Ever wonder what the Hero Academy army compositions were? Jake and I sat down and determined the contents of the Hero Academy decks.
Each Army consists of:
3x Void Monk
2x Mana Vial
2x Soul Harvest
Dwarves (edit 2/24/2012 for Dwarves)
2x Dwarven Brew
2x The Pulverizer
Tribe (edit 4/8/2012 for Tribe)
3x Axe Thrower
4x Spike Armor
4x Haunch of Meat
This information can be useful when you're deciding how aggressive to be. The problem is that the game doesn't provide any built-in log. What's a person to do? Keeping a separate log of the game state of every game seems like too much work, but at the same time, knowing that your enemy has used up both Scrolls and both Inferno's can be extremely valuable tactical information.
Ideally, Robot would add some sort of combat log or a Deck Contents viewer to the side, but in the meantime I've been using the chat log as a makeshift recorder of important events. In particular I want to track my opponent's scrolls and fireballs. The chat log is integrated, attached to each game, and always available. To be sneaky though, I've been disguising my log as friendly messages to my opponent. Ha ha! Check out these screens:
As you can see, my combat log of my opponent's specials are cleverly disguised as congratulatory messages!
On a serious note though, if you're in a game with me and you've read this, we can just start recording important events and not make a big fuss.
