Fencer  Christmas Action 2014 20. Décembre 2014, 08:53:19
modifié par Fencer (20. Décembre 2014, 17:21:53)
Very well guys, you want it, you will have it. I admit that, due to lack of my free time and other things, BrainKing didn’t have a membership action for a long time, so let’s do something a little different.

I know that, although it is called Christmas Action, it’s been announced just a couple of days before Christmas, so the promotion will be active for a little longer. Here are the details:

1) Every purchase of 1 year membership will be awarded with a bonus of 3 vouchers of 6 months of the same level that can be given to your friends or anybody else on this site. For instance, if you buy a 1 year Brain Rook, you will receive 3 vouchers of 6 months Brain Rook. If you order 2 years of Brain Knight, you will be given 6 vouchers of 6 months Brain Knight.

2) The action will be active from today to 31st January 2015. The vouchers expire on 1st March 2015.

3) Vouchers can be used as tournament prizes as well.

4) Please keep in mind that the main purpose of this action is to give memberships to people who would not buy them themselves for any reason. You cannot use a voucher for yourself and all transactions are final (no refunds). It is also not allowed to make secret agreements "let's give vouchers each other and have a nice 150% bonus". Suspicious transactions that try to exploit the system may cause the particular vouchers to be suspended or even cancelled. Please do not participate in the promotion if this is not acceptable for you.

5) Since I don’t have time to develop an automatic system for this action, all bonuses will be handled manually. So, after your order is completed, simply send me a message with IDs of BrainKing users you want to give your vouchers to, and I will do the rest. Due to holidays, it might take a couple of days to process them, but I’ll try to handle it as fast as possible.

That’s it. No colour codes this time, sorry. Maybe next year, we’ll see.

Fencer  Scheduled downtime 5. Février 2014, 13:50:16
A scheduled downtime of BrainKing is planned on Thursday 6th February 2014, 07:00 GMT+01:00 due to system upgrade and maintentance. If the downtime duration exceeds 60 minutes (which is not likely but also not impossible), BrainKing would automatically suspend the game time for 24 hours. Thank you for understanding.

Fencer  Temporary domain issue 3. Septembre 2013, 10:46:43
modifié par Fencer (3. Septembre 2013, 11:46:25)
I have just realized that brainking.com domain has expired (I must have missed the renewal), so many people will probably have troubles getting to the site today.
It should be solved tomorrow. In meantime, brainking.cz can be used instead. I have also suspended time control until the domain is back. I apologize for the inconvenience.
EDIT: The domain seems to be restored now, but I better keep the time suspended at least for 24 hours.

Fencer  Membership action 13. Novembre 2012, 08:29:53
modifié par Fencer (15. Novembre 2012, 07:19:37)
As I have already mentioned at BrainKing blog (or I will very soon ), the number of requests to create the Christmas Action this year is quite high (as usual), so it is here and this is it. Everybody has a chance to get up to 125% bonus to a Brain Rook membership level order, based on the popular system of color codes. Let me remind the rules of this action:

When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page or next to Paid Membership link at the left column, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 125% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes. The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for Brain Rook level and 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

The action will be active to the end of this year, so there is enough time to use this opportunity for Christmas gifts as well.

Furthermore, I would like to remind an opportunity to obtain a Black Rook lifetime membership for a fraction of its list price, if you succeed to get the Bonus conqueror achievement. Do not hesitate to take your chance.

For Android users: You have a chance to get free Brains if you help us test our Android applications, including the one I am developing for BrainKing site. Please visit this page for details.

Fencer  Brains for Strategy Points 16. Juin 2012, 11:10:09
I have recently added a small improvement to our current Brains promotion which is valid to the middle of July 2012 for testing purposes. It was mostly inspired by an increased interest in Brains tournaments and can be taken as another way to obtain Brains that cannot be purchased directly.
The participation is absolutely free, so if you want to get a couple of Brains with a minimum effort, just try it out.

Fencer  Easter Action 30. Mars 2012, 08:11:38
Easter Egg! Since the number of requests to create the Easter Action this year is quite high again, it is here and this is it. Everybody has a chance to get up to 125% bonus to a Brain Rook membership level order, based on the popular system of color codes. Let me remind the rules of this action:

When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page or next to Paid Membership link at the left column, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 125% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes. The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for Brain Rook level and 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

This action will be active until cancelled. The day when the action ends is not specified but, regarding the Easter nature of the promotion, it should happen in April 2012. Furthermore, I would like to remind an opportunity to obtain a Black Rook lifetime membership for a fraction of its list price, if you succeed to get the Bonus conqueror achievement. Do not hesitate to take your chance.

