Friday Update – That’s Our Jam

Oct 19, 2018

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

Immortal Championship

First off, we’d like to remind everyone that the HEX Primal Immortal Championship is this Sunday. Be sure to get those tickets! You can visit hexprimal.com for the latest information regarding this event.

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Our current Ladder Season ends October 31st! 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:

Mama Yeti AAJouncing Carnage AA

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 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!
