Package Supremo gets a MEGA UPDATE

The Package Supremo set was a huge success and you all look great in your SkyFrost set. But the time has come to update the package with a new set. And this set defines the word HEAVY METAL. Dage the Evil, of AQW fame, created another amazing set. This set included multiple stages of transformation to fully customize your character to the extreme. So if you have not yet purchaced the SkyFrost set, get it before it's gone for good.

Once you purchase the 6000 SC pack, the items will get immediately get put in your bank (you might want to refresh first), and get delivered to all your characters. You only get ONE set of the items. If you purchase the package again you will receive a special bundle of 15 PvP Tokens. Remember – you will only get ONE set per character. If you delete or sell the items, you will not get them again, unless you purchase the package again.

Let the Battle Polls Commence

Ok power people, now is the time to make your voice hear. Make it heard by beating up others that is. HA! The battle Polls have officially started! What is the Battle Polls? Well quite simply, it's your standard poll. Dogs vs Cat, Flannel vs Silk, Cereal vs Toast, Ponies vs Ponies. That kind of thing.

            But anyone can just click to vote. We here at HeroSmash do things a bit differently. We make you kick butt to vote. That's right, PvP battles will now drop War Tokens that you can use to cast your vote. You decide the outcome, by simply doing what you all do best. CRUSHING YOUR OPPONANTS! Hahahahahahaha!

            Some people may want a little "reward" for their voting. Well we've got that covered. Not only are you fighting for the "side" you want, but there is also an item that goes along with that side. The winning side gets that item made and put in a Battle Poll shop. The losing side will go in the vaults. Possibly never to be seen again... That is unless we use it for another poll :P.

            What's the fist poll? Well this one is a good one. It's an age old question that has made enemies of friends, and brought nations to their knees. The first Battle Poll is.... SCI-FI vs FANTASY. Thyton has sketched up two amazing swords for you to battle for. One being forged with magic and dragon breath, the other is a fine tuned killing machine created from nano particles and devious robots. Which will be the victor? It is entirely up to you.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... Have at thee!


 

Step Up and Say Hello – Randor the Red

A certain (not so) secret project has been eating my time lately. I have asked a long time HeroSmash artist to step up and help me out with some things in HeroSmash. Randor the Red will be helping me out. He accepted the challenge and has been hard at work learning to do some of the stuff I do on a daily basis on HeroSmash. One of the main things that he will help me out on is the Design Notes. I enjoy writing them, but unfortunately have had my hands more than full lately. Randor will be helping out, letting you know some of the new items, and ideas that are going on. So expect to see some red DN posts mixed in with the yellow ones.

Randor has been doing really good, and has really stepped up to the new challenges. Let’s hear it for Randor!!!

F13 Item Sneak Peek, and more Battle Polls info

Hey power people. I know, I can't just start off with a header like that, and not deliver, so I'll just jump to the good stuff. 

Pretty sick, huh? If things go the way i have labeled them, expect lots of rares! However - I tend to over-rare, and then things get medium well, and then you have a steak sandwich. So we'll see how things go.

There has been a lot of questions as to Battle Polls. Here is some more info on those. With all these wars between good and evil we have it lead me to realize one thing. EVIL WILL ALWAYS WIN. It's not a bad thing. And it certainly doesn't mean that the good guys don't try. They put up a crazy fight. But Super Death and I have noticed that when we oversee all these wars the villains always end up on top. So it got me thinking... How can we still pit player against player in epic wars that are still fun, and always find a way to make it fun, while giving everyone a chance? Zoinks! Thats a big question. Well I came up with one good idea. Battle Polls. Take any two things. Dogs vs Cats, Action vs Comedy, Sprinkles vs Chocolate Chipe, or maybe even the epic choice - Pirates vs Ninja. Which is the best? That's where you come in. You decide who wins by turning in PvP war tokens. The choice is yours when the lines are drawn. Win a winner emerges, an item will appear in the Battle Poll shop that is inspired by what you were fighting for. Now we can always have epic wars, and the outsome will always be unkoown! Man this is going to be fun. Expect the first Battle Poll in the next couple of weeks or so (sporatic release schedule, remember). If you have any ideasfor what the first Battle Poll should be let me know on Twitter with a #BattlePolls tag on it!

