Friday Update – Bundles of Joy

Mar 9, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have Doombringer release info, new Clash and Bash cosmetics, and more:

Doombringer

Doom is almost upon us! That’s right, while we are not quite ready to share a specific day, we can announce that Doombringer will be launching sometime next week! That means that we will be having our release celebration next weekend, and it is only a matter of days before you will have everything this new set has to offer! What does that mean? Well, this is a big one…

Doombringer Recap

Our Doombringer update will introduce our first prismatic set, including five new keywords, the exciting Fuse mechanic, and dynamically generated draft packs for a continually fresh limited experience! This update comes with twenty new champions, fifteen new gems, and a Frost Ring Arena update with balance changes, all new opponents, and sparkly new loot to collect. It brings all new art from our incredibly talented artists and cards designed to tell the story of our Frost Ring Arena teams and the beginnings of the Enders’ invasion.

Speaking of stories, Doombringer began as a whisper that something wicked had arrived in the Hyperborean Mountains. We saw the arrival of the Enders and the brutal fate of the Luminaries. We saw the machinations of the Cult as they took advantage of the chaos, and we saw Locke’s inventions in light of his friend’s death. We even got a glimpse of the fate of our other contestants at the Arena.

Today, we see how Brosi-Buk learns of Puck’s death. It’s pretty epic and it involves squirrels, so be sure to take a look!

Draft Sleeve Rewards Leaving with Doombringer

With Doombringer so close, we would like to remind everyone that the sleeve rewards for draft will be leaving when we launch our new set. This means that you have only a few days to secure these sweet animated sleeves before they are gone for good. These sleeves will never be returning, so if you don’t have your copies be sure to hop into those queues!

    
    
    

You unlock a sleeve for every three match wins you earn (3rd/6th/9th/12th/15th and 18th matches won). At these milestones, players will randomly receive one of these six, beautifully animated sleeves. Grab them before they go away for good!

Cosmic Crown Showdown

The Cosmic Crown Showdown for Season #1 of 2018 will take place this weekend! Our top 64 players from each ladder will be competing for their share of $5,000. These are some of the best players from the season, so it is sure to be a fierce battle. Tune in at 9am Pacific on the official Twitch channel for quality coverage of the event. Hacky and Snake will be casting every amazing play, so be sure to stop by!

It’s Your Card

Community designs have been whittled down to the final four! You each have just one vote, so be sure to make it count. The winner from this round will be the community design we move forward with, so vote now and make your voice heard. Don’t forget that the team will be discussing the card as you guys design it on our weekly dev streams (which run from 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM Pacific Time on Wednesdays). Come join the fun!

Clash and Bash Rotation

We are thrilled to announce that our Bash and Clash cosmetics will be rotating shortly. Available for the first time on the weekend of the 31st, these new rewards will be up for grabs in our weekly cash tournaments:

    

Runebind AAA will be the sleeve and card reward for the Clash, while Sunlit Sentence AAA will be the sleeve and card reward for the Bash. Both tournaments will share the enchanting Dream Forest Battleboard as a prize for placing in the top 8.

HEX BashHEX Clash

The HEX Bash and HEX Clash are back once more! Saturday and Sunday, starting at 8am PT (Timezone Conversion), you have another chance to prove your mettle and walk away with cash and exclusive prizes! Will you end up a proud owner of these fine cosmetics like last week’s Bash or Clash winners?

    
 

Join us this weekend and find out! And remember, with new rewards incoming, this means that you only have a few more weeks to grab these exclusive prizes. Be sure to make them count!

For full details on prizing, please check out our tournament pages here and here.

Bundles of Joy

Finally, we have a jolly Doombringer spoiler from the Caravan to share with you today:

Jenson the Joymaker

Jenson is a master at putting on a great show. Let him go unchallenged for too long and you will certainly close the curtains on your victory.

But like any great puppet master, Jenson’s always pulling the strings. Take him out and his Moppet menagerie of fun will collapse. It will be a delicate balance of protection and triggering his Rowdy power for those who believe the show must go on.

Speaking of, we will continue to have Doombringer spoilers here, Twitter, Facebook, and within the community as we gear up towards release. Stick around, and we’ll you in the Battlegrounds~
