New this week in Thunder Run:
Over three years ago, the Elite Generals of Gundar united together and stood strong to vanquish the forces of the evil Segvec and his deadly Virus. Now, Segvec has returned, and he brings with him a new and even more powerful Virus that now once again threatens all the armies of Gundar, and all of humanity. This is no longer just a battle of conquest, but one of survival! Segvec and his forces need to be stopped again, here and now, and if we don’t stand as one, we face inevitable extinction…
Virus (Normal) and Virus (Heroic) campaign difficulties are the same as they were before, so players who didn’t have an opportunity get the speedrun achievement before can get it now! Beware: Virus (Epic) difficulty has been updated to match the current state of the game’s unit balance, and has some nasty new surprises as a result. But achievement hunters rejoice: there’s a new achievement for defeating the Epic Virus campaign in 2020! Do you have what it takes to vanquish the virus?
Level 16 Elite Nimr/Elite BTR-90
The Level 16 Elite Nimr and Elite BTR90 are here.
As with the recent max unit level increases, your Level 16 Elite Nimr and Elite BTR-90 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!
And that’s not all, Commanders! Here’s a recap of the other “Voice of the Commander” centric game improvements we’ve made this week:
- Damage Booster Nodes are officially retired/refunded, and this week is your last chance to get the Defense Booster Nodes if you want the achievement. Like the damage booster nodes, and the legacy unit equips we recently retired, these items will become unavailable next Thursday. Unlike the legacy unit equips, the legacy Security Nodes will disappear without you needing to do anything. Defense only this week, and Range 2 weeks from now. The new crafted node system will go up right after the last legacy items are refunded and removed.
- A nasty bug appeared that was causing issues with Battle History/Battle Log viewing, but it was fixed within 5-minutes (go bh-nirgal!). Battle logs should now appear properly in all games. Bear in mind, some of the oldest battle logs may no longer be available, but this should only apply for logs older than two years. Please let us know if there are any issues!
