The only requirement we have is that you need to have a card or sign of BtC in your original cadre, not add it with Photoshop, so we will be sure that you made this selfie specially for us. No matter what background you will use, or photoshop help in other things :) It’s not the main point, so you can clue a dinosaur near you:)

I am sorry that we are very negative with you frequently Bytex but everyone makes mistakes. The problem we have is not that you make mistakes — actually most of the game is great, and you do a great job. The problem is when you make a mistake you act like 1) you have not made a mistake, arguing with us about it and more importantly 2) you never try to make us feel better or offer us some kind of compensation.

The last era of CW was very, very, very bad for the life of Berserk on Kongregate. You created a contest where we were treated unfairly, then you gave our opponents an unfair advantage (the new card which is RIDICULOUSLY strong) and you never made any effort to correct the problem. You still refuse to admit you made a mistake. You don’t even say “sorry” to us.

I have told you for 3 years and I will tell you again:

LIMITED EDITION CARDS ARE STUPID. THEY ARE BAD FOR THE GAME.

Anyway that is your main problem here. When you create a card that is badly designed (too strong), you can’t even fix the problem if you make it limited-edition. If you just allowed us to get CW cards this would not be a problem in the first place since everyone could get a copy and balance the system.

Thanks for responding to our concerns this time anyway. Good luck fixing the metagame. Introducing new strong cards is a risky way of doing so …

Okay, Sir Valimont, thank you for your response.
We discussed a new card with VK players and most of them think it’s not too strong as it might seem at the first sight. Moreover, this card can be dangerous for you only if you meet other clans in Platinum or Global era. We think it won’t happen soon because of lots of problems that happened, not only technical, but mostly psychological. Still we have some issues that we simply cannot solve the way everybody likes, and also you can say that again we started to deny our fault and so on. But the thing is, we don’t deny anything. Yes, last era we had some connection troubles, yes, Russian clans seem way too strong and organised, and they create alliances that it difficult to win. We asked many Kong players to express their point of view about the era, we understood main problems that caused results like this. Most of them can be solved, but they are not about technical issues.

1. Every win gives a raffle number for the lottery. At the end of the era 3 numbers are chosen randomly and the owning players get a prize.

2. Every player who gets at least 1 win gets a raffle number for the lottery. Only 1 per player. Prizes at end.

3. All ounces spent on rebuys go into a jackpot. One player randomly wins the jackpot at the end of the era.

4. All imperials spent on repairs go into a jackpot. One player randomly wins the jackpot at the end of the era.

5. At the end of the era, players who win a CW card are allowed to choose the new one, or 1 copy of any of the old ones (repeating system).

This took me less than 2 minutes to write and all of the ideas are better than this new stupid idea, which also does not fix any of the new problems introduced by the terrible CW global era from last time, the very badly designed CW reward card unfairly given only to our opponents, or the stupid attempts to reduce the problem by creating more bad mechanics with the new miniset (instead of just nerfing the CW card as it should be).

Thank you for your suggestions, we’ll surely discuss it with our team.

Rewarding player with most wins in clan war is not a good idea. Some clans has a win limit so that players can share rewards a little more equaly. That means, any player of these clans won’t have a chance at this (it also means, more or less, that the most selfish player will get rewarded even more :p).

Well, first of all, we didn’t make up the rule about wins limit, so that is why we will try this new kind of reward at least once. Let’s give it a try and see how it goes. It doesn’t mean we will do it all the time. It’s a good way to change your traditional way of fighting and try something new.

We think that this card is balanced enough, so we are not going to nerf it.

Dawn broke, and the first sunbeams lightened the field of a coming battle. A small group of mages was looking for this battle with heart aflutter: it was a matter of their mastership whether they were able to stay out against invincible army of a foe.

Then the first opponent squads came out of a hill, the high class magic began to appear. The Great Equilibrium spell destroyed enemies, made some of them run away and gave extra powers to mages. In moments opponents lost their advantages, and only a small part of the great army was alive. It was easy to fight them.

Meet the new “Equilibrium of Powers” mini-set! It contains 12 cards of creatures with unique abilities which are able to create most powerful squads and try new strategic turns. The mini-set is available in the game shop at the price of 60 ounces. One time you can buy it for imperials also.

Test new warrior in a battle, and you won’t be disappointed!

Until 9:00 GMT+0 July 16 you can purchase the “Forbidden Power” mini-set 20% cheaper. Also there is 20% discount on Pre-Built squads and 50% discount on the refresh of a shop assortment. The discounts are in ounces.

They say something evil is trying to reach the lands of Laar… Akkenian warriors are forced to protect themselves from hordes of demons day by day, and Toa-Dhan mages predict awful catastrophes. The forests of elves are attacked by monsters unseen before. Laar is full of heroes but nobody is strong enough to destroy the enemy that hides among them. Who will be the one who saves Laar from this usurper?

The one whose heart belongs to Soultrad will never forget the native land. Dertakh was young when he left Laar for wanderings, but he cannot leave it in trouble! Incredible abilities of the old vampire are able to unite different creatures together, and he sends his army of the strongest warriors to help Laar.

Rejoice, ungars! You can be the first to estimate the power of the new squad, and face off the unknown menace. Berserk: Universe game released a new set that contains 141 cards. All cards are available in “Mystery of Dertakh” boosters that cost 50 ounces. The victory will be ours!

So I haven’t bothered to complain about this eras happenings cause it has no real effect on our rankings whatsoever.

But still, Bytex next time do better, please. (With less clans)

Okay, thank you for your words, we really appreciate your objective answer. We will do our best next time.
