Stick Arena Announcement!


(Kaelyn) #1

Hey Guys!

We wanted our awesome discourse community to be the very first to find out…


#2

This is great! Many users have suggested this, hopefully it will increase activity on Stick Arena.

Will it relatively be the same game? If so, it doesn’t exactly give a spur for players who have already played. You need to get the community excited with announcements like this. Add something, even if it’s miniscule - it’ll go a long way…

Awesome! As Apple said, many members have suggested this and I’m super stoked to see it happening. I believe this will do very well.


(Ajay) #6

Sounds cool. Would been nice if Ballistick came as an add-on or something, though.


#7

15+ weapon choices?


#8

I never thought the day like this will ever come. I now know that SA will still be playable right after Adobe stop supporting Flash in 2020.


#9

Very excited to see this; I will definitely be playing on steam. Great decision :slight_smile:

The problem is it requires a super processor running at 1.6 GHz or higher. I guess that means I can’t play then.

Damn this is amazing to see!
I know this is highly unlikely, but could we see something similar happening with BBH? :c


(Shad0ws / Jon) #12

Oh yeah, heard about that.

Definitely could bring people into the community, looking forward to it.

WOOT!! :smiley:

I do have a couple quick questions @Kaelyn , mostly regarding XGen accounts:

  1. Will the stats from the Flash version of SA carry over, or will everything be reset?
  2. Will other stuff such as spinners (including ‘restricted’ color spinners won in contests) from the Flash version carry over?
  3. Will any XGen account (e.g. my ,.x.school3r.x.,) be able to play, or just the ones that conform to the new naming convention (e.g. only accounts with no commas or dots and less than 15 characters)?
  4. If restricted color spinners do carry over, but old accounts with commas and dots aren’t able to play on Steam, would it be possible to transfer them to a different account?

Thanks for putting SA on Steam! Hopefully it will lead to a revival of the game!! :smiley:

Well, good job. The best possible decision. Hopefully it will bring back some old SA players and might be a couple new people will want to try play the game.

Hey Schooler, glad you’re excited! :grin:

The Steam version of Stick Arena uses the same servers as the current browser version does. That means that your account and everything associated with it will carry over. In particular, players using the browser version will be able to play in the same game as players using the Steam version. This will allow for players who prefer playing in browser to continue doing so until the Flash end of life and at the same time, allow other players to begin switching over to the steam version immediately.

In answer to your specific questions:

  1. Accounts, stats, everything will carry over since the steam and flash versions will operate in parallel.
  2. Color restricted spinners will carry over.
  3. Any XGen account will be able to play.
  4. Old accounts are allowed so no need to transfer :slight_smile:

Let me know if you have any other questions!

David.

Nice!! Thanks, David!


(Shad0ws / Jon) #17

All the people new to the game are going to be destroyed by old players.
It’ll be just like when we used to have guest games in the game list. Lmao.


(,.x.school3r.x.,) #18

Yes, but isn’t that how it always is in games like this? New players get destroyed by the old players, and they either quit the game because they find it too hard, or they keep playing, improve their skill, and before you know it they’re as good as the older players…

Lol if this game gets any attention on steam, the game gonna grow little by little.

Also, every good player was a bad player at one point.