Fencer  Membership action 16. Novembre 2011, 09:33:02
modifié par Fencer (21. Décembre 2011, 07:31:43)
Since the number of requests to create one more membership action is quite high, I have finally decided to do so. In fact I was trying to make it a little different this time but I was not able to think out anything new and original. So, like in the past, everybody has a chance to get up to 100% bonus to a Brain Rook membership level order, based on the popular system of colour codes. Let me remind the rules:
  • When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page or next to Paid Membership link at the left column, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 100% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes.
  • The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for Brain Rook level and 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.
  • The payment must be received in 5 days (120 hours) after placing the order. That should be enough time for all types of payment ways.
Well, there is actually one new feature. Instead of a fixed day of action end, BrainKing will offer colour codes until 100 bonuses of the same type or 500 bonuses of all types are awarded. The counter will start when the action is launched.

Fencer  BrainKing migration completed 14. Mai 2011, 09:20:54
BrainKing has been successfully moved to a new server and everything seems to be up and running. It is still possible that minor defects could occur until we test and optimize various parts of the site, but I don't expect any significant problems. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Fencer  A scheduled downtime 12. Mai 2011, 15:58:21
A scheduled downtime of BrainKing is planned on Saturday 14th May 2011, 07:00 GMT+01:00 due to site migration to a new server. If the downtime duration exceeds 60 minutes (which is not likely but also not impossible), BrainKing would automatically suspend the game time for 24 hours. Thank you for understanding.

It is possible that small problems will occur after the migration is done because the new system has a little different internal structure and not everything could have been tested until under a full load. Please be patient and give us time to pinpoint and finetune all possible sources of bugs. Thank you.

Fencer  Upcoming BrainKing migration 11. Mai 2011, 17:49:45
I would like to announce that BrainKing will be moved to a new server soon and it is possible that the site would become unavailable for some time, mostly due to a safe migration of all databases and other important files.

A new server is already installed and it is temporarily running on http://bknew.wk.cz address. Please note that it is linked to a database snapshot which is more than a week old, so it does not contain the most recent game data and it is mostly used for testing purposes at the moment. When the migration is complete, BrainKing.com domain location will be redirected there as well.

I will try to inform about any updates on BrainKing.info site or here.

Fencer  Upcoming site changes 16. Avril 2011, 17:59:45
modifié par Fencer (17. Avril 2011, 16:20:30)
I would like to announce that we are currently implementing certain changes to BrainKing code, in order to improve the overall performance of the site and avoid complicated situations in the future. This process should not affect anyone and all important features are supposed to work as usual.

The reason I am posting this is that you might notice minor changes to some BrainKing pages and it is possible that certain functions (that are rarely used) won't work exactly as they are supposed to. Please do not report it to the Bug Tracker. When everything is done, the complete list of changes will be posted either here or to our blog.

Fencer  A scheduled downtime 22. Décembre 2010, 13:45:27
A scheduled downtime of BrainKing is planned on Tuesday 28th December 2010, 01:00 - 02:00 GMT+01:00 due to upgrade of our hosting centre power lines. If the downtime duration exceeds 60 minutes (which is very unlikely), BrainKing would automatically suspend the game time for 24 hours. Thank you for understanding.

Fencer  New vacation system announcement 10. Décembre 2010, 16:50:35
modifié par Fencer (11. Décembre 2010, 09:33:24)
I would like to announce a new system of vacations and weekend days for games. The purpose of this change is that current system seems to be too complicated and there are make many users confused, which leads to unexpected losses by timeouts.

This new feature is already completed and I have programmed BrainKing to activate it automatically on 1st January 2011, 00:00:01 GMT+01:00. The old system will be used for the rest of this year.

