So, valve has stopped dev on artifact for the 2nd time. ….. sadness, pure sadness, I put so much money in. Money, I shouldn’t have. I liked both versions. Anyway, so last year I loved 3 complex games, artifact, artifact 2 electric boogaloo, and 5d chess. The story with each is the same I feel, an insanely steep learning curve with a first-order strategy that hurts the new players, into a decline in play base and this handful of theory crafters solving the high end of the game without the devs reacting to balance problems.
