    We are not allowed to give anything in game (this includes cosmetics) as a form of a Patreon reward as we do not own the game, it goes against the law.

    Hello gemeiner Lauch,
    As this is a suggestion on something to add to the game I have moved it to the Suggestions part of the forums

    This was a very important decision for the project, especially with release around the corner. I am happy to be able to lead it alongside Zyna and I am looking forward to what the future will bring us.

    Hi everyone!
     
    5 years ago, I started this project alongside Blank, it's been a fantastic journey so far, I'm so happy that we managed our goal, which was to play this awesome game again, with you all! I won't lie, it's been hard, we didn't sleep much, it was all in our free time, but in the end, it was worth it, I don't regret any second I've spent on this project. But as some of you know already, I've stepped down a bit from the project, and I focused on my main indie-dev activity, to create my own games. The whole team did a fantastic job maintaining it, and we've progressed a lot since then, to a point where we're closer than ever to official release!
     
    But.. all things must come to an end (not the project, don't worry) - But I'm officially taking a step back from this project, starting today. I'll still be around in the back, to help the team if needed, I'll do some paperwork mostly, but other than that, I won't be here with you guys! But don't worry, I'll leave you in good hands.
     
    @Ladadoos & @Zyna are taking the lead of this project! They've shown great support & motivation within the years, and I'm confident that they'll handle this project very well!
     
    Future is bright Skylords! I hope I'll see you all again someday, I've loved talking with all of you, playing with all of you! This project meant and will always mean a lot to me, love you guys! (I won't cry)
     
    See you! ♥

    Greetings, Skylords, Skyladies and other Skyfolk!

    We hope you're as excited about the upcoming release in Q4 2020 as we are!
    In light of this, we recently had some discussions about our internal team structure and decided that there need to be changes.
    As some of you might have noticed, in recent years our administrators InsaneHawk, MrXLink, Blank, and our Lead Developer fiki574, have taken more of a background role. They did a great job in the past and they will continue to help out the project and the team as before!

    However, we decided that these roles should be fulfilled by the more active staff members, more specifically Ladadoos and Zyna, who will be taking over as Administrators and Lead Developers of the project. Blank and InsaneHawk will from now on be listed under the "Founder" role. They were the ones who started the project back in 2015, and without them all of us wouldn't be here today. They will continue to help out the project, but will take more of a background role from now on. MrXLink will continue his work as a Designer. Our former lead developer fiki574 will now be working as an all-round developer.

    Our moderation team will also be undergoing some changes. We will be retiring Ragenarok from our moderation team, since he has become inactive. We are grateful for his past work and wish him the best in his future endeavours! Additionally, our moderators MephistoRoss and Dexirian have moved away from their moderator role in recent years. Dexirian has been fulfilling the role of a System Administrator, therefore he will now be listed among our Developers. MephistoRoss has been doing a lot of important work concerning progression, rewards, and other game features. Because of that, he will, in addition to his moderation role, from now on officially be one of our Designers. The new roles will look like this:
    ADMINISTRATORS - The SR CEOs. They represent and lead the project.

    Ladadoos
    Zyna
    FOUNDERS - The two founders of the project. They started it all and without them Skylords Reborn would not exist.
    Blank
    InsaneHawk
    MODERATORS - Take care of the forums, discord & game, help to keep them clean and enforce these Rules. They can be contacted for forum or community-related issues. Some Moderators are Global, meaning they take care of all platforms, whereas some are assigned to a specific platform. If you have any issues with a moderator specifically, contact an admin. 

    Kiwi MephistoRoss
    Scourge (Forum only) Ultrakool   DISCORD MODERATORS - Similar to Global Moderators, they specifically make sure our Discord Server is a nice place for everyone to be and talk with others! It's a great responsibility since it's the most active community platform we handle. Can be contacted for any Discord related issues.
      Bucky sh0rt DESIGNER - Staff specifically hired to create new game designs, mechanics and systems. Think of balance, reward systems, new content, cards, and so on. While it should be noted that all staff members have input on design, designers were specifically taken into the team for this, and have a degree of expertise/experience. Can be contacted for design concerns, feedback and explanation.
     
