Blizzard and Valve ripping each other off is some kind of running gag at this point huh? Guess you can't ever get enough of that sweet sweet whale milk.

Of course Brad Muir would be working on this.

Well whatever I have no beef with the Valve-Blizzard Ouroboros.

The palpable despair flooding from that room gives me more joy than any legitimate Valve game ever could.

I think now I have actually 100% given up on Half Life 3 ever happening. I suppose there was still a 1% bit of hope left before, but it's gone now.

Either way I was disappointed, before the card game bit I immediately had "oh a destiny like game" in my head purely based on this image and the prior coloured variant of the logo denoting colour coded loot.

Card games the new MOBAs?

Feel like valve is late to this party UNLESS the card game is vastly different from hearthstone and carves it's own market out. Honestly it's a waste of Muir...

When Brad Muir was hired by them, I had a moment where I was kind of worried he wouldn't actually make any games and just make like, hats or some shit.
I have zero interest in any card game, but good for him he got to make something.

I remember when I used to be excited when Valve did something, they even soft announced those VR games a while back, and I just don't care. The silence and unfinished nature of Half-life was rubbish, they let their store flood with the most garbage of games (and developers) without caring, and now their latest game is another card game. Whoop-de-dooo. Gabe reminds me of George Lucas at this point, just let someone else take over because you're ruining everything.

I really want to know what everyone in that arena was expecting. That turn from anticipation to near total disappointment was harsh.

Don't forget they're still angling to bring paid mods back with zero oversight or support on their part!

I guess it made sense. Brad Muir loves Dota and Magic. 1+1=2

Random info from Day9 on stream:

There are three game boards that represent the lanes

You control 5 heroes, just like DotA

You can equip item cards on to the Heroes that you buy with gold

There are creeps that spawn every turn

You can play creature cards

Some cards are cast on the lane and have persistent effects on that lane

Each Hero has abilities like their DotA counterparts ("You can cast track on a Hero as Bounty Hunter and get extra Gold")

God forbid they actually showoff the game though. Valve being Valve, they have to be all obtuse and shit even at their own goddamn event. I mean...really? They just put out a "trailer" with the logo and name of the game. That doesn't exactly scream "this is a product we're confident in/one we believe will be out any time even remotely soon." Not that it matters I suppose since it is a Valve joint. The fact that they're putting out anything at this point is hype enough for most people. I want it to be great, but they could not have chosen a worse way to announce it.

Finally, all the mechanical obtuseness and opportunities for micro-transactions of DOTA and Heathstone rolled into one product! It's a gold mine I tell ya!

That reaction though... kinda amazing. It's like when Sony announced that AT&T would be the exclusive carrier for the Vita.

Does a DotA card game need such a grandiose, ethereal mystical logo, name and reveal? It's a fuckin card game, we already know what it's gonna be like, you don't have to hide it and be all hush hush about it.

That reaction is brutal, hilarious and completely justified. Everyone was on the same page in that room.

I don't see a problem with this, though it's entering quite the crowded field. I just don't know how you would announce this right now without causing immense disappointment. Maybe they should have had a blurb just saying, "Hey, we're making a DOTA card game. Details to follow."

Oh sweet baby Jesus! I don't think they could've possibly developed a product I could be less interested in!

That reaction was perfect, and very well deserved.

I've pretty much written off virtual ccgs, but Brad Muir is a cool dude that makes cool games, so I might check this out.

@dudeglove: Brad Muir likes Magic the gathering.

Will be interesting to see how it stacks up to hearthstone.

It being attached to the steam market could make this a lot less p2w. I rather buy 10 useful cards instead of buying 10 cardpacks. Decently liked hearthstone in the first month, but realized that as more cards were made, the p2w bullshit would take over.

What the fuck is wrong with Valve? They never have to worry about money again yet they only make games designed around making money?

Why else would any big company make a game?

If this isn't about money, it's about finding a way to have DotA brand exposure on smartphones. Can't fit in a game of DotA 2 before your flight? Now you can enjoy all of your favourite heroes and items 24/7 on your phone!

Relax, they're serving an audience: you may not, but a lot of people like card games. I include myself there; I'm much more excited to see what this is than I would be interested in a new Half Life at this point. Half of the reactions in this thread are really beyond the pale.

Sorry but I imagine you are on a one man island with that opinion. Another card game is super boring right now.

Uh huh. That's, like, your opinion and stuff. I'd find another FPS super boring right now.