  • Vacation days will be turned to vacation hours. The reason is that BrainKing users live in different time zones and it is not always clear when a day actually starts, according to the server time. Total vacation hours a year will correspond to current numbers of days - for instance, a Brain Rook member would be given 840 hours (35 x 24).
  • All vacation will be automatic, which also means that the calendar would be removed from Settings page (it should disable all attempts of cheating by periodical setting/unsetting of scheduled vacation days, as we could see in the past). Users of all membership levels will be allowed to activate/deactivate automatic vacation anytime.
  • How it works: All started games are checked for timeouts every 10 minutes. If a timeout is detected in a game (and the game can use a vacation), 1 hour is added to all games of the particular player (where it's their turn to move) and it is also deducted from their total vacation hours. This system ensures that you don't spend more vacation time than it is really necessary - for instance, if you play a game 7 hours after it would normally timeout, you use only 7 hours of your vacation hours left, not the full day (24 hours) like before.
  • Weekend days should work without any changes. By default, they are set to Saturday and Sunday, and you can change them once in 30 days. The day start is determined by the server time - GMT+01:00 zone.
  • Vacation rebuy option will be altered accordingly - instead of 10 and 5 days for the first and second 1 year renewal of your membership, you would get 240 and 120 hours.

In order to make the new system work properly, the automatic vacation will be activated for all users as of 1st January 2011. Everybody can turn it off then if necessary.

Fencer  Black Rook action 1. Septembre 2010, 08:13:48
If you ever thought of getting a lifetime membership but never had enough money to pay for it, this could be your chance to purchase Black Rook with a great discount. The rules are very easy:
  • The discount is individual for every user and makes 10% for every year of normal Rook membership purchased in the past, up to 60%. BrainKing uses the shopping cart system history of orders to calculate your discount, which means that only orders placed since September 2005 are counted. Find your discount on the Paid membership page!
  • Other registered payments can, when added up, qualify for an additional discount if the total amount is equivalent to the current Brain Rook year subscription price. For instance, if you already paid for a year Brain Knight level (24 Euro) and a 6 months Brain Knight membership (14 Euro), it makes 38 Euro in total - greater or equal to 36 Euro - so BrainKing will increase your discount by another 10%.
  • The payment must be received in 72 hours after the order is placed.
  • The action will be active for a week (7 days), starting from 1st September 2010, 9:00 a.m. GMT+2. The Paid membership page will inform you about it.
Don't hesitate to reuse money you already spent here and never be bothered with "please renew your membership" message again!

By the way, do you want to receive 10 years of Brain Rook instead of the lifetime one (the price is the same) and use them for your friends or prize tournaments? Just send me a message.

Fencer  Black Rook action - test week 12. Août 2010, 07:54:05
modifié par Fencer (12. Août 2010, 08:00:33)
The opinion poll is over and although the "normal" Black Rook action is planned for September, we have decided to make a little test run now, in order to check proper functionality of the automated payment process.

If you ever thought of getting a lifetime membership but never had enough money to pay for it, this could be your chance to purchase Black Rook with a great discount. The rules are very easy:
  • The discount is individual for every user and makes 10% for every year of normal Rook membership purchased in the past, up to 60%. BrainKing uses the shopping cart system history of orders to calculate your discount, which means that only orders placed since September 2005 are counted. Find your discount on the Paid membership page!
  • The payment must be received in 72 hours after the order is placed.
  • The action will be active for a week (7 days), starting from 12th August 2010, 8:00 a.m. GMT+2. The Paid membership page will inform you about it.
Furthermore, if you don't wait for September and take advantage of this test week, you will get even more discount - another 10% (the total discount still cannot exceed 60%). For instance, if you paid for 3 years of Brain Rook in the past, your total discount would be 40%, so the Black Rook would cost you only 216 Euro (instead of 360).

Don't hesitate to reuse money you already spent here and never be bothered with "please renew your membership" message again!

Please remember this is a test run and it is not guaranteed to be bug free. If you think BrainKing calculates your own discount wrong, please contact me.

By the way, do you want to receive 10 years of Brain Rook instead of the lifetime one (the price is the same) and use them for your friends or prize tournaments? Just send me a message.

Fencer  Easter Action 21. Mars 2010, 17:02:31
modifié par Fencer (29. Mars 2010, 12:19:37)
Easter Egg! As I have already mentioned at BrainKing blog, the number of requests to create the Easter Action this year is quite high, so it is here and this is it. Everybody has a chance to get up to 125% bonus to a Brain Rook membership level order, based on the popular system of color codes. Let me remind the rules of this action:

When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page or next to Paid Membership link at the left column, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 125% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes. The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for Brain Rook level and 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

This action will be active until cancelled. The day when the action ends is not specified but, regarding the Easter nature of the promotion, it should happen in April 2010. Furthermore, you should notice a nice improvement of our shopping cart system - it is no longer necessary to specify a payment method before the order is placed. Instead, all available ways of paying will be displayed at the particular order page after placing it, so if you choose one of them and it does not work for some reason, you can easily select another payment method without creating a new order.

