First things first, big congrats to our top Iczer for set 4, Galandros. Quite a feet. I'd love to have something clever or amusing like those HILARIOUS EdgarFigaro posts *coughsarcasmcaugh* but it's late in the day and I've got to rush out the door so you'll have to settle for my subtle jabs at EdgarNotFunnygaros humor.

For those too lazy to go look our top 5 are as follows

Ranking Iczer Name  Rating Points Max Rating Points

1 Galandros 2137 2188

2 InigoMonto 2120 2235

For those of you who want to see the whole list and find out where you landed on it jump on over here. If you can't find your name you may have had 1500 or less and just aren't there. :(

So that's it, gotta run. Big Congratulations again to all those who ranked.

EdgarFigaro isn't funny. 

P.S.  Will fix the name formatting monday. Not sure why that happened.

Set 5 PR

Friday, 28 August 2009 22:03

I know this isn't anything like news to our site regulars at this point, but everything's all happy with Set 5 now, so it's time for the OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE!





Set 5 is here! An all new card set expansion based around theme Files.  New cards make all kinds of theme Files possible using cards from previous sets, while new File types can be created just with Set 5 Cards!

The battle for the Holy Realm reaches a new level with the arrival of smarter command model Magic Dolls, who cut through the enemy forces. Then the army of the Shrine Knights arrive, rallying to the cause of Folrart. Caught in between, Rivera realizes her destiny of the Beast King and releases her true power! But the great battle shakes the walls of the Holy Realm shrine, awakening something beyond the gate.  The final gate guardian appears in a nimbus of light that envelops the battlefield. Will anything remain when the smoke clears?

  • 60 new cards! 15 in each Sphere of influence, including new Characters, Units and Grimoires!
  • Set 5 Packs and Set 5 Boxes are available in the Shop, at the same price as Set 1, 2, 3 and 4 Packs and Boxes.
  • Set 5 Cards are available in the Card Lottery.
  • Set 5 Cards are available in Treasure Battles, and for Level Up Cards.
  • Enough cards to play all new file types with only set 5 cards! Help each other out with Shrine Knights, exploit your troops with Magic Doll Command Units, control the field with Ice magic and live forever with the Undead!
  • New Status abilities let you break the rules, with skill effects that were not possible in earlier sets!
  • Bestow Traits on your allies, gain extra Skills when Counters are triggered, and enjoy immunity to Grimores and Soul Skills!
  • Classic play styles get new options, with more ways to change Battletime, get bonuses for Grimoires used, and more options for Solar Kingdom, Mermaids and Crest.
  • Art by Rei (Code Geass Manga), Masaki Hirooka (Culdcept Saga, Sonic and the Secret Rings), Kazuno Yuikawa (Aquarian Age, Ragnarok Online), and many more!

IE7 is experiencing oddities with the card list. Coupled with the fact that the sub-menus are still non-functional. To see the list for IE 7 users, click here. We're working on a solution. Progress is coming... slowly! But it should be resolved soon.

Everyone welcome DWildstar to the exclusive club known as the Alteil GMs. He's mostly a Refess player, so use that to your advantage. So we now have seven GMs kickin' around in the arenas.

Emperor Gestahl: We stand on the brink of a major breakthrough! In the days to come, we'll witness a total revival of magic! It is our destiny, and ours alone, to take this mystic force and claim what is rightfully ours! With our new-found power, nothing can stand in our way! 

Magic in the form of every card ever! Tis quite a power indeed. Be prepared fellow Iczers.

Community STARTER Tournament
Written by Logress   
Friday, 28 August 2009 15:05

This Saturday afternoon, the community organizers are putting to gather a STARTER tournament.  That means everyone with a Starter can play. (note... if you don't have a starter, you may be playing the wrong game...)

GM's are putting up prizes, and I highly recommend you all give this a chance. How many times have you said you'd be able to take out so-and-so if they didn't have so many expensive cards?  Well, now is your chance to prove it.  Also, if you happen to be a beginner, going to the Training Arena and watching some of these high-levelers battle it out with Starters is invaluable.  It's like watching someone thread a needle with a Buick, and learning from them will make you clean up in Regus and Crest.

To learn all about the Starter tournament and sign up, check out the FORUM THREAD HERE.

