Hi HEXers. It’s the final weekend before Primal Dawn! We launched on Steam this past Tuesday to great success. Yes, there have been some server stability problems with the influx of new players, but we’re making progress on that issue and have both short-term and long-term fixes in the works. We patched just today address the log-in problems and we look good for Saturday and Sunday, which just happens to be VIP weekend. Then Monday, and that’s Primal Dawn eve! We’ll be taking the servers down sometime Monday night (PDT) to bring you the fourth HEX PVP set! We’ll have lots more to talk about on Tuesday, so expect a lot of communication from us then.
It’s VIP weekend! The format is Constructed, so get your wins in with your Armies of Myth metagame deck before Primal Dawn changes everything! Take a look at the tournament times below and get those AAs!
Start times listed in PDT below:
Friday: 10:00 AM, 7:00 PM
Saturday: 3:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 6:00 PM
Sunday: 9:00 AM
If you are not yet a HEX VIP and don’t want to miss out on these tournaments, you should definitely become one. Head to the in-game store and choose 1 month, 3 months, or 12 months. With your purchase, you get a pack per week of the current set plus tickets to allow entry into these events (tournament entry fees still apply). Players who sign up for the full year also get the exclusive Cerulean Mirror Knight Alternate Art sleeve! See the VIP FAQ for more information.
Starting an hour before the servers open, some of our most popular HEX Twitch streamers will be playing Primal Dawn for two days straight! Well, not all of them at the same time. It’s pretty hard to play a trading card game on no sleep. Starting with a Cory interview, streamers will be showing you their favorite cards and dropping strategies on both Constructed and Limited play. Get a head-start on the new cards and all the hot analysis starting Tuesday morning (PDT)! Stay tuned for a full schedule on Monday for streamers and programming.
Finally, if you’re attending PAX East this weekend, come visit us!
Come play HEX at the ROCCAT booth (#4224). You can meet Director of Game Theory Ben Stoll, Lead Designer of Primal Dawn Ryan Sutherland, and Producer-Plus-Future-Bear-Wrestler Kyle Heuer. We’ll have giveaways for HEX prizes and amazing ROCCAT gaming gear. See you there!
As a final spoiler before we release Primal Dawn, you’ll find all the new champions below. These champions will be available in Limited and Constructed, so start planning those new decks! (Click McBombus to see Bumblebot)
