Hey, let's not make fun of people for misreading or misunderstanding a card.

Recently? Creating a TON of tokens with Tesya+Elenda.
Of all time? Probably getting a Pridemate to over 300 attack and toughness.
Lexie, that sounds like you're bit Timmy, aren't you?

Honestly, I'm more of a Johnny. I do like puking out tokens though!

So how do I update...

What is the context? Did you try to start your game but it wouldn't update? If so, you need to contact support.

@WotC_Lexie

I would really like to know, why not just fix something so trivial to fix? If you really only banned like 50 people, that means there's still thousands of cases where people have their clients crash due to this bug, right? Again, why not just resolve the issue? Why didn't you resolve it last time? Why is it even in the game in the first place?

Unlike all the other animations, the color change has no cooldown, meaning I can easily spawn as many particles as I like depending on how fast I click it. Clearly that's a problem, so why is it not being fixed? As said earlier, anyone - artist or coder - can very, very easily fix this issue and it could have already been deployed with the mastery update a week ago. So why does this problem still exist? It makes no sense to...

@WotC_Lexie:
I was given the okay to give out exact numbers, so here it goes... Only about 50 people were suspended (and only for five days). The people who were suspended were clicking the cat over 150 per minute, and it was constant. There were thousands of clicks per game. It wasn't a one time thing, either. This was over multiple matches.


If you have been just absentmindedly clicking the cat, you won't get in trouble.

All those are great, but is there a chance to give us an option to hide our opponents' cats in the first place ? Just like we can permanently disable emotes ?
You can. Mute emotes, and it mutes the cat too.
I believe what Njordin was requesting was a way to completely hide the opponent's cat. Not just a way to mute it, but a way to ma...

This is where I go from an Arena whale to a FTP.
"I was given the okay to give out exact numbers, so here it goes... Only about 50 people."

How does 'exact' equal 'only about'?


I can pull the EXACT number of people suspended, but it doesn't matter whether it was 47 people or 52. What matters is the click numbers. :information_desk_person:

I think it would be great if you could implement a "are you sure you really want to target your opponent or his stuff" rider on all beneficial auras and spells.

I mean the reverse is already there for detrimental spells :)

My top comment in this thread explains why that's not feasible for auras. For most spells though, we already DO have this warning system in place. For example, if you accidentally start to Giant Growth your opponent's creature, you should be getting warned. #wotc_staff

How could they not see it coming..

We’re adding a fix to keep players from ‘spam’ clicking the cat on 7/25. In the meantime, our support team is taking action against players who are clearly abusing the function (thousands+ of transformations per game, and doing it across several games).

The real issue is the lag that stuttering and even make this possible.

He clearly selected one card then it snapped to another.

How do you guys not see that as an issue?

Of course that's an issue. As a rules engine person, I don't have much insight into why that happened. However, I can answer why there is no warning dialog. #wotc_staff.

You'd think there would be an "are you sure" dialog. I can't zap myself with Sorin without clicking through a dialog.

The targeting semantics for Wolfkin Bond are simply "Enchant creature". We can't tell whether that's good or bad for the purposes of warnings - that's the same ability Pacifism has. #wotc_staff

I guess this is a heads up to all who actually pay to play.
Also I have no issue with F2P players but I love how certain F2P players within this post have admitted that they will never pay to play, being that WoTC hasn't given them a reason to buy anything, think that they have the right to decide what the pay to play players get to do with the products that they paid hard earned money for.
I guess they feel that somehow them constantly acting as if they are the protector of WoTC is payment enough for the dev's and will pay to keep this game running.

@Deylios Darksol:
For those getting banned, I would wager a guess that you did it more than once, figured it out and proceeded to continue to abuse the mechanic in game. I am 100% positive WotC pulled the logs of the people that were banned, saw that they were doing this action on multiple occasions, and offered them a 5 day vacation from the game.


Let's be honest, most people who have the cats have clicked fast a few times and gone about their game, not causing disconnects and not been banned. I know I have done that.
This. We ran the numbers. If you clicked on the cat an insane amount of times in a match multiple times, you got a suspension. It wasn't a matter of just clicking the cat a few times... Or even a few hundred times a match... It was far, far more than that.


As I tell everyone who gets banne...
