Some useful information and links:
Assassin's Creed Recollection is a "real-time board game" in which you compete in political battles for dominance of territories using key characters and locations from the entire Assassin's Creed universe!

I must say that I was skeptical about this game but decided to give it a try because it was only $2.99 and the trailer actually looked kind of intriguing. After finally getting the hang of it, I have to say that it is a very nice little game. I have never played a card game like this before, but I've already gotten the hang of it and am enjoying seeing the different tactics used by the opponents in each mission.

The production values on this are surprisingly high, with great artwork and menu design throughout the app. And it was a great touch to include artwork, tracks from the AC soundtracks, and Embers along with it. I'm also very happy about the performance of the game on my first generation iPad. It runs very snappy and smooth and hardly ever crashes, which I can't say about a lot of apps like this.

I hope that future content updates introduce more story elements to it. Something along the lines of the amount of text in the Project Legacy stories would make the story here really shine for me. Right now the story feels just a little too light.

I love the game. The card-based battle system is beautifully designed and easily the best on the AppStore. I only own a fraction of the cards but I can already see the potential of all that is to come. The illustrations are consistently excellent and I also like the music.
Here are some suggestions to make the game even better:
1) I think the card shop that comes with Shadow Era is perfect. I can buy boosters, starter packs, single cards, and also sell those cards that I don't need any more. Prices are regulated by demand but they never become exorbitant. I don't understand why Assassin Packs are nine times as expensive.
2) I frequently lost contact to the servers and could not buy cards.
3) There has to be some incentive to replay missions. e.g. With a new deck that I construct I can play the missions again.
4) The narrative links between missions do not draw me into the story. With the various factions in the play there is a great opportunity to create closer links between the story and the game play. The many characters are also confusing. It would be better to come back to certain opponents instead of introducing new ones for almost every mission.

I am greatly looking forward to the first update.

bukowski113, thanks for including our review. For anyone interested add me for play, my Game Center ID is TheWaveCom.

twenty_glyphs, the ticker currently shows that there will be additional single player story missions.

Personally I can't wait as this community expands, probably the best representation of a touch control game I have seen developed for the iPad.

I can't even imagine this game on my iPhone. It would definitely require a new interface for a great deal of it. Would be interesting to have a variation of sorts that shared your card library though. That would be mandatory for me if I were going to go between iPhone and iPad for such a game.

It's THAT big? Man I want this game. Too bad. Damnit.

It's THAT big?

Well, if you look at the playing field, you have the main board that is three slots on each side plus two agent slots per area of control plus two slots for the ability cards. That makes the main board itself SIX slots having to hold a minimum of SIXTEEN memory sequence cards. This is not counting the ability cards that float during play and take up more screen real-estate. Then on top of all of that you have your deck and your Agent HQ where your agents are put into standby plus you need to see the opponents HQ to know the cards they have activated in order to counteract them when they go into play.

I'm no longer a UI designer so I don't know what would be possible but it seems to me that it would take some big changes in gameplay in order to make it work on the iPhone. The more I play it since my initial review, I have come to admire how perfectly it was designed for the iPad. It really uses every pixel available while still retaining the ability to read your cards and keep track of everything going on all at once.

The only downfall to me has already been noted, and that is that since release the store sometimes times out. I spent credits on a pack that timed out and it disappeared, luckily it was purchased with credits earned in game and not with real money.

Now I wait for the community to grow and new single player challenges. I would have gladly paid 9.99 instead of 2.99 for this as an iPad game. It's a AAA title in my opinion because of it's targeted design and not just a port like the majority of iOS titles out there from large publishers.

I'm in agreement here. This title deserves it's own area. It's a superb game that will garnish a thriving community, especially if there is someplace to come and discuss it in more than one thread (which can get confusing).

the cards that I have seen relate to Ezio's timeline, nothing so far from Altair or AC1 however by no means have I collected them all yet!

definately seen ezio, Da'vinci, borgia, la volpe, the pope, the mecrenaries.

I guess its all about the AC2 franchise of the game. I would almost suggest buying an iPad just for this game if your heavily into card collectable games and the assassins creed universe.

I have played them all so far, AC1, AC2, AC2B, AC2R, ACrearmed, AC project legacy and now this one puts the icing on the cake definately!!

1 mixed pack ( 500)
4 templar pack ( 400 )

A lot of people are seeing similar things, the booster packs are actually aquired when you click buy, and added to your sequences however the opening of the deck and the adding them to your sequence aspect of the purchase is not completed for some reason.

However all of the cards that have been purchased should definately be within your sequence deck.

12-09-2011, 07:34 AM
also another bug/glitch/exploit I found whilst updating the application (even though I said I would wait.... I couldnt!)

if you uninstall and reinstall the app you go through the tutorial again, and that gives you a free templar pack every time.

I havnt testing this fully but Im thinking because the card database is in the cloud each time we reinstall and run the tutorial and get the templar pack that automatically adds the deck to our saved data, then it all comes rushing down with all the existing cards we had?

May want to plug that if it is an issue

I'm really saddened that the update has broken such a nearly perfect game to such an extent. The new features are amazing. Especially earning XP for online play. But I have lost some cards packs as well. They are not in my memory sequences even though I purchased them. My review still stands but please Ubisoft, you can see that this community could be amazing if it is patched up proper. We all wait on an update and look forward to getting back to the awesome game that this is.

And to quote above me. I agree that if you like trading card games and especially assassin's creed. Buy and iPad just for this one game once it is fixed. There are other TCGs on the iPad but this is by far the best.

add random skirmish fight with IA, without know who are your opponent, the battle will be more exciting and think about beat that AI battle for get Animus credit as reward.

play offline in locals without wifi or poor signal 3g is boring and dont have any reward...

Hello there.

I'm quite happy to finally find a place to read and talk about this surprinsingly wonderfull game.

I just love it. And I'm a huge collectible card games player since nearly 20 years. Both online with Shadow Era or Elementz,and IRL with mtg, wow, etc.

I'm saying this to help you understand that I'm not easily pleased.

I tried the game by curiosity, expecting a crappy licence usage to steal me 2$, and I was plain wrong.

It's polished, nice, deep, fun and really addictive!

But it can be improved a lot.

- We need a multiplayer rating system.

- We need more filters in the deck building area (rarity, faction, cost).

- We need Ubisoft to support the community. Right now, if you hit Google,you will have to fight to find this single thread onthe whole Internet about the game. I'd love to talk about decks, strats, athmosphere etc.

- fix the 1.2.2 crash bug please. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

- gamecenter achievments descriptions (one of them is flawed,the one with the Venicemission).

Well I have more to say, but it would be too much... If it's not already the case. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I really want to like this game, but it didn't take long for it to become extremely frustrating.

I'm only 9 missions in and I've been stuck on mission 9 since about a day after I bought the game. I'm sure some people will say I'm just not good enough, and that's true. I've never played a card game like this in my life. But the game isn't helping either.

I don't know if I need better cards or better strategies. I even bought some credits to see if some new cards would help.

I also just played a multiplayer game, which I won, and received nothing for. I know everyone likes nickel and diming us with in-app-purchases these days, but this game needs to be less stingy with the credits.

You can have all colors in all boosters.

But Crime cards are in majority Assassin cards, and Order cards are in majority Te

Is it me or right now, I can't patch, and when I play, I quickly got a win because all my opponents seems to be stucked at the deck selection screen. Any update on that maybe?

I think I saw your Femme Fatale deck few times and I did beat it once out of 3. Very fast deck.

