I love the game, the interface with swipe to move cards is great.

A matchmaking/elo system would be great, chat too.

Was the bundle tab under IAP always empty?

Good to know! I hope the PRIME issue has been resolved too?

I think the Bundle will be empty till the next big sale/update, which could be Immortal Heroes (unlikely) or Promo Pack 2 (please, Playdek ).

The matchmaking/ELO/chat have been a big demand for a while now but they haven't been able to implement those as of yet. In addition we still don't have true multitasking, with switching back to causing it to start at the Main Menu. A few a are minor issues while some are more glaring but all are manageable and the game is still hugely enjoyable.

Big bug. guardian of sadranis doesn't give you the two extra honor when defeating a monster in the center row. I've noticed this on a couple of games online and just confirmed it now. I have screens to confirm. I've kept wondering why I don't have as much honor as I should be havig but I don't always keep track.

this needs to be fixed :/

Well, another card is broken. Great Omen Raven will sometimes award the honor even if you pick the wrong card. It happened twice when I picked Heavy Infantry and the cards drawn were a Mystic and an Arbiter of the Precipice.

onewithchaos, Guardian of Sadranis worked for me just now in an online match. You might want to test it again.

I got your screenshot. It's not a bug. The honor from Guardian isn't awarded until after you finish resolving the reward effect for the defeated monster.

Just letting the Ascension regulars who didn't move to Summoner Wars know, I'll be pruning my games. I probably won't be responding to invites for a whole.

Is this normal?

After many and many games I have askara's fate spawn when my deck is empty. Basically it means I cannot draw a card as my discarded pile does not fold back into a shuffled deck as it would with any other card.

Do you guys recommend the expansions? And which one is worth buying over the others? Thanks
