Hey not bad, more Ragefires are always good.

Talk about a short update.

Nice clarification, though.

Question: The 660K tier reward gave us +1 to PVE cards. Can that include PVP cards as well?

That makes sense. Yes, enjoy!

Question: Can the +1 Reward at the 660K tier apply to The Collector Tier yearly exclusive alternate art PVP cards?

That makes sense. Yes, enjoy!

Spectral Lotus Garden is still unaffected, correct?

That's pretty cool of them, glad people who picked up multiple pledges can get a set now.

Still doesn't affect PP tier. :rolleyes:

Pretty happy about the update. Collector's value just doubled. This means I can sell the exclusive arts I don't like once and still have one for the collection :D

Too bad the drafts don't stack. I'd be tempted to drop Pro for Collector just so I could get a full playset of the yearly alternates.

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE.... That we now have to wait until September ;p

Or you can keep 1 and trade 1 and just keep that extra AA nice and shiny in your collection.

From the way they worded the reward initially, I thought it was self explanatory? Or did they change it this update.

Just sell a kidney and add a Collector onto your pledge. You only need one to live, right?

Initially, it said PvE exclusive-cards.
Collectors are AA PvP cards.

They changed it in this update. That's why the paragraph after that quote explians that they will update the wording on the KS main page.

And I'll happy take them off of your hands, now to find one more copy.

Madican

I foresee any platinum I make from drafts to go straight into getting a copy of the AA cards. One copy is all I need for a collection.

I'm surprised they didn't do this in the first place because this allows the hardcore collectors to get 4 of every set and the casual collectors to have 1 of every set. Everyone would just be hoarding most of the cards or selling it at an even more ridiculous price otherwise. Then again, who knows how these alternate art cards will be handled once Hex launch.

Who wants to invest 1/6th of their AA cards into Madican's future draft winnings?

Madican

Joke's on you, I suck at drafts.

Partially why I got this tier; so I can get better without feeling like I'm wasting money.

Tyrfang
05-24-2013, 12:48 PM
I'd be impressed if you lost 100% of your drafts.

Madican
05-24-2013, 12:55 PM
I'm not that bad, but it is going to take me a bit of time to start thinking like a TCG player again. Generally I had a "Win 1, Lose 3" sort of pattern when I did it, though that was as a kid/teen when my opponents were grown men.

I think I have a good chance of impressing you then.

Wow look at the Collector tier go.

Fireblast
05-24-2013, 01:01 PM
Average is 1.5 wins.
So you'll most likely 1/3 and 2/3 drafts, just play the "casual" one for 1 booster prize/draft on average :)

does the collector tier bonus apply to GK also?

Yes since collector is included in GK

How do I math.

Both Grand King and Collector get the same number of cards.

(1 set of King, 1 set of Collector AAs, one +1 King exclusives from Collector, 1 +1 all exclusives (except lotus garden) from the stretch goal)

That's 3 of all KS exclusives (except lotus garden), 2 lotus garden, 2 of each Collector AA card.

I'm so tempted to up my extra King to a Collector now. Jeeze.

I just upgraded my king to a Collector. My wallet is going to kill me next month.

Madican
05-24-2013, 01:30 PM
If I could go Grand King I would without a second thought.

Damn you Hex for situating your KS so perfectly in between the moments of "Sudden money influx" and "Chance for even more money influx."

If the KS had been done in July I think I would have been able to get one. Oh well, Pro Player and all the below benefits are still good.

Yeah, upgraded. Grand King and collector. Between this and 500 into the Exalted 3e, my wife will kill me. LOL

Madican

All these wives really should have known what they were getting into when they married nerds.

We spend money like water on the most useless stuff and by God we love it.

I've got myself an Early Bird King, but now I'm getting tempted* to throw in a second King in order to have a full set of the alternative art PvP cards right off the bat. Having quadruplicate of both Replicator's Gambit and Pack Raptor would be just lovely.

* I probably can't afford this though. :(

Yasi

You don't have to do it alone. Try having someone spot you the money? I usually ask my online friends to do so anyway.

You didn't stand a chance, that struggle was just what little self-control you had left pretending that it had a say in the matter.

I'm kinda glad it had enough of a say in the matter to stop me from getting a grand king - thankfully that temptation has been taken away now ^^

Nah, I'm good ^^ I was kinda thinking about getting one to camp one of the pp spots, but with the 1-year-free draft I'm happy now.

Madican
05-24-2013, 02:21 PM
You know, it seems like Blood and Ruby are being shown the most in the previews, with some Wild. Not much Sapphire or Diamond though, at least not in the theme of those colors with S being reality/time warping and Diamond being...healing/protection/purity sort of thing? Like I said, we haven't seen enough of those colors yet.

Gwaer
05-24-2013, 02:22 PM
Yeah, upgraded. Grand King and collector. Between this and 500 into the Exalted 3e, my wife will kill me. LOL

I know all those exalted people. They kicked all of their best writers off the project, 3E is not going to be good =(

Pentregarth

I suppose the colours will correlate very strongly with MtG, the twists Crypto has been putting in have so far been more lore-wise (like dwarves being an evil race bent on sowing destruction or the cute, fluffly, militaristic bunnies bent on world domination).
So expect lots of healing/protection stuff from diamond and all kinds of meddling from sapphire. I'm still waiting for Hex's version of the counterspell ^^

Did you see their remanding squid?

Madican

Yes, but how does that fit Sapphire's theme of reality warping? I'm talking about more cards like Peek.

Hadin

It's a squid that remands, I would say that is the definition of a warped reality ;)

Turtlewing

It takes control of your opponent's cards which fits the meddling theme.

Madican
05-24-2013, 02:43 PM
Ah, so that's what remand means. Yeah, it does fit, but it's still just a few Sapphire cards compared to the hordes of Blood/Ruby cards revealed.

Tyrfang
05-24-2013, 05:04 PM
Plot twist: Madican, FireSummoner, Xexist all end up in the same swiss draft and someone else drops.
