Hero Academy Catch-All

So, I see that all heroic teams are half off this weekend. Any recommendations?

I would get them all, but if you only choose one, get the Dwarves. They are my personal favorite.

Added my name to the list and sent out a few invites. Hit me up: SixteenBlue.

I'm enjoying my asynchronous Ascension play with you guys, and this was just featured in the main App store window, so I'm going to download this again and give it another try with those strategy links posted. If it digs it's teeth in, I'll add myself to the lists, etc.

The game's just fun. Once I figured out the mechanics, I had no problems. See you in game.

Bugger it, I'm in.

Thought there might be an offline mode to build up with, but looks like it's online or nothing.

Hit me up too: m0nk3boy (same as my Game Center for those that have me).

Any suggestions on who might be a good first race to invest in, you know, to kill the ads?

The best way to learn is make heavy use of the undo and help features.

I just started playing with Dwarves (by accident since I hit Random instead of Council when Sixteen challenged me) and I'm enjoying them so far.

Man, I wish this had an offline mode like Ascension. I want to play more! Why do all you American GWJers have to sleep?

It's kind of ridiculous that it doesn't, honestly.

Well, between your good self and TheCounselor it's well past midnight down here. To be continued... (unless I hear that 'bloop' noise to come and play 'just one more turn').

They need to hurry up with the Android version already!

Is there a plan for that? If I had this on my phone I would never get anything done.

Yeah, they've said they're working on it now but there's no ETA.

Between this and Ascenscion, I haven't gone near my 360 all week. I thank you all for the enablement (and the games we're playing)!

If I haven't hit you up for a game yet, feel free to initiate.

ShopTroll, I think I may just be ready to challenge you for the title of punching bag

You always remember your first... Thank you SixteenBlue!

'Skin of my teeth' mind you, check the bottom of the image. Speaking of which.

Just added my name to the Google Docs. Send me an invite if you would like.

Well now that I'm an iPad owner I don't need to wait for the Android version. I'm in as Liquidmantis. Befriend me, bitches!

I'm almost out of active games and am not quite sure who is still actively playing. Feel free to challenge me to a game, any and all challengers!

That entirely depends on how our current game goes. I've been known to blow a good lead *grumbles*

I know i'm still enjoying it, and have active games with TheCouncelor, Athros, SixteenBlue, 5000brians, johnvanjim, shoptroll and Aretz.

Looking forward to adding you to the mix

There's a new update with a tutorial and challenges.

Hmmmm. Downloading now.

Challenges look like fun, nice set of them for each team to train you for best practices in a team's special abilities. Also sounds like a new team is imminent, based on several blog posts over at Robot entertainment.

The challenges leave me with the inescapable conclusion that I shouldn't play as the Tribe. I can't finish even the first one.

Good game m0nk3yboy!

On another note: I am always up for matches from GWJ'ers! I can and will give hints and tips if you want, even during the game. I tend to play Dwarves over anything else, but I am fairly confidant with the other 3.

Some of these challenges are killing me.

In that case, I will gladly accept a surrender in our current game

Yeah, I have all of the Tribe ones left and one more for the Dark Elves. I finished the Council and Dwarfs.

I'll have to check out the update, I fell off the bandwagon because the iPad version isn't working well with me and I rather not have that sort of distraction on my iPhone. Hopefully that was fixed.

I had a breakthrough with the Tribe, and I have now finished all the challenges. A bit disappointing that there's not a ton of content there, but they were fun little puzzles.
