Previously, searching for "kata" would match "katana", but not "ruby katana".

Now, searching for "kata" matches both; the search now matches anywhere in words instead of just the beginning.

Also, first site update in 3+ years!

Previously, "freaked" builds (builds that include equipment you don't have the stats for) were treated as errors in the build calc and thus you could not get florum output for them. The errors in these builds are now being treated as warnings, so you now can get florum output for them. Thanks to Alan for the suggestion.

Yikes, my first update in a couple years. I'm almost surprised this place still functions, but functions it does. :)

Anyway, there's been a long-standing request to have the build calc support the new bots4 formula instead of the old bots2 one. This change has been made now.

A series of changes aimed at making the monthly energy race more lucrative for individual performers:
Instead of 100 trophies being awarded to energy scorers at the end of the month, there are now 1,000 trophies: 10 platinums, 90 golds, 150 silvers, and 750 bronzes.
The new trophies have been retroactively awarded, so if you got new award notifications, that's why.
The history page now includes individual results in addition to clan results.
Like clan profiles, player profiles now show your energy ranking in past months.
The default sort in the HoF is now monthly energy.

The energy offset stat has been replaced with energy ratio, which is defined as total energy gained divided energy regen'd.

Introducing the non-competitor (NC) rank for clans, meant to cater to social members:
Clans can now have an unlimited number of bots. NC bots do not count towards member cap of 20.
NC bots do not regen energy and cannot gain energy.
Demoting a bot to the NC rank sets its monthly energy to 0.
Every addtional 5 NC bots doubles the clan's daily tax.
Each addtional NC bot decreases the maximum days of tax that can be saved in your treasury by 1 day per NC bot, to a minimum of 7 days.
NC bots cannot contribute to the treasury.
NC bots do not receive monthly clan trophies.

A kudos bar has been added below the experience bar in the game HUD, showing your kudos as a fraction of the 5 million cap. Mouseover for the exact amount.

Players of the world! You can now specify a country in your profile which will cause a flag to show up next to your forum posts and bmails (and likely other places later on). Check out the useless stats section in the documentation for country popularity rankings too. You get a free bronze trophy for setting your country, so go forth and represent your nation.
