Hi. I am a newbie as well.
Try to go to the Iczer tab and then click chat. (the jabber chat, not the chat in flash)
Also try to read the forum (I am still clueless about things people wrote in forum. newbie guide or not.)
Try to save gran to buy a pre-build. (I brought the ork pre-built. People say it is a good deck... but I still lose all of the time. 35 win 150 lost.)
Don't recycle things unless you get 3 copies. (I still don't know what cards I need or don't need)
May be buying grans will help you.
Join torunaments to get point cards. Enough Point cards = you get any card that you want. (... i have 89 point cards now. not sure what cards to get.)
I heard that gowen rush is the cheapest deck to make (but i don't know how to make one that can compete with other deck at this moment)
People say gowen rush is boring.
I think the most difficult thing is:
1. no newbie like you and I
2. So, we have to learn a lot to catch up
3. Either others, or us, have no time to teach/learn all of the combos quick enough. (I guess we have to learn to beat most of the common decks too.)
4. Since there are so few people playing now, the match are seperated by levels, not by win/lose ratio.
5. And, we get a level when someone quit a game and let us win, although we lose really a lot.
what to do if we don't get the card that the forum thread talk about? hmm... may be you can figure that out.
which means... I hope we can make a wiki about the combos, or the things we learn.
I would never expect people to share their best combo or trade secrets though. But... every bit will help.
The wiki at wikia doesn't talk about combos, and strategy.
Most people will ask you to watch video or read the forum...
I am not sure if things will change after horizon starts.
I hope so. May be a ton of new people will come in the first week.
I also heard that they are going to put less cards in the new game at the beginning.
At least watching others play this game is enjoyable.
The cards looks nice, and most players play well.
