The UR community seems to have a lot of questions about RB cards. What role will they ultimately play in the game? Will RB always be very rare and expensive? Why were these things implemented in such a manner? Here, we will try to answer all of these questions and more.
Q: What is an RB card?
A: RB stands for ""Rebirth."" They are rare versions of existing cards with the same stats, but alternate art and a blue nameplate to differentiate their status.
Q: The first RB card was really hard to get, and it's very expensive! Are they all going to be like that?
A: In a word, no. RB cards will have varying availability.
Q: I want some RB cards. How can I get them?
A: Each RB card will have a unique way of being awarded. Some will be given as rewards to top achievers in certain modes, others may drop at a low rate from packs. Generally speaking, they will be released in a very limited way, but additional RB cards may be produced at times.
Q: The Leader Wars event in which Nanook RB was made available was very expensive! Will other events that award RB cards be priced similarly?
A: We are considering lowering the prices for many of these events. We have been paying special attention to community feedback regarding this matter.
Q: Will RB cards do anything special?
A: Collecting 100% of normal cards and all RB cards will grant a special new ranking, Phoenix. This rank is higher than Colossus and lower than Divinity.
Q: Why did Boostr decide to introduce such rare items into a game that's supposed to be free to play? They are very difficult to get for an ordinary player. Is it fair?
A: Every online game needs end-game content. Players who have met many of the big goals that UR has to offer will appreciate having another very challenging goal to aim for. This will also forge new relationships between skilled players who are able to win these cards through special events, and superstar collectors. Meanwhile, RB cards don't take anything away from a typical player, as the regular versions of these cards are still readily available at their normal price, and it's possible to enjoy the great new art on these cards without having them in your collection. You can compare them to a foil version of a card in a physical card game.

original announcement post needs to be edited to include this info in order to improve the transfer of information

This announcement would be bothersome except I'm already numb and apathetic to everything this game has tried to do over the last half a year. This could be as annoying as the DJ Korps issue, but we as an ENG community are already used to it.
You know the first RB cards had to be redeemed within the first hour of the tournament. The second it was possible to complete 10 matches people had already done it. Why is it the community sees these things, but the people who run the game do not? I saw 3 pages of posts with people saying "got both!" thinking they would receive a Nanook RB when they were already given out 12 hours prior.
I get it, UR is trying. But why is it that every announcement recently has been flawed, been mistranslated, or has caused major backlash in the community. We haven't had a unified announcement across UR since Events were created.
