Fencer  Black Rook action - test week 12. август 2010, 07:54:05
Променен от Fencer (12. август 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. март 2010, 17:02:31
Променен от Fencer (29. март 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. юни 2009, 18:45:40
Променен от Fencer (5. юни 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. май 2009, 09:01:34
Променен от Fencer (15. май 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. април 2009, 13:08:31
Променен от Fencer (1. май 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. април 2009, 09:08:42
Променен от Fencer (8. април 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. март 2009, 07:58:26
Променен от Fencer (5. март 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.

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.

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. април 2008, 12:05:53
Променен от Fencer (18. април 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.

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.

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.

BrainKing's November Action has been launched and it is not about Action Points:

1) In order to make the set of chess pieces completed, Brain Bishop is the new level of membership and it has been just released. Its capabilities are equivalent to Brain Knight but it can be purchased as a monthly subscription for 2 EUR. It is a good option who want to try a paid membership for a minimal price.

2) Since we like to introduce new features with something special, the new membership level is not an exception. Everybody who purchases the Brain Bishop membership during November 2006, will get 1 extra month for free as a bonus.

3) Other paying members can take advantage of the action as well. Everybody with Brain Knight or higher level, who purchases a Brain Bishop membership for someone else (during this month), will receive 1 extra month to his own membership level for free. It means that, for example, if you are a Brain Rook, you can get another year of this membership for only 24 Euro (instead of 30) by purchasing a Brain Bishop level for twelve users. If you are not sure how to buy a membership for someone else, please read the detailed instructions on BrainKing.info blog.

1) Action Points improvements - the secret points algorhithm has been modified, in order to become more convenient to all users from all countries. Starting today, you can find them on many more pages than before, even on the blog site BrainKing.info, and their location can be slightly changed every day. Moreover, the earned points won't show up in your stats immediately - the process is delayed due to a new method of their calculation. Please read the Action Points page for details.
  • 1. place: 2 years Brain Rook membership
  • 2. - 3. place: 1 year Brain Rook membership
  • 4. - 5. place: 6 months Brain Rook membership
  • 6. - 10. place: 150 Brains
  • 50 Brains for all users from the top 50 places
One important point - who won a membership at the August action points contest, cannot win it again in September.

2) Write interesting articles and get a free membership! - September is the Month of Articles which I want to collect from you and publish on a brand new site, to be launched later this month. Please read all information and rules here. They are only in English at the moment, but I want to add all possible translations as soon as possible.

3) Free Game Bonus continues! - Everybody who purchases any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one), will receive one free game from this list: Crystal Cave Gold, Trick Ball, Fireman's Adventures, Rock'n'Roll 2004, Electric Eddie, ArcaMania, ArcaMania 2, Troll.

4) Free Game Bonus Bonus - when this month is over, we will ballot one user who used the previous 3) point and he will receive one more free game: Jets'n'Guns or Undercroft.
The game bonus is the result of our cooperation with 300AD.com and Rake in Grass.

2) Black Rook Special - due to a good success of the May Action, it is here again with a small improvement. Everybody who purchases the Black Rook membership (which never expires), can either choose another user who will receive the same membership for free, or ask us for a new BrainKing feature (except auto-pass ) which would be implemented with the highest priority. Of course, such a feature request must be reasonable and possible to do.

3) Free Game Bonus - everybody who purchases any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one), will receive one free game from this list: Crystal Cave Gold, Trick Ball, Fireman's Adventures, Rock'n'Roll 2004, Electric Eddie, ArcaMania, ArcaMania 2, Troll.

1) Good news! Thanks to Eriisa we could reactivate the PayPal option, so there are no more problems to use PayPal for any payments on BrainKing.

2) July Action! Let us try something different this month. In order to test what our site is capable of (and to give our users another chance to compete), July is the Month of Action Points. If this test period produces good results, the system of points can continue in the following months as well. And let us start with some attractive prizes:
  • 1. place: 3 years Brain Rook membership
  • 2. - 3. place: 2 years Brain Rook membership
  • 4. - 5. place: 1 year Brain Rook membership
  • 6. - 10. place: 200 Brains
Please read the rules and other information here. As you can see, the system works separately for paying members and pawns, which means there will be 20 prizes to award. It is also possible to give the prize to another user if you win and do not want to use it.
And, of course, suggestions to improve this system are welcome.

