Hey Infinity Warriors!
Got a knack for creating fun and devious puzzles? Tired of the old Academy missions? Think you can do better? Well, here’s your chance!
As we continue revamping the new player experience behind the scenes, we noticed that the Academy was somewhat out of place: on the one hand, the word “academy” implies that the missions are primarily instructive and newbie-friendly. On the other hand, many of the missions are actually quite difficult and don’t necessarily teach players how to fully utilize basic strategies and mechanics in an intuitive way. As a result, we’re making some changes to it!
The Academy will be renamed as “Challenges”
, an area that will provide players the chance to tackle some unique and interesting missions built by the community. Since the Challenges section will cater to more experienced players, almost all features related to the new player experience will be present in the new campaign.
So, say you have the perfect challenge in mind - fantastic! All you need to do now is fill out this form and tell us about it:
Here are a few helpful tips when pitching your Challenge:
- Challenge missions are going to be the puzzles of Infinity Wars. Specific outside-the-box thinking to get around a tricky situation is encouraged, but a challenge where you fight a fair game of Infinity Wars against an AI will probably be pretty trivial.
- You can make a mission where the player can bring in their own deck, but if you do, realize that your challenge is going to be more about owning the right cards and their deck-building problem solving, rather than their in-game problem solving.
- The best designed challenges have all the information laid out in front of the player without hidden information on turn 1.
Keep these guidelines in mind and provide as much information as you can about your brilliant puzzle! Remember, the goal of a Challenge is to, well, challenge
the players! Don’t be afraid to make the most dastardly puzzles you can think of.
We’ll be accepting submissions until 1 month
from now. Also, there are no limits
to how many Challenge missions you can submit, feel free to go crazy! Once the deadline has passed, the team will look through all of the submissions and pick the best ones to put into Infinity Wars.
So get those creative juices flowing and show us what you got!
