How to Lead a C3G Design

How Lead a C3G Design

Gather points
All designs must either win the Public Design Nomination process, which requires you to be a C3G Ally to submit designs into, or have an Ally spend the points to start the thread. You can become an Ally and earn points by playtesting for the group. You can do that by signing up in the Public Playtesting Sign-Up thread. Playtesting can seem daunting at first, but it really is not that hard and we have a highly active group of members here and on the C3G Discord Server and we want to help you get involved. You can also earn points towards designing by submitting mini photos in our Photo Depository here.

Brainstorm your design and get approval
So you're an Ally and you have points, or you want to get a design ready for the Public Design Nomination process? You will want to workshop your design in the Public Design Workshop. We have several resources for getting your design started. First you should make yourself familiar with our previous designs which can be found in our Books of Index thread. At this point in our history, we have covered most things, so you can almost always find a similar power to the one you are thinking up, the easiest place to compare powers is with our Sortable Index. All of these are just to help you get in the right area, we have plenty of more experienced members who can help you tune your wording and make it more official if you just post your ideas in the Public Design Workshop.

Start your thread
Once you have won the Public Design Nomination or gathered your 15 C3G points via playtesting and gotten C3G Hero approval, you can start your design thread in the C3G Public Design subforum using the template found here. The template has information for the first two posts in the thread, the second post holds the design and the third post is for any art you want the artist to use on the card (this is just a suggestion, our Art Department will use what they think is the best). Once you have the thread posted, post a link to the thread in the Welcome to C3G thread and tag all of the C3G Heroes to make sure they are following the thread.

Phases of the design:
  • Breathing period
    For the first 24 hours, we don't want any changes to be made to the second post of the design thread, but you will receive plenty of feedback. Your job as a the Lead Designer of the thread is to take all of this feedback and apply it or address it and put together an updated design when when the 24 hours is up. During this period the thread title should be "The Book of <unit name> - Breathing"

  • Checklists
    Once you have a design you and a majority of the group are happy with, you can fill out our Competitive and Consistency Checklists and propose we move to initial playtesting by changing the thread title to "The Book of <unit name> - VOTE for Initial" and post "I propose we move to initial playtesting" in bold. You will need 5 Yea votes from C3G Heroes or Legends and then you can call the vote passed.

  • Initial Playtesting
    Any Hero, Legend or Sidekick can now run the initial playtest which may or may not lead to more adjustments being made to the design. The person who ran the initial playtest will suggest a cost for public playtesting. You can then make a proposal to move to public playtesting, update the thread title to "The Book of <unit name> - VOTE for Playtesting" and wait for 5 Yea votes from Heroes or Legends again. When it passes, update the thread title to "The Book of <unit name> - Playtesting" and post the mini info from your thread into the Playtesting Sign-Up thread.

  • Public Playtesting
    The amount of playtests required to settle on a cost will vary from design to design, but it is highly recommended that you playtest your own design as it helps you as the Lead Designer understand what tweaks you could make to the design to balance it. Once you have received enough testing info to settle on a cost you can propose we move to Final Editing at a certain cost. Simple make a bolded post that says "I propose we move to Final Editing at ### points" and change the thread title to "The Book of <unit name> - VOTE for Final Editing" You once again need 5 Yea votes from Heroes or Legends to pass the vote. When it passes you can update the title to "The Book of <unit name> - Final Editing"

  • Final Editing
    Final editing is usually pretty easy these days as we keep the wording fairly tuned throughout the process but this is where we finalize the wording and then the Art Department will create the cards for the design.

  • Release
    Once you have the cards, all your playtests and other information is linked in the thread, you can propose that we release the design. This vote is different, you need to tag all the Heroes and you need votes from all active Heroes before the design is released so updating the title to "The Book of <unit name> - VOTE for Release" is important. Once you have votes from all current Heroes, you design passes and is released! Take a link and post it in the Books of Index thread and we will probably ask you for a suggested booster name for that specific design so keep that in mind. Congratulations, you're now ready to start the process over again and lead another design! (C3G is not responsible for any addiction)

Re: How Lead a C3G Design

Worth noting that Allies can receive design points for submitting photos of minis that we end up using on cards (there's a thread where folks will request mini pictures, so that's the place to look for opportunities). It's one point for your photo if it ends up being used.

For Final Editing, this may change over time, but these days it's a decent idea to tag johnny139, Karat, and SirGalahad for wording checks. Sporx might be willing to take a look as well, as he's skilled at noticing things we miss!

It might be worth clarifying what's actually required for the design to be considered released and what happens with it then. Ideally an LD posts the finished link in the Books of thread and hangs around long enough to suggest a title for their release.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

This should be a first stop for new LDs taking their first steps on the path to greatness.

Tickle did such a great job with it that I made sure to link it in at least 100,000 places.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: How to Lead a C3G Design

Great post! I’m starting to work up points and the design process seemed a little daunting to me, but this cleared it up perfectly!

Re: How to Lead a C3G Design

Made some updates with Bat's feedback. Definitely did not want to mention specific people in the OP for wording, want it to be timeless and not something I need to always update. I figure someone will be around to tag the appropriate people when we hit editing.
