Hello all !
Two old hands have just announced they’re leaving the city’s streets to take a well-earned retirement. They are Chikko from the Bangers and the fearsome Vickie from the Montana.
From November 3rd 2008, these characters will no longer be available in the Shop’s packs. However, players who already own them can continue to use them as normal.
Be careful, sales for these characters have been locked on the Market until next Wednesday. So you'll be able to sell or buy them on Wednesday 10/29/2008.
Hasn't anybody noticed that Vickie's basically Guru Cr wiyh one less power and one more damage, She's also been around since The old Guru's release so i don't see Why she can't "Price-Rise" into the Millions... eventually... Chiko, i can understand staying in the 10,000's because he's as pathetic as Chad Breed Cr. But Vickie was the most expensive Non-Collector in existance so that should count for something... Plus Vickie's hard as nails to fight if you don't have the right card's in your hand (i'm looking at Dj Corr Cr, Jackie, Tenereva and Kiki Cr)...
Plus it's a nice little reward for the people who've worked or serched hard enough to find one of either...
Chikko's price is going to rise after a while, i think, and here is why. my main sway factor here is rass cr. one of 2 crs for the ulu watu, priced in the several hundred thousands. chikko and rass cr have the same stats (right now. i don't know if the stats will be changed). i understand that when rass cr first came out, no one got him for free, he probably didn't transition from an old card, he was made a new card, based off the bio of an old card. that is why he is so costly, because he is so rare. chikko will just take longer to reach that point. if someone wants to tell me that that was obvious, good for them, if it was obvious, then they didn't need to point that out, that should have been obvious too. if someone wants to try to refute what i'm saying, by all means go ahead. just pm me so that you don't take up message board space and bore the heck out of people (as in :tired
The new collectors wont massively price rise as there is a load of them out there atm, the old million costing CR's were much less widespread when they became thus (due to a smaller player base and less release time).
Whilst Chikko will likely rise above Chad bread (as chad was easier to come by) I doubt it'll go far above it and will likely be in the 10-15k mark for the forseeable future.
CR cost is a lot more about the sheer number of them out there than any particular usefulness or release date. The fewer of the card out there when it goes CR the more it will sell for, there's countless Vickie's out there and I doubt her price will ever reach the millions.
