The biggest rave this year is just about to start. With artists and DJs a go–go, as well as party-goers of all persuasions, it’s gonna be one hell of a night!
The question is will the Sentinel be able to handle the chaos that is sure to follow?!
Nena sneaks out dragging her brother Beck along with her: the portal twins from the Skeelz have arrived. Roots sculptor, Fudge unveils his latest 100% recycled creations but finds himself overshadowed by the following of new Junkz DJ, Skyler.
As the Sentinel’s only mounted police officer, it’s Lacasse’s job to control any outbursts that might occur during the show.

Speaking about NB missions, it will hurt the players twice
besides the obvious of having only one week to unlock it, there's also a second issue arising
there was always that second weekend when the newest release has hit the streets and the previous one got deflated, you had it easier to pick up what's missing in the last moment, now that won't happen
As buying NBs to unlock missions and then selling them for a tiny loss was a game I've been playing since I realized that kept missions unlocked, to me this is just an annoying delay and a message that I shouldn't waste credits aiming for the newest cards. It also makes buying multiple NB packs unappealing for a week since you could get unsellable doubles. Don't need two copies of a card if you're only playing with them. I think this delay won't change the high price NB have on the market.
The problem with trying to throw off rich players is that it's a crapshoot if it'll actually help new players. What is only an annoyance to someone with a stock of clintz could be an insurmountable wall to someone with less.
i dont believe this was done to help new players. i think it was done to give credit users a tiny edge over those who do not
@mihall... then sell the card on and take the kate tax as a hit if you want the mission. or buy, get the mission, hang on to the card.
and so we are back to where we all probably should be, watching how it goes
already people are having issues because card prices may 1) drop and because card prices may 2) not drop.... well only one of this can be true.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant the possible raising of NB card prices (or to be exact, the prolonged time their prices are high) could keep new players from certain cards. Sure, nothing in this release, but imagine a card like Pericles or Noctezuma released in this state. This gives manipulators time to evaluate the cards and prepare. Purely speculation, of course. We'll see next week.
This actually discourages me to buy credits. Not every NB release is going to have cards that everyone wants. That means I'm stuck with Skyler and can't sell. Add that to the fact that I wanted Fudge instead and it doesn't make for a happy customer. It's leaving luck as all the players can count on for the first week. By the time I get Fudge, I'll be bored and agitated. I'll get him for my collection, but the passion to override luck and work hard to obtain the cards, is diminished.
i imagine a lot of people will adjust by treating next Friday and the new unofficial NB day. it might take a couple of cycles to get there, but i have a feeling the bulk of pack sales will shift towards the end on the week for future releases.
