  1. Metagross31 liked a post in a topic by MrXLink in Card Upgrade and Hidden Info Database   
    Greetings, Skylords
    As some of you might already have heard, I've been spending my time in the forge updating existing information we had on card upgrades, ability costs and hidden values and meanings behind obscure ability descriptions. It has finally been completed; I have documented every card's upgrade values, found out each ability cost (which is not usually stated in card descriptions) and I have found some missing information on some card descriptions that are vague or don't describe anything at all. Examples include the mechanics behind Rage and Root Network bonuses, spawned creature health/attack power or even what the heck spells like Lost Evocation and Thunderstorm do exactly.
    I put it all in a speadsheet for you to observe. Hopefully we can use all this information to keep the Wiki, Allcards and the game itself in a better state! Have a look over here to see the list:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EymgWic3qqaZeakjhMr5nUhhidxzKVg2GzVVfZp3M08/edit?usp=sharing
    Enjoy and expect the future to hold wiki updates to be done. 
    Stay cool, Skylords, and please try to avoid those pesky little rodents hiding in the soles of your shoes, they have sent complaints.

    Greetings, Skylords, Skyladies and Skyfolks,
    We would like to remind you all that we do not condone making multiple accounts in any way, be it for reward/progression system abuse in-game, shadowing your identity, circumventing penalties, or literally any other reason. Multi-accounting is strictly forbidden, Accounts in households, shared computers, or shared dwellings should not affect our system, and if you stick by our regulations, you should all have nothing to worry about.
    To make sure everyone is aware of this, there are warnings in place on our forums as well as in-game, and additional clarification has been added to the Global Rules (Rule 3.1). Also be reminded that this specific rule is a part of our Terms of Service (ToS) and our Registration Policy, meaning that by creating your account, you agree with the risks of multi-accounting and accept the reset of your main account and the loss of your access if you re-offend. Please also note our main warning: https://forum.skylords.eu/index.php?/announcement/29-beware-multiaccounting-can-cause-permabans/
    We hope you understand our concern and abide by the rules to make the forums as well as the game a safe, enjoyable, and wholesome place.

    Heya Skyfolk!

    There have been increasing concerns lately about people selling and buying in-game content for real-life currency. We'd like to clarify that we do not and will never sell any BattleForge content for real-life money. This is due to the project being non-profit and a revival passion project in which we do not own any of the rights required to sell anything that's part of the game. Also, we like giving you a free experience of this amazing game without you ever having to worry about it being pay-to-win!
    ANY kind of activity in the games, the forums, or our official discord server that involves trading in-game content for non-in-game content, be it real-life currency, accounts, games, literally anything that's not a part of the game, is strictly forbidden and not condoned by the Skylords Reborn Team. We do not and will never tolerate any kind of transactions that go beyond the game, such as account sales or trading BFP for real-life money, even if it was meant as a joke.
    These kinds of malpractices put the entire game at risk for everyone involved; they could and will shut down the project entirely, never making Skylords Reborn available to the people again.  We don't want that to happen, and hopefully neither do any of you. We're very proud and happy to provide the BF experience to you and we intend to keep doing so!
    For the safety of the community as well as the entire project's future, please consider the following:
    If you see anyone attempting to sell or buy in-game content for out-of-game content on any platform report this to SR staff as soon as you can! We will do what we can to crack down on these cases as soon as possible. You can report someone by right clicking their name in the game and then clicking the report button, using the report function on the forums, or sending a DM to the SR Staff Mail bot on our Discord server. We will never sell you in-game content for real money. If someone does, report it. Attempting to sell in-game content like this is considered a threat to the entire project and its community, and will result in a permanent ban. This ban is NOT negotiable; you will never be able to access the game again. Period. We take these kinds of issues very seriously and we will always do what we can to keep Skylords Reborn a safe and enjoyable place for you all, and that means we try to keep it free from black market practices. By reporting, you can help keep Nyn safe and keep the game alive for all of us!
    Thanks for keeping the game safe and enjoyable with us! Stay cool, stay safe, and enjoy the forge!

