Thread: Hoping for Set 4 before [insert month here]

  1. #11
    I really need the set this easter weekend. I have to reward myself for driving across Germany and visiting my complete family... I'd rather work than doing that

    BTW where is the March VIP Tournament?

    I thought that in Hex language April actually means May or later.

    (btw, they should make proper announcements or a timetable for releases)

    The thing is although CZE has grown significantly in number, they are still not big anough to compensate a big issue that arises shortly before a release, by just pulling a big bunch of people from another project to firefight. This is why they tend to give you a rough estimation insted of a fixed date which they might have to change.

    I personally would like to have fixed dates and if they have to be postponed - fine with an explanation. But that is just me. Most companies in the industry do it the way CZE does.

    Hell, which format is it now? VIP has been so downplayed lately that I have no idea where in the rotation we are now. I don't even know how long the current rotation will last for.

    Seconded. Just because they can state it... and if they miss the date, April Fools!

    That and it'd be hilarious since nobody would know if it was true or not.

    Not quite right. It is tradition that you can fool someone with anything on April the 1st. However it is not ok, to announce something on another day for April 1st already knowing it is a prank. Minor but important difference

    @Xenavire: it should be limited this time

    I was half joking, as I hope/guess they will reach the april release date, since the content is supposedly already finished. But... Hex tries to make a similar competitve scene as MTG does, and for that "set 4 maybe sometime in april and tournaments most likely later in 2016" kind of release dates won't do. (but these are fine for PvE content)

    This is a proper announcement (more than 3 monts before pre-release events):

    Also, a detailed article about the event, including videos about the new mechanics, plus basic things like "what is sealed":

    Honestly, i really wait for Set 4, as based on the cards spoiled, it looks like it will be a blast to play in limited.

    They tried giving estimates and inevitably got vociferous complaints when they missed them.
    I agree that it would be nicer to have the estimates and accept that they may well not be met but unfortunately the complaints about missed dates are much louder than the approval for having given the estimate (and possibly people feel more strongly) so the incentives are all for not announcing anything that isn't completely finished.

    Certainly when they announced that there would be a major announcement before PVE went live, the only thing they could have announced on that day without being a disappointment was the actual release date (or I suppose something completely off the radar like another 100k) -and that wasn't even the announcement they planned and then ended up not making.



    I am seeing a steady trickle of new players anyway but I don't know how many are coming or sticking.

    There won't be an 8 month wait every year and there may be more exciting things going on to distract you from the wait but it seems likely that you will know the new set is coming before it actually launches and so you will get an opportunity to be impatient -in fact I hope you will get to be impatient for a new set THREE TIMES each year!

    Any week after that won't work. How can we go back to 2D monitor games after Vive arrives?