A familiar face is one the horizon - A new idea is brewing

Hey Power People,

In the distance I can hear the familiar sound of the calliope, and creepy clown laughter. That's right, Friday the 13th is on the horizon, and that means the return of Zazul's Cirque du Muerte! Time to geat your freak on!

A New Idea???

Two words for you. Battle Polls. I can't say much, cause it's kinda hush hush right now. But hey, when I have I ever done what I was supposed to?

Merry Smashmas to all - And to all a good fight!

Mery Smashmas Everyone! Around this time I like to pop some popcorn, sit around the artificial palm tree, lit with artificial candles, and beat box to Smashmas tunes. It’s while I’m eating popcorn, and beat boxing that I ponder on family, and friends.  I consider all of the players my friends, and this year we went all out to make your Smashmas special.

ITS SNOW FAIR

Hermie and Doodie are back, and Doodie is up to no good again. This time she accidentally created a mass of mutated radioactive snow monsters.

There are so many that this means WAR. Battle and battle the onslaught of snow monsters and turn in the dropped snowballs to fill up a war meter.  When the meter is full – a special shop will open up!

**UPDATE** It’s amazing what the absence of a zero can do. There was a bug with the war meter. It’s fixed now, and everyone is POWERING through this war.

PvP GETS FROSTY

For Smashmas I made new maps for you to PvP in. They are winter wonderlands for you to beat your opponents faces in. These special maps will be around for as long as Smashmas is. Enjoy them!

SPREAD CHEER WITH A SWORD

While re-dated items from last year’s Smashmas have returned, even MORE items have shown up.  Everyone pitched in to make some really amazing items this year.

 

Merry Smashmas everyone!

Got bugs? Call 1800-Llussion!

PvP released last week and you players ate it up. And our engine said WHAAAAAATTTT?  We had made so many big changes since members had played on it, that when EVERONE jumped on it we found a ton of bugs. On Monday Llussion jumped in head first and started squashing bugs, and working on fixing lag.

LAG,  IT TASTES LIKE IT SOUNDS - The first big monster we tackled was the lag. We almost pulled out hair out when we saw the lag. There was sooo much lag! Llussion really scoured over the game and found some key areas to help ease the lag issues PvP created. When he explains what he did I kinda glaze over and imagine something different. It had to do with dinosaurs fighting space rhinos. But I am rambling. Let’s just say he fixed a couple of key things that should really help lessen the lag issues.

CANNED CHAT CAN OUTLAST A NUCLEAR BLAST – It’s the little things that you miss, but when you add them make everyone smile. For those that play in the canned chat server (Jemini) we have added PvP centric canned chat options. They should really help everyone communicate when it comes to PvP. If you can think of any we missed, let us know.

SHINEY - Medals are now arranged properly, and properly leveled. That is all.

YOUR HEAD IS STILL SHOWING – Not any more. In your player avatar you would sometimes see your head peeking behind head morphs. That’s been fixed.

STUN RHYMES WITH PUN – When you are stunned and try to use your super abilities, you will no longer start that cool down timer. It will just say that you are stunned, and can’t use that power yet.

STAT_TASTIC! - Stats now showing in all battles. Before, we were not showing ALL the stats, when they were not important to your score. Now, just for funzies we are showing everything. People like seeing everything.

Whats next on the snowy horizon?

Hermie and Doodie are getting ready for Smashmas next week. Something has gone wrong, and radioactive mutated snowmen are on the loose. This is going to be one messy Smashmas!

PvP is Live for all players

Hey Power People! It’s time to smash some heads, big time. PvP has officially come to HeroSmash. All players can now head into the Smashdome and battle their friends, and destroy their enemies.