Furthermore, I would like to remind an opportunity to obtain a Black Rook lifetime membership for a fraction of its list price, if you succeed to get the Bonus conqueror achievement. Do not hesitate to take your chance.

Fencer  AlertPay promotion 2. Juin 2009, 18:45:40
modifié par Fencer (5. Juin 2009, 11:49:55)
Due to previously announced problems with PayPal as payment gateway for BrainKing membership purchases, this payment method have been removed from our site and we do not intend to bring it back until PayPal policy is significantly changed.

According to this important event, we would like to encourage our users to try out AlertPay as a very good alternative to PayPal. And since we need to test BrainKing's automatic system to process AlertPay transactions, the following promotional action has been launched:

Every BrainKing user, who purchases a 1 year (or longer) Brain Rook membership level and uses AlertPay to pay for it, will receive 125% bonus to the subscribed period. This promotion will be active till Sunday 7th June 2009, 23:59:59 GMT+01:00 and the order must be paid to 15th June 2009.

And a nice side effect, this action qualifies for the Easter Egg bonus code, so it can be a good opportunity for those who need this bonus for the Bonus conqueror achievement and get a free Black Rook membership. Do not hesitate, there will be no more Easter bonuses this year!

Fencer  Upcoming changes of BrainKing's system of orders 15. Mai 2009, 09:01:34
modifié par Fencer (15. Mai 2009, 09:27:48)
Due to PayPal's ridiculous policy "you are guilty until proven innocent", I have decided not to fight with these ignorants and their automated email responses any longer. As of 1st June 2009, BrainKing will stop accepting PayPal payments, so if you want to make a membership order with your PayPal account, you still have more than 2 weeks to do it. It is a good time anyway, according to the bonus code action.

Shortly said, nothing important should be changed - there are still other payment options, like AlertPay, MoneyBookers or a wire transfer, and all of them work fine, so everybody can continue to order higher membership levels, Brains or tournament prizes, just like before.

I will write more details about this issue tomorrow (BrainKing.info blog).

Fencer  Achievement news and bonus action 25. Avril 2009, 13:08:31
modifié par Fencer (1. Mai 2009, 15:10:36)
As I have already suggested at discussion boards, a small bug has been found in the generator of achievement points. Since this bug caused that every user received much more points than he/she actually should have, the points will be calculated again to reflect the real status. I apologize for this inconvenience. The recalculation will be done later today.

Although the recent Easter Egg action was active long enough, there are still many BrainKing users who were not able to catch the deadline, so we have decided to start a similar action and associate it with new achievements of the membership category. The action, which gives everyone a chance to get up to 100% bonus to an ordered subscription, will be activated later today and should be active until it is cancelled. Please read this short description if you are not familiar with the rules. There are two important modifications - the bonus can be used only if a Brain Rook or higher level is purchased and the order must be paid to the end of May 2009.

That's all. Enjoy.

Fencer  Easter Egg 8. Avril 2009, 09:08:42
modifié par Fencer (8. Avril 2009, 11:17:00)
First of all, I would like to announce a scheduled downtime of BrainKing game site which is planned to some time during the rest of this week. It should not be longer than 30 minutes and the reason is that our database backup system must be restored due to recent small problems (which are already fixed).

The second information is more important. The Easter Egg action has been started and it will be active to Monday 13th April 2009, 23:59:59 GMT+01:00. Click the Easter Egg image next to the Paid Membership link at the left column for more information. Many new BrainKing users appeared since the last bonus action, so it could be a good opportunity for them to get a 125% bonus to a paid membership. And, of course, everybody can take advantage of this action.

The bonus can be used for Black Brain Rook membership orders as well. Instead of adding 125% to a lifetime membership, you can choose another BrainKing user who would get the same lifetime membership for free.

Fencer  Online Poker - official release 5. Mars 2009, 07:58:26
modifié par Fencer (5. Mars 2009, 18:47:20)
I would like to thank everyone who helped us with testing our implementation of online poker game (Texas Hold'em). It makes an important milestone in BrainKing's history because it is our first game which belongs to 2 new categories - card games and multiplayer games.

