After much feedback about the difficulty of getting hold of Rebirth cards, we’ve decided to make them more accessible by standardizing their distribution. Rebirth Cards are versions of original cards aimed at replacing the originals in new players’ collections and in the packs:
-They have the same stats.
-They have improved graphics.
-They have the same level of rareness as their original version and are available in all the Shop’s packs apart from New Blood ones.
As of today, you can get hold of a Rebirth card in the Shop's packs as a replacement to its original which will no longer be distributed.
“Ah but you have to pay to get hold of these cards!”
Don’t worry, next week you’ll have the chance to get hold of them in a Leader Wars or Coliseum event without spending a dime.
“OK, but there’s an entrance free for Leader Wars, isn’t there?”
Yes, there is an entrance fee but in Clintz only, which means you can keep your credits for New Blood packs and promotions. And some people manage to get hold of tickets
Here are the broad outlines of the new way to get hold of Rebirth cards:
- an Rb announcement in the shop's packs
- the original version will cease to be distributed
- a feature event the following week for a catch-up session
This will make Rebirth cards more accessible and will breathe new life into your collection. It will also increase the value of the original cards.
“So will the original versions now be Collector cards?”
No, existing original versions do not have Collector status as there is a Rebirth version of them with identical stats in the packs.
Finally, please contact our Customer Support Team if you've bought (and not won) a Rebirth card.
You'll be reimbursed to the Market value of the Rebirth card.
We appreciate your interest in Urban Rivals.
EDIT: After some discussion, we have decided to change the refund policy to include those who won RB cards.
If you won an RB card: Please contact support, and include a screenshot of your card history showing that you won the card. Your compensation will be based on the price of the card prior to Rebirth 2.0 announcement, as follows:
syd noze rb : 200k
ashley rb : 90K
baby q rb : 120K
Wardog Rb : 250k
Nanook Rb : 500k
vermyn N Rb : 350K
Striker Rb : 380k
If you have purchased an RB card: Please contact support, and include a screenshot of your market history showing the price you paid for the card.
We appreciate all of your suggestions and feedback in regards to this matter, and thank you for your patience. For a thorough explanation as to why we feel the RB 2.0 initiative was necessary and will be a big benefit to the game, please see the following thread: http://www.urban-rivals.com/en/community/forum/?mode=viewsubject&forum_page=0&id_subject=2550671&subject_page=last#answers
Thank you and happy gaming to you all.

i was really mad when all this trouble comed up and in place of simple "sorry" for all troubles i got message from kate in friends feed which said that there are new cards in packs...
For first 24 hours we didn't got anything else that this first message in forum. I'm thankful that you are the one who cares and who are speaking with us, at least i got feeling that staff cares not only about money but what we would like to see.
He's not alone. I still see "UR only cares about money" messages on these forums, and I want to understand why some people feel that way and what we can do to solve the problem.
seriously ghelas??? this is still a mystery to you and the guys at head office????
stop disagreeing with the people that say they see a problem is the first step. If you guys can't begin to see their perspectives, then there is no problem as far as you guys are concerned, and therefore no solution you try or suggest can address the concerns that you guys can't understand.
i've explained it in the past, you've even acknowledged it in the past that you were starting to undestand.
i think what you really meant to say is just "how can we solve it" without the i" want to understand why..."
I have an idea staff, be more open with us players and give us access to something more in packs... I think it's about inequality in this game and that's why people are upset.
For example you obtain a pack worth 70k.
another player opens and get's 20k.
furthermore there is no opportunity for players to win bigs because it's all about "winning" some players lack that ability and which makes people leave because they have no choice.... it's called "getting nowhere" situation.
I understand that bigs should never be easy to obtain but over the recent 4 months, bigs have been shooting down in price, so I don't see any problem with giving more opportunity.
and if you wanted a card to shoot up to 10M it be easy for you staff because it's only about distribution and proportion of cards, nothing more.
If there was only 10 doubles of a card in the game.... prices would be reaching a high 100-200M.
it's not hard... but just think about it.
But there will never be equality unless players can win equal prizes for playing.
It should just be based on how much you play instead of luck.
Yeah, almost everything is based on luck- packs, Elo lottery, tokenz system, even when you thought that there are first "no-lottery based prizes event" called leader wars, unlucky players- who didn' t sold their Rb cards got much less than lucky ones who sold them.
