Welcome to a round up of the week. We have our VIP weekend, “It’s Your Card” polls, and more:
If you haven’t heard, our R&D team has been actively designing a card with the community. First, you guys decided the card type (Troop). Then, you decided the shards (Prismatic). This time, you get 3 polls all at once to determine just what kind of crazy shard combos this sweet card will have! If you haven’t voted already, you should do so now and take part. Don’t forget that the team will be discussing the card as you guys design it on our weekly dev stream in between their regular wacky hi-jinks (which run from 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM Pacific Time on Wednesdays). Come join the fun!

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!
As a reminder, starting in February the Bash and Clash events will rotate between Saturday and Sunday instead of being fixed. This means that February 3rd will be a Clash and February 4th will be a Bash instead of the fixed schedule we have had until this date. The following weekend the events will be reversed (Bash on Saturday and Clash on Sunday), and they will continue alternating in this way. We hope this new schedule will give you all greater flexibility when it comes to attending these exciting events.
Please note that there will be no HEX Bash on February 10th while the Platinum Plunder is running. The HEX Clash on February 11th will run as normal.
Ever since we unveiled our upcoming Siege Mode, there has been a ton of great chatter in the community. It is great to see so many of you excited for this new way to play. Predictably, one of the most common items that gets sent our way is… tell us more! Information is the sharpest blade, and many of you are understandably excited to begin building up and tearing down defenses. While we laid out the bulk of the Siege system in our first update and the team has been hard at work at making this mode a reality, we do have another little nugget to share.
When we release Siege mode, we will also have some static defenses available for you to attack. These defenses will be crafted by different members of the HEX team to be low-hoard, permanent experiences that you can challenge to your heart’s content. Not only will this give us a chance to make some fun extra content for you, these static sieges will ensure there is always a low-stakes way for someone to jump into this new mode. We will share more as we get closer to release, but hopefully you enjoyed this little teaser. Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to let us know what kind of defenses you are most excited (and afraid) to challenge when this mode goes live!
See you in the Battlegrounds~
