    Card Balancing and the Future of the Game

    Ok I have been around BF since early Beta... and by that I mean 2008. Love the game, love what its about and I hate Phenom for not doing more of a marketing campaign in the US ( And Root Network Nerf! ). With that said..... WTH are we waiting on in regards to implementing changes to some of the cards. Those of us who have been around know damn well that SOMETHING needs to be done to cards. This project has been going on what 4 or 5 years now and how many have been changed? I am sorry but I have a problem with this. The community has come up with several ideas which honestly are GREAT. Why are they not slowly being implemented. One of the things that hurt this game is there were cards that flat out needed to be NERFED and many that needed to be buffed. Having worked on a project I know that most of the changes are simple edits to the scripts that change the cards as well as an edit to the card itself if it is not an auto update based on the script. We are in Open Stress.... and have been....... for a long..... long ....... time now. We need to start pushing changes to cards forward and get it done before we go live whenever the hell that will be. I have seen the posts about a single person holding up card balance. I do not know how true it is. But we need to start implementing it. Imagine just how many we could have done in 4 years. ....... And had time to get it right!

    Card Balancing and the Future of the Game

    I hae been to the Discord Server some decent ideas there. Granted I can not type or contribute but I can see it. Correct me if i am wrong but we are currently in Open Stress which means pretty much anyone can log in and get "nostalgic" This project has been ongoing for 4.5 years. It is all volunteer and it does take time to relaunch old games. However the "Nostalgia" is wearing thin for some of us. I just do not see a logical reason to be holding back the implementations any longer. The game needs to feel like its moving forward more so than it is. Now I have no idea what the time table is which I understand. However how long is gameplay going to stay. Roll a few card changes out.... see how it works out. There will be issues. Much rather iron those out now than when the game is live. Point being, we have a decent amount of players now that it is extremely feasible to do this. Nostalgia be damned, I have been playing, like most, since 2008.

    Card Balancing and the Future of the Game

    My point is the project has been going since late 2015. We are currently in Open Stress. We have players who are active in PvE, PvP needs a bit of population bump. Unless ya'll plan on creating 2 card databases 1 for PvE and 1 for PvP (Honestly the only way to balance without breaking both), now is the time to try to at least get a few of the "Problem" Cards addressed. Get some done now and when live hits we can do more. The notion to wait to launch as the game was is IMHO ridiculous. We all know how it was and how it is. We do not need a history lesson. Lets try to address some of the card issues now while we have time to play and actually test before it gets to live. I am honestly trying to think of a reasonable reason why we are not at least doing some cards. We know what the problems are..... Lets address them. From my stand point the game appears to be reasonably stable, there are a few issues that pop up, but I am sure they are being addressed. So what is the reason we are waiting?

    combine the reset with the release of new cards

    Go to the Cards and Balance Sub Categories on the forums and you will see what I am talking about. There is seriously way to many to write. Gotta agree with this. While I am not advocating for a complete rebalance. Each Faction has some cards that really really need to be looked at for both reduction and increasing abilities.

    combine the reset with the release of new cards

    Honestly if you want Hype.... Especially for those of us that have been around for a long long long and I mean ancient times. I would suggest balance the cards we have first.... At least some of the Major ones for each faction. That alone will change the dynamic of the game and allow for a fresh breeze.

    I cant believe this game is back

    It is indeed back. No REAL MONEY can exchange hands other than donations for the server. Everything else is being done by awesome volunteers. Boosters are eared at a rate of 1-2 a day depending on your play time. 30 minutes = 1 guaranteed booster and I believe 90ish minutes might give you a second. (confirm?) There are also daily quests available to gain BFP which in turn can be used to purchase boosters. Glad your back

    Want to learn making maps?

    I'd be happy for a tutorial on the Cut Scene Editor.

