Horizons Update

Hey all, for those of you who haven’t had a chance to go to 

http://arena.qa.apocoplay.com/ 

lately, we’ve done a bunch of things. — our big focus has been finishing the single player quest engine, which is almost done (since we need it for stuff like tutorials), but there is still plenty to be seen in the normal arena. Click on someone’s name in the chat to generate a battle link. You’ll see that pretty much all the bugs in the battle have been fixed and a bunch of UI additions and features have been added. 

If anyone not in the battle goes to the battle link, it will act as a battle replay automatically and let you spectate. Neat! And very close to being beta material.

Falkow Core Set with Featured 3 star!

Greetings Iczers,

I am pleased to announce the list of commons for our (in my opinion) trickiest sphere to master, Falkow! I would say that the majority of Falkow’s files and playstyles have the steepest learning curve and can be unforgiving at times. The reason being is that Falkow’s units tend to be some of the frailest in the game and often require other cards to combo with them in order to maximize their effectiveness. Most of Falkow’s cards and mechanics are about manipulating the field and game tempo to your favor, and then striking at the most critical of moments. Their healing and restorative abilities are almost non-existent, instead offering mechanics like the infamous ‘return’. 

The 3 star to be featured this time is “Azure Dragon – East / Vordore”. He is one of the 4 infamous strategists from the Wizard Kingdom, preferring to use tact over brawn, to overtake his opponents. While offering almost no offensive abilities by himself, Vordore can easily turn a rather lackluster field of weenies into Masterful warriors. The larger vordore’s field is, the stronger it becomes-his strategy is power in numbers! His auto skill also forces your opponent to make a difficult choice-either suffer a range penalty, or be forced to play in 2 rows instead of the normal 3. It can be tricky to find the right type and number of units to compliment Vordore-and how to best make use of his range denial/field manipulation. That is for you to decide! This Core pack set will be entering the shop starting tonight at 8:59PM EST and will leave next Wednesday, 7/16 at 11:59PM EST. 

Without further ado, here are the commons in the first Core set for Falkow:
