The new half-boxes starring Holy Chain Soldier Aisha and Rusted Colossus are up in the shop, and the Card List. They will be up for TWO WEEKS (cue Arnold from Total Recall).
Each of these will be 1000 gran and will contain one copy of either ‘Holy Chain Soldier / Aisha’ or ‘Rusted Colossus’ (your choice), one guaranteed 4-star, 2 guaranteed 3 stars, and 27 additional cards between 1 and 5 stars — for 31 total cards. Although three copies of the new cards are not necessary to make them playable, especially Colossus.
Here is the rundown
One day behind because I was preparing the special EX, but everyone should now have your 5 of 7 prizes and Ranking Gran!
Now, lets look at those arenas:
In all the craziness last year, with the Special EX cards, and the Annarose cards, and bonus cards for Completing a set… there were two cards that slipped through the cracks. Which is too bad, because they are both cards I like a lot, both for art and for concept. SO, this looks like a good opportunity to do two new Special EX half-boxes.
The new Logress’ Choice EX half-boxes will be going up in the Shop Wednesday, and they’ll be up for two weeks. Each of these will be 1000 gran and will contain one copy of either ‘Holy Chain Soldier / Aisha’ or ‘Rusted Colossus’ (your choice), one guaranteed 4-star, 2 guaranteed 3 stars, and 27 additional cards between 1 and 5 stars — for 31 total cards.
Now, let’s take a look at that art:
I know some of you like to wait until the last minute, but this is it… this is the last minute. Er, day.
Sunday’s the last day for EX 11, don’t forget– or most popular EX set in a long time! It’s in the shop under EX Packs and there’s also a complete box as well.
There are signups for two additional community tournaments in the Community Tournament Forum!
Pauper’s Tournament — 1* and 2* (common) cards only! TBA, but looks like the week after next.
This is a great way for free and low-spending players to show off their skill and competitive ability. But, its a great challenge for everyone.
1-Copy Madness — no multiples of any card! Tuesday Jan. 29th at 9:30 am EST
Guaranteed to be a VERY different experience from the daily grind in Folrart, also probably a FAST moving tournament so a good way to pick up some Point Cards.
Remember, participating in community tournaments lands you point cards, as does volunteering to help or to be an alt! Just go to the Community Tournament Forum and sign up! With so many tournaments happening, you’ll be able to collect point cards at a much faster rate than relying on events like 5 of 7!
It’s the end of an era… if an era can be two months. EX 11, one of the most popular EX Sets we’ve ever had, will only be up in the CARD SHOP until the end of this upcoming weekend! Notable for equally good use from all four spheres, and being a good match for a lot of top files, it’s not something you want to miss! And, the Oeste’s New Clothes avatar is still available for those who buy the Complete Box. I’ll be giving out the rest of those next week.
Everyone should now have your weekly ranking Gran. In addition, I’ve given out the Snake Pets to everyone who bought a seasonal Pack over the weekend. AND while I’m talking about STUFF, don’t forget a 5 of 7 begins today!
Now, let’s check out this week’s ranking:
We’ve got a new Forum up, for Community Tournaments that everyone should check out!
You can learn all about playing in Community Tournaments, and also how you can run one yourself.
In fact, there is already one in the works, a Starter card tournement on January 26 10:00 pm EST. Sign ups are now!
Community Tournaments are a great alternative to dueling in Folrart. You can earn cards, Point Cards and other prizes in bracketed dueling environments, meet new Iczers, help out the Tournament Hosts for more rewards and generally participate in the Alteil community. Its also great just to show up and watch battles during tournament time. The Community Tournaments have ban lists and other limitations that will expose you to some interesting new files.
OK, time for a 5 of 7, as part of the New New Years holiday event! Now if only I had a good card to give away for Year of the Snake.
Giant Gorilla! No, wait. Giant Forest Snake! LV4 monsters is not exactly meta, but its a great tech unit for mids and bigs! Plus, actually a giant snake. No stretch here.
To be a partcipant, just duel on 5 of the 7 days in a week, starting Monday (IE — THE 21ST. Make sure your duel goes over 10 turns. Do that, and you get 5 POINT CARDS and a copy of Giant Forest Snake.
In honor of the year of the snake, we’ve added a Snake Avatar Pet to the shop. In addition, anyone who buys a Seasonal Pack or New Year’s Seasonal Pack this weekend will get one free! (I’ll give it out Monday night,)
