CARTE STEPS INTO THE ARENA

Sunnyvale, Calif. (June 22, 2012) – Card games are serious business: Leading online game publisher GamesCampus.com ( www.GamesCampus.com) announced a round of new features for their global online trading card game,  Carte,  based on user feedback.  With numerous balances and checks added to the match system to give players the fairest duels yet, it’s the best time to shuffle your deck and join in the card community at carte.gamescampus.com, where downloading and playing Carte is always free!

 

"The matchmaking system in Carte has always been one of the game’s crowning achievements, but we knew it needed some refinement, so we asked the players what their top suggestions were and went to work." said Hubert Yee, Head of Marketing at GamesCampus. "With numerous tweaks, both big and small, players will see an immediate difference in their matches."

The newly launched Carte Arena is a suave matchmaking system that adds numerous “quality of life” functions seen in large, popular MMORPGs, made to scale for a card battle system.  First is an automated matchmaker system, which will queue up willing opponents and search for suitable foes to conquer – no more hunting for open rooms!  This pairing system will also intelligently match players of approximate skill level together; no more inadvertently playing an opponent who is completely dominating or completely clueless.

The new Arena also saves each season, both to compile a ranking for all players (including leaderboards) but for players to be able to review past match history to either brag about their stunning victory, or study what led to their embarrassing loss.  A detailed section on union stats will also be available to players, allowing them to get a better insight into card combinations and adjust their decks and strategies to suit their needs.

This is all in addition to the freshly minted Arena Medals, which is earned by competing in any Arena match.  This new currency allows players to purchase exclusive heroes and a variety of cards not found anywhere else in Carte.  All these changes, with more coming in the future, will make players sing with glee, “Everyday I’m shufflin’"