Some of my decks, as requested.

Courtidraw
- 20 Crime Courtisans (cheap ones).
- 5 Claudia Auditore
- 5 Femme Fatale
- 5 Knowledge is power
- 5 Forced charity
- 5 Quick study
- 5 Lassitude

Easy to play. Just build up the combo and your ressources at the same time, wait for your 6 Courtesans to be summonned, and kill with Femme Fatale. It's fast, relaible, but I don't find it very fun to play.


Bloody Pink
- 5 Niccollo Machiavelli
- 5 Ezio Auditore da firenze
- 5 Political Patronage
- 5 Divine Intervention (answered prayers can do it too)
- 5 Art gallery
- 5 Legionnaire Thespian
- 5 Piou Garden
- 3 Pagan High priest
- 2 Ancestral discoveries
- 5 Mysterious strangers
- 5 Heathen followers

My favorite deck to play. Synergies are numerous, and the deck is really fast. Try just to play the Art galleries before Ezio.
With the same base of pink cards, I have a version with Thieves instead of Faith cards. But I find it less reliable.


Da Vinci Deck
- 4 Dama Rossa
- 5 Political Patronage
- 5 Knowledge is power
- 3 Merchant guild
- 2 Art gallery
- 3 Leonard's workshop
- 5 Honest workers
- 5 Amerigo Vespucci
- 3 Leonardo da Vinci
- 3 Pilfer Supplies
- 5 In deapth analisis
- 5 Lassitude
- 2 Daring experiment

This one is very fun, but I think it has no chance against Femme Fatale sadly. It will crush a lot of decks anyway.
Just build up ressources while drawing your deck until you can play the sites and win with them in one or two days.


Vatican force
- 5 Basilica di San Petro
- 5 Roman temple ruins
- 5 Knowledge is Power
- 5 quiet chapel
- 5 Seeking sanctuary
- 5 Judgement day (Forli can be played instead, but it's less good)
- 5 Roma, Vaticano district
- 5 Pontifical Highmass
- 5 Wrath of the Righteous
- 5 In deapth analysis

Straigh forward to play. Tricks are limited to sites positionning and San Petro playing.


I have a few more decks, and cheaper decks too. If it interests people, I can post them here too.

Feel free to discuss and critic my decks.

I kinda use the Vatican Force Deck. Allthought I dont have every card 5 times as you have. So I have to use Fieldd studies 5 times, since I have only 1 in depth analysis (How did u get all ure cards so easily? for me this is quit impossible)

I Also use the Golden income boosters. Locations I found the Basilica is kinda anoying, so I have only 2 of them but 5 Great Libraries and 5 Roman Temple Ruins.

I also use 3 copies of the score 5 cards and some other Sites, but basicly its the same deck, and the only real problem is if enemy has the same strategy or overwhelms you early with boosts, till u get ure wrath out.

I played 2 times against Femme fatale deck. Won once, lost the 2nd cause i never had draw and used my wrath not at an optimum time

Femme Fatale
Cost: 4

Vatican Force is very modulable. The best card it has is Pontifical highmass. In mirror games, the one with the most copies of it in hand wins. Try the AI (mission 18) version of it to get an evidence of that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Why dont u play the location in femme fatale, that gives surprise to all actions? I find the location pretty good, especially if u play with alot of card draw. Usually you profit alot more.

I like Blue control, the number of surprises *including Cesare* mixes very well with the desctruction from assasins. The Door that draws and boost +2

Hi Assassins,

Our new patch is out (version 1.3.3) and we wanted once again to thank you all for your patience!
Some of you suffered from issues with the previous update, and we would like to apologize for that (and hope you will have fun with the extra credits you’ve been granted).

Now, here is what you get in this update:
- Tweaked Multiplayer game speed
- New rewards system for Multiplayer
- Bug fixes

Multiplayer: Reward and pace

Multiplayer matches grant rewards based on your daily wins.
A clear reward screen is now implemented for a better feedback.
Here is how it works:
-100 Animus Credits for 3 wins
-100 Animus Credits for 8 wins
-100 Animus Credits for 15 wins

The pace for the multiplayer game has also been tweaked to its intended value.
This will provide a more intense experience and reduce the slow stalemate that some of you have experienced.


Next Updates

Speaking of updates, we’re working on the French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portugese (Brasil) and Japanese version. They should be available very soon.

At the same time, we’re going to implement a leaderboard based on the XP on Gamecenter so that you can compare your progress and connect with people of the same level. We’re also working on an improved matchmaking system to create a proper ranking for Multiplayer and prepare for a stable tournament structure.

We’re also working on new Challenge missions that will be part of the Story mode (Single player).
As such, each victory will grant Animus Credits. And as they are even more difficult than regular missions, the reward will be greater.
We’ll keep you updated on when the Challenge missions will be available.


Network issues

In order to solve most of the network problems, we migrated to a more stable server. We also implemented a few fixes in the next update.
For those who had the impression that they lost some Packs due to connection problems, it is just a feedback issue. All the Memories are correctly added to your database.
If you still think that there is an issue, do not hesitate to contact our customer support at http://support.ubi.com/

Thanks you for playing our games and See you online soon.

Thanks Kimberly for your reply, if I may ask for another card tip/spoiler, I'm interested to know about the Leonardo's Workshop, another rare card I'm still missing... Maybe until tomorrow (I'm planning to buy some other Assassin or Mixed booster, wish to complete my collection since I like this game very much)...!

That Femme Fatale seems really a groundbreaking one, until now I have the Juno and The Pantheon cards like one-shot finishers, unfortunately the Magianis's one, even if not so much rare, never appeared in my boosters and - guess what - it's exactly one of the cards I like to have asap!!!

I'm playing mostly using site-based deck (I have every sort of removal in almost every color, and Black and Red features some cards I have in multiple copies that I like)... I like to use "Plentiful Crop" possibly in 3/4 copies in every deck I play, since methinks that boosting the initial reserve of gold can really speed up the game and maybe give some better chances to answer accordingly to opponent's plan... Any advice about deck speeding? I appreciate your opinion also about my analysis on that "Plentiful Crop", I have some friends that say it's useless and some other say it's good... I'm trying to refining some of my decks (one is posted on a thread in boardgamegeek website), being a former Magic player I'm still waiting... How to say... To "understand and see the above-from-all-view" of the current metagame... That depends heavily on knowing all cards of the collection, thus my indecision on what to do properly. ^^

I know this has very little to do with the technical side of AC Recollection, but did anyone get a grip on who Lord Captain and "I" was?
I either missed an introduction or it was up to the player to discover these through active internet researching. Cheers, Assassins.

Leonardo's Workshop:
Site, cost 5, 1 influence.
Effect: you gain 1 score in the region each time you draw one card.

Plentifull crop.
My pov is quite simple: if you have something to refill your hand in your deck, then it's strong (if you play green). If not, it's only for ressource starving decks. I prefer my ressources cards to do something more, or to give more.

@Gabe: thx for the update. As said, the Auction House is the most important feature I want to see in the near future. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I absolutely love this game... Having quit Magic MANY moons ago cos it was just too damn expensive and irritating to keep up with the new types, I'm hoping this one will be reasonable. And not having to buy sleeves is a bonus http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now - we need a decent space to discuss!!!

Playing basically a refined basic deck... Getting new cards is REALLY difficult unless you sink some $$$... 50$ seems like a reasonable entry fee... I wonder if that's enough to get all the cards one would need?

