Chaoblog (The Blog) for July 20, 2007:

 

Chaotic Questions and Answers

 

I just got back a bunch of answers from my contacts at 4Kids.  First some comments: (1) There are still a few questions that were not answered – they gave answers to 9 of the 18 questions.  Some they will be getting back to me, and for some, they may not want to release the information at this time.  Even though that is disappointing, I can understand their not wanting to put out too much information that either may change at a later time, or provide competition with any unneeded information.  Also there is not any super-amazing information here. Some good information that confirms some suspicions, but nothing earth shattering like the exact release date of the launch.

 

I want to thank my contacts at 4Kids for providing the below information.

 

For each of the questions, I have included the question I asked, their response and as an extra bonus, my own comments on their answer or speculation as to why they have not answered.

 

Question #1

Online, if you lose a battle, do you lose your cards?q

     i. If yes - Is this true for every battle? and

    ii. How will you “give” the cards to the winner?

4Kids

“No, a player will never loose their cards from battle.”

LED’s Comment

I do not know about you, but I think that it would be a cool option for the winner to “take all.” I would not say that this would be good for every battle have, but there are instances where it would be a cool option.  For instance, if you are at on of the top three levels and you are battling against another player with an ultra rare special edition super card, wouldn’t it be great to also win the code for that card, so that it is now part of your own deck?  This is something that you could arrange on your own either online or in person.  However, now that I think about it, they would not allow something on their portal because then it would be a form of gambling which just would not fly for a website targeted at 9 to 14 year olds.

 

Question #2

Is there anything that needs to be downloaded to your PC (or other device) before you can play online?

4Kids

“No, the game is built entirely in Flash and runs in any standard web browser.”

LED’s Comment

I had to ask this.  I could have sworn that Bryan Gannon said something about having to download something onto your systems before being able to play online.  I admit that I was wrong, there is nothing that is downloaded onto your systems in order for you to play.

 

Question #3 

What devices will the online play be available on in the September launch?

4Kids

            No Response

LED’s Comment

It is interesting that they did not answer this. In one of the videos commercials I saw, they touted being able to play the game on any device that has Internet access, including video games, phones, etc.  Either they do not want to jump the gun and announce all of the media types available right now, or perhaps some of these devices are not going to ready for the September launch – but they never did promise anything but the regular portal and the physical cards for this release anyway.

 

Question #4

On ChaoticGame.com, two of the codes for creatures (8UX3HBV7TRV4 [Rothar] and 27J8ZC49ZH26 [Khugar]) are no longer valid – why?

4Kids

“We are currently looking into why those two codes are not working.”

LED’s Comment

This was something that came up in the forum and I wanted to follow up on it with them. By their comment, it looks like all of these initial bio codes are supposed to work.  As of this writing, they are still invalid codes.

 

 Question #5

How often will the news “page” on ChaoticGame.com be updated?

4Kids

“The news page will be updated periodically – keep checking back!”

LED’s Comment

Because it is “news” we would expect it to be updated periodically, so this just confirms that it will be updated.  However, the frequency of the updates is still unknown.  This could just be a good marketing ploy on their part.  If they said that it will be updated once every two weeks, we will only come back once every two weeks.  However, by doing it this way, we may come back a few times between each update to make sure we do not miss anything.

 

Question #6

When will the commercial for Chaotic be released and in what markets/channels?

4Kids

            No Response

LED’s Comment

I am guessing that since they either just finished or are in the process of finishing up the commercial, that they are still unsure.  Maybe they have just not booked the time slots yet with the programming agencies? Don’t know.  My guess is that they might first preview the commercial at the San Diego Comic Con or waiting until mid-August to be within the one-month period before the launch of the game.

 

 Question #7

Would it be possible to get a list of the base cards that will be available in the starter deck?

4Kids

“We will be releasing the base cards that are available in the starter deck closer to, but prior to product release.”

LED’s Comment

I think they are missing a few words in their response and it should read “We will be releasing a list of the base cards that are available in the starter deck closer to, but prior to product release.”  Once this becomes available, myself, I am sure WEB4Kids (via Chaotic Spy), and a few other sources will be sure to let you know.

 

Question #8

When will the next round of Beta Testing begin – or has it already started? How many Beta testers are being (will be) used?

