    Deploy is out with fixes for this in the deckbuilder, card listing, expansion guide, and decklists.

    If anyone notices anything funky anywhere else, please let me know!

    Hey all,

    Going to get something out as soon to fix this.

    When I initially looked at Blizzard data for the dual-class cards when reveals started, it showed they had flagged them as a "primary class" and then as the multiclasses. I wrongly assumed it was going to stay this way so our data import from the client today flagged all the dual-class cards as neutral!

    This will be a fun update.

    Added in that missing thread prefix, thanks!

    To quote myself, I know you saw this already, DoubleSummon.

    Hey all!

    We'll have some site-wide rewards available for voting on and commenting on the card threads, so be sure to get into that! Going to try and get the info up on that later tonight but tomorrow is more likely.

    Thanks for using Out of Cards as your fastest Hearthstone card reveal season site!

    Seriously though, we watched the competition. We were first in 99% of reveals to get the information up. No plans to ever change that!

    Nice! But the page is not shown in the main menu under "Scholomance Academy"...

    This, and a link to the bingo, will be added to the navigation in our next site deploy (today)

    Hello Monday! We've got a new Arena feature for Hearthstone and some quality of life updates for personalized dust counts.

    New Features

    Hearthstone Arena Impact

    • A new system that allows us to rate cards for a new expansion and to discuss those ratings.
    • You may have seen this go live over the weekend along with a new Arena button on our navigation. Now it's ready for prime-time =)
    • Check out the Scholomance Academy Arena Impact page.

    Changes

    Hearthstone

    • Personalized Dust Costs for decks have received some updates!
      • Added to deck embeds (news articles, forum posts, comments).
      • Added to the deck listing. You can't sort the column since these calculations are client-side.
    • Added "deck copy" buttons to deck embeds.
    • Cards listing now has a "standard" filter.
      • Make use of it alongside the collectible filter to see all the cards available in standard.
    • Added a sidebar image for our Scholomance Expansion Guide & Scholomance Arena Impact to the Hearthstone Portal.
    • Reworked the coloring on our fancy class headers in expansion guides.

    Bug Fixes

    General

    • BBCode no longer renders when quoting a comment.
      • This fixes an issue where you'd receive rendered BBCode when quoting someone and the result was sometimes less than ideal. It also sucked because if you quoted a deck embed, that deck embed would never update again since it lost its BBCode.

    Hearthstone

    • Multiclass cards now display in decklists.
    • Added missing class header for Demon Hunters in the expansion guide.

    Hey hueuebi!

    The best thing one can do to get their feet wet is to share their decks on the site and write guides for them. It is a very easy way to showcase knowledge of the game(s) and is the first thing we look at when we put out applications or people contact us.

    A few updates were pushed throughout the day today to support the new Scholomance Academy Hearthstone expansion and more! These updates have come a bit later and earlier than originally planned.

    For the Out of Cards site anniversary last month, a large bundled site update was planned to release. Long story short, it was not released due to having some unfinished pieces (including the auto-sync plugin) and things have been very busy which has resulted in further... you guessed it... delays. I decided to push everything that was fully ready today due to the increased expansion traffic and since there were some quality of life updates, it would be helpful for everyone to get them today.

    New Features

    • OAuth Support
      • We can now let partner services and applications login with your Out of Cards account securely.
      • This is used in our Hearthstone Deck Tracker collection syncing plugin that is currently in alpha testing. More on that in a moment.
    • Profile Header Bar
      • A new bar has been added above the old site header.
      • This is where desktop users will be able to access their account-related stuff!
      • Because of this addition, we've made space on the navigation itself that can be used to promote more of our content.
      • Also features an instant search bar (details below)
    • New Search
      • Get results instantly without using the search page!
      • Type in a Hearthstone card name and get to its database page quickly. It also works with tooltips!
      • Supports Hearthstone Cards, Runeterra Cards, News Articles, Guides, and Hearthstone Expansion Pages with more to follow.
      • Dev Notes: The search page itself still needs an overhaul because it sucks.