Auction house!! How would the auction house work?

I assume you would buy credits like you can at the moment, and spend those credits bidding against other players for individual cards that are placed onto the auction house by the card owner. if you win you lose the credits you bid with and you get the card, the previous owner of said card would then get the credits you paid to spend on other decks or on the auction house.

think of it as a community within the game, and a lot of people will quickly establish the highest value cards, and play the auction house games of buying low, selling high..... I cant wait!

Since we are sharing strategies as well, I post some general Staples and possible strategies for the colours:

Green (Scholar):
Green is limited in winning Options, and fills more the support or draw Color. All Engeneer Cards Support strategies with Sites, wich are generally to slow compared to the Vatican Power. Also their allies have lower bodies and they use alot of bounce effects. Sending Cards back to hand is usually only good when you can win a game fast.

Notable Cards:
-Leonardo Da Vinci *a 10 cost 5/5 ally that draws 2 cards and has cunning/fierce. Awesome Win condition*
-In-Depth Analysis *Pay 6 draw 3, unconditional card draw, and the only that is that strong*
-Knowledge is Power *1 cost 1 income boost and draw a card. Cheap and effecient ressource booster card*
-Quik Study *Search your deck for any memmory: Costs 3, if you rely on a single Win Condition*
-Field Study *Pay 4 draw 1 for every Site. Conditional Card draw, but if your deck is built for it, u draw 3 cards very cheap*

Red (Faith):
Red is my favorite Colour so far. It has alot of manipulating cards, that have influence to every area of the game. They have Strong Sites and act as good Support with Discard and Destruction or have their own Win Condition. They do not possess cheap allies that ahve any fighting Power and are not good for Beatdown Strategies.

Notable Cards:
-Silvio Barbarigo *Cost 7 is 3/4 and is allways safe. Very strong when combined with Mass Desctructions like Animus Reboot. Needs a deck around him*
-Judgment Day *A Win condition, that can boost a site easly over 10 influence and with variable cost*
-Quiet Chapel *Cost 2, gain 2 influence and 1 income. U get alot for the cheap cost of only 2, awesome card*
-Roma, Vaticano Dsitrict *Blocks that Agent can score in a region (your own as well), but perfect card for Strategies base on Sites*
-Pontifical High Mass *Pay 5 get 2 influence on every site. Key card in a site Strategy where you will use Cheap Sites and this card to boost them*
-Divine Intervention *Pay 1 +1 Income and enemy discards his highest cost card. This card is very solid when playing Beatdown and using red as support, to clear away the enemy grand card he is aiming for*
-Misterious Stranger *Costs 3 is 2/1 and enemy discards a card. Limiting your enemies options can be strong, when supporting or in a main strategy*
-Wrath of the Righteous *Pay 7 Destroy all Agents. Very ceap mass destruction, that can deal with many strategies. Also helps you with Silvio or the Vatican Deck*

Interesting strategies & created deck analysis going on here.

I've created a few decks myself, and like Kimberly1979 a veteran of the CCG universe since way back. I've invested $60+ on boosters thus far for Assassins Creed Recollection.

I am still learning, practicing which memories work great with what. Which expertise best compliments the other within a sequence. And most importantly how "many" individual memory "x" amount is needed for maximum draw stability without filling my hand with the same kind.

All these particulars help me to better understand the template of a synergy I am experimenting with "Or" a synergy I've accidently discovered. So many memories, so many possibilities.

I'll post my creations as soon as I grasp a better understanding. I am currently level 17 with probably a win ratio of say 80% wins. Until then, I'll gladly keep absorbing what is being shared here in the forums. Nice to meet you my fellow Assassins keep the knowledge tree growing.

Ubisoft & UbiGabe. Thanks for listening, corresponding & most importantly, filling up an empty void I so longed for in the CCG genre. I love this game and will gladly throw my money at you. Just keep the great stuff coming.

My GC name: odi0n (that's a zero not a capital O)

**IN GAME HAND SCROLL IDEA FOR SIMPLER NAVIGATION OF CARDS, FLUID "NON INTRUSIVE" MANUVERING**

This game has the slickest, freshest, most intuitive UI I have seen to date, I am in love!!!

That being said, I've noticed, when scrolling through your hand in game, it becomes a "instant on demand" chore when you need something right away as you click away to get to a certain card(memory). One must reach over, click the red arrow, click it, check/choose your memory and pick it.

I find this procedure slows the speed at which one goes about making "visual identity" with they're cards(memory). How? The whole top portion of your physical hand jumps onto "your visual space" of your iPad screen as you perform the red arrow click.

The top part of your hand potentially nullifies any concocting thoughts you may have been able to combinate. But due to "blocking" your view you never get to, well... Concoct.

*This has happened to me countless times, even lost games due to not seeing a particular card that just came in or was there, while I was in the middle of a hectic "flinging" card affair with my rival.*

THE TOP PORTION OF YOUR PHYSICAL HAND AND HOW IT "DOES" INTERFERE" VISUALLY BLOCKING YOUR INGAME HAND:
I call this "blocking" what's horrible about it, it creates mental interrupts, that within that "inth" of a nano second it takes your mind to formulate a thought churned from "visual influence" and how you will go about exacting this influence - all that "potential" inspiring stratagem, visually blocked and down the drain, interceded by your damned top hand blocking your view as you *click* *click* *click* Lol. Especially when things get hectic on the battlefield it's the worse.
Even worst, you notice the strategy "after" you picked something else to play. Why, because you somehow missed "seeing" that card.

What if there is a way to "skip" these unnecessary steps and go directly to the memory you'd like to view/choose? Effectively cutting out 2 of these middlemen involved with the blocking effect:

THE 2 MIDDLEMEN:
(1)The Arrow pressing (Brings up your top portion of your hand as click on it)
The arrow is the instigator. Lol.

(2)Your top hand, the culprit responsible for obstructing your field of view (FOV) as you click.

I think there is a way to fix this, yet I do not know if I am the only one feeling/noticing this.
Anybody else out there? If not, damn, then I'm on one. Lol.


PROPOSED SOLUTION:
Exchange the arrow click for a "slightly transparent" long slider layed out horizontally directly underneath your memories - just use a finger to "scroll" through your hand from left to right & vice versa.

Not only does it eliminate the block, but it also institutes gesture based movement for a more slicker kinetic movement that corresponds with the games smooth UI -- it'll just feel more natural. If some people don't agree, how about making it a toggle option for those who want it.

Want to make this navigation EVEN smoother? When using the slider to browse your memories, use a finger and slide it upwards on a card to turn it around and read its abilities behind it, then slide downward on the card to close it. I feel this would be way swifter than double tapping.

How do you guys in the forum feel about this?
UbiGabe, have you acknowledged this in hand ergonomic questioning as well?

The games to credit ratio is extremely stingy. You would need to WIN 54 games spread out over three days at 18 wins per day to get 900 credits, just enough to get ONE Asssassins booster. 54 wins to get ONE BOOSTER??? In shadow era i would have owned every card in thst time.

I know Christmas is the time for scrooge but this is ridiculous. We are not winning actual money here, they are virtual cards!! Let's face it, the best cards are there, and once you have opened 30 cheap boosters you have ten copies of all the crap.

And a credit cap at 18 games per day? Stingy on the credits and then a cap on play time? That is beyond ridiculous and into lunacy. Yes, we don't want people to go nuts and win maybe 400 credits per day. Where would they spend it all?

