    Nice, the original Bard's Tale trilogy was a formative game for me back in the 80's, so I had backed the Bard's Tale IV Kickstarter the instant it launched. I had no idea that Brian Fargo was a Hex...

    Yes, and as I said, I'd like to believe that doubleback is still coming and will be awesome, but I don't have a lot of confidence that what we get will arrive any time soon, or will bear a lot of...

    I'm worried because it's really starting to smell like doublebacks are quietly being pushed into the "too hard" basket. It's been two years since the Kickstarter with absolutely zero sign of any...

    Indeed. I know Hearthstone doesn't get a lot of respect in these parts, but it's telling that its designers said that they found that their predictable one-more-mana-per-turn resource system needed...

    What if a tournament was being streamed to a large, excited audience? Wouldn't they be kinda pissed that the tournament didn't actually have a final because the two top players decided to share the...

    If you're coming from the angle of "the system is broken and needs to be fixed" I don't think you're ever likely to gain any traction with the developers.

    All I would say is, if there must be voice acting, put it lower on the priority list than all the dozens of features which were promised in the Kickstarter but have not even been started work on yet.

    I think the big distinction is between using a tool to automate the execution of your instructions, and using a tool to make decisions.

    That wasn't a very good idea. However I suspect the lack of outrage is because the devaluation was balanced against every single player getting an equal amount of free stuff, making it neutral for...

    Yeah that doesn't sound good. Of course you'll have competing priorities if you try to enforce both the Swiss "match players against players with the same win/loss count" and also a "match...

    Yep. Sadly a 2-man queue with "90p entry, winner gets a pack" is basically the same as announcing: "Packs now cost 180p in the store, unless you have no friends, in which case, they cost 200p still".

    I know that I am likely to lose round 1 before I even join the queue. I'm not good enough at drafting to have anywhere near a 50% chance of winning. :)

    It feels like this idea would just entrench the haves and the have-nots.

    Think: new PvE content is released, with new limited cards as drops.

    Who is most likely to get the drops? The...

    Double-backs and card-by-card leveling and achievements were the #1 feature that made me go "good goddamn, that's cool!" and back the Kickstarter.

    Agreed. Just describe it as a TCG, which costs money, but which (because it's digital, not cardboard) is able to give you a free introduction.
