Important Information

Dear Community

On The 13th of October we announced that Might & Magic Duel of Champions will no longer receive any additional updates. By doing so, we were able to offer you the game for a prolonged period of time, enabling you to play and enjoy it as long as possible. However, we have now decided to shut down the game for good.

Know that this was not an easy decision for us. We’ve shared your passion about Might & Magic Duel of Champions and enjoyed working together with a very dedicated community (that’s you!). Since the game has launched, we have put a lot of effort into Might & Magic Duel of Champions' development and you’re contribution and support have made it all worthwhile. Sure, we’ve been through some ups and downs, but those shared memories and emotions show how a common passion can bring developers and fans closer together in the end. Knowing that you have enjoyed our game is the reason why everyone at Ubisoft loves working in this industry. Thank you for this!

The shutdown of the game will not take place straight away, but on 31st of October, which is still a few months in the future. As long as Might & Magic Duel of Champions will be available, we want to enable you to play it and say goodbye. We also want to provide you with an opportunity to get in touch with your friends or clan members and make sure you can stay connected in the future. Before the game closes on 31st of October, we’ll perform the following preparations:

First, immediately following this announcement we will close the primary shop in which you could purchase virtual currencies and items for real money.
The in-game shop will remain accessible, however, allowing you to convert currencies and purchase content with what you already own or will still gain from the game. Please feel free to spend all your resources, currencies and items in the game now. Go crazy and have fun, try whatever you always wanted to do in the game and enjoy it while it lasts. As a parting gift, there will be a permanent shop discount starting right now. Once the game is closed on 31st of October, all remaining resources, items and currencies in the game will be gone.
In line with our terms of sale, we hereby inform you that there will be no refund of any virtual currency you have spent in the game or for any resources you still may own on shutdown date, nor any conversion of any remaining virtual currency to another game.

Once 31st of October is upon us, we will continue with our final steps. This includes closing the game, but also its website, its forum and its social media channels. They will not be accessible to you any longer. That said, you will still be able to reach here our customer support and community management teams, even after the game has closed.

If you are already looking for a new game to play, this might be of interest for you: Ubisoft celebrates its 30th anniversary with a special offer in the Ubisoft Club. For the rest of the year, each month you will get a classic Ubisoft game for free. All you’ll need is your Uplay account, so log in here and download away!

It was amazing and we would like to express our sincerest gratitude to you, our players! At the same time, we also thank all teams, departments, internal and external development studios for their ongoing support and participation, which enabled us to create and operate this game!

Your Might & Magic Duel of Champions' Team!

Duel of Champions was, quite some time ago, the hands down best digital card trading game. After Ubisoft botching it further and further, it will now get taken down in a matter of weeks, which they announced just merely two weeks after they did a great "sale" selling seals (the premium currency) to the little remainder of the still active community. A blunder, which should be illegal, but sadly isn't

Don't think about even starting this, as it'll be gone soon forever.

I received a bunch of free backs from a 2015 Humble Bundle. I played through the tutorial missions, which were pretty good, and earned some more packs. I only played a few games versus actual people, but I enjoyed them, although spending a few minutes en queue was annoying (compared to ~20s in Hearthstone). Sadly, the game was on its way out, hurtling inexorably toward its permanent shutdown on October 31, 2016. While I'm glad that I didn't invest any money in cards that I won't be able to use anymore, I'm sad that this game is leaving, as I feel like it was incredibly well designed, offering a good combination of strategy and tactics. While it doesn't offer interaction during the opponent's turn, minion placement does offer a defensive option not available in Hearthstone (outside of usually under-stat'd taunt minions).

Game which I loved and enjoyed to play, now it's dead.
It was my first online card game which I enjoyed playing, I had fun and liked everything in this game.
But when this game started to be P2W, I quit because it was hard to win a duel.
I really hope that one day, I will be able to play this game again and ......have fun.

This game used to be good.

I remember when my friend and I were bummed out about not getting in Hearthstone when it was in beta, and he was recommended this game by a friend. He didn't get hooked because F2P format, but I fell in love with it, because I love card games in general. Yu-gi-oh, HS, Pokemon, ♥♥♥♥, I even played a baseball mmo card game tha I was raffled long ago but this game, he format of this game, the massive potential of the game, and idk, it never delivered. The concepts were never improved, aggro and stalling reigned supreme and it wasn't a f2p, it was you have to pay or prepare your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, and idk, the fun just stopped.

I don't review much games, but this game is honestly one of the games I wish I could recommend, but to be honest, the way this game was treated, i's not even worth checking it out.

8/10 in my heart 2/10 real rating

One of the best Digital Collectible Card Games out there... until Ubisoft let it fall into the dreaded hands of the endlessly incompetent Blue Byte. After almost a YEAR with absolutely no support (including ignoring GAME-BREAKING bugs that any COMPETENT developer would fix in DAYS at most), they finally release the long-overdue draft mode.... together with an announcement that they wouldn't be developing any more content for the game, so it's basically dead (oh, but of course they're leaving the servers up so suckers can still buy cards with real money, because THAT doesn't take any effort). Hey, Blue Byte? YOU NEVER DEVELOPED ANY CONTENT FOR THE GAME AT ALL! Oh and just to add insult to injury, this last patch broke the blasted game, introducing more game-breaking bugs and crashes than they managed to fix! The uselessness on display is simply JAW-DROPPING! They took the game and KILLED it because they simply didn't care. A heinous display of incompetence by an utterly worthless developer squandered a potentially fantastic game. Damn you to hell, Blue Byte. Damn you to hell.

