Epic Battle Fantasy 5: Battle Demo

Some bug fixes, and also dialogue and medals added. You’re probably gonna get sick of them soon, so there’s an option to disable those.
(A whole game’s worth of battle dialogue and medals are basically being triggered extra fast in this demo)

The version number should be 0.8. If it’s not, hit F5 or whatever you need to do to refresh it.
There’s a new “Effects” option that disables some text filters and may help performance a bit.

    there is a thing in the stats menu when i click matt a bunch and then this thing pops up and matt disappears and the comes back, was that intentional or not if it is what is it supposed to be or do

  2. Me Meow

    yea, im pretty sure that the ending screen has not sound. Probs not a bug, but I dunno. Just wanted to point it out.

  3. lancelot

    it would be cool to have a boss battle of the dead goku in this demo and you could catch him to be sumoned and Matt or Natalie say something to see him again :smirk: :smirk: :smirk:

    (Le insert original comment here) All jokes aside loving ebf5 from the ending to how high NoLegs’ evade stat can go, it just a treat to say the least, keep up the good work. :yay:

    Very late on this, but found this after a playing the game to look at the end game items cause I was curious.

    Of course the equipment I used in 4 aren’t there at all 😐

    This may or may not be a bug, but I encountered a squid and it just so happen to be farther from the spot it’s supposed to be on, so now I see the end of it’s tentacles πŸ˜›

  9. CatCandy

    I found a glitch. A Green Creep killed a Jet Fish with its attack that damages players and foes, and it gave me the Favorable Weather achievement. Could you please get this fixed? πŸ™

  10. Asphyxiation

    OMG playing this is almost impossible with all the glitch text all over. I have no idea what skill i am using so it takes a while to just find something suitable :scared:

    1. Heetagan

      i think its because of the weather the glitch weather it might be for a glitch boss like ebf4 :yay:

  15. Anyar

    Nice as always. Here’s some thoughts though.

    First, it’d be nice if enemy health was displayed as ##/## like in previous games instead of just ##. The health bar helps but a concrete number is great for reference.

    Text dialogs play a little slowly and clicking them to speed them up can get annoying, so it’d be great to have an option to either change the speed or enable instant loading like in previous games.

    The rotating switch icon on non-active players is awesome for convenience, but it can get a little strange if idle animations are completely off except for this tiny eyesore rotating around. Maybe make it more transparent and stop moving if idle animations are off for players. I do like that you disable it when I’m choosing an enemy target.

    Hope the screen that pops up when I flee doesn’t appear every time I retreat. That’d get on my nerves quick when I just want to jump in, scan, and run.

    Item drops are neat, but an auto collect feature (instant, not delayed) could also help. (I’m picking at a lot of minor annoyances here :P)

    Lastly, something sorta irrelevant.. it’d be nice if I could collapse the comments on this page. My scroll bar is tiny.

    Needless to say, great job. Item drops and captures all seem great, and new features are welcomed always. Go cats! :love:

  16. Checkhardmode

    WTF i tried to played a hard mode with foes scanned and i show instead a shield stop for defense, run without the man as running etc. pls check this

  17. Shadow_The_Worm

    Oh, it’s getting better. I am sorry if I took your idolizing way back on your server way too far. I hope you’ll make an online multiplayer game based on your series.

    when the weather is cherry blossoms it reads: everyone has a chance of occasionally getting an exta turn.
    kinda redundant isn’t it? ❓

  21. HamFantasy

    @Matt you could probably just put together this demo and make it into a simple EBF2 style Arcade game and people would go crazy over it XD
    Though we’d definitely prefer EBF5.
    Anyways the game is very nice, looking forward to seeing what it’s true form is. I will say that cooldowns are annoying in this type of game, though I guess they do stop you from just pounding something to death with the strongest move. Of course when something knocks out your buffs completely right after you use it this is VERY ANNOYING.

  22. CosmicMonolithIsOP

    Sometime they bring out dead player instead of living one, what is just weird

    Remember the Omega Lazor turret? I’d like it to become a bazooka for Lance, and that its Hyper beam be similar to the ultimate laser blast of the laser turret

    I try not to play the unfinished game,becasue I don’t want to reduce my excitemengt when I play for the first time,it’s so hard to remove my hand from mouse. :ooo:

  26. Origin of Creaation

    Can’t wait for the full release of EBF5, or even the beta. I’m practically dying of excitement! I’ve been a fan of the EBF series ever since i first stumbled upon it, and, after completing EBf1 through EBF4, been waiting for the next entry in the series. From the battle demo, i’m already hyped, just becasue NoLegs finally joins the crew in battle as an actual character, and not just a summon! He finally gets to join the action, which is just awesome! His fighting style is one that the series has been missing, i feel, especially with his basic attack being a backstab of sorts.

    I don’t know if anyone already reported this or not, but when I used the Ion Cannon Limit Break, I couldn’t help but notice a possible animation error. When it was charging up, one of the sparks was red instead of yellow. :wut: :wut:

  33. Joseph

    I noticed that Lance was saying text that he should’ve said when he was revived. He said (How did I lose to someone with such primitive melee attacks? Did I just stand too close to him while shooting?). It might be something to fix later, but its going along great for now! also i like bacon :bacon: :bacon: :bacon: :bacon:

      1. Solomon M

        That was actually referencing the 2nd game in the series- Lance was the final boss of the game before he joined the team.

    Matt, I found a glitch where NoLegs will be inflicted with the Doom status, and whenever NoLegs is in his idle position in the box, I see that whenever the countdown for the doom timer reaches 0, he just stays in the idle position as if he is still alive 😐 😐

  38. Idelac

    I think you should change NoLegs’s dialog. I mean, I know he doesn’t talk, but all he has are “actions” in *asterisks*. I assume putting his thoughts would make a good idea.

    https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/393425638658146315/443173601483685888/unknown.png The mammoth animation froze. Other animations kept going on and gone into idle properly, but the game didn’t go on to let me do an action. This attack was right after No-Leg’s which had the (correctly putted) *sparkled intendify* message. Also, it counts as a dodge (activating the message) every time the monolith uses this animation, like when siphoned exc. and the demo is too addicting with the dialog.

    On the weird messed up weather, I think it is supposed to only show the health of your player after your take your turn, but every time I change who’s turn it is or send someone to backup, it the health bars change. It’s kind of a pointless weather if you ca view your hidden health without even taking your turn (If that made any sense at all).

      (If on late-game abilities) cleance, encore and switch him down. Then take a turn or use viking monolith, cleance and remove halmet.

  52. Galaga

    Typo: Anna’s dialogue says “go home and be with you family, foe. You’re not cut out for this” Pretty sure “you” is supposed to be “your” in this case

  54. Corrinne Tallman

    I really enjoy how the mechanics of this game stayed true to the previous versions. The possibility of healing opponents by using their main attributes brings a certain level of strategizing with new monsters to the board. I can’t wait for EBF5!!! :love2:

  55. AdonisKun13

    I have a doubt if the game will be free or pay in steam.

    In the case that it is free add a dlc that must be purchased (which is all the content just in case if the game is paid in steam) that contains extra content at least, is that some of us get tired of always playing games (flash ), when that already happened of fashion.

    While it will be paid, at least you have the game (the free) is a program like another indie video game, etc., because as my previous comment, some people get tired of the games (flash), I also recommend that if the game (payment) will be in steam, the game (the free) is in game-jolt, since game-jolt is one of the sites with more indies game in the world and where there are more projects.

    That’s all I wanted to say.

    in case you want to answer me, here is my gmail adoniskun13@gmail.com

    1. Origin of Creaation

      I have been listening to Touhou music while playing EBF ever since the first Bullet Heaven.

