    Lightbulb Shadow Era FACTS while you're waiting!

    Shadow Era is a beautifully technical game based primarily on skill and less on random chance. The game mechanics are quite technical and I believe new players have a steep learning curve in mastering the Shadow Era rule dynamics.

    When you are connecting to a game we currently have a ‘Connecting to game’ text box which appears until a suitable combatant is available. I’d like to propose that ‘Shadow Era’ facts are displayed at this point of time. It makes time pass faster when you're reading a fact in comparison to staring at a box which points out that you are waiting.
    The ‘Connecting to Game’ would display at the top of the screen and a text box would display a ‘Fun Fact’ from a pool of facts.

    These facts would range from:

    Explaining in game Shadow Era card affects
    Example: An ally or hero with Stealth can’t be targeted for attack by a hero or ally.
    Example: Stealth, Durability, Damage types


    Explaining game mechanics:
    Example: Resolving order or cards. (I.e. decoy saves the first ally on the left and not the others)

    A taste of Shadow Era LORE
    Example: Short snippets not saga’s

    Explaining the Shadow Era Game features:
    Example: Meltdown matches – what the game is and the rewards that can be won


    What are people’s thoughts on this?
    I hope understanding the game better will increase players enjoyment. (Knowing the prizes which can be won and understanding why certain things happen and not incorrectly thinking its a bug)
    Do you have any suggestions of possible ‘Fun Facts’ that would be informing or entertaining?

    I think I have too dark sense of humor.

    My fun fact:

    Did you know that Priest of the Light used to have more appropriate artwork for his ability.

    +1 this idea is good and easy to implement. If we make a list of things it could say it would make it even easier for it to be added. The message could change after a certain time (10 secs for example) in case there is a long wait
