Congratulations to the 2014 HeroClix World Champions and An Exciting 2015 World Championship Announcement!

 

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Last week players from all over the world gathered for the HeroClix World Championship at Gen Con Indy.  Some players qualified internationally via Road to Worlds events hosted all over the globe, while others seized the opportunity to participate in last-minute qualifiers hosted at Gen Con itself.  When the dust finally settled on Saturday, one player arose to claim the title of World Champion:  please join us in congratulating Patrick Yapjoco on becoming the 2014 HeroClix World Champion!

2014_hcwc_patrick

That’s not all! For the first time ever, WizKids hosted a HeroClix Team-Up World Championship event.   Teams of three players gathered and competed on Thursday and Friday of the show to earn a spot in the Team-Up World Championship final event on Saturday.  When the last dice were rolled, one Team stood victorious.  Please join us in congratulating the first-ever HeroClix World Championship Team: Kevin Afrooz, Patrick Yapjoco, and Justino Jimenez, also known as “Team Majestix Apex Predators!”

2014_hcwc_team

The HeroClix Road to Worlds in 2014 was an exciting event series with officially sanctioned international events feeding the World Championship Final event at Gen Con for the very first time, and the Road to Worlds 2015 promises to be just as exhilarating with even more events leading up to the 2015 HeroClix World Championship!

road-to-worlds-logo-2015

And speaking of the 2015 HeroClix World Championship, we have even more news to share as well.   Next year, WizKids Games will be moving all of its World Championship events to Origins Game Fair.  This will mean that Origins Game Fair will play host to the 2015 World Championship events for HeroClixAttack Wingand Dice Masters.

This move doesn’t mean WizKids won’t be at Gen Con Indy 2015, far from it in fact.  Players and fans can still expect to see us at Gen Con 2015 both on the exhibit floor and in the tournament hall.  We will still be offering fantastic demos, desirable exclusives and fun competitive events at Gen Con.  Gen Con is a fantastic show and WizKids plans on attending for many years to come.

The move to Origins will allow us to spread out and create comfortable, safe and enjoyable experience for our larger sized events. Along with the move come some changes; specifically we’ll be moving to a ticketing system (or equivalent) as a way to manage the lines at our booth and we will continue to work with show organizers where possible to manage the WizKids crowds outside our areas of jurisdiction.

We realize that these are big changes, not just in locale but also in the timing of the WizKids World Championship events, and we want everybody to have as much advance notice as possible.  There is more news to come later down the line, but in the meantime we wanted to announce this change as early as possible so the WizKids community can plan accordingly.

Mark your calendars for June 3-7, 2015 and join us in Columbus, Ohio for the all-new WizKids World Championship events at Origins Game Fair!

Conventions Gen Con Indy HeroClix Worlds

On the Road: GenCon Indy 2013

Greetings WizKids Fans and Supporters!

After all of the fun and excitement of the HeroClix Nationals at Origins Game Fair, the convention season turns to Gen Con Indy on August 15-18 2013.  Players will have the chance to play in many tourneys at GenCon Indy this year between HeroClix Worlds, Battle Royales, and many, many different exciting side events.  These events at Gen Con Indy will be the first WizKids run events that will use the updated HeroClix Comprehensive Tournament Rules which includes new map rules and the update to HeroClix Ages.

HeroClix Worlds returns to Gen Con Indy but with a new format and twice the excitement.  This year will see the crowning of two HeroClix World Champions – Modern Age and Golden Age!  Do you have what it takes to win both championships?  Win the HeroClix Worlds Finals in either Modern Age or Golden Age and claim the top prize of designing a figure in addition to other prizes.  Or prove you are the best in both formats and design 2 figures!

