Nub Question

What kind of game is artifact? I know its a card game tho, who else buy that game?

The Thrill of the Chase

Not sure what exactly I like about opening card packs, but I find myself watching these types of videos on occasion. Pack opening for Artifact is no different though it can never beat out opening physical packs.

Artifact's release has been pretty underwhelming

I've been watching people play on Twitch to decide whether or not to buy the game and basically nobody's playing it. Pretty surprised to see how few viewers there are on release day. I wonder if all the bad rep with the payment structure is what's causing the bad release?

Read "Prelude" - an Artifact comic

To add some fuel to the fire that is Artifact's release today, Valve have announced a comic to read so players may brush up on some Lore before jumping into the game. Hit the link below to get started:
I won't say anything else - this is an experience you must try on your own!

Valve’s Card Game ‘Artifact’ Releases on Steam Today

Artifact is the highly-anticipated digital card game from Valve that has had fans eagerly awaiting today. The game is based on Dota 2 and as such utilizes a three-lane board setup similar to the famous MOBA game. Artifact is designed by legendary game designer Richard Garfield, who famously created Magic: the Gathering 25 years ago, and promises incredibly satisfying strategic gameplay. You can buy the game itself for $20 on the Steam store and you can now buy individual Artifact cards on the marketplace as well.

How is the beta so far?

I've been watching people stream ever since the beta has begun and just can't resist an urge to play the game myself. The problem is, although with numerous attempts, I ended up having no key in my hand😭 I don't know how many of you here on moot has access to the beta, but can any of you share your experience on it? Even just a little bit? I can't seem to grasp the game's overall balance just by looking through streams here and there.

Not bad of a tutorial, for anyone learning the game...

Wish I could skip it tbh, but sucked it up and play it through...

LV.29 Dragon 1year

The beta is live......

Best gif I can find...
Ok I'm one of the few that's in the beta, but not near my computer at the moment... But,
Rejoice, Rejoice, Rejoice...

MONETIZATION is coming to Artifact - Awesome...but not really lol

God, I'm at awe at everything...

God, even though I was watching since the NDA lifted, I got to say, all of what I saw on twitch with the streams buying packs, doing constructed or draft matches is amazing... So amazing i had to stop looking at streams... Tbh, I'm so not ready for Artifact even though I'll be in Monday's beta... I want to have fun with this game and I believe I will and with some few opportunities coming my way, it makes it overwhelming for me... I Just Don't Know... I'll going to bed earlier than usual tonight to get myself situated, won't make me 100% but close enough... For those without a beta key still, go look around twitter or some twitch streams or even YouTube... There are plenty of the beta testers coming out... Best of luck to anyone... I hope I'm ready to experience it all...
From some streamer I watch...

Semi-embarrassing TIL: Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering, designed Artifact.

The title says it all.
I've always loved card games, and I've played many; Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic: The Gathering, and digitally Hearthstone, Shadowverse and also Magic: The Gathering Arena.
Having a ton of hype for Artifact and desperately needing a fresh new card game, I hate to say that I didn't realize/learn this sooner.
November 28th can't come any faster!

I just found out that some people had the beta for over a year

TSM Kripp who's mostly known as a Hearthstone streamer was breaking down Artifact on stream and he mentioned that some people have had access to the game for over a year. Looks like some folks will be having a bigger advantage than we initially thought.

One of the best matches I seen in this tourney... Both players brought their A game...

LV.29 Dragon 1year

This dude is so ready for Artifact...

LV.29 Dragon 1year

With the tournament over that next challenge is the NDA...

On the 17th the beta testers will be released from their NDA which let's them go Crazy on Artifact... Bitter Sweet in some ways but will see more content in the game... Better than nothing...

LV.29 Dragon 1year

If those that want to know the top 8 just in case, here you go...

I didn't get a chance to see the tourney because of work and I assume no one saw this top 8 coming...
Hope this top 8 single elimination goes will and 8 I hope your country was in that top 8... USA is slacking, so maybe Canada? 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 Either way, it will be fun...

Anyone planning to watch The Artifact Preview Tournament?

The Artifact Preview Tournament will be on air this weekend. Artifact lounge hasn't been the most active for the past few weeks, but I wanted to know if anyone other than our moderator is still interested enough to watch the stream. Just wanted to know cause it seems there aren't many people here that actually care enough to play the game.

For the people who can't wait for Artifact...

Ok, I know what your thinking, but it's not that bad... I would play this on pc or laptop, I tried on my phone, but the problem is I can't drag cards might be different on your phone... Don't expect to much from it, it was it's moments, but it works very good... If u have issues just like I had just refresh the page a couple time... Hope it helps in any way, let me know what you think in the comments below...

That makes it even better... Give it a shot when u get a chance...

LV.29 Dragon 1year

Ok, I saw this a month ago... Leaving this here as a reminder...

Make that 40k none of us are entering the that first tournament even if we want to...

LV.29 Dragon 1year

Well the tournament is closer than we thought... This one is a preview tournament for beta tester..

Go check out the link, it will be on steam tv November 10-11...

Might or Might not be helpful to people, hope it is...

Bit discouraged about my meepo deck having so many cards it's at 52 now, so hard to lower the cards... Found this post, might be helpful on our wait... Also, I won a beta key from this website thanks to my Meepo research... I made a post about it a few days ago... Your boy will be in the beta, I just can't wait for it to come...

Richard Garfield Sharing words of wisdom...
