I played a little of this but haven't picked back up yet. A few questions:
  1. Cygames is super-generous with boosters and shows how much Hearthstone is P2W now, but how are their rare card rates?
  2. I've heard the meta was ludicrously broken in Steam and mobile reviews. How much has that been fixed?
  3. How's the English dub? I have a very low tolerance for anything that vaguely sounds stiff or your average anime dub.
1. Its still super generous but meta deck cost is quite insane especially with they have mini expansion within expansion now. I really dont know from newbie perspective. As veteran myself I simply must play regularly to can keep managing with meta. But Mysteria runecraft deck is really cheap meta deck for newbie to start grinding.

2. Every card game player will bitch about meta. I thinnk the worst day of SV already way back passed. The wonderland expansion is the worst meta that I experienced in card game. Its like 2 years ago. And SV have better rotation model than Hearthstone.

3. I dont have high standard for this but the english dub sounds great to me and you can switch it anyway.

The exact rates are published on the game's website. The one thing to watch out for is the draw rates on the special leader cards are about half the rate as normal legendary cards.

The meta itself tends to whipsaw all over the place, but one thing CyGames is generally decent at is actually addressing issues with monthly adjustments to nerf (and even sometimes buff) cards, and they're not beyond emergency adjustments when needed

Compared to a typical anime dub, it's actually above average but certainly not perfect. The main characters are all fairly good but a tiny minority of the card voices come off a bit stiff.

However, I admit to liking Nexus's English voice more than her Japanese voice (sounds more threatening/imposing):

I'm really sick of playing against 'instawin' decks like Swordcraft that just clear out their deck until the reaper-shifted victory card shows up, or Havencrafts with that damn City of Gold card. I try to just play a fair match.

Admittedly I don't have time to enter the Legacy Cup, but I imagine this is probably accurate:


Anywho updated the OP realizing I forgot to add in the info about the second Fate leaders, and the Altersphere leader cards.

Now that you mention Oz, out of 4 legendaries I got, I actually got 2 copies of her back to back. RNG is weird, man. Too bad she has very little for value for me as 1) the card's rotating out anyway, 2) not forestcraft.

I haven't gotten a leader since Cerberus, lol
... ;_;
I opened :
Aldos will definitely prefer Daria :__;
Albert (my preferred)
Senalia (the portal one?)
Aria (will prefer the haven one)
Medusa (Cass would be great)
Orchis (again will prefer the other, I already happy with portal leader)

Rune also my least played class, part of it because Isabelle look so lame >__>

I'm currently running Machina Forest for Ranked Rotation. Hardly top tier deck, but to me it seems interesting enough with all the new cards. You know, it feels refreshing to break away from the usual forestcraft template. Also, to finish the game with Mechalance Elf's effect is my new favorite thing. Let's see how far I can push with it before the meta push me back.

Up to 40 packs being given away once again, 10 each from Brigade of the Sky through Steel Rebellion. 5 per day rotating as per how this usually is given away.

Also, don't forget to vote in leader candidates poll. I'm hoping for Cynthia for Forest but it seems Carbuncle is more popular than her, oh well...

Whatever the theme for next expansion is, I just hope Machina cards still get support (at least for current viable decks). It's going to be lame to let it die prematurely.

Also "Temporary Cards" are going to be a thing

Temporary cards are special cards that are available in your collection for a set period of time. They'll show up in your collection like any other card but are noted with an orange number.

And to kick things off, all players will receive a temporary version of each legendary card from all card packs from Classic Card Pack to Steel Rebellion.


There is also for 1000 crystals, a Steel Rebellion x10 pack with a guranteed Leader Card (from any of the sets), but there's a chance you can pull a leader you already have.

The first farer promo is such a mess. Still 0 friend request so far. I want the rewards, but lmao this is mission impossible (without actively finding and asking newbie on internet forum/board).

I admittedly just use an android emulator and make burner accounts each day and friend myself, lol


So with the patch coming, Dark Dragoon Forte is being limited to one card per deck in Unlimited format. D=

So I just saw what Sword will be losing this set and holy crap. Celia, Chromatic Duel, Valse, and Holy Bear Knight? That's anywhere from 9-12 cards, though the Bear had been phased out recently.
