Wiki pages that need Strategy Articles!
« on: January 19, 2015, 04:05:23 pm »

I figured this merited its own, single thread, rather than necro-ing every article thread in here.  I'd like this thread to mainly be discussion about whether or not a written article deserves to be on the wiki, but also a handy reference for article-writers looking for things to write about.

Card has article written, but is not on wiki page: (If you wrote one of these, please look over them again!)
Remodel (article)
Pawn (article)
Scout (article, though there seems to be some disagreement on its merits)
Caravan (article)
Golem (article)
Mountebank (article)
Fortune Teller (article)
Young Witch (article, but short and old)
Oasis (article, short, old, no headers)
Jack of all Trades (article by theory is fine, but this by AdamH and maybe this by HiveMindEmulator should be added)
Cartographer (article)
Haggler (article)
Squire (article)
Forager (article)
Hermit (article)
Death Cart (article and article)
Fortress (article)
Count (article)
Counterfeit (article, needs headers)
Graverobber (article and article)
Junk Dealer (article, seems to still need work)
Pillage (article, seems to still need work)
Advisor (article and article)
Plaza (article)
Taxman (article)
Butcher (article - short, LastFootnote said he would expand it)
Journeyman (article)
Black Market (Titandrake's article is up, but -stef- recently wrote a new one)
Governor (article)

Card has no article written:
Moat
Workshop
Feast
Militia
Smithy
Spy
Council Room
Festival
Witch
Adventurer
Secret Chamber
Great Hall
Steward
Coppersmith
Ironworks
Trading Post
Tribute
Nobles

Smugglers
Warehouse
Navigator
Pirate Ship
Salvager
Bazaar
Outpost
Treasury
Herbalist
Apprentice (Titandrake wrote a short one a while back that was ignored completely)
University
Alchemist
Familiar
Philosopher's Stone
Quarry
Talisman
Worker's Village

Forge
King's Court

Horse Traders
Harvest
Horn of Plenty
Jester
Nomad Camp
Spice Merchant

Inn
Mandarin
Margrave

Sage
Urchin
Armory
Feodum
Wandering Minstrel

Envoy
Walled Village

Card/page has short/outdated article:
Cellar

Thief (article)
Throne Room (article)
Laboratory
Library
Market
Courtyard
Swindler
Baron
Bridge
Mining Village

Sea Hag
Merchant Ship
Loan
Trade Route
Watchtower (new articles here and here)
Monument
City
Mint
Venture
Goons (good, just short)
Grand Market
Peddler
Menagerie

Page has sizable article, but could use a bit of tidying:
Wishing Well
Torturer
Ambassador
Treasure Map
Scrying Pool
Bishop (really, just needs mention of Rats, Fortress and Gardens)
Hoard
Remake
Hunting Party
Fairgrounds
Crossroads (by rinkworks, has huge blocks of text)

Develop (by dondon151, no headers)
Oracle (by WW, no headers)
Tunnel (just aesthetic things I'll take care of)
Noble Brigand (by timchen, short, needs headers)
Silk Road (by WW, some grammar check, maybe a header or two)
Trader (by DrFlux, headers please)
Ill-Gotten Gains (By Thisisnotasmile, a bit short, needs headers)
Border Village (by theory, no headers)
Farmland (by Brando Commando, could use some tidying)
Storeroom (by Qvist, needs headers and tidying)
Ironmonger (by theory?, needs tidying)
Band of Misfits (by DG, needs headers)
Mystic (by shark_bait, needs tidying)
Merchant Guild (by Qvist, needs synergies/antisynergies)

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

Scout (article, though there seems to be some disagreement on its merits)
lol, looking through that thread... and there aren't really any scout jokes. Even Robz!
I actually don't think Scout works very well with Crossroads, because Crossroads is so much better than Scout.

On topic, I think I might write an article for outpost soon.

Want to revisit your Watchtower article first, maybe tie things together with Jorbles' and theory's so it's not just a list of combos?  :)

Sure! EDIT: Done. Tell me if there's anything more you want me to do. I'm not going to get rid of the list of combos but I'm willing to talk more about anything else you might want. It will still need a bit of editing to put on the wiki, and I can help with that too.

Thanks for highlighting what is needed.

We should be cautious about beefing up articles that don't really need it, though. There is nothing wrong with good, short articles that do not explore every edge case ever. Not every card needs the full treatment.

A lot of the "short/outdated" articles are short, couple-paragraphs-long blurbs theory posted on his blog.  Most of them could use expanding into the style of articles the community now expects.  I'm not suggesting every article be turned into a laundry list of combos.

Wow that Apprentice article is old. Some comments on it now:

- 4 Provinces in 12 turns for pure BM-Apprentice does not sound standard. I probably only played 1 game and got very good draws.
- I don't mention that Apprentice is really good in engines. It's really good in engines. In general it focuses on Apprentice-BM and doesn't mention synergies.
- I downplay Apprentice-trashing Copper too much - you can actually do it more than it sounds you can, as long as you have another plausibly helpful buy. Trashing Copper often makes up for itself sometime later, since the cards you do draw from Apprentice will be better quality.
- I say some weird thing about overbuying terminals, it's okay to buy more terminals than normal but you need a decent chunk of Apprentices to make it happen. Now, I would say, "Buy terminals assuming you get good shuffle luck, and when you get average shuffle luck use Apprentice as a fallback"

For the articles that have been written but not added to the wiki, please register your thoughts here on possible improvement, and if they should be added!

Just as a reminder, there are still a bunch of cards that need articles, and a few of you have written short articles that it would be nice if you could flesh them out.  :)

Is there any reason my Upgrade article wasn't used and MMM's was?  Not that his is bad or anything, it was just less recent.  I haven't reread my article in a while, though, so it may actually be worse.

I have no idea; I didn't even know you'd written one!

Myself and one other person wrote articles on Archive (canít remember who the other author was, but I believe their article is on page 2 or 3). Mind you, both articles are relatively new and could probably use some tidying before being added to the wiki, but they do technically exist.
