Android Nutaku Version Launched!

Viktor is ready to play.

It’s a Christmas miracle everyone! After many trials and tribulations, we’ve finally managed to get out a Nutaku-synced Android build. You can download it now from their mobile site when you visit the Nutaku.net homepage on your phone (NSFW link). This new app version will behave just like the existing builds on web and Android. Nutaku players can now play on the go, keeping their data synced up between web browser and phone.

Christmas Event Extension

Because of the influx of new users, we are going to add an additional 7 days to the event so new Android players can get a chance at some rewards. For existing players… Merry Christmas, and enjoy the freebie extension. This should help you roll a few extra Soviet packs, or ease up on the grind if you need to take some time off for the holidays.

New Event End Date: January 11th

December 20th – Small Maintenance Update

Hi Generals,

I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas event so far! The patch this week is very light (as far as the Nutaku web version goes). It’s mostly consisted of back-end improvements and optimizations, as well as a few unit balances. In short, most of the things we changed aren’t visible on surface level.

Android is going to have a delayed patch due to some other issues that have sprouted up. But when it does go up (a few hours later probably), it will have all of these changes too.


Balances:

  • Comet, Astrid
    -Evasion buffed from 12% -> 17%
    -HP scaling buffed from 63 -> 65 per level
  • T30, Nira
    Attack Speed buffed 0.2 -> 0.25
    Base HP buffed from 465 -> 500
  • Super Pershing, Sarah
    Armor Scaling buffed from 1.25 -> 1.35 per level

Bug Fixes:

-Performance optimizations for Android players
-Fixed emulator and low end Android device’s streamed image loading. (Announcements and story scene backgrounds would sometimes get blurry)
-Fixed the missed descriptions for abilities that buff armor. The word “armor” is replaced with “damage reduction.”
-Fixed error in Leopard 1a1’s welcome line
-Fixed soft lock if player tried to spin wheel without having enough Cores.
-Other minor visual bugs

December 13th Patch – Christmas Event!

Hi Generals,

The time of giving is finally here! Christmas in Factoria is well under way. If you live in a place that snows, then stay warm and cozy by a fireplace! You can be sure that the tanks will be doing that at base. 

The new event is similar in nature to the Halloween event! There’s multiple paths that you can fight to earn Candy Canes and Ornaments. Of course, normal battles, Invasions, and Portal of Chaos will also provide Jingle Bells, the main resource. Use these three resources to help save Christmas. Santa needs your help! The units we have as Christmas exclusives are:

Katyusha, Katyusha 5-star, Artillery (Wholesome Story, no R-18 content)
Polina, ASU-57 5-star, Tank Destroyer (NO RELATIONSHIP STORY, SORRY SMOL)
Eliza, PT-76 5-star, Light Tank
Ulyana, Object 279 5-star, Heavy
Irina, KV-8 4-star, Heavy (flamethrower)

Last year I made a cute little video to show off Polina and her cool air drop ability. It’s outdated now, but you can view it at this link. Katyusha has the Barrage ability, which is the same as Panzerwerfer. Eliza has Iron Curtain 5 (defence buff). Ulyana has the almighty Last Stand ability, same as the E-100, which reflects her powerful invincibility attributes. She’s a bit weaker and costs less at 6 gears. Irina has the Defend 4 ability, along with a sizzling hot flame thrower to roast multiple enemies at once.

We put a bit more work into dialogue scenes this time. There is the standard event intro scene which will throw you into the fictional world of Saving Private Santa (yes, this is a movie reference). You are called upon to rescue the well-known magical figure from the relentless Corruption. Return Santa’s supplies so he can make his trip around Factoria and deliver presents. There’s a small cutscene when you enter the event map for the first time, and also a bonus scene to be revealed after December 24th, when you hit a cumulative 200,000 milestone points!

Photoshop Propaganda Contest

Thanks to everyone who participated in our photoshop competition! We got tons of submissions from all of our social media channels. Over the next week, we will compile them all and try to put them in a nice convenient location for people to view. Then, we’ll announce winners! There was plenty of great posters, artwork, and memes. Because of the quantity of submissions, we’ll have some bonus categories for honorable mentions in addition to the top 3 winners. Please be patient as the judging commences!

