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 read the comments WOTC. You are alienating your fan base with a product we spend money on. This is a great tool for us to see our inventory and plan decks ahead of time for new releases.
Changing that on players is literally saying to us we are not allowed to enjoy the game outside of Arena, which this represents for us.
Hello ! Another up here, would be really nice to have access to dump collection by any ways.
Please reinstate the debugging listed here for the Player.log file. Really need to be able to list my collection outside of the client.
FIX THIS NOW
Please do something about this Wizards. It’s really annoying. Thank you very much.
I don't know if its the devs or the execs doing this ****, but seriously. You have a nearly great game on your hands here WotC, but you seem to be trying your hardest to kill it. It's behavior like this that keep "In MTG dying" the top searched result on Google (seriously, it took about ten other searches about MTG for that to stop being the first suggested result for me.)
Fix this, I know you don't like your Free To Play players, but you **** well need them far more than you need your whales, because without them you have no whales. Especially on a game like this one, where you Entire game is going to be based on the health of your queues. If the people leave the game (and I'm **** close to it) and you can't grow your player base (new player that is nearing the end of putting up with this ****) your queues are going to be empty, and your whales will leave and take their money with them. I don't know how this is still difficult to understand, pretty sure this is common knowledge on F2P games at this point. You make the game with tons of money sinks, but also with lots of good content and opportunities for the Free To Plays. Free to Plays keep your game healthy and spread the good word, which nets whales, who sink money into the game hand over fist. Pandering to the whales isn't going to net you more money, putting extra pressure on the whales is just going to drive the Free players out, and that will in turn drive the whales out. WotC what the **** are you doing?
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!
