Weekly Post #25: Daily Missions and Ranked Rewards Update~

FIrst, I'd like to direct everyone to the details of our new hotfix update if you haven't given it a once-over yet. It is a sizable group of bug fixes including the deckbuilder menu, trade interface, and buggy card interactions.


Daily Missions Make A Return~




At long last, missions return to Infinity Wars. Some additional incentive is on the way for your regular gameplay. Killed 50 characters? Won a few games? You get extra rewards for things like that, with a few missions every day. Rewards may vary, from IP to Rift Tokens to IP/XP boosters for example - options are still being tested and explored.


Here are a few more examples we might attempt:

  • Use the Trading Post ten times.
  • Play with a deck that is three of the same purity.
  • Play with a deck that has at least X (Subtype) characters in it.
  • Virus: Developers carry a virus. Encounter us in PVP to receive the virus, and a reward.

There are so many options with this kind of thing. Eventually, we might even attempt to run community-wide missions/goals so that it doesn't just happen during expansion preorders. There is a lot that could be done with weekend, week-long, or month-long events; complete with themes for certain fictional events or scenarios. For now, just individual missions. You'll be able to experience this in one of our next updates, probably between October and November. In the meantime this feature will be tested and iterated further.



Ranked Rewards Update

After meeting and talking with some of our community mods, we have put together what we understand to be a road toward better rewards for Ranked leaderboard resets, in the short term focusing on this trial month. As we mentioned before, the current "trial" season will end on September 30th, with reward bundles going out to players. Please note that we have heard player concerns about RNG cards, distribution of Penta-packs and more. On the basis of this being a one-month season, here's the breakdown for September:

Prizes:
***Note: all Infinity cards are selectable, and all Golds will be Random for this month.


1st place

Gold-foil (all x1): Legendary, Epic, Rare, Uncommon and Common
Gold (all x2) Legendary, Epic, Rare, Uncommon and Common
Infinity: Legendary x1, Epic x2, Rare x3, Uncommon x3, Common x3
7,500 LP

-----------

2nd Place

Gold (all x2): Legendary, Epic, Rare, Uncommon and Common
Infinity Epic x2, Rare x2, Uncommon x3, Common x3
5,000 LP

-----------

3rd-5th Place

Gold (all x1): Legendary, Epic, Rare, Uncommon and Common
Infinity: Epic x1, Rare x1, Uncommon x2, Common x2
5,000 LP

-----------

6th-10th Place

Gold: Epic x2, Rare x1
Infinity: Rare x1, Uncommon x1, Common x1
3,500 LP

-----------

11th-25th Place

Gold: Rare x2
Infinity: Rare x1
2,000 LP

-----------

26th-50th Place

Gold: Uncommon x2
10 Collection Penta-Packs

-----------

51st-100th Place

Gold: Uncommon x1
5 Collection Penta-Packs

-----------


Okay, those are the rewards available come October 1st. Please remember that this is just a set-up for the trial season, and if necessary we can adjust the scaling or the contents to some degree. The current plan is to continue testing the 1-month season format for Ranked PVP, for at least one to three more months. In this time we will be discussing season length for the forseeable future beyond that, as we have lots of pros and cons with each duration. For example, we can't justify alt-arts for a 1-month duration, but a 3-month season is a longer grind. Various proposals on the forums will be read and taken into serious consideration. One thing we know for certain: we will finally be removing the Champion title issue. In future seasons, it will only be awarded at the conclusion of a season, and not right after a reset as players get their first points.

Going forward, we are considering various options for rewards at the top of the leaderboard which have some exclusive appeal to Ranked gameplay. One idea brought up was the concept of a special battlefield that goes to whoever has 1st place during the time of the reset, and each time you got the position your battlefield would transform a bit (such as a pile of gold getting bigger and bigger each time you got 1st place). This example was well-received by the mod team and staff, so that is a possibility in the future. Other concepts are also being considered as well.

