General Game Discussion / #InfinityGoals
« on: July 11, 2015, 08:24:46 AM »
So I'm gonna start a little poll today. I wanna know what everyone hopes to get out of  playing Infinity Wars. Whether you wanna be the champion or just make some fun decks and chill out. I'll let you guys vote twice since I'm sure a lot of people have more than one reason for playing.

I personally enjoy talking to the community greatly, and I also love playing ranked and trying to be the best player I can be.

General Game Discussion / Worst Tilt Story
« on: June 30, 2015, 04:08:11 PM »
Going on tilt is a gambling term that is basically losing a few games and getting salty. Then playing more and more to turn the odds back in your favor until you inevitably end up much worse than where you started.

So today hasn't been the best day in ranked for me. Dropped 3 matches in a row and a little over 100 points and the familiar feeling of  "Going on tilt" is coming back. Luckily I've experienced it before so I'm just gonna stay away from the game today so it doesn't get worse. (Probably, it's only 11am. I mean how much worse could it possibly get >.>)

Anyway, that isn't even my worst tilt story. The worst was in the first ranked season. I was ranked fairly high, probably around 10th-20th and I think Mill had just started getting popular. I generally used FD mixes back then and wasn't familiar with the deck. I proceeded to drop 8 matches in a row to the damn thing. Each time thinking that it must be some kind of fluke....it wasn't, and I was being an idiot. By the end of the day I was down around 400 points for ranked. Learned a good lesson that day though.

So what's your worst story of going on tilt? Doesn't have to just be ranked. Doesn't even have to about IW. Just talk about one of those times you just wouldn't throw in the towel, and wound up feeling like an idiot.

General Game Discussion / Ranked Season Goals
« on: June 19, 2015, 07:02:34 AM »
So the new ranked season will officially start up in about 17 hours. We all know it's a long season, and the potential 4 to 6 months can be a hell of a grind with a ton of ups and downs. Looking into this next season though things look bright. Most would agree Oppression looks to be a set that can really shake up the meta.

So what're you aspiring to in this next season? Do you wanna topple the wizard from his thrown? Maybe you just wanna see your name on the big board for the first time, or maybe you couldn't care less about ranked and just wanna play casually.

My personal hopes for this next season are to at the very least compete for the crown. From what I'm hearing a lot of top players will really be throwing their hats in the ring this season to try to be number 1. We shall indeed see who has the testicular fortitude (or fallopian fortitude) to rise to the occasion. So good luck and have fun to everyone as another big season crashes towards us.

Deck Building / Jehova's Androids (2 GI/OS)
« on: June 14, 2015, 07:27:07 PM »

(3 cards missing from the picture are Boxes)

EDIT: Deck has been updated after another little over a week of testing.

So the basis of this deck is a ton of soft removal mixed with aggressive early-mid game. Same as with a lot of genesis main decks. The bomb bots mix very well with the martyrs and cassials for aggressive plays. The OS drone is a strong turn 2 play that can create problems for your opponent early on. The Tyras create a great move for finishing as well as the Harbingers. Use the luccas as much as possible in combination with CTA and Box. Treasure Hunter creates a solid turn 3 play so that Bomb-bot isn't your only option. He's very helpful in setting up combinations and if you have extra combo cards in hand they're easy discards.

From testing, this deck will pretty much never lose to an exile/dod mixture. The fairly high stats of Genesis creatures mixed with the main deck martyrs/cassials as well as having flying just tends to be too much.

I haven't been able to test against it as much as I wanted, but from what I've seen it wins about half the games or so when matched with fd/os. A lot of those games tend to be about having a strong early game, and not relying too much on one big creature due to their soft removal. Of course having the CTAs and Boxes to reset their Klore is always very helpful, and having big troops to match theirs is a great help.

Doesn't seem to handle the matchup with 3 OS very well. However, it's very possible I just played a lot of those games badly. If you can keep them from getting their forerunners and whatnot going it'll probably be fine as long as you don't get overwhelmed.

Has a pretty decent matchup with Tinkercide due to being able to reset stuff at will a lot of the time. As long as you play it right and are able to make some dodges it should work out alright.

So try out the deck. It's a lot of fun, and in my personal opinion I think it's ranked viable.

EDIT: Updated deck again to make it have a stronger early game. Command zone reflects that a bit better.

General Game Discussion / OPpression
« on: June 10, 2015, 08:44:54 PM »
So what card has made you feel Oppressed in your time of playing Infinity Wars? Does Tibat still give you nightmares from when Mill was big? Maybe Shrine to the Heavens is more like your own personal hell. Basically, what cards just frustrated the hell out of you when they were played? Whether they've been changed or not. You can even just talk about certain deck types from past metas if you want.

