Strategy and Tactics / Warlord Bridge Troll
« on: November 04, 2017, 01:27:41 PM »
Here's a play I pulled last night, looking for comments on how to improve and what the weak spots are.

T1: 19 mana
Move to B3
Final QC: Teleport to B2
remain 17 mana

T2: 26 mana
QC: General's Signet Ring
Action: Bridge Troll
remain 11 mana

T3: 20 mana
QC: Commander's Cape
Action: Bridge Troll
Push with Bridge Troll
remain 6 mana

T4: 15 mana
Action: Bridge Troll
Push with two Bridge Trolls
remain 4 mana

T5: 13 mana
Action: Bridge Troll
Push with three Bridge Trolls
optional QC: Lesser Teleport (if you need to get away)
remain mana 2 (or 0).

After T5 you can keep keep producing level 3 Dwarfs of your preference (Crossbowman, Kriegsbiel, Kriegshammer or Panzergrade) or you can focus on supporting your Trolls. I expect the mage to take some damage during the first 5 Turns and I'm ok with that :)

Worked well last night against Siren. Took out Water Elemental and Naiya and did 17 damage on enemy mage by turn 8, he surrendered...

Strategy and Tactics / End game - infinite resources
« on: October 02, 2017, 03:10:05 PM »
Had a weird game on Friday that ended up with a kind of stalemate, except for one mage having Sunfire Amulet. That mage could have gained enough life to jump into the well defended zone where the other mage was hiding and slowly kill everything in there.
Does this seem out of balance?
Are there other cards that would provide similar end game advantage? (couldn't think of any)
Other thoughts?

Spellbook Design and Construction / Paladin spell cost calculation
« on: November 13, 2016, 10:21:10 AM »
Hi,

working on adding PvS to my spellbook builder and just wanted to clarify something.

When Paladin uses level 4 non-creature Holy spell, how much does it cost?

8 points (2 per level)
or
5 points (1 per levels 1-3, 2 for level 4)

Thanks

Spellbook Builder / My spellbook builder
« on: August 15, 2016, 09:01:14 AM »
EDIT:
Spellbook builder is available at http://www.spellbookbuilder.com
It includes all released Arena and Academy cards.
It doesn't support Internet Explorer (don't know about Edge, wouldn't be my money on it).

ORIGINAL POST:
Hi gals and guys,

Writing from Croatia, been playing MW for about 2 years. I've been reading forums for a while but never felt like I could contribute so this is my first post.

Spellbook builder was incredibly useful when I first started building spellbooks, but over time and extensive usage I became aware of things that could be improved.

I'm currently on vacation and a few days ago I started looking into spell builder card database code before my daughter and wife woke up. Things escalated quickly from there and I spent entire day coding and by the time I went to bed I had a fully functional spellbook builder/card database.

The main reasons for taking this effort were:
 - official spellbook builder is somewhat difficult to use on a small screen
 - I often need to skim through all the cards so I can decide what to include (I only play ~50 games per year)
 - I wanted to search cards by restriction (dark mage only, druid only etc.)
 - I recently purchased Battleground Dominations and it is not supported on official spellbook
 - importing spellbooks doesn't work (I'm a mac user)
 - accidentally reloading the page is devastating :)

I needed up with a slightly different design and implemented all the functionality official spellbook builder has plus:
 - spellbooks are stored using browser storage - they persists across sessions
 - support for Battleground Dominations
 - card restrictions are searchable (through subtype)

At the moment I'm very happy with what I've got, but I plan to add the following
 - mage cards - the main problem here is that I need to take photos of them and the sets are at my friends (we co-own then).
 - "remember" number of sets owned - defaults are currently hardcoded for sets we own, but it may not be practical for other people :)

Anyway, here goes:



During the process I used information from card database and spellbook builder and I downloaded images for all cards. I believe these things are property of AW so I'd like to get approval to share my spellbook builder/card database with the rest of the world.

If I can get approval I would be delighted to hear the community feedback, implement new features and fix bugs (there are always bugs).

Another thing I'd like to do is add more data about the cards so they can be searched based on attack attributes (Piercing, Unavoidable ...), effects (Burn, Cripple ..) and other relevant info (Defense, Armor, dice number ...). It wouldn't be difficult to add this feature but data is not available and I don't have the time to enter it manually. If I get AW approval and there is interest it can be a community driven effort.

Cheers

P.S. Hope admins will approve this post :)
