I'm afraid that is not going to happen. This tool tracks each individual player, and *not* groups. A player may not have more than 3 heroes on a quest.

All the math and underlying comparisons is made with that premise and this is not something that is going to changed (or is even able to be changed at this point). It is easy, however, to log multi-player games by just logging each player as its own Quest.  

We may be able to create a visible "link" between the logged Quests for a player to indicate that they were part of the same game group, I will look into this for upgrades but cannot promise this will happen.

Cool stuff. Like Fatmouse, I hope this means the return of rankings for the other LCGs, or even a casual tracker like this. Just something so we can compare ourselves to each other again.

 This doesnt' appear to work in Chrome.  The log quest button doesn't do anything

Thanks for the great tool.

I would also like to have the opportunity of logging up to 12 heroes (= four player game) or at least six heroes (= two player game)

At the moment not all images are shown!

It is magic, stunning, beautiful, and great.

I'm going to wait to use this until I am a good enough player that I don't fail every time. I don't need to be reminded that I have 0% on the second and third quests.

Thank you FFG for making this !

I really like this idea.  Up to now I have been recording this information in a notebook.

I would also like it if there was the ability to add more than 3 heroes.  I have played several solo games with 2 decks and would like to record them accurately.

My firefox works fine. As for number of heroes just put the 3 you wanna put. It really makes no difference.

When I used the Firefox browser, the 'log quest' button didn't work.  I had no problems when I used Chrome instead.

 How about an iPhone app to do this logging? Way more convenient and accessible :)

Published: 5/28/2011 12:47:25 AM

 Well that's great, but I often play solo with 6 heroes (like 2 player game) and if I understand tutorial corectly, I can only write 3 heroes on my Quest Log. Could this be changed?
