Seems like Blizzard wants to gauge f2p with a virtual collectible card game:

All those studios working on 'Rage of Bahamut' clones are probably shitting themselves now.

I for one welcome Blizzard class production values to tablets.

Never really played Magic, so I guess that will make this seem somewhat fresh :o

Yeah but you guys are contractually obliged to say that, right?

Just announce your game already!

personally im not into this, or even remotely intrigued, except by the fact that they somehow managed to turn world of warcraft, probably the dorkiest thing I can imagine, into an even dorkier virtual card game.

that said, haters gonna hate~

I willllllllll modulate this slightly by saying that I hope someone does an art dump so I can see all the beautiful work that went into the game itself

So, am I seeing this right, this game runs on Unity Engine?

Magic the gathering: Duels of the planeswalkers was pretty fun so I can definitely see this one happening.

Battleforge also was semi-successful (at least profitable, just a small market); although it was a hybrid of RTS- TCG.

I'll see where this one goes :)

I dont like pay to win games, never has, never will.

And before you start arguing against this game being pay to win, then rest assured I also think magic the gathering is pay to win. Sure its all about building a deck and mastering the game, but before all that you have to actually "pay to win" (aka spend enough money to get the deck you want that is best in the current meta game).

Nicely spotted!

Dunno if it'll be pay to win, but if not, I'll surely play it.

Like FMP I'd love to see the beautiful art on the cards here, but I have no interest in a virtual "collectible" card game. It is literally pay-to-win and has been since Magic days. Should've left that in the dustbin of history where it belongs (particularly since these aren't even actual physical cards anyway, so there is no rarity)

Blizzard loved me enough to give me one a month back. I don't think you get given spares, though? I'd hand them out here otherwise.

Been playing this a loooooooooot, though. It's fucking awesome. This almost makes up for Diablo 3. Almost.
