  1. Damo liked a post in a topic by Volin in 4p rpve Contest#2 - The Stonekin Hunt   
    Hello Skyladies, Skylords and other Skybeings,

    Over a year has passed since our successful bandit hunt, but unfortunately we have to ask for your help once again.
    It seems that some of the unopened gold chests have been taken away by some Stonekin scum, it is of utmost importance to secure them as quickly as possible.

    So What is the Task?
    It is almost like the bandit hunt – it was simple, it was fun – let’s do that once again:
    play rPvE/Battlegrounds 4player, Map of the Month, difficulty 9 only pure color decks are allowed every player has to play a different color open every gold chest on the map be as fast as possible (map completion) no legendary/neutral cards allowed this time your replay must be a victory  
    How Can I Participate?
    The contest is running from now on until the 26.03.2023 - 23:59 CET

    You just have to send in your best replay, including the player names and the time, to @Volin either via PM or preferably via Discord (Volin#8101).

    Please name your Replay in the format: Mins_seconds_Player1_Player2_Player3_Player4.pmv (Example: "13_37_Ultralord_nukie_Kapo_Volin.pmv")
    If your team has a name for meme, or whatever reason, just let me know via PM. It is important that all members of the team agree!
    It is enough that one player of the group sends me the replay!
    How to find the replay on your PC
    Sounds Fun, What Are the Prizes?
    The prizes are per person, only your highest place will be rewarded:

    1st Place:            8 general Boosters
    2nd Place:          7 general Boosters
    3rd Place:           6 general Boosters
    4th-5th Place:    5 general Boosters
    6th-10th Place:  3 general Boosters
    11th-50%:          1 general Booster
    All remaining boosters from the ranking rewards will go to a random draw, those ranked below the top 50% will be entered into the draw first! Once every player below the top 50% has won a booster EVERY participant will be entered into a booster draw for any remaining boosters.
    @Bengel Sponsored 2.500 BFP. Those will be split into 5*500 BFP that will be drawn in the lower 50%.

    In addition I will reward any contest related meme that is send to me with an additional booster if we think it is good enough to share it in the stream!
    When Will The Winners Be Announced?

    The winners will be announced via a Twitch stream co-hosted by Ultralord and me! The stream will include at least the fastest three runs, quiz questions (with prizes!) and some interesting data from the event.

  2. Damo liked a post in a topic by Majora in Community Update - February 2023   
    Greetings Skylords!
    A lot has happened in the past month! In this Community Update, we catch up with the recent developments, while also looking towards the future and upcoming Skylords Reborn changes.

    • Anniversary Patch Release

    We hope it was hard to miss, but our latest patch is out! On the 14th of January, we released our 2nd Anniversary patch. The patch contains new cards (Raven Archwalker, Sanctuary), a new promo (Worldbreaker Gun), many balance changes, and new achievements that reward cosmetics! You can find the full patch notes here.

    The introduction of cosmetics and their matching new achievements has also resulted in some issues, most of which have already been resolved with hotfix updates. We are aware of remaining issues with the leaderboard achievements and are working on a fix which includes retroactive reward distribution. We are also aware of major stuttering issues some player experience in the forge and are investigating the problem.

    As is tradition, we have also opened up our patch feedback thread. Please provide feedback to us on the changes we have made to the game. Below are some of the topics which we are most interested in soliciting feedback, though feel free to offer any suggestions regarding the patch and the current direction of the game. 
    Do you like the changes to cards and factions (PvE and PvP)? Why or why not? Where did we hit the mark, and implement something exciting you'd like to see more of? Where did you miss the mark, and what should we avoid in the future?
    Do you enjoy the new cards, are they balanced, etc.?
    What do you think of the new achievements? Which ones are fun and exciting? Which ones are frustrating and boring? Do you like the shift to cosmetic rewards instead of gameplay rewards like boosters and gold?
    You can also join us at our balance discord to further discuss changes to cards. 

    • Stonekin Deep Dive

    In our Deep Dive documents, we share our thoughts and plans for a faction as well as give you some insight into our balancing process. Previously we explored the state of Pure Frost, Bandits and Pure Nature.
    Today, we are excited to share our plans for the Stonekin faction. After exploring what the faction is all about, we took a look at its strengths, weaknesses, and play patterns. To expand on the Stonekin faction, we are working on a new spell called Tectonic Shift. Be sure to check out the Deep Dive if you want to know more!

