English Orpheus - last answer from rebecca077, Saturday 23/07/2011, 16:42.
It’s summer time and vacations in the sun in Clint City. Will we see new couples getting together? Gordon and Felicia both love water, but she spends all her time diving in it, while he uses it to put out fires. Victoria and Stiko are mad about big guns but he uses his for paint ball while she prefers to fire real bullets... No, when all’s said and done it’s a lot easier to fight one another than get it on!Get these characters in the shop's packs

After several months of testing and successive Beta versions, we’ve finally officially launched the new version of the Flash game client. Totally rewritten (in ActionScript3 rather than 2, for those of you who are interested), this version is not only more reliable, faster and safer, it also allows us to add new features more easily.
We’ve done everything in our power to ensure you Don’t feel disorientated when moving from the old version to the new. However, some of the options that were active by default will no longer be available. The purpose of this guide is to tell you about what’s new, what’s gone and the options available on this new version.

Losses:
- The menu on the bottom left in the list of players has been replaced by an “exit game” button.
- The info of % from the collection has been removed from the lower screen bar.

New features:
- Players’ photos appear in the list of players and during the fight.
- (Optional) animations for the effects of the abilities between rounds (life wins, poisons, etc.).
- The (optional) display of the “free” Pillz and processing of this in the counters.
- Indication of the time left in a round in minutes and seconds.
- Button allowing you to pass from normal mode to accelerated mode to display animations.
- Pillz played in the previous round will be displayed.
- Descriptions of the characters, clans, abilities and bonuses will be displayed directly in the game.
- Addition of the directly usable XP in the end of fight summary.
- Addition of several different types of music depending on the clans visible on the ground.

What is the “free” Pillz?
The “Free” Pillz has always existed. It’s the Pillz that is added to your character when you play him or her. In the previous version of the game, if you had 10 Pillz on your counter, your character could have a maximum of 11 times its power (10 Pillz + the start-up Pillz). So in the previous game when you were calculating the number of Pillz your opponent could play, you would add “+1” to the amount displayed on the counter. The discrepancy between the information displayed and the actual information has always bothered us, which is why in the new version, the game “shows” you the free Pillz in the counter so you no longer have to add 1 when making your calculations. The figure displayed in your opponent’s counter is the exact figure. The game system hasn’t changed. We’ve just changed the way the information is displayed.

If you are bothered by the free Pillz being displayed:
Although we think this new display is an improvement on the old version, we realize that veteran players, used to the old system, might be bothered by it. If so, Don’t worry. Simple go to game options (the little button on the bottom left during the game) and deactivate the free Pillz display. You will then return to the previous system. We do however advise you to give the new system a try.
Hello all,

If you think the game seems “slower”:
As we’ve added animations to certain stages that were previously invisible, the game may seem slower than previously. But Don’t worry. If you’re in a hurry, you can deactivate most of the animations for an overall speed that is faster than the previous version. Once in game options, the best settings for optimizing speed are: activate “speed up fight animation”, deactivate “inter-round animations”. Tip: you can hit the “enter” button repeatedly to validate pop-ups and quickly go back for another round.

Have fun

The Leader of the Berzerk Clan comes out from the shadows. Cortez is all set to finish off the enemy and Vivian jumps on board his crusade of violence. But before things really hot up, the Piranas send Coleridge out on a scouting mission to fly over the Red One Motel. And with fighting in the air, the Fang Pi Clang's nurse, Kusuri, is certainly going to have her work cut out!Get these characters in the shop's packs

Hello everybody,

Saturday afternoon, one of our servers hosting a part of battle started to slightly slow down, cause huge slowdowns in some game rooms. The problem became obvious from 12h pm (GMT +2) and was temporarily corrected around 1h30pm (GMT +2). A definitive correction is being developed.

Moreover, monday around 12h am (GMT +2), when Harrow Ld became unavailable, a glitch appeared in the little legendary module and made the website impossible to access after the first page. The problem has been solved around 7h30 am (GMT +2).

