I'm a huge fan of Hearthstone. One of the things that intrigued me the most about this Runefest was that they actually didn't scrap the idea of Chronicle, the MTG Online/Hearthstone knock-off. And you know what? That's cool with me. I don't care if it's not as big as Hearthstone. What I'm looking for is a balanced and intriguing game that is viable for free to play people much like Hearthstone is. If it's packed to the gills with microtransaction bullshit, as Hearthstone is barely a year after being released, I'm not going to touch the beast let alone considering spending a damn dime on it. Card games are super-popular right now, but it's risky going against a behemoth like Hearthstone. It could be really, truly great. I'm really rooting for its success...but these are some big shoes to be filling, with more expectations than I expect a smaller company like Jagex would be able to match.

 

But enough of doubts. Woo Chronicle. Give me my card game fix!

You'd think by now they'd be tired of doing things after Blizzard and getting their butts handed to them.

Fact is - they need a new huge "hit" because they can't ride on RuneScape's success forever ...

As for calling it a Hearthstone knock-off, I can understand why it would seem that way since the cards look way too similar. But, the gameplay looks a lot different. I think comparing it to Hearthstone really does a disservice to how many CCG and TCG's are out there right now. Its like saying War and Poker are the same game because the cards are the same.


R.I.P. The olde nite. A legend is gone but not forgotten.

That is very true. What I find most alarming is that it seems to have grindy RPG-like elements. That is something I hope is not core gameplay. It's exactly what I don't want to see in more games - added timewasting elements that simply aren't fun added just to pad the length of the experience out...and to entice you to part with some cash to make the path shorter.

They've not only relied on RuneScape's success - they've used it to bankroll projects that were ultimately (unfortunately) not successful.

It is literally the beast of burden that carries all of their failures on its back.

Yup and currently seems they will continue to do so for sometime.  Joys of microtransaction culture right?

How long until the membership packages become season passes?

Would the annual premiere club packs and summertime 3-month packs not count as season passes?

Yeah membership package and a season pass are kinda already one in the same. They both are an upfront payment for access to all future additions for a set time period. If anything membership package implies more than season pass because without a season pass you can still play the whole base game, but without a membership package you can only play the free portion of the game.

So then clearly the next step is actual content you'll have to pay for and not merely cosmetics. 7 dollars to gain access to Menaphos everyone.

We already pay to access content - it's called membership.

But that's what will make this "special" and "premium."
