An update for the behavior of “Artifact” addressing concerns about revenue from games and card distribution was announced by Valve on Sunday.
In response to “overwhelming amount of feedback on all parts of the game” Valve has made changes in the digital trading card game, some of which are already active since the publication of the public beta on Sunday.
After Valve lifted its NDA for the private beta, many players criticized the game’s payment model, some of which is the way the players have to spend event tickets to train the draft node. In response to this feedback, Valve changed its policy, effective in the current public beta version.
“The preparation is incredibly fun, but it can also be very scary,” the update post says. “We agree that it is important to have a way of exercising before entering a more competitive position. In the next Artifact beta building, anyone who has claimed their starting content will find a Casual Phantom Draft glove available in the Casual Play section. “
Another change made effective to the public is that players can now play drafting events with friends available by selecting Call to Arms Phantom Draft” in all user-created tournaments. “
A third change, not yet alive, addresses the player’s view that double starters issued in card packages would be wasteful. To remedy this, Valve will add a system that will allow players to recover their unwanted cards in turn for event tickets. Valve notes that this feature will be added once before the end of the beta period.
