Buggy Monday on Tuesday: Vivi fixed the weapons & mecha model, and I was able to fix the starship item. Vivi & I are a great team but of course it's thanks to all of you for reporting the issues, and thanks to the Gremlins Archknights neodiabolus and Terosin for confirming/replicating them, along with their work on the forum.
- Harvester Arms now have a Back Arm Graphic
- Ice Harvester Mecha series now recognizes the caps to the defense and accuracy buffs
- The Evil Jim Poster Portal now only works for the Starship Captain (same as the Mortis Map)
Korin tells me that he has questions on his Formspring about whether the heads on the Graupel and Droxal mechas have been fixed. I haven't been able to find reports on the Gremlins forum and I suspect this bug may have been hanging around since last year with the original models. So if you are trying to stun your opponent and you find that your mecha's head is attempting to stun you, please let us know the details at the above link, and meanwhile we'll be looking into what's going on with that.
Mecha and Weapons Specials: Blues designed some nice specials for the new Star Captain and Nova Gem Ice Harvester mecha and the "broken-off" weapons for the non-Star Captains. Vivi describes them:

New Year! As 3010 draws to a close, on behalf of the entire MechQuest team I'd like to thank all of you for your loyal and continued support of the game! Whether you started playing years ago or just discovered MQ today, we never forget that it is you who keeps us going! Thank you so much for playing MechQuest!
Maybe you've already supported us by upgrading - Star Captains get exclusive giftbox weapons that will open on New Year's Day - there is still time to upgrade and get your own free giftbox weapons! Also as a way of thanking you for your support, this year we designed the Frostval Mecha "Ice Harvester" model for Star Captains and Nova Gems. If you are non-Star Captain and/or don't have the Nova Gems for this, we did "break off" the head and arms so that you can get a 'taste' of what this Holiday mecha model has to offer.
AExtras and SuperRewards: You probably know about using AExtras to earn Nova Gems, but did you know that you can get BattleOn Game Points and use them toward Nova Gems or even to upgrade to Star Captain? (Along with opportunities for all of our games, of course.) Log in to the Portal Site to check out ways to earn BattleOn Game Points! Click on the "Get Points" tab after you log in - SuperRewards is a fabulous opportunity with a selection of completely FREE offers. It has its own tab on the Get Points page, so definitely give it a click!
Happy Holidays and stay tuned - we have more happening for the New Year!
