If you click the "Two Years in the Making" stuff, it takes you here:
Click the "become a founding member" part, and it takes you to the actual game information (you donít have to become a founding member to get the info)

To be honest, I think I may have figured out part of Dís grand plan for "radically alter[ing] the TCG landscape for years to come."

Well aside from my first impression (Does this whole thing sound at all like the setup for a pyramid scam?), Iíll grant that theyíve got some interesting ideas there (letting the players pick what characters from what get turned into cards; I want a deck based around Odin and the Valkyrie, and another based around King Olaf I....). But what the heck? Very nice try, D, but I am not encouraged....

...besides, isnít this game one huge copyright violation just waiting to happen?
Never kid about politicians. The more bizarre the joke, the more likely it is to come true.

I get the scoop!

10% of everything your player buys for life! Wow!

I probably wonít play the game, because that kinda stuff doesnít interest me, but if I sign up and get a few people to sign up after me, Iíd be happy. Very Happy

They do have licensing, so its not a copyright violation. They also are stealing 4gxgís idea of gamers making the cards. I guess they just donít wanna have all the work, but do want all the money. Very Happy Its a brilliant idea, actually, just couldnít they have picked something better than FightKlub?

Also, the idea of not selling boosters, but selling "kilos" will net them some extra money among players who actually buy. But, Iíd rather they did the $2.99 boosters vs the $30 kilos. Hence why I probably wonít buy. Sad

Meh. Seems underwhelming.
Check out the LoTR TCG Database! My goal is to create a central resource for all kinds of LotR TCG Information. You can have card titles in your posts AutoLink to the card pictures. Cool

Well, I think that this is also underwhelming.

That being said, I signed up for an account. I figured that if it gets popular later and I pick it up, I would want my handle.

I havenít decided about being a mentor or founder or whatever they are calling them. As former volunteers get a free pass, I donít need to decide until the last minute, but I think that there big problem is going to be getting 6000 players, let alone 6000 volunteers.

Iím still calling this as an April Foolís joke, but I guess weíll see.

Iím "TheBlueWizard" here, for Lord of the Rings online, and several other websites.

I would be seriously irked, if I didnít get that "handle" over there too. Its a small thing, but I can be easily annoyed.

For example, some guy in Canada is "TheBlueWizard" on XBox Live. I have to use something else.


PS Its probably not called a handle anymore, but I donít bother to keep up with the terminology.

It sounds intriguing. I am with you guys though. Fight Klub? They could have come up with a better name. It sounds a lot like Anachronism to me. 15 minutes to play? The difference is that the combatants are fictional and not historical. Anyways, I will try. Why not?
