    It's not fun and confusing. Will not buy it again.

    Ya I want a refund. Absolutely dumbest event ever 
  • After the first couple of matches were a cluster-f, I went back and read the rules closely.  It's different, at least.  It's not the worst thing ever, but definitely won't be for everyone (or for anyone who doesn't study the event rules!).  Though I don't know why they would make another convoluted event instead of doing one of the many things the community has been clamoring for.  A mono-PW event comes to mind. 
  • An addendum to my last post: I'm not blaming you (or anyone else) for not reading the rules ahead of time; I certainly didn't!  There hasn't been an event before where you really needed to.  Typically all you need to know is the Objectives and what the perma-support does.  It's certainly jarring for an event to have a new mechanic out of the blue.

    No worries, I understood what you meant. I read the rules, and was somewhat hopeful for a new event, but after playing a few matches, it dont make sense what's happening on the board and in my hand. I gave up objectives and will just try to get my progression up to the crystals I spent, and wont ever play that nonsense again 
  • Hard to argue with you.  I'm sure some people will have fun abusing the rules (I almost got torched by a Watcher of the Spheres, which gets +1/+1 for each Thopter that shows up on a blue match).  I made a Karn deck with only cards that cost exactly 11 to use for both nodes; that should get me through progression, probably nothing competitive.

    Lol currently frozen in the middle of a match with no combo breaker loop stop. Good to see they really ironed out the kinks in this one, good god

    Yup just had the same thing, forced closed the app, they can keep the crystals at this point, I'm done with it

    I've had several instances on the bottom node where a card was reduced in cost once, but then ceased being reduced further on subsequent turns.  The card was at the top of my hand, so would have benefitted from either cascades or matches, yet remained frozen at X-12, where X is the casting cost. 

    Coalitionmates have reported the same issue.

    Yes in an exciting plot twist, another bug filled event. Guess that's the theme for 2021, make more bugs in already frustratingly buggy game. Keep up the good work dev's. Your great

    I had the same issue on the bottom node. My top card just wouldn't reduced its cost to 0 and then Greg made several blue matches and the cost just went up like crazy.

    I don't see myself playing this event ever again. It's different and I'm sure some people will like it.
    I personally dislike any event where there is a permasupport. Permasupports are in my opinion the worst idea ever. They shouldn't dictate the peace of the matches you are playing. But at least there are some that don't interfere too much with the game. On this particular event every single thing you do is ruled by that annoying persmasupport.

    I understand that they tried something different with Colors of Magic. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose with those bold ideas.

    Well it took precisely one game for me to test that the 'Five Colors of Magic' permanent support isn't working properly. Nice playtesting.

    12 games with these poor rewards? Yeah this one isn't for me. Another event I shall sit out in future.

    The permanent support in the bottom node isn't working right either, is it? I'm getting cards failing to have their costs reduced following a match on many turns. It's hella frustrating, and it's costing me ribbons.

    Anyone know how to play around this yet?

    Playing cards that cost exactly 11 is helping. But I'm getting almost no cards that cost >11 to cast at all. The streaming graphics that are supposed to zip from the match to my hand to reduce a cards cost just don't seem to appear a lot of the times when I make matches.





    Disingenuousness rating of this post: Pretty much zero. Wow, it's almost as if I'm just not being disingenuous most of the time!!!

    Costing you ribbons, how exactly?




    As far as I can tell, you have 80 points, so you maxed it out  :D  probably i missing something here

    Yeah I got lucky! I posted this while in the middle of a game, trying desperately to cast 10 cards that cost 11 or more mana, turn after turn they'd sit in my hand instead of casting, it was making me very frustrated, I took a break to post about it.... but somehow I managed to slow myself down by building over my own creatures and give myself enough time to get full points.






    Disingenuousness rating of this post: Low, but I can see how you might think I was lying, so, let's call this a medium one.

    @Oktagon_Support please save our time and yours and don’t make us write what’s sure to be an extreme amount of tickets because of the untested bottom node mana bug. Please just provide everyone with top tier rewards and end the event now. I love this game and wish there was more care taken to play test it by someone who loves it as much as the community does. I would understand if was some obscure bug, but you can’t cast cards on the bottom node properly. Please do the right thing and don’t make us waste our time writing tickets.

    This event seriously could've benefited from some beta testing! Besides the obvious bugs, there's a lot of obvious balance stuff (like the fact that black vs. black on the top node is a ridiculous struggle to just get anything out on the board at all) that could've easily been tweaked with a bit of early feedback.

    Also, enough with the entry fees already. A gimmicky, incredibly weird event like this is the #1 example of something that should not have an entry fee.