    Hearthstone

    • Expansion pages now support dual-class cards.
    • Deckbuilder now supports dual-class cards (and family cards from Mean Streets of Gadgetzan)
    • Card Detail pages will now display multiclass instead of class for those types of cards.

    Changes

    Hearthstone

    • Instances of "Family" have been replaced with "Multiclass"
    • The Expansion and Mechanics multi-select fields on the Card Listing page have been switched to a better interface.
      • Dev Note: Still not happy with our card listing pages. These are going to be updated sooner rather than later.

    General

    • You can now see quick links to game portals across the entire site. They have a condensed appearance compared to the previous homepage listings.
    • The site background has been updated with card game flair.
    • Removed site supporter promotion blocks on sidebars. They have been replaced with new features in the profile header which better promote our Premium offering.
    • Premium page no longer mentions our Birthday discount since it has (finally) been deactivated.
    • Performance-related improvements on several pages.
    • Search Engine Optimization improvements on several pages. 

    Bug Fixes

    Forums

    • Forum threads within homepage and portal blocks now display full titles on mouseover tooltip.

    Hearthstone

    • Collection Manager no longer displays hero cards in the total counts for Basic cards.

    General

    • Icons on navigation for mobile users now include descriptions of what they are for.

    Collection Manager Automatic Syncing

    You made it this far. If you want to participate in an alpha test of our automatic collection syncing plugin for Hearthstone Deck Tracker, here's what you need to know. Once we're comfortable with it, a front-page announcement will be made. I want to get automatic plugin updates happening for that.

    • You're going to be installing a .dll file into your HDT plugins folder. Browsers will warn you the file may not be safe, as long as you're downloading it from a post or guide created by me, you're in the clear.
    • There are no automatic updates yet when a new version of the plugin is released. You'll have to copy the new version over the old one if an update is released. We'll make a dedicated thread for updates when the first one comes out.

    Now, onto the fun stuff!

    Out of Cards now has an alpha plugin for Hearthstone Deck Tracker. This only works on Windows. It will automatically sync your collection to the site. It will require logging into the plugin through your Out of Cards account so we can sync the data.

    • You do not enter your password into Hearthstone Deck Tracker. You will authenticate with our OAuth authentication service via the website itself. Do not share your account password with anyone!
    • Syncs will alert you when they happen (each time you enter your collection).
    • The site will process your collection update in the order it is received. Sometimes there can be a couple of minutes delay for your collection to fully update on the site.

    Interested and on Windows? Let's get it installed!

    1. Install Hearthstone Deck Tracker
    2. Download the Out of Cards Plugin for HDT. (Click Here) [Version 0.0.1]
    3. Move the downloaded "OutOfCardsPlugin.dll" file to "%appdata%/HearthstoneDeckTracker/Plugins"
      • You can copy and paste the path between the quotes above and paste it into your file explorer to get to the right folder.
      • You may need to "unblock" the plugin if your antivirus or windows freaks out about it.
    4. Restart Hearthstone Deck Tracker
    5. Go to the Hearthstone Deck Tracker Settings Menu
      • Expand the "Tracker" section of settings.
      • Under Tracker, click on "Plugins".
      • Activate the Out of Cards plugin by toggling it.
    6. Login to the Out of Cards Plugin
      • On the menu bar of Hearthstone Deck Tracker, click on Plugins.
      • Find the Out of Cards dropdown item.
      • Click on the "Login" submenu option.
        • You will be brought to the Out of Cards website to authenticate.
        • It will state you are logging in and giving the Plugin access to your Hearthstone Collection.
      • After logging in, go back to Hearthstone Deck Tracker.
    7. Launch Hearthstone and visit your Collection to have it upload to the site automatically.
      • A toast will appear in the bottom right corner of Hearthstone when your collection syncs successfully.
      • Sometimes, your first load of the collection will not sync. Not sure why, but HDT gets no collection data.
    8. Wait for the site to process your collection.
      • We process collections in the order they are received.
      • Once your collection is processed on our end, new collection data will be used across the site.
      • There are sometimes longer than normal delays in processing collections. This is due to us slowly scaling processing based on demand and performance. 
    9. Enjoy an updated collection!

