    Current Proposal: Tokens & Gold

    Thank you for your answers MrXLink. I think the biggest problem with the need+greed/assign/random system was that in combination with the small player base you could not always choose with whom (or with which reward distribution system) you would play a map with as your only options would be to join the one existing game of an unknown host for a certain map or create your own game and wait for a very long time to be able to start. So it wasnt an exception that you would join a game from an unknown host (where he choose the assign option) and after completing the map, the host would assign all the possible upgrades to himself (discard the rest) and leaves the group asap. This caused many irritations with the rest of the group of course. And yes, with the mostly nice community we have in Battleforge, this still happened quite often. A possible solution for this could be that the 'assign' option would only be possible to select by the host when all (or 2/3) of the other players have the host as a friend in-game and else only the need/greed and random options are available. However, a client modification might be needed for something like this, so we will need to hear from the Devs first to know what the server involvement is with this system. For example, does the host client send the chosen option to the server at the start of the game and does the server send it back after completing the map? This would make it possible to override the chosen system with need/greed for example when the other players have not be-friended the host. But if the host client saves the chosen option and uses it after the game to let the host player assign the upgrades and only sends to the server who gets which reward, it will be more difficult. But in this case a possible solution could still be that the server always gives all upgrades to all players who completed the map (if they didnt have the upgrade already) instead of to just one player independent of which distribution system was chosen. This will also speed up getting the upgrades (which I am sure some players would love), therefore I think the upgrades that you already have should not be discarded with this solution as that would speed up getting upgrades even more. The downside of the first solution I mentioned in this post might be that a host with good intentions cant always select the assign option, so I leave it to the staff to decide if that would be worth it or not. A last possible solution for which no client modification is needed whatsoever could be not to change the upgrade distribution system but to encourage players to report lame hosts who take all the upgrades for themselves and setup a punishment protocol for the Mods to take away for example 10 upgrades from that host.

    Wanted: BFR Company Manager

    You are right, but I assumed that some of the staff members will also take part in the board as they will want to have some control of the foundation of course.

    Wanted: BFR Company Manager

    Setting up a non-profit foundation is actually not that hard, keeping the books properly is. In the Netherlands for example you will need to set up statutes (which include the goal of the foundation, how the board is (re)assigned/fired and what happens with the money of the foundation when the foundation stops). You will have to consult a notary to gain a notarial deed (yes, this will cost some money). With these statutes you can register at the Chamber of Commerce and you will have a non-profit foundation. The next step would be to setup a bank account in the name of the foundation. And here comes the hardest part, as a non-profit foundation you will need to maintain the books and fully open them to the tax authorities when requested. This needs to be done properly (preferable checked by an accountant) as there could be serious penalties when done wrong. Although a non-profit foundation will have its own capital seperated from the board members capital, there will still be (financial) risks for the board members as they could be held liable in certain cases.

    Community Question

    If you dont count soloing a multiplayer map (in that case solo Bad Harvest was my favourite), Treasure fleet is my favourite single player map.

    Keeping the server online?

    The staff cant sell anything as it is not theirs to sell. All rights of the game are still with EA. So if the staff would decide to sell anything in-game, EA most likely wont be happy and will force them to stop it or even demand all the revenues that has been made with their game. So donations is the only way to get help for financing the server.

    Lootlist update with Amii edition

    I have edited my first post as I no longer think the old lootlist was fine.

    Lootlist update with Amii edition

    I have a suggestion for the upgrades of the Amii edition. In the old Battleforge you could only gain Amii edition upgrades by using tokens. It would be great if these upgrades would also be added to the PvE maps lootlist so that you can also earn them by playing the normal maps (like the other upgrades). Edit 13-9-2015 (after MrXLink proposal of tokens & gold): Since tokens will be removed, the Amii edition upgrades maybe could be added as rewards for the Battlegrounds (as Treim suggested). Also the old Lootlist really had some imbalance with ultra rares, rares, uncommons, commons rewards for each map. Because with the discard ability you would gain a higher amount of gold the more rare an upgrade is, the amount of gold that could be earned by discarding rewards is imbalanced between the maps. Therefore, I would suggest redistributing the rewards based on map difficulty and average time needed to complete it so that more difficult maps like Blight would have more Ultra rares than an easy map like Passage to Darkness for example. Another solutions for this could be to disable the 'discard reward' feature, especially if it becomes easier to earn upgrades as suggested here: http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/840-upgrades-distribution-tweak/.

