I anticipate a lot of changes from alpha to beta, but there is one thing in particular has me worried about moving forward.
The wipe. When we lose access to all of our 4 of every copy system. This is an inevitability, I know, but recently I thought of a related issue that pops up with it. Our decks. As it has worked up until now, when cards are removed, they are removed from decks, the deck becomes invalid and there is no way to know what card was in that slot before. I know we will lose the cards but It would be nice if there were a way to save deck LISTS without having to go back and recreate them once the wipe hits, if this is even how it will be handled. I have a couple of Quality of Life (QoL) feature suggestions to solve this problem, and I hope some or all are implemented:
1) "Grey out" unowned cards - allow us to add cards we don't own to decks, keep them invalid until we own them. this would allow us to keep the deck lists we have, even if they are all invalid. Maybe even add a % to the decks menu. "you own 78% of the cards for this deck" or something. it would also be awesome if opening packs automatically re-added the cards to your deck.
2) Import/Export deck list button - This one I hope is implemented regardless of issue. if there were a way to click a button and output a text version of your deck, we could save all of them before the wipe hits, and then just re-import them when we own the cards. It could be any type of file, but a text file would also have the added bonus of letting us post decks to other locations easily. it would also allow for player made deck builders that could be used offline when the hex servers are down, or when we have no internet connection, then simply upload them when we're ready to play them.
I hope I can get a CZE response to this before the wipe, so I know whether or not I should start frantically writing down my 100+ deck lists the old fashioned way.
