I'm sorry for not delivering the important BB news update last year. After years filled with ups and downs across many BB games, I'm talking with many of you as I carefully refine my plans. Thank you for your patience and continued support. I'm playing BBG and BBO more often, so I hope to see all of you on the battlefields in 2017.

      Yes!! I've only played with SkyVu staff twice all these years, this will be a blast. :)

      I think the primary thing that made SkyVu a fun company years ago was how much interaction the fans had with the staff. Even if the games weren't AAA mega-budget blockbusters, they always felt quirky, indie, and approachable, where every fan felt like a part of their growth. The old blogs were amazing and hilarious, for instance, and very insightful into the development process. Most of us hardcore fans eat up any and all staff interaction, so we very much appreciate anything that gets the hype train rolling.

      ^^ That's very true. The interaction between the fans and the company has always been something that sets SkyVu apart from other companies in my eyes.

    When you guys are done with the VR project, can you consider putting a level cap on Battle Bears Gold. The hack accounts always have outrageous levels like 781,567,890 so on. It's really annoying when I'm play an automatch and the game ends once it starts because these hack accounts. Sometimes (it's rare) when I play a game with a level 700+ and the game doesn't end but still these hack accounts have to go. There's just been a lot of these hack accounts I've been seeing lately. The highest level I've seen that's not a hack account would be in the 220-230s, personality I would put the level cap 100.

      you can tell if it's a pub acc or not just by seeing their ID numbers and their ranks, not every high level acc is hacker or pub acc. I'm currently at level 283, and its ridiculous that you wish they put a cap below 100, simply delete those pub accounts will do.
    • LilyB
      LilyB
      Yeah you can tell be the rank but like I said high levels like a 781 should be ban automatically. Mostly all of them if not all of them have a high level that nobody would be able to reach. Putting a level cap on BBG it should be easier for pub accounts to be ban. They should have some type of program to detect if an account passes the level cap, banning it automatically.

    I just want to say thank you for enabling BBG to be played vertically. Its fresh to be able to play like this.
    lzul6hei10oi.png

    Although one problem. Changing from vertically to horizontally causes a few problems, and can't change back vertically.

    Other than that great addition to the game.

    Hi Ben,


    I don't want to rush you or anything, I understand the CEO is a busy job and all, but the weekend has passed and most of the community is wondering about what's going on with all of this Places VR stuff. Are we going to get that explanation you were talking about soon?

      Maybe he is busy, let's wait.
    • Wilpower784
      Wilpower784
      Maybe so, but there's a lot of concern and mistrust with SkyVu and the community or so it seems. At this point, we really can't afford to have to wait out things like this after they gave their word.

    The nerfs to Riggs in BBG were great, especially replacing the health bonus on provolowned for a special speed stat as I love to jump everywhere. Now I can put health +2 and speed +2 without shame. Thank you!

  • Ultimate_Bear
    Ben, oh Benny. I like you, and Skyvu, and these forums, but we need to talk. The forums are dying, and all because we feel that you guys lost hope. What happen to the activity you were involved in? What happened to the new and features you previewed to us? What happened to the energy you gave us by interacting with us? We want the good old days back, and to do that you need to be more involved with us, and don't think of it as a business, but as a way of life. You need to be one of us, and let us know you still care about us because the way it looks, it looks as if you don't care, and thats one of the awful traits of a business. You said there is something big coming? Great, what is it? Just give us a little sneak peek and be around us a lot more. In the forums, and in BBO. If you can do that, the games, and the forums will thrive once more, with new and old players coming. Please do this for ys. Don't let your dream die.

    Make Battle Bears Great again!

      You know telling him to give us information isn't really going to get information.


      I'm sure things will balance out eventually, SkyVu just has gotta know that we love to hear stuff from them, which I'm sure they already know

    Hey Ben,

    Do you know if this shirt will ever be on sale again?

    duxrj19ajtcp.jpeg

    It's SO COOL. I know there's another version of this shirt, but I prefer this design much more.

    It'd be awesome to see it make a return.

    Thanks,
    Wilpower

  • I'd like to give a shout out to the soft launch and TestFlight testers who helped us get BBO to this point. We learned so much since last Thanksgiving and our team really appreciates all the critical feedback. I have the wait list of TestFlighters and will add players in that list soon.

  • We're working on new anti-hacking tools for Overclock and I want to get these done before we ship the Android version. We're also working with Google Play to make sure it's an awesome launch similar to how Apple is helping us this week. All this takes time so I appreciate the patience of all of our Android players. Our studio is primarily Android users (Note4, Note5, Nexus, MotoX) so it's important to us to get Overclock to Android.

      We use Macs and PC depending on the task at hand. As for what mobile devices we carry with us, most of us carry Android. I carry both because I need to constantly test our games on both and study the market trends on both platforms. I'm also a big fan of Gear VR :)