Since all reported bugs are already fixed and no further serious problems were reported, the Online Poker will be officially released on Monday 9th March 2009, 9:00 a.m. GMT+01:00. As of this date and time, the following actions will be performed:
  • Chips of all players will be reset to the initial value of 1000. The reason is that the system gave some players more chips than they actually had won (due to a bug which is already fixed now), so a fresh start would be only fair to all users.
  • The Get more chips rule has been improved and the description can be found at the FAQ section.
  • All tables will be recreated with new parameters, based on the feedback of players. All limit types (limit, pot limit and no limit) are supported, as well as different table sizes (2-10 players).

Along with the release preparation, new features and game variants (poker tournaments, Omaha Hold'em, 7 Card Stud etc.) are being developed. Most of them will be probably completed after the mentioned release date, but the work will be definitely finished as soon as possible.

Fencer  Cake codes 6. Novembre 2008, 07:46:45
modifié par Fencer (7. Novembre 2008, 07:43:22)
Since many BrainKing users have been asking for another bonus action, regarding paid membership orders, I have decided to create it once more. The action, which gives everyone a chance to get up to 100% bonus to an ordered subscription, will be activated on 9th November 2008 from 00:00:01 to 23:59:59 GMT+01:00 - yes, it is my birthday.
Please read this short description if you are not familiar with the rules. There are 2 small modifications:
  • Due to the birthday event, bonuses are indicated by instead of .
  • An order must be paid to the end of November 2008.
That's all. Enjoy.

Fencer  A scheduled outage 23. Septembre 2008, 14:43:59

A scheduled downtime of BrainKing is planned on Thursday 25th September 2008, 07:00 - 09:00 GMT+01:00 because of moving all BrainKing servers to a new location. When it is done and if the downtime duration exceeds 60 minutes, BrainKing will automatically suspend the game time for 24 hours, in order to avoid timeouts in games with low time control (1 hour and similar). Thank you for understanding.
Important! If you experience "server not found" problems after the downtime is over, please read http://BrainKing.info site for further instructions.

Fencer  Brains action 18. Avril 2008, 12:05:53
modifié par Fencer (18. Avril 2008, 19:03:56)
Since we didn't release a special action for several months, time has come to do something about it. The popular system of color codes has been used again, but we don't like just to copy the former idea, so there are some changes - please read on:

This time we are giving a nice amount of free Brains to all participants of this action. When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 1000 free Brains) can be active only for several minutes. The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for 1 year or longer period and it is a real money payment.

There are at least 2 advantages of getting free Brains instead of free months:
  • You receive a little more than before. For instance, the Red Code bonus is 1000 Brains (if a Brain Rook is purchased) and only 960 Brains are needed for 1 year Brain Rook level - the rest (40 Brains) can saved for a later use. If you never heard about Brains before, please read this page.
  • It is not mandatory to use the Brains for yourself - it is possible to activate another user's membership with the free Brains.
This action will be active to the end of April 2008.

modifié par Fencer (16. Janvier 2008, 10:09:59)
As we have promised, the final bonus code action has been released and it could be a good opportunity for everyone who did not take advantage of the last Christmas action. Let me summarize the rules:
  • The action is valid for 24 hours. Please move your mouse cursor to the flashing bulb next to the Paid membership link at the left column to see a tooltip with the exact time period.
  • The bonus to the subscribed period is 100-200%, depending on the number of subscribed years. Please click the bulb or visit this page for details.
  • After an order is placed, the payment must be received to the end of January 2008.
  • As of 1st February 2008, a 19% VAT will be added to all membership prices, which makes them a little more expensive. There is still a chance to get a membership for current rates, to the end of January 2008.

Christmas Special! It is almost December and, like every year, we are launching our Christmas action. This time it is not just about an extra month to the subscribed membership, everybody has a chance to get up to 100% bonus, based on the popular system of color codes. Let me remind the rules of this action:

When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 100% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes. The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

This action will be active to the end of this year. Furthermore, we have added a nice improvement - you don't have to send a payment in 72 hours to validate the bonus (like before), it must be received to the end of this year - 31st December 2007, 23:59:59 GMT+01:00. The reason is that we would like to make this opportunity available to all users, including those who use a wire transfer or other slower methods to pay.

modifié par Fencer (3. Avril 2007, 20:48:29)
The February Action for the first ten subscribers was a nice success but its disadvantage is obvious - the users from different time zones didn't have the same chance to take advantage of it. That's why the current action introduces the system of color codes which are activated randomly and nobody can foretell the time and type of the next bonus activation.

