Our Weekly 3 pm broadcast!

Hello everyone,

Good to see everyone has made it through the week. It’s definitely been quieter on our side giving us time to regroup and put a lot of work into both Co-Op and some exciting new ideas for Skirmish.

I want to give a big shout out to everyone who took part in the Teaching Tournament. They played over 210 games with novices which is almost 3,000 novices that received a much better introduction to the Guns of Icarus Universe.

Join us at 3 pm eastern at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus as we talk about everything we’ve done, everything we’re planning on doing, and take all your questions from balance, to favorite ships, to the stats that make up a lot of our game.

See what the team has been working on after the jump! Continue reading

This is what a DDoS attack looks like.

This is what a DDoS attack looks like.

Hello everyone,

It has been a whirlwind of a week with all the new players, the attacks, and working on Co-Op. I want to thank everyone again for their patience as we investigated solutions and tried our best to make sure you guys remained in the skies. We hope we have found a solution, but if you are having any issues logging into the game please send an email to feedback@musegames.com

As always you can hear about our week and ask questions you like during the fireside chat at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus.

Hello Everyone,

First things first, we want to explain what’s been happening. Starting on Saturday we began to be DDoS attacked by an unknown assailant. We are really saddened and disheartened, as this game and our players are our lives and everything that we’ve worked for. But we need to keep working. We have been working with our server provider over the weekend, but even now there appears to be residual effects from these attacks and some players are not having stable connections. We are still working with our service provider to get through this. And we promise our dedication to getting through this as soon as possible.

Secondly, let me thank you for sticking with us during this trying time. I know free time is a rare and precious commodity and the last thing you want is someone stopping you from having fun. It means the world to us that you want to enjoy the game and share our frustration with the attacks.

We are offering a free Morion Helmet to everyone who signs on while we’re dealing with this. A small token of apology for all the frustration. If you have already supported us and purchased the Morion Helmet, please email us at feedback@musegames.com and we’ll get you another free item.

In the meantime, if you have connection issues or anything else, please email us at feedback@musegames.com as well.

Thanks so much,

Hey everyone,

The team has been hard at work, but this week we’re going to talk about the community events starting tomorrow!

Right now on steam Guns of Icarus is on sale. This means you’re going to start to see a few more players in game. More than that though tomorrow is a giant youtuber event and the servers are going to be filled! We spent the week preparing for the new players and we’re super excited to see all our vets welcome in these newbies with open arms.

If you’re interested in earning items, badges, and points for playing with newbies.  Sign up for our teaching tournament. We’re going to have some amazing vet players teaching newbies the difference between a spanner and a mallet.
