    Executor Rework

    Like a lot of people have said, Executor is not good because it's slightly worse at something that shadow is already good at. And t1 is very well balanced (esp fire vs shadow) so doing something like making executor an L counter would really upset that balance (because in early t1, fire needs to be careful of mass forsaken dropping a well, and in late t1 shadow needs to be careful of sunderer. In some situations the only way to "defend" a well is to counterrush and drop one of your opponent's). Giving the executor an interesting power is best as long as it's still below the average power level for shadow t1 cards. As long as you keep a 2 orb, 100 power limit, it wouldn't be THAT busted because I can't think of any powerful cards that it eliminates (sunderer, deep one, mountaineer all cost >100 power, so the strongest 100 power ground card is scythe fiends?). But still, I think it should only execute cards that have <50% hp remaining, and it should probably reduce the executor's hp by more than 300 (so that even a U0 eruption would reduce the health enough that the ability can't go off). More thematically, the executor could only execute cards that are cc'd? Ofc that's mostly making it good for doubles, but doubles balance is less fine-tuned than 1v1s.\\ EDIT: I forgot sunderer because 100 power at U3. yeah, in that case the limit should probably be like 90 power, which as I think about, basically really improves the nature matchup....

    The Stress Test Open#3 08.12.18

    To spread out the prizes, I would suggest running something that is known as "sections." In chess/battleforge once rankings are in, you can split the tournament into smaller sections based on ELO, so there is not such a high skill gap between players. I would suggest self-selected sections, with section A having prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and section B only having a prize for 1st, which is lower than the 3rd place prize. This way players can choose which section to be in, but there is a strong incentive to be in the top section, so only rookies would choose section B.

    Pure shadow pvp

    I'm guessing your 2 units are cultist master and ashbone pyro? TBH pure shadow t3 is not that good. Splashing with frost is much better. The rest though...are pretty mediocre. That said, shadow insect can be quite good with excellent micro. I've seen it in many shadow nature decks.

    Enable all cards for testing in the forge

    Well, there was definitely a tome system the prevented you from bringing non-tome cards into the tome match. Is it so much different to redefine the groups so that it things regular cards are "tome" and "testing cards" are not-tome?

    Enable all cards for testing in the forge

    Couldn't you utilize the way it was done in the final days? I.e. Utilize the "tome" feature and give all players all cards at U3, but then add some condition that forbids players from using tome cards ingame (or perhaps, in any game except sparring grounds). Just a thought.

    High Command latency

    I have pretty variable lag. It feels like it takes 300-500 ms on average, but there are definitely lag spikes that last a second or longer. I always just assumed it was because of the server distance... But definitely I sometimes have enough lag that I try to spawn units, but my ground presence moves too fast so the animation/sound starts like I'm going to spawn, and then it checks with the server and realizes I have no ground presence and no units come out. You can see something like that here at around 3:50--I try to spawn some sunstriders and the sound triggers, but then my scavenger walks too fast and they don't come out. My bigger issue is that sometimes it feels like packets are dropped, or I try to right click to attack and enemy and somehow it doesn't register that there is an enemy there, so my units walk instead.

    Archivements broken?

    I believe you need to play a minimum of 3 hours ingame (total) before you can unlock quests. So it's possible that you played less than 3 hours when they rolled in the implement?
  8. Baby steps! I haven't been able to convince my girlfriend to PLAY BattleForge yet, but she did agree to try to guess the names of the creatures!

    If you guys leave positive comments, I'm sure I'll be able to convince her to go in game...

      Not clickbait! I pulled directly from the video :)

      But yeah if you look at my analytics there is a huge spike of people just skipping to the Mo part to find out what happens.

    Stress Test Open#2(vs2) 17.11.18

    Well if it's a round robin, count me in. Who wants to carry me?

    Replay forum?

    @anonyme0273 is in charge of this I was going to buy a domain for him to host it on, but he said he was able to get webhosting on his own.
  11. @ImaginaryNumb3r I agree with your progression system. Nothing to add, far better than anything I could come up with. This is a whole other topic, widely debated and possibly the most-replied to thread on the forums (well, productive thread where people actually theorize). That monstrous thread has even spawned half a dozen other threads.

    Replay forum?

    Haha, the old day? Idk what anyone means by that anymore I can't possibly be remembered after 5 years. Unless you mean the old days of YouTube? People keep telling me that, but I actually still make videos...

    Stress Test Open#2(vs2) 17.11.18

    Um, what is the point of offering more than 1st place prize in a single elimination tournament? Imagine xHighTech and RadicalX played game 1 together in the last tournament. Despite them clearly being the 2 best, one of them would not get any prize.

    Replay forum?

    @anonyme0273 and I are (kinda) on the works for something like this... Haven't heard from the devs one way or another, so I guess I'll make a 3rd party website to host it...

    Christmas Challenge or Quest!

    I wonder if it should be something more unusual than that? Something like, "mail 50 bfp to 5 strangers." That would be in the Christmas spirit. There would probably be people who would try to scam the system by making deals with people and making sure they haven't added each other to friends or something, but I'm not sure how to make it fool-proof without an additional interface. Still, something like that would be nice. Or perhaps the quest might be something like "beat MAP X" without playing any cards. That way you would be dependent on other people for your quest. You'd have to team with them and let them carry you for the entire map.
