Nice! 40 minutes.
BTW, there are 2 HOITCG twitter, and this one posted is innactive.
The info window in shop doesn't really give much info. Does the H&D booster have same amount of C/U/R than 1st edition boosters?
proud member of beta-testing team :beer:
many new cards and new systems. hopefully be able to win a few packs
but, does each win give 1 of the new packs + standart, or especially in tournament instead of standart up to 8 new booster?
My understanding is that all H2H and Tournament rewards between the dates listed will be H&D after you'll get basic. So you have a horde of tickets use them/trade them away before their value is downgraded after the deadline. (Tickets are still going to cost the same but artificially they will be cheaper since you could only use them for basic)
Yes, the new booster pack have the same amount of cards.

Well, the devs are busy people that cannot solve all issues immediately
And how one becomes a beta? One day, a mysterious message appears, with an offer you can't refuse!
Imperial Guard Conscript
Wow! Nice surprise!!!
By the way did they solve the reserves reshuffle problem?

Well quite nice to have new cards. But obviously there are alot of new bugs now + the timer in H2H ist still 30mins.
Hi, I just tried a h2h and it was 40 mins per player now, so I think that's been fixed at least
I forgot to thank for the 10 minutes added to h2h. I've been joking and criticizing around and it's great to see it has changed! Don't know though if this extends to tournaments.
Not for tournaments. They are really long even now, another hour wouldn't really help in that way, as much as gameplay would appreciate it.
The 10 minutes would extend a tournament for 30 minutes. If you schedule games to start in exactly one hour after the game before it can be a lot more confortable to wait to finish the tournament, more than it's now. You could add even 20 minutes.
It's 10 minutes for each player, so the tournament would be 1 hour longer.
Yes, you are right! I'll drink a coffee. Anyway, rounds should be scheduled to start in one hour from the previous one, as Baruk said on another thread. I think this would be the better.
Hi all. Only head 2 head matches are 40 minutes. Tournaments will remain the same.
