Top 5 favorite C3G designs?
(Here's 4 in no particular order)
-Jason
-Captain America
-Prof X
-All the ninja turtles

What 2 characters would you like to see represented that have yet to be made/released?
-John Constantine
-Sentry

What 2 characters that have been made would you like to see a new version of?
-I think it'd be nice to have versions of the Fan4 that weren't so synergy heavy
-Falcon

What C3G design do you think needs a point bump?
-Cosmic Boy? Nobody else seems to have a problem with him, but he steamrolls a lot of the games I put him in.

What C3G design do you think needs a point decrease?
-Zod

What C3G design do you think needs re-evaluated power wise(buff or nerf)?
-Zod

What is your favorite faction/synergy to use in C3G?
-Titans, Justice League, and recently the Runaways

What faction/synergy not yet represented in C3G would you like to see made?
-Young Warriors and Doom Patrol

What faction/synergy in C3G would you like to see receive expansion?

What glyph, spell, or Destructible Objects would you like to see?
-Just more regular non-equipment glyphs

As far as releases go, do you prefer bigger quarterly releases throughout the year, or smaller monthly releases?
-Monthly

-Just to edit this in, I think the underwater rules I saw discussed would be a really fun new direction. Water characters get a new lease on life, and think of all the new units; Atlanteans, Hydro Suit Iron Man, Glyph of Utility: Rebreather...

  1. Top 5 favorite C3G designs?

    In no particular order and with complete bias due to my involvement with them ....

    Anti-Monitor
    Oracle
    Professor X
    Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
    Martian Manhunter (I) Forgot about C3G Captain America. Sorry, MM!


  2. What 2 characters would you like to see represented that have yet to be made/released?

    Biggest two are probably Parallax and Metamorpho.

  3. What 2 characters that have been made would you like to see a new version of?

    Jessica Jones and Daredevil.

  4. What C3G design do you think needs a point bump?

    Robot.

  5. What C3G design do you think needs a point decrease?

    Ventriloquist, maybe?

  6. What C3G design do you think needs re-evaluated power wise(buff or nerf)?

    Nothing comes to mind.

  7. What is your favorite faction/synergy to use in C3G?

    Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Justice League. I like the traditional teams. Also Avengers with the Avenger markers.

  8. What faction/synergy not yet represented in C3G would you like to see made?

    I want to see the Outsiders fully developed. There's really no synergy yet, so I include it here.

  9. What faction/synergy in C3G would you like to see receive expansion?

    Justice League.

  10. What glyph, spell, or Destructible Objects would you like to see?

    Batmobile VDO once draftable VDOs are done.

    I like to go big.

  12. Is there anything else you'd like to see or would like to mention that has not been covered above?

    I want to make that Skyscraper happen. I need a floor plan to print!

    I also would love to see folks band together to do some mass printing. I need to get folks to buy into the value of going rectangular cards for this. They're the same shape as comic books are, folks! :-D

Heh. Yeah, yeah, it's OK. I don't have time to test the one or money to print/pay for either yet. I'm mostly just trying to keep them in the public consciousness. Seeing both those through (getting a full, updated set of cards and playable Skyscraper) are probably my biggest overall goals for myself with C3G right now, but I'm happy to be patient enough to see them through. :-D

Besides, I've really gotta get Tornado into art so I can ride his work through all this building stuff ....

I'm going to have him help me create cards...at least the editing since he's proofreading them for me.

I'm still thinking through my answers for these questions though...

Awesome! If there's ever anything I can do to help, please just let me know. :-) Best thing I can think of to do for you in the meantime is to build up the Outsiders/Titans.

But (bad habit lately) :hijacked: I want to see more answers here!

    Finding a way to release finished designs before years pass.

Before I start figuring out my answers to some of these questions, I wanted to address this. It's an issue we've talked about in-Sanctum but I don't know if there's been a lot of public talk about it yet.