Please read the Bonus List page for more information. When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 100% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes.

The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

For this month, we are experimenting with Action Points again and the winners of this contest will be awarded by a free membership as usual. In order to make the system a little different, there is one new rule: the first two points of the list of options (move points and win points) are valid only for one game type. The game is selected randomly by the server and is automatically changed every 12 hours. Please read all rules here.
  • 1. place: 1 year Brain Rook membership
  • 2. place: 6 months Brain Rook membership
  • 3. place: 3 months Brain Rook membership
  • ?. place (randomly selected from the 4. - 50. positions): 9 months Brain Rook membership

If you want to participate, please make sure (on your Settings page) that you are eligible to receive the Action Points.

Well, we are going to give something for free in February because we think it is a good idea:

The first ten users who purchase at least two years of any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one by at least two years) will receive one year of the same level for free.

The second ten users who purchase at least two years of any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one by at least two years) will receive six months of the same level for free.

And everybody (including those who take advantage of the mentioned offers) who purchases at least a year of any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one by at least another year) will receive a full retail version of ArchMage, a new game by 300AD.com. The game would be available in both PC and Mac versions.

Il y a juste un an, nous démarrions le système des promotions mensuelles qui ont poussé les personnes à prendre un abonnement de niveau supérieur, car elles avaient toujours quelque chose de plus comme bonus. Cette année ne sera pas une exception, et j'aimerai commencer par la promotion d'un nouveau produit d'un de mes amis.

Quiconque achètera au moins un an de n'importe quel type d'abonnement (ou qui renouvelle celui en cours d'au moins une autre année) recevra une version complète et détaillée de Phantasia 2, un nouveau jeu de 300AD.com, qui coûte 20 USD. Le jeu est disponible pour PC et Mac.

Et Bonne Année.

Spécial Noël! Comme tous les ans, nous lançons notre promotion de Noël:

1) Tous ceux qui prendront un abonnement (ou qui prolongeront celui en cours) avant la fin de cette année (2006), recevront GRATUITEMENT un mois supplémentaire du même abonnement comme cadeau de Noël.

2) La dernière chance de prendre un abonnement de Tour Noire (qui n'expire jamais) et d'en obtenir un second gratuitement! Ceci signifie que vous payez votre propre abonnement de Tour Noire puis que vous pouvez choisir un autre joueur qui aura aussi le même abonnement. IMPORTANT! Ceci est la dernière offre de ce type. Après le 31 Décembre 2006, il n'y aura plus d'offre spéciale concernant les Tours Noires.

La Promotion de Novembre de BrainKing a été lancée et elle ne concerne pas les Points d'Action:

1) Afin de compléter le set de pièces d'échecs, le status de Fou est le nouveau status pour les abonnements et il vient juste de sortir. Ses possibilités sont équivalentes à celui de Cavalier mais il peut être acheté comme une souscription mensuelle pour 2 EUR. Ceci est une bonne option pour ceux qui souhaite essayer un abonnement pour un prix minimal.

2) Comme nous aimons présenter quelques nouveaux ajouts avec quelque chose de
spécial, le nouveau niveau d'adhésion n'est pas une exception. Quiconque achète un abonnement de Fou pendant le mois de Novembre 2006, aura 1 mois supplémentaire gratuitement comme bonus.

3) D'autres abonnés peuvent aussi tirer avantage de la promotion. Quiconque ayant un status de Cavalier ou supérieur, qui achète un abonnement de Fou pour quelqu'un d'autre (pendant ce mois), recevra 1 mois supplémentaire de son propre abonnement gratuitement. Cela signifie que, par exemple, si vous êtes Tour, vous pouvez obtenir une autre année d'abonnement pour seulement 24 Euros (au lieu de 30) en achetant un abonnement de Fou pour douze utilisateurs. Si vous ne savez pas comment payer un abonnement pour quelqu'un d'autre, veuillez lire les instructions détaillées sur le blog BrainKing.info.

modifié par Fencer (7. Octobre 2006, 17:49:10)
Le dernier trimestre de cette année vient just de commencer et BrainKing présente sa promotion d'Octobre:

1) Points d'Action - ce concours populaire (et maudit) se poursuit, mais les prix ont été quelque peu modifiés:
  • ?. place: 2 ans d'abonnement de niveau Tour
  • Pour les 1° à 10° places: prix secret
Qu'est-ce que cela signifie? Cette fois le premier prix sera attribué à une des 10 premières places. Celle-ci a déjà été définie mais elle sera dévoilée lorsque le concours sera terminé. Et les autres prix pour les 10 premières positions ne sont pas connus. Il se peut qu'il soit plus ou moins interressants.

