Thread: Hex sued by MTG

    AKA Everyone go draft, buy packs, and enjoy the game!

    Yes, Richard Garfield patented tapping. The patent, by my reading, runs out on June 22 of this year (2014). Wizards went back and tacked on some other parts to that same patent, which you can read here. The patent covers just about everything you could imagine in a TCG. It covers building decks, casting spells, the process of trading with others and more.

    Wizards is saying that Hex violates a lot of its patents. Hex probably does. Here’s the problem:

    Those patent claims are beatable.
    Those patents need to be laughed out of court. They are absurdly broad and do indeed cover every facet of a TCG.

    Its even worse than you think. It doesn't look like the client has been updated in over 10 years, probably because it hasn't.

    This IS the updated client rofl. It replaced an even worse looking one last summer I believe, around the time I quite magic to back hex. So yeah, I will never give another penny to that greedy company that charges you triple what hex does for a 10x worse experience.

    Now that's something. I'm surprised some people here didn't play MtG and say the games are different. I've been playing Magic for close to 15 years now and well... the similarities are there, to say the least. I know nothing about law, but I'm afraid WotC is gonna tear Hex a new one with their team of ruthless lawyers.
