Crack The Whip -> Coordinated Assault

I'm surprised that this hasn't come up to discussion in this lounge yet. Crack The Whip, a black spell that modifies a black hero with "After you play a black card, give this hero and its allied neighbors +2 Attack this round," has been renamed to Coordinated Assault. Apparently, due to it being a 'black' card that has a title and imagery of whipcracking, some of the people were offended, arguing that the card contains racist connotations. There's already an article about it.
Any thoughts?

Will MTG Arena hurt Artifact?

MTGA has been getting a lot of attention on Twtich lately and has been featured on the home page pretty much every day since the beta released. MTGA could definitely take away a lot of potential Artifact players especially because it's free to play compared to Artifact's up-front cost.

It wouldn't be wrong to think if the devil was planning this the whole time...

October is nearing

Artifact releases in two months, and we still don't have any clue on when the beta would start. And most importantly, no news on pre-order with beta access. I've been telling people to be patient, but now I'm losing it myself.

Would 750 Ti be enough to run Artifact?

Like I said in the title. Would it be enough to run it smoothly? My computer's like 4 years old with GTX 750 Ti and i3 4130 I've been pretty much playing most of the games on PS4 and Xbox one. I wish Artifact were released on both consoles. I've been saving up to buy Artifact and booster packs, and I just don't want spend more dollars just to play the game.😅

A small prize whenever you win a tournament

I couldn't be more happy to welcome Artifact, but if there's absolutely no incentive to play against others, why play it in the first place? Ladder system is not my kind of thing, but I wish there was a compensation for putting efforts in to the game. How does a small prize for every tournament you win sound? Even just a booster pack.

Although rarities don't necessarily decide how powerful a card is...

So far, it seems to me the higher the rarity is, the better the cards are. Of course I won't be running a deck full of only rare cards, but it sure sounds tempting if i ever be able to make one. It's not impossible if you think about it. I saw a post the other day on Reddit saying 61 cards out of 222 are rare. Considering that there will be expansions to come in the future, If I spend just right amount of money, I'll be able to make one.

What did I miss?

I've been staying away from Artifact for over a week, and there's not a lot of posts going on in the lounge. The official Artifact Twitter seems to be working pretty hard introducing new cards to players, and the search for beta keys is also still ongoing. I planned never to come here again until the official release, but I just couldn't bear it. Can anyone sum up what's going on right now?

What are your favorite cards so far?

New cards are getting constantly revealed these days, and some of them look fantastic. Performance wise, I'll be incorporating Vhoul martyr in my deck. It will be a fine addition considering how modification gives permanent bonus stats to all allies. Putting aside the performance, I love the card art of Zeus. He never got my attention as a Dota hero but is certainly a fantastic looking unit in Artifact.

MTG Arena Open Beta on 27th

Did you guys know that MTG Arena is having an open beta on 27th this month? It's on today's daily moot.
I won't be able to try it since I'm all for Artifact, and I don't want to spoil my taste before the game's release. Does anyone want to try MTG out? I'm curious to know if they made a good game.

Beta starts next month! But on what date?

Come on Valve. I think it's time already for you guys to come clean. September is about to end, and October's just days away. Just stop with the card reveal and tell us exactly what date it is. Don't tell me it'll be on the last day of October! I'm barely holding myself not to pass out.

Anyone think there needs to be a spectator mode?

For free I mean. There should be a spectator mode for players whoever wishes to watch the game for themselves. It's a way of attracting more players I would say. Of course, there will be many videos expaining what artifact is about and how to play the game. Nothing, however, is better than watching the game for yourself in action imo. For sure, it'll help potential players get the better gist of Artifact.

What decides the rarity of a card?

I just checked on the website mentioned on the post below, and I already see cards being sorted by rarities. I thought the hero cards were supposed to be rare, making the rest common and uncommon, but I guess I was wrong. There should be certain reasons why some of the cards are rare and some of them are not. Do any of you guys know?

Seemingly a great website to hang out before Artifact comes out

The latest news and database is updated quickly, and they totally nailed the design. Build your own deck and share! You can even get your deck rated by other players.

I would love to see an Artifact tournament to be held in moot.

There should be a tournament held under the name of moot and also a prize for whoever wins and takes the honor. The prize doesn't necessarily be a lot of money, and if it's possible, tournaments should be held regularly. This would definitely make the Artifact lounge more crowded and interesting(not that it isn't right now lol)
 
moot cup? Moot cup? moot.us cup? Anyone better idea for the name?

Creeps being summoned randomly into lanes

Randomly summoned creeps are one of the few RNG elements in Artifact. It might seem it infects little to none since summoned creeps have pretty low stats, but it's actually a game changing feature. What I like about it is that it can possibly lead players to turn the table around if creeps are summoned in the desired lanes. It can buy a player enough time to prepare for a comeback and potentially be buffed enough to make some damage. At the same time, it may cause a problem of unpredictability, making the game less skill based. Do you think it's better to summon creeps this way, or do you prefer to have total control of where they're being summoned?
