That Wizards of the Coast vs. HEX lawsuit has finally been settled

Good news, virtual card game fans! That long-running lawsuit between Hex Entertainment, Cryptozooic, and Wizards of the Coast is finally out of the way. If you’d forgotten all about the lawsuit, it was all about the fact that Wizards felt HEX: Shards of Fate bore some… resemblance to WotC’s long-running card game Magic: the Gathering. Which side you were rooting for depended a great deal on which game you liked to play.

But there’s no need to worry about it any longer because the parties involved have reached a settlement with undisclosed terms. Peace has been made, and players can continue slinging cardboard both real and virtual with impunity. Good news all around.


HEX throws free Valentine’s Day tournament

Whether or not you have plans for this Valentine’s Day weekend, HEX would like you to consider its arena test server as the most romantic locale between two lovers and a whole lot of enemies.

The beta title announced yesterday that it’s bringing back the arena starting today and continuing through Saturday evening. As a bonus, the team is throwing a free tournament on Saturday with booster pack prizes that can be carried over to the live game. All players will get a free entry ticket, although to participate a player must have an account that was created on or before February 1st.
