Dear Champions,

The Might & Magic: Duel of Champions Development Team is proud to release the Five Towers, an exciting new expansion with cards, features, and fixes!

"The Five Towers
- 80 new cards, including creatures, spells, fortunes, events, and buildings."

"Buildings, a new card type!
- Add them to your deck as you would creatures, spells, and fortunes.
- Play buildings from your hand onto any battleground position you control.
- Deploy or move creatures onto buildings to give them new abilities and buffs.
- 11 building cards introduced with Five Towers."

"Melee-Shooter, a new creature type!
- Melee Shooter creatures can be deployed onto any battleground position you control, like flyer creatures.
- They are affected by any ability that affects any melee or shooter creature."

"Using Cards in Multiple Decks!
- You will now be able to use any card you own in every deck you create.
- E.g. If you have 1 Dark Assassin then you can use 1 Dark Assassin in every deck. If you have 4 Dark Assassins then you can use 4 Dark Assassins in every deck.
- For server stability reasons, you will be limited to owning 30 decks at a time, however, any additional decks you have already created before this release will not be deleted."

"New User Experience
- Players who log into the game for the first time will enter a new tutorial flow.
- When choosing a Starter Deck, you will now have the opportunity to try it beforehand.
- All new Starter Decks for Haven, Inferno, Necropolis, and Stronghold."

"Store Updates:
- New Five Towers packs with chances to get Building cards.
- Five Towers Box for a better deal on the new series.
- New Emilio's pack that includes the Five Towers series.
- Weekly deals in the shop! Check back often."

"Card Balance Updates:
- Mana Storm: Instead of paying 1 extra resource when you play a spell, you pay 1 more resource after playing a spell, and if you cannot then your Hero will receive 1 damage.
- Week of Taxes: Instead of paying 1 extra resource when you play a fortune, you pay 1 more resource after playing a fortune, and if you cannot then your Hero will receive 1 damage.
- Crusader Treasurer: Might requirement increased from 3 to 4.
- Might of Nature: Only affects melee creatures in the front line."

"New Creature Abilities:
- Water Heal: When water damage is dealt to this creature, heal it by the same amount instead."

"Bug Fixes:
- Supremacy Achievement: Can be unlocked even if you leave the Swiss Tournament lobby before the tournament has ended.
- Pimped Out Deck Achievement: Fixed.
- Crushing Victory Achievement: Description now specifies that it can only be unlocked in a ranked duel.
- Annihilation Achievement: Description now specifies that it can only be unlocked in a ranked duel.
- Evade: If creature evades into a position that is hit by blast damage, it will receive the blast damage.
- Cyclone: Fixed bug where creatures could attack if the spell had been played using a Speal Steal or Altar of Wishes
- Fixed several ongoing spells that did not work after being stolen and played by the Spellstealer Wizard.
- Volunteers: Fixed some bugs where creatures deployed using Volunteers did not receive buffs from certain events and ongoing effects.
- Fate Sealer: Fixed bug where too many cards were drawn when more than one Fate Sealer was destroyed at the same time."

Dear players,

With the Five Towers Expansion, the Wildcards and Altar of Wishes features were rebalanced. This was intentional from the economic design team but, for various reasons, the information didn’t make its way to the players as it should have.

We are very sorry that the lack of transparency from our part has led you guys to feel cheated. As a token of goodwill and respect for our players, the decision has been made to launch a special promotion very soon.
Stay tuned for more details, and please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
