- Strength of the Sea resource cost was increased from 3 to 4, and its magic requirement was increased from 3 to 4.
- Gate to Nowhere resource cost was decreased from 4 to 3, and its magic requirement was decreased from 4 to 3.

Bug Fixes & Misc:
- Fixed a bug with Asalah, Invoker of Castigation
- Pimped Out Deck achievement is fixed

Enjoy,
Aza and the doc Team

Edit Aza: the premium deck achievement has been fixed!

While it's great to see these balance updates, there is STILL an issue with logging in from the UK and other areas, and we've had no update on why it's happening, and if there is going to be a fix, you can't keep people in the dark for near 48 hours, its awful. Why is DoC burying it's head in the sand? could you at least acknowledge the issue?! :mad:

@Shabbydizzle: have you contacted support for help on that? You should not be experiencing issues when trying to log in.
@Onza_: no news on that yet, we have asked the devs if it was included. I'll update the patchnotes if it is.

Is it possible that you announce the updates couple of days before you introduce them?

You expect pretty much every player from the UK to wait 5 days for a reply from support? i've sent a ticket, but its been 48 hours since i've been able to log in, and now waiting for a response from someone, because we've been completely left in the dark as to why none of us can log in. It has been completely ignored for the past 2 days, and i'm sitting here wondering why nothing has been said.

I miss the Premium Deck bug fix along with the Halloween cards and a Sayama Archer nerf to ambush: 1. Basically we got Ammar fixed and SotS nerfed. But the disconnects, stuck on grey screen and forever loading in the Swisses should be fixed somehow. Yesterday i won 2 swisses without playing a single card in the finals because both of my opponents stuck on loading screen and i got auto victory.

I hope in one of the next patches Wolf Captain will gain 4 health instead of 5. And the Might of Nature will also be changed in any way.

so community managers don't know full patchnotes on the day the patch is coming out? or is it just some false hopes?

good for Ammar (FINALLY),
but I also hope you fixed the sound issues, and I sincerely hope that one day you will increase the cost for Insect Swarm, and also do something about players abusing Fortune cards (maybe introduce cooldown for cards or something like that);
Until then, I've had it with this game.

unhappy about sots nerf..actually why was that done??? there were not many complaints about it
this actually benefits stall decks alot, and is a big disadvantage for sanctuary fast decks...

only way to make gate to nowhere usefull is to change it so that it banishes creatures AT THE MOMENT when they attack not after

you're dumb ulpsz and i guess you play at low ELO to not see SOTS is way too strong as a card as it was prior to the nerf.

I was wondering the same thing. Hadn't heard anything about this.

Notable exclusions:

- Spell Steal transferring Enthrall to another creature, keeping both.
- Spellsteal Wizards taking Cyclone does not give the benefit of preventing attacks on the row the Cyclone is transferred to.
- Mana Storm and Week of Taxes are passive.
- Paos seem to be dying when played into ambush.

Hi, thx for the update.

I can't seem to get it downloaded. I keep getting an "error in patching" message. Any solution for this? My connection is good.

Am I the only one thinking that this nerf of Ammar just made another uselles hero, like Kieran and Siegfried??? His ability now in some cases are worse than generic ability of generic heroes... well not worse, but just... nothing

Well, a potential additional card every turn is not bad at all.
But we will see how it will develop.

A free card per turn if you cast a spell hardly seems useless.

I agree totally, the new Ammar should be still interesting to play but not overpowered in such an outrageous way like before.

It still doesn't work, atleast not for me. -.-
Any yes, I've checked it, all cards are foil and from the base set.

Confirmation confirmed. Still doesn't work. I rebuilt the deck, relogged, nothing. I'm about to ask you to manually give seals, as 500 is quite a big amount ;)

EDIT : it worked after I logged off totally, logged on, and modified the deck I previously created. As I filtered the cards the first time I made it, I'm 100% sure it's not a mistake on my side that prevented it from working the first time. It seems game has still some difficulties to recognize you did the achievements, so if it didn't work the first time for you, try again with various methods until it works / you get bored.

It's semi-fixed. Current workaround is to limit your deck to 59 cards and you will get the Achievement. Valid only for PC, sorry iPAD players. Next update.

11-07-2013, 10:23 PM
Thanks for the hints, I got it to work now, even though in a different way...

I only have 59 foils, so made it a 58 card deck, just to go back to 59, but when I created that 58 deck, I got the achievement. oO

watch some r2p games and you'll see what i am talking about

first of all it is you who is dumb...for not having any idea what you are talking about....

and I am high elo..and play this game from last september...

second ...a card should not be nerfed because of a certain math at a single moment....ballance should be considered globally and THE CARD ITSELF SHOULD BE CONSIDERED -- not how well it is used by certain players in CERTAIN situations...

I watched all r2p games and they are bad and boring, and all players make alot of stupid mistakes (not that I would play much better)...those are ABSOLUTELEY NOT AN EXAMPLE of how the game is evolving

please stop with the silly math...a game is about fun and immersion not TIC TAC TOE

Didn't work for me on the iPad. Made a shaar deck with 59 cards. Double checked they were from first base set and premium cards. Nothing... Added 3 more premium cards. Again, nothing.

And no, only have 1 account and the achievement is still not unlocked on it.
