The alliance merger I mentioned is with an alliance called the Lone Rangers. They are willing to join Wolf!erine (rather than the other way around). They currently have 20 members but their leader believes less than that would come over. We may not even need to lose truthfairy.

They had some members leave for a top-200 alliance, but prior to that they ranked around 600 for AvA and 800-1000 for other events. They sound very similar to us. They have no defense leader (sorry, Sarah!).

Their leader, Gravel, and I chatted for a while this morning - screenshots are in Line - and he later mentioned that his officers were receptive.

We need to have our core 4 in line with any plan here. I'm not looking to upset anyone, but especially not our crew.

Between A2 and Scru, one of you needs to be leader, and I'm not sure who has what in their decks these days.

Someone pick, or I'll give it to Sela.

NOT IT! :lol:

I have 3 10/100 SSA Caps (sk 8/3/3), an SOL Cap (sk 2) and Ferrous IM (sk 3); defensively anyway. I'm working on a second SOL Cap to replace the Ferrous IM.
On offense, I have the SSA Caps and 2 Winter Soldiers (sk 3).

Aaron has 14 levels on me. That's an additional 42 points somewhere, half of which are in his def. I think his energy is lower than mine, which would place his atk points much higher than mine, maybe pushing 500. I'm at 434 atk.

My defense is close to his; Aaron is at 221, and I'm at 200 even, I think.


I'd like to get my offense at about 450-460, so I have 3 solid hits at full charge. I can shift to boosting Def, but that's a slow process. I've no problem taking the lead, and the subsequent beatings should they break through Sarah's cap wall.

(fwiw, I keep messaging Kam on Line about giving what's left of his deck to me. He has a lot of speed cards, both defensive and offensive. I'm not sure he'll go for it, but he doesn't appear to be active on the account any longer.)

My atk is 66472 (3 kingpins, magneto & red skull, I'm 15 decrees away from all 5 of them being level 100.) I have 474 atk points and can get off 3 attacks per load.

My def is 63518 (3 kingpins, 2 malekiths.) Def points are 221. I can fend off average attacks but fall to anything strong.

I've got almost 300pp saved up. I thought about buying a Loki to give my def a boost but I'm holding out until I can get a card with a center skill that fits my deck, offense or defense. Not having one of those center trait cards is putting me at a disadvantage but unless a rich uncle dies and leaves me a child killer thanos I'm going to have to keep waiting for the right card to come along.

I'd be happy to take over if yk,fk steps down, provided he still plans on being around to guide me.

Right, actual attack points. I didn't mention those.

My attack deck is 63807 with a 90% proc Fury Blast, though the game suggests I use a 65339 deck with a 60% proc Super Soldiers. I guess I could swap one Winter Soldier for TBTI Wolvie and have the chance of either special combo. That would increase the 63807 base attack, but lessen the effect of the tactic boost.

My def deck is 62663 with a 80% Marvel Hero Team boost, while the game suggests I use a 64067 def deck with no special combo.

Yeah, I disregard the suggested deck. WoH thinks I should swap out a Kingpin for the free Magneto but the villain boost from Kingpin is way stronger than that Magneto's team boost. I just get the wild villain boost on offense 90%/3% and evil alliance on defense 85%/3%, nothing special but it helps a little. I'd like to work a Dr Doom in for Kingpin on atk to get the masterminds boost 85%/6% but they've yet to make a UR Doom that does anything but boost tactics.

I've seen a Doom/Magneto combo that looks really cool (when it isn't being used against you), but I don't know the stats on it.

I guess I should hit up the wiki and shop for a strong and high-frequency combo, then get cards to match. What I wouldn't spend to get at least one of those UL Cap cards...

Electromagnetic is the doom\magneto combo but masterminds is an even more powerful one that you get if you include red skull with that pair.

Those ul cards are still stupid expensive. We need a ton more to hit the market to bring the price down.

Early thoughts about the new people?

I like the core 3 for certain. The others seem ok from what little I've seen so far. My only disappointment is that I thought we would be filling out the roster and it looks like we'll be about 4 or 5 short.

