When setting up field presence in Alteil, one of the most basic principles upon which many files operate is that you should have a strong front line. Usually, these front line cards are units with a RNG stat of 1. This way, both front lines tend to beat on each other, and the rest of the cards on the field are for support of some kind. What happens if we take away all those short-range cards...?

You heard right!  February is a treasure trove of obscure non-holidays. Throw Red Beans at Oni Day, or as they say in the East, Setsubun. Basically, you throw red Azuki Beans at Oni to drive away the evil spirits. Check out the wikipedia page.

EX: 5 is coming to an end, so it seems like a good time as any to do a Double Gran Mirage Master Friday.

Also, since Set 6 cards aren't in there yet, we'll be adding those.

Even in the face of heavy handicap, there are viable strategies that can be played so long as you have the right cards. Sometimes even a single copy of those cards is enough, even in Alteil. That's what this Quest proved. It's not easy, that's true. But it can still be done.

Rankings - A Tale in Three Chapters
Written by Edgar Figaro   
Monday, 25 January 2010 18:54

Actually Rankings is only really one chapter. The first two are the sordid tale of me and Microsoft. The pain, fire, and anguish I had to go through to get my Box of X back to me. But worry no more fellow Iczers! just like Bavmorda stole Elora Danan and Willow snatched her back, I, Edgar Figaro snatched my X-Box out of the hands of the nefarious Microsoft Corporation.

So this weeks thinly associated tie-in message is to persevere and never give up on your goal. To get your X-Box back from the Microsoft Service Center, errrr, I mean to top the weekly Rankings.

As always, anyone who has had to deal with the Red Ring of death AND fought in the arena at least once this week will receive at least 10 gran. Listed below are your top 5 ranked Iczers, top 3 guilds, guilds that have become official.

TOP 5 WEEKLY RANKED ICZERS

  1. babyeater

Sad but true, our most popular EX pack ever is only in the shop for another week. It's my personal recommendation to get it. It's not often the stars align to have such a nice match up of EX cards and Starters.
