While Wizards of the Coast has plenty of success with selling Magic: The Gathering cards, the Online version of the game has plenty of followers as well. Now they are revamping the system with several improvements including the following:
- Streamlined download: 5 minutes vs. 2 hours
- Improved drafting and limited deck building scenes
- Updated navigation and visuals improve usability
- Combined collection and deck editor simplifies card management
- Floating windows take advantage of high resolutions and multiple monitors
- Full access to deck building, casual play, trading, and store
Sounds like a lot of new functionality. For more information you can check out the WotC web site here, and to get a sneak peak of the new client you can download it here.
While not working as a Database Administrator, Keith Schleicher has been associated with Gaming Trend since 2003. While his love of video games started with the Telestar Alpha (a pong console with four different games), he trule started playing video games when he received the ill-fated TI-99/4A. While the Speech Synthesizer seemed to be the height of gaming, eventually a 286 AT computer running at 8/12 Hz and a CGA monitor would be his outlet for a while. Eventually he’d graduate to 386, 486, Pentium, and Athlon systems, building some of those systems while doing some hardware reviews and attending Comdex. With the release of the Dreamcast that started his conversion to the console world. Since then he has acquired an NES, SNES, PS2, PS3, PSP, GBA-SP, DS, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One S, Gamecube, Wii, Switch, and Oculus Quest 2. While not playing video games he enjoys bowling, reading, playing board games, listening to music, and watching movies and TV. He originally hails from Wisconsin but is now living in Michigan with his wife and sons.
