Arakis' Quest Reminder
Written by Edgar Figaro   
Friday, 12 February 2010 15:27

This is a reminder that the submission period for the current Arakis' Quest ends this Monday, the 15th, at noon EST. Please be sure to submit your entries to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by that time. Also, I need to notify everyone of something regarding the errata that went into effect today. If you entered this Quest prior to 2/12 and used any cards that were affected by the errata, you may resubmit, but be sure to do so before the deadline. There will be no extension. Any errata-affected entries which are not resubmitted by the deadline will be retested, if it's deemed necessary, using the post-errata version of the Alteil card set.

The Ninja that Erratas in the Night

So, at maintenance, the FILE menu resets and reloads the data.  Meaning, I have to do the errata before then (6 AM EST) for it to show up tomorrow morning... Yeah, so it's only 2:40 AM EST but I'm exhausted and I've had a crazy day. So, errata's happening now. It will instantly take effect in the actual game, but the card File won't register the changes until tomorrow.  The Card List on the web site should be fine (except for Sumer being a 5*... I guess she'll just have to be a surprise).


-Why did you sever the Fencer Sea Serpent combo completely? Why not just make it less efficient? In testing, after decreasing the efficiency of the combo, we found it was better just to replace Fencer in the deck with something else.  And the "Still combos but less efficiently" skills were unnecessarily complicated, so why include unnecessarily complicated skills just to preserve a combo no one will use anyway?  Now Fencer can go play with Wizard Kingdom, and Sea Serpent can go play with Frog. Everyone  (with AGI 3 or lower) goes home happy.

The Valentine's Day seasonal art is up! Four cards, one from each sphere, have been switched to alternate, Valentine's Day themed artwork.  You don't have to do anything special, just log in as normal and check your Card File to see the new art.

Also, we've added CHOCOLATES to the Avatar shop during the seasonal art event!

Community Tournament Results

Last weekend marked one of our first "meta" tournaments, where players were encouraged to bring their absolute best Files for a face off. For some reason that didn't happen, and there was instead a variety of balanced ready-for anything types an old skool big Refess and a few experimental Files. I'm not sure if that is a failure or success exactly, but the tournament was a lot of fun so it can't be a bad thing.  Special thanks to Noobwiz who ran a tight ship for his time and patience!

So it's that time of year again. When young mens fancy turns to thoughts of ogres and serpents and unrealistically clothed female warriors. That's right Valentines day! In celebration of this most sacred of Hallmark holidays we here at Alteil thought it would be fun to imagine what the valentines that the people/creatures of Lavato give each other look like. As such we are having a contest! You, our faithful and talented Iczers shall make Alteil Valentines. They could be Iczer to iczer, Iczer to normal human, Iczer to Lavato Citzen, etc. Whatever you want. Details after the break:
