  URPG & Generation 8!
Posted by: K'sariya - 11-21-19, 01:00 AM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (8)

URPG & Generation 8!

Hello, all! I know you have all been anxiously awaiting the release of Generation 8! While we're close, we're not quite there yet due to some technical hangups and the sheer vastness of the changes to all of the Pokemon, but we wanted to give you all a head start to all of your Pokemon-obtaining aspirations by letting you all in on the way the new Pokemon will be ranked.

First, though, there are some supplementary changes that will help make the new rank list make sense. Please read these before viewing the rank list.

Pokemon Lists & Ranks of Evolutions

Ultimately, in URPG, the rank of a Pokemon that people pay the most attention to is that of its most basic form, as it is the easiest to obtain. Therefor, the ranks of the higher evolutions often end up not mattering. We've decided to simplify the ranking process for non-basic stages by making it so that evolved forms are one rank higher than the stage before it.

Many evolutions already followed this pattern, but standardizing it allowed us to move more quickly through deciding ranks. This also means that all lists of Pokemon will only show basic Pokemon. You will see these updated to reflect these changes over the next couple of days.

Existing Pokemon Rank Changes

We've been changing the way we rank Pokemon to better match how rewarding they are to use in URPG, rather than off of URPG-unrelated factors. We're shifting some existing Pokemon's ranks based on this philosophy.

Downward Rank Shifts

Upward Rank Shifts

Regarding already-submitted (but not yet curated/graded) Art and Stories for these Pokemon: when these works are curated or graded, they will be done so off of the lowest of the two ranks. If it went up with this change, it will be scored and passed/failed by the original rank, and if it went down, it will be scored and passed/failed by the new rank.

Ranks of New Pokemon

As for what you've been waiting for... first, some rules!

As of now, while we are releasing these ranks:

YOU MAY:
  • Begin writing and drawing for these Generation 8 Pokemon. You may also submit art and story pieces for these Pokemon.
  • Grade and curate pieces for these Generation 8 Pokemon.
  • Apply for an earned form for a Morphic character.

YOU MAY NOT:
  • Claim these Generation 8 Pokemon through any method at this time. You must wait until the full release to claim the graded/curated results of any Generation 8 captures.
  • Post with a Generation 8 Morphic form until full release.

We want to get these to you so that you may start working on earning them, but we're not ready for you to get them quite yet! So we're doing a partial release where you know what will be earnable through where, but they are not yet purchasable or obtainable.

Bot creators will let you know when their bots can accurately reflect these (and the QOL rank changes above them) in their rank commands!


Write-a-Roll Extension

To help everyone get what they'd like from Write-a-Roll, and allow people to write for new-generation Pokemon, Write-a-Roll has been extended to end on December 15th at 11:59 PST.

New Curation System

Our incredible curators have overhauled the curation system to be more flexible and easier to use for curators, and more predictable for artists! To accompany this rework, the Art Encyclopedia has been completely overhauled! You can read the new Encyclopedia, and find the details on the new curating system here! All existing works will be curated under the new system--and don't worry, through testing, we've found that this system is more lenient in its flexibility than the old, so this is to pending works' benefit, not detriment.

When Will the Full Generation 8 Release Happen?

We anticipate to have the full release out by the end of Wednesday, November 27th at the latest. We're just as excited for the full release as you are, and we are excited to get it out as soon as possible.

Just so you know how far we are, we have entered all Pokemon, their moves and their abilities into a version of the Ultradex that will be going live on full release. We have decided on almost all mechanical changes, and Senior Refs are finalizing the way 'maxing will work mechanically now.

Right now, we are combing through every Pokemon from the previous generation to compile a full changelog of what received new or changed moves in their movesets. As you can imagine, there are quite a lot to check, and this cross-checking work is quite meticulous, but we are working on it as quickly as possible, and our teams are well on it! When released, this extensive changelog will give you a full picture of what got what, and of course, what new things you'll want to buy! We are also waiting on a technical opportunity so that we can deploy the new Ultradex information at an opportune time, and this is one of our biggest hold-ups while we make preparations to ensure it will go smoothly.

We're almost there, and we appreciate the patience while we get the last bits ironed out! We look forward to earning Pokemon with you!

