I see Tony has been posting on BGG Mage Wars forums recently to answer questions. He is 'LoreChase' on the BGG forums.

I also received email from Arcane Wonders announcing a live broadcast to update fans with the latest product news. I believe it is scheduled for this coming Wednesday. You may want to check your junk email or Promotion folders to see if you received one. Mine went into a Promotion folder in Googlemail which I do not always check every day.

Thatís nice- Coshade released the overview of the Druid academy expansion, but the community is silent on that. Dice Tower Essentials threads on these forums are basically dead at this point as well. We went through the month of September without a single comment on the discussion forums; Iím pretty sure that Iíve been seeing ghosts here for the last month

I got mine in my emails as well, but there really isnít any point to looking at it: I donít think theyíll be advertising or making any kind of MW Arena set again

While the lack of enthusiasm and generally the lack of information from official Arcane Wonders employees is concerning, we do at least know that a Monk and a Necromancer are coming to Academy very soon, since it would seem to have been a last-minute decision to release Druid and Elementalist ahead of these other two Academy mages as evidenced by the misprinted menu of pre-release product available at GenCon 2018.

After that, there has been nothing official or even hinted at, to my knowledge, and there has been quite a bit of pessimism regarding the likelihood of any future product made specifically for Arena. At this point, it is unlikely we'll see a new mage, let alone the long-promised "RPG-like" play mode and/or the Archmage Battlegrounds expansion that had some art spoiled a couple years ago.

What frustrates is that this is what they have been doing from the beginning: they released plenty of concept art years ago, so we always knew that the Siren and Male Forcemaster would be released (for example), but it takes them years to actually develop the art into an actual expansion. So here we are, waiting for the last bit of content, but there is so little word of what is going on that we have to wonder whether or not Arcane Wonders is actually going forward with all of this.

Monk and Necromancer for Academy? What about Arena?

AW clearly consider Academy is the way of the future - being simpler and quicker in concept and play. Given that Academy cards can all be used in Arena, then the view seems to be that both games are being serviced.

Of course, if they thought the academy releases also serviced Arena, it would have been nice if the Academy Elementalist also came packaged with an Arena Elementalist ability card, so we could use the Elementalist in the arena as well. Just one extra card and we all would have been very happy...

I honestly would be okay with that. Assuming they also threw in some proper conjurations as well, and maybe some zone enchantments. But it'd be better if they gave Mage Wars Arena some proper love too.

They abandoned Arena at gen con guys. Arena gets nothing else. Hence the silence. Arena players are pissed off. And rightly so says I. That's why I'm not here anymore.

Lol I donít think I would have ever expected you to say something like this here on the forums  :-\ You were always one of the more optimistic and loyal customers to the Mage Wars brand.

Probably too much work for them  ::)

This would be the better approach if the plan behind the scenes is to wind down Arena support in favor of Academy. Expand on the Academy sets to include an Arena-based ability card for the mage in question, and at least a few proper Arena-focused cards in the set as well to go along. Adding maybe 20 cards or so to the current normal size for an Academy pack. I'd even be willing to pay a little more for that add on within each Academy expansion. Like $5 more easy.

Arena was a great game, one of the best ever. Academy doesn't even come close IMO. I really hope they restart Arena or sell the IP to someone who actually wants to.

If that's really true, no more arena expansions.
I will not buy any more academy poducts or anything else from aw.