  56. Unkn0wn

    people must told this already: you see those game modes on top of the options screen. well if pick late-game for players and early-game for enemies, you become seriously πŸ‘Ώ OP πŸ‘Ώ . to capture a weak foe you have hit on the head with natalie’s staff, then capture the foe. well at least what i seen.

    1. Unkn0wn

      i meant you wold be OP with equipment in the late-game setting, but not with the players’ level/skill equipment in early-game setting. so yeah i was wrong

  59. TheSlimeKing

    I think I found a bug: I was in a wave of 3 Snow Bats and 2 of the Gem Idols and I captured a Gem Idol. The Icon displayed when I captured it was the red Idol, and it remained that way, though in the battlefield it had shown up as blue. However, once I summoned it, it became the Blue Idol again. Is this a visual glitch, or is there only one display picture for the Gem Idols? ❓

  60. Spiritmon

    Fascinating. The animatimation of the abilities is awesome! And I love it the idea to make some moves like Ice Shard and Fireball abilities you evolve and make them single target or multitarget. This skips the need about updgrade two different abilities everytime. And to able to right away switch members of the team without using the strategy option? This economize time and make things more easily what is awesome. Also, I like the idea of cool down of the moves, since the make people more careful about what kind of move they should use instead of spam like craze and make a more strategic in some battles. That was a great touch and detail. And the option to capture foes? *Clap* *Clap* *Clap* That what I more love about that. As someone who like very much pokemon and other medias who use the capture system, that idea of capture some foes and make your summons its what make me more hype for this game. With no doubt EB5 will be the best EB5 game ever made. :love2: :love: :love: :love2:

  61. Pianos

    This is just a suggestion, you don’t need to take it.
    But what if you made switching out players a two-click process instead of three-click? Instead of selecting the person that will move into backup after clicking “Bring in NoLegs” (or whoever you bring in), it would just move back the person that you currently are.
    I say this since you can already switch which character you are in just one click, and that having to choose after bringing someone back feels a bit redundant, and might make things move quicker.
    Just my two cents. Awesome development, Matt, and I look forward to the release!

    1. Pianos

      This would also make Stun more of a challenge, as in the previous game you were able to simply move back a character that was stunned.

      1. Pianos

        Or maybe even just clicking on the characters’ names in the HP menu corner to switch them out that much more smoothly.

    It appears as though Matt can be healed by the voodoo doll during counter-attacks, but not when the doll is attacked with an attack that would normally heal it.

    1. Vigorswig

      Matt may have used an elemental attack like Cataclysm (for example), and he probably absorbed the reflected damage because he had 100%+ Earth resistance. :hurray:

  67. Norb

    This is just the demo and I’m already addicted…!

    Found those bugs:
    – The slime bunny hat cast purify on a dead team member
    – NoLegs was frozen and I hit the NoLegs Vodoo Doll with fire damage. NoLegs received vodoo damage, but did not unfreeze.

  70. Tanaka

    Can’t wait for EBF5 to be finished. :hurray: I gotta finish 3 and 4 first. And if you’re wondering about 1 and 2, they’re just battles, and aren’t really related to a story, but 3 begins the story, and 4 is after 3. So since Anna’s in this battle demo, I’m guessing she’s in 5, and that it’s a continuation of 4. ^^this battle demo rocks by the way^^ Yes, 1 and 2 are “just battles,” all you do in them is fight enemies and I never made it past 2. πŸ™ :scared: :skull: 3 and 4 have entire backstories to them. I really like the newer enemies I saw, including the icecream slimes and slime bunnies, those WERE JUST SO CUTE :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay:

    1. Tanaka

      And I found a bug/error/just there thing, I equipped Natalie with Paper fan (or Celtic Cross, or Obsidian Staff) and then Holly Hairpin, and Pope/Pope’s dress. The three flairs were Pocket Watch, Silver Cross? and the Black cross (don’t remember), She (I think) had a 200% resistance to Curse & Bad Luck (I’ve been doing all Late-game settings lately, and putting the difficulty on Zero). The resistance was 200%, but she got Bad Luck status, she didn’t smash a mirror or anything, but the Weather was Cursed Land. I think it might have been because of the Weather, even though her resistance was 200%. This also happened to Matt, but he didn’t have Bad Luck resistance equipment on, and did not get Bad Luck for awhile. (He did smash 2 mirrors) Anna also didn’t have Bad Luck resistance equipment on, and didn’t get Bad Luck for awhile. I’m mostly confused about Natalie and the 200% Resistance, but she was still given the status, I remember a character from EBF4 saying 100% to a status resistance means it will never work, but what about 200%? πŸ™

  71. RedSabere

    The best strategy (Works with all amounts of players, even 1) is to have someone with either high evade and decent defenses *Cough* NoLegs *Cough* or someone with amazing defenses and high HP, evade doesn’t matter there *Cough* Matt *Cough*, and give them gear that gives all sorts of buffs for when they use defend, like 80% extra Defense and Magic Defense, or invisible status, or lovable status, but definitely Regeneration. A necessary badge for this is the badge that gives haste occasionally, so that you can move after defending in order to attack. On epic mode at wave 46, I just took 78 damage from a total of 4 enemies with this strategy, in one turn. 78 overall. Not 78 per hit or 78 per enemy, but 78 overall. And I regenerated 4000 HP.

  73. Antinomy

    Small bug: if everyone died, the screen flash red as if it is a gameover even if auto-revive is still there to get the party back up.

    Bug or intended? Blessed does not prevent Shroud. (but seriously, what’s the point of Shroud effect…)

    Bug or intended? Some enemy instantly flee without surrendering first. Very noticeable if you use the party loveable buff.

    Feature missing? The players’ and enemies’ info screens still does not show resistant to a number of status effect, such as berserk or surrender.

    I know that this is not really balanced yet, but I just want to add some thought about potentially broken combo:

    – Anna wearing Ninja skirt+4 leaf clover+target badge+Navi. Turn her into the team’s tank, since she attract all single target damage, dodged a lot of magic attack, can’t be dispelled, immune to physical damage, and if she died there is always auto-revive. I literally survive 1 wave of dragons with just Anna alive while waiting for the weather to kill off the enemy.

    – Natalie wielding knife+santa+the good luck flair. Surprise present+good luck on Natalie and she have very high chance of Tonberrying even high-death-resistent enemy.

    1. Konnor

      Blue Elephant, and Natalie’s default red dress are better with the knife, because of the upped chance to do status effects, and death is considered a status effect, sooo… 😐

    2. James

      Some Enemies flee when using the party lovable buff because those enemies have only single-target attacks. When your whole party has lovable, they cannot do anything and thus flee.

    3. Vigorswig

      The auto-revive red screen flash is meant to scare the player into thinking they failed the game as stated by Matt himself. Shroud is just meant to add some difficulty to certain fights and can be removed by the Reflex skill. Shroud also can be easily ignored my focusing on the new party member low HP faces and menu icons. Most enemies flee when the whole party has Lovable status or certain equips like Celtic Cross (Ghost enemies), Matt’s Slime Fork (Slimes), and Matt’s Tree Sawblade (Plant Foes). (except bosses and other certain enemies.). Berserk, Surrender, and other statuses like Morale, Regenerate, and Auto Revive cannot be resisted. Can you imagine how annoying it would be if positive statuses like Brave, Blessed, and Good Luck could be resisted by your party members? Hope I cleared up a few things for ya! :yay:

    This is awesome ❗
    I would’ve completed EBF4 but my progress got wiped… πŸ˜₯ but now I can play through the battles with new enemies, equipment(i think), mechanics, and i won’t have to have to go to a certain place to battle certain enemies ❗ :yay:

    i liked the desings of everyting, it was so epic to battle in the pre game
    epic dificulty atleast i died at this game cause on the others it wasnt that hard (except bosses)
    all is so well made that it feels that im not playing an ordinary “flash game” :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay:

    the demo works great. experience these will help playing the main game easier. btw, anyone know what is the soundtrack that’s used throughout the demo?

