Guild Update Part 2 & S&F Remastered Part 1
 
Official discussion thread.

Apollo 19th June 2018 01:48 PM

Guild update - international ranking: seems a really good solution to replace the servers fusion! Wouldn't thought about this, well played Playa Games! :) One question though: does only the top1 hero/guild of each COUNTRY fight for the 'international crown', or every top1 hero/guild of each SERVER?

Shakes & Fidget remastered: Nothing to say here, looks like a new and fresh version of the game, can't give my opinion about the graphics because I haven't seen any (besides the link provided of the tavern :P). When will this be released? :)

Don't want to be ungrafetul, but will we have new content besides this awesome-new mechanics? (dungeons, monsters, items, wtv :) )


Don't delete my posts Leander :sf::lol:


EDIT: I recognize that recoding from 0 an entire game is an hard task, and I congratulate Playa for it. But imagine this: what if, instead of taking 1 year and 3 months to design new graphics for the game, they could use that amount of time to create new classes, new dungeons, new portals, whatever it could be...? I think the graphics will be amazing but that's not a priority.

ok so a remaster of existing content and a PVP Hall of Fame for only the #1s

There's going to be a lot of unhappy people lol

so PVP "regardless of Age of Server"

Does this mean s10.sfgame.us #1 could beat s1.sfgame.de #1 even though s1 has been around 4+ years longer and their stats are double?

I felt this is gonna be bad.

We get another remake of game code - in alpha phase (translation: roughly unplayable).

And a new ranking system that plays by itself.


For me if there's nothing new I can do, it's not an update.

1) For every of the 238 servers.
2) Later this year.
3) We know but don't forget there will be another update in fall.

Yes. It's just about local hall of fames first (who's gonna compete) and level and attributes of the hero or the whole guild later (international rankings).

We know it would have been much better with more guilds and heroes per server but as they are 238 servers worldwide, it would have been too performance-heavy with all the calculations required every day.

I might've misunderstood something... what exactly does this "update" do for me if I'm not top 1 on server or guild? Even better, what would it do even if I was? It's a ranking*, it does exactly nothing.

Just maybe, instead of adding pointless rankings every second day you'd consider linking the update to the previously introduced (and pointless as well, mind you) dungeons?

Honestly, I'd prefer if it was just the whole "redesign" and not a time waster. Highly not impressed especially that people in my guild said they will leave if this update doesn't change anything. Well, it doesn't.

Will there be rewards for winning battles?

4.5 years old

I am very disappointed. Literally nothing new for me as a player. I don't care about graphics (who the hell cares about 4K in browser clicking game). I don't really care about rankings (which won't even be relevant since I know there are dozens of stronger guilds and hundreds of stronger players in older servers who won't compete in this new system). New guild dungeons still pointless, nothing new to do...looks like another 3 months (at least) of waiting for new content.

(I wouldn't be that disappointed if you didn't promote this "nothing" as biggest update in 3 years)

I understand that you're disappointed. If you aren't in the top guild/the top hero on your server you don't get anything new. We wanted to add so much more guilds and heroes but it was not possible technically. The update isn't the birthday surprise but S&F Remastered is. The international guild rankings would have been part of the Easter update with the new guild raids but we had to delay it.

High-res graphics don't seem to be that important at first glance but with Adobe Flash already being on the verge of extinction we had to do something about it. Getting rid of a dying Flash base was urgent...and don't forget issues with Flash updates, popup blockers, Flash crashes etc. With S&F Remastered we're on the safe side technically.

Normal game updates will be released later on (the first one this fall).
