Faeria Friday: Monthly Cup XV

Written by Gary Morris  |  10/06/2017

Saturday, October 7th, watch 32 of the best players in Faeria compete for $3300 in prizes. Also, the Adventure Pouch is closing Monday, and our AI has deep-seated emotional issues.

A new build-order strategy: The Forest Kick

Adventure Pouch: Oversky closes Monday

As mentioned in the Adventure Pouch FAQ and in-game:

Adventure Pouch: Oversky closes: Monday, October 9th (23:59:59 UTC)

What happens when the Adventure Pouch:Oversky closes?

Once the Adventure Pouch closes:

  • The Emperor’s Challenge will no longer be available.
  • Adventure Pouch bundles are no longer available for purchase
  • The Adventure Pouch is removed, and you can no longer level it up to receive rewards

One more weekend of Adventure Pouch goodness. We hope you enjoyed our special Adventure Pouch promotion for the release of the Oversky expansion. Remember, if you haven't purchased a Pouch yet for the rewards, the points you earn throughout the Pouch being available are retroactive - should you really want those cosmetics.

For clarity's sake: The islands of the Oversky do not disappear when the Adventure Pouch closes. They can't possibly fit in there.

The only winning move is not to play

Earlier this week, while investigating a strange bug and running some tests, we discovered a rare but disturbing tendency from our in-game AI.

Each turn, part of the AI's calculation is to determine if their opponent will have lethal next turn with what is on board. If the AI determines there is no way to prevent this, the best possible output based on its calculation model is to kill itself.

Yes, our AI commits suicide from time to time. Often with a card like Flame Burst. An honorable Seppuku.

It would rather do the deed itself than give you the satisfaction of the kill.

Android gem fixes

This week we have applied fixes to some critical issues where Android players were not correctly receiving gems after making a purchase. You should now properly have these items after logging in, if you have not already been refunded through Google.

Monthly Cup XV: $3300 in prizes

  • Monthly Cup XV takes place: Saturday, October 7th at 4:00pm CEST.

Watch any of the below streams to win prizes!

Watching more than one does not increase your chances.

The Monthly Cup is a single elimination monthly competition where 32 of the best Faeria players from all over the world compete for $3300 in prizes. Each match consists of a Best of 5 series of games in Pantheon format.

Watch, cheer, and win. You can earn prizes just by watching the stream.

How to win prizes

The most important thing you need to know in order to win prizes while watching the Monthly Cup stream is to link your Faeria account directly to Twitch by using The Hub. We've made it as easy as possible for you.

Please note, if you have ever changed your Twitch display name after linking your accounts, you MUST unlink your accounts then RELINK them, or you will receive no prizes. Changing your Twitch username breaks the linking process.

The prize structure is as follows:
(Remember, each is a CHANCE to win)

You are able to view your Egg Timer at any moment by looking at your profile on The Hub.

Egg hatching

As with every other Monthly Cup, Eggs will be hatching the entire weekend.

There are 8 total hatchlings you can potentially get. After that, your Eggs won't hatch. It's possible to hatch more than one Egg in the same weekend. If you're logged into Faeria during the hatching period, your Eggs are even more likely to hatch.

Here is all the information concerning the Egg and Egg hatching event
