Super Monday Night Combat gets Metal!

Posted by: Nathan at 6/15/2012 11:40 AM


 

The rules have changed again for Super Monday Night Combat and this week brings metal taunts for all pros which you can see in the above video. Looks like a live performance of MegaBeth's band "Hacksaw Circumcision." 

Also changing this week is opening up the 2x3 game pool to allow solo players to opt in. This will bring down the queue times to get in game. 

Other changes include minor bug fixes, pro buffs, nerfs, and a change to pros with explosive skills. Now the damage will scale depending on how close you were to the explosive went off. Before you would take full damage regardless of how close you were to the blast radius.

The free pro rotation this week is Assault, Cheston, Megabeth, Tank, Support, Wascot. 

Super Monday Night Combat is a FREE to play game currently available on Steam

Check out the patch notes below for all the details!



Free Pro Rotation: Assault, Cheston, Megabeth, Tank, Support, Wascot

Chip Valvano: In my day, Rule Changes 11 had extra cinnamon on those things!

Rock out! Check out our new line of "Monday Night Metal" taunts! Show your enemies how you shred on the battlefield.

We've opened up the 2x3 match making options to allow solo players to opt into that pool. This should bring down some of the queue times. We also now display average queue time in the regions so players can get a better idea how long they may be waiting.

As always, feel free to leave us feedback at http://www.uberent.com/forums! If you have issues please email support@uberent.com.
