Changes to Membership and Battle Gems!

http://herosmash.com/images/cms/HSDN-MemChangeb.jpg

The HS/AQW 'VIP' system has ended. To clarify, the cross promotion between HeroSmash and AQWorlds has ended. Buying an AQW membership no longer gives you anything in HeroSmash.


SmashCoins are still available, so anything that is not for free players, can be bought with SC (SMashCoins). In the future, membership 'may' return as a HeroSmash only membership system (this depends on the player count and interest in the game).

So goods news for our loyal supporters! If you are currently a member (or had a membership), you get 50 more YEARS of membership for free.

On July 7th, all members received a one-time gift of 5,000 SmashCoins for each month of membership they had left (if they had 2 months of membership left, you got 10,000 SC).

Only the membership system has chaged, nothing else. This will not change items at all. Membership buttons will be removed from maps to avoid confusion and will be updating the pop-up menu for 'Redeem' button in HALdroid. New Promo gear coming soon!

PvP has come to Battle Gems! Read about buying gold and PvP HERE!

Freedom Day!

http://herosmash.com/images/cms/HSDN14-FreedomDay.jpg

Hiya SMASHers,

This week, we are preparing for Freedom Friday (Canada Day + USA’s 4th of July), where both countries celebrate who we are and the liberties our freedom gives us.

As a Canadian working for an American company, Freedom Day has a great deal of meaning for me. I truly wish all countries of the world could enjoy the freedom to express themselves, enjoy life, and work together just like Canada and the USA.

But I think Freedom Day should include Mexico, too (let's hear it for North America united!) So, from this point on, I plan to have the art team incorporate some 'Mexican Independence Day' themed items for Freedom Day. 

HeroSmash is a fictional world in which we are all a part of its creation. My vision for HeroSmash is to be an example of a better world where everyone is a Hero (or Villain?!) with goals larger than the world itself.

Freedom itself is a major theme for HeroSmash. Artix Entertainment has promised to keep HeroSmash running for as long as possible. But, this is a difficult task for many reasons.

Due to the majority of games going mobile, AE has been forced to adapt in order to survive, resulting in many changes. Such changes caused AQ3D to be pushed aside for mobile projects like Battle Gems. When time allows, I hope that project comes back to life!

HeroSmash admittedly had a bad start. Combine that with all the team members being moved to the 3D project (then later onto mobile and other projects), it has not boded well for HS. It was decide that I would run HeroSmash. I am proud (and happy!) to be working on HeroSmash, but it is not my only duty at AE. Game promotion is an aspect I'm deeply involved in (wallpapers, web art, and ads), and much of HS still needs fixing before implementing a major storyline push.

Much of HS I have done on my own. The Art Team is made up of talented volunteers wishing to get hands-on experience in the gaming development sector. The team has changed many times since our inception, but I'm still fighting to make HS better.

Lately, the current team has been adapting to life (work, school, and health). But there is good news! All are ready to step up and have already started on new ideas for artwork. 

I want everyone to know HeroSmash is NOT dead . . . it's like an undead zombie clawing its way up from under the ground. One day, we will rise to stand in the moonlight, at which point you'll probably be punching us for trying to eat your brains (but we promise not to hold any grudges over that). 

Unfortunately, it will take time. And patience. 

The only thing that can change is you—our fellow players. Nothing drives progress as much as demand, and to give us the resources we need to speed things up, we need YOUR support. Show us you want to play HeroSmash. Show us that you want it to grow.

And it WILL!

No matter what life throws at you, be a real hero and help the world around you. Heroism isn't just what people see… it's the little things that you do even if you're the only one who will ever know. Not for vanity or profit, but because that what makes true heroes into super heroes.

Battle On!

Changes to Types

Sorry to be silent the past few weeks, folks.

A lot is going on behind the scenes. As you all may know, we made Wonderp Bread my Asst. Project Lead, so he has the power to learn what I know. That came at the same time I finally got access to coders, programmers, and web designers for a week.

