Broken Logs in 2021.8.0.3855
Since 2021.8.0.3855 update many things 3rd party devs rely on in log is gone.
The most painful endpoints we currently miss are:
*Draft related endpoints
We understand that seemingly your backend undergone refactoring and there's no more remote procedure PlayerInventory, but there's definitely it's analogue, and please make it write data to the log.
To summarize, we need following data from log:
* Player's collection
* Player's actions in Draft
* Player's inventory updates
* Players decks WITH DECK STRUCTURE (not like now, only names and some diagnostic data).
Please solve this!

How can you develop an MTG Esport game without a tool for game play performance and player development. Then is there 3rd Party apps developer they do your part with a lot passion. So pleas if you competitive gaming want and you got not the tools to support us players . Give other at least the info that they need . So we have the chance to improve ur play .
Still looking forward to getting this fixed. I found these tracker features extremely useful and it is really disappointing to have them turned off. Especially now that there is some work arounds for windows machines and I feel like I am being punished with lesser functionality for playing on a Mac.
I hope they'll fix this soon, I really miss the added features and functionality I used to get from the untapped.gg tracker. nothing works now :(

Can we get a comment from the MTG Arena team that tells us you have heard this and are either working on fixing the log issue or at least explaining why it was broken?
Having card and collection data available in the log file made for a very robust group of 3rd Party sites for enthusiasts that only enhanced the game and encouraged more player participation and purchases from WTOC and Arena. In fact, several of the websites have additional links to purchase MTG Paper products.
Please give us some information on a workaround, or a proper API for the sites to use to compile our collection data!
These were vastly useful tools that allowed me to see things like % of sets owned, and make purchasing decisions. Please reenable them!
Please fix this, the trackers were a very useful tool and it is really sad they are gone!
The whole plan was to destroy the 3rd party tools when they went to memory logging. The 3rd party tools were getting meta data out too quick for WotC. Collection/reward info was just collateral damage. Instead of making better sets/advanced pre-release testing, this was their fix.
Ironically, the tools have been able to track win/loss of decks, so the meta info is still out there... it just destroyed our collection tools =(
Please get this fixed wizards. You don't have good collection management in your game, at least let other people do it for you. It was fine before, but now you broke it again.
How is it that Wizards keep breaking their own game and integration with their partners with such an awful way of dealing with their own implementation. How hard is it to just present an API instead of tools having to scavenge through the logs, this is 2021, not 2012.
Please fix this so we can get our logger apps back.
will not draft until this is fixed.
Part of the fun for me in MTGA is tracking my collection and optimizing my rewards to some degree which is no longer possible or much harder now. Would be appreciated for this to be restored.
Collection tracking makes it a lot more fun to play and watch my collection grow. Please fix this issue!
These third party apps are what my friends and I use to draft our collections and keep playing games on MTGA. These services encourage me to grow my collection as well as get more friends playing on Arena. We desperately need this bug to be fixed so we can keep playing with our cards and finding new ways to enjoy all of the cards on Arena. Please fix this soon!
These logs also affect trackers, which are groundbreaking tools for limited. Many people I know find limited on Arena to be too complicated without these helpful tools.

Did Hasbro do this out of spite or incompetence? Both are pretty bad.
untapped tracker is working now, i wonder why other still dont
MTGA should be AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to playing a physical game of MTG. If that means that we must rely on 3rd party tools to assist us in growing our collection WotC should embrace this and make it as easy as possible for the devs to support. Unless of course they are actually planning to introduce all of the functionality provided by 3rd parties into the game, which would be a horrible stomp on the 3rd party tools and probably cost them players.
I started playing a month ago and was super happy about how useful the helpers were to figure out which packs I should open, which decks I should play, etc.
I am waiting to see if MTGA fixes the logs and those helpers work again, otherwise I'll quit.
WotC just killed drafting with your friends online, which was one of THE reasons we were even playing MTGA and wanting to grow our collections, gee thanks
Raz, I'm sorry. I accidentally flagged this idea. I didn't mean to. I was trying to read the comments. This one actually interests me.