    • Recap Video

    We have created a special recap video showcasing everything that was added to Skylords Reborn since the release. Catching up on Skylords Reborn should be easier than ever!
    The video is voiced by Dreamlord, and we would also like to give a big thank you to Dutchy, Kapo, and Ultralord for helping create it. 

    Being a volunteer project greatly limits our marketing options, so we hope we can count on you to spread the word about this great game.
    Please share the video with your old BattleForge friends, show it to people who might be interested, or simply give it a like on YouTube. As a thank you for your support, we have also added a scratch code in the comment section of the video. 
    • Card Creation Contest Results

    Our official card creation contest has concluded. A big thank you to everyone who sent in their design. For this contest, we asked you to create your own Skylords Reborn card, which would be judged by our jurors. Entries were made anonymous, so the designs had to speak for themselves. 
    We received 140 designs, ranging from hilarious meme cards to interesting designs and abilities.

    The winners were revealed during a stream that you can rewatch here. You can also browse through all the results on the forum post here. 
    A big thank you to Kapo for gathering all the entries, Ultralord and Volin for hosting the stream, and RadicalX, Windhunter, and Hirooo for judging the entries and providing feedback.
    And most importantly, thank you to every one of you who send in a design! We hope you liked the contest, and we are already exploring our options to add some of the ideas into the game, so look forward to that!  
    • Upcoming Community Map Rework

    Last Community Update, we mentioned we are going to focus more on map content this year. Alongside official map content, we have been hard at work to improve the Community Map section in the game.
    In an earlier patch we already implemented a search function, and currently the Community Map section looks like this: 

    While the search function certainly helped players to find specific maps (like our Spooky Encounters Halloween Map), the rest of this section of the game is currently severely lacking in user experience. We are going to make a couple of changes to greatly improve the experience for both community maps creators and players trying to play the maps they create. 
    • Featured
    A star icon to the left of the map overview will indicate whether this map is featured, which can be done by the Skylords Reborn Staff to highlight certain maps, for example because of their high quality, or for certain events. Our plan is to also give rewards for playing featured maps, like gold and progress towards daily quests and community-map achievements. 
    • Voting
    Everyone will be able to upvote or downvote a map. An upvoted map counts towards the upvotes for that map, but the downvote is purely for personal tracking. Downvotes will not be shown publicly, but they can be used to keep track of maps you personally dislike, so you can filter them out by using the new vote-filter. 
    A player can only vote on a map after they have played (not necessarily won) the map once.
    • Filtering
    Players will be able to filter the maps based on a search term (map name, uploader name, and creator name), the number of players, the rating, and the map type. Map types are Community, Official (for PvP maps) and Featured.
    • Sorting
    There will be four sorting options: map name, amount of players in the map, upvotes, and last edited. For each sorting option, you will be able to choose ascending or descending sort order. 

    • Description and Minimap
    Currently, unknown maps will show a [ ? ] on the minimap. With the rework, clicking on the map name will allow players to view the minimap, without downloading it first. Hovering over the map name will also show a tooltip with the description of the map.
    Because there are a lot of maps available, it is a lot of work to find an interesting map in the current system. You will need to download the map first to view the minimap, and then create a match to view the description. Those two additions (minimap and description preview) will make that process easier and faster.
    Below is our work in progress of the rework of the Community Maps section.

    We hope these changes will encourage players to interact with more community maps, while also rewarding creating new maps by making them easier to find. We are currently finalizing our changes, and hope to patch them in the future. 
    • Team changes

    Nukie, one of our Global Moderators, has joined the Event Manager team. Besides continuing his moderator tasks, he will help out with organizing both community and official events.
    If you are interested in helping out the project yourself, please take a look at our open positions. There is a range of areas you can help!  

    • Tournaments / Events

    Since Community Updates are posted on a monthly schedule, events might come and go in between them. Be sure to keep a close eye on the ingame event-tab and the forum calendar to not miss any events! 

    • FINISHED  – Battle of Tactics 3: Energy Investment 
    For this contest, players had to build all power wells and monuments on the map "The Treasure Fleet" on standard difficulty as fast as possible, without losing any gold wagons. More information.
    • STARTING SOON - Community PvE League - 06-02-2023 until 03-04-2023 
    PvE League Season 2 is starting soon! The PvE League has challenges for all skill levels and ranks, and you don't need to be a speedrunner to be able complete the challenges. You can earn boosters/cards by completing the challenges with enough points, and there are also bonus challenge. Please sign up now if you still want to join. More information.

