Topic: Red Crucible / NEW RC2 FIRESTORM GAMEPLAY

Airstrikes in general are getting a face lift, but that major explosion was the bridge getting destroyed. As to the FPS, indeed it was on highest setting, specifically to test the impact the optimization was having. We are not done optimizing the levels, but I can say tha despite the improved graphics and effects the game is already improved in that regard.

As we get a little closer we will be releasing more polished videos of different aspects of the game, and going into more detail about what you see in those videos.

Topic: Red Crucible / Changes to the Store and an upcoming Video

The big surprise was the fact that the Bridge is destroyable in A& (throughout the levels there will be several things that are destructible).

We are not currently planning on permanently taking out any particular guns.

Also making a gun only available for a limited time, on a rotating schedule, does not force you to buy it. In fact it prevents you from buying it. We are not removing any guns permanently. If it is not in the store when you want to buy a particular gun, just wait a bit and it will be back. We are not trying to fool anyone with our beautiful words and “good intentions”. We actually have good intentions, and yes we hope that by making the store easier to navigate and less cluttered, we will make more money. We are a business and are here to make money, but in addition we want our players to have as enjoyable of an experience as possible along the way.

Topic: Red Crucible / Changes to the Store and an upcoming Video

Hello Community,

We wanted to inform you of some changes coming today in Red Crucible 2.
We are trying to make the game easier to understand, and more enjoyable for new players.

Along those lines we will be changing up the store drastically today. We will be removing most of the clutter from the store, and leaving only a few guns of each type. We will rotate out the guns in the store, with other guns on a fairly regular basis.

We will be rotating out special deals on a few weapons at a time, These will always be in the promotions section, and will always have a timer indicating the length they will be discounted for.

As an added bonus today, we have a small video of some recent game test footage, featuring a new game mode, and a big surprise near the end!

Here is a link to the Video: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=639183592866429&set=vb.126605594124234&type=2&theater

Topic: Red Crucible / Selling a free gun? Really?

Yes we are selling it, because it is a gold quality weapon. We gave it out for free to players to commemorate getting to two million likes. That does not mean that players should not be able to get the weapon, just that they should not get it for free.

Topic: Red Crucible / Big Updated ?

Optimization is of primary importance to us with Firestorm. We have spent and will be spending quite a bit of extra production time making sure the maps are as optimized for performance as possible.

In a way, after all this backlash because of those stupid mistakes they made in the past. I’d assume Firestorm had its release setback multiple times due to optimization. Something I don’t feel too worried about if they want to continue with this game. Another poor optimization incident is a death sentence, especially making a debut on Steam.

I’m more worried about the lack of servers they have. Really hope they’ve made some much needed expansions, and if they allow payments to be merged with Steam Wallet.

This is not correct. We never ever released a specific date for Firestorms release. We originally said that if all goes well it would be mid summer. Our production of Firestorm is taking longer than we expected, and we have since said that our target for release is now late October or early November.

Topic: Red Crucible / Reduce Prem gun prices/ 100 Coins opt.

We are working as a company to standardize our terminology. We refer to our gold silver and bronze quality weapons as premium weapons. We are trying to get away from the terminology Limited Edition.

Topic: Red Crucible / Wraith G

First of all, inappropriate language here in the forums will get you banned from the game, so clean it up. You are welcome to express your opinion, but it needs to be in a respectful or polite way.

Yes the Wraith is almost exactly like the Milestone. Yes the Milestone was free, but that does not mean it was a worthless free gun. It means that we gave out a gold quality weapon. Also there are many players who were not around to get the Milestone, and want a gun similar to it.

Hello Community,

The previously announced change to the level progression weapons is now in game.

The Ak74u has been replaced with the D-18. The D-18 is an automatic pistol.

The Ak74u is now in the store for 300 coins or 30k Honor Points. ( yes this means that if you bought extras you can sell them for 30k honor during the free exchange week.)

Topic: Red Crucible / Major Changes to the Weapon system ( Take 2)

Hello Community,
As usual lately I have a lot of announcements. The Free Exchange weekend should start around 5pm PST. Also we have addressed the Snipers now. Snow ball Cannon, Patriot, MG3, MG36, Pain Killer,and M16c have all been adjusted as well. Demolition weapons will not be further changed (other than the mobility changes already made) until after firestorm, to accommodate the new vehicle system.

One other major change coming very soon is that we are moving the AK74u out of the level Progression and replacing it with a automatic pistol called the Dragon. We will not be removing the AK74u from the game, it will become an Primary Assault Weapon. This change will occur on Wednesday Sept 10th.

We have also changed the Double Dz to fully automatic pistols with a 1 second slower reload speed (3 to 4, same as the Dual Uzi’s).

Topic: Red Crucible / Major Changes to the Weapon system ( Take 2)

Good Day Community,

We have been working tirelessly to make some further adjustments to the weapon balance. Before we get into the specifics I would like to go over our thought process. We are standardizing our weapon system by caliber and category of the weapon. What this means is damage will be the same for all guns of the same caliber. In fact most of the statistics of our guns like Fire Rate, Reload Speed, and Range will be standard to the type of gun and caliber.

Our new philosophy on Premium Weapons will start to be more like what we did with the Vortex.
Bronze Quality – Will be what we consider standard.
Silver Quality – Similar to bronze in that things like Fire Rate, Range, and Damage will not change, but it will have a better sight, and 2-4% better accuracy and Recoil.
Gold Quality – Will have 3-5% better Accuracy and Recoil than the Silver. Also another attachment, a better skin, and better capacity.

Basically what you are paying for when you pay for the higher quality is better recoil, accuracy and cooler attachments. In other words ease of use, is what we are going for. We are going with this system because its is fair to all players in that a player playing with a bronze will still kill other players in the same amount of shots, at the same range and speed than a player using a gold version. However a gold version will be easier to use.

Now understand that category is also a factor. For instance Sniper Rifles will all be 99% or 100% accuracy, so recoil is going to be a big factor, the Snipers that kill in one shot are going to have higher recoil, and the ones that take multiple will have much lower. This wont show up as much in the statistics, but Snipers are a very fine tuned weapon, and therefore the differences may look small but will be very important.

The pictures below only encompass the Assault, Support, Pistol, and Sub Machine Gun categories. All we are changing currently on Sniper Rifles is the Mobility, and Capacity. We will be addressing them more in the near future. In the Demolition category, we have only adjusted the mobility, and will also be addressing them more in the near future as well.
One change not listed below is that the Cobra will be moving to a 700m Range.
