Hi! 

I have entered the game after the update once, and did a battle event, so I think the game is okay for me after the update (thankfully)! 

I have yet to enter TRR, and do not have the time to do so today. When I saw the news about the update, it said: "Improvements under the hood for Thunder Run Racing" or something along those lines. I don't know if that means they already have added the updates to TRR, or not. 

If they have, what have they added? I've recently started to get into racing a lot, and I want to know in case something's changed drastically. (Probably not, but just to be sure xD) 

Thank you guys! :D

I'd like to stop you right here to mention something. A few weeks back, I met a very amazing friend here on the forums. Her name is TillyO5, or xOTillyOx in-game. I'd like to give her some special recognition for being my best friend on SoD, and in real-life too. <3 :D This is for you, Tilly! 

 

 

This is for that brave warrior I'm proud to call my friend. She's strong, stands up for what she believes in, kind, generous, and an incredible friend. I consider myself lucky to have met Tilly on the forum a few weeks back. Honestly, right now, I don't know what I would do without her. Thank you, Tilly, for always being there for me. I hope I will live up to be the incredible friend you are, and always be there for you! <3 :D

 

These are a few of my other amazing forum & SoD buddies! (The ones in orange are both SoD buddies & forum friends.)

Lady fighter - such a kind, caring, and over all incredible friend <3, HPowers - leader of Isle of Gazoo and a really calm and kind player :) LaGuardianaDeNadders - another fellow Spanish-speaking player with a very fun personality ;D

The layout/UI has a new look and you get penalized if you leave the racing lobby, similar to chat ban. The new look is okay but there's the only positive to the TRR update.

Thanks for the reply, Kasane!

Ooh, I can't wait to check out the new layout! :)
And oh no... I'm constantly in and out of chat bans (God darn chat won't accept normal smiley faces XD). I don't need another reason to be "banned" from anything else.
Thanks for the reply, Kasane! :)

Expanding on what Kasane said, you get penalized if you leave the 25 second countdown lobby by hitting the back arrow to go back to the main lobby. Aurorael told me that she was playing around with it and the first time you have to wait 3 minutes before you can join another race, the second time is a 5 minute wait, and the third time is a 10 minute wait. I'm not sure past that because that's all she told me. So basically you want to avoid hitting the back arrow and going back to the main lobby once you're in the 25 second countdown lobby or otherwise you'll get a "race ban"(that's the name I've given it XD) and have to wait a certain amount of time before you can race again.

Looking for a clan? Check out the Isle of Gazoo Clan Recruitment thread to see if Isle of Gazoo is right for you. If you're interested in joining, let me know even if all the spots in the clan are full. I might be able to find a spot for you. If you put in a join request in game and you don't reply on the Recruitment thread, if you could please put a brief message stating you've seen the Recruitment thread on the forum instead of the standard "Hi. Please let me join your clan." that would be greatly appreciated. :)

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

However, when I make a mistake I do my best to learn from it and then do my best not to repeat it. I apologize when neccessary and accept correction where it's needed. I happily talk about my religion and beliefs with others but I don't force it on them. If they aren't interested or tell me they don't want to talk about it, I respect that.

For more information on Jehovah's Witnesses, for answers to your Bible-based questions, or for information on a varity of topics, some of which  include: animals, countries, how to deal with bullies, how to have a happy family life, how to make real friends, and depression, please visit jw.org.

23 minutes?!?! Wow! That's a long time for innocent people to be banned from racing. At least that's as high as it goes I suppose. You can get 7 day chat bans. I'd cry if I got a 7 day racing ban. lol.
