The following list shows all changes made within the last year. All entries are written by Scott Hardie.

September 6, 2020: I fixed a bug preventing the "win a concert in 15 minutes" play rule from being unlocked in auto-generated concerts. (Thanks for helping me find this, Erik!)

September 5, 2020: The page for tomorrow's live tournament to celebrate the game's sixth anniversary has been created.

March 8, 2020: The "Ones" and "Twos" themes have been renamed "One" and "Two."

February 22, 2020: I added a new trade rule. To unlock it, take an exclusive artist from an opponent.

February 22, 2020: I added clarification to the rules text of Each and Protect that they do not reset the expiration date of exclusive artists, like trade concerts normally do.

February 22, 2020: I fixed a bug that would set the wrong new expiration date on an exclusive artist when it's brought to a trade concert.

February 10, 2020: I am doubling the rate at which artists get added to the game, now two per week. I will make this change retroactive to the game's beginning, but it will take me some time to fill the backlog.

January 13, 2020: I fixed a bug preventing some new "We Built This City" tournament concerts from spawning.

January 5, 2020: Amazon links have been removed from artist modals.

December 10, 2019: When you're selecting an artist to make exclusive after achieving a rock block, the page now lists artists who you previously made exclusive.

November 12, 2019: I fixed a bug preventing new "We Built This City" tournament concerts from spawning.

October 7, 2019: I fixed a bug with concert subscription data not clearing, related to yesterday's change.

October 6, 2019: The "Completed Concerts" subscription (available in Manage Subscriptions) has been split in two. You can now opt to be notified when your own concerts end, or when other players' concerts end, or both. If you make the final move to end a concert, you won't be notified either way, since you're already looking at the page. I have pre-populated both subscriptions with the same data as the defunct "Completed Concerts" subscription, so if you want it to continue working the same way that it did, then you don't need to do anything. Thanks for the suggestion to change this, Erik!

October 6, 2019: I fixed a bug with the "win a concert lasting for fifty turns or more" play rule not displaying correctly in the turn log in Overtime concerts.

October 4, 2019: I fixed a bug preventing new "We Built This City" tournament concerts from spawning.
