  1. QONQR Comic

    The first comic pages have been released today. You can see them here: http://portal.qonqr.com/Comic/Index?faction=faceless The Faceless were the first faction to unlock a page, and the first reward for each faction will be two pages. That's why you see two published pages. Each subsequent reward will be one page. I know Legion has unlocked their first reward as well, we hope to have those ready soon. Our hope is that in the future, we will be able to publish pages as soon as each faction unlocks them. Each faction has their own 22-page issue to start with, but the stories intertwine and will cross-over even more as we go forward. We hope to reveal backstory, lore, and new game functionality with these pages, but also tell a good story. Our artist is the amazingly talented Joey Vazquez. I met with him about a month ago, and I couldn't have asked for a friendlier collaborator. We're really proud of the way these comics are shaping up. We hope you enjoy them!
  2. Hey everyone! As many of you know, we've been planning a Kickstarter Project for the QONQR Command Center for quite a while. It went live today! You can see all the details here: http://kck.st/QONQRKS What is the QONQR Command Center? It's a new interface for larger screens (iPad initially, with web and other tablets to follow). Here are some of the features it will have: Bigger and Better Maps. Larger displays giving you a better view of the battles around you, centered around an Interactive-Map of the world. Strategic Locations. Capturing locations like airports and power-plants provide strategic benefit for you and your faction. Social Integration. Share your conquests with your social networks. Anticipate your enemies' next move. Dissect the details of zone and player activities. Form Alliances. Recruit your facebook friends to join the battle. Build a Battle Plan. Coordinate your next move with your friends. If you think this sounds good, we've got some great rewards (including shirts, hoodies, lots of Power Cubes, and a ton of other great stuff) for backers! Please help us spread the word by spreading the word! Thank you all so much!

  4. Server Update 11/2

    Lots of great ideas here. Thanks everyone for the thoughtful and passionate feedback. Our goal has always been to make this a map-driven game and the new maps are a step in that direction. We eventually want to get to the point where you can do the majority of your daily tasks without ever leaving the map. Imagine this: you click on a zone and instead of leaving to the launch screen, all the deployment options for that zone pop up around it. You select your formations and deploy without ever leaving the focus of that zone. Then maybe you switch to an alternate map view which only shows your bases, or just shows zones you have saved to your Watchlist ("Zones of Interest" as LordStefo called it). There are even more features planned here that we aren't quite ready to discuss, but this recent map update set the stage for a much more streamlined interface. I LOVE the idea of a "Zone Lock", Kirra87. I'm adding that to our interface design roadmap immediately. "Go To Zone" from links in messages is already on our roadmap. I completely understand what you're saying about the additional click to open a zone after you click through from your bases screen. As I explained above, that's a temporary issue while we are in this transitional map phase. Thanks for your patience with this. The zoom reset when returning from a launch is a bug. We'll have that fixed very soon. (Believe me, it irritates me too...) A link to the comics from in-game will probably be a part of an integrated connection to the portal. We're hoping to get a single-signon link to the portal soon. Again, thanks for the awesome constructive feedback everyone. We truly appreciate it!
  5. Swarm Necklace 3D printed.

    This is so awesome! Make sure you upload your cosplay photos too!
  6. QONQR Comic

    Awesome info, ArcSyn! Thank you!
  7. QONQR Comic

    As an obsessive Comixology user, I think that would be incredibly cool too. I'm not sure how that happens though. I'll have to look into it.
  8. QONQR Comic

    Thanks everyone! Glad you like them! We do hope to release these in print if everything works out. One day Agent Sunday, Kimyo, and Prometheus might grace the shelves of your local comic shop! Wouldn't that be cool?
  9. QONQR Story Contest!

    Hey everyone! We're excited to kick off a story contest here on the Forums. We've got some great prizes and we think this should be a lot of fun. Here are the details: Write a story about you and your Faction Leader and win awesome prizes! We want you to come up with a totally awesome (but brief) story about an interaction between you and your Faction Leader. Maybe it's when your faction leader first recruited you, maybe it's the story of a particularly daring raid you were on together, or perhaps a memorably funny exchange you had about those losers in the other factions. Whatever the case, submit your best stories to the forums before 10pm Central Time, August 31st, 2012. Team QONQR will pick our favorite three stories and award the following prizes: 1st Place: Your story and you become a part of the QONQR Canon! You will become one of your faction leader's right-hand men/women and depictions of you will show up in future storylines. 100 Power Cubes A QONQR T-shirt 2nd Place: 50 Power Cubes A QONQR T-shirt 3rd Place: 25 Power Cubes A QONQR T-shirt RULES AND ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Stories must be posted to the Fan Fiction Forum and tagged with the StoryContest tag The Deadline for this contest is 10pm Central Time, August 31st, 2012. Stories submitted after that time will not be considered for the contest. Try to keep stories under 500 words. Longer stories will not be disqualified, but shorter is better. Story format is open, as long as it can be posted to the QONQR Forums. Prose, poetry, screenplays, comics, etc. are all eligible. Multiple submissions are permitted, but a single person cannot win more than one of the prizes. By submitting these stories, you give QONQR LLC the right to use them for any purpose. (That's right - you might wind up in a QONQR storyline even if you don't take first place!) Story contents cannot be offensive. Keep it PG-13 folks. We've got kids who play. In the event where Team QONQR cannot decide between two stories, the award will go to the entry with the most "likes". So get your friends to log in and like your post! Have fun everyone! We can't wait to read your stories!
  10. The update for the iOS is now available!

    Thanks Supertrampoline! You should have push notifications available to you as well. (That has been a strategic advantage for Windows Phone players for a while.)
  11. Tennessee Legion

    Welcome to the battle, WildTurk!
  12. Swarming in the Midwest

    Welcome TK421 (why aren't you at your post? ). Great to see another Swarm player! I'll get you access to the Swarm forum right away.

    Welcome F21! Glad you like our game!
  15. McPwn here.

    Welcome McPwn. Thanks for self-policing on the multi-scoping.
  16. WredXIII//Undisclosed_Location//NC-SC-GA-FL

    Welcome to the forums, WredXIII. It's nice to see another one of our "old timers" join the conversation!
  17. Elbow Rubbings in Minneapolis

    Welcome nware. I'm glad to have you in the MN area! We need more Swarm operatives fighting the good fight!
  18. bases

    Hi tommo. This is a topic probably best suited for a different forum, but since it's here I'll quickly respond: Expanded functionality and tech trees for bases is a feature we have had on the board for a long time, and something we plan to get to soon. For now though, your bases are remote harvesters. Simple devices used to extract resources from an area on behalf of your faction. Hope that helps. Thanks for playing!
  19. Ranks

    iPhone version 1.6 which includes Ranks, Medals, and Notifications is currently in review and will hopefully be available this week. NWare - QONQR won't be in the iPad iOS 6.0 app store until we release an HD version, but you should still be able to install it via a direct search link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/qonqr/id499043728?mt=8 Let me know if that doesn't work for you.