PvP Games Option

We have made 4 distinct PvP game styles that will require you to use different tactics, and strategies.

1v1 – This is the classic duel. It’s you vs your opponent. You can either enter a 1v1 queue and battle a random player, or you can select an opponent, and then use the drop down menu to Duel that person directly. 1v1 is a fun, fast paced battle. What strategy will you use to dominate?

3v3 – This action packed game pits two teams of three. Teamwork is key in this battle. Help your teammates, while destroying the other team. The first team to 1000 points is the winner.

Battle Royal – This is a no hold barred action extravaganza. 6 players enter, and only one will leave victorious. Queue up and prepare for all out war. First player to 1000 wins this crazy all out tournament.

Power Defense – This is a unique game that pits two teams together in a giant ever changing map. There are three power nodes on the map, one will randomly open up. All players must find which one is open, and stand on it. Once they are on it, they will start absorbing the power from the node. The other team will want to get all the power too, so you will have to defend it like crazy to make sure your team gets all the power. Eventually the node will close and another node will open up, somewhere on the map. Run, Defend, Repeat. Once your team has absorbed enough the other team will lose.

Rise To The Top

You battle and battle and battle. Your score rises, higher and higher. Are you the best of the best? See the PvP Score Board to find out. Simpley click your avatar on the top of the screen and select PvP Score from the drop down menu.

You can see what your score is daily, for the month, and your all time score. You can also see if you have made it into the top 10 daily, monthly, and all time scorers.

Achievement Unlocked

Another new feature added is the Achievement Medals. As you play PvP you will earn medal as you complete achievements. The more you complete the achievement the more you medal levels up. You can access the medal list from the HALdroid.

 

There you can see the list, and what you need to do to obtain the one you need. Will you be able to get them all?

That’s it for my update on PvP – It’s a lot of stuff. Wow – All this in a month! Big props to the ENTIRE HeroSmash team. They continuously make HeroSmash better and better. Most importantly is Llussion. He has made PvP his life this past month, and he's not done yet. We have more stuff to add, and a lot more bgs to squash.

What’s next on the horizon? I hear the jingle bells of Smashmas in the distance. What will Hermie and Doodie have in store for us this year?

Countdown to PvP Has Begun

Hey Power People - Who’s ready for PvP in HeroSmash? I know I sure am! Let me give you the run down, on what we are working on this week. Let’s see, on my list for this week are leader boards, powers, achievements, rewards, new maps, pnpc, PvP Founder badge, new game option, and new smash coin package featuring a guest artist.

HOW DO YOU RANK?

We are setting up leader boards for HeroSmash PvP as I type. The leader boards will keep track of your current PvP score, and also list the top 10 PvP players. You can sort the list by Daily, Monthly, and All Time. Do you have what it takes to be part of the elite? Battle your way to glory.

MEDAL ME THIS…

Another thing we are adding to PvP is Medal Achievements. We will track your game play and award you medals or trophies based on if you reach the achievement requirements. The Medal List will be found in your HALdroid as a new app. You can see what you have completed, and what is left to achieve. The medals and trophies can be upgraded as well. How cool is that?

WHAT A REWARDING EXPERIENCE

When playing HeroSmash PvP you will receive tokens. Those tokens can then, in turn be traded in to gain xp, fame, items, or even powers. Did I just say you could buy xp? You bet I did. Wow, why am I doing that? Beats me. This game just got interesting.

GOT A POCKET FULL OF POWER

This week we are doing a big balance overhaul on the current powers. Some that were too overpowered are getting adjusted, as well as those that are underpowered. Dumoose is working on those and will be posting a design note about that later today. As well as balancing the current powers we will be making 10-20 new powers. Some of these new powers will incorporate various elemental abilities into heals, allowing you to fine tune you powers to better suit you. There will also include some enhanced attacks, with new elemental animation. WOO HOO! I love animating effects!

