If you've ever been to a community tournament, you know of the endless quest to use cards that are not 'used ALL the time' or cards that don't 'show up EVERY match in Folrart.' But, there's really no way to know for sure if a card is in high use or not. UNTIL NOW. The ever-awesome Milo has created a new feature based on some code Lupos made for me a while back, the UNDERDOG LIST. This list keeps track of the bottom 75% or so cards of cards in use by High-RP players, so you can check them out any time.
Yes, I know that you'll see some very strong cards on the list. There are a lot of reasons a card might be on the list, and weakness or lack of support in the present card sets are not the only ones. Some files just go out of style because there are easier to play files that appeal to the same type of gamer, some have a particularly hard time with a File that's particularly prevalent at the moment. Some are pretty good, but have an RP 'ceiling' that's hard to get past, leaving higher RP players unlikely to use it, even though a lower RP player might find it pretty solid.
A few facts about the list: it's pretty stable. We'll be refreshing it only every two weeks. Why? Well, if you challenge someone to meet you in Training in ten minutes with a file using all underdog cards, and by the time he gets there the underdog list has changed-- that kind of defeats the purpose of the challenge.
There is also an UNDERDOG SOUL CARD LIST. But, it's not quite as useful at the moment because it displays grims.
You can check out the UNDERDOG LISTS at any time by going to GAME INFO -> STRATEGY on the left side of the main page.
If there's one guy playing one file 2000 times per day in Folrart, it won't effect the numbers much.
This list has no effect on the game (for the moment), it's just another tool for strategy and discussion. I'm looking forward to see how you all use it! http://www.alteil.com/index.php/strateg ... play-cardshttp://www.alteil.com/index.php/strateg ... soul-cards
