    In-Game Challenges

    Lately I have felt that SE has...erhm...gone stale. We can agree its because of a lack of an expansion but in the meantime I propose a Challenge system. Quite Simply, every week Wulven may code a certain challenge that when done a certain number of times awards extra gold or if they use some SC format will award SC. While I have over 70 ideas for challenges (to be precise, I have 30 General Challenges, 20 Hero Specific Challenges, 20 Class Specific Challenges, and 10 Humiliation Class Challenges), the goal of challenges is to provide replayability for SE and provide an incentive for performing something harder than normal while we would wait for an expansion that...well I think we all are expecting it sometime in 2020.

    These were my ideas for the Humiliation Class Challenges. I am including a description of the challenges, but not the number of times it ought to be performed.
    -Power Shortage: Win a game without using Shadow Energy
    -Thorns: While at 33% or less health and while your opponent has 66% or more health, win a game.
    -Suicidal Tendancies- Finish a using a Supernova as the finishing blow (you must have 1 health remaining).
    -Speed Boost- Win a game in less than 7 turns
    -Death Incarnate: Kill all of your opponents allies before making the final blow
    -What Tools!!: Win a game without Items, Armor, or Weapons
    -The Force is Not Strong...- Win a game without using Abilities
    -Everybody Needs Friends?: Win a game without using Allies
    -Interception!!!: Kill an opponent with a weapon obtained from your opponents' Dimension Ripper or Transference
    -It's OP: Win a game where the final blow is caused by a Fire Snake.

    Again it is just an idea I had and I think if implemented will definitely encourage people to continue playing it. If enough people support it I will list the Hero Specific Challenges or the Class Specific Challenges, depending on what you would like.

    My analysis:

    -Power Shortage: Mages will own.

    -Thorns: While at 33% or less health and while your opponent has 66% or more health, win a game. <- this is fun.

    -Suicidal Tendancies- Finish a using a Supernova as the finishing blow (you must have 1 health remaining). <- how to get yourself to 1 hp -_- so evil.

    -Speed Boost- Win a game in less than 7 turns <- mages again.

    -Death Incarnate: Kill all of your opponents allies before making the final blow <- lance/victor/ms game.

    -What Tools!!: Win a game without Items, Armor, or Weapons <- total mage game, again.

    -The Force is Not Strong...- Win a game without using Abilities <- I have no idea -_- elementalis and ms should own

    -Everybody Needs Friends?: Win a game without using Allies <- MILLSTALKER WARRSS

    -Interception!!!: Kill an opponent with a weapon obtained from your opponents' Dimension Ripper or Transference <-MAD TRIP.

    -It's OP: Win a game where the final blow is caused by a Fire Snake. <- too many draws, too little time. Priests will stack 4x icestorm.

    as you can see, there's an "achievement" for every hero. Well, not exactly, but i'm buying the concept. Designing this kind of things for different heroes and play styles sounds fun. Would be interested to see, specially with SC prizes :-)

    btw, only achievable via QM, right?

    Correct on the QM. I am really against grinding/boosting.

    Encouraging people to play to one of the various "challenges" you mention seems like it would remove strategic diversity from the game, at least in the long run when the game has a pretty decent set of cards to choose from. I don't think it's worth the improved replayability if it inundates the QM queue with gimmick decks optimized for gold/SC farming.

    Just my two cents.

    If you complete a challenge it cannot be redone until wulven changes the challenges. So you cant repeat the challenges over and over again to grind.

    Basically you complete the challenge, it's locked for a week. Wulven puts a different set of challenges, unlocks it, the cycle continues.

    Love them. Every game needs its own in-game players achievements/trophies.

    Well I'm not trying to make achievements. Its a challenge system that anyone could do if they tried hard enough, is randomly generated for the week, and designed to encourage an increase in replayability. I respect that your guild has an achievement system in it. But this is not a recruitment thread.

    I think all of these are good ideas.