So, what's happening behind the scenes?

HS code was ported from AQW and adjusted to suit a game of super powered heroes/villains. HS was going to be different from AQW having more modern and futuristic comic-style weapons. The names of the weapon types were used from the AQW setup. As we moved along, we notice players wanted all kinds of weapons to make each player more unique. Until now, there were SWORD, AXE and GUN types, but this made it hard to place weapons like chainsaws and bows under the old archetypes.

So a week ago, we merged all AXE type to SWORD (well, Derp did the final ones). A Few weeks ago, we had llussion create MELEE and GUN types. Then Capt. Rhubarb 'automatically' transfered the old types to the new ones (saving us a ton of time!)

Being Project Lead can be crazy, but I am crazy about what I do, so it has been around the clock fighting to get things going. I also had to wait until mobile game was done.

Shields: I found to be odd in the WEAPON category as they're meant to protect. So, it is now in the ARMOR section of shops thanks to llussion. Currently, coders/programmers and web page designers are busy updating security and servers.

In the near future, we will be fixing gun attacks and capes. I'm not sure when, but it's on my list of requests. We're also working on character page badge fixes.

There is more stuff going on that I will share in time, but I don't want jinx things.

All this is happening because all of you have shown so much love for HS, and I thank you dearly for that.

Last week of Lucky Day

Hiya SMASHers!

We're wrapping up the Lucky Day event with some final items. Next, we're doing something special for Fools Day! Wonderp Bread is working on monsters and soon will be training as Asst. Project Lead.

That's right, Wonderp Bread will be beefing up his skills and helping to make HS better! This will allow me to focus more on storyline stuff and free me up for more non-HS projects.

March Update

Hiya SMASHers!

Harry the Cupid is gone for another year; did you collect your badge? Now, Dage the Evil is celebrating his birthday with a shop in HeroSmash. Few more items were added this week. But this the last week to get as Lucky Day is coming.

We are hard at work getting the new, revised Smashdome ready. Along with the updated look to Smashdome, and we are adding the MegaDome to it. As a thank you to those that Beta tested monthly PvP and won (the PvP Champions), you are going to be NPCs (Dumoose's Team). PvP will remain, but the monthly poll and champion will be removed, as it has too many issues. PvP tokens will continue on for shop use and to claim a PvP Champion Badge.

We are also currently working on updating game security to make it better and safer for all. We added a pacth recently and next planning another server move for game files to a new a faster one.

Heroes Heart Day

Let go of my Brick-o!

Hero Heart Day is rocketing towards us and Harry will once again open up his shop to all.

Hero Heart Harry 2014

As this event approaches, so, too, does the current Limited Time Shop come to an end. The 'Bricko Movie' items are all RARE, but we will be adding permanent 'Bricko Movie' -inspired cosplay items to the game.


The Ultimate Evil and Good shop items got a face lift, thanks to Polistar! Postmaster and Wonderp Bread have completed the new game promotional package armor set, 'Titanical,' (it's in testing phase - the release date will be set soon as testing is complete)

In the last few weeks, HeroSmash has been moved to new servers and has had other, minor, updates. The character creation screen is also being worked on to fix some issues. We will be releasing this very soon.

Smashmas will be leaving next week. Before Smashmas is gone, we plan to release a new Smashmas badge (the art is ready, just have coding left).

It has been a super cold winter, hope you all are warm and safe!

Happy Birthday Arae

We recently updated the Overlook Info Menu interface to match the style and theme of HeroSmash. Also, the height was shortened so players can see the Exit Screen Arrow. We added a new floating animated shop button for staff birthdays and limit time shops.

We would all like to wish Arae a very happy birthday! She created special itemsfor her birthday shop, hope you all enjoy.

Before Smashmas leaves, we're going to fix a few more things (like one quest that could not be completed due to there not enough gift boxes to find). New Year items will be leaving this week.
