Nov. 1st Update – O-I and Ho-Ri II Japanese Tanks!

BOO!

That’s the final spook of the year. Thank you to everyone for participating so attentively to our big Halloween event. It was the first of its kind, and much more exciting than our old events. Plenty of Satans and Panzerwerfers were rescued this Halloween, so good work to you all. We will plan on making Thanksgiving our next event, so get ready for that in a couple weeks. There are some pretty big developments happening in the next couple weeks, and some hot new character releases.

New Japanese Tanks: O-I and Ho-Ri II

It’s about time we got some new Japanese tanks on the field (first of 5-star tier). The O-I has been in pre-production for over a year, but we never put her out. Now she has some snazzy new art, and full relationship story so players can get the entire package. Same goes for the Ho-Ri II! In fact, until our next event begins, you can even get the Ho-Ri II in invasion drops, which are still paced at the 12 hour refresh rate. For this week, Japanese 4-5 star tanks are boosted at 4% in Recruiting! That will be the only place you can land the O-I. Best of luck!

Portal of Chaos is Closing for a bit!

After this week’s cycle of Portal of Chaos, we will be shutting down the Portal for a few days while making some changes. Primarily, adjustments will be made to ease the amount of battles players need to play each week. Don’t fret! It won’t be gone for long.


Patch Notes

New Features:

O-I, 5* Japanese super heavy tank
Ho-Ri II, 5* Japanese tank destroyer
– Invasions have a chance to drop Ho-Ri II right now!
– Premium Pack bundles for new users and certain user brackets
– Code redemption feature in settings menu for future event codes

Balances:

There is a pretty annoying bug we are aware of that applies to cone-targeted Tank Destroyers right now. If they reach the enemy lieutenant and are out of range, they will be unable to fire. Hopefully we can get that one patched out by next week. Sorry for the trouble thus far! But we are certainly looking into it.

Oct. 25th Patch – Last week of Halloween

Hello Generals,

In the final week of the Haunted Isles event, the enemy formations are changing up. After 2 weeks of relentless fighting from all of your Generals, it seems the Corrupt forces have gotten weaker! You should now have an easier time on tiles 3 and 4. Pumpkin turrets are weaker, units are fewer, and the pool of enemy units has weakened a bit. Good work, Generals! But in retaliation, the enemy invasions have increased significantly as well. Seems like they are fighting back as well (Invasions reset every 12 hours for this week!). This will be a good opportunity to fight them off and take their pumpkins though!

 

The First Egyptian Tank! T-100, Nailah

Nailah, a new 5-star tank destroyer joins the fray this patch. She’s a powerful ranged support unit, capable of blinding opponents and reducing their range. In addition to that, her active skill is Disable Lv.5. She will be an excellent addition if you are looking for ranged supporters!

FV3805 – Mary’s Relationship Story is out!

Mary’s story is out, so you can feed her candies to learn more about this British beauty. Learn about her ties to British Royalty (and Evie?!?) – she may have royal blood, but she is ready to get down and dirty on the battlefield and fight on the front lines with everyone else. If you have her in your army, you won’t want to skip her!

 

SquChan Sale!

We are selling her 4-5 star tanks this week in a special 5% boosted category sale! Love her artwork? Go drop her a follow or tweet at her. Her social media links are here: Twitter | Facebook


Patch Notes

New Features:

T-100 Egyptian tank destroyer is out! Get her now through the Mummy’s Curse Bundle in the event exchange
FV3805, Mary has her relationship story! Learn about her connection to Evie, and welcome her properly to Factoria.

Balances:

-Enemies on the Haunted Isle have weakened! The third and fourth event tiles have easier pumpkin enemies, and much easier enemy pools.
-Final week of invasions occur every 12 hours again! The enemy is on the counter attack! Go get those pumpkins back!

Bug Fixes:

-Fixed bug that caused units with range buff to remain at long range, despite losing the buff.
-Fixed issue where Elite promotion button could be pressed twice, consuming extra BP


This is the last week of the event, so get going! Time is running out to rescue Minnie and Edna!

Oct. 18th Patch – Tiny maintenance and bug fixes

Hello Generals,

Today our patch was really small, as there’s nothing new this week. I’m sure everyone is busy grinding the event, so we got things back up ASAP. There are 2 more weeks left to gather the Satan and Panzerwerfer! Many people are already there, and quite a few are super close. Good job on rescuing those scouts, General!

We are rotating our sale out to cover 4-5 star light tanks this week! They will have their own 5% drop rate category.

Next week, we do have a NEW character coming out . . . and yes, she does have a Halloween costume coming with her too!


