    Incorrect. Cards, bug fixes, and the like are actually handled mainly by the client. That would mean updating the phone app fairly regularly... which sadly isn't possible with some platforms.

    what i can't understand is their refusal for errata in the digital game. they can just treat the digital and physical game separately. or, just allow the old cards to become limited edition cards, thereby increasing their value. then new cards will be produced and players will again buy them. seems like win-win to me.

    if they allow for constant errata (say monthly), we can somehow find a balance that would make most cards viable.

    It is one of my greatest hopes that in the future, mankind achieves enlightenment so high we would not need rules, laws, or government to keep the peace and govern ourselves. By our own motivation and volition, we would do what is right and just because it is right and just. This is the central tenet of anarchy. Not chaos and lawlessness, but free will and self-actualization.

    What does this term "errata" mean?

    Its basically a list of changes. Its used in games like Magic to balance cards that are printed, from my understanding, its usually for balance issues or corrections. Like if X card needed 2 less health, there would be an "errata" that states that in standard play, it is to be treated as if it had 2 less health printed on the card itself.

    In a digital game, we could just make that change. Shadow Era at this point in time is both a physical and digital game, so when we print a set we want to never have to change the cards again.

    Something that would also help Wulven out is something similar to Riot's tribunal system that allows players to review reported cases (this would include a report button) to see if a person should be punished or pardoned. This would definitely help to improve the general QM experience.

    This. As new editions come out, re-working and re-balancing is going to be essential. As much as beta may help, it will no doubt take opening it up to the public to really get it good and balanced.
    Having printed cards shouldn't stop them from doing that, unless they are very very conservative about waiting to print cards.

    If I didn't like the direction Shadow Era was going, I wouldn't have dropped 5G's on the Kickstarter.

    The game has potential and quality. People are too impatient. We now live in an era where a new TCG or even app is being launched every few months. Yes, something new and maybe more enticing might pop up, but to be honest, im not even a fanboy and SE is going places. Hearthstone is only going to do decent because of the WoW background it has, which was still mediocre.

    People need to calm there tits. I believe 5 of us get to make heroes. We're watching, we're listening. The end is far from over. Free for all still hasn't been launched nor has campaign. Id rather have a long balancing beta than a shitty "just another expansion" launch.

    As for the physical game, yeah, I think the digital should be priority myself. Because honestly, whos going to play the physical when the digital is always going to be a step ahead? Next time around, both need to be launched at the same time if possible. But, I suppose we ll see what happens.

    This does not describe anyone that complains about Wulven time. Anyone remember when the first mention of the player auction house was?

    If MtG that have been famous with their large number of physical player can done so many errata, why wulven physical cant? (or there's still a chance of that anyway?)
