The New Battledome: Screenshots!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on October 26, 2012, 7:05 pm NST

The Battledome Beta has begun! If you were lucky enough to get in, you will have received a Neomail from TNT stating so, along with a link to the new 'Dome.

Let me first start off by saying, screenshots do not do the new Battledome Beta justice. TNT has done a fantastic job of revamping such an old relic of the past. There is not a single drop of flash anywhere in the entire Battledome, and it runs solely on text, images and Javascript magic! Those with slower computers are going to love that.

Now, without further adieu, the good stuff! (Click on the images for full size!)

AAAAHHHHHH, So this is where all the awesome artwork was being made! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S SO COOOOOOOOOL!!!!!!!! OMG OMG I HOPE I GET A BETA TEST NM!
newyearsdude, October 26, 2012 7:26 PM NST
Error: Thanks for visiting Prof. Milton Clodbottle's Astounding Habitarium! The game is temporaily offline for maintenance.

hm? what's going on?
Stephen, October 26, 2012 7:27 PM NST
So, will training agility be important now?
kat, October 26, 2012 7:32 PM NST
looks amazing! well and truly overdue but good job guys
halloweenaddict, October 26, 2012 7:34 PM NST
terrie77, October 26, 2012 7:37 PM NST
Ya, looks like you can now get nps for winning, awesome
kgoh, October 26, 2012 7:40 PM NST
I can't wait to try out the new BD! And no flash is definitely a plus! 100 thumbs up.
pancaketime, October 26, 2012 7:41 PM NST
Excited! The "featured challenger" bit gives me hope that we might get frequent new 1-player challenges, and the phrasing of the "your wares can be admired in your inventory" seems to say that you can win NP or items.
terry - JN Staff, October 26, 2012 7:49 PM NST
That is absolutely amazing.
hyperknuckles77_tail, October 26, 2012 7:54 PM NST
That looks so AWESOME! :o A lot of work must have been put into this! Can't wait for its public release!!!
diana, October 26, 2012 8:05 PM NST
Ohmigosh, I have never cared that much about the BD, but that looks amazing! I can't wait for the release! *drags Flora to Training Academy*
tama70406, October 26, 2012 8:19 PM NST
Why is it that Dave has access to all 4 of his neopets? Whereas the other testers only have access to one (from what I've seen)
inuyashaohki, October 26, 2012 8:19 PM NST
No Flash to add to the plague of it that's spread for a decade now? I love it when I'm wrong.
suzuka - JN Staff, October 26, 2012 8:31 PM NST
Argh so upset I didn't get in
goldennightfox, October 26, 2012 9:01 PM NST
I have mixed feelings. Does having a reward system mean we can no longer play on sides?
catsrnice, October 26, 2012 9:34 PM NST
I think the yellow bar for the draws should be in between the green and red "lose and win" bars.
This came out sooner than I thought and am happy to hear theres no flash in it
agent_711, October 26, 2012 10:56 PM NST
No flash, new graphics, new challengers, and PRIZES?!

TNT, I must say that I'm simply amazed.

Too bad that I wasn't picked to test it.
silentspeedy, October 26, 2012 10:59 PM NST
Ahhh I wish I was picked to beta test! Looks amazing, well done TNT.
soccerboy13542, October 27, 2012 12:08 AM NST
I really hope the np reward is higher than 30 nps...
musicgirl59, October 27, 2012 12:11 AM NST
I have done the next mask quest! It's based in Moltara this time. The first place to go is the light shop, after that, it tells you which places to go. The prizes are :
Moltaran Charm
Fire Candyfloss
Interior Decorating with Rocks and Cogs
kingloui17, October 27, 2012 12:34 AM NST
grats? ^
hely, October 27, 2012 12:39 AM NST
Is it flash? oh my, my computer works really slowly I hope I won't have problems...
akitera, October 27, 2012 12:46 AM NST
Didn't get in for beta but hurray for the new BD It looks like scenes from a comic book but without the flash and i'm so excited to try my hand at the new challengers

Btw, isn't it "without further ado" instead of without further adieu"?
cat, October 27, 2012 12:55 AM NST
The new backgrounds look so pretty, I'm glad it's not flash. I wonder if NP is the only reward or whether there will be other things. Would be bad if it were junk, but it might be nice to be thrown a codestone or a stat increase every so often.
cat, October 27, 2012 1:16 AM NST
Actually, I wonder if the NP prize means we can't do battledome on our side accounts anymore. That could be inconvenient, I've been using my side account's lab ray scientist to give my pets gender changes when they need it.

