MFL is rumbling and stumbling to the goal line!

Hi Everyone!  

There will be a new MFL build delivered on Steam this Thursday, Oct 5 and we want to share what’s been updated in this release... but before we do that want to let you know about a little tournament hosted by mine_is_broken, Kyote and a bunch of other awesome community members. 

MFL 12 player Single Elimination Tournament 

Friday, Oct 6th at 9:00pm EDT. Go here to sign up:

Now back to the Change list...

Fixed (reported by community):  

  • Consecutive bullshit penalties  
  • Player is fainting after he breaks a tackle  
  • Kill QB / Kill Referee don’t stop on Galaxy Chaos field 
  • Wrong mini-game VO if player dies because of land mine 
  • Kicker position on kickoff after penalty. Now he is always in the middle of the field
  • Dead players not having a tombstone 
  • The "Fake Kick Rollout" pass play doesn't bring up receiver icons 
  • Teams' ratings differ slightly between Play Now and Season/Playoffs 
  • Missing referee on a field 
  • PAT moving to the next quarter after half time, thus breaking kickoff 
  • Timeout can stop Kill QB / Kill Referee dirty trick 
  • Announcer says wrong line if defense calls an audible 


  • Improved position synchronization in online game. Should be noticeable if ping <= 70
  • Various framerate optimizations 
  • More game SFX 
  • Improved Crowd SFX (react more & louder in the playoffs) 
  • Buzz Saw / Spikes hazard delay – it doesn’t instantly pop-up 
  • Depth of field for smack talk cinematics 
  • Added collision to Mutant Worm - now he is dangerous 
  • Allow injured players be on a field if nobody else left, that means you no longer can’t forfeit because of injured players 
  • Added rock hazard 
  • Various tutorial / UI fixes and improvements 
  • Bench has new player categories 
  • Grim Bay Attackers Roster updated 
  • 20+ Backer names added 
  • Tweaks and polish on difficulty settings (playing on rough is a bit easier now)
  • Improvements to AI in final seconds of game (AI is smarter) 
  • Video Capture / Screen blood and numbers removed from options 

In Progress

  • Keyboard support 
  • Online mode improvements 
  • Less tutorial & tip messaging 
  • Leaderboards 
  • Onside Kick improvements 
  • More hazards and weather effects 
  • Team Tuning
  • Stat Tuning
  • Arena & Hazard polish
  • SFX Improvements

      Hi Ryan - shirts have started to ship. I'm getting about 20-30 out a week - problem is there are hundreds and hundreds of shirts and I've been a little busy with the game lately. Hope you understand what the priority is. Thanks for your patience.

      Asking again, when do the shirts ship out?
