ARV Maps - January 2019

Map Craft
Pre-set Glyphs
Author: By Sir Heroscape

Another installment of Map Craft coming your way! This time I’m taking you on a journey to the ever-difficult decision on whether to use pre-set glyphs on a map.

For starters, I’m not going to talk about the use of random power glyphs on a map, mainly because, for the most part, that’s the easy way out. Pre-set power glyphs show a map designer’s clear intent with the way they created the map and the way the game should be played with those glyphs in mind. Random glyphs are fine for a map that is fairly balanced and symmetrical and won’t be swayed much by one glyph or another. But, for maps—and mapmakers—that want to push the boundaries a little bit, pre-set power glyphs will help you to create and balance maps that, without those specific glyphs, likely wouldn’t be balanced at all. It’s

Customs Creation - January 2019

Customs Creation
Design Fundamentals
Author: Scytale

Articles on creating customs provide insight into many of the finer aspects of creating custom Heroscape units, a hobby that is far more intricate and challenging than it first appears. While these resources can be invaluable, their wisdom will likely fail you if you are not starting with a base of strong fundamentals. I’m talking about knowledge not only of the game and of the existing units, but of broad design patterns that emerge from looking at the official units as well as an understanding of the metagame. While this article is targeted at those new to custom creation, all of us can benefit from reviewing the fundamentals of custom design, including myself.

Different Heroscape units have different purposes. In my articles, I have repeatedly stressed the importance of understanding

C3G Strategy - January 2019

Posted January 16th, 2019 at 04:01 AM by HS Codex

C3G Strategy Guide
Speedy (Mia Dearden)
By: Lazy Orang


My second review of a low-cost, female archer, it seems. An odd little statistical anomaly given the volume of units in the game.

Analyzed Statistics

Left Box Breakdown
Species – Human (minor synergies, such as being healed by Alfred Pennyworth; also by far the most common species in C3G, making it somewhat clunky for Star-Lord builds)
Uniqueness – Unique Hero
Class – Sidekick (can be extracted by Alfred and get a bonus to his healing; also allows Speedy to team up with Aqualad and Spoiler as bonding options—as well as the other Speedy and Red Arrow, for purely attack bonding; has interactions with Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Superboy (Kon-El), Raven and Starfire;

C3G Interview - December 2018

Posted December 28th, 2018 at 04:04 AM by HS Codex

C3G Interview
Spidey’tilIDie
Author: LordEsenwienIV


Time once again to go back to a classic interview with C3G’s first fan, Spidey! Even though this one originally aired back on March 30th, 2011, it still feels pretty fresh. Enjoy.

What do you like most about being a C3G Hero?
I really enjoy the chance to take characters I have loved for years and attempt to translate them to a game that I am really still learning. Honestly, I think Griff, Hahma, and Bats are three of the best players out there. I am amazed at how they continually find ways to put designs into interesting conundrums to first break them, and then figure out a way to keep the idea and also fix them. I really do love comics. I sometimes wonder if I come off as a know-it-all when I post info; believe me, that is not my intent. My family says I am the King of
