Community Events & Contests / [CDC] Rig the deck
« on: January 06, 2018, 06:42:11 AM »
Design a card which interacts with the opponents deck.

Current examples in the game are Genesis Spy which adds useless tokens to their deck, USS Enterprise which steals a card from their deck and I guess Martyr of Chaos which swaps your decks and makes all the cards in their deck cost 10.

That said your card doesn't necessarily have to change the opponents deck or its cards at all, for example you could have a character card that has higher stats the smaller your opponents deck is or the higher the number of ability cards in their deck or something.


Card can be whatever type you want and have whatever effect you want as long as it either affects or reacts to the cards in your opponents deck in some way.


Deadline is the 23rd of Jan.




--- Card Design Challenge Rules ---

Suggestions / Future mechanic ideas [Updated list]
« on: October 31, 2017, 08:51:18 AM »
Based on the thread started by Pelagoth http://forum.lightmare.com.au/index.php?topic=65983
Not trying to steal it or anything, but the main list was just missing too many abilities and Pelagoth hasn't been online for the past year.
If there's any issues or if I missed anything or any suggestions just PM me and I'll make edits.

So here's the updated version with some categorization, duplicates removed, slight re-writes for consistency, clarity and grammar/spelling and some examples/explanations (where provided).





Suggested Keyword Mechanics

Community Events & Contests / [CDC] I'll Do It Later [CLOSED]
« on: June 25, 2017, 06:47:55 AM »
Card Design Challenge – I'll Do It Later

Design a card which triggers a delayed effect once deployed/played.

The card must have an effect that happens X turns after the card is deployed/played.
(like Tome of the Dead or Eaten by Zombies)

The card can have whatever types/stats/abilities/keywords/etc you want.

The delayed effects can be positive or negative. (or both)

The card can have effects that aren't a part of the delay, but it should still have a majority of its effects, or its main effect, triggered by a turn delay or a counter counting down to 0. (or up to X)

The delay can be a static turn count (like tome of the dead) or it can be dynamic (like brief visit to torment).

A dynamic delay can be defined by anything you want when the card is deployed.
(eg the turn delay could be the number of characters in play when the card is played)
Just try to make sure it can't be set to 0 when the card is deployed.
(or at least not unless there are some pretty rare or difficult to set up circumstances)

Are the delayed effects dependent on the card still being in play?
(aka do they still go off if the card is destroyed/removed)
Unless specified I'll assume that 'counters' like tome are dependent, while 'in X turns' is independent.

If the delayed effect is dependent on the card still being in play what happens if it is temporarily removed from the game?
Unless otherwise specified I'll assume the counter is reset.

Can the delay be shortened/lengthened after the card is played?
Sure, just make sure that you can't reduce the delay to 0 on the same turn the card is played or extend the delay indefinitely.
The delayed effect should not be able to happen on the same turn as playing the card and should happen eventually unless the card is destroyed/removed or the game ends.


Deadline is the 11th of July at 7:00am IWT

Suggestions / Idea for next promotional set
« on: March 23, 2017, 11:16:41 AM »
Over time the fans of this game have hosted quite a large number of card design contests (see Hall of Fame) and we've accumulated a decent number of fan-made cards that many would argue could (or should) exist in the game, without being too out of place.

Imagine if the game devs and/or card designers picked out one or two dozen of their favorite cards and actually put them into the game (with new art and maybe some small tweaks) as a non-ranked non-riftrun promotional set, like the omni and star trek cards.

It'd be really interesting to play with a set of fan-made cards, and not just for the people that designed the cards, everyone would be able to not just see, but interact with, a part of what the fan community has created and from inside the game itself no less.

Not expecting anything, just putting it out there. ;)

Community Events & Contests / [CDC] Minorities [CLOSED]

Card Design Challenge – Minorities

Design a card which makes use of one of these subtypes:
Elemental
Aberration
Siren
Slime
Cow

The card can be one of the subtypes and/or interact with one of the subtypes.
(though you should avoid making a card that's just "all subtype characters have +x/+y" like pack leader)

Aside from that I'm not looking for anything particularly specific so take whatever direction you like.

Deadline is the 15th of March at 8am IWT

Suggestions / New possibilities for faction combinations
« on: January 29, 2017, 02:08:07 PM »
Basically the idea is we can do more with the 'OR' type cards than just single purity.



The number in the middle signifies how many commanders the deck must have that belong to either of the factions shown.

A '1' card is the same as the current 'OR', only requiring 1 commander of either faction.

A '2' card requires 2 commanders of either purity.
(eg 'OS 2 FD' can be used in OS/OS/ANY, FD/OS/ANY, and FD/FD/ANY decks)

A '3' card requires 3 commanders of either purity.
(eg 'OS 3 FD' can be used in OS/OS/OS, OS/OS/FD, FD/FD/OS and FD/FD/FD decks)


Needless to say this would open up more possibilities for card faction groupings, allowing cards to be used in multiple factions without sacrificing the balancing quality of double/triple purity requirements.

