I propose a section of this forum dedicated to sharing and commenting on replays. (Obviously this shouldn't be a priority because the open stress test comes first.) This would be something like the devplatform or cardbase, but would be a site for uploading and finding specific replays. Someone recently asked me for some replays. I was going to refer him to bfcards.info, but it looks like that site has been taken down. Hence the need for a new site. (btw, if anyone knows who ran bfcards.info, please refer him to this thread) bfcards.info was a place where people uploaded replays, and others commented on the replays and voted (1-5 stars) to help people sift through and find relevant replays to learn from. If anyone has a backup of those replays (or has other replays saved that they want to contribute), then let's use this thread to coordinate the sharing of replays. I know several players such as @RadicalX and @Anonymos have shared some replays from their personal repository with me, but I want a more centralized location. One way or another a replay-sharing page needs to be built. I can't think of any reasons that the devs wouldn't set it up on this forum (eventually), but if they don't there's nothing stopping us from independently setting up such a site. So let's discuss some useful features! I think each replay uploaded should include 1. Map 2. Time of match 3. orbs played 4. player names and ranks (at least approximation of ranks) 5. date played/uploaded 6. If it's ranked/unranked or part of a tournament 7. comment section and 1-5 star rating from viewers 8. Tags And we should probably create a list of pre-made tags that can be easily searched, like "long t1" or "t1 rush" or "no t3" or "big t3," etc. I hesitate to suggest tags like "no lamer" because that might cause some flame wars. . . . So what do you guys think are any other features that should be in the Replay Repository? And until a repository is set up, if anyone has replayed uploaded to google drive or dropbox or anything, feel free to share them here!
Hi fellow skylords since the beta release oif bafo is comiung i was wondering if there was a way to create some kind of severspace connectet to this forum where we could share replays [upload/downbload] of pvp and pve matches with the comunity. i dont think it is very important in those early stages but a sort of official replay portal would be really nice to prevent chaos or the need to rely on sites like bfcards.info [wow that still exists]
Hey, sorry for the hiatus. I'm back, and we've got two replays that are going up (first one is below) co-commentated with @RadicalX @LagOps @Hirooo @Dexirian better come cast with me quick before RadicalX becomes permanent For anyone new who doesn't know about the channel, I do replays (and some other stuff, sometimes) at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZLtgBj59SBfIZzcYWbxJVg and https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxf9iCqSdQSr0zc389NYemA
I was thinking about how we could increase awareness of this project and attract new players, and I remembered a site I spent a lot of time on back in my Command & Conquer days before the original Battleforge was released: gamereplays.org This site is mainly dedicated to Command & Conquer and similar RTS. It has a great replay system and has portals for each game that have news, tips, guides, forums, and etc. There were several threads back in 2009 on the GR forums about Battleforge and possibly adding a portal to the site, but all of the negative experiences people had with the game were regarding the fact that it was a pay2win grind-fest (GR consists mostly of competitive RTS players who want a fair playing field). Now that the game is no longer going to be pay2win, and we have the opportunity to minimize/eliminate grinding (I really hope the devs do this, as it would be incredibly healthy for the playerbase), I think that the people at GR would be very interested in Battleforge. The site has over 215,000 registered users and there seems to be around 500 people active at any given time; so getting a portal added to the site (visibility from the home page) would be a massive free advertisement for us. Additionally, it would provide us with a very nice replay + discussion system to use. The replay system is what the site was built on and has features such as likes, searching, sorting, sharing, commenting, reviews, and casting integration (IIRC). I think that when the game is finally officially released, we should start a new thread in their forums and create a petition to show how big our community already is (this is important, because creating a new portal and adding replay support involves a significant of work for them). In the meantime, it certainly wouldn't hurt to mention the project in a new thread on their forums, just to raise awareness of the project. What do you guys think of this? I really want to do everything we can to make sure the game doesn't end up dead again shortly after its release. In any case, I used to be a writer for GR, so when the game is released I will be messaging some admins about the possibility of adding a portal; but it will definitely take the support of the Battleforge community to actually make it happen.