You already know some of this, Lobs, but I don't think you were around for the conversations about the future direction for release planning (and also I wanted to throw this out there for the public members).

Right now we're still working on building up some grandiose plans. But after that, we're going to be shifting to a model where things are released sooner after being designed, without waiting as long On Deck. It's definitely one of our goals to reduce the number of designs that get stuck waiting for a release.

That's part of the reason we've started doing more public designs (with the other big one being to promote more public engagement).

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
  1. Top 5 favorite C3G designs?
    Spider-Man (Peter)
    Maxima
    Baron Zemo (Helmut)
    Star-Lord
    Kingpin (II)

    Probably different if you ask me next week, though.
  2. What 2 characters would you like to see represented that have yet to be made/released?
    Hobgoblin
    Deadman
  3. What 2 characters that have been made would you like to see a new version of?
    Red Hulk (leader version)
    Jessica Jones (investigator version)
  4. What C3G design do you think needs a point bump?
    Robot
  5. What C3G design do you think needs a point decrease?
    There are probably a few where you could resolve any issues with them by just dropping the price, but I'm kinda blanking. Usually I wouldn't want to do that before a figure has a developed synergy web.
  6. What C3G design do you think needs re-evaluated power wise(buff or nerf)?
    Mad Thinker
  7. What is your favorite faction/synergy to use in C3G?
    Avengers (super open-ended), JSA (really interesting two-tier synergy), X-Men (such a crazy rich faction to build around)
  8. What faction/synergy not yet represented in C3G would you like to see made?
    Black Order, Authority, Doom Patrol, Defenders, Outsiders, Alpha Flight, New Warriors

    (Some of those might have like, a member or two, but no real synergy implemented)
  9. What faction/synergy in C3G would you like to see receive expansion?
    Various Lantern Corps, Investigators, Lawmen, Hell Lords, JSA, Terrorists
  10. What glyph, spell, or Destructible Objects would you like to see?
    Batmobile, Release Soul, detective-themed Utility Glyphs
  11. As far as releases go, do you prefer bigger quarterly releases throughout the year, or smaller monthly releases?
    Well, my answer probably doesn't count for much because I have a pretty direct hand in release planning, but I prefer more frequent releases.
  12. Is there anything else you'd like to see or would like to mention that has not been covered above?
    Hmm. I'm game for anything Spider-Man-related people get up to.

    Also, deciduous trees. We could use some of those. Always struck me as odd that we don't have a middle ground between evergreens and jungle trees.

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
  1. Top 5 favorite C3G designs? Going to need to think on this one.
  2. What 2 characters would you like to see represented that have yet to be made/released? Vandal Savage, at least... there are tonnes of others, really, but a lot of them are outside the Marvel/DC area and sort of make for whole new settings/factions, so...
  3. What 2 characters that have been made would you like to see a new version of? That I've not got plans to run myself? Beast (more science/support based) and Winter Soldier (hero era rather than assassin era)
  4. What C3G design do you think needs a point bump? Punisher could probably use a slight bump - I've never had an issue with what he does, but he is one of the strongest figures and is a bit good for his price. I'd be happy just seeing him at 190 or 200, but I don't feel the need to press the point - while a tad underpriced, he's not hurting the game.
  5. What C3G design do you think needs a point decrease? Gambit - one of my favourite X-Men, but I never draft him because he feels overcosted. He's always felt like a 190 figure to me. Also Hellboy, but he may be better tackled with a vII.
  6. What C3G design do you think needs re-evaluated power wise(buff or nerf)? Judge Death (fairly major buff). Honestly, buff him and Zodd and I'm happy - those are the only ones that bother me.
  7. What is your favorite faction/synergy to use in C3G? Avengers, TMNT, Criminals (whether LexCorp, Kingpin (vII) or Gotham Underworld), S.H.I.E.L.D.
  8. What faction/synergy not yet represented in C3G would you like to see made? Gargoyles, Injustice League, Judges, Dinosaurs, Demons, Xenomorphs, Bounty Hunters, White Lanterns
  9. What faction/synergy in C3G would you like to see receive expansion? Young Avengers, Mercenaries, Terrorists, Scientists, Soldiers, Pirates, Lawmen, Red, Black, Blue, Indigo and Violet Lanterns, Undead
  10. What glyph, spell, or Destructible Objects would you like to see? Hmm... let me think on that one...
  11. As far as releases go, do you prefer bigger quarterly releases throughout the year, or smaller monthly releases? Not honestly that fussed, as long as we can get one proper wave a year.
  12. Is there anything else you'd like to see or would like to mention that has not been covered above? More representation of settings other than the Marvel and DC universes, Classicscape-style terrain packs, Partial Cover optional rules
Could I also suggest adding a question about what settings/IPs people would like to see more of/would like to see that aren't already represented?

