New this week in Thunder Run:

Voice of the Commander Updates

Greetings, Commanders!

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.

Unrequested Refunds

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 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! 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, 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.
