MaxPenguinqwert Bids Farewell
Posted by Max on May 18, 2015, 10:43 am NST
Over the past 2 years, iDB has worked hard to keep the battledome community active. We did this by hosting 2 player battle events. Penguinqwert was at the forefront of the operation, coordination, organizing, and making sure that everything went smoothly. Without him, iDB would not have been able to host these events as successfully as he did. We owe him a debt of gratitude for bringing the community together, even when the battledome felt like it had nothing to offer.

After 2 amazing years, 10 events, it is time for Penguinqwert to Bid Farewell. iDB would like to wish Penguin all the best with his future endeavours and thank him for all the tremendous work he has done here. He will be sorely missed by all of us.

The unequip glitch which has been plaguing the battledome for the past couple of weeks has finally been fixed! This means that we will resume testing weapons and other battledome features.

Part of the Lag Compensation Package includes a stat increaser among other items. Fittingly enough, the stat increaser gives +1 movement points when used on a pet. Maybe faster pets will help make the website faster?
MaxL97 Informal Scrimmage - Testing New Rules
Posted by Max on January 26, 2015, 3:49 am NST
UPDATE 2: Due to the persisting lag and equipment glitch, the L97 test scrimmage and rules ballot have been postponed indefinitely.

UPDATE: Due to the current glitch preventing battle equipment from being removed, the schedule has been pushed back one week. Dates below are modified.

If you have been following L97's official metagame discussion for 2015 on the Jellyneo Forums, you may already be aware that we have a test scrimmage scheduled for February! In about a month we plan to have an official poll for proposed rule changes to L97, but until then we will be hosting an informal scrimmage on the Battledome Chat! The scrimmage will take place during three weeks in February, and we will use a different set of proposed rules each week (see below).

We greatly appreciate all battlers willing to battle with us over the next few weeks. Battlers new and old alike are highly encouraged to battle and chat about the proposals. It is important that we make an effort to try out some new weapons so that we can make more educated decisions when the ballot comes out. As the latter half of the month approaches, we will provide more information on the voting procedure.

To further encourage participation, we will have participation medals for your L97 trophy collection! Gold, silver, and bronze medals will be granted based on the number of battles fought.

IMPORTANT: All existing L97 rules are in place during the scrimmage except for conflicts with the proposed rules.

If a week's proposed rules conflict with an existing rule, the proposed rules overrule the existing rules.

WEEK 1: February 6th - February 12th
  1. Glowing Cauldron may not be used.
  2. Thyoras Tear may not be used.
  3. Once per battle items may not exceed 18.0 offensive icons. Multiple use items still may not exceed 12.0 offensive icons.

WEEK 2: February 13th - February 19th
  1. The ability Shhhhhhhh! may be used. No other Level 50 Tier abilities may be used.
  2. Glowing Cauldron may only be used five times in set and no more than three times in a single battle. This rule applies to all Glowing Cauldrons. Dual Glowing Cauldrons counts as two uses.
  3. Glowing Cauldron and Cursed Elixir may not be used on the same turn. Note that Glowing Cauldron and Cursed Elixir can still be used in the same battle.
  4. Multiple use items with variable icon quantity are limited to 13.0 offensive icons. Multiple use items with constant icon quantity are limited to 12.0 offensive icons.
  5. Jade Elixir and Thick Smoke Bomb may be used. Other single use items still cannot be used.
  6. Battlers may only use a Full Blocker (Thyoras Tear, Thick Smoke Bomb, etc.) once per set.
  7. Once per battle items may not exceed 16.0 offensive icons. Multiple use items still may not exceed 12.0 offensive icons.

  1. The ability Shhhhhhhh! may be used. No other Level 50 Tier abilities may be used.
  2. Multiple use items with variable icon quantity are limited to 13.0 offensive icons. Multiple use items with constant icon quantity are limited to 12.0 offensive icons.
  3. Dual duty items may not exceed 16.0 total icons.
  4. Full Block dual duty items may be used. However, the Full Block component of an item is treated as 10.0 icons towards the 16.0 total icon limit.
  5. Once per battle AND single use items may not exceed 16.0 offensive icons. Multiple use items still may not exceed 12.0 offensive icons. No restrictions apply to the defensive component of once per battle and single use items. (Water Muffin, Thick Smoke Bomb, Slippery Floor Potion, etc. are all permitted by this rule.)
MaxNew HT Weapon: Smelly Cheese Bomb
Posted by Max on January 20, 2015, 10:12 am NST
A new weapon has appeared in the Hidden Tower! The art style seems to be similar to other recent weapons, harking back to the early days of Neopets. The Smelly Cheese Bomb costs 6,600,000 NP in the Hidden Tower. We will be testing the bomb as soon as possible. Look for an update soon.
