• PokeyMookey

    Hello again!

    Ok. This time, I would like to talk about the strategy pages on our wiki. Ther is so many of them, and some are not even categorized. Almost every week, I discover some new page with strategies, because there is so many of them (proboably because a lot of users make their own page, explaining their own base layout).

    It is all messed up already on the first page of category Strategies. For example, we have two almost similar pages, just with different names:

    • Strategies to Building a Strong Base
    • Strategies to Building an Epic Base

    Sorry, but what is the difference??? And then, there is a whole bunch of separated pages, that say how specific is the yard they have. I think that we should create three new pages and only link those 3 to …

    So as you might noticed, the Inferno is comming at us at full speed. There is alot of rumours going on about it, and some of them might be trought.

    For example, I heard that there will be a brand new underground base for each player. That seems logical, as there are already some pictures of new buildings that we will be able to build in the new underground base. The new buildings seem quite cool to me.

    However, I still can't amagine how Kixeye will manage to make a new underground map room. Will it be same as above, just with other wild tribes (Moloch maybe?)? will you be able to build outposts? Some people say that the map room is going to be similar to the one above, just that this one will have lava instead of water.

    Gone for a while...

    December 18, 2011 by Vinzy 17

    Heya guys!

    So you guys might've noticed that I've been gone for a while. One reason I can't log in with facebook (it got some error and the pop-up won't ... pop up which logs me in) so I've been editting as a random contributor. Another is that I've got stuff to discuss with the family so less time for the wiki and more time with them with stuff that I won't talk about and you know why. Third is that I was with my relatives for some time ... Christening, birthdays those sorts. And the last ... I was sort of on a vacation (that's what I feel like calling it but I believe it's not yet my vacation lolz). So expect that I'd be here now and fixing some more pages, fixing the templates (recently fixed the monsters template) and checking pages fo…

    Moving Servers

    This may have been answered before and I am sorry if it has, I really need some help. I searched all around and couldn't find a direct answer. On the Map Room 1 of course it listed my husband and my two sons. We have all changed over to the Map Room 2 and wanted to create an Alliance and move locations so we were all by one another. But I seem to be in another world LOL. Literally! They have all added each other and moved but it does not even give them the option to select me to invite. Now as I read on I am seeing there really are other servers. I did the 0x0 jump and confirmed we are on two different servers. How can I get on his server if he can't invite me, is there a way?

    Hi, I am MrGuyDudeHolmes, and I would like to share my secrets to backyard monsters. And honestly I think these are really worthy and people should take the time to see what I have to say. Now that is out of the way, Let's get started!

    What I am saying sometimes is a bit contreversal, but to most, it seems right. Upgrading resources early in the game is the best thing you can do for yourself. Being intimidated is okay, but having clever base design can also put higher levels in thier place. Of all things you don't want, it's to be stuck in the rut as a high level with low resources. And when you uprade them at a high level you just put a small shortage of that resource for a day, 2 or even 3. And if that wasn't enough, you need to make your…

    I just figured something out! The damage, health and speed of all the monsters in Wild Monster Invasion 2 (also in 1) are 10% lower than they actualy are. :)

    I figuered that out by doing some tests with the Wild Monster Baiter, and made some calculations. It ended up showing that all the NPC monsters, that attack your base have their attack damage, health and speed decressed exactly by 10% (Please, don't ask me how I calculated it, it's 99% accurate...).

    And soooo... I was thinking maybe the D/H/S of the monsters in WMI 2 is also decresed, since the damages that they're dealing are quite strange (Spurtz 108, Zagnoid 72, and so on...). But, if you count those damages to be only 90% of the actual damage, the numbers get a lot nicer when you calcu…

    WMI2 Monsters

    December 9, 2011 by Vinzy 17

    Yo Guys!

    Just wanted to talk about the WMI2 Monsters

    Basically, the monsters here probably have a counterpart with the original monsters. See that Spurtz is Pokey-ish and nearly as strong as Pokey. Sabnox and Zagnoid could be Octo-ooze, Ichi, or Crabatron (depending on how strong they were in the WMI) As you see in the WMI2 Banner and RSVP note, there is a Flying Monster (Teratorn's counterpart) and some big monster with bloody arms which look like some rocket launcher or any weapon (which is probably D.A.V.E.'s counterpart due to the Rockets ability) and they might also have some Healer monster (like Zafreeti) but I would totally hate the fact that they might have some buff monster (like Fomor) and worse ... they have Champions

    Well, I total…

    Heya dudes (whoever's reading this thanks for following my blog posts)

    So again I still hate the fact that the Champion Chamber came late, but I don't have a problem about it. So I just got my Gorgo to level 6 this morning. Alsomy DAVE was level 6 and my Teratorn level 4 for some reason they all finished 2 hours apart. Right now I'm leveling my Fomor to 6 (YEAH!!). The thing I hate was ... I juiced my Drull and Fomor before I got Gorgo and if ever they had the Chamber back then I got all of them level 6. But anyways 45, well actually, 43 days til level 6 Fomor (because I fed my Fomor twice before). After that It's Drull time. I just looted Kozu with 20 Teratorns 3 Zafs and my Fomor and I was like ...