    Converting Gold to BFP and Vice Versa

    Sorry never played MtG nor do I care to. BF is unique in that you build a deck, and then there is no randomization to how they are drawn other than power. Your deck literally comes to life. There is no other game out there like that. This allows for some very interesting uses of cards both in PvP and PvE. I had ALL the cards in the original BR in about 6-9 months. (2008-2009) And I still played until the day they turned the servers off.

    The Phase Tower Spam is Strong Lately

    Sheesh Shadow players know how to use anything else lately?

    The Phase Tower Spam is Strong Lately

    Yeah saw that.

    Converting Gold to BFP and Vice Versa

    The problem is if you have a conversion for something as easy to gold to obtain, then the markets will get whacked very quickly. Quite frankly all you have to do is use you tube. Just about every map has been dissected with just about any deck imaginable. In Fact I think most have been beat on expert with merely the free to play deck and the tutorial deck. Having any type of conversion is a bad bad idea. I do not agree with this either. Taking 2 years to get all the cards will make me lose interest quicker than having all the cards.

    Converting Gold to BFP and Vice Versa

    Granted I have been around BF since 2008. However currently my deck level is only 40 I think. I can still farm gold quite easily if I so choose.
  13. Darian DelFord

    Converting Gold to BFP and Vice Versa

    Sorry I have to say an emphatic NO to any type of conversion. You really have no idea how easy it is to get gold.

    Event Ideas after reset

    Bit late to the punch but I plan on restarting the Community Challenges we used to do.

    Ultra rare cards in Boosters

    Late to the party I know. However I tested this extensively when we were in Alpha / Beta. The Percentages are dead on accurate. This was testing over 500 1000 and 5000. Came out the same every time.

    T1 Fire vs T1 Nature

    Honestly against fire...... Nature T1 units that SHOULD be played.... Blue Dryad, Shammy, Swift Claw.......... Fire T1...... HATES Blue Dryad spam
  17. Darian DelFord

    T1 Fire vs T1 Nature

    Stop it.... Stop it...... Fire T1 has no chance against Nature T1,..... we must spread this so the fire T1 Players auto resign when they see the first set of swift claws ;ppp actually Fire T1 does nicely against Nature T1
  18. Darian DelFord

    Nature Deck T1

    Yes. Free healing and good T1 M/M counter, especially against Frost Mage Spam. Currently the Shaman is priced WAY WAY to high on the AH. However you can get by with Surge of light so long as you can hit multiple units with it., however it will catch up with you in the end.
  19. Darian DelFord

    T1 Fire vs T1 Nature

    Yes.... give up now..... T1 fire has no chance against T1 Nature

    Voidimanipulation

    Yeah thats what I meant by abilities. I consider everything else to be a spell for a unit
  21. Darian DelFord

    Razorleaf and Root Network

    Aye, Personally I use 4 Melee T4 (Collossus or FOrest Elder) 6 Wyrms and 1 Razor leaf backed with Tree spirits and maybe a living tower. Reason being, is tree spirits are mobile and can almost instantly buff the RL once the nexus is down. This is great to set up as your units are going into a Level 9 or 10 Base. The AE from the RL will just knock out all the little stuff allowing your T4's to concentrate on what they need to. I will never forgive Phenomic for the Razorleaf nerf they did a back when they nerfed the root network

    Voidimanipulation

    Unit abilities refund 100%
  23. Darian DelFord

    Voidimanipulation

    It does refund the poiwer
  24. As a pure nature player since the inception of the game. A shaman is a must on some maps and not needed on others. In PvP I would call it a must, as its a medium/medium counter and in T1 that is huge for nature. Especially against frost. But all cards fall into the same category as a must have or a complete waste. it completely depends on the map you need it on.
  25. Darian DelFord

    Voidimanipulation

    Yes and no.... There is an initial power cost of 100. However it gives power. So it will refund the 100 power over time and then some. This is why power wells are targeted in PvP. If you can bring a well down before it refunds the power the patient has a permanent power loss. If it goes for a while it will pay for itself. It is only a net loss if the player rebuilds it then the process starts again.