Edit: Regarding choice reward cards, we recognize the value of being able to choose your reward card in a skill competition. In the case of individual card rewards, therefore, we are seriously considering the implementation of an in-game "pick your Infinity-border card" system that works directly in-game. We may opt for something similar to the old Golden Ticket, something I pitched for IBs earlier this year. I'll let you know when this gets locked-in for development.

Sunday Tournaments - New Info (Qualifying, Prizes, Format)

Additional details are now available, explaining how these recent Sunday Swiss tournaments - the last two weeks, and one more this Sunday - will determine qualification of a competitor for the final top-16 event on the 25th of September. Please note that this is the first time we've tested this exact setup, so if any rulings seem unfavorable we can adjust them for the month of October.

How To Qualify

The first three Sundays in the month are Swiss events. You only need to enter one Swiss event to try and qualify for the fourth-Sunday top 16 monthly tournament. Once all three of these events have come to pass (in this case, September 18th), all players with all their score data will be added to a spreadsheet. We will then begin sorting everyone. Placement is explained below, in a short version as well as paragraph form:

  1. Series Record
  2. Second-best score (if a player attended two or more events in the series)
  3. Points Difference (based on total # of individual games won and lost)
  4. Special note: For each person who does not show up, the next-highhest ranked player will be slotted in. If you're rank ~17-25 or so, be prepared if you can attend on the 25th, just in case.

Placement will be according to series record, above all else. This means that anyone with a 4-0 record will advance automatically, and several players who have a 3-1 record. If we get to position 16 and multiple people tie the series record for 16th place, anyone who attends a second event will receive priority. If two or more players attended a second event, we'll go by their performance in that second event. If neither player has attended two events we go to Points Difference; which shows their relative performance by individual game. For reference, I set up our spreadsheet and did a sample top-16 based on the last two events. Slot 2 was left empty in case we do not get a repeat 4-0 player (Adorabear or Tenaccarli).





Seeding


We will use the tried-and-true seeding format whereby, for example, the top two players will be at opposite ends of the ladder bracket. In short, this is designed so that the tournament brackets are not so one-sided later in the event. The full format is best described with the sample image below, showing the winners' bracket layout.






Base on the above images, some examples of first-round matchups would find Adorabear vs Citridon, AccessDeny vs Ninjardo, and Toon310 vs InvertedEye. Please keep in mind that the third Swiss event this Sunday will be factored in. If you're low on the top-16 or not in there entirely, it would be best to try and qualify with high placement this Sunday if you are pursuing the Elimination event on the 25th.



Event Format - Monthly Finale


The event format we will use for this month is Double Elimination. Everyone starts with "two lives," and on your first series loss you will be sent to the losers' bracket, where you get one last chance to survive. The longer you last in the winners' bracket, the easier the tournament will be if/when you eventually drop to the losers' bracket.

To compensate for the fact that a loser's bracket typically lasts longer, we will do like in the past where some of the rounds are a best-of-1. Largenuggets and I have agreed to make the last, and second-to-last round a best-of-3 for the losers' bracket. The entire winners' bracket will be best-of-three however, and we'll observe the "Two Lives" rule for the grand finals. This means the following: If the losers' bracket finalist defeats the winners' bracket finalist in the grand final series, they will have to do so again. This is because the winners' bracket finalist will have only lost their first life, like everyone else in the event. If this happens there will be a second best-of-three to determine the final outcome, and decks may be changed for this second series.



Prizes


These are the prizes for September's monthly event. It's simple and pretty flexible in that it's largely about LP. You could use it for a large supply of rift tokens, penta-packs, some cosmetics, or a mixture. Delicious.

1st: LP x 25,000...with Infinity-border Legendary x1, Epic x2, Rare x3, Uncommon x4, Common x5
2nd: LP x 10,000..with Infinity-border Epic x1, Rare x2, Uncommon x3, Common x4
3rd: LP x 5,000.....with Infinity-border Rare x2, Uncommon x3, Common x4
4th: LP x 2,000.....with Infinity-border Uncommon x3, Common x4
5/6: LP x 1,500.....with Infinity-border Uncommon x2, Common x3
7/8: LP x 1,000.....with Infinity-border Common x3



Please post any questions you have in the discussion thread.

