New Badges system is here!

Hi defenders, lately i was thinking how to engage you all, make you post builds and layouts for other… I made some corrections to the page, for example I haven’t realized social buttons in menu were mistaken with profile links while they are links for signing in with given provider, so I made little correction, and I can already see increase in registrations. That’s awesome, more of you will post builds and layouts, more will learn.

But changing small visual element in menu is not all, I had an idea, add some kind of “achievements” to dd2tools, so I came up with badges/ranks system (thank you Trendy for giving me your blessing). Now on dd2tools there will be 2 badges, one is typical forum rank, more comments you post, higher rank 4 upgrades you will be (rank will be displayed on your avatar in comments and under your nickname on your profile).

But way more awesome thing is badges system. You can earn different badges by posting specific content, getting specific amount of likes etc. After unlocking badge, you will be able to select one in settings page of your profile. Badge then will be displayed everywhere on the right side of your nickname (or on the right side of comment).

List of badges

Hope you like it, and… happy hunting! ūüėÄ

Edit: I already got few questions about badges, so here is quick explanation: You will get +1 of “usage” for given class if it’s used in deck, if you have used it’s defenses in layouts, if you have used it in deck, and what’s important – both private and public builds/layouts count, so you will unlock it pretty fast.

Edit2: After some thought I have decided to lower requirement of hero usage to 10 (5 for gender swaps and dps classes), so those badges will be easier to get, more as an encouragement.

Website was down for last few hours because I had some server problems.

I’m using my client’s server temporairly, so I have no support, but well, it’s free and it’s fast…

Problem is fixed now. Sorry for trouble everyone!

Bugfixes and some info after survey

Hello Defenders!

Thank you for filling the survey, keep it coming! In the meantime I saw some requests/reports I would like to answer right away:

whenever I try to add a shard to my collection, it puts the checkmark on the shard, but when I go into my profile the shards collected amount isn’t updated, and when I go back into the shards page, the shard I selected isn’t checked like it was

Adding shards to checklist was indeed bugged, thank you for pointing that out. Fixed.

I prefer if the shard database is quicker to access.

I will be tring to somehow optimize shards database, it may be problematic, but I will see what I can do. I won’t give you any ETA on that tho.

It would be nice if you could create builds on mobile devices

You can! Decks, Heroes, Layouts, if you have any problems with that, don’t hesitate to ask me¬†

I would love to see some information on how to upgrade such as typing in stats of an item and it saying that it’s the max for C3 or even C4 that way we can tell when we’re ready for another chaos.

Maybe add in a thing to convert prices of items to other qualities like some of those spreadsheets do.

Small update and a question for you

Hello everyone, I wanted you to know that work on dd2tools continues, some of you could experience some downtime of the page, that was/is caused by the struggles with server, but I’m constantly working on it and there should be less and less problems.

Lately i was fixing some bugs and optimizing the website, and I have changed copy shard function a little (a lot). Earlier you could copy link to a shard, and after pasting it, shards page would auto filter for that shard, but when i saw how MrJuicebags was using shards from here on his videos i saw an improvement room. Now you can use icon in upper right corner of the shard (after hovering) to copy link that will look like that:, after opening it, you will see dynamically generated image:
Deadly Strikes

You can use this as image source anywhere (for example in steam guides in [img] tag) without worrying it will be outdated after changes to the shard.
You can also post such link on Discord Discord to immediately display image on chat.

Huge thanks goes to chakratos, creator or for helping me with that!


I also have few questions for you, if you would be so kind, please fill the form below and let me know what do you think about dd2tools, what should I do next, what are you using the most:

Thank you!

I wanted to thank you all for helping and supporting dd2tools, it seems like planner and everything else is working properly.

Since layout planner launch I have fixed some access issues (for example for some of you SSL was returning an error) and few other minor bugs (and latest MrJuicebags¬†video/live stream link on the front page). Also maybe some of you noticed, that page is running smoother. That is because I optimized it where I could (pagespeed jumped from 44 to 97 after few weeks of work!) and temporarily I’m using my client’s dedicated server in exchange for some work on his website, I don’t know how long I will be able to keep dd2tools there tho.

For some time, I will be only working on some minor bugs, small improvements¬†and changes, some 5-minute ideas I’m constantly having, because I need some rest and family time (and i need to play actual DD2!) ;]
DD2Tools took most of my free time for at least 4 months (OMG!).¬†But that is not the end of my work, I want to add as much tools and features as I can, some of them I have somewhere in the back of my head, some ideas I’m taking from your suggestions and discussions on discord or reddit. So keep ideas, suggestions, bug reports (or currently needed: max stat values per chaos tier) coming, if you think of anything, let me know in comments below, contact me here via PM or find me on discord.

I hope you enjoy using dd2tools, if you do, share it, post it, worship it, and if you would like to Рsupport it using patreon/paypal links in sidebar/footer, not required (and never will be) but most certainly appreciated and awesome.

Best of loot to you all Defenders!
