Ah, I was only familiar with set launches, I never really got hard into yu-gi-oh and this was also many years ago. I had done a quick Google to look at their set release schedule and assumed that was the total story. Thanks for the correction
The Undying makes me want to flip tables every time I see it in play.
This is all SUPER exciting. As link said (maybe I should have responded) the Gauntlets are akin to Tavern Brawls in Hearthstone which is such a good idea for card games. A weekly mode that has a new spin on things is awesome. I just hope they do fewer repeats than Hearthstone does.
They're going to have the fastest card pool updates when compared to the other big games. Hearthstone gives us new cards every 4 months, Magic, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh are all roughly every 3 months. Granted, the updates appear to be smaller in size, but that is incredibly healthy for the game and the meta. That paired with Riot actively pushing a balance update every month, we've got some seriously awesome potential.
I'm just really hoping we get Arcade-themed card styles instead of just animation on top of the current cards. Change the art please and just give people the option to disable card styles entirely on the client-side so newer players won't get confused as much.
We'll call that the super-exclusive Alpha :P
Yeah. I really don't understand why they gave that to us when we were about to have this come out. Unless they're just picking Tavern Brawls at random out of a hat.
You are incredibly ignorant and honestly, if this is your thought process, please don't come back. I don't care how bad of an outcome that may be for the website, this simply isn't the type of community we're building.
These types of words and when they get spread by morons is the reason why people are out visiting beaches and having house parties. They take uneducated responses as facts and then end up doing damage.
Yes, shit sucks for a lot of people and some need more help than others to get through it. Stay in touch with your friends and family to make sure people are doing alright. There's plenty of online resources for people that need mental help, they're a Google search away.
Stop. Spreading. Retardation.
There was an issue when the winner was selected and it had selected you as the winner when it was not meant to be the case.
You still having the achievement notification is on me - I didn't wipe it from the database. Sorry about that!
Yup, I'm getting sucked into Lightning Bolts.
I am in love with the addition of Arcade themed stuff!
I want all the showcases, damn.
I wish I knew - Valve hasn't specifically commented on it to my knowledge. Surely though, they must be going F2P and giving everyone who bought the game previously something as compensation (maybe even a refund). I can't see this game having a decent audience if it remains a buy-in that also requires grinding to get the cards.
That's awesome! Congrats!
Nothing puts me above everyone else! I love how the chat is slow enough you can actually converse with people. Never the case when Esports are going on or huge reveal days.
The dog barking got a great chat reaction though!

This will definitely make me hit my pity timer... I just don't know if I want to open them yet. They're so pretty :D
Yeah, this is going to be a very tough go for Valve. I just can't see how people are going to jump into the space when Runeterra exists. When it was just Hearthstone and MTG, there was room for improvement. Riot has hit the nail on the head and sealed everyone's coffins as far as I'm concerned.
Always will keep an open mind because if a better game comes along, the older titans can find new inspiration to improve, but yeah... very tough.
This was just one of the ideas thrown around for the September card back. We don't know if the other ones will ever happen.
This was one of the coolest pieces of content Blizzard has ever done. I'm hoping they will continue to build on this and open up some more development processes, letting the community watch.
Can't wait for the next two streams!
Yeah, a lot of the HS people always hop into the new games early on for the viewership spike - its a wonderful idea!
I would love to see a lot more activity on the Runeterra stream side of things, though, the game is still pretty small compared to HS and event MTGA.
