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.
@elite cr: bear in mind that the announcements are written in French and then translated into the other supported languages. This sometimes results in language that's really precise in French but . . . unclear . . . in English. I think you can safely read that as "latest" collectors.
I don't care so much about noodile the card per say, but more the trend now of the last two CR announcements including clan staples.
Though as for noodile herself, you'd probably see less of her if there were more viable options in roots. I've played through the 250 wins mission with roots and I got to say that the 4-5 star options are either very average or permabanned (the only half decent high star is probably lou) leaving you pretty much the 2-3*'s to make a deck out of. Thus why everytime you see roots its almost always that single halfdeck.
Almost everyone expected Jackie to go Cr sooner or later, but I was more surprised to see Tanaereva go Cr before did. I understand the reason why the staff does this: to keep overpowered cards from floating around, but this only makes it harder on newer players. You've already taken most of the strongest cards out of the packs, and the Market is too high for most starting players, so this only makes players coming in after these cards more jealous and less endowed.
