THE EYE OF JUDGMENT: Official Online Tournaments Begin Next Week!

Eye of Judgment - Children of Juno Tournament
Hi EOJ Fans,

We hope people have been working on their summoning skills since our last post because we are happy to announce that the Official North American EOJ Tournaments starts this month! You may have noticed our friends in Japan and UK been having their own, now North American players get their chance to prove their skills and their decks!

We reached out to the EOJ community and asked what you wanted the first tournament to be like and got a great response. No Biolith was definitely a common theme as well as limiting Ultra Rares and Mana cost. After considering all that great input, the “CHILDREN OF JUNO” tournament is ready to go live next week on July 17th (6:00 PST) all the way until July 24th! (Check out the official rules after the jump.) You all have 7 days to prove who is the best in North America. The top two players will earn special online ranking titles as proof of their summoning mastery.

We want to thank the great folks at the Official EOJ sites for sharing the great ideas. Be sure to visit them for all the latest EOJ chatter and updates:

We wish everyone luck and be sure to look out for more Official EOJ tournaments already in the works!

Have a great weekend.

– Chuck

Announcing the 1st Official PLAYSTATION®Network

At long last the Official North American PLAYSTATION®Network tournaments for THE EYE OF JUDGMENT™ begins this month!

Starting on Thursday, July 17th (6:00pm PST) for all online THE EYE OF JUDGMENT™ players in the North American region. The tournament will run for one week until Thursday, July 24th (6:00pm PST).

Our first tournament, ‘CHILDREN OF JUNO’, will call upon players to create a mixture of both cards from either SET.1 or SET.2, and face opponents with the following rules:

  • No Biolith Cards!
  • No Ultra Rare Cards!
  • No Cards over 7 Mana Cost!

The top 2 players at the end of the tournament will walk away with eternal glory as well as “exclusive” online ranking titles on the global leaderboards!

Taking part is easy, just follow these simple steps:

  • Log in to PLAYSTATION®Network and go online with THE EYE OF JUDGMENT™ in the usual way from Thursday, July 17th (6:00pm PST)
  • Select ‘Online Tournament’ from the Online mode select screen.
  • Players will be matched up with another player to battle just the same as the regular way of Ranked Match.

That’s it – You’re entered into the tournament! Any points you earn from playing “Online Tournament” before the close of the tournament will contribute to your position on the tournament leaderboard.
The tournament scoring system is exactly the same as that used for regular online ranked matches.
You can play as many matches as you like until the close of the tournament on Friday, July 24th (6:00pm PST).

So start building that perfect deck! For both novices and experts alike, there’s no better time to join in the fun. Good luck to you all and please remember, play fair, have fun and may the best player win!

  • Woot #2! Looks pretty sweet….if it werent for getting ripped when having to buy new cards, maybe I would get this.

  • Mean’t #1 seeing as the last one got deleted! Plus I already have the PSEye, is the game sold as its own SKU without the camera.

  • This sounds exciting! I hope I can hang with the big dogs.

  • I can understand no Ultra Rares.. but no Biolith?! That’s nuts. I’m not sold on these restrictions. ( but I’m playing anyway of course! )

  • This is awesome! I can’t wait for next week to come around!

  • hey Chuck, THIS IS AWESOME! I can’t wait to pwn some noobs in this.

    I have a question. Can we make our profiles private, so our opponents cant see my profile?

    • Not sure about that, let me ask the team and get back to you. Take it easy on the noobs. :)

    • Got an answer for you from the team-

      In EOJ, you can\’t make your profiles private because the information opened before the online match will make a difference among players. Fairness of the online match could not be promised. For this reason, players\’ profiles are opened.

      Hope that makes sense.

  • Alright! A new tournament. Only the top 2 players walk out with a prize?

  • That looks really gay!!!!

  • Cool – official tournaments are neat-o! Glad you are doing it from within the game and not through some external [difficult to navigate] site like Warhawk did with GGL.

