Any ideas how early they will announce set 4 date? Days, week, or weeks before the set comes out?

Their new stance on giving out as little information as possible makes me worried I'll completely miss it if I don't check often.

I'd check the announcement thread here: http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=48672

There was a big debate about that. They aren't really saying anything until it's done and I won't rehash the saltiness or debate that has followed, it makes for a good read on how they are approaching communication these days and how some staple members of the community have reacted to that change.

One to two weeks out. (https://www.hextcg.com/armies-of-myth-launch-date-714/)

Then they will delay it a week. (https://www.hextcg.com/armies-of-myth-launch-721/)

It is a bit of a tragedy when that other game can announce and hit dates more than half a year out. (http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/announcing-eldritch-moon-2016-02-08)

Their past history shows we'll get about a weeks notice. Just follow Friday updates, no chance the release date gets past you if at least read that email.

About a one week notice has been the norm for the past 2 sets and some of the other features (arena/campaign). Their stance on giving out information isn't a new position by the way. Been that way since closed beta. Alpha was more open but that was slightly different.

The other game is 25 years old. They've gotten good at it and have the support of Hasbro, the world's most powerful toy company.

Trust me, when it first launched they had issues too. Worse issues. They had to change the card design just to combat counterfeits.

Not at all... because I never advocated for tardiness here. Only stated that when Magic was in "college" it couldn't pass Algebra either.

You know how you can do this?

Have the set mechanically complete half a year out. Set 5 should be complete right this moment sans art, for any prayer of a two sets a year schedule coming true.

you would think people would get sick of typing out the same complaint everyday.

When they do the shutters will come down and we'll all move on to Hello Island Kitty Adventure instead.

IMO we will get Steam release next week 19. than 22. Primal Dawn announcement and 29. PD launch. I just hope it will be this month.

Launch would not happen on a Friday. Tuesday most likely, Thursday at the latest.

So we're speculating on the date of the announcement of the release date now?

Yes. And a couple more delay announcements until we start speculating on the date of the hype announcement for the announcement of when the set will maybe release.

This is a very roundabout way of trying to eke out an estimated release date.

Set 4 will be announced and released when they are ready to do so.

Please be patient.

There's another thread that exists if you want to speculate: http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=48483