There is also no point to xp. I am at level 20 and didn't gain a single card for it.

HUUUUGE GLITCH PLEASE FIX ASAP!

I just played a player called:
GAMEMECHANIC. He used the engineer action card called:

"Impending Pandemic" descriptions says:
(Put all agents and sites in their Controller's hand)

I had six agents on the board, he had at least 8 sites on the board. He returned all my cards to my hand, and then they died. He however kept his cards. This **** really burns. I know it's not Ubi's fault, there is always glitches/bugs. Not saying its his fault either. I just hope he realizes this was definitely not skill but a accidental cheat that helped him.

To make matters more worse, since he had 32 coin his spells that were not surprise spells, we're playing out swiftly and quickly like surprise spells.

Please fix this. This really burns. He stole 2 games from me twice with this already.
Especially when I already put in $60 plus into this game.

I wondered what the point of XP is as well. Is it only me, or is it impossible to skip the intro since the latest patch?

Anyway had some very fun games yesterday. Wich deck is Firence? I found the singled player campaign quit easy, only the assassin mission was a pain, till i modified my deck to beat it.

I think its quit ok. The Templar packs offer enough strategies and cardds, i wish only in depth analysy would be templar, while when u want to play with more advanced cards you need to invest money.

Btw what CCG Background you guys have? Mine is:
Magic 1994-1998 *Only Limited Tourneys*
Doomtown *No Tourney*
Pokemon *Only Haymaker Time*
World of Warcraft *Swiss National Champ 2011 (At least something I can brag )http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif since 2009* *active*
Shadowera *Well this year of course* *active*

No, you cannot skip the intro anymore. These patches are making things worse, not better. Ubisoft is getting good at apologies. I wish they would spend more time on testing before releasing these 'patches'. It still loses online connection if you leave the vs screen to change your deck and go back. i have to constantly kill the app and restart it to get the connection back. Worst online interface i have ever experienced.

Let me share with you what I think is my current strongest deck.

** Claudia Auditore Deck **
- 2 Discreet Calling
- 5 Knowledge is Power
- 5 Forced Charity
- 4 Quick study
- 1 Target Practice

- 1 Fabio Orsini
- 2 Fiora Cavazza
- 2 Paola
- 2 Madonna Solari
- 1 Claudia Auditore, Assassin
- 1 Claudia Auditore
- 2 Maria Auditore
- 2 Amerigo Vespucci
- 1 Antonio de Magianis
- 2 Mario Auditore
- 1 Giovanni Auditore
- 3 Ezio Auditore, Assassin
- 3 Leonardo Da Vinci

- 3 Engineer's Workroom
- 5 Assassins Guild
- 2 Academy of Physic

This one is as awesome to play as complex. It's a control deck, you have to evaluate threats played by your opponent and counter them while building a big threat yourself.

To do so, you have two big synergies: sites and agents.
- AGENTS:
* Control of sites: Maria Auditore can discard an agent (preferably a Courtesan) to draw Antonio or Giovanni giving you the edge in the site war.

* Control of Agents: Maria can make you draw Mario, Ezio, Amerigo and Fiora to take control of the Board.

* Threat: just play some Leonardo and Ezios to propose a challenging threat. Try to keep some of them in your hand too, because mass destruction spells are your biggest weakness. So, don't play more than 1 or 2 unless you have to.

- SITE:
* Control of Sites: just keep bumping and playing Assassins Guilds to reduce your opponent influence where you have to. Be sure to play the Academy in a region without site-threat.

* Control of Agents: the same tactic will also deal with agents on the field. Only Safe agents will be a problem.

* Threat: you can cumulate a few sites on a region to slowly take it for you.

Now that you got the whole deck mechanic, you know what to pick with the numerous "tutors" the deck has. Maria, Madonna and the Academy are key cards you have to protect.

The trick is now to get enough ressources to play the deck. Knowlege is Power and Forced Charity are here for that. In early game, prioritize them because without a correct amount of ressources, you won't be able to have fun with this deck.

That's it. Feel free to critic it, to tweak it, and to play it yourself. Right now, I'm undefeated with it (both AI and PvP) and I'm only scared by Safe-mass destruction decks (like the one played by AI with Silvio Barbarigo). The good thing is that the Assassins Guild spam will deal with 90% of your opponents by itself while your Agents can de whatever they want.

Enjoy!

(and I'll try to post a templar only deck this evening, promess) ^^

Amazing game so far ubi. Really enjoying it. Still getting crashes on my iPad2 every 4-5 games. Especially after defeats.

I agree with most of the others. I wish the payout for winning was greater and uncapped for store points. Looking forward to the auction house function and more single player campaigns.

Keep it up, and lets get the bugs out. I'll be playing for a while.

I wish there was some sort of messaging system to the other player. often I see he handwriting on the wall and if my opponent makes a good play I like to offer a quick "nice game"

For Templar Only, why not just build a simple Noble Deck?

Blue:
5x Militia Pikeman (1)
5x Teodor Viscardi (1)
4x Dante Moro (1)
5x Arqbusier (2)
5x Octavian de Valois (2)
5x Beautiful Heiress (3)
5x Charles de la Motte (3)
4x Templar Sanctum (4)
3x Just Cause (7)
3x Royal Decree (7)

The last 6 cards you can choose as you want. Id maybee take by order of the kings or a counter against something launching. or my facorite Card in this deck would be the Assasin Card Divine intervention, but then its not Templar only http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Kimberly1979
12-14-2011, 11:14 AM
Yeah Noble Deck is a good Templar only deck, but not cheap enough as it has too much rares.

Here is a very cheap deck that has a good chance to beat everything.

** Papal Militants **
- 5 Persistant Handlers
- 5 Militant Militia
- 5 Micheletto Corella
- 5 Silvestro Sabatini
- 5 Cahin
- 5 Papal Influence
- 5 Basilica di San Marco
- 5 A call to Action
- 2 Ercole Massimo
- 3 Tactical Upheaval
- 5 Rares between: Caha, Man of the People, Carnivale, Calling all stand-ins.

So it's a Millitant rush, with Faith cards providing a second breath when your opp starts to retake control of the board.
It only has 5 rares, and you can choose which one you want to play. This deck should be buildable with the 300 credits daily reward. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hope this will help.

By the way, that six courtesan & win spell. Vicious. Lol.

Well many things are viable. Noble Rush can overrun most decks, but if some single synrgies get destroyed it gets slowed down alot and mass removal. Militants I find is just slower than nobles.

Vatican Deck, can get overruned or mass site destruction/inf Reducer catches it offguard.

Courtisan deck, is pretty safe against simple beatdown, if they have no counter, but its weak against cards like wanted Posters/Wrath and similair.

Decks With 10 cost 5/5 lategamer have problems with single card removal, especially the 2 cost counter.

The Meta I see includes mostly beatdown, and some Toolbox Control. So you wont really play against so many Courtesan decks.

