General Game Discussion / Cthulhu Girl Needs Your Help!
« on: June 13, 2014, 05:54:32 AM »
Greetings Infinity Warriors! Ascension is nearly upon us and I have been waiting nearly as long for it as to make this request of you.

One thing I guess asked a lot is this: What are the probabilities of getting each level of rarity in a pack? I do my best to answer this question based on my own luck, but as a community we have the power to do much better.

If we had this information, people could make better decisions about buying draft decks, making trades, and purchasing packs. It's hard for one person to get a good sample to figure these numbers out, but the release of Ascension gives us a unique opportunity to gather a lot of this information all at once when a lot of packs will be opened at once.

I therefore request that anyone willing set aside a few packs at the beginning or end of their opening spee to record the below information and post it here or send me a message. I will be compiling all of it, doing some math, and posting it in a new thread for all to see. The more of it we can get, the more accurate our information will be!

Number of...
Packs recorded:

Thank you very much for anyone willing to do this! Good luck with your packs and have fun with Ascension!  ;D

*Edit: I'll also accept videos of pack openings if you don't want to tally the cards yourself. Or recordings of you speaking the cards or information out loud as you open them. Whatever gets me enough to calculate the stats works, provided it's in a format I can decipher.

I think 30 second per turn is enough but still provides a time constraint. That's taking into account the time required to click through the previous turn. It's not a hard value to tweak I think :P I bet if we all went into queue and tried to play all our turns as fast as possible and kept track of how long it took, we'd come up with enough data on what a good number is.

Suggestions / Speed Mode?

I know adding new modes is a ways off down the road, but I think it would be awesome to have a speed mode where players have a very limited time to play their turn and can't extend their turn. I honestly wouldn't really care of people just played mindless simple decks in it (probably a lot of Flame Dawn), I just want to go go go! :D

This is the reason that Kyrallic doesn't see a lot of play, especially in ranked. Most Sleeper vs Sleeper games with Kyrallic turn into long morale games unless you can win quickly after its played.

Tome of the Death on the other hand should go to whoever has turn priority.

I'm always willing to talk to anyone, new or otherwise ;D And there are at least half a dozen ways to reach me. Though people have to come to me if they want to chat, I don't really have time to go advertising >.<

I wrote this one just for fun, not looking for any prizes. Good luck to everyone in the contest!


The Fall of the House of Verore
By Cthulhu Girl

I still remember when Veroria towered over all the surrounding land. Its smooth gleaming white surface could be seen for miles. Around its highest peaks the constant beating of demon wings was silent to me as I stood just inside its seemingly impenetrable gate. Rita beckoned us forward; a sinful sleepy smile on her lips, the only thing more important to me than the racing of my heart. She led us into the keep, down hallways and winding staircases, passed rooms gleaming with power I had never felt before. My whole body tingled with anticipation, the thrumming of magic far more powerful than I had ever dreamed raced over my skin like Beasts of Burden in battle. Those were the days I wanted for nothing. Back then it was as if the thralls slit their own necks before you even found the spell you are looking for.

I even met Aleta once. I was a few years in at the time, and she came to present to us spell craft which could open portals to hell. I remember most vividly the way even the strands of her hair and robe seemed to faintly float on all the power gathered around her, the same way we gathered around her in awe. It was as if even the corridors parted slightly before her, and the world turned to put itself under her feet instead of her actually taking a step. One taste of it was enough, for all of us, we had to taste that power again. Even if it was not our own, we had to be in its presence. We drove the thrall flock dry within a week. Rita’s smile became ecstasy; our own power began to grow its own heartbeat.

My first portal opening lingers in my dreams. The smell of the dried blood in the ritual room, the whimpers of the thralls, the flickering light like wraiths upon the walls. None of the worshipers ever forget their first portal opening. It is a high you can only reach once. The whole room seemed to expand, the air crackle. The portal opened at first like a great black void. All the power rushed into it like a vacuum and then clicked into place with a vibration that trembled my bones and left my head with a horrible ringing sound. Hot foul smelling air rushed out, but the chosen to go through stepped forward with a confident smile. I had never seen a demon so close before. The texture of its skin and the color of its eyes made my skin crawl, but the pride that swelled in me filled me with an uncontained madness. I knew then why Rita smiled.

But then there were other rifts. Rifts not of Verorian design. They brought into our home disgusting creatures, with their technological filth and mindless inelegant slaughter. The forces outside our walls grew spiteful yet powerful. Old portals we’d left opened let in uninvited guests. We fell back amongst each other to the walls of Veroria, and lived a somewhat gleeful life devising new ways to deal with our problems. It was as if we had a second flock of thralls just outside the gates, with new and interesting interactions to all our old favorites. Veroria is my home.

And they stole it from me. They stole my thralls, my books, my ritual rooms, my bloody altars. They took Rita’s smile. They took Aleta. They took my Veroria. By my last breath I shall curse them. The others may have gone, but I am alive for this task and this task alone. Rita has taught me a great many things. Aleta has given me uncontrollable power. There is no force which will stop me from becoming their greatest creation. The ruins of Veroria shall be covered in her enemies’ blood. We were trained to be stronger than entire armies of men or beasts. These things are no different. They die all the same. I will kill them all the same. For Rita. For Aleta. For Veroria.

May they rest in pieces.

Oh god, you're going to assault my eyes even more x.x

You can't. That's makes normal queues too competitive and is thus only available for ranked play. Though we may see ranked versions of some of the other queue in the future :)
