Hi Binbo-gaijin, would you be able to attach a screenshot of the skill selection column? I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that. As for the disconnect issue, we didn't change anything in the last patch that would have affected our networking. However, Photon (the library we're using) does tend of have some "off days" where certain players experience consistently bad connections. That said, I am currently looking into implementing a reconnect feature to recover gracefully from these disconnects to minimize their impact.

Here's a look at what you can win this time around:
I know that on steam link all controllers will stop working if you disable XInput, however, this shouldn't affect your game when you aren't using steam link. That said, I actually noticed the same issue you described happening to me too in the currently available build of the game, but also thought it might be a one-off. The version I'm running with locally (a version that will be released this week) does NOT have this issue since it has a newer version of the controller library we use, so hopefully this will be resolved for you as well!

Sorry Pk and Ron, but it looks like your sets are no longer complete. You will need to win the all new 1v1 tournament format to reestablish your dominance.
Some Steamy New Content
New cosmetics? A new stage? A new element? Stay tuned.
I'd certainly be willing to put it to a vote with the community to see what people think in general. The upside of not doing the 2-round snake draft is that it simplifies the first round which is important for new players. It could potentially be added as an "unlock" sort of like the elements are unlocked the first few times you play online.
Definitely agree that it feels very bad to be last pick for primary just due to RNG.
To counter this, we added a competitive preset (which you can use in party only games and will be the preset for ranked 3s and tournaments). This preset uses what is called "2-round snake" for the spell selection mode, which means that after everyone picks their primary spell, it reverses the pick order and you then draft your movement spell. Since one of MageQuit's strong points is replayability through draft scarcity, we felt this was a better solution than just letting people pick whatever they wanted for the first round. For quick play games we left the formula alone since it's meant to be more of a "for fun" mode.
Hope that helps!
Hi Bipolar Bob,
I'm sorry to hear that the game is giving you issues. Are you referring to being stuck in the tutorial, practice range, couch mode or online? The magequit database shows that you've successfully completed an online game, winning with 15 kills, so maybe you figured it out?
Currently we don't have full squad support yet -- it's something that will be added eventually and custom colors will be an unlockable part of that. That said, we started doing custom colors as part of a streamer program we were running for a while (I believe the team you played was Shaun's team; he was one of our first community rivals streamers). More recently though, people have been PayPal'ing me to manually give them these custom colors until we have official squad support. If that's something that interests you, feel free to send me a friend request and we can talk more -- if not, official squad support will arrive eventually (no ETA on that yet though).
Thanks for playing!
