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?

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?

Legion Standard Bearer, Lich

Red / Creep
Legion Standard Bearer
 
Legion Standard Bearer's allied neighbors have +4 Attack
 
Black / Hero
 
 
Sacrifice / Active Ability
 
Condemn another ally and draw a card. If that ally has 6 or more Attack, draw an extra card.
 
Chain Frost / Signature Spell
 
Deal 3 damage to a unit. Repeat 7 times : Deal 3 damage to a random unit to its left or right.
 
 
Get initiative
 
After you play this spell, you get the initiative coin and may immediately take another action. If you use this action to pass, you will retain initiative and may act first in the next lane.
 
Pulse
 
A delay between effect of a spell or ability. Continuous effects are updated, reactive abilities are processed, and units that have been condemned or dealt lethal damage are destroyed.
 
 
I got these from @PlayArtifact on Twitter. To me, the Legion Standard Bearer sounds much viable in red, and I absolutely love what they've done to Lich. The card arts are phenomenal!

My guess on why Valve is launching Artifact

Over the course of years, people have been constantly asking Valve to develop sequels for Half-life, Left 4 Dead, Portal 3, et cetera, et cetera. But why have they ingored all the voices and started developing a TCG? I'm sure there are lots of reasons, but one thing I know for sure is that because the potential profit for card games exceeds single/multiplayer video games by far. And by far, I mean tremendously.
You can purchase almost any video games within the price of $59.99. However, with $2 booster packs being sold in Artifact, people most likely will spend much more than that. It's well known that Artifact will launch with 280 cards available, and by deducting the 108 cards, which would be given to us in the purchase of the game, from the total card pool, the game leaves us total of 172 cards to pull. Unless you are a very lucky person, I highly doubt that you'll pull all desired cards within the price range of a full game. And there's always a little bit of money Valve takes away when you're using Steam market which would eventually snowballed to be a huge mountain of cash for Valve to take.
What about microtransactions that most of the games today have? Wouldn't it be an incentive for Valve to develop sequels? Please do keep in mind that many gamers often criticize developers for putting in such greedy detail. TCGs, however, are relatively free from getting such criticisms since people are very used to buying packs to play the game.
I love what I've seen from Artifact as much as you do. However, clearly, the game is made to make Valve richer. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. Companies seek for maximized profits which makes it totally natural. Just wanted to let you know what I was thinking.

Just curious, the info is out there, how do you access it?

With Valve starting to release new cards daily and some Twitch streamers or YouTubers either working with valve or giving out beta keys, we are getting informed about the game so we can understand more... So, The people here on moot, I want to know how you get your info and if it's one way or a dozen ways...

Feel free to comment, the more input the better...
Thanks for your time...

Is offline play available?

I'm aware of the fact that there are A.I.s to play against in single mode, but is it possible to play Artifact without online connection? I don't think the connection here is stable enough to play against other players, and it troubles me to think that I won't be able to enjoy the game.

Gank, a black spell that allows you to attack units on other lanes

What I like about this card is that it best represents the characteristic of what black cards are capable of. Using this will allow players to use more diverse strategies.

I've read somewhere else that some are complaining about Artifact not having a mulligan

Honestly, I don't see what the problem is. You get three out of all five heroes to start with in the beginning of the match. Also, five cards are given initially and you get another two every turn. It's unnecessary for games like Artifact.

There should be an official custom card contest

A contest where players can freely make a card, and by vote, Valve would actually make it into a real one in the game. Of course, they would have to modify the effects for balance, but it would be mind blowing to see all the crazy ideas coming from people all over the world.
