Rorcraft!

Rorie!

Edited by Morningstar

An European BETA would be appreciated.

Edited by Darthozzan

This game is really awesome =D Been playing it since Day 1 of the beta, and it's really addictive. I think this could be really big for Blizzard

Oh man, an omnipresent and omniscient Vinny. How did he overthrow Drew?

Card games only remind me of getting beat up by the bigger nerds.

All your favorite character-assassinated figures from your Warcraft-playing days in card form!

Been a long time (road?) since I've been interested in anything Warcraft.

JUST LET ME IN BLIZZ

Edited by Aviar

I'm just wondering whether this game will have the staying power of a Magic: The Gathering or if it will just be addictive for a couple of weeks and then everyone will move on. I'm really interested in playing this though.

Scared to watch this. I don't think my hearth can manage getting in on CCG's now when I finally caught the Dota-bug.

Edited by OneKillWonder_

Call me boring, but I really like the more traditional look and presentation of SolForge more, as well as its card art. However, Hearthstone seems much more engaging as a game.

Watching him retire his Arena deck after one win was difficult to watch. I know it was for the sake of the QuickLook, but geez.

Edited by JasonLeeson

SO WANT TO PLAY THIS!! Never even played a card game before except Final Fantasy 8's 'Triple Triad'.

Posted by Brake

I got Magic The Gathering 2013 last year for iPad and ended up really liking it. Never played a card game before. This seems super cool. I'll definitely get it when it comes out.

Starting off with Minnie the Moocher? Hot dang.

Wow, Brad knows a lot of the Warcraft lore. I played a ton of WoW up to the end of Cataclysm and I don't think I know who most of those Heroes are by memory.

Posted by shadowdrone

I am super excited to play this! I am however not like one of these super-intense fucks that hounds twitter or peoples streams for keys. I'll wait until it goes open beta, or just releases outright.

I think it's sort of a necessary evil. A card game on its own may note appeal to as many people as the extremely well produced and visually engaging one would. So long as there is a solid card came at the base of it, I think the presentation only works in its favour

Think I would rather just play Magic the Gathering or Scrolls if I had to choose. Strange how long Magic Online have been around but somehow Wizards couldn't manage to create one for IOS.

Now obviously that ship have sailed.

Yep, that certainly was slightly distressing. Rorie seemed like he hadn't figured out what Arena mode is at all yet. Based on TotalBiscuit's videos I gathered that you pay 2$ for a chance at it. You draft a deck from random cards you're only allowed to use for this one Arena run. You play opponents until you lose three games (or reach a number of max wins). You get rewards based on how much you won.

Maybe he played a tutorial freebie run though since he didn't seem to remember having drafted that deck. That or press accounts get freebies, who knows. The game looks really interesting, nice mana system, good concept with the permanent hero abilities and glorious presentation. The card design and visual style is even quite a bit less shit than the post-Warcraft 2 cartoon style (to my eyes).

One quick note concerning Brad's "pay to win" question. Every CCG that has rarer, superior cards you get from payed booster packs is pay to win, I think. Though maybe the matchmaking can mitigate some of that. I'm also glad to see you can save up for specific single cards in Hearthstone though. That's almost always the better way to get good CCG decks. Buying boosters for anything other than getting that first taste and a starting card pool or drafting usually ends up being a sucker's move.

Anyone else recognize the "Handle it" voice line from the Raid Leader card? Love these references.

Posted by Vuud

You know the only fantasy card game I ever loved was Arcomage. This takes me back. Does anyone want to play some time?

Edited by xite

The mechanics are so simple for a card game that it borders on facebook level of depth. Nice production quality though. Got me interested in CCGs again.

Edited by Beaudacious

Watching this video I've learned that watching CCG quicklooks is super frustrating.

Looks pretty fun but I'm always wary about free to play games that may lean towards being pay 2 win.

I don't remember many of the Heroes being in WoW, especially Rexxar. I remember using him in War3. That game seems to be where most of this came from.

Posted by Kanuuna

I wasn't really paying much attention to this until I watched Kripp play this on his stream earlier today.

This looks so good. Free-To-Play seems like the right fit, too. I'm not big into TGC stuff either, but all of this just looks delicious from a long-time (and ex-)WoW player's perspective.

Edited by Addfwyn

@vessel28: You don't really have to spend much. I threw $10 into buying some boosters, but if you're good at arena you can use your arena winnings to keep playing arena and winning packs.

Posted by ebbsnone

Came into this Quick Look thinking I would never want to play a WoW card game.

Left it very much wanting to.

They actually went out of their way to not make it that. You can craft any card in the game and the only thing you can really buy with real money is extra packs. I can't wait to play a pay-2-play pc tgc that actually has production values and strategy cough *solforge* cough.

They've all been in World of Warcraft in some form. Rexxar in particular used to wander around Desolace and was part of the Horde's quest line to get the key to Onyxia's lair. As of Burning Crusade he's in Blade's Edge Mountains in Outland.

Stop giving Rorie drugs just before the quick look.

Edited by Ataribomb

I want into this beta so bad. What do you want from me, Blizz? Want me to buy your Diablo expansion? Fine. Hell, I'll even re-up for WoW if that's what it takes. Just let me play your silly virtual card game.

Rorie was on some trucker speed when they filmed this one!

Edited by CrimsonJester

Watching Rorie is like watching a person on Meth with ADD, think I got motion sickness watching his mouse movement.

Edited by Ares42

Good thing they brought in Rorie as he has a clue about playing the game, although for anyone not accostumed to card games this QL is probably pretty hard to follow :P

Ok, so its not just me ... Solforge is really dependent on pure luck, right? Whoever puts the biggest cards in his/her deck wins? ... Or am I crazy?

Looks good, but I'm super bummed that they cancelled the excellent Warcraft CCG for this.

Not at all. It's definitely simpler than MtG in terms of complexity of cards but there is still a lot of decision making and room for good and bad plays. The ability to attack minions directly and do attacks and play spells in any order you like it adds a lot.

Rexxar has a long quest line in Blade's Edge Mountains.
