Hello Clint City,
On the menu this week and for this week ONLY:
3 Hardcore missions to be carried out over the course of the week (missions close on Friday at 11.59pm).
These 3 missions will give you the chance to get your hands on 3 awesome cards: Atkinson, No Love and #Volkan
So, let’s get the ball rolling!
And good luck to you all!
I think what staff meant was we will not get those 5 Missions to get #Volkan.
What I can say for sure with confidence without asking any Admin to confirm knowing them is that we will not get #Volkan in NewBlood and she is not in the Elite, Titanium or Armageddon packs unless stated otherwise in an announcement.
I feel it can be damaging to trust in promotions and they should mention a "subjective to change disclaimer", but nevertheless I think this is a good thing for you, me or possibly any player who unfortunately was not available for whatever reason to get #Volkan. It benefits you if do not have #Volkan since she is easier to get thanks to staff decision.

I like the change, because now i can easily get a copy of Volkan, but i also feel cheated, because that was stated at the weekend of her release, meaning the special packs were still available. So me and probably a lot of other players thought "better buy another pack, otherwise you will never get this 6+ million card."
And the statement, that there's a specific reason for the lack of missions, and the instagram Q&A, where the answer to the question about Volkan going Cr was just "...", made her price go up to 11 million, because people thought she would go Cr.
On top of that, the mission to get her is THE easiest of all the missions for the special big cards so far. Even easier than Crook's and look at his price now. Winning 75 fights in free fight with no restrictions about your deck can be done in a few hours, even considering a 50/50 win rate.
I can't imagine how the players feels now, who traded their 16 million clint Crs for 3 Volkans.
@CapyKami I understand what you say, and I agree with you for the most part. Volkan was supposed to be super rare and unobtainable through missions. But I also get why the staff made up these hardcore missions (Even if Volkan's one isn't that hardcore), and it's due to th backlash. People were still complaining to this day that Volkan was too expensive, that we should get missions, etc. I haven't seen such a backlash in a long time, and Volkan was indeed increasing her prize at an alarming speed. The staff now crrates a mission to obtain her, and people still complain, thia tike about it being too easy, kying to the players, etc. No matter what they do, people are always gonna complain, so let's just enjoy this missions and take the opportunity to get at least 1 of these cards

@HirschLD I also agree with you on some parts, but I think the "No matter what they do, people are always gonna complain" argument shouldn't be used here, because it makes the players sound like ungrateful, always angry people. Complaining about stuff in this game is a good thing, because the community keeps UR alive, so the staff needs to know what's on our mind and needs to get feedback, positive and negative.
My problem is that they should have 100% known what would be the reaction to Volkan getting no missions, in terms of the price and player's backlash. This isn't the first release of this kind and they knew what would happen, yet still decided against missions and gave vague answers, that made people believe she will go Cr. That should have also be clear from the start.
So then they decided to do a 180 and make her available for anyone who has a few hours to spare over the next week. Without any statement why or a compensation for people who bought packs after the statement about the missions.
tl;dr: Doing the exact opposite of something that people complain about, isn't always a good thing and definitely doesn't make you immune against criticism.
I mean , its good that the staff made some missions and all but.. #Volkan wasn't supposed to get one.. that was the whole point why her price was so high.
Her price being high isnt bad.. if every card that comes out gets dirt cheap than there's no ... accomplishment in getting her?
Thw other 2 missions are ok , but her missikn? Its like giving one volkan for free to every player..
