Latest Patch NotesNOV 18 - 1.01.00.04 Patch Notes (2 days ago)

Yesterday


Thanks to everyone who sent in their info, we were able to identify the issue! A small number of players may see an issue where they don't actually receive their reward after reaching the required number of wins in the pass-style events (the events where losses aren't counted). If this occurs during an ongoing event, simply play another game in the event and you should be re-prompted to claim your reward. If you ran into this issue and the event has already ended, please get in touch with support for assistance. You can find more details in the known issue post: https://forums.mtgarena.com/forums/threads/61704

We are aware of an issue where a small number of players may not receive the card style reward after earning the respective win in certain events (i.e. pass-style events where losses are not counted, such as the upcoming Historic Anthology event).

  • Workaround: If players do not receive the card style when they earned the respective win, playing an additional game in the event should reissue any rewards that have not been claimed.

If the event has already ended or you do not receive your missing rewards even when playing additional games in the event, please contact support for further assistance.

November Game Update - Friends List Delay

The Friends List feature is being delayed from the November game update, scheduled for tomorrow at 8 a.m. PT (16:00 UTC). All other planned features, such as Historic and performance improvements, will still be released as planned.

In our final testing of Friends List, we found scaling issues that we need to address. We apologize for the delay and are working on solving these issues as quickly as possible.

Once we have an updated timeline, we’ll let you know.

Hey /u/TonyTheTerrible, would you mind PMing me with your MTG Arena display name (including the numbers after the #) so we can take a look at what's going on here?

Thanks Ben, I really appreciate how much you stay on top of the bug posts that pop up around here.

If you need anything more than the part I put on pastebin, I attached the full log file to my bug report on the official bug report tool.

If it turns out the opponent did just cast it too early, my apologies. I did what I could to rule that out before posting, but the log file is pretty difficult to decipher manually, and I didn't have a video recording.

OK, looking at both your client log and the server log for the match, it appears that your opponent did mistakenly play their [[Blacklance Paragon]] too early, while a [[Massacre Girl]] trigger was on the stack.

Here is a game state in your log that shows that the Paragon's trigger is on the stack at the same time as the Massacre Girl's trigger. You can see that the stack has two things in it:

{ "zoneId": 27, "type": "ZoneType_Stack", "visibility": "Visibility_Public", "objectInstanceIds": [ 372, 368 ] }

And that object 372 is an ability instance:

{ "instanceId": 372, "grpId": 136250, "type": "GameObjectType_Ability", "zoneId": 27, "visibility": "Visibility_Pu...

I'll look into this tomorrow. I could imagine how this bug could occur, so let's see if I'm right. #wotc_staff

It's interesting that you even need to do any action promotion here, given that Electrodominance instructs you to perform an action rather than setting up a lasting permission to perform that action later. Do you need to do the same thing for, say, drawing a card?

We need to have Resolution Time Actions Windows like Electrodominance's promote actions because:

A) the default assumption is that no action is legal (except pass)

B) it gives other abilities the opportunity to step in and prune the action (e.g. [[Teferi, Time Raveler]])

and C) Most of these windows specify an alternate cost for you to pay ("without paying its mana cost" for Electrodominance), which also means that we need to prune actions that have a different alternative cost.

#wotc_staff

I like to think about it this way - there isn't a rule that says you can't cast Sorceries or other non-Flash spells at non-sorcery times. Rather, during those times, there simply isn't any rule saying you CAN cast those cards.

That's kind of how the underlying code works, too. The game proposes all the cards in your hand as castable (as well as other cards that abilities give you permission to cast). The default assumption during the Pruning step is that no proposed action can be performed, but certain rules Promote actions past pruning such as Prune_Promote_CastSorcerySpeed say "this is a cast action, the stack is empty, and it's your main phase, so the game says you can do this." And Prune_Promote_CastInstantSpeed says "this is a cast action for an Instant, so the game says you can do this."

Electrodominance itself adds a rule for the cards it proposes saying "this action was proposed by me, so I say you can do this." #wotc_staff
