  1. fiki574 liked a post in a topic by ulvfdfgtmk in Won PvP match - lost elo   
    NAME: Losing elo after winning a PvP match
    DESCRIPTION: Pretty self explanatory in the name, I just won a PvP match but got 163 elo points taken away. Now IF (!) memory serves right I think this was possible in the old bf aswell, but I´m not certain on this. However even if it was possible I´d still find it a bit odd to happen here as my opponent was only 2 PvP ranks below me. Btw my opponent lost elo aswell, don´t know if that´s important to know.
    REPRODUCIBILITY: It´s the first time I noticed this happening but will have an eye out for it to occur again in the future. In most games I win I do receive additional elo.
    SCREENSHOT/VIDEO: Well I could provide the after match screenshot here but since it doesn´t indicate who won the match it´s probably not of much use. However I´m going to attach the replay of said match.
    LOG: Attached.
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: I just watched the replay again and noticed that he had a higher rating than me, however he conceded. Wanted to mention it since this might be part of the problem.

    You are completely right. It was in the heat of the moment and I got carried away...
    I sincerely apologize to the people who are still doing all the maintenance, bugfixing and all other aspects that we don't notice from the outside. And it seems like there is actually some progress in making balancing changes for the better.
    Thank you @Devs

    In fact community is split between those who play and those who dont want to play before wipe.

    This is a known issue. I reported it with a video. If you are still in a pvp group and you create a pve lobby the game will crash.

    With the new reward over time mechanic like on test server it will only count the time you play no matter what. If I understand correctly. What's awesome for communitymaps, since they give bfp then too. 
    Zorscy and me work on a defencive rpve mode atm where u have to defend vs random fraction.
    Kind Regards

    A developer commented on this but it seems the comment has been taken down. However, I completely agreed with the statement - I don't think it is fair for us as bystanders to criticize people who've poured their heart and soul into a project for years without expecting anything in return.
    They have done an amazing job reviving this game and even though I strongly disagree with some of the things they do ('nostalgia before balance' and the heavily delayed launch when we don't exploit this window of opportunity for major game changes) I still think they deserve all the support and praise we can possibly give (through patreon or otherwise)

    Statements like this are coming almost exclusively from people who want to shove their weight around. There are dozens of games that have ladders for multiplayer matching and are wiped every now and then. Yet people still play these games, even if they have to re-invest up to hundreds of hours. 
    The game requires a steady time of like 4-5 hours per week to receive boosters and manage to play a mission or two, or a couple of pvp matches. It's literally not much more than playing CS GO at this point.
    Considering this fact it's likely you won't start playing even after a wipe either. Just like all the tards from reddit who are talking about the "glorious days back then". They just talk about the game but won't play it anyways.

    Based on wiki facts that you posted, reverse engineering does involve taking code from software, or any project source code, and making adjustments to establish improvements, or understanding the purpose of the code, should there be any provided at all. In which case we are both correct, but according to what you're saying, you have nothing on terms of coding that was applied to Battleforge when EA had it, otherwise I wouldn't be missing anything from what I've already pointed out. This is all good to know, and at least the suggestions are here if they ever get implemented into this game. Otherwise, I'm enjoying the collaboration involving my own game design project, and some popular youtube streamers involved as well who I met at a Pax event a few years ago. From what I can tell though, there just won't be time to do what I've suggested, and maybe you'll do your own similar project to this, once you're finished with Battleforge, so additional content seems unlikely at this point beyond touching up already existing mechanics.
    Fair enough, and understandable. Furthermore, what I pointed out was the difference between a developer, and the game designer, since I was asked to do the coding of the suggestions, but the game designer designs the foundation through conceptual design and illustrations, in order to establish how everything is intended to turn out. Simply put, the designer works with the developer, and I'm a game designer, but I don't have time to work on Battleforge myself, therefore I posted my knowledge of improvements that can be made.
    At the end of the day, it's about pitching the projects effectively to investors, or opening our own business to have complete control over the process of the projects. Something I've prepared my projects for, and goodluck with yours as well!

    We all freelancers, doing this in free time, with no source code. We had to reverse engineer binaries for over 2 years to be able to pull some of the updates you already see on the server. It's not matter of weeks or a month as everything we'd like to do takes enormously large amount of time due to the lacking of source code.

