A quick update to fix some of the bugs we found so far and also the most important Modern ban list update. Welcome Jace, the Mind Sculptor to the modern format and welcome back Bloodbraid Elf to the modern world as well. We are working on a big update on next release (hopefully) but before that, dev will take a short break for Chinese New Year. Happy Chinese New Year to everyone and remember, you can help us by recommending this app to your friends and help us reach to more players.
Introducing multi-languages search where you can search card name using the languages you want. This feature is requested by many users who own and play Magic in language other than English. It can be a very challenging when looking for a card you know it’s name in specify language but you totally forget it’s name in English.
The feature is off by default and can turn it on in the settings. For your information, syntax search is not supported in non-English search. Once you type the card name in search, auto-complete will kick in and suggest card name accordingly. This should make search using any language much easier.
A new year, new set release, new standard ban list, which mean a bunch of judge documents and database got updated. We are keeping track all those document and list to make sure judges and players have the latest documents and rules for their references. Comprehensive Rules, Magic Tournament Rules and Infraction Procedure Guide all have updated. We also rebuild the whole database due to the oracle and type changes in some of the cards we mention in previous post. Yes, all oracle text you get from the app is the latest and fresh from gatherer.
We are sad to announced that Magic Spoiler will be removed from Bugko. You may have notice that the app no longer receive any spoiler / news update from Magic Spoiler since Rivals of Ixalan spoiler season started. This is because Magic Spoiler decided to block our server’s IP address from accessing their spoiler / news / website. No reason was given.
We have tried to contact with them multiple times to understand and resolve the issue, but so far they never replied our message. It is a sad decision and a big lost for our users. We respect each website owner’s decision, even though we can easy workaround the problem by changing our server’s IP address.
From next version release, players won’t be able to access previous spoilers / news in Magic Spoiler from the app nor you can receive any spoiler / news from them. We are still open to the possibility of working together with Magic Spoiler if they wish to talk with us any time in the future.
Wizards announced there will be some oracle text and type change for a small number of cards, the day after we release our latest Rivals of Ixalan update. Thus, you won’t see the latest oracle text and type changes in our latest update (5.1.2 version) on all affected cards.
We know many players and judges depend on the app for the most accurate oracle text for their games and judging tasks. We are rebuilding the database to make sure all affected cards are updated in the next coming update. The next update will probably come after the ban list update, around next week.
Are you ready for another new set release, Rivals of Ixalan? We are ready. The database update for Rivals of Ixalan is now available in all platform app store. It is a big challenge for us to support all 3 platforms (Android, iOS and Windows) and release update as quickly as possible, but we delivery it and we will continue to do so.
Enjoy your Rivals of Ixalan pre-release event in the weekend. Remember, you can help us by recommending this app to your friends and help us reach to more players.
