Friday Update – Roidy, Set, Go!

Sep 27, 2019

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have HEX Mondays, New Immortal offerings, Merry Melee ROIDS, and more:

HEX Mondays

Those of you who have read Cory’s open letter know that on Monday evenings, between 4pm and 9pm Pacific, members of the team will be jumping on to enjoy games of HEX with the community. Let’s all jump on together and get those drafts firing and those queues buzzing! Be sure to let us know what you want to play in chat, and if you see these names in game, don’t forget to say hi:

  • HEXPrincessCory
  • HEXBen
  • HEXSquiddy
  • HEXMattHyra
  • DasEvil
  • Dinotropia
  • KingGabriel

Our good friend Snake will also be streaming around that time, so be sure to stop on by! He’ll also have a few Draft Codes to give away, so anyone can get in on the action. Check him out, and let’s all have some fun HEXing together.

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Cory also mentioned that we are bringing back Weekly Immortal tournaments! Starting in October, these tournaments will run on Mondays and Thursdays across a variety of times. You can check out our calendar for full details on timing, but we’ve also spiced up the rewards for these tournaments. Immortal Events will now reward Immortal packs! For example, these weekly Immortal tournaments award the following:

    You can also win older packs from our Immortal Gauntlet, so be sure to check these modes out starting in October!

    Cosmic Crown Showdown

    Speaking of tournaments, we want to take a moment and congratulate our latest Cosmic Crown Showdown winners. This was the first time we had a PS4 player take the crown, so congratulations! Your bragging rights grew three sizes this day.

    Merry Melee Rotation

    Are you ready to prove that you are not a robot? Ready to prove that yes, you are a “human” that does human things? Well, you are in luck! Our ROID format returns, so you now have another chance to prove your supremacy to all those other robots out there. Like many of our Merry Melees, you won’t have to provide a deck for ROID, but instead our Randomly-Optimized-Insta-Deck will be provided for both you and your opponent.

    In this format, you’ll be playing with decks of one or two random shards, but the contents of the decks are completely random from Standard cards. These decks can be kind of all over the place with a mono-blood Assault/Scorpinox/Blightbark/Uruunaz deck facing off against a Ruby-Sapphire Runic/Discard/Portal deck.

    ROID

    You never know what you’ll need to use to win next. To help you out, the ROID Bot has a powerful charge power to help keep your hand full of options (Pay 4 Charges to draw two cards), but it will all come down to who can optimize their plays the best!

    Merry Melee ROID

    Format: ROID Bot
    Cost: Free!
    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

      And remember, we have sweet sleeves for those of you able to best use your highly Optimized-Insta-Deck. Check it out below:

      ROID is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 10/4 at 10am PT). So, get ready to beep, boop, and bzzzt your way to victory!

      VIP Weekend