    Current Proposal: Tokens & Gold

    First of all I would like to say that I like the proposal to remove tokens, make gold more important and make gold untradable. Thank you for explaining it in detail MrXLink. I think the gold rewards for each PvE map will also need to be rebalanced since gold will become more important. Passage to Darkness used to be the map to gain the most gold while it was a very easy map on expert, in fact the hardest part was getting 12 players together without any disconnects. In my opinion the gold should be rebalanced based on the difficulty and average time it takes to complete the map so that for example Ascension or Blight will let you earn more gold than Passage to Darkness. One of the causes of the difference in gold rewards between PvE maps was the ability to discard card upgrade rewards in which Ultra rare upgrades would reward a lot more gold than rare upgrades for example. And since some map had a lot Ultra rare upgrades (Passage to Darkness) while other maps would mostly have common upgrades this caused a huge difference between the maps. This could be solved by either redistributing the upgrade rewards or by removing/changing the discard feature. In the http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/840-upgrades-distribution-tweak/ thread I suggested to change the need/greed, random, assign mechanic so that all players who completed the map would always gain all the (four) upgrade rewards. Another suggestion that was made in that thread is that you always would gain one upgrade of the lootlist of that map that you dont already have. If one of these suggestions would be implemented, I dont think the discard feature would really be needed anymore as you will have a high chance of getting usefull rewards already. I agree that RPvE will need some new rewards when the tokens are removed, if it is possible to add the Amii Edition upgrades to RPvE, that would solve two issues at once. Else I agree that the gold amount could be increased a bit for RPvE. Especially if the discard function of upgrades in normal PvE maps would be removed, RPvE could be made a good source of getting gold in PvE. For PvP, the gold rewards should be increased too so that it will be somewhat equal to the gold rewards by playing (R)PvE (so that PvP players will be able to earn upgrades without being forced to play PvE). I agree, since the elements would just be a way to earn gold quicker by spending some BFP. So it would actually just be an indirect way to convert BFP into gold.

    how do you make maps more symmetrical?

    I posted all tutorials for the map editor here: http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1278-map-editor-tutorials/ There were several tutorials on how to edit the terrain, I hope they can be of some help to you to answer your question.

    30 Second Teaser of the Trailer

    Nicely done. I think it is a great representation of this project as the Juggernaut tries to get out of his card (= old Battleforge), but he fails and gets destroyed (= Battleforge is closed), but still he manages to come alive again (= Battleforge Reborn).

    Custom maps

    yes, this is possible. You won't be able to test your map though as you need to get in the game for that. Take a look at http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1064-map-editor-activation-guide/ for how to get the map editor and get it working.

    Battleforge i missed you

    I just wanted to add that the alpha will only consist of the forge and social features. So even if you get selected for the alpha, you won't be able to play any PvP or PvE games.

    Dementia Setting in Need a confirmation

    If I remember correctly, PvE has 1, 2, 4 and 12 player maps. (The 12 player maps are actually 3 4-player maps linked to eachother. ) PvP has 1vs1, 2vs2 and 3vs3 (3vs3 not ranked and no 4vs4) . With custom maps it was possible to make even different types of maps (with max 6 players). For example PvPvE.

    I think it is best to just link to the two summaries as you did the same with the guides (http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/898-guide-navigation-new-players-come-here-for-all-your-needs/). Else your thread will also become too big for having a good overview I think. But it is your choice.

