SolForge Report 12-20-2013

Hey everyone! SeomanReborn here with a Draft-saturated version of the SolForge Report. This week the update we have been hyping for weeks was finally released and we now have access to Tournaments and Drafting. We finally get to see what the Tempys Legendary card is and Kibler talked to us about where SolForge is going from here. Let’s get on with the Report!

The Patch

At around 8:45 PDT on Wednesday, Dec. 19, the latest patch hit Steam and the iPad/iPhone versions were available shortly after. If this is your first time on the SolForge Report, here is a list of all the things that were added or changed

  • Draft and Constructed Tournament queues were added. For more information, make sure you check out the Tournament section on the website!
  • Event Tickets, which are used to enter Drafts and Constructed Tournaments, are now available with Gold, Silver, Tournament Prizes, and Daily Rewards
  • There were 24 new cards added to the game. These were added to the main card pool and there are new packs you can buy that will have a chance of containing these. (As a side note, if you had old packs, you will find them using the Inventory button near your Silver total)
  • The iPhone version of SolForge was released with all the current features enabled.
  • Many cards have been updated or changed. Check out the Full Patch Notes to read all the specifics changes.
  • There were many changes and improvements to the UI.

If you want to read all of the changes just use the Spoiler button below.

Full Patch Notes SelectShow

There are several undocumented changes that came with the patch. Artwork changes to Botaminate and Avalanche Invoker were slipped in with no mention anywhere. If you find something not in the official patch notes, let us know!

What’s Next?

Here is what StoneBlade has said they are working on for the next update:

  • Crafting – Kibler stated on the stream that there has already been a bunch of work done on this and we should be hearing more details relatively soon.
  • Chatting/Interacting with your Opponent – They added a Chat button on the PC client version to help people communicate more but they do want ways of interacting with your opponent. There are currently no details on this yet.
  • Single Card Purchases/Website Update – These are tied together and they are currently working on this. Kibler said they think this will be done before the next major update.
  • Leaderboard/Competitive Play – This is something that Kibler said we should be hearing about in the near future.

Silver Cost for Drafting

Originally, there was never an indication that you would be allowed to purchase Tournament Tickets for Constructed or Tournament Play. As a surprise, StoneBlade added the ability to purchase tickets for the cost of 40K Silver. Many people thought this was very steep and Kibler responded to such a thread on the official forums. Here is what he had to say:

Kibler Quote from the Forums SelectShow

Many people are trying to gather data about the averages for the different rewards. I would head to the official forums and Reddit to report your findings and help us make better informed feedback.

The Tempys Legendary was shrouded in mystery leading up to the patch. Tempys needed another aggressive creature and it looks like this is it. And, before you ask, he can attack more than twice if you cast multiple spells in one turn. This makes him good in combo decks involving the recently changed Lightning Brand. This is a card I am hoping to get soon and I hope you are as excited as I am about it!

Want to see a full card spoiler? We recently posted a complete card list with pictures here.

Misc.

  • There will be  some sort of Holiday Promotion for SolForge but currently there are no details. Stayed tuned to all the SolForge news channels of communication so you don’t miss it!
  • The official SolForge FAQ was updated with the patch and now contains information about Tournaments as well. If you have questions about SolForge I would suggest reading it first.

SolForge Report 11-13-2013

Hey everyone! SeomanReborn here with this week’s edition of the SolForge Report. This week StoneBlade issued a summary of the changes in the upcoming Tournament Update. Kibler talks a little bit about the design of the new cards and we also get a look at one of them. We still have  no word about when the patch will be out, but the signs seem to indicate it is just a few weeks away. Let’s get on with the Report!

StoneBlade Update

StoneBlade released an official press release about the upcoming patch. In it, StoneBlade gave their official summary of Drafting and Tournaments. They also talked about the release of the iPhone client as well as the new cards and card changes. Most of it was a recap of things we had previously learned, but if you want to read it you can find it on their website.

Card Preview

Part of the update StoneBlade provided also has a new card spoiler. Check him out!

Thundersaur
We are not sure what rarity he is but his effect feels Legendary. This card has very interesting flavor and design, which means I’m looking forward to collecting him!

Card Changes

We also got another card change this week.


Changes: It now has better stats (Previously 4/8/12 Health), and its ability is an Activate which only lasts the turn with higher Attack debuff values (Previously was -1/-2/-4).

There was a subtle change in the rarity of certain cards in the stream last week that I had missed.  Cull the Weak and Corpse Crawler were both demoted to Common during his draft. I’m not sure what this means for the rarity distribution of the set, but it could work out better for people still trying to collect certain cards.

Misc.

  • Kibler stated that cards are going to be added directly to the current card pool. The packs will be different than the current ones so any that you have stored up will not contain them. He mentioned there will be other ways to obtain them as well, possibly alluding to the statement that they would be part of the tournament rewards a few weeks ago. There will be no packs for just the new cards.
  • The initial algorithm in determining which cards will be taken out more often by the computer during drafts will be based on what the developers drafted during playtesting. After that, the program will base it on player behavior.
  • There were no spoilers on the stream this week, but Kibler stated that the new cards are designed around synergies to make them interesting to play together.
