Duelyst Tournament Update

Hey Duelyst Fans,

It's time for a tournament update! Last week we announced that we were partnering up with the fine folks at Battlefy to be our exclusive platform for competitive play.

Let's take a moment to discuss what that means for Duelyst.

Creating Tournaments

Are you an aspiring tournament organizer with a really cool tournament idea? Do you have an idea for an event that would get your fellow players pumped to play? Or simply have no clue how to start and host your own tournament?

Don't fret, our partners at Battlefy have hooked you up with a super user-friendly submission form, tailored just for Duelyst!

Visit their Create-A-Tournament page and follow the steps to completion to create your event. If you still have questions, they also have a helpful guide to set up your event with free community prizing.

"Did they just say free prizing?"

That's correct! Any events that are approved by Battlefy will be supported with official Duelyst prizing. We have a ton of prizes ready to be given out, all you have to do is make a tournament event!

Participating in Tournaments

What about the other side of the coin, playing in tournaments?

We're happy to announce that we'll be supporting two different veins of tournaments, Hardcore and Casual.


Casual tournaments are aimed towards newer players and fun formats. These events are restricted to players ranked Gold and below to ensure that you have a fun time playing with your peers. 

Whether you're an aspiring top-tier tournament player or a newcomer looking to make a few friends, this is your avenue to grow! As shown above, the rewards here are focused on Orbs to help expand that collection while you refine your skills to take on the best of the best.


Hardcore tournaments are your traditional competitive events aimed to show off the best Duelyst has to offer. Anyone is welcome to join, but newcomers beware, this is where Diamond and S-Ranked players come to test their mettle.

There are various rewards based on the tier of the tournament being played, all of them containing cosmetic rewards. We know that the players who join these tournaments already have their best decks assembled and their skills and strategies fine-tuned, the only thing left to earn is the cool cosmetics and most importantly, the recognition of being the best!

All that's left for you is to find a tournament, so check out the approved Community Tournament Listing!

Trials of Mythron Launch Tournament

In addition to community tournaments, we'll be hosting an Official Duelyst tournament with Battlefy (more information on the site).

Practice your matches and clean up your decks, this open event will feature different prizes such as tournament skins, keychains, and plushies.

We're super excited about this opportunity and can't wait to see our competitive scene grow and flourish - so join a tournament today!

Hotfix for Patch 1.95

Hey Duelyst fans
We have a hotfix for some of the bugs you guys reported last week.

Our first priority was to fix an issue where Trial progress would reset after canceling a multi-click event. With this hotfix, this issue has been fixed!
Since Trials are a keystone to our latest expansion, we wanted to deliver this hotfix as soon as possible while we continue to monitor and address other issues.

While we were looking at other bug reports, we also made some changes to how the system looks at card values.
Cards such as Auroara and Grand Strategos will now proc off of a minions BASE attack value (so Zealed Silverguard Knights and Decorated Enlistees will now count!)

As part of these adjustments, we're also increasing the Trial count for Grand Strategos from "Summon 10" to "Summon 12 minions with 1 or less Attack."

Once again, this hotfix was aimed to quickly address the Trials bug so everyone could get back to playing. We still have more on our list and appreciate everyone's support and patience.

Items still on our list to address:
  • Chain of events causing trial progress
  • Unleash the Evil causing bugged properties
  • Primal Ballast incorrectly progressing the Magmar Trial
  • Prongbok movement issues
  • Pandatentiary causing errors
