The Shadow Walker beat the War Mage in the screen shot. Does that mean DanceMonkey can't scream, "War Mages are overpowered!" right away?

So with the wagers, I forsee people just sending gold (if that is what is wagered) to their lowbies to purchase gems faster. 25,000 for a grade 2 gem...

Tentatively, you can only wager 5, 10, or 25 gold shields per match, and we will take a 10% rake of the pot. As an example, both Player A and B wager 25 gold shields, and the winner would receive 45 gold shields. Technically, you would be able to send gold shields to a character, but there will be a charge every time you do it. However, we will keep a close eye on this in release and disable the feature if we discover a problem.

Is it a sigil or does it come free? :)

With 12 resolve, it also says each match costs 3. So it would even out to the 4/4 we have now.
Unless maybe challenging a friend costs less, like 2 per or something.

And at first I was wondering about that 10% of the pot wondering if it was a thing to help Venan make money (I don't mean it in a bad way), but I see it helps against trading some.

A few questions about the matchmaking and reward system.

1. Does the new match making system only look at rating, or will might still be factored in when match making, along with rating?

2. Is it possible for a low might but extremely high rating player (i.e. winning all his fights in his bracket) meet a high might and high rating player?

3. If the above (the second question) is true, and weekly rewards are tied to rating, does that mean low might players will almost always be at a disadvantage to earn such rewards even if they PvP at their finest (i.e. they'll eventually run into the high might players and get pushed back down the rating bracket)?

Thanks! And great screenshots =)

Hmm 12/12 resolve but apparently need 3 resolve to do a match...

So if the regen for 1 resolve its always 15 mn ... That means instead of to wait 15 mn for a battle you need to wait 45mn? Or the regen will be faster than 15mn?
