I wasn’t there obviously, but if the above posts was all there was to it, then what I said above is all I can say about ‘the incident’ (shudders). =)

I know what you mean. He reported the mod, and believes some of rules of Kongregate shouldn’t exist. It started before the quoted moment when he flooded the chat and we explained what was wrong with spamming. The quoted moment was the part he was referring to. That’s why I quoted it.

I know, I know, it seems silly, but largely the discussion has centered around mods being bad and Kongregate rules being wrong, which I believe to be absurd. Any long term member can tell you how awesome it is to have such a comprehensive team of volunteer mods to support such a great site. I guess I overreact to mod complaints. They just seem silly to me. If you don’t like ‘em doing their job, then this isn’t a place for you.

Sure I’ll take the blame here.

Direct quote:

wuteverpeoplecanjustchatisntlikecourtorsomethingduhiknowwutitlookslikebutimnotspamming

That is:

wut ever people can just chat isnt like court or something duh i know wut it looks like but im not spamming

Now forgive me, but I consider that fairly spammish. It’s repetitive nonsense. Regardless, I only went insofar as to explain the fact that it didn’t really matter what he considered it, or what I considered it because it’s up to the mods and Kongregate staff.
And this of course only came after other instances of spamming. He is now very convinced Kongregate needs to be fairer.

Now I know there’s a life lesson in here somewhere…

Topic: Elements / DIC (Deck Improvement Center)

I love designing decks. I have a card collection 800 cards strong and a document of about 50 or so experimental deck codes. I thought I would take the time to show off my favorite deck. I am in the process of upgrading it. Already took it to the Elements Forums community. I’m just hoping for some extra feedback here (I’m greedy).

Here’s how the deck looks right now:

Here’s what I am steering towards. Note I upgraded all of the cards and added another entropy shield in there. Also I am contemplating more creature control. Perhaps fire lances.

Whats up with this deck:

Surely you noticed how weird this deck looks. Probably because it has no creature cards.
This deck is clearly defense based. It was designed as a FG farming deck, but seems pretty strong across the board in most battles. The general play strategy is to hold shields as long as possible. Same with miracles. Only play the entropy shield as last resort or when you are cranking out lots of quanta. Pillars are crucial. That is partially what the hourglasses are for. I use hourglasses only when I really need a shield or need more pillars. The deck is used to either stay defensive and copy the opponent’s deck (steals and fractals), or if worst comes to worst, stall.

Weaknesses:

The deck needs a seriously large amount of quanta. The upgrading of the pillars will help with this, but if few pillars are given at the beginning of a match, it is very hard to win. Also decks which can destroy my pillars can pretty much destroy the entire deck. In addition, my shields and my fractals constantly fight for aether quanta which the fractals remove very quickly

The deck has a slow start up more often than not.

Decks with lots of creature control can make it hard for me to get offense on the board.

Decks that steal or destroy my shields can easily kill me.

My creature control is VERY limited. I try to stay defensive not offensive. I only have 6 damage max to deal to any creature on the board. (unless I steal a mindgate or a weapon)

The deck relies on defense quite a bit. It sucks when I just can’t draw any shields when I need them.

I don’t think it needs more creatures, but it counts as a weakness to have no creatures I suppose… Especially if your opponent lacks them too.

What I want to know:

I want to know what people think about having 56 cards instead of 60.

If I should add more creature control cards (fire lance maybe)

I would like to add a mind gate or two, however the fractals kind of suck my aether already. Ideas?

Any suggestions to fixing the weaknesses or just any suggestions in general would be greatly appreciated.

Grr another long chapter, I need more practice with the “cutting off the excess fat” part. Sorry for the long wait.

Please don’t. I like them the way they are. XD I don’t think these are very long chapters at all. Besides why cut down the parts which decide whether your story is good, or great? I say leave in the details. If you don’t want to post big blocks, break it down to part one, two, three etc. Whatever but I would hate to see some of your awesome writing style fade away.

So basicly you’re asking if people liked a game, that is not yet released?

No I am telling people about it. People who did not know of it. I have done it before on a smaller scale, and the people who played enjoyed it. I am not asking people necessarily what they think, but I am informing them what it is, and how awesome it is.

lol. Mr difficult aren’t we? 19th?

Also realize I am trying to work out an earlier time, we might not be able to do it. I will make some questions, and see what I can do from here. my bartering of days means nothing in particular. I am just trying to establish a date I can bring to other people working on the trivia. To see what they think. I will see what they think of the 19th of this month. Or the 20th. Whatever. I will see.
