After the great success of the 100 Tips series, I have been diligently at work producing new content geared at helping new players understand the often-confusing mechanics of the game. I talk about building great teams using simple cards that almost everybody has access to, I explore the Event system, Boosts, Traits, Budgeting Souls, and so much more.
I've been given a great deal of positive feedback in here, in chat, on Reddit, and elsewhere. As always I strive to improve everything I do so constructive feedback is appreciated.
Even though some aspects veer into platform-specific troops, I try very hard to keep everything to the underlying concepts. I also focus on revealing the mechanics to players instead of saying "do this do that" hopefully to empower them each according to their own play styles.
