Brief Transmission

And now, a message from Practel.

Hiya Starcaptains! 
Miss me? No need to answer - I know you did. I've been working on a bunch of awesome stuff for MechQuest lately, some I can talk about, but most of it I can't. Later on today, Frostval and the decorated Soluna City will be leaving for another year, so you have a few hours to finish up and get whatever you want! 
I have some incredibly exciting (at least I think it is :P) ideas that I'm planning and working with right now for the future of MechQuest, and I'm sure you guys will like it! Some of you may already have an idea of what I want to do going forward - those who do really made me chuckle! 
Overall, this isn't a large Design Notes, but I wanted to wish you guys a Happy New Year, and to all who are going back to school, good luck on the final semester! 
I'm back, and better than ever! ~Practel
(P.S: Did anyone find my easter egg?)

Thanks, Practel.

What's that?

No, I'm sorry. You can't wear Tek's underwear.

Goodnight everybody!

Send J6 On A Mission to Space

G.E.A.R.S. University Students Can Help Send J6 On a Mission!  Yes, by working together we can make a real-life difference in the life of our very own Bounty Hunter! J6 - the creator of MQ's feature film, D.F.A. - has worked as an artist on every game Artix Entertainment has ever made. His dream is to go to space. He has entered the A.A.S.A. Space Competition. Winning this contest would send him to a training camp where he would have the chance to fly into space with an international crew. This is not a joke contest; the last time he tried, he got the most votes, but the number of votes didn't matter. This time it does! With our votes, we can potentially send him to the top spot and to the stars!

GEARS Games Rewards

I promised to give you more info last weekend and... it's Friday already? Busy, busy week! We've got the Level 50 mecha models all set for you at last. A bit behind schedule on the A-Head of Schedule Calendar Promo Item but it's not forgotten & we'll set that up next.  Also in the works is the transition from the current Corrupted House Mechas - we'll be replacing the ones on the shelves with less-expensive versions and buffing the ones that are currently in the shop - so grab one at the current price for the stronger version now, or wait till the 1000-NG models arrive next week.  

Also got some bugs fixed - the barely-accessible Xaria Reward shop button is now clickable, and those of you who contacted me with issues about your House Affiliation should all be set up properly now as well. If you encounter a bug, there is a link on the bottom of the game page to report it. We are always working to bring you a high-quality game and truly appreciate your bug reports!

Keep your eyes on the horizon - and until next time, Battle ON! =Mae

You all went above and beyond and shattered all expectations we had, as rewards we have something for everyone.

The amount of Valor badges needed is based off your level to make it easier for all players to obtain.The snow is starting to thaw.Be sure to pick up all your holiday rares because Frostval will be leaving this Monday and will take with it everything, that means this is your last chance to grab a bacon wrapped Zorbo before it becomes forever rare!I hope you all have an excellent weekend and I’ll see you all next Friday.~Plasma Charge
