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 had another idea about Cr rbs. Incase a discussion happens about them.
When an rb of a cr is released, if they ever decide to release them, then the original copy of the Cr becomes untradeable (its still usable unless they decide to make all the original cards unusable in the new version of UR). Everyone who owns the Cr already gets a button or something to press which gives them one copy of the rb version of the cr, this can be done for each copy of the cr they own but only once per copy.
Also everyone who gets the Rb version in the future will have a button to press which gives them 1 copy of the untradeable original version.
The rb of the cr will be treated in exactly the same way as the cr e.g not available it packs, reward for ELO and tokens e.c.t
p.s To be honest I would love this to be a how all rbs work lol.
A bit off topic, but I would love to see a way to change the artwork of a character once its levels are maxed. I think such a small update would add a whole new interactive aspect to the game concept in that it would allow people to use multiple different versions graphically of the same card
