Armello - [LoG] WordSlice


Hey there folks!

Hope you've all wrapped your mitts around at least a few rare dice by now! Thank you all for your bug submissions and your patience with the release of this update.

Bug Fixes
  • Restored the Card Gallery, Prologue and Settings to what they were pre-v1.9.1. Any cards, prologue or settings changes made since the launch of v1.9.1 will be lost but all your previous progress will now be restored. Sincere apologies for the inconvenience. <3
  • Fixed an NMA that occurred when submitting a Bug Sender without an email address.
  • Fixed a rare NMA triggered by a poorly timed Bane death.
  • Fixed a rare NMA playing a Peril at the time as the King playing perils.
  • Potential or partial fix for the missing Chest asset on the Coin Flip. (The fabled magenta blob)

Known Issues
  • Issue where the King’s jaw flaps open too much when talking.


Cheers,

<3 Darcy & the LoG Squad


PS: ALL HAIL THE MAGENTA BLOB. WE ARE ONE WITH THE MAGENTA BLOB.

Greetings friends!

The time has come! v1.9.1 and along with it, the Rites of Ruin collection is crept in to Armello. Play Public Multiplayer games to collect Cursed Chests and Cursed Keys and combine them to uncover this creepy new dice collection. Thanks for your patience!

If you'd like to catch a preview of the Dice Skins in this set, hit up our Twitter or Facebook.

In addition to this, v1.9.1 comes with a few minor improvements and fixes, you'll find the patch notes here.


Cheers,

Greetings friends,

It's been some time since we launched the previous Collection, Druid's Bequest, and we're just about ready to plunge into corruption. From the 4th of October (Pacific Time), the mysterious Rites of Ruin collection will crawl into Armello and Dire Chests and Dire Keys will be awarded to players who complete multiplayer games.

You have one week to get your dirty mitts on Druid Chests and Druid Keys in-game, and then they will be consumed by the abyss. Keep a close eye on our Facebook and Twitter for spoilers leading up to the date.


May the coin flip in your favour,

<3 Darcy & the LoG Squad

EDIT: We hate to do this, but unfortunately v1.9.1 and the Rites of Ruin collection has been delayed until tomorrow, the 5th of October PT. It will land in the afternoon if all goes according to plan.

We've had a last minute game breaking bug pop up, causing the latest build candidate to be unsafe to push into your hands. As I understand it, there is an issue with the dice skins which is causing games to freak out and NMA.

We'll keep you in the loop and fix this bad boy up for you quick-smart. Thanks again for your vigilance and patience. Please hit me up if you have any questions.

Hello dearest Armellians,

It's happening. We're ready to commit to Fury Friday as a weekly event and I hope that you're as happy (& furious) as we are.

FURY FRIDAY!
As always, it'll be longer than 24 hours to hit as many Fridays as we can around the world. It will begin roughly 2:00pm Thursday PT and it will conclude at roughly 2:00am on Saturday PT.

When Fury Friday is active, games started through Public Multiplayer will have the Fury Mode House Rule active and the King will have one less health. This will mean quick, action packed Armello experiences to mix things up in the multiplayer queue.

Here are the key elements of Fury Mode
  • Very short turn times
  • Turn timer pauses in combat and perils
  • Burndown timer reduced in combat and perils
  • A short card draw timer applies per card
  • Questing / Hidden encounter timer is no longer independent, and instead adds time to your current turn timer
  • Shortened King’s Declaration timer
  • Shortened transitional sequences and AI animations
  • Instead of resetting the timer, taking actions grants seconds to your current turn.
  • Visualisation implemented for turn timer adjustments
  • Timer is visible at all times

There's a little FAQ (excuse the semi-copypasta) below because I just know you've got questions.

Happy gaming!

<3 Darcy and the LoG Squad



"More like FURRY MODE lol"
Haha okay friend we know, we know. <3 ːspiritstoneː

"Does Fury Friday happen every Friday?"
From now on, yes, it will. GET EXCITED!

"I don't like Fury Mode, what do I do on Fridays?!"
That's a bummer and I'm sorry to hear that. Everyone has their preference and, I hope you at least try it once or twice but I'm not going to tell you how to live your life. You can still play classic Armello in singleplayer and private multiplayer if your heart so desires. Otherwise, here's a few other activities you can do during this time:
  • Find a cardboard box and duct tape. Use it to craft armour and challenge a friend to friendly duel.
  • Do a real-life trickery play and tell a friend that a mutual friend of yours was talking smack about them behind their back. There's no better way to assert your dominance.
  • Bake a chocolate caramel cheesecake (obviously, the closest real-life action to casting a spell).

Jokes aside, it would be silly for us to assume that 100% of players want it this way. We are completely convinced, however, that this offers a variety in gameplay that ultimately provides more satisfying options to more players. We're going to keep working on creating more variety in Armello's future.

"Can you please create two queues so that it's optional"
We're always looking for ways to make the most amount of people happy. Happy gamers means happy developers. Maybe one day we'll be able to implement another queue, but our current infrastructure supports one so this is how things will be until further notice. They call me Darcy, not "Two Queue Tony", okay.

"When will this event begin and when will it end?"
As said above, it will begin roughly 2:00pm Thursday PDT and it will conclude at roughly 2:00am on Saturday PDT. If you're not in the PDT timezone then all is lost and life is chaos (or use a cool widgetty thing like this to convert the time for you).

Also, I say roughly because we are merely meat creatures on a rock floating through existence, and anything can happen. Someone might delay us with a cardboard armour duel or something idk.

