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.
I have a few questions.
1) With the changes to Rb are you planning to release rbs more regularly or even have a large rb release where multiple rbs are released. Also are you planning to release all the old cards as rb at some stage and does this include Crs?
2) Will the original artwork cards get some way to show there different e.g an add on to the name, a small (classic) lable, different colour e.c.t
3) Will the classic artwork be given out in any way, or is it still available in anyway at the moment.
4) Will classic cards be playable in the updated UR and how will they look?
ALso of note Next time an rbs releases cancleing all sales of the old card would be a good idea to stop people quickly buying them from other people.
I had an idea, it might make things easier for new players if the rb is removed from the rb cards and they are treated as the normal version of those cards and instead the classic artwork gets something added to the card. Eg instead of nanook rb and nanook its nanook and nanook (classic)
Or how about simply make the switch on the art and not do anything else about it
then develop a tool that allows people to choose the art THEY see, the opponent still sees that new art
people have been asking for the ability to select art for years now -- give it to them
it allows you to modernize the game, give the veterans a feature that they wanted to have long ago, and avoid the whole Rb thing that has so far been equivalent to stumbling around in the dark
