View Full Version : Heart of Nightmares: new expansion announcement!

Dear Duelists,

As you already know, our team is currently hard at work to deliver the highly anticipated Base Set 2 update. BS2 will bring about a deeper meta-game along with heaps of new content to Duel of Champions. Additionally, you might have heard that a fifth series of cards is also on the way. Originally, this expansion would have been released shortly after Base Set 2.

After reviewing community feedback, we have reconsidered this stance.

We are proud to announce that Base Set 2 and Series 5 will come out together in one single release this April. The name of this expansion will be HEART OF NIGHTMARES. All the new content promised in B02 will still be featured alongside 100 brand new cards. This will be the biggest release in the history of Duel of Champions.

“Hey Ubi, why did you decide to do this?”

We took your feedback very seriously and thought it would be more interesting to release everything at the same time. This impact of this release will create more possibilities for both casual and competitive players alike. We feel that this is the right thing to do for our entire playerbase... so why wait?

The Heart of Nightmares update will include:


The Heart of Nightmares expansion: 100 new cards adding up to the previously announced Base Set 2 cards list
Lots of new game content, including:


o New game formats
o New achievements
o New solo campaigns and puzzles
o New totally revamped UI
o New rankings and matchmaking system
o Rebalanced cards
o New deckbuilder functionalities


A powerful new game engine



We know you are dying to get more details and we will be providing them as soon as we can. Stay tuned as we will be revealing all to you in the coming weeks. We look forward to your feedback on the upcoming Heart of Nightmares expansion!

- The DoC Team

If you have any questions, join Rosquita and myself during the Team Stream, today at 5pm CET > www.twitch.tv/duelofchampions

If I get it wright, we will get ONE extension of 300+ cards with 200+ BS2 cards AND 100 new cards in it. It means that if I have all the BS2 cards because I am an old player I will get a lot of useless copy of BS2 cards trying getting the new ones? Really??? Why????? Doing 2 sets would be much more consistent with the "Base set" concept.

will the bs2 cards really be in one set with the new ones???

maybe there are more packs in one boxe..but there are a lot 300 bs2 cards..+100 its nightmare..maybe thats why the patch is called so

No, BS2 and HoN will be separate sets of packs. So if you already have all Base Set 2 cards you'll only have to buy packs from the new expansion.

I'm a little sad about this, by the time this is out, there will be maybe 2000 people playing jp at best and that's being optimistic, and I assume that even though you say it will be out in April, I would bet it will be out in may if we are lucky. :(

Alamand

I had a feeling they were going to release them together, pity about the delay though. At least we can hope it'll be early april and not late april.

Just waaait a minuuutee.... Does this mean, that BS2 cards and "new" set cards will share the same booster pack? ThaT in order to acquire new cards I'll have to purchase booster where I risk to find totally useless (since I already have them) bunch of BS2 cards instead of purchasing directly new set?

WHY DO I FEEL LIKE A MILKED COW AGAIN???

Abydosra
03-18-2014, 04:17 PM
Well, I think that it is definitely a good news but maybe they should consider releasing Base Set 2 first and letting those tired of waiting players a glimpse into the new format, at the same time making everyone waiting eagerly for the fifth expansion (as this may create an excitement and suspense that will encourage more gameplay until the next expansion,) rather than delaying everything at once and releasing all of that at the same time at April. This may reduce the player base at the current indefinite waiting period which is already half of the maximum player base available. Just my five cents. Anyways, cheers for the next expansion! ;-)

Nope. I think that they will be in two separate sets, just like VR and Base Set 1.

Stop this right now! They just said that they will be RELEASED at the same time. Not in the same set. Oh my freaking god. Way to spread misinformation guys! Chill

You have:

Base Set 2
Heart of Nightmares


Sold separately!

EDIT: They wouldn't have bothered making an expansion if they just added a 100 cards to the base set 2. It was clearly established that there would be no new cards in base set 2. I don't see the confusion.

Pjovejas
03-18-2014, 04:29 PM
I would be very haby, just that statement is very confusing:

The Heart of Nightmares expansion: 100 new cards adding up to the previously announced Base Set 2

BS is named as "previously anounced" and the whole topic refeers to this as a single expansion

Since it sounds like a "single" expansion with a single name. So I'm naturaly afraid that we won't have "HoN A" pack and "HoN B" pack. As I said, I would appreciate official explanation very much.

