Trials / Re: 11th Trials - Suggestions and Feedback
« Last post by deuce22 on Today at 02:12:03 AM »
a couple responses to elk's comments

re: bonus points for soldiers - I never said, or even implied, that soldiers don't contribute to the war team. Typically, the general of any team (as long as he/she remains active) is going to do more work than almost any soldier. There are of course always exceptions, and there is no way to account for these when allocating bonus points in trials. But just because a team wins war does not mean all the soldiers were more active than anyone else in war (general or soldier). And the notion that war is only won by a team effort is also grossly incorrect. A good team certainly helps and makes winning war more likely, but I'm gonna guess around half the war winning teams were dominated by a single individual calling all the shots.

re: phase 1 - like I said, many people will disagree with my opinion on this, and I have no problem with that. The idea that phase 1 "adds something to keeping mastership as being more than just a PVP title" seems ridiculous to me. Trials IS a PVP event, and it provides winners with the opportunities to lead an element-based team in War and/or Brawl. Phase 1 and 3 are just additional things that slightly affect the PVP. As for the grading scale, see the above comments by torb and jijo on how well that is working out so far. The subjective nature of phase 1 needs to be removed, otherwise others like torb may quit as well mid-trials.

re: phase 4 - I understand your viewpoint on this, and I hold the same sentiments about preserving the structure of war. However, I haven't really had to change my deckbuilding for the last 4-5 aether final battles, which is kind of boring. Granted, Afda promised me the final battle would be a bit different this trials.

To all: Make a better damage formula for Adrenaline. As "better" is subjective, i'll leave that to your individual judgment.

[22:42:00] ‹Vineroz› P3 is just a job interview, and P4 is where you work to be a manager
[22:42:57] ‹Vineroz› but in terms of nature, P3 is the closest to real life
[22:43:21] ‹Vineroz› it is actually a very good practice

to Vine: where do you see yourself in 10 years?  :sillyspin:

Why on earth would you become a good master of earth ? again ?

I'm probably the player that knows :earth the best among the players that are still around. I have as a general of :earth lead it to the best position ever for :earth in war. If I become a Master I see no reason why I shouldn't be able to put :earth at top 3# or better. I know :earth, I love :earth and I always perform well when I play with :earth. I've played this game since 2010 and has been a part of the forum since 2012. During that time I have never been away from the forums and that won't change any time soon. I take huge pride in bearing the master title for :earth and hope to continue represent :earth :D

IAMA article writer, ex-wiki contributor, casual player, returning "veteran". AMA! Or don't, that works too.
This is my Phase 1 submission.

All answers will be unspoilered so that y'all can check my answers quickly. Not that there'll be many questions for me anyway.

@ all, but especially the ones who will face STANDIN: Can you build a team that you can lead to victory? I believe this will have the following aspects: Can you yourselves build good decks to beat your opponents? Can you predict and counter them with your element? Can you draft a Team that is a capable of doing that whenever you cant? Will you be able to inspire your teammates to do all in their power to fight for the win in every game? Can you infect others with your enthusiasm for your element (if you have any in the first place)? And most importantly: Will you put the necessary time investment in all those things?
Despite my unsatisfactory Phase 2 results, i'm actually quite experienced in War. At least, to my own standard. I've fought 2 Wars before, and from these 2 Wars i've learned quite a lot about its meta.
To answer in details:
I cannot build good decks, only decent decks. Only with my teammates' help can i do it.
I can predict and counter decks.
I can draft a well-rounded team and inspire my team to victory, but i don't think that'll do much since War isn't won by inspiration but by might. Si vis pacem, para bellum. If you want peace, prepare for War. Coincidentally, in this context the saying has two meanings.
I can infect (this is such a :death word) others with enthusiasm, i did so in my second War by suggesting everyone to change avatar to Cloak for the lulz.
But unfortunately, i don't have the luxury of time. I'm on my fifth year in university, and this particular university has a 7-year limit. If i still don't graduate in 2 years, then i'm dropped out. Considering this, and considering that i have to prepare for my thesis soon, i can't commit to being a General, at least not for now.

If you could choose one new creature to represent darkness, what would it be?
Quote from: Wikipedia
In Algonquian folklore, the wendigo or windigo is a cannibal monster or evil spirit native to the northern forests of the Atlantic Coast and Great Lakes Region of both the United States and Canada. The wendigo may appear as a monster with some characteristics of a human, or as a spirit who has possessed a human being and made them become monstrous. It is historically associated with cannibalism, murder, insatiable greed, and the cultural taboos against such behaviours.

Well... that should be pretty much the baseline for people who just thumbs up everything :p  Today's card is freeze, which at least lends itself to quite a few duos or even trios, so I should be able to come up with something more clever.