4Kids

“Beta testing has already begun. Go to ChaoticGame.com for future releases.”

LED’s Comment

I am not sure if I understand the answer.  Are they stating that the next round of Beta Testing has begun or that Beta Testing in general has begun (which we already know and was the reason for pushing back the launch).  I am going to follow up and see if they could clarify their answer.  They also did not answer the question about the number of Beta testers.

 

Question #9

Will ChaoticUSA.com become active at the same time of the launch?

4Kids

            No Response

LED’s Comment

            They probably did not understand my question.

 

Question #10

If everything goes according to plan with the “late September” release – when will:

a.       The mass marketing launch occur

b.      The booster packs be released to both markets?

a.       Will there also be a lag between hobby & mass retailers for the boosters?

c.       The second series of the cards be released?

d.      The international launch occur (outside of the US & Canada)

e.       Because I have to ask – is there any specific date for the September release?

4Kids

            No Response

LED’s Comment

Sometimes you have to ask questions to get answers. Sometimes you ask questions not expecting an answer.  I asked some very specific questions about timing and they did not get answered.  These were questions that I did not expect to get any answers, but I had to try.  After two No-Gos on the previous launches, they are being very cautious when it comes to giving out any dates.  This is very understandable, but I wish I could have provided the answers to you, but maybe next time.  I’ll keep on trying.

 

Question #11

When will the next season of the TV show begin?  How many episodes will be airing next season?

4Kids

“The next season of the Chaotic TV Show will be debuting in September on 4Kids TV every Saturday morning.”

LED’s Comment

A confirmation that the second season was picked up for the September lineup, but many of us already knew that.  Not much new info here.

 

Question #12

Will there be any codes/hints provided between now and the launch since the TV show is in repeats?

4Kids

            No Response

LED’s Comment

Hmmm . . . interesting that they did not answer this.  If they said “No,” we would not pay attention to any commercial, video clips, etc. that they showed us.  If they said “Yes” we would get too excited, but potentially upset if they did not have many new codes to give us.  By not responding right now, what are they saying?

 

Question #13

Is Chaotic going to appear on any video game systems? (a) Which systems? and (b) When?

4Kids

            No Response

LEDs Comment

There are two explanations (I think) for not responding.  First may be that they are unsure of all the systems that it will appear and may be under negotiations with a few companies, or secondly, they may already have licenses with the makers of some video systems and may be under contract to not announce it to the public.

 

Question #14

Will the video game systems just be another outlet to the Online Portal – or will they be separate games based on the Chaotic brand?

4Kids

            No Response

LED’s Comment

            See comment to questions #3 and #13.

 

Question #15

Will the Chaotic crew be appearing anywhere else besides the San Diego Comic Con and the hobby show in Indy?

4Kids

“The Chaotic Demo Team will be on hand at San Diego Comic Con, GenCon Indy, and FanExpo in Toronto, Canada.”

LED’s Comment

Cool, something new, and of interest to the Canadian fans – an appearance eat FanExpo in Toronto. [FYI, this is going to be Aug. 24-26, for more info, see http://www.hobbystar.com/ComicConToronto2007/CC_Main.asp - Also note, the 4Day pass for the SD ComicCon is already sold out and the passes for Saturday are almost gone see http://www.comic-con.org/]

 

Question #16 

Will the abilities for each of the characters always be in denominations of 5?

4Kids

            No Response

LED’s Comment

I think this came up on the boards at the time I was writing this question. I know that on the game board, the attribute level indicator is in 5’s, the abilities on the card is in 5s, but I was just wondering, especially in the online portal, if they could have other numbers.  I was just curious.

 

Question #17

What were the reasons against not releasing the cards ahead of the Online Portal?

4Kids

“I am also getting you the answer to #17”

LED’s Comment

            An answer should be coming soon, so hold on to your hats.  This was on of the questions I did not expect to be answered, but later is better than not at all.

 

Question #18

How soon after the initial launch will tournaments begin?

4Kids

“In store tournaments are planned to occur soon after the initial launch. Online tournaments will commence coinciding with the initial launch of cards. More details to be released in the coming weeks.”

LED’s Comment

Well, not much to comment on here, but get ready to start battling in tournament style almost as soon as the game launches.  Can’t wait . . . .

 

Battle on,

 

LED

The Lord of Perim
