After few months of existence the solo mode gets a new, clearer look, allowing better access to a large number of challenges.From now on the challenges are grouped in packs of 14. As before, each challenge has its associated mission, and furthermore each pack is associated to a special mission requiring to win all the medals in the pack.The existing challenges are now regrouped in two packs : Promising Exploits includes the first 14 decks, while Assault Course regroups the 14 next and more difficult challenges.On the same occasion we introduce 2 additional packs. Each pack can be unlocked for 20 credits and offers not only 14 new motivating challenges but also missions allowing you to earn more than 2000 Clintz and other rewards, while having fun.In Omega Team you will face the new original challenges of Cheng and Lydia Omega, while Sworn enemies will lead you into the heart of the struggle between Lord Ruthven and Sir Mac Gregor.Don’t wait any longer to discover these new challenges!
Post 22 we're on the typos (the wrong names were due to last minute changes in the decks, thank you for pointing them out).
As for the "french titles", if you find some others please point it out, but know that "Théâtre des Vampires" is totally made on purpose, as it was the name of the Vampire Lestat's theatre troupe, written in french in the original text. We chose not to translate it, to keep the flavour of the book. So, yeah, we're geeks, what's new ?

I'm pretty sure 1500 clintz isn't worth 20 creds. Especially to play an AI. So I guess I'll wait and see what some of the rewards are. Though if they offered alternate artwork cards (kinda like special editions) or some kind of new type LD you get when you complete all the missions then I could be interested.
The alternate art cards would be just that, same stats so no balance probs or effort thinking up abilities and such. Just different art. Or the kind of LD type card is like a mission boss card you get when you complete all the missions, like a trophy. Don't have to be uber powerful, though I'd hope they'd be playable at least. Though you'd then need to balance stats and abilities as well as new art for that.
You all complain about them costing credits. So I understand that you would rather have no new solo missions at all? It's not like anyone is forcing you to buy them. I would understand the whining if they made us pay for what used to be free. But that's not the case. If you don't want to buy it, just don't. Then it's like it doesn't even exist, and guess what? It didn't exist yesterday. So just take it or leave it, but please stop the pointless whining
I'm totally buying it. Not for awards, but for the challenge. I like making new decks, and I get bored fast, so it will be entertaining for me to look at their cards and make a perfect counter deck. Awards on the other hand, return part of the 20 credits. I'd rather have 3 cards, but then again, I could get terrible cards in a pack. I believe that 1500 is just the final award, but there will be some single ones for all missions, so I'll likely get few credits back, some more clintz and few tickets for a chance to win even more. Or a card as an award perhaps? The only thing I'm "meh" about are BP awards. Who needs them?
