Will there be an expanded version of the current ProtoCoin shop once the HTML version of the game is released? Until it is expanded, I fear PCs are not going to bring in much for additional revenue to the game.


support this, something that would make people want protocoins beyond simply for purchasing premium features. It would make it easier to get people to play tourneys with them as a reward. As well as ofc encouraiging ppl to spend money on the game.

Okay I'd like to ask some questions about AW original idea (2008 pls)


1. Did you guys had the idea and develop it alone? Or there was anyone in the back supporting / giving ideas / giving monetary support or you guys payed someone for help you?
It was always just the two of us, from the original idea to the actual implementation.

2. Did you guys had any problem with the servers and hosting back at that time?
We didn't really think about scalability back then. Our very first server was a very simple & cheap shared web hosting. It obviously required an upgrade really quickly.

3. WHY SILVERLIGHT? I know by the faq about why no above or html back them, but did you guys ever consider java or C++ or visual studio or Codeblocks? (I probably don't know much about programming, I am still studying...).
Silverlight was just about the only suitable web platform back then. I still think it's great, but the world had since moved on from proprietary to more open stuff (HTML). Which, in retrospective, was inevitable, but still kind of sad. HTML had gone a long way since we've started our game, but it's still a horrible mess in my opinion.

Also, did you guys saw Silverlight somewhere or someone told you guys to try Silverlight or "How" did you guys meet Silverlight? I don't know if I made the question right...
Can't remember it now. I was doing a research on the best suitable platform for our game and briefly considered Flash and even Java, but settled on Silverlight in the end, as it is just superior.

To Amok: Were you fan of any game back at that time?
Turn-based strategy games like Heroes of Might & Magic, Civilization, Risk. Certainly a lot of the inspiration comes from them.

I'm sure you have a wide variety of users that have good knowledge of web development, including myself that would give you guys a hand in building certain parts of the game in HTML5, without payment.

For small bits we would probably spend more time preparing the ground and explaining things, than if we just coded them ourselves. I don't think there are any truly separate modules in atWar, everything is very inter-connected.

I hear Finland's system of education is pretty good! The best one in the world(I don't remember, probably 2 years ago). Is Estonia system any good? What do you guys thinks about it?

Yes, Finnish education is awesome, though it's been showing some cracks lately. I have no idea about how good/bad Estonian education is. My own experience is now 17 years out of date. Back then the schools were much closer to the Russian system of education, which they inherited from Soviet Union.

It doesn't have to be anything game changing. Just try adding in simple things that players have suggested, for example: hats and the ability to save old usernames. Also, if you want further suggestions, you could:

-Allow players to only play with certain colors if they unlock the color with a small protocoin purchase (eg: black, rainbow, stripes, polka-dot)
-Allow the selection of a custom rank icon to go on your shield instead of the default(will reset back to default once you rank up)
-Allow non-premium members to rent a general using PC for one week, two weeks, or a month
-Allow the ability to pause any quick game the player is currently playing in for 2 minutes once per day(a pause feature was proposed by players in another thread, but it could be abuse-able, but a 2 minute feature once a day that requires a PC use to use may be a good compromise)
-Allow players the ability to buy different text colors to be used in game chat(I propose limiting the colors to a few non-orange shades and keeping it to game chat because it could cause confusion elsewhere)

Anyways, these are just a few examples that I came up with off the top of my head, and I am sure you could come up with more if you pulled the rest of the community together to help brainstorm new ideas in another thread.

Rank 14 looks amazing. I highly doubt anybody will like the rank 15 though as just about everybody finds rank 10 ugly.

2. If you had unlimited resources (time & money) what kind of game would you create?

....

2. Something that educates people on a broad variety of subjects (history, politics, economy, society) while still being wildly entertaining and not feeling too dry. A game where the goal is to create a perfectly functioning society while navigating around all the usual pitfalls of human nature and using any tools available (including the unproven ones like cryptocurrencies, universal basic income and other concepts). For all of it to work and not be too simplistic, a mindboggling amount of factors need to be taken into account and possible outcomes realistically calculated. It would be fun to have a multiplayer version as well, each player representing one country, each trying out their own ways, working together or sometimes undermining each others' efforts, just like in the real world.

A question for either in regards turnblocking.

