Hello Urban Rivals players,
In response to recent inquiries about RB card changes, we have decided to share some new information with you.
One of our biggest goals is to modernize Urban Rivals and make it marketable to a new generation of players. We strongly believe that this is in the interests of all of our players. In an indirect way, more players means more valuable collections for everyone, as well as new friends, guild mates, and of course, rivals! In the course of our development of modernization of UR, we came across a big problem. Some of our old art is not up to current standards and technical specifications. We had an urgent need to start cycling old art out of the game, and we decided to change the purpose of RB cards a little in order to help us meet that goal. We apologize for the abruptness of the change and any unintended effects it had on the collection values of some of our players.
We would like to share with you a small preview of UR's work-in-progress card redesign. This great initiative is what made the conversion to more modern, high-res art a necessity. We think you will be pleased with the results:
Regarding compensation for players who have purchased or won RBs, we have some updated information in the Rebirth 2.0 thread for you as well. We believe we have found a solution that will satisfy the needs of every player who has supported our original release of RB cards. Thank you for your patience, and all of your ideas, which helped us to arrive at a good solution for everyone.
Ew look is quite good. it is possible that clans cards shou;d be in difrent colour for example Uppers green background card. Berzerk red background card, Pussycats pink.
in this picture we see all cards with blue background and cr with orange.
mabt one color one cla what do you think it is possible?
I dont think that Color background necessary because it will make the game look more childish
and Ghelas brother i got a question for u
What is in down of the Cards i mean the Junkz Rave ,Allstars Stadium and La junta Headquarters or something
Is that a sign of arcade Mode or what ?
New Idea is Nice but i dont think so Card background Colour according to clan wont be nice it will make the game more childish xD
Also I got a question for the Staffs
What is in down of the Cards i mean that Allstars Stadium,Junkz Rave and La junta headquarters (is that sign for Arcade Mode or what?)
@Izy79: Ideally, we want to end up with an art style that's appealing to UR's more mature audience, and the younger one as well. Don't forget that many of the veteran players here started UR 3 or 4 years ago. We were all a little younger then.
@TheDoomBug: The old art is part of UR's rich history, and we didn't want to simply remove it from the game. The old cards will now have counterparts that are fully functional in the graphics overhaul, which is what's important.
So I take that to mean the old cards will not be playable, but are not being removed. Is this correct? That raises a lot of questions that I don't know if you have the authority to answer at this time.
1. What will be the point of having an old version card? Mere collection and trading, yes?
2. If the old cards are to be preserved, will there be means for newer players to obtain them, a la Cr?
3. If the old cards are not obtainable in packs, why are they not classified as Cr?
4. The Big 5 are all of the outdated art style. Will they (or any Cr) be receiving Rb versions as well?
5. Inversely, will Rb cards be ineligible for Cr status? The image suggests not.
6. In case the answer to 4 is yes, will the Soliel cards be ineligible for Rbs due to their publisher arrangement?
7. Also related to 4, how would the rarities of such cards be factored? The original pre-cr rarity or default to rare?
8. Will Rbs be limited to only cards with incompatible art for the new age? No Huracan or Riots, etc.
I would appreciate a response, but I understand if your not allowed to or if these changes are too early in-work to have finalized answers.
