Welcome to another Developer Update! Version 30.0 should be appearing in an app store near you very soon, and we’re excited about the new feature it brings, and what it means for the future.
Introducing Player Profiles
Player Profiles are a new feature to Combat Cards, giving you all sorts of information about you and your progress in the game. In this release, the profile gives you information such as your total wins, number of cards discovered, and even your favourite Warlord! In future updates we’ll be including more stats including recent decks, Ranked mode stats and more. Player Profiles will also become even more useful when Clans are introduced as you’ll be able to see your clan mate’s progress and invite people to your clan!
Player Profiles are full of useful information about you, but what if you want to show off the faction you love to other players? Well now you can with Customisation!
Recently we changed the way your name is displayed on your front screen and in battles, and the reason for this was to pave the way for Customisation, which will allow you to change the appearance of what we call the ‘Name Plate’ with a number of different features. To start with, you’ll earn a new Avatar with every Warlord that you unlock, so you can change yours from the Combat Cards logo to your favourite faction’s champion! You’ll also earn a new Title as you progress through the ranks, starting from an Aspirant all the way up to Captain.
As you can see from the concept art above, there are other Avatars, Titles, and other cosmetic items like Banners and Borders that will be arriving in the game in due time. These will be available from a number of activities in future, and can be seen by other players during battles! There are other cosmetic item categories that we’re planning to release at a later date that we’re very excited about, but more on those in a future update.
- Fixed an issue causing stutters to happen after different actions
- Fixed an issue which caused players to stop receiving notifications after an update
- The XP bar should now fill up correctly after upgrading cards or claiming objectives
- The game can sometimes hang for an amount of time after resuming from background
- Sometimes the game can get stuck with the loading icon if users upgrade a card through multiple levels in quick succession
- Some items in the Shop incorrectly display a popup stating that an item has already been purchased
- The background shrinks when opening windows on some devices
- Numerous trait issues (see update below)
- iOS account linking not functioning
The team are hard at work on a number of requested features (some of which might have been hinted at earlier. Did you miss it?) but the one we’re testing currently is the improved battle system that we have mentioned in previous updates. Not only does this open up a number of exciting opportunities for new gameplay, but it also gives us the ability to fix the various issues with Traits and Special Rules that you will have undoubtedly experienced before. It will also allow us to introduce more varied Traits and Special Rules, and of course you can’t have new Special Rules without new Warlords, right? More on this soon…
We’re also in the process of going through another balance pass on cards, so should have a separate update on this once the changes have been confirmed.
Finally, don’t forget that April 29th signals the start of our Exultation event; a celebration of all things Combat Cards! This includes a whole week of:
- Brand new cards
- Daily missions
- Daily giveaways
- Double rewards in your Kill Packs and Free Packs
- An exclusive Eisenhorn giveaway – Anyone who opens a Kill Pack during the event will be entered into a draw at the end of the event to win one of 500 Gregor Eisenhorn cards. This character is usually only available at conventions and other events so be sure to take part, and good luck!
Why not head over to our in-game forums, r/WarhammerCombatCards, and Discord for discussion and let us know what you’re looking forward to?

Update 30.0 has broken the game, it no longer loads.
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch and apologies for the issue you encountered.
Unfortunately there was a problem with the game update that you downloaded which prevented it from loading properly. If you check the app store for updates now you should see a new one (version 30.1) which will fix the problem and let the game load as normal.
If you deleted your game to try fixing the problem with a fresh install then you may have lost your old account and progress. Our Customer Service team can fix that and restore your account, so if this has happened to you please contact them using the help option in the game’s options menu or this link: https://support.flaregames.com/hc/requests/new) and they’ll be able to restore your old profile and your purchases.
Our apologies again for the problem with the game update and for the inconvenience.
Any reason why I can’t see version 30.1 I’m App Store? Game still broken for me….
Hi there, sorry to hear about the issue. We didn’t need to roll a new version out to Apple devices, as the problem with the earlier build was specific to Android.
Unfortunately that means I’m not sure what’s gone wrong in your specific case, so please contact our Customer Service team using this link: https://support.flaregames.com/hc/requests/new) and they’ll be able to look at your profile and see if there’s anything they can do to help.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
One quick question why you didn’t show full stats with lost battle?
It would be nice to see win/lose ratio in ranked and campaign
Hi, thanks for the question. I guess it’s down to us balancing how much info we display, because while advanced players like to see all the stats they can, too many numbers everywhere can scare new players away. I’ll pass you suggestion onto the team and see if we can provide more stats in a future update. Thanks for the feedback.
You have enough place within border of current stats to show that info, since it is only 5 digits right now look like that:
RANKED WINS CAMPAING WINS
and just change it to:
RANKED WINS/LOSS CAMPAING WINS/LOSS
1111 / 555 11111/ 555
In the worst case you can add one more row ( that 1cm extra height) won’t make it chaotic or unreadable. Really i don’t believe 10 more digits will scare someone, aren’t you agreed?
You have already all the data with losses (i know via support) so it look like very EASY fix.
btw ranked mode cell showing your current ranked score should be litte bit more wider because it have problem with 5 digits scores, look on forum topic where poeple show stats. Problem is in wideness of NUMBERS if you have only one number 1 the cell isnt wide enough if you have 2 ore more 1 in score everything show perfect.
Thanks for the feedback and suggestion. I’ll pass your note about the score not being wide enough and idea to display more stats to our art team, as they’re the ones who would decide on its priority. Thanks again.
“Very EASY fix”
Would you actually have any idea? If you want developments, sure, ask for them. No need to be condescending.
Was medicae a new trait that you guys were updating? I noticed the text changed to read +50 wounds but it’s still only granting 5.
Unfortunately that’s a minor display bug that’s crept in as a result of the behind the scenes rework of our battle systems (you might think that it’s ironic that the thing which will fix a lot of minor issues with traits and Warlord special rules has caused a bug, but it’s all down to part of the code being updated before another area).
On the plus side, when these behind the scenes updates have finished we’ll be able to make all sorts of improvements to traits, possibly including upgrading the effectiveness of Medicae. No firm date on when that might be, but watch this space.
Since the last update I am really struggling as keeps crashing on iOS. It does this at random stages but if I manage to battle crashes every time at the end. At lot of times though crashes as I go into battle and lose energy but get zero reward. Hope you can fix this as I am really loving the game.
Hi there, sorry to hear about the problems you’re having. Could you do us a favour and contact our Customer Support team using this link: https://support.flaregames.com/hc/requests/new because that will let them see your profile and let the dev team know if there’s something obvious that’s gone wrong (so we can fix it). Thanks!
Also, if you let them know about the energy losses you’re suffering they’ll be able to restore that energy to you.
As a Newbie, I am always searching online for articles that can help me. Thank you