Cross posted from touch-arcade. My current favorite deck:

Royal Blitz

Income:
2x Plentiful Crop
3x Knowledge Has A Price
2x Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained
5x Knowledge is Power
5x Forced Inheritance
2x Pilfer Supplies

Tutors & Card Drawers:
5x Quick Study
4x In-depth Analysis -> took out the 5th because I felt it slows down the deck a bit

Control:
2x Tactical Upheaval
2x Court Order or Scientific Espionage (can't decide which one I like better)
2x Condottiero Tactics (too expensive, may replace these)
2x Animus Reboot: neutralize all agents and sites

Primary Winners:
3x Royal Intervention: get 1 score for each gold spent
1x Pantheon : resets score to 0, controlling this wins the game

Secondary Winners:
5x Lair of Romulus
2x San Gimignano cost 5, infl 8: all your regions scores reset to 0
1x Forli cost 8, infl 6
1x Monteriggioni : all actions are surprises
1x Cesare Borgia: cost 10, 5/5 official fierce, resolves as surprise


HOW-TO: ramp up to 12 asap, tutor for Royal Intervention and cast them. Be careful on using cards that also benefit your opponent. Apply pressure by dropping big sites while you ramp up. Sounds simple but there are a lot of judgment calls on when to drop what and in what order. Timing the launches can be make all the difference.

You need assess opponent's deck speed and adjust accordingly, do you rush or do you wait and wipe the board first. Do you drop the sites and lose some momentum? It's fun to play and can be nail biting.

Having good initial hand of income generators is critical... if you only have 1-2, you're in trouble.

If and when I get Leonardo, I may replace Cesare Borgia.. or I may even go agent-less..

Hey Assassins,
In update 1.4.5. one new thing that we included is the leaderboard that will allow you to check who are the world leaders in Assassin's Creed Recollection and also where you stand. As of now, ThePollinator is #1, go check where you are and while you're at it, challenge ThePollinator into a versus match.

ezio Auditore, Assassin - for 10, 5/5 threat firce who kills a card when played. Yes, assassin card.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze, for 5, a 5/5 but you are no longer allowed to play templar cards. An assassin card obviously. Awesome in combo with Machiavelli.

For ratios in deck building, it depends of the deck. Sadly,no formula there. I just try my decks against the 4 last decks ofthe AI to check if they run well.

The Militia deck I proposed is short on +1 ressources cards, butif you try it, you'll seethat you don't need them at all. Inthe other hand, the control deck has a lot of expensive cards, activation costs etc to pay, and so, I added a lot of ressources solutions. That's just common sence when you're a little used to cardgames. ^^

@Ategow: nice deck! I'd rather not play Knowledge as a Price when I still can play Plentifull Crop. Against a good rush, you'll never get the time to play 2 Royal Interventions http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

I know Christmas is the time for scrooge but this is ridiculous. We are not winning actual money here, they are virtual cards!! Let's face it, the best cards are there, and once you have opened 30 cheap boosters you have ten copies of all the crap.

And a credit cap at 18 games per day? Stingy on the credits and then a cap on play time? That is beyond ridiculous and into lunacy. Yes, we don't want people to go nuts and win maybe 400 credits per day. Where would they spend it all?

There is also no point to xp. I am at level 20 and didn't gain a single card for it.

Is there any chance of getting this addressed? Will anybody at Ubi defend this? (And hopefully not just with a) "We think it's a good business choice" or b) "You can choose not to play")

Does anybody else remember reading this about Uplay?

Uplay does NOT require a constant connection; you can earn rewards while playing offline. You will however need to connect to Uplay to update your profile with newly earned actions and redeem rewards.

Uplay is a totally optional service and while choosing not to participate means you could miss out on some great free extra content it will not impact on your overall game experience.

You need to have a Uplay account and be signed in to get new cards. Getting new cards is hardly optional. An explanation would be nice, but mostly unnecessary as the hypocrisy is so obvious. Please change the game so that you do not need a Uplay account, or change the description of Uplay so that it is accurate. Here's a suggested version.


Uplay requires a connection at some times. You can earn rewards while playing offline up to a point. For some games you will need to connect to Uplay in order to make further progress. You will also need to connect to Uplay to update your profile with newly earned actions and redeem rewards.

Uplay is required for some games. The above may be changed at any time without notice.

The Tanking is base on XP no? So the more you play the higher you are.

You need some kind of ELO Score to have a real Ranking.

ATM many ppl have limited carddpools, becuase there is no auction house so we need to tait a bit to see the strategies evolve. Im pretty sure many ppl have nice idea, that they cant try out because they miss the cards.

Midrange Deck seem very powerfull in this game. Control deck risk vetting overrun, outpowered or facing a combo deck. Thats why I think blue/green is the best for control. Green obious for the draw and blue has cesare/Forced Inheritance, and can stop alot of cards before they resolve.

Yea. It's crazy. I played him 4 times in a row that day back to back. I won the 1st 2. Then the last 2 he won. 1 of the wins of course was through that impending card.

I don't play that style, so I guess I'll never learn the trick. Is it possible you can share what exactly is going on? I am confused. I've also noticed the more coin you have, the more faster your cards attack, non surprise actions suddenly become "surprise" actions.

What is going on here? Lol. Please do explain.
I would be grateful if Ubi dropped a fundamentals e-guide that explains these things, regarding how coin speeds up the development of card resolve onto the board.

1) exactly at what level of coin buffs card speed resolve?

2) upto how many cards can you hold in your hand (I've held upto 9 cards at one point because I did not have the sufficient coin to play them)

Kimberly1979

Your attacks and spells take half a day to be cast and to resolve all game long. This never changes even with 100 ressources.

But there is a site, golden one, played by Gamemecanics, that makes all actions surprises. Your actions, and his actions.

This way, he can play his combo really fast, and destroy the whole board with no chances of retaliation.

He's just playing Impending Pandemic to fill your hand with your sites and Agents, followed by Doomsday, a Faith action that forces you to discard your whole hand.

That's a good combo, quite radical and hard to recover from. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The golden site that makes all actions surprises is called Monteriggioni cost 6 influence 2.

Btw, I noticed that you guys are calling green expertise: Engineer but mine is called Scholar in-game. Similarly with Royal Intervention which you guys call King's Intervention. My region setting is US btw.

I decided to speed up my Royal Intervention deck by just focusing on the combos. It feels more consistent but still prone to income starvation. Removed everything that costs 7 or more.

It's more consistent and faster yet less fun to play. I think I'm done with it soon and move on to another deck.

Royal Blitz

Income:
3x Plentiful Crop
2x Knowledge Has A Price
2x Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained: cost 1, you and opponent +4 income
5x Knowledge is Power
5x Forced Inheritance
2x Pilfer Supplies : regain all gold (I think I want 1-2 more of these)

Tutors & Card Drawers:
5x Quick Study
4x In-depth Analysis -> the 5th slows down the deck
1x Devoted Scholar: draw 1, discard 1 (may want more of these)

Control:
5x Court Order: counter spell..
1x Lassitude: all agents power becomes 0 (testing).
1x Tactical Upheaval (stand-in for Pilfer supplies for now)

Combos:
3x Royal Intervention: get 1 score for each gold spent
2x Pantheon : resets score to 0, controlling this region wins the game

Play 2xRI or play Pantheon then RI on it.

Sites:
5x Lair of Romulus
2x San Gimignano cost 5, infl 8: all your regions scores reset to 0
2x Monteriggioni : all actions are surprises

Le.Rancord
12-15-2011, 01:28 PM
Quick Study is kinda expensive and slow.
Im not such a big fan of it, especially not 5 pieces.

Torre Grossa is quit a nice income Booster. Knowledge has a price is uber risky.

Also the rest seems a bit random. Leonardo da vinci or Cesare are way better finishers.

