Improved surveys

You no longer need to go back into your browser to take a survey that you see on the game’s Main Menu. Any surveys, such as voting on a new pack, will be alerted in-game at the main menu and can now be taken within the game itself and not in an external browser.

New filters for packs

When it comes to filtering out or selecting certain packs, this feature has been through quite a few appearance changes over time. In this update, it’s nothing major that will change the way you view and filter packs. The game has simply added a couple more filtering options, like Sale.

Some minor aesthetic changes have been made to the Main Menu, all in favor of a more simple and enjoyable UI. There is also a new feature that allows players to hover over titles on the home screen, which will give you an expanded view that provides more info.

Fixes to Bugs
