  1. Just as Kubik said, we will provide some very basic examples, such as an AI that just spawns a single unit and gives an attack command, so participants know where to start.
  2. That would not be a good idea imo. Not only for the points you made, but also since you have to spawn 6x as many units to get an army together and micro them all at once, which would be a nightmare.

  4. Have you tried using a different OS (i.e. Linux) on one of them (e.g. via dualboot) to see if it changes anything?
  5. The Skylords Reborn PvP AI programming contest - Phase 1 Hello fellow Skyladies, Skylords and other Sky-beings! We're thrilled to introduce a one-of-a-kind event that combines the thrill of PvP gameplay with the ingenuity of programming. Get ready for the AI Programming Tournament, where your submitted programs will face off in an epic showdown to find the ultimate AI strategist! Format The event will consist of three separate phases, with phase 1 starting now! In phase 1, we ask all of you, who are interested in participating in this event, to fill out a questionnaire about your previous programming experience and programming language of choice. After the questionnaire closes, we will use this information to prepare an API (Application programming interface) and document it according to your programming skills, such that everyone who is interested will be able to compete! Once the API is ready to be presented to you, phase 2 starts, in which you will have enough time to write and test your programs. Once phase 2 ends, phase 3 will be a tournament, in which all entries we received battle if out to find the best of them all! More information about the technicalities will be presented when phase 2 starts. Event Details Deadline for phase 1: 31.12.2023 Start of phase 2: Not yet determined Link to the questionnaire: *CLICK* Link to the event Discord: *CLICK* Why participate? Participating in this tournament offers a unique opportunity to not only showcase your programming skills but also demonstrate strategic thinking in a dynamic gaming environment. Beyond the thrill of competition, there are fantastic prizes at stake. The specific prizes will be disclosed at the start of phase 2. In our effort to make PvP more approachable for newer players, we would love to add the option to play and practice against AI opponents. We are currently exploring our options, and your entry could serve as the foundation for this! Whether you're a seasoned programmer or just starting out, this tournament welcomes all skill levels. We will provide enough documentation, such that everyone can participate with at least a basic program. Please note... We are aware, that this is not a gameplay event and that only a minority of the community will likely be interested in competing. For those of you, who are looking for more gameplay-oriented events, don't worry, we will still have those in the future! For those of you, who will participate, please be patient during phase 1. We want to make sure, that everything works and all technicalities are figured out by that time, so expect a delay between the end of phase 1 and the start of phase 2. Do not expect phase 2 to start at the beginning of next year, please allow us enough time to prepare everything, which might take some time! Special Thanks Big thanks to @Kubik for providing all the technical stuff necessary to make this happen! Questions Reply in this thread if you have questions, we will answer them as soon as possible. Best regards, The Skylords Reborn Team
  6. Sleet Storm is there, Tectonic Shift isn't in the game yet 😄
  7. You could write them an ingame mail. They will be able to see that when they come online, too. This method cannot automatically complete the trade however, since you still have to both be online at some point to do the actual trading. One thing, that might help, is a "Cash on Delivery" option (CoD) for the ingame mail system. This way you could, for example, send someone a Spitfire and choose the CoD option and set a prize of 750 BfP, and when they see the mail, they have the option to either accept the offer, receiving the card and automatically sending back 750 BfP or to decline it, automatically sending back the card.
  8. The effects team has really outdone itself with the Tectonic Shift effect! 💯
  9. Random: The rewards will be split among all players randomly. Assign: The group leader will decide who gets what and what will be disenchanted (i.e. turned into Gold). Need and/or greed: Very complicated. For an explanation, see the wiki: https://skylords-reborn.fandom.com/wiki/Player_vs_Environment_(PvE)#PvE_Rewards_&_Difficulty_Levels

  11. To me it depends. For some cards, the affinities feel like a cheap way to just create more cards without providing a lot of diversity. In these cases, the two cards feel more or less the same to me. In other cases, one affinity is clearly superior to the other, creating essentially a useless card. In rare cases however, both affinities provide completely different playstyles which both have their unique nieche. In these cases, affinities are awesome! In general, I think the best way to go is what Windhunter wrote in the card design document - make affinities where they make sense, don't make them, when they feel unnecessary.
