View Full Version : The Next Patch

If the ingredients of the next patch has already been spoiled somewhere, someone please point me in that direction.
Otherwise, let's play the speculation game.

Call me crazy, but I'm thinking we're going to see a full list of cards in this patch. I also think it's possible we'll see some economic development (store, AH, monies, collections - some combination of these).

Booster Draft...because they know that is something a lot of us have been anticipating and I could see how easily that could be buggy if they don't put as much time and muscle as they have been on the next patch (assuming it's taking a little more time because of more muscle to squash bugs.)

Tinuvas
03-11-2014, 10:37 AM
They've been a little quiet about this patch so far based on what I've heard...My gut says booster draft too, which would mess up any productivity on my part for a goodly amount of time, buggy or not. But then again, I've hoped for booster draft in quite a few of the last patches. If it's not quite here yet, ah well.

Tinuvas
03-11-2014, 10:38 AM
I can see the possibility of AH maybe, but monies and collections I think won't be implemented until just prior to closed beta IIRC. Maybe I'm misunderstanding something though.

I'd say somewhere around 12 cards (give or take) and pack opening/pack upgrading. And some bug fixes, of course.

mudkip
03-11-2014, 10:49 AM
4-6 More cards
Bug fixes
New bugs


I would say Draft is a bit soon - maybe in the next two weeks? I would expect some of the assets to be loaded in this patch, but the mode probably wont be enabled yet.

Khendral
03-11-2014, 10:50 AM
Yeah, I would expect draft to come the week before easter holidays.

I just wish they would fix the client memory leak. I'm convinced it has something to do with not unloading images from memory properly, or reloading them from scratch every time instead of caching them.

Damascus

it'd be cool if they removed all the completed tourneys from the list of tourneys so that it would be easier to find the single open one that is joinable (or at least put it on top)

Xenavire
03-11-2014, 11:42 AM
I expect draft to be in by the end of the month. I hope for it to be this week, and it isn't unreasonable to think it might be coming due to the skipped week.

Now I have other possibilities. More cards are a given, and guilds and economy features should be on the way, but booster pack opening should be pretty high on the list too.

Hatts
03-11-2014, 12:16 PM
My guess is 6-10 new cards, some existing bugs fixed, some new bugs introduced.

Gwaer
03-11-2014, 12:39 PM
I don't expect draft this week. I expect most cards to be in. Probably 5ish left to get into the game. We'll see, but I'm not expecting a huge patch. I just think some of the problems remaining were a bit tougher to nail down.

Jinxies

I would expect more build up before the Draft patch, it's probably nothing near as major.

Thrawn

Patch this week will be -

Draft tournaments.
All set 1 cards finished.
Set 2 cards added.
First PvE dungeon available.
AH added.

Actually, if the 'spoiled' list in the deckbuilder app on android is still correct (no cards delayed or removed) then we have about 30 cards to go. Which has me pretty excited.

Werlix
03-11-2014, 06:48 PM
I think at this point simply adding cards should be getting faster for them so I'm almost sure this patch has some significant other feature(s) coming. I'm hoping for draft and/or best of 3 matches in proving grounds.

Axle
03-11-2014, 07:07 PM
You can confirm the same remaining cards as the android in the data files.

I guess the" 90% confirmed" set 1 cards would be the ones under the Set 1 SFX folder that have a sound file and aren't in the game yet.

Sounds effects only apply to 'troops', artifacts, and resources, so sadly this is could be incomplete. Just went to check. Troops has the actions oddly enough, and constants, but I can't tell if it is complete.

Interestingly, of several artifacts currently not implemented, I saw very few with sound effects, so those might still be coming. In particular I note the absence of generals tent, which I would have liked to see live, so hoping that the list is incomplete.

Anything we should be on the lookout for, Shaq? Assuming you don't fix it before it goes live at least. Please say you have accidentally let a box of kittens loose in the client, that would be great fun.

All I need to know, thanks!

It does bum me out though, all the great comedy series come really late where I live. We got the last season (not the newest) of Psych around October last year, and we haven't even heard when we will get to see the current, final season. (Heartbroken btw, Psych could have easily gone on for years.)

Same deal with community. I don't get why we get things like Family guy mere weeks later, and Walking dead two days later, and we can't get anything like Psych or community (even when people beg to get it earlier.)

Even our Netflix doesn't have any Psych or Community (even walking dead for that matter.) Bums me out when I want to avoid watching it online illegally.

... I should stop derailing the thread now. Yay patch!

To be honest, I used an IP mask to check the US netflix with my legit foriegn account. Selection is large but far from comprehensive. Torrenting is a better bet for getting what you want, but I just hate the dishonesty. I literally only 'steal' things online because of availability, and I wish I wasn't forced to. I would happily pay for it instead.

So you aren't missing out if you don't mind torrents.

Ju66ernaut
03-12-2014, 07:56 AM
Be careful torrenting, I personally know quite a few people who have been slapped with copywrite lawsuits in the last few years. It's better to just pay your dues up front than to risk a paying a massive settlement to a copywrite owner. America is the land of the free, but also the land of the lawsuit.

AMEN to that Damascus. All I want to see is the ones I can join. I could care less about the completed crap. Same as in the proving grounds. I could care less about who is playing AI and such in the window in the left. Heck put the AFK'ers over there so they don't clog the people who are looking for a match.
Lord help us when set 2 comes out when it comes to the decks built, I have to keep deleting decks to make it some what manageable. It would be so nice to have tabs to put our decks under even if it was by Champion. This would be helpfull to us as well as the devs so the could know what champions never get used and may receive a boost.

I read a really interesting article once that said Community was a show made FOR nerds, and Big Bang Theory was a show made ABOUT nerds. The jokes are often at the expense of nerds, instead of celebrating them. Community had a whole show dedicated to Dungeons & Dragons, whereas Big Bang will sometimes show the guys playing D&D and the joke seems to be "LOL look board games... NERD!"

I actually enjoy both shows, for different reasons. Big Bang is made to appeal to the masses, with some fan service also put in that only nerd-types would get (this part of the humor just goes over everyone else's head). That's why BBT is so popular, because both sets of audiences can enjoy it completely independent of each other. Part of what makes it so funny to actual nerds is that the guys are all extreme examples of nerdhood, which even we find extreme and foolish (Sheldon is the high functioning sociopath "Rain Man," Howard is the sex-crazed nerd, Leonard is the "straight man" window into the show but he's also the sunken-chested frail nerd who is lactose intolerant, Rajeesh is the ultimate introvert who can't even speak in the presence of women). It's their stereotypical extremes that make them humorous to "regular" nerds.

Xenavire
03-12-2014, 08:33 AM
Ah, nicely put, oss. I can see why BBT irritates me so much while I love community. Never thought that deeply about it (since I tend to avoid BBT and don't give it much thought.) I do wish there were less ads for the show though.

Also, that DnD ep? To hell with accuracy, it was pure genuis. I wish they would do another episode about it.