Mutants used to be one of my favourite factions, and they're still pretty high up, but overuse and oversaturation has ticked them a tad down for me now.

IAmBatman August 22nd, 2018 01:42 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
Everyone on my top five is there because they tell a story about how we opened up new design ideas in the project.

Anti-Monitor helped us realize one figure could be an army and stay balanced against every type of figure (heavies, mid-levels, squads) and introduced a new type of uniqueness for a new type of character. He's still my favorite Event Hero, but I love even more that he helped make Event Heroes a possibility.

Oracle gave us a more or less all support figure that did her job with out straight up turn bonding, has the same level of game impact as she had thematic impact in the comics (IMO), and really opened up armies of non-bonding heroes who just want to be aggressive and attack and now have the backing and infrastructure not to be killed in the metagame as a result.

Professor X, of course, redefined how hero armies could be built. He was our first major faction hub in that way. Inspired directly by Valhalla's Ulginesh, he helped us create a game dynamic where you could create cohesive armies that weren't build around bonding common squads. This was a big design step forward for us, IMO.

Green Lantern really ushered in the age of marker usage and I'm really proud of the power battery mechanic that was created there and all of the interesting ways it's been used since.

And I'm super proud how we managed to do a Captain American that was distinct from and in so many ways more thematic and more interesting in army building than the official Captain America, whom we long held as the very pinnacle of that official set. He established the Avengers faction, but he also showed many of us (myself in particular) that we were capable of putting together designs just as solid as or in many cases eclipsing the official product that had been put out. He's one that helped us really come into our own, IMO.

I love the Mutants...I think they are a great introduction for newcomers...you can spend $25 and buy a bunch of Mutant figures with a few specific ones and build armies for days. And with all the transit from X-Men to Brotherhood to whatever other faction makes it even fit thematically...If we had a more Generically Mutant bonding Magneto that could match up with a Professor X army then you really could go all in on Mutants.

After that it's mostly DC for me except the MCU has really pulled me more to the Marvel side and I've enjoyed learning more of the histories of these characters through discovery while they were being designed.

Oh, yeah, don't get me wrong, they're a great faction, loads of fun to play and a great introduction to newcomers. It's because they're so good that they're most likely the army type I've played more than any other - and the fact that I've used them more than anything else is why I tend to prefer to go for something else when I can these days! :)

It's because they're so good that they're most likely the army type I've played more than any other - and the fact that I've used them more than anything else is why I tend to prefer to go for something else when I can these days! :)

Yeah I've essentially broken them out separated from my collections as practically a different game. I have Mutant Scape...and everything else. I have one whole box of just Mutants. And typically if we pull out that box...we all play Mutant or anti Mutant armies. I'm excited to expand the Anti-Mutant synergies.

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I picked those top 5 because I like the way they play. They are fun, and generally, you see pretty consistent results from them that are positive. I've had many games where they were the MVP of that respective game, or made the difference. They are also worth drafting in many armies.

I strive for all my designs to be that way and take lots of inspiration from that.

I've only been playing with C3G for a couple of months, so take my answers with that in mind.


Top 5 favorite C3G designs?

