      Almost GG, if the guy actually started the game. I know it would have been an excellent G. :) Somewhere in the stars, in another universe somewhere, that game actually started.

  • I think we're good on the reskinning of this place to celebrate the anniversary. If I was able to add actual banners above each page, I would've done so much more, but this is good enough, I guess.

    My question now is, should we keep this theme up for the day or a whole week? Feedback on this would be appreciated.

  • So @Alpha and I discovered that BB Zero's multiplayer still works. You can't get currency or anything, but the servers are still up and you can get in matches if anyone is actually playing.

    I'm still in shock, I thought SkyVu shut the servers down.

      To address your concern, that account is actually my original one from way back in 2010, around the time this forum opened. At some point in December 2011, I bailed, but later I came back under a new account, this one, in 2013. So, technically, this is my alt.

      The reason I wasn't banned before... I honestly don't know, but my guess is that for whatever reason, the admins at the time accepted my new account as a fresh start. Currently, alts that are under direct approval from the moderators are allowed here, it's only unapproved alts we go after. Seeing as I'm now a mod myself, well... yeah, I'm not going anywhere.

      Should be obvious at this point; the game became boring for me and SkyVu is doing absolutely nothing with it. If they won't support their own game, I won't support it either after a certain amount of time.

  • There is an in-game friend list and fully-functioning Clan system in Let it Goat 2, but not in a Battle Bears game.

    What the hell, man.

      Clan update we all assumed was bbo but was actually referring to let it goat
    • InstableGriff
      InstableGriff
      Seeing how the Clan system and leaderboards work only makes me more upset, they work nearly flawlessly and clearly show what once could've been. These are exactly the kind of things BBO needed to become a thriving game, but they crammed them into a game that'll barely last a week or two. I'm imagining how much better things would be if this system was in BBO or even BBG if they were actually able to get it to work back then.

      I seriously don't know if this act will ever be redeemed in my eyes, it feels like such a huge nail to the coffin that it could be the last.
  • If the Let it Goat 2 Clan promotion thing added to the permanent message on the top of the page seems unnecessary and bothers some of you, I'm sorry to say there was no other way to get it to work, as adding new page messages doesn't work anymore for some reason. I tried desperately to make it a new message that people could dismiss, but Vanilla's new moderation system apparently doesn't want to cooperate.

    I'm starting to get sick of all of this, but there's just nothing I can do about it.

  • Adixion
    Oh, hey there
    May 14
  • I honestly would love it at this point if they just included some maps from one game into the other, basically BBG maps in BBO and BBO maps in BBG. I'd be real interested in seeing how a map from one game would work with the other's mechanics.

    Yes, it would be recycling assets, but honestly, that's probably as close as we'll ever get to having actual new maps in any game.
    May 3
    • InstableGriff
      InstableGriff
      They tried doing this before; we were informed that the Marecraft from BBG was going to be a bonus map in BBU, but for a reason I forgot (I'm assuming the placement of the Jump Pads), they decided to scrap it. That's why there's a remix of the Marecraft theme present in BBO's Twilight Forest.

      If the Marecraft actually made it into the game, it would've paved the way for more classic BBG maps being brought into the world of BBU and possibly the other way around with BBU maps being added to BBG. I really wish it happened.

      That's alright, I was in the mood to use poison weapons so I threw in Ammo +3 Toxic Rifle to see if it would work. It's been doing good so far!
    • Fluttershyisbestpony
      Fluttershyisbestpony
      Got it to work a little better with Dmg and Speed, but the Minigun actually helped it to have some punch. It's a weapon with great potential, it's a real shame it's so underwhelming, but it's still fun regardless! Always thought it would be fun to have a poison/DoT team, or even more interesting, to have an entire team use radiation weapons. :D

      Nox is the best I've found for BBG so far. Joystick controls are still clunky, but aim's decent and it doesn't often completely bug out midmatch, so I can still do decently with certain classes.

  • Thinking about this place and the fate of the franchise again. Every time, it's depressing to wonder about what could've been, and each visit to the Forum sends an unpleasant feeling soaring across my body due to how disturbingly empty it is now. The fact that the memories I've had with these games and their community will never be even remotely replicated again in this condition just hurts.

    SkyVu, please sell your IP.

      and actually answer it not just say "overreaction" because you guys do it all the time so it makes sense for someone with morals to defend someone else when they keep getting random crap sent their way for no good reason. it's sad that i feel like i have to even add that part on because i know that would be your reply if i didn't, and if not yours it would be someone else's.

      I don't know if it's just me showing up at the wrong times, but it seems that almost all of the once-dedicated BBO players are no longer there, it's now just me and a bunch of newer players who'll eventually leave. I didn't think a game would become just as much of a ghost town as this place is so soon.

      BBG is the only game left that has old players showing up, but even then (for me at least), it's somewhat rare.

      Bbo is hard to stick at as there is not that much to do, once a player is maximum level, has all the weapons good augs a few skins and armour there isn't much else to do. BBG has many more weapons and I don't think anyone who hasn't hacked or paid has them all (I may be wrong) so people can stick at it because there is always a new weapon to try.

  • Just letting you guys know right now before it's too late: there's a 99% chance that we won't do anything for April Fools this year.

    Last year we transformed the Forum in honor of a particular "fan" comic, but in today's reality, this place is too abandoned for us to even consider pulling another stunt, and honestly, that's generally our current mindset whenever we think about doing anything significant. Until we see SkyVu begin to substantially support us and their franchise, there's no reason for us to try and push this Forum beyond its current, admittedly comfortable state.

    Sorry to bum out the few of you out there who may have expected a new April Fools event. Believe me, last year's event was tons of fun, but that was during an era where SkyVu still actually somewhat cared.
