Mech Rank Bonus Changes

Mech Rank Bonus Changes

Greetings, Pilots!

We're happy to announce that Mech Arena is due to be launched globally very soon, and the Dev Team is working hard to streamline the gameplay and work out some final balance quirks. After reviewing player feedback, in-game metrics, and conducting extensive in-game testing, we have decided to change the Rank 6 Mech bonus to bring variety to endgame gameplay and make sure all Mechs have a chance to shine.

Once Update 1.24 goes live, you will no longer receive a second copy of the same Mech upon reaching that Rank; instead, the Mech's Energy Capacity will get a significant boost. Light Mechs will cap out at 16 Energy Capacity, medium Mechs will cap out at 24, and Heavy Mechs will cap out at a staggering 32 Energy Capacity - enough for two Railguns or Stasis Beam 16s! Panthers, Guardians, and other heavy hitters will be able to deliver punishment like never before, and even slinky Shadows will pack quite a punch. This change will apply to every Mech in the game, opening up a lot more creative, flexible, and powerful builds.

That said, it does mean giving up on bringing two copies of the same Mech in your squad. Only having one of every Mech will mean more variety and tactical flexibility in the Arena, and we think it's best for the balance of the game. However, removing the existing second copies from players who already have them cannot happen immediately, which means those players will keep their extra Mechs for a short time. It is a matter we will resolve as soon as possible. But fairness is also one of our main priorities here - so we'll be sending compensation to those who lose their Mechs due to this rebalance. They can expect to hear more shortly.

Keep an eye out for more news, as we've also got awesome and highly rewarding Events prepared to celebrate the upcoming global launch!

Anyone else having control issues with their direction button? I am moving forward and then it goes wonky, happens in battle as well very annoying!

Also why is some pricing in Canadian dollars and some in US dollars?

I spent a lot of cash buying a coins to get the togetthe copy and now you want to take the second copy away. In my eyes that is stealing money from me the compensation better be great ,r I will get a hold of my congressman.

Yes, Pilot. We believe that this change is needed and it will make a huge difference in future. It will definitely bring variety to endgame gameplay. Just wait to see it 😎

Speaking of your suggestion, we'll think about it, thanks.

I completely understand your concern here, Pilot. However, we'll do our best to provide fair compensation. It should be enough to make this change smooth. Besides, don't fear the fact that some opponents will be able to equip two Railguns. You'll be able to do the same 😉

Have you considered reinstalling the game, MECHKILLER? I haven't seen any complaints on this matter. Perhaps, reinstallation will fix it for you. 

Did I get it correct that on your account you see some prices in Canadian dollars whereas others are in US dollars? Or are you talking about different accounts?

I wholeheartedly hope our compensation will make it up for you, Pilot 😉

Team mech arena....u do what u want to....no issues...but....but .....i think u better understand....how much A Coins and Credits requires to upgrade for Rank 6 .level 7....u pls remove second copy ..but return all A coins and credits which we have invested to reach rank 6.level 7.....and compensation of time that we wasted to get mech maxed out....this is not a joke....so pay back all we invested beyond second copy..(from rank 6,level 1 to rank 6..level 7)

Please don't remove 2nd copies please understand our pain. when we use two raliguns the whole team will suffer so i request you to not remove second copy. you can add 8 rank for 32 energy but don't remove second copies

OMG  please   dont  do  this.  I  am  not  sure  who  is  suggesting  you  to  ruin  the  charm  in  this  game  by  removing  second  copy.  I  know  my  friends  who  are  mad  to  play  for  second copy

This  is  really  bad  to  have  a  mech  that  can  have  32  energy.  Do  you  know  two  railgun  shots  can  blow  a  mech  in  a  fraction.

what  is  the  use  if  you  can  not  stand  to  play  with  a  mech  and  wasting  your  time  hiding  and  hiding  .  There  is  no  charm  in  that.

I  really  regret  to  get  second  copies  and  my  friends  are  really  diwn  and  some  even  left  playing  who  used  to  play  for  second  copy.

I  suggest  you  change  your  advisor  who  is  doing  this.

What type of changes are you doing. This is really gonna players to reconsider playing for second copy rewards.

Already the mech energy is very low and you people are allowing more heavy guns.

Looks like you want to distroy the game play by removing second copy that only people are playing for. 

I think is this is the end from my side for this game and I was playing for killshot second copy.

Bye guys good luck to mech arena. Going to stop or wasting my time on it.

God bless mech arena.