Suggestions / Add faction icons as 'smileys' in the post editor
« on: November 11, 2016, 11:22:19 AM »
So basically in the forum post editor we'd see

 :) ;) :D ;D >:( :( :o 8) ??? ::) :P :-[ :-X :-\ :-* :'(

above the textbox, people could just click on one and boom, faction icon in the forum post instantly.

Could use simple two letter codes for them like :WP  :CV  :DD  etc

There's a lot of info online on how to add custom smileys to your forum so it shouldn't be hard to do and would be cool for all the users.
Hell I could do it myself if I had access.

Card Design Challenge – Type Change

I want to see your designs for a card that becomes a different type as part of some sort of transformation/transition.


The only existing card I can think of off the top of my head that does something like this is Weaponize, and that just turns an artifact into a textless, generic token.
I'd like to see some more interesting cards using this mechanic on themselves, not just turning a separate card into some token.

Just to clarify it's TYPE, not sub-type (human, beast, etc) or super-type (unique, unlimited), I'm talking Character, Artifact, Location, Ability, Mission. (using Ability or Mission would probably be more difficult but if you can make it work that's cool)

The change could be one-way or reversible, and while it may be practically identical mechanics wise I'm not really looking for a card that is used just to create another card, basically it should be a continuation of the same object/being/effect, just in a different form, more or less.

(Make sure you keep in mind that if it can transform into a character multiple times its stats will be reset each time, unless otherwise specified in your entry)




--- Card Design Challenge Rules ---

2) All that wish to participate submit their card design. Each participant may only submit one entry per challenge, you may however edit your post as many times as you wish till the deadline.
3) If you edit your post you should make an additional post in this thread informing of the edit to make sure that the updated version of the card will be judged. The post should contain the full updated card details as well as a brief summary of what changed from your original submission.
4) After an announced deadline the Judge decides a winner. The winner then becomes the Judge for the next round.
5) All entries submitted before the deadline are guaranteed feedback, either in this thread or in another detailed feedback thread.

Bug Reporting / Tulio + Swift strikes = ???

Tullios ability simply gives multi-strike 3, rather than adding extra attacks like swift strikes does.

General Game Discussion / Contest winning avatar giftable
« on: March 20, 2016, 07:14:08 AM »
It's cool that the contest winning avatar was put up on the store for 1IP, but is it wise to let that be 'giftable' since it's such a low price? (and unlike card packs you don't get any use whatsoever out of multiples)

I can just imagine someone gifting a few hundred copies of the avatar to someone. ::)


(though on this note why are ANY of the cosmetic things giftable? you have no idea if the other player already has it or not, if you gift them something they already have it's useless to them and a waste of currency for you, they can't even re-gift it to someone else.)

Deck Building / Air Force dojo (2DOD/COV)
« on: March 11, 2016, 03:00:54 AM »
Had an idea for a deck based on a card combo and just threw it together, I haven't really used it much in pvp since I'm still kinda getting back into pvp, but so far with testing I think it's pretty cool.

Basically you just defend while generating decent flyers, if you really want to you can save them all up for a OHKO.



The idea is you use DOD and Rita tokens to defend, while (if convenient) sacrificing spare small units with the Summoner and removing units from the graveyard with Xi, while also removing flyers you have with Dojo, when you think you have enough stockpiled you can then spawn the flyers in and do some decent damage or defend if necessary.

Essentially by sacrificing and then removing the same character you can turn 1 character into a 3/3 flyer and a 4/4 flyer, with the Dojo then buffing them to 7/7 and 8/8.

Combine this with Xi Ascended's and Hellkeeper's 6/6 flyers (becoming 10/10s after dojo) and it can be pretty strong.


Any thoughts/advice?

It's built around the old version of Veroria, so it could probably use an update.

Suggestions / Slow keyword idea
« on: February 29, 2016, 03:48:08 AM »
I know there used to be a Slow keyword that made the character Exhaust every other turn, but this is a little different.

Slow - This card exhausts for one more turn than usual.
(originally was double but then thought of cards like daode and hermit)

Could be a useful effect for future cards.

Basically if a card were to have Slow by default it would be exhausted for 2 turns after being deployed and then would be fine, until it uses a 'Pay X, Exhaust' ability or is targeted by an ability which exhausts other cards, which would make it exhausted for 2 turns.

Could be very useful with abilities that give Slow to a targeted card, as you can quite literally 'slow down' an opponent who is repeatedly using an exhausting ability.

Just an idea.

General Game Discussion / Sick of Faction advertisers?

Suggestions / IW bug ticket emails should include the "Summary"
« on: February 16, 2016, 07:50:27 AM »
When you get email responses to bug reports it just has a ticket number, if you've made multiple reports then (without a public database of bugs listed by ticket number) you don't really have a way of knowing which bug the email is talking about.

Basically it would be helpful if the content or subject of the email would have the summary from the report you submitted, or the bug name from the bug tracking system.
