The former, I knew, it is still so hard, I rammed my face into every pixel I swear.

Yeah Netrunner is an incredible game.  Shaper is my favorite runner faction too.

Also, I vigorously criticize anyone and everyone who doesn't run 3 Diesel.  You always run all 3 Diesel.

Spoil me this, are there any prize levels besides heart of the mountain and it's pretty low cost of 4 hearts?

I'm not sure I'm in enough to 100% this.

Awesome thanks!  Dieselrunner isn't a netrunner reference right?

So this is on the switch now.  After I beat Celeste I am thinking about playing it on Switch.

My main concern is, do I have to fight people playing Mobile while on the Switch, and do the people on Mobile have better controls than I do?

You'd need 5 of them I guess, at which point it's not feasible.

It's finally "launched"? It's been considered in beta longer than any game I've ever known.

You can trash your deck down to 4 Brothels, go into infinite debt, never buy cards, and choose to trash Copper over and over again.

This seems like it's gonna be one of my favorite expansions much more than the last few.

Sculptor is such a cool card, I love seeing cards I am about to buy/not buy and then play incorrectly, more room to grow.

It's only certain floors where I gradually shift from upright, to right, to downleft, for different purposes during the floor, and then by the time I'm at that down left I need say, an up left dash.  But from all the gradual shifting, I've loft a sense of what angle the control stick is actually at, I'd have to look down to know.  3D games give you a constant indicator because the character moves differently for each of those tiny degrees, but based on observing your character in Celeste you only know a 45 degree range of possible positions the stick might be in from looking up at the screen.

The Nintendo 64 controller had notches at each 45 degree location which largely obviated this, but the well for the Switch stick is totally circular.

When I need a dash or certain direction from a dead stop, I don't have much if any trouble.

OH you said directional buttons. Like the x y b a.  Yeah I think those are probably very precise.  They're just stiff and tough to me.  I have a feeling if I fought the learning curve on them I'd be rewarded and yet I'm not going to.

Yep Switch.  I might take the 70$ hit on that, actually.  I'm sure I'll need a Dpad again.

Is there a good dpad controller for celeste? I keep getting diagonals I don't want using the stick.

I think Anibaldo is the best draft hero.  Flexibility is powerful.

Whatever you're trying to say about Misinformation, I think you're mistaken.  It is incredibly likely that playing misinformation on an enemy Seduce might sometimes be the best play if misinformation is already in your deck.  It's not true that Seduce is "countered" by the head to head scenario, the player who used Misinformation is down 3 gold.  And it's not true that Misinformation is a stronger draft pack 1 pick 1.  I'd draft Goat Poultice or Stratagem over Seduce pack 1 pick 1, but I wouldn't draft Misinformation over Seduce.  Misinformation is close to blank against Doge Monteferro, and Seduce can both appear in the bank before a powerful card like Veil Warden, Hedge Guardian, or Bishop ruins your day, and show up a little late and still bail you out, while Misinformation has to be there in the first place.  Misinfo is a great card to draft though, especially in Doge and Anibaldo.

That 7-1 anibaldo sounds pretty good.  I'd avoid the second forgery most of the time, it stacks rather questionably and I've had some bad experiences that way.  Gout Poultice is arguably the best draft card so that is a big component of your win, along with Veil Warden which is absurd (and is part of why Seduce is Absurd, it's 50% of the realistic answers to a resolved Veil Warden, the other answer is Mayhem.
Liturgy is definitely the most questionable card you drafted.  Oh, wait, it's not, because you named the cards wrong.  You drafted benediction, not liturgy.  Liturgy is 1 magic for each ally.  I'd still hesitate to draft Benediction but the wombo combo with Tavern wench is kewl.

Tournament is way more fun than constructed, but as far as your constructed comments ago, a lot of this is the weird side effects of the upgrading system.  The game is balanced with fully upgraded cards (there is a test server where people play with fully upgraded cards), and increasing gold costs affects everyone a little differently so it warps what the best deck for each account is.  Vespitole takes some of the least damage because they are in it for a longer game anyway.  Metris is really bad for new players either because the deck is aggressive and increased gold cost makes you one turn too slow in killing, or because the deck is not aggressive and you don't have the epic coins that help you play a long game even though Metris's self-destructing cards are trying to keep you from doing so (mostly fecundity charm, since champion's paiza is unlocked by ranking a draft hero to 28).  Endazu and daramek are kind of in the middle for new deck.

A really really really powerful deck to build towards on a new account, that someone in kongregate chat told me about, is sac-boar-esra, you won't see it much on the server because the newbies don't know about it and the pros play mogesh because he's more fun.  The deck is
Ritual Sacrifice x3
Herd of Boars x 3
Orphan Gang x1
Scrivener x 1
Serpent Altar x1
Flex slot (make sure the flex slot isn't a creature that will keep you from redrawing herd of boars)

It's very powerful for farming the AI and for beating other humans too.  No rares, no cards you receive for leveling up heroes to 28, very low dependency on epic coins.

I can't play action games in bed and still get sleepy.  If you can, then I get it, I can see how that's a niche.  Especially if grinding ranks feels "productive". I have to stick to turn based fare.

I don't have other short blocks of time that would fit a mobile Moba.  I try to give anything worth watching my full attention.

Thanks for sharing your experience, it is one of those things one can't learn unless one asks.

If you have more cards, Conclave would be the best teacher about +1 Action being a resource.

There's also "each other player discards down to four cards in hand, then gains a Copper if the top card of her discard pile is a Victory card."

The Councilroom engines won't be dissuaded from playing the card.

I don't find Seduce that offensive.  I think certain strategies would get out of hand without it if we don't add a different hard removal to the game.

I'm also unsure why "next clean-up" is preferable to doing it immediately.

If you trashed it immediately, it wouldn't give you any top-decking, because it wouldn't be in play when you bought any cards.

The solution would be to give it the Travelling Fair wording of "when you gain a card this turn", rather than "while this is in play". Then you can have it be trashed immediately.
Sure, that would work better.

I made it non optional so that it's not too good in Gardens games.  Bad call?

Well, I'm not trying to quit an addiction here, I'm just quitting something that I never really feel like doing, anyway.
You're also making sure to tell us all.
I interpret "why I'm quitting" announcements as a valiant attempt to combat the inherent response bias in a community almost exclusively consisting of feedback from the people who have remained within it.

Currently I have this thing where I enter the URL for Dominion Online, then remember my subscription is expired, then enter the URL for War of Omens.  Sorry Stef :(

Keeping this out of general.

Eager Seal
4$ Treasure
Worth 2$
+1 Buy
While this is in play, when you gain a card that more than 4$, trash Eager Seal next clean up.
While this is in play, when you gain a card, put it onto your deck.
