13.02.2019 - Welcome and thanks Schlumpf!

Long time no proper announcement, it’s time to change that! And not just because WoW just turned 14 in Europe - Congrats to that!

But there is another thing that’s overdue to mention:
For a couple of weeks now, Xu-Fu has seen some immense improvements. Most notably in loading times, which are reduced drastically, but there have been changes in the background in most areas that make the page faster, more flexible and more secure. All of that is thanks to Schlumpf!

Piece by piece he has worked through my own code and optimised it, changed it or replaced it with much better versions. I am immensely grateful for all the help and wanted to make sure that it’s known who you need to thank for all the recent improvements.



14.10.2018 - So Many News!

In the last weeks I had much personal stuff to do, but today was reserved for Xu-Fu and was able to catch up with a lot of stuff! The list is longer than usual, hang tight ^^

1. Giveaway winner
Sadly Machiavelli never claimed his Cap’n Crackers, so I had to draw yet another winner. This time it goes to:

SeiriCerin#2343 as shown in this super cute image!
Please get back to me within 2 days to grab your loot code :-)

2. New addition to the team
Not exactly “new”, Jagûar has been around for a long time and worked very hard to get the entire Falcosaur strategy section up and filled with strategies! Strategy Curator is only a logical next step. Welcome to the team (again^^)!

3. Patch 8.1 Preparation
The next patch brings a new pet battle dungeon: Gnomeregan, as well as a new family achievement. Family Battler! Both sections are set up and can be filled with strategies already.

4. New alternatives sorting
A tiny change, but it will have some obvious effects. I made a tiny tweak to the sorting of alternatives.
Before:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Tags > Average Rating
Now:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Average Rating > Tags

Having tags overrule the rating had some weird effects, and with the rating and favourite system being used widely now, it makes more sense to swap this around. Sorry for any confusion this might cause now!

5. Hazelnutty’s videos
Long established in the pet battling world, Hazelnutty is putting out some awesome videos that I can only recommend.
Very recently she published a video with her best tips and tricks for BfA pet battling, including some very nice words about Xu-Fu!
It’s only appropriate to return the favour, so go watch the video and ideally her channel, it’s worth it for every pet battler:
Watch the video

6. More absence, oh no.
Last but not least I have another personal note. The last two weeks of October I will be almost entirely offline and there will not be much new coming from my side on Xu-Fu. That might stretch well into November - depending on how this “real life” thing works out. But I’m not gone for good and will continue working on the page once I’m back! Promise :-)



12.10.2018 - New winner Drawn!

It turns out that Pantonia already got the little Crackers and was kind enough to pass on, thank you very much for the honesty and friendliness!

That means I was able to draw a new winner from all submissions, aaaaand the lucky one is:

Machiavelli#2856 with his trusty Captain Snips!

Yarrrr! Congratultions, please check your messages to collect your prize :-)



08.10.2018 - Winners announced!

So many great entries! Way too hard to pick among the cool, cute and piratey pics, so a random roll made the decision for me. And the winners are:

Franky651 with Captain Nibs
Pantonia with Brightpaw


Congratulations!
I will message you here on Xu-Fu, please respond to the message within the next 48 hours (until Wednesday 10/10) or I will have to select a new winner.

And a big thank you to everyone for participating, as well as to Blizzard for sponsoring the codes :-)
