I signed up for beta.

Any idea when the beta will launch? I didn't see anything.

EDIT: Possibly Summer....

I think I might just trade and craft but not actually play the game itself too much.

No trading. CCG, not TCG.

Eh? Since when is there no trading in a CCG? You don't trade in MTGO?

Also ccg = tcg

Normally CCG is used for games where every starter/booster has fixed contents (so basically you could buy 4x each starter and have 4x+ all cards in the set.) (Also called LCG)

For example, Game of Thrones and Android: Netrunner work like this.

Other card games where you buy random boosters are generally called trading card games.

Well, I guess it isn't set on stone, but that's the definition I have heard the most.

Also one reason for Blizzard to call this ccg instead of tcg is probably wow tcg already existing (producted by Cryptozoic) which is prob. 4th largest tcg atm.

Sorry but no. Lcg is not ccg.

Mtgo is a ccg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collectible_card_game

Android, game of thrones etc. are lcgs http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamefa...ving-card-game

The distinction is very clear, especially in games like call of chtulhu that went from ccg to lcg

http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/8...ible-card-game

http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/4...-the-card-game

From fantasy flight:

What is an LCG™?



A Living Card Game (LCG)™ is a game that breaks away from the traditional Collectible Card Game (CCG) model by offering a new fixed card distribution method that still offers the same dynamic customizable, expanding, and constantly evolving game play that makes CCG’s so much fun, but without the blind buy purchase model that has burned out so many players. The end result is an innovative mix that gives you the best of both worlds!

Could be fun. Looks like Blizzard (smartly) decided they should make a game for the tablet market.

Hopefully it has the depth of a real ccg with only 5 card hands and 30 card decks.
