Since the release of Heart of Nightmares, we've been hard at work on the next features that will be implemented into Duel of Champions. We would like to share a preview of the upcoming changes that you can expect to see in game soon.
---Live around June 11th
---Daily Quest overhaul
It will now be possible to forfeit your Daily Quests in order to obtain new ones. This feature will only be available for quests acquired during a previous day. Freshly assigned Daily Quests will not be forfeitable. As such, chain-forfeiting will not be possible.
The general look and feel of the Daily Quests widget will be slightly modified to accommodate the changes.Campaign flow & Achievements
In order to help new players understand the game better and to give them a taste of PvP matches, progressing through the Campaign will now require players to unlock two Achievements:
- Completing ‘Introduce Yourself’ (Play one ranked duel) will unlock the Windswords campaign’s second mission.
- Completing ‘Let’s Get Started!’ (Win five ranked duels) will unlock the Void Rising campaign.
---Live end of JuneAll features listed below are still a work in progress and are still subject to change. We will release more details as they are finalized.
It will soon be possible to play DoC without affecting your rank on the Leaderboard. When wanting to play an unranked duel, all you will have to do is check a box before clicking ‘Play’. Playing Unranked duels will still allow you to gain Rewards and to complete your Daily Quests. As such, you will not need to worry about losing Champion Points in order to complete a Quest. This feature will be ideal for theorycrafting and testing new decks.
There will not be a separate queue for Unranked play. Players that decide to play either Ranked or Unranked will be matched against each other.Refer a Friend
Soon you will be able invite your friends to play DoC through an integrated referral system. Referred players will start their game experience with additional cards.
Additionally, you will earn bonus rewards for bringing new players to the game! Any time a player you refer completes a duel or purchases Seals, you will earn extra currency for free. You could potentially even receive Wildcards or Tournament Tickets if your referred player accomplishes certain tasks. More details to come on this soon.Spectator Mode Beta
The all new in-game spectator mode will allow you to watch ongoing games that your Friends are participating in. You will also be able to watch other matches during Swiss Tournaments while you wait in the lobby. While using Spectator Mode, both players’ hands are hidden from the watcher.
We can’t wait to bring these changes to the game and hope to see you on the Battleground soon. Again, thanks for your feedback and for the suggestions you share with us each day!
