Summary

Currently, Hex: Shards of Fate has 6 different on-demand PvP queues and a variety of Scheduled events. A quick overview can be found in the Hex Tournament Quick Start Guide by SilentSnake.

Whenever you encounter a game-breaking bug or a disconnect bug during a tournament with paid entry, report this with details to HEX Support (support accounts are independent from your HEX accounts and thus need to be registered separately). If you do, you will usually receive a replacement entry ticket for the same kind of tournament afterwards.

Draft Gauntlet

Draftgauntlet.png

Draft Gauntlet starts by selecting the tournament queue and joining the lobby. From here, you’ll wait until a full 8 players enter the queue. Once all 8 players enter the draft, the drafting portion will begin automatically. You can choose to leave the queue at any point before the 8th player enters at no cost to you. In the drafting portion you will open your pack, pick one of the cards within a set time limit, pass it to the player "to your left" and wait until everyone has done the same, then you choose a card from the cards you were passed and pass the remaining of those cards to the next player, this process repeats until all cards have been picked. On the 9th pick from the pack you will see your pack from the first 1st but with the 8 cards you and the other 7 players have chosen missing. Then you open your 2nd pack which acts in the same way except now the cards are passed to the player 'to your right'. Pack 3 behaves the same as pack 1. The time limit for how long you have to pick a card will be shorter the fewer cards are left in the pack you have to choose from (5 seconds off with each pick). As there are 8 players you will get to pick from every pack twice and a 3rd time for your pack and the pack that started next to you. The process ends when all 8 players have drafted 51 cards. Then, once everyone has selected their last card, you’ll be autocratically taken to the Draft Gauntlet Tournament screen. Here's a Visual representation of the drafting process:

Kismet's Draft

Kismet's Draft.png

Kismet's Draft is a special draft format that replaces the existing format where the packs used to enter are Kismet Draft Packs which are packs whose content changes and is used to create a more unique draft experience covering more than the usual 1 or 2 sets. The rewards are swapped to Kismet Draft Packs instead of the packs for the duration. Special rewards are offered for winning Kismet Draft Games which can be found on the Kismet's Draft Page.

Flashback Draft

Sometimes hex will host 'Flashback' Draft events. While normally only the recent sets are used for limited play, sometimes hex will bring back older limited formats for a period of time to give players a chance at playing the formats again. However this do not happen often.