Jason Voorhees
Frankenstein
Hired Guns
Wrecking Crew (only played 3 games with them but really fun)
Firestar



What 2 characters would you like to see represented that have yet to be made/released?

The Sentry


What 2 characters that have been made would you like to see a new version of?

Thor - I'm surprised that their is only one version of him.

What C3G design do you think needs a point bump?

Firestar - only played 4 or 5 games with her but has always pulled down double her points.

Or Moon Knight


What C3G design do you think needs a point decrease?

Dr Octopus I

What C3G design do you think needs re-evaluated power wise(buff or nerf)?

Not Sure

What is your favorite faction/synergy to use in C3G?

X-men
Wrecking Crew
Surprisingly TMNTs


What faction/synergy not yet represented in C3G would you like to see made?

Inhumans

What faction/synergy in C3G would you like to see receive expansion?

?

What glyph, spell, or Destructible Objects would you like to see?

?

As far as releases go, do you prefer bigger quarterly releases throughout the year, or smaller monthly releases?

More often, Monthly sounds good to me

Is there anything else you'd like to see or would like to mention that has not been covered above?

It seems like there are so many different ideas bouncing around that some designs get pushed for a few days, then forgotten about, then another one for a few days. As someone new, it seems overwhelming at times to keep track of a new design.

This kind of feedback is really useful to the project, so thank you for your insight. Can I ask if you mean design ideas being posted in the Public Design Workshop, or do you mean full-on design threads like Squirrel Girl and the dinos?

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
@Scapemage I think it's more the nature of the beast. I think if you look at public design thread or personal threads the characters that get worked on bounce around so much for one character to another. At the same time I don't see another way to do it.

IAmBatman August 24th, 2018 07:43 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I think that if you want to really focus on one design, the best way is to split it out into a thread of its own.

Are Allies allowed to have Workshop threads?

Tornado August 24th, 2018 07:46 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I still have mine. Dredd verse. :)

Arkham August 24th, 2018 07:56 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
We make the rules so I see no reason why not.

Ronin August 24th, 2018 08:13 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I know when I was an Ally I was always trying not to step on anyone's toes or disrupt the current discussion, and I'd end up sitting on a lot of write-ups and not posting them. That's why I had such a huge backlog when I became a Sidekick. I wouldn't have any problem with Allies getting their own Workshop threads, to alleviate that kind of thing.

MrNobody August 24th, 2018 08:14 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
Could I make the suggestion that instead of an ally having their own thread (which I’m not against) that workshops can be created according to “themes?” Similar to Tornado’s Dreddverse workshop or the old Marvel Cosmic thread.

    In no particular order...
    Doctor Doom (C3G)
    Captain America (C3G)
    Graviton
    Two-Face (II)
    Huntress
  2. What 2 characters would you like to see represented that have yet to be made/released?
    Taskmaster
    Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau) (I think she's called Photon now but I only know her from earlier appearances)
  3. What 2 characters that have been made would you like to see a new version of?
    Black Panther
    Doctor Strange
  4. What C3G design do you think needs a point bump?
    Punisher
  5. What C3G design do you think needs a point decrease?

    Ronan has always felt underwhelming to me.
  7. What is your favorite faction/synergy to use in C3G?
    I like the Outcasts, regardless of how bad I am at using them.
  8. What faction/synergy not yet represented in C3G would you like to see made?
    Can't think of anything here.

    Alpha Flight

    I bet there's still plenty of design space for spells, but I don't know what would be particularly iconic.
  11. As far as releases go, do you prefer bigger quarterly releases throughout the year, or smaller monthly releases?
    Smaller monthly releases.
  12. Is there anything else you'd like to see or would like to mention that has not been covered above?
    Nope, other than to say that there are still a good number of units I haven't used, so my priorities for cards worth changing might not be the most critical for the project as a whole.

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I don't think I have a problem with Allies having a Workshop thread. They've worked hard to get to that point so if that is something the see as a value we should probably discuss and vote on it in the sanctum.

