[10:05 AM] TheKillerNacho: 

All Maps for TOC XIII are now locked in, and I’ve order the Quarter-Finals maps by winrate to favor the higher seeds slightly, this time (decided to go with RWSG’s idea in suggestions moving forward). Thus, after a coin flip to determine which Semi-Finals map would be used where, here’s the matchups!
:here: Seed 1 vs Seed 8 on 70) Nelveska Temple
:here: Seed 4 vs Seed 5 on 110) VALKYRIES
:here: Seed 6 vs Seed 3 on 58) Underground Book Storage Second Floor
:here: Seed 7 vs Seed 2 on 15) Gate of Limberry Castle
:here: Winner of the first two matches on 32) Slums in Dorter
:here: Winner of the next two matches on 126) Enhasa Zeal City
:here: Winner of the previous two matches on 37) Ruins Outside Zaland :here: S13 Finalist vs Champion of Champions on 54) Lost Sacred Precincts

Hope everyone’s as excited as I am!!! Just a little under 23 hours away from the preceding Pre-Show!

It’s time for Semi-Final map voting… and CoC Defense Match voting all in one (because I’m running out of time lol)! This time I asked app developers @OtherBrand and @q99m to submit their favorite maps for Semi-Final consideration, and as usual, the @Champion of Champions themselves chose five maps that they want to defend their title on! Vote here: https://forms.gle/hnt4HtHb5BrBd5r57

Voting will end 1:00 PM ET tomorrow!

Got a boatload of Channel Points? Want to pick a map for TOC XIII? Excellent! A new Channel Point reward has been added for 1 million Channel Points to pick a map! First four people to do it pick. Must be a map that hasn’t appeared in a TOC previously (see Corpus’ list here: https://discord.com/channels/665021428239958017/665021428889813043/934187714788622389). Arena and Checkerboard Land cannot be chosen.

Only the first four will be able to buy this, obviously. (edited)

Very long awaited request implemented finally:
:here: The bot will now output a message in chat automatically when a new track begins. I cannot guarantee this will work if a track changes between tournaments, or when I take the playlist down to add new songs. Let me know if you notice any bugs with this or if the bot seems less responsive (as I currently have the bot thread itself doing this). (edited)

Okay, okay, I hear you – Dracolich Calcs are really, really bad and aren’t fun. They are no more! Details below…
:here: Dracolich Skill (Skeleton/Dragon) and Leech Skill (Ghost/Squid) have been removed.
:here: Two new combination Blue Magic types have been added: Crypt Skill (Ghost/Dragon) and Pirate Skill (Skeleton/Squid).
:here: Legacy units that had Dracolich Skill will now have Crypt Skill instead, while legacy units that had Leech Skill will instead have Pirate Skill.
:here: Unrelated to the above changes, I changed the name of Dragon Skill to Dinosaur Skill to avoid potential confusion that it only contains Dragon Skill. It was a bit of an oddball as it was the only Blue Magic types still sharing its name with a monster family, despite it being a combination of both Dragon and Hydra.

I changed the way the bot recognizes users slightly to fix an issue that can happen with twitch display (capitalized) names (somehow it seems certain uses have snuck or bugged to include a space in them). If you notice anyone whose account appears to be reset, lmk immediately. Also lmk if the bot seems to no longer recognize your name’s capitaization. thanks. (edited)

I’ve decided that the first four maps in ToC12 would be the four maps with the most balanced winrates that haven’t appeared in ToC before… @CorvusCaw will be able to check off these four after the event:
30) Floor of Goland Colliery
4) Lesalia Castle
72) Fovoham Plains
69) Murond Death City

These will be randomized when the full map lineup is determined. Stay tuned for semifinal, finals, and Champion match selection!

Semi-final map selection from our little meme tournament:
7) Riovannes Castle (made by @Run With Stone Guns )

I get to pick finals map, and I choose:
124) Phantom Train

CoC defense map voting will be open whenever the hell they get me a map list.

