Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Has anyone gotten 2k of everything legitimately?

I’m at 1900 papers, I have x132 kred multi and I’m still making 10 untrig$/day which would take me 105,000 days to get to 2000 if I stopped resetting…. It’s quite a ways away

Oh and 46 tredecillion angels btw

Topic: War of Omens / Crafting

2 things about this:

1: Yes, it i more cost efficient to open lower packs, however it is also less time efficient, and the whole time you’re opening packs you could have been fighting more to open more packs

2: Your numbers are based on the maxes that you have, my numbers will be different because I have 23/25 rares maxed, so my gold packs would probably be quite a bit better than yours, and the more max you have of each the better each pack becomes, oak will still generally be the best but the numbers will smoot out more the more you play

This game probably never will because of the export/import options, you could just save 1 export and put it somewhere and instantly give everyone the badge, they don’t like that

Topic: War of Omens / A little of the math behind this game

A lot of people get confused by the math behind multiple % based things, I’m talking specifically about lackeys, SoR, serpent altars etc, people don’t know if it linearly adds to it (so for SoR would be 10% + 10% + 10% + etc…) or if it’s a different way, and I’m here to explain how it works (it is NOT linear)

Basically what the game will do is when you do something to set off one of these percentages, it’ll go through and ask each thing that can proc and roll a 100 sided die to see if it procs, so for serp altar it would be rolling a 4 sided (1/4 = 25/100) to see if it’ll proc and it’ll go down the list like that for each altar

The math to see the actual % of a proc is with this simple-ish formula: 1-(1-%)^n, so for serpent altars this would be 1-(1-.25)^n, simplified to 1-(.75)^n, where n is the number of altars out. This formula calculates the percent chance for 1 altar to proc.

For multiple procs there’s another formula to follow: 1-((1-(%)^x)^(n-(x-1)) that’s a little more complex, but bear with me, x is the number of procs from 1 action, like 2 or 3 serp altars activating, and n is the number of altars so if you had 2 altars and wanted to see the % chance of a double proc, it would be 1-((1-(.25)^2)^(2-(2-1)) simplified down to 1-(.9375)^1 = .0625 = 6.25% of the time, the more altars the higher % chance this will go

(little hint also, the multi and single proc are technically the same formula but I left off the x pieces cause there are things in this game that can single proc only, so a simplified formula helps speed up things and avoid confusion)

I used altars as my main example because they have a very easy number to show with and because they can multiproc, this works with SoR and lackey too, and everything that has a % effect with multiple of them affecting 1 thing, this game strays away from linear.

Another big note: For lackey the hero is counted in the n so make sure to include them (n = lackeys +1), vald and biro lackeys can multiproc as well

hope this is understandable and helps :)

Lackey is insanely strong with Gretta, get enough out and her intercept and retaliate near 100%, completely protecting your alies while dishing out damage

Topic: War of Omens / Deck of Unmaking

This is a deck idea I (and probably many others) had, spamming gust/words with scribes (since they can boost now) basically bring 2+ scribes, at least 1 copy of word and gust (I personally run 2 word 1 gust) 2 wards, maybe a rebuke etc, flower/petals for kill con

(My current deck is: 2x unmake 1x gust 2x scribe 2x ward 1x rebuke 1x flower 1x petals)

After you have all that set up, just try and get scribes behind walls and charged, then buy up words and gusts and have fun, aim gusts at the bank or at big threats (assuming you don’t have a word charged) and then use word to erase stuff, erase their walls and shoot down their allies, or unmake the good stuff in their hand, or even your own coins for more unmake/gust redraws to screw with em more

This deck isn’t an op deck, it’s a solid deck, it wins a good bit but like all endazu anima decks, it requires you to have a good early game and keep allies on field, it’s relatively slow, the main reason to play it is because it is fun as heck to play

I generally do it as Calipeth (4 ward charge + scribes to charge) Jesmai could be good, I typically end up with max allies pretty quick though and then just unmake stuff so Cali was my preferred

Topic: War of Omens / After a bit of testing...

