Gencon Day 1 - Where Everybody Knows Your Name
Written by Edgar Figaro   
Thursday, 13 August 2009 13:11

Well no not really. Although, alot of people knew us at Otakon this year and this is our second year at Gencon so we should get a big turnout. So everyone WILL know our name and when we enter the bar, everyone will shout NORM! I mean ALTEIL!

Today we'll be here from 10-6 training new players in the Training arena. Remember that place? Remember when there was no single player arena? Ahhhh..., the good old days. Anyways Gencon is about to get underway. Some of our players may be here dropping by. We'll make sure to post on any Alteil player sightings.

Just another small reminder that the EX: Vordore Challenge of the Fortnight is scheduled to end tonight at 11:59 PM EST. Given the fact that my reminder and judging of previous fornight challenges is a bit late, I will be willing to accept entries beyond the cutoff. Just be sure to get them in within a reasonable time frame. Let's say within 24 hours of the cutoff time tonight. Good luck with those Files, Iczers!

Half of Team Alteil will be at the world famous Gencon Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. We were there last year and were welcome with open arms. Lots of good costumes, lots of honest excitement. We're amped. We're going to go for a new record in con signups. 100,500(Divided by 1,000) NEW REGISTERED USERS!!!! So that's ummm... around a... hundred or so. So 100 NEW REGISTERED USERS! It's never been done before(except at the last con we were at)!

So anyways, if you're going to be there, come to Booth 333 in the gaming section of the main hall and show your support. We'll be there with free mini-posters and free in-game prizes for new sign-ups. You can even get your picture taken with the only and only Mr. Keseran Pasaran. For anyone not in attendence, we'll be training new blood Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 10-6 in the training arena. Come on in and help out... but be nice! Don't want to scare off any new players.

Okay, the community is putting together a team tournament this Saturday the 15th. If it works, it would be awesome to do more events like this one.  As some extra incentive, the GM's have put up some small prizes.  You can read all about it on this forum thread.  If you're going to be around, it would be awesome to show this event some real support!
Rankings, Rankings, RANKINGS! You're a Rank Machine!

Sorry, too much Dance Dancing has finally taken a toll on me. I'm seeing arrow patterns in the street, combo multipliers at the top of view, and I think the crowds of people are chanting my praises as I reach triple digit combo heights. I'm getting really good at the game now though. I can competently finish 5 star difficulty songs and half notes are becoming manageable.

So what does this mean to me, the local Alteil player, you may be asking? DDR is mostly about pattern recognition and preparing for the upcoming combo. Sound familiar? Someone throws out a Soul Bind when they have closed cards on the field, probably going to be an Invisible Druid Soul Skill coming your way. Knowing what the popular meta-decks and combos can help you turn the battle around. Some are obvious, others require you to take the bait. So fellow Iczers, always come prepared to battle and someday you'll be able to best Mavel.

As always, anyone who has fought in the arena at least once gets a minimum of 10 gran. Listed below are your top 5 Iczers and top 3 guilds! Enjoy.

Please note that we are working on improving the rankings. Excuse any errors or design flaws.

Summer Cards are on the Way
Written by Logress   
Monday, 10 August 2009 12:27

It's about time for our seasonal card event.  For those of you who are new, usually we run one of these 4-6 times a year, for holidays or just seasons. The idea is we pick four cards and swap them out with new artwork for about 2 weeks or so. This event is summer themed, so that means Yukata (Japanese robes worn at night for summer festivals) and swimsuits!  This affects the cards you own, so there's no need to do anything. Just log in and check your cards to see if you can spot the new art!  Note: This does not affect the "Starter" versions of the cards.

Summer Seasonal Art: goes from Wednesday, August 12th, through Wednesday August 26th.

Also, next week we'll put together a CONTEST to see if some of you can win permanent versions of the summer art cards!

Alteil Reborn with Improved Game Engine and New Features!
Written by Logress   
Friday, 07 August 2009 14:36

So, I'm sure our site regulars do not find the title of this post to be very surprising, but I think all the major stuff is in place, so it's time to start sending out our Press Releases and news bytes. For those who are interested, below is our official announcement.

It’s a whole new game! Alteil has been overhauled inside and out, transforming your experience.  New players have all new ways to learn, veterans have all new ways to improve, and everyone in between has more options and more ways to play!

-Single Player Mode: Want to learn or just perfect the flow of your new Card File?  Mix it up with our computer controlled opponents for a while before taking it to the big leagues.

-Duel Spectators:  Now you can watch the experts duel! Take in a match for fun, or to learn advanced tricks. Chat with others ‘in the bleachers’. You can also still have Private Duels if you’re shy, but you get bonus EXP and FM for letting in spectators.

-New Avatar System: Avatars now have a ton more options and eight layers!  New categories include Armor, Hair and Backpack. To celebrate, we’ve added dozens of new Avatar items into the shop. You’ve got to check out all the new options!

-New Game Engine: The back end has been replaced with a more advanced one that will increase game stability, enable new skill types and the addition of future upgrades.

-New Website:  Our sleek new website makes it easy to keep up with new releases, check out info on cards and read strategy articles. The new design actually makes it fun to read news!

-New Rulebook:  The various how-to’s and tutorials on our main site have been tossed out in favor of a single, unified, well-organized rule book. If you want to do anything from just skim the basics (with lots of pictures), to figure out how to micro-manage an obscure timing rule, the new Rulebook is the place for you!

-Demo Mode: Always wanted to try Alteil but didn’t want to make an account until you were sure you liked it? Demo mode lets you one-click to a battle with a trial character. Give the link to your friends to show them Alteil!
