v67 Update: Legacy Format, Prop 15-3 Format, No Banlist Expanded
Legacy Format is now available to play in Quickplay
Prop 15-3 Format is now available to play in Career
Expanded Format will now work in “no banlist” mode, due to high demand. As you know, we do not provide an up-to-date Expanded format anymore, so I am removing the banlist in order to allow more games to be played. In the future, banlist will be reintroduced alongside custom format support.
Deck validation routine was entirely rewritten. The deck editor now shows you ALL validation errors in a list instead of one by one, and it also allows saving illegal decks in draft mode for both Quickplay and Career decks.
Weren’t rooms supposed to be for custom formats? It feels weird implementing formats on the front page in Career mode but sequestering their Quickplay modes to a side page where they will be buried by a multitude of custom formats of varying quality and interest. After all, it won’t just be popular formats like Gym Leader Challenge that get posted; people will also be making slight variations of official formats, like “Base-Fossil, 60 HP and below Basics” or “Base Neo, but no Sneasel or Vending Series cards.” There will soon be more Rooms than Quickplay formats, and many people won’t bother sifting through the list when they only wanted to play one popular format anyways. The three formats named above won’t get the same prominence as every other official format on this site. In contrast, adding three more format titles to the list of Quickplay options isn’t going to overwhelm new players more than the current list will.
Yeah but in order to create a new card pack type; each card must be classified into a card class (i.e. rarity in career) and each pack pool must contain a sizable number of epic, superior and rare cards; which are not present in Vending. I am curious if there is a suggestion of development of an alternative method to acquire Vending cards in career instead of buying packs (as it’s going to be problematic to fill all class pools).
