    You've had it since a few days ago. I noticed that you were sitting at 249 likes, and gave you another one. ^_^

    Are there currently 4 different leagues or is one of the characters not up for grabs yet?

    Now that name change seems odd. Perhaps partially an error? Look at the "trophy points" ranking:

    http://forums.cardhunter.com/members/?type=points

    Cerulean Dragon rank appears to have been replaced completely with Thaumaturge. I'm not going to argue if they wanted to rename some ranks, but it's not currently a "graduation" from one to another, so dragons have been evicted from this forum. Except for me. Oh, and would you look at Jon: they added a trophy level just for him. "Everyone Likes You."

    . . . Woo, you posted while I was typing, Wozarg! Yes, there are 4 different leagues. Direct info links at the bottom here:

    Unless for some reason they're not running one of the four.

    As long as there are appropriate Miner, Warrior, Hero, Shaman, and Priest levels, I'm sure everyone would be fine with it. Quite sure.

    I was hoping that the highest tier of points would let me take a custom title, but now that Flaxative has joined Sir Knight at 113 points, I see that the ladder actually caps out at Thaumaturge. Oh well... :rolleyes:

    I was surprised today when, after defeating all the new adventures, I started doing the "no death" challenges and I didn't get AoA items. I thought that the new modules' challenges would also have that "only AoA items" policy, specially when they are only doable once (meaning that you can't abuse them). I was hoping to get some guaranteed AoA rares doing the challenges, so I'm a bit disappointed.

    For tournaments, if you tie, isn't it punishing to make the players keep playing for tiebreaker points? It's against the ethos of the people in the tournament first having an advantage.

    Agreed. It would be better if the tie breaker was "number of stars collected minus number of stars collected by your enemies in the tournament games".

    Sorry, I'm probably being slow, but I didn't understand that. Are you saying "people who start playing sooner, instead of waiting until the last minute, should have an advantage?"

    Either way, since these games are played only against other people in the league, there DOES need to be some incentive to keep playing. Players who wait until the last minute must have other folks still in-game so that they can play and get their basic wins/losses done.

    Speaking of which, if someone loses all four matches and thus has no guaranteed prize, is there any reason to keep playing? Suppose four out of five people in the pod get zero wins. This means that one of them, technically, is "in second place" and could get 25 pizza. Does playing for tiebreaker points among those with zero wins get them anything?

    Unless I'm mistaken, you need at least one win to get any prize.
     
  13. Sir Knight

    Sir Knight Sir-ulean Dragon

    Yes, I know. Hence the question of whether there is ANY reason to play anymore. It's discouraging in a way that the designers probably didn't intend, as I elaborated when I wised up and found the thread for it.

    Oh my oh my, you got me here :)
    I am back again. Got your Mail, logged into Card Hunter and ... wow! You've done it again.
    It took me only one night to think about it and now I am the proud owner of the expansion pack and playing Card Hunter again. ^^

    Guilds? :cool: Leagues? :eek: new Expansion? :D a loot fairy? :confused:
    The last huge thing I am remembering was the Peasant Tournament, I think.
    It seems I missed a lot since December 2013.

    Someone care to give me the short version? :p

    I think you've about got it.

    Guilds: Came first - If you're a guild member you gain or lose points for your guild every time you play a MP match. If it's against a member of another guild there's more points at stake. They're mainly "hang out groups" and bragging rights.

    Loot Fairy: Came next - before the new build release on Friday there was one adventure per a day (same adventure for everyone) that would give better loot after the last stage of the adventure. It was marked by Gary popping up and saying "Oh! What was that?" Since Friday, it is still showing up, it's just moving at a different time. To help chase the loot fairy each day check out this site.

    Expansion: Released Friday with new cards and new items as well as some new Treasure hunts.

    Leagues: Like mini tournaments, compete for chests, pizza, gold, figures or whatever else they offer for a given league. Can get more info here.

    And of course, welcome back!

    Is "Loot Fairy" what it's officially called, or just what you guys have been calling it?
    From the little I've looked around, it kinda looks like that's just the title the players gave this phenomenon... but knowing BM, I wouldn't be surprised at all to find that this was an actual fairy that's become cannon to CH lore, and I'm just really out of the loop now.

    It was referred to as a loot fairy in the commit logs.

    Ah. So it started from some sleuthy clues.

    Yeah, that's the same text as the commit message from the developer Twitter. They eventually show up as release notes (normal practise in software development).
