Oh they said they'd announce something at Pax East or w/e its called. This seems like a very niche market though. Fans of the Warcraft franchise who are also fans of card strategy type games. And MTG as well being the elephant in the room, I really doubt this is going to be that popular. Which is annoying, because I'd wish they'd spend their resources and time on either fixing balance issues in Starcraft 2 Hots or promoting eSports, as Riot and LoL are thoroughly killing it there.

Im not huge into this type of card game and not sure I would sit down at my PC to play this, but I can see myself casually playing this on a tablet. Looking forward to seeing the final product.

Oh come on...

Did you really need to come in here a bash a companies product which isn't even relevant to this one? The fact people get paid to play SC2 is pretty epic enough in itself.

Then you start a topic about the forum and the behaviour of its members...

Signed up for the beta, looks like it could be fun when given a chance.

Strangely enough I didn't bash and that sentence is enough in context with this topic since they were the ones who were claiming they have epic standards (Which isn't only said about this game) while their other games apart from this need fixing.

You're right, I apologise whole-heartedly.

Their games are clearly broken, I should've known better.

Thanks for those examples you provided, helped set me on the straight and narrow.

Clearly you haven't played SC2 and are just relying on the fact that "some 1%" of people playing it are getting paid and then come on with the sarcasm. I'll give you an hint, Terran.

But sure, sorry this isn't the right place for SC2 discussion and I'll move to the right place, I was just stating the fact they said in the video about their "Epic standard about games"

Same; for me card games are an occasionally-at-best sort of thing but I can see myself playing this on my Windows tablet, looks like an interesting diversion.

Your argument would have been a lot better if you said Diablo 3 instead of SC2.

I'm not even going to start on D3 since, like pointed out, this is not the place for it :)

I am not a card game fan. I tried to play Magic when it came to iPad, didn't last. Gameloft just released Order and Chaos Duels for iOS, which is a card game just like this one, and its done pretty well, but still couldn't get into it, but this one does look good as well. At least it helps bring those games to life

Signed up for the beta. We'll see if I get anything. I've been looking to get back into MTG so this definitely interests me.

As a huge fan of MTG with no one to play with (and no cards anymore :( ) I too would love to try this out if anyone has a spare beta key.
