JULY 4TH WEEKEND OFFICIAL TOURNAMENT
This weekend we’re having a FREE SEALED DECK TOURNAMENT. Sealed deck tournaments use random cards generated by our Tournament arena, so you don’t need any special cards of your own to participate. This is where you can really show your skills on the field of battle!
For those of you who have never been in the Tournament Arena before, it works pretty much like Folrart. Which means, if we open it for the whole weekend and participants just float in and out looking for a game, they’ll have trouble finding opponents. To fix this, we are going to only have the Tournament Arena open for 4 hours on Friday, and then an additional 3 hours on Saturday and 3 hours on Sunday. The times will also be staggered to allow participants in all time zones.
Tournament Type: Star Battle and Win % combo.
Two winners for each prize, one for the top three Stars, one for the top three Win %.
Times: FRIDAY, JULY 2nd 8 PM-12 Midnight EST SATURDAY 1 PM -4 PM EST SATURDAY 11 PM -2 AM SUNDAY EST.
What!? Lupos is back from E3, why should we have to suffer another lame ranking’s post by Logress!? Argh!
Well, some of you may have notice that direct Credit Card processing has been down for over a week. Our credit card company was bought out and thought it would be a great idea to just let all their former clients figure out how to interface with their new system with no notice. And, as things often do, one thing has led to another and Lupos has been doing nothing but try to get it to work for about a week. So, as not to disturb him, I will be your humble host for these rankings. Now, for the entertainment portion of your Monday ranking post I thought I’d tell you the one about the bartender, the nun, and Vile Swordsman / Afel. Or, I could use my old stand by, the Cardassian Neck Trick.
OR… I could just get to the rankings.
Anyone who dueled at least once in a ranked arena (Folrart or Crest) last week gets 10 gran, more if they scored a lot of wins.
1 Demongod (tie)
1 Xideru (tie)
2 Order of the Black Knights
3 The Seraphim Mafia
4 Royal Flush
5 SRX Team
GUILDS THAT LEVELED UP
2 The Seraphim Mafia 3->4
13 Olympians 1->2
GUILDS THAT BECAME OFFICIAL
The 5 of 7 is on! Play at least 5 days of the next 7 for 5 point cards and a chance to win 3 copies of Time Stop or Time Reader / Levande!
Crest and Training arenas are no back up. Everything should be normal now.
Game is up, but Lupos is still working on getting Crest and Training up. So newbies would have to go into Folrart to play right now. I knew this was a good weekend for the “Not in the face, not in the face!” event.
There seems to be an issue with the game servers, we are working on it and should have them up shortly.
Starting Monday, June 28th, we’re going to have a 5 of 7. For all your new players, that means that if you play on 5 different days during that seven day stretch, you get 5 Point Cards and are entered into a drawing for our grand prize. Each of your participating days you must play in either Crest or Folrart, and you must play at least one duel of 10 turns… (although, because people have been having trouble sometimes getting a 10-turn match, Lupos has been tweaking the script so if you get DC’d or quitted on, as long as you go 5 turns you should still be counted fine). But the question everyone is wondering… what holiday could possibly be celebrated during this 5 of 7? Let’s see, there must be some holiday coming up between June 20th and July 4th. What could it be?
Some of you may have noticed EX 6 is still up, even though we were supposed to end it last Friday. You may also know that the credit card system is down. NOTE you can still go to paypal and there should be a button on the left that will let you enter your credit card without making a paypal account for the purchase. If you don’t want to do that, the credit card system should be back up soon. The credit card system has been ‘upgraded’ so it no longer works with our server (awesome), but we should have everything fixed tomorrow. I’m keeping EX 6 up until Friday, so you’ll have a chance to use it if you like.
SET 6 has finally drawn to a close, and it’s time to look back on some of the biggest and baddest players of the age! So this week, instead of just recounting that anyone who has dueled in the ranked arenas at least once has gotten at least ten Gran, we must not forget that everyone who got an RP over 1501 has made our SET 6 RP TOPLIST.

As is our custom when we have a new set, we’ve finally got a Set 7 Preview page up. Better late than never? Well, there is something new here, the nifty new FLASH TRAILER! Also, it’s time to send out our PR release to the world, so here it is:
