My first thought is that it's super slow (probably too many people on right now)! I'm also a little worried because neopets introduced an NC weapon, and there is a very clear advantage for premium members (the premium only arena awards nerks~!). I really hope they don't start introducing super strong NC weapons!

What are your first impressions on the new dome??

It's not a NC Weapon, per se.
It has no effect in the BD aside from "stealing" (more like granting really) 1 random wearable out a small group of new wearables.

The Cosmic Dome isn't the only one which gives out Nerkmids, at least I've been hearing from people claiming to have won Nerks from other domes.
So, I'm not 100% certain on that. Even so, Nerkmids will plummet in price as a result (as will Paint Brushes consequently)
Update: You can win Nerkmids from other domes

I honestly don't forsee them releasing NC BD Weapons unless they put level / stat requirements on them.
(Which honestly, I think they should do with all weapons in general. I think it's ridiculous a low-statted pet can borrow awesome weapons and defeat enemies like the space faerie with no actual effort put into it)
Doing so would then force people to train if they wanted to use them, they couldn't just use real money to gain an advantage in the BD.
Granted, Neopets has a history of doing things which make no sense... xD So there's no telling what they have planned.

Could this not be merged into the thread we already have on the BD Beta? Because I can do that... I'm just not sure if it's pertinent :p

If you look at it like a new member would, though, it's a vast improvement because the old one must have looked like complete shit.

Even Neopets it's a childish game, the new BD looks like a Nickelodeon web-game.

I wonder...will the punchbag bob "cheat" work now that the BD has been changed?
Or will people have to manually fight him from now on?

Initially it won't work but there should be alternative ways to do the same thing.

I hope they plan on reimplementing attack stances and abilities soon... the battledome is super boring without them -.-
Atleast the prizes (2 nerks and 10 red codestones so far) aren't bad, though maybe I'm just lucky :)

I hate the new battledome. It's really to make it more flashy while neglecting the whole other part of why the battledome is broken. TNT should invest time instead to readjust/redesign stats for weapons and pets instead. The combat log is also a real pain.

I like the new battledome. But it seems like they changed the prize thing (or how tough it is to get good prizes anyways). First day, I made 500k with all the nerks and red codestones. Now, I'm lucky if I get a single regular codestone.

I like the prizes. The only animation I like is the background

I really wish they'd put back stances cause they confused the fuck out of people. Also I can't take my proudly trained noobinator into the dome cause the faerie abilities are still down.

That aside, I'm glad this is deflating codestones.

Does anyone have premium and can comment on how often the cosmic dome hand out nerkmids?

way too slow. 5 minutes for a fight that would have taken 10 sec in old bd is lame. they should just have put prizes to the old bd instead

I've yet to win anything from the Cosmic Dome and I must've fought in there at least 45 times.. According to my win/loss logs..

But they should've done something with the useless agility stat.. Now would've been the perfect time.. *facepalm*

Buggy and slow. Don't like how withdraws count as a loss now. Can't use Randomly Firing Freeze Ray as effectively. Also don't like how pets are not auto-healed after a fight.
