Changes to Beta Updates

from The Forge of Empires team on 10/7/15 at 12:05 am

Hello Beta Testers,

Over the last few months, we have been analyising the effectiveness of Beta. As we all know, there have been some issues with how the update process is currently rolled out, resulting in bugs being carried over to live which could be avoided. On the back of this, it has been decided to change the update process for us here on the Beta server.

As of Wednesday October 7th 2015, Beta will receive updates every day, rather than every 2 weeks. These daily updates will include bug fixes and changes from work done the previous day. The update will take place at about 8am German time, Monday - Friday. The reason for this change is mostly to afford us the best opportunity here on Beta to find and catch bugs ASAP, and then to test the code which is put in place to fix those bugs, and to react better to the feedback we receive from you daily.

There are a few things about the change that me and my team are a little unsure on, for example, will we still have missions? How will missions work if we do? Will we get event based content in a timed manner in the same way we currently do? Rest assured, I will be asking these questions, and anymore you have, and will update this post and the feedback thread when I know the answers. You can post your feedback, comments and questions in this thread. We will try our best to get answers for all questions asked ASAP.

We're also aware with this change, we're going to need to rethink how we structure things here on the forum, and how we communicate changes to you. This is currently unclear, but as soon as this is decided, I'll add to this thread.

Thank you as always for your continued support, feedback and criticism. It is through you that these changes are coming to life.

The Beta Team

Changelog 1.47 - Easter Event Beta Release

from The Forge of Empires team on 3/13/15 at 1:28 am

Hello Beta Testers,

The Beta Server has been updated to version 1.47. This update contains the Beta release of the Easter Event for 2015! All active accounts have been credited with 1000 Diamonds to assist with testing the event and the update. As always, this update we are running missions to help identify issues. A regression mission for the update (click here), a mission for the Easter Event (click here) and a second mission for the Tomorrow Era (click here)

We also still have a feedback thread for the Tomorrow Era (click here), a feedback thread for the update 1.47 (click here) and a feedback thread for the Easter Event (click here). Please remember, these threads are for feedback, not bugs. Please post bugs in the aforementioned mission threads.

Thank you for your continued support, "Hoppy"Hunting!

The Beta Team

Changes

In battles a unit will now always issue at least 1 damage point on its target. It doesn't matter how big the gap between the units ages is. This change was introduced to avoid possible stalemates. Units that can hide (and thus become immune to distance attacks during a battle) of course keep their ability.
The chat and social bar are now disabled during the tutorial to make sure that new players are not distracted by irrelevant parts of the user interface.
Missile Artillery isn't vanishing anymore in GvG if the attacked army gets defeated by another player before the fight is over. We have changed this behavior basing on your feedback.

Improvements

The tournament notification window was introduced to the game:

Additionally, players who did not participate in any recent tournament, will see a new pop-up window that will inform them about a just-finished tournament and offer a possibility to join the upcoming ones.

Bugfixes

Defender could see the attacker's unattached units in battle result screen, as they were marked with the unattached badge. It's not possible any more.
Smoke animations were only shown for watchfire in other players' cities. From now on they will be shown correctly for all buildings.
In some cases it was possible to place a building outside of the city area by using the swap function.
Blimps of finished constructions were shown to visiting players in the very moment when the construction was completed.

A few Flash errors occurring in various circumstances and different areas of the game were fixed:

1. After accepting a merchant offer in the market.
2. After returning to the guild province map from a battle.
3. After locking and then unlocking a computer while the game was open all the time in the background.

Introducing: Forge of Empires Beta - Level System

from The Forge of Empires team on 1/17/15 at 12:17 am

Hello Beta Testers,

With the introduction of Seasons (Click here for info on Seasons), we have started the ball rolling on some big changes here on the Beta Server. We have another exciting change to announce to you all today, namely, the Forge of Empires Beta Server Level System. The level system is a way for us to recognise and reward long term contributions to testers who really put in the time and effort to improve Forge of Empires. Again, the concept is a simple one, but is hopefully to your liking.

Level System Overview:
Essentially, the levels system is a way for testers to show off their contributions to the Forge of Empires community. Testers will be given a title, and a forum banner, based on the number of bugs they have reported. This forum banner can only be used here on the Beta server. Each time a tester moves up to a new level they will earn themselves a new title, as well as the reward associated with their new rank. The rank itself doesn't ever expire, so long time testers can show off their experience!

Ranking and Prizes:
Effectively, every valid bug reported in the missions thread will not only net you 40 Diamonds, but will also earn you one point towards your level. Every tester will start out as a Fledgling, and will work their way up through the ranks. Below is a table showing the first few ranks available. There are more, but we are keeping these a secret for now. The higher the rank, the better your reward. The higher ranks will not only earn themselves Diamonds, but additional prizes!

Click here to view the full announcement, as well as the full list of prizes available!


We hope you are as excited for these changes as we are! Active Testers on the Beta Server are crucial to the quality of Forge of Empires. With this new system, we want to make sure you all receive the recognition you deserve!

Introducing: Forge of Empires Beta - Seasons

from The Forge of Empires team on 1/17/15 at 12:11 am

Hello Beta Testers,

To kick things off for the new year, we're introducing some exciting new ways for you all to score some points, and with points comes prizes! The concept is very simple, and is a way for all testers, old and new, to earn themselves some extra Diamonds and other prizes for their play world. We have decided to call this new system Seasons! This new element is coupled with the Level System we have also introduced. Click here to find out more information about the Level System.

Seasons Overview:
The basics are similar to a sports league, in that there is a league table each and everyone can participate in. Every valid bug reported via the missions thread will count towards a testers overall score for that season, and the top ten bug reporters will earn themselves a prestigious position on the league table. Each season will last 3 months, and at the end of the season, the league table will reset. This will ensure that everyone is in with a shot to earn themselves a position on the table, even if they don't get as much of a head start.

Prizes:
Click here to view the full list of prizes
In the link above, you can find the full list of prizes available for the Seasons.

Rules:
There are a few rules, and please also understand that the concept, rules and and the rewards are still currently subject to change.
Only valid bug reports made in the mission forum, and using the template will count toward the Seasons League
Rewards earned can be given either here on the Beta server, or on your play world if you prefer
Each Season will last 3 months - at the end of the Season, the table will be reset
In the event a Mission overlaps a Season ending, the points will be credited to the new Season, not the one which has just ended
In the event of a tie, both players will win the same reward. So if there is a tie for first place, both players win the first place prize. The next person will win third place

We hope you're as excited about this as we are! The Beta Server is the most important server in the entire Forge of Empires community, and we want you all to know how much we appreciate your input.

Let the games begin!