  84. Weetbred

    I captured a haunted mirror and it showed up in the random chances between turn and its mirror panel was still broken

    Honestly I never knew this game would’ve come out untill I actually gone to kupo games :stars: Its amazing I really hope that you would continue and I would continue making these comments πŸ˜€

  86. Konnor

    Found a bug when you use Lance’s Oblivion ability. If you have him with the full astronaut suit equipped, for some reason his astronaut suit pants will turn to the original red and white instead of Lance’s normal black and yellow outfit. Also, he randomly gets a cat tail that’s visible while using it. I don’t really understand why that happens, but I didn’t have the cat tail equipped on Lance. I am not that weird. 😐

  87. Konnor

    NoLegs’ Evade can be kind of broken sometimes if you give him the cat tail and the ninja gear. I’m not sure if this is intentional or not, though.

    Nolegs is still MVP. :smirk:

  88. Zeo3434

    the game asks me to take a ASAP screenshot but I do not know what it is, and I do not know how to send it to Matt because I never wondered how to join it. although he gives an address in the tab ABOUT / FAQ, I have never seen any like that and so I do not know how to use it.and we can not attach images here I think.well, so I Send him how? by the way I’m not English and I use google translation, I know from experience that it translates as a shit so I apologize for pierce your eyes XD.
    Well, well, well, I’m really useless … hold, my comment in french, in case you have a better translator:
    le jeu me demande de prendre une capture d’Γ©cran ASAP mais je ne sais pas ce que c’est ,et je ne sais pas comment l’envoyer a Matt ,car je ne me suis jamais demander comment le joindre. bien que il donne une adresse dans l’onglet ABOUT/FAQ ,je n’en est jamais vu des comme ca et donc je sais pas comment l’utiliser.et on peu pas joindre des image ici je pense.bien,du coup je lui envoie comment ? au passage je suis pas anglais et j’utilise google traduction,je sais d’expΓ©rience qu’il traduit comme une merde donc je m’excuse de vous crever les yeux.
    bien,bien,bien,je suis vraiment inutile…tenez,mon commentaire en francais,au cas ou vous aurez un meilleure traducteur:

    When a player dies in backup, you should use revivals or something, but in order to do that, you have to put them in front. REALLY?!?
    At least it would be nicer if you can use coffee or any other item and just click on their icon, would be a hella lot better. 😐

  90. Norb

    Just found a tiny bug: I froze pearl golem as the last action on my turn (frozen for 1 turn). Then the “Fat Fly” attacked pearl golem and thereby unfroze him. However, pearl golem skipped his turn anyways, as if he had been still frozen. The only other status effect he had was “light”

  91. Anonymous (not rlly)

    Yeah finally an epic battle fantasy 5 battle demo, btw could you change the zombie’s hand action? Like he makes a magic which some of his actions……showing a middle finger lol :scared: could you another action? :smirk:

    Lance lived through a nuke and the game threw an error. Everyone else died. Lance is in the 3rd slot and has Crystal Wing, Headband, Priest’s Tunic, Cat Tail, Balance Badge and Big Eyebrows equipped.

    Hi, I chilled an enemy and made him wet, but instead of freezing, the enemy was just wet and chilled at the same time. Is freezing only supposed to happen if you first wet and then chill the enemy?

  95. Norb

    Hi, this might be a bug: When fighting the wise mirror (which reflects damage) the damage is not reflected upon the character that hit the mirror, but always on Anna (who is in the bottom row in my case).

  96. Normac

    Sorry this is late but could you please, please, please add a Whip weapon for Matt to go with his explorer’s outfit? Thanks

  97. Norb

    In a debuff like “-Defense” the minus sign is almost invisible. I would put a space in between the sign and the word or make the sign longer.

  98. Will

    So. I caught the kitten summon that gives cherry blossom weather. I used him and now all of my characters have 2 turns without having the haste effect. I reccomend you fix this. :yay:

  99. Az0riusG4mer

    Matt, Anna, and Lance were active. The enemy wave was 3 blood bats (front) and 2 marble boulders (back). One of the boulders killed Anna with “Attack 4”, I think? Then an error occurred somehow, with this following the message:
    ReferenceError: Error #1065
    at Target/takeHit()
    at foes::BoulderMarble/boulderBowl2()
    at BoulderBowl/frame24()
    I’m posting this bug report here because I was having trouble with Discord at time of posting. As such I could not send my screenshot here. πŸ™

    I think Lance’s Hyper Beam might be more viable now, at least a bit. I say this because giving Lance “Haste” status, via Encore or the Viking Monolith (?) allows him to charge and use it Hyper Beam on the same turn! Upshot is, Viking Monolith costs SP and Encore has a cooldown. Still can fit in a few more uses of Hyper Beam in longer battles! NOTE: this is my opinion; as such, it may be changed or disagreed on!

    1. Az0riusG4mer

      I personally agree about damaging summons being underpowered in lategame. My proof: I was EXP farming the Zombie Hydra on Easy on the third playthrough, to get everyone to level 51 for “30 Million Damage”. I summoned the Red Dragon a few times, which is normally a good summon against the Hydra; however, the damage in terms of health percentage was rather pitiful compared to the standard/first playthrough. Probably the only summons that are even moderately useful in damage dealt by this point are the Protector and Cosmic Monolith, and only if they hit enemy weaknesses.

  100. Bunny

    I noticed that when matt moves from his place, his buffs/de-buffs like float a lil’ bit to the side
    It could be just my laptop tho


    On capture:
    I personally would like to see a 100% capture rate on, say, 10% or lower health foes. I’m not a big fan of chance. Since you can bring it down to 10% health, you can definitely kill it, so capture won’t be used as some kind of high damage execution that really affects the battle. Or even more handicaps to the guaranteed capture can be added to balance it, such as things like requiring all three characters to use capture foe on the same turn and such. ELIMINATE ANY AND ALL CHANCE!(and potential grindfest)!!
    Also, since you need capture foes for some forging , and you oneshot low level foes, I wonder how you’ll be able to go back and capture them if you missed some. Giving “capture foe” a tiny bit of damage and guaranteed capture if the “capture foe” kills the target?


    Debuffs: a “15% defence debuff” on matt by coral boulder results in -15% defence regardless of previous defense buff/debuff. e.g. when at 80% buff, applying the 15% debuff results in -15%. When already at -15%, another debuff applied still results in -15%. The +80% buff also results in 80% regardless of current state. Temper also always end up with your attack at +70%. Works fine with curse/tired tho, those actually decreases your stat by 5% per turn instead of hard locking your debuff at -5%.

    Everything below, suggestions or otherwise, is made by someone who enjoys powering through epic difficulty on as little time wasted on leveling as I can manage, though mostly I’m worried about balance and transparency.
    Multi hit skills hit for less damage than one hit skills. A bit like EBF3, in which matt’s legend was a joke.
    A capture rate indicator would be nice, or at least a quantifiable guide instead of “higher chance at low health”
    The power of summons…what is the base number based on? “Depending on level” is a bit vague. In EBF4 at lategame (level 20+) basically only the buff/debuff/status ones are useful, what with the low damage of any summon when you can minmax your damage/heal with equips, elements, and status effects even when mostly focused on defensive stats with your equips. I suggest the summons using the higher of the magic attack and attack stat of either the caster or average over your team as the base power multiplier. Or just something like “8+3*(average player level)+0.3*(average player level)^2” kind of nerdy equations, but definitely not whatever it was in EBF4, which felt suspiciously like a linear growth.
    I LOVE the cooldown based skill. MP always feels like a redundant resource in most RPGs. Only RPG that managed it well imo is a mid battle regen based one where you have no MP restoration items (works like cooldown that way). And now EBF5 by ditching it altogether lol.
    Heal % health items FTW.
    Enemy flee/surrender chance in tooltip of equips would be nice, and I’d like to know if (and how) they stack. Giant Slayer+Pumpkin Head+Angry Faic sounds like a really good combo.
    Poison/burn/virus damage? Based on % of max health/inflicting hit damage/target level?