  5. T1421 liked a post in a topic by MrXLink in Skylords Reborn Booster Ratios   
    Greetings Skylords, Skyladies, and Skyfolks!
    XLink here coming with another game design update. Now, it has come to our attention that a lot of you have been wondering what your booster odds are in Skylords Reborn. That is to say, what are your chances of getting different rarities of cards? I will provide you with answers to this debate, as an official ratio has been set up. We've had many questions as to what the exact rates are, and so I'll clear things up a bit, and explain why the ratio has changed.
    The original BattleForge used a system where rare cards and ultra-rare cards are difficult to obtain. Boosters would give you 5 commons, 2 uncommons, and a rare or ultra-rare card at 16% (1/6) odds. This seems like a reasonable ratio. However, when I looked into the amount of cards in the game over the rarity given, it's noted that about 40% of all cards are Rare or Ultra Rare. This is a significant portion of all cards, that have a very low chance of being obtained.
    Since we will not be exploiting a microtransaction system to siphon your money out through booster rarities, as well as with the spirit of being able to obtain cards quicker, easier and in a more satisfying and enjoyable manner, it's been decided that we increase the chance of getting rare cards in boosters, to let that 40% flow to the players more efficiently than by 16% of a booster at a time. It'll be easier to get that shiny loot! This has been the case since closed beta, and has been tested within closed beta, which has been quite a success. Many of you have asked what the exact ratio was, and we decided to keep it under the radar a bit for testing and changing purposes, but now that we have established a solid ratio, I'm publishing your odds right here. (this has been published before, but not definitively, in a beta thread) This does not mean that these are definitive. They are close to definitive, but in case of design flaws or the odds not turning out as we would have liked them to turn out, these ratios are subject to change; especially the promo ratio.
    With these ratio changes I'm officially introducing our way of distributing promo cards; every booster will have a very small chance of granting a promo card. This way, everyone will have access to these elusive, extremely rare cards. We will also possibly use them as rewards for tournaments and official events. Seasonal promos, like Santa Claus and Easter Egg, will not be available in regular boosters.

    With that all being said, here are the general odds for the card boosters in Skylords Reborn! The cards go from top left to bottom right.
    Card 1: 0.5% Promo, 19.5% Ultra Rare, 80% Rare Card 2: 15% Rare, 85% Uncommon Card 3: 20% Uncommon, 80% Common Card 4: 100% Uncommon Cards 5, 6, 7 and 8: 100% Common This means that every single booster will provide you with up to 1 ultra-rare at a time, up to 2 rares at a time, and up to 3 uncommons at a time. If you get an Ultra Rare or a promo, there is still a chance you will get a rare. Getting 2 rares and 2 uncommons will therefore not be a strange sight, as it would have been in the original game. Remember that the promo ratio especially may be subject to change if we deem it too high or too low of a chance.
    We hope that these new ratios will provide a quicker, more enjoyable and way more satisfying way of collecting cards, to kickstart the game more efficiently and make grinding and collecting a little more bearable, whilst sticking to the game's original mechanics.

    In the nearby future, we will discuss the possibility of different types of boosters (e.g. editions, elements) and potential odds and card pools for them, internally. Stay tuned for more information on that in said nearby future. Booster prices will be discussed in the even more distant future, when the programming team is ready for it.
    I hope to have informed you sufficiently on the new booster ratios. Be wary that this booster ratio has been calculated quite thoroughly and is pretty much definitive. Even small changes could throw the booster rarity ratios off balance; we have found these values to hit the sweet spot.
    Feel free to let me know what you think and to discuss the topic below, taking the aforementioned statement in mind.
    Stay tuned for future design updates, and may the forge be with you!

  7. MoonCres liked a post in a topic by MrXLink in Skylords Reborn - All you need to know!   
    Greetings Skylords, Skyladies and Skyfolks,

    After five years of development Skylords Reborn has finally hit full release, we want to thank every single one of you for joining and supporting us on our journey. This topic will provide you with all the information, details, and answers you need.
    How can I play this game?
    You can find instructions for downloading and installing the game here.

    How do I log in to the game?
    First, you need to create an account on this forum, here. Afterwards you can simply login with the same account in the game. A game account will automatically be created and linked to your forum account. Do not make multiple accounts for yourself. You are allowed to play with your family/friends in the same house.

