That's what i thought. Oh wait... You were there, weren't you?

A Blaze reskin sounds cool. She could be a speed type too since she plays almost like Sonic in Rush. But I've never played 06 though. Or watched a full playthrough. 

Blaze is more or less Sonic from an alternate dimension, but in 06 she's from the future, so she'd definitely be a speed type. Has anyone also noticed that it's REALLY hard to unlock characters in the game? I mean, I only unlocked Tails today because the game gave him to me because of Chapter 11-1 being tailored for Flight characters. But what about Amy? I STILL haven't figured out how to unlock her. And I mean Amy herself, not Gothic Amy or Amitie Amy.

I guess...? I'm sorry, I don't exactly know what you mean by "You were there, weren't you?" If you're referring to that discussion about Cream not too long ago then yes, I was there. I was a bit too active in that discussion -_-

Indeed, there needs to be at least a Speed Type "reskin" of Blaze, maybe as a Team Future character (which would render Mephiles a Power Type, assuming he is a Team Future character) or maybe have her be a "Team Sol" character. I honestly prefer the latter idea because I'd rather we all forget the whole "Blaze is from the future" clusterfuck that the already-full-of-clusterfuck Sonic 06 introduced. She started off being from the Sol Dimension and it ought to stay firmly as her place of origin. That and, as slim as the chance is, it would allow Marine to join Runners since she too is from the Sol Dimension.

Yeah, the game intentionally makes unlocking the characters, as well as partners, hard as sin so you would spend tons of money getting them. It's a pretty big reason why this game is more-or-less hated right now (the other being numerous bugs/glitches). Tails and Knuckles are the exception so you could have a Fly and Power character for the respective stages. As for Amy, she used to be unlocked by inviting 10 friends on Facebook to play the game but now you can simply buy her from the store (with Gothic Amy being the "Facebook prize" instead). Unfortunately, the price to purchase Amy is not cheap last time I checked.

So out of curiosity I decided to look at the list of teams that Runners currently has. (The S, F and P stand for Speed, Fly, Power for those out of the loop.) Not counting seasonal themes and costumes.

Team Sonic: Sonic (S), Tails (F), Knuckles (P)

Team Rose : Amy (S), ??? (F), Blaze (P)

Team Chaotix: Espio (S), Charmy (F), Vector (P)

Team Dark: Shadow (S), Rouge (F), ??? (P)

Team Easy: Silver (S), Cream (F), Big (P)

Team Mech: Metal (S), ??? (F), Omega (P)

Team Wild: Sticks (S), Tikal (F), Werehog (P)

Team Future: ??? (S), ESP Silver (F), ??? (P)

Unknown: Mephiles

So at the moment we are currently missing 2 flying types, 2 power types and one speed type. So who do think could fit in the teams missing? Keep in mind you could easily reskin certain characters to fit certain roles i.e ESP Silver, assuming we even get any more new characters.

I'll piggyback with this one.

Rose/Fly: I support Cream & Cheese, but there's something telling me that they won't do that. They're gonna do something crazy like Marine being the Fly character because she has mysterious powers (anyone remember that from the Rush series?).

Dark/Power: Gemerl maybe?

Mech/Fly: If they're bringing back dead characters, Gamma.

Future: Mephiles for Speed, "Pyro Blaze" for Power. Just cause.

I'm still waiting for Team Babylon.

So does anyone know what type ol Charlie Mephi* is and what team he's a part of? I just wanna update my team list.

*Charlie Mephi is my pet nickname for Mephlies the dark. 

No one knows, but I'm guessing future/power, if they ever bring another version of blaze, she would be speed (because people didn't like her being power) and future team, so that leaves power to mephiles.

Is mephiles out? I'm honestly contemplating redownloading the game from my history just for him to see how much better this game makes 06 characters lol

Not yet, I'm guessing next month like all the other characters since 2.0.0 (except Xmas)

Did anybody notice that goth amy is missing from the character select screen?

did it merge with the new amy?

