Build 1239 - Crash Hotfix

This build only contains a hotfix for a crash bug in 1236 related to the unicode changes - servers should be more stable and people should be able to enjoy more uninterrupted play.

Have Fun!

Build 1236 - Fixes and Archer Tweaks

A quick one, so only a few changes this time around.
First up:
We're hearing you on the archer shotgun changes
This has been a strongly dividing issue - some like it, some hate it, there are certainly more archers and more arrows flying.
To counteract this we've made the outer arrows of overcharged shots disintegrate after a moderate distance; you can still use them for support and CQC, but cant rain them in big arcs.
If this isn't enough to stabilise the opinions around it and result in a good archer meta we'll take a vote on where to go next. So far we're seeing more archers, which we take as an indication that the class is currently more fun for the average joe - we've just got to find a balance that appeases the higher tier players and those maining other classes.
Fix and Tweak Summary

  • Potential Fix for invisible mines
    This one has been clamoured about for a while - we thought this was fixed a few builds ago but
  • Fixed Builders getting half materials
    This was a hard to catch typo bug that slipped in halfway through the last round of changes; was good that it was caught early after the release though and has been fixed now.
  • Fixed some spike network sync issues
    at the cost of a little latency in the spikes reaction
  • Removed archer ignoring fixed camera setting
    We decided to just let players choose properly; some people have been complaining about this both ways so we removed the conflicting setting.
  • Clantag re-added to character name in scoreboard
    Adding a new column would take too long, so the clantag was just added to the name column again.
  • Clantag colour is same as name colour on mouse hover
  • Removed "invalid utf8 spam" for people with invalid names
    should just cleanly replace bad characters now.
  • Siege Engine Conversion Tweaks
    Siege engines can't be converted in 0 seconds flat any more, and in fact cannot be sat into before conversion; This should make defending a forward ballista a little simpler and mean a little less "hot potato" seat swapping.
We'll see how it goes over the weekend, thanks for bearing with us with some of these more experimental changes!
Have Fun!

“No other game allows you to build a castle, actively fight off invaders, and then jump onto a catapult to be flung over the walls of your rival’s castle to claim its inner sanctum as your own.”

King arthurs gold is one of the most satisfying games i have ever played.
Nothing in this entire world beats the feeling of watching the frigtened, scattered and wounded faces of your enemies get clobbered in with a giant sword, or watching as the improvised wooden huts that your enemies used as a "base" burn quickly to the ground.
And the most amazing part is when you finally, after nearly an hour of constant struggle, getting the last flag and charging home with your team on your back.

and dont even get me STARTED on the swordplay.
The swordplay feels smooth as butter and is rather responsive and feels GOOD.
(did you get that? it feels GOOD. like, nutella sandwich good. yea, its that great.)

But i feel as if the archer class is a little weird to play, especially if you are planning to grapple on to a wall and snipe. Its still good, but it doesnt hold a CANDLE to the knight master race.

The builder is basically a fleshed out version of the TF2 Engineer. you can set up ballistas and catapults, you can make tunnels (teleporters) for your team to use, you can build workshops for your team to buy usefull things like kegs (big bombs), bombs (weaker bombs), mines (self explanitory), as well as water based bombs and arrows (stun bombs).

8.5/10 es rly gud

King Arthur's Gold. Where do we begin?

Let's say you just start in the game. You have no tutorials, you are just thrown into a random game. What do you do? You begin building a fort. You see someone else doing an entirely different thing. Are you doing it wrong? One guy is putting trap blocks over a hole, another is digging a large tunnel with water, another is creating rooms packed with traps and class shops. Who is right and who is wrong?

All of you are right! This game encourages creativity. Using what's around you and turning it against your enemies. A shark in a pit killing soldiers? Turn it into a trap. Enemies built a wall? Launch yourself in a catapult. It is all these different ways to play that make every game so fun.

Assume they are putting heavy siege upon your walls. Off the top of my head, you can:
- Build tunnels for a constant stream of defense.
- Fill a boat with explosives and ram it into them.
- Get a boat full of builders to destroy the small base they built.
- Build walls behind the wall that is under siege
- Dozens of more ways, for you to discover!
To counter these:
- Have builders climb up using ladders to destroy the tunnel.
- Sacrifice yourself by turning the boat back into their wall, toppling it over into their base.
- Knights to stab the builders.
- Put your catapult on a boat for a constant push on each wall.

TL:DR, King Arthurs gold is a fun game that encourages creativity to defeat your enemies.
9/10

This is absolutely brilliant! It's like a turbocharged multiplayer Lemmings. The insanity you get on a 20-player server is hilarious. It really is as crazy as the videos above suggest, but it's better than it looks.

Definitely my multiplayer game of the year 2013!