  104. Diego

    I loved it, but I think it has too many doom and death skills, also bring back the debuffs from powerful abilities like “Legend” and “Unload” that way the game will be balanced, the rest of the demo was dope tho :yay: :love:

    Oh yeah also besides that, the demo was so much fun! I absolutely loved playing it and I just wanna say keep p the good work! Epic Battle Fantasy is amazing and I can’t wait to see what you put out as the final product for the game. So hyped! :stars: :love2: :yay: :coffee: :bacon: :phone2:

  108. Treesus

    `This looks so cool! But the only real question I have is why get rid of MP? I mean I get players now have to be more strategic with their skills, but then when you work extremely hard to get that one skill that has good damage or hits every enemy, no matter what you do every skill can only be used a certain amount of times. Idk I’m not a game developer, I hope to be but still, that’s the only real downside to this game I see.

    No hate tho, love your games Matt! :yay:

    Reply to this comment anyone who somewhat agrees with me :3 :love: :bacon: :bacon:


      MP without cooldown=item dependent limiter that can worked around with money, and occasionaly strategy since it takes a turn to eat a muffin.
      Cooldown without MP=turn dependent limiter that can be worked around mostly with strategy.
      If you’re worryied about balance, you’re probably playing in epic difficulty, and most probably like the challenge instead of the grindy grinderson’s grindtacular grindfest. If not, the game’s easy enough either way.
      As someone who is always low on money (mass coffee/milk is expensive!), I know which one I prefer.

  109. QUikry_JAy

    Hey! When EBF5 is finished, can this demo still stay on the website? i like this whole idea of, survive infinite waves, and make yourself as OP or as underleveled as possible, and its genuinly fun to go through these infiinite levels like this, id love for this to stay on the site! :yay: :yay: :yay:

  110. 1Laika

    This is actually fantastic. Every LITTLE problem that any/every EBF5 game had has basically been fixed here. Like almost everyone, I was skeptical about the art style, but literally, EVERYTHING makes up for it. I don’t know, I’m not the type of guy that gives criticism or “hates” things too much. Also.. “Natalie’s Limit Break” :love: :love: :love:

  111. CyberBurger

    The EBF battle system has always a cut above the rest. I especially love how much higher difficulties revolve around the use of status effects and buffs/debuffs instead of just having the player use their strongest attack repeatedly. It adds another layer to what otherwise could have been just another turn-based RPG the throw onto the pile. Adjustments such as the addition of focusing certain attacks or spreading them among foes is a nice touch, as are skill cooldowns, and the addition of NoLegs as a playable character is comedic while still adding further depth, variety, and fun to the game. Although it has literally no effect on the gameplay, it annoys me more than it should that “Lazor Blade” isn’t an alliteration when all of Matt’s other elemental attacks are. Perhaps you could change “Surging Skewer” to “Bubbling Blade” instead and replace “Lazor Blade” with “Schocking Skewer”? In fact, “Surging Skewer” could work for an electric attack as is (think power surge), and could even be “Surging Sword”, becoming even more of an alliteration that way. “Shocking Sword” rolls off the tongue nicely as well. Anyway that was me nitpicking about phonetics, amazing job as always. This demo has me :love: :love: :love:

  114. MashMash

    I’m super hyped for the game but I’m not suuuper into the whole pokemon thing that you got going on with the summons. The EB4 summons were GREAT! But i get why you’re doing it.

  115. Jenkins

    I think it would be cool to have more than 1 battle music (eg the player can choose or the music depends on area). The actual isn’t bad or sth, but i remember how annoying it was in ebf4 after playing 1h+ to listen in every battle the same music, wich additionally sounded at every point quite similar. Also i didn’t really wanted to mute it cus that made the battles a bit boring (or better: less funny).
    Great work btw

  116. XAngelMoonX

    Anna’s Bow Whack is very good for catching foes, as it makes them surrender, even the big ones like Cosmic Monoliths and Dragons. (Surrendering foes will always be caught)

  117. XAngelMoonX

    wait….Wait….WAIT!!! THIS BATTLE MUSIC IS A REMIX OF “Traverse the Woods” from EBF2!!! OMG I just noticed it when listening to the EBF2 soundtrack! Im nerding out right now. Matt you sneaky son of a Mage Dog. :stars:

  118. Zhuge Lian

    I see that someone got tired of having to draw everything a second time for the Kyun pose… On a related note, I’m not certain that 7th Heaven should really show her cleavage when “Cleavage” is turned off; it’s less suggestive than when it’s turned on, but it certainly still has cleavage.

    I doubt that you are really going to care about suggestions this far in, but can you make it so that healing on the map is just instantaneous? In the other games, it was just a waste of time, essentially, especially if you didn’t know that saving and reloading would do it instantly (at least in 4, I’m not certain about 3). You could use items, but why bother when just waiting a few seconds would accomplish the same thing?

    Anyway, very nice; I really like the cooldown system, and a lot of the other new stuff.

    1. Matt Roszak Post author

      The healing takes a moment to encourage you to take a short break between battles and upgrade stuff!

  119. Luna

    How to get max stat characters (without buffs or balance badge)

    Max Attack Matt: Giant slayer, Death mask, Viking fur, Sword medal, Battle paint (1085 total attack stat)

    Max magic damage lance: Green goliath, Necromancer’s helmet, wizard robe, gold star, hoop earings (1004 total magic damage stat)

    Max evade nolegs: Neon lightbulb, headband, ninja gear, cat tail (432 total evade stat)

    Max accuracy anna: Eagle eye, cat ears, ninja skirt, target badge, mini drone (341 total accuracy stat)

    Max healing Natz: slime staff/ oak staff/ knife / , nurse hat, nurse outfit (MEGA HEALING)

  120. Luna

    Bug: When Lance uses his limit break “Oblivion” he appears to have the “Cat Tail” badge equipped during the animation, even if it is not equipped on him.

    Bug: When Lance uses his limit break “Oblivion” while wearing any armor that changes colour, the colour of the leggings will be changed to its default colour.

    Bug: When using skills such as “Fire spin” that can be used by multiple characters, the cooldown will be active on all the characters who have that skill.

    Bug: Nolegs’s skill “Nine Lives” states that the attack type is Physical, however it is not.

    Bug: Nolegs’s skill “Star blast” sometimes takes 11 turns before it can be used again, instead of 10 turns.

    Bug: Nolegs’s skill “Sushi cat” will never target frozen allies, even if they have the lowest hp.

    I hope this helps a little bit, I wish I could attach screenshots but for some reason they don’t work for me.
    Keep up the good work! :yay:

    one question
    ➑ will this game will be playable for free in websites or armor games kongregate… like the other ebf games?
    im BIG fan of ebf.. 5 years…, all tipes of dificulty in each one . i am very hyped for this :yay:

  123. Irae

    Nice work so far!
    Liking the cooldown system and the increase in # of status effects, it adds more depth to the battles here(on top of what you’ve already done with previous four games :stars: ). Just a couple things I noticed –
    Menu states the weather is random, however it doesn’t seem to ever change except when a skill forces it to? eg. I just finished doing easy difficulty / player level mid = Lava Flow every time, then same with player level = high and got falling ash every time. Or am I typing too soon and the rest only appear on higher difficulty settings?

    NoLegs’ Wind attack causes Weaken and his Holy causes Syphon…basically they are switched, compared to what other attacks of these elements normally inflict; not sure if this is intentional?

    “Lazor Blade”..looks like you typo’d “Laser”.