Posted by: VeloJello - 11-18-19, 12:57 PM - Forum: Events - Replies (180)

Prize Wheel of New Beginnings

Welcome, one and all, to the Sword and Shield Invitational Prize Wheel of New Beginnings! We have a fantastic wheel with great prizes lined up for our wonderful players, new and old alike!

The Rules
  • The cost for a spin is $1,500 for new players (players who have joined in August 2019, or have had a special exception made for their case), and $4,000 for others.
  • Each player may spin the wheel once per day by paying their cost.
  • However, bonus spins that do not count toward this limit may be earned by doing various new tasks!

Purchasing A Spin
Post the following to purchase a spin:
Current Funds: (how much money you currently have before the purchase)
Bonus Spin Link: (if applicable, post a link to the proof of your bonus spin)
Payment: ($1,500 for newbies, $4,000 for others; if you have a bonus spin, $0 for new players, $2,000 for others)
Change: (how much money you'll have left after deducting the payment!)

Then, post a link to your post in the #prize-wheel channel. There, an Approver, Official, or Moderator will then roll a d100 to determine your prize!

Bonus Spins (and how to earn them!)
Bonus spins are separate from the one-spin-per-day limit; they also cost $2,000 less than your daily spin (meaning they're free for new players!).

Each time you complete one of the following URPG challenges; make a post here with a link to the log or the relevant forum post(s) that'll earn you a bonus spin! Only quests completed during the invitational count for this. This can count for old members if you've never participated in that section before! These can only be completed once each.

These quests are:
  • Taking part in your first ever Battle that involves 3+ of your Pokemon
  • Taking part in your first ever Free-for-All battle
  • Taking part in your first Contest
  • Submitting your first Pokemon-related story for Grading in the Stories section
  • Submitting your first Pokemon-related art for curation in the Art section
  • Starting your sketchbook and submitting your first Pokemon-related sketchbook entry in the Art section

Kai, Fletchling - Ability: Big Pecks - Affiliation: none
This post affects no one.

When she awoke, she had a headache. She was laying down, face-first into the sand, eyes closed. Now that she thinks about it, there was a very high chance that should anyone have seen her, she would've looked very dead. With a sigh, she lifted her head so that it wasn't against the ground and tried to rub her bleary eyes. An odd feeling overcame her. Her arms refused to reach her eyeballs. And then... why was everything so big?

Blinking quickly to get rid of her sleepiness, she realized that she couldn't remember anything. Well, she could remember some things, like loud noises and battles and war cries, but she couldn't remember why she was here. She also couldn't seem to remember her name. That would be a problem.

Intertwined with her original set of memories was another. This one she could remember a bit more clearly. She remembered being a Fletchling. She remembered being born from an egg, learning to fly, and having a happy life. But no, that wasn't right... It didn't make sense. Was she a Fletchling or a human?

Pushing those disturbing thoughts away, she tried to remember her name. With the word "name," the word "Kai" kept coming to mind. It sounded a little... off for her to be called that, but nothing else came to mind, either, so she went with it.

Finally managing to stand upright, (she realized in the process that currently, she was a Fletchling, like her second set of thoughts) though it was quite challenging since wings weren't made for lifting, she said to the world, "My name is Kai, and apparently, I am a Fletchling." (But wait, she didn't say it, she chirped it, she chirped it in a high pitched note that sounded very Fletchling, but it sounded so wrong coming from her.)

Of course, there was no response. She hadn't expected one, instead using the moment to test out her words. (Why were Fletchling voices her so high, she couldn't stand it.)

Inspecting the terrain laid around her, she saw some rocks. No, she saw a lot of rocks and many, many cliffs. It seemed that the only way out would be through that slightly dangerous-looking zigzagging path. 

Kai sighed. (Or did she? She wasn't exactly sure. Could birds sigh?) And then it hit her and she had the sudden urge to slap her face, which her wings prevented her from doing so. She was a bird. Birds could fly. So that precarious zigzagging path, she could just completely ignore. 

Spreading her wings, Kai smirked. (But she had a beak. She couldn't smirk with a beak, could she?) She waited for a light gust of wind to help with her lift-of, then flapped hard. Luckily, with her second set of memories came instinct. 

Kai didn't know where she was going. Right now, she didn't care. She could ponder the past and the future later. For now, she glid around the coast like a Wingull scouting for leftovers. Why? Again, she didn't know, nor did she care. Maybe someone would find her and tell her what to do. At least gliding helped clear her thoughts.
