Server Instability & Artificer Academy Make Good


Hey Duelysts,

Server Instability Issues

As many of you noticed, we had some server stability issues a couple of weekends ago. Our servers had connection problems for much of the weekend. We apologize for that!

Artificer Academy Ending

Additionally, it is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the official closure of our Artificer Academy program. As many of you remember, the program was put on hold in earlier this year in July. The program itself was more lofty than we could sustain and we greatly apologize for that.

As a thank you for previously participating in the Artificer Academy, we’d like to send a special gift to each and everyone of our participants based on their previous participation. We will send these rewards as a code via email on Friday, November 16, 2018.

We also encourage you to keep streaming and being active in Duelyst. If you tweet us with your stream info, we’ll do our best to RT your streams and give shout outs where we can. You can also contact us via PM to arrange some orb codes for community giveaways if you have some good ideas. We’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Thank you for creating such great content and streams on behalf of Duelyst. We appreciate all the hard work you’ve put into making the game great.


As a make-good prize for being patient with us over the server instability issues a few weekends ago and for losing the Artificer Academy program, we are awarding all Duelyst players who are active email subscribers with three (3) free Trials of Mythron orbs, which we will distribute via email on Friday, November 16, 2018. To be eligible, you must be an active subscriber to the Duelyst Mailing List, which you can sign up for here. Email signups must be received by no later than Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 12:00 PM PST. Then, on Friday, November 16, 2018, we will send out an email containing your gifts. Note that the codes are one per account.

Duelyst DOOMsday Clock


Oh man, we’re sorry we’re taking away one of the last incentives available to new streamers, here, have 3 orbs instead.

I should add that hardly anyone will notice, seeing as the service was pulled months ago anyway and this is more a official canceling of something that was killed anyway but the narrative inst exactly what i would have cared for considering how small and fragile the community was already.


This is not the Q4 update I was expecting :frowning:


Prepare yourselves for the next wave of “Duelyst is dead” threads.


man it’s sad i really feel nothing regarding any dooly related matter anymore.


Is this the news they were excited to share and proud of? :c


To be clear, none of us here is proud or excited to share this news. However, it needed to be communicated nonetheless.


It is really sad that this program ended. That iteration of the AA didn’t even run a whole year. But I expected that to happen as soon as Thanatos left. It was just too big a hassle.

I am curious if I will get some stuff considering that I stopped streaming in summer and didn’t take it up again because of missing rewards. Finding time to stream was always hard for me but the rewards I got and could give out to viewers or tournaments etc. kept me interested enough that I found the time for the 12h minimum.

Now I can’t get myself motivated to do it. I like streaming and interacting with the chat but it is stressful and a lot of work to have some quality stream.


Same, interacting with people in chat is probably my favourite thing about streaming. When people talk its great having discussions, ideas, pointing out misplays etc. When no one talks or just having a bit of a quiet stream, it feels a bit de-motivating to do, because it feels like I’m just talking to myself for a couple of hours. But the only thing I will say, is that if you enjoy streaming then try to continue to do it.


I really appreciate the clarification on AA issue. I don’t approve being negative on the point it’s closed, cause everything is closing regarding Duelyst, so it’s not a surprise.

Still, informing us of official closure is better than putting us on hold, and I’m grateful for at least that.

Orbs are also nice :wink:
