Build Notes

  • “Players purchasing redemption objects will now be prompted to confirm their shipping address.
  • The “other side” reminder on the lower left of modal double-faced cards has been cleaned up and should be easier to read.
  • The standard color used for blue text added to cards in the Duel Scene has returned to a darker and easier-to-read shade of blue.”
