Although rumors had been flying around for the past few weeks, the news still took many of the city’s inhabitants by surprise. Smokey and Amiral Py have just announced they’re leaving Clint City to set off on a voyage around the world in a boat they did up together. From Wednesday, December 23rd 2009, these characters will no longer be available in the shop’s packs. However, players who already own them can continue to use them as normal. Sales of the two characters on the market will be blocked until the morning of Friday, December 18th.
Price is hard to guess since we've not had a "good" common turn into a CR for a long time. The market hadn't really priced the possibility of him going CR into his value, or at least hadn't done so to the same extent as other cards until very recently, so it should be a larger than usual jump. Not the 3000% of a Terry, but more than the 300% of an Alec :-)
I remember when I first started and my starter deck had Amiral Py. I still have him and I'm glad I get to see him go cr.
I remember back when I just started UR and had not bought any credits. I made my first profits buying Amiral Py at lvl 1 and selling him to kate at lvl 3 for profit to kate. Good times... good times.
Smokey's at 22k, Amiral Py is round about 7k.
Yeh they're not going to be too high in the near future.
