  1. That was the point, there were a lot of complaints from players who wanted to play pvp exclusively and dont want to play 20+ hours of PVE first. With this system you will hopefully get players that otherwise wouldn't have played at all. I don't see a point in paying for these temporary decks, won't make a significant difference economy wise and also takes away from the purpose of the system: PVP players not being forced to play PVE. Shoutout to Radical, Hirooo and TopS3cret for chosing blue netherwarp indstead of the lame green one
  2. Using bloodhealing isn't that hard, and remember it's only 50 power wich is a big advantage over the nature heals. Yes, regrowth is easier to use and a stronger heal but as far as i see it you will either displease a lot of casual players by nerfing it or buff bloodhealing endlessly and people still won't use it as long as you don't change its mechanic and make it a generic one click AOE heal.
  3. Why should popular/strong cards become rare and unpopular/weak cards become common? Makes it even harder to get a good deck at the start and everyone will accumulate even bigger piles of cards he doesnt use. The only reason i can think of to implement such a system would be generating more money wich isnt an option for SR. Getting new players on the other hand is an aim, wich this sytem wouldn't help at all. From the beginning the relation of card strength and card raritiy had been rather random, but i think that's just because the original developers had no idea wich cards are actually s
  4. You can sell your boosters to to other players and use the bfp to buy the cards you need directly from the auction house. Compared to counting on random luck to get certain cards thats's of course a gamechanger.
  5. I love lost souls PVE decks with only lost (and not frost or shadow) spells and units. I think the colours and spell animations are the most beautiful of all factions but damn is it weak in comparison. You would expect a card with very constrictive orb restriction to be stronger than one that you can combine with other colours - but unfortunately thats so often not the case in Battleforge. This leads to a lot of cards that almost never see any play like the lost spells you mentioned. Frenetic and infect alone are so much better than anything pure lost has to offer in T3 and even T4. Any w
  6. Esepcially against the slow frost T1 you can and should always block a close well with swift units. Regarding the tournie's map pool a tower ban makes T1 relatively fair, i think. For example frost T1 might now have a certain advantage on Yrmia (short distances) while still being the underdog on Uro (looong distances). I personally like this towerban cause it means less turtling into T3 and more action: more fun to play and watch.
  7. Another interesting thing i witnessed earlier: When a ranged unit fires a projectile and gets swapped by nightguard while the projectile is mid air, no damage is done. Probably also works that way with parasite swarm, mindweaver and mind control.

    PvP t4 fight

    There can be fun T3 fights but timeless one / shield building / curse well are simply too prevelant to have fun regulary.
  9. Hey, this guide can give you an overview about wich PvP decks are rather strong/weak and wich are most suitable to begin with: When it comes to PVE you can generally say splash decks (different colours in one deck) are stronger than pure decks. For beginners nature and frost are a good combination because these factions have a lot of cards that make your armies and bases safe and stable. But in the end its a question of wich playstyle you prefer, because shadow and fire cards aren't weaker, they just need a little more knowledge and experience to succeed with.
  10. Harvy without disenchant is relatively easy to get rid of with root-aura for example. Compare that to juggers with healspam, root + wildfire or homesoiled dancers.
  11. Yes, it would at least destroy PvP balance to a certain extent. I get goosebumps imagining a stonekin deck with 24 slots. (At the moment stonekin players have to distribute weak spots among T1, T2 and T3 wich makes the deck relatively balanced). You could also play a lost souls deck with ~ 9 T3 cards, not fun. @Flrbb : Maybe something wich comes close it possible with the map editor. I have no clue what's possible and what not, but some mapdesigners like Kaldra did crazy things with the existing mechanics of the game.