    Amii Expansion

    I haven't joined this discussion yet because I am not really sure what to do with Amii Monument as I see both pros and cons to keep or nerf/remove it. But since the Devs have asked our opinion about this topic, I will give it a go: Normally I would say that balancing only should be done for PvP as something can only be over-powered when the costs of countering it are for most factions higher than the OP card itself. With this in mind, something can never be over-powered in PvE as you dont counter anything from another player. In PvE some cards can just make it easier to complete the map, but that is part of the core of how the game works. However, I think Amii Monument might be the exception to my rule as it doesnt make 'killing camp X' easier but it allows you to actually skip 'killing camp X' (for example because you don't need the orb behind it anymore). When Amii monument was introduced, I was a casual PvE player and I thought the challenge of PvE Expert maps would totally dissappear, especially with 1-player maps. And for some maps it really did as Amii Monument allowed you to skip whole parts of them. For example in The Soultree you could skip the whole end-fight as the victory condition is building a T5 orb which could be easily done with Amii Monument. Now of course you can always say that you can decide yourself not to play with Amii Monument, but in practice I (and I think many players) rarely played the 1-player maps without Amii Monument while in fact I wouldnt have minded the challenge. Fortunate, I was found an extra challenge in speedrunning, but I am sure not everybody will enjoy it as much as I did. With speedrunning, Amii Monument also had a real purpose as it enabled us to play some tactics that never would have been possible without it. For example playing Bad Harvest in under 3 minutes or The Insane God in under 6 minutes. It would be a shame if Amii Monument would get banned/nerfed so that these kind of tactics wont be possible anymore, but still it is not something that cant be overcome as there will always be a new fastest way for each map. In fact, removing/nerfing Amii Monument will actually give speedrunners a new challenge for many maps to find new fastest tactics. Still, it would be a shame that those really amazing fast times will not be possible anymore. The second purpose that I found in Amii Monument is to enable players to solo multiplayer maps. As far as I know, nobody was ever able to solo Bad Harvest without Amii Monument for example. Although I think most maps can also be solo'ed without Amii Monument, but it will just take more time. I think less people would go for the solo challenge without Amii Monument though. So to recap, I would love to be forced to fight for the actual T4 orb instead of skipping map parts, but I hate that it would mean some speedrun and solo tactics wont be possible anymore (since I cant think of a nerf that would do the first without having influence on speedrun/solo tactics). As was said, increasing the power cost wont really nerf it, it will just slow players down a bit. Unless the power is increased to an insane amount where you wouldnt have much power left for enough T4 units/spells, but I dont think that is a good idea either. Making Amii monument T4 might also miss its purpose because it would only cause people to combo it with enlightenment, so the actual nerf would be that it would require 2 nature orbs, an extra card slot + a bit extra power when spawning it. The nerf I would prefer atm (if I had to choose any) is that Amii Monument's effect would last only for x seconds (for example 30 seconds) each time you activate it so you can only use it for short periods (with a cool down of 120 seconds for example or even longer). Although this will probably result in something like enlightenment but with the difference that you can spawn multiple cards within the set time and you are still bound to the orb requirements. The question remains if this nerf would be hard enough because with some saved up power you still could spawn several T4 units while being only T3. But with this nerf you wont be able to use T4 spells as support and you cant spawn more T4 units when they died which will still encourage you to conquer the real T4 monument. (this won't solve the Soultree problem though, but maybe that map can be adjusted so it won't count amii monument as victory condition). For now I say just leave Amii Monument as it was in the game to keep the cards 100% the same as at the end of the old Battleforge. But my opinion could easily change as I also see reasons to nerf it.

    Developmental Update Statements from Chatbox.

    Thanks, but the first post has become a bit of mess to be honest. Maybe you could change all updates to the same formatting and structure them a bit. For example by making the date and developer of each post bold/underlined so you can easily see where each new update starts.

    Battleforge Reborn - Action trailer!

    Nice job with transforming https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhOm5XlITYo into a Battleforge Reborn trailer. I like what you did at the end to switch from the Battleforge logo to the Reborn logo during the flash.
