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]

I did mention in an earlier post that banning them from play everywhere, excluding events, could be viable. This is great because the entertaining events revolving around old/weak cards will endure, players get to keep the cards in their collection, and the value of the cards is going to be more or less maintained. Maybe we could band together and propose stat/story improvements + "mode locks" as a superior solution, and see if the developers will be interested.
I personally feel like it would give a second life to these old characters, and some players (myself included) would be eager to get their hands on packs containing RBs. It could generate a little extra revenue for the game for a relatively small amount of work, which I think we can all agree is a good thing.
Conclusion from previous posts in this thread,
1. The consensus agrees that the original artwork honors their previous artist. So if we happen to remove them in-game at least a compilation of some sort is needed.
2. In our developers' standpoint, skins is a no-go since it would take so much 'unnecessary' data that could have been dedicated to more important expansions of the game.
3. Given the small window of opportunity to vote, we didn't get a majority of turnout from last month's average active players. (Correct me if I'm wrong)
So based from the poll results a total of 514 votes were cast:
232 are in favor of replacing old illustration by Rebirth ones and deleting Rb from the game, with a clintz compensation.
213 are in favor of modifying all Rebirth stats with alternatives ones.
69 are in favor of the Rb System
Based from these it is safe to say that a few are in favor of the current Rb System. So we are left with two choices:
1. Scratch the whole Rb thing. (Compensation makes it more complicated, so i believe a separate poll is needed for this)
2. Revamp the Rb system.
With 232 against 213, a small margin of votes, it's inconclusive whether the majority will be happy with whatever the result. So I believe a re-poll is necessary but now with only these two top choices. Make it compulsory, if not possible urge our active players to vote up until majority (50%+1) of this month's average active online players cast their votes.
1: I'm not arguing for totally getting rid of the artwork, just updating the cards themselves with the artwork. Put the old stuff in some compilation like you suggested, I'm not stopping you, but the original point of RB cards is to update the artwork. So go all-in or don't go. The current system just complicates things and is creating needless chaos in the market.
2: I did mention that it is a coding nightmare, and I didn't expect an answer to even acknowledge it, but it IS an option. It's not an ideal option, or even really a good one, but it IS an option that I can understand. It would get those that want them off of your back and all of the artwork stays ingame and accessible if you can get past using resources better spent elsewhere. I mentioned it more as a last-resort than a true option.
3: Agreed. I second a re-vote.
Well i can tell you what i did with most of my rebirth cards. I sold them while they are expensive and tried to sell the in their most hot spots. Cards like biron malmoth and akiko generated me over 300 k clintz that way, than if i was missing the old art i bought the old card for realy little. So i definately know why most people voted to replace the old cards and compensate people with it that way i get to win eaven more clintz from a card that i used to have. And i am pretty shure i was not the only one to do it. And despite the fact that option A would make me eaven richer i prefer updated cards. Although i dont think there was needint a save on the RB system since player got used to it, and now they want more from it. And that is not something new to UR it Was done a long time ago with cards like rass berserk girl and kiki. The problem with them was that eaven after revamp they were still unusable kiki for example was so crap to soa and so behind the meta and cards from his type low power base and + power at 5 stars all had 9 power to compensate the soa like copper or louise and to put this in consideration kiki cr,s 8 solid base still made people feel they should give him bonus ability. so him being potential 9/8 or 9/7 was the option rather than 8/8 weak to soa manip pussy sob. which basicly sums the entire ur deck base . He was however the closet to making people happy. And keeping the Old kiki made the rest of the ur happy the once who put good amount of money .
However this big of a change in the game would suposable require investition and it could take time for all this work to pay off. So a good choise would be a fair announcement of when and what changes will be made may be eaven put some prepurchasing of packs like some other games do just to get people exsited to see the new stuff its something like a renesanse in clint city. Where good for nothing creeps take the power. or whatever its just a thought.
What is the point of voting?
To know what the opinion of the majority is
What is the point of arguing against what the masses voted for?
What do these people want?
They want UR to seek their counsel. They want dominion, they want to disregard the opinions of the many. They want their ideas to be followed, they want to be dictators. They think their ideas are above everyone else's.
For the staff to make the least amount of people unhappy, they would have to follow the majority.
Personally, I don't mind either way how the rebirth system is fixed. Just get away from the current system of doubles but separate cards you can use only one of but both need their own spot on the character list and a rarity that's not actually a rarity but the old card's rarity that's not conveyed on the card except when the staff says it is a rarity because the cards are a brighter blue.
