update:

- updated orb requirements and affinities of changed cards (all other card values haven't been updated yet)

- added outdated indicator to median/mean/min/max prices to be able to immediately see if the values are outdated (if they were last updated more than 24h ago) as the script that updates the notable prices hasn't been automated yet

- added option to add a short description to the community decks with specific parameters and a related veteran action:

  • descriptions can be up to 500 characters long
  • for now, the only allowed characters aside from letters and numbers are: _ - + > ' , ; . : ! ? ( ) and new line character (if you need a specific additional character for your description, feel free to suggest it)
  • IMPORTANT FOR VETERANS: veterans have a new action that allows them to flag a deck for having an inappropriate description which is then reviewed. these flags are not reversible by veterans and will result in appropriate actions being taken for the deck creator and for false flagging. decks that have been flagged by at least 1 veteran this way can't be edited or deleted until they have been reviewed and the problem resolved.

 

Deck descriptions have been a repeatedly requested feature by multiple people, so please behave in what you write in the free text area or the feature will have to be rethought/removed again, if it is being abused too much. I am relying on your best behavior. 🙂

update:

- improved website security

- updated card upgrade claim and apply gold costs

- updated cardArtwork image api to allow SMJ IDs

- updated header tabs to have menus and group subpages into the categories: Info, Tools, Community, Personal

- updated /lists path to now be /personal/lists

The plan is to expand the personal features next, for which 2 larger (and hopefully helpful) ones are planned and currently being conceptualized.

 

On another note: I plan to transfer and recode the website, bot and scripts to integrate new knowledge and hopefully make them more stable and intuitive for others to understand, since I wanted to maybe allow others to contibute as well in the furture. But this will not happen for at least another year or so, just to let you know. This doesn't mean that the current versions won't receive any updates, but they will continue to be maintained with updated official data until the transfered versions are completed. 😉

update:

- fixed reforging values calculation for hybrid cards, a modifier had a wrong activation condition

- fixed Sleet Storm's wrong orb requirements (sorry, that it took so long for me to fix this)

- updated cardArtwork api to now serve images in .webp format by default so lower traffic for sites that use it

- updated default notables from 1W to 2W, so if not otherwise stated median/mean/min/max are taken from the last 14 days before their calculation, this is to prevent the values from being too influenced by sudden spikes that last more than a few days

- added functionality to open navigation tab subpages in new window by clicking them with the middle mouse key

 

On a side note, a new big feature is close to being ready, so stay tuned. 😉

where update? 😄

for said feature to be useful, something similar to the export deck functionality needs to be implemented ingame first, otherwise it would be too tedious for the user to handle updating and for me to code a more complex update functionality. 🙂

update:

- updated card redirect functionality from "smj.cards/card?code=[code]" to "smj.cards/card?id=[id]" where "[code]" used to be a deck code and "[id]" can be either a SMJ ID or an official Card ID

- fixed an issue with the long term charts (but the delay when clicking on a card from the main page still occurs, sadly)

- added functionality to set the quality of fullCard and full deck images rendered on the server

 

Side note:

I moved everything to a different hoster that provides 4x CPU Cores, 8x RAM, 12x Storage for the same price. This allows for more computation heavy functionalities, like rendering full deck images instead of basic ones as well as more frequent and automatic notables updates. 🙂

update:

- updated Banzai Lord's Offense Type

- updated color and booster name from "Bandit" to "Bandits"

- added booster simulator which can be found on the /boosters page (at the moment there is still a small visual issue, due to the card images being loaded on flip which causes their rendering to be delayed and their names flashing before the image appears)

- added apis for generating random decks and boosters, they can be on /api/random/deck and /api/random/booster respectively

 

The random deck/booster apis have some optinal parameters to modify the results, with the returned data being in the same format as the respone of the /api/cards endpoint.

Deck:

  • orbs=[orbs] , which specifies the orb order of the deck, where [orbs] can be any 4 letter combination of:
    R: Fire, P: Shadow, G: Nature, B: Frost, A(or any other character that is not any of the other 4 case sensitive letters): any, with the default being equivalent to AAAA, if less than 4 letters are provided (e.g. GB) it is internally extended (e.g. GBAA) with the any orbs resulting in one being selected at random
  • neutrals , which allows the deck to contain neutral cards, false by default. since neutral cards tend to appear too often in the randomly generated decks
  • duplicates , which allows the deck to contain duplicate cards, false by default. other affinities and promo versions are considered duplicates
  • more options are possible, but I felt they are not that important for this usecase, like the more detailed options on the /deck page

Booster:

