Dear the Best Game Community for the Best Card Game,
So, it will all be over soon™. Although this outcome was inevitable, it was still a horrible blow when I read the announcement, as I’m sure it was to all of you.
Duelyst is truly the best card game ever made, and Bandai Namco was extremely foolish to let it die like this. But the end of Duelyst is even more saddening to me because of the loss of this community.
I would like to take this time to apologize for some of my past actions on these Forums… most notably, the DOOMsday Clock. Even if my negativity was justified, I was annoying and provocative, and I am ashamed of that. I am sorry to all those whom I came into conflict with.
On the flipside, I would like to thank all of you one last time. It was really fun to write the Poll-Ventures with you (I wish I could do one more, but sadly my schedule is much too busy now), and to see all of your creative designs in the Word-to-Card Contest (which I will run one last time, if anyone is in the mood for it). I may not actually be your Chief of Communication, but this community does mean a lot to me. Thank you.
And now I would like to give something back to you all, even if it is a transient gift.
This is permanent (until Feb 27), can be used in online games and appears to your opponent, and is very easy to obtain. Here’s how to unlock all exclusive skins (this includes Sarlac Prime, Dogehai, Twitch Prime Healing Mystic, and the exclusive card backs):
- Navigate to the duelyst.js file (in the Duelyst folder on your computer, go to \resources\app\src\duelyst.js).
- Hit Ctrl-F to open the finder and replace all instances of “purchasable:!1” with “purchasable:!0”.
- Enter the game, go to the shop, and you will see the exclusive skins there. Buy them for 3000 spirit each to add them to your collection.
And now, for a couple of suspiciously optimistic words from the most pessimistic person on the Forums:
Although we may never see the likes of Duelyst again, Counterplay still owns the IP, so there is a modicum of hope for the far, far future. Additionally, we will always have access to the fabulous Duelyst music on Spotify (I’m listening to it right now, actually), and parts of this community will still live on on Discord.
Speaking of Discord, I would be honored to have more of you join my new Discord server, if you are interested. Especially if you enjoy game development (any aspect of it), as I am trying to create an environment for sharing such ideas and getting feedback from others.
But that’s enough self-advertisement. Have fun in this wonderful game while there’s still time, and enjoy your shiny new previously-exclusive skins!
