Okay...just downloaded the new expansion (2) for MTG and then it required an update. After updating, the game will not load. Anyone else having this problem? Tried clearing my cache and everything....still having the issue.

Tried deleting the game/all DLC for it, then redownloading them?

I was having the same problem but then it started saying that there was a new version of the game and that I had to download that. So I started the download and at 99% it says that it can't finish downloading. I deleted everything and tried to download it all again and I was able to get the dlc but not the game, it makes it to 99% and stops. This really pisses me off because I just paid 400 points for something that doesn't work and now I can't even play the game. Any info would help.


Update: I Deleted everything and cleared the cashe, redownloaded the game and both dlc and everything worked fine.

There is currently a problem with the DLC and accompanying update. According to a mod on the Xbox forums, they're aware of the issue and working on it, but recommend not playing the game for a couple of hours
INTERNETS: SERIOUS BIZNESS!

It makes sense though, this is the glitchiest game I've ever played. I can't tell you how many times it has frozen my xbox.

Well it is Wizards of the Coast. And you know what they say about WotC, right? They're the EA of trading card games... laugh

So the rules change that happened in July 09 wasn't total bullshit? That rules change put me off Magic. What about when Yugioh turned gay with all that GX bull. Yugi is was more bad ass than that retarded GX guy.

Slightly off topic but does this new pack add any more achievements? XBox.com isn't showing anything new yet.

Rules changes is what WotC is all about. Since they bought TSR (the previous producers of the D&D sourcebooks) they've fiddled with it quite alot. Speaking from the knowledge of an ex-DCI judge (too many expansions/rule changes to keep up) I agree that WotC, although a producer of a great game, has befuddled it and their customers with constant changes.

Also of note are the serious differences between the PC and Xbox versions of DotP: In the PC version we have MUCH more control over our deck and can build it using many more cards, edit it fully.. no simply sideboarding in cards and not being able to remove any of the deck's original cards.

I love Magic.. but this game drives me mad. Anyone up for a friendly game with the real cards? I swear I won't tear up my Chaos Orb.
65% completion by 1/1/11 or bust!

Yugi is was more bad ass than that retarded GX guy.It was already owned by Hasbro by July 09. And I can't vouch for Yu-Gi-Oh, cuz I don't play it, but that may just have been a bad idea in general.

Hasbro didn't make the rules change though, that was 100% WotC. Hasbro doesn't really have direct control over the mechanics of the gameplay for each card game, they just own the cards.

*Bows down to Jon's superiority*

Just kidding.

The way WotC hurt me, I'm almost to the point of defending EA over defending WotC laugh

Connecting to some people would always work, but others it would always lock up. What I did to fix it was to go to my router configuation and open up the ports described in the microsoft support topic below and it fixed up my locking up issues:

Once, to gain the "Overflowing Harvest Achievement" and a second time, to actually pass the challenge. I don't know if you can do both in 1 play through.
