Hello everyone,

We have a maintenance schedule as following.
Maintenance Schedule:
March 28 00:00 PST – March 28 03:00 PST

Scheduled Task
- Auto match now searches for smaller match if there are not enough players in the match queue
Match queue sometimes took a long time when there are not many players playing at the moment.
Auto match can now get you into smaller matches such as 1vs1 or 2vs 2 instead of the full 4vs4 match.
* Team Deathmatch winning score for 1vs1 is 100 and for 2vs2 is 200.
* Time Assault mode is not included for this feature. You still need 4vs4 for TA mode.

- Your chat channel is now selected based on your location (country) by default.

The game servers will be closed during the maintenance.
We’re sorry about the down-time and will do our best to reopen the game servers as soon as possible.

Hello, I am Venister, CEO of MAIET.

I’d like to thank all of you who support our game despite that there is a lot that the game lacks. Although it has not been a smooth sail till now, it has been a full month since the launching of Early Access of GunZ 2. Today, I would like to share some insights of the status quo of GunZ 2 service.

First, the size of our development team is quite small. They’ve been working really hard developing the game, and they’re trying even harder trying to make GunZ 2 a better game. Although the team of 25 staff has been working day and night trying to cover as much as they could, there is still a lot that the game needs improvement on. I feel deeply sorry that the outcome is not being made as fast as all of us wants, but I can assure you that we will keep making improvements on GunZ 2 even though it may be slow.

As we launched GunZ 2 on Steam, we have been facing countless problems which we have never come across before. Publishing and operating a commercial service is something that we have never experienced since the company was founded. We were lost at first and went through lots of unexpected issues, but we still think the whole journey has been a very exciting experience. The fact that we are dealing with our fans face-to-face without a publisher in the middle is also very encouraging as well.

Let me talk a little bit about some of the issues that many of you are discussing on forums for the time being.

1. Balancing


Balancing issue is not something that can or should be changed just because someone complains, ‘this character is seriously over-powered.’ Everyone can have a different opinion on balancing, so it requires data analysis. We plan on publishing statistics data regarding character balance, so let us discuss together then.

2. Custom Game Mode


Like our staff have stated before, Custom Game is already available in the game, but it is only disabled for now. We disabled it because we want our players get used to auto-matching game first. Before we open Custom Game, we will fix problems of auto-match system such as match queue taking too long where there are a small number of players on the queue. We also think custom games can be abused for many ill purposes. Hence, there custom game rewards will be quite small even when it’s open. We only want to open it for the community.

3. Event


The MVP events we recently held were small in many aspects and scale. Since it was the first event content we tried, it’s been a bug feast and it still needs a lot to be worked on. We are aware of that win count didn’t get registered properly for some players due to a bug, but it’s very hard to make it up for these players currently. We are also aware of that hack users and their friends are abusing the system. These current issues will be addressed soon. We will resolve the problems as soon as possible and make it up to everyone with better events. Once the current issues are resolved, we will enhance the event contents with more variety and better rewards.

Lastly, let’s talk about k-style for a little bit.

Like we have mentioned a number of times already, there is nothing to reconsider about k-style. We do not intend to reproduce it just like that of GunZ 1. However, like some of you may have already found out, there is a feature that triggers animation/motion cancelation for each character. For instance, if you swap your weapon to a ranged weapon right after flipping an enemy with melee weapon, the second action cancels flip motion and lets you fire your ranged weapon right away. It is not easy to come up with a general rule for these, and it requires a lot of manual labor to balance them out. We might even end up having to change animation/motion rules while we try to keep each of them under control. However, if we find players’ suggestion interesting and free from any balance issue, we will definitely implement it in the game. Most important thing here is that all in-game motions should be well balanced among all character classes, and we will fix it if the balance is broken.

Once again, I’d like to thank you all how enjoy and support our game. I also hope you all get an item that you want with the Purified Crystals that we will give out for celebrating 1 month of game service. Thank you all.

- Purified Crystals will be available after the maintenence.
- Celebrating Gift: 10x Purified Crystals, 10x Purified Ore

New Game Mode: Gladiator


Today I'd like to announce a new upcoming game feature. We know that many players want to come back of Gladiator game mode for GunZ 2: The Second Duel.

For this game mode, the new game map will be also introduced - Colosseum. The map is much simliar to the old 'Battle Arena', but 'Colosseum' is smaller in size and there are some hazardous gimmicks instead.

Please note that development of these new features is still in progress. We will start testing them within the next few days, then we will release the game mode & map soon.


New Character


Needless to say, we are currently developing a new character class. But we can't share the details just yet, 'HE' will use a brand new type of melee weapon and new strategic tactics along with it. - Also he will have a new type of ranged weapon. :)

I look forward to introducing the new character in April.

Thank you so much.
