As usual, the Ravager and Tinker Surtalmor Gauntlets will be available for $1.99 each in the FORGE Store. As with the Lojki Armor/Badge, once June is over this badge and Armor Set will be locked forever - so make sure you unlock them while you can!

Harvested from the broken body of the legendary Sootre, the Fire Giant, this armor still beats with the pulse of hardened lava he was composed of. It contains the strength of fire, the unrelenting heat of power reverberating throughout its core. You will intimidate with this armor’s firey glow as the flames of the Sootre’s soul still fights to escape its confines. This armor is a reward for those who have been fighting for the Forge, who have sworn allegiance to the fight to release their god from the Devourer’s prison. Only those who have proven to be brave and relentless enough will wear this armor and strike fear into enemy hearts and those less experienced than you.

These patch notes are intended to highlight the most significant changes but don’t cover every modification to the game as part of this update.

Key New Features

  • FORGE Teams!
  • Lojki’s Undraskalmor Helm
  • Fixed stability issues
  • Added Shaman Pioneer Armor Set


  • Added Loading screens between store, Guilds, and Teams
  • Created new Character main menu item. Level up is now a sub menu of Character
  • Added a new Player Profile screen to view your badges. Currently only the
  • Lojki’s April Exclusive badge is there.
  • Ability to receive Admin messages.


  • Ability to Create, join, and manage teams. Players get one team slot for free. VIP players get 3 team slots for free. Additional team slots can be purchased for $0.99 USD in the store.
  • New Lobby system allows members to queue up without needing to be Steam friends first.
  • New chat system is more redundant then the previous chat used for Guild. Guild chat was also updated.
  • Team badges allow teams to level up. Current badges include Seasons, Attendance, Win Streak, and Games played. More to come.
  • First Beta Season has started and runs through the end of April.
  • Season winners are determined by ELO. Your team’s ELO goes up and down based on wins and losses and the ELO of the team you played. Our algorithm is similar to standard ELO algorithms and includes a momentum variable meant to help teams get to their estimated ELO’s quickly but once there to give them more stability. This way a team is not afraid to keep playing once they reach a higher ELO.

Undraskalmor Helm

  • All classes have a new Helm which has green accents. These helms will only be available in April. Once you receive one, you will always have it.
  • The Assassin, Pathfinder, Pyromancer, Shaman, and Warden will all be given away for playing different amounts of Forge.
  • The Ravager and Tinker will be available for $1.99 USD each in the FORGE store.
  • If you collect all 5 Helms from playing in April you will receive the Lojki’s Helm badge.

First, before I talk about what’s beyond teams I want to give a quick update. Teams has officially entered Closed Beta. If you are a Closed Beta Tester you can view directions on how to access Teans in the CB forums. FORGE Teams is very close to the game design that you all came up with. I had to make a couple slight changes/modifications as well as added a few additional features. I think you will be very happy with the results.

As you know, we’ve identified player retention as the biggest issue right now with FORGE. Most agree that the core gameplay is really fun and enjoyable. We keep getting messages from players saying FORGE is the PvP game they’ve always been looking for – and that’s actually why we made it. However, we don’t have all the hooks in place to keep players engaged. FORGE is fun, but there’s nothing really egging you on to keep playing. And, getting and finding a game with the players you want to play with can be difficult. We don’t want to add gimmicks like some Facebook game to keep you engaged, but rather the support features you want. So, we’re looking in the immediate short term to add player badges to reward you for achievements while playing. Item drops that occur after playing with different rarity sets based on your performance. Crafting of item drops into real items like exclusive Armor Sets. A Reward page after each game showing your level up progress as well as any drops/rewards you achieved from playing. And finally a new play/lobby area that uses the new lobby system from Teams to allow you to easily find players to play with, for forming groups, and just for playing together in general.

Moving ahead slightly more in the future we plan on attacking the New Player Experience so that by the time a new player plays their first pub match they have all the skills they need to be competitive. We’ll also be adding character slots so you can customize multiple characters, and a new timed Guild vs Boss mode that guilds can play together. And don’t forget that with Teams comes seasons with the first season starting shortly after release.

Thank you to all of you for coming up with many of the ideas listed here. Very exciting times ahead for FORGE!

Anyone guess what her animal companion is?

By wearing these helms, you are proclaiming your allegiance to the gods you wish to free from The Forge. They not only provide the wearer with the confidence that comes from mimicking the warrior of the gods, the paint holds the core of the gods strength within it. You hold the strength of the gods as you continue to fight for their freedom. They are also good for intimidating any enemies that may cross your path.

Purchase this Helm in the FORGE Store before the sale ends!

This weeks sale is on one of our top selling Armor Sets.

It is said that there was once a rainbow bridge that connected Mitgarde to Astgarte, the dwelling of the gods. When The Devourer swallowed the gods, that rainbow bridge crumpled, the colors separating and falling towards the earth like brightly colored crumbs. These pieces were discovered by the Vaklyndr at night when they lit up the ground where they lay. Each class has taken a different color and forged it into their armor, wearing what once connected us to the gods for protection and strength in their fight to free their gods.

Purchase this Armor Set in the Forge Store before the sale ends!
