Friday Update – Twinkle Twinkle

Jul 20, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. Flashback Drafts start today, Merry Melee sleeve rotations start soon, and more:

Flashback Fun

Our first Flashback event is up! Come enjoy our 5-6-6 format, complete with classic gem and champion restrictions. Whether you are a veteran looking for some nostalgia or a newcomer trying these formats out for the first time, we hope you will enjoy some drafty fun.

And if that weren’t enough to get your blood pumping, playing in our Flashback events can win you this fantastic sleeve:

The Animated Eternal Invoker sleeve will go to any player who manages to go 3-0 in a single Draft or after they have won 10 Draft Matches, whichever comes first. So, what are you waiting for? Flashbacks will be live for a limited time, so be sure to get your games in now.

Merry Melee Changes

As you may have already seen in our latest patch notes, we have a few changes to our Merry Melee modes. Some, like extra health in Dingleton and the change to how Corinth generates cards we will mention in greater detail when these events come round again, but for now we wanted to mention that, starting today, we have all new cosmetic rewards! New animated sleeves are rolling in for each of our Merry Melee Modes, so be sure to check them out. Don’t worry if you haven’t gotten all of the old ones yet though, we will eventually make the old rewards available again at some point. Also, we slipped a whole new Merry Melee mode in there for you to enjoy, but you will have to wait for it to rotate in for full details.

Merry Melee Rotation

Speaking of rotation, Merry Melee Portal Kombat returns for those who wish to test their might. Relive the wild RNG filled days of Dead of Winter by playing as Galaxtar and mastering all the portals you can muster.

Galaxtar

In Portal Kombat, you’ll be provided with a deck of 25 standard shards and a bunch of portals. Don’t like your hand? Well, don’t worry! Next turn it will be completely different. Every turn your hand will be shifting and giving you new options on how to handle your opponent’s threats. And, if you happen to end up with a hand of useless portals, you can also use Galaxtar’s charge power to dig for more powerful options.
