Title: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: sIKE on May 18, 2015, 08:42:45 AM
I spent some of the weekend updating the OCTGN card database with the new cards from the Arena box. I have just updated the card data not the art at this point. There are 14 cards that had some form of updated text on the cards. Only one (Skeletal Sentry) had an updated Subtype. Enjoy!

Bear Strength
Temple of Light
Hand of Bim-Shalla
Rhino Hide
Battle Fury
Dispel (Same As Promo)
Dissolve
Force Push
Minor Heal (Same as Promo/FvW)
Teleport

Updated Card Text

Gate to Hell
Skeletal Sentry
Decoy
Reverse Attack
Reverse Magic
Helm of Fear
Suppression Cloak
Banish
Battle Fury
Dispel
Explode

Thanks for the catch, I do not have the 3rd edition. Looks like I am an old school 1st edition type...

The same could be said for the card text, I have the 1st edition myself along with the Card DB as reference so any of these could of been updated in any of the following editions. With the next release of the MW module on OCTGN the card data will reflect the latest and great card text.

When you say "data" ... does that mean that the card text, attack bar, etc. shown on the like is still not up to date?

Card data is any of the text you see on a card. Almost all of the cards here have the "card text" section (bottom of card above the flavor text) updated with mostly clarified wording. Several of them were as simple as changing out the word "hidden" for "casting".

I asked because I heard that the new Gate to Hell affected the entire arena now, but the old text appeared to be on the card when I asked. Thanks for the quick reply!

Unless... the card database is not the OCTGN database... so maybe I was looking in the wrong spot.

I have updated the OCTGN Card DB but it has not been released yet, soon though.....

Those card updates (Gate of Hell, Malacoda, etc.) are just updated with clarificatioms from the rules supplement, or it's some new errata?
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release

Gate to Hell attack changes from targeting two zones to the Arena.

I noticed that Boardgamegeek.com is calling Arena the 2nd Edition, 4th Printing in their database. Not sure of their criteria for new editions, but it would be nice if we all used a common standard for talking about the different versions.

I don't recall any version information printed on the new Arena product, but perhaps I missed it.

Not core set, but one of our regulars picked up the new printing of Forcemaster vs Warlord and noticed an updated Goblin Builder (yeah) but with an unfortunate typo (oops). New text reads:

Repair
Remove 1 damage from a Corporeal conjuration in, or boarding [sic], his zone.

will all new cards & rulls versions be edited in an "official supplement" soon?
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Laddinfance on June 17, 2015, 08:26:57 AM
Yes. I'm very sorry this has been taking much longer than I'd hoped. However, this will all be updated.
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Kitarja on April 11, 2016, 07:54:31 PM
After quite some time I come back to this topic. Is there any chance for an update? I checked the Card Database and the download section, but still no new supplement and a lot of card changes are still not updated in the Database :'(
I know this might not have a high priority, but its been so long.
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Laddinfance on April 12, 2016, 08:03:06 AM
Right now there are a couple things that are very high priority. That being said, by the end of the month they should be done, and this is one of several projects that I want to catch up on before we start another big project. I'm sorry it has been so long, but there is a plan to fix it very soon.
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Kitarja on April 12, 2016, 08:35:04 AM
Ok thanks for the fast reply. I ask again at the end of the month, if it's still missing  ;)
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Laddinfance on April 12, 2016, 09:13:07 AM
Deal. Hopefully we'll have more progress to show you by then. If not we should be right in the middle of working on these things.
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Dragonoverlord666 on May 20, 2016, 02:17:09 PM
Could it be that there is still no update of the renewed cards?
Or am I mistaking (in that case my apologies) and could you plz post link.
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Laddinfance on May 20, 2016, 02:35:01 PM
Finishing up the last project has been far more time consuming than I'd hoped. However, the good news is that we're almost done with it at the moment. I've tried to build some time into my schedule to help catch up on some of the things that need updating for all of you. I'm actually pretty excited to get back to that.

Oh wow we missed this birthday.... 18.5.2015 this thread was born. Exactly a year now.
(Yes, the good thing is that there is a lot of fresh stuff coming soon, but it really is a long time for some updates)
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: exid on May 20, 2016, 11:54:36 PM
if we could get an "oficial supplement" for the cards up to FiF before Paladin and Siren is released, it would be great!
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Dragonoverlord666 on July 09, 2016, 01:07:33 PM
So I've been searching through the forum and I've come across a few updated cards.
I would really like to know ALL the cards that have been updated so far from a reliable source (preference: PDF file) so that I can print them all out and look them up as easy as possible. I havent found any such a thing, except for the errata cards at the arcane wonders site, but this only included 3 cards.
Does anyone know where I can find this or if not existing,could this please be made.
Thank upfront.

ps: Is the Codex version 2.0 up to date?
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Laddinfance on July 09, 2016, 02:28:39 PM
Compiled Codex 3.0 is nearly done. It should be posted next week.

