  1. Well, anybody who has logged on since the "Goblin" drop will potentially be affected. How will we know whether we've lost cards? There's been no point visiting the Collection since the new version 'cos there's nothing you can do there, so what's the point of tracking card numbers - I used to cap any treasure card to a max of 3 copies regardless of rarity, unless it was super-useful (Lamillar Armour and +1 Spiked Chain for example), now I can't manage card numbers so I almost never visit the Vault.
  2. Yes, I am very, very disappointed with this. Firstly, it takes control away from the user, who previously could curate their card collection to manage the balance of their collection to favour certain cards - or to de-emphasise others (for instance, I just won't use any of the "Vicious" class of weapon). Secondly, it punishes people (not me) who have spent real money on Treasure chests - automatically throwing away cards that they've actually paid real money for and without their permission or any degree of control. What's the point of collecting spit-loads of Treasure if ultimately the game m
  3. The cull is back on. Is there any info how the culling works now? Indeed - it's certainly not functional in "Collection" (née Vault), where/how it used to be.
  4. Aha! A lightbulb moment, thank you! Now I get it that the Stack Salvage is non-destructive I can rest easy. Though, as we agree, there are some potential issues around managing both the Unclaimed stack and the Collection (now that Salvage has gone from Collection, I can't manage my distribution effectively -unlike previously). What the Devs give with one hand...
  5. I'm still confused! Probably because of the old functionality with the Vault and Salvaging. Previously, my Vault showed (IIRC) every card instance that I had acquired - either through AD acquisition or through treasure/gifting/promo. If I ever had more instances of a card than I wanted I could Salvage from the Vault to gain Gold and manage the "probability" of gain certain cards during a Scenario. At the end of a Scenario, any card instances that I didn't retain in my character decks were "returned" to the Vault to be available for generating the deck for a Scenario. Now, however, I ca
  6. The way cards was managed previously was a mess, but at least I understood it. Now it's a complete mess and utterly incomprehensible to me. Does anybody have a good description of how the following interact Collection Unclaimed Cards Stash Why do I have to add cards to my stash instead of to my Collection at the end of a Scenario? Why can I no longer Salvage the unwanted Treasure cards in my Collection?
  7. Why are "hiccoughs to be expected"? Because OBS don't put sufficient QA into their builds to reduce the bugs to acceptable levels, or some other reason? Don't give me any line about "oooh, dev is really difficult and this is really complicated". Pah! ​I ​expected a whole heap of bugs, but then I have zero confidence in OBS's ability to get it anywhere near right first time - they have a track record in this respect. Why do you expect so many bugs?
  8. I can't help but observe that for all the complaining you did on something you got completely for free, you are sounding extremly entitled. To what do you think that I believe I am entitled? Or is "entitled" just one of those insult words like "triggered" that really doesn't mean anything useful these days?
  9. "Have to"? no. It's you that decides whether you want it on multiple platforms. If you do, you will have to pay. I do have some sympathy with your situation however, assuming that you paid real money for core game components on the mobile platform. But it's still up to you whether you consider it worth the money to purchase it on Steam. I didn't think it was worth the money on mobile, so all my purchases have been with Gold, I won't be buying it on Steam because (1) Quest Mode is going away, (2) I play it on my PC via an Android emulator and (3) I've spent quite enough of my resources supporti
  10. I think that is the likeliest summary of how things will work. Personally, I'm not against paying for a PC version of Pathfinder, but I can see how it is a little irksome to early adopters that they can't go cross-platform for free while the reverse is true for purchasers on GOG/Steam. However, my additional thoughts are: 1. The mobile version was stupendously generous in that it was truly a free-to-play app that didn't require any money or even forced ads reach the end. To unlock the game, you just had to play it a lot. 2. Going non-free will help the financial viability of the app
  11. At risk of being called a "hater" simply because I don't agree with those who like to throw offensive terms around the place, I'd just like to say that what I really want from this App is a faithful rendition of the physical game that I can play solo. I don't need fancy dice, I don't need dice stats that remove the need to think, I don't need card stashes and I don't want treasure at all in Story Mode. I play the digital because it saves on the overhead necessary to set up a game and tear it down afterwards. The only departure from the physical game that I do care about - and passionately
  12. I guess I'm a purist (why does that sound like a dirty word?) and I use that control at the moment. Of course it's really going to be a "Treasure cards on/off" feature soon, isn't it (given the demise of Quest Mode)? I wonder what the impact of a bunch of "purists" having no incentive to buy treasure will be. Presumably zero or OBS surely wouldn't have gone that route. Ach, more water under the bridge...
  13. I don't make the rules when it comes to marketing. No, I didn't think that you did. Neither was I targeting you with my comment. When I said "Obsidian" I really did mean the corporate entity. Would it have been too much to ask for a simultaneous (our even nearly simultaneous) release on the Dev Blog? Lots of good will from the community (that's called "marketing", right?) and nothing lost corporately. Well, we're sadly not going to change your corporate culture with these exchanges, I'll move on.
  14. Yay! They release the information here first - in the active community for the game! OBS loves their community! Wait... what?! Nice to know we're valued and respected.
