Upcoming Patch Changes

Card Changes

Coming Soon

All this stuff is a work in-progress and might not end up going live in this state.

Ranked Play

Ranked Play is being worked on, here’s a screenshot of how it looks when you unlock it:


New Leveling System

A new leveling system will be added. You will now get experience even if you lose. When you reach a new level you are rewarded, and you will get a reward for every level you get. It will be cards, resources, kegs, etc.



You can filter your leaderboard by region and with friends. Whenever you reach a new rank you will get a reward: cards, resources, or kegs. When the season ends you will get a reward based on your highest rank achieved during the season.


Premium Cards

More premium cards are on the way for IorvethDeploy: Damage an Enemy by 7. If it was Destroyed, Boost all Elves in your Hand by 1.Vernon RocheDeploy: Damage an Enemy by 3. If it was Destroyed, Spawn a Blue Stripes Commando on a random row and repeat the Deploy ability (one time only)., Birna BranVeteran 1. Deploy: Apply a Skellige Storm Hazard to the opposite row., CaretakerDeploy: Resurrect a Bronze or Silver Unit from your opponent's Graveyard., and Ragh Nar RoogApply a Ragh Nar Roog Hazard to all opposing rows. Ragh Nar Roog Hazard: Every turn, at the start of your turn, Damage the Highest Unit on the row by 2..

New Cards


Geralt: Aard – When you play Geralt: Aard you can choose a row on your opponent’s side, and it will move all of the units to the higher row, and deal 1 damage to all of the units moved.


Kayran – It consumes three of your non-gold cards and inherits their power.


Coral – You select a row on your side of the board, and it will move all of your units to the row that Coral was played on.


Schirru – New ambush card. It’s played face down, it’s triggered when a special card is played and changes it to a ScorchDestroy all the Highest Units.. It might play another Scorch after that, but it’s unclear.


Dimeritium Shackle – It removes all of the current effects on a card and if the card is promoted to Gold it will remove this status. If you play it on a standard Gold card it will remove the Gold status.

General Questions

Will there be player icons (avatars)?

They will come in the future.

Can you use a Medic card on a Relentless card?


Will the patch be released in a similar time frame on both platforms?


How can you obtain Premium cards?

In Kegs!

Will there be any Neutral Medic Revive cards?

They don’t think so, they want to avoid that.

    Hey, not only did my question (will Xboners have to wait longer for the patch than PCers) get answered on stream, but it made the recap as well! I feel like the belle of the ball. XD

    Thanks for summarizing this. I watched the stream, but I had a hard time keeping up with all the changes announced.
