Topic: War of Omens / Cards that need nerf or buff

Lets talk about useless cards, or buffs.

Burglary is currently totally useless and I doubt any good MP player has it in its deck. Way to expensive for way to situational use.

Apothecary: hear heal is almost completely useless, since opponent is usually going for a kill. I only play her, if I got her stacked due to a Lackey and have tons of gold so I’m nosy what potion she might restock.

Hedge Guardian as well, his ability to spawn flowers is quite useless, as opponent will usually only take him down, when he gets to flowers as well. Ok, still makes him a 10 hitter fully upgraded, which is a lot. However Golem is usually better.

The Yarakeen, I kind quite argue why, I like stealing it when I’m metris, however I encounter very few decks having it. Why?

Harvest, nice idea, but why someone would do that? I get it could be used in combo with merkan guilds, but Vespitole decks either are ally based or redraw ressource based. If its ally based, why doing harvest? Why not Tithe or Spy Network right away to get something useful? If its ressource — go infiinite — based, then you don’t get Harvest, since you not going to have much units.

Warship — very expensive, very few people use it. Nowadays getting it dshot own or even stolen is too easy, it does not protect it does not retaliate.

The singular of dice is one die.

I think the card may be too weak. Maybe for 2 or 3 turn?

On the contrary, reducing the opponents options for 0 costs I’d quickly take that card into my Birondelle deck, sounds a bit overpowered even.

Topic: War of Omens / New cards ideas

I kinda tend to use my ideas for my projects instead of telling others what to do. Sharing a good idea now and then is fine, but I don’t like overdoing it.

One thing about your typesetting that subconsiouly annoys people is: you put in spaces before interpunctuation signs. Note how nobody does that. There is a space after the dot, and the comma, never ever before.

thank you crazedmoth, one thing to had. I consider it paradoxically funny lecturing somebody about enter and utterly failing at it.

One enter creates a “line break”. That’s not proper formatting. In strict type setting there is no line break, only new paragraphs. At kongregate forums this means two enters.

Instead of criticising (sorry for bad spelling) your ideas, I’m going to point out your other flaws.
First of all, I can’t read that because you have bad formatting skills. Using ENTER (the big button on the right of your letters) would make your posts much better.
Second of all, I’m a grammar nazi, so I highly despise every post with bad grammar and I apologize for all my spelling flaws, and I only have spelling flaws because English is not my native language. So yeah, please improve your grammar.
Third of all, post count matters. You shouldn’t try to prove other people wrong (unless you’ve got proof that they’re wrong), if they have bigger post count. I respect desiclope and the only thing I don’t like about him is that he sometimes doesn’t start sentences with capital letters.

Requesting lock.

Lamest post ever and I don’t feel like taking my time to point out all the issues that are wrong with it.

You win if the other heroes health is reduzed to zero or less, if that holds true for both at the same time, both win.

Topic: War of Omens / Most Powerful Cards Per Faction?

It all depends on the deck.

( Also it leaves the question open, what “most powerful” means. The one mist most effect, or the one that is included in most decks of that faction )

Topic: War of Omens / This AI deck needs adjusting

Previously I thought the AI cards are a precreated set where one is picked at random, but recently also saw some strange decks like a Jesmai without flowers, pedastals or veils, no magic, no sense? She spammed Unmaking and banishes on me. Lots of golems and Guardians, Peackocks, she had 99 life, but zero offense.

Just because a Wikipedia article only mentions trolling in the context of comment posting, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist in gaming OH WAIT I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE. :)

I suppose what you mean is actually called “griefing”.

Topic: War of Omens / Devs: PLEASE give 50 silver / exp to the victor of 1-3 turn games.

Absolutely Agree!

I so hate it when I’m in a trifecta quest, get plotted against somebody I now from a lucky opening sequence, cool thats a high chance win, then BAM disconnect!

Suggestion: Early disconnect, winner still gets it counted as win for quests, still gets some little silver/ingots (okay let it be less than a full 3+ turn game), Quiter gets nothing if quiting before round 3. Fair isn’t it?

Topic: War of Omens / *Suggestions*

Metris vs. Birondelle.

It is impossible to see in the other bank, which of her cards are “native” and which cards are “borrowed” by her ability. The distinction is important, since only the first can be truely misinformed, but Misinform reacts on both.

—> Make it possible to see which cards are native/borrowed.

Topic: War of Omens / Need help with Birondelle steal deck

Metris works only well with upgraded cards.
I’d remove the Wench in that deck, wont be alive much.
Ransacking Coins is risky against all factions but Metris, it makes them stronger as well. I personally don’t like Ransack much, too expensive, too random.
Robbery is a nice starter move.
Waylay is nice to have since it can remove nasty stuff.
I prefer infighting over mayhem, since it is cheaper and gives you the restock ability if options are low.
Healing is unnessary, even with steal deck, you are going for a faster win anyway. If the game takes too long, Metris loses.
Misdirect is a good option in all Metris builds, even those without underlings, its 4 Hitpoints difference for just 2 gold! (You dont get it, but opponents gets hit).
I recently liked putting Lackey in my Biro build. Not because multipling her restock chances are that good, but Lakey gives tons of options, all other Underlinks at disposal (but random) with just 1 card! I like.
I’m always undecided about Coup de Grace, its an awesome finishing move when stolen stuff, but very situational.

Topic: War of Omens / Mogesh FOTW? How does everyone deal with him?

I like to play Birondelle a lot, If I face a Mogesh I’d rather quit right away. Not that I’m sure to lose, its about 50/50 chance, but because I know, either way, it will be going forever. I’ll play 2-3 normal games in the same time.

Topic: War of Omens / Goat Outrider

In before lock, in an endeavor to clean up all the misconceptions :)

“gamblers fallacy” is something quite else than FabioF1 said. Its not that on the receiving side you think different of chances than being on the winners side.

gamblers fallacy is thinking when something happened, the next results will be more likely to be different. That is when I roll a die and get three times a six and give you the die, you argue rolling a six now is less likely than one in six, because “I used up all the sixes” Which is nonsense, its always one in six.

This is utter nonsense. The change of getting not more than 20 heads of 130 coin tosses (or at least 110 tails, depends how you see it, same result) is: 1.4957132459847117e-16. or 0.000000000000001495%
