Rom:
- Work on errata

Nerf overdose & buncles pls

Sean:
- Standard maintenance (weekly newsletter, 5 of 7, etc)

I assume 5 of 7 are going to be a weekly thing now? because that would be awesome.

Dave:
- Submit Kickstarter proposal timeline

I take it you're using kickstarter for extra funding?

One poster = the masses in a damn small comunity.


If there were a "masses" they should listen to it, since not listening to players is what got them here.
I like Alteil a lot! Alteil is awesome! HAHAHAHA

On the topic of feedback, I'm strongly considering incorporating this into next sprint.

If that's true, you should have been banned right?

Listening to the masses only works when they use reason and not emotion.

I can't press this issue hard enough. It was needed like yesterday.
If you ever hold a survey under your current users (highly recommended btw) you'll quickly discover there's a lack of motivation to actively play multiple games. The game is fun, but you're quickly done with it again once you run into a bad matchup. You need to put out more goals. More incentive.
Just some ideas:
- Weekly rewarding 'x'-played games. Condition: Games where you press Give Up don't count.
Play 10 games = 5point cards. 20 games = 10point cards. Etc. (**** weekly Gran; nobody can keep track of it. I can't even tell you what i gained this week. There's absolutely nothing holding me back from not caring and quit playing for that day.)
- Rewarding "Playingstreaks". Condition: 9 Turns minimum. Repeatable.
5 continious games (within 20min from eachother)= 1point card.
- "Underdog". Condition: 9 Turns minimum. 1 Week cooldown.
Win 10 games= 10point cards.
(Hidden incentives: They pop-up like the lvl-up screen after a condition is met. Reward can be anything like Exp/Gran/FM/PtCards/Avatar item.)
- "Fast Learner". Condition: Between lvl25~50. Gain 10 levels in 1 day.
- "On a Roll". Condition: Gain your first winstreak. One time achievement.
- "High Roller". Condition: Gain your first Blue Star. One time achievement.
- "You got Skillz". Condition: Gain Silver Star. One time achievement.
- "Breaking the Game". Condition: Golden Star. One time achievement.
- "The bigger they are". Condition: Beat someone 50 levels higher then you.
- "Tough nut". Condition: Beat someone 150RP higher then you.
- Etc. I can make a gazillion of these, lol.
It's stuff like this that'll keep things interesting. It makes you feel like you achieved something with your time.
Igor D:
- Finish up chat
Already pointed out how much this'll help feeling closer connected to a game. Let alone the interaction is good for newbies to ask questions.

Romdeau:
- Work on errata
Changing up the meta and opening more 'folrart viable' options is always good to stir things up. I got a feeling you'll achieve none of those goals though. No offense Rom, it's just history repeating itself.

Mark, Viral:
- Get advertisement portal online
- Work with mark to get advertisement portal online
Advertising! Just make sure you launch it at the apropiate time. Don't wield in new players when everything is still broken and cut-throat. Projects improving player experience like AuctionHouse and achievements should be prioritized first. (even though i know you want more revenue quickly...)

Merideth:
- Create art assets when needed
What happened to my 'landscape-changing' background idea here? Where Alteil background changes with the time of day. I thought GGG was interested in it... And current Color scheme could be better. Loading screens could have some anime related artwork. The only thing that's dressing up your game with art are banners of events. There's a difference between functional looking (without distractions and to the point)and straight out depressing. I'm telling you as a graphic designer/illustrator this game doesn't look very fun. This Merideth better skip some more nights of sleep. ;)

We do have skunkworks art going on in the background that's not officially listed (example: this concept art were submitted this morning by a Joanne (you are seeing it before GGG accepts/rejects it): 1 ,2 , 3 , 4, 5) but what we are working on for the real product this sprint are actually entire new site from scratch, not just minor changes like those above.

Also, Merideth has been sacrificing way too much sleep to get stuff done. I appreciate her tenacity but she really hasn't gotten more than 3 hours sleep.

The new chat and pages will go live on the 1st, regardless of how much is actually finished (provided everything marked as "Must have" is ready).

I hope the card links are kept simple for whateveer card lists you implement.

I like the current style. It's absolutely nice and simple as it is.
Please don't do something like this: http://alteil.apocoplay.com/Skunkworks/cpl-009.jpg

Since you're on the topic of card screens, one big thing I'd like to see happen is having the ingame screen show all of the card ability text rather than cutting text off.

Yea I would like this too, if you can make it where it doesn't rely on what our browser's font is but instead it's all ingame
