Chronicle: RuneScape Legends transitions into open beta

    
21

Advertising itself as having “no mana, no minions, and definitely no random number generation,” Chronicle: RuneScape Legends offers players a different kind of digital card game. The best part? You can play it right now, thanks to its release into the waters of open beta testing.

The card game spin-off from the popular MMO RuneScape offers both PvP and PvE encounters and seeks to “shake up the world of competitive card games.” The open beta launch also introduced the dungeoneering draft mode, and Jagex has promised that old-school RuneScape content was coming next month. Chronicle’s closed beta testing covered over 250,000 games played.

You can check out some of Chronicle’s screenshots as well as its open beta trailer below.

PizzaDoh like dorn said, the only thing unique about Hearthstone is the Blizzard touch and the accessibility they are famous for.  Other than that it is a bare bones experience.

Not sure why they chose to pitch this as a card game (aside from the obvious surf on the CCG wave). The way it seems to play would have been better off as game pieces.

I played closed beta for about 20 minutes, and decided it was enough for a lifetime. 
It’s a very different game from most card games, in the sense that you don’t fight your opponent. Instead, you’re fighting yourself in a way. You place your creature cards on the field so that your own hero character can fight those creatures. To be honest, I forgot how you’re supposed to win a fight (I played only 20 mins and it was months ago). I think you could do damage to your enemy directly when your hero reached the end of its path or something.

While this idea is somewhat refresing, the graphics, sound and animations made it seem like this game was developed in 2000 rather than 2015. If you prefer a smooth and modern look and feel to your games, stay out of this one.
