14.10.2018 - So Many News!

In the last weeks I had much personal stuff to do, but today was reserved for Xu-Fu and was able to catch up with a lot of stuff! The list is longer than usual, hang tight ^^

1. Giveaway winner
Sadly Machiavelli never claimed his Cap’n Crackers, so I had to draw yet another winner. This time it goes to:

SeiriCerin#2343 as shown in this super cute image!
Please get back to me within 2 days to grab your loot code :-)

2. New addition to the team
Not exactly “new”, Jagûar has been around for a long time and worked very hard to get the entire Falcosaur strategy section up and filled with strategies! Strategy Curator is only a logical next step. Welcome to the team (again^^)!

3. Patch 8.1 Preparation
The next patch brings a new pet battle dungeon: Gnomeregan, as well as a new family achievement. Family Battler! Both sections are set up and can be filled with strategies already.

4. New alternatives sorting
A tiny change, but it will have some obvious effects. I made a tiny tweak to the sorting of alternatives.
Before:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Tags > Average Rating
Now:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Average Rating > Tags

Having tags overrule the rating had some weird effects, and with the rating and favourite system being used widely now, it makes more sense to swap this around. Sorry for any confusion this might cause now!

5. Hazelnutty’s videos
Long established in the pet battling world, Hazelnutty is putting out some awesome videos that I can only recommend.
Very recently she published a video with her best tips and tricks for BfA pet battling, including some very nice words about Xu-Fu!
It’s only appropriate to return the favour, so go watch the video and ideally her channel, it’s worth it for every pet battler:
Watch the video

6. More absence, oh no.
Last but not least I have another personal note. The last two weeks of October I will be almost entirely offline and there will not be much new coming from my side on Xu-Fu. That might stretch well into November - depending on how this “real life” thing works out. But I’m not gone for good and will continue working on the page once I’m back! Promise :-)



12.10.2018 - New winner Drawn!

It turns out that Pantonia already got the little Crackers and was kind enough to pass on, thank you very much for the honesty and friendliness!

That means I was able to draw a new winner from all submissions, aaaaand the lucky one is:

Machiavelli#2856 with his trusty Captain Snips!

Yarrrr! Congratultions, please check your messages to collect your prize :-)



08.10.2018 - Winners announced!

So many great entries! Way too hard to pick among the cool, cute and piratey pics, so a random roll made the decision for me. And the winners are:

Franky651 with Captain Nibs
Pantonia with Brightpaw


Congratulations!
I will message you here on Xu-Fu, please respond to the message within the next 48 hours (until Wednesday 10/10) or I will have to select a new winner.

And a big thank you to everyone for participating, as well as to Blizzard for sponsoring the codes :-)

23.09.2018 - A few updates!

Hey :)

Thanks everyone for reaching out about volunteer positions! Still looking, so if you're interested, give me a shout on Discord.

Meanwhile, I have a few news to share around Xu-Fu:

1. A warm (re-) Welcome to the first three volunteers: Nyari, Remte and Morazor!

Nyari will work mostly as News Writer and Content Creator for the German version of the page and I will help develop some better tools to make localized versions of the page easier to navigate.

Remte has always been very active in posting advice and finding errors on the page and will now be a Strategy Curator.

Morazor is the author of Magpie and as such the role Content Creator can't be more fitting!


2. You now have the option to include the strategy steps within rematch strings! It is on by default, but you have a slider right below the Rematch button to turn that off, if you wish.


3. A shout out to all strategy creators: I will remove the option to modify tags. Unfortunately, the tags system has been used very inconsistently, and sometimes even to push new strategies to the top by adding every positive tag available without them being true. In the future, more tags will be automated (especially the "Reliable" one), and only strategy curators will have access to tags. In that light, I will also remove all custom tags that have been added so far.
Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience because of this!
