Holybread Report #1 | Breadcrumbs, bans and progress

avatar

It has been a busy first week of Holybread. Busy but very exciting! There was a lot going on on our discord server, bugs have been repored and fixed. Players had lots of suggestions. To keep everyone who is not a member of the discord server updated, we shortly want to sum up what was going on the last few days.

Breadcrumbs

Earlier we announced that the buyback of Breadcrumbs will happen on sundays at a random time. Keep in mind that we are refering to UTC+1 timezone (just as we did in previous posts). We do not announce a specific time in order to prevent bots from taking advantage of the buyback.

Last Sunday we were able to use 855 STEEM for our buyback and managed to get 29,770,000 Breadcrumbs from sellers. The transactions can be seen here: https://steem-engine.rocks/@holybread

We bought Breadcrumbs in stacks of 10M, 8M, 8M, 3M and 0.77M at different times.

Note: Every week we take 20% of everything that is in our prize pool. The rest stays in there for the following week. That's to make sure that the prize pool is distributed over a long period of time. Currently we have over 4,700 STEEM in our prize pool.

Bans of bots and abusers

Over the last week we managed to make the game way more secure and fixed many small bugs. Users did a great job in finding and reporting these bugs. Thanks to all user that helped us on the way of our great progress.

Sadly we also have to report that there have been a few users who abused a bug intentionally cheating their way to the top area of the leaderboard. We have stated multiple times (Discord and Steem post) that we do not allow intentional abuse of bugs and that it may lead to permanent ban. The rules are also linked ingame.

We have now taken the required steps and banned these players from our game as they showed clear intention. They won't be able to log in again. If you are one of those players and you feel like you shouldn't have been banned you can contact us on our Discord.

We can also report that we managed to identify over 70 farm bots in Holybread which we banned permanently. We will keep on banning accounts which don't stick to the core rules of the game.

Progress in game development

In the beginning we were quite busy with fixing bugs and answering questions. Slowly we are getting to a point where we are able to develop more features for the game and start developing the first big ingame usecase for Breadcrumbs.

Besides mostly fixing bug we introduced a few small features over the last week:

  • More filter options in the market
  • A "liveticker" under every arena fight
  • Premium icon

These are small features but with more and more bugs being gone we will be able to focus our time mostly on introducing new features and updates. Our goal is to constantly add new stuff to Holybread.

Tolles Spiel, freue mich auf die ersten Dungeons, vielleicht später auch Raids. Gut das ihr gegen Bots vorgeht.
Krieger Tank (Zwei Waffenslots) mit Schwert und Schild wäre vielleicht auch interessant. So könnte man entweder auf Schadensreduktion oder Damage skillen.

Thaaanks a lot, @holybread, @auminda and @thebluewin, for all the work you've done and for your great availability! :-)

I'm not sure if this suggestion has been made through the Discord channel:

could our own hero (or heroes) stats be "embedded" on the right side of the https://www.holybread.io/arena/ screen? This overview would ease our choice of the best suited next fight, on the basis of our own features :-)

Ihr macht echt einen tollen Job! Hoffe es gelingt Euch weiterhin. Wenn ich mir nur vorstelle was Ihr die letzte Woche geleistet habt, muss die Frage bei so wenig Man Power erlaubt sein " Ist das weiterhin zu schaffen oder braucht Ihr noch Unterstützung? LG Michael !invest_vote

You guys are doing a great job! Hope you keep on doing it. When I think about what you have achieved the last week, the question must be allowed with so little man power: "Can you still manage it or do you still need support? Greetings Michael

Danke @mima2606 so ein Lob tut sehr gut :)
Du hast recht für ein Zwei-Mann/Frau Team ist das viel Arbeit, aber wir sind guter Dinge, dass es ein Kleinwenig entspannter wird. Je nach dem wie sich das Spiel langfristig entwickelt werden wir früher oder später vielleicht schon darüber nachdenken unser Team zu erweitern. Mal sehen wo die Reise hinführt :)
