Artifact

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

alpha gameplay leaked.





thoughts? It looks pretty interesting, and Gabe Newell confirmed at a press release that cards will be tradeable between players! that's a pretty big deal.

I'm less interested in this than I was at the time I made this thread but it's still worth a check. I'm not going to get it at launch, I want to see how the meta settles and wait for the reviews/in depth gameplay analysis before committing

I'm enjoying it quite a lot. The only part of it that was really called a dumpster fire afaik was the pricing model, but most of the things people were complaining about (in particular, the lack of a free draft mode and the fact that starter cards in packs were worthless) have been addressed. The pricing model is reasonable at this point, but we'll see what things look like when the steam market for cards launches after the beta.

I've been playing pretty much entirely expert phantom draft gauntlets. Been doing quite well. I've seen a pretty wide variety of things people have been trying in draft, including some monocolor and 4-color decks (I'm even running a 4-color deck right now, and it's 2-0 so far). Seems like there's a pretty wide variety of things that can work. The game is similar to dota in a sort of staggering number of ways, the most poignant of which IMO is that after a game it can be really difficult to tell why you won or lost, but on close examination it's usually pretty easy to spot a bunch of mistakes that both sides made.

Genuinely kind of surprised, I kind of thought that Valve ceased making games eons ago. This game could be interesting but unsurprisingly I think Valve will be milking wallets dry of all those that play it. That fact that it costs $26.99 CAD, AND you have pay more money for cards you can't seem to reliably acquire for free, is pretty dumb. Also not surprised the game will likely have inter-player trading, as that is a staple among other Valve titles, and I'll be even less surprised if said trading becomes crazy abusive like it is in CSGO.

They added a level up system and a way for people to earn cards in new updates.

I think I might buy it next month!

First thoughts about the game it's briliant

First results: loss for 5 hours streight and then I realized I can just oblitrate the enemy with a neat blue deck eventhough I'm the unluciest person who ever started artifact and then I started winning.

A crystal maiden zeus sky luna and ogre deck is brilant. you have spells that can just remove everything enemy has - and then the KABOOM on the enemy tower

and ogre makes more of them and CM gives you extra mana. It's just briliant!
