Card Collecting Released


In March 2011 the Trading Card Game by itself was released. Now that the server is live, the whole Card Collecting aspect has been implemented.

There are many small details and changes compared to the past version, so at the top of my head:
  • All players receive the same starter deck. This deck has been carefully selected to ensure as much balance as possible among the different directions.
  • There is the option to play both a Fair and Custom deck battle.
  • Fair Deck battles are limited to 10 wins against the same opponent per 24 hours. Custom Deck battles are limited to 3 wins against the same opponent per 24 hours.
  • No stats are exchanged after beating the same opponent more than 3 times in a row, unless 6 hours have passed.
  • Booster Packs contain 5 cards, and are guaranteed to award cards of certain levels.
  • Every different card obtainable by booster packs are "printed" a specific number of times, and then deducted from until no cards of the same level are left, where the process repeats. This ensures rarity.
  • Card Trading is GUI based.
  • Only cards of the same level can be traded.
  • Wins and losses of both game modes can be seen within the Statistics menu.

Booster packs are sold at the same Card House just north of the Orphanage/Unstick Me where the Card Game is obtained.

This is how the card levels are arranged for each level booster pack:

Level 1 = 2,1,1,0,0
Total level = 4

Level 2 = 3,2,1,1,0
Total level = 7

Level 3 = 3,3,2,1,1
Total level = 10

Level 4 = 4,3,2,2,2
Total level = 13

It's all very ugly.

The "mat", the cards.

That's petty and I've enjoyed the game itself, but it just looks unimpressive.

Very nice, are card points awarded by wins or do you earn them some other way?

I guess the album/deck manager could use some work, but I like the actual play mat itself when you're playing against others. I think it works!

I also really dig how the card game is played, it's very simple but incredibly fun. I know UN comparisons are tired, and I love Manta, but this card game is much more entertaining than UN's; UN's card game re-release lasted maybe 2 days, and then people got tired of it. I think this is the best thing Classic has going for it with its release. Now that packs and rarity have been introduced, it'll be even better. I only wish the Card Tournament was hosted more by Game Coordinators.

My complaints were more detailed in the other thread, I'm not going to bother copying them because you're right, it does work in its present state. It's not bad, I'm just nitpicking its aesthetics

Weren't you asking if you can make this game into a server a while back?

In answer to your question though, the weapon Trading Cards/Manual is included. There are also NPCs in various places where you can watch a battle between them.

I have a website for the card game from when it was released (and subsequently failed due to some issues that no longer exist) but it needs to be updated. Once I find the time to do so, it'll show where to get the cards, how to use the different features, explain the basics, and give tips on how to play (pictures included).

I give Thor a lot of credit for helping to get the game released again, but let us not forget about DarkCloud (RIP) who did a fair amount of the original work.

i still don't understand how to play it- can you explain?

The simplest possible way to describe it is that when placing a card next to one of your opponents card, you deal damage if the number on your card facing your opponents card is higher then the number it has facing your card. The damage dealt or received is the difference between those numbers.
