    Since Flaxative doesn't want you to discuss submissions in the other thread (http://forums.cardhunter.com/threads/aloyzos-arsenal-discussion-thread.7746/), I figured I'd make this. Here you can discuss your submissions and get feedback. Please do not discuss the contest in general, any questions you may have for a specific month's contest, and any items Aloyzo has forged as a result of the contest. This is for current or future submissions only!

    Here's my current WIP submission for Aloyzo #4. Looking for some feedback and an item name suggestion. The theme is to "burn away buffs" and I figured it would be neat to have another source of fire damage on a Warrior outside of Fiery Stab (to proc all those annoying Combustible / Vulnerable users).
    1.) Stexe
    2.) NAME HERE?
    3.) Weapon
    4.) Cards: Mini-torch, Purging Strike, Purging Strike, Purging Strike, Purging Strike, Purging Strike

    Item Level: 4
    Rarity: Epic
    Token: None

    People were just discussing them in private or in the game client itself already. Why not just have an official place to swap ideas? What harm comes from it?

    Also, I figured you're all for non-violent protests. Well, here's mine! :-P

    Oh, harm would be a strong word for what might come of it.

    The only thing is, currently AA is set up as a competition that rewards an individual for their work.

    It seems impossible to maintain that structure in the face of this level of willful disregard for the contest organizer's desires.

    Not necessarily a problem at all, just means there won't be rewards for individuals going forward.

    Merry Christmas :)

    p.s. if you know me, you know I'm all about cooperation. I see no reason to maintain AA as a competition between individuals. Lo, the gates are open! Everyone, work together to make the best items. Go for it, please. This is a fantastic turn of events.
     
  6. Not serious I hope?

    Well, the only real reward from the competition is getting the item for free, an epic chest, and maybe your name as a blurb somewhere. Which is really nothing unless it is a Legendary item (2500 gold worth) or an amazing Epic chest (which you can easily get just by playing in a League for a game or two). If someone wants to treat it as a true competition with no discussion or helping others that's on them. But those who want to help and work together should be free to do so. At worst they don't get picked and lose out on an item, but at best they help introduce an awesome new item to the game that everyone enjoys. Seems selfish to not want to just help others for the betterment of the game.

    Also, anyone that helps me with a winning item I'd gladly donate the item and/or the Epic chest to them.

    EDIT: "Lucky Dice" suggested "Bunsen's Buff Burner" as a name in-game. I like it, but always open to more suggestions about the name and/or cards and so on.

    I don't think Warriors should get so many Purging Strikes in one weapon, especially if it's tokenless. I'd like to see Purging Strike in (double) minor and tokenless warrior weapons, but it should be limited to 2 or max 3 / weapon IMHO.

    Overall, quite fun and useful (divine) weapon. I'd lower the amount of Purging Strikes if keeping it as warrior weapon is desired.

    I'm not really good with names, but maybe something Cleansing Fire would be fitting, especially if there would be a bit more fire attacks.

    Yeah, I was trying to find a way to make it 1 blue token honestly -- I think it is a bit too strong at 0 tokens. Was maybe considering adding a Sundering Strike or something to bump it up. I don't want to add too many fire attacks. Doubt it would be selected anyway due to it having a non-standard card, having a small quote in the submission, and me starting this thread... but who knows! Someone has to rock the boat when testing the waters... or something like that.

    I will be discussing items that the makers want to be discussed, pretty much was I was doing before. (except after Flax said not to do it on the forums, which case I would only do it in private chat.) (Flax's comment in this thread is allowing us to discuss in this thread)

    That purging flame is more purge than any thing else so yeah, reduce it down to 2 or less is my suggestion.

    It is silly to say you can't discuss it on the forums when so many people just discuss it in-game instead. It is the same argument that criminalizing marijuana is helpful despite so many people using it. Just legalize it and control it for the betterment of all. But I digress.
    I don't want to have it less than 3. Really want some reliable way to get Purging Strike into the game for a low token cost. Right now there is only 2 Gold token weapons (due to them being EttSC). I'll probably add something to make it 1 blue token in cost so it isn't so easily put on everyone if it goes through.

    No, it is not silly, the reason was so he(Flax) couldn't read the discussion of the item.

    Great theme! But I'm not sure if anyone would need that many Purging Strikes imo. I usually run a Purging Mace and maybe a Nova Axe in my 2War 1Priest decks and that's enough purge for me. And sometimes that's too many purges. But near all AA items are niche items anyway.

    I have a cool item for this AA. (but I already reached the cap of submissions if you haven't noticed)

    Novice Ninja Blade
    Weapon
    Nimble Strike, Dancing Cut, Dancing Cut, Dodge, Ouch!, Trip
    Level 6.5(tokenless), Rare.
    Or if you think the item is too strong
    Nimble Strike, Nimble Strike, Nimble Strike, Dodge, Ouch!, Trip
    Level 7.5(Minor), Epic.

    Nimble Strike is strong just like Vibrant Pain is strong. Dancing Cut loses fly to reduce it's rating by 1 which is fair. Dodge is too unreliable for it to be a strategy but it does have strong value. Ouch! is a good cycler. Trip is killer, even more killer when it stops you from using your attacks.
    Being at level 6.5 is obviously strong but Strongarm is at level 6 with weak strike being a very powerful card.

    So basically you were a bootlegger. Flax doesn't have to read this thread if he doesn't want to read discussion of current items. I just brought it from the underground out into the open, nothing has really changed.

    What bootleggers do is illegal however you slice it. What you're doing is more akin to watching pornography in public. Perfectly legal to do in private, significantly less so when done out in the open.

    I've lived in dry counties, and countries. God Bless Bootleggers!
    But as Peonprop says, this is different. You're forcing Flaxative's hand at this point. He's either in charge of this, or he isn't. If the objective is to make Aloyzo's Arsenal go away, this could definitely work.
