With Armies of Myth launching on July 14th, that means the Release Celebration is coming and we’re making it even better! Let’s start with what’s the same– there are two alternate art prize cards. This set’s promo cards are Brightmoon Brave and Duplicitous Duke.

https://www.hextcg.com/hex-update-armies-release-celebration/

Phenteo Update: Had to edit the announcement as there was a couple errors. We do apologize for the inconvenience. The following items were changed:

1. In gauntlet you need to win 5 times in order to get the prize (not 4 as previously stated). You must also complete the gauntlet during the event time-frame.

2. Constructed tournaments also have the prizes.

3. The 2-man tournament queue will not have the prizes.

Wow, I love those AA cards. I just wish I didn't suck so bad at drafting so I'd have a chance at getting the AA duke.

Gauntlet!

Plus, Brightmoon Brave is a participation prize. You get it just for playing in those events. =D

Stealth Vampire Princess nerf with 0 cost Kisses. Nothing huge though.

And damn you collectors! You and your never ending value train! :P

EDIT: Ignoreeee me. It's not really a nerf, just a reformatting. It affects ALL kisses in your hand. Thought it was just one. Only way it's a nerf is if your Kisses get countermagic'd.

So much AA! :cool:
I'm in luck that the Brightmoon Brave is my favorite, as that's the one I'll be getting 4 of.

Classy charity support, Hex. :)

I'll certainly make use of that 50% extra arena gold, although not going too crazy as waiting for stardust to be added to the loot table - although 50% extra gold is likely equivalent to 4 common or 1 common/1 uncommon, which might well be a decent stardust drop rate...

Well being a collector I still have to buy 2 of both AAs because I want to have 4 of everything.
Having the collector perk without being a collector must be great ;)

On other news: Amazing update, thank you very much HXE, so much looking forward to the coming weeks.
I'm closer than ever to not needing any other game ever again :)

Good idea. I think I have a slightly better chance of winning 4 matches in gauntlet than I do of winning a draft. With the packs I'm getting from the kickstarter, I should be able to get about 3 sealed gauntlets for 200 gold.

It isn't 'winning' a draft this time though, just reaching finals. Top 2 get Dukes.

But there are a lot of options now - constructed, draft or sealed, and in construct, gauntlet or swiss... It's insane! (I am not sure exactly which queues will offer the AA's but I assume all of them should.)

How does the time limit apply for Gauntlet? Is it based on when you first enter the gauntlet? Or is it based on when you finish? Or both?

I am assuming that it will be mostly like the Set 2 Release Weekend. Based on the Newsfeed I'd say 8-Man Draft, 8-Man Sealed, 8-Man Sealed Gauntlet, and that's it. As well be sure to queue up for the ones that likely say release weekend (or something like that) otherwise they wouldn't have an AA reward.


What I'm curious and can't remember is Set 3 a new block? If so the Draft, and Sealed will be 3-3-3 right? Or will they only be set 3, set 3, set 3 for Draft/Sealed on release weekend like it was for Set 2 release with it being 2-2-2 instead of 2-2-1.

For the questions regarding the timing of the start and end of your gauntlet run for the AAs, I'll check on that this coming Monday. We're not in the office right now due to Independence Day in the US.

As for the format questions like 221 and 333, sometimes we take for granted that TCG players understand how limited formats work in regards to sets but people who primarily play video games may not be familiar with it. That seems like a great thing to cover next week.

Could we get a brief explanation for this change at some point, Phenteo? If this is going to be the case during the celebration, that seems to strongly favor the odds of grabbing the Duke AA's in Draft rather than Gauntlet. Since you only have to get into Finals for a tournament to win one, a player with a 4-2 record will qualify (via a pair of 2-1 wins in Rounds 1 & 2), whereas now a Gauntlet player must go 5-0 (instead of 4-1). The no margin for error seems a bit off in comparison, at least to me. Is there something I've overlooked?

katkillad
07-03-2015, 07:30 PM
With gauntlet, you need 5 wins so you could go 5-0, 5-1, 5-2 and get the prize unless I'm misunderstanding and actually seems more lenient than the standard limited format since any loss in the first two rounds of swiss/competitive means you are out of the running.

It's basically the exact same chance at 5 wins. 25% in Draft. 23% in Gauntlet. Making it 4 wins in Gauntlet makes it a much better way to farm them, and in much less time. It's fair at 5. :)

*facepalm* You're right, I did my math completely wrong. Gauntlet ends when you have three losses, not after five games. I was mistakenly thinking of it in Swiss structure, where it's three games regardless and your prizes are based on total wins.

Pardon my derp, everybody. As you were. :P

That was an error in posting. Engineering said it would take some considerable coding to change that. It may have been communicated improperly. Sorry!

So AA Duke is not possible from draft?

