I have been playing this since the alpha stages and I must say this is one of the best (if not the best) turn based multiplayer strategy game out there. I generally like turn based games and TCG-s, and Duelyst just takes the cake.

The game develops at a very high pace. It has changed a lot in the past couple of months, therefore it will probably get even better very soon ^-^

Can't wait for the steam release. :3

This is a good turn based strategy game, not sure what everyone else is talking about... Probably aren't smart enough to get the tutorial done.
