Instant Replay Feature
Written by Logress   
Wednesday, 24 February 2010 19:29

Okay, this isn't the most mind blowing new thing ever, but somehow this feature got past me in the chaos of the morning, and since many of our users are non-paying users, I thought this might interest someone (maybe). 

SAVING replays is a premium feature, but PLAYING back an Instant Replay is not. So, only Members or Trial Members get the Save button at the end of their battles, but everyone gets the Replay button. That means you can Replay a battle as many times as you want until you return to the Arena.  So what's the point of that? First of all, if you missed a chance to screen cap a guy who was being cheap or cheating, it's no problem. If you're learning, you can use it to review what the enemy did. Most importantly, though, is that everyone can record a duel and post it to you-tube using their favorite video capture program, but how do you know in advance if a duel was worth the trouble to capture?  Now if you have an awesome duel you can just Replay and record.

 

Premium Cashier

Just a quick FYI, the cashier is now accesable to users all again and premium purchases should be working. All you have to do to get premium features is buy at least 1100 gran. That's it. No extra cost. No extra work to do. If you spend as little as 10$ a month on Alteil anyway then you'll have premium features for ever. If you purchase more you get more and later purchases will just add to your total (extend your expiration dates). So that means you big spenders will basically be "premium 4 life". ;)

 As always this is a new system and while we have tested the heck out of it, issues do crop up. If you have any issues with the cashier please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and let us know. Operators (me) are standing by!

Yes, that's right, today's big announcement is the Introductory Quest. Why, were you expecting something else? You see, I TOLD everyone that the surprise for today wouldn't be the Premium Features (Logically, with last night's posts it wasn't a surprise.) I never lie. Now, go spend money on our game, it'll make unicorns happy.

Disregard Premium Features

This morning, after the 6 hour maintenance, there will be notices all over the site about so called 'Premium Features.'  Do not be fooled! These links will send you to the Cashier, where there will be NO Premium activation functionality (although, in a TOTALLY unrelated note, the cashier will go down around 9 AM while we add some COMPLETELY UNRELATED functionality (really))*.

And to dispel any totally BASELESS rumors, Premium Features are NOT the surprise we have planned tomorrow. We mean it!

 If you successfully disregard tomorrow morning's notices about Premium Features, there will be CAKE.

So, a day late and a dollar short they say. I dunno about the dollar short bit but I am a day late. Actually, as I really wanted to post these saturday so you could have them to look over on Cupids big day. 2 days late. I however failed. Do forgive me. I'm lenient on all of you with dead lines, so hopefully you want hold it against me. I'd love to blame Edgar some how on this one but no dice. :P

Anyway, without further adeu I present our top 3 winners! There may have been some entries that had a smidgen more "artistic merit", but these are the three that I felt most represented the valentines day cards of my youth. Simple art, terribly delicious puns!