  124. Renickck

    You should remove the cooldown system in some abilities like the healing ones. It would be a probllem if your hp is low, you cannot heal and the enemy kills you :bleh:

    1. Luna

      One of the main reasons why cooldowns would help balance the game out is due to revive spam and healmore spam, you could simply keep reviving a character each round and this made most bosses WAY easier.

    When i equiped the Paper fan weapon on Natalie and when i used the divine judgement skill, the paper fan was floating and Natalie wasnt holding it. Was it supposed to happen like that ❓

  127. Alistair

    So I have a few questions.
    1. Will you leave this demo up once the game is published? I really like prototypes and demo type things, so that’s why I ask.
    and 2. Are the equips final? Like they will appear in the game? I like the way they all look.

  128. SirJimbob


    I’m very hyped for the awaited release of EBF5. I particularly love the summoning and ‘enslaving’ features that were implemented. I bet you a cleavage worth of money that, there will be a couple of individuals who will create a stupid challenge of ‘enslaving’ every single creature in the game. (‘enslaveable’ that is)

    My main concern goes to the ‘plot’ or the ‘story’ of the game. For example, in EBF3, the gang was driven to slay Akron. In EBF4, it was the Godcats. To me, the ‘plot’ adds a whole world to the game. I would rant some more, but, I’m simply too motivated to do nothing right now.

  129. Vik

    I do think that an option to make the game speed faster would be a good idea like the 1x, 2x,3x speed thing, it would make the game much more customisable, and people could have the game run on the speed that suits them best, if they want to enjoy every second have ti on normal speed, if they want faster battles they have the option to get double speed. Besides that, looookin fiiiiiinee :hurray:

  130. ChaosSorceror_Davidicus

    The Demo is fast becoming a PT situation. Basically a game in its own right. You basically recreated EBF2 with more characters, equipment, skills, summons, and monsters.

  131. simpletonne

    Hey matt, as a suggestion, if the bombs have the heavy status on launch, they’ll fall back down onto the foes. EBF5 hype as always! :yay:

  132. Ivan

    A part of me wishes that Matt had the budget to make this an AAA game, but in my heart i know that then the game would lose its unique charm and personality. :yay:

  139. Nguyen Dinh Trong CHuan

    I tried 5 days capturing 1 single dragon but it keep dieing out of the auto-attack but If I let the health higher than 6000 the chance of suceed is like 0.000001%

  140. Tyler Hosey

    I really have loved what youve done with this so far. Nolegs encore ability is a neat idea, so we can utilize using team members that are more useful than ones that lack needed element abilities, or maybe just an extra turn of healing with natz. I also liked the idea with the mirror enemy, the bad luck affliction was a neat touch. Overall, I really like all of the skills that nolegs has, and the fact hes more than a support character this time around. I also think the surrender option is a neat touch. Im guessing low health will affect their likelihood of doing so. In any case, this was awesome and I cant wait to see what you do next.

    Equipping the Wrecking rod, Robot Ears, Mecha Suit, Bandage, Lucky Clover, and Cat Tail on Natalie gives an Electric Resistance of -11% , not -10% :wut: .
    I should mention the configuration I used before going in is: 5 players, scan on, end-game equip and spells, normal difficulty.
    I wish I could give more debug info via screen shot, but i don’t know how with the laptop i’m using πŸ˜₯ .
    However this may mean a re-code on how resistances are calculated / a more secure code.

  143. Jacob Landback

    Personally i’m a fan of how to get summons in this, lower health and catch. Kind of a throw back to EBF1 with Mareep and Pichu :smirk: . an indication on what could be caught via item you get later in the game would be a great opportunity for added game-play :stars: . Just thinking of that alone gets me hyped :hurray:

    I’m curious whether you have tested it, but what happens if Def or M.Def is equal to 0? I managed to raise it by 100% with the new Guardian skill and buff++ equips, and there are some enemies that reverse buffs. Would the game crash since the damage is divided by Def or would it be infinite?

  145. SimpleDude

    I found an EXTREMELY annoying bug here

    A multiple hit attack (like Legend, Tank Gun, or Blade Blitz) seem to have it’s damage increasing every hit. The annoying thing is, the damage displayed on screen isn’t right. Example, Legend dealt 40k at the final hit, but the foe health is decreased very slightly (About 4k only at the last hit). Fix it, and I’ll be happy :love: :love2:

  146. Mirion

    Looks really well so far, got to 20th wave on Late-game/ epic setting, but then a LV 36 Cosmic Monolith ownt me. Since I managed to blast through 20 waves with enemies growing on level from time to time, I suppose I can say balance isn’t a problem, the game is just right when it comes to challenge. Now some game mechanics stuff:

    -foes’ debuff resist seems to substract from the ammount a debuff decrements said stat. Example, debilitate reduces Defence by 50% and the enemy has 50% resist to DefenceDown, in that case it just won’t work, ever. If the foe is 20% resistant, its Defence will go down by 30%. I kinda like this change, in EBF4 the chance based protection made some fights way too random and unpredictable, it sucked big time (looking at your, Dark Players…)
    -while we’re there, equips that strengthen debuffs absolutely kick ass, definitely going to rock them when the game launches
    -buff strengthening equips aren’t too shabby either
    -buffs/debuffs override each other, so if one of your characters has no buff and another one has 90% Defence buff and both get hit by attack that reduces Defence by 5%, they both end up with 5% debuff…not sure if that’s how it’s supposed to be and not sure if I like it
    -didn’t bother with summons too much, but in general it seems fine. Though I think some enemies are too hard to catch, the chance is so damn low even with equips that boost the chance…maybe add some usables a la Master Ball to help catch the tougher beasts
    -don’t know if you are planning on adding stat boosts again. It sure was fun to grind stats, but leaving three out of five chars to deal pitiful damage isn’t, and spreading Ham and Cake in EBF4 was inefficient. Maybe add a limit to stat boost or apply diminishing returns so it makes sense to spread the boosts.
    -Legend still sucks (not as hard as in EBF3, but it’s weaker than it was in EBF4), come on, it looks so cool and yet it is almost always better to use elemental skills (especially since Matt has 100% elemental attacks now)
    -Matt’s Cleaver seems nerfed quite harshly. I debuffed a Golem’s Defence by 60% and even with 70% attack buff it didn’t kill him…come on, in EBF4 Cleaver could take more than half HP of some bosses.
    -other than that, the Limit Breaks are OK
    -will weather change during fights? Certain weather types have crazy strong impact on battke, for example perma Bless for everyone. Would be weird to rely so much on weather.
    Other stuff:
    -I don’t really like the new tank and 7th heaven replacing Kyun. They ain’t bad but why fix something that isn’t broken? Valkyrie was so badasd, and Kyun is iconic.
    -this is actually me nitpicking, but oh well. Not fond of so many new skill names and animations, the previous games borrowed and recycled a lot in beetwen installments. It gave them some unexplainable sense of integrity (or hearing the Golem’s theme from EBF2 in EBF3…felt so great back when I first played). It’s nothing major, it’s just that some of the original feel is gone, but hey we have to move on.
    -NoLegs is a great addition, I can see his super high Evade tanking overleveled bosses. Other than that, his skills are both useful and fitting, nice job there
    -that battle song is a really nice remix from EBF2
    -as an old MapleStory fan, it’s good to see the Berzerker making a return

    1. James

      There are now specific stat boosting items for each player that can only be given to that player

  147. 69kokoro

    How many waves have this? I’m in the 7th one :’v
    By the way, i like the idea of capturing foes, in that way i can have them all :3, and the foes are great and some are cute, i always wanted to control NoLegs :’3 i’m so happy
    :yay: :stars: :smirk:

  148. honk

    hey matt wierd guestion but will you let people mod the game im not one myself and if you do they ask permission because without permission that would be bad ❓

  149. dunvir

    I played adventure story for a bit but never finished it and i was wondering what the story there really was? Can you maybe make a shout out to that really old game and maybe explain what was really happening there. :wut:

  150. Lenike02

    I found a bug connected to their face on low hp, for example when Natalie has low hp, and she uses Healmore while she close her eyes, her face return normal. I hope you get it, im not good at English…

  151. blah

    Its really good but Natalie’s attatck is… kinda too much like… you know what i mean because kids are playing this game but anyway it looks very good :stars:

  152. wolfboy123

    is there going to be a new character if so make it a boy :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay:

  153. GTXv17

    The game said that there’s an error in #1502
    at BattleStage/checkBusy()
    at EpicBattleFantasy5_9_fla::MainTimeline/enterFrameHandler()

    P.S sorry if this has some mistake, this was what the game said

  154. Mad Parrot

    First of all, congratulations! I think your graphic dessign is one of the bests and friendliers to players in all the market, incluiding both indie & not indie developers. I bought EBF4 a year ago & I still play it from time to time, for it offers so many variations.

