    • Completely redesigned Jovana and Yurik:
      • Reduced HP slightly for both.
      • Jovana’s racial is now Walpurgis Night. She has a tiny deck of 5 cards, including Arrogant Armor, which she replenishes every turn. Now Walpurgis is a guarantee every round, though she and Yurik are immune by default (unless you get priority and discard her armor, somehow, before she plays Walpurgis). This is definitely gimmicky but it’s more consistently gimmicky than before, and that means counterplay is more consistent. Also the fact that she has a Mandatory Action racial means that EVERY ROUND you’ll have at least 2 actions before any enemy can attack you.
      • Yurik’s deck is now 4 cards - Arrogant Armor, Nimble Strike, Invigorating Touch, and Vampire’s Kiss. He will always have Arrogant Armor in hand at the beginning of the battle to avoid Walpurgis.

      • by item count
      • by power and rarity at the same time
    • Timestamps are now shown in chat.
    • Pings are available. You can now ping/mark the desired tile in co-op by holding CTRL + left mouse.
    • Added the account edit function. You can now delete your account or reset it at any given time. The “Edit” button is accessible from the “Select An Account” screen.
    • Added “partydiscordcode” command.
    • You can now unequip all items from a specified character in deck building by using the “Unequip All Items” button.
    • Items will be now presented in stacks. The items can still be divided into smaller stacks by holding SHIFT and clicking the left mouse button.
    • The Windows client has been updated to the 64-bit version.
    • PvP maps will now change every 15 days.
    • Purchasing chests for gold requires confirmation.
    Bug fixes
    • Minor text fixes :)
    • Fixed the Adventure Exhaustion bug that was caused by staying in the Daily Deal shop in and after the server reset.
    • Fixed a bug where kicking a player from the team was causing a black screen for other team members.
    • Fixed a bug where destroying a character was causing issues with displaying empty slots icons for other character.

    Nice. Quick Question:

    With the new option to reset accounts, will that clear inventory as well as map/quest completion history? Or just the latter?

    The account reset will work in the same way as it is right now (by sending us an email :) ). You will lose your entire progress - item collection, characters, quests, gold but all DLC/pizza purchases will be automatically re-credited back to you. Of course the free pizza from the events or past giveaways will be lost.

    Heh. I just did The Spreading Blight for the first time yesterday. It took me several tries; and I found I had to specialise my equipment a little bit for each of the fights. The update sounds like it would make it significantly easier!

    This, I think, was just a few hours after I made a long post which including complimenting Knights on the
    fun new handicaps they subtly added into Ranked. I know I'm imaging it, but it sort of makes me feel like
    they do read my posts. (But after giving an extra moments thought, it seems more like they didn't even
    realize all their new handicap cards would show up as handicaps, which is bit hard to believe...)

    I wonder what will happen to the form cards. I mean, more forms is interesting, but "Sculpter" doesn't
    seem to really fit the movie-monster or Walparis-Night card theme that attaches them randomly to players.

    This has been discussed a lot; the radiation cards from EttSC were just never future proofed and now they are.

    And Walpurgis Night only attaches Mitternacht forms now, as per the changelog. :)
