First test was awesome! \o/

Thanks for helping out with testing the servers yesterday!
We had more people than we expected and it’s great to see such dedication! Feels like we’re not trying to keep the servers alive for nothing! <3

We’ve done some changes to the forum here on steam. We’ve added a community announcement forum, where you will see news about further tests, community activities et cetera. We’ve also added a test forum, where we’d like to get reports on bugs and how the servers behave while you play during the tests. And there’s now also a support forum for technical issues or problems you have with the game. Last but not least, we’ve also split up the discussion forums into general and bloodline discussion.
So make sure to swing by and make your voice heard!

Upcoming test session
Next test session will not be as long as this one, because we felt both you guys and we got pretty tired at the end.

Next test is scheduled for Friday, January 16th at 16:00 UTC to 19:00 UTC
We’d be really happy if you had a chance to show up and help out again!

All connections have been reset and since some people decided to spend more time on trying to ninja other peoples accounts rather than test, for this session we will require both email and account name to connect an account.
Please focus people, we’re testing a game here! :D

We got a lot of information on how the servers perform, especially the shop and we will do some tweaks before next test to get the best possible results.



FAQ
I lost a lot of rating in the test server! Are you going to fix it!?

Nothing on the test servers are saved and will not affect your account on live. So you lost no rating, you get none of the new items you bought with your free gold and you did not get that name change. Everything on live is just as before you started testing.



I can’t play, how do I get back on live?!

If you try and enter now, this is done automatically since we’ve removed the beta. But when it’s available and you want to play on live you need to do this:
To play on live, you need to Opt out of the beta in the beta drop down list in your Bloodline Champions properties on Steam. It should look like this:




What will happen with Titan accounts?

Titan accounts will keep all their perks after the transfer, except for the 10% Funcom Points discount on prices in the shop. This is because Funcom Points has been removed and due to technical reasons with the new shop. Titan users will however get a gold coins compensation for this. Hope that’s ok. :)

Stunlock Hosting Bloodline Champions Update

So what’s going on?

The plan is that Stunlock will take over the servers late January, and that’s when you’ll get your keys sent to your e-mail, enabling you to connect your current account. We will keep you updated. If you are unsure about which e-mail you have registered with Funcom, make sure to check the bottom of this post!

Help us out!

To get us ready to take over the servers, we need some help with some testing.

On 13th of January (BLC’s 4th birthday!) we will have our first public test of our beta servers, and we’d love some help to test things out!

You can reach the test servers via the "Betas" tab in Bloodline Champions -> Properties, in your game list.

Edit: Will be available during test sessions.






The servers will be available from 15:00 UTC to 21:00 UTC on January 13th.
If things go well.

To connect your account, click the connect button on the start up page. The connection key on the beta is your current Bloodline Champions account name (Which you log in with).



Any progress, unlocks et cetera achieved on the test servers will not carry over to the Live servers. The test servers may also be reset, or otherwise manipulated or changed at any time.

Gold or Bloodcoins you spend on the beta will not be spent from your live account. When the new servers go live, you will have to re-connect your account again with the key from Funcom.

We chose to have shorter test sessions to concentrate the amount of players, instead of having them open for a longer period of time with less activity. (At least for our initial tests.)

The prices in the shop on the beta servers do not represent the planned prices for live, they are only set for test purposes.



Updates
Here are some of the planned changes for the game when the servers are transferred:
    Teams
  • Teams Matchmaking has been removed.
    This is to ensure that the playerbase is less spread out on multiple queues
  • Teams are still used for Tournaments
  • Teams Matches statistics now includes Tournament matches win/loss tracking.

    Scenarios
  • Scenario Queues have been removed due to very long queue times. But are still available in Custom games.

    Custom Games
  • Custom Game Bloodcoin Gain increased from 25% to 90%

    Standard Matchmaking
  • Parties matchmaking balance has been modified to make it less exploitable for high rated users to play with low rated players.

    Bugfixes
  • Fixed a bug where Thorn would gain energy by using Tree Bash projectiles.

    Pricing
    Funcom points will of course be replaced and we’ll instead use Gold coins.