This update has been a bit overdue but ToC XII preshow preparations are now underway! Preshow this time around will consist of a unit draft, made up of player submitted units; if you want to see the details on the specific rules, check out the pins in #preshow. You can ask any questions you’ve got there too. If you’re interested in submitting a unit yourself, check out the pinned rules in #unit-submissions! There are a few basic limitations for units that are being submitted so make sure you check the rules first. Here are your Captains for this season’s preshow:
Red – @lowlf – More Eyes!
Blue – @q99m
Green – @jonnycue
Yellow – @Oaty McGoaty
White – @SMOKEBOWLINGTON
Black – @DavenIII

Big update just dropped! Over two years in the making (including two previous test streams), this update contains a ton of balance changes, a new stream GUI, and more! For the first day, the Meme Champs will be taking challengers to make sure everything is just right. Also, I’ll get to updating the lookup commands in a day or so, so they’ll be outdated for now. I’ll get patch notes this weekend, as well. Sorry for the inconvenience! (edited)💯6fftbgMurder3fftbgBeheChamp1

With the season ending in just 25 days, here’s one final standings update for the Seasonal Class Quest! The Monster Manual prize seems to have been reduced to a three-way race between @Geomancerwall , @SebenSilhouette , and @Eldente . However, keep trying your best! The top five non-VIPs will be awarded a VIP on the channel, too! In the case of ties, whoever reaches that number first wins the tie. Best of luck to everyone in the final leg of this race! (edited)

I’m happy to announce the date of TOC XII, season 12’s conclusion. It will occur on April 23rd at 1 PM ET! @⚡Virilikus⚡ will return with commentary, this time rejoined by @Rislyeu! Hope to see everyone there!🇹11🇴8🇨9💸1Viripogchamp2TheKillerNachoBummed out that you missed out on a chance to get a hard copy of the Monster Manual? Or not even try because you felt it was out of reach due to others getting a head start? Well, thanks to @q99m , I’m happy to announce a new contest to obtain one that everyone should have a shot at! I give you the… Seasonal Class Quest! You will now notice a season drop-down on q99m’s site: https://atsymboldot.github.io/fftbg/leaderboard.html Basically, whoever is at the top of the default leaderboard for Season 12 at the end of the season is the winner! That means that human classes do count, but there’s only twenty of them and fifty-five monsters, so you’ll need to heavily dip into the monster ranks to have a chance at winning! If there’s a tie at the season’s end, whoever reached that number first will win the tiebreaker. The top 5 players without a VIP will get one as a secondary prize! (edited)

While originally the “War Funds” of the FFTBG save files were a neat Easter Egg making reference to FFT’s release date, I decided to change it to give it a functional purpose. Instead, it will now be the time that the tournament’s save was generated (hhmmss). This should help somewhat if you’re VOD-diving to find a specific tournament or something (originally I was going to put the tournament ID but there’s not enough characters). PLEASE NOTE: this timestamp refers to memory card generation time (in ET, my local time zone), so it will not update each match, and it will be a couple minutes after the listed time on fftbg.com… but it should still make finding things way easier and give you a way to crossreference what time something occured on the VOD video alone.

Or any other strange thing. Thanks. (edited)hamtwerk1

[11:23 AM] TheKillerNacho: 

Changes to progression…
:here: The Gil Floor bonus per ascension is being reduced from 100G to 50G.
:here: The Gil Floor bonus per level is being increased from 4G to 5G.
:here: The ToC Gil multiplier for subs is being reduced from x2 to x1.5.

This will effectively lower the Gil Floor cap from 1,200G to 1,000G (but increase it from 600G to 700G for unascended players). The overall goal of this is to make the gambling aspect of the stream more important and interesting, while also slightly lowering Gil inflation (hopefully). It should also make early ascensions easier while also making later ones not so much of a breeze.

I also refined Gil amount parsing, and added a new feature to it:

:here: You can now bet multitudes (or percentages of) your floor, by putting “floor” or “f” after the amount. For instance, “!bet 2f red” will put a bet for red for 2 times your floor, while “!bet 0.5floor blue” will put a bet in for half your floor for blue. Note that the shortcut command, !betf, is unchanged (!bet2f won’t work).
:here: Betting a percentage now allows for decimals. So you can bet 6.66% or 0.5% now, if you wanted.
:here: The “allbut” prefix now has “ab” as a keyword… For example, “!bet ab2f green” will put a bet of all of your Gil except two times your floor on green.
:here: To reduce errors, when parsing Gil, “allin” is now recognized as “all”, “halfin” is now recognized as “half”, and “f” and “betf” is now recognized as “floor”. Thus, “!bet allin yellow” will no longer produce an error.

Please let me know of any errors or issues with these changes in bug-reports.