NEW GAME – POWER DEFENSE

To top it all off, we are adding a NEW game to the PvP line up, Power Defense. This giant map has three power portals somewhere on it.

When a portal opens up your team will have to run around and find which one is open, and stand on it to absorb its power. Once you have drained its power it will turn off, and another one will open up somewhere on the map. Run, and repeat. The other team is doing the same thing, so you must beat them up, and defeat them to get them off the portal. The first team to 1000 uses all that power to summon a wicked attack on the other team, and wins the game. This is a new and unique game that requires players to remember where the portals are, and work as a team to win.

PVP FOUNDERS

Those that have helped us test HeroSmash PvP we thank you so much. I have made the PvP Founder Badge just for you all.

Remember those that want this badge must be a member and played HeroSmash PvP. If you were a member and your membership ran out before this Friday, but you were able to play PvP, then you are still eligible for the badge.

PvP STORE PNPC

The Smashdome will have its own PvP shop. And this shop needs a shop owner. We decided to make this shop owner a guest PNPC (Player NPC) that would be there, until, well, until we get around to changing it. As a special thanks to our members the first guest shop owner will be chosen from those who our PvP Founder list. Who will it be?

SPECIAL PACKAGE AVAILABLE

We will be adding a special SmashCoin package to the list. It’s a $25 package (6000 SmashCoins) that will also include a special pack of rare items. The set will only last for a while, and then it will get replaced with a brand new set. The first set features a special set created by Dage the Evil, of AQW fame.

It’s the SkyFrost set, and it includes and armor, helm, gun, and cape. Once you purchase the SmashCoin package the items will automatically be put in your inventory. While you can buy the SmashCoin package as many times as you like, you will only get ONE COPY of the item set. This is one good lookin set, and not to be missed.

 

Whew – That’s a lot of stuff to do this week. I better get to work!

Paint the Town Yellow… Literally!

So as much as I would like to jump for joy, being my birthday and all, there is a slight problem with the clones. You see, at first the clones were working great! They were busy all throughout the town, decorating for my birthday, but we needed more. To save time we made copies of the clones. But then we needed more, so we made copies of those copies. Well – the guys at the lab got a little sloppy, and I think some Chuddling DNA got mixed with mine. And well, that’s never good. So while I am happy that it’s my birthday, I’ve got a city full of Yerglings running amok. You can see my predicament. Help me out, and I’ll make it worth your wild.

I have set up a Merge shop, and if you help me out, I’ll give you yellow tickets. You can get some cool yellow gear to load up on, and show your Yergen Spirit. There will also be a smash coin shop giving out some Yer-tastic items as well.

There are even some past armors that I have Yergen-ized. They are important armors to me, and give a little insight to who Yergen really is. For those that complete the entire Yergen Birthday event there will even be the special Big Yellow Badge awarded.

Have fun at my birthday! It was a blast to make, and I hope you have a great time playing it! BTW - Big thanks to Dumoose who helped me with the quests. I was so busy making stuff - I didn't have time to give y'all something to do!

Next week – PvP

That’s right, PvP opens up for ALL players. So get ready to do some smashing. Who knew that spontaneous releases meant every week. Sheesh. I gotta have a stern talk with myself about this.

Birthday Items Sneak Peak

Things have been going great since I created those clones! Birthday preparations have increased 200%. The clones are working so great, I might need to make more. Speaking of clones- How do I know that this isn’t one of the clones writing this? How do I know if I am not currently one of the clones? Hmm, this is going to take some serious thought. Well, while I ponder my own existence I’ll leave you with a sneak peek of some birthday items.

 

You’ll notice a certain aviary weapon. Yup – for reals, it’s coming to the game. There is also a mutant yergen in a jar head morph, as well as the sword I would like to call the Yergen Sword of Yergen.

Working hard, or hardly working?

Man, getting all this stuff ready for my birthday is really hard work. I’ve got maps to paint yellow, items to create, other items to paint yellow. I guess what I’m saying, is I need more of me, and I need a WHOLE lot more yellow paint.