    Bloodlines will be divided into 3 different price groups, no prices will be increased so don’t worry about that.

    We will however remove Bloodcoin costs from cosmetic items such as bloodline and weapon skins, emotes, avatars and titles. So these items will only be available for Gold, as rewards and tournament prizes.

Some of the changes will already be done on the beta servers, some may not.

FAQ

Servers
Where will you put the servers?

For our initial tests we will have game servers in Central Europe (Frankfurt) and US East (N. Virginia). The exact locations of these servers are not set in stone, they may be changed depending on the results from the tests. The initial test is mostly to test the infrastructure that has been ported to our systems.

Account transfer
How can I change the email linked to my Bloodline Champions account?

You can change your email at Funcoms Account page.
Step 1: Login here: https://register.bloodlinechampions.com/account/
Step 2: Click on Update My Details on the left side of the page.
Step 3: Change your email in the input fields
Step 4: Update your details.
Please note: This is only available before the actual server transfer. If you have been unable to receive your activation key after this, please contact Funcom Support.

All skill shots, no RNG, most skill based PvP and "fair" PvP game I've played.

To elaborate, it's like you take the fun teamfights of Dota (or a similar game), every attack is a skill shot, remove crits and random numbers, fights are won based on who plays better (lands their attacks, doesn't break CC, dodges enemy skill shots) not which team is more farmed.

An arena game where you select your unique character and face off against the enemy team. This game has no items or minions or RNG. It's all about whether or not you can land your attacks and it often comes down to the wire.

Sadly, this game wasn't advertised properly and died. I only played it for a short while, but it was enough to win me over and have me mourning its loss everytime I see it mentioned.

I have well over 500 hours played on this game (it wasnt always on steam), and I must say: This is the best "Arena" based PVP game out there. Despite being pretty dead at this point, this game is AMAZING. Definitely worth the download.

This was and is a great game.
Probably the best PvP game of all time, and I have played A LOT of games.


It has had a few questionable updates, but it IS great, and I wish it would become popular.

I'm a fantasy pvp fan, but WoW Arena and LoL just take too much time to get anywhere fun (items, leveling, match duration, ...). BLC is just what fits into my life.

This is a very solid PVP arena game. It has the potential as a professional e-sports game... somehow it's dead now. I believe the reason behind this is just a bad marketing business.

Anyhow I enjoy the time when I play it. Very good game.

It's a great game, the mechanics are somewhat near to perfect and it's an innovative idea. Just erase that silly little idea called medallions and traits, and we'll be happy and recommend it to our friends!

Arguably a game changing pvp. This game simply need some exposure. I like the fact that its pure skill and the games are fairly short. I coulod say more but I will simply leave you with this. Play this game.

Bloodline Champions (Henceforth known as BLC) is a fantastic fantasy MOBA arena game. It does not include the standard: Shop, minions, towers, or jungle area. It is designed to test the player and their team with skillshots. The more skilled the player and the team, the better chance of a positive outcome. Don't forget team synergy. While some of the skills may feel similar from champion to champion you can be sure each champion has an original design and playstyle. This is probably the best or close to the best arena pvp I've encountered so far. I have not played in about a year now, and from what I hear the community is dead :(.

Gopd fun game, a good set of characters with 7 abilities, but the only downside is its hard to get in a live game because nobody plays this gem and most of he time you have to play against bots.

Legitimately the Best "MOBA". Every Champ has 5 ability plus Ult, though every Camp also has a get away (think like Sprint in wow or a Rocket jump to run away from enemies in TF2) and literally EVERY SINGLE ability is skill shot, even ur auto attacks, and no, there aint no ♥♥♥♥ing tower wars crap like in every other moba, you got CTF, CP/KOTH 1v1-5v5 Arena (like ACTUAL DM no re-spawn) and more, there is only like 15 camps, so no ♥♥♥♥ing garbage lern new character every week, ect, and its ReAlLy not you're traditional "moba". Sadly its dying, the skill thats needed to play high play in this game is far beyond LoL, so every baddie just gave up and ya know, 99% of the internet is nothing but baddies :(. seriously give this game a go. if u can get into a match/play with friends its fun as ♥♥♥♥
