The Future

by

By now you’ve probably seen the news.  If not, see this announcement from Upper Deck.

Well, this obviously isn’t a surprise.  But I am surprised just how sad it makes me to see the official announcement.  This is a damn shame.  Yeah, the writing has been on the wall for a long time.  But it’s sad news nonetheless.

Is Vs. dead?  No.  The fans will keep the game alive.  People will continue playing with the cards Upper Deck released.  And we will continue to provide new content.

The original DCU project started in response to the announcement that there would be no new DC content for Vs.  Now that there will be no new official content for Vs, the guys on the project have re-dedicated themselves to the idea of putting out top-flight fan-made content.

What can you expect from us?  You’ll get the best fan-made sets we can deliver.  DCU was fun, but it wasn’t polished enough.  Our next set, DFC, will be better.  We’ve been hard at work on it for months.  Currently, we are knee-deep in playtesting to make sure this set stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the best sets Upper Deck ever released.

I can’t tell you exactly when DFC will be released.  I do not want to put it out there unfinished like we did with DCU.  But we will give you updates here as they become available.

After DFC, the future’s a little less certain.  We may branch out into Marvel content.  We’ll probably take on a few new team members as we ramp up our output.  And, I’d like to go back and polish DCU someday.  Whatever the future holds,  you can count on us to provide new Vs. content.

The game will not die as long as the fans want to continue playing it.

    Consider me an enthusiastic volunteer for any future design projects.

    I got into the party late on the DCU thing, but I have been helping out with ideas on the DFC set through contact with Matt Rex (tomifune@hotmail.com). I’d love to be more involved with the process. I have been working on a Marvel Annihilation Conflict mini-set which has cards posted in a thread in the Fantasy forum at VSRealms. Check it out and let me know what you think. I am good with photoshop and that sorta thing, and while I am not a huge fan of MSE due to its limitations on replicating VS cards accurately, I would be more than willing to lend a hand to helping shape up DFC to make it look and play as amazing and as official as possible.

    I’m discussing how we want to go about adding new members with the guys. Once we’ve reached a decision, I’ll update the blog.
