Hello everyone! Before we get into this week's updates, I've gotten a lot (ALOT x__x) of e-mails/PMs this week regarding some unspoken rules in the TCG that I'd like to clarify for all traders. Naturally a lot of you are worried about system exploitation because of the competitive nature of the TCG, and I understand that. Please keep these things in mind--now that they have been addressed to all traders, I will be enforcing these rules strictly:

Update freebies are only free for that week's update.
Please don't go back to previous updates that you missed and take cards. They are WEEKLY freebies and expire once the next update goes up. If you missed the update, you also missed the freebies. You need to leave a comment on the post so that I know the freebies you've taken are legitimate (and not taken after the update has passed).

You CANNOT trade Jump Points.
This is actually my fault because I failed to address it when we switched currencies, but Jump Points work like a traditional TCG currency and are non-tradable. If you have traded points already, I'm not going to police you and ask you to undo the trade, but please don't trade points anymore in the future.

New Members: Dohma, welcome to the family of Champions! :3

Masteries: AllSunday (Lethe), Bossun (Kibumie), Cloud (Kula), Dorobou (Lethe), Lucky Item (Kibumie)

Level Ups: (1→2) Becca, Jun, Imadokisan, Neo, Saku, Uyuki (2→3) Elysa, Kula, Lethe

New Decks: A normal amount of new decks this week! A couple donations, and me trying to get our laughter decks caught up with the other traits. xD

Everyone is welcome to take 3 cards from the decks above, no more than 1 per deck. Leave a comment with what you've taken, and do not take any cards after this update has passed. If I see you have taken cards without commenting or taken cards after the cut-off date I will ask you to remove them.

Games: Weekly Games Set B are up at the Arcade! I also implemented Stamp Cards this week, so pick a card and get started trading! To keep it fair, only trades that happen during or after Sept. 11 will start to count. That way, every trader (new or old) is starting on stamp cards at equal footing.

Jump Shop: Our Labor Day sale will continue into this week, for those of you who were just on the edge of being able to buy koma. :) Related to some of the system exploitation we talked about above: koma at the Hero Shop now have a single price (40 points), so no need to worry about someone grabbing Luffy before you just because they paid for a cheaper koma!

Deck Builder: I want to apologize about last month's Deck Builder activity. I allowed traders to continue submitting pictures past 20 cards--thinking it would work with our randomizer to have random numbers of cards in a deck--it doesn't XD. Therefore, when I realized my mistake, I replaced some traders images when making the deck and not everyone's submitted image made it. I'm really sorry about that and hope that nobody took it personally--but as my apology for effing up, everyone who's participated in Deck Builder last month (Theme: Summer) can take the voucher below. In the future, I will be taking the first 20 images submitted, so that won't happen again. Sorry!

Phew! I think that's about it. In regards to last week's question (Can champions of a deck have both the champion badge & master badge?), I think the majority of traders who commented did not have a problem with it. There was an idea about asking traders to master it again to receive both badges. It's one that's come up a few times actually--but it's not something that I will allow because in my opinion, people who already mastered a deck they wanted and got the first mastery badge should let all the other traders who are still working on it collect the cards in circulation. If you have earned the Champion Badge and would like to display the Mastery badge as a separate entity on your trading post, you are welcome to do so. Hope you all have a great week, and happy trading!

Thanks for the update, Aku!

I love how you implement stamp cards AFTER I stopped keeping track of the amount of cards I trade...but, oh well, since they don't count anyway I'm not gonna worry.

Do I still get to take the coupon if my image DID get in the deck? I just want to make sure before I take it.

New Decks: bible08, bloodshot07, refreshing18

@Cami: There wasn't a reason to keep track of it before so it's not my fault! :P At least now you're practiced and ready for it!

Yes, you can take it, everyone who participated in last month's Deck Builder is welcome to the freebie.
by Aku @ 11 Sep 2014 02:14 am   

I'll take that too, then.

And keeping track of trades was just me being used to it from other TCGs. It took me a while to break out of the habit here and then removing the trade counts from my trade log...speaking of which, I'm just gonna archive my current trade log so I don't accidentally count them.

Thanks for all the work you put into Champion every week, Aku! <3 I've been wondering whether you'd be implementing stamp cards or not, haha. xD

I'm grabbing bible09, bloodshot20, refreshing08 from the new decks, thanks!
by Elysa @ 17 Sep 2014 04:08 pm   

Thanks for the update! And don't worry about sounding serious when rules have to be set, since I mean, we're a TCG NOT AN ANARCHIST COLLECTIVE. :p Also, I love the way you've done stamp cards, since there's an actual function to them, as I otherwise find them pretty tedious and blah. So, yay!