    What is Skylords Reborn?
    Skylords Reborn is a project which started off as a 2-man team working on allowing the community to play BattleForge again. BattleForge was a Real-Time Strategy Collectible Card PC game (not a MOBA) made by EA Phenomic in 2009 that got closed down on October 31 2013, disappointing many players. The ever-growing Skylords Reborn team has been working hard to make BattleForge playable and accessible for its still large community and new players once more! You can read more about our project on our wiki.

    Can I upload content of Skylords Reborn?
    Yes. You are allowed to make Youtube and Twitch videos and streams of Skylords Reborn.

    Will I be able to use my old account?
    No. As we are not EA we do not have access to your old accounts and never will, so you will have to create a new one and start from scratch. We know this is annoying but there is no way for us to retrieve account information. At least you can play the game again!

    What is the difference between Skylords Reborn and old BattleForge?
    Everything from the original game works but there has been a number of changes. (see list below)
    Cards
    Balance changes and new cards Economy
    Free to Play (no payments for game progression) Daily time based BFP rewards Daily PvP and PvE quests (Resets daily at 10:00 UTC) Seasonal & Lifetime Achievements Faction Boosters Removal of Tokens. Gold is now used instead and is untradable. Removal of Elements of Conversion/Creation. PvP
    Free PvP deck rotations Official Tournaments (BFP rewards) Spectator versions for all 1vs1 maps PvE
    All campaign maps available again (including 12 player maps) New high-quality community maps And many other quality of life improvements.
    Can I buy/sell BFP for real money?
    Absolutely not! People who are noted to sell or attempt to buy BFP or any in-game content with real money may be banned from playing the game at all, or have their accounts reset. We take no responsibility whatsoever in any lost money or in-game content. We don't sell BFP for a very good reason as this project is allowed to exist due to the fact that we are making zero profit or income from the game, which would be using someone else's ideas and content for claiming money. If you buy or sell in-game content, you are essentially doing the same thing and this could put both you as well as the entire project at risk of being shut down.

    How can I earn Gold and Upgrades?
    Since tokens have been removed from the game entirely, you will earn gold instead through playing Randomly Generated PvE, Sparring PvP, and disenchanting upgrades found in Campaign PvE maps. The upgrade drops have been changed, and you can find the new loot list in this topic.

    How can I obtain promos?
    You can get promos as an extremely rare reward in boosters, or during special events that we will host.

    I found a bug! What now? How do I report a bug?
    Please refer to the "Report A Bug" forum, and particularly this topic.

    I have seen someone cheat, flame, or severely break the rules. Where do I report this?
    You can right-click on a player to report them in-game. You can also report this behaviour directly to the Moderation Team (Global Moderators) on the forums or discord. Please refer to the Ticket Tool thread here when reporting on discord.

    Is the game only available in English?
    The game can be played in all languages that were previously available. This includes English, German, French and Russian. However, we are mostly focusing our project and any announcements around the English language.

    Have you asked EA for help with the project? Do you work for EA?
    No, we do not work for EA and we sincerely doubt EA is interested in the funding of the project nor rebooting the game. We do not expect any help from EA. We have, however, been given permission to alter the existing client and make this project a reality until further notice is provided. Former BF staff are likely under NDA as well, disallowing them to help us in the first place.

    If this project is completely non-profit, how will you keep the servers up?
    We have created a patreon page here. Any donated money will be spent on server upkeep, development and a lot will be saved up for future server upkeep. No money whatsoever will go into our own pockets. You can make a one time payment and then unsubscribe from us or you can pick to pay every month. Please note all Patrons will not gain any benefits in game.

    Where is the server located?
    The server is located in Germany.

    Will you distribute the server files for private hosting?
    No. The project is closed source, which means that the files (code) are not public.

    I have another question!
    Alright, that's cool! Before you continue, however, please use the forum's search function to find any threads that may have your question in it. If your question really isn't answered yet, feel free to create a thread.
    That's all! We hope you enjoy your time in the world of Nyn and help the game and its community grow together! As always, We're hugely grateful for all your support, and we wouldn't be here without you all. Keep up the good spirits, you're all fantastic beings. See you in the forge, and may the forge be with you!