It should have been posted already. I'll see what the issue is.
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: exid on August 06, 2016, 04:08:13 AM
and about the rules supplement, will you edit a new version?
(with cards errata, wisard errata, official rulings, etc.)
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Laddinfance on August 07, 2016, 01:45:59 AM
I am working on a new one.

Would it be possible that you post a link in this thread when the new codex is available? :)
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Laddinfance on August 25, 2016, 08:26:09 AM
Yes, I'll make an announcement. I'm very sorry it has taken this long. I have to poke the people responsible for posting this in the resources and downloads page.
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: Donovan on August 25, 2016, 08:42:19 AM
Is it also possible to have a document showing the differences between 2.0 and 3.0?

People in non-english speaking countries would like to update their localized version as well.

Another option is to post resource files like this to BGG. If AW assigns a liaison to the BGG Mage Wars sites the official content can be posted by the community and players can have access faster. Players are available to help you promote the game in this way. Zuberi, myself , and a few other ambassador/play testers are regulars on BGG too.

Just a thought ...

Post by: Kitarja on September 09, 2016, 09:01:04 AM
Is there any news about the Rules Supplement or the Card Database update? I had really hoped we get it before PvS releases, but it doesn't look likely, or?

At least we have a new Codex now, but I don't understand why that got a higher priority than the Rules Supplement, which is so much more important in my opinion.

Post by: Kitarja on September 09, 2016, 01:19:04 PM
That made me smile ;)

I think there are enough people by now who would love an updated version of the Supplement and the Card Database. And I'm mostly quiet but every few months I appear here and ask how it's going. Maybe at some point I will come back and be surprised, one never knows, but my hope is slowly fading  :-\

Serious, there us no way to find a gate to hell how it is worded now anywhere. Not on AW website, no pic in this forum, no pic in the database nor app. I haven't looked at Octgn though.
After searching much too long I found just a hint from sIKE that the attack has changed it's radius of destruction. This is out for years now! How is it possible that this is readable nowhere? It takes a minute to change a picture in the database here. Really incredible!!!
So whats the wording now?
PLEASE update your carddatabase!
Title: Re: Card Updates with the Arena (4th Editon) Release
Post by: RomeoXero on September 16, 2016, 07:43:55 PM
They are trying bro. Theres like 5 people who work directly for Arcane Wonders. It's a really small company. It's amazing that they've put out something we all want so vehemently, and i know sometimes it's frustrating that we don't have absolutely everything that we want all the time, but they ate doing there level best, all the time. Just try and remember that they've got a LOT of irons in the fire and Aaron is only one man.

Sorry for being rude yesterday and thanks for the quick responses RomeoXero and iNano. Especially for the picture.
I get that AW is a small company and that we all demand  a lot. But these days I read Aaron is already working on a new release while there's just little progression with all those urgent updates. I miss some focus.
Now here is a foto with both new and old gate to hell. To open WordPress (or whatever) and enter this picture to the website honestly takes 1 minute. I mean come on. That's possible even for a small company with lots of things to do ;)

Edit:
It is always easy to be disappointed. I want to say I totally love the game and appreciate the work AW is doing! I would not sit in bed for 30 minutes to search for a card update if the game would not be that amazing. I am just damn hooked!
Still I think AW needs to straighten their timeline.

Post by: Lord Nikuza on September 18, 2016, 05:45:48 AM
Thanks for the picture iNano. Would it be possible for you to post some of the other cards that changed in the new version? That would be amazing :)

Btw - nice buff for the gate, I think I'll try a new spellbook with it  ;)

@iNano - A banana sticker for your trouble. Thank you for your assistance here. I was at a convention this weekend, and just got home this evening.

@Bigfatchef I'm sure my words hold little weight, but if it was that simple for me to change the picture in the SBB I would. However, that system is a black box to me. I do not know how it works. Granted, I've never claimed to be a computer wizard, well at least not since we moved past DOS. I know it's frustrating, and I'm sorry for that.

Yes, I'm already working on the next set. That's because I believe it is crucially important that Mage Wars players not wait 2+ years for the next set. The single most important thing for me right now is trying to ensure that Mage Wars is able to put out some content at a regular pace. The support to go with that is important, and I'm working to catch that up as well.

Post by: bigfatchef on September 19, 2016, 04:08:53 AM
Thanks for your response Laddinfance! To update the sbb with its card database seems crucial to me. I hope you have somebody in your team that is looking into that black box and manages this fot you.

But what I wanted to say in my earlier reply, is that it would be very helpful to take pictures of changed cards and put them at the doenload area (http://www.arcanewonders.com/resources-and-downloads) and that is no blackbox for you (writing spoilers there) .

I think many of us players would be glad to see all changes to cards available somehow. Don't think about pdf perfect design papers. A bunch of pictures would be enough to look them up until your data is updated. I'd say form follows function in that deeply hidden case that no newbie would find.

I've done mockups of the German cards (http://www.foren.pegasus.de/foren/topic/27275-errata-jpgs/).

Perhaps somebody can do the same for the english cards?

I don't own them, otherwise I could do it for them as well.
