Patch 9.0

While the tournament may be over, players can enjoy the newly released Patch 9.0. Developers added some of the widely requested changes by players. One request is the adjustments on the appearance of the “Play” card in the Main Menu. Another is "making the game faster by progressing."

Besides those, players can now get the rework for Northern Realms. With this, Charges remain as a mechanic though mainly a self-contained one. Ultimately, the release of this patch is mainly to serve as support for the Price of Power expansion, which you can read more about here.

Here are some of the other things from Patch 9.0:

  • Unranked Standard Mode matches are now shown under Training Mode.
  • Gameplay speed has been improved by decoupling logic and visuals. The game no longer waits for all card visuals to finish before proceeding further.
  • ​Search bars no longer require the cursor to hover over them to be responsive.
  • Three new trees in the Reward Book connected to the Expansion.
  • The "Play" card in the main menu now shows the favorite card chosen in the player profile.
  • New expansion “Once upon a Pyre” introduces 26 cards to the game.