Then again, I guess it's fine as long as I don't finish the fight, not like you'll get a reward for gender swapping and running (or getting the HP blasted out of you).
hannahcreep, October 27, 2012 1:40 AM NST
@cat I think it's only for beta testing and battledome won't have it in the open version.
furno14, October 27, 2012 2:14 AM NST
I give it a solid 10 out of 5 stars!
pancaketime, October 27, 2012 3:42 AM NST
I'm interested to see what happens with stances and abilities, since they seem not to be available yet in the beta (but it looks like the not-yet-opened Aethia's Ability Academy will address them).
boyob, October 27, 2012 4:12 AM NST
I am probably most excited that the different arenas actually have a cosmetic effect now. XD

And I'm pretty sure if you didn't get in now, TNT is still sending out NMs to small groups at a time.
biediep, October 27, 2012 5:11 AM NST
Eep, can't wait to get in! D: Hope I'll get into beta, and if not I hope it'll go live soon!
Does seem like movement will actually matter now, I hope not xD Meh, 178 movement is not that bad though! :3
queen_of_the_zafaras, October 27, 2012 6:05 AM NST
...Oh no.

Neopets may have me addicted all over again when this is finished.
cjrate99, October 27, 2012 6:25 AM NST
Cant wait for it to re open
ghettoscalibrator, October 27, 2012 8:19 AM NST

It looks like the thing I was hoping that wouldn't come to pass (item decay) didn't come to pass! yeehaw!
xlslayer, October 27, 2012 10:46 AM NST
No beta call for me either, it does look good though so i hope i get called later to have at it
renaki, October 27, 2012 12:52 PM NST
Whoa...this looks SO much better than the previous battledome! Can't wait for it to be open to the public so we can all use it!
warnerbroder, October 27, 2012 3:06 PM NST
Looks nice I can't wait to battle again
cloonshannagh, October 27, 2012 5:02 PM NST
Thank you for the great screenshots and the excellent information. *another happy no-flasher*
Now about those boosts...can hardly wait to find out if 700 is still the top. and Agility? Until I do, BBB gets all the cookie quests. Banna said he didn't mind just taking Training School classes *note to self..go earn more codestones*
shelbytheginger, October 27, 2012 11:13 PM NST
Yes!! These improvements are exactly what I thought they would be and I am suppppper excited to play
calays, October 28, 2012 3:50 AM NST
The pictures are nice and all, and the lack of Flash is more than welcome, but what makes me most excited is the potentially much better BD mechanics. I hope they find a use for Agility as well at last!
mslovelymuse, October 28, 2012 10:25 AM NST
OOOOh it's so amazing!
marmeladoff, October 28, 2012 10:33 AM NST
Excelent, TNT! Chapeau!
invader_of_worlds, October 28, 2012 2:14 PM NST
oh cant wait till this comes out.
jellyjosie, October 29, 2012 10:05 AM NST
looks awesome , and I love how your pet can be customized in full battle gear clothes as well , I was hoping you could dress you pet to reflect the battle.
cant wait to try it out.
silveraquila, October 29, 2012 5:14 PM NST
Is this a flash super hard to load program? I sure hope not, otherwise it could mark the end of my battling. I can't even load into a game of KQ. It'd hate for it to be too heavy a load for me to battle. My pet would be crushed. D:
noahkim1234567890, October 30, 2012 7:44 PM NST
Wait, so you can only equip two items?
No! All of my stuff is worthless ;.;
jellyjosie, October 30, 2012 11:52 PM NST
up above
Individual Neopet Stats

It shows you have 8 slots for equipped items.
spike, October 31, 2012 12:19 AM NST
aqwaneo, October 31, 2012 5:12 AM NST
Holy smokes, this looks... amazing! I'm a bit of a novice battledomer, but this might just motivate me to change that.
