We would like to sincerely apologize for the events bug that prevented players from earning ONP. We understand that this caused a lot of our “Weekend Warriors” to lose out on the chance to earn ONP.
Therefore, on the next Weekend Warrior event, Starting September 3rd,2022 the bonus will be doubled. We will post more details about it on our next Patch Notes.
Scarlet Paint FREE for all Elite Units
And that’s not all, Commanders! As mentioned in a previous Patch Notes earlier this month, we discovered that the accidental Elite TOS1 color resulting from the reworking of the paint system was liked by some and thus we released it as a separate color for the Elite TOS-1A.
We’re happy to announce that this color is now available to ALL Elite units for free!

Follow the steps in Scenario 2
Note: Please follow the appropriate steps for your situation. As it was before, migrating accounts will result in loss of access of one of the accounts. Due to the technical challenge of unmerging accounts, we will not be able to do this for anyone in the foreseeable future.
Important: If you have already migrated your account via support or the migration tool, do NOT enable “Auto-Migrate Existing Account”on your client.
We’re celebrating with a few quality-of-life updates based on your player feedback that’s intended to address a few of the issues and suggestions that you’ve brought forth to us. But first, we’d like to address a recent issue that you may have already heard of.
A lot of you have experienced unrequested refunds from Facebook across all of the games. Demanding a refund for gold already spent is a violation of the terms of service, but fortunately we realized this was a Facebook glitch and never issued any disciplinary action to anyone.
This is a Facebook-wide issue affecting dozens of games and tens of thousands of dollars across multiple development companies. Facebook is working on it. In the meantime, if you have a negative gold balance, just sit tight and don’t worry about it.
Elite Units Color Fixes
Not too long ago, we have wrapped up the releases for the Elite Unit skins. Unfortunately, some units weren’t very paintable and thus didn’t display colors all that well. The underlying system for this has been overhauled. The Elite AH-64, Elite M109, Elite Gaz Tigr, and the Elite Nimr, to name a few, now has reworked color variants,
New Scarlet Color Variant for the Elite TOS-1A
The above rework caused an unintended change to the Elite TOS-1A’s default red color. Upon being fixed, we discovered that some actually liked it. Well, you can now get your Elite TOS-1As in bright Scarlet… for free! Just go to your Motor Pool > Paint Vehicles, and TOS it on and enjoy your super-bright rocket artillery!
Desktop Client Improvements
The desktop client now allows you to upload an avatar without having to go to battlehouse.com. This will help players who don’t like having their Facebook avatar skipped when they use the desktop client.
Simply boot up the client and go to Account Info to upload a custom avatar before logging in to play!
Battlehouse.com now allows you to log in with Microsoft. If you use the Windows Store version of the desktop client and would like to access your account info via battlehouse.com, you can now do so.
Don’t see the update you were hoping for in this week’s release? Fear not, as there is still plenty more to come.
Today is a different kind of “Voice of the Commander” day.
Usually, we’d celebrate with a quality-of-life update based on player feedback. It still is player feedback for today, but in a different way.
For the past few months, the gifting system has been popping in and out of existence. Unfortunately, this is due to Facebook breaking something on their side, and is not something we are able to fix on ours.
So we’ve been looking for ways to break free of this reliance on Facebook, and the first step to do that is now here: the “Friends” bar will now show clan members!
A transparent clan logo on a player in your friend bar will indicate that they are a clanmate.
As mentioned before, this is just the beginning. This will be developed further down the road, so stay tuned for more updates!
Welcome to Season 27! 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?
Looking for the Season 26 Tournament winners list? Don’t worry. It will be revealed soon. Stay tuned for another Patch Notes coming later on!
Non-map merge incoming
And that’s not all, Commanders! Please be informed that non-maps 101, 102, and 103 will be merged into a single Non-Map on August 1st, 2022.
Friends Bar Update
Also, due to the recurring issues on the Facebook side of things that breaks the gifting system, we have started looking at other ways to make gifting non-reliant on Facebook. A small update, as a first step, will be released next week. So stay tuned!
As always, Patrons get these features early, so if you want to be Patron and get early access to future releases, head on over to our Patreon!
We have some exciting news, announcements, and more waiting for you on our most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

Tournament ends on July 7th, 2022 at 1700 GMT, at which point winners will be announced, prizes awarded, and leaderboards will be reset for the new season. It’s important to note that you should stay in the same Clan through the end of the tournament and for at least one hour afterward, until at least 1800 GMT to ensure your Clan’s prizes are scored correctly.

