Custom game (Auto-Chess?), mobile, or something for Artifact I guess.

Can't remember the last time I wasn't disappointed by a Valve announcement so I'll just ignore it for now.

Maybe their attempt at AutoChess since the mod team went with their own thing.

My disdain for auto-chess aside, I don't know how I'd feel about Valve making their own version of auto chess without the mod devs on board, the modders are doing their own thing now so I'd just forget about it and keep doing different things if I was Valve.

I think they'd catch a lot of flak if they came out with an auto-chess ripoff.

Would they really want to put more money into Artifact though? Right now it has 14 viewers on Twitch….

DOTA being Valve's new golden child is a rather unexpected turn in the grand scheme of things.

The E3 Dolan meme with "everything was battle royale" except it's at Valve and everything was DOTA.

I only expect disapointment and be left wondering why the manpower wasn't used to get us more than 1-2 new hero per year.

A VR exclusive Artifact expansion.

But no, I'm guessing it's an official Auto Chess game like a lot of people are saying. As much as I'd like them to fix Artifact, I hope that Valave wouldn't try announcing more Artifact news at TI after how poorly that went last time. And Artifact needs a lot more than just an expansion to fix it anyway.

I think it's something mobile related since the Artifact mobile port is probably scrapped. I'd be surprised if it ends up being something else.
