    UPDATE: BFP Reserves and Boosters

    A bit off topic here as a reply to an announcement, I think it would be better if you create a separate topic for it
  2. Hey folks, Disclaimer: I have tried this method/installation and not managed to make it work, so I’m counting on some Mac genius out there to make it work and perhaps would be willing to make some sort of video guide that would be very(!!) helpful for those of us who aren’t apt with computers. I have some exciting news to share to you. I have received information that @Fahrazoid has succeeded in running Skylords reborn updater(and therefore BattleForge) via wine! He has been nice enough to pass along the instructions so that you fans on Mac out there can enjoy BattleForge too! Without further ado here are the instructions! You need to paste the lines enclosed by [] to the terminal! Do not include the [] themselves. 1 (optional). Install brew. I believe it would be easier for major amount of users to complete package installation steps via brew. It is simple package manager: https://brew.sh/ 2. Install wine and winetricks via brew: brew install wine brew install winetricks 3. Create wine 32-bit PREFIX. Prefix - simply is the directory for wine 'virtual windows', based on 32-bit system. (Its good, that launcher was patched to work on x32 ): [WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 WINEARCH=win32 winecfg] (This creates a hidden directory under User, called .wine32, which includes all the C drive and Program Files stuff and opens configuration window) 4. In configuration window set the Default Settings to Windows 10 version and apply changes. Be aware, that winecfg has to be opened under 32 prefix. If it was accidently closed after 3rd step: [WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg] (first part of this command states, which prefix has to be used) 5. Copy all the unpacked files of Battle Forge and Skylords Launcher preferably into the 32 PREFIX folder, into the Program Files. After all the steps were done, i had this setup: ~/.wine32/drive_c/Program Files/BattleForge (all the files were in this folder) 6. Install dotnet461 via winetricks under the 32 PREFIX - It is.NET [WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winetricks dotnet461] 7. Install vcrun2010, vcrun2012, vcrun2013, vcrun2015 the same way - It is Microsoft Visual [WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winetricks vcrun2010 (and repeat for other versions)] 7.B. Repeat 4th step. Change back Windows version to Windows 10 because installation of dotnet461 changed it. Without this step the launcher was crashing. [WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg] 8. After installation completes, you can try to run Skylordsreborn Updater (of course under 32 PREFIX), but before you should cd to the BattleForge folder: cd ~/.wine32/drive_c/Program\ Files/BattleForge WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 wine SkylordsRebornUpdater.exe Let me know if it works for you, or any problems you encounter in this thread
  3. Discord is a social messaging platform, much like Skype, with an emphasis as a platform “for gamers”. It’s also atm our most active platform. I meant pming us there. If you don’t use discord, I guess forums is fine, however it will have slower response time due to a lack of a good notification system
  4. @chickennoodler As people said, please report ingame with /report playername reason. If it’s something more urgent, you can also pm ModMail #5460 on discord or pming a online Global Moderator. Also refrain from publicly reporting another person, even with the right screenshots and everything.

  18. Some good stuff in this thread. Just gonna add my two cents here: There's a lot of comparison going on with the new and old system, but the fact of the matter is, there was barely an "old system". It was purely supposed to be a placeholder, with accelerated progression and rewards as expressed in the booster in 30 mins that was just arbitrarily created without much thought. Alas, with how the project progress turned out, and bigger priorities, we had that up as a placeholder for way too long, that now it feels like a standard that you compare new things to. Secondly, you are comparing the new rewards with the current market prices, which is a fallacy in itself, because it is generated from the old economy with the old system. There's alot of people who have acquired all the cards they could have wanted, and do not actively participate in the market place anymore, decreasing the supply of cards, causing hyperinflation of prices, and a certain monopoly in some cards, where new sellers can set whatever price they want, which generates alot of fluctuation. This economy could for example look drastically different with a reinvigorated playerbase, and a healthy marketplace environment. Thirdly, similarly with calculating the "worth of a booster" is a very delicate thing, since that too depends on the supply and demand of a card. As prices rise in AH, a booster will also rise in value, which should stimulate more people to buy boosters. Pure boosters should not be easily dismissed for this reason, as alot of pure cards are also very high in value. We need to make some kind of price difference between all cards boosters and specific boosters or no one would buy the other. Now the actual price difference itself is still very much up for debate of course. I hope i shed some light on some matters, and implore you guys not to give up on us yet! This is the very first iteration of a brand new untested system. Please don't be too harsh with us!

