    I lol when I read the word "beta", all they've been doing for years is release betas. I should suggest them to finish their game before start doing another stuff.

    lol because people actually care about scrolls at all.

    It's kinda telling that you need to attach "Minecraft" to any story Scrolls related or no one would care.

    Yes indeed, maybe Mojang would've been a better choice of word. Then we could've clicked blindly on said thread having no clue who we were talking about.

    The title is incredibly fitting - "Scrolls" as in "Everyone scrolls past the title in utter indifference."

    Mojang sucks at making games, Minecraft is fun but it's coded horribly and they haven't done enough with it, it still feels too Beta.

    Wow... maybe this is not what I was expecting. How the fuck do you go from building an entire new genre to... you know... this? Generic online TCG with microtransactions... smooth. How come nobody ever figured that genre out, eh? :glare: Not like I am a big fan of Minecraft or anything, but the step away from innovation is just to big to ignore.

    Any of them sell 20 million copies and spawn a dozen now well-established derivative games? Terraria is a best-selling Minecraft-style sandbox which isn't based on voxels, but would otherwise not exist without said game's heavy influence. Your proposition is akin to asking if there weren't 3D action-adventure games before Ocarina of Time. They did, but it's not like it matters once one games comes and consolidates the genre.

    Consolidation and creation are two waaaayyy different things.

    If you want to say Minecraft is popular and created loads of spin-offs thats one thing. But building is hardly the right word.

    And I would love to see this 'dozen' of well-established games Minecraft inspired. Other then Ace of Spades and Terraira I havent heard of any other 'minecraft-style' that are even nearly as popular as it, and im being nice about Ace of Spades, its only really popular among dedicated Minecraft players)

    Looks like a watered down version of magic the gathering tactics.

    What is so bad about it? ...cause people think that it would be overshadowed by other card games or it somehow seems too ugly/unpolished?
    (just trying to understand the main reasons of disappointment in here)

    They didn't really build the genre, they really just raised the platform, but the platform has arguably raised higher than Minecraft with games like Terraria and Cube World (Name not final).

    Mojang is going to crash and burn. Minecraft might have somehow become a sleeper hit, but Markus Persson does not deserve any of the praise that's constantly heaped on him by fans and the gaming press. Minecraft was a horribly made, unfinished, and broken game that was pushed out the door in Beta and had a "final version" label slapped on it.

    Scrolls...I'm sure that will be a huge success. Spend $20 to have the opportunity to pay micro-transactions to Notch so you can play with pretend cards on the computer....sounds fun.
