Other Battlemaster Sites

Community Portal

The purpose of the Community Portal is to allow convenient access to the various sections of the BattleMaster wiki to assist users in creating new pages, editing older pages, and finding the desired information. On this page, you will find summarized links to the other various aspects of the community (FAQs, community resources, feature requests, who the community manager is etc.).

Approved

Feature Requests Tom has approved, but which have not yet been added to the game.

Implemented

Feature requests that have already been added to the game. After a decent amount of time, the old ones will be deleted from the list. You should be able to find an archive of everything at The TattleMaster. These might be be in testing or the code not updated to the game yet, but once here it should be in the code.

Development and Contests

We are currently refactoring the code to update and massively improve BattleMaster. Early details and an overview can be found on the War 2.0 page.

Part of our continued effort is that we run occasional Contests and Community Efforts where you can contribute to BattleMaster and have your work be used daily by over a thousand players.
