Also glad to see you're "back".
I stumbled into @Stexe in runeterra a few months ago, that was a blast from the past
Hope all you old cardhunters are doing well!
Yeah, and you just barely beat me on my 6 out of 7 win streak in a Gauntlet match... =(
is runeterra good? okay i'll sign up ;X plz carry me ty
It's not bad. I climbed to Diamond 4 or Diamond 3 in beta and was considering going for Master. Probably could have done it since my win rate was like 60%... but it was a huge grind and I had a lot of grad work to finish at the time. Wish it wasn't so random at times, but overall it is a fun game for what it is.
I'm a big fan, though mainly because I have a fair bit of downtime where the only gaming option is mobile. It might be my favorite take on an MtG style card game yet.
Some things I really like about it:
uses a shared turn system like card hunter, which adds a ton of strategic depth compared to similar games like Mtg or Hearthstone (do you rush your attack before they have a chance to play more units? build your board and swing with all you've got? try to bait them into emptying their mana before you pull off a tricky move? etc)
has a neat little spell mana system where you can carry over up to 3 mana between rounds, but that mana can only be used to play spells. Super tight mechanic
mobile client is solid (compared to mobile hearthstone which is still buggy as heck despite being out for years)
Meta is pretty darn diverse, and there's usually 5-10 decks viable at masters at any given time. I've only hit masters once because there were no rewards for it in the past, but the latest update finally added cool ranked rewards so it's much more appealing now
Maybe the biggest one: probably has the most generous collection scheme in any multiplayer digital card game I've played. There's basically no need to spend real money on your collection even as a f2p, and you can build a top tier deck within about a week of starting. The cosmetics are neat if you still want to throw some money at the game.
Great to see you here, @Vakaz !
Is AA going to be revived?
Will be interesting to see. I expect that the new devs are looking at balance and considering what to do with game, but this part seems easy to manage. AA items can address the balance issues a little bit (I'm thinking items like Chekhov's Dirk as a check on Monstrous Hide, etc). I think Flax is back, too, working with/for Knights of Unity?
I have no plans to revive AA currently. I don't have the time or attention to maintain it as a volunteer effort as I used to. Perhaps that'll change in the future—I am stretched pretty thin right now, but it's not permanent. I also can't speak to TKOU's plans
Sorry you're stretched thin, bro, but
Since I figured out CH wasn't going away, I started working toward max usable of legendary items.
I'm currently maxed on 247 of 381, and the last things I need are new legendaries, particularly arcane items. I hope to complete this before the Earth crashes into the Sun. (Give or take 45 minutes.)
Wow, that's impressive. I had max usables for Epic and below before Mitter came out and it took forever.
I solemnly swear to never add a legendary arcane item to the game via AA ever again
Great to see you guys! It's kinda like 2013 all over again, except I'm feeling way older.
Give me a sec, and I'll fetch the Snobbit Pipe!
Uh oh, sounds like you got competition . I am at 297 legendaries at max usuable. I am so close on so many, but there are a few outliers (Brin's Spiked Rod still only have four) that may never get filled up.
Aloyzo's Arsenal and a couple more things are on our "to revive" list, so don't worry about that.
Nice. Love that you'll be involving the community in stuff again. =)
