An Update to Premium Membership Benefits

Lately we’ve made many updates to Premium Memberships. Just last September, we created the Monthly Premium Membership which we thought would be useful to those who only need Premium abilities at certain times of the year. Two months later, we added the ability for Premium users to use filtered blasts. Last month, we experimented with our first ZEE-Dayz exclusively for Premium Members.

This update brings more improvements to the Premium Membership. To make sure you’re adequately informed, we’ve written this blog post so that you will know of the changes in advance.

The changes described below will be effective as of 12:00 MHQ on Monday, May 2nd.

Out the Door

At the time stated above, the Munzee app will no longer support the Multi-User Login (MUL) feature. Our team has gone back and forth on this feature for quite some time, so we feel we owe our players some transparency as to how we came to this decision.

When the game was first introduced almost 11 years ago, the MUL was created for families who played together and only owned 1 device. Over the years devices for multiple family members have become more common, and although we understand the convenience the MUL has been more trouble than we would like.

Our evaluation of the MUL went something like this:

Pros Cons
  • Allow families with multiple Munzee players to easily play on one device
  • Quick access for another player if battery dies or signal is lost
  • Most families with multiple Munzee players are now able to provide a device for each player
  • Players who create fake accounts take advantage of this feature to quickly accumulate points or meet requirements for Clan Wars, badges, etc.
  • Development time is increased as new app features must distinguish between the active account and any other logged-in accounts
  • Testing time is also increased as we must make sure that all app features work even as we quickly switch between 3 different accounts
  • The ability to quickly switch between accounts is quite rare among apps — a unique feature rather than one that is standard

Knowing that the original purpose of the MUL has been outgrown, along with all the other cons listed above, we have decided to remove the MUL from the app.

In light of this change, we encourage players to carry external batteries to keep their main device charged and/or bring extra devices in case issues come up so that they can switch and continue playing — things which many of you are already in the habit of doing.

Otherwise, it just takes a few extra steps to log out and then log in to another account the old-fashioned way.

In Comes More

We understand some will be upset by the decision to remove MUL, but we want to continue to offer a positive Premium Membership experience. So we’re excited to announce that we are in the process of testing out 2 NEW additional features we think all Premium Members will enjoy. Please understand that these new features are a trial/test and we want to gather feedback from players to make sure this is an appropriate addition to the game.

+5 Additional Filter Preset slots +1 Increased Magnet Effectiveness
  • This will bring the total to 10 custom filter presets!
  • Standard munzees will now attract 4 bouncers
  • Landing Pad Destinations will now attract 7 bouncers

We’re always looking to bring more value to Premium Memberships as they help keep our app running. These updates are just the beginning — we’ve got more in the works, so keep an eye out for future announcements!

Munzee on!

A New Christmas Combat Special So Staff Can Play Too!

As we planned out each Christmas Combatant, we started to feel a little jealous — where’s our toy? So we hope you don’t mind us putting together the humble 31F for us to wind up and unleash out into the world!

31F Details

The 31F is the first temporary Team Owned Bouncer (tTOB)! It has been deployed on behalf of each Freeze Tag staff member’s account as of 12:00 MHQ time!

Points

  • Capture: 500
  • CapOn: 300

You can find these diligent droids bouncing to the following landing pads every 4 hours or when captured:

31F will be attracted to both Physical and Virtual Munzee Magnets, but it is NOT blastable. You can find it by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters. You can access a complete list of FT team accounts at the end of the blog.

31F Capture Badges

There will be 1 badge for capturing a 31F. Since there’s only the 1 badge in this line, we want to keep it a secret for now. Hopefully it shouldn’t be too tough for you to get!

There is also a line of Christmas Combat Capture badges that you can earn for 31F, GingerMech Man, Cyborg Santa, Cybersaurus Rex, and any other future Christmas Combat captures! As a refresher, the first in this line will appear as follows:

Personal Tags

In addition to the Cyborg Santa and Cybersaurus Rex tags, we’ve got new tags for the GingerMech Man and 31F in the store! You can shop them HERE!

