Topic: Elements / Ideas for Elements CCG (Destructive criticism will be ignored)

I think Butterfly effect (entropy) should be treated as a normal skill, by which I mean, can’t be activated on the same turn in which it’s played, the amount of times it’s been played and instantly one of your best cards is destroyed when you have no chance to counter

I thought it was. Ability cooldown based on monster turn, not when they get it. If the monster has been out for more than a turn, then any ability it gets can be activated the same turn.
Although I’m curious, if a monster has an ability, then it’s ability is swapped, can it use the new one on the same turn?

Topic: Elements / Unrelated Elements

Well, just read through the last of it, and I have to say. rocktheworld, I have to say you are obnoxious. It seems to me as though you only take what you like as advice, and everything else is an insult. A “pro” doesn’t need to repeatedly state he’s been playing longer or has more experience. Simply by stating what you know and your opinion should show who knows what they’re talking about.

About saving space. Typing out your decks is not only larger most of the time, but I honestly WILL not look through those. Having a Screenshot helps me get the gist of your deck quickly, and you can always say things after the screenshot. I don’t even mind going via a link to see it.

Yes, the Unoriginal decks win, most of the time. The top tier players usually build the best decks when new cards/changes come out, then the codes and such trickle down to the lower tier players. I’m not saying there aren’t good original decks, simply that the ones that work are used very often.

Your element description. I can honestly say this infuriated me. Just because you lost with Time, you classified it as an “Expert” element. Time was one of the very first Elements I used. When you make lists like these, you can use opinions, but don’t try to display them as facts. Simply state which Elements you liked, and which ones worked well for you, not who should use what at what point in the game. Also, where’s the deck update, I don’t see it.

Finally, NO, they aren’t only agreeing with Qaz simply because he is an expert. If you were paying attention, I didn’t see anyone say your deck sucked, and they were agreeing with him because they felt the same way. Don’t make yourself the victim, kthx.

^Typical fanboy response when somebody complains about his favourite game.
This is not possible. Because the game is not open-source and Zanz can’t risk giving the game code to some stranger.

My favorite part is where he didn’t even read the post, which said he wasn’t complaining, or bad.
At least it’s nice to know most of the Elements of community can read.

Topic: Elements / What is your favorite card?

I’d have to say mine’s Fallen Elf/Druid. Mass mutation is fun as hell, and it fits so nicely into rainbow decks, which are usually my favorite kind of deck. It can really make some unexpected twists come up during a match, like dragons with scavenge.

Momentum

I’d take out all the pendulums, maybe replace them with the T-pillars, and a few reverse times/black holes to replace the gravity pillars.

How would he play Momentum/Otyugh/Pharoh ability.

One more thing, 3399 cards? Am I reading this right? Why?

He doesn’t like to sell cards :O

I didn’t mean take out ALL of the grav pillars. Just a few. I’m really bad about remembering momentum gives 1/1 also, I mean the time pillars where I said T-pillar. It just looked to me like he had too much gravity quanta generation. All he’d be using it on would be summoning oty’s for 3 apiece, 1 for devour, 2 for momentum, and 5 for the shield. Where I thought they could be spent more towards time, with pharoahs costing 9 and them summoning the scarabs as well.

Topic: Elements / DIC (Deck Improvement Center)

Crowbar, it looks to me like you have WAY too many things to make gravity quanta. The gravity cards you have are cheap, and you don’t have anything to buff your dune scorps, so they’re useless, really. Also, 4 shields seems like a bit much to me. Maybe one of each? Lessee…. maybe some more pharoahs (if you have them) and some more time pillars, i’d take out all the pendulums, maybe replace them with the T-pillars, and a few reverse times/black holes to replace the gravity pillars. One more thing, 3399 cards? Am I reading this right? Why?

I used adrenaline on a forrest scorpion. It attacked ~5 times, but only added two to the poison counter. As it says “for each attack”, I’m wondering if this is a bug or just a hidden limitation to prevent this card combo from being too powerful.

It is a hidden limitation from being too powerful.

Good thing, too. Nobody wants to see deathstalkers stacking 8 poisons a turn


Just thought I’d put my say in, dunno if you’ve realised or not, but the max attacks from adrenaline is 4. Minimum is 2, I believe.

Topic: Elements / Nerf The Devourers!

Seriously? I could sorta see where you thought it was OP. But calling it ugly? Honestly.I think it looks like a giant centipede. Not that gross at all, especially considering the Abomination and Otyugh. I think you’re just resorting to namecalling at this point. Grow up a little. Sure, I have cards that annoy me. (Read: Dim shield) But I don’t go around complaining to everyone. I only PVP duel, because of the specific reason to avoid annoying decks. You could always try that.