I remember back when Oblivion was at its absolute peak. That deck just made me wanna shoot myself because I knew I was in for 20 turns of stalling and misery. Also, FD/SoA becoming big unnerved me a bit....mainly because it was so much damn faster than my preferred FD/GI build.

General Game Discussion / QotD: What kind of pokemon are you?
« on: April 01, 2015, 03:23:03 PM »
First off, mood music for taking the test https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDNzyytIw24

This is a very important player psychology test that Lightmare has demanded I undertake with the playerbase. This will help them in the future for knowing how to help us, and what kind of Pokeblocks to feed us.

Question 1: What kind of Pokemon are you?

Question 2: How do you do the things you do?

I am a Butterfree. I am destined to be useful right at the start, but then I just get tossed in the trash when better things come along.

EDIT: Oh god, I never should have done this. Now that song is stuck in my head q.q

General Game Discussion / QotD: Let me hear your battlecry!
« on: March 31, 2015, 11:19:23 PM »
Today is all about getting PUMPED. Say you have a big game coming up. Maybe you made a bet with your brother and the winner gets the top bunk while the other has to sleep in the barn again.

What do you listen to to get you in the mood for playing? Maybe some light jazz? Maybe the screams of the innocent. I'm not here to judge.

I personally prefer some kind of trance techno music. Nothing too overwhelming where I'm focused on the music, but enough to drown out the voices in my head for half an hour. Swedish House Mafia for an example. Alternatively the Frozen soundtrack does wonders for my midgame.

General Game Discussion / QotD: I Wish I Was a Little Bit Taller
« on: March 27, 2015, 01:56:26 PM »
Today's question of the day will be a fun one. If you could change any card's effect or stats, what would they be and why? This can be keeping its current effect and adding onto it, or replacing the effect, or whatever you want.

Mine is simple. I would give Genesis Spy Doublestrike  ;)

General Game Discussion / QotD: IW Natural Disaster
« on: March 26, 2015, 01:31:49 PM »
In honor of having a tornado in my town yesterday (no one died. A few buildings down I think. Patio furniture hit my house though >.>) I figured we might see which card is the end all be all strongest and most devastating. I will leave this up to your own criteria. Is it the big doomsayers of Calamity and Oblivion? Maybe a smaller combination that loves to leave devastation in its wake (screw you Shrine)

Personally I'm a big fan of high drop cards. Maybe it's a hangover from watching yugioh and hearing them shout about their trump cards and whatnot. My hot #1 bae at the moment is  Vasir, The Demon Prince. Between the art and high stats I just love it. The fact that it's a mercenary also gives it a lot of versatility with the ability to just slide it in a verore or exile splash deck.

General Game Discussion / QotD: Hopes and Dreams and Stuff
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:59:39 PM »
Today's question of the day is about hopes and dreams. Specifically, what would you like to see Infinity Wars become one day? Would you like to see it become as big as Hearthstone with everyone and their grandma playing it? Would you prefer it stay a close knit community with hundreds as opposed to thousands of players? I would prefer this discussion wouldn't just become a "I just want them to fix the bugs" thread.

Personally I want Infinity Wars to become huge. Mainly because I'm a fame whore and obviously the best player to ever exist  ::)

General Game Discussion / QotD: If Factions Were Countries
« on: March 24, 2015, 03:34:03 PM »
I remember a thread from back when I was starting out where people were talking about what faction is equal to which country. So in the true spirit of video games, let's recycle the idea until it's not fun anymore!

I'll start. Obviously the Overseers are America. Lots of guns, bringing Order to the world one Orion death at a time  ;)

General Game Discussion / QotD: Favorite Factions to Mix
« on: March 23, 2015, 06:42:28 PM »
Pretty simple. What're your favorite factions to mix and why?

I personally enjoy GI and Exiles because then I can pull off Genesis Spy/Demonic Presence shenanigans :3

General Game Discussion / QotD: What Got You into Infinity Wars?
« on: March 22, 2015, 05:18:44 PM »
So I've decided I'm going to start doing a fun little thing here on the forums called Question of the Day. Most will probably be light hearted, but I may do a serious one if events call for it. Today's question is simple. What got you into this game we all love so much?

What actually got me into the game was just checking for tcg's on Steam, but once I started playing what kept me addicted was seeing all these awesome strategies people were using. I remember one of the first decks I played against was a Orion/MU02 deck and I just thought it was so damn cool. The helpful community just kept me coming back for more, and now here we are 8 months later :D

If anyone has suggestions for questions of the day please shoot me a pm. Cause god knows I'm gonna end up running out of these things.

What's your favorite card and why? I'm partial to Genesis Spy. Annoying my opponent with it is still just too much fun :D
