Unchained Behaviors

We also saw our first Unchained duels take place at KeyForge Celebration. Many of you took the time to tell us how much you loved playing Unchained and the numbers back it up! You all reported over 750 Unchained matches. Our most Unchained mastermind went to Z Smith, who racked up 26 wins! We heard loud and clear how many of you loved that it forced many to interact and meet new people in the community. We, like many of you, chalked this one up as a success and look forward to how to continue this trend for future events.

Slay the Keyraken

Finally, we want to give a shout out to our trio that bested our Keyraken Invictus challenge. Self proclaimed “The Band” took down the Keyraken at record speeds in under 13 minutes! Seen holding their prizes are Nick Simonelli, Joe Simonelli, and Greg Cousins. Congratulations!
