Over 700 of you spent your Saturday playing in our stress test tournament across 10 rounds with a cut to top 8. From our end, it was very successful. We saw a few players mention in-game messaging delays-- like games taking 30 seconds to start-- but overall, everything went smoothly. Plus, during that time we had players in arena and playing the game in other ways and that went smoothly as well. This is huge for the game, as we can now reliably hold much larger tournaments than previously possible. Our teams also identified a few bugs that need fixing, primarily one with the way that tiebreakers are done and standings are displayed in very specific, corner-case situations.

Thanks for the update. That goes down as I think the shortest update we have had?

I noticed the decklists are up - but you might want to review the sockets. I am pretty sure the top 8 did not have a deck running Xocoy (a PvE card.)

That paragraph was not the entirety of the update :)

Thanks. That's an odd one. I'll let the engineers know.

Thanks for the update, would be nice down the line if we could import deck lists into the client but I am sure that will come in time.
The stress test data does overwhelmingly majesty so I see why the outcome was a ban on TM. Gaunlet is super varied right now not sure that's actually a positive but its firing faster :D

Some stats: 158 players played Cressida out of 748. That's 21,1%
7 out of 8 in the top 8. That's 87,5%
23 out of 32 in the top 32. That's 71,8%

I'd live to see stats for top 64 and 128 but that is probably not gonna happen.

I really enjoy updates like this, where a handful of cards are examined and possibilities considered.
Any possibility of a Tinker Tuesday kinda updates where the devs take a look at some cards (or the meta) and let us in on some cool interactions? You could even tak 'em onto the ends of the already regular friday updates.

And how can this link help with determining % of cressida decks in top 64 and 128?
