In this devblog, [Nuuh] answers a few questions about Wild Realms and talk about the Eternal format update!  

Hi everyone,

We're back with news after the release of Wild Realms. I hope you're enjoying playing with it as much as we did creating it. As always, I'll try to keep this short.

First, the Comprehensive Rules have been updated and can be found here: [link]

 

I'd also like to take this opportunity to answer a few questions on the rules that have been posted in the forums.

One of the first subjects that have raised questions is Missiz Burnzz's Flame Return.

Personal spell and Flame Return:

A personal spell (   ) targets the caster's cell. CThis is why, if a Krosmaster casts a personal spell (  and has the "Will-o'-the-Wisp" marker, the effect of Flame Return is triggered and the Krosmaster suffers 2 damage.


 

Missiz Burnzz and Djaul:

The other interaction that is raising questions is between the "Flame Return" power and Djaul's "Black Humor" attack.

In fact, this raises a more general question about how "Flame Return" operates, which often seems poorly understood. In Krosmaster, triggered effects that do not belong to spells in the process of being resolved are put on hold until step 8 (after the spell resolution) unless they change spell resolution. We have added Point 7.2.1.c to the CRs in order to clarify how this works.


 

Dragon Pig:

Dragon Pig's effect is an effect that has a conditional trigger that requires one to calculate how many dice are thrown during the current roll. It can only take place after applying the effects that make it possible to calculate the total number of dice. That's why, for example, we apply the effect of the Armor power before verifying whether Piggy-Business is triggered or not.
 

Similarly, an "Armor-Piercing" attack on Dragon Pig with the "Armor" power is resolved as follows:
Dragon Pig was supposed to throw only one die because of Armor-Piercing, so his power wasn't triggered and he therefore throws only one die.

The resolution is the same if Dragon Pig is under the effect of the "Driving" power: We apply the "Driving" modifications, and then we verify the number of dice that Dragon Pig is supposed to throw to determine whether or not "Piggy-Business" is triggered.

We have added Point 4.18.10 to the CRs to clarify this area of the rules.

Up next: the update to the Eternal format.


 

ETERNAL FORMAT:

All the future products will be initially released in the 2-Star category, and then moved up or down categories if needed.

Here are the changes, followed by a brief explanation.

Eternal 1 Star:

  • Addition of BAD ABOUM
  • Addition of LOU
  • Addition of DARK VLAD – Karnated
  • Removal of RAUL BAK
 

Eternal 2 Star: 

  • Removal of DARK VLAD – Karnated
  • Removal of LOU
  • Removal of BAD ABOUM
  • Removal of PHAERYS – Devastated
  • Addition of RAUL BAK
  • Addition of QUENTIN FLUSH
  • Addition of the Wild Realms Expansion
 

Eternal 3 Star:

  • Addition of PHAERYS – Devastated
  • Removal of QUENTIN FLUSH
 

We wanted to shake up the Eternal 1 Star format a bit. To do so, we added Lou who, while she does boost her allies, tends to injure them.

We think that DARK VLAD – Karnated receives too much competition from the level-2 version to be played in the 2-Star category on a regular basis.

We are moving him down to the 1-Star category in order to give players in this format a new direction in which to build.

Finally, we are testing swapping places between BAD ABOUM and RAUL BAK in the role of AP controller. Since BAD ABOUM is a little less technical to play, we think that he will be less oppressive for the Eternal 1 Star metagame.

 We've decided to move PHAERYS – Devastated up to the 3-Star category. We had left him in place so that he could act as a safeguard in 2-Star format. With the addition of Wild Realms, we think that his presence is not as necessary, and he's therefore moving up to the 3-Star category.

Finally, QUENTIN seemed to us to be too constrained in Eternal 3 Star. The addition of Wild Realms in the 2-Star category combined with RAUL's moving up, seems to us to be a good time to give him his chance in the 2-Star category.


 

That's it for this week. Next week, we'll announce the update of the Season Format. Have fun playing, everyone!
