'Scaper of the Month - May 2018

Posted May 10th, 2018 at 04:38 AM by HS Codex

íScaper of the Month
Author: The Grim Reaperís Friend

To be honest, I always love it when one of our íScapers of the Month incorporates some humor into their interview. I feel like it adds some personality to the replies you donít get if youíre completely serious. I had fun with Roninís interview for that reason. Ronin has been working with us in the Codex for some time now, consistently supplying us with high-quality C3G Strategy articles, so I was excited to learn more about him.


Who are you really?
Nate Hutchings. Not much of a reveal unless you happen to know me both here and in real life, and never put two and two together.

How old are you?
Twenty-four, in people years.

What is your occupation?
Software engineerómainly working in software testing.

Author: BiggaBullfrog

Due to some complications, itís been a few months since our last article, but weíre coming back at you now with a new map spotlight! This time, we go back to an excellent entry to our Wilds of Valhalla contest: Robberís Volcarren Paradise.

(This download is an updated version to allow placement of the Marro Hive in the Start Zone.)

Map Bio:
There is a relatively new volcanic island off the coast of the Volcarren Wasteland. Lush tropical terrain covers the surface, and vegetation and wildlife flourish.

The 16 Card Snake Draft Format for Classic/VC

Well met!

Some time ago, I devised a draft format for use with C3G. The plethora of figures available in the combined Classic/VC, and recent events, have revitalized my interest in this format.

The 16 Card Snake Draft Format.

Snake Draft.
It's a draft where the positions flip flop every round. For example, if someone drafts first during the very first round, they'll draft last the following round, then they'll draft first again in the next round, and so on.

So, with 4 players drafting 1 card at a time, the order would be: 1234432112344321. Each player ends up with 4 cards (out of 16).

Of course, there are an infinite number of ways to choose those 16 cards. Some totally subjective, current principles:

1. Select a map.

2. Select 4 sets of 4 cards each. Make it so that all cards in a set are of roughly equal value. The Book
