Innkeeper Voiceovers

Like the Announcer, the Innkeeper is a non-player character that players will interact with several times during their game sessions. The Innkeeper welcomes players back to the game after they've logged in, lets you know when a friend has challenged them to a duel, and more!

    "you've earned enough expert packs for this week" I'm trying to figure out what that actually means :D

    He means you've reached the hard cap on Expert Packs :(

    Quite possibly a remnant from before they changed expert packs over to gold.  Or maybe you still get some expert packs just by playing.  Who knows, hopefully we'll learn more this week.

    Yeah there was a lot of surprising information in here. I guess I just never fully understood the award system, and I just assumed we would be getting Gold or booster packs, but from some of those sound bites it sounds like we'll be unlocking individual expert cards as well, win or lose. Also confirms a hard cap on packs per week from rewards. I'm not too sure what to make of this though, being that they said they were moving towards a universal currency of Gold for everything. Some of these could be outdated.

    Yep, we need to take the audio with a grain of salt since we haven't had an update in a while. Still interesting nonetheless!

    What's this?  I think I caught a tidbit about asynchronous play in that voiceover.  "Your friend has challenged you...you can take a turn, even if your friend isn't around."  That's awesome!  

    Seems that the "weekly tournament" is in fact just the medals systems though, not a standard tournament like a lot of us hoped for.  We'll see.

    Hopefully we'll get some clarification soon!
