HeroClix Online02-21-2011: Our friends at ICV2 have uncovered some new facts about HeroClix Online. According to ICV2, HeroClix Online will be a PC-Based game that will launch this Spring or Summer, duplicating the table-top feeling as much as possible. The development is being handled by Icarus Studios LLC, who also made the Fallen Earth MMO.

From ICV2:
WizKids’ Lax Chandra told ICv2 that Magic Online was the model for what WizKids is trying to do with HeroClix Online: “We definitely don’t want to cannibalize sales with the online game. This is meant to be completely non-cannibalistic, as much as we can.  Our goal is to bring back players.  We want to recapture players who got married or whatever, stopped going to the stores, and stopped playing the game. We want to give them a way to play at home, play against someone online. We’re going to have rewards (in the online game) that drive players into the stores.”

Magic Gathering OnlineFor those who are not familiar, Magic Online acts exactly like the Magic The Gathering Cardgame at your gaming table, and has been around since 2002. There is no monthly or yearly fee, but there is a $9.99 registration fee which also gives you one-free-booster pack (of 300 virtual cards). Online, you "open" the booster pack just as you would in real life.

As for stocking your Magic-Online inventory, you have to "buy" additional virtual booster/starter packs, which are the exact same price as a real pack in your hands (I was able to use my credit card for these purchases). Virtual purchased cards are saved on the master server, so you can login from any machine with the client software (free) and instantly see your cards and saved decks.

It's also easy to trade on Magic-Online. One person I played against felt bad that I had such a horrible deck, so he gave me a few dozen virtual rare cards to boost up my inventory.

Please note: we don't yet know what price Wizkids will be setting!

Anywho, here's hopeing the HeroClix Online software will have all these nice touches too. Will you try HeroClix Online?

Remember there pirate game that sony was running. Great game but the virtual packs where expensive. Then sony closed shop and everyone that spent there money on virtual packs got stuck with nothing to show for their money. Be careful with spending your money on virtual packs. After awhile you can spend all this money on it and if they close the site because of low use you are out of all that money. It happened to me with the pirate game.

SORRY, Does one of you know an trust worthy online shop, that does shipment to holland.. There not

an single store that has them even online shops in belgium as well....

@The Le: I'd imagine that we might all get a different Virtual Figure, a promo of the next set or something of the sort

Posted by: refrusdraob on 6/30/2011 3:13:17 PM
@refrusdraob: Shipping and handling for the brick give-away is much more, and traditionally it requires a purchase of an entire brick. It's 99% likely that the free figure is virtual only. I hope they don't give us a crappy virtual figure -- I'd be pretty annoyed about that.

Posted by: The Le on 6/26/2011 3:13:18 PM
@The Le, thank you but it could always be a redemption code to send away for something, think paying shipping and handling for a brick figure idk but thank you again

Posted by: refrusdraob on 6/26/2011 11:56:10 AM
@refrusdraob: I haven't a clue, but it is STRONGLY implied that it is a virtual figure. After all, it says the free figure "will be awarded when we officially launch!"

It makes no sense if it's a physical figure. They'd lose money on shipping alone, not to mention it really doesn't help HCOnline if it were a physical booster since most people would buy it just to get the free figure and never come back.

Posted by: The Le on 6/26/2011 8:46:46 AM
@The Le, do you know if the exclusive figure to be given out at the launch of the game is going to be physical or virtual? Can you find out please, I know you have better resources than I.

Posted by: refrusdraob on 6/26/2011 7:47:01 AM
I play MtGO and while its great for those who cant get out to the stores it is really a choose one or the other thing. The card packs are exactly the same price as they are for the real cards. The bonus on MTGO is that the more you log in and buy you get points that add up to a foil card or alternate art of a card. Also if you get a full set of cards you can turn them in (by giving them up out of your collection) and they send you a physical full set. So if they did the same thing here you get your full set of Giant Size X-Men. Turn them in (loosing them) and they send you a full set.

While Im not sure if they are going this way with Heroclix Online. This is some things they have done with MTGO, from the article it looks like it will be simular.

Thanks dude...didnt get a beta key yet...pretty much what i expected and thank you kindly for the vid...WILL PURCHASE EXPEDITIOUSLY!!!

SurferFlash had to agree to an NDA agreement and legally can't share this! He could be sued, and should honestly know better.

Posted by: Ironman1994 on 3/15/2011 1:46:17 PM
wow. something that I could be tempted by, depending on what software its running on etc. still looks maybe too complicated than it should be

Posted by: elliott on 3/15/2011 9:08:33 AM
I still think this should be looped into the price of physical boosters through codes that you can enter to unlock the clix pulled from that pack

Posted by: James T Quirk on 3/15/2011 6:36:34 AM
Sweet baby Jesus , this looks good ! Please make it Playstation online accessible !

Posted by: Andrew on 3/15/2011 5:45:21 AM
I know one thing the "virtual packs" had better be cheap, since you really won't ever have anything to show for them. 99 cents per pack sounds good.

