    Hopefully this isn't indicative of the direction that blizzard is taking as a company. Some times it's better go out in a blaze of glory rather than to just fade away.

    I said it few weeks ago that this announcement would be just as exciting as D3 going to ps3/ps4... Blizz is loosing it big time... The only "card game" i even enjoyed was magic the gathering battlegrounds and it wasnt formated as a tru card game. But that was epic.... another fail by blizz

    You all expected a big announcement at Pax East? They have Blizzcon for major announcements. I think it looks like a fun game and I will be trying it, eventhough I'm not into card games at all usually.

    Looking back, I don't know why I expected anything good; why would they unveil something good at PAX instead of Blizzcon?

    Many other online card games have used 4 developers with good quality, what the hell did they waste 15 on this for?

    And this IS new for Blizzard. It's nothing like the TCG and it's online.
    Yeah, and it's a piece of shit no one wanted. Stop trying to pull that "don't raise expectations" crap. This is objectively terrible. Even the audience is hating it.

    The game looks awesome, you guys are too quick at judging it just like you were with MoP before it released.
