    Greetings people of the sky
    I hope you all read the last community update.
    There is a section about an awesome community map, which was substantially enhanced and nearly made it into the official story.
    While it did not make it in to the official lore – Why not make an event for the map like we did for other awesome community maps!

    Map Trailer


    The challenge & ranking:
    The map is called "Restoring Lyr V2", so lets save Lyr by "saving up".
    The Team which spends the least amount of energy on cards receives the highest ranking.
    (abilities, repair, orb and well costs are ignored in the final score)
    For the event use Advanced difficulty.

    How to check the score & how to join:
     A new tab has been made on my website named "EVENT". -->  https://t1421.de/
    You can upload your replay there and it will tell you current score, as well as your current ranking in comparison of those who joined already.
    (Every team will get an alias)
    You can upload as many replays as you want. The website will always keep your best run for the rankings.

    In conclusion:
    Map:                      Community map: “Restoring Lyr”
    Difficulty:               Advanced
    Goal:                     Use the least amount of power to play out cards

  3. Nerokin liked a post in a topic by Potato_Hoarder in Autocast for toggleable global effects, or the ability to group 2 into 1 hotkey.   
    This refers to shrine cards, "soulstone", "fountain of rebirth", the others like it (not the shadow shrines those cards just screw your team over).
    Not cards like "fleshbender", "lifestream", "frontier keep", "ice shirld tower", etc.

    These cards are the greatest barrier between "good" and "casual/new" players, mostly on RPVE, with players opting to not run them so they wont get flamed for it not being up every 30s.

    Here are a few suggestions for implementation:

    a) If you believe its too unbalance or strong you could add a toggle (idk "X") to that it auto toggles but at 50% potency? for those of us without the skillset of a pro starcraft player. (shrine of the martyrs is a decent example)

    b) Make it work on RPVE only game modes? and not in PVE or PVP. (another thought would be make shrines in PRVE maps like in ascension to give small global buffs when found [toggleable and untargetable])

    c) If both of those options "go against the spirit of Battleforges intended gameplay" at least let us hotkey 2 buildings and press "Z" whenever we finish spamming spells on our units and remember we have a shrine somewhere on the map.

    If all these options seem overpowered remember wheel of gifts is a thing just balance it with that card in mind, and that card does 3 things very well and takes up only 1 slot.

    If you like the idea maybe "kobolt INC" ,"warden sigil", "kobolt laboratory" as those card barely see use.


    TL:DR
    Cards with 0 cost actives should autotoggle or have an option to autotoggle at a reduced efficiency.
  4. Potato_Hoarder liked a post in a topic by Kubik in Statement about antivirus programs flagging Skylords Reborn as unsafe   
    well no, it is not only the login credential, but everything, what cards you have, what maps you played, what actions you trying to do during match, .... everything, login credential are just the most obvious example. There is no EA's server to respond to these packets either, and there never was EA's server that would answer to things we added, like quests, achievements, cosmetics, booster history, ...
    So there is no other way to do this. But we have been doing it like this since the begining, so no idea, why AVs started to trigger so much more now.

  7. Potato_Hoarder liked a post in a topic by WindHunter in Autocast for toggleable global effects, or the ability to group 2 into 1 hotkey.   
    Options B and C are impossible. We have tried to change it so that players can add multiple buildings to a group and still use the abilities but we have been unsuccessful. The reason Bedrock's abilities disappear when you have multiple is because the spawn ability was originally from a building and it keeps the same limitation.

