Wizardry Cards Beta: What You Need to Know

Tucked away into a corner of Diagon Alley stands a tiny little shop which looks like a castle. A worn sign on the outside reads 'The Card Wizard's Castle'.

Wizardry Cards Beta: What You Need to Know

Postby Rhynn » Thu Jul 07, 2016 9:13 pm

The Wizardry Cards feature is currently in Beta, and will be until we deem it ready. Here are a few things you need to know.

  • We really, really, really want your feedback! You can post it here, or let the staff know through Private Messages. Preferably here though.
  • Card pack prices are subject to change. We're still figuring out just how easy/hard it is to earn Galleons on the site, so it's rather difficult to find a balance where the card packs are affordable yet priced high enough to require effort to collect all cards.
  • Suggest additional features!
  • Currently the system is loosely based on the system the Pottermore Fan Forum uses for the Capsule Collection Machine. We're hoping to move away from this before actually going out of Beta, but it'll depend largely on how the coding for the Adoptables goes.
  • Currently the Trading page looks rather ugly; this'll be fixed ASAP
  • The images for two cards in each of the four House sets will be changing soon; the current ones are placeholders due to time restraints. The cards in question are the House Cup and Quidditch Cup cards.
  • Finally... make sure to give us your feedback and suggest additional features! While we can't promise we can implement all features, we'd like to make the Wizardry Cards something that keeps people coming back to the site, so it should be as awesome as we can make it!

The images for the House Cup and Quidditch Cup cards have been changed for each set! They are now images unique to PurebloodMuggle.

I'd find it fun if there was also a little bit of information we could read on each card. :)
Seeking the Slytherin 'Value: Cunning' card. Will trade duplicate card of equal value. :)
Also seeking to complete my Hufflepuff collection - will trade duplicate cards. :)

You mean like a sort of flavour text on each card? Or separate somewhere? I'd have to change the design of the cards (mainly make them larger) to add a flavour text, but it can definitely be done :)

Hmm, could be neat if you hovered over them with the mouse and text popped up. Nooooooo idea if that's feasible coding-wise with the way everything's currently set up though. XD

Edit: Sort of like FR? Could maybe include a close-up of the card too, since they're sort of small.

Hrmm not sure if that's possible. Will look into it though! Otherwise it would require some custom coding, which means it would take a while at least.

Update on the above: it's totally going to work :) I'll be making larger versions of each card which include some flavour text, which will pop up when hovering over the card. It'll take a little while to be finished, however, since it does involve re-making every card :)
