Of course, there is no way of knowing where BattleForge will be in two years' time. Its turn-based cousin, PoxNora, is still going strong, so there may be a market for this sort of gameplay. PoxNora, however, has a stronger tactical game and a clearer use for counter-units. Though BattleForge is a bigger-budget game, it is also a simpler one -- and may not provide the battle jones that most collectible-card duel games are designed to satisfy. As an introduction to card-collecting games, it is superb. As an RTS, it's bare-bones. As a combo, it might be worth a look.
