I am also a card-and-dice guy, but the Online version will give me an option to play more when I am on the road, and an easier way to get friends interested.
As long as there are PDF's, there will always be a card option!
Yeah PDF's are fine if you can print them up which at this time I can not, in the end losing the option of buying new stuff in the official cardstock manner would be a bummer. So say Randy Savage signed with LOW and is the online only guy with no PDF, that would not be good business in my view...
#1 - So far, no one has said that LOW is going online only #2 - Randy Savage would never be an online only release. I imagine he would be released both ways to get as much money as possible.
My question is, would it be possible to upload artwork to the online sim so that we were able to have the great artwork that we are used to on the LOW Online. I know some are really excited for photos but I am very partial to the artwork versions.
It also seems like these initial sets will not follow the original LOW sets. Is that going to continue or will the new LOW sets also be released at the same time as the new LOW Online sets?

I'm sure Tom is doing everything in his power to make everyone happy. Let's be honest though, some guys will never be online because their original contracts didn't include that option and they won't agree to it this time(Animal comes to mind.) That being said, some wrestlers might not want a cardstock version of themselves, because they don't feel it is a lucrative business venture. The idea of an online Legends game, might intrigue them more.
Truth of it all, we're lucky for whatever we get, be grateful. Let's not point fingers and cry about things that might or might not take place. Acceptance, understanding, and patience is required for this company continuing to grow. Enjoy it!

Having to boot a VM or use Bootstrap doesn't count.
Can I run it in Safari or Firefox?
I might consider this, given that it works on a Mac. But in my heart I'm still a pen-and-paper guy.
It sounds like we'll have to purchase card sets. Is that in addition to a subscription cost? And, in general, what ballpark are we talking about?
Are we going to get "double-charged" to have the online cards AND the cardstock? Or will we get a break on one or the other?
Well, if it's like COTGOnline, which I assume it will be, then yes. I'm a die-hard Mac guy and use both the Stat Tracker & GameTable (though, mostly just the stat tracker). THey both work in Safari & Firefox, though the GameTable works a little smoother in FireFox than Safari, but recent builds of Safari have been fine.
The only thing that never worked on Mac was the GameTable where you played against another person. But that's had so many troubles they've disabled it for everyone.
So, unless LOWOnline is going to be something COMPLETELY different, you should be fine.
THat being said, if the LOWOnline team needs Mac beta testers....you know how to reach me.
Plus we want to have something to release later this year!
Does that mean we'll be getting yet another LOW set this year? I figured we'd get LOTF 3 and that'd be it. But another LOW set would definitely have me interested...more-so than the online game. However that's mostly because my internet isn't fast enough to support the online game right now.
