Friday Update - Building Character

Welcome to a round up of the week! We have community tool birthdays, a slotted surprise, and more:

Happy Birthday HEX PvP Tools!
HEX PvP Tools turned 1 year old last Tuesday. As a retrospective, Fred went over some truly impressive numbers in his forum birthday thread. The site is amazing, and if you haven't checked it out yet, you totally should. It is a wonderful place to learn more about the ever evolving HEX meta. Happy Birthday, HEX PvP Tools, and keep up the amazing work, Fred!

While we are celebrating Fred's labor of love, we also wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for the amazing resources you have created over the years. Whether you've put together a collection manager or a wiki, a fansite or a shop, you bring our community together and make it easier to dive right into our game. To everyone who has worked on a community resource, be it an Auction House tracker or a content hub, thank you! You make HEX a great place to be.

Charity Stream
Speaking of those who go above and beyond, InfamousNeo and our stream team are rallying once again for our annual Charity Stream! Over the past several years, they have raised over $60,000 for sick children. With your help, they hope to make that number grow. This year, the Charity Stream will run from the 26th to the 29th of October (full details here). There will be games, prizes, and giveaways, so mark your calendars! You won't want to miss it.

In honor of the charity stream, we will be granting everyone with an account by October 29th the 2017 Charity Sleeve! We will also be granting the stylish Diamond's Favor AA as well. This event has continually showcased the best side of our community. Let's show them what we're made of once again!





Building Character
We are pleased to announce that with our next live update, we will be bringing everyone's character slots to 20! This is something our hardcore PvE players have been wanting for quite some time, and so we are going to double down and make it happen. With twice your character slots, we hope you will enjoy trying out more of our exciting race/class combinations as you work your way through the campaign. Enjoy!

Tournament Support
Please note: if you happen to have technical issues with the Clash or Bash events, our support team requests that you submit an output log from that same day along with your ticket. This is essential, not only to ensure your ticket gets resolved in a timely fashion, but also to help us prevent similar problems from occurring in the future. Output, error, and crash logs can be found in the HEX: Shards of Fate program install folder on your machine.

A Stand Up Comic



Our friends at IDW Publishing have launched an amazing Kickstarter — a print-only, 200 page, hardcover, quarterly comics & culture magazine called FULL BLEED. Everyone here at the office is signing up, so we wanted to let you know about it too! The first volume has an exclusive Stephen King interview in it, and this thing is ONLY on Kickstarter. Check it out!

See you in the battlegrounds~

Friday Update - Family Matters

Welcome to a round up of the week! We have our final Exalted player for the year, new VIP Alternate Arts, and more:

Come Join the Team!
We are looking for a few more dedicated and passionate individuals to join the HEX team for the Visual Effects and Technical Artist positions. As you know, we like to pull from the community whenever possible, so if you have the skills and experience to help make fantastic things for our players, you should definitely check this out! Follow the above links or visit our careers page and submit your resume today.

VIP Rotation
Our VIP Alternate Arts are rotating next week. This upcoming VIP Sealed tournament will be the first time you can get your hands on the beautiful but deadly AA Massacre and AA Orchi-Notion!





Now you can dream stompy, ramp dreams with a stylish Orchi-Notion. One should always dream big, am I right? If that much cuteness isn't lethal, you can finish the job with the ultimate dragon breath. That Uruunaz doesn't mess around! With his help, you can answer your opponent's troop swarms with a "wide" smile of your own. Join our VIP program and prepare to win your own beautiful AA copies next weekend.

You can learn more about our VIP program here or by visiting our VIP FAQ.

Lazgar's Vengeance Ban
On Tuesday, Corey Burkhart joined us once again for a Watch & Ban List update, where he announced some pretty big news. On Monday, September 18th at 10am Pacific, Lazgar's Vengeance will be banned from the Standard Format.



Lazgar's has been deemed too restrictive for the current meta, so in the interest of promoting archetype diversity, it is going to be removed. Banning a card is not something we do lightly, but we feel that this decision will create a better constructed environment for everyone to enjoy. For full details on the team's reasoning on this announcement, be sure to check out Burkhart's full write-up.

Pick Me, Coach!
Community member CoachFliperon has been creating excellent PvE content on his own for some time. Now he is looking to jump-start this passion with a group of like-minded individuals looking to build a bigger PvE community. If you've ever thought about creating guides, decks, or videos about HEX's campaign, you should definitely read his thread over on the HEX forums. Even if you just want to hang out with others who've been bitten by the campaign bug, the thread is worth a look. CoachFliperon is giving away a veritable hoard of gold. Come help name the group and get involved for some of the 1,000,000 gold he is giving away!

Need a Hero
Our third and final Exalted this year is someone who joined our community relatively recently, but whose impact has been felt deeply in that time. They have been a tireless proponent of the game from the moment they joined and have continually striven to help others play at a competitive level. This player writes extensively, whether it is articles covering the latest constructed tech or programs for displaying decklists just a little bit easier, and they have even compiled resources for players looking to break into the constructed scene. As if that weren't enough, they also find time to stream regularly to showcase exciting new decks and help move the meta forward. For this unwavering outreach in the constructed realm, we are happy to announce that Jeff Hoogland is this year's Exalted Player:



You entertain, inform, and help make HEX constructed easier for everyone to pick up, which is why we are pleased to grant a vanity card in your honor. Thank you so much for your insightful play and extraordinary commitment to showcasing what HEX has to offer.

See you in the battlegrounds~
