No thread activity in three weeks and the online community doesn't seem to be very robust. I've been in the top 10 in "exp" every week and I'm averaging only 1-2 games a day. They did get the weekly rewards sorted out, though they're typically a couple hours later than advertised each week.

Anyone here playing at all? I keep seeing the same handful of people over and over, but I don't recognize any usernames from here aside from someone I met via Sentinels of the Multiverse.

I bought to see where it was going. I think (unless Im being a muppet) that where its going is straight into the museum of utterly ridiculous UX choices. Please someone tell me that the latest update hasnt bought a permanent f*&king sidebar to show card details.

Yeah, wow, that new UI is terrible. You don't need to make it less readable on tablet to make it functional on phone (see what Sentinels of the Multiverse did with their UI - they completely redid it for phones and left the perfectly functional tablet UI well enough alone).

Plus they randomly replaced some of the artwork, most of which was better the first time around. I have no idea what they're doing, but this update is really turning me off.

Enh, I appreciate the better display of the Evil Scheme, now I can see both number of twists and or monsters escaped so I can better tell how close the game is to ending.

The display on the Evil Scheme hasn't changed since the previous update, from what I can tell - the number of schemes drawn and conditional value were both there in the same spot before. Is there something I'm missing?

I do appreciate that the discard and KO piles are easier to get to in this new interface, but I still don't understand why they kept the zoom sidebar in the tablet interface, presumably to make the cards easier to read, when I could read the cards just fine without the sidebar in the first place.

Ok thank you glad to see others say the same. That new UI blows. Such a perplexing idea... how that got out of the development room... crazy