Is she really gone? It could be they're no longer supporting the facebook friend thing? If they really aren't it's a good sign they're wrapping up service, or else they'd still want more people to join the game.

I want the game to move offline if they do end up service, that way people can play still. I use the word "good" to refer to the indication, not that it's a good thing. (If they have it's killed most player's RSR income strategies, and it's unfair on those working hard to legitimately get 10 friends)

Random event appeared. Not even the Sonic Runners Twitter said something about it, the only thing we got is the data update from yesterday.

Pretty much the same event as the one we got for Christmas, but it's a daytime stage now and we can collect snowflakes instead of presents. Nothing else changed. 

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hQjeu4pLLA

After all I don't think SEGA cares about this game that much anymore.

The Special Stage in Timed Mode is so much more enjoyable than it was for Christmas, if only because I have a limit broken character now and can listen to the amazing soundtrack from beginning to end. However, I don't understand why they can't just add a Buddy as an extra ranking reward to give this event at least some significance.

At least we know that all the special stages will be in Timed Mode now...but I do wonder what they are gonna do with Merlina if she won't be a reward when the Easter event returns next month.

I played this game once again to find that somehow Sega has proven they can make their terrible game much worse. The timed mode seems rigged with clocks floating away from you when then you go jump at it. However apparently I do very good at timed mode. The point is that I personally find this to be the worst Sonic game I ever played. It went from revolutionary, ground breaking, new way of doing mobile gaming during before worldwide release to the one of the worst Sonic games ever all because of greed. This game had lots of fun and it is now lots of rigging the game. In fact the buddies or companions as they used to be called are all completely useless and make no significant difference. That my opinion of it than.

Probably to further encourage paying for unlockables instead. You want your stuff for free, you're gonna damn well play for it.

If I remember correctly you can buy Amy by unlocking 200 red star rings. I couldn't resist using my first 150 to buy Big however.

Two weeks ago, I was about to revisit Runners but then had a long thought of how am I going to enjoy this again.

This is why I was so pissed off months ago. It had the potential to be one of the best mobile games out there, but the online DRM kinda what stopped it from achieving so. Then as months go by, more and more questionable decisions made by Sega Networks that were added to the game which made the game worse. On top of that, unavoidable bugs like the game freeze after watching an ad that gives you a free revive. 

Personally, version 2.0 killed what's left of Sonic Runners. For goodness sake, Amitie-Style Amy the character I used the most became downright useless after that update! The update doesn't benefit me or others in any way what so ever! 

I just wish they hit the reset button that puts the game pre-worldwide release state. It's a real shame it had come to this.

I only started playing after 2.0.0 and...I'm finding the game pretty fun to be honest? The only caveat is that it can't take the lock screen for jack so you have to make sure it doesn't stay idle for too long. 

It's nice for the gameplay. It's mostly the laggy menus, buggyness, and how unstable it is. No two runs are the same, sometimes characters trip on nothing, sometimes you go flying if you land on a platform incorrectly, it's difficult to get red rings without paying up, and sometimes free revives don't work. Not to mention the mass nerfs that happened after the 2.0.0 patch. If you got into it after 2.0.0 then I don't think anyone would see a problem with the game unless they play it for a long period of time, if at all. Because it is tolerable, and it's actually really enjoyable if you play it in bursts and don't actually try and get all the buddies or whatever.

I was only in it until I got the Chaotix members (before they were purchasable), and now I can play the game freely without a care in the world. I guess the point is the game can be more frustrating than it needs to be at times.

Hmm, that makes sense, and my phone is unstable enough as is for me to not notice. :P

But yeah, my attitude was just to get Vector and Espio (getting 400 Red Rings was relatively easy), be given Silver and ESP Silver for free (seriously, didn't even win them off the roulette, they were just handed to me) and then blast through lackadaisy style.