Please excuse us for all those issues, we hope there won't be anymore for some time.

There's a very strange show on offer for the citizens of Clint City this week. The Freaks boost their numbers with Rhyno, the er...rhino-man. The Vortex get fat on pizzas from the CXXI Century, delivered by Marty. And of course, the Berzerk Clan continues to expand with the arrival of the rather unpresentable Drummond and Revok, who’s gone from being slightly weird to full-on crazy.Get these characters in the shop's packs

Wild at HeartDo you believe in love at first sight? Taylor and Lola do. From the very first moment they laid eyes on each other, they knew they were made to live together, united in their love of Rock n' Roll and adventure. But what they didn’t then know was that one day they would join the Berzerk clan and fight alongside Melanie, the chamber-maid and Gus, the rat-catcher. Together they’ve joined forces with the other Berzerk members and are all set to make their opponents quake in their boots.Get these characters in the shop's packs

Greetings.

The moderators currently online have seen dozens of reports come in in the past hour. There is definitely something odd going on right now, yes. The admin staff is looking into it. I expect that it will resolve itself in a little while, but in the meantime, here are two quick fixes that I hope will help:

1) Go to adobe.com, and make sure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed.

2) Clear out your internet cache. (How to do so depends on your browser.)

Log out, then log back in. That fixes most tech issues. If that doesn't help, and you've LOST something as a result, you need to contact Customer Support, via the green ? tab in the upper right. (If you haven't lost anything, and it's simply an annoyance, please be patient, and let the admins work their magic. ;-] )

Also - Keep an eye on here the Staff Announcements. The admins will post when the glitches have been fixed, or provide an update with further instructions.

Good luck, and thanks for your patience!!

As of January 31st 2011, Copper, Bridget, Rolph, Rowdy, Lou, Shann, Emeth and Oshitsune will join the list of characters permanently banned by the staff in the ELO mode.
This month will also see the launch of some new experiments in ELO. During the weeks to come it will no longer be possible to play “semi-evolved” characters in this mode. In addition to this, the starting life points in the ELO room will be set at 15.
If these changes prove to be successful, they can become a permanent feature.

You’ve been asking for a more strategic ELO mode with a less decisive chance factor (on cards draw and pillz).
Semi-evo cards appeared to be a big advantage for those who can afford them. We’ve hesitated quite a while on banning them because we didn’t want to deprive you of using some interesting and balanced semi-evo characters but there are just a few of them compared to all those which can skew the game. From now you’ll have to fully evolve your characters if you want to use them in ELO.
Regarding the life points rise, it will prevent the easy two-shots and then reduce the domination of high damage characters. They are still important in this mode but they won’t be able to win the match too easily now.
It’s still a test. Don’t hesitate to tell us your feelings about it on the forum so as to make the ELO mode satisfactory for everyone.

We've already told you that we were going to see how things would be going with the secret voting system about possible changes in ELO mode. And that's exactly what we’ve done.

Firstly, we’ve decided to leave the voting system as it is. It works well and should work even better in the future with characters banned thanks to votes.

We've checked voting results and the most frequently played characters in ELO stats.
We've decided to permanently ban 5 characters: Kolos, Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah.

Kolos is permanently banned because it was obvious that you did not want him in ELO any more. He’s been banned nearly every weeks since the voting system release and we thought it was pointless to keep on using your votes against him.

Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah have also been frequently banned by your votes so we thought that these permanent bans would offer a fairer game.
Admittedly Ratanah was banned less often than Shakra but we calculated that her ban would greatly help in reducing the Roots' dominance while still making them playable. Whereas Shakra’s ban would have left the Roots with very strong chances of building powerful half-decks for a reasonable amount of stars.

We didn’t want to ban any All Stars or Piranas (Smokey or Striker, for example) even if they were concentrating a large part of votes. We figured out you would be more free to vote and decide by yourselves which characters need to be remove from ELO.

Have fun !

Hello all,

We’ve just made a new Deathmatch update. No need to report us problems you had before this update if they are in the list below. Of course, if you keep on having the same problems in spite of this update, then report them to us.