Kimundi
03-18-2014, 04:30 PM
No, BS2 and HoN will be separate sets of packs. So if you already have all Base Set 2 cards you'll only have to buy packs from the new expansion.

It doesn't look like so, Kataklysm is an official Ubisoft Employee, our CM/CS coordinator.

So I confirm. BS2 and HoN will be sold in two different packs!

You should consider giving special ranks to all Ubisoft employees, so we know that we are talking to one.


And honestly, why do people always want to think the worst?

Also, when BS2 was announced, there were some here complaining about it not containing new cards.
Simon (Dev) said that they don't want to force players to buy packs with lots of cards they don't need to get the few cards they need.

I wouldn't be surprised if they had BS2 packs as the prize on days when swiss is standard format and HoN packs when it's open format, that way you have a choice which packs you'd rather go for.
Although maybe it'll just be HoN all the time since new players wouldn't want it to be harder for them to get cards from the new set.

Though what I think would be ideal is 1st place gets premium HoN, 2nd place gets regular HoN and 3rd place gets BS2 pack.

Does that mean, that Void Rising will be rotated out at the moment BS2 + HoN is released? I was hoping I would complete my Void Rising collection if WC prices for cards would be lowered (I miss 3 epics and two heroes), but if VR is rotated out, it's achievements will be probably gone as well...

As far as I know, they are going to completely remove BS1 from shop, they will leave just BS2 and new expansion packs(and boxes of course). Everything else from BS1 that is not in BS2 will be purchasable through Altar of Wishes, and that is it.

At least that is what they have said, unless they changed their minds about it.

The reinforcement stuff will always sell the latest base set. As for expansions, they are still thinking about keeping them in the shop, after the uproar of the playerbase.

As someone who has a RL, can you not release until after Spring Break? I'm not spending my Hawaiian vaca on the laptop, and would hate to "fall behind." So sometime after April 14 would be great.

And now for the mocking from those who don't have a RL...

If I understand what you wrote correctly, you are wrong.

The plan they presented to us was to remove BS1 from the shop as soon as BS2 was released. BS1 is only what we now get from reinforcement packs and does not include the expansions (VR, HotV, FW, FT). So the eold expansions would first stay and later rotate out (if an expansion will rotate out always when a new expansion comes was not said).
But afaik they were indeed thinking about keeping the old packs in the shop, so we will see.

Yea, it would definitely be nice to have at least Premium Reinforcement Pack in shop, because they allow plenty of BS1 achievements to be done. I for one would like to make BS1 premium deck for a nice 500 seals reward and show-off. :)

Does anybody know for sure if:
a) will BS1 premium pack still be available in shops for gold and if so, for how long?
b) will all BS1 achievements stay?

Thanks!

I'm sure that those who know it if it's yet decided are not allowed to tell us.

Alamand
03-18-2014, 10:36 PM
I think BS1 packs are a lot more likely to cycle out than expansion packs are, and they already posted a list of BS1 achievements that would be going away after the update in another topic. It's probably still subject to change but I wouldn't be surprised if that's one of the things that doesn't change.

don't expect us to feel sorry for you that you get to take a week off and go to Hawaii. Those of us in the actual real world (where Spring Break is no longer a thing) have no sympathy.

Spring break affects a very small percentage of the population. Ubisoft will receive a considerable boost in marketing by releasing near PAX. Do you think they should forgo that boost just because a subset of college students will feel their “RL” is being disrupted by an inconvenient release date?

Ummm... Let me disabuse you of your assumptions: 1) I wasn't asking you to feel sorry for me, 2) the post was a request to time the release after Spring Break, in the hopes of benefitting many besides myself, and 3) I graduated college 30 years ago, so I am very much in "the actual real world." I am using actual real world vacation time, earned by working actual real world hours.

I think you have misconceptions about what Base Set 1 means. Base Set 1 is just that. Base Set 1.

Base Set 1 isn't = BS1+all expansions up until now.

Serpicuz
03-19-2014, 10:57 AM
I don't like this solution, and I think it's first time in a card game then they release a base set with a new expansion, the whole dekbulding for the base set 2 is useless.

But I hope that is the time to new kind of tourneaments.
Maybe if ubi dosen't want to give a lot of rewards, it will be ok tourneaments with a buy in.

OK... obviously this is not true ;)
We don't actually plan a specific date according to holidays or other factors (or at least, that is not the case here).
We are truly sorry for those who don't get holidays and jealous of those who do. However, players taking time off or not to relax rarely factors into planing a release date. We will release the expansion as soon as we feel it is ready and meets our standards of quality.