So my suggestions for the deck would be:

Income:
5x Knowlege is Power
5x Force Inheritance
5x Torre Grossa
3x Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained
2x Pilfer Supplies

Card Draw:
5x In-Depth Analysis

Control:
5x Court Order
3x Ultimate End
2x Royal Decree
3x Lassitude

Threats:
5x Leonardo Da Vinci
2x Cesare Borgia
3x Royal Intervention



And This is my deck:

Income:
5x Plentiful Crop (Gold)
5x Knowledge is Power (Green)
2x Venitian Church (Red)

Cheap Sites:
5x Great Library (Green)
5x Roman Temple Ruins (Red)
5x Quit Chapel (Red)

Card Draw:
5x Field Study (Green)
2x In Depth Analysis (Green)

Threats:
5x Pontificial High Mass (Red)
3x Judgment Day (Red)

Control:
5x Roma, Vaticano District (Red)
3x Wrath of Righteous (Red)

I would say your version of Royal Intervention rely more on multiple threats than just the combos as opposed to mine which a lot more combo focused. For my version I do need Quick Study to pick up the finisher cards. I think for 3 gold, it's well priced, not too expensive nor cheap.

Torre Grossa costs 2/+2 which is good but I need faster income generator, hence Plentiful Crop and Knowledge has a price. KHAP nets your opponent an extra card but it's fine at the start since he wouldn't have enough gold anyway.


Originally posted by Le.Rancord:

Given the metagame, there are way too many agent removals I think. Sites usually survive better at current environment.

Monteriggioni is great to speed up the deck since it's mostly actions.

The big sites are used to gain control of a region ideally a previous opponent controlled. Stack 2 of them and watch opponent score zip to 0. With 1 region locked down, you only need 1 RI to win.

So the blitz can go like these, after ramping up to at least 12 gold,
1. if I already control a region from big sites, easy.. just launch RI to other region
2. if I have 2 RIs, launch one, pilfer supplies, launch the other. If Monteriggioni is not there, they are prone to counters (court order and scientific espionage). No action slot to counter the counter.
3. if I have 1 RI and 1 Pantheon, wait until at least 12 gold, drop Pantheon on region with lowest opponent score, you have 9 gold, wait a bit to 12 gold then cast RI on top of pantheon. Once the pantheon resolves, your RI should resolve in few moments -> insta win. This also leaves 2nd action slot open for counters.

Another thing is that your is more of controlling while my version is more for rushing. Unfortunately, I don't have Leonardo and only 1 Lassitude to build this version. I do want more Lassitudes for my version though.

I had site-based deck using Faith/Red with 2 Judgment Day. I find it kinda slow and I actually find Papal Blessing cost 5: +5 score is better. You just need to score 5 in each region and use it to top them off to 10.

Judgement day is prone to both site and action removal. Unless you time it to resolve right before new day, if the site is removed, it is wasted.

Royal Blitz has a problem.
Te current format is made by 90% of Blue/Green decks with the same basic cards. Court Order is quite frequent in these decks and if they counter the Royal Intervention, you're just doomed.

The Faith site rush is too vulnerable to Antonio and discard power. I'm still playing mine (with Engineer's workroom btw, to be sure to have 2 Vatican up early game) but it's neither awesome nor fun.

Yep, as in the case with any deck that focus on big finishers/combo, e.g. Femme Fatale. More Monteriggioni's will alleviate that problem but I only have 2 :/ It did survive 1 court orders before though.

After the novelty wears off (got Pantheon and discovered the combo with RI just 2 days ago), it's not that interesting to play though.. Looking at other ideas soon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

- 5 Calling all stand ins

- 5 Exit stage right

That's the core of the deck.
And I've added to it:

- 5 Royal Interventions
- 2 Carnivale

I find jundgment superb, also zu reduce the enemy score in a region. I used Papal Influence before. Im not playing a Midrange Version, thats why I use so much draw and crop income booster. If u want an early finishing deck, u will add papal and the abillity that boosts a site for 2 and remove some of the more expensive cards I added.

With the current version im no a win streak though, where the old lost me from time to time.

I still think if ranking is only xp based, mass players will allways be higher than others. I play around 3-4 games a day wich is 300-400XP. If you play 15 games *for the full credit cap* even if u loose 50% u will gain around 800 XP.

Also game crashes very often after pressing continue on victory, and then u not even get a win. Same is that u some times get the message: "Maximum XP for that day" but it was ure 2nd game.

I got this message randomly too. Sometimes, I gain exp the game before and the game after it.

The current leaderboard is lame. I don't get why they have a leaderboard based on the number of games played (and a little on the win/loss ratio), and at the same time, an exp limit per day and a bugguy one).

It's like saying "we want you to play as much as possible guys, but not too much!". I love GabeBot messages about it.

The info I have is that 3 wins = 100points, another 5 = another 100, and a final 100 for 15 wins...

But to be honest I'm not sure how they're counting the day - whether it resets at some specific hour, or if it counts 24 hours before your last win or...

*** Da Vinci Deck ***

here is the 2.0. Version of this very good deck I use frequently. It's strong, stable, and it can win against all decks. It's not a cheap one sadly.
As requested, I'll go in detail with this deck list to be sure nobody's left behind.



* Win condition
- 5 Leonardo's Workshop
(site; cost 5; 1 influence; each time you draw a memory, gain 1 score)
- 3 Leonardo Da Vinci
(agent; cost 10; 5/5; cunning & fierce; draw 2 cards when played)

If you don't have the 5 workshop (like me), you can play Merchant's Guild instead, or add a few Engineer's Workshop to the deck.

This win condition is simple. The more you draw, the more you win. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

* the drawing power
- 5 Knowledge is power
(action; cost 1; +1; draw a memory)
- 5 In-deapth analysis
(action; cost 6; +1; draw 3 memories)
- 4 Daring Experiment
(action; cost 2x+2; draw X memories)

Don't wait for the sites to be played to draw your cards. If you don't draw well enough, you won't be able to keep up with the game.

Of course, the automatic draw phase and the 2 cards given by Leonardo are also a part of this "drawing power".

* ressources manipulation
- 5 Pilfer supplies
(surprise; cost 3; regain all your ressources)
- 5 Honest worker
(agent; cost 3; +1; 1/1; activate to gain 3 ressources)
- 4 Political Patronage
(surprise; cost 0; +1; gain 3 ressources)
- 3 Dama Rossa
(agent; cost 0; +2; 0/1; courtesan)

You can also play plentifull Crop if you want. Be sure to use the Pilfer Supplies to draw cards (unless you have no other choice).

* control
- 2 Quick study
(action; cost 3; search your sequence for a memory)
- 2 Wanted posters
(action; cost 7; +1; all agents gains +o/-4)
- 4 Lassitude
(action; cost 5; all agents have 0 power)
- 2 scientific Espionnage
(surprise; cost 4; counter target action and put it in your hand)

So this part is pretty clear. It's all about Agent control helped with the Quick Study to draw solutions when needed.
If you face another control deck, be sure to search for the Scientific Espionage instead, and to use them ONLY on their winning conditions (judgment day, royal intervention, papal influence).

That's all folks.
Again, feel free to use, criticise, steal, tweak, test and ask as many questions as you want.

- 3 Leonardo Da Vinci
(agent; cost 10; 5/5; cunning & fierce; draw 2 cards when played)

If you don't have the 5 workshop (like me), you can play Merchant's Guild instead, or add a few Engineer's Workshop to the deck.

This win condition is simple. The more you draw, the more you win. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

* the drawing power
- 5 Knowledge is power
(action; cost 1; +1; draw a memory)
- 5 In-deapth analysis

I am having a ROUGH time in the single player campaign. I get my butt kicked in Roma every time. The combinations of Lanz and La Volpe mean that the AI has a winning score in 2/3 of the regions before I'm hardly on the board.

