New Faction!
Open Beta
Description
Release date: Released
War of Omens is a digital CCG/Deck-Builder hybrid card game featuring fast, strategic battles and four distinct, playable factions.

War of Omens is a strategic card game set in a dark fantasy world, depicting the evolving political and military struggle between three distinct, warring factions. War of Omens combines elements from CCGs like Magic: the Gathering, Tyrant, or Pokémon and Deck-Builders like Dominion, Thunderstone, and Quarriors. We call this type of game a Collectible Deck-Builder.

Players will be able to collect cards and customize their decks, just like in CCGs, but as they sit down to play individual games of War of Omens they'll be buying their cards from the bank each turn, as if they're playing a deck-builder. Opponents in War of Omens will have their own, separate deck; there are no public cards. Players will be able to use their victories to earn new cards, expanding their options, unlocking new strategies, and building their collections over time.

War of Omens features four factions: the Daramek, the Vespitole, the Metris, and the Endazu. Each one of these factions is completely distinct: they look different, have different in-game mechanics, and have completely different, original storylines. Each faction also has four distinct heroes except for the Endazu who has one for now but other heroes will be released. These heroes differ not only in appearance, but in their special abilities that are utilized throughout gameplay. Even within a single faction, play styles and strategies vary wildly because of the differences between the three heroes. Some favor offense, while others favor defense. Each is designed to complement and enhance an aspect of their faction's overall style and mechanics.

Because players can only choose one faction per battle, and because the factions play and feel so different from one another, favorite strategies and emergent gameplay are commonplace in War of Omens.

I'd love to see an update to this game. The writing is fantastic, the balancing is excellent, the lore shows great potential.

The biggest complaint was the multiplayer, where beginners were paired against high level players.But not only did they find a good solution for that with drafts where all players draw their cards instead of using their existing ones, the single player is also entertaining enough.

They could release the game as it is right now, and I'd happily pay five bucks for it. Neddless to say, I would prefer a continuation of the story mode and future updates to that :)

This game will just die. I have played almost every CCG out there, Im addicted to all of them, and this is the most frustrating one. The gameplay is awesome, I love it, but I can only play against the AI because the tournaments (draft) are sealed until I have different heroes (which is a lot of grinding), and multiplayer is impossible to play for a new player because you are so gimped compared to the rest it is enfuriating and not fun at all.

No new players will stay, if I was unable, I am quite sure 90% of the people wont either.

Agreed with many others re: mm. It's pretty bad. Noobies are paird with decked out vets all the time, there doesn't seem to be any ranking whatsoever...and unfortunately, that makes the game P2W unless the new player is wanting to grind, grind, grind (several weeks) in order to even be relatively competitive with all the elite decks out there.

The campaign mode was fun, but it's short. And the next level (you can redo the campaign on the next difficulty) is like going from stage 0-60mph. It's just so weird how a game can be developed with so little balance in mind.

This game has some clever concepts, but my interest quickly faded into frustration at how often the flow of the game is out of your control.

great game, poor matchmaking. since i quit kongregate, but bought the humble bundle, i'm on a new account (@warofomens.com) with no tier 3 cards and just the humble coin. 80% of my multiplayer matches have been up against guys with >5 epic coins; some are fully decked with all tier 3 cards.

i would've thought that they improved the matchmaking algorithm after so many months... guess i'm wrong.

the fact that the game has no in-game chat just makes it more frustrating when facing an imbalanced match-up. if u like to say "gg" or "sempai have mercy", you have to play on kongregate and use their chat.

Not my Cup O' Tea. But just because I'm not interested, that don't mean others won't like it.

If this game were a woman, I would marry it.