Have a very happy holiday everyone!

December 6th Patch – Premium Recruit & Lieutenant Buff!

Hi Generals,

This week we have been working on getting the Christmas event together. It’s going to be a big event that combines the feedback we’ve gotten from our last two events. Look forward to it!

In the meantime, we improved the Store to include some more pricing options for Recruiting. Players now have the option to do Premium Recruit with a higher drop rate out of a 4-star and up pool. There’s even a 5-star guarantee if you purchase the 10+1 pack! This should alleviate some issues where players have purchased many units without getting lucky. In addition to that, for all users we now have a daily free recruit that will give a free 3-4 star unit! You can redeem it daily in the shop, so make sure to login every day to pick up the freebie!

IS-7 and Stridsvagn are back in the Recruitment drop table!

With the onset of December and holiday spirit, we are bringing back the two limited release tanks from months back! IS-7 and Stridsvagn will be available to Recruit from here on out! If you missed your chance to get them last time, then you’ll have plenty of chances now!

Lieutenant HP scaling buffed +50%!

Because they were weak and noticeably more fragile than they should be at late game levels. This should add a bit more durability to your lieutenants so they don’t pop like a balloon. Of course, if your enemy is a Sturmtiger, you will still feel like a balloon, but slightly less. There are other issues like ability upgrading on lieutenants, and maybe swapping/skins. But we don’t have a proper system to do the fancy lieutenant stuff yet. That will take more time to properly deploy. Thanks for being patient!


Patch Notes

New Features:

– New Cash Shop look! Premium recruit tier is now available for purchase.
– Free daily recruit – login and check the shop to redeem it every day!

Balances:

– Player lieutenant HP scaling boosted by 50%

QoL Changes:

– Adjusted Inventory stat text formatting to standardize with Tank Details emblem view


CHRISTMAS EVENT IS COMING NEXT WEEK! Santa Claus is coming to town (aka many very cute santa tanks).

Nov. 29th Patch – Inventory System

Hi Generals,

The bountiful feasts have ended, and the turkey shoot is coming to a close. Many of you Generals have earned the respect and admiration of Tessa the T95. You’ve fought admirably and warded off the evil corrupted fowl spawn. Congratulations! For those of you in America, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast as we did.

If you haven’t seen yet, we have a free download of the T95 splash art available here:

Stories for Scarlett and Mila!

SCARLETT IS FINALLY HERE! Give her your candies to join her on the magnificent “Steel Chef” competition as she fights to win your affection. Months ago she won a fan poll that asked for her story to be made. So we did it (though it did take awhile). In addition to that, the artist of Mila wanted to do her skin and H scene, so she’s good to go too. Both Mila and Scarlett have food themed skins, making them optimal waifu candidates.

This is a very good patch for 4-star units! Both have H content if you are playing on Nutaku.net.

New Quality of Life Features!

We worked on a couple nice improvements that we think will make the game more convenient for you all! One of them is to view the awesome skins that you’ve unlocked for your army. Now you will find on the main menu there are two small arrows at the bottom corners. Tapping those will cycle the portrait between each unit in your Army. This way, you can say hi to each of your girls on the main menu screen!

Another big improvement is an inventory page. On the side bar menu, you can access “Inventory” that will let you view all of your emblems, filter them, upgrade them, and recycle them. You can finally see an emblem’s stats before recycling! There’s also an “Other” tab that will show some specialty resources. This will be a home for items that we add in the future.

Heavy Tank Sale

This week we’re having a heavy tank sale! 5-star heavies have a dedicated 2% category in the shop. This is your chance to pick up some more heavy tankers for your squad.


Patch Notes

New Features:

– Inventory Page added to manage emblems easier.
– Added left and right arrows on the main menu to cycle through your army units.
– New stories for Scarlett (Churchill Crocodile) and Mila (M8 Scott)

Bug Fixes:

– Visual bug where experience bars exceeded intended value, or at level 50 they would keep looping upwards. (Let us know if this still happens)
– Fix for white box on main menu when secretary has multiple messages queued.


For the next couple weeks we’re gonna be working on putting together the Christmas event as well as some other big updates. Stay tuned for a ton of new characters later this month!
