Player Feedback and Suggestions / End game help?
« on: December 14, 2016, 06:04:53 PM »
So I've found myself in 3 games against very experienced players and I literally get to where I need one more round of solid attack and there dead and I haven't taken much damage and then opponent teleports wall and puts heal on wand and come back haha. Each of these games were like 3 plus hours with the running away and such. I need help. I either need to be more aggressive early or maybe bring out more creatures versus putting a ton of armor/enchantments on myself?

Player Feedback and Suggestions / Epic finish to PvS
« on: December 06, 2016, 10:03:20 PM »
Ok so my brother in law and I always purchase the new sets and immediately just play  the prebuilt books for the mages and then switch. First game I was paladin now this time I was siren. So we're down to the last round basically with each 3 health left. I have a chance to attack with my water elemental but I want to end it epically and decide to cast tsunami instead! And guess what he reveals eye for and eye and I roll 4 damage lol. So in  theory this is a tie correct? Anyways it was fun as we both went completely different routes playing the mages. I went with water elemental and the ring for initiative and would cast swells on my initiative. Also got shoalsdeep caller out. I must have rolled probably 8 times for a push chance and failed 6 of the times even with the ring lol. Anyways it was fun game!

Player Feedback and Suggestions / Conjuration neccessities?
« on: December 02, 2016, 06:00:11 PM »
With PvS and now LG adding new conjurations and such to the mix is there any of you carry certain ones in your decks for countering? Just wanted some feedback on like ok this could really hurt you so have this conjuration in case or u might see this tactic so have this. Or do u guys only use conjurations to boost your offense vs defensive counters? When I first played this game and even still today I've ignored most conjurations and seem to always maybe lack that element to the game. Just wanted some thoughts and theories thanks Mage on!

Player Feedback and Suggestions / Demo video?
« on: November 30, 2016, 11:29:05 PM »
Hello Mage Wars community! I was wondering if there is a good video out there that demos the game? Looking for good material to send to some people to learn the game and then I can explain it when I meet up with them as well. I tried teaching academy to a nongamer and it was a lot for them to take in haha. But the other people I have in mind would have a better grasp on the game. But I just thougt if there is all ready great videos of people teaching or running a demo to a first timer I could recommend that to people? Any thoughts let me know or advice on how you go about teaching a new player thanks!

Alternative Play / Windows 7 users for Octgn?
« on: November 27, 2016, 07:52:15 AM »
Ok so I've found out some problems ive been having. When I download new sets from the dropbox the files cause an error to the deck editor and my spellbooks using the sets. But for some reason when a player emails me there copy of download it works? Just wondering if anyone else has had a problem and uses windows 7? Seems to be something going on when my computer downloads the sets?

Alternative Play / Spellbook builder error on octgn
« on: November 26, 2016, 12:36:02 PM »
So ever since I did the new update for PvS my octgn mage wars is all messed up. My spellbook builder won't work nor my paladin or siren book open during a game. I was going to try and reinstall the deck builder first to see if that fixes it. Can anyone tell me the appropriate steps for that as I don't want to mess anything else up. Otherwise I'll just reinstall everything? Thanks

General Discussion / Siren preset deck too many spell points?
« on: November 21, 2016, 09:01:54 PM »
I created the presuggested deck for siren on octgn and it says 127 points? Anyone else have that problem? Paladin is 120.

Just wanted to talk about my play thru earlier today. I was paladin my brother in law siren. My approach to win was armor up my mage and boost a red helm since he has pyschic immune to prevent songs. His approach pirate harpooners and pushing mage thru walls. Result I got spanked. So my red helm was killed on one turn snatched by harponer and hit by a shark. Next plan back off and bring in flying crusader and keep it alive. I did that well but then then got pushed and pulled thru wall into sea urchines and hydro vent for the final blow. It was epic. I got about 20 damage on the siren. it was a fun play through but I feel like u must find a way to keep boots on and bring down her walls. I was dissapointed to see I had no ranged attack spells nor a force push to return the favor. I think with the paladin next time I need to bring out like 3 creatures with my armored mage? Anyways good expansion everyone needs to check it out! Looking forward to try the siren myself now!

General Discussion / PvS tips
« on: November 19, 2016, 02:32:47 PM »
Just played a few round of PvS and I was the paladin. I used presuggested deck. My strategy was to boost mage up then banner to summon 2 creatures. Well banner got taken out with 2 attack spells haha.i put it 3 zones away from opponents corner and they moved one and used a spell and then naiya used another to kill it in one round!  Anyways what are your guys strategy to acquire valor and how to best use them? I didn't acquire a single valor lol. But then again I didn't get creatures out.

General Discussion / New PvS expansion questions
« on: November 18, 2016, 10:02:31 PM »
So just received my copy! Couple questions I received a separate bag of extra promos and alternate art work on mages. 2 mages were left out priestess and orc warlord. One idk I was getting this at all so I can't complain but was there suppose to be a whole set? Rules question does resolute aura give friendly creatures both tough -2 and armor +2? The wording confused me. Then for terrains can there only be one at a time in a zone? The rule example explains payment to replace and describes 2 terrains being in a zone and how to pay but not what happens to coexist. Sorry if these have been answered already. But man this expansion looks awesome! Good work arcane wonders!

General Discussion / Just wanted to say thank you!
« on: November 18, 2016, 07:31:21 AM »
Hey Mage Wars community this is a great game and community just wanted to thank everyone that's part of it and keeping it going! I just got introduced and starting playing this game about a year a ago. I'm playing catch up but I'm loving it. My paladin vs siren copy comes in today! I just came across mage wars Mondays podcast last week and have made it to episode 30 lol. Just listened to where arcane duels tuned in! I basically put the podcast on in the background as I drive and do chores at home and go to bed too lol. I'm hoping soon to have more time to play and become a better player like the likes of some of you! Keep it up thanks again!

General Discussion / Co-op play?
« on: November 09, 2016, 08:55:44 PM »
So just somehow heard about mage wars Mondays podcast and was listening to them. And in one episode there was a co-op version being discussed. Something about playing an archmage ai? It was rumored to be in the works in 2015. Does anyone know anything about this and if it will be an option? I really like the concept of a co-op play!

Strategy and Tactics / Battleforge tactics?
« on: October 24, 2016, 10:16:41 PM »
So I made a post asking for advice on spawnpoints and familiars now onto battleforge. When should you use battleforge and when shouldn't you? Which mages/styles benefit mostly from battleforge which ones don't? Defensively when should you try and take out it out or ignore it? Just looking for feedback thanks!

Strategy and Tactics / Familiar tactics?
« on: October 24, 2016, 10:14:33 PM »
Last post I wanted touch on spawnpoints now let's learn about familiars. When should you and when shouldn't you use familiars? If you had to rank them what would they be? Which mages benefit more from them and which don't? Defensively when should you try to destroy it or should u ignore it? Just looking for some feedback thanks!
