THE EYE OF JUDGMENT: New Patch 2.01

Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on May 28, 2008 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

Hey EOJ Players,

We hope everyone got their promo cards already from Free Card Friday. Thanks again for everyone’s participation and not bringing down the blog this time. (Jeff was sweating just a “tiny” bit.)

We are happy to announce that the next EOJ patch will be released tonight at 11PM (PST time) and will fix issues that have come across since the release of SET 2. Namely some card misprints and some gameplay imbalances. Take a look at some of the EOJ Community sites for more details or review the information after the jump.

Have a great week everyone.

You KILLED EOJ with actually making me pay for the “expansion”. your card tech got hacked, the camera often never works because i play at night in a dim room, and it is cumbersome and hard to keep set up.

work on a way to duel online without the camera, and practice without the camera, and then i will care about anything that isnt just EOJ: 1.

Shoot me if this question as been answered before :P

If you make changes to cards like this, will further printings of the cards contain the modified text ? Or no ?

Also, any word on those retailers in Canada ? ;)

Thanks for the update.

Thank you, guys, for making the kinds of changes that will allow this game to be fun again. The NA delay plus the imbalanced cards had me playing everything else on the PS3 BUT EoJ. Will appreciate getting back into the game, and getting back into the top 100!!!

Big thanks and please don’t do this again with the next expansion. Would love to have a worldwide, simultaneous release of cards as well as further testing on these cards to avoid something like the original zealots almost ruining the game’s strategy again. I have a hard time believing that the creators of this game didn’t see this coming; most folks at lbshooters.com knew that the zealots were too powerful right off the bat.

I don’t know all of the details behind the delays and out-of-balance cards (though I have my thoughts) but just would like to say that I really look forward to playing this game again after 2.01 drops.

I’ve been debating on whether or not to get this game for a very long time. ;_;. Not sure what is stopping me…

+ adslalex on May 29th, 2008 at 12:14 am said:

This update is great news, but how come 2 zealots have no errata ?

I’m relieved the update didn’t take longer to come ^^!

Oh and I almost forgot, for people who struggled on “free cards fridays” and put the cards on ebay as soon as they received them…YOU SUCK !

Thanks Mark and Chuck for all the hard work you do. Please keep up with all the updates and concerns us players have. This game will only get bigger and bigger if you do so.

Also I hope that in the future you print the cards with the correct wording, that would be cool.

Thanks. Christopher

Interesting adjustments – I hadn’t expected some of those (although perhaps they were just corrections since I never really used some of those cards).

One question: is the race limit *only* for the Missionaries? Or will that apply to other races (Lizards, Dwarfs, Elfs, etc)?

First things first…
Thank you MARK VALLEDOR for the FREE cards and getting the ball rollin’ to make this happen(I showed up “2 hrs” late for work ’cause i was DETERMINED to WIN those promo cards! My excuse… I lost the keys to my car! Lol! My girlfriend thought i was a dork! PLEASE make it happen for set 3!!!

When can we expect set 3 to arrive?

and @ #5… Speak for your self, Cause many of us are enjoying this UNIQUE game.

+ IcedDice777 on May 29th, 2008 at 9:00 am said:

One more thing…

Please float the idea around to the Devs Sony to include TROPHIE support for EoJ when SET 3 arrives. I would BE FREAKIN’ AWESOME to unlock a Cool EoJ trophie (To display @ HOME) for COLLECTING “ALL” cards!!!

+ Real Gambler on May 29th, 2008 at 10:42 am said:

OK, we’re getting near perfection here. But I have one last thing to ask: Sony Tournament support!!!

In Europe, they had a few tournaments going, but we still have to see one here in N.A.

A new one is starting soon (only Europeans):
http://community.eu.playstation.com/playstationeu/board/message?board.id=644&thread.id=3465

Any idea if we will have some Sony backed up tournament in N.A. soon? Sure, there’s already lot’s of nice tournaments, even with sponsors for prizes, every now and then (thanks to some great guys, and great sites like Lbshooters) but we are overdue for something coming from Sony themselves, not alway from the community. Shoot, in Europe, they had EoJ silver cases, leather pouch, Tshirts, and all kind of EoJ related prizes. I don’t even want to think what they got in Japan. Hope our turn is coming soon! Though, don’t forget, Tshirt in XL at least : )

Otherwise, great job, great patch, and it’s nice to see you on a thursday! (What? Are you planning a long week-end?)

Hi Mark. Finally, we have 2.01!

I’m still waiting to hear from you guys regarding setting up http://eojinfo.com as an ‘official’ site. Please contact me about it!

Thanks!

Are there going to be more opportunities to get promo cards, or are those that have been sent, completely exclusive to those users now? Just curious from a collector’s point of view… If they are the only of their kind, It would increase the value of the cards on both sentimental, and resell levels, ultimately boosting Eye of Judgment’s reputation, possibly even adding some random word of mouth promotion of the game, I’d like to see more of this in the future if this is the case.

Finally, something for those people who love to log off when they are losing. Funny thing is even with the update it still happened.

I was wondering will the patch only work for online play or not. Because I play this game with me and my brother and we both have some of these cards. So I was just wondering if it is best for me not to download the patch seeing as we only play offline.

@20 I’m from the UK and I don’t remember seeing any EoJ tournaments advertised over here except for the one that started today. I do have some of those EoJ goodies you’re on about though, and Eye of Judgment leather pouch and hideous v-neck t-shirt!

I juz bought my EoJ and i wanted to update it to 2.01, but everytime it update until a point at file 8/1374, it would appear a ‘unable to update’ message and asked to retry, i choose ok to retry and it always unable to download from that point. I’m really sad, was it the server problem? I tried download demos and logging into PSN, all works. Hope i can have helps on this asap. Thanks.
