It is like a ghost town in here and I rarely meet any forum users online anymore.
So what are you up to? Any good games that substitute ACR we should know about? I'm looking for something like ACR that takes about 5 minutes and can be picked up and dropped easily. Haven't found anything with the same level of strategy and depth.

Even though the forum isn't very active, I think a lot of members are still playing. I just played Muhammad_Ali about 4 times tonight and a few other members from time to time. It's just that there's nothing to discuss right now; no new strategies, no new deck concepts, etc. I do hope an expansion would come out soon - it would be nice to have something new.

I usually still play for my daily 500. I do mostly run into the same people with the same boring but competitive decks or complete noobs though. No idea where I will be spending my daily 500... still hoping for an update, but I'm afraid that Hurdler left because the game was put on hold.
On the other hand the game is running fine now, the market is responsive. Looks like the server(s) simply couldn't handle big amount of players.
And f.y.i. my favorite deck at the moment is heavily inspired by your league deck (called LurifaxB)! I usually play that or my Tyler-Liu deck (when I'm feeling evil). It's based on mass destruction (surprise doomsday, you know...). Yes I've started naming my decks after players I saw it play first...

Hmm, looks like I should give the game a try again. I didn't play for two weeks or so due to connectivity issues. Instead I turned to 'analogue' TCGs: I retrieved my old Star Trek CCG Cards from the cellar and met a few friends who still played this hilariously ill-balanced game in its 1st Edition (see www.trekcc.org/). Great fun! Did anyone of you play this game by any chance? T'was in the 1990s and 2000s...
Yeah I think ubi put this on hold also. It's sad, to me the best version of this game was its initial release. The problem seems to me that they didn't know how to transition this game from short term profits to long term sustainability. Poor management probably.

Has Ubi ever had any long term games like an MMO? I can't recall any as far as I can tell. Companies like Valve had experimented with properties like Team Fortress and it paid off for them stepping into a long-term model.
In that regard Ubi is still counting on their $60 releases rather than sustainable platform models. What a shame...
I've been playing physical games Thunderstone is pretty good. Then cos of that I got into Ascension, which is not nearly as good (I don't like that it's too tactical and not long-term strategic enough) but at least I understand it now.
Then some more board/card games on iPad: San Juan is pretty good Elder Sign is fun Yucata.de's Thunderstone works on iPad and is free, fun.
