c Galen

Released on Friday 10/09/10

The problem with time vortexes is that the technology is still very new and despite what some would have you believe, not everything works quite as it should. Nevertheless, stabilizing a vortex and ensuring that those who use it don’t end up scattered over 4 or 5 different dimensions is no mean feat. But fortunately, Galen is up to the job.

First development of the 3 of this character’s different developments:

    5Power = Power Opp
    5Defeat: Recover 2 Pillz Out Of 3

Ability of Galen:

Power = Power Opp

Galen has equal Power to their opponent. This number only takes into account the figure shown on the opponent’s card and does not include changes connected to an Ability or a Bonus. If the Ability is blocked, the character’s Power is equal to that shown on their card.



Defeat: Recover 2 Pillz Out Of 3

If Vortex loses the fight, at the start of the next round the player controlling Vortex will receive 2/3 of the Pillz placed on Vortex, rounded down to the nearest unit, with a minimum of 1.

Galen - 5/5 with power = opp power (ability) and Defeat: Recover 2 pills out of 3 (bonus)

- 5 damage (7 with fury) is very nice for a 3*.
- Against certain opponents, Galen can effectively combat them by tying with their power and then bluff them with the Defeatness or not.
- IF he loses in defeat, he gets pills back, which is nice.
- He has pros.

- In most situations, his power = opp power doesn't work very well. Power manipulation, attack manipulation, SoA, they all ruin the delicate balance that Galen has.

Overall: 5/10. I'm sorry this review is short, but there isn't much to say about Galen. Galen has the ability to deal out that 5 damage if your opponent thinks you were bluffing with his and in reality, you overpill. But temporary tricks like that aren't rely useful for a deck. Deea and Sunder are much more reliable and can abuse Defeat better. Sorry Galen bro, you gots to go.

Dr.Ido, why punish such a small mistake? The most possible damage that could be done, is to be played as a filler in Elo. Nothing more. Punishment? You guys sound very serious about not such a big deal in my opinion.

Lovhak's War Journal

Entry #15

October 24, 2010

Subject: Galen

Our Vortex technology is nifty, but isn't perfect. Take the Vortex, for example. We MUST have a engineer in order for them to function properly, and here in the past, Galen is our man.
The problem is though, Galen isn't exactly sane. He is a failed war surgeon, who every now and again, liked to "expirement" with patients who weren't terminal. That is a bad thing. Despite that, Dregn discovered that Galen originally had a knack for engineering, and decided to spare his life at the last moment, the only real thing saving him is his family ties.
He most certainly is a little creepy. He doesn't seem to mind having his brain throb uncovered. Not sure that's a good idea.
I do question his placement here. Neloe told me she saw Galen working with Embolt on some poor soul's deceased body, so i'm pretty sure he is still a sick creature.
Even so, Galen does his specified job well. Would help if he wasn't completely insane, but...it seems a few of the Vortex members are almost as insane.

Galen: a engineer in the art of perfecting the perfect time Vortex.

After aproaching him he began to rant about how the clint city teams were on to him and how he would be rivaled by a human named Kyle. I began to realise that Galen had dedicated his life to the research of time Vortex engineering and how it has grown into a obsession, this intial observation made me realise that the studies of time Vortex engineering had drove Galen mad and had absorb is spirit into time and space...

hope you enjoyed it rate up for more :thumbsup:

We made a mistake when we released him, the ability was triggered at level 1. We changed it in a few seconds but some of you may have seen it. Be assured that the person who made this mistake will be punished.

5/5 3*
power = opp power (ability)
Defeat: Recover 2 pills out of 3 (bonus)

-If you sacrifice him you get 1 pill (usually)
-5 damage (7 with fury) is decent.
-Can win against certain characters

- Killed by Attack and Power manipulation and SOA (that is like half of UR)

Overall: D
Galen is bad (sorry to say). He can do his 5 damage is you play him against the right characters but usually he can't. I would use Deea and Sunder over Galen any day of the week. I am sorry but I do not like Galen at all and do not recommend for anyone to buy him unless you are completing you collection.