The excitement isn’t limited to the Tournament area however! Stop by the WizKids Games booth on the show floor and try out some spectacular new games! Does the Final Frontier beckon? Then take a look at the all-new Star Trek Attack Wing, available in both standard demos and LARGE, oversized demos! Want to live large as a Rail Baron? Then try out the all-new railroad-based dice-building game, Trains and Stations! Do you want to claim the city of Gotham for your own?  Then demo the Batman: Gotham Strategy City Game.   Can’t have enough dice?  Then demo Quarriors! for all of the dice you could ever want.  Want to bring home a tentacled new friend? Then purchase the Marvel HeroCilx convention exclusive, Shuma GorathOr purchase the as-of-yet unrevealed DC HeroClix convention exclusive! It would be a sin to not take something home with you!

The full list of events for Gen Con Indy is below and we look forward to seeing you there!

HEROCLIX BATTLE ROYALE (MARVEL or DC)

Game Play:  Four players sign up and four boosters go into the pool.  Each player opens a booster, drafts a character for their force, and passes the rest of the booster to the next player.  Once all figures have been drafted, game play begins.  While the rules have every player for themselves, watch out for alliances and choose any partners carefully.  After an hour of play, time is called.  The winner is the player with the most points.

Prizes:  Once the match is over, all characters are returned to the center and the judge will add a 2013 Convention Limited Edition figure to the pool from the correct universe.  For DC, these prizes will be Bat-Mite, Gentleman Ghost, or Superman and Wonder Woman.  For Marvel, these prizes will be Death Mask, Obnoxio the Clown, or Old Man Logan.  A snake-draft is then used to distribute the figures.  The winner drafts a figure from the pool (this time, to keep), followed by whoever placed second, then third, and then fourth.  As a snake draft, the next draft round starts with the fourth player, then third, then second, and then first.  And so it goes until all figures are in someone’s possession.

Cost:  $12 (6 Generic tickets for each player).  This year, in addition to generic tickets, we are selling 100 tickets for Battle Royals on the even hours (10 AM, Noon, 2 PM, 4 PM, and 6 PM).  At those times, we will be placing the on-demand line on hold, calling for ticket holders and seating them.  Once the reserved ticket-holder line is complete, we will go back to running the on-demand line.  If you have a Battle Royale ticket for a particular time and you miss that particular call, have no fear as those tickets will be honored as a generic ticket for another event, whether it’s a Battle Royale at a different time or a different WizKids event.

Availability/Schedule:  Thursday-Saturday 10 AM-Midnight & Sunday 10 AM-4 PM or as long as we have product.

HEROCLIX WORLDS: MODERN AGE & GOLDEN AGE

Modern Age Game Play:  Players have 2 opportunities to qualify – once on Thursday and once on Friday.  Undefeated players from these events will qualify for Saturday’s finals.  This event will have a 300 point build total and all Modern Age game effects are permitted.  This event will use the new updated HeroClix Modern Age and will use the following Map Menu:

01 – Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War European Castle

02 – Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War Quinn Jet Hangar

03 – Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War Avenger’s Mansion

04 – Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War Negative Zone Prison

05 – Marvel HeroClix: Amazing Spider-Man Dr. Strange Mansion

06 – Marvel HeroClix: Amazing Spider-Man The Bell Tower

07 – DC HeroClix: Justice League Gotham Rooftops

08 – DC HeroClix: Justice League Paradise Island

09 – DC HeroClix: Batman Lazarus Pit

10 – DC HeroClix: Batman Bat Cave

11 – DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham Gotham Clock Tower

12 – DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham Crime Alley

13 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Wayne Manor

14 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Post-Quake Wayne Manor

15 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Robinson Park

16 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Post-Quake Robinson Park

17 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Blackgate Prison

18 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Post-Quake Blackgate Prison

19 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Gotham Power Plant

20 – DC HeroClix: No Man’s Land Post-Quake Gotham Power Plant

Golden Age Game Play:  Players have 2 opportunities to qualify.  The event will have a 300 point build total and all Golden Age figures – including Lord of the Ring, Hobbit, Gears of War, Street Fighter, Halo, etc. – are permitted.  What is restricted are “Tactics”.  Tactics are defined in “Part 4” of the rule book and include:  Special Objects, Resources, Feats, Battlefield Conditions, Event Dials, Bystander Tokens, and Themed Teams.  Your team can’t make use of any of these mechanics.  Some helpful clarification for you:

Does this mean I can’t use keywords, like if my character has a special power that activates when he’s near someone with a particular keyword?  No.  Keywords are still a part of the game and can be used.  It is ONLY themed team rules that are not used.  Heck, your team can even have a group of figures with an exclusive keyword.  It just isn’t considered a “themed team”.

