    Looking forward to it, especially to see how the new items affect the pvp season.
    Now that we're almost there, do you have any estimate on whether (or how soon until) you'll be working on balance of the base set content? Or is that just not in the cards at all? I'm not super worried either way, just curious :)

    It's something I'm still thinking about. I'll be curious to see if and how the new cards/items affects things.

    Is it possible to see the deck's cards before playing a fixed league so that players don't have to waste time reading them in the match? Specially those that aren't normally playable. Because I saw the geomancer's video and there are quite a few of these exclusive cards. I'm asking because the time players will have is pretty reduced.

    Good point, maybe they could be on the league webpages?

    Yes, I've been meaning to do this, but just haven't got to it. Hopefully I can find time before tomorrow.

    Just got the email. Grats, guys. Looking forward to seeing what's new.

    Edit: The linked video was really adorable by the way, and I mean that compliment in the manliest way possible. :)

    Only played the first adventure so far and then got the bundle of new maps. You guys completely lived up to my expectations and that is a big compliment because i have great expectations of you all and of this game.

    PS the "boss" really made me smile who ever came up with that double pats on the back.

    Edit 1
    The first map on the first level 18 is of questionable difficulty i have to say. The rust monsters seem to have too many free attacks in combination with too many move 5 draw 2 cards or just too many cards in general.

    Also won every match in my first league woo

    Edit 2
    2 leagues 2 excellent costumes lets keep this rolling! Also huzzah to i assume Ben for the cool prize models very nicely done.

    Edit 3
    Figured out the rust monsters... Sneaky sneaky bluemanchu.
    And 3 leagues 3 figures now to see if my luck keeps up and i get geomancer as well.

    Wozarg, how long have you been a "Thaumaturge"? That's a new one to me.

    Nope, since before.

    Actually I noticed it happen—When I hit 113 trophy points, graduating from a Cerulean Dragon to a Thaumaturge, a bunch of people with 83 trophy points all got the new title with me. It was kind of weird. :p

    I was telling him when i got it not when the title was implemented.
