    I don't care about about meaning, and fact is that I want my name back because it doesn't mean anything. 

     

    And you are who again?


  2. But you make way to many UN-substantiated claims in your initial posts such as rare and ultra rare prices.  I can assure you your assumptions are wrong currently... Looking at Parasite, Forest Elder, Wheel of Gifts, Mana Wing, just to name a few of the natures cards.

    Current booster cost is way too high.

    It doesn't make any sense purchasing a booster.

    I am sure that your statistics show very few people buying boosters.

    Average Rare card is below 100 BFP in the AH and Ultra cards are probably worth 250 BFP on average.

    Common and Uncommon have a 10 BFP average value.

    Therefore I believe that 200 BFP per booster is a fair price.

    Your thought?

     

     

     

     

     

    Looks at the Uncommon Shaman which has been stuck at 750+ BFP for 3 months now..... just to use one of many as an example.


  4. While I agree the wait times are a tad long especially attempting to complete the quests.  I agree with you but for a completely different reason.

     

    HOwever if memory servers you can achieve Rank 10 in PvE and upgrades your cards.  Once upgraded you should not lose the upgrade.

    I point to last place where MrXLink was last saying NO to this on forum, if you manage to reach him, he will send you some waals of text, that have suprisingly high success rate of convincing people that his decision is the right one, whatever the decion was.

     

     

    Meanwhile the Same Bugs, the Same Exploits... The Same, Phase Tower Spam, The Same Mortar Tower Spam, The Same Razorshard Spam, The Same Deep One Spam, The Same Tree Spirits Spam.... the list goes on and on.......continue to PLAGUE PvP.  While we wait over 4 years for "Nostalgia"  I am sorry I do not get this.

    There is a discord where balancing changes were being discussed. Not sure how to invite you though. However, MrXLink has stated that for nostalgic reasons, he wants to full release of the game to have the same balance as when the game died. 

    A few months after full release, balances can happen.

    Personally I don't see why we can't start making pvp balance changes now and then reset things once full release is ready, but I understand that reasoning for nostalgia.

    I hae been to the Discord Server some decent ideas there.  Granted I can not type or contribute but I can see it.

    Correct me if i am wrong but we are currently in Open Stress which means pretty much anyone can log in and get "nostalgic"  This project has been ongoing for 4.5 years.  It is all volunteer and it does take time to relaunch old games.  However the "Nostalgia" is wearing thin for some of us.  I just do not see a logical reason to be holding back the implementations any longer.  The game needs to feel like its moving forward more so than it is.  Now I have no idea what the time table is which I understand.  However how long is gameplay going to stay.  Roll a few card changes out.... see how it works out.  There will be issues.  Much rather iron those out now than when the game is live. 

     

    Point being, we have a decent amount of players now that it is extremely feasible to do this.  Nostalgia be damned, I have been playing, like most, since 2008. 


  7. My point is the project has been going since late 2015.  We are currently in Open Stress.  We have players who are active in PvE, PvP needs a bit of population bump.  Unless ya'll plan on creating 2 card databases 1 for PvE and 1 for PvP  (Honestly the only way to balance without breaking both), now is the time to try to at least get a few of the "Problem" Cards addressed.  Get some done now and when live hits we can do more.  The notion to wait to launch as the game was is IMHO ridiculous.  We all know how it was and how it is.  We do not need a history lesson.  Lets try to address some of the card issues now while we have time to play and actually test before it gets to live. 

    I am honestly trying to think of a reasonable reason why we are not at least doing some cards.  We know what the problems are..... Lets address them.  From my stand point the game appears to be reasonably stable, there are a few issues that pop up, but I am sure they are being addressed. 

     

    So what is the reason we are waiting?


  8. Ok I have been around BF since early Beta... and by that I mean 2008.  Love the game, love what its about and I hate Phenom for not doing more of a marketing campaign in the US  ( And Root Network Nerf! ). 

    With that said.....

    WTH are we waiting on in regards to implementing changes to some of the cards.  Those of us who have been around know damn well that SOMETHING needs to be done to cards.  This project has been going on what 4 or 5 years now and how many have been changed?

    I am sorry but I have a problem with this.  The community has come up with several ideas which honestly are GREAT.  Why are they not slowly being implemented.  One of the things that hurt this game is there were cards that flat out needed to be NERFED and many that needed to be buffed.  Having worked on a project I know that most of the changes are simple edits to the scripts that change the cards as well as an edit to the card itself if it is not an auto update based on the script.

    We are in Open Stress.... and have been....... for a long..... long ....... time now.  We need to start pushing changes to cards forward and get it done before we go live whenever the hell that will be.   I have seen the posts about a single person holding up card balance.  I do not know how true it is.  But we need to start implementing it.  Imagine just how many we could have done in 4 years. ....... And had time to get it right!

    what balance changes do you feel are necessary? just asking out of curiosity.

