Posted by on

Patched Today!

We are smoothing out some of the issues in last weeks update. Thank you very much to everyone who has been playing. Record numbers of people are playing and everyone is playing more and longer than ever before! Unfortunately there are some bugs in the cards, as well as matchmaking and rewards having problems. This patch fixes some of those problems.

If and when we have a solution so some of the other problems blocking rewards and matchmaking, we will most likely patch again before the next major update.

Known Bugs

  • Casual matchmaking algorithm does not distribute raids broadly enough among players. It seems to favor the players that play the most more than intended.
  • Reflect attack damage is 0
  • Blizzard golem doesn't debuff 0 attack heroes
  • The timing of the 300 gold award for completion of the tutorial is before the actual award screen pops up.
  • Packs may occasionally appear to only reward 3-4 cards when opened when there are duplicates in a pack. The newly acquired cards should be visible in the Deck Editor, but there is not special indication that they are new yet. Re-logging in might be necessary in some cases.
  • The first craft/disenchant of a session is slow (4-7 seconds usually) due to server connection/initialization. Subsequent crafts/disenchants should be about 1-2 seconds.
  • You will not get a Replay while you are actively playing, even if you receive the Steam notification that you were raided.
  • Display All Unit Info may not show up in-game even though in Settings it is on. Press 'Tab' to toggle it on and off.