  12. Hello fellow Skyladies and Skylords! It has been a very long time, but we are finally back with a new PvP tournament! Tournament Date On Sunday 20.08.23 starting at 2:00 p.m. CEST (Berlin time). Format The tournament will be played as a 1on1, Best of 3, double elimination tournament, meaning if you lose a set, you move to the lower bracket and can still make the finals! Grand finals will have a bracket reset, meaning the player coming from the lower bracket has to win two sets against the finalist to win the tournament. Prize Pool Participation Reward Playing at least two rounds in the tournaments will earn you 1 General Booster, even if you lost both rounds! Ranking Rewards • 1st place 8 General Booster packs + 1500 BFP • 2nd place 7 General Booster packs • 3rd place 6 General Booster packs • 4th place 5 General Booster packs • 5th place 4 General Booster packs • 6th-8th place 3 General Booster packs Winning Rewards For each set you win, you will get 1 additional General Booster (limited to up to 3 per person). Random rewards Additionally, there will be a pool consisting of all PvP cards from the Rebirth edition, which will be randomly distributed between all participants! Organization and sign-up The tournament brackets will be on Challonge, so register and join the tournament there using the button below. Please sign up in advance! Please use your in game account name to make communication and finding your enemy easier. In case of problems, contact @4esan4o95 (ingame name: BoxIngJester) or one of the mods via Discord or ingame. Stream A live stream covering the tournament will take place on Eirias' channel on YouTube. Streaming will start around 13:45 p.m. CEST (Berlin time). We will use the stream to communicate with the players, so be sure to join the stream to be notified of last minute updates. Everyone is welcome to hang out and watch the action as well! Rules (read this!) • Disconnection during a game results in a default loss. If both sides agree, it is possible to have a remake. • Not showing up to your match after 15 minutes results in a default loss. The plan is to play a round of matches every ~30 mins. • After your match, go to Challonge and insert the result. That is done by clicking on your match and selecting the winner/stats. The brackets will be updated automatically. • The Map Pool is: Haladur, Simai, Elyon, Lajesh, Uro and Yrmia (same pool as in ranked duel). • The first map to play on will be decided by the players banning maps. The first player to ban is decided at random. • After that it is loser's choice, but you can't pick a map you have already won a game on in the same set. • The winning player (who won the previous match in the bo3) also has to lock in his deck first. • The brackets for the tournament will be shuffled before the tournament starts! • Use your BattleForge name for the tournament. If your Challonge account differs from your BattleForge account name, use the "Sign up with an alternate name" feature or change your name for the tournament in the settings. Finding your opponent will be a LOT easier this way. • Playing at least two rounds in the tournaments will earn you 1 General Booster, even if you lost both rounds. This is meant to encourage players to give PvP a try, immediately surrendering or not showing up for a match will disqualify you for this reward. Special Thanks Special thanks to @4esan4o95 who will be in charge of organizing the tournament on the event day and hyping this tournament already in advance. Also, big thanks to @Eirias for agreeing to stream the tournament. Thanks also to everyone, who sponsored something to the prize pool: @eltorro: 3 General Boosters @triggz: 8 General Boosters @4esan4o95: 7 General Boosters @Yuah: 7 General Boosters @Metagross31: Set of Rebirth Edition PvP cards The Skylords Reborn Team: The remaining General Boosters and 1500 BFP Questions Reply in this thread if you have questions, we will answer them as soon as possible. Best regards, The Skylords Reborn Team and 4esan4o95
  13. Is there any chance, that in the future there will ever be an option to play them without replays breaking by somehow providing old gameversions in some way? Also, what about the "flying units can open gold chests" bug?
  14. Also note, that everything is 100% free now. There is no way to buy ingame stuff with real life money anymore.
  15. At the end of the survey, there is a 16 character code. You have to enter this code ingame in the market window. This will automatically add 2 boosters to your inventory.
