v50.6 - New Timer System and Improved Connection Recovery
New Timer System:
inactivity timer was extended to 180 seconds, it was repurposed to only solely disconnect idlers (rather than semi-control turn timing as well)
a new turn timer system has emerged: turn time limit begins with 75 seconds.
each successful card play will add 15 seconds to the turn time.
each player starts with 3 “timeout allowances” for the game. when turn time is exhausted, game uses a timeout allowance automatically and add 60 seconds to turn time.
if all timeout allowances were exhausted, the turn ends automatically.
for every 240 seconds of unused turn time, the player will earn a timeout allowance.
remaining timeout allowances are visible on the player panel next to a hourglass symbol.
“ask for more turn time logic” was removed.
total game time for each player was reduced from 25 to 20 minutes, with a possibility of extension by 5 minutes each time.
timing calculations have been improved greatly for precision and fairness; turn/game/inactivity timers will pause while you are waiting for your opponent during your turn. in additon to that, the duration of any response to any request/selection will consume from corresponding player’s game time, regardless of whose turn it is.
Ignored players won’t be able to spectate your matches anymore.
Replaced Player A/B in game log with full player usernames!
The game features a brand new reconnection system that will try its best to reconnect and resume existing game when there was a disruption in the communication and/or browser. The new system even allows you to resume the game with a different browser/session/device in the middle of one.

(from the FAQ on the Discord) Q: Where is Pokémon Ranger and/or Channeler? A: Pokémon Ranger and Channeler are very specifically unique cards that would require an endless amount of coding to account for all “effects” that are important to track in the card game. We’ve thought of many ways to tackle implementing these two, but they are easily both the most difficult cards to implement and would require work that likely outstretches the cards themselves. We would likely need to modify the engine or make hundreds of workarounds on cards to account for these cards’ effects. While we recognize Channeler is not too big of a staple in decks either, we do recognize that Pokemon Ranger is a staple of the expanded meta. While these two are low priority, we hope to implement them one day.
TL;DR: They’re both the most difficult cards to implement due to features missing from our engine and would require a lot of work to implement, of which we don’t specifically consider either of these cards high priority.
I’d say it should be expected. If I saw correctly last I checked, MtGufo has been making good progress on stuff for 4th gen and HGSS. Expect it at some point in time
