Right, now to be 'that guy'

This is a start, and I suppose it's proof of what has been said by Lightmare so far (still want that thesis ^_-)
However, it can easily slip back to how it was from here.
I suppose what I'm saying is that this is the first step to change.

Now. On those patch notes.
I hope they're actually DETAILED patch notes.
So we know every little change to the cards and whatnot, and exactly what is fixed so we know what to look out for.

Y'know. Details, of which detailed patch notes usually consist of.

Again. This is a good start.
But you need to maintain this.

Also, keep in mind that more transparency (not perfect transparency. We get you have to keep secrets) will help to build hype.
Like this :D

Just being that guy. Someone has to be that guy amidst the hype train.
Speaking of which...

Yay for ZONE-Sama.
Thesis has already been given :)

WHAT!? WHERE! D8
HO-SHI!

How'd I miss THAT D8
Well, that's one thing off the list =D

... THE MEME SHALL LIVE REGARDLESS D8

Still, that one thing doesn't detract from the rest of what I said.

no mention of any fix for matchmaking makes me a sad panda :(

What do you mean by a fix for matchmaking? Whats wrong with it?

Is MM even working? And by "working" I mean matching ppl with similiar ratings. Cos it feels like its just matching two first ppl that queue.

In "Ranked" mode I've been often matched with ppl from top 100, and often from top 20, despite the fact that I started climbing in ranked not so long ago, and my rating are still very low(below 700). Same in"Normal" mode(Infinite, Core, Ranked), even when I was fresh out of Academy & Campaigns, I've been more often then not matched with IW veterans(with profiles full off shiny medals and pimped out decks full off rares, epics and legendaries).

Of course this situation could be a matter of very few ppl playing. But Theremus is suggesting constantly that its not as bad as it may appear(begone steam charts!!!)  ;D


Anyway, wanted to ask if there is going to be a new card set "attached" to that patch or new set is another/separate matter and will be released other time?

The next set will be a separate matter. If we had another set incoming [soon] we definitely would have heard about it by now, and the standard procedure is to have a pre-order period in advance.

Also, did you guys save the stream as a watchable vid for those of us who couldn't make it (and wish we could have)?

The only thing I want to see in the new deckbuilder is the option to search by cost. Especially when more and more sets are released, I want to make my deck with the best cards from each cost tier. I don't want to have to search through the entire Faction just to compare each 3 cost card or each 7 cost card. I want to be able to search for only the 3 cost cards and so on.

I can't wait for this patch and thank you for all the hard work you people from Lightmare are putting into this game.

I also hope that we get the ability to search by cost, there are times where I'm like "ehhhh, my 2 drops are looking a bit too low" and it would be nice to filter/sort all the cards by cost so that I can easily see all the 2 cost cards, and decide which is the best for the deck I'm building.

0.98 Early Pre-Gold Preview

-   The deckbuilder has been totally revamped. [Yes, you can now choose which faction multi purity commanders represent.]

-   Tons of card bugs have been stamped out. [Yes, Solace’s Gate is fixed]


So happy to finally have hybrid cards working properly. I've got a Defiant Hermit deck that's been waiting so long for the chance to team up with Verorian Hydra and I've also wanted to try an Unending Drone deck with triple Infested Savengers in command. Does this affect both hybrids and mercenaries or just hybrids though?

Also, is the issue with Solace's gate just referring to its clipping issue or also to the fact that you can't target cards in anticipation that they'll leave the support zone?

The Matchmaking is fine, I think the problem with that is the amount of players with certain ratings and decks they are using at the moment once entering queue.

New deck builder, you should have 419 cards memorized by now.

Also who needs a deck builder when everyone can just copy someone else's deck online.

Great News for everything else though, Yay!
