In Topic: Embarking on the big one.

With my card game and my programmer friend, I'm just like "Look, there might not even be a market for phone apps in the 2 years it's going to take me to learn to program and sprite this fucking thing. Just take this completed, tested design and make it and give me 25%"

Does that sound so unreasonable?

Yes, it does sound unreasonable. Your use of the word "just" when talking about what you want him to do is unreasonable. You'll lose a friend with this attitude.

In Topic: Ways of forcing players to play together without risk of getting griefed?

14 July 2012 - 09:49 AM

I've played a lot of HON, which has a solution of sorts - if you're good enough at the game, your automatic rating will increase, and the game will give you team mates who also have high ratings, none of which can be griefers, or their rating would be lower.

If you're new to the game however, you will start off with a low rating and be grouped up with griefers, so... it's a double edged sword.

In Topic: How to create a balanced card game?

Check out Spectromancer, it is a very well balanced card game. I'm pretty sure it was balanced by letting AI fight AI.

In Topic: Stacked spaceships and shields

09 June 2012 - 10:13 AM

Why don't you just introduce an artillery weapon to the game, which instead of a fixed amount of damage gives a small amount of damage per unit in the stack? This weapon would be weak against small stacks, strong against large stacks, and the only thing that can take out very large stacks of shielded ships.
