Soul Card effect wordings

Postby ANIMEniac » Fri Aug 22, 2008 5:18 pm

Ok, there sees to be inconsistencies with some cards wording and effect.

For Eska, it says "revive THEN do this". If oyu don't pull first effect, the second effect doesn't trigger.

However, I just got hit with a Dical. His effect is turn friendly unit hp = 0, then make another unit hp=0. Same wording, yet Dical effect will work if your opponent has no units. Is it a bug or bad wording on effects? Other cards have similar wording, I want to know what will work and not.

Okay, the "then" or "after that" wording means "do A then B happens." If A works, then B happens. If A doesn't work, then B doesn't happen. Even if B can't happen then A still works, if possible.
Does that make sense? Or did Dical violate one of those rules?

nope:

"Set target friendly unit to HP=0. Then set target enemy unit to HP=0."

Dical broke that rule in the tournament today. Opponent had a closed unit, i hit direct. Dical Soul activated and my unit go hit with it.

Dical has always been like that...it is confusing. I own Eska and Dical and totally pw3nd myself in a match because I assumed Eska worked like Dical.

I would understand if they are meant to work like that, it just needs to be differentiated with the wording to illustrate that.

Waiting for approval from japanese, planning to change wording to make it less confusing...
Sorry about that, but sometimes the Japanese wording is confusing too...
