While I am still a little too unexperienced about competitive meta Balance, I mostly agree with what has been said about both cards. Without going into balance discussions, I personally dislike competitive RNG based cards (such as the design of Ixxi), as it adds no value to actual high tier gameplay and will only feel like playing Casinostone.
That said, I think the art is great and good incentive of releasing new cards. Looking Forward to further card reveals.
Post-Reborn Player Reception and Promo Codes!
Reborn patch 2.0 was launched as a foundation update to Infinity Wars, setting the stage for recurring updates more often than just once every six months. We introduced an improved experience in the store and with pack opening, along with a better Draft interface. Overall the reception from players was positive and our team is happy we could please you! A few major bugs got thru but we've been stomping on those pretty rapidly, and more fixes are under way. Players have also been adamant about the DLC contents and pricing, too!
Not exactly sure if calling us adamant is a compliment or insult.
Good work though Overall. I now only wish for a way to turn off Background animations for pack opening (very gpu intensive, low framerates guaranteed).
Also, may I inquire an Option to purchase 1 and 5 Rift Tokens in the store? I'd like to be able to gift some to friends to try out drafting (not just via promocode) or gift them as giveaways. Buying 10 as giveaway or gift for trying out is too expensive imo. Would be really nice.
As a thank-you to everyone, new players or old, feel free to use the promotional code IWREBORN for some miscellaneous goodies, redeemable once per account. Regarding old codes, they will now all be discontinued; this does include the code that starts with T9, and we know that one has been passed around recently. Rest assured that we will be doing more promotional codes in the future, you have not heard the last of them.
Great promocode! I really mean it. Wish I had this when I came back. Improves the NPE immensely. Please remember to advertise your future promocodes on all social medias aswell!
The Forums, they need an update!
Yes they do. I’ve been moving sections around so much, you might say I have been playing “shuffle board.” Ha. Ha. I’m so punny. Being serious, my objective is to maintain the different sections we have while simplifying navigation. Many of you, new or old, are nodding your heads right now about how extensive our boards are. So far with my adjustments, Dev updates are at the top of the board followed by the main IW discussions and community-focused areas. As of right now it should be easier to navigate the categories and sub-boards overall. I’m almost done with phase one, and I’ll provide an update about this later in the week. The next step will be more sub-board sorting and the ongoing, massive process of moving a ton of thread topics around so everything looks neat and clean. I love this project, having had experience doing this very thing for a large group in the past. By the way, any current links to forum topics should be intact.
I'm still a bit confused myself where to go, but mostly because I'm used to the old system. I guess in a few weeks, I'll be able to give you a full correct evaluation of how good the new forum sorting is. Definitely an A for effort so far though.
The Card-Trading Experience
The trade window. It’s a feature integral to any trading card game. Ours has not been worked on in some time, and we recognize that it is time to start thinking about how to improve it in terms of stability and features. Some fixes are already planned for existing issues (stability). From there, we want player feedback on what features you think are most important to add or enhance in the trading interface. We know some of the requests, such as a notation of how many soulbound copies you have (so you know how many non-soulbound copies you can trade away while still having a full set, etc.). I have started a thread in the forums where we will be aggregating all feature requests, and sort them by player demand, whether the feature is essential or a nice little extra, time to implement, etc. You can click here to throw in your opinion. Yes, you may reply by simply posting a link to an existing suggestion thread relating to the trade interface specifically - just add a single sentence description of the request. I’ll collate results and give it to our team~
While this is very important, may I please ask to put a higher priority on enhancing the Deckbuilder first? From what it seems, it doesn't. If enhancing the Deckbuilder and making a decent Collection Manager currently has a higher priority, then ignore this comment.
As for trading enhancement (I won't mention bugfixes):
- Display soulbound cards (you already have this covered)
- Prompt to remind me that X card is used in one of my decks, if I undercut the required quantity for the deck (example, I need 3 Skraars for a deck and have 4, but want to trade off 2 Skraars).
- Trading Post/Auction House where you can put up cards and other People place offers or trigger buyouts
- Crafting System (I know a superb way of executing a non-abusable system (especially for bots), lemme know if interested)
- Multi-Sorting. I'll explain details if interested.
- Implement the annoying rattle sound the goblins of Grimgots in Harry Potter use to scare the Dragon. Should play everytime someone adds a card. jk
Just let me know which part interests you and I'll go further into detail about it.
Our community has always been fantastic all-around. At Yodomare we notice that, feeling very proud. I would like to mention that I'll be doing my part to make sure the community gets the attention it deserves. This will come in multiple forms. For one, community contests and player-organized events will get more notice from us via social media (we'll share/retweet some of your advertisements if you let us know, or if you tag us for example).
Oh, can I shamelessly bug you for my upcoming 24-hour stream then (unless it doesn't Count as player-orgnized Event)?
In the new forum rework, there will be a clear section available solely for community events. From the Card Design Challenge to your 24-hour giveaway streams, it'll be easier for our community members to find out what events are happening.
As a short reminder, don't Forget to add some kind of button ingame that links to the IW section of Twitch (not only the official IW channel): https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Infinity%20Wars