    • Host your own tournament / event
    Want to host a tournament or event yourself? Please reach out to our Event Organizers, Metagross, Minashigo Hiko, or Nukie! We can help you out with various topics and are glad to discuss potential ideas. We can also sponsor the prize pool for your event. If you have a cool idea for a PvE event, or want to host a PvP tournament, please don't hesitate to reach out to us, we will gladly assist you. 
    Going forward, sponsored prizes for community events will be increased, while the prize pool of official events will be slightly reduced. We want to bridge the gap between official and community events to support them better. 

    • Newsletter

    While we do our best to make it easy to follow Skylords Reborn by providing monthly news through these Community Updates, we are limited to the Forum and our Social Media channels to reach you. You can now sign up for our newsletter, which we will use to give you a heads-up about a new update. Don't worry, we hate spam as much as you do and won't use your data in any other way. 

    If you provided your e-mail during our summer survey to stay up to date, you are automatically subscribed. Our first newsletter was sent out last month, announcing our patch release. 
    • In Conclusion

    And that's it for this Community Update, thanks for reading! 
    As is tradition, this community update comes with a scratch code. 
    The code will reward you with a Stonekin booster: STON-EKIN-DEEP-DIVE

    The code is valid until March 1st, when we will bring you another Community Update. 
    As always, we are open to feedback, so please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments! 

    • Skylords Reborn Documents (Deep Dives, Behind the Scenes, PvP Guide)  
    • Overview Community Updates
    • Community Update January 2023
  3. Damo liked a post in a topic by Majora in Community update #16 - December 18th   
    Greetings Skylords!
    Happy Anniversary! Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the Skylords Reborn project. We hope you had a lot of fun reliving your BattleForge memories and are excited to give you a look into the future. 

    • Anniversary Stream
    In case you missed it, we hosted a special anniversary stream yesterday. We celebrated the past, present en future of Skylords Reborn, with news, card reveals, give-aways and more! 
    Sadly, something went wrong with the playback of yesterdays stream that we are not sure we can fix. Since we recorded it live with the 3 of us, and 2 audio tracks are broken, it does not make much sense for the viewer anymore. We are sorry for those who missed the stream and now can't watch it.

    If we cannot fix the video, we plan to do a retake for youtube, adjusting it to be some kind of looking back at 2021, that people can watch to see everything that has been added to Skylords Reborn since release. 
    • Patch Reveal + Toggy Stream
    Our biggest surprise from the Anniversary Stream: our Anniversary Patch releases today!
    See the brand new cards and features in action during a special celebration stream hosted by Toggy tonight!
    There will also be a quiz where you can win the new cards, so be sure to check it out!
    The Stream is happening at twitch.tv/dastoggy 
    We are very grateful for Toggy's support over the years and have officially rewarded him with Skylords of Honor today. Well deserved, and to many more years!
    • New Cards
    This patch will release five brand new cards into the game! We are excited that you will finally get your hands on the cards we have been working on for the past months. The following cards will be added to the game:
    Coat of Protection
    Coat of Protection is a new incentive to play Pure Frost. This tier 4 spell can be seen as the frost equivalent of Regrowth, helping the faction with some lategame support. Check out the full card-reveal here.

    Bandit Minefield
    Bandit Minefield is a new tier 2 Spell for Fire/Shadow that should greatly help the faction in PvP. It is a rare and does not have an affinity. Check out the full card-reveal, including the design process, here.

    Banzai Lord
    Banzai Lord is a powerful new tier 4 unit that can be splashed into, requiring only one shadow and one fire orb. He collects the corpses of fallen foes and allies to summon his darling birds. The card appears in two affinities, one with destructive birds, one with healing birds. You can find more information in the Bandit Deep Dive. 

    Bandit Sniper
    Bandit Sniper is a new, ranged M counter for the Bandits-faction. It is an uncommon that does not have an affinity. It's ability Focus Shot allows the Bandit Sniper to live up to its name, dealing devastating damage to enemies at long range. 

    Amii Paladin
    The shroud surrounding the Amii-faction is slowly lifted. Amii Paladins is our first look at the Amii-faction, after the never followed on tease from Amii Phantom back in the day. It's special ability ''Reflective Armor'' allows the unit to reflect 100% of incoming damage back into enemies, making them a challenging foe to fight. 
    Amii Paladins has the new Amii Passive Ability "Elusive". Units with Elusive have the duration of the immobilizing effects of Freeze and Paralyze reduced by 10%. This ability will be added to all current and future Amii units. 