We hope these Christmas Combat specials add a dash of holiday cheer to your map!

New App Update and An Attractive Magnet Weekend Celebration!

We’re excited to announce that the latest Munzee update is officially live! The newest over-the-air update streamlines Munzee Magnet activation, and includes a number of new Deploy Modes for the different layers of the map!

You can find more details regarding the updates below, but first some more fun news! In celebration of the Magnet update we’re hosting a Magnet Weekend for everyone around the world!

Magnet Weekend Celebration

Starting at 00:01 MHQ on Saturday July 20, 2019 all physical and virtual Munzee Magnets will attract up to five bouncing munzees for 2 hours! This celebration will end Sunday July 21, 2019 at 23:59 MHQ. This means your Magnets are even more powerful just in time for 8zees Birthday events for the weekend, including our California Birthday Bash! To sweeten the pot all Premium Munzee members will also be awarded one free physical Munzee Magnet on Saturday as well! So if you’re not Premium hurry and join before 00:01 MHQ tomorrow!

We also have a special deal on Magnets in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Although players are limited to 10 magnets of each type every 10 days, you can now purchase physical and virtual Magnet 5 Packs for a limited amount of time! From now until Monday, July 22 at 10:00 MHQ five packs of Magnets are available for $4.50. There is a limit of 2 of each Magnet pack per customer, which means you can get an additional 10 of each Magnet type for this weekend, even if you’ve already purchased your ten for this time frame!

Munzee Magnet Update

It’s now easier than ever to Magnetize Munzees in the app! Simply go to the Details page for the Greenie or Virtual you want to Magnetize and you’ll see a bright red “Magnetize” button. This button will only show on munzees that can be Magnetized, so no more guessing and checking! When you go to Magnetize a munzee you’ll also be able to see how many Magnets you have in stock from a pop-up confirmation message.

Magnetizing munzees is even easier!

Magnetizing munzees is even easier!

You can learn about how to Magnetize munzees on the Munzee Help Guide, as well as by watching the video below!

Deploy Layers & Filters Update

Following the Munzee Map Split last month, we’re excited to announce that additional filters have been added to separate the different deploy layers in the game. This makes it much easier to tell where you can deploy certain types of munzees!

Each layer will use different colored proximity circles so you can easily tell which types are which:

  • Deploy All Types Mode – all colors, all types
  • Physical Deploy Mode – original red color
  • Virtual Deploy Mode – blue color
  • Flat Deploy Mode – green color
  • Temporary Virtual Deploy Mode – yellow color
  • Event Deploy Mode – pink color (only visible on event accounts

You can access these different deploy modes from the Filters section of the app. To help with all of these different types of munzees we have also given Premium members two additional custom preset filters, for a total of five.

Different map layers are distinguished by different color deploy circles!

We hope these latest updates help make your gameplay experience even easier! Be sure to take advantage of the Magnet Weekend Celebration to help you get Magic 8 Balls, Flat Shuttles, 8 Mates and more. We have lots of other great updates in the works so be sure to stay tuned.

Munzee on!

Introducing the White Ghost Pouch Creature Munzee!

If you’re in need of a sizable boost in points, we have just the munzee for you. Don’t be scared, Hadavale is here to help!

We’ll be launching our newest Pouch Creature, the white ghost Hadavale, at 15:00 MHQ on January 30th. Hadavale is a Team Owned Bouncer (TOB) so it will be deployed on staff accounts, similar to AlternaMyths such as the Fairy Godmother. It will be available (visible) to ALL players on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of each month. Hadavale will be available (visible) ALL days of the month for Premium members only. Not a premium member yet? You can purchase a Premium Membership in the Freeze Tag Online Store HERE.