Xael Raymand August 25th, 2018 08:59 AM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
1. Top 5 favorite C3G designs?
Green Lantern Hal Jordan
Black Canary
Batman II
Professor X
Captain America (C3G)

This Changes on a regular basis but I feel these 5 added something new to the game that really has propelled C3G to where it is today.

2.What 2 characters would you like to see represented that have yet to be made/released?


Ugh only 2... Well I know some are in the pipeline so I'll avoid those but I would like to see.
Gladiator (Marvel) and Sauron

3.What 2 characters that have been made would you like to see a new version of?

Lex Luthor (A Legion of Doom Version), and Daredevil

4.What C3G design do you think needs a point bump?

Commander Rogers


5.What C3G design do you think needs a point decrease?

Ventriloquist but also Gambit (which I feel could then leave more room for a higher point Gambit II)

6.What C3G design do you think needs re-evaluated power wise(buff or nerf)?

General Zod he needs to be buffed



7.What is your favorite faction/synergy to use in C3G?

That's a tough one, right now I would say the Justice Society of America

8.What faction/synergy not yet represented in C3G would you like to see made?

Squadron Supreme/Sinister

9.What faction/synergy in C3G would you like to see receive expansion?

All of them....Ok fine Alpha Flight

10.What glyph, spell, or Destructible Objects would you like to see?

I'll always take more equipment glyphs for the Bat Family

11.As far as releases go, do you prefer bigger quarterly releases throughout the year, or smaller monthly releases?

That's a tough question, I feel like their should still be the bigger quarterly releases however to continue momentum and interest especially outside the sanctum I feel a release every month of 1-2 cards would be great. Which I know is the goal with the Public LD's and the LD's you can purchase but sometimes those take longer then expected. I would say just reducing the size of the quarterly releases, for instance if you normally release 8-12 cards every quarter, reduce that to 4-8 cards and have the other cards released one at a time once a month as a tease to the bigger quarterly release.


Of course may favorite time was the 12 days of Christmas release....


12.Is there anything else you'd like to see or would like to mention that has not been covered above?

Keep up the incredible work and anything that can help organize the actual forums I am for.

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
Great insight everyone! Thanks for chiming in All Your Pie and Xael Raymand! I wouldn't mind Allies having their own threads, so that would sort of kill the Public Design Workshop, so it's a give an take. We do a lot of faction workshop threads like what MrNobody is suggesting in-sanctum, so that could be the best solution.

Yodaking August 25th, 2018 06:04 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I'd rather see more specific themed workshop threads than every ally have their own design thread. I fear that would end the public design workshop thread and that has been going on for so long that it would be a shame to watch it die.

MrNobody August 25th, 2018 06:12 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I would happily cash in a few reward points to get a committed design thread for Doctor Who or something like that.

Yodaking August 25th, 2018 06:22 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I don't see why the Whoverse shouldn't get it's own workshop thread.

That's a good point and why I thought we needed to discuss it as I was sure we needed to fully thank it through.

Ronin August 25th, 2018 06:39 PM

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
I'd be fine with more themed workshops instead of Ally Workshops. Still serves the purpose of making it easier for more conversations to happen in parallel.

I was actually thinking the other day that it might be a good idea to roll some of the faction threads from the Sanctum into the public, since we're doing a lot of workshopping out here now anyway.

Re: 12 Questions to Help Shape Our Future
 
Speaking as an Ally, I don't personally feel that I need my own thread. I think the public one is fine for me and the addition of your threads being made public allows me to provide greater input and feedback and keeps me more inclined to visit the site on a regular basis which for me is great.

I would imagine that the allies who borderline need their own thread will eventually become sidekicks anyway and will then be eligible to have their own threads?

Lets not rush that one though. May need some scrubbing. Some of them are pretty detailed and would give up a lot of the plans.

Thanks for posting this. It's exactly the kind of thing we were hoping to have happen.