 

More of me….. More of me. That’s one heck of a good idea. Hm. If I get the boys at the lab (no, the other lab) to whip me up some clones, then I could quickly make even MORE birthday decorations. What an amazing idea! Why didn’t I think of this years ago? What could possibly go wrong?

Cyber Monday brings the Cyber Knight!

Cyber Monday is upon us! I was having some trouble really feeling the right look for this SmashCoin item set. I knew I wanted the theme of Cyber Knight, but wasn't sure quite where to go with it. So I called up Thyton on Saturday, and asked him to come up with something really cool for me. Boy did he really hit a home run! This is one cool armor.

On this set, I went with an armor, helm, and I had to do a falcon like pet/cape thingy. They came out pretty sweet. So for all you heroes, this is your chance. Get this Super Mega Ultra Rare item while you can. Cause tommorrow around this time it will be gone for good!

Black Friday Items: Villain Fantastic!

It's Black Friday, and while some stores are offering crazy deals on just ok stuff, I figured I would offer a once in a life time oppourtunity to buy a really cool set. I decided to run with the "black" them of the day and make a villain centric set. I give you Villain Fantastic!

This is one scary set. I think there are enough skulls in this set, but I'm pretty sure Artix would want some more... and on fire. Now for the fun part. In honor of this being a special day these SmashCoin items have been tagged SUPER MEGA ULTRA RARE! How often does that happen?! Actually I dont really know, but I would think it's not that often.

You may be wondering if these items are faction specific? In the end I thought long and hard on it (about 2 minutes or so). And I came to the conclusion that everyone should get them, if they want. There could be some heroes that use fear to intimidate their enemies, and a skull faced armor is just what they need. The three items can be found in the SmashGiving shop! Have fun with it!

A lesson on SmashGiving

People always ask me – “Yergen, What is the story of SmashGiving?” Well grab a pillow, and settle in, because story time is about to begin.

Once upon a time, about – oohh – seventy-five years ago, there were early settlers in our great Super City. Of course back then it wasn’t known as Super City, it was called Ye Olde Tyme City. The people of Ye Olde Tyme City were a nice bunch of people. Yet one dark and stormy night a band of roving Yeti’s entered the town. They destroyed everything, and ate all the Ye Olde Tyme City’s food. The next few months were hard for the people. They did what they could to bring their town to the wonder and beauty that it was, but their hearts were broken, and they couldn’t bring themselves to finish. It was a sad sad time, and the people of Ye Olde Tyme City.

But when everything looked darkest, from out of the stars came a gleaming space ship. The space ship landed, and from out of it came my great great great grandfather, Flergen Von Shmergenbergen. He said he was from the distant land of Shmergonia. Well as you can image the people of Ye Olde Tyme City were flabbergasted. But a little child stepped up to Flergen, and asked if he needed anything. Well Flergen was so touched, by the selfless geasture that he called his alien friends, and they brought all kinds of things for the settlers of Ye Olde Tyme City.

When the setters were back on track they had a great feast to thank the aliens, and Flergen. The aliens brought all kinds of wild and exotic foods to the table. The gelatinous Sneezlefobs introduced, Turkey to the settlers, who decided to roast it with stuffing. The hairy BobBeasts from Pleasior 9 brought mashed potatoes to the feast, and Flergen added some gravy to it. The seductive Swizzillians introduced a pie to the feast. This pie was made from something they called a pumpkin. Lastly, the dreaded Funderhounds brought Flunder Pudding. It was so terrible, that no one touched it, and the Flunderhounds were asked to leave.

Suddenly in the middle of the feast the yetis came back, and this time they brought robotic dinosaurs, and werewolves with them. Without a step, Flergen jumped from the table, and single handedly knocked the teeth out of every werewolf. Then he turned his attention to the robotic dinosaurs. With his bare hands he ripped apart each metal casing of those robotic rebels. Lastly, were the yetis. Flergen lunged towards the fury force, and with his entire might defeated every last one. As the smoke cleared, the settlers of Ye Olde Tyme City saw Flergen Von Shmergenbergen emerge victorious. They ran, cheering towards him, and lifted them on their shoulders.