If you are thinking to begin to play this game I suggest read what I wrote.
>>>Before the recent update (heart of nightmares)

<Short Game Review>
Card game evaluation from 1 to 5

Mechanics 4/5
It has a grid on the field that is quite distinctive it has melee lane and shooter lane, gives 3 main types of creatures (shooters, melee and flyers along with hybrids) other than creatures there are fortunes and spells each have the ability to change the flow of the game. There are factions that all heroes of might and magic fans should be familiar with. Each faction has distinctive characteristics. There are also differnet spell schools which do determine your limits and openents battlefield tactics for example if you know they have fire spells you can assume they have fireball so you would avoid have any creatures near eachother. Mana is produced constantly by +1 each turn. It has heroes what is expected from might and magic. Life points that each hero has differs which makes it more ineteresting as it represents the idea that everything has a cost and to master the game you need to master your ability of making your deck efficient, which limits you in way since all decks will have a weakness, so you have to decide whether you want to invest more in rushing to victory or playing a steady slow game. Another thing that was intresting is that you can redraw your cards at the beginning, with consiquence which is weird to me, but I am staying neutral with it. I gave it a four because I feel like they could of added another lane, made it at least 5x5 instead of 4x4, so then it would five enough space to make it more strategic. What I mean by that there would be a middle row on both sides which would be harder to dominate since the center would be the most dangerious spot on the field. By making a small difference such as that it would increase the variaty of formations possible, not sticking to them would bring additional dangers to the player.

Flow/Economics 4.25/5
I was really happy with this game. Economics of it was most appreciated, since there was a daily reward that grows for 7 days and then is collected on the 7th day along with being awarded 10000 gold and 100 seals per level. There were also some achievements that rewarded in seals. Prices seemed reasonable to me except the fact that five towers set packs were not available for gold, which didn't make sense to me. If you look pass that then everything else is accessible each level as you go on (except the fice towers they are only accesible later when you have enough seals) cards in the game at a reasonable pace. I liked the fact that they have a sacrafice pit to recycle cards in a way but you need a lot to do that. Another thing that it makes it flow more is that there are such things as wild cards which you can use for getting specific cards in the altar of wishes, but first you hace to unlock them though by buying packs. It's a 4.25 because I think each set of cards should be accessible with gold and only the boxes should be priced with seals as they are now. Only when the set is really new it should be priced with seals for a month and then it should change to the ordinary price as the other packs.

Aestetics 4.25/5
It's organized each faction has it's own field look, quality pictures on the cards, nice log in menu background. There are also alternate art for some cards. The flying creatures move up and down, there is some other animation. I cannot give it a five though, because that would mean there is no room for improovements to be made. The aim of each card game should be to become more lively and more animated, so there would be movement and with it comes character of each creature. Everyone wants to see their creatures come to life and all spells become animated. I think even basic animations would be a start like one for each type of spell I guess. When thinking about makes you think about the ability to change the whole field and that change gives certain effects.

Story 1/5
I think there is something written on those 13 quests. I think it needs some story each hero at least to add more depth to the game. More quests some short animations or at least pcitures with writing on it or descriptions on cards.

Total: 14/20 I would recomment this game to all people that like card games and strategy.
<<<After the update

Mechanics 4/5
Nothing changed that would have a huge impact.

Flow/Economics 1/5
There seems to be no more daily rewards just some daily quests and no award for leveling, it almost seems that they don't want to reward their players really for playing the game. All prices changed to seals which disguisted me. I think it is also not fair as other people that are further ahead get the advantage as they had the ability to earn more seals. If you start just now you will never go ahead of other people. I was really disappointed by their choices that they made in this area as they also removed the achievements that awarded seals. I mean how will you feel knowing that there is no way to catch up with people unless you empty your wallets. Before it was player friendly now it's not. From play to win to pay to win.

Aestetics 4.5/5
They added some spell animation for each type and menu looks cool. Event animaiton different.

Story 1.5/5
They added more quests. There were description on every one of them.

Total: 12/20 I would not recommend this game anymore after the update.

Final remark: They ruined the game after the update. Changed it from play to win into pay to win. If you want to play you will have to pay. Before the update I liked the game so much that I chose to support it by buying some seals as a sign of my appreciation, but now I began to regret doing so. I am very disappointed.

-Thank you for taking the time to read.

Just want to go on record that I absolutely LOVE!!! this game. Soooo sad to see it go down the drain :(

Huge applause for the entire development team for providing something so fantastically original, and exciting. Easily my favorite CCG, having extensively played Magic, Hearthstone, and Yugi-oh. The originality of the board layout, the extra depth of where to place/move your guys is absolutely phenomenal, and unlike any other CCG that I've experienced. The diversity of heroes, their impact on the game, building a deck around your hero, and leveling them, all very exciting game mechanics.

I really just can't say enough about how enticing and addicting this game was for me. How many sleepless nights, putting together win streaks, tweaking decks, climbing the ranked ladder.

Also, I only spent about $5 on the game, and considered my decks to mostly be top tier, having achieved Champion?! 1 rank (I think.. 3rd from the top). So it definitely was NOT A Pay to win game, and I felt rewarded you nicely for grinding away for more packs. Plus there is always the infernal pit should you want to take the time to utilize it.

The art is brilliant. Some of it just stunning.

I really can't say enough about how great this game was for me, and I really hope that Ubisoft, or the involved developers of this game do something along this lines in the future. I think it's a special game, and all the bashing of Ubisoft is gross to witness. It's business, and it's corporate America, where the almighty $ speaks.. maybe they should have charged more? Then people will ♥♥♥♥♥ about that.

I will always have memories of this wonderful game, and hope to see it live on elsewhere in the future.
