Joining games

Whats going on with some people? I've joined quite a few games which someone is hosting, but they fail to start the game. Or, I'll create a game which someone joins, then they never play a turn.

Its sometimes hard to find a match..

Here's two news from Ascension Fans

https://www.facebook.com/AscensionFans

There is an interview with Gary Games CEO, Justin Gary there, at the top of the page.

So the SoS release date is within 2 weeks, which means it will be released before the 12th of May (hopefully).
The second thing is, they "might" be planning the third expansion for the game on iOS as well (is wouldn't be THAT surprising, of course).

Here's the quote:

"*AF*: So the next big release for Ascension on iOS is the Storm of Souls expansion. When can we expect it?
*JG*: Within the next two weeks.

*AF*: This may be jumping the gun, but what about Immortal Heroes on iOS?
*JG*: [laughter] No comment. [more laughter]"

I just played one great game with Ashraam and have come to the conclusion that the best card in the game is definitely Black Hole.

I've paired Black Hole as the first card pick against Arbiter of the Precipice and Snapdragon and it's beaten both of them even against the odds.

That game against Ashraam, he had an Arbiter and lost even after stealing my Link Device (7 honor construct)

Again, I played someone where he had first pick with 5 runes and chose Snapdragon against my Black Hole. He lost even though he played a pretty clean game (kitkeat I think).

The additional +1 power puts it over the top.

Currently Playing: Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, Summoner Wars

Game Center: Camzeee

So will there be a resolution boost for the new iPad?

Ok, I just bought this game and have little experience with card games...I use to play like pokemon like 12 Years ago and have been play Shadow era here...in that game I play lance SS a thief/rouge who's considered prettyy bad(like barely usable) yet I got enough pointers to make it work...

Well I'm done with that, in this game I want to play the best charters or cards.. But I'm not even sure how this works as its a complete diff game, do people have different decks or is like the same cards available to everyone...

If u don't feel like typing out awhole page of crape atleast give me a view words of advice before linking me to another page...thanks

Im a tcg gamer such as mtg (no longer playing), shadowera, assassin creed etc. ascension is different which is more like draft game (deck building game). You build your deck along the game (not preparing the deck before the game like shadowera nor mtg). The cards for you to build are open to you and your opponents to take. So you create your strategy based on what cards available on the table.

Both of you and your opponents start with 10cards which are the same. As mentioned, all other cards are available on the table.. Giving the same chance (and luck) for you n your opp to get the best cards available

There is in-game tutorial that helps you understand the mechanic. It is not as complicated as nightfall. I and most of us here enjoy the game. This is the game that my wife really hates since i play it everyday. The most played game compared to other games that i have

Thanks, sounds like a nice change of pace..except that for this type of game I'll probly stand no chance since things are all decided in game....atleast with shadow era I could find some building guides to play around with and start play competively within 5 matches..

I don't guess I've played anything like this before..guess I'd better start learning..

You two are two of the best I have come across so far. This game now needs a spectator mode....

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

Or actually much more of a chance to win, I think. Strategy helps, especially if you can setup sone of these legendary combos, but just sticking true to any of the game's winning tactics (collecting constructs, hording swords, or maybe simply maximizing your mana), you'll be up to competitive speed in no time even if you don't know all of the game's cards that well.