    Option A is possible, it is mostly a question of balance and if we want shrines to work like that. We have discussed making Cultist Master having an auto-cast summon ability to enable Furnace of Flesh + Cultist Master to function autonomously though less efficiently, but we have not pulled the trigger on that as an idea we want to implement at this time.
  8. Potato_Hoarder liked a post in a topic by Kubik in Autocast for toggleable global effects, or the ability to group 2 into 1 hotkey.   
    oh you just misunderstood me I think.
    What you call "global persistant buff" are at least 2 "abilities". ("ability" the game's terminology for any non instant effect, to simplify the definition, and "spell" is an instant one time effect)
    1. ability is relatively simple make another ability apply to all players
    2. ability will do the actual thing, but to do actual thing, which might be complicated chain of abilities...
    so for a card with 4 upgrade levels (0, 1, 2, 3) such thing is at least 8 new abilities, that will need to be maintained. (Not saying it is impossible, just pointing out the ammount of work)
    And as I said before there is no way for ability to behave differently based on map, and I do not think, that we should even try to add such thing, because it would only lead to a confusion, why card does not work on map X like on map Y.

    Same here. Would like to buy gold ingame for BFP, maybe in auction house.

    The gold system and the bfp system are designed to be entirely separate systems. This separateness makes it easier for us to balance them individually, and it also ensures that we avoid gold selling schemes which could get the project in trouble. 
    After we released some veteran-oriented achievements in January 2023, we spent the last year working on the early to mid-game experience. We think these are now in a good place with the gold rework, tutorial missions, and early game achievements. As such, we will be focusing on late-game content moving forward with one of the intentions being gold sinks.

    I totally agree there should be hard and superhard achievements, though it doesn't have to be that "Play X hours constantly" stuff.  If the data suggests the Reserve stuff frustrates Skylords away from the game, it's the right move to remove them.
    But as we have seen on the "Force of Nature" patch, achievements can revitalize interest pretty strongly.

    There could be also some harder archivements.

    Dont nerf achivments based on "frustration" balance them only by seing if its doable or not! i have all the new achivments and can confirm they are indeed dooable, it takes all the credit away from completing them, if they are easy.  Sure ppl are going to cry about it, just like im doing but opposite, its natural, and its also natural for achivments to mean something, and be hard to ACHIVE.

    Patch #400036
    Welcome to our newest patch. This update contains a follow-up to our larger patch earlier in the month with new achievements and changes to existing achievements. 

    General Changes
    Added notificaton when all gold chests have been opened. Fixed bug where you could start campaign PvE matches with free PvP decks. Solved numerous smaller textual inconsistencies in the UI. Renamed "Delete all" to "Collect all" in the mail window. Added dialog box that mentions the mails will also be deleted, instead. Removed map seeds from the random PvE map pool known to crash the game. This should solve the issue where a random PvE map crashes on start-up. Faction ability icons are no longer displayed as status effects on a unit to conserve space for non-permanent effects. This includes: Life Stealer (Bandits), Elusive (Amii), Adamant Skin (Stonekin units), and Adamant Alloy (Stonekin buildings).
    New & Existing Achievements
    Skylords Reborn released with a base set of achievements, including 3 achievements which reward players for draining their BFP reserves. Unfortunately, since release we have seen that contrary to encouraging more play, these reserve achievements are actually driving players away from the game. Players will grind many hours in a row to finish all three achievements and in the process completely burn themselves out. Given this situation, we have decided to remove all 3 reserve achievements and replace them with general in-game playtime achievements that the player can complete at their own pace. These new achievements will be available to everyone, even those who previously completed the reserve achievements.
    Sadly, our newest achievements were also not free from issues. "A Wrinkle in Time" caused a lot of confusion with its description and has been updated accordingly. Our new RPvE 10 achievement "Abandon Hope..." has proved to be quite popular, even with brand-new players who attempt it without being properly prepared. This has led to frustration among our more veteran players, who the achievement was meant to help by increasing the RPvE 10 player pool. As such, we have locked the achievement beyond PvE Rank 10, to prevent unprepared players from joining lobbies in hopes of easy boosters. Our Pure Fire achievement "Never Thought of Him" has had a very low completion rate and after talking to players we decided to reduce the restrictions. Now, only the player pursuing the achievement is required to use a Pure Fire deck, instead of the entire team. While not mentioned here, see PvE map changes below, we have made changes to Defending Hope to allow the player to activate Rogan with a building and not just a unit. While the fact Rogan required a unit to be activated was intended to be a fun puzzle-like challenge for the "A City Strongly Compact" achievement, we noticed this caused substantial frustration among players, especially those who were also trying to complete "The Long Journey Home" simultaneously.

