Thanks boot, Google translation aside, can people who know these languages weigh in on this thread on the general feel or new specifics in each of these articles? As my posts show, I barely have a command of the English language.

EDIT: The spanish one mostly (took years of classes to learn that language, only got to a semi-philosophical point of asking 'qual es el bano?' before finally giving up) as the rest that haven't been dissected already here seem to be re-hashes of 'PvE is coming to Hex last week of January'

I hope a French/English fluent speaker translates the French vid the amount of info from that is higher then any English press.

Wolf, the person who made that video for MOMcards (Mister Rollup) translated the important bits on that article's thread in the forum here.

If you stat it, they will kill it.

That tough encounter was spoiled in the MoMCards video around the 53 minute mark but I'd advise against ruining the surprise.

Of course if it has hp it's supposed to die not a munchkin are you? Lol I only like the board game but anyway. All this press is good for attention but what bout pressing the turn it on button...

Oh yeah, if it can be beat, it'll be beat, though I'm assuming it'll have a random encounter or be at the end of a [larger] dungeon, as my guess is most people will go with an infinite combo deck on turn one/two/three. Possible with forge of codec, an acorn, and x amount of attempts to get a god hand.

"The more players play the game, the more the AI engine learns. In the current game state if you play a Sapphire shard the AI will assume that there is an 82% chance that you have a Buccaneer in your deck, and the choices it makes will be based around that assumption. As more and more people play, the larger the AI’s knowledge of the Meta game will grow. This ultimately means that the game play is going to get more unique as more people play."

I love all the other articles as they are really positive perspectives of newbies (The RPGFan one was an extraordinarily impressive article for someone who didn't know the game going into it). The GZ is interesting as it's taken from more of a veteran perspective.

There iss so much press! I really hope Hex can keep up with the momentum all this press is generating and can make patches shortly after PVE and Set 4.

That's the one? I thought that was people talking about a really difficult one, not the difficult one. Can't wait to try it out.

Since you included momcards, I am guessing you are including community sites. We had our podcast out on Sunday with Neo who was able to attend the press event and play for a good 7 hours or so as well as interview with press there and get some details/impressions exclusive to the cast:

That MassivelyOP article is pretty good, and as a regular on their site I know it should get quite a bit of views. It looks like MJ's also going to be playing the tutorial on her featured stream soon too which should be cool.

HYPE!

it starts patching 7 hours and 20 minutes from now and it will be back up in 11 hours and 20 minutes ?

thats ... 7 am for me, so i can play non stop for the next 18 hours, YEAAAAAAAAAHAHHHHHHHH!!!!!

I think you misread something there... It starts patching in roughly 11 hours, and patches for 12, meaning you could play roughly around this time tomorrow, give or take delays or early finishes.

I've just read the Spanish article. Nothing really new there. They say the "world" map initially is mostly black and points appear as new areas are discovered.
It seems that they enjoyed their time trying the game, shame they only had a 2 hours trial, seems a bit short.
There seems to be some confusion about the free decks given for the campaign. They make it sound as if you could only play for free on two characters. We know that's not the case. The whole PVE experience will be free and it's up to you to combine the cards you can get your hands onto with multiple characters.

The two characters thing is old info; everyone gets 200 free cards now that can make up decks for all classes.

Great reads, thanks for the links.

I wonder if RPS were included to the party. I'd like to see their impressions as they're certainly likely to bring some critical mass to the game if they give it a glowing preview.

Thanks for the summary! Google translate was a bit crap on that one, so I didn't pick any of that up until you explained it.

Is this accurate?
"PvE raid content (which will be available at a later date) allows two or three players to join forces against AI enemies and earn rare drops that are both tradeable and usable in PvP."

Hadn't heard that before, but I'd assume they mean sleeves/AA cards.
