Duel of Champions was recently released on Steam and it is now much faster to load and upgrade than the previous stand-alone version. With this release they’ve also included 120 Steam Achievements that are tied to the achievements you can win in-game so that you can show them off directly through your Steam account publicly.
Want to know how to play Magic the Gathering (MTG) cheap and use your old cards in the process? Read about MTG Standard Pauper below.
Where it comes to Trading Card Games I believe there’s not a single person out there that didn’t begin his/her journey by playing Magic, the Gathering. There are actually other TCGs that started around the same time as MTG and Legend of the 5 Rings, which I’m 99.9% dedicated to these days, was one of them but still none of them managed to grow so fast and become as popular as MTG due to its simple concept, its easy to learn rules and the massive amount of marketing, tournaments and prize money involved.
Eventually I developed a love-hate relationship with the ultra competitive environment that surrounded MTG and that was the main reason why I stopped playing the game after Urza’s cycle, that and the huge amount of money one had to throw at the game in order to get the cards necessary to develop a competitive deck. It all started being less about having fun and more about spending and earning money through the game which really lowered the sportsmanship aspect of it and turned some matches into horrible experiences with really obnoxious players.
