( Jan. 03, 2018 )
Games: Weekly, Biweekly Set B
Level Ups: Astral (Level 3, Level 4); Idil (Level 6); Kupo (Level 8, Level 9); Mosur (Level 4, Level 5, Level 6)
Lost & Found: Added 237 cards!

Wishing Tree

Ajisaitea / Anna / Idil / Lee / Mosur / Nea / Sana / Whitney"Choice cards spelling out HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!" That's a total of 16 cards but no more than 2 per deck and for the numbers, the filename of the card or the card number must have the number in it somewhere! There were a lot of variations of this same wish so I just combined them all which is why some of you might notice this wasn't your exact wish. ;;

Kupo"I wish for the lost and found to be updated with more cards! :)" You can see how many new cards were added in the Quick News at the beginning of this update!

Jun"I wish all forum staff can get an extra 5 choice cards for all the hard work they do!" There are no restrictions or limits on these because you guys work so hard and deserve it!! (You can take your Staff Pay twice for this week, too, if you still collect it!) We made it through another year! (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑

Deck Release

We're back to 16-deck releases now so hopefully you guys took advantage of and enjoyed the double releases last month!

You may take a total worth of 16 cards but no more than 2 per deck!
Donators & Deckmakers can take 1 extra card from any deck they donated or made.
Those with the +2 Release Pulls Character Skill can take an additional 2 cards with no restrictions.
If you want to swap pulls from this release, feel free to use this update's New Release Pulls thread!
For random cards from the new decks, feel free to use the Update Randomizer!


Thanks to yasu, all the Sakura Gift Shop purchases should be responded to by now so make sure you hand out all those gifts by January 10th! If we missed anyone or made an error somewhere, do let us know though.

I've also finally decided on a compensation gift for those of you who were affected by the randomizer error with the "Large Bag of Cards (All Types)" gift from the Sakura Gift Shop Aqua mention in last week's update, which you can pick up here! Just take the first 5 cards you see from any of the sections, comment with what you took, and log as "Christmas 2017 (Gift Shop Compensation)"!

The results of the Advent Calendar's Day 24 gift are now up as well and can be seen here, along with instructions on how to claim/use whatever gift you received! Sorry it took me a couple extra days to get this done, the holidays were surprisingly pretty busy for me on top of all the shifts I had at work so I tried to do as much admin work and stuff as I could while still taking the breaks and days off that I needed to not go crazy and pass out. ;;


This is honestly not really an update and more of a reminder but: please try to only submit new Lost & Found requests after a weekly update has been posted!

This is mostly just so those of you who request a claim on a Wednesday but before an update is posted will miss out on being able to claim the newly added cards if we ever add any since those are added after I release the new decks and right before I publish an update to the site. ;; (And also because I only update the log for Lost & Found with a note on when a new week starts after I publish the update!)


I really wanted to have some things ready for you all by now that I had mentioned/talked about in previous updates but time has escaped from me recently so I am severely behind on all the plans I had. T__T I'm still working on them though, albeit very slowly, so I'm sorry to any of you who are patiently waiting and looking forward to what is to come! My goal for 2018 is to actually get these things done so I'm determined to make sure I see it through!!

Also, I believe yasu is still having problems with connecting to the FTP server for Sakura so she can't do anything that involves uploading to the site so until she gets that resolved or is back at home, you guys will just have to put up with me and my slowness!! She'll still be around to respond to whatever she can on the forums but if things take even slower than normal then that would be why.

Other than that, there's not much else to say today (as if I didn't already say enough lol) so Aqua will see you guys for the next update on January 10th!

happy new years!!

( Jan. 01, 2018 )

As some of you may have been able to guess if you saw me floating around the forums earlier today, I'll be doing the monthly update today in place of yasu, who is having trouble connecting to the FTP for Sakura so she's limited in what she can do. ;;

That aside, I hope you guys had a good and safe New Years Eve, and are having a good start to 2018!


Who will it be this month, and our very first winner in the new year?

Congratulations, Shiranna, you are Sakura's Spotlight Member for January! Please pick up your reward either through the link on the sidebar or through the Sakura Spotlight link on the Interactive page, and PM me on the forums once you've chosen 2 decks that you want to be released (or made and released, if choosing something from the Deck Claims list that's only been donated instead of something already made on the Upcoming List)!


We also have new Event Achievements! One is our usually monthly achievement, and the other is one to celebrate 2018!

Event Achievements: ev-201801, ev-newyears2018


The Christmas 2017 event is now officially over! The Advent Calendar is finished, the pixels from the Winter Wonderland Item Hunt have been removed from the site (but if you see any still, please let me know!), Winter Wonderland itself has disappeared, all rounds of Christmas Card Shiratori are completed, and the Sakura Gift Shop is closed for new purchases.

However! Any purchases made at the Sakura Gift Shop that were posted before the deadline but have not been responded yet will still be processed once me and/or yasu can get around to it. Once the purchases have been approved though, you still have time to drop them off in player's threads until January 10th! Anything not dropped off by then will be dropped off by us.

Rewards for both rounds of Christmas Card Shiratori will also be passed out within the coming weeks once I get around to that as well!


The Deck Claims spreadsheet has been cleared of un-donated claims from December so donation limits are now reset, and a new Deck Claims thread has been put up for the month!

The Monthly set of games (including some of the forum games) has also been updated, including Birthday Party where players born in January can now pick up their present and apply for a Birthday Achievement Badge over on the forums! Any Monthly forum games that haven't been updated with a new round yet will be done as soon as the staff in charge of them get to it.

Any gifts that came from the Advent Calendar such as the trade meters only needing 15 cards to be completed, masteries of red and green decks having doubled rewards, and the discounted prices and tripled weekly limits at the Sakura Shops are now expired so they will no longer be in effect and everything should be back to normal now!


The next update will be January 3rd and that'll be with me, Cassidy, again! So I'll see you all then~
