[Ep3] CARDrevolution: Combo Central

Postby Forge » Wed Dec 26, 2007 9:15 pm

A while ago, I begun a wonderful free forum dedicated to PSO Ep3. Now I know that some people must still play it, and I'm able to play again, so I've decided to start readvertising.

You can find it easily at http://www.cardrevolution.headplug.com or more directly at [url]z13.invisionfree.com/cardrevolution[/url]. Anyone interested in Ep3, please head over there and we'll see if we can bring the place back from the dead!

Nonetheless, I decided to bring some of its information over here, so I give you the best comboes I have found within Ep3...

Gulgus / Duel Strike
This is my absolute favourite. It's a bit of a pain to piece together, but its well worth the effort. On its own, the Gulgus can be quite useful, but if you attack with the Action Card, Duel Strike, a nice little dance with the rules occurs. Duel Strike has Mutual Death, which kills the target if the AP is the same as that of the attacker. Since the Gulgus has Copy, this always triggers, and will kill any Field Character that you attack. There are a few exceptions, and you should look out for cards with Action Disruptor, and I believe that Cancel will stop this combo, but against the computer this is almost always a perfect combo. Slightly expensive, but well worth the effort to put together.

Canabin / Survival
This is a reflexive defense combo, that will kill whatever FC attacks the Canabin. The Canabin has Death Companion, which will sacrifice itself and kill the opposing FC if the Canabin has 1 or 2 HP at the end of the combat. Survival will activate as long as the Canabin has 4 HP, and will negate all damage, instead setting the HP to 1 after the combat. This activates Death Companion, which kills both FCs. Since this is a defensive combo, it cannot be defended against.

This combo can be adapted for use on the Hunters side my replacing the Canabin with the Baranz Launcher, where the combo has the added bonus of Return when the Launcher dies. This allows for wonderful repeatability.

Nonetheless, once this combo is sprung once, the Canabin becomes a feared FC, and is strategically stronger. Couple with a few strong attack cards and you have a very strong offensive force. With a nice self-destruct mechanism. It's a good idea to run a lot of other Defense cards to protect the Canabin from blowing up when you don't want it to.

...

So, does anyone else share this desire to break the game rules as much as myself? Anyone with any other combos (not necessarily designed by the game designers)?

One hundred and three of you have read this.

Have any of you any responses at all?

PS. I'm just about to build another deck to obliterate foes using these strategies!

I'm not playing PSO: Episode III currently. Pretty cool tricks, though.

And as a rebuttal... :P

3 months have passed. Don't you have any more posts for us? D:

By the way, we have a lot of guests most of the time snooping around our board, and their views also get registered. :)

Probably some of the people come from search engines, bookmarking sites/plug ins, bots(search and/or spam), or are just lurkers.

Even with the closure of the servers the psobb site is up and the download still available. I'd like to play episode III but buying a game cube just for 3 or 5 games would be a waste of money >_>

Buying a game console for 3 or 5 games is not a waste of money. Especially if they're good games. Plus, the GameCube is quite cheap.

Or you could buy a Wii.

Well, it is when you don't have a job and depend your parents money xD I'm sticking with my PS2 and 30+ games that interests me.

And no on the Wii, I'd been there, and the only good thing for me currently is Brawl and Wii Sports... I'm looking forward the PS3 (DMC4, MSG4, GT5, Killzone 2, Genji) but then, I'm going off topic so I should stop here >_<

I live at home, have no job, and depend on my parents for money, and still think that buying a cheap game console for 3 or 5 games is justifiable. :) Seriously, GameCubes are about the price of a good new game these days.

Donate plasma. Go to a pawnshop. Don't forget the reciept!

Problem solved!


I found a usable copy of PSO ep3. And I'm going to get a PSO ep.1/2 plus. However, I can't find a copy of PSO blueburst anywhere. Has it always been download only or were sales so poor you can't even find it on e-bay (Yes, I've looked)?

Oh, one more thing. I was looking at the box copies to PSU and AoI. They have markers for the previous PSO games. Does this mean that the old PSO games will be playable thru PSU? Or some variant of that explanation...?

Well, you cannot play PSO thru PSU, but they are including some of the levels.

Okay, So I got a bust on PSO 1/2 plus (maybe? I'll find out today). Still gonna get PSO 3.

However, what I'd really like to know is if any of the online DL for PSO are still available and if they are, where I can get them.

One more thing...


HOW THE F*** DO I USE THE SCREENSHOT FEATURE IN PSO (I have both controllers and two memory cards...)

F***! I'm supposed to have the second controller in slot 4, aren't I?

I don't have my manual anymore, so it's hard for me to remember stuff like that.
