I disagree. I'd even go so far as to argue that it didn't die until the Meet Your Match update. The argument saying it died after the F2P update is easier, but I like to challenge myself. Hey, I gotta try. TF2 is my downright favorite multiplayer game. I can't betray a friend I've had for so long. I certainly can't let someone smack talk that same friend who recently died, and whose body I see raped almost every day.

Shame not many games are moddable now. Though I figure if Valve just makes any sort of FPS on Source 2 and leave it open to modding we'll have a new mod out for it pretty fast.

If we do I really hope someone adds that guard dog as a class, that was a good idea.

d07c33  No.15794457


Honestly it's no different a model really. The physical cards you own are pieces of card board you paid (in some cases) 100's or even 1000's of dollars for, that in reality cost pennies to manufacture.

Chink knocks offs are functionally the same and cost a fraction, and even then they are still generally more than they ought to be for what they physically are.

If you're going to burn money on a card game, Artifact seems like a shit choice. The multiple boards is a straight up annoying gimmick with little real gameplay shakeups versus other card games. Also the cards themselves in most cases are boring and uninspired raw stats.

6c8c11  No.15794466


That's the crazy thing though, the TFC developers, were literally more pissed about being called fags for circle jerking "Launch Day TF2" (Really TF2 with all stock weapons, but who can be fucked to look at changelogs) while never having played it, the funny thing too is, There's basically no reason to erase your Join Date Badge other than having a mercenary one with a really recent year.

I honestly don't know but I suspect they do in the same way Tf2 does. People make stuff, but outside of certain scenarios nobody can really use it and most the people making stuff is doing it to eventually have it added to the game via the workshop. Possibly to get some shekels too.

Unrelated but I miss being able to play tf2 with mods, I haven't found an active server that allow them in years. It hurts to know this sort of stuff is dying.

instead of trying to make something genuinely great

its possible these destroyed the company from the inside and now all that matter is money and useless pride about products they cant even replicate these days

Valve is worse than EA, EA is atleast honest about what it does, Valve straight up lives in nostalgia and DOES NOTHING, milks its fanbase FOR DECADE and they eat it up even more with this new crap

Steam and Microtransactions have the potential to not be shit, but Valve are too incompetent to use it correctly.

Shit when the Mann Co Store came out, aside from Unusuals, it was essentially just a way for them to throw some fiscal incentive to mod creators to make some new weapons and shit so Valve wouldn't have to without hoping for a modding jam and permission from the website and modders to throw shit in the game.

Which they then proceeded to fuck up by walling off all of their servers with sv_pure and workshop meaning mods never get spread into the community to use. Even a lot of the Skin mods fucking died since Valve pushed the TFteam into monetizing retextures. So there isn't really a space for that.

And steam they continually fuck up trying to grab money, like "Hey guys, we'll host whatever mod you want check out the steam workshop! By the way? If you don't own the game on steam you can't download anything*"

*Mods can be downloaded with SteamCMD

So now fucking every mod ever is on steam and only steam so people can get steam upvotes, and it's created this fucking absolute cancer where mod sites will have tons of JPEG FILES telling you to go download the mod on steam and upvote it.

I have never gotten into card games, whether they were physical or digital, but wouldn't this business model be preferred over most the digital card games out there? I have at least tried Hearthstone, and that you cannot trade in as far as I know, so the cards are completely locked behind first party paywalls. At least with Artifact, you can trade and sell them, can't you? I would at least assume Valve is gonna integrate basic Steam features into the game, but I suppose anything is possible in current year+3.

I'm fine with them in concept because the fact that it is virtual allows for more creative card design. Simplest example is cards that generate random cards. That would be quite difficult to replicate had the game been physical. That being said, for a competitive card game I don't think that sort of randomness is good. I think that sort of shit only works well in single player card games.

What part would you like fixed? We have our own vision of how the mod will go, and if you want to provide feedback and discuss something with all of the other developers instead of just me, you can join our steam group or post in the discord.

