Important WizKids Event System Announcement!

 

WES logo

The WES is dead. Long live the new WES!

As noted in one of Justin Ziran’s recent open letters, we have been hard at work on a ground-up rebuild of the WizKids Event System (the “WES”) and the WizKids Product Replacement System (the “WRS”). We are excited to announce that we are rolling out the initial release of the new WES and WRS on Monday, June 9th, 2014. As part of this release we have ported over the data for all stores, events, and players from the old systems as well as the store locator to make for as smooth a transition as possible. As such you should be able to log in with your current credentials on Monday. Please note: We will be taking the old WES down for maintenance on Monday morning to start the transition. We’re hoping to have the new WES back up in the afternoon. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

So What’s New?

For now, the new WES and WRS aim to replicate the same functionality of the old systems in a more intuitive and efficient manner. The goal is to make these systems easier to use and speed up your interaction with the system. The WES, in particular, will include some great new refinements and makes it easier to find events and stores, and for store owners and volunteers to report their events.

As a Player, in addition to the features from the old system, you now will be able to…

  • Follow your favorite stores to keep up to date with them
  • Select an option to be notified when your favorite stores host a new event
  • Select an option to receive reminders about upcoming events for which the player has registered
  • Find players by email or last name and look at their player profile (based on their privacy settings)
  • Adjust privacy settings for your profile information to control what you share with other users

As a Store, in addition to the features from the old system, you now will be able to…

  • Select an option to be notified when a new player “follows” or “likes” your store
  • Select an option to be notified when a new player registers for an event at your store
  • We have prepared tutorials for all the major portions of the site, to show how the new sites handles the features from the old systems.

 

What’s next?

The new WES and WRS are going to serve as foundations for some exciting new features coming soon. Here are some examples of some great new features for the WES.

Soon Players will…

  • be able to earn achievements based on participating in and winning events, volunteering for venues, and more
  • be ranked on a leaderboard based on their win/loss record and points earned from their achievements
  • have a gamer-tag with a player avatar and extended profile that will show achievements and leaderboard rank
  • be able to form teams with other players and compete in team based rankings
  • be able to follow other players and receive notifications when they participate in or win an event
  • send messages to other players (based on their privacy settings)

Soon Stores will…

  • be able to earn achievements based on hosting and reporting events and growing their player base
  • have a store profile that will show their achievements, images, and more
  • be able to upload images of their store and past hosted events to their store profile
  • send messages to volunteers and players that are following the store (based on their privacy settings)

 

What if something goes wrong?

As with any new system rollout, we can’t guarantee that there wont be some minor glitches. We are doing our best to ensure this doesn’t happen. Moreover, we are making sure that the database for the old system will remain intact, to avoid any data loss. If you encounter any trouble with the WES or the WRS, please send an email to support@mfv.com and we’ll do our best to resolve the issue in a timely fashion.

Thank you as always for your continued interest and support.  Please join us Monday as we usher in an all-new era for the WES and WRS!
-The WizKids Games Team

Worlds Grinders will get the winner a seat at the World Semi-Finals on Saturday and his choice between 2 random figures from a pool of Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, Superman & Superman, Apocalypse, Punisher, and Venom and his opponent in the third round gets the other figure.  This event lasts approximately 3 hours and the last event on Thursday and Friday will start no later than 9 PM on those days.

Worlds “Last Chance” Grinder will get the top 4 players a prize from the Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, Superman & Superman, Apocalypse, Punisher, and Venom prize pool and the winner will get a spot in the World Finals on Sunday.

World Finals will get the winner a prize package to include designing your own figure in an upcoming set (subject to licensor and WizKids approval).  In addition the winner will get a set of the 2012 Convention figures and other fabulous prizes including a factory set of Chaos War.  The rest of the top 16 players from Worlds will get prizes from amongst the Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, Superman & Superman, Apocalypse, Punisher, and Venom prize pool.

Marvel Battle Royales will get the winner a random figure from a pool of Apocalypse, Punisher, and Venom.  Since this event lasts 1 hour, the last event for the day will start no later than 11 PM on Thursday Saturday and 2 PM on Sunday.

DC Battle Royales will get the winner a random figure from a pool of Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, and Superman & Superman.  Since this event lasts 1 hour, the last event for the day will start no later than 11 PM on Thursday-Saturday and 2 PM on Sunday.

