Topic: War of Omens / Tips and Tricks for Vespitole playing

I think statistically buying from the bank versus hand you end up with the same result, you get a better draw on whichever you play second. The important part would be buying Spells before Allies, no matter where they are.

That’s right. There’s no advantage to buying from the bank first. You’re better off playing the cards in your hand first so you know how much gold you have before deciding what to buy from the bank.

Topic: War of Omens / Campaign feedback

In Grandmaster difficulty, the 2nd hero in the 1st chapter just comprehensively kicked my ass. I find it hard to imagine ever beating Agash in the 3rd battle of the 2nd chapter.

I got lucky and got Agash at the second attempt on Journeyman. If you get a good start, The AI will use magic to heal rather than destroy your cards, letting you win.

I think a good way to beat him would be with an apple economy deck (apples, merchant guild, synod and bounty). You will still lose most of the time but occasionally a good draw will generate a lot of money, letting you buy lots of cards and/or bounty FTW.

Topic: War of Omens / Release Notes - 3-26-14 (Matchmaking)

How does multiplayer level work? My guess: the levels represent bands of ELO scores. Once you’ve reached a certain level, you can’t drop back down even if your ELO score drops into a lower bracket.

Interesting. Well I really like being able to see my ELO rating, so if you take it out, and the stats don’t improve, can you put it back again please? :)

Multiplayer level isn’t meant to substitute a skill ranking. Exposing ELO on the leaderboard was an experiment that backfired. We haven’t figured out what we’ll eventually replace it with.

Why do you think exposing ELO backfired?

Topic: War of Omens / Stratagem is the worst card in the game

Originally posted by Endovior:

The point is, Stratagem is logically equivalent to ‘draw a bunch more cards and have the stuff you have on field activate’… which are both green staples. Saying that Stratagem is ‘boring’ because you don’t get to play while blue is using it is the same as saying that green is ‘boring’ because you don’t get to play while they’re going back and forth with their extra draws for any arbitrary amount of time.

I understand that point. But facing stratagem you can be waiting a long long time, more than you would a green deck.

Green decks are a third of the game, but stratagem is just one card.

Green decks aren’t that bad IMO, because they are quick to play – play the card drawn unless it’s a coin. The devs could help speed up green decks without binning them entirely by speeding up the animations. At the moment the player has to wait for the new card to finish animating before playing it, and the animation of a card being played to the board is really quite slow (parhaps the replacement card could be drawn while the animation of the card going onto the board is still playing).

Yeah the title is misplaced. I could edit it (to Play 2 Win perhaps?) but people have replied based on the original title so I think it should stand. My point is really about the matchmaking for new players.

Not because of it’s power. It might be OP, probably not, I don’t know.

Because it’s boring as hell to play against it. Playing against a deck with strategem in it you spend most of your time waiting to have a turn. YAWN

Devs, pls remove stratagem from the game, replace it with another card with equal power that doesn’t deprive the other player from playing time.

Topic: War of Omens / Pay 2 Win

AlienKitty, how did you find out about quitting after two turns? If it was in one of the tutorials I missed it.

FWIW the decks that were beating me probably weren’t bought decks for the most part. With hindsight I think the problem was matchmaking. A newbie deck will almost never beat an upgraded deck; not only are the noob’s cards not upgraded but important cards will be missing and he probably isn’t very good at deck building yet. But a noob will still be frequently matched against much stronger decks, a very frustrating experience. I think it’s a problem as some players will give up before realising how good the game is.

Topic: War of Omens / Pay 2 Win

The fact is that n00bs (and semi-noobs, I’ve put a few hours into this game) are regularly placed in matches versus decks where they have zero chance of winning. Do the sensible thing and quit, and the game locks you out of multiplayer. It’s rude. I will never spend money on a game structured in this way.

Topic: War of Omens / Pay 2 Win

I’m not going to play multiplayer if I’m simply fodder for people who’ve paid for lots of cards. The devs have to make money of course but at the moment single player is the only option for free players that don’t like being roflstomped by OP decks.

Don’t worry, though, the forum itself still exists and is available here. We have looped in our product team and will try to figure out what went wrong.

There is also a thread discussing the current issue, you can find that here:

Yes. There is also a link to your post, which you can find here.

Topic: Eredan Arena / Structure of the game penalises new players

Matchmaking using card level means that once a new player has some high level cards, he is pitted against older players with high level Ex cards. At this point, the unequal fights make the game unfun and annoying. Matchmaking should be based on ranking score, so that those of us who didn’t join in the first month don’t run into a wall of OP decks.

Topic: Tyrant / Loyal Legion

I saw this in a quest today, never seen it before. It doesn’t have a badge to say where it comes from, and it’s not on the fansite.

Is there a whole class of cards I’m unaware of, or is this some kind of experimental card that somehow ended up in the game?

Topic: Kongregate / Forum muting script 1.3 broken

I guess the forum must have changed subtly. Now, the muting script (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/103709) blocks the name and avatar of each poster with the Mute option. Does anyone know the developer of this script, do they have any plans to fix it?
