Sealed Deck Redemption in LackeyCCG Tutorial

 

This page should provide enough information to allow you played Redemption sealed deck on LackeyCCG.

 

Set up

If you have not previously played booster draft or sealed deck in LackeyCCG, you will need to do the pack configuration setup. The steps to do this are as follows...

  • Download the pack configuration and image files from MegaUpload . These files are in an archived zip.

  • Make sure LackeyCCG is not running.

  • In your LackeyCCG/plugins/Redemption folder there sill be a folder named packs. Delete this folder.

  • Unzip the zip archive in your LackeyCCG/plugins/Redemption folder, creating a new packs folder.

  • Setup is done. Yay!

 

Join a Game

This probably goes without saying, but if you want to play sealed deck you need to find an opponent to play against. Probably the easiest way to do this is to pre-arrange something with another player. You can also use the game matching server. Do this by clicking on the "Server" tab in LackeyCCG, and then click on the "Connect to game matching server!" button(see figure 1).

This will bring up the game matching server page. Click on the "Host a game..." button. When the dialog box appears, modify the game name to let people know you want to play sealed (see figure 2). Now wait for another player to join in.

Opening Packs

When you play standard Sealed Deck you start by selecting three booster packs to fill out your starter deck. To open a pack. you start by clicking on the Deck Editor tab. In the middle of the deck editor screen, there is a Card Pool sub-tab. Click on that sub-tab (see figure 3).

The card pool screen will have a button named "Add a pack or random deck." Click on this button to bring up the pack dialog window. The left hand side of the packs dialog will show a list of all the Redemption booster packs that are available (along with the Starters I and J which will be used later). Select the pack you want to opne Make sure the quantity is correctly set to the number of packs of this type you are interested in. (I have found it best to add one pack at a time, having seen strange issues when trying to add multiple packs at once.) Make sure the "Send directly to:" option is set to "Hand." Click the "Send directly to:" button (see figure 4).

Repeat the pack slection process until all three packs are in your hand.

 

Selecting a Starter Deck

You and your opponent now need to select which starter deck you will use. Currently we support the I and the J decks. On the Game screen you can chat with your opponent and decide how to do this. LackeyCCG has a "Roll" button which will simulate rolling a six-side dice for you (see figure 5).

Now the players will go back to the "Add a pack or random deck" screen, and add their starter deck to their hand.

 

Trading

The reason for adding all of the cards to your hand is to facilitate trading. From your hand you can place cards on the table. You opponent can then take control of them and add them to his/her hand. This coupled with the ability to communicate via chat is how LackeyCCG supports trading.

 

Building a Deck

When you are viewing your hand type the command /copyzonetocardpool (see figure 6) and hit enter. This will copy the cards to the Card Pool that you can build a deck out of.

Now click on the Deck Editor tab. If you are not already there, click on the Card Pool sub-tab. This should contain all of the cards you selected. Now build your deck as normal, selecting the cards from your Card Pool. When you are done click on the button under the deck area named "Load entire deck to you". This will clear the game state and load this as your new deck. Wait for your opponet to finish, and then play some sealed deck.