Patch Notes

Bug Fixes:

Emblem max cap is now properly enforced (preventing you from battle). If you need to recycle lots of emblems, do like 50 at a time to prevent game from freezing! (Removed this change due to lack of proper Emblem recycling UI.)
-Fixed bug that would make Auto Battle button hard to press
-Fixed small visual and corner case bugs

Oct. 11th Patch – Haunted Isles Event!

Hello Generals,

It’s finally here everyone! Armor Blitz’s first event since the big overhaul (and Nutaku launch) is finally here: The Haunted Isles. As the Halloween festivities approach, so to do the Corruption. You will quickly learn that the elevated rate of enemy invaders is due to a mysterious island hidden from sight. Headquarters has been hunting it down for awhile, but only now have you learned of its actual location. It turns out that a couple of scouts have gone missing on the Haunted Isles – it’s up to you to rescue them!

You will need to gather Pumpkins, Bat Wings, and Ghosts in order to locate the whereabouts of the missing M3 Satan (Edna) and Panzerwerfer (Minnie). The pumpkins will curry favor with the black cat of the Haunted Isles. He can also use trace elements of bat wings and ghosts in order to locate the tanks . . . and other goodies as well! Present offerings to the cauldrons, and earn rewards. If you do manage to rescue the tanks, they begin at lvl 15, letting them catch up faster.

Both Edna and Minnie have relationship stories to earn. After all, it’s Halloween, so load them up with candy. If you are a Nutaku.net player, be aware that Minnie the Panzerwerfer has a 100% wholesome story. No H content, but plenty of spooks. Satan on the other hand, is a bit more devilish!

So … alluring.

In addition to the Sacrifice rewards, you can Exchange your event resources for special packages. Certain packages have limited quantities, so be sure to get them all! You can even buy bags of candy to restock your dwindling sugar supply.

  • PumpkinsFound by beating standard map battles and invasions
  • Bat WingsFound in the Devil’s Path on the Haunted Isle
  • Ghosts – Found throughout the Haunted Path on the Haunted Isle

Every day your Haunted Isle progress will reset, allowing you to defeat beaten tiles again and earn more Bat Wings and Ghosts. If you are really impatient, you can pay an instant reset cost to speed up time! The cost to do this increases each time, but also resets each day.

Platoons!!!

One of the most requested features since the dawn of time has been the ability to set up different decks. It’s finally arrived – you can get new platoon spots in the Army Screen (same place you buy reserve expansions). Set up back up platoons to quickly swap into when your primary platoon is injured. The cost is a flat fee of 300 Cores, and you can get up to 5 platoons.

UK Sale

Finally, we are keeping up the rotating sales. This week, we are putting up the opportunity to get 4-5 star UK tanks in the store. We ran a similar sale awhile back for British tanks, and now it’s returned! This sale will end next Wednesday.


Patch Notes

New Features:

Halloween Event! The Haunted Isles is here. Rescue the M3 Satan and Panzerwerfer, and get other exclusive goodies before the event ends.
Panzerwerfer, Minnie (5-star artillery added)
Expanded Army Platoons: Purchase additional platoon slots on the Army Screen. This will allow you to swap quickly between decks. Set up a unique deck for separate occasions!
UK Sale – 3% Drop category for 4-5 Star tanks from the UK

Bug Fixes:

-M3 Satan’s Haste ability no longer changes her projectile to single-target.
-SU-76M, Vanissa Crit Multiplier fixed .5% -> 50%

-Small visual fixes and improvements . . . like the water shader


Trick or treat! There’s a couple more weeks to go before the holiday begins. On a side note, the dev team will be at Youmacon in Detroit, as we are every year. If you are in the area, then come by and say hi to us in the video game room. Message us on Twitter or Facebook to chat!

Oct. 4th Patch – German Invasions!

Hello Generals,

This week, we have a few changes to the Invasions and the introduction of the first 3-star story: Hetzer! This week, you will have the chance to rescue 3 and 4-star tanks like Hetzer from the evil clutches of the invading Corruption. Invasions refresh every 12 hours for this week only. Each invasion tile you beat will drop a mid-tier German unit, so get out there and start rescuing!  Because of the focus on German units, our sale will also focus on boosting that region’s recruit rate. They have a dedicated 3% drop category for 5-stars, so if you’ve been wanting to set a Maus trap… this is your chance!

Hetzer’s story was something that was requested since the launch of our relationship system. She’s the cute iconic mascot that everyone loves, even if she’s only a 3-star. Well it’s finally been done! Feed her 150 candies, and you can experience the adventures of Ilona and the Small Brigade! It’s the longest story so far (and 100% WHOLESOME). So get your reading glasses on!

Look at that little bundle of sunshine.
