9. Roadmap

This Roadmap is not final, changes can be made throughout the development.
TactiCards goals are divided into 3 categories:
  • Core
  • Mid Journey
  • Full Experience
The last two will only be achieved if we can obtain further support and funding to do so.
As readers will guess, TactiCards is not just a mini-game. Our aim is immense. We dream of seeing the game being played by millions of people, and grow as one of the top competitive TCGs in the world. Those are not light purposes, but we will give all of us to make this dream come true.
Most of our goals are not reachable for a small team like us. However, even if have to make this on our own, versions for both physical and digital games will be globally launched, with a complete set of cards and what matters the most; an exciting and incredibly fun game. We make this because of the love we have for the initiative.
In a game categories analogy, we could imagine how the end product will look like: Core - Indie Game. Mid journey - AA game. Full experience - AAA game.
The Full Experience is the dreamed version of TactiCards, with all the features mentioned in this WhitePaper.
The Core Roadmap is the planned path we can cross by our own with the current team, without the needs of external funding. It is detailed in the next section.
Please note that given that the Ronin Blockchain assets and features are in parallel development, some of the blockchain implementation dates could be modified.
