Enter the Shocktopus!


#1

HI everyone,

As you probably know, the Shocktopus wriggled his way into the Soulforge yesterday, a few days before he was planned to release!

So we Shoved him into chests last night as well, just to be consistent.
(and if you’ve ever tried to shove a Shocktopus into a chest… it’s a little like trying to relocate a seagull into a gumboot)

Never fear! We’ll still be doing a mailout on Wednesday/Thursday with a free Shocktopus for everyone (and some extras for the competition winners).

Nice ty sirrian!!!


#3

What on Earth is a gumboot?


#4

It’s what Australians call a rubber boot, or a Wellington.


#5

Oh wellies. I can only imagine the struggles.


#6

Lol @jzg
Chat was acting up so I don’t know if you saw my post but when you asked when Shocktopus was coming out. I replied Wednesday for Valentine’s day. Looks like my fake news could be right. :wink:


#7

Anyone found a good team with it yet?

I tried

Gorgo
Glitter
Shocto
Magnus

It wasn’t bad but not excellent


#8

Seaguls? Shocktopus? Stuffed inside a Wellington?

#9

Does this mean that Wednesday or Thursday 3.3 may be going live ?


#10

Is it coming with or without traits


#11

Thanks for the troop! Can’t wait for the mailer!!

:hugs:


#12

According to my sources…
3.3 is awaiting client approval. So it could be anytime now. They would not confirm any set date for the release other than sometime this month.


#13

:soon::tm:

:stuck_out_tongue:


#15

Do you have/need the invite codes for the winners?


#16

@Ghaleon, no it doesn’t. We just wanted to release Shocktopus for Valentine’s Day. (Insert tentacle love joke here.)

@Venar, it will come traited for some of the winners of the design a troop competition. For everyone else, it will be untraited. :slight_smile:


#17

Yay for cool stuff. When’s the next Design-a-troop project @saltypatra?


#18

Sorry, but I need to make a negative feedback comment:
You guys need to work on a few new sound bites for spells.
Shocktopus gets the guitar strings? Really?
Same for the sand bug, another recycled sound.


#19

This bugs me too. Giant spider and mantis also share the same SFX, plus numerous others.

Punny

10 char

Shocktopus SFX = Nimhain scream. It’s the troop of love, right?
