What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Faeria is in early development. Throughout our Kickstarter experience we learned a lot from the community, and we have still a lot to learn from you! Entering Steam Early Access will enable players to obtain access to the game early and help shape its future.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Faeria is now Free-to-Play, but will stay in Early Access for several more months as we get ready for our official Version 1.0 release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The current version of Faeria already includes a lot of very interesting features, but we are using Early Access to gather feedback from our community. We need your help to shape the finishing touches! Features due by our 1.0 release include:

  • Game interface improvements
  • Emotes
  • Improved spectator mode
  • Complete PvE mode
  • New cosmetics
  • Tablet support
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements
  • At least 10 new cards in the core set
  • New illustrations
  • New languages
  • Even more great features that we aren't quite ready to share yet

Once we leave Early Access and launch version 1.0, there’s even more we aim to bring to Faeria…

  • Expansions
  • Fully integrated tournaments
  • Console and phone versions

And much more! Join the conversation and help us shape Faeria on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit & our forums.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Even though there are some very important features still to come, Faeria currently offers all of the key features you'd expect of a quality game:

  • Up to 20 hours of Single Player gameplay [NEW]
  • Pandora Mode (Arena) [NEW]
  • 15 solo missions to learn the game
  • 257 Unique Cards
  • Practice vs AI
  • Battle mode (PVP)
  • Ranked mode
  • Tournament features
  • Spectator mode
  • Friends list + challenge your friends
  • In-game shop for: Booster Packs, Full Core Set, Avatars and Orbs!
  • Awesome art and illustrations

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Faeria is Free-to-Play, and will remain so once fully released.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Every one of us is a part of our community. We are gamers first. We are open to all ideas, big or small, through our various channels. Those ideas help us shape the future of Faeria in terms of features, gameplay, and polish.

We want as many Faeria players as possible to be active in providing us with feedback!”

Faeria Friday: Mulligans and more

A little bit about what we've been working on, and some clarification on our mulligan system. Can you guess which card is getting the new art below?



Hidden fixes

We did a small game server update this week to fix a few bugs. It required no client update and did not warrant any server restarts. It was the spooky ghost patch that you never knew existed. The following issues were corrected:
  • Fixed an issue where Rapala's 3rd Epic quest actions could be bugged for the first action of every turn
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes could cause the AI to loop forever while calculating a reply
What's to come

One of the most common questions we get is: "What's coming next?"

As mentioned in our Roadmap post in late July, we have a lot of work ahead of us before we're ready to exit Early Access.

We generally try and avoid revealing too much about our tasty new features until they're well out of the oven and ready to share with everyone. It makes our big patches more exciting and keeps development fluid. It's not great to announce "Krog is getting a new T-shirt," only to find out a week later that maybe giving Krog that new T-shirt isn't such a great idea, or that maybe he should wear a sweater instead. In such a case, we have to be the bearer of bad news and let everyone know that Krog won't be getting that T-shirt so many players already fell in love with, after all.



Rest assured that we, as always, have a lot of features coming down the pipe - many of which were raised in priority, or added high on the "to-do" list thanks to community feedback. What you share with us really can change our direction significantly at times. Keep it up!

Mulligan numbers

"Why do I so often redraw the same card during a Mulligan?"

It's a common question we're asked. So common, in fact, that we ran some tests to be sure there weren't any problems with the mulligan system. So far, we've found it to be working 100% as expected - and suspect this may mostly be somewhat of a perception issue, negativity bias, or even a misunderstanding of how our mulligan system works.

In Faeria, as in many "real world" card games, when you select a card to be mulliganed, you shuffle it back into your deck before you redraw another card. This means it is completely possible to redraw that same card, or even another like it from your deck. The lack of an animation showing you this may lead to some confusion here. Let's go into some numbers that may be helpful.

⚠️WARNING: DANGEROUS MATHS AHEAD.⚠️

Let's say you mulligan all three cards you're presented with, and your deck consists of 30 unique cards. The odds you see at least one of those cards again after redrawing are about 28%. In other words, a little less than a third of the time you're going to see the same card again.

Now let's say your deck has 3 of each card, or 10 unique cards in the entire deck. If you mulligan all 3 of your cards, there is a 67% chance you're going to see at least one of those cards return to your hand.

If you have a deck with 3 of each card, keep two cards, and mulligan only one, the odds to redraw that card or one of the same type are about 10.7%.


Why not make it so the card you mulligan isn't shuffled back into the deck?

This would solve a lot of the negative feelings associated with this specific problem, but otherwise significantly impact the balance of the game as a whole and the pool of decks that are generally reliable to construct. Suddenly, you'd be much more able to tailor your starting hand and have that "perfect rush start" or "perfect combo" most of the time, or at least more of the time. This is the same reason we were hesitant to implement the new mulligan system as-is. (Remember, not so long ago in Faeria, mulligans were all or nothing.) It's also part of the same reason players start with only 3 cards and not 4, though that also has to do with simplifying the amount of starting options a player is presented with. We're talking about the fundamental mechanics of Faeria here - the subtle things ticking under the hood that keep everything in delicate balance. Change such load-bearing variables and the consequences are not small.

