Hey Everyone,

Here is the new Deck Builder Interface.
Too many changes to list them all yet. I'd rather have your feedback first and then make a proper update on the whole Hex DB thread ^^

Here is just a picture of what its look like now:

I will try to add an option (in addition to the current "share deck") to save your deck with a name and a small description, and a page to list them (and rate them afterward).

What to say, great job. Now find a few good bloggers willing to move their content to your website (grissnap from http://thedailyhexagame.wordpress.com/ could be one), and you have THE Hex fan-site out there :o

Thanks to both of you for your kind words ^^
It really helps to re-motivate myself when i'm stuck with a bug for serveral hours :)

BTW: I'm planning to make an embedded version of decks, so anyone will be able to add a deck widget (like in the image preview) in its own website/blog ;)

I've been a great fan of your work from the start, and you just keep on improving the site! I really hope that CZE somehow will acknowledge what you're doing.

You need to remove "created" cards from the deck builder entirely. You can't filter them and they have no realistic place there.

Thanks again everyone (i know i repeat myself, but i need to ^^)

As suggested, token (grey rarity cards) had nothing to do in deck building, so they've been removed.

Also, when you follow a deck link (like the one below). You'll see only cards from the deck at first.
You have to click "Show All Cards", to have access to the complete list

Hats off Kemical,

Goes without saying that we appreciate your work, but I'll infer it regardless >.<

one of the recent updates from CZE gave a nod to Kemicals work.

I noticed that Overcharge wasn't available for Deckbuilding. Also, Spectral Lotus Garden was available for deckbuilding which can not be put in a deck.

Just added the "Decks" section to list the Decks you saved and public decks.
I've completed the feature this morning and didn't add much time to test it, would you do it for me? ^^

On each saved deck there is a comments page so you can share your thoughts about it, enjoy! :)

Omen of Oblivion has wrong picture in "Display Cards Pictures" mode (it has Pact of Pain's).

Thanks Verdant, as soon as the deck features are validated, i will correct the reported mistakes and go back to card collecting (missed some of them recently, but shouldn't take too long to update the database ^^)

Thanks for the shout out! I'd definitely be willing to contribute content.

Hi Grissnap!

Thanks for answering here ^^
I could make a script to scrap your blog content on a regulary basis, so you don't have to do anything (except not changing your html tags so my script keep finding contents at the same place ^^). Each post would be displayed on a "News" page with your credit and a link to your website ;)

I make a public answer cause i could do this for other bloggers too :)

I like your expertise, would be great if you could make some deck with a description like in your blog.
Moreover that could lead both way => I will soon make a deck widget that you can include in your blog post ^^

Great! I'll give deck building a try for my next one ;)

Edit: Also, the scraping sounds great. I'll make sure not to change my url.

I'll also try to use your site for card descriptions from now on.

Thanks ^^

Like i was saying before, i'm sorry having missed some cards the past days, but since i have no brain left after the last features implementation, i will focus on data collection for the next few days :)

I like when I'm the matchmaker! :cool: I'd like to start writing about Hex too, sooner or later. If the content is good enough, I'll send it to you Kemical ;)

Looking great, thanks for this! I'd love to see a goldfish tool (shuffle and give you a starting hand with a mulligan and draw button to see how the first few turns will go for your deck) ... be a nice way to pass the time until September.

@FranzVonG: I'm waiting for your article! ^^

@wildcard: Could come soon, it won't be hard to do, i've also think of some challenge games while waiting for alpha access:
I give you a page with 6 or 7 boosters (same for all participants) and everyone try to make the best "sealed deck" and rating each others ^^

Useless but seems fun to me :p

Oh great! A deck that wasn't made by me!

Was starting to think this feature was broken ;)
