DC Talks Game Balance

Some folks believe there’s a great magical formula in every game developer’s computer. Others believe they simply throw darts at a board. But game balance is neither magic nor random. In a recent blog, I tried to provide an introductory glimpse into mathematical modeling as it relates to game balance. Check out the article and let me know what you think in the article’s comments section or on Facebook....

Tinkering the Engineers – Salvo

Duck!!! Its Salvo’s turn for this Tinkering the Engineers post. Stats Fast moving and with a decent KICK, Salvo has an OK threat range as a goal scorer. While his INF is average, with a below average maximum, and sporting an average DEF, he does get some ARM. His TAC is pretty low, but like Ratchet this isn’t a bad thing, as he is doubling his dice on the charge (making it easier to wrap around results). Character Traits Pumped – When...

Tinkering the Engineers – Ballista

Welcome to a new batch of Team Talk posts! This time we are tinkering with the Engineers. As always, first up is the captain – Ballista. Stats Ballista moves at an average rate and his TAC is also average for a captain. His DEF is pretty low, but he does have some ARM. His INF is average for a captain and he can only have a max of 6, but this is enough to use all three of his plays, which you could be tempted to do. His standout...

Building the Masons – Marbles

The team mascots are something of a unique proposition in the game. These animal companions follow their team captains and all bring something different to the team they play for. Luckily for the Masons, Marbles is one of the best little mascots out there. As I mentioned with Honour, it’s the flexibility of the team that is their key to victory, and Marbles may show this more than any other player on the team. Marbles is firmly in the...

Building the Masons – Mallet

Mallet is the “old man” of the Masons; if it’s happened in Guild Ball then he’s heard about it, seen it, or most likely been involved in it. Mallet is a different proposition from the other members of the team; he’s slower than most of the other players but has one of the best footballing buffs in the game. That alone is often enough to grant him a place in your starting 6. Stats MOV – At 4”/6” Mallet is on the lower end of the...
