Please be advised: We are taking the Live servers OFFLINE tonight for 12 hours starting at 10 PM Pacific Daylight Time.
During this time you wonâ€™t be able to log in to the website, buy MC, or Play the Live version of the game.
However, in order to help keep you entertained: We are opening up the Public Test Servers so that you will be able to get a sneak peek at not only Tomorrow's patch but also the next.
Please remember that the Public Test Server has no impact on Live stats, in-game purchases made in the Test will not be reflected on your live account.
Here is the sneak peek from tomorrowâ€™s patch:
â€¢ New Hero â€˜Mech
â€¢ New Champion â€˜Mech
â€¢ Multi-mode select (1, 2, or all 3 modes)
â€¢ Turret Health is 100 (was 150)
â€¢ Missiles speed is 160 (Was 175)
And here is content you are testing for the 15th patch, which we would sincerely appreciate your feedback on!
â€¢ This should prevent â€˜Mechs from spawning in front of you and dropping to the ground at the round startup.
â€¢ If you get odd behavior around mechs spawning at the beginning of the match we want to hear about it in the Public test forums.
Server Side Missile impact effects.
â€¢ Now if you see a missile explode on impact on a 'Mech, you can be sure the server saw the same thing. This is the first step in getting Srms and Streaks to be balanced again. Try them out and let us know what you think!
The accounts you are using will reflect your live account as of 10 am PDT, however, to make this all a bit more fun: We have loaded up your Public test accounts with a test-server only boost of:
â€¢ 50,000 MC
â€¢ 50,000,000 C-bills
â€¢ 50,000 GXP
Once again: Any Achievements, C-bills, XP, Purchases and Load outs that you earn, buy, or create on public test are just for testing and DO NOT transfer over to the Live Environment.
Keep in mind Public Test is not considered a final product, and fun levels may be limited by new and unexpected bugs.
You will be able to post from now until 10 PM PDT once we start our data migration you will not be able to post.
We will keep the Public test servers Up until we have live back up.
