@ Villalva: I can accept any fact. I just wonder why some people feel the need to voice a negative opinion, is all. As General said, if you're not here to offer a solution then you're part of the problem. By "solution" I do not mean simply agreeing with me or anyone else, but approaching this from a viewpoint that suggests solidarity toward a common goal, a positive end that benefits people who are already here and those who may come later. Oh, and what "fact" does your concern over my religiosity fall under?

@Vimes: You mean like I was priced out of markets when I joined five years ago? Yes, even then there was a rift, but no one was too concerned about it then. It has taken me five years to get where I am today, but I have not complained about that. As always, my complaints come only because of the negative propaganda and defeatist attitudes people espouse.

@Dalamar and / or Richard. I made a request, there has been discussion on the matter. Should it not be put to a vote? Your respective silence is disconcerting.

This site is, as sad as it sounds, dead. No one can't deny that. And it's been a long time that way. I know, there are maybe even few games a day, but even 5 games across the site is being pretty much dead, for an multiplayer online game.

The real shame is that TT probably isn't that popular as some of us would like it to be, and that is why there's still no real online version. I'd say card games are pretty popular (still) these days and I'd gladly still play a proper online version like TTA was (or our Czech TTO back in the days).

Even not FF related TT-like based games are rather rare to find. I've recently came across "Triad Battle" on Google Store. It's decent, but slightly p2w, with no special rules (only elements), no card levels and no tournaments - so pretty much TT at its core, but rather disappointing to play in a long run.

It's sad, I'd still be passionate about TT, if just there was a site for it. I'd even accept to go away from the FF and just play TT with some "random" characters.

There's probably no solution to find on this site. The only way is to create and design a new game, preferably cellphone friendly, as someone suggested. But could that ever success? Isn't there a reason why TT still doesn't have official online version (i don't really even count that FF portal crap)? Even in the "Hearthstone Era"? You have to consider that TTA even in its active days had like 100 people online? Could we consider that as a "big" playerbase?

I actually thought about it too, and would be willing to put some time into it, but my skills would be limited to admin stuff and maybe card design. And then again, it could aswell all go to waste because there is simply no players for Triple Triad these days.

What about the extreme lack of advertising? I don't think advertising could actually bring a lot more new players, people don't seem to be interested in games that require thinking in a short amount of time, but it's not really possible to think of an expansion of players if no one besides people who played ff8 know the game.

Another aspect that could have played an influence on the site activitity is that it had a pretty strong sense of "collection", when there is really nothing to collect than just pixels with numbers on, quite lame, this would mean incrasing the odds of rares and probably changing the whole reward system...

But then again, even if there was an app for this site... I don't think it's the kind of game people want to play online, so it's not really a matter of wheter the admins do something or not, the game is dead in it's core, there isn't really much to do. The site had some succes from 2004 to 2014, that's it, the improvement in the technology and the acces to internet made this game almost unviable

Focusing on game pace a bit would help too, so it's not too much think-related. 1-2mins per turn, for example. But ofc the need to refresh would need to go, cards would need to be placed in real time.

Can agree this site or TT in general was hardly ever advertised and FF8 fanbase isn't probably as big as of at least some FF titles. But then again, TT is in FF14 too and it likely didn't do much to increase popularity.

Reward system and the rarity was always bad, IMO. I mean, I NEVER got a single rare in pack on this site. I guess I didn't mind too much as rares were pretty much banned in tournament play, but it still was kinda lame.

But as you said, the technology is in different places, players want different things... TT can hardly work nowadays, especially in form where TTA currently is.

After talking with Odin a bit about it, if the Mystic Quest deck is actually wanted, we can add it, but as I hate coming up with number lists, somebody else will have to come up with a somewhat balanced list.

It took a bit of searching, but I found a number list I had proposed some time back:

Spoiler! :
Level 1

1144
4511
3423
5321
3224
5223
3142
2351
4241
1332
6212

Level 2

6422
2172
1641
1712
3254
3344
4451
4425
5513
3515
4126

Level 3

4723
3445
5227
1636
6155
4336
3653
7343
5732
3651
2525





Level 4

3176
5743
6436
3547
7353
6246
5571
4654
2726
4565
2276

Level 5

6744
7654
2557
3576
7535
6363
5457
7626
7272
5556
3727

Level 6

8374
3378
2468
3478
8381
2758
5584
6168
5836
8456
6665





Level 7

7385
5748
6683
6378
8655
8466
7674
4757
3876
7872
8476

Level 8

6289
9119
8833
7494
7719
6288
5885
9483
5768
5695
6469

Level 9

A744
65A6
5868
755A
2789
3939
7749
924A
A816
57A4
94A3





Level 10

46A9
A757
78A3
9775
8899
6968
888A
4897
9586
369A
789A



There was talk that a few number combinations were too great while a few others already existed. If that's the case, then use what is usable and come up with something better for the few that aren't workable. In all seriousness, I see nothing wrong with two cards from separate decks having the same number sequence.

At least some of these Level 10 numbers are insanely powerful. Total value of level 10 card is usually like 25-28 I think. All of these are strong, but especially 8899, 888A and 789A is simply over the line.

True, max. value has alwas been 29: A964, A766, etc.

See that? It means I am already aware of this, which is why the statement was made. Daniel and I discussed this in the original post, and yes, 29 max is what it should be. Instead of pointing out the obvious, Chicony, come up with workable combinations.

If you were aware, why didn't you take the short time to adjust the obviously overpowered combinations yourself.

These are OK:
46A9
A757
78A3
9775
369A

Rest are either too strong (888A, 8899, 789A) or already exists (6968, 4897, 9586).

Here is alternative level 10 list I can came up with now to choose from:
10, 4, 8, 6
6, 4, 8, 10
8, 6, 8, 6
1, 7, 9, 10
2, 9, 9, 8
7, 7, 7, 7
5, 10, 7, 6
3, 9, 10, 6
9, 8, 3, 8
4, 10, 5, 9
5, 8, 7, 8

Edit: Just checked Level 9 and like 7-8 card combos are already in game, so this would require more time and effort and go through all the levels. I don't think we want to do lame/lazy job by adding the same cards.

I think admins have something agains a card with only one number in the 4 spots. Probably because it would be too good for plus. Would be nice to see a card with the A666 combination old Sephiroth and Erdrick had.

Or Nanaki's 5888.

I remember when the FFXIV deck was being added someone posted a list of all the possible number combos that were unused for each level but I can't find it now. Anyone have any ideas where it might be? I thought it was within the FFIV custom cards thread or linked within it but it doesn't seem to be.

Would be a shame if it's been deleted because it'd be a great point of reference for coming up with new combos.

Regardless of what our respective opinions are I would expect a new deck would have no repeated number combos from other decks, no triple numbered level 10s and no quadruple numbers anywhere. I did used to wonder if a low level rare eg 1111 would be awesome or terrible but probably wouldn't happen regardless.

Dal let me know if that thinking's wrong but I'm pretty sure a big part of the deck remakes years ago was to apply those rules. Would be good to know as well if you're planning on having any rares or semis in the new deck and what levels. Any chance for a rare on lv2 or lv3, that would be new?

If I remember right there weren't many feasible new lv5 combos left that weren't 77s which is why we ended up with 7425 and 5446 as lv5.

If anyone can find that old thread great link it up here, but if it is gone no worries I'll have a look through what's already been posted here at some point over the next few days anyway, will just take a bit longer.

If Dal tends to stay with his original proposal, there are two rares:

I think the two are good, but yes, perhaps a low-level semi could be added.
