Hello Skylords, Skyladies and Skythings, First of all we hope you all enjoyed the Stream this weekend! As many of you are aware, Open Beta means that a game is open to every player for a final test of the game and to help check for more bugs and errors that could possibly have been missed in Closed Beta. Open Beta Information All the information you need regarding Open Beta can be found in this thread. Please don't spread false information to the community. When Is Open Beta? To find out when Open Beta will be out check out this thread for more details; How do you sign up for Open Beta? You can sign up for Open Beta by simply just creating an account on our forums. Who can get access to Open Beta? Everyone will get into Open Beta unless you have sadly made your way onto our blacklist due to severe rule breaking. Please note if you keep harassing members of staff for access to the game in Closed or Open Beta you will possibly risk getting black listed. Client download You can pre-download the client using Mediafire or MEGA.nz. You cannot start the game right now, you'll have to wait for open beta, and the release of our launcher to make it work. Our Global links Our global links can be found here on our forums to the top right of the screen or at the very bottom of the page (we only have an official Facebook, Twitter, Twitch and YouTube). Other Medias The VK Skylords Reborn page is a fan made page, we will NEVER ask for any payments. Our old domain bfreborn.com has been bought by someone who is pretending to be this project. Supporting the project You can help support us if you wish on our Patreon page only. The game will be 100% FREE. Advertising We are currently talking with streamers and a website in order to let the world know about this project. We however currently have no advertising budget. Players can make videos or stream Open Beta if they wish. All we ask of streamers is that they inform viewers that the game is currently in an Open Beta stage that will be reset at the end along with it possibly containing bugs and crashes along with other issues and that a link to our Forums is provided so people can find out more about the project along with and possibly signing up themselves if they wish. Recruitment We may be looking for moderators in US timezone in the future. We are always looking for developers with advance or expert experience in C++ and networking (in software/programming). Running Requirements BattleForge is an old game so will run on basically anything. To see full spec details feel free to check out our Wiki page here, or you can check on the CYRI website here. Giveaways Giveaways are currently closed. You can’t take part in these by simply keeping an eye on our #giveaway channel on our Discord server and our giveaway section of the forums. To participate in the giveaway on our Discord you will normally need to react with the right emotion, beware it can change to a new one. The last phase should be the real deal. We'll have finished our AntiCheat and certainly will have to reset all players' accounts in order to make it fair for everyone because phase is also marked as a "Release Candidate". The real playing should start here. So, be advised not to "no-life" in early phases, rather wait for the last phase and in the meantime play casually. If you have any questions or queries please feel free to ask them below or send me or @MrXLink a PM and we will try our best to answer them as much as we can. See you all in the forge soon! ============================= Important notes from @fiki574 regarding Open Beta: Promo cards - Will be in booster packs, except for the event promos like Santa and Easter Egg which will be related to the seasonal event. Boosters - Boosters will be a mixture of all sets for now. Speed run / map of the month - Will be available at start of Open Beta. Starter decks - You will start with 4 different starter decks, one of each color (Fire, Frost, Nature, Shadow). Tomes - Tomes will not be in Skylords Reborn at all. New accounts - All players will have new accounts and will be named the same as their Forum account this is due to us not having access to the data files from EA regarding accounts.
Hi all, I first want to say I am extremely pleased to see this project come so far. I cannot wait for the open beta release. However, I think we can all agree, that when the game launches again it will be in a bit of an odd place. To my knowledge, many of the tools a studio would use grow its community (such as ads) will not be available to the Skylords Reborn team. The community must grow organically through word of mouth. I expect that many in the community will be more than happy to invite their friends to play, but I do think the amount of players drawn in this way will be negligible as Battleforge is an aging game, and despite having the rights to modify the game client, brand new content (cards, maps, extra features) is unlikely. People who have not played the game before may not see the same appeal that we do. So I think it is safe to conclude much of the community will consist of past players and will grow at a relatively slow rate. I say all of this because of the account reset that is planned before the full release. To some this may seem logical, but again, think objectively of what the possibilities for the growth of this community really is and where many of the players are coming from. If there was good reason to believe that upon full release of the game that there would be a plethora of new players, it may be wise to start everyone off on the same foot. However, as I said before, there will likely be little in the way of new blood. With the somewhat extended nature of the open beta cycle (most players will have likely played through all available game content during this time), an account reset stands to fracture the size of the community. I would love to know more about the specifics of what an account reset hopes to solve.