Well…. what happens is it goes form left to right generally (I’m assuming it happens here too) so the dire boar triggers, sacs a lamb, which then feeds you magic, saccing the other lamb, and then feeds you again, saccing a boar (not sure if it has to be the one that already triggered or not) and if it wasn’t the one that triggered then the next one triggers and sacs it…

Overall, I think it does this because the 2 dires don’t activate at the same time, meaning one will trigger and then the feed magic will trigger off of it before the second can trigger

Right…. now think of running multiple of them .-. they can go negative gold, so soon that boost form usury turns into a huge debt

Topic: War of Omens / WAR! Hunh! What is it good for?

yeah, I’ve had many a knight that refused to protect his comrades (and even hurt them cause more retaliate than his hp) instead of defending them like he should be

Topic: War of Omens / WAR! Hunh! What is it good for?

You both make good points but overall I’ve got to agree with Kholai about most things, the whole war vs retaliate really sucks since they end up suiciding so much, a 4 cost militia is worse in nearly every way to the ballista now that that thing is so tanky, ramparts and palisade (and he was right that 3/1 is better then 7/2 and it’s actually better to split these up cause then if it gets half killed you can bring that half back, meanwhile ramp can be stuck at 1 charge and left for a while) don’t do crap against blue which hurts bad considering a huge amount of mp decks are blue burn and control, and endazu also have their barbs, and vesp with their catapults means they really aren’t that vital anymore, they can certainly help in certain matchups but overall seem underwhelming, though the price reduction did make them still viable.

The Warship…. this card was a terror when it first came out, as it was the first 5hp 5hit ally in the game and spread death to those that faced it…. now that Colossal Aurochs (with overseers) and super cheap skele’s are floating around it has become somewhat more redundant, even with the price reduction… It’s not exactly a bad card, it’s still a terror to face, but its claws have dulled and with nothing but block hp and hits it just isn’t worth the huge cost a lot of the time, Endazu allies have their huge expansions curve that they can deal with a warship being around, red has its new buffed up defenses and burst allies, blue can just take the stupid thing, green can have trouble dealing with it, but with the new retaliate not as big a deal anymore since it’s a lock hit and thus gets intercepted… I dunno, it just doesn’t seem as good anymore

I think having the war allies do some other stuff than just a intercept + retaliate would be great, even if it was just an attack boost or a cancel/turn it would be revolutionary, the retaliate is good but also underwhelming since that all expanded just before the ignore intercept and now literally every faction has some way to retaliate, and when retaliate meets retaliate the war units end up suiciding and not properly protecting the units assigned to them, since that is virtually the only reason to have them.

Topic: War of Omens / Thought on Jesmai & suggested change

Well after reading the alternatives, the 2nd alternative would promote more of song and grave than allies imo, the first is nice but very very strong at the same time and make your allies like super BtV’s… I really like the third alternative, it seems like it would fit in very well and has some nice combos, the 4th alternative is a straight nerf which is not what she needs

Topic: War of Omens / Topic changed, I didn't understand mechanics properly.

It’s not a bug, think about this: that first attack got reflected over and over, meaning he was dead before he was ever fed again, the same first attack just kept bouncing

Those “Knight attacks” are actually just reflects, you should have lost only 1 food too

Topic: War of Omens / Endazu are bullies

Well the other thing about barge is it says on discard (not death) meaning gusting your own barge is a perfectly legitimate strategy, you can use seals to bump it up then gust it, redrawn it’ll keep its charges until gusted/killed again which cn make it put out some insane number of skeles every time you do

Topic: War of Omens / Re-word Shepherd

The “Herd” tab renaming has been brought up multiple times, whenever “Herd” is mentioned it means the “Herd of ___” cards, not every card in the herd tab, shepherd is not bugged, gave 1 res for the herd of boars but the war rat is not a “Herd”, they are considering changing the tab name already and probably will within the next few weeks
