    So, when you started reading the developer profiles? They made it sound like it was going to be a single-player RPG.

    Just about anytime I see AAA and RPG put together in the same sentence, I suspect it will suck.

    It must be weird to not know you're pissing away millions of dollars for no reason whatsoever, to give people who don't want it, a thing that has no demand.

    Yeah I said in another thread that the Chris Avellone tweet was going to be a magic the gathering game. I was wrong about that specific announcement (I assumed the mention of "Cryptic Tweet" was a hint that it was related to Cryptic the developer), but yeah, I heard rumblings about a MtG MMO a while back.

    This is a lie. Homelands was a thing so we have indeed experienced MTG that shitty.

    Not a fan of MMOs anyway but PWE?Cryptic is an almost instantaneous no. God, Neverwinter sucked, even before you added in their bullshit approach to F2P.

    Magic's core audience is hypersperg megautists who are completely fine with spending $40 on Mishra's Bauble, so they might be able to catch a couple of Asian whales to keep the whole thing afloat. But, like, I don't know if those guys give a single fuck about the 'lore' of 'Jace' and 'Nissa' and whatever other faggot shit you're going to run around shooting "Lightning Bolt" and "Remand" with cooldowns during.

    To be fair, the lore of MTG died when they stopped releasing novels with the editions.
    Everything you got now are occasional flavor texts and blog entries.
    And the planeswalkers not only messed up game balance, but the stories just as well :lol:

    Well, I'll surely give the game a try when it comes out. Definitely interested in how all the mechanics will be transported.

    So, basically then why the fuck should I care? Hey, look, it's like that thing you really liked but actually not at all. :retarded:

    Pretty much this:

    I am disappoint that I can only pick one of these choices. Where's my Banal + Shit + Boring option? The "None and All of the Above" is too vague!

    The TBS was apparently shit, but at least the concept was reasonable. No idea how they'll do an MMO but it can't be good.

    I really love single player TCG based video games with a plot (instead of gallery of opponents) and it's a shame we'll never get another one for Magic after the untranslated Dreamcast one, and Konami is too shit to make a good one for Yu-Gi-Oh anymore (and the last good one, Over the Nexus, apparently came out right before the TCG went to shit).

    So the obvious question here is if the gameplay will look anything like the card game, or if they are just going to re-skin Neverwinter. I think we all know the answer.

    Re-skin Neverwinter is my guess. Waiting to see what happens.
