Kingdoms Deck Builder and Sharer

(Originally Posting by xankludan. Direct all issues and compliments to him.)

http://www.kccgdecks.com

Over Christmas break I had some ideas about building a site to visually share decks. After some some initial tests, I dove in and started building. The above site is the product of that work and is meant to help KingdomsCCG users share their favorite deck ideas, both publicly and privately.

Public decks will appear in the deck browsing list and are visible to anyone browsing the site.
New decks are always private, so use the public checkbox if you'd like the world to see it.

Private decks will not show up in the public list, but will generate a link, like this (http://www.kccgdecks.com/#deckIDNOM), that you can send to your friends or post to the forums. Only those who have the link can view the deck.

To build and save decks, you must register an account. The authentication system is provided by Firebase (https://www.firebase.com/), so it does require an email address. There is no validation on the email address, so you can make one up if you choose. The username field will be used when displaying who created the deck. Also, don't forget your password, because at this time I have no way to recover lost passwords.

After the patch, I'll be updating card data as soon as Antic makes the new images available. I'm also missing the Christmas promo cards because they were never posted to the wiki, so when those are available I'll get them entered. I'm working on entering gem values for legendaries and epics, which will provide a nifty gem total to your deck. This will be an estimate, as the dynamic market will no doubt shift faster then I can get the data entered, but should be interesting.

If there's anyone out there who has some javascript / css knowledge and would like to help with the site, message me your qualifications and I may give you access to develop (dropbox is required). My time is pretty limited, so we'll see where this all goes, but I hope everyone enjoys it as a fun tool for the community.

DISCLAIMERS
I reserve the right to delete any offensive data or users without warning. Keep it clean.

If you have problems with the site or see incorrect data, you can message me via the forums.

The site heavily uses jquery (javascript), so you must have javascript enabled. It may not work in Internet Explorer, as there are so many css and javascript issues in IE and I don't have time to provide workarounds. It should work in the latest version of Firefox and Chrome.

The site probably won't work on mobile, the layout is too large and inflexible.

The site uses a large sprites file to build the card images. This weighs in at about 2megs and is stored in ImageShack, which may be blocked by some corporate firewalls. The image should be a one time download, after which it should cache and load very quickly. If you are on a slow connection, it make take a few seconds to load the images, so give it some time.

I will try to post updates or changes to the site here. There is a big change coming Feb 4th, as my backend provider is changing up some of their code. Hopefully all will be updated correctly and chaos will not ensue :)

0.9.2.1 updates are coming soon.

2/2/13 - Reworked authentication and registering to comply with new standards. If you experience any problems, please let me know

- switched hover images to wiki image links, providing larger size and updated as long as the wiki is updated

2/4/13 - had a few hiccups due to the new authentication methods. If a blank screen loads, pull down the login screen and click Logout, then log back in again.

Would it be possible to change the sort order to match the in game sort? Makes it easier to look at the decks.

Good idea, gonna try that next. They're using a little more complicated sort then I have currently.
I think it's Creature, Spell, Gear, Runeword -> Rarity -> Mana Cost -> Name

12/21/13 - Changed sort order so it matches sort used in game for both card selection and deck viewing. Sort order is Card Type (Creature,Spell,Gear,Runeword), ManaCost, Rarity(common,uncommon,rare,epic,legendary),CardName

Updates to thumbnails and adding the two missing cards are coming soon.

Hi xan, with upcoming 9.3 in mind, could you add a "Date Added" or "Relevant Patch" stat for decks? It would give a good frame of reference for the meta at the time.

Good idea, I'll see about getting something like that implemented next week. Probably a created date stamp and a user enter-able patch version

Note that I'm going on vacation during Tribes release so, so deck builder won't have Tribes cards right away. They should be added in increments starting early July.
