It's funny that my first reaction was also: "where is the forums button?"

There are plenty of games that either do not have forums or they are not worth going on.

One game I played had your own window for smack talking. You could leave messages to wind your opponents up it was brilliant. I ground a good level and then someone stole my account. About a year later I checked back on it and the feature had gone. So I never played it much. I was surprised at how much it had added to the whole experience.

I am amazed at how few players we seem to have in the arena compared to the amounts of views given to the quite frankly bizarre posts on here?

I had played Alteil for quite a while before posting. I couldn't make out most of the abbreviations or jargon, but searching threw older posts for info on cards was invaluable.

I think new players will explore the new sight and find it eventually. At first the game hooked me so bad it was painful. I could see it's complexities and was determined to master it, and to do that I knew I had to find as much info as possible. So the game does kinda force you here in some respects.

I like the new page. Obvious bugs in the "browse cards" display aside, it's far better. Well done guys!
Any chance there will be some infoblocks aswell on the frontpage? Ya know, some sellingpoint phrases to pull players in. (like mentioning free daily cards lotto)

Basicly, if I had just found the game and looked at the graphics it says you can be evil or burn a whole village down. Which is is nice. ;th2
Look a little closer and you could even be all watery or why not be all sunny and nice?

The new index page is not responsive designed.

According to W3School Statistics over 90% of internet users have a screen resolution higher than 1024x768. I use 1280x1024 and the site looks big and need to scroll right to check if I missed something. In the same resolution can´t manage to see the names of the bottom boxes and only see some part of the images.
Havn´t checked from tablet or smartphone but if the plan is release the game for those devices, at least the index page (hopefully the whole new site) should be responsive

Other than a forum button, I'm also missing the front page news on the new main page. The old main page is better for seeing what events are currently active (yeah you can see it in the newsletters, but seeing at as soon as you enter the site is more convenient). The new one does look good though, so it might attract new players better than the old one.

Have there been changes to the size of the new main page? I forgot to check last time I was able to use a computer, but the page fits perfectly on the iPod touch screen.
