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]

Saga i think the possibly problem might be the players who spent credits to get these cards and may have not gotten one
so player 1 buys 1 pack gets one much valued Rbs
player 2 buys 10 packs gets no Rbs
with the compensation only player 1 gets something. player 2 would not have spend those credits if that Rb was not available.
not sure if that is a problem. who knows.
out of curiosity, how will you set the price of an Rb? what prevents a rich person from buying all copies of an Rb and relisting at 3 times the price in order to benefit from the potential compensation.
there are also players who might have grabbed lots of copies of the old version of the card, since they are effectively rarer than Crs. they would get affected by this
all im saying is this probably a bit tricky and will have an impact on the market
just throwing out ideas out there
as for skins, i think what others have said above. retire the old art and then just put it on a page somewhere
@Saga i don't know, i think it is all possible to implement with just adding one array variable and changing variable containing current skins for each card.
But i think it's much more complicated when it comes to implementing all the changes - how to get them, how to turn current cards into skins. But not heavy.
thats the challenge i genuinely believe this is not going to be so easy.
leaving it as is and then establishing a new routine for future rbs might be the easiest way forward.
drop the rb label, do something with the old versions that doesnt just erase them or overwrite them.
this is the second time (at least) they are revisiting the rb thing. im sure theyve gone through all the possibilities. hoping they go with the least disruptive one
So old cards basically get erased saga? maybe not do that.
1) for Ur history
2) for players who collected the old
here is an old Rebirth annoucement, sorry couldnt find an older one. i think this was for Graksmxxt Rb
A new character has been revamped! Discover the new Rebirth card available now in the shop's packs (except New blood) or in next week's Leader Wars! Remember, once the Rebirth card becomes available, its original counterpart is removed from distribution. The Phoenix rank is within your reach! Good luck and happy gaming to all.
this makes it so that both cards have value.... new crd and original that will no longer be distributed.
but yes credits is probably a lot better than clintz. but i think youll still see the hoarding of rbs now in anticipation for reimbursment.
whatever you guys do, probably a good idea to pull all Rbs off the market and the originals for a few days before making the annoucement.
I think you just have to be cautious about how this unfolds
when packs like all Rb packs came out people were buying guaranteed or a chance at "new" cards. Collectors were spending real or virtual money to possibly own these cards. The company got revenue.
If we simply roll over the new cards and overwrite the old, basically the paying players got cards that they already owned but had to spend credits for. Credits they would not have spent otherwise. Clintz might be nice, but you are right, the more i think about it credit is better.
