The new Merc Elite Forum
by now you can only read on this forum and no longer post any new threads or reply to existing threads. Our new forum is now live and it also supports CZ, DA, DE, EN , ES, FR, HU, IT, NL,PL, PT, RU and TR now! We are still getting rid of some small issues but this new forum is already way more fun than the last one!
It´s a bit different so to help you with the new forum there´s a thread explaining the main layout and the new features of the forum, hopefully it will answer most of your questions you may have about the forum when you use it the first time:

We have just deployed Release 012 – The Custom Release – which features Custom Games as well as a whole bunch of goodies! Now let's get into more detail:
1) Custom Games
Yes, that's right – you now can create custom games and invite your friends to a little friendly competition, some impromptu clan fights or battles against bots! Host games for up to ten players or just fill up the empty slots with bots. Select the map you want to play on, then the Tier range and start playing! It is that easy!
2) Bot Difficulty Levels
We have tinkered with the AI, so that you can now adjust the bot difficulty level to match your playing style in your Custom Games!
3) New Map – Deep Freeze!
In addition to the Custom Games, we have added a new map – DEEP FREEZE! And if you can't wait until you get your next assignment on this map, just use the Custom Games to check it out earlier! And it has rockets!
4) Automatic Default Graphic Quality Settings
After updating to Release 012, all graphic settings will be reset and automatically adjusted once. The settings of new players will also be adjusted to better match their machines' capabilities and improve their experience while playing Merc Elite.
5) General Fixes and Improvements
Chat: We have slightly changed the way the chat choses language-specific channels, so that you always will be connected to the correct language channel.
Performance: We found and fixed several sources of lag during the start of the match and during the matches themselves. We also fixed issues that after switching to full-screen mode.
Shop: When you click through the different Mercs in the shop, you will now hear a preview of their voices.
We also squashed a huge amount of bugs and sorted out several language errors, typos, tooltips and much more!
We rebalanced the DPS output of the Heavy and fixed an Overcharge bug that sometimes appeared for the Assault.
- Decreased weapon damage from 22 to 20
- Decreased weapon damage from 1.4 to 1.3
- Effective range is now 11 (so that the weapon's effective range and the damage scale down when the target is further away)
- Fixed a bug where the attack speed bonus scales with efficiency.
You can find the bug threads for Custom Games and the new map Deep Freeze in the Feedback section of the forum!

Short maintenance – 12.11.2013, starting at 0800 CET (UTC+1))
We will have a short maintenance tomorrow morning on Tuesday, 12th at 0800 CET (UTC+1)) to deploy an update that addresses various issues like not being able to create new squads or that skills are visible for units that have not reached the proper Tier level.
We will also change the way that you are joined into chat rooms – you will join the chatroom based on your GeoIP and also the Global EN chat. That means that you are now automatically in the global chat and in the chat room where you are located independently from the language you have selected that the game will be played in.
Feedback – Premium Units
The Premium Units have been out for a week and now that everybody had time to test them, we are eager to get your feedback. How do you like the new looks and audio from the Premium Units? What do you think about the exchanged skill? Do they play very differently from their standard counterparts? How do you feel that they are balanced? What else is on your mind in regards to the Premium Units?
Post your feedback in the Premium Unit Feedback thread.
