    Thanks for the submissions everyone!
    This month we're doing something a little riskier than usual, and making an exception to print a new card.

    I'll be keeping an eye out for any serious issues this introduces, but in the meantime, enjoy a new toy ;)

    This month's winner is @Pyrious! Congratulations & thanks!

    Acid Pool! I do wonder whether it will stir up the meta or PvE, the token cost is pretty low so it's slottable in a lot of modules but the item itself is lacking somewhat in pure damage output.

    Congrats to @Pyrious for taking a risk that paid off!

    I bet the Defensiveness will scare a lot of people off to change things too much, but it might help a Hex Of Dissolution focused team...

    Congrats to Pyrious, especially for getting 25 twice on an item... took me an embarrassingly long time to spot it though!

    @mckeen: In a way thrice, since Defensiveness uses a 5x5 area (although I guess it's more accurately 24, heh).

    Very nice, @Pyrious, congratulations. $:^ J (I can't help but wonder if this'll help cycosurgeon's efforts...)

    And in case you're remotely curious, @Flaxative, when I changed my entry to a level 25 item, I was gonna go "25 Seconds to Midnight" when I realized I could say either "25 Seconds Until Midnight" (which I used) or "25 Seconds to Mitternacht" (which I feared would be too obscure) in order to get 25 characters in the name, too. Lol. $¦^ b

    My humble suggestion for the next Arsenal competition would be that we take one of the unused art assets to make a new card. Perhaps the background color could be left indeterminate so that entrants in the competition could decide whether they were suggesting an: attack, assist, block, boost, handicap, movement, or utility. I imagine the card would be rare, like Ready To Strike so all that would need to be determined would be the card rules, card name, and possibly card quality. After a winner was determined Blu Manchu could itemize appropriately as they did last time with card creation competition.
    If we did this I would recommend a couple of reminders:
    1: If a trait, does the card attach to yourself or not?
    2: If a block, armor, or boost does it have keep?
    3: If a boost, does it stay in hand or attach to yourself?
    4: If an attachment, what is the duration?

    Example: using the card art from launching blow http://forums.cardhunter.com/threads/unimplemented-cards.10925/#post-131315

    You know what, I've wanted to do more card contests for a while, but the last one was a bit too involved. I've talked to Jon and I think I have a plan for how to make this work.

    Stay tuned!

    @Flaxative Is it ok to suggest any Flavor Text in the submission?
     
  13. Flaxative

    Flaxative Party Leader Staff Member

    I guess it doesn't hurt, but a lot of cards won't have room for much if any flavor text (like if they have 2 boxes) so I didn't want to ask for it.

    Will it close before, after, or during the anniversary celebration?

    After.

    Is there any margin of error for card valuation? Say, if someone submits what should be a Gold- card as a Silver card, is Aloyzo willing to slightly alter its value?

    Yeah, we can make some adjustments if need be, and it won't be an auto DQ, but it's certainly a mark against the design compared to an equally exciting, equally viable card that is appropriately rated.

    In the design a card contest you have not listed assist card in the card type instructions. Does that mean we can't make an assist card?

    No, sorry - oversight. I've updated the contest thread to include white cards.

    Is there a mechanic in the game to allow cards to be retrieved from the discard pile, either in order or at random?
