Miller is a Wizards of the Coast veteran and actually got his start in the games industry as a judge on Magic events. “You know, it’s hard to overstate the importance, right?” Miller told ComicBook.com when asked about the importance of organized play to lorcana disney success. “Arguably one of the most important. Because without organized play, if I can’t find someone to play against, it doesn’t matter how good the game is, right? If I can’t find a community to trade and talk about decks If I can’t find my people, then I’m not going to get in the game.” Miller added that organized play helped build the community surrounding the game, which he considered “critical”, especially when a game has depth and a strategy that allows for multiple deck types.

Miller noted that it was a “top down” decision to focus on building a community and introducing new players to the community. “We realize that people are going to want to do competitive tournaments, and you absolutely can do it under our system if you want to,” Miller said. “But our goal is to create this league environment where your participation matters a lot. You earn points toward various hosted game prizes by showing up, playing games, and doing various activities. It’s not just about winning. You earn points for winning, but also you earn points for losing. We just want you to come play and meet other players. And then those points, as you go higher and higher, you’ll get various rewards, mostly in the form of organized play promotions.

It was important to Miller and the other creators of lorcana disney to create a system that not only supports competitive players, but also people who just want to come and enjoy lorcana. “We want to make sure that the organized play system isn’t intimidating,” Miller said, noting that the game could attract a lot of atypical players because of the “Disney magic” that surrounds the game. By creating a system that encourages Miller believes that the The organized play system can help both veteran players and people trying a competitive card game for the first time.

While organized play will initially focus on major hobby stores, Miller said there are plans for larger events that have a competitive format, though he was unable to provide further details.

Miller mentioned both the draft format and multiplayer as possible competitive formats: ravensburger he is actively testing the draft format and the cards are worded specifically to not assume there is only one opponent.

“One of the things I would love about this game as far as multiplayer is concerned is the fact that since we’re competing against a total, there’s no player elimination,” Miller said of the organized multiplayer play. game all the time until the game ends, all players can play. That’s a really fun aspect of multiplayer. lorcanaSo we absolutely want it to be a component of Organized Play at some point.” Initially, Organized Play will “unify” around one type of experience, but branching is definitely a possibility in the future.

When asked about the potential to embrace fan-created formats in the future, similar to how Commander has become one of Magic: The Gathering’s most popular formats, Miller seemed particularly excited to see what the community comes up with. “The community design formats from the community are amazing,” said Miller. “We’ve seen them in other games, and I absolutely hope to see them in Lorcana. And we also want to get our fingers on the pulse of the community in that regard as well. One of my favorite parts of trading card games is this conversation, this endless conversation that you have with your players. It always comes and goes, and it’s wonderful. When it’s done right, it becomes a really amazing experience, and we want to make sure we’re a part of that conversation.”

As for the prizes themselves, Miller said that the promo cards will be alternative treatments of existing cards, not “mechanically unique” promo cards, as that doesn’t fit in the spirit of lorcana disney being an accessible card game. However, the foil promo card selected for organized play will be chosen based on two factors: its playability and the theme. “I think we have an exciting group of cards that we’re looking at for organized play,” Miller said. “Of course, everyone wants their deck to be as shiny as possible, and I’m no exception to that. So if people want [add bling to their deck]This is one of the ways they can do it.”

Additionally, promo cards will come with exclusive pins that will be new for each season of play. “We know Disney fans love their pins, and this is one of the ways they’ll be able to earn them. So it’s very exciting. It’s very exciting.”
