Drakforge Uprising: Prelude to War Is available now!

Now is the calm before the storm as they say. All four factions are preparing for a war like they've never seen. They are now fortifying their armies by awakening ancient beasts that have been slumbering for decades, and using powerful magic they dare not use unless the situation is dire. This will be the war for control of Solis and everybody is ready to FIGHT!

Darkforge Uprising: Prelude to War includes eight all new cards. One Heroic and one Legendary for each faction. Also two brand new pre-constructed decks containing four of the new cards in each which are available for purchase here.

Also there is a brand new card pool for draft that promises to change the experience a lot.

You can see all the cards in the draft pool here.

Darkforge Uprising: Factions United Release!!

In the last set we saw the Darkforged unleashed upon Solis and how much chaos they could cause. The appearance of this new evil force shook alliances to their core and caused each faction to retreat from one another, unsure of who they could trust.

Loyalties will be tested! The time for teamwork with other factions has passed and in this new set we get a chance to see the power each faction can have on its own.

In this release each faction is getting one new Heroic and one new Legendary. Also each faction will be getting a week dedicated to them with a faction specific Legendary Chest as well as a mono faction pre-constructed deck containing the two new cards.

Here is the Schedule:
Thursday August 13th: Nekrium Release
Thursday August 20th: Alloyin Release
Thursday August 27th: Uttera Release
Thursday September 3rd: Tempys Release

SolForge is a F2P (don't stop reading, trust me) trading card game. It sets itself apart by being made by ex Magic and by having a unique take on things. As an example. You have some lanes and each card can take up one lane. Once that card is in the lane, you cannot move it (unless it has movement) until it is destroyed.

It is unique in that sense. The game revolves around a hand of 30 cards, cards come out each turn and stay for the duration of the turn. You have no mana costs so you can throw down any card in your current hand in any free lane (or no lane depending if it is a spell card (up to 2 cards per turn)). But each card does have a level. As you level up, so do your cards. And each level makes them stronger.

As said it is F2P, so you'll be expecting the costs of the game. Well there really isn't any. You can play and enjoy the game "as is". Each day you login, you get free silver and a free booster pack of cards. You can spend silver to get boosters or misc items. And if you really start to feel the vibe, you can lay down some actual money on gold. Which is not needed to enjoy the game. I have been playing for a few hours and I have to say, I log in each day, and claim 3 victories against the computer for my goodies and enjoy every minute of it.

Enjoy the game for what it is, a F2P game that wont rip your purse from you.

Solforge is way deeper than Hearthstone, way easier to play without spending any money, and more fun/rewarding imo.

Strongly recommend.



I'm going to compare Solforge to other card games I have played.

So first of all, I would like to start out saying that I was seriously into playing Magic the Gathering until Ravnica (the first one, not return) rotated out of standard and all the money I had invested in dual lands was worthless. I ended up just playing proxy decks with my friends, but no longer showed up to tournaments/etc. Magic the Gathering is just way too expensive to play, as the cards rotate out of standard too quickly. Extended/Modern is even more expensive to play if you don't already have the cards from when they were in the Standard rotation.

So then Hearthstone came out, and I started playing it. Had no cards so I was playing zoolock/hunter (when uth was broken). Nax came out and I didn't wana spend 20 dollars on it, so my decks stopped being competitive and I quit for about three months. GVG came out, bought packs with gold i had saved up. Still wasn't competitive. Decided to buy Nax for 20 bucks. Turns out Sludge Belcher/Loatheb win games. Also mad scientist pretty much needed in every hunter/most mage decks. Then Blackrock Mountain came out. I haven't bought that one because i don't think it brings anything to the table besides Thaurissan/Flamewaker/Quickshot. I have a pretty good set of legendaries and have fun playing the game, but that is only cos I sank a lot of time into it since it came out of beta. Everytime I try to get a friend to play it, they get turned away by the inability to acquire cards for free. The quests require you to win games, which is really hard with the starter cards, and you will only get a pack every 2-3 days assuming you do the quests. The arena, at 150 gold, is prohibitively expensive for new players, and since theyre inexperienced they usually go 0-3. You don't get to keep the cards either.

Now to solforge. I started playing this game a couple of days ago and I have to say it's great. A lot of the card abilities seem to be Magic abilities with a name change, but that's fine. What is great is the ability to be able to play it for free. Completely for free. You get a pack just for logging on every day. You get another pack after three wins every, which can be against the computer. Free packs for no reason.

