The Rotation Release Cycle has officially begun today with the arrival of SSF2 Beta v1.2.1! From this point forward this year, expect content updates every two months! To play this latest version, head over to our SSF2 page now:
As for what we have in store for you this release, here’s what you’re in for:
We’re still working on a few more final smashes, so expect those in the May patch.
Also in case you missed it, we released a video earlier this week for a preview of everything in action. Check it out below!
And last but not least, have you heard of our new mailing list called MG Insiders? All subscribers were able to play v1.2.1 early yesterday by being signed up. Want to grab the May SSF2 update early? Then head on over to our MG Insiders page to subscribe! See the link below for more details:
You may have already noticed the banner on the forums today stating that the forums will be closed on April 30th. Sadly the news is true (and no, it’s unrelated to coronavirus). Unfortunately the software that the forums run on is no longer healthily maintained, and it hasn’t been for some time. In the interest of user safety and reducing the amount of maintenance required to keep them online, the executive decision has been made that it’s time to say goodbye to the beloved MG forums at the end of April. As much as it pains us to have to do this, activity on the forums was already at an all-time low with the evolution of other social media platforms like Discord, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc. We encourage you to like/follow/subscribe to MG on our other social platforms in order to keep up with the community.
Rest assured, as far as everything else is concerned it will be business as usual at McLeodGaming moving forward!
And don’t forget that we have an official Discord:
We plan to convert all the forum content into a read-only format for preservation purposes. This may take some time so it may not be available immediately after closing, but in the interim the forums will be put into maintenance mode until the conversion is completed. (Who knows, while we’re at it maybe we’ll also revive a read-only archive of the original MG forum archives for nostalgia?)
Not in the immediate future, but we’ll see. The forums were not nearly as heavily used as our other social accounts, so replacing them may not be worth the time and effort to manage them. However as MG continues to grow and our needs change, there may be other ways to connect with fellow MG fans introduced some day.
In the meantime please savor these last few weeks of forum activity. The MG Forums had a truly good run (12 years to be exact, nearly 15 if you count the OG forums!), so let’s take this time to celebrate their legacy!
The date has been set! The next SSF2 Beta update will be arriving on March 19th to MG Insiders subscribers, and to the general public on March 20th. This will mark the beginning of SSF2’s “Rotation Release Cycle”, where we’ll be releasing updates every two months through the end of the year! The previous release was only a few weeks ago so this next update will be on the lighter side in terms of content, but you can expect more significant changes in the future as this new release cycle sinks in.
Wanna be part of the early crew? Sign up for MG Insiders today to get in before the rest of the crowd for a limited time, in addition to receiving news about other MG happenings in the future:
Also note that SSF2’s online mode will only be accessible to the latest patch once its released, so subscribe today if you want to continue playing online uninterrupted!
Hotfix patch v188.8.131.52 has been released for SSF2 Beta! See below for the list of core changes:
