Friday Update – Game On

Jan 5, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have promotions, a new Platinum Plunder, Kismet Draft, and more:

Game On

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a great holiday. Here at HEX we are refreshed and ready to hit the ground running, and what better way to start than with a “Best Digital Card Game” list. Our friends over at Game Informer placed us in their top picks for electronic card-slinging. We are humbled, but this is just the beginning! Here’s to many more good things coming in 2018.

APB Cross Promotion

We are running a promotion with our neighbors at APB Reloaded. Their offices are just down the way from ours in Orange County, and players from their game who make a new HEX account will get some special alternate arts which spell out “APB.”

Arena Regular AAPower and Pain AABattle of Destiny AA

What does this mean for you guys? Well first, it means that you should give our famous HEX welcome as you see new players trying out our game. Help them out when you can and show them why we have one of the best communities around. Second, we are also giving existing players a chance to nab these rewards as well. Simply log on before January 14th and you will receive these exciting alternate arts (two copies each) at the end of the promotion period. Enjoy!

Dead of Winter Collector’s Tier AA Poll

We are pleased to announce that the poll for the Dead of Winter Collector’s Tier Alternate Arts is now underway. We are letting you, our loyal backers, choose the cards you want to see added to the game. Please visit this link and follow the instructions to register your vote. This poll is limited to players with Collector’s Tier accounts and above. It will run for two weeks before closing, so don’t delay! Voice your preference today.

HEX Primal Immortal Championship

The last HEX Primal Immortal Championship concluded right before the holiday rush, so while it is a little belated we wanted to let you know that we haven’t forgotten the door prizes from that event. 8 lucky players from the 17th will still get a copy of the elusive Rune Ear Hierophant Alternate Art card. Let’s hop to it and announce those winners!

Congratulations everyone~

Kismet Draft

Kismet’s Drafts are returning! Starting 1/12 at 10am Pacific, this next Friday you will be able to battle it out with another hand-crafted draft mashup from R&D. More details will be released as we get closer to the event, but for those of you sitting on Kismet Packs, their contents will be changing Monday evening as we patch in preparation for the event. If you want to crack some packs with the old Kismet Pack tables, now is the time to do so.

R&D is putting the last loving touches on the new list as we speak. As soon as that is finalized, we will share it with you as well. Happy drafting!

Platinum Plunder

Arrr you ready for the Platinum Plunder? Ye better be, because it’s sailing back around the bend this February 10th and 11th. Channel your inner swashbuckler and pillage the platinum from our purses during this special event.

Remember, anyone can enter. The Platinum Plunder has no entry fee. All you need to do is show up on February 10th with your best constructed deck and prepare to send your opponents to the Kraken’s depths.

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!

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

Tournament Support

Please note: if you happen to have technical issues with the Clash or Bash events, our support team requests that you submit an output log from that same day along with your ticket. This is essential, not only to ensure your ticket gets resolved in a timely fashion, but also to help us prevent similar problems from occurring in the future. Output, error, and crash logs can be found in the HEX: Shards of Fate program install folder on your machine.

Article Archive

We have many fine authors who’ve created content for us over the years, and we are happy to say that it is now easier than ever before to find their content. We now have an article archive under the “Community” main menu item for our site. Click a series’ name and it will take you to the most up to date list of those articles. We hope you find this feature useful as you enjoy and share our authors’ hard work.

See you in the Battlegrounds~
