The game isn't supposed to be popular yet, just developing a small player base while enough content to actually deck and army build is released. That's my hope at least.

I'm not familiar at all with board game marketing. Is this a legit marketing model? Are there examples of it working? While I want to believe it, it seems like a strange way of going about things, and not likely to succeed.
No. The only potential way anything like this works is if word of mouth is your intended marketing campaign. Magic is already well known and doesn't need word of mouth. It needs content.

Re: Hot new rumors for the next Major Expansion! Common Squa

It was just a guess I had. It seems really strange that they are selling this game in Wal-Mart at cheap prices but not advertising it at all. I could see them being worried the game would fail without deckbuilding and armybuilding, so they decided to hold off on marketing until they have enough content to make it appealing to a large amount of people. I don't think it's a good strategy, it's just the only strategy that makes sense to me.

Unhappy Re: Hot new rumors for the next Major Expansion! Common Squa

I think word of mouth is the only advertising AoTP is getting so far. Not a lot of followers on face book and not a lot on their forum. When it released and seen that it didn't blow up had me worried, I do agree with there being more expansions per year. After the new expansion, which it's not even new anymore, I went back to playing heroscape.

Re: Hot new rumors for the next Major Expansion! Common Squa

Based on this thread rumor and the official card game spoilers realeased so far, we got some potential planeswalkers:

Sorin (white and black): vampires and lifelink strategy.
Nahiri (white and red): equipment artifacts releated (colorless cards).
Arlinn Kord (green and red): werewolf and transform strategy (new planeswalker on the card game as well)

There's a jace planeswalker and probably Tamyio. But jace is pure blue, so I'd guess Tamyio is another good planeswalker for the expansion, in the colors of blue (her original color) and white or black.

Re: Hot new rumors for the next Major Expansion! Common Squa

I was kind of disappointed at the first set that all the Planeswalkers were "Human". Give the varity of the worlds It would have been cool to see more diversity.

I like that the first expansion gave us some new species, but It seems not including Ajani (Lion Man) was a missed opportunity.

Sadly, Maro Confirmed 4 PWs in SoI. So Arlinn, Sorin, Jace, Nahiri. There's a chance we get Tamiyo in Eldritch Moon (the expansion nominally doesn't come out until after Eldritch Moon)

Yeah, I was talking about the entire block, not just this first one.

Re: Hot new rumors for the next Major Expansion! Common Squa

these are the walkers so far spoiled for cards, we will most likely see there miniature counter parts. im sure just like the expansion things will tie to the lore and cards.

Re: Hot new rumors for the next Major Expansion! Common Squa

We can bank on Arlinn, Nahiri, and Sorin. The remaining two, though, are more questionable.

A) Who will be in Eldritch Moon? Tamiyo is possible; she'd likely get a slot.
B) Liliana will definitely be showing up in Eldritch Moon. If Tamiyo shows up, would she or Jace get a new figure?
C) Would they create new versions of Jace/Lili or reach for older Innistrad characters instead? Tibalt? Garruk?

Tamiyo OR Jace is a lock, though. They need some Blue in there.

Re: Hot new rumors for the next Major Expansion! Common Squa

I sure hope they don't redo characters. Raelin II and Drake II were to me the big disappointments of Swarm of the Marro, way back when. I want new people. If I want to pump others up, I can start them with treasure glyphs/artifacts!
