Important Update Regarding Magicka: Wizard Wars


It’s with regret that we have to announce that we will be closing down our servers for Magicka: Wizard Wars as of July 21st 2016.

When the decision came to halt development on the game we left the servers open so that our small but passionate player base could still continue to enjoy the game as it was, we hope that this has been a fun time for you all (the odd server gremlin aside)! Unfortunately though we have reached the point where we can’t economically justify to continue running the costly server infrastructure. To make things clear, these last 9 months haven’t been a money-making exercise for us (for the most part server costs weren’t covered) we simply wanted to let those of you who loved the game play for as long as was possible.


Wizard Wars was a project close to our hearts, and although the original Dev team are now working on other projects within the Paradox organization We still have fond memories!


How will the shutdown work?


  • Servers will remain open for a period of 3 months from today.

  • Shortly before this post all items/bundles with a real-money cost have been removed or converted to be purchased with in-game crowns only.

  • We will do our best to introduce any old content we have collecting dust in our archives, so you may see some new bits and pieces appearing (Not 100%, depends on work needed, we will try though!).

Should you have boosters active that expire AFTER 21st July 2016 please contact our support (www.paradoxplaza.com/support) and we can look into refunds where appropriate.

Finally a big thanks from all of us who’ve worked on the project, to you, the fans. The passion and feedback from you throughout the whole development of the game has been nothing short of awesome!

Magicka: Wizard Wars is a very unique skillshot based MOBA, where you play as a wizard that can conjure up spells based on 8 elements. This Free2Play game is definitely not pay2win, as each item you buy that gives you strength in one element equally makes you weak in another. The community is very friendly and there are often tournaments where everyone from novice to pro can take part in, and it is great learning tricks from players in these community events.

idk... I just wanted to say that the game is really amazing before it sadly shuts down its servers. A pity about the frequent server issues and lack of funding

After sinking 500hrs+ into this game and coming to a forced end, as servers are going to be shut down for good today and the game will be killed, I have to say that this was simply the best pure skill based not over-complex PvP game I've met on steam up until now and that counts even outside of steam for the past couple of years. Last time I was having adrenaline spikes in a game like M:WW was in (another fringe) game called Soldat and that's a looong time ago.

It's really a shame that owners of the game didn't pull through with it as I believe that that unique, profound yet not-easy-to-master-at-all system of spell fighting would have had a lot to offer to quite a broad audience. If only there was a bit more care on the side of promoting the game. Then again, I'm biased a lot...

Be it as it may, I will dearly miss this little gem of a game.

Жаль что из за нехватки внимания пропадают такие чудесные проекты, скоро сервера отключат, мы все будем скучать. Время проведённое тут было прекрасным.

It is a pity that due to the lack of attention, disappear such wonderful projects.
The servers will be closing down, and we will all miss you. Time spent here was wonderful.
(Sorry for my english)

This is one of the best games I've ever played. Ever wanted a magic game where you werent limited to just casting 3 basic spells? Well Wizard wars has you covered, having so many spell combinations your head will spin. If you have ever seen avatar and thought to yourself, that would be a cool game, its similar to that. I think that the developers went around it the wrong way though, wheras greddy devs like EA tend to make you pay for a game and also include microtransactions that change the balance of gameplay, Paradox have made this insane gem F2P with just cosmetic microtransactions! for every perk on a robe that costs $10, there are equel disadvantages. I think this game should have been priced around $20 so that the devs had more money to help improve with the really basic stuff that makes the game unplayable, namely, a server list to choose from, serious crash and login problems and more advertising for a larger playerbase, because at the moment, barely anyone plays...
