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 don't quite understand why some players are complaining about the fact that #volkan has a mission.
Those players who had her early were able to use a Big-tier card in EFC & DT and an exclusive card in general, or sell her at a high price.
Her price was inevitably going to drop as with all 'exclusive rares' once she hit regular packs.
Essentially, by buying/ not selling her early you were paying a premium in the difference between her inflated release price and her price weeks down the line to be able to use her without waiting even in modes she wouldnt be allowed and insurance not to get burned if she went Cr.
Now that there are missions you are basically refunded the premium in the form of a second copy of #volkan.
"Oh but I had 4 copies of her so 1 #volkan isnt enough" if you stockpiled #volkans trying to earn clintz you were betting that she would go cr super quickly and you would turn a huge profit, you gambled on red and it landed on black.
Think about this scenario, inSane:
I spend all my creds to buy 5 special packs. No #Volkan. I spend my own money to buy enough creds to buy 5 more packs. No #volkan. I spend just enough money to afford enough creds for 2 more packs. I finally get a #Volkan!
Then they announce the 75 wins mission for #volcan.
That was a hypothetical, by the way. And sure, if I spend $20+ on an online card game to get one card, then yeah, shame on me. But people do. And when decisions like that are fueled by staff suggesting (intentional or not) that this card might be super rare or go cr and that there will be no missions, etc. It just feels bad man...
I think the problem is staff saying that they aren't going to do one thing (#Volkan mission), and then turning around and doing it a week later. Especially when they incentivized people to spend their money on a limited-time pack, they should have stuck to what they said in the first place. For me, personally, I'm happy for the opportunity to obtain #Volkan, but it's not very difficult to see why people are upset at being misinformed about the availability of a character.
I am here just to send some virtual love to staff! Complainers are really loud (and sometimes I understand them, like now, atleast for some portion), I might not be cool with everything you do, but still I am having fun even after cca 1,25 decades of on and off playing.
When they put the cards in flash missions, it sounds easy. But, when you read the requirement, it's not easy anymore.
1. 3 wins in tourney
You have 5 days, means 5 x 12 = 60 tourney available.
But, only 60/3 = 20 winners available
2. +15 in survivor
It's absolutely different with 15 wins. You can imagine that your wins should more than your losses. Besides, you should face many collector cards in the mission.
3. 75 wins in free fight
Here, you don't need to think about your win rate. The problem is time for playing. In 1 hour, you can get 1 - 5 wins, depends on your skill and card. It's mean, you need time between 1 - 3 days. Wow, that's a lot of effort. And now, volkan has been announced to be a collector card, so many people will try to win this free fight.
Please be wise for winning 75 free fight, otherwise you can get sick.
