Quote From Bystekhilcar
I mean, that's not so much an opinion as a value judgment as to the amount being taken from any given game; it's based on objective facts, after all. And for the record, I would argue it's incorrect as a statement. T
Point well taken. I think my mistake was using the term "copycat" as that undoubtedly creates a sense of negativity. I understand that almost any card game created at this point will bear some resemblance to one or more of the card games that preceded it. However, while my opinion may be factually incorrect, it is still my opinion and I stand by it. For all we know, I might be the only person who played the game and felt like 'been there, done that'. Once again, this may not be the game for me; but hopefully there are many people who play it and enjoy it.
I played for a few hours today, but the game didn't do it for me. I have a lot of time and money invested into both HS and MtGA and I enjoy playing each of them for different reasons. I still wanted to try LoR to see what all the hype was about.
I've been playing Magic for 10 years in all sorts of different formats and started playing Hearthstone shortly after the Beta. In my opinion, LoR felt more like a copycat game than it's own product. I'm sure many people with disagree with that statement, and that's fine. Not all games will appeal to all people. With that said, I'm not going to delete it. I will give it another try, maybe in a few days, and see if I overlooked something about the game that would interest me.
Personally I hope the game succeeds for two reasons. Some people don't enjoy HS or Magic (or any other card game out there) and this could be the game that works for them. The other reason is to give HS and Arena a kick in the butt. I feel like they could use some competition. There have been a lot of cards games that were supposed to be the next "HS killer" and none succeeded. Don't get me wrong, I don't want HS to die or anything. However, some worthwhile competition certainly wouldn't be a bad thing to help push all three games to their full potential.
