Lord of Vermilion Arena

We’re sorry to report today that Square-Enix is sunsetting Lord of Vermilion Arena. We first covered the MOBA, which was based on the Lord of Vermilion card game, almost exactly a year ago, just before it hit open beta in Japan.

The Google-translated official site says that “in view of the current state of the service situation” it is “difficult to continue” the game, and so it will end on June 30th, 2016. Purchases will end on May 26th, but the team is planning a final campaign toward the end of the month.

ArekCraft  “Lord of Verminion” That’s the joke.

The funny thing is SE are trying to put the series into a genre it doesn’t really work it, all the time ignoring the simple fact…

It’s a card gamecomment image

Honestly DO THAT with the series again on mobile (hell even VR) with the actual cards translating into digital packs and/or just buy digitally (Pokemon TCG still does this) and the game WILL take off..

The VR side is streaming for a known IP to do a CCG and with Hearthstone/Duels opening up the market to the likes of Hex and Elder Scrolls now is the perfect time to relaunch

Well, as much as I hate to see games fail so fast…seeing the gameplay from steparu kind of explained why. It hurt my eyes – every thing was so loud.

I thought i read “lords of verminion” just as i was getting into that in FFXIV :p

Still another day another dead moba, hard to consider anything of value lost, harsh but thats my reaction to the genre.
