  1. By sacrificing creatures (some are better than others) at the altar. The more wins they have, higher the stats. 

    If they have tokens or creature shards, your stat reward is multiplied. 

     

    You can also increase stats by spending credits in the Shop, when you buy stats modifiers. 

  2. Every medal signifies some accomplishment, and they are mostly distributed manually. So, you need to achieve medal prerequisites for an admin to consider whether he should give you a medal or not. 

    Most often, medals are received during the birthday festival. 

  3. Ask admins to invite you. A25 players have access to features that allow creating complex quests, features that allow changing parts of the game basically. 

    It's part of the plan to encourage player creativity and make MD grow on its own

  4. My first forum interaction was in February 2009 responding to Sagewoman's wall posting where she demanded I update my profile :D

    And then I responded to Gargant's topic which asked people how did players get their username, after which I immediately started posting on 'new ideas' for MD (kinda funny, didn't start to grow roots yet but I'm sharing how I got my name and how can the game get better :D

  5. You're right, there's a big difference.

    Though I'm not convinced the blatant copying you mention is that all-encompassing and mainstream, some of the specific pieces you mentioned seemed more inspired by rather than copied (samurai jack for instance), but maybe I'm wrong. 

     

    Just to clarify, I'm not defending Hollywood, I just like try to add more perspectives to the table: so what if we have copied movies? If we are not aware of the original, in our perspective we are seeing something new? 

    If people weren't seeing them as new they wouldn't watch and such movies wouldn't bring money and Hollywood wouldn't shoot them. So it's not a waste, as long as it's a copy of a good movie :D

    The important thing at the end of the day, if you enjoyed a copy-movie, is not to idealize people behind it, but that should be the case with anything,people are never perfect, geniuses that are wonderful human beings etc, there's always some uncanny detail lying somewhere. 

    I liked Samurai Jack, I don't necessarily think it's the most brillitant piece made by unbelievably creative and original people

  6. Even when you look at 'the original', there's a good chance it's a retelling as well. 

    I mean look at The Bible/Christianity. Revolutionary religion that swallowed a big chunk of the known world, but its concepts were all already present in other religions. 

    It's how stuff always worked, as Newton said we are dwarves standing on the shoulders of giants, or standing on the shoulders of dwarves which are standing on the shoulders of other dwarves... (pardon my poor rephrasing, maybe Newton said it somehow differently) 

  7. In regards to Hollywood, I think it got a bit weaker with all of these streaming services. I mean, Netflix is spending money on shows left and right, which brings money to new antipattern stuff, now is the best chance to break Hollywood's domination. 

    When it comes to Japanese influence, I think it's a crime not to mention The Power Rangers! :D

    But seriously, like others said, you always take inspiration from somewhere. In case of movies, a bunch of them were copied, some from Japan, some from other countries (a lot of European movies, anywhere where you can find quality material that couldn't reach global peak because of language/low budget production). 

    It's hard to be original too, even when you try there's a good chance somebody told something similar. There were so many movies made, there were so many stories told, and most of them revolve around some archetypes. 

  8. As far as I remember skillvampire aura makes a sum of opponents creatures stats (influence and tokens included) and redistributes a percentage of it to your creatures evenly, depending on the difference to your stats. Soulweaver additionally deduces that same amount from enemy's creatures.

    With this shard, you wouldnt calculate percentages but just swap them entirely. 

    I'm not sure did I answer your question or just repeat my original post :D

  9. There might be creatures that have some shade of purple (at least in my male simplistic eyes) like the pimped grassan and the 14th anniv hollow. Or are those shades of pink :D 

  10. Some of these are very nice, but at the same time it will get so hard to keep track of all the abilities going around :D

    But to suggest something rather than only prattle:

    toxicblades -  Toxic Blades, attacked creatures are paralyzed (frozen) for 1 round. (appliable only to melee weapon attacks? or to arrow attacks too? seems too OP at the moment, but maybe you'll use it somehow)

    (something similar) ensnare - Ensnare, neutralizes winged supremacy effect for targeted creature for 1 round
