    Indeed! Crazy stuff dropped and about to drop! And since you asked for it, feel free to respond to these comments as directly as Corporate Communications will permit you:

    1- Worm Wars has turned into easy mode... perhaps a "hard" mode tier is in order (with a limited heal/special attack handicap)? Am I crazy? Maybe.

    2- One thing though with Shark Attack Zack: my dinky Aristo 5 slows down alot whenever he's on the screen.

    3- Also got into a situation with Lemon Nadine when I had wittled her team all the way down to just her and me with a full roster and could not beat her unless I constantly forfeited the battle so as not to let her get a turn in after being hit or she'd be back to full health. The first time I did this, it froze my entire OS and I had to do a hard reset, though the aforementioned Zack had been initially part of her group. The only other way I can think of is to put in a Brawler capable of one-shotting her, which is okay I guess but I have to test out my maxed cards for that one. Still, very awkward dealing with her.

    4- Huge Arena queue fix, looking forward to seeing how it changes the landscape.

    5- I really hope I don't have to have a full 7* retro set to get a chance at a full 7* Stan or Homer. I hate having to get them only about halfway then wait for another chance in how many months. That being said, I really love that you threw in Sal in the Bazaar. He'll have to wait after Adam Bomb of course, but does this confirm he won't have his own separate event?

    6- Can we also confirm the reason why we haven't received one of the most iconic GPKs in Evil Eddie? I assume it has something to do with his Barbie doll blood donor? If so, no other way to slightly change it up? We have all the Universal-esque monsters out here and it doesn't seem right without him. 

    The puns are more spicy than Spencer... Garbage "Cannes?" Bellissima!

    1: Worm Wars should not have turned into easy mode, what are you talking about? :D We fixed two major bugs and made the AI harder. That being said, graduating to a harder version after beating it N times is not out of the question as far as features go.

    2: Sorry about that. We need those animations to look awesome! The team actually has a bunch of optimization tasks on hand for the next few updates. They'll get to them as they can. I'm not sure if will help with animations specifically but it should reduce some texture sizes in memory and on disk and that might improve animation performance, I'm not sure.

    3: Uhhhhhhh it sounds like your device ran out of memory or something? Or it's possible that it just got really hot, and computers can actually behave in weird ways when hot. But anyway, we've heard some grumbling about Lemon Nadine's heal being too powerful as a level 100 in Worm Wars... and I get it, but it's definitely not the top of our list of stuff to fix right now. Sorry.

    4: Yeah it's pretty significant.

    5: We will add Stan and Zack to PvE. Homer will be an event exclusive for now. Sal had an event back in November for Thanksgiving. This seemed like a good way to add him back into the game. Gotta save some characters for new features!

    6: Not going to comment on this except to say that no, it's not because of the doll. :)

    Yeah, the good far outweighed the bad. Excellent mega-release! "Easy mode" was just my way of saying it's so much easier now than it was due to the heal bug, but the difficulty kinda grew on me and I'd like to see a super-spicy version at some point in the distant future. 

    Oh and one more thing: can we get a trash compactor or extension of the Store to:

    A: Turn in unwanted piles of Junk pieces for cash/gems.

    B: Convert unwanted CC points, Arena points, or (gasp) Worm Wars points into gems.

    Converting earnable currency to purchaseable currency is a big no-no, sorry. We'll find something else for you to do with your extra stuff though.

    I hope Evil Eddie does make it in the game and I hope they go with that name instead of Nasty Nick. Never liked that name. Evil Eddie is just a way better name.

    Is Family Movie Night supposed to be a Daily?  3 matches a day once you reach the highest tier you can accomplish. Definitely better odds of earning the Exclusives.

    For the new Types, I'd recommend adding Dead Ned to Spiky. Pretty sure the Iron Throne has a few blades on it.

    Confirmed. Shark Attack slows down the entire battle.  Just came upon him in Worm Wars. Android Samsung S9+

    Tony Luzzi per the patch notes:

    "In another exciting overhaul, ALL our events now have more battles and reduced qualifying thresholds at the lower tiers. And you can repeat some special limited-time event battles up to three times a day - so strap in and tell your loved ones you’ll see them at Thanksgiving (or if not then, New Years)!"

    Yessss! I am digging the Plot Twist! Solid increase in difficulty for 5(?) tiers with fantastic coinage? This game is absolutely popping. Thank you!