2) Ecrivez quelques articles interressants et gagnez un abonnement gratuit! - après le vif succès du mois dernier pour cette nouvelle opportunité de partager des idées interressantes et de l'expérience, nous avons décidé de prolonger l'option de récompense en Cerveaux pour les articles originaux. Si vous n'êtes pas encore familer avec ceci, veuillez lire toute information et règles ici.

3) Un prix spécial - attend le cliqueur fou qui passera la limite des 10000 coups par jour.

modifié par Fencer (2. Septembre 2006, 11:24:21)
Les vacances d'été sont terminées (pour nous qui vivons dans l'hémisphère nord) et BrainKing fait part d'une nouvelle promotion mensuelle pour nos utilisateurs:

1) Amélioration des Points Promotion - l'algoritme des points secrets a été modifié, dans le but d'être plus adapté à tous les utilisateurs de tous les pays. Commençant dès aujourd'hui, vous pourrez les trouver sur bien plus de pages qu'auparavant, même sur le blog BrainKing.info, et leur emplacement peut être légèrement modifié chaque jour. De plus, les points obtenus ne seront pas affichés dans vos statistiques immédiatement - le processus est différé en raison de la nouvelle méthode utilisée pour leur calcul. Veuillez lire la page Points Promotion pour les détails.
  • 1ère place: 2 ans d'abonnement Tour
  • 2è - 3è place: 1 an d'abonnement Tour
  • 4è - 5è place: 6 mois d'abonnement Tour
  • 6è - 10è place: 150 Cerveaux
  • 50 Cerveaux pour tous les utilisateurs dans le top 50
Un point important - ceux qui ont gagné un abonnement lors de la promotion d'Août, ne peuvent gagner à nouveau en Septembre.

2) Ecrivez d'intérressants articles et obtenez un abonnement gratuit! - Septembre est le Mois des Articles que je souhaite recueillir de votre part et publier sur un grand site, qui sera lancé dans le courant de ce mois. Voici toutes les règles et information. Ils ne seront écrits qu'en anglais pour l'instant, mais je souhaite ajouter toutes les traductions possibles dès que possible.

3) Le Bonus des Jeux Gratuits se poursuit! - Tous ceux qui souscriront pour un quelconque abonnement (ou qui renouvelleront celui en cours), recevront un jeu gratuit de cette liste: Crystal Cave Gold, Trick Ball, Fireman's Adventures, Rock'n'Roll 2004, Electric Eddie, ArcaMania, ArcaMania 2, Troll.

4) Bonus de Bonus de Jeu Gratuit - Lorsque ce mois sera terminé, nous tirerons au sort un utilisateur ayant répondu au point 3) et il recevra un jeu supplémentaire gratuit: Jets'n'Guns ou Undercroft.
Le Bonus de jeu est le fruit de notre collaboration avec 300AD.com et Rake in Grass.

modifié par Fencer (3. Août 2006, 20:37:51)
Promotion d'Août! Ceci est la plus grosse promotion mensuelle jamais proposée, et elle compte quatre points:

1) Plus de Points Actions - nous avons augmenté le nombre de points pour les liens vers les nouveaux utilisateurs/abonnés et ajouté des points secrets. Il y a aussi de nouvelles règles, les points ne sont attribués qu'aux utilisateurs qui ne désactivent pas l'apparition des bannières (afin de tester les nouvelles fonctionalités). Lisez la page des Points Action pour les détails.
  • 1ère place: 2 ans d'abonnement de niveau Tour
  • 2è - 3è place: 1 an d'abonnement de niveau Tour
  • 4è - 5è place: 6 mois d'abonnement de niveau Tour
  • 6è - 10è place: 150 Cerveaux
  • 100 Cerveaux pour 10 utilisateurs tirés au sort parmi les 50 premiers du classement
Un point important - ceux qui ont gagné un abonnement durant les points Actions de Juillet, ne peuvent gagner à nouveau en Août.