    Also the art looks hugely improved in EBF5, even when your previous games were frankly well designed. Cheers for that too.

    Regarding bugs, I found impossible to catch a lvl 5 Topaz Golem with 17/941 HP (that’s only 1,8%!), even using luck and debuffing it & causing it negative conditions. I tried for almost 30 minutes. Am I ridiculously unlucky, or is it normal within your criteria for catching foes?

    (Also, if you need help translating the game, I am a native spanish speaker, but I think you already have your working team)

    1. Matt Roszak Post author

      Topaz Golem might be broken, several people have had trouble with that one.

  155. ebf-fan

    coldowns… going to make the game really hard… especially when fighting like three dragons with all the same element… your going to need hit-alls alot and then on top of mp insufficiency its gonna have cooldowns….

  156. No-name

    I noticed that if the enemy has 50% resistance to debuff (like, the ones reducing stats) it’s (nearly) impossible to inflict that debuff on them. I tried to debuff War Mammooth’s attack more than 10 times and it didn’t work a single time.

  157. Kihahapuri

    Ready capture or easy captured foes only marked by small box icon in right of his name (Such as Icecream Slime :tongue: :tongue: )

    [BUG] After using Lance’s Ion cannon, I waited a turn to use hyper beam, and even though I still had a turn of charge left, Lance charged again rather than fire Hyper Beam

  159. Gabriel

    Well, found some error once the Sandstone Boulder throws a rock at NoLegs the battle somewhat stopped :c

  160. Natz98

    The demo is so fucking good, I legit cant wait to play this game. . Really appreciate the work though, its cute!!

  161. Ken

    Matt, i still wonder what the crossed part below the skills part of each character is ??/
    Is it for special skills like the ones in EBF 3? :wut: :wut: :wut: :wut:

  162. AJking101

    The Viking Monolith should have a higher catch rate. I had the Viking Monolith at 28 hp, I equipped no legs with full explorer armor as well as the flair that boosts catch rate, and he had the status good luck. Couldn’t catch the monolith even after 45 mins.

  163. Kachopper9

    I didn’t realize that MP was swapped out for cooldowns 😐

    …eh, I’ll probably still play it+

    1. Luna

      I think the replacement of mp for cooldowns was a good choice on Matt’s part, It stops revive spam being used against bosses.
      But yeah, I see where you’re coming from πŸ˜›

  164. Santiago5500

    Hmmm I don’t know if it’s a bug or I just don’t know how to do it but…
    If you catch LOTS but really LOTS of monsters (Actually 12) 😐
    You can’t use new caughts :scared:

    (Pokemon fan + Sunny weather= Gotta catch ’em all)

    So… I don’t know if that limit is on purpose (if i only can catch 12 monsters i will be out of space before the second city :skull: ) or you can chose your 18 summons in an off-battle menu
    or there is a way to scroll i didn’t realize
    or just a little bug

    whatever it is i would be glad to know your answer :wut:
    Thank you :yay:
    Bye :smirk:

    1. Santiago5500

      It refreshed ❗
      The game refreshed when i posted the comment ❗
      well there went the caughts :bleh:
      bye πŸ˜₯

  165. Idelac

    We know what the classes of Matt, Natalie, Lance, and Anna are. But one thing’s missing: What’s NoLegs’ class? (Does his class change depending on his weapon?)

    1. Luna

      So far I think nolegs is going to be more of a support character. Offering buffs that otherwise couldn’t be easily given with other skills from other characters, such as “Lovable” and “good luck”. He also has the highest base evade of all characters, so he would really help with surviving against bosses.

  166. Mephilus the King of swords

    man i loved playin ebf 3 and 4 they were seriously friggin awesome!! i cant wait to play ebf 5, btw everythin you’ve shown of the game so far looks amazin keep it up :yay: !! also appreciate the sexy nattalie limit break :love2: .

  167. Shaydow

    Hey Matt.

    First off, found an error come up while playing the game. Wasn’t sure how to send a screenshot via this, so I’ve placed it in a Dropbox folder. Hope that’s alright.

    Secondly, just want to compliment you on an amazing game series you’ve created and have been a fan since the first EBF game. Keep up the amazing work πŸ˜€ :stars: :stars:

  168. Pixelstar

    Mage Dog summon: Hits all foes with evil holy magic which curses them.
    I don’t understand how holy magic could be evil, but seems legit.

    1. Favian

      It can be like a “fallen angel” type thing, like the Mage Dog enemy betrayed it’s owner and was cursed, which inturn made it to it curses with it’s attack.
      Or something else entirely

      1. Favian

        I’d say the same thing
        but some of us just can’t get a girlfriend irl (or online..)
        For me, next to every girl I know both online and irl is taken, and the rest I know have no interest in me like that πŸ˜₯

  169. No-name

    Great, but one minor thing. When you check whether the skill is physical or magical, magical attacks show the icon for Magic Defence, rather than Magic Attack.
    Also, not a fan of 7th Heaven. It’s okay and all, but Kyun was just iconic.

  170. pitgif1

    I have a question.
    In witch game rngine are you making games ❓
    And by the way this demo is amazing i think that ebf5 will be one of the best games in this year (if it would go out in this year)
    :love: :love2:

  171. Shadow The Worm

    NGAHHH!!! That’s awersome. My dreams will get true, thanks to you, Matt!!! :love2:

  172. HackneyedTrope

    I do not believe single-target buffs should have a recharge time, because if you want to buff a lot of characters you will be spending several turns anyway, thereby already fulfilling the role of staggering out buffing. The same goes for single-target debuffs. Also, I am not sure why switch player still has an icon in the tactics menu, as you can switch in one click by just clicking on player you want to switch. Dark Pulse and Dark Pulsar could be combined into one skill al la firestorm/icestorm/thunderstorm, though you would have to put a note that the spread increases cooldown by 2. I’m also not sure why Snipe has a cooldown as it is essentially an accuracy boost, for one player, for one attack, that requires them to use the standard attack. I think you should bring back the cluster missiles effect for airstrike, aka the “centered” variant. All mass healing skills should have the option to target one player with no cooldown as opposed to the standard spread. I also think you should reduce the cooldown of MOAB and Star Blast from 10 to 5-7, and Dispel Buffs from 5 to 2-3, as the former’s cooldown renders it used, at best, once per normal battle; and by the time the latter recharges, a buff put one one round after would have a chance to degrade by 20% anyway, and most statuses would be timing out. Arrow Rain and Combo Shot could be combined into one skill. Screamer should have a single target version. When a character is revived by an effect that would otherwise give auto-revive status to a living player, it would be nice for them to get the status, plus the revivication. Finally, could you give the percentage chance for capture when attempting against a foe?

    Thanks and good luck!
    :smirk: ➑ :bacon:
    P.S. You should read Aysu’s EBF stories on FanFiction.net (No, I’m not pumping my own work here, they really are amazing). Make sure to get the right site.

