I have to say I didn’t plan on posting today. It is common practice in other games, after a big change, to give advanced players time to adjust and cope with the changes by themselves, at first. Usually, it takes a full day or two until developers post an official comment. This is normally after the players start to warm-up to the changes better and the understandable “everything is doomed!” message starts to change to clear specific feedback.
However, I’m making this post for two reasons.
First, I want you to know Sarah and I are reading what your concerns are and listening to your feedback. Actually, many of the Tacticsoft team are silently checking the different places where our players are discussing the new update. This means the forum, youtube, facebook, the different chat rooms in the game and a few other places.
Second, for the players who played in the beta or/and read what were wrote in advance should be familiar with the changes. We were pretty honest about what the update included and many of the people here actually experienced it in the beta. You gave us feedback and in many cases we changed things based on this feedback. I completely believe the core changes are good - essential, even - for Super Mech. I think that after you’ll start to explore the game a little more, you’ll realize it as well.
Change is always hard, especially in a game you previously mastered and had all figured out. It will take time to adjust. But this is also an opportunity. You may not notice it now but you are in a serious advantage point. The top of the mountain indeed got higher but you’re still higher than most players still making their way up. This is where you have a choice. You can stand in the same place you’re now, fight with whoever comes up, win some but see other move up past you and decide the top is too high and complicated.
Or you can step up. You can explore the new system and you can learn. You were at the top before and you know how to get there better than the new players who are just starting out. Hell, you can even mentor some of them. Make a clan. Make a YouTube channel and teach. And now you also have a new peak to conquer. It’ll take time but you guys are currently in a great advantage point to do it. It’s up to you if you want to use it or lose it.
