View Full Version : Starter Decks: Will those flood the Auction House?

As we already know, everyone signing up for the game will be able to pick a starter deck. The question is, if those will be tradable?

Personally I really hope these cards will be bound to the account due to two main reasons:

1) People will start to flood the auction house with those cards without offering anything really reasonable

2) People will start to create as many accounts as there are starter decks to choose from, so that they can include all those cards in their start-up collection. If this should be possible, Cryptozoic could simply offer all starter decks right away upon account creation.

Actually point number 2 is probably the more important thing to think about. Since it definitely feels like there is at least 4 starter decks (giving you the option to have all 4 or have copies of some), It seems like the sentiment of pledging would be lost in that aspect because if they were tradable you could get 4 copies of each starter deck by just creating that many accounts.

On the other hand that means that if you were to "level" the cards in the starter decks and get them achievements etc. It wouldn't have a monetary value since it is not tradable. So it does present an interesting issue. I think some kind of system that once you get some amount of experience or use of the cards in the starter decks then they can be tradable to ensure that at the very least people can't just make accounts that do nothing but give them the starter decks.

The KS/CZE store starters will be tradeable.

The starters that you get when you sign up for a F2P PvE account are not tradeable.

I was under the impression that the KS starter decks are tradeable, but the regular account creation starter decks are account bound.

The starter deck that you are given on account creation is bound to your account - you will be unable to trade away any of the cards you get in that deck. Those that you purchase later will be tradeable like any other cards.
The other major reason for this besides those mentioned is to prevent a player from trading away their cards to the point that they are unable to play the game.

This is how it has been described. KS Starter decks will differ slightly in content from the free (+2 boosters) version gained when creating a "free account" with no KS attached to it. The "free account" starter decks plus two boosters will include cards that will never be tradable.

Make an account: Get an untradeable starter deck for free.

Activate your kickstarter account: Get no untradeable starter deck. Get 4 or whatever starter decks of your choice that are tradeable.

Just to be clear, all of the starter decks that we are getting for the KS can be bought by anyone for $10, except the dragon starter deck which is a KS exclusive.