"Just like the Shattered Destiny event, booster draft, constructed, and sealed deck tournament participants will receive the alternate art common for participation. In Gauntlet sealed deck and Gauntlet constructed, players who accumulate at least 5 wins will receive a copy of the Duplicitous Duke; however, the gauntlet must be completed during the event period. The 2 man queue tournament is not eligible for prizes."

07-03-2015, 11:17 PM
I think the article could use another update. As it is worded now, you only get the Dukes from gauntlets, which I assume is an error.

Draft is my favorite format. I play Constructed and Sealed for VIP Tournaments, but I find the most fun from the game in the Draft environment. I want a play set of the AAs, so I'll play Sealed Gauntlet if I have to, but I REALLY hope this is an oversight. Tournaments should be the location for the top prizes not the Gauntlet. I'll be incredibly disappointed if Draft gets the shaft on the top end prizes again.

chromus
07-04-2015, 12:28 AM
I understand you re-adjusted Gauntlet win requirement to 5 in order to make it similar to a Draft Win (instead of Draft 1st and 2nd place). But as per the current version of the update, winning the Draft does not reward Duplicitious Duke AA either. Surely, this must be a mistake. :/

If draft was excluded I would be shocked.

Also, if the prizing structure is something that you want to change, can't you simply wait until the event is over and inject the Duke AA's into every account that placed 2nd? Or was it never intended to go to 2nd place as well?

(And man, what a way to kill any buzz I had, I thought I could actually play the release event relatively stress free, since getting 2nd is a whole lot less punishing that winning. RNG already hates me, giving it a reason to be sadistic is just cruel.)

Is it wrong for me to want it to be 1st place only? Only giving out 1 per 8 man queue is better for value of the card. And with Gauntlet is there an estimated # of cards that will distributed this way? Gauntlet has potential to distribute a ton of these cards.... 5-0 5-1 5-2 :( These will be worth a bunch less than the Filk Apes depending on how popular Gauntlets are during release weekend... Hope I am wrong but the gauntlet numbers are only thing that can prove me wrong

I made crazy bank on the filk apes winning every draft i joined except 1 but i don't like the top heavy prize structure and the limiting of the AA by doing that. Top 2 both getting one solves both problems and is overall just better for the community i very much approve.

Not that i don't like to make out like a bandit i just think its less healthy for the community and peoples happiness. Just look at the people in this thread going from aww another AA i will never have to, i can probably get those now. This is good for the community and i hope many people realize through their fight for top 2 that they absolutely can get to the finals and even win them.

That's the main difference between this game and the other i never saw anyone not thinking they could win a draft in the other one.

Everything in a TCG is a business opportunity. Sorry for those who don't think so but AA's are purely Business opportunities... if too many AA's exist than they are basically basic art and worth nothing... AA's are meant to be valuable

LNQ
07-04-2015, 06:03 AM
Every interaction you have in your life is a business opportunity. Doesn't mean you should take them as such, and most people have a balance where most things are thought as just part of life with no intent for profit, mostly because life is a social thing.

It might be a good idea to bring some of that balance to your approach to TCGs, too.

I mean in a draft i can go 2-1,2-1 0-2 and still get one and that is less wins.

Even the participation AAs are worth a booster+ and they'll be worth even more down the road.

It's basically the exact same chance at 5 wins. 25% in Draft. 23% in Gauntlet. Making it 4 wins in Gauntlet makes it a much better way to farm them, and in much less time. It's fair at 5. :)

I am very confused how this can be the case...perhaps I'm overlooking something, but the odds of being in the finals for draft to get the Duke AA is 25% due to it being 2/8. Now if I'm correct on how Gauntlet works you can only do 5 games during a gauntlet and are dropped if you get 3 losses. Therefore only 1/32 people will be able to get the Duke that way if everybody is queueing up against who they should be (due to the same records)...making Gauntlet much more difficult than Draft.


EDIT: Nevermind. I must of read an older post on Gauntlet. Apparently you keep playing until you achieve 5 wins OR 3 losses. Meaning at most there are up to 7 games being played...and thus making Gauntlet much more reasonable.

"Daily Sealed Tournaments: 4-0 and 3-1 will win the Duplicitous Duke AA"

31.25% (5/16) of Daily Sealed players will get an AA Duke.

Like a VIP Sealed weekend tournament, only every 4 hours. Interesting...

Looks like it's been changed to now winning a 8 person tourney instead of being in the finals for getting the Duke now?


8-person Queue: Top 1 is awarded Duplicitous Duke AA (Single-Elim Competitive Draft, and Swiss Draft)

That change happened prior to the weekend.


The update previously stated that the top two of 8 Man drafts would receive AA Duke. This is now missing, is this an error from the edit or has this option been removed? Thanks

That was an error in posting. Engineering said it would take some considerable coding to change that. It may have been communicated improperly. Sorry!


This newest article was meant to clarify questions that were building up over the weekend.