  173. H. Blaster

    I think you need to modify the Viking hat, it always gives the male players the status Berserk and doesn’t stop unless they’re purified. This brings problems when trying to use other skills that are not offensive since it uses the player’s turn and cannot use again unless using Haste. Can you modify that? 😐

  174. Stopwatch

    Hope you’re still checking this thread. I’ve noticed a few more things since last time:

    [GAMEPLAY BUG] Cooldowns for moves are shared between party members. For example, ‘Fire Spin’ has a 1-turn cooldown. If Anna uses it, NoLegs must abide by the same cooldown counter, despite having not used the move himself. (Granted, it’s really only an issue if players will be able to share moves in the final game. No clue if this issue affects enemies in any way, though.)

    [HAIR] You can interact with Anna’s hair, moving it from side to side. Now I know this was a feature with Natalie’s hair that you removed before the demo, so I have no idea if you wanted Anna to still have this feature or if you just forgot to remove it for her too.

    [OPTION/IDLE ANIMATION BUGS] When idle animations are turned ON for PLAYERS and turned OFF for FOES, many enemies will still have some aspects of their idle animations, including:

    Pretty much any enemy with basic circular eyes can still blink. (eg. Dogs, Bushes, Bears, etc.)
    Pretty much anything that β€œdrips”, still β€œdrips”. (The Ashen Gloop’s lava, the Sandstone Boulder’s sand, etc.)
    The Fallen – The thumbs on their free hands lightly fidget.
    Beheaded Fallen – Head bobs up and down.
    Burned Fallen – Sword glow radiates.
    Bears – Ears and tail wiggle.
    Worms – Wings flap. Eyes pulsate.
    Cutie Worm – “Bow hair” moves.
    Voodoo Dolls – Hair moves.
    Matt Doll – Feather moves.
    Dragons – Behind the head, plumage/hair/appendages sway.
    Slimes – The various appendages and doodads sticking out of the top of their heads move. For certain slimes, their mouth moves (eg. Big Sand Slime).
    Slime Mouse – Ears wiggle. Electrical sparks appear.
    Slime Bunny – Ears wiggle.
    Bushes – Leaves and branches sticking out the top of their heads move.
    Cats – Ears wiggle. Hair curls move.
    Stone Idol – Arms move up and down. Eyes move.
    Metal Idol – Eyes move.
    Wooden Idol – Arms/Legs move back and forth. Leaves sway.
    Mage Dog – Cowl moves back and forth.
    Rescue Dog – Ears wiggle.
    Marble Boulder – Brown β€œshoulder pads” move.
    Obsidian Boulder – The gem at the top of its head gleams occasionally.
    Amethyst Golem – The amethysts that cover it gleam occasionally, similar to the obsidian boulder’s gem.
    Crystal Gloop – Crystals “glow”.
    Electric Bat – Parts of their wings move up and down.
    Jet Fish – Jet glow radiates.
    Demon Mirror – Disconnected bits on each side float up and down.
    Seaweed Chomper – Eye is shifty. Seaweed on the back still moves. (Probably similar issues with other chompers.)
    Blue Creep – Eyes pulsate. Jaw moves. (Probably similar issues with other creeps.)
    Pink Squid – Eyes pulsate. Ear-like appendages move. (Probably similar issues with other squids.)

    There’s probably MUCH more, but I can’t be bothered to check every variant of every enemy. This issue works both ways, by the way. When player idles are turned OFF but foe idles are turned ON, these specific animation traits don’t occur at all.

    small visual bug detected, when lance wear space outfit it turn black, but when he use Oblition Limit break, his outfit turn white but the top keep black/yellow :hurray:

  179. Alexander

    There is a dumb idea, but, what would happens if exist a food item that when you use it, cause that character get “Fat”! (XD) you know like fatness increase defense and some element resitance or something like that, but keeping that aside, imagine the next escene … You use that item on Natalie … now is Fatalie (XD) and oh wait, youre in danger and Fat-alie has her Limit Break gauge full! …then you use KYUN! (>w<) with Natalie fat version XD :scared: :sick: :love:

    Pretty dumb huh? XD And nice work on new Lance style, i like it but i guess his face got pretty round or maybe its his eyes, idk but i feelk it cool yet weirdish 😐 πŸ™

  181. valhunter97

    My heroes got scorch from monolith; when they got -50% health debuff i summoned flybot to convert it to buff. But next attack Nolegs died as if he still has low hp, and this buff seemed to apply (to Matt) only at next turn. I reckon it’s more convenient to change hp right after the summon. And… Is it a bug or should be that way?

  182. pilover

    lance uses the scouter when debuffing foes, that is fine. BUT when scanning foes over 9000 may pop up, the main problem is lance DOES NOT use the scouter when scanning foes, isnt that what it is for? ❓ 😑
    will Vegeta get his scouter back? ❓ that would be cool for a expansion

  183. greg501

    I have a concern about the cooldown system. If all of a characters elements can be covered by skills with no cooldown, how would the standard attack not be pointless? The skills would just always be better in every situation. Also Lance would have the only cooldown-less all-targeting healing skill.

    1. HackneyedTrope

      Isn’t standard attack sorta pointless in EBF 1-4 anyway though? I can’t remember the last time I used it, with the exception of equips that allowed mana drain which aren’t a thing here. To be honest, I am not really sure why it is kept. :wut:

      1. No-name

        Well, you can use it while Syphoned. Also Chance to get those special effects and spells, debuffs etc.

  187. Nothingness

    Just a few pretty small things that I ran into (the second one may be a mistake on my part).
    -When I berserk a bear and then remove the berserk status from it with a water attack, the “angry” expression on it remains on it until its turn.
    -This only happened once-and it might have been my imagination (or incorrect recollection), but there was a time the morale status was given to all the enemies-then I captured one one of them and the morale statuses seemed to have disappeared off the other enemies while it was still my turn.

    On side notes. I’m liking the cooldown system. Feels better than the mana system imo and allows for better balancing. The new types of status effects are also pretty interesting (I particularly despise the “hungry” status effect, haha). The weather system is a neat addition too. With all these sorts of weathers, I’m wondering how many areas there will be in the game. Overall, good work so far.
    Also, in regards to the capture system… i notice that there’s a maximum number of summons that you can use during the battle. Will we be able to switch outside of battle? 😑

  188. Timothy

    I gotta say I am very impressed with how far this game series has come. And I also like a lot of the new changes that have been made, especially the the turn cool down system implemented in the special skills. Now I can’t report any errors or system crashes because I forgot to take pictures of those while playing the game because I was having so much fun. So let me just section my thoughts on the battle system right now.

    Special Skills – Alright so I believe that replacing mana with a turn cooldown was an excellent choice and improves this game a lot. In previous games mana really didn’t matter, because items could easily refill mana and each character still had a lot of mana to spare, so there was really no reason for me to care about which skill I used at the time only used skills appropriate for the right enemy. With the cool down system this makes the game more difficult and challenging. There were many times while I was playing in more difficult battles that I told myself that I should’ve saved this skill instead of just using it right away. Also, the skills have just the right amount of cool down, some necessary skills need very long cool downs as they are very powerful and useful and other skills do need short or no cool downs as well I would be pretty screwed if they weren’t available. I also like the new skills I am seeing. With Matt, I feel there is more variety in the type of elemental physical attacks with the new bomb and wind element attacks. Nathalie feels the same in her skills but the skills I love the most was the Rainbow Blast. This in combination with the bone staff (too lazy to type the name) debuffs all the enemies’ defenses so either Matt or NoLegs can hit very hard especially when they are buffed in attack. I can’t say much for Lance or Anna as I rarely used them, but I do see situations where they are useful with their skills. An example would be Lance being to debuff both the enemies’ defense and magic defense and I find Anna more useful when she had a powerful healing spell that can bless allies, which is important because of the amount status effects in this game and how hard they can punish you if you aren’t careful. Now NoLegs in his skills are very surprising and can be used as both a very strong support character and even a heavy hitter. Skills such as the Nine Lives skill that heals and grants auto revive was very useful in a tight situation, the Sushi cat was a very good healing skills as well as granting luck, the haste skill helps give more strategy if I want to use a skill from another ally, and his attacking skill combos are very useful and powerful as they can clear a whole wave. In general I love the skills implemented here and the amount of changes made.

