Intro Quest has been Upgraded!
Written by Edgar Figaro   
Tuesday, 02 March 2010 22:57

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.

Rankings! Indeed again Rankings never fails. We have achievements launch, the replay theater launch, premium membership launch, and through it all Rankings is here on this sunny Monday* (your results may vary based on location).

Nice job with the battling and winning and sometimes losing amidst all of our new goodies in Alteil. Kudos* to you.

As always, anyone who has fought in the arena at least once this week will receive at least 10 gran. Listed below are your top 5 ranked Iczers, top 3 guilds, and guilds that have become official.

*On a personal note, yours truly, when he was younger, thought when people said kudos that they meant the delicious chocolate snack. Kudos to you? I want some!

Arakis' Long Range Quest Results
Written by Edgar Figaro   
Friday, 26 February 2010 19:36

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.

Instant Replay Feature
Written by Logress   
Wednesday, 24 February 2010 19:29

Okay, this isn't the most mind blowing new thing ever, but somehow this feature got past me in the chaos of the morning, and since many of our users are non-paying users, I thought this might interest someone (maybe). 

SAVING replays is a premium feature, but PLAYING back an Instant Replay is not. So, only Members or Trial Members get the Save button at the end of their battles, but everyone gets the Replay button. That means you can Replay a battle as many times as you want until you return to the Arena.  So what's the point of that? First of all, if you missed a chance to screen cap a guy who was being cheap or cheating, it's no problem. If you're learning, you can use it to review what the enemy did. Most importantly, though, is that everyone can record a duel and post it to you-tube using their favorite video capture program, but how do you know in advance if a duel was worth the trouble to capture?  Now if you have an awesome duel you can just Replay and record.


Premium Cashier
Written by lupos   
Wednesday, 24 February 2010 18:15

Just a quick FYI, the cashier is now accesable to users all again and premium purchases should be working. All you have to do to get premium features is buy at least 1100 gran. That's it. No extra cost. No extra work to do. If you spend as little as 10$ a month on Alteil anyway then you'll have premium features for ever. If you purchase more you get more and later purchases will just add to your total (extend your expiration dates). So that means you big spenders will basically be "premium 4 life". ;)

 As always this is a new system and while we have tested the heck out of it, issues do crop up. If you have any issues with the cashier please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and let us know. Operators (me) are standing by!