Posted by: Phil on 3/4/2011 12:09:40 PM
I agree some with thoughts...if you buy real booster, you should get 1 to 1 online booster. Initial registration fee should give you a base set, then you can pay for real boosters and get credit, or buy online boosters at steep discount. No duplicates allowed.

Posted by: im2112 on 3/3/2011 3:18:43 PM
Too bad they can't make some kind of scanner that could scan a barcode on the bottom of a physical heroclix that would then put it in your virtual gallery . Then through winning you could earn points to choose from virtual figs you're missing in physical set . This could promote people going out to buy the physical pieces when they find something with stats they end up liking that they may not have thought about previously . Then the only money to spend would be the scanner , the program would be included and offer a way to keep track of your collections and team building options , even tutorials with better players to help teach how do use figs better (Larfleeze would be great example as people seems to have hard time with his complexity ) Although there should be a way to "purchase" virtual figs for newbies interested in the game but not sure if the want to drop the $ down for a case of the latest set to find if they like it or not .

Posted by: Andrew on 2/28/2011 7:28:40 PM
I'm not sure I like the idea of buying virtual figs, either.

Really, *I* think the game should be a purely electronic thing, simulating gameplay. The player should have a basic set of figs to choose from, and then with continued gameplay, be able to *unlock* new figures, new sets, LEs, chases, what have you. Maybe with accumulated victory points against the computer-opponent in single play, and then the opportunity to go online and smite one's friends, maybe getting points from that, too. Points-for-KOs would be friendly, since one would still gain points with KOs, even if you 'lose' the game. Very friendly.

Posted by: Juxter on 2/27/2011 10:23:06 AM
I agree with the consensus; why pay for Virtual figures, when I can get real ones?

I see the excitement in playing (I don't get to much either), but the money thing is the big issue. Especially with the line-up announced this year. If the regular boosters had a code to "open" an online booster, then that would be great. Even the other way around, where if you buy "X" amount online, you get rewards, or points, towards future real boosters. Of course, with the latter, WK would need to do more on their end.

The bottom line is: How much will this cost?

Posted by: ShadowMark on 2/25/2011 12:13:14 PM
Okay, the thing about this is that casual players of heroclix will want to play using chase figures and stuff because they DON'T want to spend a whole lot of dough on buying a whole bunch of packs or paying TOO MUCH for a figure from a collector. This game will make it so that Heroclix is more easily playable with other people, but it will defeat the purpose of playing actual clix. If this is succesful people will less likely buy real clix. If this was free, then I would play once in a while to have a good match and for practice, but I actually don't play it THAT much to begin with. I'm more interested in making customs.

Posted by: Dreadnaught on 2/22/2011 5:50:56 PM
Hec yeah, I'll play! I rarely get to play Heroclix these days, even though I'm in love with it.

Posted by: Owlman166 on 2/22/2011 8:38:07 AM
Oh, heck yes I would play! I barely ever get to play real clix these days because of my location and because the friends I played with moved.

Posted by: Preacher13 on 2/22/2011 12:24:51 AM
A lot of Poo Poo nare do wells out there . Not all of us have players nearby or a game store . Myself I have an extra problem with finding spare time , it's called wife and kids . I can't make it to tournaments and other big games held at local comic shop " by locale I mean 1 hour drive" . I'm very interested in trying it out , as long as it's a one time fee . It could be a good way for people like myself who usually only play once a month to get some practice in , so if we ever do make it to a tournament we don't get ousted first round . Maybe make it so if you buy a case you can send in receipt for a full set of virtual figs .

Posted by: Andrew Peele on 2/21/2011 6:59:03 PM
Sounds good!!! In that way I'm no gonna be sad if there is none to play with on weekend!!!

Posted by: JasonCR on 2/21/2011 2:10:57 PM
Nope. .and it will fail. What would make the game work is if in he physical boosters you got a coupon that credited you for the online version. Then you would see some action.

Posted by: johnwhite on 2/21/2011 1:49:11 PM
I dunno, I have my doubts on this. I for one will not be paying any $ for virtual ANYTHING. Now, if there's some way that my physical figures are able to be translated into virtual ones, then yes. That's why I don't play WoW or DC Universe. I mean, what happens to my $ if WK goes under again? I'll have lost all that virtual junk. But at least w/ the plastic figs I've always got something tangible that can be used for other things.

Posted by: JD on 2/21/2011 12:15:33 PM
buying virtual packs?? that stinks

if i buy a booster i want to be able to have the figures,your just paying for thin air

Posted by: elliott on 2/21/2011 11:50:55 AM
I hope its more like chaotic where each card has a unique code to activate it.

Posted by: nick wilfong on 2/21/2011 10:48:43 AM
Nice for those without venues. Buying virtual packs at normal cost seems steep.

Posted by: scourge101 on 2/21/2011 9:55:39 AM

I wonder what the rewards are and if this will connect to Organized Play any?