Best,

PS: please don't get at people taking holidays, it's their life. I'm sure you'll get holidays too one day!

I think that this was a fairly pointless post. You're going to release this update whenever you feel like it's ready to go. What difference does it make if it's after or before people's holidays? Just enjoy yourselves, guys. You will have time for the new expansion when you're not busy with real life. RL> DoC. Just put things into perspective. Sheesh.

At least I like surprises. So, please, let the player pool discover the new Cards as they get them and present them to each other in the forums. :)


Until now I haven't spent a dime on this game. Just a suggestion: Make a good $100 offer with the new release.

Maybe this questions are not strictly connected to this expansion but here they are :
1. Will there be option to adjust ( easy , normal , challenge ) strength mode for opposing Human and AI matchmaking ?
2. Will there be rewards for playing against AI beside for playing campaign ?
3. Will there be option to change AI fraction to practice with ?
4. Is it possible to make AI play mod ( give your premade deck to AI to practice against it ) ?

Really excited to hear this news! I think its great that the new expansion will be released along BS2 because new cards are more exciting than merely switching up the meta by removing old cards.

Ignore all the negative nancys out there. They'll never be satisfied. What was needed was change and that is coming. Can't wait to see what it is!

1) 100 cards is enough to flip the meta a few times, look at 5T set just 1 event allowed to create tons of new viable decks.

2) We don't know which cards are going to be nerfed/buffed with release of BS2. They haven't announced it yet.

3) Ishuma isn't as dominant as it used to be few months ago, neither Nergal is in his strongest state. If I had to whine about any decks it would be Kelthor, not because he is too strong but he is played too often.

Ha, sorry I was a jerk then. Go back and reread what you said, your use of the term "Spring Break" gives a very different impression. Imagine your post coming from a 16 year old, and a bit of snark seems justified. Plus, that's the latest Spring Break I've ever heard of, around here it was last week.

03-20-2014, 06:19 AM
I fail to understand what people are cheering for? In another words the announcement says: We fail do release BS2 update right on time and it's delayd due to expansion release.

We all know that expansion was supposed to be released shortly after BS2 update, wich could mean 2-4 weeks and we already knew everything what this expansion contains.

Actually only thing I care to know is connection problems somehow fixed? Or atleast you would not lose ranking after disconnection/desyncronation/error drop.

heart of nightmares...hmm does that suggest DUNGEON or am I just being naive and wishfull?...

hope you don't mess up the ballance with this; as you are now in the middle of a pretty good rebalance trend with BS2...fingers crossed

There won't be a new faction. They've clearly stated this. Adding a new faction to the game is not that simple.

EDIT: I'm probably wrong, but with a name like this, it could be a Necro / Death themed set (kinda like Torment in MtG)

Hall of Nightmares, Nightmares from H5, it will be definitly inferno-oriented.
A exp. with a new faction would have ~170 cards, if not more.

I've never really liked anything after HoMM3. That 3D non-sense makes the map unmanagable. Call me old school, but I think HoMM3 is the best. Not because of the campaign, but because of the gameplay. Granted, it's not perfect (Fortress just plain sucks) but I can always fire it up for a quick skirmish.

I would like to see real 3D in this type of game, cards popping up from screen as they are played , your deck is in front of you movement sensor like small webcam on monitor registering your hand movement and hand picking cards and playing them, hawing cards that are reversed -3D on them self as a small window to that world, animations , sound effects etc.... :)
But creating that content is endless work so i don't expect it for now but in 5 - 10 years could be normal thing.

None of that 3D BS please... no. I like the fast pace of the game. Bells and whistles just slow it down.

One question to the devs (answer YES or NO):

Will the HoN box contain 26 Wildcards?

Yes, the answer is one of those two options http://static-cdn.jtvnw.net/jtv_user_pictures/chansub-global-emoticon-ddc6e3a8732cb50f-25x28.png

I don't think that they will give you a better answer yet.
Just less trolling and more "we can't say anything about it yet".

I'm sure they wouldn't say yes, but if they say NO, it could mean multiple things.

A fixed release date would be nice, to give players a chance to collect their weekly rewards in time. I don't want to log in the next day and see my rewards reset and gone.

one (for 7 wildcards) is a BS2 version, and the second one (more expensive) is BS1 version
