Battle Royale & Teammate Medal

Postby lackattack on Fri Jul 13, 2012 8:41 am

Battle Royale

The Battle Royale is a large multiplayer player game, where each player only starts with 1 or 2 territories. Do you have what it takes to compete against so many opponents at once? It's chaotic, with people getting eliminated left and right. The overall winner is a true survivor, and usually the recipient of lots of points! Back in the day Death to All used to start Battle Royale games for a lucky few members to play, but he hasn't done this since 2007. So we've made Battle Royales a regular occuring event and easily accessible to all Premium members. All games are on a specially designed exclusive map created by samuelc812 (click map thumbnail to preview):

Colosseum Battle Royale Map

We added a new email notification on the Game Settings page for opening turns in Battle Royale games, so you can get emails for these special games even if you have them turned off for regular casual games. There is always one freestyle and one sequential Battle Royale open, and the other game options are shuffled according to a formula that we will tweak over time based on your feedback. You can join one Battle Royale every 30 days, and over time we might adjust the frequency and also add more Battle Royale maps.

Thanks to Gilligan for suggesting regular Battle Royales.


Teammate Medal

We have a new medal for you to win:

TheOtherOne wrote:I believe that there should be a medal for playing and winning with unique teammates. It would encompass all three types of team games. The main reason why this medal should be implemented is to show that the person who attains the medal can work well with a verity of people, and not just the team the player always plays with. It will help when one decides to team up with a player whom he does not know.

Thanks to TheOtherOne for suggesting this medal.

Please Note: Even if you meet the criteria already for this medal, you'll have to win another game to get it.


Join A Game

We've also overhauled the Join A Game page (specifically the Public Games tab) to group together games with the same game options. Often players will create a whole bunch of identical games, which take up much of the first few pages. This is a particular problem for New Recruits, because those games are slower to fill up and are usually on difficult settings. By grouping them together and including a link to load all the matching games, we discourage the "farming" of inexperienced players, make browsing for a new game more pleasant, while still giving players the option of joining all the identical games if they want to. Thanks to JeopardyTempest for suggesting this improvement.

You have to win a game before the medal will be awarded.

I dont like how you promoted only Colloseum Map to be exclusive for battle royale.
And like i repeat several times,its will be nice to have in Personal Menu>Control Panel> Button to remove Conquer Cup menu.

Ofcourse if you stay with Promotion of Colloseum map,then i would use button to remove battle royale from Game menu too .

Yes qwert, we know you don't like these updates, but it doesn't mean you have to complain about all of them just because you don't use them.

Colloseum was designed specifically for Battle Royales, which is why it's the only one available at this time. My guess is that converting normal maps to BRs will only happen for special events and not for everyday accessibility.

Also i would expect that this would open the way for maps to be created in the foundry with a special emphasis on battle royales... only my guess though.

Why do you have "Find at least xx similar games" when they actually lead to exactly this number of similar games?

Good updates, I like both of them. Though I'd prefer people to be able to get extra BR slots somehow.

Hey guys,
I joined a freestyle battle royale game by mistake & dropped it in order to join a sequential one but now it won't let me join for 30 days. Please is there anything you can do so i can join the sequential game?

yay, nice to have a teammate medal!

also, just another suggestion:
sort the "join a game" page from new to old, instead of old to new.
right now, the page you see first has only "farming style" quads on difficult maps, while the last page has way more standard and nice games. turn that around so new recruits see the nice games first!

Thanks Dako :D

To answer your question, it only groups games together on the page that you are viewing. So if there are identical games on other pages, those will also show up when you click on "Find at least xx similar games". I admit that's a bit unintuitive, but it's much easier on the server.

But then the Hard to fill games would become even more ignored?

Any victory will give you the teammate medal if you are entitled to it, the victory does not have to be a team game with a unique opponent.

lackattack wrote:Join A Game

We've also overhauled the Join A Game page (specifically the Public Games tab) to group together games with the same game options. Often players will create a whole bunch of identical games, which take up much of the first few pages. This is a particular problem for New Recruits, because those games are slower to fill up and are usually on difficult settings. By grouping them together and including a link to load all the matching games, we discourage the "farming" of inexperienced players, make browsing for a new game more pleasant, while still giving players the option of joining all the identical games if they want to. Thanks to JeopardyTempest for suggesting this improvement.

This is a step in the right direction, but looking at the new "Join A Game" page it obviously isn´t going far enough. You still have to go to page 3 to actually find the first Standard game on a standard map. So in regards to "farming of inexperienced players" and easy "browsing for new games" this won´t change a whole lot.

To really effectively address the mentioned issues, a more radical approach is needed, as discussed in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=174222

ahunda wrote:a) Make 2 "Join a Game" pages. One for "Beginners" (only showing Sequential Standard games on standard maps), one including everything. Or simply hide all the special games by default, with an expand button "Show advanced/expert games", or something.

b) Hide all the special settings on the "Start a Game" & "Find a Game" pages too, yet again with an expand button "Show advanced/expert settings".

c) Create map categories. Separate the old school Risk style maps from the rest. Only include the standard Risk maps in "Beginners" Join/Find/Start a Game pages. With an expand button to unlock the rest.
