Changelog 0.131.0

 

Waypoints

  • We’ve added our brand-new set, Waypoints! This includes 56 all-new scrolls and many new rules and mechanics.
  • Added Lingering spells. These are spells that stay next to the board and have an effect over several turns.
  • Added Sifting scrolls. These use a new system for looking at a number of scrolls and picking some of them.
  • Explorer’s packs have been updated to Waypoints (no longer has increased chance to give Rebellion scrolls).

 

Black Market

  • Added the Black Market. This is a player-driven marketplace for Scrolls that’s accessible from within the Store. The Black Market lets you buy and sell scrolls even when the seller is offline.

 

New Trials

  • Added 10 new trials. In some of these trials, you will be using a fixed deck instead of choosing your own.

 

Arena

  • The arena has been given a new look, and single player quick match has been renamed to Skirmish. This overhaul is still work in progress.
  • Added help texts for game modes in the Arena.

 

Judgement

  • Reverted back to using entirely randomized rarities instead of having fixed rarity rows.
  • Increased gold rewards to 2500/1500/1000/500/250/100 (was 1600/1000/800/400/200/100).

 

Features

  • You can now click certain scrolls to bring up more detailed rules. One or more highlighted words in the scroll rules indicates when this is possible.
  • Added a profanity filter to the chat. This uses black listed words compiled from several sources. If you find any words that should not be in the black list, please report them to a moderator.
  • Testing Grounds have been removed and replaced by Quick Match. As the test server is now open for everyone on Mondays, we’ll run future tests there instead.
  • Added new guide popups that are shown the first time you view the Arena, Deck Builder, Crafting, Store or Profile pages. These can be brought up again by clicking the page’s name while on it.

 

Gameplay

  • Gold gain in regular matches has been increased by 25%.
  • You can now sacrifice for Wild up to double your lowest resource (in other words, having 2G and 2O lets you get 4W). Thanks to Newbore for the suggestion!
  • Abilities can now be used any number of times per turn (unless rules specify otherwise).
  • Attack and Health values on units are now tinted when their value has been increased above or below the unit’s default value.