IMPORTANT NEWS: Due to continuous problems with PayPal, this payment method will be cancelled on BrainKing as of 20th June 2006 (it will be the last day to accept PayPal payments here). If you plan to use PayPal to pay for a membership, please do it as soon as possible. All other ways of payment (wire transfer, MoneyBookers, American Express, money order) remain unchanged and a brand new one might appear soon.

June Action Reminder! This month is dedicated to a 2+1 action. Everybody who purchases a new two years membership or extends the current one by two years, can choose another user who will be given one year of the same membership level for free.

Thanks to Groucho's idea, who has already taken advantage of it, the May Action is about the Black Rook membership (which never expires). Everyone, who purchases this membership (on the Paid Membership page, option "forever"), can choose another user who will receive the same membership for free.
And I almost forgot to announce a new game Lines of Action, which was added a week ago.

BrainKing brings, after a long wait (yes, my wife wanted me to add it since December 2002, so it is for her now), one of the oldest and most popular games in the world - Go - and its two smaller variants, Go 9x9 and Go 13x13. Please read the BrainKing rules of this game, even if you know how to play it.
And, as a small bonus, the game of Connect6 as an addition to the pieces-in-line family.

Fencer  Colours of game pieces 13. април 2006, 09:39:03
Променен от Fencer (14. юни 2006, 15:08:18)
Since the current BrainKing system of colours of game pieces (white player always starts a game) is not suitable for all game types and more games will be added soon, I have decided to fix this problem globally for all game types.
When the fix is applied, some games would be started by a black player (checkers, pente, shogi, go, etc.) or red player (xiangqi) and this feature would be highlighted in game invitations. It will also affect all other games (running or finished), so don't be alarmed if the colour of your pieces changes from white to black etc. It is just a visual fix, nothing else will be modified.
This improvement will be active in a day or two, along with the release of the game of Go.

April Action! This month is dedicated to free advertising on BrainKing. Everybody who purchases a new membership or extends the current one, can place a text advertisement to the right column (see BrainKing April Action box) to promote own site or any other favourite pages for free. The duration of showing this advertisement depends on the length and level of the purchased membership:
  • 2 days for 6 months Brain Rook, 5 days for 1 year Brain Rook, 12 days for 2 years Brain Rook.
  • 1 day for 6 months Brain Knight, 3 days for 1 year Brain Knight, 7 days for 2 years Brain Knight.
  • Other kinds of membership will be sorted individually.</ul>
    The promoted sites must be legal, of course - no porn, warez, terrorist etc. pages are allowed. The click statistics page of the advertisement will be provided to the corresponding person as well.
    The advertisements will be "serialized" - a new one appears after the previous one expires.

March Action! BrainKing offers a very special bonus this month - everybody who purchases a new membership or extends the current one, can create a prize tournament with the same membership as the prize for a winner for free. In order to create a tournament, you must have a Brain Rook level or higher, either before the membership purchase or after.

1) BrainKing introduces Fellowship team matches - a similar system to team tournaments but based on individual challenges from one fellowship to another one. The challenges can be created by team captains on the fellowship pages.

2) A reminder of the February action! Like in every month of this year, February is no exception, speaking of something extra about the paid membership - everybody who purchases a new membership or extends the current one, will have a 50% chance to receive a 50% bonus for free. For example, one year membership can be changed to one and half year (6 free months), a two year membership payment makes a good chance to get the whole year for free, etc. The probability of the success will be determined at the moment of processing the payment by an absolutely independent and fair algorithm and no user will be privileged.

3) Last chance to get a membership for the current price! According to the changing exchange rate of foreign currencies and growing expenses it is necessary to adjust the membership prices accordingly. As of 1st March 2006 the prices will be increased by 2 Euro - Brain Knight would be for 20 (1 year) and 12 (6 months) Euro, Brain Rook for 30 (1 year) and 18 (6 months) Euro. Considering this and the mentioned February action, it might be a good idea to make all planned payments as soon as possible :-)
