Law Mode as the first mode new players see

Discussion and questions about the latest version of Chaos Reborn. Not for bugs, but for comments about the game play.

    it is inferior because there are a lot of things missing (critical strikes, healing etc)
    Law mode actually has a LOT of rng; map position, deck generation, card draw, web, paralyse and more.


    So in a Law Mode game where both players play optimally; who wins?

    Is it the player who moves first? - If so, that's no game...

    Or is it the player who started with the better deck, and got luck with those paralyse attacks? - If so then the player only feels that they have more control over the outcome, but in actual fact it's still 'just a dice roll'.

    If someone casts Chaos Shift on turn 1 then they're lessening rng for themselves throughout the rest of the game in Chaos Mode, and the casting cost in Law mode - It's an effective tactic regarless of the mode of play.

    If you attack a Hyrda with enough rats, then you will eventually kill it, again this is regardless of mode. You'll eventually wear down its HP in Law mode, the difference in Chaos mode is because that kill is percentage based then neither player knows when it will die - This for me adds tension, and is the reason why I play Chaos mode. I avoid Law mode like the plague... b'dum!

    Exactly.

  • If we compare Chaos mode to a hot and spicy curry - It's not for everyone, but for those who enjoy it's certainly addictive.

    And if we compare Law mode to a salad - Missing a kick, but quite a safe option for those who don't like taking risks.

    The middle ground would be a curried lettuce - There's a reason why restaurants don't offer this dish.

  • Going back to the original topic of the thread...

    CR is at the moment trying to get everyone who is new to the game to go for the salad option...

    Can we please have the Vindaloo at least appearing on the menu with the same level of exposure. That way our diners can make an informed choice, and there's a better chance of them staying for a coffee after the meal.

  • I can confirm that you are given the choice of either Law Mode or Chaos Mode. A friend of mine picked it up a few weeks back and can confirm he was given the choice between Law Mode or Chaos Mode. He didn't see that the game preferred one option over the other, but was going to opt for Law Mode as it sounded more appealing (coming from an X Com veteran that I consider him to be). He enjoys both modes.
