    The server will be down for about an hour as we deploy a new build. This build contains the latest Mauve Manticore, seven new items from Aloyzo, and our latest set, Castle Mitternacht. Also, Halloween content, which will run through mid-November.

    Some local times:
    • US (PST): Thu 27 Oct 4pm
    • US (EST): Thu 27 Oct 7pm
    • Europe (CET): Fri 28 Oct 1am
    • Australia (AEST): Fri 28 Oct 10am
    We'll detail the release in a blog post, and will make sure all the info is linked when we announce the new release.

    Although this expansion doesn't contain any new adventures, I'm far more excited about it than the last two expansions (although I bought both of them). I only play SP and as there are tokenless items with new cards on, they make every adventure a new challenge as I attempt to find the most efficient way to get to that final chest.

    Whilst high-level items may make MP hunters drool, they are unusable for much of the campaign and so items that add to all of the SP experience are very welcome.

    Many thanks BM!

    Are there new collector achievements for Steam?

    Speaking of SP, and improving the SP experience; are there any plans to allow players to replay the campaign with the original GM dialogue? The dialogue from Gary et al. is a fun part of the game, and I'd like to see it again. It would be really nice to have an toggle option in the options menu, with something like:
    GM dialogue:
    • Always
    • Once
    • Never

    or if those words sound too permanent, perhaps this:
    • On
    • Auto
    • Off

  6. I have wanted this myself. I've actually taken to playing on an alternate account to get my fix once more of Gary & Gang.

    You all planning on surprising Steam users in 3 hours? May wanna rush out a News post there about the downtime. :X

    Eh. Well, I'm out 5 epic chests early. Not used to PST and EST being the reference points for US.

    I guess I'll bite the responsibility for this one, but for my sake, wouldja include GMT in the description next time? It'll remind those absent-minded of us to calculate it ourselves [as I normally do].
    (Or even better, write out the abbreviations, or relate it to server reset.)

    ..and I worked so hard for those chests, only to get duplicate epics. :'(

    :sniffles in the corner:

    This downtime will be delayed by 1 hour and 15 minutes as we need to give the league time to finish.

    Sorry, it's in the thread title :X

    That's the problem. The game itself uses UTC, so that should be more prominent in the thread itself. :X

    I'm just asking if you could try and consider it next time. Shouldn't be any more work for you, if you remember it. :)

  13. Don't open your chests until you see the update announced by the herald on the game opening screen.

    And the new chest shop :)

    :takes notes:
    Good call, I'll use that as my verification step next time. :)

    Shops are a useless basis for change to anyone that isn't obsessive about keeping track of them, sorry.
    For someone who can't tell minor differences in things, such as myself, and who ignores all the shops other than Randi and DD (in the campaign menu), I wouldn't notice that unless I happened to pop into the multiplayer screen and the entire background had been changed.
    Adjusting an existing pattern into a new one for conditional circumstances isn't feasible, but associating a new premise, like Potato suggested, would be quite doable.

    It was just a lot of careless acknowledgements by several users to the timestamp I'd interpreted, this time, combined with my general interpretation issues and lack of an established framework for confirmation. Potato's suggestion should resolve it for the future. :)