Topic: Elements / need help with rainbow ai5 killer.

If I had to tweak the deck, I’d have a Flying wep. , I hate replacing weapons, and I’ll usually draw it in a match, and having both would allow you to lock relatively easily.

Another, not too important issue, a matter of details…
Shouldn’t Shrieker turn into a Graboid when hit with Reverse Time?

Actually, that’s a pretty good idea, and, although I wouldn’t see the point in doing so, it would make sense.

I can see the revive working if you had it as an ability. The creature would be resummoned with full stats if it had this ability. Maybe also have it so that afterwards, it can’t have the ability again. Just my thoughts on revive.

Why would you do this to meh? Do you require more vespene gahs? I have lots of that. What I don’t have is another chapter. … RANTRANTRANT?!

Wow, you must have a tenuous grasp of the language. “I feel sorry for the guy writing the story trying to make it as an author. He will find much worse feedback than what I have given.” How is that in any way an insult? I was giving you a critique, one that was actually fairly mild to what you would encounter in real life. Send off an idea to a publisher and they will tear you to shreds.

Well, interesting tidbit here, doesn’t want to be published. 0_0
If you’re looking for an apology, go cry to someone else. Also, tenous grasp of language? Honestly, quit trying to act like you’re the one who’s correct here.
A. He doesn’t want to publish it, he’s said that already.
B.An apology isn’t going to happen. You said your opinion, we said ours. We MIGHT apologise if you do, but other than that, it isn’t happening.
C. Leave. No one asked for you to be such a big baby. You said your opinion. If you don’t like it, leave. Yet you feel like you were the one horribly wronged, as you didn’t like our opinions. Don’t dish out what you can’t take, pansy.

Topic: Elements / adrenalin glitches

Originally posted by thewqlf:

ive been using adrenalin (increases number of times ur creatures attacks) and noticed a few things

when used on a forest scorpion (1/2 inflicts one poison per attack) instead of inflicted one poison per the 4 attacks it only inflicts 2 poison. dont know if thats to even or what.

when used on a creature that is frozen, it breaks teh freeze. freeze doesnt freeze for 3 turns, rather it stops 3 attacks. if teh creature attacks 4 times it breaks the freeze on the fourth attack

the sliding scale in terms of extra attacks is good. dont want dragons hving 4 attacks. but instad of the dragon simply not getting an extra attack, it does a percentage dmg. same thing with other creatures. so a 4/4 will do 4 dmg then 2 then 1

dont know if these are all intentional or what just thought u should know

Yes, these are all intentional. Freeze and Basilisk blood are not something I’d use against something with adrenaline, scorps will only poison twice, but will hit 4 times. Infections also trigger every attack. Most everything is ATTACK based, so the more attacks it lands, the faster effects will trigger.

Is the title going to be a work in progress forever? Anyway, interesting chapter. Armaticus seems more like a mentor than a combatant, but maybe that’s just me. I like picturing in my head some frail old man hurling huge discs at people without a second thought. :3

Topic: Elements / best element

Originally posted by sonic20:

tips for elements:
Entropy:when using entropy,buy alot of maxwell demons,there cheap and a good way to irritate people
Life:The most important thing about life is to save the heal spells for when needed for example creature 10 out of 12 hp dont heal if 2 out of 12 then heal.
Death:place the bone yards THEN USE THE KILLING SPELLS,it will get you a big army.
Aether:Rarely any creatures but spells to tick ppl off,USE THEM.
Gravity:Amegio is a top defender,use him if you need to defend yourself while getting a card,also sphere chargers are a good card if enemy has sheilds.
Time:Deja vu is a annoying enemy,so use him. reverse time is useful for getting tough creatures away for abit,and protect fate egg at all costs.

Well, not much of a favorite, but okay then. I feel like this should be under another forum. Also, no offense, but it doesn’t seem like you’ve been playing that long. It seems like you talk about them like it’s all PVP, that may just be me. Aether should have creatures, and mindgates/dim shields are good, and fractal and PU boost creature numbers. Life has a lot of healing, and adrenaline is very useful. I don’t understand what you mean by healing creatures, as the effect you’re talking about is holy light/flash. Use the “Heal” spell when under 80 HP or before you win for an EM. Deja Vu is really not that annoying unless blessed. 2 1|1 creatures with no skill aren’t very annoying. Most time decks can handle larger sizes, as the Houglasses and Premonitions can help draw cards. Gravity wise, Armagio is a good defence, momentum can help against annoying shields, and Otyugh is nice for CC. Anyway, I think I’ve gone off topic.

My favorite element… dunno, I still like dark, but time and entropy are fun too, I like life for adrenaline.. meh, it’s hard for me to pick just one.