The new season will begin immediately after the end of the tournament.
Please be reminded that PvP points can only be accumulated on “Dome” maps.
“Zombie” Battalion Debuff Update Details
And that’s not all, Commander! Last week, we briefly mentioned an update that was intended to address feedback regarding dead or “zombie” battalions. We’d like to clarify a few things, so here are some more details.
The weakened unit debuff previously applied only to attackers, as attackers often have an advantage over defenders due to having a human at the controls. This was causing some unintended effects in the field.
Base defenders and batts immediately next to their own home base do not get the debuff when defending. Batts deployed out in the field now get the debuff.
Keep your batts in fighting shape, Commander, and call them home when they get low on health.
Batt speed will likely soon be adjusted as well to take into account the speed debuff that applies to weakened units.
Ever wanted to migrate your account to our desktop client, but can neither be a Patron nor a winner of our migration lottery a while back?
Well, now you can!
Introducing, our self-service migration system! You can now migrate your account yourself, and access your main account via Facebook (or Kongregate)and via the downloadable client in a few easy steps!
1. Download the client from Microsoft Store or from HERE. 2. Install the client, run, and create a new account, preferably, via Microsoft or Google. 3. Skip the tutorial, go to your player info, and write down your newbie account’s player ID. 4. Open up your main account on Facebook, and simultaneously run both for a bit so your newbie account is recognized as an alt. 5. Go to the Store > Hardware/ONP or Store > Specials, and purchase the “Start Account Migration” item. It will not show up on your store unless you have an alt created from the Thunder Run client.
6. Activate item from Warehouse, and enter yournewbie account’s player ID.
7. Go back to your newbie account on the client, and check the mail for the “Confirm Account Migration” item.
8. Activate the item from Warehouse, and restart the Thunder Run client. You should now see your main account. If you don’t, please wait 1-2 hours and run the client again.
If you want your old Facebook avatar in-game while using the downloadable client, please go here and log in with your client credentials, and change your avatar from there.
IMPORTANT: As you may have noticed from the screenshots, there are at least THREE warnings that you will LOSE the alt account. If you complete the whole process, we take it that you have acknowledged all three warnings and understood what would happen.
And that’s not all, Commanders! We’ve made a few changes based on player feedback submitted forth to us.
For a long time, battalion units that fall under a certain HP percentage suffer debuffs when attacking. Now, these debuffs are applied to defenders as well.
A few more quality-of-life changes are coming, so stay tuned!
Our engineers have made a few tweaks to the Elite AH-1Z, based on player feedback.
The Elite AH-1Z will now automatically switch to the Sidewinder Missiles when facing air units, and automatically switch back to its default weapons afterwards. This is to address feedback that it can get cumbersome to keep pressing “E” in the heat of battle.
You still have the option of pressing “E” to manually switch weapons if you wish to micromanage your units further.
The Sidewinder Missiles also received a range increase. It is still lower than it was when it was manually targeted, as the manual target had to be high to give players enough time to aim against incoming targets.
Elite Kamov Ka-50 Skin-related bugfix
And that’s not all, Commanders! Last week, the Elite Ka-50 got its new paints!
Unfortunately, there was a bit of a mix-up and all the new paint was delivered to the Barracks instead of the Airfield. This meant that the Elite Ka-50 was only paintable from the Barracks.
Not only that, the Barracks staff refused, understandably, to paint any Ka-50’s brought to them; only citing “We dip fatigues in dye. This is not what we signed up for.” This resulted in an error when trying to apply a new coat of paint on an Elite Ka-50 from the Barracks.
We’re happy to inform you that all of that has been resolved, Commander!
