We've been hard at work the last couple of months, and not just on the updated client. In addition to some video of that new client in action, we wanted to let everyone know about the big update that's going to affect them this week. Our team has finished a complete rebalance of all the existing SolForge cards, and you'll be able to play with them starting this Wednesday!
It’s happening this week! The SolForge card pool is going through some huge changes and you will be able to pay with the newly rebalanced cards this Wednesday!
After countless hours of testing and fine tuning, we couldn’t be more excited for you to have a chance to play with the new cards and let us know what you think. This article written by our lead developer, Gary Arant explains what’s changed and why.
This update will require a few hours of server downtime to implement, but then you'll see your favorite Forgeborn as you've never seen them before. Don’t forget to visit the forums to talk about it—we’ll be reading.
Server Downtime Schedule
10:00am - Soft downtime
11:00am - Hard Downtime (everyone off)
1:00 pm - Servers Back on complete with New Rebalanced Cards
(All Times listed are in PST)
The Rebalance is just the first of many updates coming to you guys this holiday season.
The new UI is still being worked on by our amazing friends at Free Range Games. There are cool screens, better animations and smoother interactions! Here's some video footage of the progress we've made:
Don’t forget, this isn’t finished yet! It’s coming along nicely, but we’re still working hard on polish and graphics. Feedback, as always, is welcome!
While we are on the topic of Free Range Games, we just wanted to remind you guys that there is just over a day left on the Kickstarter for their new game, Labyrinth!
Labyrinth is an amazing card game twist on a Dungeon Crawling Collectible Card Game! Collect cards to create raiding parties and try and make your way through other players dungeons. Make your own Dungeon so deep and so terrifying that even your bravest friends won't want to try to take your loot! It combines awesome elements of CCGs and RPGs.
We already announced that any Stone Blade fan who follows this link from this update and enters the code STONEBLADE at the end of the campaign will get 5 free Labyrinth packs regardless of pledge tier!
We are so into this game that we wanted to actually throw in another bonus for anybody who want to try it out! Anyone who pledges $25 or more to the Kickstarter will get a special SolForge bonus! In addition to things listed you will also receive A Free Draft and A Free Legendary Chest to your SolForge Account (Kind of like you already raided your first dungeon)!
You can get in on all the action and freebies here!
SolForge: The Artbook, is still in progress and made to reflect the new client and the look that the
game will have moving forward. There will be more on this following that release. In the meantime, we have some artwork spoilers for you.
A Release of Brand New Cards will follow the release of the new client as well, but we wanted to show off some of the art we've been working on for that release, which you can see below:
Thanks again to all of you for being so supportive and dedicated to this great game and the community we're building. Happy Forgegiving!