    Something I hate

    December 3, 2011 by Vinzy 17

    One thing I hate other than vandalisers vandalising everything (even those on the walls of the streets and stuff) ... When the internet connection just starts to go nuts ... For example I was playing Backyard Monsters then suddenly I lost the connection while I was attacking Kozu and I destroyed the TOWN HALL instead of getting let's say 4 mil from it, I just got like 1.5 mil .... Same goes with other on line games .... I just wonder why it's like that for now .... We don't have any problems .... We pay on time .... They say they have monthly fixes in their systems (the IP) so maybe it's the thing causing the problem ... anyways when I edit here .... It's still here YAY

    As you may have noticed, I'm not around very often anymore. This is caused by RL time issues, me hardly playing the game anymore and achieving my goal for this wiki.

    When I came on this wiki, it was a mess. I cleaned it as much as I could without administration rights. When I finally adopted the wiki, I deleted many pages, reorganized categories, integrated the portal system on the main page and added various templates.

    I just have some tips on beating the WMI(particularly the bounus wave). And yes, I know that I should put this on the page, but anyway, here goes:

    1. Fill your bunkers with Eye-ras.

    2. Put all useless buildings and resource buildings outside to delay the monsters.

    3. Make sure the ADT,TH and silo is protected.

    4. If possible, use a fast computer.

    5. If you failed or the monsters are almost destroying your entire base, press F5.

    Hope this helps!

    New Base Model

    November 4, 2011 by DarthGrievous1

    Hi guys,

    I've turned my yard into a custom base form that can be easily replicated. It requires a yard that has been expanded and probably a level 7 town hall due to the number of required blocks. Once I am able to upgrade to town hall level 7 (in a week or 2) I will post a picture, desription, and advantage/ disadvantage list. Also I noticed all stats for the Gorgo page were removed, so if someone could fix that that would be great.

Recently, there's this guy who made a page called "Town hall" . It's the same as the page Town Hall but with non capital T. So you should block him for a few days to prevent this from happening again.

    Hello everyone!

    I've just created a first version of a monster info box template, which I called Monsterbox.

    For now, this templates shows the main picture of a monster (the one used in-game), at which monster locker level it's unlocked, its favorite target and wether it attacks ground and air monsters. Since this is the first version, I can not guarantee it's working perfectly yet (or is complete). So, all your comments are welcome in this post!

    I'll start with integrating the boxes on a couple of pages. Note that these boxes include all necessary categories into the page, there is no need for putting these in manually anymore, yay!

    As with the Champion template, I have included the option to not add a matching user category when using the Gender template.

    I originally only did this to hide the categories from the template documentation page, but you're free to use this for yourself. Check the documentation on the template's page for instructions.

    Just to be clear, both the templates mentioned above are used in the Userbox template.

    • Changed champion field to work with the new template (see below).

    So why am I feeling like that? Euphoria! Misplaced perhaps, but nonetheless very satisfying. I'm quite a defensive player in the game, but there's this one guy who's been attacking me. It started out a long time ago, he attacked me sometimes and usually leveled my base. I never did much against it, rather than keep upgrading my walls. But then, maybe two months ago (I'm not sure, I have a horrible sense of time) I decided to put my D.A.V.E.s to good use and started farming his outposts, since his main yard is out of my reach.

    July 27, 2011 by MHLut

    Hello all,

    Finally I figured out why the portal forum template wasn't doing what it was supposed to be doing: I forgot to create forumheader preloads, which automatically add new forums to their correct categories.

    So now it's fixed (woohoo). Note that each new forum article starts with a template () plus a comment. Do NOT REMOVE these! Else, your articles will not be categorized, nor show up on the main page.

    Also, new achievement tracks have been added (for editing Monsters and Buildings pages). I think DarkusAlpha will edit these later.

    The Userbox template has been removed from all new userpages, because the code transformed too early.

    DarkusAlpha reminded me that BYM has several servers, so there are multiple people who can have the same main yard location, but are not in the same 'world'. If you use the userbox template but want to leave out the main yard locations, just remove the entire main_yard line from the code.

    Hey everyone!

    You've all noticed that the champion pages are a constant target of vandalism. Especially the tables are often filled with nonsense. Though it's been requested, I'd rather not lock up the pages for new and unregistered users completely. Because of this, I'm going to try a midway first.

    So, I'm moving the statistic and feeding tables to templates, which I will be locking down for new and unregistered users. This means that those who've been around more get the chance to fix the tables without their changes being vandalized in no-time.

    If it turns out that these actions are not enough, I may be forced to take more extreme measures. Hopefully that won't be neccesary. Let me know what you think of these changes!

You can see an example at my user page. If you want your own box, visit Template:Userbox/doc, where you'll find a code you can copy. Paste this on top of your user page and edit the values to match your profile. Piece of cake :)

    Hey all,

    From the Wikia Labs, I have activated the chat function. I have to say, I've never used wikia chat before, but it's something that might be cool once we get more active users around! You can find the chat when you're on a regular wiki page, in the right column.

    Why does everyone hate on Fomor? Sure he has his cons

    • Weak damage output.
    • Lowest health of the champions (though not quite low).

    • REALLY FAST (attack-wise,not movement speed).

    • Really good at looting.