    rpve Twilight Deck

    Hi! Cards i don't find that strong in your deck: spirithunters, twilight creeper and frost crystal. Cards i would always consider in a fire/nature RPVE deck: hurricane, thunderstorm and cluster explosion (red). And because you have shrine of war and therefor the powercost of a spell doesnt really matter you could also consider playing armageddon.
  13. How about losing an orb? Or two wells? That happens, too, sometimes, especially for decks without hurricane or building protects. I agree with you to a certain extent: When the game has just started and you get walled you should really consider paying more attention to the oponent. But in T2 there might be action all over the map and paying attention to every f'in wall all the time is making it hard to play your optimal game. It's an annoying, possibly frustrating part of pvp wich is of course a subjective opinion, but one wich can be supported by a lot of arguments and is shared among most pl
  14. Wich it doesn't. Like he already explained it often leads to games where a player loses because of a few seconds of not paying attention. It's also sad watching a lot of low- and midrank players who seem to see this as their primary strategy on ,,wallable'' maps like Layesh and Simai when there are much more fun ways to play the game. Already a lot of players make a ,,no walls?'' agreement before matches on certain maps.
  15. How exactly does amii monument add variety in T4? If you want to say it makes 5 orb decks possible, this maybe the case but nobody does that, haven't seen it in hundred of rPVEs.
  16. On the topic of balancing one or several cards at a time: It has to be remembered that a lot of cards are essential to more than one faction. I have a fear of people only looking at the main matchups (lost, pure fire, fire/nature...) and making matchups worse by not thinking about every single matchup wich is affected by a change. Imo balancing the game without a ,,3 steps forward, 2 steps back'' pace can only be done with multiple changes at a time. How else do you want to balance cards that are in top tier and lowest tier decks at the same time?
  17. That's not exactly the case with aggressor. It's not conseidered too weak in higher rankings, it's more of a unit with a special task wich can also be done by other units (countering L units). It is used as L counter wich is costly but therefor perma CCs things that could otherwise get annoying for stonekin like skyfire drakes, war eagles, mounties... Anyway imo the main reason why balancing is impossible for lowranks is that there is no meta. A pure fire deck in higher rankings is mostly the same except 2 or 3 cards. That's just the deckcomposition endless players found out to be the str
  18. There is no balance in low level PVP play. Players use the cards they know are strong in PVE. Then they see their 50 power units getting knocked back by an 150 power aggressor and then think aggressor is OP (wich of course is not). Balancing is impossible for this level of skill (if you want to balance it for the toplevel of skill at the same time)
  19. Can this thread get a little less hostile? I also don't agree with Deldrimor when he equals a high pvp rank with an ability to handle balancing decissions. Here are some prime (pun not intended) examples of what i mean: ,,main tire was nature T1 cause its strongest'' ,,if the player knows how to play and got the skills he can counter anything so pls cut it out... stop cry about cliffdancer'' ,,bandits is absolut underrated'' These are quotes from top 10 players from this forum. They aren't all great at theocrafting like some might think. (and i don't care fo
  20. Doesn't it heal way more than twice the amount of the carddescription though? I thougt that's why it's considered a bug and not just some unintended use. I can't test at the moment cause i don't have the green netherwarp yet.

  22. Relatively. in 2013 it was better than 2009, but only because it was made better step by step. Sometimes the Greeks are 95 % of players, then we should consider making 5% a little less happy for the greater good. This is how it was always done in the history of Battleforge balancing. Me, too. But not necessarily topplayer by rank, but moreso by rank and the ability to explain things and have a balance discussion. Some topplayers views on balance are straight simpleminded. So if we nerf cursewell for example every tactic for speedruns is useless? You're dramatising. Some
  23. He probably ment units like lost dancer, lost wanderer (wich has seen some play though), twilight minions etc - S/F relies on shadow and frost units while F/N relies on nature and fire units. But even stonekin and bandits can do fine without their respective faction units, wich just shows how much strong splashable cards there are. Concerning frost vs nature T1, i don't know if there's a better way to play this, but if the optimal play is frost mage spam, this macthup is outright stupid in terms of balance. If mountaineer gets a nerf, pure fire gets buffed and fire/frost nerfed, i do
  24. I'd always go for a shadow start when playing 2 x shadow for early ressource boosters. Not a fan of netherwarp, it heals like nothing and if you warp your teammates it might mess up their spells and focus fire (i for example hate when i cast a spell like revenge on my units and then get ported somewhere else. Or i carefully micro my tanks in the front and low HP dragons in the back only to get thrown in the middle of the base by some netherwarp). You should think about incredible Mo cause otherwise lost dragons are a huge annoyance for your ships. Maybe a second affinity of frenetic wich i fin