So far, I like their enthusiasm. More active players will certainly help, but I think it's a good start. Didn't the one guy said there should be another 4 or so members joining? Maybe they aren't as active or maybe they are just having hesitancy about coming over to our side or have other invites. Thanks again for all your work on this, Harv. I wish you still had a leader position of some sort.

I'll admit that it's weird not having a leader position...

Yeah, I'm not sure what the deal is with the ones who haven't come over - I don't want to push it, as they may be fringe anyway, but they are better options than empty roster spots for now. It does sound like some were less enthusiastic about this move. It's hard foregoing an existing identity and embracing a new one, so I understand that. I was really looking forward to a full roster though!

It definitely feels weird not having you as the leader, yk,fk.

I like them, so far. No one seems annoying or anything.

How did you find them in the first place? I imagine pulling off a merger like this required quite a bit of work.

Some credit should go to theClueHunter for this.

As you know I was shopping for a merger for a while, even had talks with a few leaders. Right around Christmas Eve I chatted with Blynk from the wiki who had posted a recruitment message- he's a long-time contributor there... it would have been a great fit and valuable resource but the numbers weren't going to work out - too many people for the spots.

tCH noticed that start of that exchange, though, and sent me a Line message about another alliance that was looking for members, but only had about 5 actives. He thought we might be able to bring all of them on. It took me a few days but I went there. Gravel had also just posted on that recruitment thread inquiring as well. I reached out to that alliance's leader and they said they wanted to build their own thing - a merger with us dominant was not going to work for them - but then Gravel reached out to me and we got to talking. Their alliance had 20 or so people in it so at first I was worried about the numbers game as well as officer spots. But Gravel and I both immediately acceded our officer spots and when things got rolling it became clear that quite a few less than the 20 would be coming here.

If we don't get at least a couple more from there I'll be mildly disappointed at giving up 2 officer spots, but it's clear that this is a good boost for the alliance's health short and long-term.

Hw did you decide which membership requests to accept? We've got 2 pending. One is that low level, no friend guy who you rallied but has never responded. He seems like an easy axe. The other is level 59 (iirc) and has 30/30 friends. That's promising, but I don't know how careful I need to be. His rally wall seems clean of any red flags. Only has ssr-level cards on his wish list. Our name does say that we're recruiting.

Instinct more than anything. If we need to reserve spaces for any reason and we have few spots, I get choosier. But when we need bodies, I take more chances. Line, active... in - unless I get a bad vibe.

When/if we get the auction room up and running this would make a convenient place to keep our notes regarding who gave which cards to be sold and whatnot. A shared google doc would work just as well, but I think we definitely need some place to keep track of the cards where several of us can read or add to the data.

My thought was just to keep us organized from auction to auction. Do you think there's a benefit to keeping a long-term history?

I like the idea, but in an auction to auction scenario, it will entirely depend on our physical location during the auction period.
If we are in front of our computers, this could work. With the fast pace of the auctions, a separate chat for auction logs could be better. Again, this will likely be a case by case basis, and a bit of trial and error.

Regarding organization, I was thinking more along the lines of using it to keep track of who gives what to be auctioned.
Furthering Harv's idea, maybe we have a weekly or monthly winner who gets an ssr card or every maybe 10pp spent gets you an entry into a monthly raffle. Or, to entice people to use us to sell their cards, they get a raffle entry for every 10pp their cards generate in sales.

I'm not personally fond of raffles. With Harv's idea, I'd be more inclined to do a B2G1 type thing. Every Nth sale, they get one free of charge...

Orginization: Is it too much to ask them to send cards for sale prior to auction? I'm only in one auction room, but generally the buyer sends a pic of the card(s) and an asking starting bid.

I don't like or do raffles, either. I guess what I was talking about is really more of a drawing.

I think its imperative to have the cards ahead of time. I'd like to be as efficient as possible, and part of that means being able to quickly get the cards to the winners and the pp to the sellers.
