@_discord_221337655508598784:t2bot.iorudy Comedy? Always works 😆 11:52:46
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne Maybe 🙂 13:45:31
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne I've watched some MTG getting started, newbies youtubes, but they are horrible. 13:46:01
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne Btw, I've updagraded the Arcmage TableTop Simulation integration to use the new api. 13:46:43
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne So we can use that to make some in scenes as well. 13:47:42
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne I think snowdrop made some for tinytactics before. 13:48:10
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne And they looked great, don't know how he made the camera panning so nice. 13:48:39
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne Maybe be just knowing how to navigate good. 13:49:08
@_discord_278782221115195402:t2bot.ioTappedOut What's the games hook? Being libre? being a magic alternative? 19:57:33
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop ngoeminne You want to do the panning inside of TS, there are 2-3 ways to control the camera, and that was just one of them.. also you can tweak the speed of it I think. Nothing hard, just toy around. 😛 19:59:58
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop ngoeminne also agree that 90% of all promo videos for boardgames suck 😛 20:00:37
@_discord_278782221115195402:t2bot.ioTappedOut Does Arcmage have a sell-sheet? 20:21:34
@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 The tutorials/promos for Fantasy Flight LCGs are usually pretty tight. You can take a look at those for ideas 21:47:37

@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne TappedOut Arcmage hook is being a libre magic alternative 🙂 08:41:13
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne I think it depends on who you're targeting. It's also fun to play. 08:41:37
@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne We haven't got a sell-sheet, but our main page is something that comes close. 08:42:24

@_discord_250010459225194496:t2bot.iongoeminne db0 Thanks for the FF LCG tip, I'll have a look. 08:43:46
@_discord_278782221115195402:t2bot.ioTappedOut If you had to pick between being a libre game and a magic alternative, which do you prefer? 10:02:01
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop Being specificlaly an MTG alternative might be a hard sell, since it's unclear if it targets the mtg players, or players that for some reason want alternatives for mtg (and maybe dont like mtg) In addition, whichi CCG isnt an mtg alt? 75 - 90% of all the ones ever created are variations of it more or less. The rest are also ccg:s but do something more different, in which case they're not similar enough to Arc anyhow except for the customizable and card aspect. 11:41:59
@_discord_205691568756097024:t2bot.ioInvertedVertex also, you have to take into account the fact that for some players, a game being advertised first and foremost as an MtG alternative might actually be put off by that 11:45:53
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop Today that would probably be the majority of players. I believe there are more x y z players combined over various ccg:s than MTG alone, but not sure... Just using Hearthstone and all thousand clones of it as a metric could suggest that, but given the crazy revenue Hasbro reported surrounding MTG it's hard to say 11:47:58
@_discord_205691568756097024:t2bot.ioInvertedVertex direct competition with MtG is impossible at this point 11:48:49
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop Yes, and has been for a good while... 😛 So that perhaps speaks against trying to target the MTG base? Im not sure... I know for my own part that I'd happily leave MTG years ago if there was an open option, but there wasnt one. Players are also "locked in" a game when thery have invested hundreds of euros on it, if not thousands. Leaving that behind then will be "harder" mentally, so you continue taking your crack cocain... 😛 11:51:26

@_discord_278782221115195402:t2bot.ioTappedOut Isn't a lot of mtg gameplay tied into having heuristics of dealing with the game for a loooong period of time. 02:23:40
@_discord_205691568756097024:t2bot.ioInvertedVertex i guess? 02:43:51
@_discord_205691568756097024:t2bot.ioInvertedVertex most of the design is heuristics at this point though 02:44:08
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop Design methodology and what people do during gameplay could and I think do differ though. Heuristics are true to some extent in gameplay, but I would actually describe that as something positive. 10:32:59
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop It's a question of what one wants the gameloop to look like. What should a typical game contain, what would a typical player do on average given the game mechanics etc. 10:34:10
