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!

STOCKHOLM — Dec. 15, 2015 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games for chill people, today released “Ice, Death, and Fury” for Magicka 2, a new DLC set which adds all new ways to play with your combustible companions. The DLC, which contains ice, death, and fury in a broad variety of styles and combinations, is available today for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs, and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system.

Magicka 2, the critically exclaimed game that lets you spell “success” using electrified healing steam, can be played in brand-new game modes using the new DLC, and also challenges players to new boss fights and new questionable fashion advice with a new set of robes and weapons.

Magicka 2 brings players a vampire-free co-op action experience, featuring a creative spellcasting system where eight elements can be combined to generate a massive variety of destructive and occasionally productive effects. In the new “Ice, Death, and Fury” DLC set, new challenges and gameplay features have been added to the game, including:

Meet the New Bosses: Do battle with all-new standalone boss encounters, such as Insane Maxi, Mr. Carrot, and The Great Porkolino!!

Be On your Midgard: Use your cunning, creativity, and human-shield friends to survive new scenarios such as “Protect the King,” “Troll Cave,” “Darkness,” and “Old Wizards”

The Robe Warriors: Wear some sweet new wizard robes and weapons, including the “Death Apprentice Robe,” the “Crow Staff,” the “Robe of Riviera,” and a pearl-handled revolver, “Ol’ Trusty Rusty”

Wizard Wars have the best PvP system i've ever seen in any online game before. There are no balance issues. Everything is purely skills. A game couldn't be more fair. And it's free to play completely!
For a game like this, i would be willing to pay monthly.

*For the game review scroll a little lower.*

I will say this because my friend didn't.

This game is a lot of fun, to a lot of people.
A little while back the devs stopped the development proccess as "they couldn't see it going anywhere". Now that's fine, they said they'll keep the servers going and whatnot.

Few months later, they suddenly decide to shut everything down (and trust me a game on this scale doesn't need much server power).

My friend is one of the top players of this game. Everytime he and the others planned a tornument on the forums, the servers magically went down... so they decided to ask for better servers/matchmaking.... thread gets locked and a dev says "we'll look into it".
A few days later: "We're shutting this game down."

Again, these are the same guys that misadvertised magicka 2 (which is a horrible game in comparison to the 1st or WW).
So keep "Paradicks" on your don't support list, because they are a greedy and lying bunch.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Game review: (I recommend the game)

It's a fun competetive game with lots of things you need to remember,
It has a huge mechanic system (everything can be countered by something, certain enemies are weaker against certain things and so on and so forth.

If you have patience and invest time in it, it's a very well made game.

Right now, i wouldnt recommend this game but don't get me wrong this game is amazing.
It combines the magicka spell system with moba gameplay which makes it almost totally skill based.
Sure there are items in the game but it barely boosts your stats so you need skill, strategy and teamwork to win.
But the problem is, they stopped development for this game last year and Paradox has completely forgotten this gameafter moving on to Magicka 2. A lot of players dropped this game, including me, after the massive decrease in players.
It would take around 10-25 minutes to solo queue for a match, and a lot of people would rather use that time to play some other game. However, its still a fun and free moba and best of all its not p2w

I have no idea what I'm doing, and you probably won't either. But this game is amazing, and every living being should be playing this. There are tons of different spell combinations, even more than Invoker from Dota 2. You can build walls and barriers to protect from spells and projectiles, counter an enemy's element or reduce the damage taken from it by casting wards on yourself; the possibilities are endless!

Like, seriously. Get it. Now.

A fun game where basically everyone is Invoker from Dota. Incredibly skill based, fast, and fun. Cool that its free to play too, as the other Magicka games were buy to play.
