Topic: Rise of Mythos / Sorting of Decks

nothing? I constantly delete decks just so I can navigate easier through the multitude of strategies and boss decks that I use. I also commonly create new decks to test out, and I am able to use all 4 classes. I’ve made my own tag system as well. I’m sure many others do that because of this, and this is no ‘nothing’ issue.

it’s obvious even to a new player that the deck menu is a salad, it probably takes minimum effort to add alphabetical sorting and for the money this game pulls in it would be common decency that we have this.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Big problem with rush/critable heros

true, the randomness does add some interesting aspects to strategy, but I disagree with both your statements;
look at Magic the Gathering ; there’s only a few random chance kind of cards in the game (flip a coin system or action some random card) that may or may not be used, and that’s it. there’s no messy volatile system and it’s easily one of the greatest card strategy games out there.
look at chess; white at start only has a theoretical advantage, but if black responds correctly the equilibrium is maintained. again, no randomness and again one of the greatest mind games. so no, I disagree; randomness is not needed and I personally find it unwelcome.

I think what additionally helps the randomness in this game be particularly painful is the fact that you start with only 2 cards. this in short means that in case your opponent launches a Fenris for example, and you have a very limited number of responses in your hand, a Fenris going apeshit with critical and block (you put a creature down, it gets critted. you hit him with a skill, he blocks half the damage, etc.) will very likely cost you a ton of health or even the game. I consider this aspect of the block/crit ability to be a complete strategy fail and a chaotic mess.

aren’t a lot of us enjoying Mage or Ranger just to avoid this kind of nonsense which affects damage dealing skills?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Big problem with rush/critable heros

I’d be happiest if crit on hero was removed and crit and block in general were removed or reduced to a very low amount, like a tenth of what it was now. while a little amount of randomness and luck is acceptable I suppose, a serious strategic game is very unlikely to happen with such high chance odds.

I personally think I enjoyed the game the most when I was starting out – we all had such low stats that when a crit or block happened occasionally you could laugh it off. nowadays I count on increasing my crit rate so I always hit for 10 scorch and get it back, or I get hit by a buffed mifzuna for normal damage and my opponent is ragestorming me about how he didn’t crit me, like whaaaat is going on here? or what about when you block a very wounded werewolf with something of like 20hp only to have that werewolf block twice and crit twice and still land a hit on you?

I mean I guess the logic “if you wanna change the game so much, the game is probably not for you” works for every complaint, but I really miss the days when I didn’t get angry if I didn’t crit or block. things were far more strategy-oriented then.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Sorann in PvP Shop and 1.5 Release Date

I don’t see why they don’t want to and didn’t release these cards yet.
I’ve already got a Ryli and I have little clue on what will I get next since the other cards don’t appeal to me and I’m sure plenty other players are in the same situation.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [To Gamefuse] Bugs & Fixes

I doubt any of this will ever get a fair look, but here it goes;
1. holding a horse item in inventory while entering a battle can keep the horse icon on your mouse. I would assume other items can also stick to your mouse like this. to fix it, finish the battle and return to your inventory where you can place the item down.
2. I had situations where the enemy would attack me with Hrafn and some other stuff. I would charm the other stuff and destroy Hrafn, but the charmed creatures would keep the Wild March for the rest of the game even with Hrafn clearly not in the field. I would assume that all buffs are kept like this.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Ancient Den How to beat it ?

dug a topic from the graveyard there. :) this was going on when Den was still new and we were still learning the ropes.

well, to recap it all;
- nimble spears are still good, +1 range makes them less likely to move. Crossbowman even better.
- nimble rebels/samurai are nice tanks.
- don’t use Asterion.
- zeeva is quite useful. dread phantom is the poor man’s alternative. (you must take in count not all people have DS, Velyn, Zeeva, etc)
- battlefield skills override magma and portals.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Ancient Den

as a mage it’s best to focus on killing off enemy units especially in the last rush (which makes them all weaker) than making shitty defenses. also skills to kill the Brimstone.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Fight Fire with Fire

the problem with using those cards on her is that they’re Warrior cards, and Warriors suffer disadvantage in PVP when playing full decks, which is obviously where a ARK Mage belongs.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Stuck.

you really have to stop blowing all of your earnings Vegas style.

what do I suggest? well, first off, gather rubies. sell Epics and garbage Legendaries; when a sale comes that you can’t resist or it really is a promising one, show that little bit of willpower and only spend rubies on it. sell some useless cards everyday – I’m telling you, I earn about 200 or more rubies a day like this. this way you get rid of both lame cards and participate in sales for pretty much free. Master packs are also very luck based, so again – only buy them with rubies.

