ace of spades is overpowered plz nerf Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

hi i am here to talk to you about a possible game design flaw for all 3 card games: poker, spades and harts.

they are all fun and enjoyable games but one major thing sticks out in all 3: the ace of spades.

in all 3 games it trumps almost every other card. like in harts if u pass your opponent the ace of spades they can get the queen of spades which is 13 points which is alot. in spades is like a guaranteed trick or w/e u call it. and in poker its 1 of the strongest cards and u have a chance of getting an unbeatable hand with it. and u have the same chance of getting it as any other card so its obviously stronger then the other cards in the deck


for example in this pic both ppl got a royal flush



if the ace of spades wasnt there the person with the better hand would've won (in this example its the girl with the red hair) as you can see the card raised the weaker hand to the same level as the stronger hand so because of that the person that was supposed to win didnt and the loser got a break

I edited out the names cuz i didnt ask there permission or anything and i dont wanna get banned even tho my forum account is completely anonymous


its obviously overpowered compared to another card like the 5 of clubs and its not like it takes more skill to use it or anything

so to make the game more balanced we need to nerf this card. 3 O's plz change the rools so the ace of spades will be weaker and less powerful compared to the other cards.

thx


PS: the 5 of clubs is underpowered. plz make it stronger. maybe add an extra 0?

I agree with you especially in poker in the example you quoted.

Suits don't mean anything in Poker so you should get rid of all the As.

But then the Kings would be overpowered, they would be as strong as the As were, so get rid of them as well.

Use the same logic to get rid of Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4 and 3.

This would leave you with the 2s all equally powered but not enough to play with.

The only solution is to get rid of poker completely :-P (and as thesame arguemnts apply IRL as well as YPP)

Suit's don't matter? Have you ever played poker before? >_> or was that a joke also? As I'm quite sure 3 of the top 5 hand's are suit related.

You make up a new card using a piece of paper and a crayon. No one would be the wiser.

I'm more curious about that other pirate on the table whose name you didn't black out. You had an alt of your own on the same table? Very naughty!