  • type=[type] , which specifies the booster that you want to randomly generate. there are multiple inputs (case insensitive) allowed for the different boostes, with the default booster being the general/all one and if the input does not match any of the following, a general booster is randomly generated:
    • Mini:                -2 / M / mini
    • Fire:                  0 / R / FI / fire
    • Shadow:           1 / P / SH / shadow
    • Nature:             2 / G / NA / nature
    • Frost:                3 / B / FR / frost
    • Bandits:            4 / RP / PR / fireshadow / shadowfire / FISH / SHFI / BA / BD / bandits
    • Stonekin:          5 / GB / BG / naturefrost / frostnature / NAFR / FRNA / ST / SK / stonekin
    • Twilight:           6 / RG / GR / firenature / naturefire / FINA / NAFI / TW / TL / twilight
    • Lost Souls:        7 / PB / BP / shadowfrost / frostshadow / SHFR / FRSH / LS / lostsouls
    • Amii:                 8 / PG / GP / shadownature / natureshadow / SHNA / NASH / AM / amii
    • Fire/Frost:         9 / RB / BR / firefrost / frostfire / FIFR / FRFI / FF

Both endpoints also have the option to generate an image like the /api/images/deck/[code] endpoint. For that simply add the parameter image the the enpoints would be /api/random/deck?image and /api/random/booster?image respectively. With the image parameter being present the endpoints also accept the same optional parameters as the /api/images/deck/[code] endpoint.

  • image , makes the enpoint return an image instead of cards data
  • text , generates the basic cards with names (ignored if parameter full is also provided)
  • full , generate full detailed cards instead of basic ones
  • upgrade=[number] , define the upgrade level of the full cards (only relevant for decks, as boosters are automatically rendered with upgrade=0)
  • charges=[number] , define the number of active charges of the full cards (only relevant for decks, as boosters are automatically rendered with charges=0)

update:

- updated random deck api to always include at least 1 T1 ground unit of the the T1 orb color, so the decks are actually playable

- updated booster simulator card flip animation which also fixed the issue were the image didn't load fast enough resulting in the name being shown first

 

Side note:

I investigated the load times of the pages for the specific cards, and it seems to be an issue with the server taking forever to respond with data that should be pre built, so either something with the server or the static data distribution needs to be changed. I will continue to investigate it.

major update, version 0.2.4:

- updated cards data with correct upgrade maps for new cards

- updated personal pages titles

- added Booster Simulator page, Personal Booster History page and made Personal Collection page available

- added api image endpoint option for simple card images with only artwork, border and name, it's available at "/api/images/fullCard/[smj or official card ID]?simple"

 

Boosters Page: (https://smj.cards/boosters)

- removed Booster Simulator from page and separated it into it's own page

- reworked boosters table values to provide better information of what return values to expect:

  • removed recent column due to becoming obsolete with new calculation method
  • median average (correct rarity distribution with the median card value for each rarity based on the 2 weeks median price for the possible cards)
  • mean average (correct rarity distribution with the mean card value for each rarity based on the 2 weeks median price for the possible cards) [practically the same as the previous median column]
  • min average (correct rarity distribution with the min card value for each rarity based on the 2 weeks median price for the possible cards)
  • max average (correct rarity distribution with the max card value for each rarity based on the 2 weeks median price for the possible cards)
  • lowest possible (worst possible value from booster)
  • highest possible (best possible value from booster)

- added tooltips to give a bit of information of how the values were generated

 

Booster Simulator Page: (https://smj.cards/simulator)

- added separate Booster Simulator page

- added values of what the cards from the booster may be worth

- option to enable the storage of simulated boosters in your browser for deeper analysis on the personal boosters page

 

grafik.thumb.png.694a304e13f0afbbaad252bba2e9606b.png

 

Parsonal Boosters History Page: (https://smj.cards/personal/boosters)

- added new page to analyse your booster history in a more detailed fashion (simulated boosters only for now):

  • see actual 2 weeks median total value of the obtained cards, total sum of mean and median value of the opened boosters
  • see rarity, color and edition distributions for the diferent boosters with color and edition also being reliant of the rarity distribution
  • distributions represent: "actually obtainedtotal (expected total) difference percentage of actual compared to expected"

- booster history table similar to the in-game version but with price info of the contained cards

- OPTION TO EXPORT YOUR BOOSTER HISTORY IS NOT YET AVAILABLE IN-GAME.

grafik.thumb.png.24032c5c493aa13cc3197a426c13fb35.png

 

Personal Collection Page: (https://smj.cards/personal/collection)

- view your card collection and set collection condition and goal and show rarity distribution and worth of fitting/missing cards and upgrades

- table to see what cards make sense to sell depending on your set condition and which to buy depending on your goal

- table of maps to play to obtain the most relevant updrades or most average gold (might need a rework based on the updrades rework in-game)

- show completed/not completed cards based on your set condition/goal.

- OPTION TO EXPORT YOUR COLLECTION IS NOT YET AVAILABLE IN-GAME.