    A serious concern

    There are many systems of catch-up mechanics that are in place that mean you don't need to play everyday, and will still earn BFP at a decent amount. We however also have to take into account, that players who play everyday feels sufficiently rewarded for doing so, to keep server population and therefore player engagement high. Also, there exists no hardcap on BFP earnings in the new system. All those changes are now live in the test server. The issue right now is, we need to have a batch update with all these new features to the live server, or we risk the whole server breaking, if we forget some file dependencies etc.

    Test server Ultra Major Update

    Hello Skylords, Hope everyone is doing well. As promised, here is the test-server update planned for this week. We are really excited for this update as it contains many bug fixes, big features like 2vs2 and 12 player maps, and quality of life improvements. We would really appreciate it if you guys could test this update, because a lot changed and it would be very good to be reassured our changes are working as intended. The .zip in #dev-updates-test-server contains the files for this update as well as the new launcher. Just move all of the contents of this .zip file to your game directory (where you also have BattleForge.exe) and overwrite any files if it asks. The new launcher automatically loads the correct game files, so you can seemingly switch between test server and production server without having to move the files yourself. Hopefully this improvement makes it less cumbersome to play on both servers. The changelog can be seen below. We will be looking forward to hearing what you guys think of this update! Download Here:Click Features - You can now play 2vs2 ranked matches. Also added leaderboard for 2vs2 matches. - You can now play 12 player matches. Also added leaderboard for 12 player matches. Keep in mind 12 player matches only reward gold. - Adjusted required ranks for purchasing upgrades. The required ranks are 1, 4 and 5 for upgrade 1, 2 and 3, and is the same for all rarities. The required rank can either be your PvE rank, or your highest PvP rank. - You can now view and select the decks you most recently used for a map in the lobby via the 'Suggested Decks' button. - You are now able to navigate in the map selection screen (PvP and Community PvE) with your arrow keys. - You can now watch replays at x16 and x32 speed. - You can now click on cards (the images) in the marketplace in order to play them in the forge. - Replaced the "Manual" button with a "Wiki" button in the news section. - Improved UI and feedback when trying to upload community maps. More improvements to this will be added at a later stage. - Added /match chat. General fixes - Minor fixes for the new BFP system. - Fixed many group and match bugs. - Resolved some causes of getting stuck in the loading screen. - Fixed trade button tooltip saying the player accepted the trade while he did not. - Fixed german version of the promo from booster notification message. - Fixed ranged attack symbols not displayed for fire cards at higher resolutions. - Fixed replays of community maps not showing in the replays menu in certain cases. - Drastically improved performance of the upgrade tab. - Minor general improvements to the story book. - Fixed a minor issue with trying to upload PVP community maps. - Fixed players in the ignore list not properly showing their location and status.(edited) - Fixed BFP desync when bidding more than the buyout on a card in the auction house. - Fixed incorrect error feedback when setting the bid amount to less than 2 on a card for the auction house. - Removed login button from the escape menu. - Fixed selected map in the create a game window not always being remembered properly between opening and closing the window for PvP and Community maps. Card Changes - Balance changes: https://skylords-reborn.fandom.com/wiki/Balancing - Added missing ability "Siege" to Skycatcher card description. - Improved card description of Juice Tank. - Added range to Area Ice Shield card description. - Fixed wrong damage on card description of Northern Keep (Blue). - Various other minor additions, updates and fixes (like typo's). Known issues - Although 2vs2 works, there are some issues with properly updating the players within the group (Team1, Team2, Unteamed). Sometimes the players will have a "?" as their avatar too. This should work fine for all other modes. - 2vs2 currently provides wrong amount of ELO for a match. - Sometimes you may hear a (windows) error sound. We have yet to find the cause for this, but we did notice it seems to happen more frequently when opening the news section. The game seems to work fine, but please let us know if you think you found a way to reproduce this. - Rerolling quests might sometimes not work.
