Welcome to a round up of the week. We have our Cosmic Coin reveal, changes to the Battlegrounds, a Merry Melee mode teaser, and more:
We noticed that there was a section of the ladder update article that was unclear. Here is some additional info clarifying the changes to ‘bonus stars’ on the ladder:
With the next patch, we will be removing the bonus star awarded for having a flawless match (winning both games, 2-0). This bonus encouraged players to use fast aggressive/combo decks that don’t rely on their reserves in the same way that more controlling decks might, so we’ve eliminated this unnecessary component of the system.
The bonus star earned for winning consecutive ladder matches will remain in place. This streak bonus helps good players with strong decks to ascend more quickly from the bottom ranks of the ladder, creating more balanced matches for everyone. It also lines up with the bonus streak that awards Cosmic players additional Cosmic Coins for winning consecutive matches, so it makes the entire system easier to understand.
