New Sets In OCTGN time frame?
« on: September 25, 2017, 11:54:22 PM »
Anyone know or remember about how long it takes for new Mage Wars sets to show up in OCTGN? Looking forward to Academy FM and WD showing up there!

I was watching Tuesday's with Puddnhead 8 and they do seem to be playing with both sets included. I can't seem to find the new cards on the forums, though. Maybe they're still testing?

I don't know the full story, but they seem to be having some trouble with OCTGN updates. They were working on a whole new version of the Mage Wars module for OCTGN, a version 2.0, and were just going to put the new cards in with the release of that, but real life has started interfering with Sharkbait's ability to work on it and he'll have to quit completely here very soon. As he is the main coder for it, this has seriously hampered development. They were looking for someone to take his place. I don't know if they ever actually succeeded in finding someone though.

Zuberi is basically correct.

It's taking much longer than any of us desired or planned. I also want everyone to be able to play with the new cards because they are fun and have the potential to redefine a lot of tired metagame books.

Agreed. I imagine most players would rather have non-automated cards then not have cards at all.
