Nothing about Connection stability or Duplicate login or getting the message the moment u disconnect instead of 5 minutes later... thats the stuff that is annoying as hell and will most likely ruin my set 2 hype -.-

Indeed. I cant judge the state of the Servers but I had the hope that those problems (last 5 drafts I had a bug/disconnect/whatever) would be addressed in the patch(notes). I mean srsly im more in touch with the support team than with most of my friends ;)

Its specifically mentioned that all transforming cards with counters lose them correctly now. Cards are not mentioned by name though. Get hype!

(Until you see all cards now say "this." Hype lost)

I deplore bad grammar and poor implementation of grammatical concepts.

It should be "this card." It's far more clear, is grammatically correct, avoids all of the "this's" nonsense, and still fixes all of the problems they were trying to fix. There is absolutely no downside.

I'm not normally one to play grammar police, but since you deplore bad grammar so much, I thought I should point out that you probably meant to say "There are absolutely zero downsides." (Similar to how you would want to say "There are zero apples on the table" as opposed to "There is zero apple on the table.")

As far as the cards go, I'm fine with "this" as it's being used, but agree with you about "this's".

Touché. :p

I meant to say "no downside" but was thinking of something else and wrote "zero downside" instead. ;)

"Air Elemental and Lightning Elemental PvE cards currently are not displaying their game text"

I thought we were not supossed to know the text on those cards yet...it would be nice to know what they do :D

Added:

Tiaanost should read “When Tiaanost deals damage to an opposing champion, void target opposing card and each opposing card with the same name in all zones.” This prevents Tiaanost from voiding herself.

Edit: Tiaanost is female!

Hey guys, what are the drafts going to be like from today through Friday when the release celebration starts? Are they going to be 2 set 2 packs and 1 set 1? Sorry, I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere.

Noted. Thanks.

Also added:

Tournament pop-up reward screen at the conclusion of a tournament displays the packs won, but not the quantity of packs won. Players can go into their in-game mail to verify the quantity of packs received.

Considering Water Elemental isn't listed, I guess that means we get to find out what it does. And potentially what the Set 2 WoF PvE rewards do as well!

Getting rid of "this" and replacing it with "this card" is the new "put thresholds back on the left."

I hope all I need to do is rage about it everyday to get it changed.

Not saying this could ever happen... But what if there was a way to turn a card into something that wasn't a card? like "Turn this into a piece of equipment and equip it to your champion'.

Kinda screws up any edge interactions there, for an out-there example. :p

We appreciate the constructive feedback players provide, but I don't think that will overall be productive.

Players can't filter for Shattered Destiny Booster Packs in the Auction House. Current work around is to use "set 002" to filter for Shattered Destiny Booster packs in the Auction House.

Dry those QQ's, that's a good thing because you can save your packs for the event!

Well then I will only provide the most constructive of criticism for the use of "this". Though keep in mind we just got AA Baby Yeti's after the second ridiculous call to Nerf baby Yeti. So clearly nothing is impossible anymore ;)

Different people have had the same issue (as you can see in this (http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=39528) topic). Performing a clean, full reinstall of HEX will resolve the 'black patcher' problem:


Uninstall HEX via the Control Panel
Wipe all remaining data by deleting the HEX folder under your Program Files
Restart your computer
Reinstall HEX using the latest patcher you can download from hextcg.com/client-download/ (http://hextcg.com/client-download/)


EDIT: Seems like this fix does not work for everyone. If it is not helping you, keep track of this (http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=39572#post440413) topic, where DataDragon (hopefully) will be able to figure out the problem and offer you guys a solution.

2 vs 1 works well too. But there doesn't seem to be a way to search for Set X primals or boosters specifically. 1 and 2 work, booster and primal work, but they don't work together.

ossuary

I have it working fine by searching for "1 b" and "1 p" for set one, and "2 b" and "2 p" for set two. "2 p" shows me just Shattered Destiny primals, no problem. Make sure you're not using rarity or set filters, they work really weirdly or not at all when you're not searching for cards.

Glae

Huh. "Primal" and "Booster" didn't seem to work, at least on Tuesday night.