    Dear Skylords, Skyladies, and other skyfolk,
    As you may know I've been here a long, long time. 12 years ago on the official forums, and pretty much ever since this project started. Over those years a lot has changed, for better and for worse. Both myself and some of the veterans around here have seen the game and its dev team rise and fall more often than we'd all like to admit, but we prevailed and we held on to Nyn and the wonders of this unique RTS/TCG hybrid. BattleForge has always been a great passion of mine, as a player and as a developer.
    But times change, and life changes, and as Skylords Reborn grew to the size and state that it is now, my own time had to be more and more divided. Graduation, running a full-time job, major changes in my personal life and thought processes, and the ongoing pandemic have greatly jumbled up my day-to-day life, my mind, and my available time and energy. This has had quite an impact on how well I can contribute to this project right now, and so I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't feel appropriate to be a part of the SR team for as little work as I'm able to get myself to contribute. 
    It's with a heavy heart I'm saying I am, on my own accord, stepping down from the SR team for the time being, but I feel that it's necessary. This is purely personal and has nothing to do with the current team, community, or the game itself; after all, we've accomplished so much, all of us! Thanks to all of you we've actually succeeded in what many thought to be utterly impossible; to revive an entire game purely out of passion, figuring out its inner workings, and altering it to make it a 100% free, enjoyable, non-profit game to keep enjoying despite the studio having long been disbanded. I've had the pleasure of working with an already fantastic community and team on a passion project others would dream of, and over time the team's grown so much.
    It's been fantastic working on Skylords for so long and the game and project still are very dear to me. Throughout the years I've learnt tremendously much and have helped to keep things afloat in both bright and darker times for the project; it's been a rollercoaster for all of us. But we got there! We got to a fantastic release and have a whole revitalised and excited team ready to support all of you for a long time to come! This project is now in better hands than I could ever have anticipated, and I am happy and confident to leave Skylords Reborn to some of the most capable people I've had the pleasure of meeting.
    I'll be stepping down after having been a long-time admin, CM, moderator and designer, and though I will keep providing some advice and help in the background, I will stop being a dev and remain a player. Perhaps I'll return if my personal life allows for it in the future, but as of right now I simply don't think I can contribute enough. 
    It's been an absolute honour being a part of BattleForge's development throughout well over a decade, and I want to thank everybody for their continued work, support and belief in the amazing things we've ended up accomplishing. That includes you, no matter how long you're here or if you even know me. We did it! I'm still so proud of all of us, and I am happy to know the project's in great hands. Keep up the amazing work and let the hype train rage ever onward.
    Thanks for everything, until next time, and may the Forge be ever with you!

    Important notice: saying "kappa" or using the "kappa" or "troll" emote is by absolutely no means an excuse to act vulgarly or break the forum rules in any way. Not even as a joke. Same goes for any form of indicating sarcasm, such as "/s"
    1.1. Language
    These Forums and our Discord server are made for a global community. We assume English (UK/US) to be our global language and thereby it is required that every user posts their content within the English language. Additionally, inappropriate or vulgar language (cursing, swearing, etc.) is not permitted. In-game you are allowed to write in any language and do not require translations.

    Posts outside of the English (UK/US) language will result in a request for translation, which, if not obeyed, will result in post deletion and a warning being issued. Multiple warnings may result in account suspension or restriction of indeterminate length.
    1.2. Keeping it Legal
    We kindly ask you to not bring seriously illegal topics onto these Forums, Discord or into the game. Whereas sometimes these topics are allowed to be used in a discussion or post, please try to set boundaries and ensure that topics will not rise to a criminal level. Refrain from expressing specific methods of piracy or committing crimes. Though unlikely to appear, refrain from posting cheats or hacks for the game, even if this is to point out they exist. If you are thus far urged to report such an activity, contact a staff member or use the Forums or in-game report tool.
    2. Spamming and/or Trolling
    Spamming as well as trolling is not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
    Excessively communicating the same phrase, similar phrases, gibberish, or any repetitive posts of the same content Creating threads or in-game messages for the sole purpose of causing unrest and disturbance within the community Causing disturbances in forum threads or in-game, such as picking fights, making severely off-topic posts that may ruin the thread, and insulting others Making non-constructive comments Clustering spoiler boxes (aka a spoiler in a spoiler in a spoiler in a spoiler etc.) Making senseless or other rule 2-infringing posts to increase rank "Adding fuel to the fire" or ensure the continuation or lengthening of fights, harassment, insults, and flame wars Abusing the Report tool (false alarms, nonsensical messages, insults) Posts marking a thread numbered, IBTL, TL;DR, or any other fad statements Creating duplicate accounts for whatever reason In-game: Griefing or purposely hindering allied players including abusing Shadow's self-damage skills. In-game: Being AFK/Away or being purposely inactive (letting the others do the work for you without consent) Mind that these rules apply as much to the Off-Topic board as to any other forum board, as well as in-game where applicable. Examples of any of the above will be deleted at sight. Depending on re-occurrence  or the severity of the violation, this may result in warnings or direct account suspension or restriction for an indeterminate time.