“[While at the Australian EB Expo] Nothing even came close to the level of quality of Infinity Wars. It almost shouldn't have been in the same area; it should have been in an open space, where everybody was guaranteed to walk by. The game deserved that level of foot traffic.”

One of the most, if not the MOST strategic and fun games I have ever played. It's so well made and has an increduble depth to it that no other game can compare to. Watching your opponents and predicting their moves is only the first level of play that this game brings. Incredibly awesome. Recommend so hard. Being free is a plus, so try it out!

A super compelling and addictive Trading Card Game with deep interesting lore. The card game itself is easy to learn and very effective in creating an exciting experience for any hardcore or softcore gamer. Its leveling system supplements the need to play more and collect more fully animated cards with varying powerful abilities.

If you like card games, I highly recommend this one. It takes some time to get used to all the factions and cards but after awhile, you learn the strengths and weaknesses of each faction/card type.

I like Infinity Wars, I really do, but this is the closest to a non-recommendation as you're going to get. Keep that in mind.

Cards are great, design is great, gameplay is great, and there's a lot of single-player content, which is great.

The problem is multi-player. Maybe it's my connection, which is admittedly very bad, but I cannt play anything multi-player. I don't know if there are not that many other players or what. I just sit and wait in queue. At some point, I'd really like to test my decks against others, and I can't do that. I'm not even that big into the competitive portion of games like this and, like I said, there's a ton of single-player stuff.

Anyway, I really like this game, but just know that there's a possibility you won't be able to play multi-player.

I've been playing Infinity Wars for about a week and 34 hours already! Can't even help myself. My first card game was Pokemon but let's face it, they just looked pretty. The game sucked. Yu-Gi-Oh! is first love But Konami killed it a while ago. The only way I've been able to get my card game fix is playing old GBA/Vita games. I played Magic for about a year. The game is deep and I respect the hell out of it but the lore didn't grab me. I didn't find myself invested in the cards. Hearthstone is fun but I needed something deeper.
This game caught my attention a while ago but my Steam back list for games is..I'm sure you know all too well. It's a free to play game but I saw the content on sale so I decided to check it out to see if it was worth it. First of all, it is definitely not pay to win. It's git gud to win. A week in and you get a lot of cards through campaign mode and leveling u. I lucked out because I got some pretty awesome rare and epic cards. I've been getting better at deck building. I was getting my ♥♥♥ kicked this morning and then I threw a deck together with the few factionless cards I have. I didn't have enough to make a factionless deck, so I combined it with the Dawn faction (or whatever its called) Took it for a test run, it drained my morale. I keep forgetting about morale. So I combine it with Genesis. Low morale costs and power up items. I am 7-2 with this deck as of now. My first lost taught me how to use the deck better. The 2nd loss showed me that I need more cards for this build. But still not bad for using cards given to you for free.

But tomorrow is pay day and I'm definitely giving this game my money. I can already see myself putting 1000s of hours in. Some people say the content is over priced. But they put in all the hard work and released the game for free. Given you a method to play competitively without spending a dime. Even if you lose you still level up and get points. They have every right to price their content at whatever they like. I'm buying all of the items on sale but I'm buying 1 at full price. I think it's completely worth it for all the time I know I will put in it. But it will be the one and only time. After this I'm waiting for sales to come around again.

Months and months with the new devs, and a ridiculous amount of issues persist:

  • Dozens of bugs, many of them game-breaking - including wins and losses not registering in ranked play.

  • Extremely limited draft pool, majority of cards need heavy balancing and are restricted from draft.

  • Long ranked queues are only getting longer, constant matches against the same players - no matter how many are online.

  • Even when the devs try to fix something, it rarely works. Such as the three cards "removed" from ranked a few weeks ago that still pop up.

New dev team seems more interested in putting out new sets, DLC, and (for who knows what reason) tournaments for the ~150 playerbase. Too bad, because this game could be great... and it never will be. Seriously, they've patched all of three bugs since the beginning of the year. Don't waste your time (and money) like I did.