    Amii Phantom
    While not a new card, Amii Phantom has received a brand new look! Both her artwork and ingame look have been adjusted to fit with the vision of the Amii-Faction. Elusive has also been added, and we plan to change her voicelines (she currently has those from Nightguard) to complete her makeover. 

    A word on Wasteland Terror
    Some of you might be wondering why Wasteland Terror (previously Wasteland Wing) is not included in this patch, even though he was revealed in an earlier communtiy update. Sadly, we were not able to make the anniversary deadline and could not include him in this patch. Rest assured that he we will be implemented in a future patch, though we are not able to tell when just yet. Until then, may you enjoy the clear blue skies while you still can..
    • Voice Actors Update
    Now for some disappointing news. With the help of some talented voice actors, we have created some great voicelines to go along with our new (and some old) cards. Sadly, we ran into technical issues. For some reason, the game keeps crashing inconsistently while playing the new voicelines.  Because this did not happen during our initial testing, we could not pinpoint the issue on time to solve it for this patch. Sadly we have to ship the new cards without their matching voicelines. We are really disappointed about this, and we hope to be able to find the solution soon and patch in the new voicelines in all their glory. For this we would love to get your help. 
    Beside the new cards, we will also be adding voicelines for Dryad, Mountain Rowdy and Amii Phantom in the future. There are also already plans for other cards that are currently without voicelines, like Bandit Lancer or Warlock. 
    We would like to give you a sneak peak of what we have been working on and give you a proper first impression of two new cards.

    Here is what you can expect from the sinister Banzai Lord:
    And here is what you will hear leading the Amii Paladins into battle:
    We would love to have the help of the community fixing the issues we ran into implementing these voicelines. If you have any understanding of coding and/or sound, please head over here and join us in solving this issue. 

    • Balance Changes
    Alongside new cards and features, we will also release some balance changes this patch. 

    Following the Bandits Deep Dive, there are a couple of changes in this patch, including Amok, Commando's, Windhunter, Sandstorm and Corsair. Further PvE-focussed balance changes will be implemented for Frost, with adjustments to Ice Age, Battleship, Maelstrom, Northern Keep, Retreating Circle and fan-favorite: Juice Tank. 

    There are also some changes to popular cards like Sunderer, Dryad, Master Archers and Stormsinger, in combination with the new cards you can expect a fresh meta for PvP as well. 

    You can check out all the details and explanations for the changes in the patch notes. 
    • Free PvP Decks Updated
    We expect new cards like Bandit Minefield to shake up the PvP scene and find it important that everyone who wants to play PvP can do so without grinding for cards or upgrades first. We have upgraded our free PvP decks to include the new cards, alongside adjustments to most decks to adapt to the meta changes that have happened since the introduction of the free PvP decks. Please note: to update the decks, we had to reset all the current decks. Sorry about the inconvenience. 
    Here is a quick recap on where you can find the PvP decks: 

    - Select the sword on the top right of the menu to select your 2 free PvP decks.
    - Free PvP decks are fully upgraded decks, that can only be used in PvP. 
    - You can select two new decks every day*, if you want to switch things up.
    - You can freely swap around cards in those decks with cards in your collection to customize the decks to your liking. You can do this by clicking the tab in your inventory on the top left and changing General to Free PvP and vice-versa.
    *We have reduced the timer to change your two Free PvP decks from 7 days to 24 hours.
    • Updated PvP Starter Guides
    On top of changes to the standard free PvP decks, RadicalX and Hirooo got together to update their starter guide for PvP. Want to get into PvP but not sure where to start? In this guide you will find everything you need: deck descriptions, tips and tricks for every match-up, an overview of the pro's and con's of your deck and how beginner friendly the deck is to play!
    The guide ended up being longer than your average thesis, but we made sure to provide it with a clear layout so you can easily find your favorite deck and browse through the information you need. 
    You can find the updated starter guide here, and be sure to join the Tutor and Apprentice discord that is specifically designed to help new players get started. Feel free to ask all your questions there. 
    • New Fire rPvE Preset
    It is now possible to face the Fire faction in all its blazing glory in rPvE! You can expect a fresh new challenge for rPvE, including new bosses to fight against. While we did a lot of testing, we would love to hear your feedback on the balance of this new enemy.
    Please let us know your feedback on the forum or discord!