2) Spécial Tour Noire - en raison du succès de la promotion de Mai, on la retrouve à nouveau avec une petite amélioration. Tous ceux qui prendront un abonnement de Tour Noire (qui n'expire jamais), peuvent soit choisir un autre utilisateur qui recevra le même abonnement gratuitement, ou nous réclamer une nouvelle fonctionalité de BrainKing (à l'exception de l'auto-pass ) qui sera intégré avec la plus haute priorité. Bien sûr, cette demande de fonctionalité doit être raisonnable et possible à réaliser.

3) Bonus de Jeux Gratuits - tous ceux qui prendront un abonnement quel qu'il soit (ou renouvellent celui en cours), recevront un jeu gratuit parmi cette liste: Crystal Cave Gold, Trick Ball, Fireman's Adventures, Rock'n'Roll 2004, Electric Eddie, ArcaMania, ArcaMania 2, Troll.

4) Bonus du Bonus de Jeux Gratuits - lorsque ce mois sera achevé, nous élirons un utilisateur qui aura utilisé les points 2) ou 3) précédents et il recevra un jeu gratuit supplémentaire: Styrateg, Jets'n'Guns ou Undercroft.
Le bonus de jeux est le résultat de notre partenariat avec 300AD.com et Rake in Grass.

1) Bonne nouvelle! Merci à Eriisa car nous pouvons réactiver l'option PayPal, il n'y a donc plus aucun problème à utiliser PayPal pour tout paiement sur BrainKing.

2) Action de Juillet! Ce mois-ci essayons quelque chose de différent. Afin de voir ce dont notre site est capable (et de donner une autre occasion à nos utilisateurs de concourir), Juillet est le mois des Points d'Action. Si cette période donne de bons résultats, le système de points pourra se poursuivre aussi lors des mois suivants. Et commençons par quelques prix attrayants:
  • 1ère place: 3 ans d'abonnement en tant que Tour
  • 2è - 3è place: 2 ans d'abonnement en tant que Tour
  • 4è - 5è place: 1 an d'abonnement en tant que Tour
  • 6è à 10è place: 200 Cervaux
Veuillez lire les règles et autres informations ici. Comme vous pouvez le constater, le système fonctionne différemment pour les abonnés et les Pions, ce qui signifie qu'il y a 20 prix à gagner. Il est aussi possible de donner le prix à un autre utilisateur si vous gagner et que vous ne souhaitez pas l'utiliser.
Et, bien sûr, les suggestions pour améliorer ce système sont les bienvenues.

Fencer  PayPal 14. Juin 2006, 19:38:14
modifié par Fencer (4. Juillet 2006, 07:49:02)
NOUVELLE IMPORTANTE: Suite aux problèmes constants avec PayPal, ce moyen de paiement sera supprimé sur BrainKing à partir du 20 Juin 2006 (ce sera le dernier jour où les paiements par PayPal seront acceptés ici). Si vous envisagez d'utiliser PayPal pour payer un abonnement, veuillez le faire le plus tôt possible. Tous les autres moyens de paiement (transfer bancaire, MoneyBookers, American Express, mandat) restent possibles et un tout nouveau devrait s'ajouter bientôt.

Promotion de Juin! Ce mois est dédié à une promotion 2+1. Ceux qui prendront un nouvel abonnement de deux ans ou qui prolongeront leur abonnement actuel de deux ans de plus, pourront élire un autre utilisateur pour qui il sera octroyé gratuitement un an d'un même abonnement.

Merci à Groucho pour son idée, lui-même en a déjà profité, la promotion de Mai concerne le statut de Tour Noire (qui n'expire jamais). N'importe qui, qui achète cet abonnement (sur le page des Abonnements, option "pour toujours"), peut élire un autre utilisateur qui obtiendra le même statut gratuitement.
Et j'ai complètement oublié d'annoncer un nouveau jeu Lines of Action, qui a été ajouté il y a une semaine.

BrainKing amène, après une longue attente (oui, ma femme voulait que je l'ajoute depuis Décembre 2002, donc maintenant ceci est pour elle), un des plus vieux et des plus populaires jeux dans le monde, le Go, et ses deux variantes sur des plateaux plus réduits, Go 9x9 et Go 13x13. Veuillez lire les règles du jeu, même si vous savez déjà y jouer.
Et, comme un petit bonus, le jeu Puissance 6 en addition à la famille des jeux de lignes.