    It's a bit tricky because for some factions there are very strong baseline C and UC cards. Yet for others there are key Rs and URs that can really elevate a deck.
    The economical ramifications also have to be kept in mind. Cards that are given out for free will drop in value. Even if you made them account-bound. Now, Cs and UCs aren't as affected because they hover around the baseline established by reforging. Different story for Rs though.
  17. Potato_Hoarder liked a post in a topic by Dallarian in Achievements for beginners with "essential" cards   
    Current "play faction n times" achievements end at 10 games, and possibly expanding those to include more common and uncommon cards would be cool.
    I am not sure if giving rare cards in such a way is a good idea, though.

    Hello,

    For new players its pretty hard and expensive to get a decent deck, which puts some people off and makes playing some standard difficulty maps a challenge.

    What I am proposing are more Achievements aimed directly at new players.

    for example:

    Play 50 nature cards -> 1x Werebeast
    Play 100 nature cards -> 1x Shaman
    Play 250 nature cards -> 1x Manawing
    Play 500 nature cards -> 1x Grimvine
    Play 1000 nature cards ->1x Deep coil
     
    Play 50 fire cards -> 1x Nomad G
    Play 100 fire cards -> 1x Mortar Tower
    Play 250 fire cards -> 1x Sunderer
    Play 500 fire cards -> 1x  Vulcan
    Play 1000 fire cards -> 1x Magma Fiend
     
    Play 50 shadow cards -> 1x Skeleton Warriors
    Play 100 shadow cards -> 1x Nox Trooper
    Play 250 shadow  cards -> 1x Furnace of flesh
    Play 500 shadow cards -> 1x Ashborn Pyro
    Play 1000 shadow cards -> 1x Overlord
     
    Play 50 frost cards -> 1x Northern Keep R
    Play 100 frost cards -> 1x Frost Mage
    Play 250 frost cards -> 1x War Eagle
    Play 500 frost cards -> 1x Juice Tank
    Play 1000 frost  cards -> 1x Construct
     
    Play 50 bandit cards -> 1x Banditos
    Play 100 bandit  cards -> 1x Commandos B
    Play 250 bandit  cards -> 1x Windhunter
    Play 500 bandit  cards -> 1x Corsair P
    Play 1000 bandit  cards -> 1x Soulhunter B
     
    Play 50 lost cards -> 1x Lost Wanderer G
    Play 100 lost cards -> 1x Lost Dancer R
    Play 250 lost cards -> 1x Lost Reaver P
    Play 500 lost cards -> 1x Lost Horror R
    Play 1000 lost cards -> 1x Lost Dragon G
     
    Play 50 twilight cards -> 1x Slaver P
    Play 100 twilight cards -> 1x Vile Blood G
    Play 250 twilight cards -> 1x Mutating Maniac G
    Play 500 twilight cards -> 1x Tree Fiend G
    Play 1000 twilight cards -> 1x Abomination B
     
    Play 50 stonekin cards -> 1x Stone Hurler R
    Play 100 stonekin cards -> 1x Aggressor G
    Play 250 stonekin cards -> 1x DeepFang R
    Play 500 stonekin cards -> 1x Gemeye G
    Play 1000 stonekin cards -> 1x Grinder P
     
    These are all up for change or debate, I was trying to think of decent cards that aren't too rare or expensive in the marker place, that's why fire dancer, harvester , forest elder, Dreadnaught weren't included although they might make decent 10K cards played achievements (basic not promo). The "Mixed" orb ones are more difficult and rarer although it could be adjusted and have play any of the two orbs.

    Tell me what you think!

    edit: Spelling and better wording
