The plan as it unfolds

06 May 2019

Astrolabe

Thanks so much for the feedback given to us on cards that have been changed or updated. These cards have now been updated in the database along with any consequences this might have for their synergies.

We have been looking into server based features and are considering adding comments and ratings on specific synergies. This is something we have planned for the future. If you spot any other errors or have suggestions, don’t hesitate to get in touch using our feedback form at the bottom of the page!

Back To Mobile Basics

Its been a while since our last update. So here goes!

Mobile Ready

We've been working diligently on improvements to the interface with a focus on mobile. The original intention was that users would be viewing the site on their desktop monitor while playing but tabbing in and out of game can get annoying for those not fortunate enough to have multiple monitors.

With that in mind we've been working to streamline the interface so that its more usable on mobile and tablet devices to make it a tool you can use alongside your gameplay, WITHOUT the interuptions.

There is still a way to go before the whole site is mobile ready, but we'll keep you updated as we work our way through it.

We've also been looking at ways to improve rendering of the cards list and smoother scrolling. We hope the updates feel a little faster and the scrolling much smoother, but we are looking at ways to improve going forward as the number of cards and relics are ever growing!

  • Navigation now mobile
  • Tierlist pages now mobile ready
  • Blog pages mobile ready
  • Improved card rendering and scrolling on long lists like the homepage

New Card Detail Overlays and Pages

To help you find useful information about a single card we've created a new card detail interface. When clicking a card on the home page it will bring up details about the card, its synergies and antisynergies with both cards and relics.

  • New card detai overlay
  • Improved card detail design
  • Improved card detail page design for google referrals
  • Card detail overlay and pages mobile ready

New Cards

There has been a raft of new cards and relics added which have now included in Well-Laid Plans.

  • New cards and relics added following on from the beta patches.
  • Card image updates for some of the newer colorless cards.

As always let us know if you like the imrpoved features and designs or if you have any feedback in general (form at the bottom of the page) . It helps us make this tool better for everyone!

BIASED COGNITION

Tier lists are here and ready to go! Now you can see the general power level of a card when loading cards up in the comparator or when just generally browsing.

The tier lists rank from S+ to F, and are a general indicator of how strong the card is IN ANY GIVEN DECK. There are a lot of cards that when combined have insanely strong combo potential, but alone are pretty terrible.

The tier given is intended to show you how 'generally' strong each card is. That's not to say you can never pick an E rated card, but make sure you have the proper deck to support it before you do.

This is particularly important in the early game, when there aren't as many synergies to look out for. It can often be a choice between 0 synergies, 0 synergies and 0 synergies, so this allows to give you some greater context to a card's strength - the higher tier cards are better stand-alone cards, and can help form a foundation before any clear synergies become apparent. It can even help out when EVERY card seems to have high synergy ratings - the defect class in particular has a lot of synergistic interactions involving evoking and channeling orbs, so it can help to give a little clarity when everything seems to fit into a deck.

We've also added a handy tier lists page for if you want to take a quick skim of the ratings before heading into the Spire.

Sensory Stone Loadout Memory

Use of the sensory stone has allowed you to bring back the memory of the past (loadout you had built). Yes, your last loadout is now automatically saved!

We've made it so that you can hop straight back in and carry on where you left off!

Effortless domination awaits.

To restore your last loadout just press the 'continue' button located in the navigation bar, if you can't see it, then you've not got a previous loadout.

New Features:

  • Restore previous loadout.
  • Relics search bar added.

Bug fixes:

  • Fix an error on the comparator where it wasn't showing any card synergies only relic synergies.

VINTAGE

It's here! Relics have been integrated into the deck builder and the comparer. Having trouble decided on a boss relic? Not anymore! Not sure what to get from the shop? Stick the cards and relics side by side to see all of their synergies at a glance!

As always, if you encounter any bugs, get in contact with us using the report a bug feature. Every bug report counts!

Coming soon: search bar improvements and ratio-based synergies!

We're Live!

Hello and welcome to Well-laid Plans, a new tool for Slay The Spire that aims to help guide you around card and relic picks as you play.

WLP is currently under heavy contruction and our aim is to keep you up-to-date with everything we are doing as we build more functionailty into the site.

Currently WLP allows the following:

  • Browse all cards

  • See card normal and upgraded states

  • Build your game deck

  • Analyse cards offered with cards in your deck to highligh synergies and antisynergies

This is a very early stage of the tool and there are other features we are working towards adding.

Currently underway:

  • Relic comparing

  • Relic synergies and antisynergies with cards

  • Relic synergies and antisynergies with relics

  • Basic card information

We are really excited to launch this product after working hard over the last 3 weeks to get it up and running.

Well I think that just about wraps up our first devlog!

PS: If you have any feedback we'd love to hear it. Just post a message on the feedback form at the bottom of this page.

Until next time!