    3. Impersonation
    Impersonating a Skylords Reborn staff member or forum user to do harm, create fake posts or announcements in order to make others believe they originate from the impersonated person, or unjustly cause confusion among other users will result in immediate account suspension for an indeterminate duration without warning.
    3.1 No Multi-Accounting
    Making duplicate accounts to circumvent bans, to circumvent daily reward or ELO systems, or for literally any other reason, is strictly forbidden, both on the Forums as well as in-game. We do not condone making additional accounts to speed up progression, get more points, to hide your identity, or for any other reason whatsoever. Routine and automatic multi-accounting detection has been applied to prevent multi-accounting, and accounts with IP matches may be suspended. Shared or public computers are taken into account, and if you accidentally get caught by our system while you are not intending to multi-account (e.g. have siblings/roommates/friends on the same IP or network, public PC, shared PC), feel free to contact staff in any other way. If sufficient proof is given, we can revert your penalties. Any registrations that closely resemble multi-accounting may have all their accounts banned immediately and without warning.
    4. Making Up Dev Statements
    Making up dev statements, especially feature dates is strictly forbidden. Do not assume you know more than Forums, streams or official social media tell, and never make up any release dates or fake information, not even as a joke.
    5. Trade Rules
    No begging No scamming No public reports/blaming of the above No forum or in-game account selling No transfers or suggestions or mention of transfers, transactions, or trades involving any real-life currency, including online measures such as paypal. Trade strictly through in-game currency and/or cards on both ends of a deal. Failing to follow the last two rules of this section will result in a permanent ban without warning or negotiation. Any violation of the other rules may result in a warning. Consecutive warnings may result in account suspension or restriction of indeterminate length. 
    6. Avoiding Penalties
    Do not break the rules and do not avoid penalties thereof. This includes making duplicate accounts, as well as making others post on your behalf. Duplicate accounts for any purpose whatsoever are considered to be an infringement of the rules. Attempting to avoid penalties will result in extension of said penalty, possibly to the extent of lengthy suspensions, permanent banishment or account deletion.
    7. Being a robot
    Spam-bots or suspected spam-bots will be deleted at sight. If staff has accidentally mistaken you for a spam-bot, try to contact Skylords Reborn staff in another way, such as private messaging on the Forums, or use the #contact-staff on our Discord Server.
    8. Responding to Rule Violation / Reporting Content
    If a user does not follow these rules, it is strictly forbidden to publicly denounce or point out to this user that they are breaking the rules. This counts as public denouncement/insulting and is not tolerated. If you wish to inform someone of their rule violation, do so in a private, kind, supportive and structured way whilst following Rule 1. If you wish for SR staff to act, rather than sending a private message to them, click the report button under the infringing post. Provide a reason and staff will get behind this whenever they can or see fit. Abusing the report button will result in immediate warnings which may lead to account suspension or restriction of indeterminate length. 