    • Reforging
    One of our biggest and most requested new features this patch is Reforging. The idea behind this new system is to give players a use for their spare cards without listing them on the Auction House. Players have no use for 40+ copies of the same common, and listing them for 3BFP on the AH has proven to be quite tedious and often unsuccessful. Additionally, the rise of expensive ultra rare cards is becoming a problem. We hope to tackle these issues with this new feature.
    Here is how it works; players can reforge four cards from their collection to create one brand new card, destroying the four cards in the process. The card that is created will depend on different factors such as the rarity and color of the input cards. Players can also increase their odds by selecting cards that have something in common, for example four buildings. Using higher rarity cards will also increase the odds of an ultra rare dropping. Should the odds of reforging into an ultra rare card ever exceed 100%, players will get some spare Forge Shards. These Shards can then be used to get a mini-booster. It is not possible to use or get a promo card when reforging.

    We expect this feature to have a large impact on the economy as a whole. Being able to exchange rares and cheap ultra rares for the chance of getting one of the more expensive ultra rares should bring their prices down. At the same time, this feature should increase the price of cheap ultra rares, since they are now valuable resources for reforging. While some of you might be worried that destroying four ultra rare cards to create one random one will further decrease the supply; please note that reforging multiple ultra rares is designed to be inefficient, thus discouraging the use of more than one ultra rare at a time, since the odds of getting an ultra rare does not improve over using a combination of rares and ultra rares. After the dust has settled, we expect this will bring a better balance to prices within a rarity. Because of the big shake-up this will have on the economy, we have closed the Auction House between the announcement of this system and the release of it.

    • Legacy Avatars
    We have added additional features regarding the player avatar you can select. It is now possible to buy the avatar that was previously only selectable with the creation of a new account for 15.000 gold. Additionally, once you have bought one of those avatars, they will be added to your collection, allowing you to swap freely!
    In the future we are also planning to add additional avatars that can be collected through special events or achievements. 

    • Advanced Filtering
    Our developer Kubik has been working on improving the filtering of search results, both for the inventory and the auction house. Some of you showed interest in this progress, so we put together a document explaining how the current filtering works, why it's far from perfect, and how it will be changed. It's a bit more technical than the other documents we have shared with the community so far, but we hope you will enjoy this look behind the scenes! 
    Advanced filtering.pdf

    • Booster Discounts + Santa 
    As a special treat for our one year anniversary, all boosters in the game will be 100BFP cheaper between 18-12-2021 and 18-01-2022. 
    Additionally, every player will receive the Santa Claus card after playing a game. Happy Holidays Skylords!

    • Team Changes / Open Positions
    It has been a wild ride getting Skylords Reborn to the state it is now. We still have more new cards and exciting game modes in development, but need help getting them to you sooner. If you love the project, please consider helping us out, we would love to have you on our team. 
    Below are three roles highlighted, but you can find more information, desired traits and all our open positions here. If you are unsure if you qualify, please reach out and have a talk! At the same time, we are sad to announce Carofex has left the team as a balance developer. We want to thank him for his contributions and wish him well! 
    Open Position - Map Tester
    As a map tester you get early access to new maps and gamemodes and are responsible to playtest them and provide feedback to the other map developers about possible issues or improvements. This includes check how balanced the map is, how fun it is to play, if there are any exploits, if areas on the map need to be prettified etc. Map developers/designers/artists should be able to rely on you to make sure maps that are released or changed are done so properly. More information.
    Open Position - Client Developer
    As a game client developer you are responsible to maintain and develop the game client. This mostly includes add new pre-game features (content outside of matches, so no game mechanics) through .pak files used by the game. You will be responsible to create and design in-game interfaces for new features, add networking support for new features that require it, solve bugs etc. using LUA, XML and little bit of Rust. BattleForge uses LUA and XML in their .pak files which are loaded by the client. Communication with the server happens through a proxy written in Rust. More information.
    Open Position - Game Server Developer
    As a game server developer you are responsible to maintain and develop the game servers. This includes add new features, track and fix bugs, optimize code, roll out new server updates, improve server monitoring etc. The servers are written in C++17, use boost asio for networking, MySQL as database, Prometheus and Grafana for monitoring etc. More information.

