Magic: Area updates its battle/season move system after backlash
As you’ll have heard, Wizards of the Coast launched a “season/battle move” idea into Magic: Area, and in an unprecedented transfer, locked every day XP beneficial properties. It was bizarre for quite a few causes: you pay for the move solely to get locked out, and gamers who could not play each single day misplaced out on a ton of XP. The system is altering a bit to unravel a minimum of half of the above points.
As of this week, the battle move system (known as mastery) is being reverted again to the 15 weekly win reward format. Inside the course of 1 week every win will internet you 250XP, so that you needn’t log in every day to progress. In consequence every day wins do not give XP anymore, and quests will give a lowered quantity of XP (500), however the compromise is that extra weekly XP is doled out total, and is now extra accessible: all the modifications could be seen beneath.
I am largely glad with this, however even after exhausting all of your quests and the 15 wins per week, it feels bizarre to have a premium move that prices actual cash the place you may’t grind for XP. Nonetheless, I am going to reside with it. You’ll be able to see how vastly improved the expertise is for once-a-week gamers, as they’ll now attain degree 67 of the move (of 100) with out codes, in comparison with the earlier system limiting them to 32.
Future potential adjustments embrace the elimination of shopping for ranges (a standard theme for battle passes) in an “in your face method” (it would come again in a much less apparent portion of the UI), and extra “catch up” mechanics may very well be carried out within the subsequent mastery move. Wizards additionally contends that 15 ranges of XP this season will probably be granted by way of occasions and codes.
Codes you say? Nicely it is a good time for these. You’ll be able to seize a free Chandra Planeswalker deck right here, and up to date codes embrace “BroughtBack,” “PlayM20,” and “LevelUp.” You’ll find Planeswalker-specific codes right here.
