After a surprisingly difficult job watching and judging, we've got our winners!

There were a lot of difficult choices, many of these battles showed off really smart planning and good decision making... but that doesn't make the battle Epic by itself. There needs be something extra, a weird card choice a key field wipe, or a big switchup.

And without further ado, our winner is:

Community Tournament Saturday the 6th

Your friend and mine Noobwiz is running another Community Tournament this weekend with no card restrictions. Despite the lack of restrictions, the last one was surprisingly low on pure meta decks, so this one, post errata, should be very interesting.  I recommend everyone give it a shot. All users who play at least once in the tournament, win or lose, get a Participation Prize.  You can check out all the details on the forum thread here. Note: you MUST sign up with Noobwiz ahead of time, so if you're interested don't wait, check out the thread!

Intro Quest has been Upgraded!

No new achievements, no new features, no snazzy interface to view them all. Nope. Then what may you ask has been upgraded? The back end! Your diligent coders (Lupos and Edgar) have found a way to smooth out some of the hiccups that have plagued the achievement system so far. So, theoretically, all of you who haven't gotten achievements when you were supposed to should now be able to get them now and all of you getting double and triple e-mails, that should stop too.

Arakis' Quest - The Ladies Only Quest 3/1/10 - 3/15/10

This one's been requested repeatedly, and it's finally time we got to it. The rules are simple. Every card you use in your entry must feature a lady. Well, okay so it's not quite so simple. Because of the ambiguity introduced by grimoires and certain cards like Great Spirits, after much consideration I've decided that only cards in the card list that contain the "Female Card" tag will be eligible.

Arakis' Long Range Quest Results

As it turns out, Alteil has plenty of strategies still available when all you have to work with are ranged units. While fragility is often an issue, there are plenty of long-range cards that pack a mean punch and can hang on long enough to get the job done.

Epic Win Contest

Epic Win Contest

OK, so now everyone has the Trial Membership for the Theater Tab, we better DO something fun with it before they start expiring. Here's the Epic Win contest (note... you don't actually have to win the game to win the contest), submit a URL from the Theater Tab with a REPLAY of a crazy entertaining battle. Estoma with 10,000 AT? Four Dragon Emperors on the field? Winning with Living Dead? Then, POST the replay of the battle IN THIS THREAD with a short description.

We'll have to make the deadline Tuesday night so we can get this judged before Trials start expiring on Wednesday afternoon.

PRIZES: 1st Place 20 Point Cards and +3 Theater Tab Slots.
2-5th Place 10 Point Cards and +2 Theater Tab Slot.
All participants get 5 Point Cards.

SPECIAL: Since it is a lot harder to come up with an entertaining battle if you're a beginner, if you pull off a win (or at least a good comeback run) with your mod starter against a high leveler's File (or at least a File with a lot of rares in it, that counts as well. If the match has one exceptional move or one specific moment you gave the enemy OS syndrome, you might want to include the key turn # in the description.

ALSO: We know that there seems to be a consistent issue with playback, meaning that for some users it always works, for some it never works, and for others it works every time for a day, then never for the next day. We're working on it. Anyway, as long as you save the Replay and send the URL to us, even if you can't see it, we can and it will count for the contest.

ADDITIONALLY: The bonus Theater Tab slots are permanent additions to your profile. If you ever become a Premium user for any reason, you will have your bonus slots.
