Release 017 – Client/Server rework!

Attention Mercs,


We will sync Release 017 tomorrow, Tuesday 15th, 0800 CEST. With this release we will deploy quite a few bug fixes but more importantly we will introduce a completely new client-server communication. As many of you have probably unfortunately experienced performance issues, lag and maybe even disconnects. We reworked the way that the Merc Elite client “talks” to the server to improve reliability and slim down the data that is actually sent.


With that being said, please keep an eye on the performance or any errors and exceptions that could pop up! In case that you see critical errors or anything similar, please report these issues either via forum or support ticket! In basically every case we also will need a screenshot of the error message, a description of what you did when it happened and the logfiles. If you are playing the client version you will find the logfiles that we need here [default settings]:


For the Game:
c:\Program Files (x86)\Merc Elite\packages\MercElite_Data\output_log.txt


For the Launcher:
c:\Program Files (x86)\Merc Elite\MercEliteLauncher_Data\output_log.txt


With your help we can start fixing these issues as soon as possible and make the game even smoother.

Please feel free to leave some feedback about this new Release >>click here<<


Regards,
Your Merc Elite team.

Changes to the General Terms & Conditions Effective as of June 24, 2014

Changes to the General Terms & Conditions Effective as of June 24, 2014


Attention Mercs!

On June 24, 2014, Bigpoint shall make changes to its General Terms & Conditions.

We hereby wish to explain which changes were made and why.


FAQ
Q: Are all players be affected by the change?

A: The change affects all player accounts registered with Bigpoint Sarl & Co, SCS. Players registered with Bigpoint Inc. are not affected and shall therefore not be asked to accept the new Terms & Conditions.

Q: What changes will be made to the General Terms & Conditions?

A: As you may have already noticed, the so-called EU Directive on Consumer Rights came into force on June 13, 2014. This Directive's purpose is to harmonize consumer rights within the European Union, especially within online shopping.

An example: Should you as a citizen of the EU buy items online from another EU country, you must no longer worry about whether or not the same cancellation policy exists in the other country as in yours. Starting as of June 13, 2014, the right to cancellation shall be the same across all European Union countries.


Q: Must I re-accept the General Terms & Conditions?

A: Yes, since we too had to adapt the provisions to our cancellation policy. The new Terms & Conditions take effect as of June 24, 2014. We are therefore obligated to ask you to explicitly accept the updated General Terms & Conditions.

For this reason, starting on June 24, 2014, you will be shown a pop-up window with the General Terms & Conditions and you must accept them before being able to continue playing.

Q: What happens if I do not accept the General Terms & Conditions?

A: When these General Terms and Conditions take effect, you can of course decide not to accept them. This however shall mean that you will not be able to continue playing the game. Should you wish to take formal action against this, you must do so in writing and you must send your writing in the mail to our office in Luxembourg. The address can be found at the end of the General Terms & Conditions as well as on our company website.


Kind Regards,

Your Merc Elite Team

Merc Elite – The next weeks!

Attention Mercs,


Don’t fret – we are still with you and are still working on Merc Elite! The reason for the absence of new Mercs, maps and missions is that we are working on a few major features that will not only improve Merc Elite but bring it to a whole new level! But for this to be successful we unfortunately have to work basically on everything at the same time.


That means that we have to work on the code as well as on the Mercs as well as on the maps as well as on the balancing as well as on the controls to make everything behave in-sync and not blow up as soon as it goes live. Our next bigger update is rather an upgrade, as it will address the performance in terms of delay and connectivity and will pave the way for being able to reconnect to a running match. The reconnect feature will take a little longer to be implemented though.


We also apologize for the lack of information in the past weeks and will make it up to you in the coming weeks and month and bring you closer to how we develop Merc Elite and also explain why it took us so long!


Regards,

Your Merc Elite team.

Ultimate Gamecards (US Players-only)

Attention Mercs,

We're writing to inform you that Ultimate GameCards will no longer be redeemable in your Payment Shop from the end of July: this is due to VISA discontinuing the service. You can find out more information here: http://www.ultimategamecard.com/

As a replacement for this you will soon be able to purchase the BigPoint Gamecard in stores such as Target. Please see the attached image so you can see what these will look like.

All the best

Release 014 - The Outback Release

Attention Mercs,
We have just deployed Release 014 - The Outback Release. And the most important thing to mention here are - of course - the new map OUTBACK! But that is not all! We have deployed a whole bag of goodies with this release! So let's get into more detail:

New Map: Outback
From the inner city through the arctic cold, we now arrive in the desert. It is up to you and your team to win the battle on our new map OUTBACK. The new map is designed to have fast flowing action, with a lot of tight spaces, little nooks and crannies for ambushes but still enough ground to cover to allow for chases! What is different from the other maps, is the decrease of respawn points. There are only your starting positions that will let you respawn!

New Cover Handling for Bots
We improved the way that the bots behave during the search for and the use of cover depending on the difficulty level you have chosen to play. We have also set them up to better work with everything that has yet to come.

New Shop
You need the shop to hire new Mercs, stock up on consumables and a lot more. To do this properly we cleaned up and rearranged the shop to make it easier to use and nicer to look at. That way you will always be informed about new sales and have better access to everything that you might need.

Fixes & Improvements
- Rebalanced the difficulty of the bots in the entry matches to give new players a better experience
- 30+ Translation errors fixed / translations improved.
- 20+ visual effects fixed / improved
- Several problems with missions fixed

- And something else is there as well … but it is still inactive, waiting, to be released …

That’s it for now,
Your Merc Elite team.
