I'm just confused. How do they expect Magic to

a) retain all its depth
b) be easy for newcomers and to understand from streamers

Like, don't these directly cut against each other?

Magic's a simple game, 2 people take turns playing cards and in the end Divinevert wins 2-0...

Not at all.
Given adequate and easy to use tools, to identify the boardstate, cutting textbox streamlines the gameplay while keeping the depth through mechanical interactions.

A compeltely different story would be changing mechanics to ease the experience, but here it's still about esthetics only.

I'd actually love if they gave full-art on zoomed cards, while keeping a separate textbox on the side.
All that juicy art.

I wonder if there's any chance dr_clawx will make a Duels Helper version for the ixalan Arena beta. It sure would help to make some prototype decks.

Anybody else had this issue?
I signed up for the beta a few weeks ago through the Duels FB page and thought everything was fine despite not receiving any sort of conformation email until I read a few pages back that my Steam Duels needs to be linked to my WOTC account.
I just did that, went back to the Sign Up for the beta button and was sent to a 404 Page Not Found.
Anyone else having this issue?
Has this been discussed and I some how missed it?

:evil:

Steam Duels needs to be linked
404 Page Not Found.


These are 2 different things:

Log onto your WotC account page and check that it displays the correct CSID, DCI and email informations.
CSID is in-game proprietary identification code, nothing to do with Steam's system.

The 404 page and other blank pages errors usually require you to clear cache or just change browser altogether.

You can sign multiple times for the beta; if you update your WotC account information, just sign again for the beta.
They'll look into the signups in a later day, and assign priority accordingly.
So far, by signing up, you've only shown your interest into participating to the beta.

Therefore, check your wotc account information, clear cache or change browser and sign up again.

Confirmation mail should arrive in 3 business days.
It can be hidden in spam or promotions folders.
If you still require support, write them, or give them a phone call (usually faster).

Thanks and gotcha.
Maybe a little misunderstanding. I linked my CSID. I only mentioned Steam because that is the pc platform I have the game in and in my WOTC account information it is called the Steam Customer ID. Had to start up the game and get my code in help/options... customer service.
All my info is on my WOTC account. I'll try clearing my cache and do it again.

Nope. Still an issue.
Cleared and cleaned and still a 404 page not found when I click the sign up for the beta button on the Magic Arena page after I signed into my WOTC account.
Edit: Sent an email to customer service. Hopefully they can fix this.

if you successfully signed up before you don't need to sign up again after changing things like linking duels: https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena-priority-access

Though if you never got an email then I guess there might still be a problem.

Aww, I wasn't able to get into the beta. They put a sign up outside the clubhouse and told me 'No Soupcannons'.

I was looking forward to trying a new thing, not understanding it, wishing it were more like the old thing (which I complained about vociferously), and complaining about the new thing (vociferously).

That's clear discrimination and an open violation of your Civil Rights.
As a human being you must step up and protect the values that those pirates are trying to take away from you.
If you leave so meekly, without making them feel the full weight of their actions, denying you this opportunity, then the next in line that could suffer the same treatment could very well be your children. Then ours.

Beta is a human right.
They should just invest more money in some Aruba servers and let us all play a bug-infested environment, focused on pre-built decks for the next year.

Well, to be fair, I am a sentient, ballistic soup dispenser; I frequently have some difficulty arguing for my "human" rights.

Moving this thread to the new Arena forum. :)

Thank you!
Hopefully this new product from WOTC will have this forum hopping. I am holding out hope.

Until that happens this might as well be called Soup & Barney's Playground

Let's hope they don't force NDA.
Otherwise the vast majority of talks will be on WotC official Beta forum.

Beta?
Yah, I hadn't thought about that. Splattercat and I had a NDA when it came to the redesign of The Mothership when it was still around.
Oh well. After the beta has been worked out we will be the goto.

Nah, I think they will strictly enforce NDA. With so many opinionated voices it is easy to lose control of the whole beta feedback if outside one place.

Also who will they get to beta test their Beta forum?