    Similarly, you can report other players in-game by right clicking on the players and clicking "Report". Again, it is important to know that forum and in-game reports must abide by rules 1 and 2. Failure to abide by this may result in receiving penalties yourself.
    9. Respect the Staff and their Decisions
    We try our utmost best to do our job of managing these Forums, the game and the community to our own ability. We try to do our jobs at a pace we see fit, please have patience. We apply lenience of rule enforcement to our own standards. Any threads or posts mocking staff decisions may be removed at sight and consequences may apply as would be taken to act against public denouncement. If you have a problem with the actions of a staff member, discussing it privately, preferably with that staff member, is the only right way to approach it such a situation. No reporting, no public denouncement. Rudeness towards staff may be penalized as staff sees fit. Criticizing development speed may be penalized as staff sees fit. Severe problems with Moderators that you feel should be anonymous for whatever reason must be sent to an Administrator and by absolutely no means anybody else. 
    9.1 Respect warnings and the privacy thereof
    If you end up receiving a warning, we expect you to keep this information private, as is already described in the rules above. Publicly talking about, discussing or criticizing warnings of any form, or action taken against you or another forum member, is subject to possibly increasing your warning's value or duration and is in violation with rule 9. Please do keep this information private and if you feel like discussing this with other members feel free to do so in PM or outside of the Discord Server, Forum threads or status updates. If the discussion remains to be public, please beware of the risks this may bring within our domain. The Skylords Reborn Team reserves the right to take preventative measures within their domain.
    10. Content Uploading Policy
    You are allowed to make Youtube videos, streams, write blogs and posts etc. about Skylords Reborn.
    Additionally, the SR team reserves the right to intervene with content distribution if they deem this necessary. If they see the need to shut certain community content uploading down they may do so without reasoning or warning. However, if any content will be a victim to this, these will most likely be provided anyway.
    11. Game client and bug abuse
    The usage of any bugs within any in-game content to any unintended benefit to any user in the game is forbidden and will result in bans. This includes breaking the game, manipulating the client or server in any way, using bugs to your or anyone else's advantage, generating any currency, value or account data outside of their intended purposes, and generally doing anything to the game (local or global) that you should not be doing. This does not include using design flaws on maps to get a more efficient clear time, but does include pretty much any other illegal action, such as cheating, data manipulation, or bug abuse. Currency or other data involved will not be refunded.
    12. Cheating
    In addition to the rules above it's important to emphasize that the usage of any tools, trainers, software or other methods of affecting the game in order to cheat, gain advantages, or for any other purpose whatsoever, is strictly forbidden. These programs or forms of abuse provide us with enough reason to act immediately. Having such tools linked to the game or affecting it in any way, even when unaware thereof or when they aren't used at all, is considered in conflict with our code of conduct. Only using them in single player, only using them for yourself, or assuming other players are not affected are invalid excuses and such reasoning will be directly ignored, as will subsequent ban appeal(s) and their reasoning. Affected networks or other accounts will not be taken into consideration when cheating players are banned, and we hold the infringing player accountable for any such results affecting those around them. We consider this to be common sense.
    [ADDITIONAL FORUM RULES]
    13. Posting Behaviour
    There are a number of rules every user should stick to whilst they create a thread or response to an existing thread or chat:
    No thread-bumping within 24 hours of a thread's last post Necroposting outside of Off-Topic boards is not recommended (Applies to threads of which the last post is older than 30 days) NO ALL-CAPS POSTS No threads that already exist or questions that are already answered in the FAQ (Use the Search Function!) No IMspeak/netspeak/txtspeak, please take your time to create an understandable reply or topic No double-posting. Or triple-posting. Or quadraposting. Or pentaposting... No consecutive similar posts. This applies to both threads and replies and is accepted as spam No more than 2 animated pictures (.GIF) per post No public blaming, no matter how right or wrong both you and the subject matter are No insulting. Cynicism may count as insulting No public reporting or "member-ating" (acting like a moderator i.e. (strictly) pointing someone at the rules) The report button is there for a reason! Similarly, staff behavior and rule enforcing leniency should preferably be discussed privately and should be respected. No begging for reputation No begging for admin/dev/mod approval or response. We'll find your thread ourselves Post your topics within the appropriate forum. (If not, Moderators will move your topic, but if this happens too much, appropriate measures will be taken, e.g. warnings/suspensions) Use descriptive thread titles outside of Off-Topic boards. Not only will threads with titles like "Hi", "Help", "Plz", "Error", etc. repel users, but they are also vague and unhelpful. No lying or awakening false hopes through made-up dev statements. You can help people out by explaining Developer statements, but don't assume you know what you do not know, as this is punishable Failure to abide by these rules may result in edits and/or warnings. Consecutive warnings will result in account suspension or restriction for indeterminate length.
    14. Profile Restrictions
    Although most restrictions to accounts are automatically implemented, we want to make you aware of some points and rules regarding your user profile.
    Avatars/Profile Photos
    Must abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Must not be animated Signatures
    Can't be longer than 255 characters Have a total restriction in size of 600x150px for imagery. The total signature height should not exceed 150px (that includes both images and text together) Animated GIFs are not permitted Embedded content, such as YouTube videos and widgets, is not permitted Should not contain overly large text Must abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Should not contain referral/affiliate links Cover Photos
    Should not be animated Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 About Me
    Animated GIFs are not permitted Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Usernames
    Should not contain links Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Other profile fields
    Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Any violation of these rules may result in editing or a warning. Consecutive warnings may result in account suspension or restriction of indeterminate length.
    15. Reputation/Like System
    The reputation system (rep system) is there for the community to give value to posts other users make ("likes"). When using the rep system, take a few things in mind:
    The rep system is NOT a user-group improving system. Having a lot of reputation makes you look trustworthy, but makes you no more or less of a user than everyone else. Do not beg for likes. This will result in warnings, edits, and may even result in penalties if re-occurring. Rep of any form creates no exceptions to forum rules whatsoever; rep itself should abide by the forum rules and having any value of rep does not make one an exception to the rules either. Spamming rep in any form is not allowed. Said user may be reported validly. Reputation should never be used to enforce an argument. Sure, likes reserve the right to show you like or are in agreement with a post, but not to establish or force groups of people to support your standpoint, especially not if the argument or discussion caused is against the rules in the first place.
    15.1 Reputation System Enforcement
    We do not tolerate the incentive of abusing reputation in any of the above ways. Therefore, if staff considers your reputation to be in any way spamming, invalid or used in a way it should not be used, staff undeniably reserve the right to act and penalize users for said behavior. We will always give warning(s) in advance for this. Failure to adapt results in rep changes being nullified and penalties applying. This means staff can judge the intentions of your reputation points as they see fit. Feel free to contact the Moderators if you have issues with this, but they  reserve the right to refer to this rule and close the case that way. Therefore, use reputation at your own risk. Rule 9.1 may apply undeniably with no discussion possible.
    NOTE: Replies have been disabled. Should you have any remaining burning questions about this thread, feel free to contact the Skylords Reborn Moderation Team [HERE]