    • In Conclusion
    And that's it for this Community Update, thanks for reading! 
    Remember; as a special treat for our one year anniversary, all boosters in the game will be 100BFP cheaper between 18-12-2021 and 18-01-2022. 
    We also have a scratch code for you, which will reward you with a general booster: SKYL-ORDS-REBO-RN1Y
    The code is valid until January 8th 2022, which is when our next community update will release.

    We hope you will join us in the celebrations playing this new patch, and we would love to hear your feedback on how you experienced the past year of Skylords Reborn! Please let us know below.  
    Happy holidays!

    New record for nightmares end solo: 20.10.6 😀
  5. Damo liked a post in a topic by Volin in Shadow card tier list (PvE)   
    Heya, thanks for another video on that, enjoyed it very much again!

    This time I'm very much closer to Kserke then to Dutchy, for almost every card I can go with Kserskes comments on it. Sometimes I would go one tier higher or lower, but we have seen this is a common thing in all of our tierlists we had, be it on cards or on decks.

    Only things where I disagree on Kserske more then one tier:

    - Plauge is S tier, and this is not much a question of taste, one of the strongest spells in the game
    - same goes for Booster in the buildings
    - Shadow Worm is not thaaat bad, he is no reason to play 4 shadow and that is super sad, but if you want to build around him it works ok-good
    - Unholy Power is a D for me. Clunky to play, runs often out usually quicker as people would guess, only rarely usefull as it stacks with Unholy Hero

    Keep on the good work!
  6. Damo liked a post in a topic by Metagross31 in Skylords speedrunning bounty - September 2022   
    Dear skyfolk,
    since the most recent balance Patch included a reset of all speedrunning leaderboards, we have decided to create a bounty for those, who will be the first ones to reach to top of the rankings again.
    Thus, we will reward every player, who holds a speedrunning record in either campaign PvE on expert difficulty or rPvE difficulty 10, with 2 General Booster per record they have at the end of the month, up to a maximum of 4 boosters per player.
    Since the rankings are still completely empty, everyone has a chance of setting a time on the leaderboards for now!
    So if you are interested, check out the forum post containing the PvE/rPvE rankings to see the rules. If you manage to have a record, your time will also be featured in this post.
    Let's hope for some great runs!
    Kind Regards,
    the Skylords events team.
  7. Damo liked a post in a topic by LEBOVIN in Patch #400035 - 14 September 2022   
    These are still planned, but they would require a little bit more testing (actually someone please verify if it works for crusade 😛 ) and the focus of the patch was not really to spend too much time on map changes.

    45mins in a map that good players/decks manage in 10-15mins seems like a freaking lot time.
    21mins in a common BG9 that can be done even with pure decks (that are nice but usually not suuper speedy) in 10-13mins is already a lot time for experiments. Else it would be like Coco said, auto wins even if you have just some random cards. And not every card must be viable in every game mode.
    And this mode is still about beating the enemys.
    Only in 4p 10s I'm still for 2-5mins more time, as it is hard enough with meta decks on some maps, a few mins more could enable a few other decks what would be nice. But this suggestion was already made.

    In 3025 BattleForge Reborn is still alive.
    What update are you planning for then? 😁

    Great idea, though a bit sad that time gives this a second component which makes this, even more then other contests, a shoot in the dark.
    But don't get me wrong, the concept remains wonderfull!
    One question, playing a unit/building is an action too, or are spells the only card that count for that?
    EDIT: What is btw. about raising wells?

    Patch #400034
    This patch contains some Quality of Life changes, alongside updates to our free PvP decks. 

    General Changes
    Added a new map script function SetUiVisibility. You can use it to hide the UI by typing SetUiVisibility { InterfaceState = false } and unhide it using SetUiVisibility { InterfaceState = true }. It works analogously to the CTRL + U hotkey. Newly recorded replays will now display a "Desync" warning, if the gameplay differs from what occurred in the actual match. Added a cooldown icon indicator for the wall gate toggle ability. Updated the free PvP decks to match the new meta. An overview of these changes can be found on the Wiki.    General Fixes
    Disabled all UI effects while the forge is paused. This caused bugged out visual effects before. Fixed a game crash when trying to log in with the wrong password or email. UTF-8 compatible Russian community map names are no longer automatically displayed with a an error message in the downloadable community map section. To achieve compatible map names and descriptions in Russian, please edit the description.xml file directly. Added trailing period for generic cooldown error message. Removed trailing period for toggle gate ability. Non-Player Card Entity Changes
      Bandit Master Healer (Introduction) (Card Id: 235)
     Aligned displayed name in non-English descriptions to match the English one.

