Warlight 2.0 Guess Topic: 7/1/2013 15:35:24

We'll be gifted with a new version of Warlight:

http://blog.warlight.net/index.php/2013/07/warlight-2-0-is-coming/

I guess a big graphic overhaul, and non-members being able to use stuff like statistics and ladder. The tournaments and games with high number of players will remain as a member feature only.

And maybe the long-waited clan system and other types of ladders.

What do you guess, guys?

i was thinking nonmembers can probably create large games and maybe tourneys, but only a certain amount per week or something, an official clan system would be nice, but i dont think that will be put in, i love how there are ads, because now fizzer wont ever have to shut down the site because of going broke and warlight can flourish for many years, there is probably an official diplo thing or something now (or like i said earlier in this comment, limited amount of games per week) to get nonmembers to stop begging, maybe he has another ladder as well (3v3, realtime, something like that)

First, anyone have an idea of when this is coming? I know Fizzer doesn't usually post things too far ahead of time.

Predictions off the top of my head:
-Non members getting more functionality for every year they've been on the site
-Top-level non-members somehow gaining access to the ladders
-No clan system (think this will happen eventually but not in this update)
-More options for tournaments?
-"Settings" tab overhaul
-Better AI?

It would indeed be nice to see an official clan system in Warlight, but I think you're right there and it would be also nice to have better AI :p, or being to set their playing strenght on a table of perhaps 1-20.

I think the game definetely need a new single player mode, so warlight can post the new version in kongregate (that one is too old anyway).
What i think it would be really cool if there were a new single player mode is a campaign. Make bonuses small, without cards, a map of a city, 1 enemy only, etc, thats your 1st level. Than you move to the map of a country, a little bigger bonuses, and you introduce a few cards, and thats 2nd. Than a map of region, more bonuses, enemies and cards. So forth until the world map, with lots of enemies (something like is today already, but more of the feeling of a carry on, maybe a written history?) players here would love to help.
Also, it can't have that high difficulties on the last levels, but a hard mode after campaign with handicaped AI.
In tutorial could use the risk map everyone is familiarized with, 1 or 2 quick tutorial levels.



I dont imagine 2.0 without some major changes. A new card, new background, new colors, 3v3 ladder and maybe one or two more seasonal ladders.
Something i would like to see implemented is any kind of feature that can customize even more game experience. I personally would like to see more cards, some passive, some changing other factors of the game, and i think all upgradable.
But that is just a dream, not reality.
But as i am dreaming, i can give an example.
Cards can be upgraded instaed of giving multiple cards.
Spy, reconnaissance and surveillance are clear examples of how upgrades could work.
The reinfo card could be for 4 armies lvl1, 9 armies lvl2, 15 armies lvl3.
The order priority could be lvl 1 as it is, level 2 you move everythin you want inside your territory as priority, lvl 3 all moves you want are priority.
Airlift is clearly lvl 3 of a teleport like card. Abandon and Blockade are in the same group also. OD card can work similar to what playing multiple cards is worth now.
I think is a nice feature, as well to a possible campaign, because you would unlock the sequencial upgrades in the stages.

Well, sorry for getting carried away.

Maybe non members can make tournaments, but they are still limited to settings currently offered to non members?

My guesses:


  • Non-members can create tournaments (with no member settings) - Chris got there before me on that one :D
  • Non-members can make a certain number of games with some (no custom scenarios or move order changes) member settings per x days.
  • Non-members can access some statistics.
  • Slightly less likely guess: Non-members can play in the ladder for x days every y days, or x games every y days.

Maybe just a few more auto-games with member-features ?
Most likely a better way of customizing auto-games(currently you need to know exactly how to, if you want to change the boot-settings of an auto-game)

- Instead of the arrows indicating an army attack/transfer I really hope Fizzer sees sense and replaces them with dancing chickens.

- Another novel suggestion is creating an exclusive member ladder for chickens. I think it's high time the ethnic minorities needs were provided for. I'm sick of having damn humans play me all the time and think it's oh so original to talk about how they were just at KFC.

- Maybe minus percentage luck that would be interesting.

My Guesses:

- non-members can make games with modified luck
- non-members can view statistics
- tournaments still members only
- a new ladder that non-members can join (or maybe open the seasonal ladder to non-members)

why seasonal ladder? if any ladder is open to non members, i think it would be the 2v2 ladder as long as they are with a member partner and have been invited to the team BYE the member

Maybe the non-members can change luck to specific values (not anything like members can).

I'm hoping one thing:
Non-members can create tournaments on their own made maps!

Only on them, that's enough. Otherwhise i fear a flood of poor tournaments.

(and maybe the tournaments-page gets a thumbnail which map is played)

some of these preictions are very unlikely :/ For exmaple making new ladders for non-members or even the 3v3 ladder which people have asked for so many times.

The rules where they can use member funcitons for x games every y games is also bad, allowe full use or none at all.
It will be interesting to see if he allows non-members to make games with less luck, maybe only 75% or 16% (or 0%), but i doubt it as well.

Statistics page for non-members will be nice, isn´t a massive addittion to the game but is always intersting to see the luck difference in each game you play.

Anything time-related (for more time you get more things you can use, games per time etc.) I think won´t be added.

my 2 cents

I have the strange feeling that non-members will be able to pay for some features or pay-per-use or something.. like for example $2 for being able to host 10 tournaments or something along those lines...

I hope 2.0 will bring the long-awaited AI overhaul. I don't think there will be big graphic changes, because Fizzer says every graphics change breaks habits (I'd have to quote some blog post on it, but you should get the point).

Also, I'd like to see some new APIs.

You all betting it is just a member-non member-ladder-tournament thing?

Why it will be called 2.0 than? No change or enhancement to gameplay?

I guess that non members will get access to a mobile client, but that client has a lot of advertising on it. I think that is the best way to get money these days. Also, I think non members will get more options in creating games. I think those will be the main changes to be honest.

the mobile client is not available to members since it is unfinished. i think that once it finished then it will be available to everyone. more advertising is good for the game since it will probably be minimal. also so that the game will be around longer and fizzer can start making money off the game. im just hoping that being a member wont become useless since more options will be offered to the non-member players.

I agree on the clan part. I would be VERY surprised to see something official on clans.
