Important news for PSC's Android Players...
« on: July 24, 2015, 01:53:21 PM »
Hello survivors!

UPDATE: Sept 9th at 3:43pm ET...
The new MDI version of PSC is available NOW! TAP HERE to download the new version from the Play Store!

Remember to secure your account in the +MORE menu under Account Settings so you can carry your character into the new app!

If you want the short form of this post, the TL;DR version is available at the bottom.

We have some interesting news for our android survivors: starting in August, Massive Damage will no longer be affliated with Mobage. While this was partly the reason for the Shadow Wars changes earlier this summer, it also means that the Android version of Please Stay Calm will be published and released by us! Yay!

So, what does that mean?
There'll be changes to your in-game currency, your login process, and you'll have to download a new PSC app to keep playing. BUT your account, your safehouse, your inventory, your friends list, your avatar - pretty much everything else - will all stay the same.

It's still the same PSC you know and love, just in an all new package.

What happens next?
1. The current version of PSC in the Play Store is the Mobage version. This will soon be made unavailable for download, likely in early August.
2. MDI will release a NEW VERSION of PSC as a completely new App. This will also be in early August. We are planning to have BOTH apps available for a very short time, to assist with the transition.
3. With the NEW MDI version of PSC, you'll no longer need to login to PSC with your Mobage username and password and you won't use Mobacoins to purchase Z Credits.

IMPORTANT: We will be shutting off all Mobacoin purchases in game, in advance of this switch. This will ensure no one accidentally buys Mobacoins that they can't use prior to the transition. We don't want some poor, unaware survivor getting stuck with a mountain of Mobacoins. Plan accordingly, survivors.

Wait! What about my Mobacoins?!
They'll still be attached to your Mobage account and can be used on any Mobage game. If you want to use those Mobacoins for PSC, you'll need to spend them now, in the current version of PSC. Mobacoins cannot be used in the new version of PSC.

If you have Z Credits in your PSC account now, THEY ARE YOURS. They're not going anywhere and they'll still be available, in your account, in the NEW version of PSC. It's only the Mobacoins that need to be spent before the transition.

Ok, got it. So what do I need to do before the new PSC app hits?
Not much, really. Make sure that you've secured your PSC account in the +MORE Menu and that you know your PSC username, email address, and password. Again, once you download the new version of PSC, you'll use those details to login and NOT your Mobage name and password.

You're gonna keep us up to date and well informed on all this change stuff, right?
Absolutely! As the transition approaches, we'll have newsfeed posts, broadcasts, chat posts, smoke signals, all kinds of communication about this change. Please help your fellow survivors as well: let your safehouse mates and all your PSC friends know about this post and these upcoming changes!

If you have any questions, let us know! You can post to this discussion thread in the forums, or contact us in-game from the help menu.

Happy hunting, survivors. :)

THE TL;DR VERSION
Hey, Android players! There will be a new version of PSC soon, probably in early August.
1. Make sure you secure your PSC account and you know your PSC (not Mobage) login details: do it now!
2. Spend your Mobacoins now, especially if you want to use them for Z Credits!
3. Watch the newsfeed/Play Store for a NEW version of PSC in August!
4. Download the new version, login with your PSC credentials, keep killing zombies, just like always!

UPDATE: Survivors, we anticipate that the option to purchase Mobacoins will be removed in game THIS FRIDAY, JULY 31ST. Once Mobage disconnects the In-App Purchase function, you'll still be able to spend the Mobacoins in your account, but you will not be able to purchase additional mobacoins.

In-App Purchases will return with the NEW PSC app (sans Mobage) that should be available in the next week or two. Thanks again, survivors and happy hunting.

UPDATE: We think we're in the home stretch, survivors! We appreciate your patience and we certainly hope this new version will be worth the wait.

Remember: you need to secure your PSC account in the +MORE Menu and make sure you know your PSC username, email address, and password in preparation for these changes.