    MrXLink
    MephistoRoss
    2D ARTIST - Makes 2D art for Skylords Reborn. Currently makes the beautiful Patreon-exclusive monthly BF concept art, launcher art, and may add visual content to the project in the future.

    NanoRhino
    DEVELOPERS - Programmers responsible for back-end management and SR development, such as coding, creating a proper website for BattleForge account management (used for BFP, account data, and other profile tools), and other ways to accelerate and improve the project.

    Ladadoos
    Zyna

    Aviat0r (All-Round Developer)
    fiki574 (All-Round Developer)
    freund17 (Web Developer)
    Dexirian (System Administrator)

    We will soon be looking for new volunteers to help out the project in other departments, so be on the lookout for any announcements in that regard. If you have any questions about this decision, feel free to contact us!
    We thank everyone for their continued support, and hope that we can all see each other in the forge!

  9. Ultrakool liked a post in a topic by Kiwi in How to report a player?   
    Hello,
    When you report a player using the in-game report function it gives members of the moderation team the time which you sent that report, so as long as you send it around the same time something transpires we should be able to locate the messages needed. However if you happen to report someone a few hours or days afterwards if you could a date and a rough time that is highly helpful for us. You are more than welcome to private message a member of the moderation team on here or on our discord or even use mod mail that you can access on our Discord where you can send any print screens you wish provide us with (if you have any) as they may also help in  investigations. I would like to thank you for your time in helping me and the moderation team make the Skylords Reborn community a nice play to relax and have fun.

    Your name was changed on our forums for being "UltraCock" not "BigTits" and your in game name was changed to "Bigs" from "BigTits" because many people reported it for being offensive. There is over 63,000 members in our community and staff work in their spare time, unfortunately we can't spend hours upon hours going through every single members details to make sure their names both in game and forums meet our community guidelines that is why we have an ingame reporting system for such a thing.
    As for tit not even being a word, there are six species of bird that all are classed as "tits". You can also see that tit has many different meanings in the English language at these following links:

    My name "Kiwi" actually comes from the first two letters "Ki" from my first name and the first two letters "Wi" from my last name and together it just happens to make "Kiwi" it's also a nickname I've had for the last ten years or so. I also have several friends from New Zealand who don't find it offensive. Kiwi is not only a fruit and what people from New Zealand are often called but it is also an extremely endangered adorable and flightless bird, which happens to be one of my favorite animals.

    I am the member of the moderation team who hid some of the comments due to them being reported multiple times for being homophobic. We want this forum and the game itself to be as friendly and polite as possible, clearly those who reported these comments are offended by what was said and I acted upon that. I didn't post a comment here as I was trying to find the right words to explain as it has this is a sensitive subject, it doesn't matter what a person identifies themselves as, as long as they're happy and healthy.

    I can understand that someone really wants the game to come out without progress reset. The loot count and table won't change as far as i have read it. The point of not doing it is for the sake of PVP for balancing non cheat fair games (I may be incorrect, sry in that case). I don't want to play PVP. I don't want to play with random people, because I got some friends that will never cheat and i plan playing only with them PVE. The reset is not good for me and my friends that are waiting and want to start after no more reset.
    But if i keep thinking that way i go full ego mode. The devs have a reason. They can't and won't make decisions for some individual, but for the sake of the whole game that they are working on unpaid for. If I want it another way the answer is: Do it yourself! And i won't be able to it. And without you devs i would never be able to play this great game ever again. Yeah i have to wait, yeah i don't like it but that's my personell problem. There will be people that want to play PVP and this game mode will be bad and frustrating if it is full of cheater. I have to respect that, even if i don't care to play it. Decisions can't be made only for me but for the whole. Keep up your good work devs i keep on waiting for release