  • PS Blog moderator(s), please ban all users who post:

    – 1st
    – 2nd
    – 3rd
    – 406th
    – …

    This has become a frustrating occurrence on many comment-enabled internet venues.

  • WOOHOO a great excuse to start playing again

  • That’s really cool. SO awesome and I wish I could participate. However, I’ll be honeymooning during that time… so I think the new wife would be a little peeved to have me sit in Hawaii with my PS3 & PS Eye hooked up playing EoJ :)

    That being said, I love this idea. EoJ really is a fantastic game and I love to just chill and play it.

    Keep on supporting your product! We love it!

    • What!? What\’s a honeymoon with out some EOJ action? :)

      Not to worry we have more great events planned so you can play when you get back.

      Congrats btw! Maybe your significant other will want to play with you?

      – Chuck

  • Thanks !

    We’re sure starting to see some great stuff coming.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Wow, that sounds so awesome! Too bad I won’t be able to participate in this. Hopefully, you guys will do this again!

  • @beaudreaux
    I take it you are referring to your reflection in the mirror.

    Also has there been any indication as to how well the game sold?
    Had Sony made a cartoon for it kids would have been eating it up.

  • I’m sure this is exciting for the 10 people who still play this.

  • Seems intersting enough.

  • @15 That would actually be a great way to promote the game for kids.

    I bought this last fall, loved it for 2 weeks, then haven’t played it again. Its so expensive to keep up with and I’m not a trading card enthusiast. A very well done game, but so constrained in who it could appeal to though.

  • I really liked EoJ. But this game has gotten too expensive. Still can’t buy boosters from places I frequently shop, like target & Amazon (I don’t mean resellers). And even when you can find them they are kind of expensive. And then there is the price for the game update. Not to mention the fact that Set 2 has so many hard counters for Set 1 that its basically impossible to beat anyone with that has Set 2 cards with Set 1 cards.

    I feel as though even if I buy Set 2 from the PSN store I’ll need to buy a whole bunch of Set 2 cards to have even close matches online. I really think the balance got all screwed up when you introduced 2.

    • There was definitey some balance issue once we launched Set 2 but the team listened to the community\’s comments and did an update that fixed most of the issues.

      It is still possible to be a contender with just Set 1 cards so we hope you come back and give it a try.

  • @ greeble….

    I actually think the same thing…

    Its what great card games like Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon did…
    Thats why i lost interest…and thats why I’m losing interest in this one :(

  • It’s a fun game, but unfortunately I’ve never been a big online gamer (except for that one year with FFXI).

    Thanks anyway, and good luck to all participating!

  • Sorry, but I have issue with this game. After about of an hour and half update load time first use, I could not get the camera to recognize anything (not that I would have known what to play or how)?

    This one will go to GameStop (without the camera, of course).

  • Can we get a general concensus from the industry bloggers, on when/where we’ll either know, or hear of trophy updates to games that are currently available. I should hope that we would be informed on here, as checking each/every game each/every day would be mentally trying, and taxing on the systems reading abilities, but as I’m not entirely sure that’s the case, I wanted to post to gain clarity.

    Forgive me if this has been asked before.

  • @21 Jeigh

    Hey cool, what server on FFXI, I played that for a good chunk of time, I was on Leviathan.

  • FYI, every card that costs more than 7 mana is UR, so the last restriction is redundant =P

  • so, is there a prize. i heard that a warhawk tournament was held and the winners got access to the closed beta of home. that seems like a pretty sweet prize. they could at least give us $30 in playstation store.

  • @25 FilliamHMuffman

    incorrect, there are Ultra Rares that cost less than 7, and Ultrarares are different than Rares, there are three categories

    Common, Rare, Ultra-Rare.

    Ultra Rares sometimes have no picture on them, etc.

