The add targets to ingame mails feature looks promising. Players have been clamoring for an update to the ingame mail client for awhile now.

I was hoping they will release instant delete card or card that can make delete building faster.

i really wonder why slowly more and more cards come up but anyway..we all know why.
this update doesnt deserve its name since its only improving in you spending your $'s. the rest is cosmetic imo
how about defensive captains abilities, cancel traders, cancel monks and so on?
for some strange reason "trickle down effect" comes to me mind...feed a few "improvements" now and then and all is good

the in game notes and the mail addition sounds potentially useful. i usually just keep notes in one of a few text files anyways on such matters but hey who knows.

the cards are crap. sounds like more junk to make the stuff we actually use ever more rarer. the last stand can be very nice but it'll be one of the most rare of those cards so not like us mere mortals will see one very often, especially when we only purchase a few hundred packs here and there any given month... :lol:

so, how about those new quests that were mentioned months ago? the new "more challenging ai castles"? any actual fun stuff for us to DO in game?

So what does it mean how you can replay cards for your reports? surely you wont be able to play a card more than once for the price of one?

I love the notes to diplomacy.

Somethings broken though,
it appears to me though that greyed out cards in use e.g. cropping card no longer stays greyed out if in use
