[DEV] 1/19/2011 New Promo Cards and UI changes!

3 New Promo cards are now available on the main page!

In addition we made a couple of changes to the UI.

We have removed the pop up for the skill filters and moved them back to their original position (we kept the new filters that we added last update). They are now expandable and start out collapsed so new players aren’t intimidated by it when they first see it. The game will remember whether you leave it expanded or collapsed.

We also added a search/filter option for Find Rivals in Factions.

[DEV] 5/8/2012 Tyrant Optimizations

We pushed some small optimizations that should help with the bugs and lag that players were experiencing in tournaments and live Arena. Let us know if you guys notice any differences or issues.

We plan to make a full push by the end of the week with more optimizations and changes to achievements to make up for the bugs. Also in that push will be new promo cards.

We are also still considering what to do with components earned in factions.

[DEV] 5/11/2012 New Promo Cards and Bug fixes

- 3 New Promo Cards are now on the front page and in the Featured tab of the store.
- As mentioned earlier this week, we have pushed more optimizations and fixes that should help with bugs players experienced in Tournaments and Arena.
- Fixed a bug that displayed the incorrect number of cards bought in Reputation or Arena reward stores (any players that were affected by this bug your gold for the cards that appeared to have been lost was returned to you after refreshing)
- Removed 10 WB Standard Tournaments from rotation due to lack of participation.
- Achievements have gone through some changes
- Achievements that required players to win battles against players in Arena have changed to participation (this applies to Arena and Tournaments)
- We alsod decreased the requirements for these achievements. If this triggered an achievement for you, you will not receive a pop up. You will get your reward after participating in a battle and then refreshing.
- Other various achievements that required beating players with other requirements now require missions. Additional requirements were adjusted to be appropriate for missions.

In our next update we will change components earned from Factions to be dependant on either Faction level or Loyalty level, whatever gives the highest percent drop.

In addition our Halloween promotion for this year begins today! One change has been live since last update, a beloved card has received a temporary art change, have you found it yet?

Released:
- Battle through 4 terrifying new missions and receive exclusive art for a new Commander card featuring a familiar face.
- Bloodthirsty are invading the Conquest map and altering the flow of battles in horrifying ways!

Included in the update:
- 25 New Missions
- 5 Achievements
- 6 Reward Cards (all Reputation rewards are now Rares!)
- Terminus Tournaments have been added to the tournament rotation

This release also marks the end of our Halloween Promotion, you can still get Halcyon the Corrupt but with different art. A new promotion will start next week which will drop hints as to what will happen next in the Tyrant storyline.

Also one Terminus card received a change. There was a bug with Lightning Strider summoning a unit with Blitz and that unit not activating even though Blitz did. The version that was released was not the intended version of the card, but was not changed before release. The new version of Lightning Strider has Summon Spew Glider on Play and Health has increased from 6 to 7. We apologize for any confusion this causes.
