Important announcement - Game Releasing on Steam

Postby Stone » 08 Feb 2019, 18:21

Dear players,

First of all, let me take the chance to thank you all for your support and comments during the last months. While we know there are many areas of improvement in our games, we will all agree in the fact that one of the most important facts that affect the game in general is the lack of players, or at least concurrent players.

It's been said dozens of times that we sadly do not have the budget to invest in marketing campaigns, let's be clear -and we are being completely honest here- that we have attempted 4 or 5 times to invest quite large amounts of money (at least very large for a company of 2 developers) to try to increase the player database by acquiring new people for the game. Sadly these campaigns have resulted in a total failure, since we never got to acquire enough players to recoup the investments.

That's why we decided to port the game to Steam. We do believe and hope that we will get some return here in terms of amounts of players, that at least will suffice to fill up the PvP queue and will add some life to the servers. Valve is already in the process of reviewing the build of the game, and we have planned the release next February 22nd. For those interested, here's the already approved official Store Page (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1019 ... ar_II_TCG/).

We do believe this is good news for everybody, and we really thank you guys for the support and patience you have towards the game.

Of course it comes without saying that we are still actively working on the game bugs and new content for you guys.

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm afraid you can't link your mobile game to the steam version. About your other question, we've some discussions about what to do for new payers (despite they have the option to craft the normal version) and if we implement a way to unlock crafted battle pass after a period of time.

Everything that brings new players is good for all players ;)

Not sure on how game real-world economics are going...hope it is a profitable project...

Marketing is key these days i guess...

Hi guys, as you all now by now, we launched the game on Steam this Saturday. Just to quickly brief you about how it's going, we thought it'd be nice if we wrote a post to let you know. The overall launch is quite alright, right now we are getting around 800-1000 new users every day which is an amusing amount compared to what we had before the launch (around 100-150 new installs/day). To be honest, the first 7-14 days are crucial to us because, depending on many factors, Valve's Steam algorithms can modify the game's visibility and hence, get more installs. Our aim with this release is to dramatically increase the game's user database as you know so there can be more fair and fast pvp queues, more platoons, and more competition.

We noticed that they do have into account the positive game reviews so, in case anyone around has tried the game, enjoyed its Steam version and finally has the time to write a small review of the game it would mean so much for us.

We have got quite some nice suggestions as well which we will study to add in the game soon so, please feel free to write them down if you want to ;). As a side note, we are already working on a new Expansion of the game, which will have around 100 new cards which will be added along 2 or 3 updates!

Thanks!!

p.s.: Spread the word, please!

Hi

Is great news that steam release is going well, and thanks for letting us know!

It's a shame can't link mobile and steam accounts, any chance this might change in the future?

All the best with growing the game.

Hello,

It's currently impossible for now, while they share raids, pvp,... the structure is different between mobile and Steam. We're now working on a update (with the feedback received) to improve the game and after that we'll keep working on the new expansion.

As mentioned the launch on steam means more players and this will increase the players on PvP, Platoons,.. and the feedback received is helping us to keep improving the game. As we mentioned if any of you try the Steam version would be really helpful if you write a review so the game gains visibility and more players will join us.

Hello,

We're on the early stages of the expansion (as we did the launch on Steam and we're working on some improvements that will take effect before the expansion) so the amount of info that we can share is really small.

I'll create a topic next week where I'll update (weekly) with information on the expansion so you can see the steps that we're taking.
