Update 104 Released

Official Announcement post on the Steam Community page.

Today we released the first of several major updates for A Druid's Duel. Version 104 addresses a few issues with online gameplay and also includes a couple bug fixes.

Updating to v1.0.4 is required to play online games.

You may notice you have a bunch of games where it is now your turn. This is a Good Thing! Your opponent has automatically conceded, so just Resume the game and claim your Aura and Trisks!

Here's the gist:

  • Any game down to 2 players can now be Conceded. This is the "I give up" option. If you Concede the game, you retain any Trisks or Aura you earned. Any game with 3 or 4 active players still allows the current player to Retire. This means you leave the game and forego any Trisks or Aura from it.
  • The server is now doing automatic clean up of games. Any game where the current player has not taken their turn for 36 hours will do one of two things:
    • If it's down to 2 players, the current (inactive) player will concede the game.
    • If it has 3+ players, the current (inactive) player will Retire from the game.
    • In either case, the next player either wins or takes over as the current player.
  • The multiplayer maps "Four Corners" and "The Vaulted Wood" have been adjusted to allow for better balance.
  • The game limit has been increased to 10 active games and a bug has been fixed that counted some game states against your total. With automatic game clean up, this hopefully is an adequate number for now.

New Portal Features!

We've been working really hard to round out the features of the Player Portal. On the eve of launch, we've added a few handy things into the mix

  • A new Leaderboard is now in the main menu. It lists the current leading players based on total Aura generated to date.
  • Profiles are now linked in the Game History and elsewhere so you can get more info about any player by clicking on their username. This is the first step to more robust public profile pages.
  • Kickstarter backers can now turn their KS Badge on or off from the Edit Profile page. This will update your Avatar whenever it is displayed in the game or the Portal. Note: You have to be using the same email address you did while backing the Kickstarter for this option to display.

Feedback Needed!

As more and more players join and start playing Online Games, we're going to be looking for feedback on the features you'd like to see and any problems you are having.

Required Update v1.0.3

We will be pushing out an update to the game. This update will be required in order to continue playing online games. If you try to play with v1.0 you will be blocked, as that version causes problems that breaks games under certain conditions.

This update required us to remove all Online games and Online game stats. This resets your Aura and Trisks to 0.

Thank you for your patience and please report any issues you find in the Player Portal.
