Friday Update – The Flash

Jul 13, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have our Cosmic Crown Showdown, are announcing our upcoming Flashback schedule, and more:

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Our qualifying top players from the season will be fighting it out this weekend for guts and glory. Good luck to all our contestants! If you’d like to follow the action at home, join Hacky and Snake as they cast the CCS on the official channel. The action starts Saturday the 14th at 9am PT (See local time), so be sure to tune in for a fantastic show.

Merry Melee Rotation

Merry Melee Dingleton returns for all you deck brewers out there! Remember, with Dingleton, we’re letting you build the deck you bring to the fight… albeit Dingler-style. Which is to day, in this mode you’ll build your best deck out of any Immortal cards from HEX’s history, but you may only use one copy of each. Furthermore, your deck has to be 100 cards instead of the normal 60 card minimum. Note: You can still run more than 1 copy of any Standard Shard (Blood Shard, Diamond Shard, etc.).

Merry Melee Dingleton

Format: Constructed; Singleton; 100 Card Minimum
Cost: 100 Platinum
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

As always, winning ten games of this week’s format (your record from previous Dingleton events carries over) will earn you the toe-tappingly tantalizing Dingledance sleeve:

Dingleton is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 7/20 at 10am PT). So, pick your partner and get ready to do-si do your best in this wacky one off.

Flashback Fun

Finally, we’ve been reading the forums and know many of you are looking for some fresh new ways to play draft. As such, we’ve put together a few flashback events for you to enjoy.

Running from 7/20 at 10am Pacific until 8/3 at 10am Pacific, our 5-6-6 format will return! Then, from 8/3 to 8/17, we will have 7-8-8 join the party. Please note that these will be full flashback drafts, meaning that you will only be able to use gems and champions which were legal during those sets, and that you will need to use corresponding packs when entering. Furthermore, outstanding draft runs will be closed out as these events begin. Any outstanding drafts will pay out to players according to their existing win-loss record as a new event begins.

They say that what’s old is new again. So, whether you are a veteran looking for some nostalgia or a newcomer trying these formats out for the first time, we hope you enjoy our flashback events while they’re up!

See you in the Battlegrounds,

The HEX Team
