Gift-A-Geddon 2023!

EpicDuel Gift-a-Geddon 2023

Today, Monday November 20th, we've launched a massive mega-pack of 50,000 Varium for 20,000 Artix Points. Those who purchase this pack will also be awarded a one-time Legendary Epic Supporter 2023 achievement! This is an incredible value, but it will only be around for a limited time: the promotion will officially end when gifting begins on December 4th!

Because our 10,000 AP promotional packages have had inflated sale quantities of Varium for a long time, these packages will NOT have the customary increase in included Varium. However, these packages will still award the Epic Supporter 2023 achievement which will evolve if the packs are purchased multiple times! The 50,000 Varium pack will also count towards the Epic Supporter 2023 achievement. If you purchased a 10,000 AP package on Wednesday November 1st up to just before the new update took effect today November 20th, you will be awarded the appropriate achievement and tier.


Gifting Prizes

If you didn't already know, the gifting prizes and rules have changed this year! Please review the Design Notes posts covering the prizes and changes thoroughly before participating: September 22, 2023 and November 3, 2023. We don't want to let anyone down at the end of the competition because they didn't understand or were misinformed about what the final prizes would be. Also, don't count on the rules changing after the competition is over or nearly over.

Perhaps, if this Gifting season proves to be more sustainable in terms of overall workload, we can expand it in future seasons, but for now, the rules are what they are. We apologize to anyone who was disappointed, but our hope is this season can be more rewarding for more participants while also providing a suitable reward for the top Gifters.


Techstalker Items

The Techstalker Promotional package and items have been out of the game for over a year, and although most of the the items are Rare, we're adding the cores and bots to Acatriel's in-game shop as we have with promotional cores and items in the past.

Additionally, cores and robots from last year's Sanguinomancer Battlepass have been made available on Acatriel temporarily. In the future, we will consolidate Battlepass cores and robots on one new NPC so they can be retrieved more easily.