Basic tips or strategies that worked for you in this match up would be much appreciated!

Kimberly1979
12-19-2011, 02:50 PM
Yep, hard one to play. I lost a few times too.

In his deck, you will find only thieves. Most of them have 1 or 2 health, only Russo has 4. But Lanz can increase this when he attacks.

Rebuild your deck, remove everything that is site control (he only has 4 Assassin Guild that you can just ignore). And add everything that is fighting related, that can bounce his thieves back in his hand, kill them, or avoid your creatures to die. Just play a few sites with 2 influences (6 would be perfect) in your deck to negate his. You won't be able to save them anyway, so focus on the Agents.

After this, try to rush. Play officials and focus on getting score on one region while you are slowing him with your Doctors.

Keep your strongest cards for the thieves who boost the other ones. Avoid defense, because most of them have threat.

And that's it. You just need to play it a few times in theory.

Hello Assassins!

Here are some answers to your questions:

Matchmaking: We’re currently working on a better matchmaking system to create a proper ranking for Multiplayer and prepare for a stable tournament structure.
This requires we migrate the matchmaking on our server which will take a few weeks.

More single player: In the next update, you will find 10 new single player challenges which will allow you to gain (many) more credits… if you’re even able to overcome these unfair Opponents. These Challenges are for advanced players and will take a lot more time to complete.

Bugs & crashes: As always, we are doing our best to improve the stability of the game and offer all players a better playing experience.

Forums: We should soon be able to offer a proper platform to meet other players, discuss strategies and discover the upcoming updates. It will be advertised in the next update so that the whole community can gather at the same place.

Thank you all for your patience and comments, they are important to help us improve the game.

Hello Guys,
here is one of the decks I had the most success with.

I might have some names wrong, I have the french version.

- 3 Paola 0/+1 0/1 2: target region gets -2
- 5 discreet call 1/+1 search thief/mercenary
- 5 knowledge is power 1/+1 draw 1
- 2 forced charity 2/+2 draw 1
- 3 Amerigo vespucci 3/+1 0/5 cunning/recover
- 2 quick study 3/+0 search a card
- 3 Venezia, San polo district 4/+0 inf. 1 destroy opponent site
- 4 Malfatto 4/+0 2/3 3 (quick) put one of your agent in your hand
- 2 scientific spying 4/+0 (quick) neutralises action being launched, put it in your hand
- 2 Mario Auditore 5/+0 2/2 neutralises target agent
- 2 Fabio Orsini 5/+0 2/4 other agents get -1/-1
- 3 assassin's guild 5/+0 inf. 2 neutralises the most expensive opponent agent
- 3 Guivanni Auditor 5/+0 neutralises site
- 3 academy of physics 5/+1 inf. 1 3http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gifut target site you control in your hand
- 2 in depth analysis 6/+1 draw 3
- 5 Leonardo Da Vinci 10/+0 5/5 draw2 / cunning, (féroce?)
- 1 training on target? 12/+0 neutralises all opponent agents

This deck has an answer to almost everything.
academy of physics alows you to bounce assassin's guild or venezia to control the board, as well as malfatto doing the same for mario/Giovani auditore.

Leonardo is a real powerhouse, it can block anything and score points in the region and lets you draw a ton of cards if you can bounce it.

I'll hope ot will inspire some of you.

I hope the developers also take in account the single player fan base and release more story missions or AI skirmishes and that you can earn credit in single player too just for the sake of collecting the cool cards.

I like this game its single player campaign but online is hell for me. I'm a casual player and I don't have time to do mathematics and spend hours of making a super balanced deck. I have tried like 50 matches online and I've won only twice. I'm still surprised my iPad didn't smash into a wall. Lol. Yet I completed most of every story mission on first or second attempt. So I hope ubi does cater to the more casual public too....

Tried to build many decks like yours. I love the synergies proposed by Scholars and Crime cards. Leonardo is one of the best (Borgia & Ezio are here too for the title ^^).

But it has two issues I don't like:
- slow as hell, even with Forced Charity, Paola and Knowledge is Power. No Vespigo against a good rush and it's done.
- hard on ressources early.

Rosa Fiore is a good Income booster as well, but also looses u a card.

Many Control player keep a hand that have 2-3 income booster 1 draw and one board control card. So if u play red, Divine Intervention/Misterious Stranger/Silvio should give u an edge over them.

IM still having Problems with Media. They have some nice control cards and Political Patronage, but Political seems also a card for faster decks, and except the militants I see not much room.

The msot annoying card I find is Court Order. I need to be aware, and check his income and his card in hands to not run into a trap.

And well if enemy plays Royal Decree or Animus Reboot, im usually done. But its intresting how very few ppl chose to play mass destruction.

A Tipp because so many players do that wrong, is the propper use of your single Destruction. Since I play a Site deck, id specificly talk about the golden single Site destructor:
-If you play a fast deck, the only Site you want to target is Vatticano District or one that I judgmented for big points to push your score to 0 in a region.
-If you play a slow deck, the card should not be in your deck. If its still in your deck, you only want it to use it ona a Judgmented Site, on a a region that I am about to win on the enxt new day *of course if u are sure the card resolves before* and Vatticano District when you are playing allys.

I know it has been brought up before, but what is the point of leveling up? I play people that are WAY out of my league (yes, I'm looking at you odion and bronto) and I think it would be better to play people closer to my level. Also, why aren't there perks for leveling? This is what I propose:

1 common booster every level except level 5,15,25 etc would get an uncommon and levels 10,20,30 would get a rare. Thoughts?

when I first brought the game I paid for two sets of 2750 credits, since then I have paid maybe 4 or 5 more times, always for the 2750 credits spread over the weeks. The first few times I did nothing but assassin packs, I got lucky with a few nice cards and since then I have been opening 27 templar packs each time for some paddage, you still get some pretty nice stuff which is usefull (the golds and reds etc) I think I have enough cards now to be competative and to experiment with decks. I will now wait for the auction house before doing any more as I think I will be better placed to buy credits and spend them on individual cards that I need rather than take the lottery on getting them with packs which will presumably save me a lot in the long run

I have spent far too much to still not have at least 1 of every card. Over $100 so far and I fear I have not stopped yet. I stopped buying PC games several years ago because I used to baulk at the $60.00 price tag and yet here I am willing to spend twice this on a single game that makes me feel like I should be getting paid to play it as a tester because it's so buggy, has no options available for me to do anything with the excess cards I have, I still do not have the set, online play is sporadic at best, and the list goes on and on.

And to think $60.00 on a pc game I was not left with only part of the game but the whole thing.

I think it depends on the individual and his/her taste/preferences.

It does not mean that if I spend a great deal of money on a game, I get the 'fun and satisfaction' I 'deserve'; likewise some games are cheap/free and yet I get hours of fun of it.

Comparatively speaking though, AC is priced relatively much higher than Shadow Era. For $50, you can get all the cards in SE, 4 copies of each card. (The limit in each deck is 4 in SE)

Like many, I am waiting for the AC Auction House. How will it work? I am eager to get rid of my 30 Gallows! I don't mind if "House" is willing to pay me measly for them; something is better than nothing.

Right now; it's very difficult (for me at least) to build a top tier deck - of cos, I am still experimenting: into my 3rd day.

