Per suggestion, using reportbug now works even if the game is over -- it records the last game you played.

Silver packs are going to go up in price soon. Fair warning!

Also: the essence to gold conversion ratio is currently 30. This rate will vary (and will probably go down).

10/17 @ 4:30pm:

New client, backend released.

- fixes black screen
- client speedups
- some card fixes
- reduce database load on the backend (so we can invite more people)
- you can drag the battle indicators (if they overlap)
- increased deck limit to 60

Still some occasional problems with battle freezes / lockups, which we are looking at. As always, please use reportbug when you hit such an issue; as an example, user reports of the black screens helped us find the problem.
