Also, Guild Banks are for storing decks for use between guild members.

EDIT:
Game is built in Unity.

Player-customized, sponsored, and controlled leagues.

You're right, these have been said/hinted already but are now official :)

The leagues will be past release tho.

Had fun listening to the podcast. I think I have been severely undervaluing / underestimating the PVE content. Cannot wait for Alpha!

I guess it makes sense.

PvP doesn't exactly require a whole lot of thought into the game modes, because almost every tournament type you can dream of probably already exists for another TCGs.

Meanwhile...they've had ~1-2 years to come up with ideas for PvE. The relatively low cost of developing an idea from concept to a dungeon for this genre means they can try out wackier ideas.

I just listened to the Podcast, are the Arena exclusive cards trade able? I can imagine people trading or buying those cards, or even making second accounts for them.

Squirrels or Dinosaurs... that is the question!

Giant fire-breathing squirrels it is!

Dinosaurs are cool, but they're old hat. Giant Squirrels...the possibilities for water skiing alone are endless.

I am really torn, I loved dinosaurs as a kid, but if the Squirrel Titan art is what I am envisioning, I will probably have to go Squirrel Titans.

As someone else said previously, I too have underestimated the content they have planned for PvE. It sounds amazing!

No they aren't, on an account level you get one or the other. He was very clear that this meant it would mean you could never get all the pve cards. I think he announced this on purpose now to get the collect them all players used to the fact. It lead into his talk about how he still wants to do exclusives in some way despite the people who didn't like the idea with the t-shirts.

What an awesome interview, a huge data dump that answered a lot of questions floating around here. I'm listening to it again right now...

Which is annoying because they've stated that everything minus account specific bonuses are tradable. *shrug* C'est la vie.

And mercenaries, which is likely what the exclusive from the arena will be...

I haven't listened to the podcast yet, but every keeps say Arena cards. Not Arena Mercs. Which is why I said that.

You get a deck that is pre built for you based on the side you pick and then add cards to it throughout the arena challenge that you unlock as you progress through it. The final reward is an exclusive merc. I don't think the arena deck is useable outside the arena.
