Unfortunately, being at Legendary, these cards won’t have much impact on the upcoming Rise of the Forgeborn draft environment. Therefore, Kit, Noetherian, and Foxhull are excited to bring you today, a trio of upcoming Rare and Heroic cards that we believe will change the way you think about drafting Uterra. What new strategies might be available when drafting Uterra in Set 2? Find out in today’s exclusive video preview.
With draft and Uterra on our minds, Kit, Noetherian and Fox collaborate on a Set 1 draft where we assemble a very interesting mostly-Uterra deck. At the end end of the draft video, and at the end of each of the three gameplay videos, we provide exclusive previews of upcoming Rise of the Forgeborn content.
Obviously, Forge Watch isn’t the only site bringing you exclusive previews this week. Follow @Forgewatch on Twitter for tweets and re-tweets of SolForge spoilers that we find elsewhere on the Internet.

Hello everyone! SeomanReborn here with a preview extravaganza version of the SolForge Report. This week, we got a Chrogias-load of preview cards and an update about the upcoming Patch. Kibler talked about Daily Reward changes and reminded users about StoneBlade’s policy on third party programs. Let’s get on with the Report
The Patch is ready to submit to Apple. They plan on submitting it in the next few days then it is all in Apple’s court. The expectation is to have it in our hands before Holiday break.
You won’t always get a Tournament Ticket as one of your daily rewards, but Kibler was unclear about how many you should average in a week.
You will be able to purchase Draft Tickets with a “quite high” amount of Silver.
Drafts will cost 7 tickets and Constructed Tournaments will cost 3 tickets.
Constructed Tournaments will have tickets as rewards for winning.
There will be no distinction between Gold or Silver tickets in the client. Because of this, if any part of a Draft or Constructed Tournament is paid with Gold tickets then all cards earned will be marked as Gold for purpose of trading.
Kibler announced that the “3rd win of the day” daily reward will be going away, and in its place will be a reward for a 3rd win against an Online Opponent and a 5th win against an Online Opponent. They plan on going to a “Silver per win” system but they do not have the UI system in place to implement this method.
This last week saw a huge influx of preview cards. Here are all the cards in order of release:
SeomanReborn’s Featured Streamer Preview
Note that when the card was shown on Facebook, the card name was changed, indicating a typo on the initial preview.
All of these previews, except for the latest stream preview, are reviewed by the Forge Watch crew on the latest Player Level 4 Podcast. Check it out to hear our thoughts about all of these spoilers! Also, Kibler spoiled that the SolForge SubReddit will be showing off their preview card sometime this week.
The official SolForge FAQ is up on the website. Make sure to check it out here.
There will be more information about Leaderboards and the Tournament scene coming out next year.
On Facebook, Thundersaur’s rarity was confirmed as Legendary.

May 2, 2013 Comments Off on The Bracket #6: The Future of SolForge Organized Play
In the land of SolForge Forum games, there are basically five ongoing or recurring organized play events: The Community Tournaments (organized by Racecar0), King of the Hill (or KotH, organized by SkyAnemone), Limited Events (organized by Cerebral Paladin), Ranked Play (organized by grim2103), and the Alternate League (organized by EldrosKandar). Ranked Play and KotH both seem stable for now. Ranked Play matches will likely continue in this form as long as forum games are on-going; eventually, hopefully, Stoneblade Entertainment (SBE) will implement some kind of ranked system and take over ladder management. As for KotH, again I expect this event to continue in basically its current form for as long as there are forum games; once we have a client with online multiplayer, Sky (or someone else) will likely start up a new KotH list, if there is sufficient interest.
The future of the other three events, however, is not quite as clear. So, I asked the creators of each of these three events what they had in mind, both in the short-term and in the long-term. Read More »