So... some of you may have noticed your RP RESET... yeah, probably should have given you a WARNING. Too little sleep.  So the way it works is that RP is Reset with every new set.  Then, last set's RP ranking list is IMMORTALIZED, carved into the chest plate of Dullen's armor, where it will last forever (at least until he next blows himself up)... or actually, on the rankings page.  I'll post a link as soon as the guys have it formatted all pretty for ya.

Note, your 'best RP ever' score is maintained, so if one set or another specifically worked with your play style, you can make sure no one every forgets it.

ALSO, Set five should be EVERYWHERE now, including treasure battles,  Point Card Redeemer, and LEVEL UP CARDS.  So, no holding back!

Set 5 is up in the shop and Lotto!  It's probably not up in the level up cards yet, I'll do that as soon as I get to the office.

I'm not a Thief, I'm a Treasure Hunter....

Treasure Hunter indeed Mr. Locke Cole. And it's treasure he's found. All new Wallpapers are available for the picking. We've ran all the way through Set 4 and picked the best art to adorn your computer desktop or laptop with.

Gau: Gau's treasure...shiny, shiny! Shiny, shiny, shiny!!!
Sabin: ...Can anything be THAT shiny?

Yes it can Sabin, yes it can.

Okay, so people want a preview. Also, people have been asking why it doesn't say on the main page that set 5 cards will be immediately available for level ups. That's because I gotta change the level up scripts one level at a time to make that happen... so yeah, give me half a day or so.


Mermaid Princess Emana
She's your basic level 3, 30 HP support unit. Her start skill, as many have guessed from the Japanese game, is to grant all friendly [subtype: mermaid] units immunity to the Attack action, except herself. That means you have to keep her in the back, because if she's in range of something and everything else you have is a mermaid, that something will _always_ hit her. There is another Mermaid in this set that grants an AT bonus to all units on both sides of the field every turn. This works well Emana, since she can assure that only your side will get to actually use that bonus. It also works well with Balzelda, because that replenishable AT bonus means she can use her special ability every turn... maybe on that one unit with enough range to hit your Emana.

Priestess of Madness
This little level two Lawtia unit will be the cornerstone of a lot of future games. She's got a huge 40 HP for a level 2 support unit, and a FREE action skill to move a random [subtype: undead] unit from the Cemetery back to your Card File. Imagine that with Skeleton Warrior. Now, imagine that set 5 has two new units with Skeleton Warrior's self-reviving close skill, a level 3 front line fighter and a level 7 crusher. Yeah, we thought you'd say that.

Boomerang Fighter
So Slash is okay for softening up the front line, but you know what Lancer does to help you take out the enemy's support units? Just about nothing. That's because everyone staggers their formation so hitting two units with a Lancer is hard enough, forget about three. Gowen has the answer with a little application of the boomerang. This Ranking up level 2 has 30 damage base, and his special attack hits one random unit from the enemy's front row, one from the enemy's middle row, and one from the enemy's back row! That sounds to me like a Fenrir-Sucubus-Eskatia or a Guardian (ouch)-Arius-Magic Musician or a Fencer-Scythe Soldier-Song Sorc or maybe a Combat Monk-Blitz Soldier-Salamander.

Holy Realm Knight / Sergis
Okay, we all know about the Shrine Knight fun that's coming. But my favorite card from the new Refess set is Sergis, another knight who worships Refess directly like Orphen. (That means he's not Solar Kingdom) He's only got 40 HP, but he's also got a 40 AT and 3 AGI. His special ability randomly hits any enemy he could normally one-shot (meaning it's got less remaining HP than his AT), but instead of just killing it, he reduces the target to MAX HP = 0. I'm sorry, was that your Dagon? The best part is that Lycanthropes will try to revive, burn the 1 SP, and heal up to 0 HP, immediately dying again. (note, close skill only activates when you are reduced from a positive number down to 0 HP. When you're "healed" up to 0 HP it doesn't trigger the close skill a second time).

Okay, I just realized that while my pick for Gowen is an extremely efficient fighter, it's not as dramatic or as exciting as the other three. So how about this? There's a Gowen unit with a new ability to add a damage bonus whenever any unit uses under the control of her Iczer uses the Attack option... for the rest of the game all of your units will get the bonus... and it's cumulative!