     

    Go to the Cards and Balance Sub Categories on the forums and you will see what I am talking about.  There is seriously way to many to write.

    We dont need nostalgia at this point - there are cards that are completely broken/useless - improve/balance this cards will bring new energy/motiviation for the players (and no i am not just talking about amii-monument ;-D). I am sure you are aware of this but should this decision not a team decision and not just the decision of MrXLink?

    Gotta agree with this.  While I am not advocating for a complete rebalance.  Each Faction has some cards that really really need to be looked at for both reduction and increasing abilities.

    As you all know, there will be a reset at the end of the stress test, which some of the players dislike.

    In another thread here a developer noted, that there are a lot of unreleased cards in the games database, right?

    If so, why not combine the reset with the release of some new cards? People gonna be very hyped to try out the new cards. Therefore they wont mind starting from scratch that much. In addition some of their  currently precous cards and upgrades might lose value because of the release of new cards, so the reset will hurt less.

     

     

    Honestly if you want Hype.... Especially for those of us that have been around for a long long long and I mean ancient times.  I would suggest balance the cards we have first.... At least some of the Major ones for each faction.

     

    That alone will change the dynamic of the game and allow for a fresh breeze.

    Hi there

    Im new here and used to play this game like crazy, somehow it stumbled in my head and went to look for some videos and saw that the game is back to play thats to the awesome people here!!

     

    I can't believe it im downloading  it as im typing this. I was wondering though, I remember I used to spent alot of my money (young child allowance) on this game, do you still need to purchase booster packs etc in this version?

     

    Thank you :D

    It is indeed back.  No REAL MONEY can exchange hands other than donations for the server.  Everything else is being done by awesome volunteers.

    Boosters are eared at a rate of 1-2 a day depending on your play time.  30 minutes = 1 guaranteed booster and I believe 90ish minutes might give you a second.  (confirm?)

    There are also daily quests available to gain BFP which in turn can be used to purchase boosters.

    Glad your back

    Why you need all cards? Did you ever have access to all MtG cards? (There are online game that allow you to, or you can just print the cards yourself, not allowed on most places, I tried that and it was boring, copared to the colecting aspect of the game)

    Sorry never played MtG nor do I care to.

     

    BF is unique in that you build a deck, and then there is no randomization to how they are drawn other than power.  Your deck literally comes to life.  There is no other game out there like that.  This allows for some very interesting uses of cards both in PvP and PvE. 

    I had ALL the cards in the original BR in about 6-9 months.  (2008-2009)  And I still played until the day they turned the servers off.

    Well Phasetowerspam is broken and makes the overall game quality straight up worse. Sadly all plans regarding balancing changes got postponed to an unknown date. 

     

    Yeah saw that.

    I am sorry, but not acknowledging problems for players other than yourself is not really helping, right? Not everyone will have the knowledge on how to do this initially, so why say NO to something that would help new players?

    The problem is if you have a conversion for something as easy to gold to obtain, then the markets will get whacked very quickly. 

    Quite frankly all you have to do is use you tube.  Just about every map has been dissected with just about any deck imaginable.  In Fact  I think most have been beat on expert with merely the free to play deck and the tutorial deck.

    Having any type of conversion is a bad bad idea.

    I do not think people should have all the cards in year or two. (There will be some exceptions that will have them in few week or sooner)

    If there will be much more cards it will solve the problem with players leaving, because they have everything, but makes your problem (not being able to have everything) worse.

    Can you link to BFP proposal you writw,? I either miss it, or there was nothing today about it.

     

    I do not agree with this either.  Taking 2 years to get all the cards will make me lose interest quicker than having all the cards.

    It's easy for expert players with all the charges and upgrades.

    Not so easy for new players who start with nothing.

    Granted I have been around BF since 2008.   However currently my deck level is only 40 I think.  I can still farm gold quite easily if I so choose.


  16. Stop it.... Stop it......

     

    Fire T1 has no chance against Nature T1,..... we must spread this so the fire T1 Players auto resign when they see the first set of swift claws ;ppp

     

     

     

     

     

     

    actually Fire T1 does nicely against Nature T1

    Hello,

    is Shaman a most have in PVP T1 Nature Deck or is there a way to play without him?

    Is anyone here who play high elo without?

    Thanks

    Bindo

     

     

     

    Yes.  Free healing and good T1 M/M counter, especially against Frost Mage Spam.  Currently the Shaman is priced WAY WAY to high on the AH.  However you can get by with Surge of light so long as you can hit multiple units with it., however it will catch up with you in the end.
