This isn't "Titan" right?

Someone tell me this isn't the big reveal we've been waiting for. Titan is still in development and this is just some extra game no one knew about, right?

    I would have prefered an online version of the WoW TCg but it looks very good.

    And no this isnt Titan, its Blizzard moving into a new market.

    Whew. Okay. I need my coffee before I read the news. 

     

    They kept this one pretty quiet.

    I play the TCG and, from what I've seen so far, this is nothing like the current TCG.

    And the TCG is a licensed product, formerly to Upper Deck, currently to Cryptozoic. This is an in-house project.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    Looks great and seems to be a Pokemon TCG type game. I wonder if they can integrate the game into WoW. That would be really nice for taverns and, well, anywhere else.

    It sounds like you're implying the demographic of a digital TCG is exactly the same people that already buy the real-world TCG, and that only the existing real-world TCG players would consider buying a digital TCG. That's...pretty far off the mark.

    I would imagine the majority of sales on thw WoW TCG are from people looking for the loot cards

    Sounds like a big stretch to me.  No doubt WOW players going for loot cards is part of their business plan, but more than 50% of it?  Doubt it.

    CCGs are just too dangerous for my personality type - I pretty much have to take "avoid at all costs" stand on them.

  • f1sebf1seb Member Posts: 192 Uncommon

    Seems like this game would be perfect on mobile phones and tablets.  Makes sense for them to be delving into that type of market.  But not something I'd be interested in.

     

    Didn't Square Enix have something like this with Tetra Master or something a while ago?

    Magic the Gathering is the best TCG game on the iOS.

    Hopefully this one will be fun too. The MtG game has pve though .. hopefully this game has it too.