Anyway, if you still think you're seeing odd Mulligan behavior, please continue to let us know - but try and keep the numbers above in mind. If things still seem way out of whack to you, we need to know!

Monthly Cup and ESL

It's time for Monthly Cup qualifiers again. Watch them streamed live this weekend on https://www.twitch.tv/itscappuccino, the current #1 Ranked God!
Note that our esports website has been loading a little slowly lately. It's a known issue that we're working on. Thank you for your patience.

This Sunday is also the last ESL Go4Faeria Cup for September. Register and play to earn your points and qualify for the $400 finals! You can find current point standings here.
By the way, you may have noticed some familiar faces strewn throughout this news post. They're part of our new set of BetterTTV emotes that are on their way, which are tied to our Discord channel. If you want to use them in Twitch chat, you'll need to install the BTTV browser extension.



Have a fantastic weekend.

Faeria Friday: Monthly cup results

Monthly cup results are in. Follow us on Instagram! Burgers.



Monthly Cup #3 Results

If you missed the Monthly Cup last Saturday, you missed quite a show. With close to 1500 viewers across all streams, there was an impressive scramble of activity.



After several incredibly close series of matches, Sweety takes his second Monthly Cup championship! If you've been keeping track, Sweety has now placed in the Top 3 of every Monthly Cup. It's safe to say at this point that he's pretty good. He'll be invited along with Modgnik to the next Monthly Cup, taking place Saturday, October 8th. Cappuccino also made his Monthly Cup placement debut, and one bounty from a previous champion was claimed by HeavyCC, who defeated Gravekper and took fourth place.

You can view the full completed brackets here.

During the stream, thousands of prizes were given away, and thousands of Eggs were hatched. If you didn't get one - don't worry. We're not only planning on making the Eggs return for each Monthly Cup, but we're looking at ways to provide more opportunities for you to earn them throughout the month. Stay tuned for more information.

You can watch the entire tournament here on our Twitch.tv channel:
And if you're interested, don't forget to sign up for the next Cup's qualifiers:
Instagram



We've put together a large amount of never before seen concept art that we plan on sharing exclusively on Instagram! Follow us there for regular content throughout the week.

Burger party



On another note, we've noticed we haven't shared a lot of photos from the offices in quite some time. Here's a picture of a lunchtime burger party from earlier this week.

We'd also like to take a moment to thank those of you who took the time to share your thoughts with us on last week's community survey regarding the availability of the Core Set. You've given us a lot of very valuable information, and we appreciate your passion and honesty. The team continues to discuss and analyze the large amount of results.

Have a great weekend, and don't forget to sign up for this Sunday's ESL Cup, or tune in to a stream to watch it.

Very fun and exciting combination between turn based strategy and collectible card games. Its a bit puzzling at first, but once you get the rules its a wonderful game. If you like Magic the gathering and Battle Isle, this is the game you should like to play. Very nice too that it has a Solo mode which does not require a buy-in to play. Highly recommended.

TLDR: A fun, fair CCG which at the time of writing this review, I have very few complaints about

As someone who plays a fair amount of CCGs, Faeria is honestly quite amazing and deserves all the recognition in the world.

Unlike most popular CCGs where "tempo" is king, and playing on a curve every turn will net you a win, Faeria introduces new mechanics which takes the emphasis off tempo and places it more on value. Despite this, the game has no set meta, you will face extremely varied and unique decks while playing and a distinct line can be drawn between Agro, Midrange and Control all of which are viable in their own way.

The board adds a surprising amount of strategy to the game and greatly enriches the overall experience and makes it distinct from many other CCGs.

If you enjoy CCGs or ever have in the past or even just enjoy stratgey in general, I urge you fullheartedly to try Faeria out.

The game offers a tonne of free packs via it's single player content to kickstart new players and the pull ratios seem to be pretty good from my limited experience, so I do not feel the game will be too grindy.

I personally would recommend it, why? Let me tell ya.

The game has a good look and nice artstyle, it also has little singleplayer campaigns which make it a lot easier to get into the game and it's unique mechanics. Overall, I'd say it's a fun little game worth trying out if you are into turn-based card games.

Better than Hearthstone in the balancing department. Visuals and music that reminds me of Ori and the Blind Forest. World presentation straight outta a children's fairy tale book, making the game FANTABULOUS! DEFINITELY a good choice of a game to download.

A game of deep strategy where turns don't play themselves. The basic set gives a wide variety of deck archetypes. Very little RNG and better balance than Hearthstone (even with this game being "early access" and HS being several expansions in).
