Hi, thanks for choosing to be a part of this playtest. I'll try to keep it as brief as possible, but there're a number of things we are and aren't looking for, so please read this post carefully before posting your feedback. Thanks! What is Castle Mitternacht? Our next expansion, Castle Mitternacht is a massive set of cards & items. Approximately 35 new cards and 250 new items, it'll really shake up PvP and also give campaign-only players a lot of fun new tools. It won't be paid: all of the new content will simply be added to shops & loot tables. You'll be able to buy chests from the Mitternacht Chests Shop. How to participate 1. Log in to the test server (http://test.cardhunter.com) * instructions here * if you had to register a new test server account, play through the tutorial until you can access PvP. There is no cheat to skip the tutorial currently.2. Once you are in the test server PvP lobby, hit f1 to open the console and use the 'everyitem' cheat any number of times to fill out your collection of items. 3. Build parties, find opponents, and test! Nature of Desired Feedback What we're looking for: balance problems. We want to know which new card(s) or item(s) are going to be problems in the constructed PvP environment. There is some selective power creep and some entirely new effects and what that means is that we can't know for sure there are no issues. We also pushed some cards and items in order to increase the chances that a particular archetype might be competitive, but it's possible we went overboard in some cases. So we'd love feedback you have on the balance of the new content only as it relates to PvP. That said, we're only really interested in feedback based on played games, see below. What we're not looking for: Castle Mitternacht's design is done; we are not going to change anything drastic in terms of the set's theme or main mechanics. In other words, while we love hearing how our players feel about our content, we're not actually interested in how you feel about the theme, the art, etc., as part of the playtest. We are also always interested in any bugs you find. Check our Known Bugs thread before posting though. Quality & Format of Desired Feedback I mentioned above we don't want feedback based on speculation, but on played games. This means that for us to value your feedback you need to have played with whichever cards you tell us are broken. This forum is not for armchair balance discussions. To submit feedback, simply make a new thread in the Castle Mitternacht subforum. Include the following in your writeup: * number of games * list your opponents, and describe what kind of decks they were using * describe the party you used to test, and include its items & cards in a spoiler tag. (Use 'partyanddecksbbcode' f1 console command from the Keep.)

The more detail, the better. If you're trying to decide which new content to test, look over the forums to see if there's anything that hasn't been reported on, or anything that you feel hasn't been tested enough. Here's an example of high-quality feedback: Maniafig's Measurements Playtest Rewards For every five games you play and do a writeup of, we will give you 1 Castle Mitternacht epic chest upon release. (So you can earn more by playtesting more.) Games played against AI like Cardotron do not count! Note that it's not particularly valuable for us if you just play 100 games and don't give us any meaningful feedback, so if you're hoping to win a lot of chests please put a lot of thought into your writeups. Playtest Duration Unless things wrap up smoothly before then, we will be playtesting all of October. There will be a brief interruption in mid-October when we use the test server to prepare and launch our October release (Mauve Manticore, Aloyzo's Arsenal, Halloween Store, Halloween costumes, Halloween PvP boards). # I am leaving this thread open in case there are any questions about playtesting, what kind of feedback we're looking for, etc. Please do not use this thread to give us feedback, thanks!