Since then we have been celebrating SmashGiving, to give thanks for all the good things we have, and for all that aliens from other worlds have brought us.

And that’s the true story of SmashGiving, or at least how my grandfather told it to me.

What’s going to happen next week?

Well well, my power people. A certain adorable yellow mayor’s birthday is next week, so expect something yellow next week. Oh yes, there will be yellow.

The Killer's Code and a PvP Update

A new movie has been releases in the Market Street Movie-Plex. This movie is about the hit game, Killer’s Code.

The items will make you part of an elite and mysterious group of killer assassins. Jemini, Randor, and Polistar really made some awesome items. Hope you enjoy them!

PvP Bug Update

Llussion has been working hard fixing some of the bigger bugs in the PvP matches. The first main bug he addressed was the helm bug. So that should be working again. The next big thing he tackled was lag. While there may still be lag, we have a better understanding of what is causing the lag. Your testing is telling us a lot, and helping make PvP better, and better!

On the PvP Horizon

Rolith has been helping us build the ground work for the leaderboards. Hopefully those will be up soon. I’ll keep you posted! Smash On!

HeroSmash PvP Member Testing Has Begun!

HeroSmash members (and those AQW VIP members) can now log in to HeroSmash, and have Dumoose take you to the Smashdome! There you can pick up your Ultra Rare PvP founder Armor and Sword, as well as some cool powers built with PVP in mind. Once you are itemed up – get in and start playing PvP!!!

Oh yes, there will be bugs

So the version members are going to be testing is most definitely a “work in progress”, but we are so excited that we had to let you check it out early. Remember that to make PvP we need YOUR input. Make sure you fill out all bug reports properly in the forums. Reporting to me or other team members via Twitter, will not make it get fixed any faster, Trust me, the forums is the most organized way to report PvP bugs.

Here are a list of know Bugs – just to keep an eye out for them and confirm them.

  • The Scores – Currently we are not tracking and saving your PvP score. The score system is working, and the score you are getting is correct, but we are just not tracking it… yet.
  • Some Map Issues – Sometimes the maps tend to not load up. It’s all right though – simply /join smashdome again and re-queue. Of course report the bug and let us know.
  • More Maps? – We will have more maps, but for the time being we just need to test the ones we have.
  • Leaving a Queue – If you leave a queue and then try to get back in – well, that’s a bug, and you won’t be able to. To fix this you can do two different things. One, Simply leave the Smashdome, and come back, and everything will be back to normal. Two, Wait a good 10 seconds after you leave the queue before you re-queue.
  • Always Say Yes - When you get asked to confirm loading into the match ALWAYS say YES. If you say no, then everyone gets lost in waiting limbo. If you really didn't want to play say yes, and then leave ove the match starts.
  • Death Gate Re-Entry – When you die in PvP you get sent to the Death Gate (obviously). Super Death has arranged a portal to get you back into the game. Running over the portal will get you back fighting, but the portal can be a little buggy, and may need a couple of tries running over it to make it send you.

What about the PvP founder Badge?

That’s going to get awarded when the Member PvP testing is over (December 8th). What happens if your membership ends between now and then? No worries, as long as you were a member and tested PvP at some point before your membership ended, you will still get your badge. If you become a member at some point between now and the 8th and test PvP, then you will also get your badge. See? We think of everything (or at least try to).

 

That’s all I can think of for now. So sit back, settle in, and time to get your Smash On!

Big news on HeroSmash PvP

Hey power people; I have two really big announcements about HeroSmash PvP! 

The first announcement is that we are going to launch PvP for all players on HeroSmash’s Birthday! That’s right December 9th, will be smash time. I will announce some more of the new features as we get closer to the release, but mark those calendars!

