I see everyone is freaking out that we haven't said much so I decided that while I'm still here at the Underground Lab today that I would go ahead and let you know what's going on.
First off, 2 holidays right next to each other. Both holidays appear to be things people want celebrated pretty badly. Unfortunately, coming up with a new mech in a week is flat out impossible with the current schedule everyone has. We're all working very hard on the next several releases already so that their content will be ready. Unfortunately, that leaves us little time for this week so to answer questions,
I will begin with no. There is no April Fools mecha this year. We thought about reviving one of the old ones but I think of those as extreme rares and I would be hesitant to rerelease those. The Easter mecha seem less-rare to me so for mechas this week, you'll be getting a revived Easter mecha. I don't think we've figured out which one yet and if we did, I've forgotten it since I'm trying to get a dozen other things in order.
I will continue by saying that there will still be an April Fools item and maybe some foolery going on. The item seems to be in demand but we'll see when it launches. Only thing we haven't decided is if we should roll the item at midnight tonight or Thursday at normal roll time, followed by the Easter stuff on Friday. So more to come on that.
I'm hoping to make it so the old Easter quests are replayable. I need to talk with Warlic about how to set that up because it seems like the Easter releases were set up in the most chaotic way possible.
That said, there will be a new, single fight Easter quest and it will have 2 rewards. One being the revived mecha, the other being a monster mecha.
And trust us when I say we're all well aware about how disappointed you will be since you've been expecting one all week. It just won't happen, at least not this week. If I were to try and compromise, I would suggest that we schedule an April Fools day mecha on May. And call it the "April Fools Edition Mecha Now in May" mecha. Any of you have thoughts on that? I'm perfectly willing to try and make a solution but thinking of us as realistic human beings, it just won't happen this week but I'm willing to work with you all on coming up with something as exciting.
On a lighter note, we're changing some sound effects soon. Don't be alarmed. I started playing with some audio tools and I figured out how to make them with more bass and they sound nice. However, feedback is always welcome and we'll change them back if you guys don't like them.
That's all I have to say right now, I think. So we apologize for the inconvenience (since I'm sure there is one) but let us know what you think about delaying an April Fools mech to a not-April-1st date.
