Topic: Card Monsters / DA (Dragon Apocalypse) Auto Win Setups

@Juzzie

It fails because anti-air is not a 100% proc, it only has a 75% chance of triggering.

Topic: Card Monsters / New booster name is terrible

Really Nook? You found them to be less original than Thumper M, Thumper F, Nomad F, Nomad M? Personally, I think bmuell did a great job, most the new names made me chuckle, and they are DEFINITELY better than ninja 1, ninja 2, as they were on the sandbox IMO. Names rather than generic descriptions gives the cards a lot more character.

To look at it from a different angle..some players love the artwork in this game, some hate it, and some are pretty much indifferent. But I think that no matter where a person falls in that scale, they would agree that the game is better with the existing artwork than it would be if each card just had a white background with black text of the stats on it. The white background/black text is how I felt about expansion 4/5 card names before they got changed.

But to get back to the original point of the thread, agree, naming an expansion “epic” is just weird and clunky.

Topic: Card Monsters / Live Play Free Tickets?

You get 10 free tickets per day, to play ranked live matches. If you do not use them, you do not get additional, so nothing will happen if you have not used any tickets, but if you have >10 you will go back to 10.

Topic: Card Monsters / New Abilities - Resonate

When your opponent sacrifices something with crystal ability (dragons tear, collector, etc.) you also get bonus crystals. Amount you gain is however much resonate you have.

Topic: Card Monsters / Not Getting Crystals

They don’t go directly to inventory, they will appear in the crystal shop with a price of “free”.

Topic: Card Monsters / Get Rid of Tear and Judgement

Love the legendary idea Kevinke..some really nice ideas in this thread.

Sabaku, I’m sure Lamatiel has read/will read this. He is one of the edgebee CRMs, takes issues/concerns/ideas from us the players to the developers. He may not reply on each thread but I’m sure he reads them all.

Topic: Card Monsters / Get Rid of Tear and Judgement

Absolutely agree. At the very least they should not be allowed in live play, as they are unbalancing, especially now that they can be used in lower leagues. Plus, as you said, they are a couple of the most boring cards to play with..but if you have them and don’t, you are just handicapping yourself.

Topic: Card Monsters / Comment on current pricing structure

An energy system + a monthly sub = never another new player joining the community. You can already set yourself up with a monthly subscription, its just called a budget…if you choose to spend 15 or 25 monthly, or none, that’s your choice…and then you could choose your own “bonuses” for what you spend.

There are marketing reasons most the big-time MMO’s have been steering away from the subscription model and into free to play, pay to win. At least with this game, you can still succeed over enough time without ever spending a dime.

Topic: Card Monsters / Stuck on VG 8

Aryncho, you definitely do not need 2 or 3 epics/rares to get past it. When I did it, I had 3 level 2 commons, 2 level 3 commons and one level one rare (this was before you were able to put 7 monsters to a deck). Did not own a single epic. I cannot imagine its harder now with all the cool new abilities the expansions have introduced or the 2 additional levels you can get for your monsters.

Some things in the game NEED to be difficult, and for the most part the 8/9 levels are deck checks..if you cannot get past them, you’re not ready for what comes next, and need to go back and farm earlier areas for upgrades.

Topic: Card Monsters / Extending Alliance Chat History

Agree with pretty much everything here, but most especially the small token cost to start an alliance..that would go a long way towards stopping all the one or two player inactive alliances that are forever cropping up.

Topic: Card Monsters / Changes on duels

It SHOULD be very difficult to win all 20 on expert. If any more changes are made, it should be to make it so that easy gets no bonus crystals to begin, but everything harder than that does, including medium. To me, thats the whole point of easy/medium/hard/expert, so that people with strong decks can be challenged, why have any hard/expert if they are going to be so silly easy that 50 people tie for top score every day?

Topic: Card Monsters / What Booster to Buy

It went from 10k to 12.5 after your first one because a while back, the achievement reward for your first one was larger. Edgebee decided that instead of having a large achievement, they would just lower the price of the first pack purchased and also lower the achievement an equal amount, so it works out the same as before, but new players have an easier time saving for their first.

Topic: Card Monsters / What Booster to Buy

It was bad advice, should not buy any basic boosters at all, waste of gems, and only buy as many advanced as you MUST to get through if you get stuck on story mode, and no more than 2 or 3..any gems you put towards boosters should go towards master or expansion. Other than a couple equips, the only really worthwhile things in advanced are tanks and healers, and you will replace any tank you get from them soon. Any card you need from basic/advanced booster will also come out of master.

Topic: Card Monsters / New Player, Just Hit the Forgotten Ruins Needs Help

2-3 advanced packs, depending on what you get. Then save for masters, shouldn’t buy evo/t-crystals until later in the game, you get some “free” ones for common/uncommon during storyline, and by the time you have earned/used those you will have a much better idea what cards are worth getting more for.

The trouble with saving for master pack without getting any advanced is 2-fold..what you are already running into, plus sometimes the master packs rare/epic may be something that doesnt help your deck very much anyways..in the very long run, you may be better off never spending gems for advanced, but later in the game the 5k wont seem like so much to have “wasted” and it will make your early game alot easier/funner.

Topic: Card Monsters / Live Play Bug thread

RosieT, surrenders do not currently count towards your statistics. Not sure if that is intended or a bug, but Lamatiel said on alliance billboard its known when I complained about it there. Makes the players who are so quick to surrender alot more frustrating to play against though heh.

Topic: Card Monsters / assault rank points

Stahlgewitter has missed one flank, perhaps 2 I havent been online when most the assaults have ended so not positive.

Either way, if XGMR has been doing as stated, they would be WAY more than 2 points ahead of us by now lol.
