Metal Factions is an evolving RTS game that started as yet another TA mod but since 2014 has been moving away from TA IP to a more original game with decent graphics and great gameplay.

Besides gameplay similarities with other TA-derived or Supreme Commander games, some of its major features are:
- FOUR factions with many dozens of unique units each: AVEN, GEAR, CLAW and SPHERE
- Commanders with several morph options to fit into different play styles and which can be easily revived
- Upgrades that improve players' units in different ways and allow players to optimize their strategies
- Its own AI, MFAI, with three difficulty levels. The "Brutal" mode should provide a challenge to even veteran RTS players!
- A dedicated 1v1 ladder

So what I’m going to try now is “micro news”, as in, I’m going to pick narrow subjects that are important, write a paragraph or whatever I need to to explain it, and call it a day. Perhaps if I do news this way, I can be persuaded to write news stuff more often.

today the springrts.com server was upgraded to ubuntu 16.04.

Uberserver, the buildbot master, the rapid repo had some problems after the upgrade which should be solved now.

as upstart was replaced with systemd the server needs to rebooted, too. The date for reboot is not set, but will be soon: this will lead to a short downtime which will be announced when its known.

and only 228 are open! ;-)

It took ~13 years to reach 6000 bug reports on our bug tracker, the first was in November 2005.

thanks to all bug reporters and bug fixers! :-)

Thanks to all players, contributors and developers who helped making Spring what it is and to those who continue pushing its limits in incredible new ways!

Happy birthday!

We'll hopefully have some big birthday party in a few hours when Zero-K is released on Steam! :-)

So spread the word so many people can participate!

13 years spring!
