    TGIF! Nothing like a beer leading up to a long weekend, well at least for all us up here in the great white north! Kano HQ will be closed for July 2nd to celebrate Canada Day! With July 4th coming up on a Wednesday, how does that work is it just a day off mid-week or do you get a long weekend too?

    July Calendar
    Save the date! New July Calendar Minigame set to release just after Midnight Saturday (PDT)! Share with friends so they don't miss out on the XP and prizes!

    Surrender / Buy Protection / Blacklist Feature Discussion
    Thursday we introduced a feature for discussion called “Surrender” but really the name doesn’t matter, “Protection” / “Blacklist” whatever you want to call it the idea is to block out a single griefer that is taking the enjoyment out of the game where it has gone beyond reasonable pvp limits. This feature will have limits and thresholds, for example “Protection” is only offered after say 500 un-anwsered attacks or 10 un-answered hitlists, after the un-answered attack threshold is hit the option for protection will appear if a series of requirements is met: player does not already have protection against another player, player has not had protection applied against them recently (they themselves are a griefer), etc... I realize that there are concerns that this change may negatively impact your game play but unless you are attacking someone say +1,000 times that are unanswered then it won’t (total number of attacks depend on level and level differences), and if you are attacking someone +1,000 times and they aren’t attacking you back what are you trying to achieve? For the higher levels of the game the thresholds will be a lot higher than lower levels to allow for higher level of competition.

    What this feature is not intended to do is to block out or stale competition as a straight out “block” feature may do. With the limit of the number of people that you can block, if you have 10 people say after you then you may have said or done something in game to invoke that short term pain. But if 1 player makes it their mission to drive out another single player it is that situation that we are trying to target.

    Community Pre-Announcement!
    We were hoping to make a community announcement this week but we were consumed by some other issues that came up. Next week we should have some exciting news regarding Community Management at Kano Apps.

    What I would like to say is that we do have a long list of improvements, one of them being better segregation of the game forum topics. Currently our forum is not structured as well as it could be to separate topics based on game, for example “What’s New” will list “What’s New” on all games, we need to move this to game specific threads. While our games do share some similarities they also offer many differences which can sometimes lead to confusion when game specific topics are formed. To reduce confusion and discouragement in threads we will be moving to separate out conversations to be game specific.

    Battle Arena
    We've had 2 successful Battle Arenas, thanks for the great feedback Kano Forums. This feature is in continuing development and we're reading the forums for your input to make the arena even better. Keep checking back in game for the next arena date, we will be running them 2 times a month. Latest new features include toggle defensive stance and health bonuses for attacking! Please post your feedback, suggestions and arena experiences in the battle arena discussions thread http://forums.kanoapps.com/showthread.php?7793-Battle-Arena-Discussion-(Round-2)

    Alright that does it for me, hope y'all have a good long weekend that get one and if not well I hope you still have a good weekend regardless, Kendall out!

    is it possable to block a person from attacking u

    I have this person that likes to attack me about 400 to 500 times a day

    what i would like to do is say his name comes up on my screen and he attacks me 500 times and all are unanswered attacks

    I would rather block him from attacking me again or something close to preventing him from touching me again

    he is more of a bully type won't say his name.

    You put a Blacklist option in and I want a FULL REFUND on all the money I put in.
    U can not change a game we payed for to play and make it UNPLAYABLE. there r 10 people on my fightlist now that use ambush like its an attack button. Now you are taking all abilities to play the game.
