R2 Release Notes - Dec. 12, 2014

Here is the list of changes in today's release:

KNOWN ISSUE: Enigma of Unknown was changed to an early beta design of the card. This was NOT an intended change to the game. The card will be put back to its original stats in the next release.

KNOWN ISSUE: If you do not see your Firstborn of Euna the first time you log in. Please log out and back in, then check Collection->Promo. It should be there.

KNOWN ISSUE: Akatril's Angel token has a cost of 0, not 4. This will be fixed in the next release.

Here is the full list of changes and fixes in today's release:

1) Firstborn of Euna added to the game. NOTE: Invoked has been replaced by Burn on this card.
2) Login Award system added. Firstborn will be awarded one per account using this system*. DO NOT SCRAP THIS CARD. You cannot get a second copy at this time.
3) Spirit of Giving added to the Holidays singles shop.
4) Login Award set up for Dec. 25 to give out one copy of Spirit of Giving per account. Ho ho ho.
5) Tribes 2 is back in the singles shop.
6) Nomad's "Steal Card" had its lame name changed to "Acquire" and has been given new art.
7) Nomad's 7th Star is now working properly.
8) Nomad's Grand Theft ability text has been made more clear.
9) Deny has had its length returned back to 5 as it was prior to the last push.
10) All of the Concealed Dagger triggers are working properly again.
11) The Opuses have been fixed.
12) Reconstruct can now only return gear up to mana cost of 5.
13) Empower can now only remove up to 4 abilities. See below for an explanation.
In our ongoing effort to make small buffs to underplayed Epic cards we've made these two changes...
14) Aegis Shield can now prevent up to 5 damage before it is destroyed.
15) Myriad of Dryads' cost has been reduced from 7 to 6.

About Empower: With the release of Firstborn of Euna, and knowing that the next set contains a good number of cards that give abilities, we have decided to make a pre-emptive limitation on the card. This card should have had a limit on it from day one, but as creatures in Eve rarely had more than 2 abilities, we're sure it didn't seem like a problem at the time. Also note that with the ability to grant +4/+4 for just 2 mana, it is still the most powerful buff spell in the game. A 7/7 with 2 abilities is nothing to laugh at.

* New accounts will not receive this card during their first play. They will need to log out and back in again to receive the promo.
