    Mac App Store version is old

    I installed SE from the Mac App Store and it was 1.5. Today I received a message that I need 1.6 to continue playing. The version in the App store is old.

    Also, I spend a decent amount of money on boosters and didn't realize that 1.5 wouldn't unbox foils. Why would the client-side code impact whether or not the card is foil. If that decision is client-side, doesn't that open it up to be exploitable?

    Apple in general has been really bad about approving updates and releasing them in their app stores. Before synced releases, iDevice users had to wait months, and there has been at least one occasion where Apple lost the submitted update and Wulven had to update again. Apple is even worse with the Mac store updates, which is why Wulven offers a download here.

    As to the foils, each software version links to its own server. Foils were not implemented until version 1.6. Ergo, a 1.5 version will not get foils, nor will a 1.5 client be able to handle foils if you were to get them through the 1.6 web client and then return to your 1.5 client.

    Highlighted this issue last week.
    Been playing with 1.5 on my Mac until I noticed there is a download file for v1.6 few days ago. Luckily enough, I didn't buy much boosters.
    Its a good thing that they sent out the message, otherwise, many people would be stuck playing in v1.5, especially in the Quick Matches page...
