Hello everyone! We have some exciting changes to our current Immortal tournament offerings.
With another rotation on its way, we are as committed as ever to bringing you an engaging Immortal scene. We have been working together closely with our friends at HEX Primal to improve the HEX Primal Immortal Championship series (ICS), and to that end we have made some changes to the Immortal Championship’s schedule, qualification methods, and prizing. We will cover the biggest changes here, but for full details please be sure to check out HEX Primal’s Immortal tournament page.
The HEX Primal ICS championship is moving from Saturdays to Sundays. This means that the upcoming tournament, originally scheduled for Oct 21st at 9am Pacific, will be held on Oct 22nd instead. As part of this transition, the October ICS will have no ticket entry. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at Immortal, now is your chance! Subsequent tournaments will use the new qualification system outlined below. These ICS championships will continue to occur at regularly scheduled 2 month intervals. Details on those tournaments will be posted on the in-game calendar, the forum calendar, and HEX Primal’s Immortal tournament page.
In addition to the rewards already offered by HEX Primal, we are adding a number of Alternate Art prizes to the ICS. Some of these AAs will be earned in the ICS championship itself. Others will be earned by participating in our new qualification method. The first cosmetic prize, an AA Rune Ear Hierophant, will be awarded for the first time in the October 22nd tournament.
Remember, this upcoming tournament has no ticket requirement, so you should definitely hop on over and take your chances! Here is the prize breakdown for the new ICS Championship:
Door Prize for non-top 64 competitors:
Moving forward, we are also making it easier and more enjoyable to qualify for future ICS events. First, we are lowering ticket requirements from 20 to 10. Second, starting October 23rd, we will be offering an Immortal Weekly tournament which you can play in to win packs, tickets, and exclusive cosmetic prizes!
The HEX Primal Immortal Weekly will be 3 rounds of Immortal Constructed in the swiss format. It will cost 300 Platinum to enter, but it will award a rotating selection of meta-relevant AA cards. For our first rotation, we are offering AA Chlorophyllia and AA Thunderfield Seer:
The full prize breakdown is as follows:
These special tournaments will be held at 11am PT and 6pm PT on a rotating day of the week, two days removed from the Arcanum Vault. Thus, in October the Immortal Weekly will be held on Monday. In November, they will be held on Tuesday, etc.
We hope you enjoy these changes to the ICS, and we can’t wait to see more fun Immortal brews. Be sure to let us know what you think of these changes in the forums below!
