Why don't we have the collector tier AA from Set 1? - It seems very easy to implement and I am disappointed we didn't receive (or at least know which card) before the Auction House was implements (i.e. monetary values assigned to cards). Please can we get an update ?

The client can already support Alternate Art version of cards (we have the Kickstarter 5, the Wheel of fate 3 and the Gen Con Ozawa) it seemingly can also support delivery of rewards to specific tagged accounts (Plat was deployed only to slacker backers in lieu of the second starter deck). So I don't really see why the AA collector card from Set 1 hasn't been rolled out yet, seems easy right?

Because they have a lot of other stuff to deal with right now? :p

You will get it. Have some patience.

We were promised 6 a year... I'm OK if they all come from Set 2 or 3.

We already know there will be 1 Collector Tier AA from Set 1, and the rest will be in Set 2 and Set 3, and that in future years they will be more evenly spread out. Shaq confirmed this a couple of months ago (he also said it was his fault the first one wasn't out yet, and that they were working on getting it in as soon as they could).

I admit I'd like to see these just because it will effect my collecting of other cards. If I get AA Vampire Kings it'd save me a bunch o' $$$, for example. If, conversely, I've already bought a playset of Vampire Kings, and their value suddenly drops because there's a new AA version people want instead . . .

Really? I'd want 4x of the normals even if I were getting the CTAAs as well.

So there are 3 Sets to 1 Block right? Don't we get 2 copies (Per Collector Tier) of 1 Collector's Exclusive AA card per SET for life? Meaning we will have 2 copies of 3 different cards per block?

Hopefully it comes out soon, I cant wait either.

It's not 2 copies of 1 card per set. It's 2 copies of 1 card once every two months on average. What set they will belong to, we do not know (except that only 1 will be from Set 1).

It is 6 AA cards a year. 2 x 3. Thus it is more like 2 AA cards every 4ish months, and with the plan being 1 set every 3-4ish months... well...

Why?

For me, I've got Collector tier through Grand King, and I I pretty much expect that Kickstarter backing to be the "peak" of my investment in Hex - I'll buy a little plat here and there but at this point I'm mostly using my free weekly draft and money from selling extras on the AH to fund further play on a rolling basis. Extra AA copies of a card I already have means three normal variants I can resell for more drafting fees. Extra AA copies of a card I still need 4 of mean (for example) Vampire Kings I don't have to buy -- and if it is a high value card like Vampire King or Angel of Dawn, that could be a nontrivial savings.

I can worry about stuff like getting a formal pure playset down the line, especially since it would be a lot more cumbersome to sell such a thing in Hex.

They could at least tell us which card it is going to be.

Exactly how many copies of the AA do we get anyway?

There are supposed to be six cards every year, with players receiving two copies of each card.

Starting to wonder if we will even see this before set 2.

Man, I'm going to want 4x of all the AAs meaning I'll need to buy 2 copies of each still. >_<
