Community update #5 - June 19th 2021


Recommended Posts

Greetings Skylords!

It's been two weeks already since our last community update so it's time to bring you up to speed with everything going on in Skylords Reborn!

New Logo

Already teased in the updated Discord icons and Facebook profile, we also have a new logo! We are very happy with our fresh new look, which inspired us to also take another look at our landing page. Nothing to share yet there, but we are currently in the first stages of a redesign, and hope to share more with you in the future.

We'd also like to take this time to let you know we are going to post these Community Updates on our Reddit as well. Please make sure to follow us there if that is your preferred platform to stay up to date on Skylords Reborn. 


New cards are now in development

As mentioned in the last Community Update, the exciting moment has come to design brand new cards for the game. We will release these new cards in batches, instead of a full expansion. Our plan for the first batch is to create new cards for 3 different factions, with up to 9 cards added in total. We are also planning to add affinities to some, if not all, of these cards.

The past week, patrons with the Moon tier or higher were able to vote for their favorite factions. We are excited to announce the 3 factions that will receive new cards:

- Frost
- Amii (Shadow / Nature)
- Bandits (Shadow / Fire)

Don't worry, we plan to add new cards for each faction over time, the voting only impacted the order of our release. Since this is new territory for us, we are currently not able to say when new cards will be ready, and when the vote for the next batch will be. We will be actively working on this, but we don't want to rush out new cards.

Expansion Icon

New cards need a new expansion icon! The community was able to vote for their favorite icon on our social media (Twitter, Discord, Facebook and Reddit). All icons (from left to right: Phoenix, Ouroboros, Triskelion and Lotus) were symbols of Rebirth, which we found fitting for the current stage of the project. The votes were extremely close, with our Discord community heavily leaning towards Ouroboros, while the other media were rallying behind the Phoenix icon. Here is the icon you can expect on our upcoming cards (not just the factions mentioned above):

Until further notice, all upcoming Skylords Reborn cards will have this icon. We are also looking into creating multiple versions of this expansion symbol, depending on the rarity. And of course not all cards will be ultra rare. Please note again: new cards have now started development, but we have no specific cards to share at this moment. 

Thank you all for your votes and comments, and thank you Tweeto for your awesome work!


New Patch on the test server

A lot is happening on the test server as well. A large patch has hit the test server on the 9th of June. 
The patch contains many balancing changes and experimental changes. Please take a look at the patch notes, test them out on the test server and take place in the discussion.

Speaking of discussions, we would like your help in making a decision regarding the card Unity and if it should only effect own units or also allies.
Please check out our Unity poll here.

Upcoming Tournaments

• FINISHED Official PvE Contest#1 Siege of Hope 
The first official PvE contest on Siege of Hope is now finished! We will announce the winners in a stream on the 26th of June at 19:00 CEST.
We will also do some giveaways, so even if you did not participate; we invite you all to join us!

Want to host a tournament or event? Please reach out to our Event Organiser Hiko to have your events prizes sponsored by the Skylords Reborn team. If you got 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. 

 

New Art for Firesworn

Besides a new Logo and Icon, our artist Tweeto has been working on adjusting the art of Firesworn. As most would agree, Firesworn always felt a bit off compared to the other fire cards. Tweeto made a few changes to make it feel more in line with the rest of your deck. We hope you like it! 
 

Current Artwork

Adjusted Artwork

The artwork has not yet been adjusted in-game yet. We expect to add it in an upcoming content update to the live server. 

There are still some cards we would like to give a slight upgrade, but we will only do so if there are no other tasks with more priority to work on. With new cards in development, new artworks for those cards currently have more priority. 


New Team Members / Team Changes

Our moderation team welcomes a new (old) member! Bradley will be helping us out with moderation again.

We are also happy to announce our first official Map Designer: Hodron! 
Right now he is spending a lot of time on designing the new rPvE presets mentioned in the last community update; specifically what units and or bosses you will encounter. 

Our developer _empty_ stepped down from his position. He worked on creating the installer used by new players to more easily be able to install and play the game. We would to again thank him for his contributions!

Additionally, we will soon be adding at least one new server developer. 

We have also added a new role into our open positions; Marketeer/Outreach Coordinator. As an Outreach Coordinator you are responsible to spread the word and create awareness about Skylords Reborn and to attract veteran and new players alike. This includes actively researching and reaching out to potentially interested influencers, streamers, youtubers, Discord channels, game magazines, among others. 

As always; if you want to see Skylords Reborn succeed, please take a look at how you can help. There are still some open positions in our team.

@Tweeto The new logo fits very well, amazing job. The Firesworn artwork always stood out, especially the weird blob arm with messed up anatomy. Great to have skilled artists on board of the project that can make things like this a reality. Can't wait to see the new cards.

I hope at some point in-game textures will see some love too. Thinking mostly about Ironclad and how its card artwork looks absolutely stunning with all the hues of blue and slight purple. Yet in-game it has these ugly dark green and turquoise tones. Never stops being a disappointment when I summon one.

I really enjoy these updates because it just shows how much is going on with the project and how many different people on all kinds of fronts are pouring their time and effort into it.

Since I saw you're adding a marketing coordinator role I was wondering if you're planning to do some data analysis in the future on marketing data as well as player data?
If you'll need some help with that, feel free to hit me up via pm!
