We've also updated the Known Issues thread: http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=41533

Please be particularly aware of the following issues:

Proceed to Phase shortcuts (F5, F8, and F10) are skipping more phases than intended (Caution is heavily advised when using these shortcuts and their hotkeys)
Scheme incorrectly creates 16 cards instead of 4 (Scheme is temporarily banned in PvE and Constructed Tournaments until this issue is resolved)

I'm no guild master or raid leader, but props to CZE for again doing right to their beloved backers :)


Angel of Dawn’s power now correctly creates a priority stop so opponents can respond
Huge! Did CZE ever confirm that AOD was not working as intended? Maybe I will be able to afford me some angels now? :)

Suggestion:

Would appreciate if the original text of updated cards are being shown together, or just a link to original card image. Without it, I am not sure if the card went through game changing effect, or just wording updates.

Over 1gb, under 2gb was my estimate. Already seen the new cool login screen so it's almost as if Campaign has launched!

It's funny how the fact that Scheme is broken for now is gonna insure i play more Campaign. Man, these devs are crafty. Also, im thrilled that they actually included 10kb's in the patch! its gonna be huuuge!

Still no fix for Brutal Commander?
This bug can crash the whole game (not a small bug).
If you swing with 2 BCs it will use the dammage of 1 of the BCs for BOTH of them when it comes to selecting an Orc from your deck.
Half the time this is too low, & won't let you pick an orc corresponding to the higher dammage.
The other half it's too high, and if you pick the high cost orc for the wrong BC, the game hangs - you have to Alt-F4 out (doesn't respond to any other keyboard shortcuts or mouse commands)

There is also an issue if you swing with a psychotic anarchist, it only allows you to pull 2 cost or less orcs regardless of the amount of damage is dealt by the brutal commander.
