Ubisoft Digital Days 2013: Might & Magic – Duel of Champions

At the Ubisoft Digital Days event, we leaped at the chance to take a look at Might & Magic: Duel of Champions, the online Trading Card Game (TCG) from Ubisoft. It's essentially an online version of the physical TCG Might & Magic; players build their card decks with monster units, actions, spells and more to setup their own strategies and then fight against other players and try to destroy their heroes.

Being promoted at the event was the soon to be released expansion "Forgotten Wars", which will introduce the new Academy faction, 148 new cards, new heroes, new creatures for current factions, new fortune cards, spells, events, etc. It’s a huge expansion due to be coming out in the coming weeks.

With this expansion the developers have tried to slightly change the mechanics to have more drawn out games for currently rush tactics seem to be the way to go, giving a disadvantage to those who want to take a higher risk for higher rewards where it takes a few turns to lay down the big boss cards that are hard to place, but do a lot of damage if you manage it.

Another big feature players have been crying for is trading between players. However, this isn’t something the company are willing to put in as it would pretty much make their "booster pack" shop purchase moot plus players could make tons of free accounts and trade over the cards they acquire.

Instead, they have made it easier for players to acquire particular cards they might be looking for for their deck with the "Altar of Wishes" system. From the booster packs, where you get random cards, there’s also a chance for players to obtain a Wild Card (some more expensive boosters packs guarantee a Wild Card). Players can use these Wild Cards to buy the cards they want from the list of ALL the available cards in the game (over 600), each one costing a number of Wild Cards.

The expansion has no set release date, but is scheduled to be coming out in the next few weeks.
