Valve pushed Artifact beta to November

What will CCG enthusiasts do with another month?

Artifact enthusiasts were blown away by very disappointing news this weekend. People who attended The International 2018 and registered for Artifact Beta received emails from Valve stating that public beta will start on November 19, although it had originally been promised for October.

This caused a major uproar in r/Artifact and on Discord servers. For some people, especially those who spent hundreds of dollars on beta accounts, this development is extremely disappointing.

Throughout the weekend players survived an emotional rollercoaster, described by Reddit user Baine1:

Another memester released this famous video with very meta subtitles:

Here is a tweet from a person who is now officially allowed to be called “Valve Sage”: 

Thanks to u/DON-ILYA for a card concept:

While there’s a month till the beta release many people just don’t know what to do with their time. We decided to help you fill the time void till that glorious date.

Here is what you should do:

Watch ESL Hamburg. It starts tomorrow and has a packed round robin stage with world class teams like Virtus.Pro and Team Secret.
Watch BlizzCon. It includes world finals in StarCraft 2, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft and Overwatch.
When BlizzСon ends, The Kuala Lumpur Major starts. Artifact beta starts after the Major Finals.
Between watching the games, you can play Gwent and make balance suggestions in on r/Artifact (that seems to be the meta there now).

To all Artifact fans WeWish! you a quick and eventful month. Stay strong!