Watch the basic explanation of how the game is played. Now compare how complicated the game is to how retarded 90% of people are. People are probably hating it because it's so hard and there's so much knowledge needed. Unlike shit like MOBAs where you need a ton of information to play at all, there's no guides explaining what to do just to be remotely competitive.

Why lie so blatantly? I mean thats what he implies the prices might drop down to in the future. If they're around $0.40 - $2.0 right now then its an even more bold lie.

All this fucking tl;dr to downplay the fact that he had to pay even more than the initial price to have a functioning deck, what a fucking subhuman.

His entire point is irrelevant anyways. Most people are just getting access to the game, it's only a small number of people that have had access to the game for a while that know whats good. Once people figure it out, demand will drive up prices on the good cards.

It's the opposite of what this guy says: more people=more demand=price gouging.

Who the fuck asked for a Dota cardgame?

Think about, who the fuck would ask valve, that is mainly known for FPS trash, to do a card game? Better yet, who decided that an assfaggots cardgame was a necessary thing, when the original game is already fucked to death, and was ruined with every update?

>b-but muh icefrog

It's a valve game, it is published as such and this TCG crap was promoted as such. There's no reason for this to exist, just like there is no reason for an Assassin's Creed TCG to exist. It's meant for a market that doesn't exist, or if it does is very niche to go for.

In typical Valve fashion, they wanted to catch on to the "TCG" trend which was going on a year or two before they accounced Artifact even though by the time it actually got revealed, TCGs were already going down the proverbial toilet. Who still plays TCG? Seriously? And is there a single Pay2Play TCG out there besides Artifact?

This AVGN clip has never been more appropriate. We could go on for years wondering why the fuck Valve hasn't caught on to the majority opinion and released an actual fucking game (namely Half Life 3) already. They know there's a market for it. They know that people will be hyping it up FOR them, thus there'd be no need to pay for advertisement or even PR for that matter (not like they do much PR at all anyways, Valve is fucking useless tbh) so why the fuck aren't they committing?

If you want my personal opinion, I think it's because Valve ran out of competent developers long ago, and now they're stuck with dumb california monkeys who don't know their asses from their elbows and thus can't produce anything on the level of the portal gun or even the grav gun ever again. Fucking sad.

Remember when TF2 used to have almost bi-monthly major updates?

>not like they do much PR at all anyways

It's not just the lack of competent devs that's killing Valve as a game studio, it's their freeform "work on whatever" philosophy that enables devs to just jump ship to whatever project they want to work on. So if they get bored of something or it's proving too hard, hey, why not fuck off and work on something easier? And honestly, what could be easier than a fucking TCG? Come up with some basic rules, shit out some cards, and design some assets that would be amateurish if applied to any other context. Boom, game shipped, back to slacking off for another five years.

I feel the other big reason Valve is dead as a studio is because they honestly just don't care about making video games anymore. Why would they bother? They own the largest PC gaming marketplace out there by a substantial margin, to the point where if your game's not on Steam, it might as well not exist. Every game sold means fees to Valve, which means Gaben's wallet gets fatter (just like him) and Valve gets lazier.

I honestly believe the only thing that will make Valve release a video game again (and no, this abortion of a card game doesn't count) is Steam being seriously challenged or even dethroned by another platform. I don't have high hopes, but anything's possible.

Now that you talk about it, it would make sense if they announced HL3 as a last resort product, aka the company is in the line of bankruptcy and they need something to make their stocks worth something.

The problem is that it would have the Battlecuck vagina syndrome, where all the skilled developers have left and what remains is incompetent leftists braindeads, that couldn't develop a game to save their asses, which would lead to even a bigger stock loss.

They have it too gloated with (((Steam))) being the monopoly in the computer market, if shit happens eventually and they stop being the dominating hand, they sure would try to attempt games. But since alternatives to steam besides GoG are even worse, I think their loss of monopoly is going to take a while

>hard to learn


>balls to wall hard

Seriously? I picked it up in three or so matches. The game's deceptively simple once you realize it plays more like a board game then every MTG derivative.

