Soz it's been awhile since the last version was out. Life got in my way but the next version of Powerbattles has finally arrived. If you want to skip the intro and just get to the downloading scroll to the bottom of the post.
Now to the good stuff...
What's new in this release?
In the classes department we have 6 new contenders, 3 on rebs and 3 on imps.
First up we have The Blademaster. He's a jedi who decided he could one-up the duelist. He does this by wielding not just a staff saber, but dual staff sabers. He also has a few stat bonuses to aid him. Next, the Hamma Slamma. Yes, it's Admiral Ackbar with a giant hammer. Some of you may have played with the dark wave hammer in your JA+ days. This is the dark wave hammer, with a few enhancements :p. I had much fun smashing up NPC lukes with him. And last but not least in the newcomer reb lineup, it's Pikachu. He shoots lightning, has speed, and is smaller than Mario. He also has confuse ray and cute sounds. Now on to imps...
First in the imp lineup, although not pictured, is the Concussold. What is the Concussold and why is he not pictured? He's not pictured because he's just a regular stormie model. But what he does is awesome. He has 1\1 HP\SP like the flea, is superrrrr fast(faster than the chuck norris class) and he carries only concussion grenades. He also has 10 lives, instead of the usual 2. He is guaranteed to cause mega lulz. Next up is Stormdemon, Destroyer of Worlds. He's a giant(same size as the fat man) black stormtrooper that glows eerily red(if you have dynamic glow on :P). While not the fastest runner in the world, he posses a deadly claw and spike for hands, and has destruction, grip, drain, mindtrick, 200 force, shoots flames and has various other abilities which you will discover to your dismay if you aren't playing him :p. A fun class indeed. Last in the expose is Home Run Harriet. She sports a Louisville Slugger baseball bat for a weapon. "But it's just a saber" you say. No it's not. It swings 2x faster than a light saber. When you hit someone with it they go flying into the wild blue yonder, just like a home run. I had fun smacking NPCs with that one too.
Well those are all the new classes. We also have new maps: Jedi Temple Duel, Tantive IV, Star Destroyer, Coruscant Chase, House of the Fallen, & UL's Powerbattle Map which was made just for this :p (Thanks UL) For the rest of the changes, you can look in the readme. Now, submit your bandwidth.
