August Premium Card: EMP
Cost: 100g.
Description: Immobilize all mechanical units on the target hex and all surrounding hexes for 2 turns. Effected units receive 1hp damage.

Additions to the friends system:
-After clicking the Add button and the window pops up to type the player's name, the editbox will now be selected so players can immediately start typing rather than having to click it first.
-The enter button now works as well as clicking Okay after typing in a name to add a friend

Private Game lobbies and Invites:
-Instead of create/join private games using names, there is now just a Create button and no custom game name
-When creating a private game, there is now a clarification window that pops up, explaining that you can use the invite system now
-The first invites have arrived! When in a private game lobby, click the Send Invite button to invite players to your game. They will receive a pop-up window with a 60second timer where they can accept and decline the invite.
-All status messages can be seen by the lobby host, such as whether a player accepts/declines/times out on an invite

Known issues:
-We are still experiencing some issues with the notification window at the bottom of the screen. We hope to have this fixed in the next patch. The only issues are that some friend notifications may not show up -- it should in no way effect playability
-It is possible to experience some errors when creating repeated game lobbies

Plans for the upcoming patch(es):
-fix the issues above of course!
-make esc work to close minor windows such as the Add Friend window, just like enter works for the okay button now
-check box for "Don't Show This Message Again" on the pop-up when creating a private game
-When inviting players to a game, we will be adding a (show) "friends only" button and an editbox where you can type in player names and the list will filter as the name is being typed
-Add Friend button on the player finder window
-Parties, custom chatrooms, and accessing co-op games and team match-made games via parties (next big update patch)

All looks great! Glad to see the new friend system is progressing along.

I do think that EMP belongs in the debuff section. Also can you make EMP and Hellfire available for trade?