      NEW: Fire Altar (Collision enabled) (Card/Building Id: 3721)
    Added a new version for the "Fire Altar" quest building for use with the map-editor. This version has collision enabled, meaning it will be able to be attacked by melee units.

    Greetings Skylords!
    This community update is a bit different to what you are used to. We would like to take a bit of time to communicate to you all, the player base, about the state of the project, and give you the opportunity to communicate to us as well. 

    • Share your feedback, get two boosters!

    Last month, we released our latest patch: "Force of Nature". We hope you are all enjoying it, and are curious to hear how you feel about Skylords Reborn in general.  
    It has already been a year since our feedback survey, so it is time for some reflection and feedback. What do you like about Skylords Reborn? What could be better? We want to keep improving the game and growing our player base, and your feedback is crucial for us. 
    As a thank you, there will be two boosters for everyone who fills in the survey. Your feedback will be anonymous.

    • State of the Project

    We are very proud of everything we have accomplished with Skylords Reborn so far. Not only are fans able to play BattleForge again, but over the last two years we have added many new features and content. However, a lot of effort is required behind the scenes to create these new features.
    Skylords Reborn has a very loyal and consistent player base, but has been struggling to find new players. This also results in less potential contributors, resulting in a few individuals doing a ton of work. There is only so much we can do as volunteers, and at the current rate it is becoming unsustainable to keep the same feature output rate.
    Without additional contributors, Skylords Reborn will only get card and balance updates moving forward.
    This means new cards and adjustments on existing cards, but not features like Reforging, improvements to the UI, Happy Hours, etc. While we are currently working on a couple of new and existing cards, to improve the game, we would really like to add new features as well. 
    To give you an idea of what we are currently missing out on, below are some features highlighted that we feel would really improve Skylords Reborn. This is a game with so much potential, and we would love to bring it to you! 
    • What could be: potential features for Skylords Reborn

    Before we dive into them, please note:
    - The following features are currently not in development, due to a lack of game client developers, game server developers, and fullstack developers.
    - You can directly help create this features by applying for a staff role.
    - You can indirectly help by spreading the word.
    - Images shown are very early mock-ups.
    PvE Map Modifiers
    Map modifiers are global effects that can be applied to matches. These can be chosen before the start of a match, and different modifiers can be combined for limitless replayability. Examples of modifiers are: all enemy units regenerate 3% of their health every second, all enemy units move 25% faster, all enemy units spawn a hostile Nether Crawler on death, or cards return less power to the void pool. The more modifiers are active, the higher the reward from the match. The following is a mockup of a UI to choose the modifiers before lobby creation.

    New Reward Distribution System
    Do you dislike receiving achievement and quest rewards through the in-game mail? What about your auctions? Isn't it also a bit boring to see your scratch code rewards in a small static window? This feature is a new way to make it more exciting to open rewards. Imagine the following mockup with nice animations and sound effects, showing you what you received and actions to take with the items. The idea would be to move away from the lackluster interface and user experience of the in-game mail.

    Currently, the player can only express themselves through their character avatar. This feature would add numerous cosmetics like character borders, character banners (textured and colored), player titles and more avatars in general. The following image shows a Christmas themed border, and a green character banner. Instead of `Master of the Forge`, the player can also own and change their title and other cosmetics in a cosmetic management screen. We already started on this with the Cosmetics window currently found in-game, although it is currently limited to avatars. The idea is to add more tabs to the right of the Cosmetics page for the different cosmetics. Achievements, events and even leaderboard positions can also reward special cosmetics.

    Compare Profiles
    Amassing many cards, becoming the richest player, completing all the achievements and collecting all the different cosmetics is rewarding, but showcasing and comparing your accomplishments with others is also part of the fun. With the compare profiles feature, players would be able to manage what they share publicly, and easily compare their profiles with those of other players, either globally or specifically with one player. The following image is a very early concept of a screen to compare achievements with a specific player.

    Map Progression Indicators
    Map progression indicators is a feature for the world map that indicates, through the usage of stars above each campaign map, what difficulties you have completed for each map. This allows you to quickly have a glance of what you have already completed, and what you have not.

