Friday Update – Fired Up

Oct 26, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. Merry Melee Corinth vs Corinth returns and more:

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Our current Ladder Season ends October 31st! That’s just a few short days away. For those of you aiming at a shot at the next CCS, it’s time to climb! Our capstone tournament will take place on November 17th and 18th, so save the date, start your brews, and secure your spot among the stars.

For everyone else, there will soon be adventurous new cosmetics to reward your climb. Let’s hop on over and take a look at what’s coming:

Danger, Love, and a group of friends—all part of a balanced ballad. Your story begins November 1st, so gird what needs girding and maybe do a few stretches so you’ll be ready when things warm up.  See you then!

Merry Melee Rotation

Are you ready to bring the pain with a deck that you build as you fight your opponent? Can you tighten the screws and outwit their pain-filled plays? Get ready for the original Merry Melee mode – Corinth vs Corinth returns!

In this mode you don’t select a deck and you don’t select a champion. Instead, you are given a predetermined deck of 20 resources (4 copies of each standard shard – [BLOOD] [WILD] [DIAMOND] [RUBY] [SAPPHIRE] ), and the champion Corinth the Iconoclast.

Corinth
Shifted Paradigm – Skip your draw phase. At the end of your turn, put your crypt and hand into your deck, then draw four cards.

You will then use her powers to create and choose cards—essentially building your deck on the fly. Only careful choices, a bit of luck, and quick thinking will grant victory over your opponents.

The Corinth vs Corinth mode will be available via an on-demand, gauntlet queue for the duration of this event. The gauntlet uses a best of one match system and will continue until you have 5 wins or 3 losses, whichever comes first. At the end of your gauntlet, players will receive a payout based on their record.
