Suggested rephrasing for next version of ACG Guild Guide re: Tier Advancement.

Hiya,

Quick suggestion for some slightly amended wording in the next version of the Adventure Card Game Guild guide.

Currently, v5.0 OP Guide, Appendix 1, p. 14. Tier Rewards, paragraph 1 reads:

Quote:
After you successfully complete a new scenario, your character earns a tier reward based on the number of new scenarios your character has completed within your tier. [...]

Currently, v5.0 OP Guide, Appendix 1, p. 14. Tier Rewards, paragraph 3 reads:

Quote:
Anytime after winning your fourth new scenario in any tier, you can choose to advance a tier; [...]

This latter language, in particular, appears to suggest that you can choose to advance a tier whenever you want, provided you have completed at least four scenarios at your current tier. I'm advised this is not the case.

I respectfully suggest it might be clearer if these read:

Quote:
After you successfully complete a new scenario and receive scenario rewards, your character earns a tier reward based on the number of new scenarios your character has completed within your tier. [...]

and:

Quote:
Whenever you complete your fourth or fifth new scenario in any tier, after receiving scenario rewards, you can choose to advance a tier; [...]

This would more clearly tie tier advancement back to the order of operations for rewards spelled out at v5.0 OP Guide, p. 10, "After the Scenario", para. 1:

Quote:
A major difference in Adventure Card Guild play is the method by which you improve your deck after completing a scenario. This happens in three steps: earning scenario rewards, earning tier rewards, and upgrading your deck.

Just a humble suggestion from a rather foolish halfling bard hitherto befuddled by "anytime". :)

I'm not sure if your wording is exactly the solution that is needed, but I concur with your point.

The decision to advance a tier can only be made in a narrow window of time -- basically, in the resolution of a scenario (in my understanding). You can't just decide in the middle of the fifth scenario "Oh, I'll go up a tier right now", for example.

Fair, I'm sure there are more clear and succinct ways of stating it. To add clarity, if not succinctness, I wonder if the following are better:

Quote:


Immediately after you successfully complete a new scenario and receive scenario rewards, your character earns a tier reward based on the number of new scenarios your character has completed within your tier. [...]

and:

Quote:


Immediately after receiving scenario rewards for completing your fourth or fifth new scenario in any tier, you can choose to advance a tier; [...]