Now so many people have been asking me if they can play, or try out PvP. Well have I got some news for YOU. This Thursday (11-10-11), HeroSmash members will be able to get in and TEST OUT HeroSmash PvP before everyone else! That’s right – You will be able to get in and test out what we have so far, let us know what you think, and if you find any bugs (Oh yes. There will be bugs). As an added bonus, for testing, members will have access to a special PvP rare shop, to get some cool items, and when the testing is over they will receive a special badge that states that they are PvP FOUNDERS! This amazing offer and opportunity is for members only. Our members are the best! This is our way of saying thank you.

We are making huge strides in developing it. Llussion is being a power house and making this one heck of a game. We are pushing the PvP beyond what so many of you are familiar with. It’s really going to be a blast. All of us who have been testing are having a lot of fun.  I look forward to having you all get in and beat the math out of each other.

What time is it? PVP Adventure Time!

With PumpCON winding down, I have time to do a HSPvP update.

Llusion has got 1v1 working – it’s pretty sweet – but lately we have been testing the Battle Royal mode. Hatchi matchi what fun! A group of players in a no hold barred brawl against each other. It’s wonderful. We had a fun Battle Session while testing. Here are some screen shots Dumoose took.

As you can see, HSPvP is going strong. I’ll fill you in when I have some more cool stuff for you!

A PVP update, and new stuff for PumpCON

Hey power people! It's new day, at a new lab. How about some updates?

PVP secrets revealed!

HeroSmash PVP is going really good. Llusion has been cranking through it, and really doing a great job. He's made big steps, but we have a long ways to go. I thought I would fill you in on some stuff we have been talking about.

There are two main issues we have worked out. The first is that we are going to have scrollable maps in our HSPVP battles. There is no running and hiding in HeroSmash! It will help make the battles really feel like a battlefield that you can explore AND fight in. Speaking of battlefileds, is there any HeroSmash maps and locations that you would like to see turned into a HSPVP battlezone? Let me know!

The second big thing is we have determined what the main HSPVP playing options will be. There will be a 1-v-1 for battling a buddy. 3-v-3 for group battles. And then there is the one I am really excited about - BATTLE ROYAL!!! Imagine it. A mass group of heroes and villains fighting in one giant map. It will be utter chaos! Ahhhh - I love the smell of chaos. It's a mixture of cookies, and ginger. 

PumpCON secret unlocked!

That' it for the HSPVP updates. But there is going to be a game update this week. More PumpCON items will be arriving in the fairgrounds this week. Get yourself in the spooky mood! Keep sending in the PumpCON Cosplay contest entries. They are looking AMAZING! Well that's all not really a secret - but I was just sticking with the theme.

Three little letters – P – V – P!

We here at HeroSmash have been reading your requests, and it’s apparent that you want one thing – PVP. AQW already has PVP, but we here at HeroSmash know we can do it way better, so I had an idea. Let’s take and make HeroSmash a massive multiplayer online PVP game! It just makes sense. What do heroes and villains like to do, but beat each other up! Actually it makes the trailer I made earlier on make complete sense.

So here is the plan. We are going to take our time, and have Llussion build HeroSmash into a high octane, action packed, super hero PVP game, in which you can battle with friends and enemies in various PVP battles. In the meantime, in order to make this new update the HeroSmash release schedule will take on a more spontaneous nature, releasing items and armors here and there. This will be similar to how Epic Duel handles their release schedule.

You probably have some question, and I have some answers. What will the PVP be like? Good question. Not sure. I have some really cool ideas, so it should be amazing. What about the Clock Blocker story line? I am working on that now, and will be included in the spontaneous release schedule. What is a spontaneous schedule mean? Well HeroSmash was never meant to have weekly releases, but being the awesome team we are, we just couldn’t help but release stuff weekly, if not daily. The spontaneous schedule will probably be kind of a surprise. It may be a week, it may be a month. I will update the design notes when there are new releases – so always check in. Will it be like Epic Duel? Good Question – Next! No really, will it be like Epic Duel? It will be its own thing. We will look at all of our great games, and create something that will be really fun, and “battle-tastic”! What about members? Members will always get excusive content that will make being a member completely worth it. Will there be leader boards? If I get my way, then you bet! Why is Yergen Yellow? What other color would you expect Yergen to be? Will you keep us posted on the PVP development? You bet! In fact – I would love to hear YOUR ideas for what PVP in HeroSmash should be.