What I like about SE: it allows me to get any card I want; as long as I have the $$$ for it. This allows me to build any deck I want - I like theorycrafting and deck-building - but I cannot do so if I don't have all the cards I need.

Love the game thus far - I see a lot of future in this game.

Annoying.

Got all the cards except one !!! Ezio (the crime one)

What counter are you using? Surprise actions (like untimely... Something) does kill off agents with action triggered when launching, for me anyway. It's when you kill agents with a non-surprise action that their effect will trigger first, then they'll die.

This is a known bug as acknowledged by a developer. It supposed to be fixed, but it isn't. It makes agents with on-resolve abilities un-counterable.

I've been using iTunes gift cards for IAP since there was 15% off sale last week. Redeem them on your account and next time you buy IAP, it should deduct the amount accordingly.

The game is initiative.

If it tells you that your deck is invalid, it means that it does not comply with the rules.

Some basic rules:

1. 50 cards minimum in a deck
2. Only 2 colors/expertise max allowed in a deck, i.e Red/Green, Black/Green

- Gold is not considered. They can considered to be common pool and can be added to any decks, ,i.e, Red/Green/Gold, Black/Green/Gold.

I don't have the decklist since I don't have my iPad with me, but I've been experimenting with a Red/Green site deck based on Master Engineer ( 4/+0 1/3 When a site is replaced it gets +2)and on a lesser note Gaspar de La Croix (4/+0 3/1 If a Site or Agent is replaced put it in its controller's hand instead of the archive).

The idea is to pump cheap sites by replacing them while Master Engineer (or 2) is out. You have 5 of the church that goes back to your hand when replaced. After a while you play Gaspar and get back to your hand your replaced sites while gaining the +2 bonus.

I've been tweaking it a lot, so I don't have a final deck list anyway. When it works, it's beautiful, however it's not that consistent. It handily beats rush pretty much 100% of the time without needing much agent removal other than 3 of the ones that make their attack 0. I rely on that Vatican site that doesn't let agents campaing for that and Engineer Workroom to tutor for it. Who knew sites were considerably faster than rush? I usually end up losing to other site decks though. They seem much faster and my anti control cards (Scientifi Espionage for example, seem useless here).

I'll keep tinkering on it, but I'd love to hear some of your ideas.

God I loose only to blue. Blue is so strong, income boost counters and cesare.

A deck using an agent to boost site/combo is really risky. Because usually enemies have answer against one of the 2 for sure. Even bad decks. So without counter backup ure combo will be teared apart.

BTW Crazy, u play blue/green as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Though I find Animus Reboot not that good. Without other surprise cards or a deck that is fast enough blue/green is actually to strong.

Cept play monterigino, if he counters it, his actions are no more surprise http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I posted this in another forum and got confirmation from other players so I thought I'd post it here. It's about bugs in the game:

"There seems to be a bug with Lorenzo De' Medici (the 10 cost purple agent). It's supposed to get +5/+5 when you have 20 income, but I've gotten to 20 many different times (with him already out, casting it later, getting him through Exit Stage Right, etc) and I've never gotten the bonus. Anyone manage to get it?

Also, I'm not 100% sure on this one, but the blue site that protects your agents and sites from crime, seems to protect against everything. I played an Animus Reboot (which is gold), it resolved and had no effect (I could have missed a counter there, but I don't think so). Anyone noticed this? "

Both were confirmed by other players. Also the game exits to home screen during a match sometimes when you play a tutor. The framerate always grinds to a halt and becomes very unresponsive. A new way to choose tutored cards might be in order. For starters don't display every copy of a card, a number next to it telling you how many are in the deck will more than suffice.

I can confirm that Plazzo Senatoro (Rare Blue site, 4 gold, 1 influence) provides many additional effects in addition to the stated "crime actions cannot neutralize or damage your agents or sites".

Appears to prevent any action since my Animus Reboot(gold action) always affects my opponent's agents and sites but leaves my own (does still reset my scores to 3). Also believe I have seen it stop my oppenents Mob Justice (gold) and some of their launching agent affects that should have neutralize my agent or site.

Also appears to prevent beneficial changes from affecting my sites. Definitely the +2 from Pontifical Highmass (Red) and pretty sure the +2 from Seeking Sancturay (Red).

Ive seen a 10/10 Lorenzo die Medici, still in launching state though.

Also I had a problem, that I couldnt use Court Order on some launching cards. It just stayed grey. The card was an ordinary vanilla Agent and the sites he had out didnt state an effect. Is it possible that the target agent is safe card, can be cast on launching agents to prevent counters?

drazel7
12-28-2011, 02:33 AM
I had the problem with Lorenzo, I figured out that you need to have 20 income when it hits the board, he does not get the +5/+5 if you get 20 income later.

There is a real problem with the tutors, I had the case where I could not find "in-depth analysis" in my sequence when playing "quick study" (they were not in the archive, nor erased) I just don't know what happened to them :/

There is a thread for Recollection bugs : here (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&f=5251069024&m=9531018079&r=4191043279#4191043279)

well done ubisoft, you have managed to force everyone who wants to talk about this game into other forums, now the information is sporadicly distributed accross the web. You havnt bothered to actually address any issues such as the forum, the auction house, the bugs or even a mini site detailing the cards available. You have basically made all of your customers do the hard work for you.

this isnt a rant to say I wont be playing any more because I actually love the game. This is a rant to congratulate you on being able to hold on to your customers even though you are doing diddly squat to keep them.

great femme fatale deck, i stupidly counter montereggio, and cant counter Femme fatale since all my coutners are no more surprise http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif


Anyway since long time no deck, I post my new deck:

4x Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained
3x Faux-Pas
5x Knowledge is Power

5x Forced Inheritance
3x Royal Intervention
3x Ultimely End

3x Quick Study

5x Court Order

2x Under Arrest

5x Ultimative Strike
4x In-Depth Analysis

3x Royal Decree

3x Cesare Borgia
2x Leonardo da Vinci


Since this is a control deck you need to be very smart when to use what. Constantly check ure enemies hand size. If its low you can usally just pump out threats, since he cant answer them all and you can counter his draw pwoer threats.

Dont be fooled, if you can handle the cards easily there is no need to counter. Faux-Pas you allways use and allmost never think about if its worth countering the enemy card. Nothing ventured nothing gained is a risky card. I might reduce to 3 copies. Usually, if u have force inheritance and ure enem doesnt seem to play a rush deck, you want to keep it. if im at 12 income and my enemy at 6 I want to keep it a while like this.

Dont sit at your cards in hand. He might have a counter to your in depth, but the longer you wait the more likly he is gonna drawthe counter anyway. If you have nothing to bait it out, then just play and hope.

If you have no counter vs action on hand, try to use roayl intervention to push enemy score down. The last you want is that he has one region u stabilize the game, and he takes the 2nd with papal or his own judgment.

**2 HORRIBLE GAME RUINING BUGSSSSS - PLEASE FIX**

1) I have been robbed of several games with the following bug.
It is regarding me casting a "Change of Plans" while a opponents que is full with 6 agents and my que only 3 - 4 agents. More than enough space to accommodate more agents. What ends up happening, my "Change of Plans" resolves, but never brings over the agent I persuaded.

This has happened to me several times when a opponent has a que full of 6 agents, my change of plans seems to fail during these full que moments. Please fix.

2) The game crash and closes out "after" I win a game.
This is now happening 3 times out of every 10 to 12 games I play. I then end up not getting my xp, I must have lost at least 1300 points already. Please fix.

I am using a 1st generation iPad. Thanks.
