Developer Horizon Blockchain Games has published a community update post for the free-to-play trading card game Skyweaver, announcing that a new ranking system will be released in Patch #103, while revealing that Hexbound Invasion is being delayed to early next year.

Hexbound Invasion is meant to be the game’s second major Expansion Set. It is set to include 50 new cards, with “10 new cards for each Prism: six Units, and four Spells.” The expansion contains a new ability Keyword, as well as the most expensive Unit in comparison to existing ones so far, alongside a card that is able to summon up to 12 Units at the same time and more. More info on this upcoming major update can be found in this sneak peek.

Instead of launching in October as initially planned, the developers have decided to delay the release of this Expansion Set, opting to bring it sometime early next year together with “some other key features we are currently working on.” They gave two reasons for pushing back the launch, one being that they need more time to satisfy their quality standards of the new features they have in store, while the other reason “is respect, for both this community and for our co-workers.”

“We had explored releasing the Hexbound Invasion in parts but ultimately decided it was more important to do it right and in a fully packaged release. The last thing we want is to release an update that is incomplete or buggy.  We are a small team. We know crunch is bad for everyone, and it is logistically not possible to finish it on time, so delaying the big Hexbound Invasion patch to the next year will give us the time and tranquility to do a quality job, since this community deserves nothing less.”

The Ranking system, on the other hand, will be making its way with Patch #103, both of which will soon be released. This new system is points-based, replacing ELO with Rank Points (RP), with each rank featuring 3 tiers to progress through, except for the first and last rank that only have 1 tier. It takes 100 points to go to the next tier, but to get into the first rank players need at least 1500 XP. For more details on this overhauled system, check out the deep dive overview here.

Skyweaver is available in open beta on Android and iOS devices as well as on Windows, Mac and Linux PCs as a downloadable and browser title. Last month, the team behind the NFT title announced that they have secured $40 million in a Series A funding round led by Brevan Howard Digital and Morgan Creek Digital.