What about characters that have special objects or bystander tokens – can I use those? Well, you can certainly use those characters on your force.  However the “No Tactics” rule still applies.  So, for example, you can play with Falcon (from Captain America), and he even begins the game with Redwing attached, however, since the game does not allow bystander tokens, you can’t detach Redwing and play the bystander.

The Golden Age event will use the new map rules included in the updated HeroClix Comprehensive Tournament Rules (or just to clarify, the map menu is not part of the Golden Age event)

All 4 qualifiers have been carefully scheduled so as to allow you to play in all 4, should you want to try for the ultimate championship.

Game Play:  Undefeated players from these events will qualify for Saturday’s finals in the corresponding format.  There will be some pre-qualified players who will already have seats from events like the US Nationals, last year’s World Champion, etc.  After these folks are seated, we will start looking at the 2-day overall record of people in the qualifiers and seat based on rating and who is present.  We will keep going down the list until we’ve seated 32 people.  Those 32 players will play until we get ourselves a champion.

As with the qualifiers, the Saturday finals are scheduled so that you can play in both events.

Prizes:  The top half of players in each qualifier will choose from a pool of 2013 Convention Limited Edition figures that will include Bat-Mite, Gentleman Ghost, Superman and Wonder Woman, Death Mask, Obnoxio the Clown, or Old Man Logan.

World Championship Prize:  A complete set of the 2013 Convention Limited Edition figures, Shuma Gorath, DC Convention Purchase Exclusive, a Teen Titans factory set, and many more prizes and, of course, Design-a-Fig.

Cost:  $12 Event Ticket (or 6 generic tickets but seating will go to those with an event ticket first).

HEROCLIX SCENARIOS

Game Play:  Every day brings a variety of HeroClix games to play.  See the scenarios described below for more details.

Prizes:  The top half of players in these event will choose from a pool of 2013 Convention Limited Edition figures that will include Bat-Mite, Gentleman Ghost, Superman and Wonder Woman, Death Mask, Obnoxio the Clown, or Old Man Logan.

Availability/Schedule:

Thursday Noon:  Golden-Golden Age – Build a 200 point Golden Age force using characters only. All standard HeroClix rules apply EXCEPT: (1) A character may be given a non-free action after it has been carried and (2) Fliers are not restricted from being carried!  Play HeroClix like you used to way back in the day!

Friday Noon:  Magnificent Seven – Bring a 1,000 point force (Modern Age) with exactly 7 characters.  The characters must all share a named keyword.

Will my force get a Themed Team bonus? No. At 1,000 points, a themed team would need to have 10 characters on it.
Can I use other game elements besides characters?  No.  Game elements that cost points may only be characters.

Saturday Noon:  Build a Bigger Army – This event starts out as a 300 point Golden Age force (no tactics allowed – that means no special objects, no themed teams, no resources, no relics, etc.). After the first round you add another 100 points to your build total.  And after the second round?  Another 100 points!  And so on.  Players should be prepared for this event to go up to 7 rounds (that’s 1000 points).

If my starting force is 295 points, can I add 105 points of characters in the next round? Yes.  However, as each round begins, you may not have more than 25 points leftover.

Saturday 2:00 PM:  HeroClix Mashup – Build a 500 point Golden Age force (characters only, no ships).  The only catch is that each character must come from a different HeroClix brand.

Sunday is “Scenario Day”: All events begin at 11:00 AM

Meteor Shower – This event is a 400 point Modern Age force.  But whatever map you choose, a swarm of meteors is falling.  During the event, the judge will call out map coordinates where the meteors land!

  • If a character occupies square, they are dealt 3 unavoidable damage.
  • If a character is adjacent to that square, they are dealt 2 penetrating damage.
  • If a character is within 2 squares of that square, they are dealt 1 damage.