I don’t need to say that the Auction has been a mess for me as well, my problem being that I haven’t seen a card I want in like a month/months. but yeah, there’s no better alternative than sit on the gold, let it grow, and wait it out. Usually if some whale quits there’s like a whole arsenal available in the shop, that’s like Christmas times especially for my VIP0 leeching ass.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Is dragon draw working correctly?

it’s obviously programmed to display Tharymaskus among the last cards in the spin just before switching to some green or common, typical bait and switch. we ALL see Tharymaskus legend just before it stops spinning, so if it was a fair game odds are we’d all have so many copies of them you couldn’t even sell em in Auction.

and the exploiting begins. Please read the green chat before escalating the ticket.

On that note, I guess you guys better start investigating the claims as a whole if that’s possible.

I just noticed this.. That’s sad. You’d think what gets said in the guild stays in the guild. Hope they kick you.

Ideas like “what’s said in the guild stays in the guild” are how dirty guilds come into existence, and I think the one I’m in deserves better than that. I tried to reason with him at length before posting, and told him about the post after I did. You can have your standards, and I’ll have mine. Question: Are you in Celestial2?

Nope, not even on your server. Just believe loyalty to the guild you’re in should come first. Not reporting each other or pointing out when one wants to abuse something. Neither I or anyone should have to worry about their comments being shared. In my opinion you were in the wrong.
If you were in my guild, I’d either have you kicked or leave. You bring shame to your guild. Not the other guy.

You value loyalty higher than personal and guild integrity, and would rather see your guild devolve into a collection of people looking for the next new system to exploit, than to forsake the privacy of chat that can be seen by up to 40 people at a time. If he didn’t want it seen, he shouldn’t have talked about it in guild chat in the first place. It’s not my fault that you’re short-sighed and don’t understand basic cause-effect relationships, that doesn’t give you any sort of moral high ground here – quite the opposite. A guild which you would leave would be a guild improved for your absence.

well said. also, the rules of a guild are set within a guild, so if hotshot’s guild doesn’t allow this kind of behavior – then he’s right.

I was going to comment on this ridiculous evolving of the situation, but really gave up when I just sat back and looked at this whole event, from the poor execution, exploiters, ticket/forum spamming and the mostly garbage cards in the pile that mostly aren’t even angel. can I cancel my ticket?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Legendary cards

Zombie Captain is an amazing tank and great to use. 3 armor is great and 4cd is a nice balance to reanimate and 3/10.

the rest are mostly meh, Marksman is weak to runes, lizard is verrrrrry slow, priestess is cool but vulnerable with her low hp, ghost is also slow…

Completely OP. And none of the cards is unique, so you could play 3 rangers and 3 protect in one turn. Amazing…

see, that’s the spirit I was looking for right there!

But Yes maybe it Could use its own Topic.


very agreed, but from what I’ve read above it’s just people trashtalking on Sanctuary so far. Not everyone wants to rush (especially if they have weaker cards or play with people with weak cards) and going to a topic called “Dragon Lair Hard Sanc Reflection Strategy” to comment that Sanctuary is a crutch (I agree with that commentator, it’s just in the wrong place as well) is just stupid.

I’ve personally been playing it mostly with randoms, and the best course of action with the weaker ones was to teach them the wall strategy.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / STOP RIGGING PACK ODDS!

the previous Mythos packs were incredibly different than before. I was buying the Mythos packs when Zeus and the rest of those hoodlums were up, and from 5 packs most had Mythos cards, but no legendary for me. Encouraged by this I bought 20 of the next Mythos packs hoping for Medusa or Pan to have fun with, since I had rubies to throw in the garbage anyway, and from 20 packs I got no legendary and only a single Minotaur. In discussion with other players, they all pretty much agreed that the second Mythos packs were bad. I still haven’t seen a single Pan in game.

Also, just look at that dragon spin thing in the events; while it spins you’ll see more the legendary card than the normal and common ones you will suddenly end up with when it stops. I personally am pretty sure it actually stopped at the legendary once for me, and then switched to a green instead. Fucking money bait.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Humans

Humans have some pretty nice units, but in this game in most cases it’s best to mix up a lot from everywhere. I’ve met some players that specialize humans (mostly around the top200 or under, even a 2vs2 vs 2 pure humans) and I felt they mostly lacked immediate firepower in their deck as they were getting dismantled by the usual Fenris and whatnots while their Faith and Heroics were still at low numbers.

You’re still at a level where pretty much “anything” works, but around 40-50 your humans will be put to some proper tests.
