Version en Español | Deutsche Version | Version française | Versione Italiana | Nederlandse versie |日本語 バージョン

Finally! The moment many of you have been bothering us about for months now, the Badlion Premium Closed Beta! Yayyyyyyyy

Had to get the cheesiness done with at the start. We are proud to present and share all of the hard work done here at Badlion for the past 6-8 months that is Badlion Premium.

Download Client and Learn More

You can find and learn more about the client here: https://www.badlion.net/client

What is Closed Beta?

Closed beta will that takes place after closed alpha (the few people we invited to try it out back in December) and before the final product is release. Only people who have a lifetime rank at the moment will be able to access the closed beta. When the store goes live people will be able to buy access to the closed beta by purchasing a subscription to Badlion Premium. If you purchase a subscription when the store goes live or already have free time from your legacy lifetime rank it will not be counted during the beta. All purchases and free time for legacy lifetime rank holders will begin when the full product release is done (to be announced at a later date).

We will be focusing on cleaning up and polishing the client, the experience, and Badlion Premium during the closed beta. We will actively be listening for feedback and ways we can improve the system. We know we can make things better together over time. Anyone can use the Badlion Client starting today to play on Badlion Open and other Minecraft networks. Badlion Premium will remain closed off to the legacy lifetime rank holders until the store is live though.

To be very clear, we are not announcing a release date for the time being. We want to take it slow with the beta and make sure that any future dates we give out are properly achievable.

What the beta period means for Badlion Premium

During this beta we will be:

1. Fixing bugs
2. Fixing bugs
3. Fixing bugs
4. Trying to add some more awesome features that we planned on doing the original beta/launch with to make it a more polished product.

Some of these features from #4 are below:

- Premium UHC's
- Store to be able to buy Badlion Premium and automatic access to the closed beta
- Friend/Party System (Duo queue support)
- BAC Integration into Badlion Open (as discussed here https://www.badlion.net/forum/thread/144254)
- Full Match Pages with detailed stats about games
- More detailed statistics available on player profiles
- More options for Minecraft Mod GUI's (Give multiple formats for Armor Status, Potion Status, etc)
- Improve FPS on 128 TPS Minecraft even more (we know we can do better than we currently are)
- Progression graphs on player profiles
- Support Ticket System
- Ability to requeue directly inside of the Minecraft client instead of the Badlion Client (experimental concept)
- Friend/Chat system in Minecraft client itself
- Full Language Support
- Lots of small improvements

How Beta updates will work

We will be pushing out major versions of the client every few days or as needed (for really big security issues). Do not expect that any bugs you report will be fixed within an hour and a new client will be published immediately. We expect there to be a lot of problems at the beginning and we want to limit how often we are sending updates out to try and address as many issues as possible. The first big patch is planned for a few days after the launching of the beta.

Punishments

We are going very strict for punishments, which should please a lot of players since one of the core parts of premium is trying to provide a cheat-free environment. It is incredibly hard to bypass bans on premium (for 99.9% of people, impossible), and it's easy to detect people who are making it past the protection. Listed below are the punishments in relation to cheating (Assume any repeated offenses listed beyond what is listed is the same as the largest for that category).

Simple mouse macros, such as a quick-switch or pot thrower = 3 months first offense, 1 year second offense
Binding something other then left mouse button to click = 3 months first offense, 1 year second offense
Any use of an internal/external program that directly or indirectly affects the systems used in Badlion Premium or related to Badlion Client (such as an autoclicker) = 1 year
Any altering/tampering of any files or systems used in Badlion Premium or related to Badlion Client = 1 year
Cheating in ANY way during a competitive tournament/league or cash prize games = 2 years

Most other offenses will fall into one of these categories. Subscriptions will not be paused during time banned, and you will not be refunded for time lost. Early on we will have ban reports and ban appeals available in case of error, but later in the year these will be removed. Please note that the anticheat is not preventive and operates just like GCheat Ban Waves/Judgement Days, which means we might have small influxes of cheaters early on as we fill up our ban list.

The future of Badlion Premium After Full Release

We already have two major patches lined up to launch later down the road after Badlion Premium has hit full release as well. Lots of awesome features we want to continue to add/improve upon to make Badlion Premium the best dang Minecraft experience imaginable.

Thanks for your continued patience as we work together on making Minecraft into an esport. See you all on the PUG'ing system in the Silver/Gold tier (i'm terrible :D). I also want to throw a quick shout out to @SmellyPenguin, @git, and @chocolate_pc who have all been putting in crazy long hours/days/nights the past few weeks to make this happen. Feel free to ask any questions below and I will be happy to answer them.

Patch Notes
  1. https://www.badlion.net/forum/thread/158249


Known Bugs
  1. Infinite install/updates. It keeps trying to install an update on boot. Just wait for a tweet to be made fixing this. Fixed as of Feb 23 3:19 PM GMT
  2. Client stuck on loading screen forever. We will push out a new version of the client when we fix this. Fixed as of Feb 26 9:28 PM GMT
  3. Failing to update/patch. Make sure your system has proper administrator rights to it.


Optimization

For people with low FPS because of no Optifine, please try these to increase FPS as we find a solution to the optimization issues:
  1. Render Distance Down to 4-8 Chunks, anything higher is useless.
  2. Disable Entity Shadows
  3. Toggle VBOs to whatever setting works best for you
  4. Turn off Clouds
  5. Turn off Smooth Lighting (will make stuff look weird if not used to it)
  6. Graphics to Fast (will make stuff look weird if not used to it)
