Trinket?! I hav' one! ...

... and I gonna share it!
Over the year following version 2.3's release, we've been hard at work expanding our team, improving the game, and adding new features for all 'ye landlubbers to sink your teeth into. We know you've all been patiently waiting for a preview of 2.4, so here it is!

One major feature of our new patch will be the introduction of a new game mode called Trinket Wars. Trinket Wars will replace the current Holy Grail mode, and bring a new level of team-oriented combat to the game. The mechanics are simple - each team has its own trinket to look after. As each team scores kills in the presence of their trinket carrier, they earn points toward victory. Killing an opposing team's trinket carrier awards your team a point, subtracts one from the enemy team, and replenishes health and armor to those who witnessed it. Today we introduce map tw_Temple with updated Captain voices!

Feast your eyes on our beautiful new game mode:


Also with the update comes a brand new set of voice commands for each class. We really wanted to give each class its own personality as we look toward adding new classes in the future. Kudos to Bingo Bango, TheForgotton, and DragonNOR for their spectacular work!

Have a listen, darling:


So, you've seen the new game mode, you've heard the new voices, now it's time for the bad news. It is with the deepest regret that I inform you we will not be able to include the Man-At-Arms, Sharpshooter, and Fort into the 2.4 update. But we got a crate made by Dudders for you:

Lovely, eh? We plan to introduce both the Man-At-Arms and Sharpshooter in the update following 2.4.

That's all for now. I hope you all had as much fun as I did.


EDIT by Bingo Bango: Also, everyone, don't forget to vote for us for ModDB's MotY - only two days left! http://www.moddb.com/events/2010-mod-of-th...top100#vote2214


Also, starting from this next release (2.4), subsequent gaps between releases won't be as long. That is to say that the wait between 2.3 & 2.4 will have been a lot longer than the wait between 2.4 & 2.5 - so more frequent updates for you all. So yo ho ho and a bottle of mulled wine for now. See you before Christmas.

    "'ello there monkey boy!"

    "Here doggy...come 'ere..."

    Hah hah, Skirm, you crack me up.

    Fantastic job, can't wait for it to be implemented, though I am saddened that you guys can't release the Man-at-Arms and the Sharpshooter yet, but ah well.
    I like to poke people with a pointy stick....is that so wrong?

    The singing taunts do seem a tad long, but it looks amazing. Hopefully you won't have too much trouble with the characters following 2.4 release and keep up the great work!

    It's too bad we won't be seeing the new classes just yet but all this audio awesomeness gives me strength. smile.gif
    also have the lightning effects been tweaked up, cos it certainly seems very maxed out! (especially the archer's sword in the video where sverek presents the new audio commands)

    lol going to make te_crateville where the entire map is a hill of the new crates. Best way to get to the top is by hacking and slashing from the ground up. lol no

    Ditto, We need the MAA and Sharpshooter pretty bad, but not as bad as I NEED THOSE VOICES! (and crates!) (and lighting) (and trinket wars!)

    Voices are perfect, though i would like to hear what zerker sounds like, well I guess the release is around a corner so im not complaining.

    EDIT: Also, what in the name of drunk skirmisher is that yelling in 2:39?
    Another edit: I just realised what it is and its nothing new, ignore my question
