Interest LOST

This game requires an Internet connection
Son of a...! Oh well, I'll just have to forget about this one. If they made a PREMIUM version for $9.99, then I'd buy it.

It's a card battler like Hearthstone. It has to have an online connection. It's the point. Lost Portal is what you want.

Having a hard time playing this and not constantly comparing it to Hearthstone. How does it differ?

I'm liking this a lot.
Besides some problems during the tutorial (sometimes the hologram covers the card and you can't dismiss it but it's minor) it's super slick and polished, it's like a hardcore scifi Heartstone.
Really liking the races differences and absolutely loving the animations, sounds and voices.
Gameplay is similar to Heartstone with added tactics cards (very cool).
The only thing I miss is adding friends from Gamecenter, would be cool.
A SP campaign would be fantastic too, but the AI is competent so far.
The cards are fantastic.

I am liking this dealie.
Just won a game when an opponent had two screens and four beasties out by using the sniper and chipping away is last health.
Great swing card that sniper.
2 cost 1 damage 2 health.
And can hit any target for one damage.

Yup, this is a complete Hearthstone clone basically. It's not just "also a CCG", it literally takes most of its mechanics and balancing from HS.

To be fair, hearthstone didnt appear out if the aether as a completely new genre, it was an evolution of an established genre.

Star crusade isnt really an evolution at all though. Its more of the same, which is fine if you enjoy these kinds of games

I'm a HUGE fan of Hearthstone. There is no way that this will replace HS for me. But I am interested in their drafting mode. Has anyone played it? Is it identical to the HS arena mode? Or did they do something more interesting?

I tried out this game for a few minutes and it is basically a re-skin of hearthstone. However, your class or hero has more than one power that they can use depending on the energy they have. The cards are more affordable to purchase as well. It's not different enough for me to continue though.
