For our April free serial, we wanted to do something special – give away the perfect card. The Japanese team put their heads together and brought out all the data of card use on all Ateil cards for the past two years, hoping to find some patterns to indicate the kinds of skills and abilities our users liked most. Surely there must be something that stood out – Combos? Field control? Last minute comebacks?
Meanwhile, I took all forum posts for the past two years and drew up some graphs about most notable topics, what got the most views, and even what words were repeated most. Then, undercover as my Alt, Low-grass, I inconspicuously chatted up users in-game to try and figure out what people would REALLY like to see as the next big card.
Then we all got together for an all-night Skype call to compile the data, and as we sifted through the numbers a pattern gradually began to emerge. Could we have done it? Could we have come up with the PERFECT ALTEIL CARD!?
I don’t like to pat myself on the back too hard, but we may really have come through this time. Design-wise, there’s a lot to like here. GaoGaiGirl put together the art as a finishing touch, and now we are able to present to you the best Alteil Card Ever in a free Serial:
It’ll only be available for about 24 hours, so you better hurry and enter it. And, you’re welcome.
