Backer Only Tournament Round 2 Pairings

Hello KickStarter Tournament Competitors, Pairing for round 2 of the tournament are now available in the links on the bottom of this post. This will be the primary place for the posting of pairings moving forward since it seemed like everyone sees these easier. 

For round two we will be using Ascension: Storm of Souls and Ascension: Immortal Heroes. Please send a challenge to your opponent using those two sets and set the game clock to 3 days and the honor at 60. It doesn't matter which player issues the challenge so if your opponent beats you to it you can just start the match.

Now for reporting the results, this responsibility will fall on the winner of each round. You must take a screenshot of the results page and send it to support@stoneblade.com. You should receive an automated message from us when you submit your results that confirms our receiving the message, if you do not get that then please resubmit. We will also respond to you letting you know that your results have been recorded. Also to please include the winners username and final score in the text of this email so that we can record them faster. This screenshot is important to settle any disputes that may arise. If your opponent does not accept your challenge by the end of Wednesday reach out to us and we will contact the other player directly. Pairing will be released at 12:00pm each Tuesday and results must be in no later than 12:00am PST each following Monday.

That should cover everything but as always if you have any questions contact Support@stoneblade.com and we will help clear everything up.

These are the round 2 pairings!!  

You should find your username and your opponent on one of these two brackets.

Registration extended for backers only tournament

Hello Ascension fans, this will be a very, very quick update and only affects the Backer Only Tournament.
 

Since we are still getting late entries trickling in and don’t want to leave anybody out, we’ve decided to extend the registration period so that we can give as many people as possible an opportunity to register. We will be taking registrations until 12:00 PM PST (Noon) on Friday, January 29th. After that, registration will be closed. To register send your Ascension app username and email address to support@stoneblade.com. If you have already registered, you don’t need to do anything.

This will push the tournament start date back a week, so the first pairings will be sent out on February 2nd. Rounds will start on Tuesdays and each round will have to be completed and reported by 12PM PST of the following Mondays.

Pairings will be sent out to everyone on Tuesdays and each round will have to be completed and reported by 12PM PST of the following Monday. Each week when we release the pairings we will also release which set or sets are to be used in that round. Also instructions reporting your results will be included every week with the pairings.

IT’S ON A BOAT!! Production of all the boxes has been completed and it is on it’s way to our warehouse. As soon as it hits our warehouse floor we will start assembling all of them and get them ready for shipping. Due to the expensive and limited nature of this item we will be asking everyone to confirm their addresses just before shipping. That will most likely be in our next update and should come in February so please keep an eye out for that because we will not ship your out until you have confirmed your address with us at that time.

That’s all for now, as always thank you so much for your patience and support.

Digital Expansion, Upcoming Backer Tournament & More!

Hello Ascension fans, it’s update time! We have a lot of new exciting things in store for you!

The latest Ascension set, Dreamscape, is finally in stores!

Dreamscape introduces Dream Cards, which for the first time will allow players access to new and powerful cards that other players won’t know about, until you decide the time is right! It’s a really fun set to play and introduces new mechanics like no set before it.

For more information on the set, check out John Fiorillo’s preview article here.

The Kickstarter Promo and Expansion are finally here and we are excited to reveal the core mechanic to you now! Available today, all backers can download the new update and get access to the expansion (called Promo Pack 5) in app now!  Portals have begun to open up all over Vigil, allowing heroes from the past, present and future planes to fight for honor!

Scattered throughout the center deck are portal cards.

Whenever you acquire a portal, it transforms into a card from any Ascension set (even if you aren’t playing with that expansion in the current game). The card you get will always be at least the cost of the portal and usually comes at a discount from the original cost. You never know who (or what) will step through the portal!

Along with these portals are a bunch of unique cards that interact with them, some of which can only be done digitally. Due to fact that all of the cards that were designed specifically with abilities we could never do on paper, it will never be made for the physical Ascension game. So the only way to play with it will be online.

One card in particular was designed for you guys as an homage to the kickstarter process:

This construct will (eventually) transform into a cool high cost mechana card. Unfortunately you don't know exactly what you are going to get or when you are going to get it, but it will be totally awesome when it gets there! This is a very fun card to play with and we hope everyone agrees that the awesomeness has been worth the wait.

As of today, the expansion is available to all backers.  We hope you enjoy it!

We have a small update on the Kickstarter Exclusive Collector’s Edition. Everything is going well. Production of the box is almost complete and it’s scheduled to arrive at our warehouse in late January. We will then assemble it and ship out, That means that it should be on your doorsteps in late February. Obviously, the timeline is depending on shipping and other factors that are out of our control, but we are getting closer and closer to delivering on this promise. We will update you when the boxes arrive in our warehouse with more concrete timelines. We will also be sending out a follow up backer survey to ensure we still have your correct address before shipping.

The backer only Ascension Online tournament is coming soon! Because there are so many of you in so many time zones, we will be running this tournament asynchronously! Each round, players will have a week to complete their match before moving on to the next round. All rounds will consist of one game matches between two players.

Each round will feature different sets of Ascension. The best finishers after the swiss rounds will move on to a single elimination bracket, but watch out! Stone Blade Employees will be in the queue as well, so don’t expect the competition to be easy (unless you get paired against Josh the intern).
