Posts Tagged ‘Community Links’

Greetings Fellow Dice Fans!

 

Some recent changes within the community left players without their go-to information hub. A group of stellar individuals have answered the call and created an information hub that caters to players of all skill levels and play styles. The Dice Coalition is live and ready for your browsing! This site provides a variety of original content as well as easy access to other content creators and their work.

You can find them on Facebook and Twitter too!

Team Builder

Remember DM RetroBox? Well, they basically have the same thing. You can do everything on TDC’s Team Builder that you could on RetroBox. I’ll be linking TDC’s Team Builder in my Confusing Card of the Week articles from now on.

If you’re not familiar with the Team Builder, you should definitely check it out. It’s a great place to save team builds and look for cards. You can enter a variety of search parameters (for example: affiliation, text, name, etc) to help you find the right card for your team. It’s a great tool for all players.

New Player Resources

There is a drop down menu that offers several great resources for new players. You can find links to all the previous rulebooks as well as the current one, guides for online play, links to local scenes, and much more! I recommend new players start here.

Wiki

The Wiki will be a highly useful tool for all players. You can find practically any information you need in the Wiki from Keyword definitions to set lists.

Articles and Blogs

One of the things I love about this site is that the site collects the links of other Dice Masters content and adds it into a feed. That feed will send viewers to the original content. I’m not sure if folks realize this or not, but as a content creator myself, this is awesome! But you don’t have to have your own site to have content on The Dice Coalition. They have a blog section where folks can create content directly on the site. This type of feed puts all kinds of information at the tips of your fingers – and all in one place.

Community

Under the Community drop down menu, you can find links to all kinds of resources. Everything from links to Facebook groups, local scenes, blogs, events, rulings, and so much more can be found here.

Homepage

Everything mentioned has been in the top bar of the Homepage. There are easy access blocks or boxes on the Homepage as well as a rotating carousel that has featured items like podcast episodes, articles, news, etc.

Below the carousel are four main info blocks that you can scroll through. One is for News which features breaking news.

The info block next to News is for articles and blogs from various sites, including The Dice Coalition. The most recently published content is close to the top, but you can scroll down for older content. Clicking one of these links will take you directly to the content creator. For example, if you click my most recent Confusing Card of the Week link in that block, it will bring here, to my site!

Below the News block is the Media block. You can find podcasts and videos here. I can’t express to you just how convenient it is for me to have these separate from articles. Sometimes I want to watch a video or listen to a podcast, but I don’t want to sift through a dozen article links to find a video. This is a much easier way to find a specific type of content.

Next to the Media block is the Rulings block. If WizKids publishes a ruling on WORF, it’s gonna pop up here too! The most recent rulings will be towards the top, but you can scroll down for other rulings too.

Final Thoughts

If you’re not convinced to at least check it out, then I truly don’t know what will convince you. The site is easy to navigate as well, which is something I’m fairly particular about. If I have trouble navigating a site or finding content, I’m less likely to continue using it.

One feature you will see missing from this site is a Forum. With social media and platforms like Reddit, forums are not as useful as they once were for website – especially with the upkeep. Social media sites and even Reddit are much easier for folks to access on the go than a typical forum. I’m not disappointed at all that TDC chose to exclude a forum. They compensated for the lack of a forum by adding links that direct players to those other platforms for discussions.

It’s an awesome site for content creators, like myself, to be able to write an article or make a video or podcast, and not have to duplicate it on another site. I tried duplicating my content on The Reserve Pool’s blog for a long time, but it took too much work to format a single article twice. I eventually stopped putting my content up on their blog. With the way The Dice Coalition is set up, I don’t have to duplicate my content. They are doing a great service to content creators and players alike, and I appreciate all their hard work.

If you want to easily find a variety of Dice Masters content, I recommend going to this site. The Dice Coalition is THE information hub for Dice Masters!

If you would like to contact them, they can links on their site, or you can contact them through Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for reading! Please remember to like, follow, and subscribe – and don’t forget to show some love to The Dice Coalition as well!

Roll on, Dice Masters!

Greetings Fellow Dice Fans!

 

I hope that you found my site because of Dice Masters, HeroClix, board games, or just superheroes in general! While I like a variety of different games, my main love is Dice Masters and I’m here to help other players grow. I’m not an expert and I’m not affiliated with WizKids, but I like to think that I have enough knowledge that I can do some good.

First, I want to be sure that all of you potential Dice Masters out there have links to various resources, official and unofficial. As my HeroClix followers grow, I’ll add another section for HeroClix links!

Archived Sites

The Reserve Pool

About Me and My Blog

The first time I ever did an ‘article’ was on July 18, 2015 in our local Dice Masters group on Facebook about Captain Cold: Leonard Wynters. It didn’t take long for me to realize that Facebook wasn’t the best place for publishing articles. I dug up an old WordPress site I’d started and hadn’t done anything with and began transferring my previous articles. My Dice Dice Kitty persona was born at that moment on November 8, 2015 and has spread to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

My blog is primarily about Dice Masters, but I’ve grown it to include HeroClix, Board Games, and other various superhero related material. I’m also a huge fan of My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so you’ll see I use lots of screen shots from those IPs for article pictures and other various things. If I go to a convention and take cosplay pictures, you’ll likely see them in the sidebar from Instagram or Twitter.

I try to focus my articles and videos on reviews, unboxings, rules help, strategies, and accessory ideas but I’m always open to suggestions! I am always looking for Confusing Card of the Week suggestions, so don’t be shy – drop me a line! I know some folks are worried that they’ll be made fun of or laughed at because they don’t understand how something works. I do not promote those elitist type attitudes and I do not tolerate others that make those types of remarks. This is a safe place to ask sincere questions. We’re all here to learn and we’re all on different levels of understanding in regards to how things work in Dice Masters. I want to help each player elevate their understanding of the game in any way that I can.

I hope folks find my reviews helpful and informational. When it comes to my reviews, I do not play favorites with companies and I always give my honest opinion. My opinion is not fact, of course, but it is at least another perspective to take into consideration when it comes to products that folks want to spend their hard earned money on. I encourage everyone to seek out multiple reviews for a product so that they have as much information and perspective as possible!

Basic Rules

I keep my private life out of my blog, so you won’t see articles about politics or religion. This is not the place for it, so I do not condone any political or religious related content – regardless of any good intentions.

I do not approve of anything obscene, vulgar, or offensive being posted in comments on any of the sites I host from.

I don’t like folks being mean to each other. There is enough cruelty in the world and I don’t want it on any of my content. Please, express your negativity in a more constructive way and don’t direct it at anyone.

Please, do not spread rumors about other players or WizKids. Even if you have proof of a player being less than honorable, I am not the person to speak to. I do not ‘call out‘ folks on any of my social media outlets. I also do not allow players to bash WizKids on my outlets. We all get frustrated, but being rude doesn’t get anything accomplished.

Contacting Me

While I have folks from the community on my private Facebook page, I do not share my private social media pages with everyone. I have a Facebook page (Kitty Masters) that I use to share my content on Facebook. If you message Kitty Masters, you will not get a response. You can contact me through email at dicedicekitty@gmail.com or on my official blog Facebook page, here.

Closing

I hope that you find at least one thing you enjoy or that is of interest to you in my content. I’m so thankful that you visited my site and I appreciate all the likes, followers, and subscribers for taking that extra step and hitting those buttons. The bigger my sites get, the better variety of content I can provide!

If you’re looking for my old rating system, you can find it in my original intro article, here. I have retired that rating system and now do an Opinion and Strategy section instead.
