   It’s been almost a month and a half since the Gameplay Tune-Up’s first wave of testers were given their initial bumignment. What have we been up to in that time? I’ll tell you.

   The first week’s tests involved logging in to the test server, and prompted Evil Trout to shut down some “crucial” (read: not crucial) services, because some pranksters thought it would be funny to take popular names on the test server.

   The second week’s tests involved a thread casting a negative status effect (debuff) on the player, and a retool of the way lemon scoops are earned. The new status effect, called Ad Hominem, deals persistent damage to the player, and is cured by a new drug, currently called Remember-Not. The lemon formula wasn’t so hot.

   The third week’s tests involved making sure that Ad Hominem works properly in all situations, and introduced a battle log that keeps track of what has happened to you during the forum battle. Moreover, the lemon scoop formula was greatly improved, and time and thread count will no longer be factors in trying to earn your three yellows per visit. Furthermore, a new type of collectable was introduced: fans. You gain fans when you pwn fora, and lose them during rollover. The full formula for how you lose fans has yet to be discovered, but it has been noted that you lose fewer fans while you are streaking. (People like naked people, apparently.)

   The fourth week introduced an ability called AFK that increases your defense, but does nothing else. The ability has no cooldown, and at the time, had no seeming value in pwning. This was offset when Evil Trout introduced some new thread debuffs, each of which “inactivates” all of your abilities by a number of turns (1, 3 or 6 on the test server). These are prevented beforehand by consumables purchased in von Neumann’s.

   The current week introduces consumable decay. Consumables that go unused for a period of time go bad, decaying into junk items that then decay into other junk items. At present, some interesting junk items have been discovered, and there may be more to be found.

   And that’s what we’ve been up to over on the test server.

There wasn’t a non-disclosure rule. See http://forumwarz.com/discussions/view_post/581278

Unlike with Episode-based testing, you will be free to discuss upcoming changes in public places. None of what we’re working on will be secret.

Wait a second, so it’s 1-2-3 repeat rather than 1-2 repeat?

Well, you’re on the right track.

Why is there never any Hacker Love? 5, 3, 7, 3, 2, 3, 5, 3, 2, 4, 3, 2, 7, 3, 2, 3, 5…. At least with my setup and not taking into account when weaker attacks would kill the thread or timing mistakes Log in to see images!

Seriously though, it’s nice to hear about multiple stat effects and a Lemon scoop system that won’t rely on getting the lowest thread count and servers running 100% in line with your connection Log in to see images!...

I look forward to the second round of testing so I can experience a bit of it myself.

Would it make you happy to know that the new Lemon Scoop algorithm will separate rewards based on clbum?

There’s plenty of time at the moment before it goes live. And based on current data, you’ll have time to sell your stuff even after it goes live, before it starts to expire.

In my opinion, it is too soon to say if it is a benefit to sell or keep. If the degrading stuff evolves into something useful, it is in your interest to keep consumables.

But I agree, I’d prefer some serious disclosure as we move along. Some of the advantages that seemed to be included for players who were beta testing Episode 2 (books becoming important and expensive, all consumables bumping radically in price) may have skewed the advantage they entered Ep 2 with.
