    Just deployed an update that allows you to "jump to latest post" from the homepage forum widget.

    Also, somewhat related, the recent threads page now will display the forum a thread belongs to. You can thank Sinti for asking me why that wasn't a thing.

    Nice!

    Maybe the relevant card tags could be shown on the card's page? For example below the images.

    I would love to find a place to put bbcode boxes on the card pages. The sidebar is a likely candidate, we just need to make sure we don't end up with 50 different bbcode options haha

    Is there a stickied post or something with all of the bbcode? If not, i'm sure I'm not the only one who would find that helpful.

    I've updated our "how to link cards" thread over on the card discussion forum.
    https://outof.cards/forums/hearthstone/card-discussion/944-how-to-link-cards-decks-in-your-content

    Regrettably, the thread is missing some of the other attributes that are available right now, but maybe we can get those in or find a way to make an easier to view digest of all the bbcode options we have.

    You can actually already do this, we just didn't document it!

    Also, all games will have their own card bbcode tags, so no need to worry about getting cards from the wrong games. Hearthstone will always be the base "card" and "cardimg" tags with other games getting prefixes attached ("runecard", "runecardimg",  "mtgcard" "mtgcardimg") and having completely independent rendering logic where needed.

    One of the biggest Pogs, maybe ever. Seriously though this is definitely half life 3 but they would never actually title it that because there's such high expectations attached to those words now. 

    According to leaked info, the game is actually a prequel to 2

    Just not 3.

    Valve Software on Twitter made their first tweet.

    We’re excited to unveil Half-Life: Alyx, our flagship VR game, this Thursday at 10am Pacific Time. Can’t wait to share it with all of you!


    My mind = blown. After leaks this morning that Half-Life: Alyx was going to be a thing, and ones that looked very reliable, I thought we'd be in the dark until the actual announcement but it looks like Valve went and took charge on it to confirm.

    It has been a long time since Half-Life 2 Episode 2, and although this is not likely to be a continuation of the story due to the "Flagship VR" nature of the game, getting to go back into that universe with 2019 tech is going to ROCK.

    I don't even know what I want out of it. That oculus sure is going to come in handy though!

    I've unspammed your posts and deleted the extra ones.

    You're not really "in" the spam filter as an account or anything. I don't want to go into exactly how things work but we do take a few things into consideration when determining if a post is spam and sometimes one of them will mistakenly rank too high, causing the post to get sent to the void.

    We're a little bit looser on what can be determined as spam right now while we train it, so I do apologize for the inconvenience.

    I am so not looking forward to Jades in my Battlegrounds :D

    A very awesome feature for HC to support though!

    There are a bunch of issues with Hearthstone right now and Chris said on reddit they were investigating all reports.

    I had a fun bug where my friendslist showed everyone twice which made me feel quite popular and more importantly made it hell to respond to people. Also, I couldn't hit enter to send messages back to people which was infuriating.

    I hope they fix stuff soon.

    We don't have a filter for species, it is only for Tribes. Some other things are listed there that are internally relevant to Hearthstone at some point and we should probably hide them as to avoid confusion.

    No plans to do a filter for ard text lines. I think this is a very niche need and a good chunk of the results would be inaccurate anyway without plenty of human intervention, making it too taxing to keep up with. I don't know about you, but I don't know anyone on our team that wants to go through over seven thousand cards to make sure they're correctly flagged with how many lines of text they have :D

    I do appreciate your enthusiasm for the feature though. Let us know if you ever have any other ideas!

    Ah, I misunderstood, sorry about that!

    You're right, that's actually not at all helpful considering EVERYONE has access to these cards. I'm deploying out a change right now that will change the crafting cost calculation when decks get saved.

    Any deck created after this moment that uses cards from the 'Wild Event' set will properly see those costs as 0. I'll still need to run a calculation on all the other decks on the site though with those cards to fix the crafting costs.

     

    Edit: The process to update dust costs on all decks has begun. It'll take a while to go through but it should make finding cheap deck options much easier.

    The real way to fix this is once we have collection data on the site so we can tell you what a "budget" deck for you could be.

    Yeah, I'll get one out when the next site update hits with the deckbuilder.

    Not certain of the fate of our dear forums just yet. May allow categories to be collapsed as a preference on the forum listing. Homepage likely inherits the same settings as news, with off-topic and the relevant site forums also being included and not opt-out.

    The achievements UI still needs some work - it was put on the backburner to prioritize other features.

    Achievements that were limited-time and no longer obtainable will not display on profiles that have them incomplete after that gets fixed. Progression towards achievements with multiple criteria is also supposed to display.

    Yup, deckbuilder is already in the works and with that comes the deck database!

    Moving this to the site feedback forum since thats where it really belongs =)

    More invites will be going out in the next phase as well, starting November 14. We're all about to be unable to access the game, RIP!

    Do note though if you have access now, you will ALWAYS have access. Riot has no plans to remove access between phases, they're just taking the game itself down to get it ready for the next stage. Also worth pointing out that any real-money purchases made for coins, will be refunded when they do an account progression reset back into the original amount of coins you purchased.

    I guess I should also add, I think it would be cool if we could find a good way to allow you to customize the navigation more and allow multiple games to show up. That would be something far down the road though if we did it since it adds a lot of complexity to how the nav works.

  • Fluxflashor's Avatar Administrator Derpcorn 525 660 Posts Joined 10/19/2018

    The front page filter will work a bit differently than the navigation. The intention behind the navigation is to allow the relevant nav show up based on what "section" of the site you're on. If you're on the forums though, it'll show you whatever the last game nav you were on. If you were to "unset" the nav choice, all you'd be able to see is the forums.

    I do want to make an addition to the nav where we'll add some popular links to the Select Game dropdown so you don't have to go through multiple page loads to get to something like the card database or deckbuilder.

    For the articles though, we'll give you a list of topics/games you want to see on the homepage, and you can turn them on and off as you wish. We will, however, still have the rare article go through when a very important event is happening in a game that you're not "subscribed" to, such as when a new game launches or a new expansion launches. That's so we can give everyone a reminder about cool stuff happening. The ability to have articles filtered will probably be a logged-in only feature due to the extra overhead it will require (even though it isn't that much!).

    Is it correct I can currently (on mobile) only switch to one or the other, but not switch back to see both again (except by changing the url manually?)

    You can get back to the homepage by tapping on the Out of Cards logo at the top of the page. There you should have access to content from all games.

    Unless I misunderstood your question.
