As part of the final stages of the shop’s revamp, the New Blood and Mega packs will be merged into one for ease of use, and this is how the pack will look:
New Blood Pack – 5 cards from the latest 45 releases – at least 1 guaranteed Rare card – Price: 28 credits
As far as the exclusive cards are concerned, they will ALL be distributed in exactly the same way:
- via a limited edition feature pack available from 12 to 72 hours max.
- a fortnight later, via the flash missions; the special card will only be available in the Elite packs.
Then, two weeks after that, the character will be widely available EXCEPT in the New Blood packs.
The special cards will NO LONGER interfere with the New Blood releases and will never form part of these packs.
In terms of general packs for new bloods, i think this is a good choice. however, it allows Special releases like Cannibal Jo or Dakota to retain their astronomical price well after being released into the general card pool, as their are only available in packs EXCEPT for New Blood. For the devs of UR, its a smart move, for players, its not as good for people who want to obtain these exclusive special cards early, but it is good for regular New Blood buyers.
Im always waiting for exclusive releases to go down in price anyway after their wider release - Al-Lycs, Rage, Marshal i have all gotten after their price has dropped.
