Next week, we’re releasing our second major Scrolls update. This one will affect how you play, earn scrolls, and interact with your fellow players. It’s going to be a biggie, so read on to see what you’re getting on Monday, October 21st. Exciting!
Check my previous post for more information on our newest mode. In-short, you build a deck on the fly and use it in a series of matches against other players online. Then you’re rated, and get to pick a portion of your Judgement deck to permanently add to your collection. The better you do, the more scrolls you get to keep. Judgement mode will initially cost 1000 gold or 150 Shards to enter.
Spectator mode is also arriving next week. You’ll be able to watch every game happening in Scrolls LIVE (as long as the players are cool with it). Just click the button in the Arena and you’ll be presented with the screen above. From there, it’s pretty simple to watch a match.
Don’t worry if you don’t like the idea of people getting insight into your play. It’s easy to disable spectators in the options menu.
Increased Gold gain for lost matches
Over time, we’ve discovered that Scrolls can be a bit hard on new players. For that reason, we’re awarding approximately twice as much gold for multiplayer losses. To compensate for this, win rewards have been reduced by around 10 per cent.
Two multi-resource pre-con decks
We’re adding two new pre-con decks to the store. Like everything in Scrolls, they can be bought with gold or shards. We’ll be discussing these in the next few days.
44 new scrolls!
We’re introducing a whopping 44 new scrolls. The Just for You section of the store will be updated daily for seven days after the update, and will only include scrolls from our latest set (the last 60 scrolls released). That should give all players opportunity to add some new spice to their collections.
That’s it! Thanks for reading. Feel free to chat about the upcoming update with the friendly folks on Scrollsguide.
