Hi all.

We will take the servers down at 13:00 today to apply a mass ELO reset to all players. Looking at the stats we have available it seems this is the best way of getting good results from the new matchmaker's settings.

Taking into account the changes that were made in yesterday's patch, players should now form a traditional bell-curve on the ELO scale as opposed to the strange muddle we had as a result of the prior matchmaking system. This issue was caused by a bug in the system that allowed you to make ELO gains by chewing up players that were far lower ranked than yourself.

The result of us resetting people's ELO should immediately resolve long queue time issues, and in the long term ensure that people are where they should be in terms of their rating.

Hi folks,

Patch notes are below!

Big change number one was an overhaul to some of the network code with regards to hit-detection and general "smoothness" of play, please do feedback on how things feel now.

The second big change was a complete rework on how the matchmaker works, due to the sweeping changes we are very interested in you reporting how things are post-patch, we don't expect it to be perfect (although it should be a huge leap in the right direction) so really do appreciate your feedback!

Oh, big change number three, possibly the stand-out point for the entire patch....you can now switch region in the menu. ;)

We also made some changes to pricing in the store, if you have the grind version of a robe you will unlock discounts for the cash versions! There's also some more new store items, go take a peek.

This week's patch-notes were too big to fit into a Steam post, so please check the below link!

We will have some downtime for patching, there are no game-play changes this week so there will not be any full patch notes. Changes have been focused on the server code and EAC, there's also a whole bunch of new content in the store.

If you experience code Sasquatch/Dirty Rat post-patch, please follow the steps to manually install EAC here: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?766968-EasyAntiCheat-Support-Thread

As there servers are down for patching right now I should let you know what we've changed, please do read on!

This week was a mix of general bits and pieces, again most of our time has been towards getting the servers in tip-top condition.

Check the store for new content (new robes and some trinkets), as well as this there's also a special new weapon to commemorate the Midgård Windbag-Chasing Championship.

For those of you unfamiliar with this game it involves 22 obscenely rich Wizards removing their traditional robes (in favour of shorts), and then chasing an inflated bag made from the epidermis of a dead animal for 90 minutes. Who ever said Wizards had to make sense?

This particular weapon is available for a limited time period only, it will come off sale shortly after the end of a similar event which so happens to coincide with the MWCC.

Patch notes below!

- Improved server scalability

- Store offers sorting adjusted so relevant offers end up next to each other.

- Founder imps should now spawn with the player consistently.

- Cold damage in Earth projectiles changed from 75 to 55 at magnitude 1 (DR) and from 110 to 80 at magnitude 2 (DRR)
- Natures Call Imps' damage changed from 62 earth + wet to 60 earth + wet.

- Login-Server stability fixes
- Anti-Hagfish measures
- Improved server communication prevents play button from getting stuck in permalocked state.
- Proper block and hit sounds for all weapon projectiles.
- Fixed an issue where the game server wouldn't unload accounts when removing players prematurely.

STOCKHOLM — June 4, 2014 — Paradox Interactive and Paradox North today announced that Magicka: Wizard Wars, the online spellcasting action player-vs-player (PvP) game where Wizards compare each other’s flammability, has been downloaded over 500,000 times. Since the game began its Open Beta phase last week, Magicka: Wizard Wars has expanded its community to over half a million players and together they’ve cast 97,704,758 spells during the first week. Positive reception from players and media alike has prompted Paradox to add more servers and keep the pool of available magical talent growing.

“If we could personally shake hands with each player and give them our thanks, we would, but there’s too many; it’d probably mean a hiatus from actually working on the game,” said John Hargelid, Studio Manager for Paradox North. “We’re delighted that everybody likes the game so far, but this is just the beginning for Magicka: Wizard Wars. We’ve quadrupled server capacity since last week and we’re adding more servers, ironing the creases out of the robes, making sure the Wizard entrails are the right consistency – everything it takes to make sure the game stays a strong entry in the legacy of Magicka.”

The Open Beta for Magicka: Wizard Wars is free to download and play immediately, where teams of Wizards go head-to-head in intense player-versus-player (PvP) action. Utilizing the celebrated spellcasting system of Magicka, Wizards combine elements to generate on-the-fly spells and secure victory for their team. Players can also hone their skills against one another in the one-on-one duel mode, utilizing all of their tricks in order to be the last robe standing. With short battles, skill-based spellcasting, and plenty of humor, Magicka: Wizard Wars presents a new way to experience the chaos of Magicka with friends and foes alike.

To enter the chaotic realm of Magicka: Wizard Wars and participate in the mayhem firsthand, download the game here: access.wizardwars.com
