  1. Matejob liked a post in a topic by Ultrakool in (Discussion/Suggestion)Artificial Card supply by staff in the AH   
    Hi guys,
    A topic that has always been a given and not discussed much is the fact that the team will try to put up some cards in the AH at the start in an attempt to “kickstart” the economy. I just wanted to open up a discussion on whether or not you think this is a good idea from a utilitarian point of view which means for the greater good of the community as a whole. Also any economics majors or business people out there who can shed some light on how such an action will affect the economy will be much appreciated. With closed beta and release and the reset, we sort of have a chance to test out this theory of which will make better sense for the economy to implement when full release comes. I have had an external discussion with some community members and when I have a little time if the points are not mentioned by that point I may edit the post or add some new ones.

    Actually if you are not a ack of trades player (which let's admit, there are almost none in this game who can play on the same level with multiple decks) I totally understand your point of view, but if you want to try out new decks in ranked in my opinion you with your rank should be punished for it. You're actually saying that by trying out new decks on other accounts, you'll play with that deck on your main any time at all? Unfortunately I'm pretty sure you will not... And this only means that the top ranked players will just flood the rankings and it is unhealthy for the game IMO. So with this I want to point out the mistake in your argument: the players on the top of the rankings will play with their main deck only regardless of having multi accounts or not.
    Let me introduce you to a small example: if I am the top 50th ranked player in the game how is it fair for me to be only at the 85th place in the rankings? Because the top 20 players don't dare play other things on their main accounts and thus have 2nd and even 3rd accounts and can beat me with different decks anytime because their knowledge of the game is broader.
    I think trying out new decks and mastering them is a good thing, but if you do want to take it to ranked you should be punished for experimenting and should not take the place of other players.
     
    About the decaying, i definitely remember how it worked, and i didn't like it's way, because as a high-elo player you actually did not lose any elo, only your activity-multiplier decayed. Thus even if you were top1, later afk for 2 years and came back you would get back your prime rank real fast. But that is a totally different thing, plus probably it would happen even more times if the multi-accounting would be permitted.
    Oh, and I personally know at least 2 people who left multiple games because they got crushed by others. Nobody said that in this project only those will play who once had the Battleforge as their favourite game. There will be new players as well, and they will not be so devoted to the game if they do not get a sense of achievement at all.
     
    I do not remember to the bug clearly, but it had something to do with the bfp for sure and one of the auction house or mailing system.

    warning: lengthy post, youve been warned!

    i was never really a PVP'er in BF when it was around, i was ecstatic when they gave us rPVE finally after so much time cus my Shadow Worm couldnt disintegrate worth crap without the upgrades reducing the lifedrain when disintegrating multiple targets, sure it could merlt tier 1 infantry stupid fast but thats not the most useful way to use Mass Disintegration cus its better to use it on higher-value targets that would present larger threats

    granted back then we didnt have Amii Monument so yeah, couldnt just throw a Shaman in there to fix up the Shadow Worm

    but that said, i think both sides have some pretty good points

    on the one hand, yeah, it sucks if your a new player getting curbstomped non-stop cus of high ranked players decieiving you with their rank by using smurf accounts

    but on the other hand, in higher-end PVP, i can totally see why some people are against the idea of not allowing it, id be pretty darn frustrated too if i wanted to test a deck type im not at all familiar with as far as function and synergy cus i havent yet explored the deck sufficiently, but i then CANT explore the deck cus i either get stomped in 30 seconds by a high level player OR get constantly booted by low rank players because they get spooked when they see your rank

    while obviously ill support whichever decision is made, i think from a logical standpoint, the latter opinion is probably better for the game in the long-term. yes it will present some issues but as people have said those issues exist even without multi-accounting due to the rating systems dropping your ELO rank if your inactive for too long which has roughly the same effect as a smurf account sadistically curb-stomping lowbies, so either way you slice it, that probably isnt gonna disappear, its a matter of which method is less problematic in the long-term

    and im all for deck variety, i think thats part of what makes Battleforge so interesting, even if we likely wont ever get new content theres enough cards in total that theres alot of things that i bet never really saw their time to shine in higher-end PVP

    and if i do get into PVP, which i likely will this time around cus ive spent alot of improving my RTS game skills thanks to games like Starcraft 2, i would prefer to see MORE variety, rather than the same few meta/cookie-cutter decks all the time, but you cant do that if people cant properly experiment in PVP under fitting conditions, so if lowbies kick you cus of your rank, you cant experiment, but you also cant experiment if you get crushed too fast merely because you arent familiar with your deck

    this is obviously an important issue to find a good solution for, and there is for sure arguments to be made on both sides, but we cant just think of the launch window of the game when we discuss this, we have to think of what each of these 2 paths will do to the game a long time from now, im honestly not super concerned in the launch-period because its not like everyone will immediatly have a giant collection of cards since BFP is not able to be bought, so people are gonna have to build up their collections over time with luck of the booster packs being a big part of it, and im ok with that, but this makes this particular issue more important because we have to consider that at some point, the people who play the game with relative consistency will start capping out their collections, so we have to consider their desires when  it comes to seeing decks played in PVP, because if it gets too stale and too static, people like that wont have any reason to stick around, their card and upgrade collection will be pretty much maxed out, and their ability to make decks will be too, and if they cant haver fun making all sorts of zany crazy decks and actually being able to properly experiment and get to know the deck, its gonna cause players to leave gradually over time as more people reach that breakpoint

    so yes, we have to consider this carefully, i dont feel either side is either right or wrong, but neither side has a "home run" point either

    so i think further discussion should be done, and i think people should try to approach it with an open mind

    I am sorry if my English is not good enough to understand but if you fully read it , i said "people who cant play the game for fun and cant take a lose cus they want to experiment" That was ment for the ones that do smurf that they should take a lose if they want to try something why "punish" another lower rank making him lose vs a smurf or more of them , while he is maybe at his peak rank playing it normally . Like i dont want to lose to somebody thats similar to my elo i also dont want to lose vs somebody that a lower elo than me , but i dont even want to PLAY vs somebody thats a higher rank , unless im willing to practice (sparring grounds was kinda made for that) vs him in the first place, playing vs people who are hiding behind an alt is no fun , not cus it might be a loss but cus it can hardly be a win.