The HeroClix Lord of the Rings events will get the winner a factory set of Lord of the Rings and the top half of the players a prize from a pool of Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, Superman & Superman, Apocalypse, Punisher, and Venom.  Of note, this event is limited to only figures from the Lord of the Rings set.

The HeroClix Street Fighter Tag Team events will get the winner a factory set of Street Fighter and the top half of the players a prize from a pool of Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, Superman & Superman, Apocalypse, Punisher, and Venom.  Of note, this event limits your team to 4 figures and no tactics other than standard objects in this format (this includes bystander tokens, special objects, resources, themed teams, etc.).

The HeroClix Star Trek Tactics events will get the winner a factory set of Star Trek Tactics and the top half of the players a prize from a pool of Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, Superman & Superman, Apocalypse, Punisher, and Venom.  Of note, this event is limited to only figures from the Star Trek Tactics set.

Quarriors! events will get all of the players a promo card.  Winners of the Semi-Finals will get a Quarriors! Rise of the Demons expansion and the Finals winner will get a Quarmageddon expansion.

In addition to the above prizes for the events, all players in a WizKids event will get a random Print and Play card as a participation prize.  Please also remember that it’s while supplies last for the tourneys on each day of the convention.

The Battle Royale rules, current retirement schedule, and other tourney rules are available for download in the HeroClix Comprehensive Tournament Rules document on the HeroClix.com website.

As you can see, there are lots of wonderful prizes for our players at GenCon this year!  We hope to see all of you there!

On the Road – DexCon 15!

 

Greetings WizKids Games Fans and Supporters!

WizKids Games is pleased to announce that we will be attending DexCon 15 in neighboring Morristown, New Jersey on July 6th, 7th, and the 8th with a whole host of events for HeroClix and Quarriors fans alike! DexCon and Dreamation (also operated by Double Exposure, Inc.) are the premiere gaming conventions in New Jersey and have been a staple in the northeastern gaming scene for two decades.  Their close proximity to WizKids Games makes them an ideal locale for our events and we are happy to have this opportunity to connect with our fans in the northeast (and beyond!).

Players will have the chance to play in many tourneys at DexCon this year between the HeroClix Worlds 2012 qualifier, Battle Royales, a Galactic Guardians Colossal event, a Star Trek event, a Street Fighter/Marvel/DC Team-up event, and our second-ever Quarriors! Quorld Championship Qualifying event!   HeroClix grinders return for another shot for a skilled player to qualify for Worlds 2012;  can you battle it out with the other players and emerge as the winner?

In addition to all of these tourneys, we also have demos available; try your hand out with Quarriors, or run down the Ringbearer as a Ringwraith in Lord of the Rings: Nazgul! Lead your fleet to victory in Star Trek: Fleet Captains, or battle for hegemony in Mage Knight!

  • A figure one square away is immediately dealt 2 penetrating damage.

On the Road…Origins Game Fair

Darin Skutt | Published : April 20, 2011

As always when the weather turns warmer, I begin to think of convention season and this year is no different. Last year, GenCon was a huge success and we wanted to build upon that by going to Origins Game Fair on June 23-26th, 2011 and having a HeroClix National Championship that will lead to the HeroClix World Championship at GenCon. That’s right; WizKids is going to both Origins and GenCon this year for twice the tourney action!

Players will have the chance to play in many tourneys at Origins this year between HeroClix Nationals grinders, Battle Royales, Giant Size X-Men Colossal event, and a Captain America event. HeroClix National grinders will be a sealed event for 8 players. Want to walk the hall early or get up late because of what you did last night (we won’t ask!), you can do what you want because the grinders start whenever we have 8 players ready to go. Battle it out with the other players and emerge as the winner and get a LE prize and entrance into the National’s Final Event on Saturday. At the Nationals finals, prove you are one of the top 4 players and you get a bye into the World’s Saturday Constructed event at GenCon along with other prizes. Emerge as the top player and you get a badge to GenCon as well as additional prizes. Can you be the HeroClix National winner?

In addition to all of these tourneys, you can stop by the board game hall or the demo hall and play the new Quarriors game or explore space in the Star Trek Expeditions game along with other demos of WizKids games. An important thing to note is that playing in tourneys in the hall or purchasing product which will also happen in the tourney hall must be done in cash (as always it’s while supplies last for product and tourneys).

In the coming weeks, we’ll talk about the special prizes for these events and also update all of you on the GenCon list of events but unfortunately I have to leave you as I see three riders on the horizon. The full list of events for Origins is below and we look forward to seeing you there!
