Here is the set 2 card spoiler. This card is rather interesting from the card design/mechanics point of view.
I had always wondered what if we have ability to build city or castle in TCG game. Well, HEX got the answer for me.
As the August i.e. the release of Set.2, Shattered Destiny, approaches Cryptozoic continues to preview some of the upcoming cards from the set.
More parameters in the game, more potential for the game to utilize them as a new dedicated mechanics. HEX has a charge power for champion’s, and not surprisingly they are taking this mechanics to the next level already in the upcoming set.
One of the main thing I love about dTCG/dCCG is constant refreshment with addition of new cards/mechanics. Many games does the spoiler couple months before the new set release. Personally, I prefer them spoiling more earlier with smaller pieces. I know we cannot use them yet, but it just keep our mind fresh, and excitement going.
The best model that I have seen is perhaps ones with Infinity Wars. In any event, I don’t think HEX will be releasing Set.2 anytime soon but here is already a spoiler from the set. Although it’s just one card, it is part of a cycle i.e. each shard will have their equivalent, so we can guess what they gonna be based on the theme of each shard.
First of all, alpha test has not started yet. Supposedly, invitation will be sent at 6:30PM today for those who donated Grand King and above during the kickstarter ($500). Even those of you who are still not getting the access today, all the cards are now revealed (for PvP) and yours to download and carry around anywhere in a format of PDF.
If you are long time follower of this blog, you know I like deck classifications. More deck type the game supports, more variety we will see while we actually play the game. It appears to be a general tendency that early stage of dTCG focuses more on the Aggro Archetype support, and some control archetype but rarely much of the combo. Combo archetype are fun, but without a good balance it can be a balance breaker. We have already seen a support for the alt-win deck type, but today we got another card for such strategy. Today, this card will change the Mill deck type. It now becomes a real winning strategy/deck.
HEX alpha is certainly coming. Several fan sites had received 2 card pictures for exclusive spoiler on their site. Here are three so far, and I am sure HexVault will have one more near future, and HEXRealm has 2. One of which I reviewed myself and the post is ready to be published whenever the admin decides to.
*Updated: More cards are spoiled by couple other sites.
These are all from the slide on Hex Vault. I basically zoomed in and did screen capture on those cards that have not previously been revealed (as far as I know). There are basically 11 cards here. *Supposedly, 3 of these had already been revealed in the past. So technically, 8 new cards (including token).
