It’s been 15 months since Valve announced Artifact to a… less than excited crowd at The International 2017. Unlike that crowd, we were excited right from the start. How could we not be? A card game made with esports as the main focus, designed by Richard Garfield, the best CG designer of all time, and made by a company known for just getting things right. These factors combined make Artifact the esport to watch out for in 2019 and made our decision to create DrawTwo, a competitively focused Artifact site, an easy one.
We started looking at what we could do and one thing kept popping up: starting out with a new esport isn’t easy. You’re gonna need help, no matter if you’re a hardcore player hoping to go pro or a casual pleb with the goal of just beating your friends. Even if you have experience in other card games, Artifact is a different type of game. I mean three boards? Initiative? I don’t know if I should be excited or scared of the depth that adds to the game. That’s why we’ve chosen to move away from the community site model we’ve used so far. DrawTwo is a resource site for Artifact players. Our goal is to make you the best Artifact player you can be. And we have some big plans.
Hit the ground running
As previously mentioned, we want you to hit the ground running as Artifact hits the market. We’ve prepared an array of articles aimed at bringing you up to speed with the game before even playing it. We have something for everyone. We have content from some of the best Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering players of all time and the top players from the beta. These are the three articles we think you’ll be able to use right away.
