 Hotfix #3 is finally here, thank you for your patience. The patch will be first deployed on Steam, and later on Xbox (once Microsoft approves it).

  • Cast time delay has been reduced (code has been optimized to shave off a small delay when casting card that would cause card plays to be slightly delayed by a few frames compared to 1.0).
  • Feedback: Mana is now removed upon playing cards, (and not when they are summoned/cast), and visual feedback is snappier, which makes playing cards feel more responsive.
