Supposedly one last update before converting to Mage Wars 2.0. I don't have faith in either thing ever being released.

 ;D
I'm done believing, but always curious!

They finally decided to make an errata and continue to develop the first version?

A few more words...

It would be sad to let my cards in there boxes, in the basement... but it would be a lot sadder to be bound to them when creating a new version!


3 points I would reproach to MW and put on the table for a new version:
(and, just to be clear, when I write MW I mean arena! I bought academy for a few useful cards in the arena but never played it)

1) to many conditions.
I like an aggravated wound but don't need burn, poisoned, rot, etc.
I like an incapacitated creature but don't need slam, daze, stun, etc.
etc.

2) spellbind makes the game repetitive.
I prefer to see many spells and strategies during my games.

3) AW never errated...
I like to get a well thought game when I buy it, but when a problem appears it must be fixed!

wow... I came back just to see if somebody's still here... WOW! somebody and some news!

I don't know where it leads, but I didn't play MW for a few years and didn't find replacement.
If AW creates something as rich as it was, as long as it was, as complex as it was, I'm looking forward to play it.

I received Codex and Spirit Island today!
Well... I'm off for a moment... sure back for a new arena expansion... or one day, who knows...

Thank you AW and everybody on the forum for these great MW-years!

"her" is the force master.

you must choose:
-> does it stay the FM when cast from the eye?
-> does it mean "the source" and become the eye when cast from the eye?

ase written, it's the first answer... but I choosed the second.

Tu connais mon avis exid ^^
i am sure when you ll see the card of elementalist and druid, you come back to magewars ;)

I still have to convince Tchi... but I would let MW sleep on the shelf until Expansion Charming arrives accros the arena to wake it up!

I opened this thread partly to get reactions about arena's survival... well... everibody answered with alternative games...

Thanks!
Codex and Incantris are tempting!
And I still must take a look to Spirit island.

I see the end of MW (arena) coming and have to find another game to play with my friend...

We tried Adroid netrunner, but it was too chaotic.
We tried Ashes, rise of the phenixborns, but it was a little light.
We tried star wars armada and it's great!!! but we like to play in bars and MW-size is the largest we can afford.
... does somebody have ideas?

we like deckbuilding (but it's not necessary).
we like long games (we play 3-5h MW games, a little less would be great).
we like a lot of strategical choices, a little luck and a rich univers.
we need a game that can be played on a small table (MW is already to large).

all help welcome!

If that's really true, no more arena expansions.
I will not buy any more academy poducts or anything else from aw.
i'll buy the two new aca.
but, well, if there's nothing new for arena in 2019 (and not only a mage, i want big fat spells!), i'll probably stop buying... and playing.

 ;D ;D ;D

i think that the bow is not meant to get the bonus.
i thougth that as written it would.
... but i think that Arkdeniz reading shut's the case: no bonus!

if the crab attacks his prey and makes 0 damages, does the bow get the bonus to the prey since the prey was damaged by the crab's capacity?

(isn't this one funny?)

"It  is  possible that  both  players  may  attach  an  identical  enchantment  to the same target. If an enchantment is revealed on an object which   already   has   an   identical   revealed   enchantment attached to it, the newly-revealed enchantment is destroyed without effect."

rulles can't forbid 2 players to attach the same hidden enchantment (they don't know what the other player has cast). the question is how this situation is treated.
as written, the 2 enchantments stay on the object/zone until both are revealed.

that makes possible:
1) you have a revealed bear strength on your bear, i can cast another one (hidden) making you think it's a nullify that will forbid you to teleport your bear
2) you have a hidden bear strength on your bear, i cast another one (hidden), when you reveal yours, i can dispel it and reveal mine. (i can't think now of a better example... sorry)

is that right?
