Post Warlord needs a facelift
So After looking over the L5R cards and some pieces from this CCG I've come to a conclusion that Warlord needs a friggen face lift. Anyone want to attempt some ideas on hos to bring the look of the cards up a notch?

I don't think it does tbh, i reckon its just fine. Also have you seen the new L5R cards in comparison to the old ones.... they've completely lost thier coolness >_>. So a facelift could make warlord cards even worse :shrug:

i love the new look of L5R! i dont get why people think it looks bad, have you done a side by side of some of the cards yet? its seriously better then before, and besides, it isnt the first facelift L5R has ever done.

I understand that there is a financial costs and this is mostly just theory but the cards themselves look outdated and old when compared to current and up and comming CCG's.

If Warlord wants to attract new players and not die a slow death then perhaps a new visual look would be in order.

I agree.
I think a lot of things could stand to be revamped XD

Most new ccg's do have more of a visual appeal..otoh, most new ccg's only have visual appeal, and burn out fast.

Well, the last Warlord face lift was successful, when they introduced Full-Bleed warlords into CE. That generated a lot of buzz and was overwhelmingly received. I think a new layout design could help a game like Warlord rather than hurt it, considering the game is 7 yrs old soon.

I wouldn't mind a facelift as long as it wasn't too busy :)

attempt 1:

Now, I'm no art major or photoshop wiz but this is what I've mishmashed together so far. I've decreased the size of the class symbol, hp symbol, and skill symbol by about 70% and removed the 'character' title from the card. We should be at a point where such a thing is no longer necessary. I've added a faction symbol to the card so we won't need it taking yup text space in the box. The overall size has been increased by about 25%, this should allow more room for some more of the wordy cards. I've also added feat symbols along the bottom row, this helps keep them out of the card text as well.

let me know what ya think. There is still a lot I would like to see updated by I just don't have the skills yet to really pull it off.

Cool card. Couple typos there, though.

I know, comes with me having migraines. More trying to stretch out some lengthy card effects to get the most out of the space.

Not satisfied with the feat symbols on that one but I can't concentrate enough to work on it more now.

I like the idea of a faction symbol to save space. That feat symbols would defintely have to be cleaned up a bit. Maybe make the font size of the bonus smaller so you could see the feat symbol behind it easier?
