resources more effectively.

Hovering on “Requirements” confirms which level and costs are being shown for.

Level 32 Stinger Turrets

And that’s not all, Commander! Our engineers just had a breakthrough on our Stinger Turrets, and they can now be made stronger than ever. The Stinger Turret level cap has been increased to Level 32!

L32 Stinger Turret Stats

To unlock it, purchase the Stinger Turret Blueprints from the ONP Store, research the tech in your Weapons Lab, and then Equip the new Weapon to one of your Turret Platforms!

For games with more than three rows worth of PvP seasons, the text overlap problem has been fixed and scroll buttons have been added.

TR: Logistics Dispatch Upgrades – January 28th Patch Notes

This weekend in Thunder Run:

Logistic Dispatch Upgrades

Hey Commanders! The Logistics Dispatch has received some upgrades! Starting at TOC L6, you can upgrade your Logistics Dispatch all the way to level 8.

Each new level of the Logistics Dispatch increases the dispatch speed and increases the size of the dispatch rewards. From L2+ the Logistics Dispatch can retrieve Hardware, though this is a very time-consuming operation.

And that’s not all, Commander! All dispatches now receive double the old rewards. Supply dispatches are now available more frequently.

The L2+ Logistics Dispatch center is available today, but you may have noticed that the increased rewards have been around for a couple of days.

Logistics Dispatch now has Hardware

L30 Stinger Turret Stats

To unlock it, purchase the Stinger Turret Blueprints from the ONP Store, research the tech in your Weapons Lab, and then Equip the new Weapon to one of your Turret Platforms!

“Friends Bar” Changes

Due to the changes in the Facebook API, all friend recruitment quests haven’t been working as intended. We’ve decided to disable these quests. If you completed one of these quests, you should see an achievement in the Legacy category:

“Congrats on being such a friendly person!”

For all Facebook games: you will no longer see the friend bar if you have no Facebook friends in game. If you still have the friend bar, you will no longer be prompted or be able to add new friends, but you can still send & receives gifts to the friends that you already have.

  • Firestrike is not affected as it primarily uses the Battlehouse login system.
  • Thunder Run players using the Kongregate platform are not affected.
  • Battlefront Mars players using the Battlehouse login system are not affected.

In the future, we do plan on bringing back the “friends” bar, but more as a “clan bar.” We’re open to player feedback on how they’d like to see this implemented.

If you have any suggestions about this, or any general feedback you’d like to share, please let us know over on our Thunder Run Discord Server.

Please also let players know that longer term we plan to bring the “friends bar” back as a “clan bar”, and are open to player feedback on best ways to execute that.)
