    Hi, we are glad that you are excited! :) We dont have an exact eta just yet, still working on the proper tools for it. We want to have a dedicated system for it to make things more fair than before and just the whole experience to feel even better, so hang on for a little while longer ;-)

    This might be difficult to make, but it would be cool if we could have a feature on the site that allowed you to make and store your own custom cards. I would be a lot simpler than going onto one site to make the card, then somewhere else to store the card, then back to here and post it. I think it would make the competition more inviting if we could do the entire thing here.

    I agree ;-)

    Do you think it would be something that might be implemented in the future?

    Making your own cards would be pretty complicated and HearthCards already exists. I'd say keep the creation of the cards there (no need to re-invent the wheel) but allow storing of cards here on the forum. Maybe you could even make it so you only need to give the URL of the finalized card on HearthCards and the forum will attempt to read/download the image data from there (and you can then ofcourse only send a valid HearthCards URL).

    That way the only thing you'd have to do is create the card on HearthCards as you normally would and give the finalized URL to the forum here when posting. You could manage some restrictions here and there to avoid any blatant abuse. (no need to allow hotlinking for example since the stored card should only be displayed on these forums anyway)

    Just a thought, not sure if HearthCards would allow the Out of Cards server to read their card image URLs though.

    So... Demon Hunter... How does this affect the class creation Competitions? Or are they getting fused into one, where you must design an expansion that also introduces a new class?

    And not to be a nag, but any idea when the big competitions are coming back?

    We are working on preparing a Big Comp, but no ETA right now. Demon Hunter shouldnt present any problems for these, if anything, it might make the class comps a bit easier, depending on how we are going to go about it. Class competitions are going to get more robust with each HS set released as has been the case in the past, so eventually something will have to be done for the sake of the comp's length and the amount of cards needed to be designed. It is going to take more and more time and work to design a new class, if you would like to design full set of cards from each expansion.

    But like i said, we do have something planned, so stay tuned :)
