    Can't tell if CZE is serious. I mean, we can't even trade cards yet. Pve hasn't been released. The keep system isn't anywhere, and the game is still in closed beta...and they intend on releasing a second set??? Is that their way of saying, "hey, open beta, august"? This seems way too rushed to be a good idea.

    Do we have any guesses on tunneling? Sounds like maybe you can put them into play attacking after blockers are declared or something like that?

    It does seem a funny time to be expanding, but I shall make the baseless assumption this indicates PvE might be closer than expected...

    @ cferejohn
    Maybe - but only if they are restricted to only attacking blockers, otherwise it's just a direct damage spell with a troop attached.
    Being played as a quick action is only a minor gem ability, so it wouldn't throw out troop costs any more than flying, etc.

    This kind of game relies on new sets every few months to keep things fresh. Plus, they need to make money and I'm guessing that they won't be selling much Set 1 once trading is in and due to the KS supply it becomes a lot cheaper to buy packs from the AH than the store.

    So I think the timing is about right. They'll probably be launching open beta around the same time as well.

    They better have a time machine hidden somewhere and have the full game ready by then, otherwise Hex will never get any new players with many sets out when Hex leaves Beta...

    I imagine all 20 (?) previews will be from set 2 now, since PvE ones would rather give away story elements - unless any interviews about PvE are impending!

    Normally I would totally agree. A normal tcg needs sets. But that's a finished one. Not one that has half of its features unreleased. I just expected there to be an opportunity for new players to come in for a few months and play set 1 before set 2 is released. And jumping into set 2 without pve would be a poor decision for the healthy development of the game and it's ability to attract a huge audience that we don't want to alienate because they're already behind before the game kicks off.