    New Campaign Maps
    While rPvE is arguably the most played game mode, we know players would really like to continue the story and/or experience new campaign maps. While we already have some of the resources to make this happen, we are lacking in the map department to make the push to get this done in a way that fits the quality you can expect from an official campaign map. Please consider applying as Map Artist, Map Designer or Map Developer. 

    New Community Map Experience
    The experience of creating, sharing, finding and managing community maps has always been very cumbersome. Currently, it is a unmanageable list that leaves much to be desired. This feature would completely overhaul how the community maps screen looks like, for both PvP and PvE. More filters, more sorting, public upvoting and private downvoting, highlighting of frequently played maps, deleting maps you have uploaded, viewing when a map was last edited and viewing the minimap of community maps without having to download them are a few features that could be included.
    Another option to improve the accessibility of Community Maps would be adding a second world map, where the best community maps would be found, similar to the campaign maps. 

    rPvE Deck Builder Mode
    Quite popular in other card games is a mode where you face challenges while your starting deck is slowly expanding by picking a card from a random selection. We think this could be a great new way to play Skylords Reborn, with every run being unique and allowing you to experiment with different cards and combinations. This would require quite a bit of UI work though, which is why this mode has not been developed yet. 

    Seasons are a broad topic that could include many features that reset or adjust based on the start of a new season. Some examples are Seasonal Leaderboards that reset at the end of each season and automatic events that occur throughout the season. But also seasonal objectives and/or objective trees to complete, similar to a battle pass in other games, are topics that have been discussed in the team quite often. We feel seasons would help make the game feel more fresh, and reward players for playing through each season, giving older players a reason to return. 
    Seasons are a broad feature that would probably require other features mentioned above to be included first, like the improved reward system, modifiers on maps to create new challenges, and additional cosmetics to be rewarded.  
    As you can see, there is still a lot of potential for Skylords Reborn, and we would love to add them to the game. 
    As mentioned before, these features are currently not in development due to a lack of people to work on them.
    • Help us make these features happen
    So get your friends to join, or have them return to check out the new content and achievements, give us suggestions (through the survey) on how to improve the player base, or apply for a staff position yourself. We really can't do this without you! 

    • Team Changes

    Due to personal reasons, Friendly Firefly sadly had to resign from the team. We are grateful for his help with Burning Spears and wish him all the best!
    While not technically a team change, we would also like to take a moment to thank Kapo for his contributions to Skylords Reborn. You might know him from hosting the CCC events, but Kapo has been doing a ton of work for the team behind the scenes as well. From helping out with the recent Force of Nature trailer, to proofreading and providing feedback, we can always count on him. Due to his contributions to Skylords Reborn, we have awarded him with the rare Skylord of Honor title. 
    • In Conclusion

    Thank you for reading this Community Update. We hope you will consider helping us out. 
    As is tradition, this community update comes with a scratch code. 
    The code will reward you with a general booster: NEWL-EGEN-DARY-WHEN
    And remember: By doing our survey, you can grab an additional two boosters! 
    The code is valid until August 1st, when we will bring you our next Community Update. 
    As always, we are open to feedback, so please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments!

    Just wanted to mention single player rPvE 10 is not up to date. Mocaak did beat the record in January 2022 (11:04.0). Replay was also posted on my youtube channel if you look to confirm this (as 1p rPvE ladder isn't fixed yet).
  19. Damo liked a post in a topic by Kapo in Change "The Boot" to a crown with a different color   
    I know this is an issue of no real importance, but it bothered me right from the start, and it keeps hurting my eyes. In my opinion, there are several reasons to change "The Boot":
    * The winged boot (πτηνοπέδῑλος) are the symbol of Hermes, the Greek Messenger God; and the appropriate use is to signify speed. Accumulating that much XP is a feat of tenacity, not of speed.
    * This symbol is squished into a way too small space, and not good-looking in that spot anyway.
    * There is a clear continuity in the PvE Ranks using crowns in ascending order, represented by colors.
    * The worst of all, "The Boot" switches BACK to gold (rare) color. So, even if you guys decide for legacy reasons to keep the boot, it's still a sin to keep it golden.
    My suggestion would be to just add a new Crown Color, maybe a royal red or an epic purple kind. If you want to make the last rank super-duper special with a different symbol, it would be still advisable to get rid of "The Boot" and replace it with something symboling tenacity or experience in general.
    To see with your own eyes that "The Boot" makes no sense at all, a screenshot from the Wiki:
