Exciting news: with the next release (targeting early August) Magic Spellslingers will be ripping off the Early Access label and going to v1.0! With this update we will be going worldwide* on PC and Mobile. Soon you will be able to battle players across the globe on iOS, Android, and PC. We will also be ramping up new content: Vivien is joining the fight, and more new content will be just around the corner in the months to come—including even more Spellslingers and a new card set!
With the end of Early Access we are also resetting accounts to get everything ready. I'm sure you're curious what that means for you, our loyal Early Access players.
v1.0 Changes F.A.Q.
Hold up, didn't you say there was not going to be a reset?
In 2019 we did say that there were no plans for a reset at that time. One global pandemic later, our plans were disrupted and had to change drastically. Early Access lasted for much longer than we originally intended and we didn't expect so many players would reach Mythic rank, player level 50, and complete collections before the worldwide release. We want everyone to start from a more level playing field in v1.0 and believe this reset more closely matches how far Early Access players would have progressed (once you take the rewards below into account). While this is a drastic change, having everyone on a level playing field to start will be best for the game moving forward.
I've been playing for 3 years! I get nothing!?
We absolutely want to reward the effort you've put in, so all Early Access players will receive the following:
Epic purple display names in battles, so everyone knows you're among those who helped us get here.
- 1 free Booster for each player level achieved in Early Access. (For many of you this means 50 free packs!)
- 1,000 Gilded Lotuses.
- A one-week head start. The update releases to current regions one week before going worldwide; this will give Early Access players a head start over the rest of the world.
In v1.0 we will be introducing dupe protection for each rarity in packs. If you already own the maximum number of a given card, you won't receive duplicates of that card in booster packs until you've collected all cards of the same rarity. Those free Boosters should help quickly rebuild your collection!
What about the money I spent?
If you made any cash purchases, everything you bought will be re-granted to you.
For example, if you bought the $5 starter bundle that granted you 5 packs, 500 gems, and 1,000 gold you will get 5 packs, 500 gems, and 1,000 gold when you log in to v1.0 for the first time.
The packs won't necessarily contain the same cards as they did the first time you opened them.
My Player Level? My Rank?
All players will be reset to Level 1. Everyone will be eligible to re-earn the gem rewards for leveling up.
All ranks will be reset to Bronze league (200 trophy points) and all league chests will be reset.
What about Unlocked Spellslingers?
Rosters will be reset and Influence will be set to level 2. All players will have Chandra in their roster and 1 free key to select a second Spellslinger of their choice. Influence can be earned as normal, awarding keys that can be used to unlock additional Spellslingers, including Vivien.
And My Decks?
Decks will also be reset. However, you can save your deck codes offline in a text file and import them again once you've unlocked the appropriate Spellslinger.
What about my Team?
We want you to remain connected to the friends you've made playing Spellslingers, so Teams will remain intact and should see no changes. Donation requests, however, will be reset.
It's been a long journey and we are extremely grateful to everyone in the Spellslingers community for your steadfast support of our game. Thank you and we will see you in the arena!