Hi there!

What's poppin'? Hope you're all having a lovely week. Naturally the codery have been plugging away at fixes and some of them have been declared safe enough to launch into the live build, so here you have it.

If you have been submitting bug reports, you are powerful and brave. You're the best.

Bug Fixes
  • Rare NMA fix for when a player died after Combat during the death fade out.
  • Fixed NMA during Fury Mode when entering Combat on 0 time remaining.
  • Rare fixed NMA when burning cards after the Dice roll.

Known Issues
  • If you play a singleplayer game in Dutch and go to continue the saved game; it can NMA. If you switch to English this will resolve the issue after restarting Armello.
  • The volume of some sounds isn't being modified by the volume sliders, such as the Rot Vines growing from the Palace.
  • If you have a saved Singleplayer game that saved when the King's health was 0, continuing it will result in an NMA. If you clear the save game by starting a new Singleplayer, Armello will resolve.

Cheers,

<3 Darcy & the LoG Squad

  • The volume of some sounds isn't being modified by the volume sliders, such as the Rot Vines growing from the Palace.
  • If you have a saved Singleplayer game that saved when the King's health was 0, continuing it will result in an NMA. If you clear the save game by starting a new Singleplayer, Armello will resolve.

Hello, furious Armellians,

This coming Friday will be a FURY FRIDAY! As always, it'll be longer than 24 hours to hit as many Fridays as we can around the world. It will begin roughly 2:00pm Thursday PDT and it will conclude at roughly 2:00am on Saturday PDT.

Also, slightly unrelated but remember that the Anniversary Event is still live and will remain as such until Thursday the 7th of September (PDT).

I'll have a fun little FAQ below because I just know you've got questions.

Happy gaming!

"Does Fury Friday happen every Friday?"
Not currently, but maybe eventually. We're just feeling out the vibe, playing it by ear and also other metaphors.

"I don't like Fury Mode, what do I do in this time?"
That's a bummer, I hope you at least try it once or twice but I'm not going to tell you how to live your life. You can still play classic Armello in singleplayer and private multiplayer if your heart so desires. Otherwise, here's a few other activities you can do during this time:

  • Do a real-life trickery play and tell a friend that a mutual friend of yours was talking smack about them behind their back. There's no better way to assert your dominance.

"Can you please create two queues so that it's optional"
Maybe one day, but our current infrastructure supports one so that's how things will be until further notice. My name is Darcy, not "Two Queue Terry", okay.

"When will this event begin and when will it end?"
As said above, it will begin roughly 2:00pm Thursday PDT and it will conclude at roughly 2:00am on Saturday PDT. If you're not in the PDT timezone then all is lost and life is chaos (or use a cool widgetty thing like this to convert the time for you).

Also, I say roughly because we are merely meat creatures on a rock floating through existence, and anything can happen. Someone might challenge us to a cardboard armour duel or something idk.

"This whole FAQ is weird and I'm uncomfortable."
Listen I'm just trying to spread my wings over here, let me get weird with it.

HAIL FRIENDS!

Roses are red,
Voilets are blue,
We've got another,
Hotfix for you.

<3

Have a glorious day.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a Combat NMA where a player clicks "Enter Palace" just before the timer runs out and there is a King's Guard on the palace tile. There was also a rare chance of it happening on a vacant Palace tile.
  • Fixed a very rare NMA involving Malice Rising.
  • Fixed a very rare NMA involving the Stranger.

Known Issues
  • If you play a singleplayer game in Dutch and go to continue the saved game; it can NMA. If you switch to English this will resolve the issue after restarting Armello.
  • The volume of some sounds isn't being modified by the volume sliders, such as the Rot Vines growing from the Palace.

Hello!

As mentioned the other day, we're celebrating Armello's second birthday, and the celebrations have begun!

From now until Thursday the 7th (PDT), after completing Public Multiplayer games you will have a small chance to receive the Pride's Destiny dice.

Once again, important things to note:
  • You can obtain multiple sets of these if you're lucky (even if you already have them). Sell your extras on the Steam marketplace or gift them to an ally. <3
  • You are not guaranteed to receive these dice. They are rare.
  • Pride's Destiny visually scale in-game relevant to your Hero's Rot.
  • There is an internal drop limit in Armello to stop exploiters/farmers/botters. If you play a lot and stop receiving coin flips, you have likely hit this limit. Fear not, this refreshes daily.

Good luck in your games and be sure to show off the dice you find.


Cheers,

<3 Darcy & the LoG Squad

Greetings all!

This week marks the second year since Armello's release which is pretty crazy, considering just last week we hit a new high in concurrent players. Those who have been with us for the long haul know how far Armello has come and hopefully you're pumped for what's brewing for the future.

On behalf of the Geeks, thank you for cruising with us for another incredible year.

For one week, beginning on Friday the 1st of September (PDT) and ending Thursday the 7th, after completing Public Multiplayer games you will have a small chance to receive the Pride's Destiny dice.

Important things to note:
  • You can obtain multiple sets of these if you're lucky (even if you already have them). Sell your extras on the Steam marketplace or gift them to an ally. <3
  • You are not guaranteed to receive these dice. They are rare.
  • Pride's Destiny visually scale in-game relevant to your Hero's Rot.
  • There is an internal drop limit in Armello to stop exploiters/farmers/botters. If you play a lot and stop receiving coin flips, you have likely hit this limit. Fear not, this refreshes daily.

May the Wyld be in your favour and good luck on your journey for the throne.


Cheers,

<3 Darcy & the LoG Squad
