Here are some of the Casual Match bots, and what they do

Our new Casual Match feature is finally live!

Casual Match is the new Prismata mode, featuring unranked player vs player and bot play.


Casual Match was designed mainly for newer players, as well as the large cohort of players who frequently play Master Bot but don’t play much Ranked Play. The new mode offers more variety, as there are over 25 different unique bot personalities, some of whom are very tough! Wins in Casual Match mode earn you prizes. They also provide a bit of a boost if you’re trying to ascend through the early tiers of Ranked Play mode.


Prismata Casual Match Update

Hi all!

I just wanted to deliver a quick update on how things are coming with our next patch, which includes a massive bot overhaul, Casual Match queues, new achievements, and more. I’m incredibly excited about this update—for one thing, it adds many new bot personalities, and we’ve found in testing that these personalities present many interesting and enjoyable challenges.


Some very good news: thanks to a lot of ground work put in by our AI developer Dave, we’ve been able to extend the scope of these personalities far beyond what we thought was originally possible. We’ve added hundreds of custom bot openings of various types (aggressive, economic, and so on) and created dozens of new bot personalities.

One of the many new bot personalities coming to Prismata soon…