    (not my words)

  9. NedDeppat liked a post in a topic by Matejob in Multiple Accounts   
    Meh i guess its hard to convince people that were already just way to used 2 multi-accounting that it takes time to improve doesnt matter if you lose quick if you give up as quick as u lose than i dont know how to even try to defend my point with the over exaggerateing of the time i would lose in , that doesnt mean you would experiment with the deck that means the second u would lose your lead you would give up. As nofearek said it wouldnt effect his game that only applies to people who dont PVP at all , even you being in 3 lower rank games effects a lot of people cus remember you arent the only one doing it , im not saying you take up all the elo alone but remember if you arent the only one doing it you effect the other ranks . @nofearek9Downvoted cus you gave a really short answer that didnt really have any meaning to it for the community as a whole if you arent effected doesnt mean that other people wouldnt be .

    Honestly, no form of multi-character/accounts should be allowed, people who cant play the game for fun and cant take a lose cus they want to experiment or so-called "tryhards" shouldn't even play the game if they are playing it for elo and not for the game itself. If you want to play the game and if you are really good (using this as a best example) . Cant you just lose 2 games while trying the new deck , analyze what u could have improved on , cool your head by playing with your main deck to bring you elo back to your average/peak and after that try the experimental deck a few more times , and just repeat that.

  15. Matejob liked a post in a topic by Alstar in Which cards? Creature damage thread   
    From my understanding, Lost Spirit Ship can do the most damage per second, but it depends on how many entities are fought, or the direction faced by the unit. At best, it can shoots 8 missiles each dealing 115 damage for a total of 9200 every 2 seconds without upgrade. For a single unit, it's probably Tortugun for the raw damage, but Fire Dragon with Rage gets pretty close. Even then, the damage dealing description on the card is sometimes wrong, so @ImaginaryNumb3r's list is a better reference.
     
    On a sidenote, I checked the graph and I'm surprised at the total health of Giant Wyrm and Skycatcher ! Is there an explanation ?

    It was me, actually. Also, thank you to @Ladadoos for providing me with in-game verifications on these numbers.
    Here you go: Battleforge Card Stats.xlsx
  17. Matejob liked a post in a topic by ImaginaryNumb3r in Which cards? Creature damage thread   
    I'm going over the document once I am having access to the forge again. But I do believe that Fire Dragon, in fact, surpassed Tortugun in pure DPS once he is fully raged up.
    Also, every card has two stats. The one on the left is for unupgraded cards and the one on the right is for fully upgraded (U3) cards.
    Thank you, Matejob.
  18. Matejob liked a post in a topic by Eirias in Community run YouTube channel   
    Wow, no one's touched this in a long time....
    With the recent influx of PvP players making videos (I've seen @RadicalX and @FlameForge make their own channels), we might want to decide rules for who should contribute to the community channel, etc. I think like 90% of the videos on there are mine right now....
    I like awkwardly have 3 youtube channels, and I post most of them to the community channel...which means that most people only watch the community channel ones, and ignore the replays on my Eirias_BFR channel. So I'm trying to figure out if I should cut back on posting in the community channel to let "new blood" into the community channel (which means I'd post 70-90% of my videos on my personal channel, instead of vice versa), or I can continue to post most videos on the community channel, and turn my personal channel into something for strange replays, livecasts, Smash4 and other games, etc. Why do y'all think?

    Hello Skylords,
    So now, let's talk about what we're going to do after all you will have to wait a bit longer, and please forgive us for this delay.

    We have decided on a few things:
    Everyone will receive 2 boosters once the game will be in open beta (you'll still get them even after a potential reset) From the 1st of February and until the Open beta, we'll invite some players everyday to the closed beta, to increase the amount of players, progressively (Giveaways will happen anytime during the day, morning, afternoon, evening ..) You'll be able from now to pre-download the client, and we finally after a lot of discussion decided to give the client here on the forum ourselves. Want to pre-download it ? You can use Mediafire or MEGA to download it! (You cannot start the game right now, you'll have to wait for open beta, and the release of our launcher to make it work.)  
     
    INFORMATION : Giveaways for the Closed Beta will resume! These giveaways will mainly be held on Discord, but it may also happen on the forum, so keep following these two closely!
    Discord : https://discord.gg/0y3WGMGXhd5q2lXA

    With kind regards and apologies for any inconvenience caused,

    Sincerely,
    The Skylords Reborn Team

    As long as you will not be tampering with game files and getting an unfair advantage over other players, I don't see why we wouldn't allow it.

    @Treim i did some testing for some of the bandit units that seemed off (windhunter, sorceress) and some other obvious candidates such as snapjaws and that frost t1 sorcesress. however it was mostly to confirm values found in another list, which was more complete. it should be here in the forum somewhere, but i am not exactly sure where.
