I realize that Shuffle iT got NO money. However Shuffle iT DID get a customer base, albeit with baggage, and has to be careful of not pissing off. Until feature parity with the previous application has been reached Shuffle iT will not get a penny from me and probably not others either.
Key features for me:
Windows Client (web based does not count)
Hide VP Counters
Missing cards (there are several missing from base set alone)
NON SUBSCRIPTION MODE OF PURCHASE, If I wanted ongoing cost I would play MTG
I do not necessarily expect this to be free and would be willing to purchase the game again, at a significant discount relative to previous purchases (this is part of the baggage that Shuffle iT has to deal with IMO).
This being said this is not entirely the fault of Shuffle iT this is partially the fault of Rio Grande Games and Donald X who have set Shuffle iT up for an epic fail, at least in my book. However, Shuffle iT took on the project and now has to deal with it and complaining to us that no money was received for any purchases that we may have made is NOT going to help the situtation.