    [DETAILED RULES]
    The rules are what is expected from all community members.

Warnings are usually non-negotiable, but users reserve the right to ask for clarification, whilst being aware that this will in no way ensure a response to said warning and will in no way ensure a change of result. Repetitive violation of the rules may result in permanent banishment from these Forums and therefore the game. Note that these rules are not language-restrictive; they apply globally. Staff reserve the right to take preventative or retroactive measures against known threats to our domain, including but not limited to spambots, known toxicity, and otherwise known people that may disrespect or have disrespected our policy.

    [GLOBAL RULES]

(If not, Moderators will move your topic, but if this happens too much, appropriate measures will be taken, e.g. warnings/suspensions) Use descriptive thread titles outside of Off-Topic boards. Not only will threads with titles like "Hi", "Help", "Plz", "Error", etc. repel users, but they are also vague and unhelpful. No lying or awakening false hopes through made-up dev statements. You can help people out by explaining Developer statements, but don't assume you know what you do not know, as this is punishable Failure to abide by these rules may result in edits and/or warnings. Consecutive warnings will result in account suspension or restriction for indeterminate length.
    14. Profile Restrictions
    Although most restrictions to accounts are automatically implemented, we want to make you aware of some points and rules regarding your user profile.
    Avatars/Profile Photos
    Must abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Must not be animated Signatures
    Can't be longer than 255 characters Have a total restriction in size of 600x150px for imagery. The total signature height should not exceed 150px (that includes both images and text together) Animated GIFs are not permitted Embedded content, such as YouTube videos and widgets, is not permitted Should not contain overly large text Must abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Should not contain referral/affiliate links Cover Photos
    Should not be animated Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 About Me
    Animated GIFs are not permitted Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Usernames
    Should not contain links Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Other profile fields
    Should abide by at the very least the entirety of Rule 1 Any violation of these rules may result in editing or a warning. Consecutive warnings may result in account suspension or restriction of indeterminate length.
    15. Reputation/Like System
    The reputation system (rep system) is there for the community to give value to posts other users make ("likes"). When using the rep system, take a few things in mind:
    The rep system is NOT a user-group improving system. Having a lot of reputation makes you look trustworthy, but makes you no more or less of a user than everyone else. Do not beg for likes. This will result in warnings, edits, and may even result in penalties if re-occurring. Rep of any form creates no exceptions to forum rules whatsoever; rep itself should abide by the forum rules and having any value of rep does not make one an exception to the rules either. Spamming rep in any form is not allowed. Said user may be reported validly. Reputation should never be used to enforce an argument. Sure, likes reserve the right to show you like or are in agreement with a post, but not to establish or force groups of people to support your standpoint, especially not if the argument or discussion caused is against the rules in the first place.
    15.1 Reputation System Enforcement
    We do not tolerate the incentive of abusing reputation in any of the above ways. Therefore, if staff considers your reputation to be in any way spamming, invalid or used in a way it should not be used, staff undeniably reserve the right to act and penalize users for said behavior. We will always give warning(s) in advance for this. Failure to adapt results in rep changes being nullified and penalties applying. This means staff can judge the intentions of your reputation points as they see fit. Feel free to contact the Moderators if you have issues with this, but they  reserve the right to refer to this rule and close the case that way. Therefore, use reputation at your own risk. Rule 9.1 may apply undeniably with no discussion possible.

    Dear Skylords, Skyladies, and other skyfolk,
    As you may know I've been here a long, long time. 12 years ago on the official forums, and pretty much ever since this project started. Over those years a lot has changed, for better and for worse. Both myself and some of the veterans around here have seen the game and its dev team rise and fall more often than we'd all like to admit, but we prevailed and we held on to Nyn and the wonders of this unique RTS/TCG hybrid. BattleForge has always been a great passion of mine, as a player and as a developer.
    But times change, and life changes, and as Skylords Reborn grew to the size and state that it is now, my own time had to be more and more divided. Graduation, running a full-time job, major changes in my personal life and thought processes, and the ongoing pandemic have greatly jumbled up my day-to-day life, my mind, and my available time and energy. This has had quite an impact on how well I can contribute to this project right now, and so I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't feel appropriate to be a part of the SR team for as little work as I'm able to get myself to contribute. 
    It's with a heavy heart I'm saying I am, on my own accord, stepping down from the SR team for the time being, but I feel that it's necessary. This is purely personal and has nothing to do with the current team, community, or the game itself; after all, we've accomplished so much, all of us! Thanks to all of you we've actually succeeded in what many thought to be utterly impossible; to revive an entire game purely out of passion, figuring out its inner workings, and altering it to make it a 100% free, enjoyable, non-profit game to keep enjoying despite the studio having long been disbanded. I've had the pleasure of working with an already fantastic community and team on a passion project others would dream of, and over time the team's grown so much.
    It's been fantastic working on Skylords for so long and the game and project still are very dear to me. Throughout the years I've learnt tremendously much and have helped to keep things afloat in both bright and darker times for the project; it's been a rollercoaster for all of us. But we got there! We got to a fantastic release and have a whole revitalised and excited team ready to support all of you for a long time to come! This project is now in better hands than I could ever have anticipated, and I am happy and confident to leave Skylords Reborn to some of the most capable people I've had the pleasure of meeting.
    I'll be stepping down after having been a long-time admin, CM, moderator and designer, and though I will keep providing some advice and help in the background, I will stop being a dev and remain a player. Perhaps I'll return if my personal life allows for it in the future, but as of right now I simply don't think I can contribute enough. 
    It's been an absolute honour being a part of BattleForge's development throughout well over a decade, and I want to thank everybody for their continued work, support and belief in the amazing things we've ended up accomplishing. That includes you, no matter how long you're here or if you even know me. We did it! I'm still so proud of all of us, and I am happy to know the project's in great hands. Keep up the amazing work and let the hype train rage ever onward.
    Thanks for everything, until next time, and may the Forge be ever with you!
