Sorry for being late to ask the EN community, but we'd like to ask you a question about the future of Rebirth cards. My opinion is that they are currently not 'good' for the game, especially for the Collectors ones... but I personally love their illustrations, so simply deleting those seems impossible to us. So it's really a difficult decision. We'd like to ask you: what would you prefer we do?
Here are 3 'solutions', please feel free to talk here about it and vote for whichever you like the most.
Have a nice weekend!
The poll will be live starting at 11AM. [editor's note: the poll appears to be live now]

Cosidering the existence of Beserkergirl , Kiki & Rass ,who have 2 tpes, one a collector card & one normal card, i prefer make the original artwork cards a collector, and then Rb replace them.
Anyone who agree with me,tell the staff to choose this
This is so much worse than Advent Calendar topic. Moderators insulting each other, another guy making such a ridiculous points against removing Rb cards..
We had so much trouble with rb cards from the day they were created, so i'm glad if they are going to removed.
There was so much wrong with Rb cards, how many even know that admins had to manually each weak put and remove Rb card versions of ELO bans if their regular card was banned? Poor Striker was not in same category as Striker Rb for many times.
And from the story-point: what sense would be in having Rb cards with different stats ?
youd end up with 2 copies of a Toro card
i think there are several options available that avoid the whole challenge of fair compensation.
path of least resistance at this point is to carry on as it is, but Rbs were problematic from the start and this change is needed in order to correct things for the future. so some change needs to happen
i think some of the things that i think needs to happen is
1)keep all art somehow
2)drop the Rb label and future Rbs and current Rbs simply become normal cards
things that will need to be addressed
1)fair compensation if this is the route they go. im hoping they actually pick a solution that completely avoids the need for compensations.
For Glibon Dashra Sakrh's sake. take out all my RBs without compensation, i'll get over it, but please dont miss the opportunity to make old cards playable! You may redraw Yaman's art but as long as he's 4/4 noability he's still ugly to me
Izy, I don't think the mods insulted each other, just looks like some misunderstanding about what part of a post was directed at whom. Even mods aren't immune to these things, they happen to the best of us.
I'm not convinced that it's bad when people present opposing points of view on the forums. In some cases, it helps the community come to some good conclusions.
"And from the story-point: what sense would be in having Rb cards with different stats ?"
From the story point: UR is a game about how all of these characters dramatically grow, evolve, and become more capable of kicking each others butts. So instead of saying "This old character is so irrelevant that they will never be used even by a new player ever again," we are saying "during their stay in Clint City, this character has grown and become a more amazing fighter, and here's how it happened." To me the word "Rebirth" implies something more similar to "Evolution," but more more extreme. This is what I wish the concept revolved around. I think a lot of players would have liked to see it.
Another option to consider is to simply retire cards from most of the formats....something similar was being tried in FR
so current RBs and future RBs can get stats redone (if they were unplayable or op) or just kept and the old ones just remain for collection purposes.
I would have voted, but I literally JUST found out about this... So, yeah.
First let me start by saying I am FOR the RB system rather than against it. I love the thought of updating old cards, but if we're talking about changing the system anyway:
I say the best option is a combination of 1 and 2.
Get rid of the current RB system (with or without compensation IDC) and replace the old cards themselves with better artwork and better stats. Update one every now and then instead of a new blood (example: one week we'll have 3 New Bloods and a RB instead of 4 New Bloods; this way no one is overwhelmed by the new cards since we were already expecting the new cards) and no one will have an issue. OK, some will have an issue, but some people just have an issue with progress.
I LOVE the Lino Borsa RB artwork, but I'm never gonna use him because his stats are just plain worthless. And the current system doesn't work for getting rid of old artworks, because the old artworks are still there, just on a technically different card. I can still use Nanook just like I can use Nanook RB. Nothing has changed, everything just got more complicated.
Alternatively, if UR is still so gung-ho about keeping old art, you can make the one thing every fan has been asking about and let us choose artworks for the card while we're playing them and you can keep ALL of the artwork ingame. I understand it's a coding nightmare and that you don't want to do it, but it's an option.