The persecution penalty decreases from -10 to -5 points (we like the idea but we also understand that it can be a pain).

The glitch which was throwing us out of DM room and make us join the Fight Club (teleportation glitch) is solved.

The bonus points gained after 4 victories in a raw are reduced from 20 to 15. But the run doesn’t stop there, you’ll keep on wining these 15 points after 5, 6, 7 victories, etc.

New bonus : if you are the first one winning a match in a DM (10 points)

New bonus : if you win a match after a run of 3 or more defeats (15 points)

New bonus : if you make a player lose while he/she was having a 3+ victories run (15 points)

New bonus : if you beat a higher lever player (5 points)

the timer per round is 15 seconds shorter.

Enjoy!

For those of you who didn’t watch Clint TV last night, here’s a rundown of the finals of Clint City Idol! Cherry opened the show and set the night on fire with her feminist pop songs. Stella won the hearts of all her intergalactic fans despite singing in Glinkon dialect. And although Bianca’s musical outpourings weren’t a huge hit with the young, that wouldn't have stopped the judges, who’d been paid-off by the Uppers, from voting for her. But when Russel underwent his transformation and started howling at the moon, there was no doubt about it - a voice like that definitely deserved first prize!!

The judge of the Clint City Book of Records is in a tricky position. Just who is going to receive the cup for the Most Useless Record in Clint City? Will it be Dallas, who throws all sorts of heavy objects impossible distances? Ernst, the rat-man who devours all living creatures lurking in the sewers? Or Ace, Borgia Palace's most skilful and dishonest croupier? Oh, if only he knew just how many creatures Felix, the radioactive flea who gave Logan his special powers, had bitten, he’d surely take the prize!

After a somewhat shaky start, Scott Ld is now a fully-fledged member of the Rescue clan. He’s even got a bit too full of himself and is already thinking about taking over from his aunt Kerry in a year or two’s time! So to calm him down a bit, his aunt has decided to send him on a series of missions that should keep him busy for a while…

Scott Ld is a legendary character who is only available by carrying out missions associated with him. To get hold of this character, you must unlock his last mission by Sunday, May 1st at the latest.

Hello all !

So as to offer to event organizers more possibilities, two new features have been released and are available right now on the event administration tab ( https://img.skitch.com/20110411-eqx35g9bk7r4rn4yurh4sbjesf.png ).

Accept random players:
This new features allows you to fill all available room in your event thanks to a random selection of players waiting to be accepted. If your event has no limited number of players allowed in you can specify it. This tool takes into account the number of players already allowed in (manually or not) your event.
IMPORTANT: the selected players will be allowed in your event and those who are not selected will be automatically refused!

Refuse all waiting players:
This tool will let you empty the list of players waiting in two clicks. Of course you’ll have to confirm this action so as to avoid accidents.

If you meet some problems with these tools, Don’t hesitate to report them to the customer support.

Have fun!

After having tried out various partners, it seems that Crassus has finally found the perfect assistant. Bikini Joe Ld arrived in town full of expectations and hoping to make everyone cry…with laughter. And perhaps with the support of the other Freaks he might at least one day manage to stop crying!

The carefree days are over. Sweet Rosen is obliged to leave her forest to fight alongside the Roots riding on a giant sparrow. Copper's aunt Martha throws herself into the fray and Neil joins forces with the Junkz, despite his delicate condition. The Vortex Clan have got a tough job ahead of them, especially with people like Negodz on their side, who’s using the war to traffic in future technology...

Caelus has been head of the Skeelz Academy for so long now, he'd more or less become part of the furniture. So when he announced his retirement, it came as a huge shock to both his students and colleagues. But they'll be even more surprised when they hear he's decided to devote himself to his secret passion of darts, playing alongside Robb, the undisputed master of the discipline. And in return, the old teacher will initiate Robb in the strange arts of reading and writing... So, it looks like our two old hands have a good few hours of learning ahead of them!!