What happens with a multi-base character? Characters are only dealt damage once and they are dealt damage based on the square closest to the “impact” square.

Choose Your Enemy – For this event, build two 300 point Modern Age forces.  Each force can’t have any game elements that exist on the other force.  As you are seated to play, you will review your opponent’s 2 forces and choose which one they are to play in the coming battle.  Choose wisely!

Golden-Golden Age – Build a 200 point Golden Age force using characters only.  All standard HeroClix rules apply EXCEPT: (1) A character may be given a non-free action after it has been carried and (2) Fliers are not restricted from being carried!  Play HeroClix like you used to way back in the day!

Protect the Boss – Build a 300 point Modern Age force with at least 5 characters.  The character with the highest point value is “The Boss”.  Game plays as normal, with one twist.  If the Boss is KO’d, all other characters on that force are immediately KO’d as well.

Cost:  $12 Event Ticket (or 6 generic tickets but seating will go to those with an event ticket first).

2013 Convention Exclusive Preview

HeroClix on the Road 2013: Death Mask!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

For our sixth HeroClix prize preview of the 2013 convention season, we decided to bring a version of our favorite Merc with a Mouth to the convention season.  We are pleased to present Death Mask, who is making his first appearance in HeroClix.

M-007-DeathMask Death Mask is the Wade Wilson of Earth-11638 and was saved by Dr. Reed Richards from a lethal brain tumor and thus began his illustrious career.  I’m a Genius, Thanks to Dr. Reed Richards (Outwit) allows Death Mask to have his way by turning off powers on opposing characters.  If that’s not enough, Death Mask can Manipulating the Nice Spider-Man (Probability Control) to make sure that his attacks hit home and if that doesn’t work, he can always Lying to the Nice Spider-Man (Perplex) to adjust his combat values to do the trick.  Because, really what fun isn’t had at the expense of Spider-Man if you’re Death Mask.

Like any other version of Wade Wilson, Death Mask’s I’m Wade Wilson, Too (Trait) allows him to heal himself of damage but with a unique twist where you add the roll of a d6 to his current click number to determine how much healing takes place.  If the combined result is 8 or more, heal Death Mask of 1 damage.  If the combined result is 12 or more, heal him of an additional click of damage (for a total of 2 damage healed).  What does Death Mask have that Deadpool doesn’t?  Well of course it’s a Metal Suit of Armor…And a Snazzy Cape and Tunic (Invulnerability) to help him fend off those incoming attacks.  If that’s not enough, Death Mask can pull off Operation: The Old Switcheroo (Special Power) that allows him to use Combat Reflexes and Invulnerability.  Also, if this click is revealed while turning the dial, you stop on it.  There is a drawback however in that you can’t be healed beyond this click from that point forward in the game.

Did I Ever Tell You About the Time I Created That Great Diversion? (Special Power) allows Death Mask to use Charge and Stealth but it also allows him to pester your opponent as well.  If he’s adjacent to an opposing character, then they must target Death Mask if they are making a close combat attack.  If Death Mask is within the range and line of fire of an opposing character, then he must be targeted by any ranged combat attack that character makes.  I mean with a character like Death Mask around, who would want to attack anyone else before shutting up this Merc with a Mouth.

If that’s not enough for you, Death Mask can always use that bomb he is holding with his Hey, Death Mask…CATCH! (Special Power).  Give Death Mask a ranged combat action and target a single character.  Using the new area of effect part of the action, this attack can also hit opposing characters that are adjacent to the target.  If you hit, you deal damage normally to the target and then any opposing character adjacent to the target that is hit takes damage equal to half the result of a d6 roll.  Talk about an explosive situation!

Origins Game Fair is the first convention that this figure will be available at as a prize and the events for Origins have already been posted on HeroClix.com so please check them out.  Tune in later this week for a list of all of the exciting events at Gen Con Indy.   Wait, did I forget something…I guess there are worse sins then forgetfulness, maybe next time for an answer to that question.
