Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] April 14th – Guilds and Card Collections

Children of the night,

guilds are finally here. We define a guild as a group of players that will master some challenges together. The first one will be a raid location called „portals“, which will come later. We want to give you time to organize yourselves in guilds first, so that everybody has the some starting point.

On the main menu is a new icon, a skull. Click on it and you will enter the guild screen.

There you have two tabs, „raids“ to manage raids, and „guild list“. On the „raid“ screen you can either go to your guild page, or create your own guild, and later go raiding. „Guild list“ shows all guilds. You can apply to them on that screen. One sorting option is to sort them by „raid points“, which will be the guilding ranking system.

Guild sizes: The maximum number of members can be 20. We want many guilds and not a few big ones. Later raids will require 10 players. In reality you don’t have that many people who always have time. However, if you have too many members you must make adjustments. How many members you accept is up to you. And of course, we won’t interfere with anything that happens in a guild.

Deck collection:
The second new icon on the menu are the „squares“. There you can sort your cards by sets. All cards in a set are displayed, and the ones you own are in colour whereas the ones you don’t own are faded out. This is for collectors who wanted an overview. Only card sets from boosters are available since sets like „premium“ and so on are never really completed.

Next will be the actual raids and then then region 6, „the infernal planes“.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] March 24th – PvP Season 3 has started

Children of the night,

PvP season 3 has started, meaning that all your ELO rating has been reset.

All ELO reward cards have been changed, meaning that the old ELO cards are gone for the time being. The blood badge reward cards have been unchanged.

A new proc has been introduced called „Blackout“: It can block your opponent abilities for one turn, with „flying“ being the exception.

A new evolution card has been introduced, the „Lycan darkmaster“.
Next will be the implementation of the guild system and the release of the 6th region, the „infernal planes“!

See you until then!

Topic: Chronicles of Blood / [Dev] Blood Moon Arising 5 has begun

Children of the night,

It is the time of year when you can return to the Fields of the Dead and to the House of the Seven Sins.

At the Western and Eastern field you can find Spider Egss which summon a new epic boss in the Eastern field. This boss has of course new drops, one that can be used for body modifications.

Yes, body modifactions! Here an explanation of what they do:

Body modifications come in 3 main types external, head and internal. Players should note that tokens are required, and these are obtained by doing legacy quests which can be found in various game regions (with the exception of the frozen breath token and pvp + some are pvb loot). Legacy quests can be done even with an active PvE quest. Once the token is aquired the body shaper at Club Noir will then craft the modification. Pvpers should check the battle master for starting with pvp body modifications. Donors should take note that „Seal of the archon“ is required to unlock internal body modifications. Also there are „Joker tokens“ which can be used as any token required for crafting a body mod.
Once modifications are required it should be noted that there is a 2hour cool down in terms of switching between different modifications of the same area, and a cost of 75 sapphires
More modifications to come in the future

During the event players will receive double Victory Points, and donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. Also check out the new Shadow Phoenix and Black Widow servant.

Next will be the opening of R13, the „Secret laboratory“ in which the minions of Cyberlabs are conducting weird experiments and perform dark blood magic rituals.

Thank you and have fun!

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] February 17th - Cross-server PvP

Children of the night,

we were able to connect out servers so that players from the Germans erver, International server, and Kongregate can now play PvP against each other.

The players from the Germans are more advanced in PvP, but we think it is for the greater good of the game if we extend the PvP player base.

German and international players can use the PvP chat, too.

Next will be the guild feature, but without raiding at release. We want to give you time to found guilds first.

PvP season 3 is not that far away, this time we may substitute all ELO cards.

Until then.

Also R13 is on the horizon.

See you soon

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] January 20th – Region 5 – Abandoned industrial complex

Children of the night,

we proudly prsent our 5th region, the abandoned industrial complex.

On the outskirts of the city lies the abandoned industrial complex where a dangerous happened a few years ago in one of Cyberlab inc’s laboratories where dangerous experiments with toxic substances had been conducted. This incident has been covered up mostly, however the radioactive radiation had an impact on the animals in the area and the humans who were still working at the complex. But that is not enough: The poisonous mists have opened a rift to the plane of the plague demons which has been breached already.

At the complex you will find 6 new quests and one epic quest with a rather high difficulty. Of course you will get new reward and loot cards.

Three new abilites have been added:
Cloning
Devastate
Viral mutation (Doesn’t effect chain attack, summoning and similar abilites, and abilites that are resolved on your opponent’s turn)

There is a new booster called „Toxicity“ and a new starter deck with an exclusive lord, and 4 new premium cards. Cards from „Oldtown“ are now available at the single card shop. Furthermore all players will receive 30 blood rubies!

