First automatch game since ...
« on: 02 March 2022, 10:42:17 PM »
I moved up to the gold subscription.  I've been playing only bots in order to learn the unfamiliar cards.  So far I'm up to level 6.

I thought I'd try an automatch today for the first time, timidly at level 4.

I got a bunch of cards with "favours", which I'd never heard of.  I went looking through the levels selector.  Nothing on 'favours'.

I noticed the game was unrated. 

What happened?

In case you missed it, this week the upcoming expansion Allies is being previewed. You can find the previews explaining the cards here:

You will have an option for automatch called Previews. This lets you play with the previewed cards, but games with previews are forced to be unrated. Turn off the previews option if you want things to go back to normal.

Ah, so I just turn off "previews".  Thanks so much.  I have just upgraded from silver to gold, so that's 7 or 8 expansions to get under my belt.  I have seen notices of a new expansion, but just ignore them as at this point it's of no interest to me.  I have an abundance of new cards to learn already.

I'm not sure though why this new preview was not properly integrated into the "Levels" feature?  If I play at level 4 and previews is set on, should I not see only cards in the new expansion that are level 4 or lower?  I realize this is a question for the developer and not for you particularly. Thanks again for the info.

It will be integrated once the Allies expansion is actually released (which will be next Wednesday).
Previews have rules of their own.

I can understand that argument - i.e. if someone turns on previews, then they want to see all the cards.  In that case, it would have been better to have previews OFF as a default value. 

I quite like how the Automatch screen looks at this point.  I see lowest level is now also on the levels section.  There's a bit of a learning curve on this screen, but I think you now have a way for beginners to ease into the game.
