As a way to bolster cash-shop sales (which so far has been stated to be mostly skins/textures), what would the peanut gallery think of an in-game Ashes of Creation Trading Card Game?

Yours truly greatly enjoyed parking a toon in a cantina in Star Wars: Galaxies, opening up their trading card game, and playing a few matches. It was a way to be seen in the world, while filling time or keeping busy. It also spawned both official and un-official tournaments, and even offered rewards to people who completed certain card-game challenges.

Everyone gets a starter-set, then you buy the additional packages, for chances at getting rarer cards (prob not an option for the Euro community), and you can trade cards to other players for in-game money or items.

Yay / Nay?

With parlor games available at taverns, we've mentioned before that some might be dice games, some might be card games, and some might have other elements available!

So with that in mind, an Ashes-related game could certainly be in the cards (hehe) - it being tied to anything Shop-related though might constitute what some would consider "P2W", so that might not be an avenue we'd want to go down :P

Parlor games
Parlor games are games that are played in player-built taverns or in-node taverns.[1]. Some will be dice games, others will be card games; and some will be less savory.[2]
