New Classes

We have made MAJOR changes. We have updated the game to have 8 classes.

Striker Chassis
- Gunner
- Blazer

Light Chassis
- Scout
- Assassin

Heavy Chassis
- Tank
- Blaster

Utility Chassis
- Tech
- Shocker

Each class has 2 weapons, a Q and E ability, and it’s own F bomb type. Many weapons have an R function for attack or reloading. Alt-fire (RMB) target-locks in many cases or has a special function (like Gunner’s Rail Gun scoping). Some of the old classes have changed slightly. Read more about the classes in the Armory.

All class purchases are permanent. There are no rentals. We will rotate which classes you can play for free, so you can try them out.

No More Permanent Weapons?

You can no longer buy weapons. Everyone that has a permanent weapon will have the ability to convert it to one class of their choice. You can make this choice at any time. If you have more weapons than there are classes or you just want to, you can wait until the next 4 classes are released. Maybe a wait of weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience. The next classes will most likely be the Commando, Bomber, Basher, and Fixer.

If you had any active Cash rental weapons, you will be given a full Cash refund. You should see your Cash balance updated automatically.

Prices

This game is in beta. As we have posted from the beginning, prices are subject to change at any time. For now, we are setting the price of a class to 70 Kreds and 50,000 Cash, based on feedback we have heard from the community. We will offer Kred promotions from time to time.

Special Deal

We are offering a special deal to all players for their first 3 matches. At the end of each match you will be given a choice of taking the discount offer, or risking it for an even better offer. Everything about this promotion is subject to change.

Balancing

We made many changes. We will continue to balance the classes in every update. Please post your feedback in the forums.

Maps

No new maps in this update. We did fix a few of the map glitches, and created a bad one. If you “fall through the world” please report it via the forum link below. Let us know what class you had, what you were doing, where you were on the map, and who was attacking you, if you can.

Bug Fixes

We fixed many bugs. And created a bunch more. Please post any bugs you find to this forum thread: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/144-freefall-tournament/topics/313127-bug-report

Known Issues
- Friends bar is broken
- “Fall through the world” bug
- Possible memory issues

A good thing that the new classes are expensive because if they are glitchy or bugged new people would take advantage of it like the saber incident.

I’m glad they set the price to 50k Kreds. Then more people will take the Kreds option, which FRg definitely deserves. Totally trading my flare gun for one tho. Or may e not…

Shocker needs a serious buff, I have seen Shockers, but never seen them get kills. Personal opinion, Blaster Ultimate is not great either.

They aren’t meant to get kills, there like techs….

Also blasters Q is awesome for capturing points.