Hadavale:

Hadavale will appear in both physical and virtual forms since it will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees every 6 hours or when captured. Since Hadavale is deployed by staff members, this munzee will be extremely rare. You can help locate this ghoul by choosing the “expiring specials” and “pouch creatures” filters.

Physical Landing Pads

Virtual Landing Pads

As Munzee followers know, Pouch Creatures are based on items from our sister app WallaBee. While similar to the Mythological Munzees, our Pouch Creatures have special attributes that are entirely their own. And this White Ghost is especially advantageous.

When Hadavale is captured, players will receive a Physical Deploy Booster. When this booster is activated players will receive double points on all Physical Deploys for the next 120 minutes. This is for ALL types of physical munzees, so Hadavale is quite the munzee to capture.

Positive Charges will stack on multi-point days. For example if you capture a Hadavale on a 3x point day, you would get 6x the normal points when you deploy. Since it has so much to offer, Hadavale will NOT be attracted to Munzee Magnets.

Points 

Capture: 50
Deploy: 50
CapOn: 50
CapOn Host: 50

Additionally, there will be three badges to earn based on unique captures. Here is the first in the line.

To celebrate the newest Pouch Creature we will be adding more of Tuli, Vesi, and Muru to the online store, as well as Fancy Flat Robs and a handful of Mythological Munzees! They’ll be for sale at 12:15 MHQ tomorrow (1/31) but they won’t be around forever, so if you haven’t had a chance to deploy one, now is your chance! These munzees will all be added to the Player Owned Bouncer (POB) Collection tomorrow. You can find that collection HERE!

Pouch Creatures are part of a new era of munzees. Make sure to capture these rare munzees before they bounce away! And be sure to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to let us know when you find Hadavale. Good luck, and Munzee on!

International “Thank You” Day Specials!

Rob realized writing individual “Thank You” notes to everyone wasn’t exactly feasible, so we decided to go in a different direction. In celebration of International Thank You Day, we’re proud to announce we’re celebrating in the best way possible: By sending out “Thank You” cards! Over the next few days you’ll be able to capture “Thank You” note specials from Louise, Rob and Matt.

“Thank You” cards from Louise, Matt and Rob!

The International Thank You Day specials will go live on the map at 00:01 Thursday January 11th and last through 23:59 on Sunday January 14th. There will be 1,000 of each of the icons (3,000 in total) bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap any of these icons, you will earn 18 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 11 points.

We know what you’re thinking: What good is a “Thank You” card if you can’t read what’s inside? Well when you capture one of the icons you’ll also earn the badge for that “Thank you” note and get to see what the cards says. Will you be able to capture all three?

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line, so be sure to cap as many as you can! You can capture these specials on your own munzees and they will all be attracted to Magnets.

Thank you once again to our awesome community of players! We couldn’t do all of this without you and we’re so thankful to have you as a part of our game. Now get out and Munzee on, because #TheTimeIsNow!

Christmas 2017 Special

Christmas is right around the corner, and people around the world are getting ready to celebrate. For some, that means bundling up and getting ready to play in the snow. For others, shorts and a t-shirt will be the attire of the season. Our Christmas special accounts for both of those groups.

Beginning now (15:00 MHQ time on December 15th), 1009 Sun icons and 1009 Snowflake icons (2018 in total) will be on the map. These specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap either of these icons, you will earn 20 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 18 points. These icons will leave the map at 23:59 MHQ time on Sunday, December 31st.

There are three badges that can be earned during this special:

  • Winter Wonderland – Capture at least one (1) Snowflake icon.

  • Christmas in the Sun – Capture at least one (1) Sun icon.

  • Wacky Weather Christmas – Cap at least one (1) Snowflake icon and at least one (1) Sun icon.

These icons are attracted by Magnets, you CAN capture these icons on your own munzees, and these will count toward the Special Hunters badge line.

We hope you enjoy this special! Have fun capping!

Munzee on!
