Ascension: Card game for iPhone/iPad/paper

Yep I do. Looks like I have a game invite from Fed, after adding him to gamecenter I had to go into the game itself and connect to the online server to see it.

Awesome! I have been playing a lot against the AI since I tried the game out two weeks ago. I was just thinking earlier today I really like the game but I want more.

I see there are four spots for players, but against the AI you can only play 1v1, does this expansion open that up or are additional players only available against other players?

My gamecenter id is LeapingGnome if anyone wants to play a game. I have never done ANY multiplayer on iOS before so not sure how it all works exactly.

You can play 4 player games against three AI players. Just click on the circle with a slash through it on the two empty spots.

I don't think it's a very good game with more than two players though.

Is there no notification sent when it is yor turn in a multiplayer game or am I missing something?

Here's a notification, unless you turned it off. You need to allow the app to push things to your iPhone.

I'm on iPad but I found the notification was turned on but the alerts were turned off. Will see what happens now that they are turned on.

I've found the notifications to be a bit wonky. I don't think it notifies you at all when you're doing something else on the iPad, though I'm still not certain! If it's off or I'm playing another game of Ascension it'll give me a notification, but if I'm browsing or something I don't always get notices; not sure how it all works. Anyway, anyone who wants a game can send me (Ventripotent) a 14-day game (or even better a 10 minute if you happen to be online at the same time as me), but send it soon. I'll be distracted by Warlock starting tomorrow, then Diablo, and then I have no idea when I'll get my turns in!

I get the same notifications for Ascension that I do with TTR:P or Hero Academy. Or a text.

Invites sent to Cyrax and Gnome.

Got it and sent you a game bud.

I also post quite a bit on a site called Quarter To Three that some of you might be aware of or participate on. We've been running regular Ascension tournaments for a while, and it was suggested over there that we have a friendly cross-forum Ascension competition. I don't know how we would structure it, but Dave Perkins is good at coming up with interesting tournament structures.

Would anyone be interested?

If it's 1v1 games, I'd be up for it.

I've been meaning to mention that I scored 106 on bigred the other day!

...unfortunately, he scored 109.

I really need someone to stop me from grabbing Spike Vixens. I'm going mana, I don't need a Spike Vixen. I had 4 mana, and bought a Spike Vixen instead of a Mystic. Now I'll inevitably lose some high powered artifact or hero by being one turn behind, but I just can't stop. I just can't let a military build have card drawing as well even when I ruin myself doing it. Bah! On a related note, I'll change strategy midgame if a Dandelion Witch pops up, I love playing Lifebound decks so much more than any other deck type right now.

It was suggested that we do a set of 1v1 matches and deem the winner of the most matches as the winner of the tournament. Seems reasonable to me.

I'll play for GWJ if you want.

I was going to wait until next month and jump in on the Qt3 Ascension tournament, but if we get some cross-site games going I'd be happy to join in.

Sure, I'd be interested in a tourney.

Traitor.

Goes and checks your rank in the May tourney.

We may allow that.

I'd be interested in a tournament. Qt3 is good people I believe. Maybe see if there's interest over at Idle Thumbs/3MA as well?

Lifebound is a lot of fun. I find myself enjoying them the most in Return of the Fallen while Mechana were more fun in base game.

Love Lifebound. I love getting that engine going.

Give me a couple days - I've been short on games.

I'd be up for playing in a tourney - hopefully the time zone difference won't matter too much.

Especially after two wins in a row against bigred

Edit: I've noticed the missing notifications sometimes as well. Especially if I switch device (iPad/iPhone) during a game.

I definitely see that when switching devices. I wish there was some type of pattern (e.g. it would make sense if the last device you used got future notifications) but, if there is one, I don't see it. Check both!

Sounds like a plan. Should I start a new thread here to organize, or should we just do it in this thread?

New thread would make sense just to keep things tidy.

Looks like Storm of Souls will be an in-app purchase for $3.99 and there will also be a promo pack for $0.99 - as posted here

That seems fair. Really looking forward to this.

I created a thread for Ascension vs. Qt3 signups!

Send me a PM if you're interested in representing GWJ!

WHAT?!?!?! When did these shenanigans happen?

Well, that would explain why I can't connect to the server. Off to update...

Am I crazy, or does the card text now look worse on the non-retina ipad? I swear it looks worse. I might be crazy though.
