Friday Update – At A Glance

Jun 29, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have our upcoming ladder rotation, Cosmic Crown Showdown, and more:

Greetings, Hexers! The end of our 3rd Ladder season of 2018 is on the horizon. At midnight Pacific time on June 30th, our top 64 players from both the Constructed and Limited ladders will be locked in for their shot at taking top prize in our Cosmic Crown Showdown! If you haven’t already secured your spot, start climbing now. Your place in the stars is just a few games away.

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Our Showdown this season will take place on July 14th and 15th at 9am Pacific. Be sure to save the date for your chance at prizes, glory, and the exclusive Cosmic Crown Showdown sleeve!

As a reminder, a few months ago we let everyone know that our cash tournaments would be transitioning to Platinum payouts for the time being. All other aspects of the Cosmic Crown Showdown will remain the same, but the prizes will be as follows:

Prizes:

  • 1st Place: 200,000 Platinum and the Cosmic Crown Showdown Animated Sleeve
  • 2nd Place: 100,000 Platinum
  • 3rd-4th Place: 50,000 Platinum
  • 5th-8th Place: 25,000 Platinum
  • 9th-16th Place: 25 boosters from the current set
  • 17th-32nd Place: 10 boosters from the current set
  • 33rd-128th Place: 5 boosters from the current set

But, whether you are aiming to be a star or just like playing some sweet games of HEX, ladder rotation is coming. On July 1st climb time returns, and with it comes all new sleeves and alternate arts for you all to enjoy:

So turn your gaze towards these sweet morsels and get your graspers ready. Our latest ladder is only a few days away.

Merry Melee Rotation

Who’s the Boss returns this Friday! Keep your cool with one of 40 different champions from the Frost Ring Arena.

If you ever wanted to harness the true power of the Archon of Nulzann or, my personal favorite, the Artisanal Cheesesmythe, now is your chance. Like with Corinth’s Iconoclash, you don’t need to provide a deck for this mode. Instead, when you jump in, we’ll give you and your opponent one of the Elite decks at random.

Merry Melee Who’s the Boss

Format: FRA Elite Champions
Cost: 100 Platinum
Length: Gauntlet (5 wins / 3 losses)
Match: Best of one
Prizes:

  • 3 Wins – Random Standard Rare
  • 4 Wins – Current Set Booster Pack
  • 5 Wins – Current Set Booster Pack and Random Standard Rare

If you’re up for the challenge and can pull off ten wins over the next week (your record is saved from the last time this mode was live), you’ll be rewarded with this amazing sleeve:

Who’s the Boss is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 7/06 at 10am PT), so don’t freeze up! Jump right in to this hot new mode.
