    Solo/duo/trio all-time fastest speedrun rankings

    We havent discussed this. Please help me understand, why is it any different than killing a goldwagon in Treasure Fleet to let the next one leave faster? Or when everyone in RPvE used the second chance bug to get an almost instant t4 army? Using this bug also will let you finish way faster than any experienced player who doesnt use the bug. Speedrunners in all games always used these 'glitches' to finish a game really fast, so why would we treat them any different? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speedrun

    Solo/duo/trio all-time fastest speedrun rankings

    The rule against bug abuse is intended for situations like when there was a bug in the AH where the seller would get the card (and the bfp) back instead of the buyer. There were some people actively abusing this bug to scam other players. The rule is not meant against ingame-bug-abuse for bugs that were also existing in the old 'EA' Battleforge. Like you mentioned yourself, there are already a lot of bugs that speedrunners use to complete maps and imo this is part of the speedrunning-game. So if it is an ingame-bug that was also possible in the old Battleforge, than it should be counted.

    Solo/duo/trio all-time fastest speedrun rankings

    A disconnected player should still count as a player imo. So if 4 people start a map and two players disconnect, it should still be counted as 4 players (else it could be easy to cheat by letting others disconnect just before the end).

    Solo/duo/trio all-time fastest speedrun rankings

    For 4 player maps I think '4 players' should be 'all', so if you are faster with 3 players it is also included in this list (so you have the full list). For 2 player maps the same.

    Custom maps collection

    If anyone wants to use old custom maps as inspiration for making a new one, I uploaded all custom maps I could find on my PC here.

    Reward distribution

    I think he meant that the game was started with 3 players. The leader left the game halfway, and he as non-leader had to assign rewards instead of the new leader. @LEBOVIN could you confirm please?
  11. Please keep it in English, else we wont be able to help you (it is also against the forum rules).

    3 - Trade sometimes doesnt work

    Name: Trade sometimes doesnt work Severity: 3 Location: Trade Window Reproducibility: 1/10, cant really pinpoint the problem Description: Chiaki and me were testing trade a bit. First I send him a card (waystation) through trade and it worked fine. After that he tried to send me the same card back but the buttons of our trade window got frozen. We were able to cancel the trade though. The card didnt show up on both our inventories until Chiaki relogged. After relog we were able to trade again.

    Loot List / card upgrades (2018)

    The community voted to spread upgrades based on the theme of the map+card (and not equal rarity), so that is what we did. The thread should still be around somewhere.

    Whispering Rework?

    Just thinking out loud here: Maybe a drop down before the chat input line which determines the channel you are talking too (instead of the '/whisper's, '/group's etc.). This way you at least always have a visual of where you are talking to and you can also easily change it. Also don't automatically switch the 'active' chat to a new region if your last message was a whisper, group or team/match chat (so basically only change it if your last chat was to a region you exited). An alternative could be to have an own input line for each chat tab. So the left one can only chat to whisper, group, team and match. And the right one can only talk to public, lfg, trade, regions. (Note that in-game these are 2 tabs).

    2 - No own ground unit nearby

    Are you sure that the problem is 'no ground presence' and not that you are trying to spawn something too close to the enemy? A live-video would be great to see the problem.

    Fan made content and promotionals

    A new article about Battleforge has been placed on gamer.nl: https://gamer.nl/artikelen/achtergrond/reload-battleforge/. It is in Dutch, but it basically says Battleforge was ahead of it's time and if it would have been released now it might have been very successful. They also mention our project as a fan revival project and they link to our forum.
  19. We started with the 'all-time rankings' after the last patch. So no runs with broken stampede or second chance are included.

    @RaptorToes Please upload the log.txt file again right after this bug happened. It gets overwritten each time you start the game so please upload it before you start the game again. And also please upload launcher.log from your batteforge install directory directly after the bug happened.

    In-game (not in forge) it shows in the upper left corner of your screen that it is active.

    Want to find out !!

    @Asgard57 I want to make one thing very clear, staff will never hand out server replays to anyone or use the replays for themselves. Most of the staff (including myself) dont even have access to the replays. Nevertheless, we dont like to be accused of such things!
  25. MephistoRoss

    All-time fastest speedrun rankings

    Agreed, I will update them this weekend and I will try to keep it updated (just pm me on the forum/discord when you did a new record). I hope we can add a feature to save/see the all-time rankings in-game also in the future.