    Weather/Staus – This is something that I wasn’t expecting to enjoy, because I didn’t know how the weather was going to affect the gameplay and I thought it would just be nonexistent as well I never really found weather to be the main changing factor in RPG games. But here there are so many weather effects and in combination with the amount of statuses that can be afflicted from the weather, as well as potentially helping/damaging either the foes or allies, is a great change. I found myself both loving the weather benefits and also hating how much I get punished for not paying attention to the weather or it just completely screws by either debuffing me or putting me in a position where I am vulnerable to certain attacks but in a good way. And with the many status effects, this can really punish players if they aren’t paying attention and can also benefit the players if they use these status effects against the enemies. This also makes the bless status more useful, as there are many times I was afflicted by negative status effects. This compliments the game’s difficulty and I can’t wait to see the environments I will be in when fighting enemies as well as the status effects they will bring in battle.

    Enemies – Now I will say that I am not overall the most excited about the designs of the enemies as I feel they are about the same I would expect in previous games. I don’t dislike or hate the enemies in designs but I still like the art style and I appreciate the new enemies. What I am really excited for is the amount of new possibilities these enemies bring in battle. What I mean by that is, is that with the new type of status effects as well as new attacks I am seeing it brings much more difficulty. There were absolutely many times, especially in normal difficulty, where the enemies can potentially destroy me if I wasn’t careful. Some new status effects or moves such as the reverse buff/debuff especially pissed me off as I always would buff my characters before attacking only too have it reverse on me and starting over again or getting one shotted by enemies. The disable move also made me angry as I couldn’t use the skills I needed at the time forcing me to re-strategize. But what really makes this game more difficult is the more stronger enemies. This just makes me more afraid of machine enemies in general now. I also want to say that the nukes are now always something I worry about because they can one shot the characters with wrong equipment and preparation. The dragons, golems, monoliths, and other minibosses I feel are more difficult in this game. Even if I had the right equipment to deals with these guys, the new attacks, buffs or debuffs by these guys proved to make a challenge, as in previous games, I could handle enemies more efficiently because of the skills I could use constantly. But with the cool down and the constant debuffs and health and stats management, I think my characters died more in this game than in previous games. This is not even taking account with other enemies other than the harder enemies that can potentially buff the enemies or debuff my characters, so it isn’t like the other enemies aside wouldn’t be a problem because they can be if I ignored them. All of that being said I enjoy this change for its difficulty.

    Equipment – I actually found myself to experimenting more different types of equipment in this game than in previous games, as equipment was a very huge factor in trying to have more powerful skills, debuff enemies, having more attack or defense, and in general just being able to defeat the enemies. Now I wished we could’ve changed equipment before battle as I wanted to use equipment each time I enter a new battle, but I found out that changing equipment between battles has become more important. In previous games, I really didn’t worry about the equipment I wore, just the equipment I felt I liked more. But the new type of equipment i found to become more useful especially in different scenarios. Now I still didn’t find myself using all types of equipment as some I didn’t find useful, such as the ones that improved catching enemies, Although they could be really useful when farming for summons. Now I gotta say that I like the fact that some equipment improves defending by buffing a character, as I never really used defending in previous games and now they are more useful.

    Characters(or just NoLegs) – Now I already enjoy the characters in the games and I really do not need to explain the others as they already have the same feel to them as in previous games, but the new skills and equipment they bring are still interesting. Now NoLegs in general is just fucking adorable and cute in this game and is very powerful and useful. The most common team combination I found myself using was Matt/Nathalie/NoLegs, as they all bring necessary buff I need every time and compliment each other well as well. Now despite having very powerful support skills, NoLegs is a heavy hitter and even has a high evade to dodge attacks. The combo attack of having to hit 3 times and hitting all other targets while gaining an extra hit for each killed enemy is useful for clearing waves. This is also very helpful as NoLegs has different elemental takes with the same properties. In combination with the right equipments he can do more physical damage to the enemies, even more so than Matt. The problem with using him is that he is a glass canon as he has the lowest HP in general compared to the whole cast. There were many times I wasn’t taking into consideration of NoLegs health as I have already buffed my characters in defenses and even in evade. But then I see NoLegs one shotted and I am like oh shit I have to revive only as he is very useful and I needed him for support. Overall NoLegs is a great addition to this game that so many people wanted. I especially love the equipment as weapons he has as they are both powerful and very fitting for NoLegs.

    Overall I think this is a great change in the battle system and I hope to see more. Now I will say this, as someone who has played all the Epic Battle fantasy games, even though this isn’t considered to be the best and most game changing in terms of RPG games, I do love the changes being made here and I am glad that you are dedicated with this series.

    why are some foes such as golems and monoliths like impossible to capture ?
    was it horrible luck, i took 25 tries with good luck status and failed to capture it at low hp then it died from a counter attack

    why does it seem if you have target badge/ angry faic that gives target status on defending and turtle gi that your limit break bar fills slower with target(or is just defend)?
    if so then is the turtle gi + target strategy = like 80% boost to limit break even viable?

      Limit break increases depends on damage taken, so if you’re defending it will fill half as fast, yes.

    Not sure if this is intended, but Natz’s Genesis does not revive dead allies in the back row. The skill simply says “all allies” and I assumed that it would revive those in the back row. If it is working as intended, I’d suggest maybe making clear that it revives only those on the field. If it is supposed to res those in the back… well that ya go. 😐

      And here’s another one. A few people have mentioned it before, but we got ourselves a Phaser Squid!
      Disem-tentacled Squid Son has returned to destroy us all.

      Other than that and the Genesis “issue(?)” above, nothing else to report today. Had fun tho. Was like thiiis close |—| to catching a flippin’ Cosmic Monolith. Poor bugger was stuck in my web… until I decided to try and stick it in my web. Had 114 HP left… and I stupidly summoned Putrid Worm on it, forgetting that that does damage, killing my prize. For all that those Monoliths incite fear.. let it never be said that David the Worm slew the mighty Monolithic Goliath. πŸ˜₯

    I don’t know if it’s a bug,but I manage to burn and get an foe wet at the same time. ❓

    1. SimpleDude

      Thats not a bug, burn can be stopped by water or ice damage, not wet status effect

    Has Lance always had a tail? :wut: :wut: :wut:
    It’s only visible during the Oblivion Limit Break (at least, i think)

    Hey Matt… I’ve just realized. Are you the scary guy in the screamer talent? LoL :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay:

    So I’ve encountered a Topaz Golem I got him down to 11 HP, and am giving him a thorough attempt at catching. I understand some foes simply cannot be captured, but will there be a message or something that alerts you to whether or not something resists being caught? For example, this Topaz Golem. If he can’t be caught, I currently have no way of knowing if I’m just missing Graveler with the pokeball or if he not allowed to be caught. I’m assuming you probably already got some sort of message that will appear when something cannot be caught in the works, but if not, something like that would be nice so I don’t sit here forever thinking I’m just REALLY unlucky with catching this golem. πŸ˜›

      Another issue I’m having is that the “Swap Turn” arrow wheel on the characters is making it rather hard to actually read the status effects on that character. Just a minor issue.

      So you cannot actually catch the golem?! I have been trying for the past 30 minutes. :scared: :sick:
