Halloween 2015 GD Battle Results

Written by Felix Nova on Fri, Nov 6, 2015 4:31 PM

This weekend marks the 7th year since I launched GD and I think I love it here more now than ever before. Some of you GD’ers have been around since pretty much the beginning of this adventure and many of you always find a moment to drop by GD to say hi, which shows the sort of love a strong community like ours can foster. The way I see it, my role is to keep finding ways of making GD special and more than just a standard website experience. While this is challenging it is also incredibly rewarding and fun.

In case you missed it, last weekend was Halloween. Not everyone pays this any mind, but its a silly and fun time of year. Well, I figured, lets have some of that fun here on GD. So naturally I infected a handful of people, who were reliably active on GD, with either vampirism or lycanthropy. I told no one about what was happening and then let people discover the situation for themselves. Over the following days the two sides began spreading their affliction amongst the good people of GD with merciless abandon.

Everyone was fighting over any newcomers to the site to try and swell their ranks, while attacking the opposing side to score points, level up, get stronger and stop their opposition from gathering strength. Below I am going to share a whole bunch of numbers regarding the awesome event and even see who manage to dethrone the Puppet Master.

Before I go into the Halloween stats though I wanted to point out that following last weeks awesome event, this week we launch the 2015 Global Game Awards (GGA). An industry event which GD hosts, where GD gets to tell the world about all the best that a year in gaming and hardware has to offer. Please head over and cast your votes and help spread the word via social media.

Two additional points of interest with the GGA 2015.

Firstly, for every tweet you send you are also entered into every free game giveaway draw we have during the GGA 2015 event.

Secondly, in the awards click the Support button to visibly cast your GD name as a supporter of a particular nominee. You can do this as often as you like and you earn a few rank points for offering up your allegiance.

And there we have it. A complete blood bath. GD member turned on GD member, who then turned on GD creator. You guys are ruthless. Brilliant!

Our GD Halloween battle game took me about 2 hours to design from scratch and about 5 working days to develop/debug and weave into GD seamlessly. Some of the parameters I set myself were probably obvious. I knew there would be no money coming back to the site if we made this internal game, so it would need to be relatively quick to make and definitely fun. Its always a risk adding this sort of thing into GD as it might not be appreciated. But I reckon I know you lot pretty well by now and the Halloween game was a huge success.

Imagine what we could do on GD if I planned out something much bigger and could work out how to make it pay for itself? I havent ruled it out either, as it really is a lot of fun gamifying aspects of GD and giving everyone something to do on the site while we wait for news and games to arrive.

Watch this space guys.

Oh and you will all notice that for anyone that got involved in the Werewolf vs Vampire battle you will have a badge to represent your participation.

To encourage this sort of event in the future please consider supporting GD for any amount you can afford, this generosity will also help secure GD’s future on the net. I fear there are tough roads ahead as the advertising revenue model crumples because site visitors do not want to look at ads and yet websites like GD have to pay the server and developer bills somehow.

By supporting GD I will remove the ads around the site for you, while providing you with a Backstage discussion area in which you can add your voice to our development ideas.

I have tonnes of amazing new ideas still planned for us all here. I hope you are enjoying what GD is now and as excited as I am about what GD will become.

Hugs Felix

I have to disagree @DesktopElitist ;) willsmi is mention in the top charts above.
Those lists above are all the top players and significant members in the war, so anyone in any of them shows they were charging through the game with wonderful abandon. :D

Maybe we kind of forgot to help people with their hardware questions and such (or we just didn't have the brain as werewolf or vampyre :P), but no doubt we appreciated this, Felix! :)

Vampire hunter D was a good movie, the original at least, but he wasn't a vampire. He was a Dhampir iirc. Seems strange to have him represent the Vamps. I would have went with Alucard from Hellsing.


Fun event, even if I didn't participate all that much. Hopefully it makes a return appearance next year :)

Haha I was wondering if anyone would pick up on this. I loved Vampire hunter D and that is why I picked the picture. Or is it because I enjoyed hunting the vampires?

So it is like Panzer VI Tiger vs T-34/M4 Sherman. Once i heard a story about WW2. Russian soldiers capture a German tanker and ask him why did he lose. He says "One of our tanks could take out 6 of your tanks but you always had 7.". Those statistics reminded me that.