    Special Notes

    • Toasts look ugly, they're purely functional right now. We'll put out an update in the future with something that looks more pleasing though remains small.
    • Automatic updates to the plugin itself are not yet available. This will be once we finish the alpha phase of the test.
    • We aren't collecting any other data outside of your collection.
      • If we start collecting more data in the future with the plugin, we'll let you know and keep that data collection off by default so you can opt-in to it.
    • Some other updates need to be pushed to the site to make collection dust counts appear on the deck listing and on news articles. I know! Hoping we can push this live tomorrow or later tonight.

    My collection got messed up again. It looks like whenever I do a JSON import, it's highly likely to add the cards in my collection, instead of replacing my current collection with the results of the import. The result is, if I had a single copy of an epic card in my collection, then when I do the JSON import, it inaccurately shows me as having two copies of that card.

    Is this a known issue? Should I make a separate report?

    Yes, that is how it works, it ADDS all the cards from JSON import, you need to import only once and then manually change your collection on the site with any future changes. We know, its pretty bad, but thats how it works for now. We are working on a better implementation.

    I just want to clear things up. This was never the intention of the feature. Bulk importing is supposed to calculate card differences but there's some funky logic that isn't up to par. Better implementation of it all is the end goal.

    This is a planned addition! We're also missing the ability to copy a deckstring which isn't great so that's going to be added too.

    Yup! They also work in Valorant, Riot's new FPS.

    I imagine they'll eventually get around to fixing the branding on the cards. Here's their support article that confirms it.

    Achievements that reward no points are "Feats of Strength" and are tied to limited availability. Them displaying on your profile if they are unearned is an error and will be correct at some point down the line when the page gets an overhaul.

    I don't think it's very fair to give them a point count when they are only obtainable in a small window. While I do believe that people on the site who have been here longer should have a better chance of having a higher total count, at some point, there would be too much of a discrepancy between a newer user and older user in how many total points were available.

    (I'm going to post an ''update" message every time I pun new info about cards so the post becomes visible when I post new info, but if anyone has a better idea for doing this, I'm all ears)

    Perfectly acceptable to bump the thread when new stuff is added =D

    Hey Theodrinus,

    Thanks for the feedback! We've actually got some large updates planned for the card database to help fix some of these issues and had a discussion about it last week.

    1. Standard sorting definitely needs to be added.
    2. Currently, it is possible to multi-select Expansions and Mechanics. Holding down Ctrl while clicking on an option adds it to the list. The interface will be changed to be easier to handle though since it isn't very friendly.
    3. This wasn't something we had discussed, but I agree this would be an excellent addition.
    4. The reason for the results to not immediately show images was due to a "mobile-first" design decision with an emphasis on search. Loading all those cards on mobile kills the page load time which in turn can result in less than ideal page ranking on Google. It is super annoying but we need that small boost. Maybe we could do something down the line that would allow it to be a preference for people that are logged-in. I do plan on reducing the clicks needed though to get to this - one less!

    Hey ViktorVonVox!

    In order to embed a deck on the site, you'll need to add it to the deckbuilder first.
    https://outof.cards/legends-of-runeterra/deckbuilder/

    Once there, you can add your deck code into the builder and it will fill the deck in automatically. At that point, you can scroll down, give it a name and set its archetype before saving it. After saving your deck, you'll receive a dedicated deck page on the site and a button that will allow you to copy the bbcode for the deck. This bbcode can be used on your forum post to embed the deck.

    Optionally, once the deck has been saved, you can create a guide for it to teach others how to make use of it. That option can be found on the deck's page.
