Posted by macosten on February 9, 2019, 10:04 am NST
The data for the Battledome Survey first mentioned in the January 27th, 2018 editorial was finally released in the most recent editorial.

Anyone else remember this beautiful banner?

The results are certainly interesting. According to the Editorial, around 10,000 users participated, and:

-68% of you have been playing for 11-19 years! Which is insanely awesome!
-50% of you play 21 plus times a week.
-A lot of you want us to focus on fixing the foresight glitch which we also really want to find a solution to.
-In terms of stances 17% of you thought they were super important while 30% were neutral.
-Featured Challengers received 19% neutral yet 26% found it super important.
-Regarding stealing and reflecting 22% thought it was important while 27.6% were neutral and 11% said no altogether.
-Most answers involving high score table & battling difficult opponents were neutral.
-A big percentage voted toward implementing some sort of hit point system as a fourth option in battling.
-73% of you REALLY want to bring back Defenders of Neopia!

The editorial also mentioned that TNT has not forgotten about the Battledome, and that fixes will come one at a time. It is unknown how long it will take before we see any fixes.

I hope to finally see the merging of our old Battledome stats!

AND the return of Inflatable Balthazar! (and to a lesser but still important extent, the Neggbreaker. )

No mention AT ALL about the Movement stat... Meanwhile 90% of my FQC quests are still Air Faeries.. Another 9% are Earth/Grey Faeries giving me movement.. Please either make movement relevant or stop wasting our real life money, please.

At least they mentioned that people want HP increase, hoping they'll find a way to get that to work without breaking 10 other things

I'm relieved to see that 73%. That pretty much guarantees that they'll be bringing it back, I would imagine. A bit surprised that Featured Challengers didn't get more love from users. Still, I hope they fix it.

-Please either make movement relevant or stop wasting our real life money, please.-

I already think FQCs break the NP/NC wall as it is, how about they just remove them altogether?

10,000 users? That's interesting

Bring back DoN

I agree they should get rid of movement if it’s not used for anything, maybe let us give the movement stat points to another stat.

Actually I still think it would be nice to have potions that increase one stat at the cost of another.

i missed this survey, what do they mean by "hit point system", isn't there already a hit point system?

1jediboy, 02/12/2019, 5:23 pm NST
^Before the beta, every battle would result in the 1-player opponent growing by one hit point.

I think the hit point system they're talking about is bringing this system back.