  13. MrXLink liked a post in a topic by fiki574 in Announcement: Kubik's departure and progress going forward   
    "Team chose MrXLink" - I'm refering to this, no one chose anyone because you were constantly interrupting the discussion with "who leaves, me or you", refusing to even remotely try to sort things out in the almost 3h long meeting, when we all finally got together and started more indepth talks. You're again making it look like you're innocent and was forced out, when in fact you voluntarily left without anyone chosing MrX or picking sides. I'm pretty sure everyone stated they would not be picking sides, everyone wanted to sort this out. Well, everyone except you.
    I also don't understand what's your play with this, win over people so you can take shots at us even more?
    Here's a statistic for you: I know only of a one single developer that caused this much drama and aftermath after, what looked like, normal parting ways.
  14. fiki574 liked a post in a topic by Shalade in Announcement: Kubik's departure and progress going forward   
    I agree that it is pretty rough to see these kind of discussions out in the wild, instead of sticking to private channels, but I understand the reaction coming from the moderation team, given that Kubik, from what I've read both in Discord and in the forums in the last months, is prone to beginning arguments and pointing fingers with no form of etiquette, throwing any professional speech off the figurative window.
    Excluding the work he has done in the project, it is normal to have creative discrepancies with other team members, especially when comes to a game that a lot of this community loves and appreciates, but throwing a tantrum at every step of the way, and doing so in public channels, with no regards to the rest of the team's opinion, is unprofessional, and paints the development team in a really bad light, let alone asking the team itself to choose between two of its members.
    It's unheard of in other game restoration projects, and of course unacceptable in any development team in any company in the world.

    You called out MrX for lying and deceiveing, and now you're doing it yourself. Just as you would say, dictionary definition of a hypocrite.
    We didn't choose anything, you just refused any kind of discussion before one of you leaves.
  17. fiki574 liked a post in a topic by MrXLink in Happy Easter! A little help to endure the lockdowns   
    Heya Skylords, Skyladies, and other Skyfolk,
    Spring festivities are upon us again, and this year it's a rather strange one for all of us. With global lockdowns and measures taking place against COVID-19, millions of people are currently in self-isolation at home. For those who have recently discovered Skylords Reborn, or even for those long-time veterans who want to complete their collections, we're going to giving everyone 5 boosters to endure the grind a little better in these trying times. Use them as you wish; perhaps you'll be able to try out something new, perhaps it'll give you that well-needed collection or economic boost, perhaps it's just a fun time opening them! 
    Of course, Easter time is something not to be forgotten, and so we're also giving all of you an Easter Egg card, as the tradition goes. You can find these gifts in your in-game mailbox to redeem and spread the happiness with!
    In the meantime, now more than ever are we trying our best to get the game and the ever-awaited reset to you as soon as possible. Despite the current circumstances, we've actually been increasing progress speed in the past few weeks and we've got some solid ideas and improvements planned to head your way in the near future. We're getting there, Skyfolk, and we're going strong.
    Be sure to stay tuned for further developments, updates, and status reports coming your way soon! We've got much in the pipeline.
    Please do remember to stay safe, stay inside, maintain your distance, and look out for yourselves and those in need in these awkward but ever so important times.
    Enjoy your rewards, stay tuned, and as always, Nyn is ready for you to be ruled and protected!
    ~The SR Team

  22. fiki574 liked a post in a topic by LEBOVIN in 12-player maps transformation to 4-player community maps   
    Hello there,
    currently, the old 12-player scenarios Ascension and Passage to Darkness are disabled due to synchronization problems. In fact, these 12 player scenarios were not actually maps with 12 players but each just three connected four-player maps. I will try to make independent four-player scenarios out of them, thus create 3 individual maps out of Ascension + 1 out of Passage to Darkness.
    As of right now, Passage to Darkness already works. Remember that the audio instructions by Moon may not be correct as there are no longer any connected maps and you are alone in Western Akylos. Just as back then, the two main goals are to first destroy all Shrines and then all living Aspects. Fortunately, the Wrath of the Souls is not targeting you.

    You can download the original version of the map in-game. Along with it comes also a modification Emmaerzeh and I created, which makes the scenario a little tougher. In order to play either of those make sure to have only one of the respective .pak files in your map folder at a time.

    Many thanks to Emma, Mephisto, and Kubik.
    Best regards, 
    LEBOVIN
