I'd like to start by thanking everyone who has got in touch with me over email, Facebook and Twitter over the last couple of months. Your bug reports, feature requests and general feedback keep this site heading in the right direction and I really appreciate the time that you've taken to help me craft Cube Tutor into something awesome. For those of you out there who have a burning idea but haven't got in touch then please do and you might just see your idea making it into the next release!
It's great to see the site slowly becoming part of the collective consciousness of the Cubing community and I'll be doing my best to keep up the momentum. I've got a special announcement coming up sometime in the next couple of weeks that will hopefully see development on the site ramping up significantly.
So on to todays release and those of you who have been with Cube Tutor for a while will remember when the site went from a free hosting plan to a paid hosting plan and I opened up donations. Well now we are starting to max out our usage on the paid tier that Cube Tutor operates on. Rather than simply throwing more money at the problem, I've spent the last few weeks optimising and improving the site. It's by no means finished, but hopefully this release should give Cube Tutor more stability and prevent any outages at least for the immediate future.
I'm calling this release Wildfire 0.1 as there are no big new features in just yet (more on that in my upcoming announcement). Here is the complete list of changes. Any questions, issues or suggestions then please get in touch!
Added the paginated grid to the Decks page. This will make browsing the decks easier and also massively reduces the load time of this page. In addition the information that Cube Tutor stores in memory has been reduced to improve performance.
Significantly reduced the incidence of the 'Something went wrong' page by catching the case when a user tries to make an ajax request on a stale session (for example after leaving a draft open for 90 minutes and then picking a card).
Initial cube loading from the database is now about 80% faster as a result I could reduce the cache duration for cubes.
Bug Fixes/New Features
The draft bots handle new cards a lot better. If a new card has only been picked, but not passed the bots will ignore until it has either been passed or drafted 6 times.
When deleting a card from your list the page no longer scrolls and the deleted card is marked with a red row until the update set is saved.
All drafts default to 15/3/7 if possible and the first pack is loaded when you hit the page so you don't have to press the 'Update' button each time you draft now.
Fixed JSS Royal Assassin image
Sections on the View List page have no line breaks when there are less than 6 cards in that section
Fixed the order of the cards when making replacements on the Edit List page (i.e. OLD > NEW)
You can't set an empty name for your cube any more. All current cubes with an empty name have been renamed to 'My Cube'.
Double clicks are prevented when submitting decks.
Resetting and Deleting a cube now clears all deck lists too.
Time for a quick poll. We'd like to know how many of you pimp the cards in your cube and to what extent. This information will be very useful in guiding our future development priorities so please take 10 seconds to hit the below link and let us know what you think!
We have been holding up from putting Theros on Cube Tutor until the images are uploaded to Wizards "general" URL and that has finally happened! All associated promos have also been added with images being sourced from MagicCards.info. I'm looking at other options to make this quicker the next time a new set is released.
Also managed to get a few small features/fixes in:
Added 'Enchantment Artifact' type for the new Theros cards.
Added latest FNM & Judge promos.
You can now delete a cube through My Account.
Deck links in My Account now use the new cubedeck page (not the old broken draftdeck one).
Made some modifications to the average cube lists. These will be updated again soon.
Added an FAQ question about freezing drafts.
All set codes are now upper case to keep things consistent.
Uploading a cube image that is greater than 250kb now shows an error rather than refusing to accept the file with no explanation.
Lots of work is currently going into the next major release (Wildfire!) so keep an eye out for that soon.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback for the Tinker 3.0 Release. A few of you mentioned missing card images to me and hopefully those should now all be fixed, if not please let me know. I also found some time for a couple of other bits and pieces…
Added FAQ Page.
New Rarity column on the Edit List page. If you have a Pauper or Peasant cube that is listed as Budget you can now override the rarity on the offending card(s).
Moved the Export function from My Account to View List to make it possible to export other peoples cubes. Added MTGSalvation '[DECK]' export format.
Added the Export function to the Deck page so that you can export deck lists. Supported formats are Plain Text, MTGSalvation and MTGO (.dec).
Added the filter to the Visual Spoiler page.
Added missing M14 Promos, Duel Deck cards, FNM promos and fixed FNM Life // Death image.
Packs with more than 15 cards are now draftable.
Fixed a bug where the line endings weren't working when exporting on Windows and opening the file in Notepad.
Analysis page shows how many cards are being analysed which is useful when filtering.
There were a couple of edge case problems with Visual Spoiler ordering. The order is now more similar to the View Cube page.
Creatures with the Super Type 'Summon' (mostly Unglued and Unhinged) were appearing as 'Artifact Creature' on the Edit List page. This has been fixed.
