Offended by a rude remark made about her at the last clan meeting, Jackie has decided to leave the town for good to find a place that’s more open to diversity (without saying exactly where). Unable to establish whether there’s a link between the two decisions, Noodile announced just a few hours later that she too was leaving Clint City.
From Monday, 6 December 2010, Jackie and Noodile 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 Wednesday, 1 December.
Well, jackie was expected but I'm not so sure about this new developing trend of taking out staples instead of some useless card.
Taking out OP cards is one thing, but cutting non-OP staples like noodile and smokey seems unnecessary. Also, cutting out the useless cards like the old trend means that when you buy a pack you have less chance of getting something totally unusable, and when you do get something terrible that at least if you hold onto it then one day it may become CR and worth something.
If this new trend continues though, you can bet that the prices for staples will rise and the useless cards prices will tank. Not sure thats a good thing for the game, especially where it concerns getting new players in.
The future price of any CR cards depends on 2 things:
1. how many copies are in circulation (when jackie will have the same price as the current one of lyse terria, LT will be worth tens of millions)
2. the market alliances and wars between the different investors.
I'm pretty glad about this unexpected departure as we will probably see Jackie less and less in DTs.
Well imho the best cr cards for a LONG time, uppers and roots both needed a useable cr, and other than kiki, which we all know costs a lot of money, there was not a single roots cr that i would have used in my deck, and im sure many people agree, jackie is probably going to be expensive, possibly more than tanaereva due to supply and demand, however, i still see her in many event & T2 decks in the forseeable future
good luck jackie and noodile ^.^
