Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)
Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.
Magic: The Gathering Arena
Isn't it being programmed in unity? Seems a shame to not offer it on every platform and take advantage of unity.
Regardless, early reports from hascon says its a very slick program. I wish I could beta this.
I'm really looking forward to it myself, I just pray it comes to Xbox One. I'm really worried consoles might get completely locked out. The initial release is PC only. The good news is that we do know it's written in Unity. This engine is supported by quite a lot of platforms, including Windows, OSX, Linux, Browser plugins, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry, XBox One, XBox 360, PS4, PS3, PSP Vita, Playstation Mobile, WiiU, Wii, some Smart TV's and also supports VR.
I can't wait to play Limited format in this too. No rarity restrictions means I probably won't enjoy standard much, but I'll try to play this a lot if I can. I'm terrible at building decks.
Get off my lawn you kids!

It's supposed to be free to play. That's all I know off the top of my head.
Q. How much will the game cost?
A. MTG Arena will be available to download with no fee and is a free-to-play game. Players looking to enhance their game experience will have the opportunity to do so through play rewards and in-game purchases, but purchases are not required to access the full depth of authentic Magic gameplay.
I was in the Beta for MTGO (back when it was modo.exe) and that was fine for the time. But this looks like their DotP product, and that is infamously clumsy and slow. You want card games to be snappy. MTGO is snappy because using a mouse is snappy. HEARTHSTONE is snappy because there are only like three things to point at/drag to. This is going to built with finger dragging in mind, but require MTGO's target-rich environment and end up clunky and "thick."
The developper is different than Duels, Jeb. I don't think they've gone with Stainless this time.
Magic is a much, much better and richer game than Hearthstone so I'm really optimistic. And they will put limited formats which is perfect for those of us that don't want to buy Standard-competitive deck.
but I don't want to ever play a mobile-version of that. i don't want to use my finger.
