Card Collecting Released
« on: September 27, 2012, 03:19:11 PM »


In March 2011 the Trading Card Game by itself was released. Now that the server is live, the whole Card Collecting aspect has been implemented.

There are many small details and changes compared to the past version, so at the top of my head:

  • All players receive the same starter deck. This deck has been carefully selected to ensure as much balance as possible among the different directions.
  • There is the option to play both a Fair and Custom deck battle.
  • Fair Deck battles are limited to 10 wins against the same opponent per 24 hours. Custom Deck battles are limited to 3 wins against the same opponent per 24 hours.
  • No stats are exchanged after beating the same opponent more than 3 times in a row, unless 6 hours have passed.
  • Booster Packs contain 5 cards, and are guaranteed to award cards of certain levels.
  • Every different card obtainable by booster packs are "printed" a specific number of times, and then deducted from until no cards of the same level are left, where the process repeats. This ensures rarity.
  • Card Trading is GUI based.
  • Only cards of the same level can be traded.
  • Wins and losses of both game modes can be seen within the Statistics menu.

Booster packs are sold at the same Card House just north of the Orphanage/Unstick Me where the Card Game is obtained.

This is how the card levels are arranged for each level booster pack:

Level 1 = 2,1,1,0,0
Total level = 4

Level 2 = 3,2,1,1,0
Total level = 7

Level 3 = 3,3,2,1,1
Total level = 10

Level 4 = 4,3,2,2,2
Total level = 13

A monthly rank for the Card Game has now been implemented, a player's ranks and points can also now be seen within the Statistics menu rather than profiles.
The winner's statue is located within the Card House, a trophy shall be awarded instead of a belt.

Should there be two separate statues for card players who have the most Fair deck wins and Custom deck wins?

Most people probably just play fair deck games right now, but eventually when people get more cards they'll probably play custom games as well. Thus it may be necessary to distinguish between the two.

On a less serious note, I protest any TCG rankings that don't include stats from the start of the release of the card game!

The deck manager UI would look better as a grid, maybe zoomed out for smaller cards. Scrolling through cards in sets of three is a drag.

I was going to make the rank Fair Deck only for next month.
Also right clicking the arrows scrolls faster.

I kinda agree with pojo here, having them as sets of 3 is a little annoying when you're trying to build your deck.  A grid of some sort would do very nicely.

Edit: Oh, and someone in the card shop explaining what's in each deck would be nice, too.
Edit2: Idk if it's a bug or not, but I've noticed that you don't get an MP for a skipped turn, and I remember it being like that in the original card game.

The point of the turn skip is to get more MP.

Exactly, but right now you only get MP for played cards, not skipped turns.

I'm confused, you get 1 extra MP at the start of a new turn, before you press skip. The point of skipping a turn is not necessarily to get extra MP.

I thought skipping was just if you had no safe plays, and -2 HP would be better than whatever you'd get by setting a card/worth not wasting a card
