    Post Dev Update: Custom Game Options



    It's been another great week in Balor, and it's time for a development update! Because of the recent discussion about Mulligans, we decided to go ahead and try it out!!

    Starting in the next release, v3.16, custom games will have a variety of new options to toggle.

    Creator Goes First - Technically this option is already available by having the password "creator". But this made most passwords kind of easy to guess!
    Game Timer - You can now have the option to specify the total time that each player has, in a "chess clock" style of timer. If their time is up, they lose the match!
    50 Card Minimum - We're considering moving to 50 card minimum, so this let's people try it out in their custom games.
    Mulligans - We're going to try Mulligans! On each player's first turn before they sacrifice, they can choose to shuffle their hand into their deck and draw new cards up to one less than they previously had.

    Custom game options like these enable us to try out new features before they make it into the whole game and are a standard part of the games rules. We're looking for players to try out these new features in custom games and tournaments and give feedback on how it works out.

    Have some other great ideas for game options? Be sure to let us know!

    v3.16 is scheduled for release around the middle of October.

    Like all of these options except for 50 card minimums, don't get why increasing that is necessary. Custom timers could make for some crazy tournament rules if you make a tourney where each turn has super low time limit (assuming there are really low times as an option). Getting to test out mulligans is nice too.

    Great but I still think that mulligan will make going first a greater advantage.

    It's unrated and it doesn't has to be used, having it is a great feature

    Thanks Wulven! We needed all these. Can't wait to use these features!

    Since its in custom games, it will be a good experiment to see what's a popular and effective option, if not all of them .
    Be interesting to see.

    But the fun part is going to be , how many times will it take to start games, I mean how many restarts had to happen because the pw was simply typed wrong.

    Great news.

    I'd like to hear more about why 50 card decks might be coming.

    OK cool but now imagine a tournament, you can choose who goes first on first 2 games and the match is tied. Who goes first in third game will be key and much more important than ever. Remember that tournament matches are played in unrated.

    Don't get me wrong, these are good news but I think that most se players are tcg old players and have tried mulligan before so we all know what is good and bad about it even without having tried it here. Hearthstone uses a coin to avoid first turn advantage, SE should implement something similar. That's just my 2 cents.

    Keep the good work and thx for listening your player base.