  • @ Kedaro

    You misread my post. Not every card that is UR costs more than 7 mana, but every card that costs more than 7 mana is UR. The most expensive card that isn’t UR are the dragons at 7 mana. So having a no UR rule and a no card over 7 mana rule is redundant.

  • “CHILDREN OF JUNO”… Hmm, for some reason that reminds me of that movie :P

  • thatsmartguywiththefro

    sweet! too bad I won’t be able to participate, since I’ll be away from home during that week. :(

  • Its good to see this game gets support. Its kind of a rare gem on the PS3. Sadly I am no where near good enough to be in any tournament.

  • @Depward: Congrats and happy honeymoon.

    @Wondering people: Yes the game is still popular. You can play ranked game anytime of the day with basically no waiting.

    @Chuck Larson: Any chances of getting trophy for EoJ???

  • Its great to see you back Chuck. Is there any news on card pack 3. Plus when the third comes out. Please ask more store to sell the cards. It is really hard to find set two cards.

    Also why no Biolith cards. My deck has over half of Biolith cards. So I have to make deck to enter. That sucks so I will have to pass. Good luck every one that enters though.

    • When we looked at the boards, there were a ton of people who didn\’t want Biolith to level the playing field. Don\’t worry, more tournaments to come with different rules!

  • Quick Questions Chuck?
    I am so glad to hear from you guys, it seems that everything went dark for a while. All my local Wal-marts in North West Arkansas, have clearance out the the EOJ Package for $29.96, thats the camera, mat, game, and starter deck, thats a great price for anyone who has not picked up the game yet. Does that mean, no Set 3, Set 4, etc.,? No more new content for EOJ, just tournaments? Are you working on EOJ 2 yet?
    Thanks for such a great gaming experience!

    • Not at all. Still more great stuff to come for EOJ. Will update you all once we get things locked in. Thanks for all the support. :)

  • I am kind of disappointed with this game
    I thought it would be lots of fun so I picked it up. I was incredibly disappointed with the lack of any interesting single player and even the online is really boring. I only ever have had fun playing this game against a friend of mine when he came over to my place. I have probably played it 4 times total.

    Definitely not dropping more money into set 2 or any other sets that will come out.

    This game has so much potential but it just isn’t fun. :(

  • Eye of judgment needs trophies oh what a mouthwatering idea

  • Thanks guys for the continued support! I’m still not as good to hang with the big dogs so I might wait till the next tourney… =[

    One more thing THROPHY SUPPORT PLEASE!!! We would all love you and it could help bring new players!


  • Thanks Mark and Chuck for all that you do. This should be alot of fun and I look forward to losing 9 out of 10 games.

  • Trophy support would be cool…..but what would it be for….each card owned?

  • Hey guys, great to hear about this online tournament, I hope it goes really well for you all.

    I know I keep harping on this, but I’m really at an road block. Do you all have any idea where I can pick up cards in Canada ? Or should I just give up and move on from this game ? Please help me find a retailer :(

  • @TristanMike

    Rogers Video sells them where I live.

  • @Black_Ryuk: You can already unlock decks in the Player vs Comp section. There’s even different levels, so they could use that to start with. Even better, since we cannot trade our stats with each other, those already unlocked decks, would mean, trophy for us. Bronze trophy if you unlock all the decks in easy mode, silver for normal and gold for ultra-hard.

    Then for sure, they may also add trophy for number of games played. 200 games for bronze, 500 for silver, etc, etc. Some of these could be unlocked right away. Very easy to add trophy, but with this game, even the old stuff would count. (Other games with added trophy, since you can trade save games and stats, you have to start over)

  • just wanted to mention that EoJ really needs ingame soundtracks, id play it more if it had it, besides that hope i can participate

  • Does anyone play online? everytime I check, there’s noone there.

  • @TristanMike, I’ve found several stores in toronto, all of them have been comic stores.

  • Love it. Cant wait. Just dont want to see the 600000000000 dragons now! lol.