Card changes:
„Skeleton champion“ and „The King’s blade“ now summon a „Brittle skeleton“ which now has 2 health and costs 1 bloodlust. „Pelt colelctor“ is now a real threat to lycans.
The following evolution cards have been buffed:
Bone bulwark, Godfather, Gargantuan leeches, Sewer tentacles, Voltaic alligator, Giant boar, Psycho clown, Master necromancer, Thrre-bladed machete. Sniper rifle „Sudden death“ gained „Lifebane 1“ to make it different from Sniper rifle „Interception“. The evolution costs of 2Frost specter“ and „Waste specter“ have been reduced. Furthermore „Tainted water spirit“ and „Crypt wight“ have slightly been buffed.

Next we will work on a raiding and guild system and cross-server PvP.

See you then.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] January 16th – Mounts and Friendly PvP

There is a bug with Stable Master. He crashes the game if you already have a moint equipped. Working on it.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] January 16th – Mounts and Friendly PvP

Children of the night,

a new update has been deployed.

Card changes
Let’s begin with the bad news: „Vicious witch“ now has one less health point and „Escaped lunatic“ one less rage. They were outclassing almost all other 2 BL drops in the game since they have strong abilities and a weapon slot. It is hard to design new cards with these two being so strong. Also „Genesis pillar“ now only has „Heal all 1“, which can still be increased by its „Ancient blood“ proc. „Stonebreaker“ only has +1 damage now.

Mounts
Unfortunately mounts are not very popular with the players. We like them and want you to use them, so here are buffs for all mounts (well, except for Black Horse): All mounts now have a „leaving play“ effect and some have been buffed slightly. A litte hint: When you play a second mount, the one equipped leaves play. :)
There is a new proc called „Saddle up“ which can find on a the Blood Badge card, the „Stable master“.

Friendly PvP
A feature that has been requested by the community many times and we have delivered!
You can now play against your friends or simply test decks against real players. Of course, these matches don’t give ewards!
Go to the PvP page and then click on the new tab „Duel players“. Now you are in the lobby. On the left you see all players that you can challenge, and on the right you see who has challenged you. You can also set who goes first.

Next is the release of R5 on the 20th, and then we will work on the most-hated ability, take a guess. :)

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] January 14th – PvP season 2 begins, and R5 announcement

Children of the night,

today the second season of PvP begins. You can read all details in the thread from January 7th.

The only surprise for you is that the Firestorm Phoenix is still around at 2700 ELO.

Our 5th region, the „Abandoned Industrial Complex“, will be released on January 20th.

Not only that, it will also be the release of the new frienlx PvP system in which you can fight your friends just for fun.

We have added two new evolution cards, the „S.W.A.T. team member“ and „Dr Helga Steinhausen“. „Frenzied werewolf“ has received a little buff.

Next will be making mounts more appealing, and then cross-server PvP and introducing guild and raids.

See you then!

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] December 7th - PvP Season II announced

Children of the night,

the second season of PvP will start on January 14th, around 1pm GMT+1.

The ELO rating of all players will be set to 1200.

„Steel coffin“ will be moved to the blood badge section, and all ELO cards from „Black warg“ upwards will be substituted by new cards. This doesn’t mean that they are gone forever, just for this season.

Blood badges and blood badges cards are unaffected by the new season. As usual, we may add new cards as we see fit. Speaking f new blood badge card, check out the „Flea circus“. This is the toned-down version, but we like the idea behind the card so we had to release it. :)

The Christmas event has ended today, we hope you lked that challenge that Arthur posed.

As you can see four new premium cards have been released.

Now to the last nerf in the forseeable future:

„Signet of the archon“ is too strong, especially with multiple copies on the board. Besides a „rat deck“ there is no reason not to include it in any deck. Initially we wanted to make its „incite“ a chance, but we know that many of you have bought that card, so we came to another solution: It has „blood toll 1“ now and only 1 structure point. Still playable, but multiple copies will punish you.
However, there is a new evolution card available, the „Seal of the archon“, this is how the signet should have been from the start. We know that this change will not be popular with a lot of players, but it is better for the game in the long run.

We have returned to the office today and a lot of things to do that have accumulated over Christmas.

We are working on friendly PvP, cross-server PvP, making mounts more attractive, and of course the release of the new region.

See you then!

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] January 2nd: Two new lords and two card changes

New players have criticzed that it is difficult to get new lord e.g. for a second deck. So we added one in level rewards and the other for blood badges.

Illusionary dragon now costs 4 BL and only has a chance to evade. With the new upcoming dragon support cards it would have been too strong.

Dominated werewolf is now 1/4 and lost his weapon slot. His purpose is to accelerate werewolf decks and not be a super tank with offensive capabilities.