But card packs aren't what make this game, it's the drafts. To get into a draft you need 3 event tickets. You get an event ticket for your first online win of the day, every day. That means you have to beat a guy, but you will probably get wrecked if you're a new player with no cards who hasn't mastered the game yet. What I recommend is you make a second account, and every day you make the accounts play each other and get an event ticket on each. That way you can draft 2 out of every 3 days (one day on one account, the next on the other).

The drafts are like in Magic. You open a pack, pick a card, then the computer passes you their pack, which is now missing a card. Maybe I'm biased because of my Magic experience, but I much prefer this to Hearthstone's "pick one out of 3 cards" method. Anyway, you get to keep all the cards that you draft, so it's really easy to build your collection.

The first few drafts I played were stomps. I went 0-4 multiple times, but it is nowhere nearly as frustrating as the first few arena fails in Hearthstone because you keep the cards. You also get 3 card packs for going 0-4. The game is extremely friendly towards new players.

Assuming draft is not for you and you want to play constructed, you can just go to and sign up for the unheroic ladder. This means that you play against other people using only commons or rares, no heroic or legendary cards. Commons or rares are very cheap to craft. I was able to craft an unheroic netdeck on my third day of playing just from the login rewards. Of course, I still got destroyed because I wasn't used to the game mechanics yet, but at least I knew that it was my fault and not the fault of my poor cards. Losing mirror matchups in unheroic ladder made me realize ways in which I could improve my play, which ended up boosting my draft win rate.

Solforge is truly a free to play game. Way more accessible than Magic/Hearthstone
-Paper card games like Magic are definitely pay to win and prohibitively expensive.
-Hearthstone isn't really free to play due to the single player adventures, which require you to shell out cash. You can be competitive if you grind Hearthstone without spending money, but you would have to be some sort of arena wizard or grind quests for months.

-the client is ugly. super ugly. Hearthstone is extremely beautiful in comparison.
-Some mechanics are ripoffs from Magic
-The unheroic ladder has long queue times unless its nighttime in the US
-There are like five people total who play this game (draft queue times are almost instantaneous though)

Still, greatly recommended over Hearthstone. Really don't understand why this game is so shunned.

This is a great card game. I use to play hearthstone and enjoyed it for some time but I actually like this one more. For one its not well known so there isn't a million sites with deck builds all over them for it. So you don't run into a bunch of net decker's. 99% of the time people are using decks they thought up themselves. Cards are pretty easy to get. Everyday you get two packs from dailies that often net you a few commons and some rares and an occasional heroic. But if you really want heroics and legendary cards you have to play draft games which only cost 3 tickets and you get 1 ticket a day. So you can do drafts every three days if you want. You on average get about 2 or 3 heroics a draft and 1 legendary maybe every 8 drafts. There are tons of other ways to get cards to for people just starting the game. Just play all the single player challenges and they give you cards too.

My only real gripes are that you can't talk to anyone. There is no way to chat and really no easy way to add a friend either... So that kind of sucks. But other than that it's a good game.

Having given this game a good couple of hours (spread over a few months, which makes it seem rather sparse), I feel confident in recommending it to others if only for the novel appeal.

In short, drop cards like they're hot!

The "Leveling" system for the cards puts a different spin on play-style, as well as the zero cost for playing them. The only cost you pay is the regret of having to discard the cards you didn't use but ended up needing. But that's all circumstantial and a bit easier to mitigate once you've a better grasp on the cards and mechanisms.

That said, some cards might put you off at first. "Big whoop," you might say, unless it's within the first 'round' or two of hands and you realize, "Holy balls, the level-ups are incredible!" So yeah, drop those cards. Even if your ranks are full and the spells you have aren't necessary, it still pays to play *something* if only for the sake of getting a stronger version of it later, and you're on hand 3 of 4 in the round. And again, no 'mana' cost.

It has a "snowball effect" appeal to it, I guess. Which can be refreshing. While I appreciate the cautious, long-haul strategy of Magic and similar card games a bit better, sometimes I like something with a faster pace and exponential growth - though I seldom see my level 3 cards.

This is all online play notwithstanding. I base an assumption of "Legendary Stomping" on other reviews, and have had enough experience with Hearthstone to be frustrated by feeling incapable of beating anyone. Fact of the matter is, I'm a heavy gamer, but spread my attention across many games. I simply don't invest enough time in these F2P games to build a strong collection and be competetive. And that'd be a lame excuse to pay real life money, so I won't. If I get tired of playing against CPU and draft tournaments feel too noncommital after awhile, I'll just stop playing again.

But again, fun game/concept and worth at least a small chunk of your time to try.
