Topic: General / Blight Raids Strategies

So, Draco/Pummeller/Spout deck works against Behemoth, Miasma, and Blightbloom with >95% win rate? can anyone confirm if this deck works against typhon as well?

Topic: General / Blight Raids Strategies

Miasma
25 man raid
6 Hours
Health: 6000

Commander: Ectobrume
HP 20
Mist
Enfeeble all 1
Weaken all 1

Deck size: 15. Randomly picked from following
Festerich
Bloodsucker (1/5/2/flying/counter1/poison1)
Shapeshifter
Pouncer
Shadow (2/7/3/payback/counter2)
Blight Crusher
Desolate Sage
Impaler
Intruder
Feral Scorpion
Tartarus Anomaly
Mist Inhaler (2/8/4/evade/regen3/rallyBT3)
Diesel
Pummeller
Brood Walker
Lumbering Ogre
Sarcous Grub
Infectious Stalker
Venomous Raptor
Blood Spout
Hatchet
Tartarus Reaper (4/3/2/evade)
Draconian Queen
Crazed Assailant (2/6/3/flurry1/swipe)
Redeemer
Mess Infester
Gruesome Crawler

Sulfuris Acid Pit
Blood Pool
Festering Wasteland
Fulfilling Mist
Haze Geyser (7/3/heal all BT1/enfeeble 2/weaken all 1)

Full Power
Pandemic
Exhaust

Basic stragety: Mist hides assult and building cards until they activate. So you play blindly. Best bet is create a deck with pummellers+healers. Tartarus Reaper is the biggest problem, if two reapers are drawn then you are in trouble.

My deck: Draco/Pummy*4/Spout*3/Malgoth/Mend Wound/EMP
So far winning 4/4 :D

Update: so far winning 9 out of 10. the only time I lost is when 2 tartarus reaper were played at the beginning.

Topic: General / Multiple Same Card Restriction

Agreed. A whole deck of same card does not bring strategy to the game. CCG should encourage versatality and combination IMO. Repeating of any card should not exceed 1/3 of a deck.

Topic: General / _Post your card Skill ideas here_(read 1st post)

Bomb
When this assult card dies, 50% chance to instantly destroy the opposite assult card.

Block
If this assult card kills opposite assult card, enemy commander cannot draw new card from his deck in next turn.

Bash
If this assult card deals damage to opposite assult card, 50% chance the opposite card loses all defensive skills for one turn. (including armor, evade, regenerate, flying, counter, and payback)

Topic: General / HELP! How to deal with this annoying deck

Once both the Lodestar and the Mortar Bunker are played, my deck is doomed.
How to deal with it?

Vyander: 3 Mind Controllers, Rifter, Cannon Walker, EMP, Predator and an Enclave Pylon
(If Rifter activates when you have EMP in your hand it should wipe out all the Lodestars on the board, Cannon Walker should hopefully kill the Mortar Bunker, MCs will kill the Lodestars when they attack it and with Vyander/Pylons healing should be able to wipe out one or two each. Rifter shoudl also be able to wipe out Havoc but if it fails you can easily rely on Predator (2/3/1 Strike 1, AA1 should be able to wipe both out)

Yes this will probably work.

But the problem is, if you specialize your offense deck too much to defeat Duncan/Loadstar, your offense deck will fail miserably to other common decks in faction war, e.g. Draco/Pummellers.

So any suggestions for Mutant Annihilation? I was thinking Dalia with 2 bolides, 1 aegis + 1 other unit (2+ dmg). Enemy commander has heal BT, weaken all 1 (reason for the other unit), and enfeeble all 1 (kind of cancels the aegis armor though)

I used the following deck for Mutant Annihilator after having a little chat with ArcanisX about which additional cards might be needed. Worked on the first try…

Dalia – Bolide Walker x 2, Aegis x 2, Titan, Rifter, Bolster Xeno, Pandemic, Mend Wounds x 2

The cards went out in this order: Bolster Xeno, Titan, Bolide Walker, Mend Wounds, Rifter, Aegis, Bolide Walker, Pandemic, Aegis, Mend Wounds. Victory in turn 41, as I recall.

Looking back, the last Aegis and Mend Wounds were unneeded.

Meanwhile, I don’t believe the people who claim that they got the achievement with an unmodified Dalia/Bolide/Aegis deck and no additional cards. As Darth_Sirov mentioned, the enemy commander has Weaken All 1 which would negate both Aegis’ attacks. Even if you somehow managed to destroy all of the enemy units and structures, the battle would still end in a stalemate. So, I call BS on that.

Changed a bit and it also worked on first try:
Draco, Bolidex2, Aegisx2, Rifter, Nimbus, Poseidon, Pandemic, Mend Woundx2

Topic: General / card balance formula

card_value = attack_value + defense_value – delay_value

attack_value = sum of att_skill_value + att_value

defense_value = sum of def_skill_value + hp

delay_value = attack_value * (delay -1)

calculation of skill_value is complicated because you need to take in to account the % of cards that have the counter skill. e.g.

weight of “strike” equals to (1-x/2), where x is the % of cards that can evade. Suppose there are 200 assult cards and 20 of them can evade, then the weight of strike is 0.95.

so the value of “strike 2” is 2*0.95 = 1.9

Assuming the average number of assult cards in play is 3, then the weight of “strike all 2” is 2*0.95*3=5.7

weight of weaken = avg_survival_round = avg(defense_value) / avg(attack_value)

Omega:
Attack_value = 1(att) + 0.5(siege. assuming 50% of decks include building) + 0.95(strike 1) ~= 2.5
Defense_value = 5(hp) + 2.5(weaken. assuming an card survives 2.5 rounds on average) = 7.5
delay_value = 0
so the value of Omega is 10.

That’s all good news. I quite feel for’ya, reading through all that stuff as a job gotta be exhausting :)

May I also humbly suggest you collect faction war activity and winrate statistics specifically from bottom end factions to see if them casual guys (most of whom, incidentally, are not seen or heard on forums much – or so I assume anyways) are having fun as well as us small minority of top-20 (both factions and forum post count :P), give or take?

A helpful AND non-spam post? Nice. I fully agree with what he said. The more casual and lower level players also need to be having fun. I would imagine that for us upper level players, faction wars are now fun and actually engaging, but for the lower level players, I wonder if winning is a lot harder for them now.

yeah and devs can add a lot more new elite wb-only cards to the non-casual arena…

Topic: General / What exactly is wrong with the new changes?

I think the change in this patch is good. An average 50+% win rate is more reasonable, if you consider a single battle only.

However when we look at faction wars as a whole, it is not the “defense goes first” that spoils the war effort and turns away players, but the war point system. The current point calculation does not reward “being active” enough.

I would suggest a small change that would please both us players and dev: let defender get 0 war point on win. Defender would still gain loyalty points, but their being inactive would no longer help winning faction war (except shutting down attackers). In another word, your faction needs to have good offense decks AND a lot of active players to win a war. In this new system:
(1) If both factions are active, then the favor of war goes to whichever side that has better deck/strategy.
(2) If one faction has poor decks (like ~10% overall win rate) but their players are active, while the other faction has better decks but their players are inactive, then the more active faction will still win.
