Now you can finally play it! I jest, I think at this point, everyone who wanted it already has it. Now, however, the beta is officially over and anyone can play with or without a beta code. It's odd to me that this game that's been the subject of major eSports tournaments wasn't officially released until today.

The big news for me is that there are official Mac and Linux versions on the way! They're currently testing it internally and will be releasing them soon. There may be more beta out of this thing yet.

Did you see the FAQ?

It's coming for both. Not sure if your comment was an "I'm looking forward to these" or an "I wish these would happen."

I didn't see the FAQ, thanks for posting that. Really happy Valve is leading the pack of Triple A developers that port everywhere.

I just played it on my Macbook and its a pretty good port. I ran into a few glitches but nothing drastic. They made a few changes to the game(mostly cosmetic) since I played last. The passive bots are much simpler than they used to be as well.

I just got started with it a few nights ago and the Linux build runs fairly well. My processor isn't the best so I toned down some of the complexity. Looks like a game I could kill more than a few hours playing.

Sad, though, that training cards only drop by purchasing content.

You are entitled to a few free drops like any other game. Then you have to spend if you want more. Or purchase a "booster pack" like every other game on steam after you get your initial drops
