Stunlock Studios will take over the hosting of Bloodline Champions servers

Funcom will be closing down the servers for Bloodline Champions by the end of January 2015. We know there are a lot of players out there who enjoy the game, so we will make sure they can keep enjoying it! This is no promise that development of the game will be increased, but there will be more energy aimed towards the game from our end.

To start we need to get the game running properly on our end with new servers and tools, since the game will need to be disconnected from the Funcom backend systems such as account, shop and billing. The plan is to have our servers up and running before Funcom close theirs so there will be minimal downtime during the switch to Stunlock Servers.

What does this mean? What will change?

Accounts
The plan is that nothing will actually change. You keep everything you own on your account, like Bloodlines, Weapons, Outfits, all your Currency and so on.

The only thing that will change regarding accounts is that we will be using Steam for account authentication.

Everyone who already has an account at the time of the hosting switch will be sent a key to their email address used on their Funcom account connected to Bloodline Champions. This key can be used to connect the existing Bloodline Champions account to a Steam account. You’ll need to do this even if you play via steam today.

Pricing
When we take over you will see some changes to the pricing models of the game and also some new packages available on Steam. The plan for this is still under construction, so there’s not much more to say about it at this point.

Servers
We are currently in the process of finding the best solution for hosting the servers for the game, so at the moment there is no information about exact locations and so on. We are researching different hosts and we will do our very best to get an optimal solution for the game. Some things are hard to test without actually running the game with real servers so the evaluation of the server solution will be continued even after we go live with the new servers.

Community
When it comes to forums and the community we will work with BLChampions.com as an official partner, these are very driven and ambitious guys who will handle the administration and moderation of the forum which will be the place to go for announcements, discussion and so on.

Since everyone will have to use Steam to play Bloodline Champions from now on, you will also see a bit more energy focused to the Steam Community Hub for Bloodline Champions.

We hope to see you there!

Cheers
The Stunlock Team

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.

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.

Next to Dota2, one of my favorite MOBA style games. I just wish there was a larger community to support this game.

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.

From what I've seen, fun game and an interesting concept of a different style of MOBA.

However, if you're a new player (like me) it's almost impossible to get a game going with other people. Waiting in the queue time "Searching for other players" will most likely be your most game time play unless you do singleplayer. You're also not going to get placed in any games with lower experience as you so be prepared to get demolished for your first few games.

Good game, just a dead player base for lower levels.

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 :(.

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!