That’s it from me power people! I’m headed off to HeroSmash PVP land! Smash On!

Pleasanton Oaks needs your help!

Pleasanton Oaks is under attack

You have cleared the town of Pleasanton of the Time Sentinels, but a new threat has emerged in the sleepy suburb of Pleasanton Oaks.

Journey to Pleasanton Oaks where all the citizens have gone into hiding from the Sentinels. Clock Blocker's Space Sentinels have overtaken suburbia and only pets are allowed outdoors. Here you will meet Deeoohgee the super good pup, and General Fluffles the super evil kitty cat!

Both cuddly critters will send you on quests throughout Pleasanton Oaks as you get one step closer to blocking Clock Blocker's plans! Two, fully animated cutscenes help the story unfold, and include a special guest star. George Lowe! That’s right; AE’s favorite voice lends his to HeroSmash for the first time.

Oh, and don't forget to look for Ghouldo! Dumoose added him into the map, so you'll have to look close.

PumpCON 2011 Starts next week!

Now that we officially have a name for it, next week kicks off HeroSmash’s first ever PumpCON! Defeat Vile Vegetables and one Wicked Wolf man. Collect candy for the Boo brothers, and they will in turn reward you with some hauntingly good items.

PumpCON also starts with its first ever HeroSmash Cosplay Contest! The RULES are fairly simple. Use our template to put your HeroSmash character in whatever costume you want. The possibilities are endless. You could draw up your HeroSmash avatar as your favorite Anime character, or as a big bad video game boss, or maybe you want to wear the outfit belonging to your favorite trademarked super hero that we cannot affiliate ourselves with due to copyright infringement laws ^___^

So get your pencils, paper, tablets, and photoshop ready and prepare to bring on the PumpCON!

Speaking of Pumpkins…

AE’s third annual pumpkin carving contest is kicking into gear as well.

So all of you HeroSmash fans out there grab a pumpkin and get carving. Let’s see some HeroSmashed Squashes! Enter your submissions HERE.

Lost in time, and a Timely Doctor - What a week!

Beleen has been writing the Design Notes for so long – Now it’s MY turn. MuHAHAHAHAHAhahahaha!

 

What Future Is This?

HeroSmash Members will get to see a special sneak of the future of Earth as it is in the year 2511. The Oblivion has almost decimated it, and now you are stuck there! Can you find the tools needed to create an Antimatter Mechanism to get you back to your time? Or will you be just one more morsel on the Oblivion’s Earth Buffet?

See what Pleasanton looks like in the year 2511, and bring back some intense Oblivion Technology from the future!

 

Is there a Doctor in the Mega Plex?

Say goodbye to Barbarian goods, and say hello to some a very unique doctor. Your favorite time traveling British TV program is hitting the big screen at the Mega Movie Plex. This popular show features an alien doctor who has the ability to travel through space and time. This doctor has traveled so much that he’s forgotten his name—along with the show’s title! Was it Doctor What? Doctor When? Doctor Huh? Doctor Whom? Who knows!

Fans all over should head immediately to Market street and pick up your doctor wares. Not a fan? Well they have a cool mop for sale.

 

Sneak Peek? Well I guess

This time twisting tale is not over yet power people. The people in Pleasanton Oaks are now seeing Time Sentinels. They have all hidden in their houses. The only thing roaming the streets is Cats and Dogs! Plus surprise guest voice will appear in next week’s cut scenes. Here’s a hint – it rhymes with Shmeorge Glowe. This next release is for ALL PLAYERS! Next week is going to be fun!