I use to love this game,
but bad coding,
slow developement,
and an all but assured slow demise for the game is holding it back.
The community use to be one of the strong points for this game, but as you can see...it is slowly rotting away. There are quite a few umadbro types out there these days, and balance is simply out of whack. The best way to win, is by playing decks that are neither fun, nor inspiring.

That said, the game is still solid, fun, and with quite a good community. It's just a few bad eggs spoil it for everyone, these sad narcissitic souls however will never be able to see how their actions affect other people.

It is one thing to win overwhelmingly, which in it self isn't bad.
It's another to take away another's ability to win in itself.
--------
P.s....games are meant to be fun, if your deck is only fun for you, and doesn't let your opponent actually play....looking at you mill decks, then maybe you should try playing bots. You'd get the same result but with less players quiting the game. Especially if you're doing this outside of ranked.

The DLC for this game costs £56.46. That's the sale price. It costs more than most AAA games. Completely unrealistic expectations from the developers and an unethical attempt to extort money from their fanbase.

Seeing as how there are some not so good reviews for this game I'd just like to drop that this game has multiple campaigns that are alot of fun.

Give this game a shot, playing through the campaigns will give you alot of enjoyment, and lets you try out (if memory serves) practically every faction against every other faction.

While there may be some big name digital card games on the horizon that you hear people murmering about, it would be unwise to discount Infinty Wars because they are a smaller company.

Infinity Wars takes the classic TCG genre that we know and love, and truly digitise it and make full use of the medium. This is not a Magic the Gathering clone that keeps track of the numbers for you. This is not a simple basic TCG built around your favourite MMO mythos. This is an actual strategic masterpiece that requires use of both advanced planning and bluffing mechanics.

It is free to play, in the true sense of the word. At no point are you required to spend large amounts of money to get a collection started. After two hours of the campaign, you should have enough cards to make a deck of any faction, and won a few free boosters along the way. Meanwhile, you can acrue Infinity Points by playing, which are awarded win or lose. You can then use these points to buy more boosters or enter the Rift Runs and win more cards! And there is a trading system already in place, so you can trade cards you do not want for those that you do without hoping to open the super mega mythic rare i-win card in a random pack!

So while your collection would certianly grow if you spend money on the game, it is not impossible to walk away with a complete playset of everything without spending a cent!

The point is, it's different to the other exciting games out there now, and risk-free and worth the look of anyone with even a passing interest in the TCG genre!

The best online deckbuilding game there is, if you ask me. Lots of interesting cards, various rather original factions with their own strategies and nicely animated cards. (EVERY CARD IS ANIMATED!) As for the free2play - well I never spent a dime on it and still had a lot of fun. You earn a decent amout of ingame currency just through the campaign, challenges and just normal games. Plus you get free cards and booster packs for wins and for levelups. It certainly could be better - but compared to basically every other online CCG on the market it's pretty good.

A while ago a friend dropped by and offered me an invite code he randomly collected at a PAX event. Ive been hooked ever since. The little business card with the code advertised the game to me as having amazing animated cards, but it was the level of strategy in the game and unique mechanics which immediately grabbed my attention. Since then I have played ALOT and have still not yet gotten bored because every game is different. The cards and mechanics combo with each other in a way that rewards creative deck building and making bold and creative plays in game.

There is always alot of discussion around free to play and pay to win and everyone has their own perspective. I believe that this game is one of the more truely free to play games out there. This is for two good reasons...
- First, I have built a full collection as well as pre-ordered many packs for the upcoming expansion and given away many cards including rares all while being almost entirely free to play. (I did purchase some alternate card backs/sleeves)
- Second, certain cards are powerful and rare but extremely powerful decks are able to be built without any 'valuable' cards at all. The emphasis on player skill and in-game decisions means that this game could never be pay to win.

I would recommend this game to anyone interested in trading card games and would advise playing before comparing to other games like MTG and Hearthstone because Infinity Wars has many unique features and I believe a bright future!
