Skylords Reborn course set out by Devs

Recommended Posts

At several threads, podcasts and shoutbox conversations the Devs mentioned things that will be changed and things that will stay the same in Skylords Reborn. This thread is meant as a summary of these decisions/proposals so people can easily see the course that is set out by the Devs for our beloved game. Of course keep in mind that the Devs can always change their mind and not everything mentioned here is a final decision (I will update this post if anything changes).

Confirmed to stay the Same:
1. First of all the Devs made it very clear that they want to release the game as close as possible to the old Battleforge (last version). So all 'core' parts of the game will be included. (Podcast #1 with Dexirian)
2. It will still be possible to earn upgrades for your cards (U1, U2, U3). (Podcast #1 with Dexirian)
3. Cards (balancing) wont get changed in the first release, Devs will make some changes after the server is fully working. (Podcast #1 with Dexirian)
4. BFP currency will not be removed and players won't start with all cards (InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/772-please-remove-bfp-give-us-all-cards-instant/&page=2)
6. Setting the in-game avatar to card pictures will still be a bfp-paid feature , altering this price of this is still up for discussion in the future (MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/801-ingame-avatars/)
7. It will only be possible to make one character for each account (at least at the initial release because this is a client limitation) (Blank @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1025-multiple-characters/#comment-24368 / InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1196-past-broadcast-05092015)
8. "if we do our jobs the cards will ~ be valued the same" (Blank @ chat 24-08-2015)

Changes:
1. The way to acquire BFP will change, it will not be possible to pay for BFP or anything else (except donations for the server). (Podcast #1 with Dexirian)
2. To earn BFP, a daily quest system will be implemented, also BFP earnings based on time played will be added (with a soft or hard cap). BFP can also be earned by tournaments and events like map making. (Podcast #1 with Dexirian / MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1163-current-proposal-rewards/)
3. Proposed booster ratio (not final): 1th card: 19.5% chance ultra rare, 80% chance rare and 0,5% chance of getting a promo, 2th card: 20% chance rare, 80% chance uncommon, 3th card: 25% chance uncommon, 75% chance common, 4th card is uncommon, 5th,6th,7th and 8th card are commons (MrXLink @ Twitch chat during broadcast 5-9-2015)
5. 1bfp boosters will disappear. (InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/736-1bfp-boosters-news/)
6. There will only be more than one type of boosters 
7. Daily Rewards such as "login and earn bfp" aren't going to exist. (InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1107-questionbfp-s/#comment-25859)
8. The token currency will be removed from the game (InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1196-past-broadcast-05092015 / MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1116-bfps-at-the-start/#comment-26155 / MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1275-current-proposal-tokens-gold)
9. Gold will be used to buy card upgrades (token replacement) (InsaneHawk @ 
http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1196-past-broadcast-05092015 / MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1227-the-point-of-two-currencies/#comment-28110 / MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1275-current-proposal-tokens-gold)
10. Gold cannot be sent through in-game mails (and still also not be traded) (MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1227-the-point-of-two-currencies/#comment-28110 / http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1227-the-point-of-two-currencies/#comment-28166 / MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1275-current-proposal-tokens-gold)

11) Multi-accounting is strictly forbidden

12) The starting F2P deck from the original Battleforge will not still be the starting deck. It will however be a deck only consisting of commons (MrXLink)

13) New Loot list implemented.
14) Faction boosters are in development.


Other info:
1. The technical Alpha will start at 30 September 2015(DragonOfTime @ chat 20-08-2015 / fiki574 @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/572-bfreborn-faq/)
2. The technical Alpha will only consists of the forge + social features, so no real missions/pvp. (Podcast #1 with Dexirian)
3. Access to the Technical Alpha will be given to 20 selected members who contribute value to the community on the forum, so it is not based on the amount of posts. Later the amount of people will be increased. (Podcast #1 with Dexirian / InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1196-past-broadcast-05092015 / InsaneHawk @ Teamspeak 6-9-2015)
4. There is no expected release date set (yet). (Podcast #1 with Dexirian)
5. Donators will not get any in-game reward (InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/687-donator-badge-reward-boost-for-donators/ & DragonOfTime @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/935-about-bfp-and-promo-cards/#comment-24128 )
6. No different language forums will be implemented as the Devs want the community together in one place (MrXLink @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/907-need-create-russian-forum/&page=2/#comment-22786)
7. People for the closed beta will be more randomly selected members than for the closed technical alpha (InsaneHawk @ http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/1196-past-broadcast-05092015)

I will try to keep this post updated as much as possible, but in case I missed something or misinterpreted something, please let me know (preferable with a reference or quote from the Devs).

Thank you for this summary! I can now redirect new members to this post so that they don't have to keep on asking the same questions over and over again.

Shouldn't 5. be : " BFP will not be removed and the players won't start with all the cards"?

I think that is also covered by the one saying that everyone will start with the same F2P deck as in the original Battleforge, but to make it as clear as possible, I will add it also to 5 explicitly. Thanks.

I got another change: All different editions will be in the same booster. Now as for the source, I'm not sure, he might have said it in the podcast, I might have heard it around here, but I'm pretty sure the info is legit.

Interesting, any information on the amount of entry level cards in the market? Or how the prices will be set?

As far as I know, they still don't know how the prices will be set/amount of entry cards in the market. Only thing we really know is that they will put cards in AH with prices they think are right.

There is a tool called *rarity desirability value* which shows you detailed worth of cards on a huge scale.
One is on battleforge wiki for example :P

The Devs (Dexirian, I think) also mentioned in the shoutbox that the starting cards might be up for modification depending on how things go. I'd imagine the decision would be made between alpha and beta, but I was told it may even happen after beta (if starting cards are going to change, we need to make a good case for it).

 

The replay viewer will also presumably be ready when alpha is released. I asked @InsaneHawk if there was a way to release the replay viewer before the rest of the game so we could view old replays--he said that was not possible, but the devs wouldn't mind posting some replays before alpha was released if we sent them. I'd rather the devs spend their time on the game rather than posting replays, but I deduce from that statement that the replay viewer will be working before alpha is released. Also, the replay viewer will be able to view any replays after the last patch, but none before then.

 

Unfortunately, those statements were made on the old shoutbox, so I can't direct you to them...
