Re: Revival of HLP Cards - Post here to become a card!

you get all damage halved...permanently.

Just compare my card with others that also have 3 ability points..or less.

The loss of discarded cards is significant because other abilities can use them or even recycle them
So one negative side effect, and a significant one.
Next, no attack on this turn - another negative side effect.

For what? +1 attack or defense?

Dark hunter gets a permanent -3 to enemy defense.

Even nukes (1 abiltiy point) is better.. Sure, destroy the card, but what card can survive 14 damage? Nuke pretty much has the power to destory any card in game (which makes sense...nuke and all.. :lol: .. speaking of which, a nuke isn't really a precision weapon)

So yeah, I'm a little disapointed.

You can consider this a rant or movement to nerf all the other cards and beef mine...but it's really a balance thing. I'd be doing the same rant if I felt somone elses card was underpowered. Take it as you wish.

Re: Revival of HLP Cards - Post here to become a card!
Borders are always black unless you are level 8 and up.  Also, you can't have 5 ability points unless you have 10 as your power level.  Your maximum is 3.  Which stats do you want those two points to go to?

Trashman: All right, I'll make it a +1 bonus, 1 discard, and you can attack that turn.

Edit: Updated the existing cards to buff TrashMan's ability and fix Scuddie's name.

If you just stuck with my first interpretation of the abiltiy you wouldn't have had to change the text at all :p And IMHO, it sounded more balanced.
Oh well, if it's not too much trouble, I'd like to ask you to change the image to the other one I posted..I'd like to save the meaner looking onfe for my LVL9 card..and it's coming soon..only 300 posts to go :P

EDIT - just noticed the insignias in hte corner.

One comment on those - they are a good idea to increase possibel combinations and effects, bzt are IHMO limited by hte fact that they are restricted/tied to a few bigger projects hosted on HLP. There are a dozen great projects (like Robotech saga, Shadows of Liat, Lost Souls, etc..) that are hosted elsewhere that are left out becouse of this.
Putting all projects would be a clutter, so how about another approach - one that describes the whole community a bit better:

FREDer
Modeler
Artists
Coder
Writer
Lurker
Spambot
etc..

you can think of more probably.
This devides the members into more categories for more diverse effects.

one can even put these in the other corner while keeping the team tag, either for visual recognition or aditional abilities or something.
Thoughts?

Re: Revival of HLP Cards - Post here to become a card!
The gist is to try and keep it simple.

General descriptions of the members role in the community apply to everyone. Just a few select projects don't.

Just think of the possibilities.
a LURKER might be immune to some effects/abilities, etc...

you could even give special persistant abilities to every "profesion"

A lurker might be able to attack without retaliation.
A modeler could get a +1 bonus to attack for instance (modeling in BIG guns..LOL)
A artist could get a defense bonus (I'm painting thick-looking armor)

I dunno, I'm jsut throwing ideas out there.

Re: Revival of HLP Cards - Post here to become a card!
An a FREDder? There could be a card called "Insane Campaign", activated only by a FREDder: the adversaries will not be able to attack until they complete the campaign(it will take time, depending on the level of ability).

:nervous:

Re: Revival of HLP Cards - Post here to become a card!
"BOE mission bonanza" - activated only by a low level FREDer
drives players insane :lol:

"FRED Mastery" - ability to swap the card being attacked with another when activated (before the actual attack is dealt).

"HTL beauty" - only by a modeler. Mezmerizes players and they lose their turn. :drevil:

That is not necessarily true. You're going to see some BoE missions in INFA, and I can guarantee that the author isn't a low level FREDder! :P

Touche! :nod:

Now that I think about it I got a few BOE-ish missions and I ain't such a bad FREDer myself.

Re: Revival of HLP Cards - Post here to become a card!
This is going to be tricky to work out, but here goes:

Everyone who already posted their stuff, please name your profession.  They are:
• Coder
• FREDder
• Modeler
• Artist
• Lurker
• Spammer
• Pilot (you don't do anything else but simply play the game)

The professions won't have any immediate bonuses or disadvantages, but will be used extensively in abilities and the like.

I say again, PLEASE POST A PROFESSION!  IF YOU DON'T, I WILL DEFAULT YOU TO A PILOT!  Also, don't lie about your profession.  For instance: Snail, if you say anything other than spammer, I'll do horrible things to your card.

Hmm, ok, what would I be, then?

And, BTW, Snail will lie about his profession, just to see what you're going to do to his card.  :lol:  - maybe.

It's FREDder, not FREDder! ;)

And divide FREDders is sub-classes: Mad 160+ kbs FREDders designer of cutscenes(like me!), average FREDders and less than 40 kbs missions designers(like Snail! :lol:).
