  • Big deckbuilder update is live! 24

    I've been cooking this one for quite a while, and finally managed to push it out the door! Ashes.live now offers tools for determining your perfect dice spread in the deckbuilder (under the Costs tab), including choosing a First Five and seeing what you'll have to spend to get them in play.

    Let me know if you run into any problems with the update or have any suggestions to make the site better!

    This update also includes a bunch of quality of life changes around the site:

    • Phoenixborn stats are output when viewing a deck
    • Links for all conjurations are output in the card listing when a card has chained conjurations (like Summon Indiglow Creeper)
    • Phoenixborn name is shown in the homepage stream (since I don't have big beautiful images to distinguish recent Phoenixborn)
    • The detection of required dice types for your deck is improved (for instance, Rin's Fury no longer claims it requires [[natural]] dice, and choosing Aradel Summergaard does require [[natural]])
    • Longer delay before filtering card listings when typing
    • Cloned decks will now show up at the top of your My Decks list
  • Calling all Ashes 500 decks 0

    Ever wished that you could use those cards in your box that aren't Elephant Rider or Holy Knight? Or that you could shake up your local meta without needing to wait on Plaid Hat releasing new cards?

    Well now you can, with Ashes 500! When building an Ashes 500 deck, all Ashes cards are assigned point values and the total value of your deck must be 500 or less (while following all normal deck construction rules).

    Ashes 500 has been around for a while now (it was originally conceived by Elliot Kramer, and recently was resurrected by the community), but you had to build your deck using a custom spreadsheet. UNTIL NOW!

    Ashes 500 is now supported here on Ashes.live!

    Please note that I have also rewritten how the deckbuilder and card browser load and filter card listings. This is experimental, and I would love to hear if the card browser is behaving better or worse for you (theoretically, it should perform about the same on normal browsers, and much better on mobile or other lower-spec devices).

  • What's new with the site: posts! 0

    Hola, Ashes players! As part of my continued push to implement better social features on Ashes.live, I am very happy to announce the latest and greatest: posts! This is basically Ashes.live's very own "forum-lite", and offers a way to communicate with other Ashes.live users outside of deck and card comments (but with inline card previews and similar niceties).

    There are currently three sections where you can submit new posts:

    As of this post, all of them are empty, so get cracking! [[charm:class]]

    Lastly, if you have a news announcement, event info, or similar that you would like pinned to the top of the homepage for better exposure, please contact me with the link and I'll give it a gander.
