Some of you may have already stumbled upon the Leaderboard recently added to Call to Arms. If not, you can access it by clicking here.
You’ll need to be logged in to Call to Arms, and before viewing the Leaderboard and related prizes for the first time, you’ll also need to choose your own Leaderboard display name.
Thanks to everyone participating in Call to Arms. Your help in getting more people to sign up for Beyond Dark enables us to invest more, which in turn enables us to develop more community suggested features from the roadmap!
About the Leaderboard
We added the Leaderboard to Call to Arms as an opportunity to give out more rewards to players that had gone beyond the initial Grand Admiral tier of 50 points.
The Leaderboard is an extension to Call to Arms and will finish when Call to Arms finishes. From that point we will begin to get the rewards out to the people who have finished in the Top 10 positions.
Some of the prizes are physical items and we’ll need to get them shipped to the winning players. We’ll cover the postage costs and will be in contact with the final Leaderboard players for their postage address once Call to Arms has finished.
Each of the prizes on offer are covered in the following sections:
Top 10 Limited edition hardcover art book
Each player that makes it on to the final Top 10 will get a copy of the magnificent limited edition hardcover art book.
It’s something we were initially putting together as a private, internal memento for the team. But then we thought, printing off a few additional copies would be a good excuse for another reward to give away via the Leaderboard. The book will include:
- The material included in the Beta Launch Commemorative Pack reward
- Behind the scenes activity
- Additional artwork
- Interviews about design philosophy
- Information about how the game mechanics work
Top 10 Beyond Dark T-shirt
As well as the above hardcover art book, everyone that makes the Top 10 will also be sent a Beyond Dark t-shirt in the size and colour of their choice (from the available options).
We’ll package both rewards up together and have them sent out to you wherever you are in the world at our expense!
Top 5 1 Free copy of Beyond Dark full release
The first additional reward reserved for the Top 5 is a free copy of the full release of Beyond Dark.
We’ll do our best to get your copy to you as soon as it is available for release. You’ll not only be one of the first to play the full release, but you won’t even have to buy it to do so!
Top 5 Invitation to private video Q&A and feedback session with the Beyond Dark team
In addition to the above 3 prizes (hardcover art book, t-shirt and 1 free game copy) each player that finishes in the Top 5 will also get the opportunity to join us on a private video Q&A and feedback session with the Beyond Dark team.
On the call will be our team and the Leaderboard’s Top 5. The video call will take place either towards the end, or after Early Beta which means you will have had a chance to play Beyond Dark beforehand.
Of course participation is optional. You’ll have the ability to give us your feedback directly. You can tell us what you would like to keep as it is, would you would like to see tweaked or improved, and which features you would most like to see introduced as a priority.
1st 2 additional free copies of Beyond Dark full release (3 in total)
The player to finish in 1st position will get each of the above prizes (hardcover art book, t-shirt, 1 free game copy and an invitation to private video Q&A).
They will also receive 2 additional free copies of the full release of Beyond Dark – which will give them 3 free copies in total.
1st Featured blog post
We’ll work with the outright winner to produce a short post which we’ll publish on our blog. It could be a little bit about yourself, something gaming related e.g. an alliance you belong to or website you’d like to promote. This prize is completely optional but dependent on agreement of topic.
1st Winner’s trophy
We’ll commemorate your win with a personalised, engraved winner’s trophy. We’ll let you choose which name we put on it before we send it out to you.
The Leaderboard contest will be open as long as Call to Arms is still running (which will run until the Beta is close to completion).
Once Call to Arms has finished the final Leaderboard positions will be locked-in. We will contact all players on the final Leaderboard individually to confirm any personal details we will require to get them their prizes.
We will be manually reviewing the final scores and reserve the right to withhold and reallocate prizes of anyone caught/suspected of falsifying signups to inflate their score.
Thanks again to everyone participating in Call to Arms. We’ll be back soon with some fresh content and updates.
