      git gud at the game, you can beat them even if they have 20 hp if you play properly instead of playing like a scrub lol

    Finally a card game for me

    I looked up the game and it feels like a hearthstone game for weebs in my opinion.

    • Shanex on October 29, 2016

      A lot of people playing it are actually people who played hearthstone, they say it’s basically Hearthstone but better and less rng.

    • ASD on October 29, 2016

      I doubt I’ll play it actually. I love card games but I’d like the MMO world where I can walk around and use cards.

      • KingStorm on November 9, 2016

        what game lets you walk around and use cards?

    Another card shit.

    • PAINWHEEL on October 29, 2016

      With anime boobs! Wow that’s a huge +!

      • Preciel on October 31, 2016

        it’s a pretty good game compared to hearthstone where you open 50 packs and get no legendary, i open 10 packs and end up with 3 legendaries.

    • ASD on October 29, 2016

      Ikr? The card games are kinda annoying it feels like they been flooding off and on all year long. But this is the first anime themed card game I’ve seen.

      • Grief on October 30, 2016

        Well the annoying thing is actually, that the current trend causes consumer fatigue.
        Of cause that is understandable if everything and everyone is using TCG-/CCG-elements in some way or form.
        This has a negative effect on indie/start-up companies (like ours), who already have it hard enough to break into the physical cardgame market.
        And this situation won’t change for the next one-and-half year or so.
        Sadly, originality won’t have an effect either, for it does not look good in the eyes of the investors and, a little funny paradox, the players. They rather not spend 10 mins longer on a game, but willingly seek out the p2w-ish TCGs/CCGs that have an identity crisis, due to the same face problem…

        …sorry, I started ranting for no good reason ^^;

      • ASD on October 30, 2016

        Sad and it feels like it’s been happening since blizzard released hearthstone in my opinion. Hearthstone probably wasn’t the first card game to be made not 100% sure but it feels like they recently began flooding ever since then. even elder scrolls online made their own card game.

        • SDA on October 30, 2016

          Your right, hearthstone isn’t the first card game. Hell if I remember correctly it gets some ideas from other card games out there. But it was the first one to get pretty successful. Of course there are tons of card games, online ones, that came out waaay before hearthstone. Only difference is that Hearthstone became very popular while the others didn’t.

        • ASD on October 31, 2016

          And since hearthstone is very popular it’s like people are flooding the market with these games to try to get a piece of the cashflow that hearthstone is making lol. If it keeps happening like they they will ruin the card game genre and make it worthless. But personally I like hearthstone because it’s a decent size playerbase and they have tournaments and ect.

          • Preciel on October 31, 2016

            it’s a shame Carte and Swordgirls didn’t become a hit those two were pretty good games

            but carte didn’t have enough cards and both games didn’t advertise properly, swordgirls was nice but their artwork were too revealing

            shadowverse is a great game and is far more rewarding than hearthstone will ever be, the only downside so far is that there isn’t much pve content.

            but hey atleast i don’t have to open over 50 packs to obtain 1 legendary, i was surprised how often i earn them and unlike hearthstone you recieve alot of free packs just for completing the tutorial.

          • ASD on November 1, 2016

            Agreed. I like shadowverse. I like carte and swordgirls I’m not a huge fan of it for alot of reasons like the artwork and the gameplay and ect.
