Two 0-2 drafts today, luck has deserted me in pack openings
That was good. I don't get the point in having the cameras if the players are just sitting there doing absolutely nothing. You can tell Swim wants to say things sometimes but knows it's pointless.
It's disappointing, Valve isn't announcing shit
Yeah I started following Wykrhm because he tweeted a couple Artifact things then all of a sudden that stopped.
Man, I couldn't remember if I was even following @wykrhm (turns out I am), he's been that quiet.
Cheers, I'll bookmark it and check it every few days.
Mostly feel the same, even down to just hitting 16 - I was hoping my last three packs would at least give me a ToT, but noooooooo... Not feeling like spending the local equivalent of, what, 15 bucks just to make a Red deck when there's no guarantee I''ll even be playing it in 6 months. That's money I could put towards Sekiro.Hit level 16 and with that my last pack rewards. Wanted to buy the rest of the cards after that, but I don't feel rewarding a month of radio silence by Valve.
They better have something meaningful cooking that they can release before the month is over.
Overall the first expansion is gonna make or brake it for me. Will probably a good snapshot of where the game is going, both in gameplay and support.
Yeah, he tweeted a lot the last couple days because of the TI doc that came out and some Dota tourney. I had notifications on for him and had to turn it off lol
Pretty much. It’s the same with Keyforge and that game is a huge success. He will probably return for the first few expansions though.That's expected, isn't that what Garfield does? Make a new game and move on.
Anyway it would be nice if Valve started to communicate, stuff like: first expansion is coming in X month(giving a wide timeline in case there's hiccups), btw that Million dollar tournament is still happening, we are working on X bug or adding x feature. Radio silence is leaving me disappointed...
Prolly get info dump next week after the Dota Major
iirc, CS:GO was developed by Hidden Path and Valve, but Valve took over completely after the initial release fell flat, with tons of complaints from players. It's why I'm not counting Artifact out yet - CS:GO at release and CS:GO 6 months after release were already different games.
Yeah. On the one hand boo, no more rewards. On the other, I'm back to just playing because I enjoy the gameplay loop. Last night my wife asked me a question and I completely forgot about the game I was playing for a good couple of minutes. Still almost won, but because I wasn't stressing about levelling up, I just shrugged.
I find applying this attitude to Valve games weird. Every game they've released, they've supported for at least a year, I think, whether it's fixes or actual content. With some having support that's gone above-and-beyond what any other dev would do - CS:GO, for example, got a Battle Royale update at Christmas, which was no small thing.
That's a whoooole lot of cards to not have any blue card draw lol"ohhhh wooooo... I'm really quite drunk! Let's play Artifact! Yeah! That makes sense!!!111!!"
*wins at Mana Turn 7, Lane 2.*
Yeah, fuck this noise. I legit want to run in proper tournaments, because I'm so drunk, and I can still wipe the floor using this deck. Soz people who're my opponents, but yer basic.
Yeah, I was dithering about adding a couple of Foresights, but currently it's amazingly consistent - I get the cards I need, roughly when I need them. There's been, like, 1 game in the past week where I needed an Echo Slam but I didn't draw it in time. Every other game I've lost, it's because I was just outplayed (one person did 81 damage to the Ancient in one round, for instance, and I didn't see it coming, so didn't place a Hero there at the start of round).
Yeah, I wasn't really getting much of this early on when people were talking about it, but in the last week it's gotten much worse. I don't know if it's me getting to a certain rank or what. Think I'm low 40s?
I'd narrow it to either Tinker or Sniper, and personally I'd choose Sniper. I feel Assassinate is better than March of the Machines, and Sniper's 5 damage to an enemy is marginally better than Tinker's 3 and Stun - the chance of outright killing an enemy is more useful than just stunning it for a round.I enjoy the challenge of constructing decks, and I'm trying to make a competitive rainbow deck. So far, I've settled on Axe, LC, Kanna and Drow. I'm trying to decide which black hero card to put in. I've tried PA but I don't think she fits. The deck plays like ramp/control and PA probably fits better in an aggro deck.
I'm debating between Lich, Tinker or Sniper.
Yeah, I've tried Lich and Tinker so far. I haven't found much synergy with either. Tinker feels too squishy and I haven't really seen many opponents go wide (which is where March of the Machines' has maximal utility IMO, otherwise, it's not that great). Lich's Chain Frost feels a little too situational and I haven't found the right 5 or so cards to splash with him.I'd narrow it to either Tinker or Sniper, and personally I'd choose Sniper. I feel Assassinate is better than March of the Machines, and Sniper's 5 damage to an enemy is marginally better than Tinker's 3 and Stun - the chance of outright killing an enemy is more useful than just stunning it for a round.
