Dear Heroes,

A new version of the game will be released on Thursday, July 26th. Check out the details below and feel free to comment :)!

• Solo campaign
The player, his hero and units are hired as mercenaries by the Wolves Duchy to defend the empire against an odd Orcs invasion. This contract will lead the adventurers to an epic journey where they will fight against many different factions, meet several characters and learn the new philosophy of the nothingness (also called Void). The solo campaign will help you evolve as a player by adapting your game to the numerous factions you will face. Moreover the campaign will allow you to win rewards and will immerse you deeply into the Might & Magic universe!

• Complete tutorial
A new tutorial, more complete, step by step, and clearer.

• Language settings in the News section
The news won’t be written in English anymore, but according to your operating system’s language.

• “Newbie” mode
When this mode is activated, the player encounters a second confirmation message before ending a turn.

• In-game discussion (chat)
Players are now able to discuss with one another during a duel. In order to activate the chat, press the “Enter” button and then type the text you want.

• Corrections and adjustments
Enrage: when an enraged creature attacks, its rage counter goes down to 0.
Several issues related to memory and game crash have been fixed.

Great news!!
Can't wait to check the changes, though Stronghold Nerf seems a bit too strong. ;)

Enrage got nerfed to the ground. I like the idea to reduce counters on it but removing all is a overkill imo.

Consider adding some form of redrawing hand, theres many ways if you dont want to go standard MtG rout.

How many play hours will this campaign guarantee?

It would be nice if new version allowed us to use the same card for multiple decks, more decks, more combinations equals more testing and faster grow up.

Hi sacranin,
In tomorrow's version, the solo will offer 2 hours of gameplay. But it's only a part of the campaign, updates will be made regularly. In the end, the solo campaign will offer 10 hours of gameplay.

What the hell is this? I try to face the orc and there is a pop up message that says opponent is using celebrations, right click to it see cost yadda yadda. I cannot! I can't play a card, I cannot close the pop up window, I cannot even right click celebrations!

EDIT: When the pop up window appears there is a blue arrow but then it disappears and thus I cannot close the window.

Is there a shortcut for closing windows?

I am wondering if it is only me but I can not duel in the new version. Every time I try all I see is the table with no cards and nothing happening. After a minute of waiting I get a message saying that my opponent surrendered.
I can not complete the last mission of tutorial either. I am supposed to right-click Celebrations but I can't.
With duels not working and a limited number of solo missions available the game is hardly playable at the moment.

I quite liked the new tutorial though. It is clear and easy to follow.

Well my problem is I do not have a deck when I try to play the campaign... I can choose the encounter but then I cannot click 'Start Duel' because it is greyed out because I do not have a deck to select for the battle... even though I have 3 decks

Edit: Well I got past that problem... it seemes they'd changed my hero's spells on me so my deck was illegal. Now I'm having that Celebrations problem on the last battle of the first area

If you level up during campaign, you dont get the +10kgold/150seals (or 1150 seals if it was level 5,10,15,20....).

Which means I am scr*wed, I fought long and hard to reach lvl 10 and now my efforts are wasted...

You might want to recheck your decks. Since a good chunk of heroes was changed, they might contain invalid cards - and thus be invalid decks. Happened to me - i had water spells on my orc caster.

So.. Can we hope that the campaign celebration bug, inability to play duels and not gaining 1000 seals every 5th level when gaining xp through the campaign will be fixed within this day or the next?

Hello,
First the dev team has to be aware of the bugs. I will transfer them rightaway, and you can also send a ticket to the support, that helps keep track of bugs and see how bad it is (how many players encountered the bugs, how). Here is the link : http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/ask/rnv/10

Tournaments still not giving out rewards? It says that each duel adds to the jackpot but that value is still 0. It also says "at the end of the week" but it is a daily tournament as far as I can tell.

What agitates me is that there was no preview of the decks before choine when starting... no description on playstyle... nothing.

therefore i chose necro... just to find out it is completely different from my card game play style and i can hardly win games with it to get the money to buy a new deck

Don't be a wuss you are in beta therefore you have the chance to try and find new strategies. Beside that money and medals come quite fast on early levels and soon you can pick the deck of your choice.

Tutorial bug fixed but we can still access only two Campaigns!!!

Did you download the new version?

Maybe I just got lucky but I passed it without problems. On opponents first turn, they played Gold Pile to increase their resources and then immediately activated Celebrations, got the popup "Tip", clicked on it, it went away and I continued playing normally.

Still cant access other Campaigns though, the first two show on the selection screen as completed (blue) but no other Campaigns are available.

Well I just tried two more times and every time the opponent played Gold Pile and then Celebrations (so I suppose thats intended to happen every time) - Im quite sure the problem is somewhere on your side, what version are you on? It can be found by going into the game's folder, patches, and search there for a number.

As it turns out, Chapters(campaigns) 2,3,4 and 5 shouldn't been activated with this patch and those that got to play them by doing campaign without stopping were just lucky :P. I expected it to be case though since at later stages opponents started using Naga and Multi-faction Decks, which is much further than the current testing state of the beta.
Only first 4 events(duels) should be available now, with the other 18 to come in future.

Format of the Campaigns is:
Tutorial - 6 duels
Chapter 1 - 4 duels
Chapter 2 - 4 duels
Chapter 3 - 4 duels
Chapter 4 - 4 duels
Chapter 5 - 6 duels

The campaign bug was fixed, all good now :) It is unfortunate that only the orc missions are available but I can wait.

Only one issue so far, sometimes damage on enemy hero or units does not show. Like captain Gigori(?) whose life showed 20 even as I kept hitting him, same happened with one of his vestals.