Here's my bullet list for shit so far.

>You can only play spells in a lane so long as a hero of that color is in the lane so you have to take that into account with placement and strategy, also since their are spells that can affect other lane what you place in the leftmost is of dire importance.

>Initiative controls who gets to play spells first in each lane and is important for killing heroes and clucking your opponent out of playing spells with their associated color.

>Alternate win-cons(blow up someone's hard to kill ancient with fire power rather then trying to kill two lanes) are nice and especially so because you have to balance it against board-wipes so you have to be careful to not over-commit.

>Market is kind of fun because you leaning on it different depending on what kind of deck your playing. Slower decks want to stop more aggressive decks from killing your heroes for more gold and momentum.

>Who has the advantage switches often which causes tactics to change. I would abandon one lane to focus on two others only to bounce back to it once my opponent over committed in another lane I jammed up.

>Most heroes have very relevant passives that give creeps buffs, control where creeps spawn, cause damage on certain triggers, or allows them to relocate.

<I haven't played long enough, but I think the starter set is going to go stale fast. Although there are good aggro, control, and tempo decks I don't see any combo decks or anything that qualifies as truly "interesting".

<Games are longer by design and I've seen lots of players stall or forgot they had priority.

<It crashed once but I was able to re-connect.

<Axe is the most expensive card right now at 20$ with the closest being Kanna at $7.5 with most other cards being pennies. It's nice to be able to get the cards I need to be competitive fast and easy but…

<There's not much reward from the game. The only real reason I'm playing it right now is because I'm interested. Would of been nice to have some custom cosmetics stuff for achieving certain milestones that you couldn't buy.

I'd wait for an expansion that adds a little more depth to the game.

Currently the top stuff in the market and explanations as to why:

>Axe is an aggro house and aggro does well, he also gives you one of the best spells in the game.

>Drow buffs everything everywhere

>Kanna gives access to one of the best spells in the game.

>Annihilation is a board wipe

>Horn of alpha is the best market card.

>Tinker has high attack and his ability targets specific units as well as blowing up equipment

>Lich is a house who can kill your own stuff to draw cards.

>At any coast is almost a board wipe.

>Conflagration kills most creep decks(What Kanna and Drow are enabling currently)

>Emissary of Quorum wins late game for after mentioned creep decks.

>Unearthed secrets draws you cards.

>Blink knife can move heroes to different lanes

>Cheating death does what it says on the tin 50% of the time.

>Spring the trap puts two houses in any lane

>Mercenary Exiles is a gold sink after an aggro deck has bought everything off the market

>Omnikinght is the very definition of a house that heals.

So really nothing I consider Interesting from a game play perspective. It seems like they're actually playing it a little safe with this first set because the game "looks complex".

Meanwhile I'm flipping back-n-forth with my other card game that isn't so basic at the moment.

If you want to see how much it currently costs to have all cards, open this and click the run button https://repl.it/@vadash/KindheartedBrownKeyboardmapping

The price fluctuates, but it costs about 270usd to get all the cards.

And if Valve's history of every-escalating prices&flashiness of cosmetics is any to go by, power creep is guaranteed. Especially since the game is whale-only, there's no reason for Valve to try and make a good game since they're profiteering off of retards.

Just look at the ways you can die in Dota… turning your skin inside out, how fucking painful is that. And imagine how painful it is to survive that shit. Open wounds all over your fucking body. Or having spidereggs injected into you who then eat you within. Or killing you, stealing your soul and forcing it to fight your friends. Or dying to your nightmares, Fiends Grip rips you apart by your worst fears. Or getting covered in napalm and then slowly burning to death.

Dota still had a very dark and cruel lore, but it chanced. Someone in the lifetime of dota either left or got fired and whoever replaced that person sucks dick. Every new dota hero is basically fortnight like family friendly. And I haven't looked into artifact yet but I bet it will feature the same kind of bullshit.

as for the anon above… he plays console games, autistic singleplayer games with no real difficulty. Those games are for autists. You figure out a preset system and then beat the game. This is also why games like Dark Souls are not as hard as everyone says. Because those are also just a matter of figuring the shit system out.

Multiplayer games like dota, cs/ut or fighting games are were all the skill is because you actually have to outplay a real person.

I am pretty sure that all of you could pick dota up right now and still suck at it 400 hours in simply because the game is so fucking advanced.

tgm3 and twinkle star sprites at a high level. real people are even more predictable than game ai and in a meticulously crafted multiplayer game where all variables are controlled for and manipulated so you always get the same outcomes there is no skill involved. You are even worse than a facebook or phone player - well aware they aren't playing anything serious they do not consider themselves serious about their time waste. You however have a time waste that fills a void in your tasteless (and clearly financially poor) situation you're stuck playing a vapid multiplayer game where a matchmaking AI finds matches that never increase in difficulty.

It's not a real mutiplayer game, I own tabletop simulator on steam. These games don't require any mechanical skills like actual games do. And Sonic All-Stars Racing has to be the worst racing game out there. Some faggots in the racing game recommended it to me and I bought it without pirating it first. Sonic fans defend it because they never played any other kart games.


>real people are even more predictable than game ai

In what kind of a strange world are actual humans more predictable than limited game ai? You are just talking out of your ass. It's different now, but humans used to beat first chess AI's back in the days. Those are more advanced now, but you can bet your ass that they are not using AI that advanced in games.

>in a meticulously crafted multiplayer game where all variables are controlled for and manipulated so you always get the same outcomes there is no skill involved.

Every game is different because everyone has their own way of playing. Dota alone has over 110 heroes, which allows for plenty of variety in 5vs5 matches. And every hero can be played in multiple ways.

Then there are rts games like Kane's Wrath or PA:Titans which also feature dozens of different strategies. You ever watched people play those? They have to multitask so hard it's unreal. But hey, the actual skill lies in singleplayer games like Nioh, right?

In a typical mobile CCG you don't have to pay an entry fee and even if they are a bit stingy they at least give you some way of "earning" free cards through playing the game.

Valve is on an entirely different level, anon.

fdf99c  No.15796963


Dubs point the truth.

I'll use Shadowverse as an example. It's also a mobile CCG, which also happened to have a PC port. They practically shower you in card packs by playing through the campaign (glorified tutorial), by battling against AI at maximum difficulty, and also login bonuses which grant you a minimum of 1 card pack per week, in additional to all the ingame currency which you can use to purchase card packs. You also get ingame currency for playing vs other players, achievements, and some sort of weekly quests.

A pretty forgiving game to play entirely F2P if you want to.

Artifact on the other hand, has none of these. Congrats, Valve, you managed to be even more jewish than mobile trash.

The real cards model is a hundred times more consumer friendly than any """"free""""" to play ccg. Artifact's real issue is that its cards are boring as fuck.

plus they throw booster packs at you like mad so there's no reason to actually buy them unless you're a full on mongoloid

but paying for digital cards regardless is fully retarded

Paying for digital games is retarded, I only buy physical games like Monopoly. Can't believe people pay for digital things.

one thing that legitimately confuses me is all the console games that only have half the game on the disk then the rest comes in an update

eventually the servers with those game files will be shut down after a couple console generations, then console niggas will have a bunch of useless disks

which will obviously lead to shill-lords like Todd Howard re-releasing games at full price on newer consoles to look good to their mong flocks

That's a problem with Triple Shit "cinematic experience" titles. Regular games and good games don't suffer from that sort of nonsense.

that's a benefit I guess if it's just shit like CoD that will get RIP'd

tbh the only console game from the current gen I've played was bloodborne since a friend gave me it along with his old PS4

well that and a bunch of switch games but I don't really consider Nintendo consoles part of any gen

The best card in this game is the credit card.