Say if my enemy had 20 units. As a first move i send a 1 unit tb. Then i complete another bunch of moves and send 6 units at the 20 stack, and then i add another 3 units from elsewhere making 10 overall. Whats my tb %?

is the % chance from the first tb attempt the only one thats calculated? (what i believe happens)

do the tb % sum up?

or are all 10 units calculated as a first priority move?

I don't remember all the specifics of this mechanic, and mostly it was Amok's responsibility. However, what I think happens is that movements by all players are resolved in the same order they were made. So, there's a sort of a queue of movements - they are resolved randomly, but always in the same order. Let's say we have 10 players - so, the first roll is between their 10 first movements. One is selected randomly and executed. Now we 9 first movements and one second movement - again, one is taken randomly. If a particular player is particularly lucky, he might have 2 or 3 of his movements executed, while other players are still at their first movement.

So that's how it works. There's no %, just order and random rolls.

We're seriously moving away from "Ask anything" into the "Suggest anything" territory, but I'm going to reply to these two. Preset alliances is a useful thing, so we'll try to provide this option for map-makers. Whenever we manage to find time for it - for such a seemingly simple thing, it can be surprisingly complicated and time-consuming. Built-in tournaments would be awesome to have, but it's a massive effort, especially if we want them to be flexible enough to please everyone. For now they'll just have to be community-organized, I'm afraid.

Alright guys, you heard him! Get some ideas up that will provide extra revenue for the game!


I've got one: Stop wasting months on the completely unnecessary HTML5 version and implement a tournament system and/or rated team games.
I can't follow your line of reasoning Ivan/Amok: The whole thing with HTML5 is to get more players right? Maybe instead of focusing on something that does absolutely nothing for the players who were loyal to your game for years, you could just follow the suggestion (from 2011 btw.: that makes 3,5 years, just saying) and strengthen the competitive part of the game.
I seriously considered you two guy cool in the past, but I don't get whats wrong with you, really. You're slowly destroying your game and it makes absolutely no sense.
And don't tell me this 'hurr player number still growing' shit again, because this says absolutely nothing about the loyalty of this would-be-rank2s.

On the other hand: If this would take even more time than the HTML5 version then keep doing what you're doing. Maybe in 2017 I will check in again for the new forum design or some other useless stuff.
Not even hating I just don't understand your way of setting priorities.

I have a GREAT idea for a new world map/scenario, but I need to be able to make the max parameters for attack, defend, range....etc. a bit higher than what's allowed on a few units to make it work. Is there a way to remove the max parameters for attack, defend, range....etc. on ALL units on a standard world map?

I've got one: Stop wasting months on the completely unnecessary HTML5 version and implement a tournament system and/or rated team games.

Here are the three crucial reasons why we're doing an HTML5 version, even though we're reasonably happy with the Silverlight one:
1. Silverlight is dying. Microsoft has abandoned it and dropped all support for it. We don't want atWar to die with it.
2. Installing SL is an additional step many are not willing or are not able to make. SL doesn't run on Linux and is buggy on Mac. Many users are experiencing weird crashes and empty black screen.
3. We need to bring the game to phones and tablets, which are increasingly more popular for gaming. This is not possible with SL.

Having a built-in tournament system is cool, but can hardly compare in terms of urgency.

I am sorry if someone already asked this but what is the expected release date for HTML5? If you don't have one, can you give a rough estimate at all?


The wise Greeks have a saying, it goes like "Ever since the apology was created, the "philotimo" got lost".Offcourse a direct translation for the word "philotimo" doesnt exist in english, because well, Greek language has over 5 million words and English no more than 200 thousand, but in your situation it can translate to "Just because you say you are sorry, doesnt mean you get to ask stupid questions.

Its already been answered blondie, look it up.

I see, thanks for clarifying.
Obviously I can only argue from my perspective as a competitive player and I still see huge potential in this game, I always did so, it's just that the introduction of scenarios and now the ongoing development of the HMTL5 version seem to take such a huge amount of time that could be equally well spent on implementing more competitive aspects into the game.
Your reasoning seems sound though, and since you implemented ELO for duels and clan-wars, which was always one of my goals, I must admit I'm satisfied at where things are heading, just the pace is driving me mad. (No offense, I know you're doing the best you can.)
So instead of harassing you guys I might as well go into hibernation again. Hopefully we will see rated team-games and improved turn-blocks in the future, this will be the point where I will come back, since of course this game in itself is still totally awesome.

Cheers, Cow.
