Celebrating the End of Gifting
All good things must end, and that means EpicDuel latest Gifting event is finally coming to an epic conclusion! We'd like to extend a special thanks to all our gifters and giftees who helped this season shatter all previous records for generosity and excitement!
Gifting will end officially at the server reset at the end of the day on Friday January 4th. The reset happens at midnight EST. That means Friday will be the final day for gifting. After that, the leaderboards will be locked in place, celebrating the grand champions of this epic gifting season!
Gifting ended and I'm in the top 15! What now?
First of all: CONGRATULATIONS! You absolutely destroyed the totals of all previous gifting events! You should be extremely proud of your contributions to the EpicDuel community, and we am humbled and honored by your generosity. After gifting officially ends, you will then be contacted by Nightwraith through one of your account's valid email addresses with further details. Please keep in mind that some prizes will be more complicated than others, especially the #1 custom prize, and may take some time to deliver fully. If you need some time to think, don't sweat! You can take your time thinking of a suitable wish.
What do I do with my Secret/Silver Secret Package?
You don't have to do anything! When the time is right for them to open, they will automatically transform into the appropriate item. We want to leave a buffer between gifting and the prize reveal to make sure all the winners and package recipients are in good standing and to add a final polish pass on the prizes! We hope you like them, because they'll be some of the prettiest, most unique rewards in the game!

2018 ended with a huge victory for EpicDuel. The level of generosity and excitement from the community encouraging, surprising, and inspiring. We knew gifting would be a big deal, as it always is, but this year you knocked it out of the park and into the stratosphere. Where do we go from here, though? Lots of people want lots of different things in EpicDuel: New phases, new wars, new classes, new features, even a whole new game. More than a few want all of the above! Any one of those tasks would be extremely ambitious, but this year's resurgence was also ambitious. The passion in EpicDuel's community is undeniable and will usher in a new year of great possibilities for the game.
This post is vague because while there are so many directions the game could go, including making real progress on EpicDuel's modest gameplan goals stating in a Design Notes post last summer, it's still difficult to see past the holiday haze and the work involved in the aftermath of gifting. That's why one immediate goal is acquiring an art assistant to help beef up EpicDuel's content and make it easier to focus on mid-long term development projects. However, that's only step one in the thousand step journey to an even greater 2019 for EpicDuel. The challenges facing Flash and the indie gaming industry from 2018 haven't vanished, but we know we'll have plenty of supporters willing to continue on the journey with us into an epic new year!
Stay tuned as more plans coalesce in the new year!
