Thanks for pointing out the typo, Nullzone! Not sure how I missed that, but I've seen these screens so many times now that I guess you just stop noticing things!

I agree with the rust/dirt/grime, and we might add some more in, but it's tough to get a nice balance of dirty looking and still having the interface 'clean' and legible, if that makes any sense.

Only one nation has a German theme, so I'm hoping people don't get too put off by it. It is a worry of mine, but I think the character it brings to them thematically is worth people getting a little confused. I think the Raketenpanzerbüchse is my biggest concern, but it just sounds so cool! (To me anyway!)

Thanks again for your always excellent input and eye for detail!

Thanks so much, Darth Nihilus!

We've got a new build we'll be deploying on our devices tomorrow, and it's pretty much got all the pieces in place as far as gameplay is concerned. We've still got a ton of work to do, but it's starting to get really exciting over here!

Default Diesel Tactics Achievements and Titles

Hey guys,

One of the cool things we're doing in Diesel Tactics with achievements is that they unlock titles for you to use which your opponent will see when they're playing against you. It's another way to customize your persona in addition to your avatar. For example, as soon as you hit the 1800 mark for your Elo rating, you unlock the title 'Major'. So, if you wanted to use that title and your username was "Malaise" your name would display to other users as "General Malaise"!

There are essentially two ways to unlock titles: reaching a given Elo rating and completing achievements. Your Elo rating works similarly to Go, Chess, or League of Legends, where the more skilled the opponent you beat, the more your rating moves up and vice versa. Attaining certain ratings permanently unlocks titles for you to use, so you can intimidate opponents with titles only available to skilled players!

Aside from your rating, achievements that you unlock also provide you with a new title that you can use if you want. Here's some of the achievements that we're looking at using as of right now, though this list is subject to change!

The format is: "Achievement Name" - What you need to do to get the achievement - "Title unlocked"



“First Blood” - Win a game - "Ring Knocker"

"Bug Out" - Surrender a game - "Général" (is that offensive?)

"Grease Monkey" - Field and win with an all vehicle army - "Grease Monkey"

“For the Fatherland!” - Win 5 games with Kaiserreich Nation - "Alleyman"



We're going to have a ton of achievements and titles, so I think everyone should be able to find a title that they like!

If you've got any thoughts or suggestions we'd love to hear them, so let us know!

Default WIP Conveyable Matter Liquefier Specialist

Hey everyone,

Our awesome animator, Germán Gaussmann, found that having the Usonian nation's 'Conveyable Matter Liquefier Specialist' (flamethrower!) unit pull out a knife for their close combat attack looked sort of awkward while holding their flamethrower, so he went ahead and made this awesome spring loaded bayonet for them!

It may not have made them deadlier (they're already plenty deadly!), but it does make them even cooler!

Not sure what's up with the weird pink in the preview image!
