    All servers will be taken offline Wednesday, March 19, 2014, at 6:00AM PDT, for Game Update 35. Downtime is expected to last about 4 hours. Players may notice the following changes:

    Update: All servers are now online!

    New Style Vendor!

    With Game Update 35 we are implementing a new vendor in the HQs that will offer some of our harder to find styles for sale! This will give players a chance to complete feats without depending on randomness of the drops. These vendors are called Vending Unit 22 and can be found in the Watchtower in the Aquacultural Area, and in the Hall of Doom in The Pit.

    Currently each of these items cost 70 Marks of Reality to purchase, with the exception of the previous War of the Light Part I appearance items which vary in price.

    Load Screen Tool Tips!

    New helpful tips have been added to our loading screens! Players will see tips when they are zoning and will be either general in nature or relevant to where the player is headed, like a Base or an Arena match. If a tip goes too fast, players can look to their chat window display to review what they may have missed!

    Safehouse Teleporters!

    Now players will be able to travel from safehouse to safehouse directly from safehouse teleporters! After players complete their Headquarters’ tour mission, they will also be able to choose to travel to any HQ wing from any safehouse.

    New Vendor Soders!

    Three new vendor purchased soders have been created as steps up from the Soder Cola Extreme for Tiers 4 and higher content! These soders will now be rewarded/dropped from appropriate level content and will have combat rating requirements to purchase/use.

    League Management Screen Update

    We’ve slightly re-arranged the League Management screen for ease of use. This also will allow for more room to incorporate new features!

    New to the Marketplace – Booster Bundle!

    Available for a limited time! Get your hands on this bundle of goodies sponsored by none other than Booster Gold! The pack includes: 500 Replay Badges, 6 R&D Scanners, 8 Radar Enhancers, 5 Proto Repair Bots, 5 Vault Tickets, and an Aura Reward Box. The Aura Reward box includes one Aura which may be any of the existing common Auras, one of two new colored Plasmic Auras, or the new, rare Nimbus Aura. The Plasmic variants and Nimbus Auras are all exclusive to this bundle!

    Can you give us any information on how much the Booster bundle costs? Was taking my break when the last one hit.

    EDIT: Nevermind, question has been answered.
  5. Pingvinozavr Well-Known Member

    Does this mean that there will be even more additional damage with full supercharge or is it just "makes staff think" that you've got full supercharge all the time?

    This has me curious.

    Sorry if I've missed it, but for what time frame will the Booster Bundles be being sold? From when (assuming tomorrow w/GU 35) until when?

    I wish they would just put the auras in the marketplace place for sale or make it 100% chance to get one of the new ones.

    Guessing the aura in the photo is the Nimbus aura?

    Also what does it mean by two colored Plasmic auras? Meaning the normal white one plus another color or two different colors entirely?

    Developer Team,

    I have to disagree with the way you are introducing these new auras into the game. I, among many others, will not purchase a "grab bag" with the hopes of getting a shiny new toy. I would think this new product would be better served as a consumable market place item that a player can choose which style to purchase, much like the weapon styles, except that it is not account bound, but rather, character bound.
