    Did I miss the part where you wrote that normal gameplay will get the same game mechanics as Challenge mode. If so I apologize for my next comment. But do you think normal players don't deserve the same fun and fair play that tournament players do?

    Found a gamebreaking glitch with Kinessa. Posted it in the bug reports section.

    Other than that I think she will control the flow of every game she's in. Way too much of a power position for one champion.

    Interesting card sets for Kinessa, some of them are adjusted versions of previously removed cards. While some are stronger versions of other Champion's cards.

    And looks like I was right on the Gold convert, 120 per Champion Chest.

    The convert is a good deal for crafting, since you'll get quite an amount of Gold back, but in term of card amounts, it's a 80% or so decrease.
    Should be that much of a problem, since 10 Champion Chest or 10 Card is now converted to 1000 gold, which Crafting a Legend card should now cost 1000 gold.
    Pretty good deal, consider the amount of Gold you get from a match, not to mention they're also increasing the amount of Gold you get from a match and daily.

    ___ ___ ___

    Man... with all these nerfs to Champion talking in-game... it's like they're not even talking anymore, lol (something like 300% reduced now)

    And looks like Grover can no longer hit through shields, yay for Barik and Fernando can actually deal with Grover now. maybe....

    ___ ___ ___

    Respawn 50% faster... hmmm... feels like this is a "fix" for ppls complaining about Respawn time only being adjusted for Challenge Mode.

    Pip's Acid Cloud got a major nerf... a 320 dmg nerf to be exact.

    Skye got lotta Buffs, Them StealthBomber Builds are back.

    He did get a buff. Grover not being able to cleave into shield is huge.

    Good stuff. Loving the regular patches. One thing though - please give me some more deck slots! (or be able to adjust decks in-lobby). there's too many good cards to be limited by 3 decks.

    Grover not being able to pierce shields anymore is a large buff for Fernado alone.
