TR: Welcome to Season 26!

New this week in Thunder Run:

Welcome to Season 26!

Welcome to Season 26! 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 Batch of Elite Unit Skins

Heads up, Commander! The next batch of elite unit skins are here!

The Elite Stinger Gunner, Elite M1 Abrams, and the Elite Harbin Z-9W get their skins this week!

To get them, simply head on over to the Store! You can either go to Store>Cosmetics to purchase them with gold; or go to “Event Prizes” to purchase them with ONP/Hardware.

Friendly reminder that only “basic” skins can be purchased with ONP/Hardware. Premium skins, such as black (and more to come in the future) can only be bought with gold. And of course, red and green skins are free!

New “Edit Scenery UI” Component

And that’s not all, Commanders! We’ve added new button that allows you to interact with placed scenery items on your base. You can find it at the right side of the screen, just below the “Zoom” buttons.

Clicking the icon switches you from “Edit Scenery” to “Editing Scenery” and back.

You can only interact with scenery items when it is on the “Editing Scenery” state. You can also manage your base in this state, but may find moving troops around difficult. So please make sure the icon is on “Edit Scenery” state when you are not fiddling around with scenery items.

Looking for the Season 25 Tournament winners list? Don’t worry. It will be revealed soon. Stay tuned for another Patch Notes coming later on!

We have some exciting news, announcements, and more waiting for you on our most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

Good hunting, Commanders!

Please try to limit the number of scenery items on your base, Commander! Too many might cause some performance issues 😉

Migration Lottery Update

First of all, congratulations to all the lottery winners of the last few weeks! Accounts have been migrated, and they can now choose to play thru the desktop client.

We’re going to take a small break from running the weekly lottery, and perhaps in the future consider running them monthly instead of weekly. Fret not! We still have one more post up that we have yet to draw a winner from!

F-35 Airstrike bug fix

And that’s not all, Commanders! We have received reports that the F-25 Airstrike wasn’t delivering the right amount of KABOOM. Turns out the ace was carrying the Predator Probe’s sensor pod instead of the Mother of All Bombs. This logistics error has been corrected, and the F-35 now has the proper amount of KABOOM.

Moreover, we have issued refunds to anyone who bought the F-35 in the past. If you have not received your refund, please head over to our Discord and send bh-nirgal a direct message with your player ID.

Game improvements

And that’s not all, Commanders! We have made a few game improvements based on player feedback!

  • Regional map battalion icons will now display your custom unit skin, if applicable. They will also be displayed in other areas, such as the “Train” and the “Unlock & Upgrade” menus.
  • Minor change: when applying a skin, the window will now close and show the coloring progress bar.
  • Unit displayed on battalion is now the one with the highest space requirement that at least has 25% HP. So if a battalion of one rifleman and dead Elite TOS-1A will now show the rifleman until the TOS-1A is healed up to at least 25% of its HP.

TR: We Have a Patreon Now!

New this week in Thunder Run:

Optional Monthly Subscriptions Are Here

You read that right, Commanders! We’re officially on Patreon now, and we’re offering new monthly subscription packages that come jam packed with some serious firepower.

Before I get into the fun stuff: Why are we starting a Patreon, you might ask?

Once a bustling global Facebook Game company that employed dozens of developers and artists, Battlehouse has since shrunk to a core original team, who all share an undying passion for making the most fun and immersive real time strategy game that we possibly can.

Over the years, as many popular Facebook and browser gamers made shifts to mobile, console, or traditional PC games, our valued community has kept up alive as one of the top Facebook Games on the Facebook Canvas platform, but support and opportunities for growth are beginning to wane as the popularity of alternate platforms increases.

Last year, we developed a desktop client for our flagship Facebook title: “Thunder Run: War of Clans”, that allowed us to rebrand Thunder Run as “Thunder Run: Global Warfare” and cross-publish to the Microsoft Games Store. We have big plans for getting on additional platforms like Steam and further expanding the World of Gundar for years to come, but we can’t do that without your help! 

Becoming an official Patron for Thunder Run: Global Warfare will help ensure that our small development team can continue making big necessary updates to the game every week. Just recently we launched a new Missile Silo building (with a full “craftable missiles” system), implemented Air Traffic Control towers (with a new tier of “aircraft” units), and we’re just getting started. There’s so much more we want to do!

Developing games is expensive, and we want to keep expanding Thunder Run and World of Gundar until we can all agree that it’s the best free to play multiplayer real time strategy gaming experience the market has to offer. Help us make it so!

Become an official Battlehouse Backer today!

Head on over to our new Patreon page to read more about the explosive subscription packages we have to offer: monthly gold supplies, Discord benefits, Thunder Run merch, the ability to take part in a “Voice of the Commander” focus group, and so much more!
